Capricorn 12/22–1/19
May the 4th be with you, and it will. You’ve been feeling a lot of darkness lately, much yin, so wow. Well yang is coming in with a bang and bringing balance to the force, baby. The proverbial April showers are metaphorically (and literally) bringing in the May flowers.

The new moon in Taurus on May 6th, will be a fertile time to plant your seeds so sew them and watch them grow, especially around May 21st.
Aquarius 1/20–2/18

When the Sun enters fellow air sign, Gemini on May 20th, expect the winds of change to blow you a kiss and whisper softly in your ear, “life is a breeze.” Embrace the latter half of the month gracefully, as this is a period of slowing down and reflecting. If a major decision can be delayed, then delay it, and Bob’s your uncle.

Pisces 2/19–3/20
