May Curiosities!!

By Miriam Sossin

HOROSCOPES: As we enter Gemini season at a time of uncertainty, it can be overwhelming to look at the empty summer and try to make something of it. While there are a lot of things we can’t do this summer, let’s focus on what we can!

BIRTHDAY: If you were born on May 21st, happy freaking birthday! Bake yourself a cake, throw yourself a party, and make sure the whole neighbourhood knows today is about YOU (and around 21 million other people)!

GEMINI (may 21-june 20): Take this summer to give yourself a break. It can feel like you have to do more than ever, but learn to enjoy doing nothing. Relax!

CANCER (june 21- july 22): Reach out (virtually) to people you might not usually talk to! Distance is the perfect reason to make new connections in new ways.

LEO (july 23- aug. 22): Whatever you were determined to do or feel this summer, you can. Create events for yourself! You can have fun doing anything with the right people (from a distance). Live your best life!!

VIRGO (aug. 23-sept. 22): Now is the time. Redecorate your room! Build a shirt out of curtains! Take out all the wish lists and dream boards you’ve made and put away, and get. them. done.

LIBRA (sept.23-oct. 22): Don’t be afraid to give up on some things. You won’t do everything and you don’t have to! Choose 2 things that are important to you, that you really really want to complete, and slay them.

SCORPIO (oct. 23-nov. 21): Take control of your situation. Don’t give up on doing things you wanted to do just because you can’t do them the way you wanted! Stay determined and get at it.

SAGITTARIUS (nov. 22-dec. 21): Exploration happens in countless ways. Just because you can’t tour a new city does not mean that you can’t explore your house and yourself! There’s a lot to learn and see right in front of you.

CAPRICORN (dec.22-jan. 19): Get jacked. That’s it. Take the time to put together some workout plans and outfits, and then work. them. out.

AQUARIUS (jan. 20-feb. 18): Forget everything you thought you knew about ‘staying home’. Redefine what it means to be a ‘homebody’ and what can be accomplished and found without leaving your house.

PISCES (feb. 19-mar. 19): Create!!! Lots of great art was created during global crises, add yours to history’s list! Or to the pile on your desk!

ARIES (mar. 20-apr. 18): School may be over, but there will always be things you don’t know. Take this summer to learn a new language, a new dance, to paint with pastels, to garden!!

TAURUS (apr. 19- may 20): So many bad things are happening (and should not be ignored), but focus on the good you can find. Think about the much-needed coffee you got, and not the 35 minute drive to get to the Starbucks drive-through. Perspective changes everything.
