May starts off with the first solar eclipse of 2022 which means you should expect huge life-changing events to occur sometime at the beginning of the month. It is also a time to get serious with your relationships, as this month is filled with interactions (whether you like it or not) and equally as ripe with misunderstandings. Do not be careless with how you express yourself, as the wrong signs might unintentionally tick off a person that is close to you. This can be further prevented if you focus on the things that are truly important to you, rather than trying to impress every person that you meet.
It’s once again time to read the subtle messages of the stars and find out what’s in store for you in the very near future with this month’s 2022 horoscope and lucky colors. Our resident astrologist has prepared a short but insightful interpretation of the arrangement of the cosmos for each of the signs along with a piece of advice or two they can use to guide their actions going forward.

Lucky Color of This Month
This month marks a significant change in your life and what better color suited for that transition than the color orange. Change is a scary thought for many, so it is important to remember that life is all about equal exchanges. It may be good or bad, but what truly matters is how we react to it. We need to learn that at the end of the day, our fates rely on the decisions we make, and no outside force can ever change that.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Your patience and tolerance will come in handy as you ride the wave of change this month. There will be many times when needless drama will try to creep its way into your life, especially from people who allow their emotions to dominate their decision-making. The best way to avoid getting caught up in these pointless squabbles is to maintain a neutral stance and know when it’s best to just walk away. Brown is a color often associated with resilience, so it is the perfect color for you this month and also a neutral color for all skin tone.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
A big change is nothing to be worried about if you are a Gemini. You’re already used to the turning of the tides, and you’re probably the first to ride the waves. Just remember that not every change is for the better, so remain skeptical with each decision so you don’t end up getting washed away. Your intuition will guide you towards the ideal outcome, and the support of those you love will be handy in weighing your choices. A fiery crimson red is your color of the month, to symbolize your strong will in the face of change. Start embracing the change with the best classic red nail kit you can find.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You might get overwhelmed with the change coming to your life, whether it will be for the better or not, no one can truly say. What is important to remember is that there is no shame in expressing your raw emotions even if it makes you come across as being overly dramatic. There is great bravery in being open with your true feelings. Just remember when to hit the brakes. Purple is a regal color, but it is also a mark of courage. Wear it with great pride and tell the world you are not ashamed to show your true colors.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
Take extra measures to maintain good relationships because the big change this month may come from an external source. Prove to them that you are worthy of their trust and adoration, even if you have to show them your vulnerable side. It is far more important to retain your connections than to hunker down alone in your safe space. Life will pass by much quicker than you can imagine, and it will be far worse to reminisce about the people you lost than the wealth and privilege you’ve kept. White is a return to zero, a cleansing of sorts. Do not be afraid of having to build yourself up from the beginning for a better cause.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
You may face a huge setback from your usual plans, whether that be on your lifestyle or a major project you are working on. So long as you don’t let the frustrations get to you, getting back up will be no problem. The good news is that although you may face difficulties with your professional life, your private one will be quite the experience this month. Prepare to get even more intimate with your partner, especially in bed. Love and peace of mind is what you will benefit from the most this month, so pink will be the color of the month for you. Get experimental with your astrology nail designs and impress that special someone with an inviting look.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
The stars are in your favor when it comes to your relationships, so it’s the best time to make some moves! Take your relationship with your partner to the next step, fix a problem that has been plaguing your relationship, or confess your love to that special someone. Whichever one of these applies to you, the best advice would be to not hold anything back and show how truly committed you are to your loved one. Yellow is your lucky color for this month as it is a color that radiates positivity and good vibes. Try out a dip starter kit with an imperial yellow pigment to match the energy you want to be surrounded with.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
This is a very important month for you Scorpio, so it’s best to look the part. Paths converging will push you to make hard decisions, the consequences of which could ripple through your personal life and the important people around you. Use the lessons you’ve learned in the past to lead your way in the future because at the very end of the road you might need to face your own inner demons. To accentuate your professionalism, black will be a very helpful color for you this month. It best represents your maturity and willingness to work in an environment dominated by seasoned minds.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
Contrary to what other signs will experience during the retrograde, this month will be particularly mundane for you, Sagittarius. Take this opportunity for some self-reflection and for some intimate one-on-one with your partner. Your friends may not have time to hang out with you, as they will be up against challenges they need to face alone. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t support them whenever they have to take a break though, because cheering people up is still the best thing you have going for you. Gray is a particularly low-profile color that best represents this relaxed time of the year for you.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
A big decision may fall on your shoulders by the end of the month, but thankfully, you have the rest of it to think the matter over. Don’t be in a rush to make a choice, because basing your judgment on limited information could spell your own downfall. Slow down and think carefully, because you will not be the only person that will be affected by the consequences of your choice. It will understandably be difficult for you to not get anxious about it, of course, but if your decision is based on both empathy and intellect, you should have nothing to worry about. A deep cerulean blue can help you attract that energy of tranquility so you can contemplate your choice with a clear and peaceful mind. You can even try out some new sky blue gel nail starter kit if you plan on going monochrome.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
Change is something you have strong feelings about, particularly that which concerns not just yourself, but your own community and the people that are close to you. Your conscience will urge you to act and become part of a movement in search of a brighter tomorrow. Be warned, however, because an advocate with an ambiguous goal is no better than a fool yelling gibberish in the streets. Make sure your objectives are clear and well-researched, backed by facts and not by emotions. No color better symbolizes wisdom, knowledge, and growth than green, so it will be your lucky color for this month. Try out some mint green cosmetics like horoscope nail art to give off that revitalized aura.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
You likely just got through a metamorphic moment in your life and would love to just sit down and finally take your well-deserved rest. We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it seems that this transitional period is still far from over. You will be met with new challenges in your career or private life that will test how far your limits can truly go. Let not your hope falter, because great rewards await you at the end of the tunnel. Use gold as your color of the month and as a reminder of what your efforts will flourish into in the near future. Try it on your nails using our mini gel tip kit!
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Either for profit or self-actualization, you are currently hard at work on a big project that you’ve poured a lot of time and effort into. But the solar eclipse will bring along with it a variable that is completely out of your expectations, and could radically change the course of your work for better or for worse. Take a step back and assess the efforts you’ve taken thus far, and decide whether to let some things go for the success of the entire project or abandon it in favor of something more feasible. Do not fall into the sunk cost fallacy, as no effort is wasted so long as you learn from your mistakes. Silver is the color of success and wealth, two things you will achieve when you finally finish your work. It is also your color of the month.
So what did the stars have to say about you? Are you hopeful for the great things you may encounter in the future, or anxious of the changes that you may not be completely prepared for? Whatever the case, always remember that the universe favors those that take fate into their own hands. Accept the cards you were dealt, and strive for a better tomorrow. We’ll be waiting for you in the next horoscope reading for the year of the tiger.
