May 17

By Sylvie Chace

With the passing of the Scorpio full moon that happened on the May 10, we find ourselves in a transitional period. You may find yourself reflecting on how far you’ve come, yet facing a great abyss of what is in store next. With Taurus season soon transitioning into Gemini, there is a sense of urgency in the air, something big feels as though it’s waiting on the horizon, but whether this something is positive or negative is up in the air. We can choose to spiral downward or spiral upward.

ARIES 3/21 – 4/19

You are quite the impatient one, Aries! You may find yourself tending to the garden of your needs, however you keep pulling everything up and out of the ground every minute to check to make sure everything is growing as it should! Sit back. Change takes time and you may not see immediate results. Keep tending to yourself, the seeds are planted and soon they will grow. .

TAURUS 4/20 – 5/20

You are not one to be trifled with right now, and it’s not because of anger but because you have such immense personal power! Their is a field of energy around you and you may have noticed it’s causing a flow of fulfillment. Good things do happen, and when the bad things also happen, you’re handling it with grace and ease. Nothing can take you down.

GEMINI 5/21 – 6/20

For someone who’s known for their adaptability this transitional period is hitting you in a hard spot. It’s different than just knowing all the right things to say, or feeling like you can fit in anywhere. There’s a deeper change that must be made. There is something in you that needs to be cut off. Sometimes it’s hard to know ourselves without the pain, but you are more than what holds you back.

CANCER 6/21 – 7/22

One of your less favorable traits is your habit of not knowing how to tell someone how you truly feel. You just don’t want to hurt their feelings! But you’re hurting yourself by denying your emotions and making yourself uncomfortable. Speak up and be unashamed of your emotions. Think of this as a fresh start to be direct and vocalize how you really feel.

LEO 7/23 – 8/22

Sitting still and keeping quiet are not things that come naturally to such a bold person like you. However, contemplation is necessary for growth! Being alone isn’t scary because you can keep yourself good company. Spend time with you and get to know the deeper innermost parts of yourself. It’s not going to hurt to recharge your batteries.

VIRGO 8/23 – 9/22

You have been feeling the shift and you’re prepping for great change as if a natural disaster is in the forecast! To-do lists, planning, and teamwork are kind of your thing, but don’t fret, Virgo. You have always had the tools within you to handle this. You’ve handled everything that’s ever happened to you, so just take a deep breath and feel confident in your strengths.

LIBRA 9/23 – 10/22

Slow and steady wins the race, Libra, and of all the signs you are the most competent at keeping level-headed during challenges. However, right now the challenge is staying committed. While you may feel totally at peace with your goals, you need to make sure you follow everything through until the very end. Setting intention is only step one.

SCORPIO 10/23 – 11/21

While change is something that’s supposedly ‘scary’ to some, you laugh in the face of these challenges. You are the sign that embodies all transformation, and through it all you’re finding yourself having fun. Each wave, each shift is just another opportunity to bloom into a fresh version of yourself. Be open to these waves, let them crash over you and turn stone into sand.

SAGITTARIUS 11/22 – 12/21

You are feeling an ending come on. Maybe someone isn’t prioritizing you like they used to, or something that you thought could be good for you just isn’t working out. Change is hardest when we don’t have control over it. You may find yourself feeling restless and anxious about what comes next now that an ending is in sight. You are a natural optimist, so find the good in each ending as it brings a new beginning.

CAPRICORN 12/22 – 1/19

There’s two sides to every coin, and right now you’re confident to the point of coming off angry. While on one side, having a passionate and wilder energy is fun and can be healthy, on the other side you may be using this wild energy as a mask so no one assumes that there’s something underneath you’re trying to cover. It’s showing, Capricorn. You can’t hide a fire, you just need to let it burn, for better or for worse.

AQUARIUS 1/20 – 2/18

You are known to be a little bit of a contradiction at times, while you are a naturally social creature you are also one to feel like an alien. Right now is the time to harness your observant nature and retrieve. This is your time to sit with yourself and get all those things you said you were going to do, done. Sometimes we have to withdraw in order to get our work finished and this is your opportunity.

PISCES 2/19 – 3/20

Something’s got a hold of you, Pisces! It may just be one little thing that’s throwing everything else in your life off. You’ve tried all your old methods to fix it but nothing is working. There is a transformative energy in the air, and you need to breathe it in. You can’t fix anything with your old tricks now, you have to respond in new ways and develop a deeper method of understanding.
