Your Weekly Horoscopes: April 28 to May 4
Welcome to May (cue Justin Timberlake meme), which comes with a sweet new moon in Taurus on the 3rd. As always with new moons, this one invites us to indulge in what makes us feel most cultured, luxurious and delicious. There’s no other way to do Taurus season...
This week is all about you, Taurus. With the sun and the moon congregating in your sign, everyone is feeling your cozy, luxe energy. Indulge (keyword for this season!) in a brag journal or some other exercise of recognizing your own worth. Your stock is way up.
Clear your calendar, because you need to spend some time alone. This is especially difficult for you because a) you are so naturally social, and b) everyone likes to mingle in springtime. But Gemini season is up soon, and you need to gather your energy.
Go out and be merry with friends, Cancer. You’re in an especially good place, astrologically-speaking, to be energized—not drained—from social evenings full of good wine and bon mots.
This new moon brings you an opportunity that could raise your status within your community. Whether you’re moving up the ladder at work, getting married or going public with something important to you, you’ve got leadership magic this week. Please use responsibly.
Getting out of Dodge, Virgo? The new moon will bless your travel sector, but if you don’t have a vacation already in the books, it’s a good time to start planning one. Inspire yourself with some intentional FOMO therapy by diving deep into Instagram pics of Cartagena or Positano. Then book that flight now.
If you’ve felt an angsty gnaw that you haven’t achieved everything you want, this is the week to confront that beast and put some perspective around it. First step is not to judge yourself for feeling jealousy. Second is to recognize that you’d be jealous of yourself if you were anyone else...
Partnership is a focus, and the new moon could see you engaged or even married, Scorpio! But even if wedding bells feel far away, make sure to prioritize your most committed relationships and tell them how much you love them. (Because you do, you mush ball!)
Try to really exist in your body this week, Sagittarius. You’re plenty physical (centaurs love to roam), but your cerebral over-intellectualizing can alienate you from how you really feel. Skip the philosophical inquiries and take lunch instead.
Giddiness becomes you, Capricorn, so lean into the butterflies you’re feeling for your crush or significant other. You’ve probably got one or two grand romantic gestures in you (a love poem, a homemade treat), so strategically deploy one now.
If you’re feeling a little unstable (good habits slipping away, dust settling, chores piling up…I could go on), then use this week and this new moon to put your house in order—literally. The most fruitful tasks will be the least sexy, but you will feel so, so good when you’re done.
Whether you’re literally in school or just enriching yourself, this new moon is all about organizing your thoughts. Try an exercise to loosen the flow, like freewriting every morning this week. You may accidentally end up with a (viable!) business plan.
You’re getting showered with money this week! Well, not literally (although please TELL US if that happened to you), but with the new moon blessing your financial sector, you may spot a few new revenue streams. Feel free to invite them into your wallet.
