These 4 Zodiacs Are About To Start A New Life Chapter In May ’23

LEO (7/23 – 8/22)

Your new life chapter comes in the form of a person, Leo. There is someone you will cross paths with who could really use a person like you right at this very moment. You’re no stranger to a pet project, but you need to keep your eyes open. This person won’t be comfortable just walking up and approaching you. You may appear intimidating, inaccessible, or simply be an unknown stranger. But there is some connection between you two and the timing this year as spring approaches. You will feel a calling to help nurture this person in some way that you are specifically positioned to do. They may be in need of a friend, a mentor, a companion, someone who makes them feel seen and less alone. Be open to the opportunity to make a difference instead of so engrossed in your usual haunts and cronies. The seed you plant and nurture this month has the potential to become a tree you lean on in the future.

VIRGO (8/23 – 9/22)

Virgo, your new life chapter is about hard work. That may not feel very new to you at all, but it’s the endeavor in question that represents a clear break from the past. Whatever door recently closed for you, your go-getter attitude has already opened a new one, and this chapter is about giving whatever was behind it your full commitment. If you recently ended a relationship, it’s time to fully embrace singledom for an extended period of time. If you just left a job, allow yourself time to find a move that feels like a true fit or invest in that independent venture you’ve always dreamed of. If you’ve been in need of a new hobby, set your sights on something that is a true challenge. Whatever the particulars, the theme here is that this chapter will be long, and it will be hard. Just know that everything that’s come before has prepared you for this moment, and embrace the opportunity as a chance to prove to yourself exactly what you’re made of.

TAURUS (4/20 – 5/20)

Your new life chapter is one of observation and learning from others. Sometimes you feel so much pressure to do, to be, to change that you jump on any bandwagon as long as it’s moving, without giving much thought as to whether you want to end up where it’s headed. This May you will start looking around you for mentors, examples, and points of reference when it comes to figuring out exactly what it is you want from life. You may look towards couples with and without children to get a better feel for whether you want to be a parent one day. You may admire acquaintances who made career pivots during the economic shifts that came along with the pandemic. You may simply eavesdrop on the other patrons frequenting your favorite café and overhear a point of view that brings new clarity into your own life. The point of this chapter is not to compare or contrast yourself with others but to open your mind to the vast realm of possibilities you have the opportunity to steer your life towards with intention and purpose.

CAPRICORN (12/22 – 1/19)

Oh, Capricorn, you are about to get hit by a metaphorical bus in this next life chapter. I could pretend to feel sorry for you, but I know your world is going to get rocked in exactly the way it needs right now. You are going to fall head over heels in love, and it will take you by complete surprise. There’s no guarantee the object of your affection will be another person, although that is well within the realm of possibility. It could be a place, a new job, a hobby, or something as simple as a music album, but whatever it is is going to fill your life with a revitalizing energy. You will derive a newfound confidence from the experience, one that provides you with a positive outlook on life and your ability to tackle the obstacles before you. Sometimes all you need is something or someone to pour your energy into to be reminded how much happiness can be found in the simplicity of making an effort. This chapter is about enjoying every second of that energy well spent.
