Step out and celebrate, Libra! Uranus, the planet of radical change and awakening, will exit your house of committed relationships on May 15th. For the past eight years, you've managed to attract all of the crazies. Your relationships have been chaotic, shaken up, or broken. Somehow, you managed to survive. Uranus has now entered your house of intimacy and sex, so it's time to get your groove on. The wilder the better. Uranus' energy of radical change is also beckoning you to break away from all you've outgrown. Where have you grown stagnant? There are new opportunities when it comes to money and inheritance. Pay attention! But don't fret and make sure to have fun; you have eight years to sort out the changes.

Feeling restless, stale, complacent or bored in this part of your life? Do not fear! Uranus' energy will ignite a spark for attracting new people into your orbit. Be prepared for anything to inspire and awaken you, maybe even some freaks and geeks. Pushing for us to feel alive, Uranus will entice all, whether single or attached. But before you run off with the first hottie you encounter, think about it, pause, and be rational. We know how hard it is for you, dear Scorpio, to let go of anyone you entice. It should be a most interesting next eight years for you.

Embark on a new love affair, take off to Italy for a cooking class, do something just for the fun of it. Just promise it will not be all work and no play this month. Enjoy!
Go home, Aquarius! Your ruling planet, Uranus will be moving into the sign of Taurus on May 15th. Along with the dawn of the new moon in your 4th house, this month highlights all things relating to home—your residence, roots, and family. It's a good month to veg out on the couch, visit your parents, nest, and redecorate. This may involve a relocation or move to a new place. With Uranus in the 4th house, there is a restless urgency to create a sense of home, literally and figuratively, that is completely different from what you've experienced. Let go of old conditioning. Be free, dear Aquarius, to build anew. Afterall, freedom is your very essence.
