May 2021 Horoscope
It’s Taurus time–happy birthday! This time of year is perfect for an enchanting sign like yours. As a romantic, you’re enjoying this time of year where everything is in bloom and life is waking up. Soon, summer will be here and you’re ready to warm up right alongside it.
This is an exciting month energetically. May brings the conjunction of Venus and Mercury, a pair of planets that are friends. When Venus and Mercury come together, the result is more creativity, charm, art—and an open flow of ideas. Do you want something in particular this month? The communication lines are wide open during the conjunction; this is not the time to wait. It’s the time to get what you actually want.
Also happening this month is the full flower moon, the closest full moon of the year, and the second (of two!) supermoons this year. And some areas of the planet (including western North America) will be able to see a total lunar eclipse.
Keep reading below to see what May has in store for your sign! We break it down into “houses,” which means the areas you’re likely to see some action. And of course, check out your intuitively connected MONQ blend.

May 26, 2021: Full Flower Moon
May 29, 2021: Mercury Retrograde
The party is over, Aries—your birthday party that is. Don’t be too sad though, because the fun never stops with you. In fact, you’re so busy making plans for the world that is slowly opening up that you are actually a little overwhelmed by keeping track of all the menial tasks that come with it. Slow down (if you can) and let someone help you.
Try reducing some of your virtual meetings this month and reconnect with what you’re passionate about. What fuels your fire? What are you not doing right now that you want to be doing? When you answer these questions, you will reconnect with your purpose.
The new moon is a magical time for you this month. You will feel strong, grounded, and ready to take on anything. It will be a bittersweet moment where you can forget about pandemics and headlines and just be yourself, indulging in the moment. Don’t waste this time, Aries. You will reflect on it later as one of the happiest times of your life.
Diffuse Ocean this month to celebrate your zest for life.
Taurus the Bull: April 20 – May 20
During your birthday season, make sure you’re taking some time to support yourself. What do you really need? It isn’t all about unwrapping presents and hoping there’s something more in that card you received. It’s about using your birthday to reflect on another year, reflect on where you have been, and let go of what doesn’t serve you anymore. There’s no better gift than that.
Expect to experience unexpected generosity from others this month. It might be a stranger opening a door, a phone call from an old friend, or even someone who delivers packages to your home. Practice gratitude in these moments, and the good luck will come back to you tenfold later when you least expect it.
This is a great month for you to connect with friends. After all, once you let someone into your circle, they’re there for life. You need to be around the people that you can be yourself with, and there’s no better time to do that than the present as the world starts to open back up. Have a movie night, bond over a meal, or reminisce about days gone by with someone you love.
Diffuse Love this month to express your gratitude.
You’re ready, Gemini. This is your month. Show off your hard work to the people who love and support you—and to people you want to impress. Treat it like a crucial deadline or a test that you want to pass with flying colors, and the outcome will surprise you in the best way.
This is a good month to spend time with friends and family. With the world opening up and summertime just around the corner, there’s more to do. This is the perfect opportunity to start making plans with people who miss you! Someone might recommend doing something unconventional that is out of your comfort zone. Ask yourself, “why not?” Then, dive in to try something new. You might discover a new hobby that you come to love and enjoy for a lifetime.
Mercury retrograde is an optical illusion—and a good reminder to closely examine what is right in front of you. Are you not accepting a wonderful gift that you could reach out and grab with no trouble or guilt? Accept gifts with an open mind.
Try Peace this month to encourage contentment.
Cancer the Crab: June 21 – July 22
Cancers love throwing intimate parties at home, and May is the perfect time to do just that. Nobody is booked with summer plans yet, but it will be nice enough to entertain outside and enjoy some fresh air with good company. Kick back, relax, and enjoy an evening of comfort at home with your best friends and family.
Expect conflict with your family and your personal desires during the new moon. Don’t make decisions to please other people, even if you feel judged by others. These concerns from family are likely not focused or even reliable, but they will make you question your judgment. You are the only person who knows your true intentions. Don’t let someone shake your confidence and drive.
You’re extremely loyal, but don’t let that mean you stay in a relationship that isn’t serving you. Whether it’s romantic, a friendship, or a work colleague, this month may require practicing some distance. Evaluate what you are getting out of the relationship and determine how it needs to change for the better.
Try the Relieve Roll-On this month to deal with conflict.
You need to communicate with care this month, Leo. Don’t blurt out whatever you’re thinking in a meeting. Evaluate the entire picture and reassess the situation in front of you. When you speak or write that email, you may need to be vague to avoid conflict. Speaking too quickly or too brashly could lead to a roadblock in an important relationship. You may miss out on an important opportunity because of this.
You’re a natural leader, and someone is waiting for you to take charge. If you have been with your partner for a while, sweep that person off of their feet. If you want to impress someone new, go all out. You’re extremely generous in love, and this is the perfect time to show off that skill. Happiness awaits!
This is also a great month for getting honest with yourself. Did you spend too much money last month? Did you imbibe a little too much last weekend? Does your body feel sluggish? Get honest about any physical or lifestyle habits that need work. You’ll feel mentally lighter.
Sleepy Roll-On is your blend this month. It will help you unwind.
Virgo the Maiden: August 23 – September 22
Don’t forget that you’re more capable than you think, Virgo. Matters at hand require you to take charge right now. Go with your gut instinct and don’t back down in your convictions. Although this may be hard for a sensitive soul like you, your life will improve because of it, and you’ll experience a surge of confidence.
Rein in your spending this month. You know you’ve been a little loose with your wallet, and you always know when to tame it. This is a good time to evaluate what you want to do in the months ahead and plan accordingly. Even if something in that Instagram ad tempts you, stick to your budget and determine what you really need.
Someone is seeking advice from you this month. Be frank, real, and honest. There’s a reason people love getting practical advice from you. You are trusted, but don’t push your opinion on the matter. Be open-minded, and let them make the final decision. Their decision won’t impact you, but they will be grateful for your honesty in the long run.
Try Lively this month to match your confidence levels.
The full flower moon is your friend, Libra. Around this time, you’ll be inspired to dive into self-care. You will clear your schedule and give yourself more space to take care of things at home, such as meal prep, yoga, spending time with pets, and reading. You don’t always have to be “on,” and now is the time to secure much-needed downtime.
You might get caught up in some social media drama this month. Your feed doesn’t have to be the most beautiful, influential, or popular. Remember that not everything you see is real. The filters, the skin smoothers—even the backgrounds could be an illusion. Stick with curating a feed that you love, and the success you want will follow.
Expect to experience fear of missing out. Friends and family are filling your mind with “maybe I should do this,” but do you really need to? Don’t worry about missing out on something, worry about what could happen if you follow every whim and urge. Make decisions based on the best outcome for yourself. It will help you take a step back from envy.
Happy+cbd is your blend this month—you need a reminder that you are enough!
Scorpio the Scorpion: October 23 – November 21
You have butterflies in your stomach. You can’t stop thinking about it. You’re ready to make your dreams come true. All signs point to go for it this month, Scorpio. Take the risk. Ask for the promotion. Ask someone how they feel about you. Ask if this is the time to start writing that book you can’t stop thinking about writing. The outcome will surprise you.
Your home life’s on the rocks this month. You’re tired of being cooped up. You want to vent about your family with other people, but know that it’s not them, it’s you. If you’re confused about where you fit in at home or what your role actually is, keep healthy boundaries and do what you can to mend relationships. It’s not worth the battle to spill your family secrets to someone you can’t trust and never will.
You’re feeling everything this month, so expect great pushes and pulls in your energy during the new moon and full moon. This is a good time to work on your health. Exercise will calm your mind and ensure that you create balance during these energetic shifts. Take time to write, paint, and read—whatever soothes your soul. Focusing on positive activities will keep you from lashing out at others too.
Try Delight this month. It will inspire a burst of positivity during a challenging time.
Sagittarius the Archer: November 22 – December 21
You’re feeling nostalgic this month, which will make you especially emotional when Mercury retrograde hits. Gather up old photo albums, read old letters, reminisce with someone that you love. You’re missing someone, and remembering that person will help you emotionally clear out clutter and soak in the memories that you cherish.
Health is in your favor right now. Take advantage of longer days and use them to get outside and explore. You love adventure and your sense of it is banging at the door. You’re eager to explore and discover something new. Geocaching is a good activity for you in May. It will satiate your need to get out even if you can’t go very far.
You are the life of the party and people are starting to call you up to make summer plans. Make sure you don’t overbook, although it will be tempting. Double-check all dates to avoid potential conflict with a friend. Don’t say yes to what sounds good. Instead, do your research and think about what you really want. After all, you’re creating memories with everything you decide. Do you want to make your life unforgettable or mediocre?
Try Cozy+ cbd this month while you’re reflecting on the past.
You spent a lot of time nesting last month, and now the rewards are presenting themselves to you. Your home is clean. Your garden is planted. You’ve scrubbed every nook and cranny. Now, your home is truly that zen place you love it to be. Host a quiet dinner party with friends—you won’t have to do that last-minute cleaning frenzy. You’ll be able to put that personal touch on the night and everyone will rave about it for months.
May promises to be a busy month for you in the best way possible. You’re going to meet new people, see new things, and feel thrilled to do it. You’re going to enjoy long days and nights and have enough self-awareness to recover and rest properly while you do it. Enjoy this carefree time in your life. Possibility is in your corner!
Communication may be an issue with someone this month. You are communicating with someone who is as stubborn as you are, and it could get ugly. Even if you are in a position of power, try to see the other side, but don’t give in just because the other person is upset. Calmly explain your reasoning and make the decision to resolve the matter no matter what. The resolution might not be what you want, but your heart will feel at peace.
Joy is your blend this month. You’re about to have a lot of fun!
Aquarius the Water Bearer: January 20 – February 18
This full moon is your friend, Aquarius. You’re letting your feelings swing the doors on your relationships open and closed. You don’t always have to be the most stable person in your relationships. Make sure that it’s a two-way street no matter who you’re communicating with. The full moon will give you more clarity and open your mind up to examine these relationships. Be flexible when you need to, but don’t cut off connections for no reason.
Scholarly pursuits are piquing your interest all month long. You are restless and craving inspiration. You might want to paint, but you won’t take action to do it, further fueling creative dissatisfaction. Challenge yourself. Learn a new technique in your craft, read a difficult book, or sign up for a class. If you don’t chase the pent-up creative muse, it will lead to frustration and mental blocks later on. And if you aren’t experienced in what you want to do, who cares? You have to start somewhere!
A business opportunity may present itself to you this month. Think before you leap, as the partnership might not be what it seems. Do your research and don’t be lured by financial incentives.
Mountain is your blend this month to help you gain clarity.
May is such an important month for you, Pisces! You have been growing, learning, and appreciating your skills for what they are this spring. Optimism is abundant and allows you to face the day with an open mind. Your gut feelings will be spot on and provide much-needed guidance when you don’t know where else to turn.
Practice maintaining positive affirmations daily. This will help you keep your cool in a professional conflict this month. This conflict will not impact your position at work, but it could create tension with a colleague you consider a friend. Don’t feel resentful. Take the opportunity to receive constructive criticism and use this time to increase your performance.
Prepare for an active dream life this month! Your dreams are a gift that will deliver clarity, insight, and confirm the emotions you have been having. Don’t rush to get out of bed in the morning. Indulge in how these dreams feel and meditate on them. Write them down. Express yourself through your dream language to figure out what you really want right now and in the future.
Diffuse Zen this month. It will support your self-reflection.
