Your Weekly Horoscopes: May 9 to 15, 2021
Get excited, because this week, we’re in for a true cosmic treat. This isn’t just the best week of 2021; it’s the best week we’ve had since November 2019! On the 11th, we get a lovely new moon in Taurus—a final hurrah for the verdant season of the bull. New moons are for fresh starts and this one encourages us to bite off a little more than we can chew. We may find that the plan works out easier than expected. Then on the 13th, comes the moment we’ve all been waiting for: Jupiter—planet of abundance and opportunity—enters Pisces. Since late 2019, usually optimistic Jupiter has been struggling in the reality-focused signs of Capricorn and Aquarius. From now through late July, Jupiter gets to roam free in his home sign of Pisces. As Florence Welch (who was born with Jupiter in Pisces) once sang, “The dog days are over.” Let’s enjoy the good vibes while they last.
(Horoscopes follow for each sign. If you know your rising sign, reading for that will provide further insight.)
The new moon on the 11th is an undeniable call to celebrate yourself. Let your friends throw you that elaborate birthday picnic. Get into it—yes, even the socially distanced scavenger hunt!
