Have the past seven years have been like a roller-coaster ride adventure for you? Electrifying (sometimes terrifying) Uranus, the planet of unexpected change, has been in your sign since 2011. Life may have offered you some surprises during that time. Well, I have good news. It finally moves from your sign into Taurus on May 15. Take a deep breath. You are living the new normal, and you can relax for a few months before it goes retrograde. In all areas of your life, you might feel more settled in, focused, and ready to commit to your relationships and career in new ways. You have a more definite sense of your life purpose and desired destination. Now, set your guidance system accordingly, and you can get anywhere you want to go (metaphorically and literally).
Happy birthday! Recently, scientists discovered the upper atmosphere of Uranus is made up of clouds of hydrogen suffer, the molecule that makes rotten eggs smell so bad. Well, you can imagine the fart jokes circulating on the Internet! This news made headlines just weeks before Uranus makes a major ingress into your sign, where it will be until 2025. Uranus is the planet of change, surprises, and new beginnings. For a fixed-sign Taurus, these words can trigger an anxiety spiral. Your stable sign likes life to remain consistent and predictable. This Uranus transit suggests: Things are going to change! How? We don’t quite know. Uranus prefers to shock and surprise us, after all. To help ease you into its transition, Uranus shifts into your sign with a joke, asking you to take life a little less seriously. It asks you to play a little. Even if your sense of humor is too sophisticated for fart jokes, maybe you could at least let your face relax into a smile. There you go! Now, you’re ready for an adventure. It starts on May 15 and will continue on and on.
Dear Gemini, have you ever been accused of having an “evil twin” or a mischievous aspect of yourself? If so, you aren’t alone. In fact, you have ancient Greek mythology to thank for your sign’s evil twin conundrum, and specifically the story of Gemini twins Castor and Pollux. Castor was born of a mortal father, but Pollux was the son of Zeus. The pair was inseparable. When Castor died at the hands of the twins' rivals, Zeus offered immortality to his son Pollux. However, Pollux chose to grant half of his immortality to his brother. Thus, Zeus made the pair alternate between living in lush Olympus (the seat of the gods) and Hades (the underworld).
Now, think about your life. You have creative, life-giving aspects of your psyche that help you stay in the flow of positive manifestations! However, you also have tricky, misbehaving ones that thrive on a little mischief from time to time. Realize you will eventually find a healthy balance between the two, and give yourself a break! Your ruling planet is finally moving forward and fast. That means your evil twin can have a break, and you can move mountains in all areas of your life again.
Your soul has chosen an interesting lifetime. To be alive at this moment in history means you’ve signed up for an adventure. Moreover, you were born in this era as a Cancer, a cardinal sign with an inherent urge to make things happen. Well, this month, you could receive significant insights about how to be an even more dynamic agent of change. You could accept an invitation to join a professional group or be elected to the board of your favorite cause. You might even think: It’s time to run for office! If your heart moves you to action, you will start planting seeds that will bloom for years to come. Pay attention to what happens on May 15, as the events of that day could ripple change throughout your life.
Creative inspiration is like a lightning bolt— sudden, dynamic, and maybe even shocking. As a Leo, you were born to express yourself. So, when you have that spark of an idea, you feel alive and in tune with the entire universe. It’s time for brilliant insights, as your higher self is calling to you now. If you have been in a creative funk, you wonder if you’ll ever get your groove back. Of course, you will! It’s a mindset, after all; and it’s one that can change.
When adventure calls, what do you do? Do you answer? Or do you come up with a list of a million reasons why adventure doesn’t make sense? In your life right now, the universe invites you to open a door of opportunity, explore a new destination, take a risk, or make a big life change. This month, follow your intuition and see what unfolds. Around the time of the New Moon in Taurus on May 15, your optimistic outlook will help you stay in a positive flow for good things to manifest in all areas of your life.
Venus, the planet of culture and beauty, rules your sign. Because of that, you were born with an innate appreciation for the finer things in life as well as a sense of style. While your accountant crunches numbers, you think of all the enjoyable things those numbers can buy. Even if you denounce materialistic ways, you can admit having appreciation for beautiful material things.
Well, Jupiter has been shining in your financial sector since October, and it may have been recently expanding your desire for abundance. During a Jupiter transit, you could earn more than usual, but it is essential for you to budget wisely to make the most of any extra coming in.
The simultaneous occurrence of events that appear significantly related but have no discernible causal connection.
By observing synchronistic happenings in your life, you begin to realize synchronicities add up to form a trail of guideposts the universe leaves for you to find your way. Think about your life right now. Since October, have you experienced more strange coincidences? More déjà vu? If so, consider those signs you are on the right path and keep going.
May ushers in a time of significant change for all of us as Uranus, the planet of surprises, moves into Taurus on May 15. Because Uranus is one of the slower moving planets, it stays in a single sign for about seven years. When it switches, we all feel a shift. Perhaps you have intuited this shift. Maybe you have sensed it for some time. For you, the changes could manifest in your day-to-day life, including your work, health, and self-care routine.
If you want a rich harvest, you have to plant the right seeds at the right time. Now, this metaphor applies to all areas of your life. You are about to start a productive, creative season when you can manifest and grow anything. 2018 overall is a time of infinite possibilities for you. While you usually place one foot in front of the other and carefully navigate your way through life, you enter a new paradigm starting May 15, one of luck and synchronicity. Sudden, unexpected changes could inspire you to work less and play more. You could find more enjoyment in everyday life. Relaxation is the key to open the door of creativity. Therefore, take up a new hobby or revisit one from your childhood. Break out of the usual routine and have fun.
As I started writing your horoscope, I had a vision of nomadic tribes, following a trail of abundant provisions and living with healthy detachment, ready to pick up and leave when the need arises. Technology has helped us concept a new type of nomad, a digital one, who can run a business from anywhere with good wifi. As an Aquarius, the idea of being free like a digital nomad (or an actual one) could appeal to you from time to time.
Maybe you have settled into a community. Perhaps you even own a home within that community. If so, the nomadic life isn’t for you. However, you can learn a little something from that lifestyle and go along more with the flow of life. If you have been anxious about the future or nervous about circumstances in your life, this is a month to let go of all fear and embrace the unknown. It’s adventure time, and while you may not become nomadic, your inner rebel spirit is about to awaken in a big way.
On May 15, Uranus, the planet of surprises, moves into your third house of communication, where it will be until 2025. As this planetary transit begins, you could receive sudden insights, bursts of inspiration, and a craving for knowledge. Follow all intuitive hits, as they could lead you on an intellectual (or actual) journey. On this adventure, you could decide to teach a course, write a bestseller, or learn a new marketable skill. The New Moon on May 15 will offer hints about this new beginning. Attune yourself to your internal guidance system by trusting your gut sense.
