Your May 2022 Horoscope

What’s in store for you this month? Gritty Pretty resident astrologer Emma Vidgen reveals all with your May 2022 horoscope…

ARIES

While there’ll be plenty of drama this month (thanks to eclipse season and Mercury retrograde) you’ll be feeling more chipper than you have all year. Brace yourself for a big burst of swagger come 11 May when Jupiter moves into your home sign, cranking up your confidence, optimism and energy levels. With Venus also on your side, it’s the perfect weather to brave a new beauty look.

Tip: Take the plunge with a new hair colour or dramatic chop

TAURUS

With eclipse season electrifying your chart, May looks to be anything but dull. How you define yourself—and your closest relationships—will be primed for a shakeup. With Uranus involved, unexpected developments could leave you feeling very differently about situations—or people—by the end of the month. No need to “do” anything, just draw on that famous Taurean patience and sit back as surprises unfold in their own time.

Tip: Trust unexpected changes and new beginnings are meant to be

GEMINI

With your ruling planet, Mercury, retrograde (10 May – 1 June), May looks like the perfect time to take a minute. Eclipse season adds to the drama, serving you a timely reminder of the importance of time alone (not always a Gemini’s favourite thing) for your mental health. Meditation, journaling or even hypnosis make the perfect antidote to an otherwise hectic month, with your social life hitting full throttle from 11 May onwards.

Tip: Try freewriting to help process big emotions

CANCER

Eclipse season marks the beginning of a new six-month chapter where friends and community become a major focus. With Uranus in the mix, don’t be surprised if you’re drawn to a new scene or strike up an unlikely friendship. Meanwhile your career should get a serious boost once Jupiter moves into Aries from 11 May. Capitalise on your work-week confidence by putting your hand up for new promotions and opportunities when they come around.

Tip: Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there at work

LEO

This month marks the beginning of a new season in your career, highlighting big changes around your professional ambitions and how the impact your home life. Keep your eyes peeled for new opportunities and unexpected synchronicities as Uranus promises to shake things up. Scary as it may seem, letting go will make way for amazing new pathways. Trust the process and don’t worry too much about hustling to make things happen. Eclipses have a way of creating opportunities where you least expect them. 

Tip: Stay open to left-of-centre new opps around your work

VIRGO

There’s no shortage of astro excitement this month, but the most pertinent energy for Virgo folks will be Mercury retrograde (10 May – 1 June). As your ruling planet hits reverse, follow the cosmic cue to take the pressure off at work and focus on stuff you can you can control. Expect decisions, approvals and communications to be, best case—slow, worst case—indecisive. Anticipating hold-ups and leaning into autonomy will make life more bearable.

Tip: Tackle something that’s been hanging around your to-do list

LIBRA

There’s a saucy change on its way this month as Jupiter fires up your relationship sector (where it stays until late October). A rush of optimism around your love life should put a shimmy in your step and a glint in your eye. If you’re coupled up, prepare to vicariously ride a wave of good vibes as your partner gets a big boost of confidence (and possibly capital). If you’re single, putting yourself out there could seriously pay off. Send the text or make the call—the skies are on your side.

Tip: Do something spontaneous and adventurous to supercharge your love life

SCORPIO

May promises to serve up plenty of thrills and spills – especially for Scorpio folks. With the eclipses ushering in a brave new world in your relationship sector, this month promises more twists and turns than a Paula Hawkins novel. Allow yourself to explore the idea that love doesn’t have to be hard. Follow a sense of ease and calm—that’s where the real magic lies. Talking money (or property) could be tricky, but remember any major developments on the commitment front will develop and blossom in the six months ahead.

Tip: Stay open to changing your mind—or approach—to love

SAGITTARIUS

Mercury retrograde (10 May – 1 June) sets the mood for a major relationship overhaul. There’s an opportunity to rethink how you express your needs when it comes to love, but tread carefully. It’s a time for reflection and reassessment rather than major upheaval. Resist the urge to rush in with ‘feedback’—well-intended words could be misconstrued easily. Meanwhile the eclipses usher in a new 6-month chapter where your health and wellbeing come into a focus. Trust what your body is trying to tell you.

Tip: Listen to your body – it’s telling you very clearly what it needs

CAPRICORN

If you’ve been thinking about moving house or buying property, the good vibes of Jupiter’s shift into Aries (11 May onwards) should fire up your search. No need to rush things, you’ve got until late October to seal the deal. Meanwhile Mercury retrograde promises to cause some hijinks in your calendar. Don’t overschedule yourself and you’ll emerge on the other side (1 June) feeling reasonably unscathed.

Tip: Take extra care to confirm appointments and double check scheduling details

AQUARIUS

Change is the only certainty this eclipse season as big shifts around how you balance home and work demand your attention. Unexpected developments promise plenty of excitement (surprise move, anyone?), kicking off a six-month period of endings and renewal. If you’re dating, be extra clear about what you’re looking for as Mercury retrograde could cause some messy crossed wires.

Tip: Declutter like you’re about to move house… just in case you are!

PISCES

There’s a distinct change this month as your ruling planet Jupiter changes signs (from 11 May). The shift brings a new lease on life around your cash situation. Windfalls and spontaneous spending are all on the cards; so keep an eye on things if you’re on a budget. In other news, Mercury retrograde (10 May – 1 June) stirs the pot on the home front. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself having the same conversation three times with your family or flatmates. As annoying as it may be, clarity is key right now.

Tip: Look out for fun new ways to earn extra cash – and spend it just as quickly

 

Hot tip: try reading these horoscopes for your rising sign as well as your sun sign. You can check the Co-Star app or have your charts read by an astrologist to see what your rising sign is.
