Aries horoscopes for May 2020
#KeepYourEyesOnThePrizeWhile you have been driven by major professional ambitions for the better part of a decade, for the past few years, you may have experienced nothing but roadblocks. Get ready to put your petal to the metal, because, finally, all that hard work will start paying off, quite literally in increased earnings. You may get a raise, find new clients, or win new contracts, so get out there and pitch. The only hitch is that you will be fatigued and extremely low energy for the second half of the month. May's financial boon won't last forever, though, so gather up all your energy and push through.

Taurus horoscopes for May 2020
#AllThatGlittersIsNotGoldYou have a hidden love of traditional, well-crafted goods that never go out of style, but this month your desire for the finer things will be going full tilt. With Venus retrograde in your house of material possessions and self worth, you may go on a spending spree of high-ticket items in order to cope with life stresses or impress friends and neighbors. You may be so blinded by uncharacteristic covetousness that you adopt a "shop now, budget later" attitude, which could see you literally breaking the bank. Instead of seeking meaning through reckless buying, try to find true enlightenment through a good book, online learning or a spiritual practice like yoga.

Gemini horoscopes for May 2020
#FeelTheForceThis is an excellent time to open up your consciousness to the wonders of the world around you. In times of societal darkness, the brightness of humanity burns brighter, leading to feelings of inspiration and a renewed faith in life. While your sign normally likes to keep things light, you will be able to forge deep, solid bonds with those closest to you, who will prove to support you through thick and thin in the upcoming years. With Venus retrograde in your sign from mid-month, you should resist making any drastic, unalterable changes to your appearance. Put off cosmetic procedures, as well as new hairstyles or colours until July.

Cancer horoscopes for May 2020
#FriendsAndLoversThe heavy, restrictive pall that has been hanging over your love for the past several years has finally lifted, opening up new, more invigorating horizons. This month, you may finally pair off with your soul mate by transforming an existing friendship into a romantic one, or, alternatively, by being introduced to someone through your social circle. Make sure to spread the word you are up for a blind date. You may be feeling extremely tired from mid-May, when long-buried emotional issues get dredged into the light. This is a good time to seek counseling so you can deal with the pain of past psychological trauma once and for all.

Leo horoscopes for May 2020
#SuccessAndSycophantsAfter years of thankless drudge work, you could make powerful strides in your professional life this May. If you have been tirelessly working on a dream project, it may finally launch or be given the go ahead. While things may move rapidly, you know that success did not happen over night, making your accomplishments all the more satisfying and profound. When it comes to social life, you may want to remain slightly skeptical of an old friend who re-emerges with apologies and nostalgic reminisces. While their outreach may be genuine, they could also have ulterior motives. Take things slowly before letting them benefit from your innate warmth and generosity.

Virgo horoscopes for May 2020
#SwipeRightYour dating life does not need to go on hold during this time of social distancing. All of the current quarantine measures and fears could have a silver lining, as you are an old-fashioned who longs for the days of chaste courtship, where people got to know one another before rushing into things physically. This is an excellent time to use technology to meet potential mates and get to know them gradually, without feeling the pressure to have a real-life meeting. Take advantage of apps, forums, social media groups, discord servers, dm's — the possibilities are endless. Allow online text messages to gradually evolve to voice and face chats. The slow reveal could sweep you off your feet to sudden, eternal love.

Libra horoscopes for May 2020
#StayHomeYou’re an extremely sociable and conscientious sign who loves cultivating a wide array of friends and acquaintances. You hate any discord in your platonic relationships, so you rarely turn down an invitation and are constantly on the go. Social distancing will give you the excuse to stay in with your sweetie. An entire month of coos and cuddles can bring you incredibly close and forge an unbreakable bond. If you don't live together, you may decide to take the plunge and start planning to cohabit. For singles, a roommate situation could swiftly develop into something more. If you have travel plans during the second half of the month, expect delays and be careful of spending over budget.

Scorpio horoscopes for May 2020
#StraightTalkWhile you tend to always be a secretive sign, during the past few years you have been more tight-lipped than usual. With not much else to do these days, talk is becoming more important. Perhaps all this forced spoken communication is giving you the practice needed to cast aside fear, anxiety and suspicion to totally open up to your romantic partner, leading to feelings of spontaneity, joy and exhilaration. Old, worn-out, non-verbal methods of manipulation and seduction will backfire, leading to estrangement. If you are single, declaring your feelings to a crush may lead to something more, or at least give you the closure to move on.

Sagittarius horoscopes for May 2020
#EndOfAusterityNo matter how you budgeted and toiled, it may have been hard to establish a firm financial footing during the past few years. Even though the current job market is a bit shaky, it is also stirring up new, lucrative opportunities. Be on the lookout and ready to pounce, because chance networking encounters and new professional projects may arise quickly, leading to a dramatic increase in income. In your love life, exes may pop back into your life, stirring up drama with your current partner. Beware of overly idealizing the past before making any unalterable choices. Alternatively, a lover may be dragging up old hurts as a way of manipulating and guilting you. Emotional clarity will return in the final days of May.

Capricorn horoscopes for May 2020
#ThePowerOfLoveWhether single or in a relationship, your magnetism is off the charts this May. Those looking for love will have suitors lining up in hopes of winning your hand. If you are practicing social distancing, digital dating is particularly auspicious at this time, allowing you to be swept off your feet with a mere swipe of the screen. For those in an existing relationship, you will be able to rekindle the flames of passion, spontaneity and intellectual closeness. You are feeling much more freewheeling than you have been in a long time, and this newfound sense of warmth is the key to making sparks fly. Misunderstandings at the workplace will be on overdrive during the second half of May. Colleagues will be extremely touchy and overly sensitive, so try and be conscious of the impacts your words and actions.

Aquarius horoscopes for May 2020
#NoPlaceLikeHomeWho needs to travel afar or rush around your local environs, when adventure and good times await you within the confines of your own home. Spending time with family will bring nourishing feelings of rootedness and togetherness that will affect you to your core, providing a feeling of belonging that you have been lacking as of late. Even spending time just chilling by yourself with the doors locked and blinds closed will give you the psychological distancing needed to calm your mind and subconsciously resolve your inner issues. In terms of love, the one who got away may reach out to say hello during the second half of the month. Don't scare them away with an aloof demeanour that does not mirror how you really feel.

Pisces horoscopes for May 2020
#LockdownIsOverWhile most of the world is setting up plans for a post-lockdown society, your own social quarantine has already been lifted. For the past few years, it may have been extremely hard to connect to a friendship group, but all that changes this May. Networking will be a breeze, allowing you to forge powerful connections that will last far into the future. Do not hesitate to reach out and communicate online with existing acquaintances or to make new connections. You will be feeling extroverted, upbeat and able to speak openly and without inhibitions. A situation regarding home or family, however, may be causing confusion. Either old dysfunctional hurts are being dredged up from the past, or you may be experiencing problems regarding a move. Wait to make a decision until early July.
