Read what your sign’s 2022 horoscope predictions have in store for you or check out the Virgo personality profile.
Welcome to May, you charming Virgo. During April, you saw yourself healthily working through relationship issues, through communication and hot sex. These themes continue when the lover planet Venus enters fiery Aries on Monday, May 2. This transit continues the theme of health, but don’t worry, that doesn’t mean that you have to stress about getting into any kind of accident. It just means that you continue to work on the health of your relationships, both with partners and yourself. As the healer of the zodiac, you have a knack for problem-solving through loving communication.
On Tuesday, May 10, your ruling planet, messenger Mercury, begins one of its infamous retrogrades in Gemini. All the rumors are true, Virgo. Because Mercury is your ruling planet, these annoying retrogrades can affect you more than other signs. But you’ve also already lived through too many of them to count. You’ll be fine. Just remember to allow extra travel time, expect communication delays, and practice self-soothing and patience.
The lucky planet Jupiter moves into brave Aries on Tuesday, May 10. This transit continues your health theme, but this time, it does serve as a reminder to stay on top of your routine check-ups. With Jupiter on your side, don’t stress too much. Thanks to that busy mind, you can be prone to anxiety, Virgo. If you get annoying tasks such as going to the dentist out of the way, you’ll find that your stress levels are lower, which is always good for your health.
And speaking of stress levels, Sunday, May 15, brings a full moon and lunar eclipse in Scorpio, which could stir up feelings of paranoia, Virgo. Eclipses are called cosmic wildcards because anything could happen. As a result, while you may associate eclipses with going outside as a grade-schooler to watch, astrologers tend to advise staying in and taking it easy. But you don’t have to be alone. Because this one falls in Scorpio and your 11th House of Friendship, it’s an ideal weekend to chill out with your best friend, watch movies, and enjoy snacks.
Enjoy the downtime, Virgo, because Gemini season begins on Friday, May 20, and it tends to be one of the most social times of the year for everyone, even you, whose corresponding tarot card is the hermit. So far, May has brought big conversations, staying on top of your health, and an annoying eclipse. Don’t you think you deserve to go out and have some fun? Challenge your introvert side by accepting party invitations and hitting the town.
When your ruling planet, communicator Mercury, which is currently retrograde, moves out of Gemini and into Taurus and your 5th House of Pleasure on Sunday, May 22. This sees you talking about desires, fantasies, and kinks, either with your partner, friends, or therapist. If you are exploring fetishes with a partner, remember the importance of discussing boundaries and creating a safe word. Sometimes, the communication mishaps of Mercury retrograde can sneak their way into the bedroom. Thankfully, when warrior Mars enters brave Aries on Tuesday, May 24, you receive cosmic courage from the universe that helps you be honest, vulnerable, and receptive, helping you have the sexiest time even if Mercury is retrograde.
