It’s no secret there are significant turning points ahead, but there are energies we have yet to unravel and truly understand. Your May 15 weekly horoscope is supercharged with transformative shifts, some of which you’ve already contemplated behind the scenes. This is very fitting when considering the Taurus-Scorpio eclipse activations given that these two fixed signs represent what we value and possess, both in the physical and spiritual dimensions.
Truth be told, there’s no sweeping things under the rug this week. The moon will already be transiting through Scorpio on May 15, gearing us up for this month’s highly anticipated lunar eclipse on May 16, which is sitting a couple of degrees away from the South Node. In astrology, the South Node is symbolic of what we’re being called to release, purge, and break free from in our current reality. This is one of the many reasons why the upcoming eclipse is so powerful; in addition to Scorpio’s alchemizing and transformative energy, eclipses usher in life-altering events. That’s only magnified during a total lunar eclipse, which has everything to do with completion.
Despite the undeniable intensity of it all, it’s important to remember that full moons are a call for balance, so it’s up to us to simultaneously ground our energy. Does your current environment allow you to live up to your fullest potential? What do you need to cultivate in your physical surroundings for your soul to bloom and flourish? Chances are, you’re already aware of what needs to change — if not, that’s what’s being brought to your attention during this week’s lunar eclipse. In harmony with elusive Neptune and Scorpio’s modern ruler, Pluto, more than you realize is already being catalyzed behind the scenes. Don’t doubt your inner knowing.
If you’re wondering what this week has in store for you, read on for your weekly horoscope for May 15 through May 21, according to your zodiac sign and your rising sign.

Aries (March 21-April 19) Weekly Horoscope For May 15, 2022
Themes of “give and take” and “me vs. we” are incredibly prominent for you during this time, Aries. For instance, your weekly horoscope for the week of May 15 begins with pleasure-seeking Venus conjunct the wounded healer, Chiron, in your sign, which isn’t always the easiest of energies to endure. Whether it’s regarding your sense of self or sense of self-worth, this combination could trigger feelings of insecurity and sadness. However, instead of dwelling on past wounds or something you can’t fix, take heart that this celestial synergy can be incredibly healing if harnessed correctly. Your vulnerability, for example, isn’t something to be ashamed of. On the contrary, where you’ve been and where you’re going are part of your soul journey.
As for this week’s lunar eclipse, you can start by reflecting on where you feel a lack of security, whether personally or professionally. Are your mind, body, and soul fully invested in this commitment? The way you work with others and the people you trust are being brought to the forefront. Something else to keep in mind this week is that your planetary ruler, Mars, will be joining forces with Neptune in Pisces on May 17. Be discerning with your actions and desires; indulge in the fantasy, but don’t lose sight of the bigger picture.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) Weekly Horoscope For May 15, 2022
You’re healing from the inside out, Taurus. On May 15, your celestial ruler, Venus, will meet with the wounded healer, Chiron, in Aries, in your 12th house of closure, dreams, and all things behind the scenes. This presents you with an opportunity to go inward and make peace with your past. Something is being brought to your attention, namely regarding your agreements, contracts, and significant others, and this week’s lunar eclipse in Scorpio has a lot to do with it. Shaking up your seventh house of marriage, compromise, and other people, the cosmos is urging you to confront either an outdated belief system surrounding partnership or, for some of you, a connection that’s no longer serving you.
Do keep in mind, Mercury is retrograde in Gemini in your stability-seeking second house of comfort, finances, and value systems — which means you’re also being called to reflect, revisit, and re-assess themes surrounding everything from your money-making abilities to your sense of self-worth. As always, it’s all connected, and happening in divine timing. On May 17, Mars will collide with elusive Neptune in Pisces, adorning your 11th house of community, future visions, and sense of belonging in the world with a dreamy hue that can be equally as inspiring as it is boundless, so be sure to ground your energy. Uncertainties surrounding the status quo and societal expectations are also likely, but it’s up to you to take your power back.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) Weekly Horoscope For May 15, 2022
If you’re feeling uninspired or uncertain about next steps, don’t be discouraged, Gemini. The week of May 15 will begin with the sun squaring Saturn, which could highlight challenges and/or restrictions currently testing your faith. However, instead of applying more pressure on yourself, it’s important for you to find a way to alchemize this energy into acts of mindfulness so you can make each day a little brighter. Also, Venus will conjunct Chiron in Aries via your 11th house of community, so if you’re feeling insecure about a particular friend group you’ve outgrown or a future goal you’ve been working towards, don’t be afraid to express your vulnerability. Above all, you are human.
The following day, a total lunar eclipse in Scorpio will touch down on your responsible sixth house of health, daily rituals, work routines, and acts of service, so if you’ve been overextending yourself or not cultivating your productivity levels, this along with its square to Saturn will require you to get a practical plan in place. This could have something to do with your professional life, especially since Mars will conjunct Neptune in Pisces via your 10th house of career and authority on May 17. Having said that, the combination of these two planets could trigger feelings of confusion, restlessness, and more uncertainty. No need to rush things. Your celestial ruler, Mercury, is retrograde, anyway.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) Weekly Horoscope For May 15, 2022
If things aren’t going as planned at work or with a prominent authority figure, take a step back for the time being, Cancer. Overthinking and dwelling on what you can’t control isn’t productive. When considering Venus’s conjunction with the wounded healer, Chiron, on May 15, the most important thing to remember is that you are whole all by yourself. All of your hard work could never go to waste, so don’t repress your feelings of vulnerability. The sun will also be at odds with Saturn, triggering feelings of restriction regarding new opportunities vs. your loyalty to prior commitments.
The following day, a total lunar eclipse in Scorpio will shake up your expressive fifth house of love, passion, pleasure, and self-expression, highlighting everything from the dark side of your love language to how your authenticity has transformed. Are your current obligations — personal or professional — burdening you or stifling your creativity? Ironically, Mars will conjunct Neptune the following day, adorning your ninth house of entrepreneurship, belief systems, and personal philosophy with fantasy, confusion, and general elusiveness. Things aren’t as they seem, so don’t lose sight of your goals. When Mercury retrograde meets with lucky Jupiter on May 19, it could bring a past opportunity back around for review.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Weekly Horoscope For May 15, 2022
If you’re committed to something, then you stand firm no matter what, Leo. The week of May 15 kicks off with your celestial ruler, the sun, going head to head with taskmaster Saturn, which isn’t necessarily peachy. With the sun energizing your bossy 10th house of notoriety and Saturn setting boundaries in your relationship sector, you’re more likely to experience friction with a superior at work or a significant other. Either way, Venus’s conjunction with the wounded healer, Chiron, will simultaneously challenge you to reflect on your belief systems and general outlook around your sense of authority. Is something holding you back from venturing into the unknown?
The following day, a total lunar eclipse in Scorpio will ignite your domestic fourth house of home, family, and innermost feelings, highlighting private matters as well as the way you’ve been nurturing your personal space. If emotions start to resurface unexpectedly, don’t disregard them; this is an opportunity for you to reconnect with your shadow self. More importantly, however, this also serves as a reminder to cultivate balance between your emotional and physical body. Mars conjuncts Neptune in Pisces on May 17, which can be equally alluring as it is deceptive, so be discerning with your commitments. Set boundaries if needed.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Weekly Horoscope For May 15, 2022
Having high expectations doesn’t usually end well because nothing is ever guaranteed, Virgo. Especially when considering this week’s challenging square between the sun in your expansive ninth house of self-discovery and taskmaster Saturn via your sixth house of tedious routines, attaching yourself to a specific outcome isn’t suggested. Moreover, Venus will conjunct the wounded healer, Chiron, in your eighth house of mergers and soulmate connections — which could, in turn, trigger feelings of utter despair and insecurity, notably when it comes to matters of intimacy and shared resources. However, instead of repressing your emotions and feelings of vulnerability, the cosmos is urging you to prioritize your healing.
The following day, a total lunar eclipse in Scorpio will activate your familiar third house of communication, thought process, and immediate surroundings, all the while harmonizing with Mars, Pluto, and Neptune in the process. Which part of yourself are you denying for the sake of a partnership? Have you been sacrificing your truth due to fear? Your communication style is most certainly being tested right now. Mars will conjunct boundless Neptune in Pisces on May 17, adding an elusive and mystifying hue to your contractual agreements as well as your connection to a significant other. In addition to considering the effects of Mercury retrograde, it’s important to protect your energy and steer away from commitments that feel deceptive or manipulative.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Weekly Horoscope For May 15, 2022
Are your commitments getting in the way of your personal desires, Libra? On May 15, amidst the sun’s journey through Taurus (and your eighth house of shared resources and intimate unions), it will face off with Saturn (in your fifth house of love, passion, and self-expression), which could, in turn, create tension around your commitments vs. what you really, truly want. Keep in mind, Venus will also join forces with the wounded healer, Chiron, in your relationship sector, so if you’re feeling insecure or betrayed by a significant other, know that this, too, shall pass. This could have something to do with your autonomy or individual freedom; don’t be afraid to assert yourself if needed.
A total lunar eclipse in Scorpio will touch down on your stability-seeking second house of comfort, finances, and value systems, highlighting the darker side of your investments as well as everything that’s beneath the surface when it comes to your sense of security. Your health rituals, daily duties, and general well-being will also come up for review this week as go-getter Mars will join forces with Neptune in Pisces via your sixth house of day-to-day life on May 17. Have you been overextending yourself and neglecting your desires? Be discerning with your time-management skills, and be sure to set the necessary boundaries.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Weekly Horoscope For May 15, 2022
You’re a main character this week, Scorpio. For instance, the week of May 15 could begin with a battle of wills, as the sun (in your committed seventh house of agreements, compromise, and significant others) faces off with taskmaster Saturn (in your emotionally driven fourth house of home, family matters, and innermost feelings). Whether it’s regarding family or a love interest you reside with, steer away from power struggles and unnecessary stubbornness. Ironically, with Venus conjunct the wounded healer, Chiron (in your responsible sixth house of daily rituals), you could start to recognize patterns in your daily life that aren’t serving you, especially those that influence your self-esteem and sense of security.
This week’s total lunar eclipse in your sign will highlight physical identity and any connections that may have skewed your perception of yourself. If something’s no longer resonating, this is an opportunity for you to say goodbye to those energies that don’t complement your higher self. When your traditional ruler, Mars, meets with Neptune in Pisces on May 17, it will adorn your romantic fifth house of love, passion, pleasure, and self-expression with fantasy and general elusiveness. Despite the magic and spirituality of this transit, it’s important to protect your heart and ground your energy.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Weekly Horoscope For May 15, 2022
Sagittarius, there’s nothing wrong with being opinionated as long as you’re willing to hear someone out. On May 15, the sun will face off with Saturn, creating feelings of restriction or limitation regarding your first impression vs. the actual facts. This could also have something to do with your immediate environment and whether it allows you to be productive and successful in your day-to-day life. Keep in mind, with Venus conjunct the wounded healer, Chiron (in your romantic fifth house of love, passion, pleasure, and self-expression), you may be more likely to be extra hard on yourself or lack confidence when it comes to your heart’s desires.
This week’s highly anticipated lunar eclipse in Scorpio will shake up your 12th house of closure, dreams, and privacy, which means something that’s been hidden from your conscious mind will likely surface. Maybe it’s a secret you prefer to keep to yourself or a past burden living in the depths of your psyche. The cosmos is advising you to nurture your day-to-day duties and health routine either way. In fact, this has everything to do with your cultivating a healthy balance between the practical and the spiritual side of things. With this in mind, go-getter Mars will conjunct Neptune in Pisces on May 17, encouraging you to honor your personal space and protect your energy.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Weekly Horoscope For May 15, 2022
Whether it’s personally or professionally, it looks like you’re ready to solidify something, Capricorn. So, what’s stopping you from doing so? Your weekly horoscope for the week of May 15 kicks off with the sun energizing your fifth house of love, passion, and pleasure, all the while squaring off with your taskmaster ruler, Saturn, in your stability-seeking second house of value systems. This combination of energies is likely to trigger feelings of restriction or limitation. Venus will also conjunct the wounded healer, Chiron (in your fourth house of home, family matters, and innermost feelings), which means past energies — whether a fear, wound, or resentment — are likely to come back around for a second look. Your healing starts now.
Speaking of which, there will be a total lunar eclipse in Scorpio on May 16, bringing intense transformation to your 11th house of associations, community, and individual freedom. Whether you’re itching to break free of a professional atmosphere or a group of friends you’ve outgrown, one thing’s for sure: it’s time to release and start again. On May 17, Mars will conjunct Neptune in Pisces (in your third house of communication, thought process, and immediate surroundings), which means your words and exchanges are not only as alluring as ever, but also easily misconstrued. This along with the effects of Mercury retrograde are enough reason for you to think twice before committing or sending that text.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Weekly Horoscope For May 15, 2022
Keeping an open mind is easier said than done this week, Aquarius. Not to worry; worst-case scenario, you’ll keep to yourself. For instance, on May 15, the sun will square Saturn in your sign, all while energizing your emotionally driven fourth house of home, family, and innermost feelings. Whether with a sibling or parental figure, you’re more likely to experience feelings of restriction or limitation at this time. Maybe you’re looking to expand your living space or relocate entirely. Keep in mind, Venus will make a conjunction with the wounded healer, Chiron, (in your third house of immediate surroundings, peers, and siblings), which means you could be confronted with a past issue or resentment. Use this as an opportunity to heal and move forward.
On another note, the total lunar eclipse in Scorpio on May 16 will ignite your 10th house of career, authority, and reputation in the world, highlighting everything from the shadow side of your professional endeavors to your sense of authority. All in all, your inner foundation is in the midst of a significant transformation, and this is reflecting onto external circumstances. On May 17, Mars will conjunct Neptune in Pisces; this mystical synergy could be as enlightening as it is confusing, so be sure to stay grounded when it comes to your finances and investments. On a brighter note, this is an excellent time to tap into your unique gifts and money-making abilities.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Weekly Horoscope For May 15, 2022
You’re doing everything in your power to hold onto the stability you have, but there’s no escaping the spiritual transformation taking place behind the scenes, Pisces. For instance, the week of May 15 begins with the sun energizing your communication sector, all the while facing off with taskmaster Saturn in the process. You could be fixated on the impression you have of something or someone — yet Saturn is giving you no choice but to soul search and confront past consequences, facts, or feelings you’ve likely swept under the rug. This doesn’t need to be negative, but you’re still being called to do the inner work. Speaking of which, Venus will also conjunct the wounded healer, Chiron (via your stability-seeking second house of comfort, finances, and value systems). If you’re feeling insecure or uncertain about next steps, take a moment to reflect on how far you’ve come as well as everything you’ve accomplished thus far.
Fasten your seat belts. The following day, a total lunar eclipse in Scorpio will ignite your exotic ninth house of adventure, expansion, and belief systems, highlighting the shadow side of your world views and personal philosophies. Is fear holding you back from taking a leap of faith? Then assertive Mars will conjunct enchanting Neptune in your sign on May 17, which can be quite the paradox, especially for those of you looking to make a commitment. Make sure you’re communicating clearly and steer away from deceptive situations; illusions are very likely under this perplexing transit.
