It's officially Taurus season, baby. The sun moved into Taurus on April 20, 2018, to stay until May 21, 2018. Your monthly horoscope for May 2018 is marked by this sign's characteristics, including love for familiarity and stability. When the sun is in Taurus, we enjoy the finer things in life: rich foods, smells, sounds, and sights. That's not all though; the sign of the bull is known for being stubborn, for sticking to what they know, and for their distaste of the unfamiliar. Depending on where the sun in Taurus falls in your chart is where you'll feel this influence most.
That said, after last month's challenging horoscope, there's an incredible amount of relief in knowing there's some stability around the corner. And the best part is, we don't have to deal with a nasty Mercury retrograde to shake everything up. This month is about building on your progress, enjoying the fruits of your labor, and steadily working to achieve more.
On May 20, 2018, Mercury moves into Gemini, and after a long month of holding our tongue, we might feel like we have a lot to share. Wait until then to explore new horizons, to socialize, and to try new things after a month of sticking to what you know.

The sun in your first house allows you to shine bright like RiRi, and everyone will be noticing you this month. Not to mention your planetary ruler Venus is moving into Cancer, and you'll feel the desire to partner up with someone. If you're single and looking, this is your month to make a move.
The sun is in your 12th house of secrets and dreams, so this month is a good one to sit in solitude and see what your subconscious whispers at you. Keep an ear out for the stuff you'd rather not hear and confront it, because it'll likely surface at the full moon on May 29, 2018, if you don't.
Since 2011, you've been going through a lot of sudden changes or revelations when it comes to your career.

Taurus energy is about to invade your eighth house of sex, death, and transformation. Although Libras tend to filter their understanding of themselves through their relationships with others, now is a time to focus inward, dig up all the dirt on yourself that you can find, and face it head on.

The sun isn't the only planet moving into Taurus. On May 15, Uranus, the planet of innovation, rebellion, and sudden change moves into Taurus as well, and into your seventh house of partnership to stay for a while.

You're not going to love hearing this Sagittarius, because of how much you love being on the move, expanding your horizons through travel and exploration, but this month is all about your day-to-day responsibilities.

But the more solid you are at home, the greater your foundation is to launch yourself off to new adventures. Be patient.
Put down the calendar and calculator, Capricorn. With Taurus lighting up your fifth house of pleasure and theatricality, this is a month for play, not work.

The spotlight will be on you, and you'll enjoy the confidence boost.
Your ruling planet Uranus, the planet of creative rebellion and innovation, is moving into Taurus in your fourth house of home and family.
