The last week of the Taurus season is all about expressing ourselves and letting the people around us know how we feel. Here’s the horoscope for May 16-22.
1. Aries (March 21–April 19)
Let’s get this straight, Aries. If something isn’t working out, you gotta dump it, my love. You can’t force people or things to work a certain way, and sometimes, it’s better to get yourself out before you go in too deep. The last week of the Taurus season asks you to reflect on your thoughts and pull your act together. You are the main character of your life, so don’t let anyone else steal the stage and play the main character.
AAE Pro Tip: Dial a friend for a little heart-to-heart or just a casual bitching session to feel better.
2. Taurus (April 20–May 20)
Happy birthday, my dearest Taurus people! The horoscope for May 16-22 brings the last hurrah before you bid the birthday season goodbye. So, this week, you are free to play the blame game and get away with almost anything. But like everything else in life, you must remember to not overdo it because some things can’t be unscrewed. And this is the perfect time to let yourself off the hook and be a little experimental. So, be expressive and stay away from anything or anyone that looks like trouble.
AAE Pro Tip: Focus on pleasing yourself more than others this week and you might get some actual joy out of it.
3. Gemini (May 21–June 20)
Sit tight, Gemini, because your season is just around the corner. But before we hit play on the birthday month, there are certain things that you need to sort. And a little time reflecting on your thoughts can help you filter out the extra stuff. All you need to do is trust your gut and you’ll see that you have an exciting journey ahead of you. Also, you’ll probably need to play therapist for a close one this week, so first, sort your own head and then give out any advice.
AAE Pro Tip: Keep some chilled wine around to be at your creative best and throw free advice at people.
4. Cancer (June 21–July 22)
Looks like you’re in a tough spot, Cancer, and there is no point being unreasonable if you want to sort your shit. Sharing your thoughts with people will help you in getting a new perspective and seeing situations in a better light. You’ve got a lot of decisions lined up for you in the coming week, so you better straighten yourself up before committing to anything. Don’t be afraid to ask what you deserve because you know your own worth and no one else gets to decide it.
AAE Pro Tip: Be vocal and express your thoughts, but don’t get involved in any petty drama.
5. Leo (July 23–August 22)
The horoscope for May 16-22 asks you not to hover over a slippery slope to figure out how deep it is because everything can go out of control with one wrong step. Instead, step back from situations and people when your temper is rising and realise what you actually want to do. Acting in the heat of the moment can cause more damage for you than for others. Shift your focus on other important things like your job or your career and put all your energy into your goals.
AAE Pro Tip: A little introspection is on the cards, so don’t shy away from looking at your true self.
6. Virgo (August 23–September 22)
My darling Virgo, even though you are a know-it-all, there is still scope for you to learn something new every day. So, keep your mind open but your mouth closed to really see what people are trying to show you. Sometimes, taking a back seat and letting people do their own thing instead of bossing them around can lead to great results. Throw in your ideas and respect what others bring to the table like you actually mean it.
AAE Pro Tip: Listen to everyone but stay true to yourself when it comes to making any big decisions.
7. Libra (September 23–October 22)
The horoscope for May 16-22 is asking you to focus on matters of the heart this week. Building up walls and letting people stay out isn’t going to go down well. So, the last week of the Taurus season is giving you a chance to break free from whatever is holding you back and let yourself out there. Whether it is reigniting an old flame or getting to know someone completely new, Cupid is looking out for you. Don’t worry and play along.
AAE Pro Tip: Small changes can lead to big rewards, so go ahead and implement them this week.
8. Scorpio (October 23–November 21)
Things may seem like they are not in your control, but that is completely okay. Trust whatever is happening around and with you because it is all a part of the process. It is liberating to just let everyone and everything be and focus on your own thing instead of hearing about everyone’s fuck-ups. So, take it easy this week, let go of all judgement, and don’t hold back from being your best self. You are way more than what people believe and it is time to show them your brilliance.
AAE Pro Tip: Be in charge of yourself only and stop worrying about everyone else’s business and dramas.
9. Sagittarius (November 22–December 21)
The horoscope for May 16-22 asks you not to board the overthinking train and end up in a pit of self-doubt and insecurities. The Taurus season asks you to see yourself beyond the roles you have been assigned to fulfil. And it asks you to allow yourself to be authentic and honest with yourself. Don’t keep living your life being someone’s something and start living your life as your own biggest cheerleader and support system. You are whole, Sagittarius, so learn to be content with it.
AAE Pro Tip: Practising a little self-love and taking care of yourself before anyone else are the big themes for you this week.
10. Capricorn (December 22–January 19)
Okay, I can’t sugarcoat things anymore and I have to be blunt about some stuff, Capricorn. You’ve been in and out of similar situations for a while now and you haven’t been able to find a solution to put yourself out of your misery. So, if you are in the mood to put all of this behind you, you may have to put in some extra effort to untangle the mess. Clear your head and focus on what it is that you want in your personal and professional life. Don’t keep sitting in the grey area and feeling sorry about things.
AAE Pro Tip: Sometimes, we must make tough decisions in life, so if you want that killer body, you must skip all that junk.
11. Aquarius (January 20–February 18)
Someone has been too busy with themselves to notice the people around them. Well, here’s some news for you, Aquarius. Get your head out of your butt and pay attention to what’s happening around you. Because your close ones might be feeling a little alienated and distant from you. The horoscope for May 16-22 asks you to make sure your friends and family feel appreciated and cared for by the smallest of gestures. Be warm and welcoming, and show up when someone needs you.
AAE Pro Tip: Brownies are a great way of luring people to open up, so get some gooey goodness to begin with.
12. Pisces (February 19–March 20)
Dear Pisces, if you are feeling overwhelmed about something, avoiding it is the last thing that will make it disappear. And sharing your feelings is the big theme of the week for everyone, so why not hop on and play along? It is alright to tell people about your insecurities and doubts because once you do that, you’ll realise you are not alone. So, this week, express yourself to a close friend, family member, or even your dear diary. That is the only way to move past the block and get yourself back on track.
AAE Pro Tip: If nothing works, treat yourself to a tub of ice cream because that never fails!
Have a lovely week, beautiful people.
