May opens on a lovely Taurus new moon on the 4th, coaxing us to indulge in anything that makes us feel luxe and fulfilled, whether that’s grabbing a green tea ice cream after lunch, playing games with our kids before work or reading actual, real books rather than our ex’s Instagram comments. This is not a time for ascetic self-denial—let yourself be a creature of comfort.
The full moon on the 18th is a blue moon (the kind that appears twice in one quarter, not one month), and it’s in Scorpio, the sign of letting go of toxic baggage. The myth of Scorpio revolves around death and rebirth, which can be a preferable order since it gets the tough stuff out of the way first. If we release some of the stress we’ve been holding in, we will feel so. Much. Better. That’s a promise from the moon.
Finally, on the 21st, Gemini season begins in a particularly twin-like fashion with both the sun and Mercury entering the sign on the same day. Spring is all about pollination, so expect a lot of stimulating conversations, hobnobbing and major flirting. Love is in the air, because with Gemini season, everything’s in the air!
