Love Notes: Week May 19-26, 2023

Brief love reading for each of the signs. Be sure to look at your Sun, Moon, and Rising signs for an expanded perspective. Read your May Astro-Tarotscope here.

Underlying Theme for All the Signs: This week asks that you take a risk to forge a new path with optimism. Perhaps you’re lacking experience, facing upsetting circumstances you weren’t prepared for, or entering new territory with childlike wonder. In some cases, the week may actually herald an announcement of a pregnancy, the birth of a child, or travel plans. For most, it means tapping into the protective shell of your own innocence to make yourself emotionally available despite the discomfort. Events force you to go deep within to acknowledge the lack of commitment to yourself, and subsequently to others, based on the past, the pain of rejection, or the abuse that provoked you to close off or shut down. Don’t fool yourself again–discernment is required regarding who should be kept at bay and who should be allowed into your intimate space. However, trust that there are those who offer a safe place for you to be vulnerable because cauterizing your emotions only makes you cold, numb, and exhausted.
