For astronomy enthusiasts, May 15 was a crazy day. There was a full moon and a lunar eclipse in Scorpio, affectionately known as a “blood moon.” This, coupled with the arrival of Gemini season, means that we are called to seek peace and quiet whenever we can. We must prioritize finding balance and harmony during this chaotic season of our lives if we are to not only survive, but thrive.

Aries (March 20 to April 19)

Find freedom within the rules. As a fire sign, your energy is often like a spark ready to transform into something more. However, if left unchecked, your passion will consume you and everyone around you. Find easy-to-follow settings and let your creativity run wild. Rules are a wonderful tool that you can use to your advantage.

Taurus (April 20 to May 20)

Happy birth season! Trust that the job is done. You are probably worried, especially in areas of your life that concern others. A big challenge I encourage you to take on is trusting your peers and loved ones. They know what they are doing. If they can trust you and your growth, you can extend the same courtesy to them.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20)

Happy birth season! You are preparing for a great adventure. You deserve to have as much fun as humanly possible, but it will do you good to get back to basics once in a while. Who are your best friends? Where is your house ? Don’t let yourself be carried away by the magic of something new and then forget your “old” life and experience culture shock when you return home.

Cancer (June 21 to July 21)

Don’t ignore your sensitive side. Because the Moon rules your sign and has just gone through a series of intense events, you can go through equally intense situations, and that’s okay. Immerse yourself in soothing water-based experiences: take a tea, draw a bath. Your sanity will thank you.

Leo (July 22 to August 22)

Do you feel lost? Do not be discouraged because the way forward is unclear. You will understand. Try to let your subconscious navigate through the forests of indecision, and eventually you’ll emerge on the other side with at least a seed of a plan. Cultivate this plan until it bears fruit. This new chapter in your life should be exciting!

Virgo (August 23 to September 22)

Don’t pretend to be happy if you’re not. As a mutable earth sign, you have a knack for adapting and resolving conflict. It means that you tend to put others first. However, it’s time to take care of yourself for a change and face the deep sadness behind your cheerful facade. Problems don’t go away if you just stop looking at them.

Libra (September 23 to October 22)

When was the last time you did something crazy? This week, do something outside of your comfort zone. Maybe you’ve never been fishing; maybe you would like to learn how to roller skate. Find something COVID-safe and beginner-friendly and try something! Now that it’s summer, you can “choose your own adventures”.

Scorpio (October 23 to November 21)

You are in pros and cons mode. After the full moon and eclipse on Monday in your sign, you probably felt the effects. Don’t be discouraged by the hand you recently received. Solve your problems the proven way: with facts and reasoning. Is what you desire going to be better or worse for you than what you already have?

Sagittarius (November 21 to December 20)

Don’t push yourself too hard all at once. It can be tempting to dabble in tasks until they’re done, but that’s not a sustainable way to accomplish many of life’s daily activities. Learn to allocate your time responsibly and logically so that you can follow a flexible schedule of your own design.

Capricorn (December 21 to January 19)

Congratulations! You are usually strict with yourself, knowing that you have to stick to a certain schedule, a certain appearance, the list goes on. However, you have done a lot of good recently. In a journal, try listing all the different amazing things you’ve accomplished recently, and you might start to change the way you see yourself.

Aquarius (January 20 to February 17)

Are you impatient? Perhaps there was a thorn in the side for weeks, even months. It’s time to face it. You probably don’t like being angry, but rage is part of human nature. Don’t hold back — express that anger in a healthy way. Your inner child is already throwing a tantrum. Your adult body can also follow suit.

Pisces (February 18 to March 19)

Purify and humble yourself. Often you can run to others for validation or an ego boost. This most often manifests itself on social media. It can do you good to stay off social media for a little while. Figure out how long you’ll be away, then commit. Find out what life without Twitter can feel like, then decide if you really need to come back.
