It’s time to validate your own emotions, rather than waiting on or seeking out others to do this for you. Take a break from social media, dating apps, and even group settings where you’re simply showing up to be seen. If you’re unable to make yourself feel safe, loved, and supported when no one else is around, you’ll need to shift your focus here this month. Knowing how to love yourself isn’t something you can fake; try to create a truly deep and intimate bond with yourself and watch the way your life begins to flourish. Bringing dedication to a ritual, hobby, community, or job will help you find contentment this month. Don’t give up, dear Virgo! It’s time you learn to dance in the rain rather than waiting for each rainstorm to pass.
Nine of Swords: My sweet Virgos, what have we got here? The Nine of Swords indicates a period of stress, sleepless nights, and overwhelming thoughts. If life seems to have a grip on you right now, let yourself rest and receive in the month of May. Instead of putting on a front to everyone around you as if you’ve got it all together, can you confide in those closest to you when you really feel like falling apart? May will be all about embracing vulnerability and allowing yourself to feel heavy emotions without identifying with them. You’re not sad; you’re feeling sadness. Your life is not falling apart; it’s reconfiguring so it can be put back together better than before. Whether it’s your finances, your love life, your relationship to your friends and family, or your living situation that has you in a tizzy, expect new information that’s going to change your life in May. Opportunities are going to be coming out of the woodwork, and for some of you, these are seeds of intention that you planted quite some time ago.
Spirit is constantly going to test your patience until you master the art of being patient. If your worth and value is tied to external things working (or not working), then they will continuously be taken away from you in order to prove the point: You are safe, you have always made it through each adversity you’ve faced, and you are not going to crumble. Your worth resides in your own view of self. No matter how much money you make, what job title you have, whether you’re single or in a relationship, or how many likes you get on your Instagram post…you are STILL worthy. May will be all about reminding yourself: “I am worthy, I am deserving, I am loved.”
Ace of Cups: The month of April is going to feel as though you have a new lease on life, Virgo. I see new job opportunities, new relationships, and new hobbies or interests arriving to you effortlessly. It feels as if there was a period of time recently dedicated to grieving. This could have been the loss of a loved one, a relationship, or your sense of place in the world. Rest assured that the time ahead is going to lead you to wide-open doors and a sense of purity around your life and close connections. Less struggle will give you more time to think, breathe, and simply be.
Use this month to explore the people, places, and experiences that are calling out to you. Don’t hold yourself back. It’s time to express your feelings from a place of love and authenticity with those closest to you. I see any issues within the family sector clearing up this month; this will most likely lead to a new chapter in the way you view family and home life, letting you all start anew. Remember, your emotions are simply an indicator of something being aligned, or a signal to make changes. Can you honor your anger and sadness with the same respect that you do with your happiness and joy? They all serve a purpose, and this month will remind you that you are simply here to observe your feelings, rather than getting lost within them.
The Devil: When you’re buried deep in righteousness, it can be hard to see your own missteps. The universe has been trying to gently nudge you in the direction of change, but if you don’t heed the warning soon, these nudges could turn into full-blown shoves. You have to let go of the expectations that have been fed to you. “Do more, be more, share more, spend more”—let it all blow away in the wind. Separate yourself from what the world tells you to desire and ask yourself, honestly, “What do you want?”
