Scorpio Horoscope May 2020 — Love and Career Predictions
We know there’s so much going on in the world. Many of you may be feeling worried, frightened, or isolated right now. And though the stars don’t have answers to the multitude of questions running through our minds, there’s nothing wrong with finding solace and comfort in astrology, beauty, or any of your interests, for that matter. To learn more about how we’re approaching COVID-19 at Allure, see this letter from our editors, or check out this month’s full list of horoscopes for a note from our astrologer on how she’s using her craft to cope.
Welcome to May, Scorpio! Last month left you (gasp) working on your trust issues. There’s having healthy skepticism, and then there’s self-sabotage. It’s important to cut your loved ones a break, perhaps especially now. There’s a bright, full moon in your sign on Thursday, May 7. Whether you’re living with your partner, loving someone from a distance, or going it alone for the time being, have a sexy Scorpio night. Break out your favorite sex toy, light some candles, and make love.
Responsible Saturn goes retrograde in community-oriented Aquarius from Sunday, May 10, to Tuesday, September 29. This transit asks you to reflect upon your boundaries and, in particular, how you connect with others. While you love being social and are great at captivating audiences, you also have a tendency to retreat when things get rough. This habit can sometimes be harmful to your mental health. If you can help it, try not to cancel Zoom meetings or FaceTime sessions that are already on the books. Offer to help organize virtual get-togethers in your community when you feel up for it.
Beware of lashing out when Venus goes retrograde.
Beware of lashing out toward friends or lovers when romance planet Venus goes retrograde in chatty Gemini from Tuesday, May 12 to Wednesday, June 24. During this time, relationships may feel stagnant. You’re a sensitive and emotionally intense water sign, so you feel the change in your relationships more than most. Remind yourself that life is hard in general right now, and Venus retrograde is just a mean cherry on top. Rise above pettiness and be there for others.
Lucky planet Jupiter also goes retrograde from Thursday, May 14 until Saturday, September 12 in hardworking Capricorn. This retrograde offers you a reminder to tap into your creativity. While you can’t make COVID-19 go away, you can use your creative side to stay connected with loved ones, not to mention fight off boredom. All that emotional intensity produces great works of art. Gemini season starts on Wednesday, May 20. Get your flirt on by sexting lovers, getting in touch with crushes, or checking in on your favorite friends with benefits. Schedule a virtual date to celebrate the new moon in Gemini on Friday, May 22. Stay safe Scorpio, and see you in June!
