You’re a nurturer, Cancer darling. Governed by the moon and represented by the crab, your sign offers a warm, emotional embrace that bolsters your family and friends through unconditional love. Now, it’s time to broaden your horizons: Taurus energy activates the area of your chart associated with your extended network, including humanitarian causes. You excel at building support systems, and you’re ready to harness that skill to effect broader change.
Since 2011, rebellious Uranus has been cruising through Aries, creating radical changes in your career and professional life. On May 15, the planet shifts into Taurus, activating your social consciousness. For the vast majority of us, this is only time we experience Uranus’s movement across Taurus: Its last Taurus cycle was from 1935 to 1942, and the next won’t occur until the year 2109. During this revolution, you are inspired to use your emotional intelligence to challenge the status quo. Your sensitivities attract you to important social issues, so consider ways you can use your gifts to make a difference. Uranus’s movement into Taurus coincides with a new moon (also in Taurus) on May 15. On this day, make a bold gesture that symbolizes your commitment a cause. Remember, Cancer babe, this isn’t just about financial contributions: Though money is a powerful tool, so is your incredible empathy in action.
On May 19, Venus, the planet of love and beauty, spins into your own sign. After several weeks of tense romantic pressures, this transit helps lighten your load. Finally, you feel more centered and increasingly in tune with your friends and partners. Coupled Cancers can expect dynamic boosts of confidence within their relationships, while single crabs may find themselves linking claws with like-minded lovers.
The following day, on May 20, the sun shifts into Gemini. Gemini energy is frenetic, spontaneous, and often hyperactive, attributes that most creature-of-habit Cancers have a difficult time tolerating. During Gemini season, you are increasingly aware of situations and circumstances that make you feel uncomfortable, so give yourself permission to dip out of stressful scenarios early. After all, next month is your birthday season, so you need to get your beauty sleep.
The month concludes with a full moon in Sagittarius on May 29, highlighting the area of your chart associated with routines, wellness, and day jobs. During this lunation, consider ways you can make subtle shifts in your schedule to support your emotional needs. Have you been spending too much time at work or, on the flip side, binge-watching too much TV? The end of the month offers a much-needed moment of self-reflection, so be sure to embrace this electric moon’s offerings. Prioritize rest as you reevaluate and treat yourself to the Slip Silk Pillowcase, which is designed to promote radiant, healthy skin.
