Welcome to May, majestic Leo. Last month, you made time for self-care and helped put out fires due to any bickering in your friend group. But, when Venus, the goddess of love, beauty, and abundance enters its home sign of Aries and your 5th House of Pleasure on Monday, May 2, you are too busy having the best sex of your life to worry about petty drama. Don’t worry, you don’t even need a partner to enjoy orgasmic blessings from the stars. Use this transit to treat yourself to a new sex toy.
Mercury goes retrograde in its home sign of Gemini on Tuesday, May 10. Take extra precautions during this Mercury retrograde, dear Leo. It falls in your 3rd House of Communication, so, as a result, you may be extra prone to misunderstandings. If you can, try to avoid any major relationship talks during this time. But, if they come up, choose your words carefully, and work on staying grounded. You’re a powerful fire sign, but as a result, sometimes you can say things without thinking that you later regret. Get your thoughts down on paper or discuss them with a therapist prior to any sit-downs with a lover or partner.
Damn, Leo, the pleasure just keeps on coming this month (pun intended). The lucky planet Jupiter moves into Aries on Tuesday, May 10, once again lighting up your 5th House of Pleasure. When you have Jupiter on your side, everything is just easier. So regardless of your relationship status, whether you’re debating sliding into a cutie’s DMs or in a long-term relationship, romance flows like water. During this time in your love life, the changes that go down feel natural, fluid, and even fated. Trust the stars and enjoy.
Take it easy during the weekend of Sunday, May 15, which brings a full moon and lunar eclipse in Scorpio. As you may know, both full moons and eclipses can be dramatic and emotional times. Because this transit lights up the part of your chart that rules your social life and public image, you may feel anxious and paranoid, worried that everyone is gossiping about you. They’re likely not (and if they are, it’s probably out of jealousy, fabulous Leo), but fight the eclipse-induced stress by laying low and practicing lots of self-care, such as treating yourself to a massage or some new makeup.
You love attention, Leo, and may be turned off by the idea of laying low. Fear not. When social Gemini season begins on Friday, May 20, you’ll have so many party invites that you might even miss staying home to avoid eclipse drama. And when the fighter planet Mars enters bold Aries on Tuesday, May 24, even more stardust falls on your love and sex life. Gemini season is a great time to meet someone or start dating again if you’re single. And, if you’re partnered, your relationship will benefit from getting out of the house and enjoying fun activities together.
