The stars have a lot in store for the month of May. On the 20th of April, Venus entered Aries, an unstable house for the planet. Beginning April 20, creators and artists may feel uninspired — their writers’, painters’, and musicians’ block will be at an all-time high. While this is happening, the new moon is also entering the House of Taurus on May 4, speeding up its rotation to finish its cycle. This means positive energy and luck, especially in the financial field, for all signs.
This May, take some time to nurture your creative energies. We recommend seeing a show, and, since the signs are in luck this month, lotteries might just be the way to go. Below, Broadway Direct has taken a close look at each of sign’s relationship to the stars. Based on what your horoscope has in store for you this month, we have the show you can’t miss.
Aries: March 21–April 19
This month is for managing, completing tasks, and figuring out logistics, especially when it comes to your love life. Your opportunities will heat up during the beginning of the month, before slowing down around the 15th. But don’t worry: They’ll kick back up around the 20th. Given what this month has in store for you, we recommend seeing a thought-provoking show with a special someone, a show that will spur debate to allow you to focus your energy there. TryNetwork, Ivo van Hove’s latest Broadway production, starring Bryan Cranston, Tatiana Maslany, and Tony Goldwyn. The journalism-centered show will depict the management and logistical work of your personal life on stage.
Taurus: April 20–May 20
Happy birthday, Taurus! This month is extremely lucky for you. Mercury is officially in Taurus as of May 6, which will make the homebody Taurus much more social, talkative, and fun! As Venus moves into Taurus on the 15th, you’ll see luck in both your love and financial lives. Mars is in Cancer for the second half of the month, so your tendency to express love with small gestures will be appreciated even more. Take advantage of the full moon in Scorpio on the 18th — May will be so lucky for you if you do! With so much good fortune heading your way, now is the time to enter the Hamilton lottery as often as possible — don’t throw away your shot!
Gemini: May 21–June 20
Until the 15th of May, Mars is in your sign, which will make you more awake and excited. This will push you to try new things and make new friends, which is your strong suit anyway. But after the 15th, you will find yourself having to concentrate more on your home life. Normally a partier, you will find yourself working at home and having to make time for chores. Get out of the house in that second half and see those friends you made during the first half. You and your friends should go to see something new and exciting: Try The Prom! It is fun, it is meaningful, and it is hilarious. Perfect for bonding with new party pals.
Cancer: June 21–July 22
It’s a good month for romance and tenderness for you, Cancer. The first half of your month may be tumultuous in your close friendships and love relationships, but it will all smooth out over the second half of the month. Pay special attention around the 15th as love may blossom for you and someone you’re close with. If you already have a special someone, this relationship will only grow stronger for the two of you. This month, you need to see a pleasant, romantic show with that special someone. (It’ll send the message right away that you care. The stars are in your favor for a tender gesture like this.) Our pick? The Samantha Barks and Andy Karl–led Pretty Woman!
Leo: July 23–August 22
Something is on the horizon for you, Leo! You want to make a decision, and you should on the 15th, when the stars will be most in your favor. When this decision comes to fruition in the form of an opportunity, you will have reason to celebrate! On the 20th, the sun and Mercury will give you the impetus to go out with friends. Why not party atThe Cher Show with Stephanie J. Block, Teal Wicks, and Michaela Diamond? This will also give you the perfect opportunity to break out that Cher-inspired outfit that you know will be a complete showstopper.
Virgo: August 23–September 22
Mercury is in Taurus in May, which means your concentration will be next level (you’re already great at it, so just imagine the possibilities). This month, use the weeks between May 5 and May 20, when your concentration is at its peak, for thinking about highly theoretical subjects and analyzing data. Around the 14th, Venus enters Taurus, which will also solidify your financial and love lives, bringing you comfort and ease in those areas. Go see a show you can think deeply about — we suggest What the Constitution Means to Me.
Libra: September 23–October 22
The first half of this month is for closure, Libra, since Mars remains in Gemini until the 15th. Once Mars moves to Cancer, your drive may slow down — finish your projects and sign important documents during the first half of the month. Don’t be prone to hesitation in the second half of the month; Mars being in Cancer may cause you to be dormant, so press forward with aggression to counteract this. For the first half of the month, though, Venus is in Aries, which will give you opportunities to impress someone romantically. We suggest taking them to a show that is both funny and romantic, active and sweet, just like you! Give Hadestown a try. The musical follows the intersecting love stories of the ancient gods Hades and Persephone and the young lovers Orpheus and Eurydice. Who knows? Your special someone will no doubt be so moved by the love stories being displayed on stage that they might just see you in a different light.
Scorpio: October 23–November 21
The first half of this month will be a bit quiet for you, as Mars is in Gemini, which is causing you to feel a bit uninspired. You know something is coming, though. Once Mars is in Taurus, you can achieve the empowering stabilization in your career and love lives that you’ve been looking for. Your ideas will be praised by your coworkers and your abilities to think creatively and critically will be top-notch the second half of this month. Maybe see a show with a coworker who especially values your input this month. Have an enriching emotional and intellectual experience — go see The Ferryman.
Sagittarius: November 22–December 21
Since Mars is in Gemini until the 15th, you are filled to the brim with energy, creativity, and emotion! This period of time will also liven up your love life since you have the motivation to go on more daring and interesting dates. This energy isn’t all positive, though — avoid making promises. Your excitement might lead you to make decisions that are not in your best interest. Until the 14th, your love life, your savings, and your work life will all be in protected good favor. Do something daring and see a show that is as fun, weird, and energetic as you are this month: Be More Chill.
Capricorn: December 22–January 19
Your friends and coworkers will be extremely important the second half of this month, since Mars is in Cancer after the 15th. Figure out who is important to you and take advantage of their allyship. Between the 5th and the 14th, you will find well-being, security, and calmness in life. Be wary, though — you may fall into the trap of relaxation and forget your inherent drive at work during this time period. The full moon on the 18th will be important to you: It’s a mystical night for you when you may find the opportunity to advance a romantic relationship. Show you care by seeing a show together that will bring your hearts closer. See Beautiful.
Aquarius: January 20–February 18
You are extremely inspired this month because Mars is in Gemini. The first half of the month will be extremely fruitful for your love, work, and social lives. Your acquaintances will listen to your ideas with affection and warmth. Take advantage of this time to push ideas that you have put on the back burner for some time. However, the second half of the month you will be a bit overconfident about this. Your desires will be overflowing and your once rational and brilliant ideas may become overbearing and unreliable. Steady your head and see some art that will put you back in touch with who you are: See Oklahoma! Its stripped-down and relevant twist will make you think critically about the world around you. We suggest either seeing this show alone or with someone you know very well.
Pisces: February 19–March 20
This will be a topsy-turvy month for you, Pisces. Because Venus is in Aries until the 14th, the world will be a bit more tumultuous around you than you’re comfortable with. You can take advantage of this time to have exciting and enriching talks with loved ones, as long as you keep your cool. You’ll feel much more secure in the second half of the month, however, when Venus enters Taurus. This will bring you financial, romantic, and emotional stability and fulfillment. Beware of 20th of May, since the sun and Mercury are both in Gemini. This could knock you off of your routine. May 20 will make the world move too quickly: Deadlines may be unmanageable, you may find yourself in unfamiliar circumstances, and the day may fly by in a way that is extremely unhelpful. As long as you’re aware of it and ahead of the game, you should make it out unscathed. Why not lean into the inevitable chaos with our good friend Beetlejuice? Experience something unfamiliar and learn more about yourself.
