Horoscopes (May/June 2023)
ARIES (March 21 - April 20)
In order to surf a wave, you have to paddle awkwardly into the water like a kid on their stomach on a wheelie board. This month, embrace any awkwardness and discomfort with your body. The truth there may lead you to unexpected feats of grace and power.
TAURUS (April 21 - May 20)
It’s typical to concentrate more on beginnings than endings, especially in the digital era, especially in spring. How can you make your endings as meaningful as beginnings? How can you celebrate, mourn, and acknowledge what has passed as you transition into a new existence.
GEMINI (May 21 - June 21)
Love will come into your life this month like little rainbows refracting through water on a windshield. Allow it to refresh and hydrate you. It’s okay, even pleasant, if it comes over you like a fine mist, rather than a downpour.
CANCER (June 21 - July 23)
If you argue with someone close to you, afterwards walk away and consider their feelings as you would consider your own. Walking away is the most important part of doing this. If you can, walk somewhere beautiful. You may be surprised to find how much they consider you too.
LEO (July 23 - August 22)
The value of chaos is in what is revealed in our response to it. Consider the unknown strengths strong winds unearth as they break things down, the relief experienced in the buildings that remain standing. Imagine a quality you don’t feel you possess, and how it might emerge as you’re tested by what you can’t control. Allow that hope to help you weather current or coming storms.
VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)
You are a gifted friend. Others have to practice friendship, especially since it isn’t regarded as essential in our culture. Be patient as your friends develop what you are already good at, and be proud of your talents as a friend. You have a lot to teach there. Do it gently.
LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)
When you space out, you tune into silence. If you listen closely to the silence, you may hear a hum. Make a space for that silence, physical or otherwise, and see what revelations are there.
SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)
Your sign is often called intense. Remember that cooking is considered a peaceful and generous act, yet involves competency with fire and knives. Think of a delicious curry, where the chiles are mellowed by time and complementary spices. Likewise, know that your intensity is an important means of caring, and refine it.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)
You are very interested in tangible space, th11e tangible reality of the world. However, the material reality of your surroundings is constantly changing, for better and sometimes for much worse. What could you commit to that will outlast what might happen to any of it? Are there relationships, values, sensations that will always be true for you? What is always true?
CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)
You may feel a profound scarcity of generosity in the world at large right now. You yourself may find it hard to be open as you doubt that your gifts will be received. This is the right season to watch animals care for their young, in real time or onscreen. A bit of faith in the nature of things may inspire you to intentional acts of kindness.
AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)
We all have compulsions we would like to change. From habit to addiction to avoidance, the best way to intentionally change an unconscious behaviour is to be present to the world as it is, not worry about how or when you will succumb to your impulses. More breathing and observing, less promising and analyzing.
PISCES (February 19 - March 20)
You’ve been dreaming about something. It’s time to begin. And how do you begin? By forgetting about how long it will take you to finish. It doesn’t matter whether it helps or stalls you to remember that when you’re finished, there will always be more for you to do. It is true.
