This isn’t about playing favorites, Taurus babe, it’s just a fact: Your sign is most impacted by this month’s celestial motion. At this time every year, the vibrant sun returns to the very position it occupied at the time of your birth. This solar return, more commonly referred to as a birthday, fuels inspiration, excitement, and a renewed sense of self. Here, the sun kicks off a new cycle around the zodiac, so use the next few weeks to explore a personal spring cleaning. Release the things that no longer serve you, whether that’s toxic thinking, unhelpful habits, or stale relationships, and embrace your uninhibited aspirations.
For those of you who still use a paper calendar, grab a red marker and circle May 15.
