Your Weekly Horoscopes: May 31 to June 6, 2020
Are we ready for some major revelations? On the 3rd, Venus meets the sun in Gemini, marking the halfway point of her retrograde period. When any planet meets the sun, there’s an ever-so-brief moment of clarity, and this one is all about our relationships, our aesthetics and our values. What’s been going down since May 13th? Maybe an ex slid into your DMs and you’re having some feelings about it. Maybe you botched an at-home gloss kit from your trusted stylist. Maybe you still can’t figure out the best way to distribute that small business loan. This is a great time to reflect. What do we have and what do we desire moving forward?
Unfortunately, we don’t have a ton of time to get lost in our thoughts because on the 5th, we have a lunar eclipse—an extra potent full moon—in Sagittarius! (Yes, somehow it’s eclipse season once again.) Eclipses bring catharsis. Whatever’s been hidden comes to the surface. With this week’s eclipse in Sagittarius, we’re meant to discover that we don’t know everything. What have we been getting away with? And what do we still need to learn?
(Horoscopes follow for each sign. If you know your rising sign, reading for that will provide further insight.)
On the 3rd, as Venus meets the sun in your sign, do a luxurious clay mask and try out that eyeshadow palette you bought months ago but haven’t had the time to really explore. Give yourself a makeover like no one’s watching—because seriously, who is? The lunar eclipse on the 5th falls in your commitment sector and you may find out some surprising information about a client, a contract or your pending divorce. This is a challenge for your negotiating skills, so go in knowing what you want.
This week’s mantra: Be in it to win it.
The lunar eclipse on the 5th brings some “excitement” to your daily grind. Maybe you have to track down a super important UPS package that’s gone MIA. Maybe you must venture to your first social distance dentist appointment. Maybe you’re given a huge project with a quick turnaround at work. Whatever it is won’t be fun, but it’s easier if you remind yourself that the thing that’s bothering you is really the loss of control. On the 6th, put on your headphones, cue up your favorite podcast and get busy.
This week’s mantra: Only do as much as you can.
This week’s lunar eclipse on the 5th falls in the part of your chart that represents all of life’s joys: romance, creativity and, of course, children. Eclipses bring surprises. So—surprise—you might be pregnant. Or maybe your boyfriend just goes all out for this week’s quarantine date night. Anything is possible. On the 6th, while you’re coming down from the eclipse excitement, a friend might hit you up to ask for a loan or a favor. Generosity keeps you grounded, so give what you can.
This week’s mantra: Life’s a rollercoaster. Buckle up.
An intense discussion with your wife or your work wife on the 2nd leads you to question WTF you’re even doing with your career right now. Should you just drop everything and become a nurse? This existential crisis only lasts so long because on the 3rd, you’re rewarded for your excellent leadership and regain some confidence. The lunar eclipse on the 5th falls in your home sector, so watch out for family drama or an unexpected kitchen appliance failure. If the situation leaves you stressed, remember that you always deserve peace and privacy.
This week’s mantra: Trust the choices you’ve made.
Are you making time for yourself? Though you’re certainly caught up in busy work at the top of the week, try to take some time on the 3rd to return to a rewarding practice—light some candles before your online restorative yoga class or sip a cocktail as you do your reps on Duolingo. The lunar eclipse on the 5th brings some shake ups to your daily schedule. Something simple that you’ve been ignoring may derail your entire day so watch out for car trouble, bike woes or a super stressful email.
This week’s mantra: Find shelter in the storm.
With this week’s lunar eclipse falling in the part of your chart that represents your income and finances, you could be facing an unexpected pay cut. If you do end up losing money, spend some time on the 2nd and again on the 6th, brainstorming about creative ways to bring in more cash. Something seemingly minor like payment on an overdue invoice, a refinanced loan or a tax refund could make all the difference. Even if you’re getting a raise, make sure to collect everything you’re owed.
This week’s mantra: With money comes more money.
If an argument erupts over housekeeping with your partner or your roommate on the 2nd, the resolution comes through working together. So share a nice meal on the 3rd and say you’re sorry. The lunar eclipse on the 5th is in your sign and leaves you feeling extra self-conscious or on the spot. Instead of trying to laugh away your woes, sit with them. And buy yourself those scrubs and facial exfoliants that have been sitting in your Sephora cart since March. You’re worth it, and now’s the time.
This week’s mantra: Exfoliate your face, exfoliate your life.
Though you’re trying to get ahead, this week is the time to get away—whether that’s physically or mentally. The lunar eclipse on the 5th falls in your unconscious sector. Something might be blowing up—at your company, your kid’s school or with a big-picture plan. But ultimately, it’s out of your control. Instead of getting stressed, practice mindfulness instead. A long walk in nature or a night at your BFF’s upstate cabin might be in order to clear your head or even just some square breathing could do the trick. Take some time for yourself and don’t let a false sense of urgency get in the way of your self-care.
This week’s mantra: Whatever it is, it’s not about you.
Maybe it’s time to slow your online shopping roll, dear Aquarius. On the 2nd, your credit statement arrives with a rude awakening. Sure, your friends have been proud of you for letting yourself have a little fun—splurging on natural wines from your local shop and upgrading your wardrobe. But, as you know, these things add up. Luckily at the lunar eclipse on the 5th, you get some new inquiries for your side hustle or a friend offers you a new gig. If you live in the abundance of truth, the cash will flow to you. As cheesy as that may sound, authenticity can mean a windfall to your bank account.
This week’s mantra: Let the money come to you.
The lunar eclipse on the 5th marks a major moment for your career, but perhaps not in the way you were expecting. Whether it’s your boss announcing her sudden retirement, an offer from a job you thought was out of the picture or a sudden urge to completely change your path, let yourself feel your feelings. It’s OK to cry during the weekly office Zoom meeting or on your walk as you make eye contact with a pensive French bulldog. Talk it out with your mom or your roommate on the 6th and take all the time you need to process.
This week’s mantra: Don’t fight the feelings.
You are feeling quite overwhelmed by a constant stream of texts, emails and phone calls coming from all directions—your coworkers, your BFF and your quarantine crush. This energy peaks on the 2nd when you miss a deadline because you’re too caught up in the group text. At the lunar eclipse on the 5th, you get some shocking news about someone you admire—a former mentor or maybe even your in-laws. Take a break from your phone to put all that gossip in perspective and remind yourself of the big picture.
This week’s mantra: There’s more to it than meets the eye.
You’ve been living more frugally than usual, but as Venus meets the sun on the 3rd, treat yourself to something nice. On this day especially, you know what you really want so forget that dress you’ll never wear or that book you’ll never read and get yourself the take out salmon dinner of your dreams. The lunar eclipse on the 5th falls in your shared resources sector, so watch out for surprising news about a loan or your tax refund. If you’re on top of your investments, you may already know what’s coming.
This week’s mantra: Treat yourself!
