May 2022 Monthly Horoscopes

Taurus season, with its soft, early springtime vibe, often feels like an ideal moment to slow down, much like the sensual Bull. But this year, the fixed earth sign plays host to the first eclipse season of 2022, so it wouldn’t be surprising if you’ve felt like the energy of the moment is way more intense than usual. This time of year always feels like a transition out of the darkness and toward more light, but depending on how these eclipses are hitting your natal chart, May could deliver major change.

But looking back and making sure you’ve tackled any and all loose ends on big projects, past relationships, or old emotional wounds is also a key theme this month, given that Mercury — the planet of communication, transportation, and technology — will be retrograde in social Gemini and comfort-seeking Taurus. This three-week transit may compel you to reflect on your connections, tune into your curiosity, and prioritize your sense of security.

This month is one of the most astrologically intense of the whole year, so if your emotions are all over the map or you’re dealing with more highs and lows than usual, you can rest assured you’re not alone.
