We’re constantly fascinated by what our zodiac sign says about our lives, whether it's which signs are most compatible, the best sex positions for each sign, or how each sign handles conflict in relationships. That's why Bustle has enlisted Mecca Woods, a New York City-based Astrologer of MyLifeCreated.com to tell us all about how astrology is affecting our lives each week. This week's topic: your weekly horoscope for the week of May 2-8.
The overall theme of this week is growth and stability. We're taking the ideas, inspiration, and passion from last month and planting the seeds this week to implement them and watch them grow. While having five planets still in retrograde (Mercury, Mars, Saturn, Jupiter, and Pluto) mean that we won't be seeing or experiencing any overnight successes, the first week of May is still a great time to materialize the things we've set our sights on. Read below to find out what this means for your sign.
Remember to tune into Bustle's weekly horoscopes video live on Facebook each Monday for a rundown of your weekly horoscope.
In the New York City area? Join Mecca at SHAG Brooklyn on May 8, for a workshop on engaging astrology, sex-positivity, and sensuality for feminine well-being.
