Your May Health Horoscope
Here at Keep A Breast, we believe that everything is connected and that our overall health and wellness is influenced by everything around us.

May 2019 Horoscopes
We can all breathe a collective sigh of relief this May, thanks to a relatively calm astrological forecast. This year has been a wild ride so far, but with Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto all retrograde, the pace will be slowing down substantially and work can go finally go on the back burner for a moment. Focus on your well-being and physical health during the New Moon on May 4th, and enjoy the benefits of truthful, grounded communication as Mercury enters Taurus on May 6th. Use the Full Moon in Scorpio on May 18th to release aspects of your lifestyle and harmful habits that you’ve outgrown.
The month of May gives you the time and space to focus on your emotional needs, dear Aries. Your emotions also affect your physical health, so pay attention to how your feelings may be influencing your body. Be mindful of how your breath and posture are reflecting your current emotional state, and consider adding a short yoga practice into your daily routine to help regulate your physical state.
It’s your birthday month, dear Taurus, so treat yourself! With Venus well aspected to your sign, changing up your look gets the green light this May. Try a new hairstyle, treat yourself to that outfit you’ve been eyeing, or splurge on a facial. Feeling your best improves self-esteem, which can boost your overall health.
Get out and enjoy the fine spring weather, dear Gemini! Let nature inspire your creativity, relationships, and even your workout routine. Working out in nature is more challenging due to changes in terrain and wind resistance. And the best part? It’s also free!
This is the perfect month to connect with your personal power, dear Cancer! Consider signing up for kickboxing, jiu-jitsu or whatever martial art strikes your fancy. You’ll benefit from both the mental and physical benefits, as well as improved self-confidence, fitness levels, and focus.
Taurus season may feel a little slow for you this month, dear Leo, making it the perfect time to practice mindfulness. One of the most important aspects of mindfulness involves embracing your imperfections. This can be difficult for you Leo, but it’s important to acknowledge that this is a practice, not a performance.
The universe has been pushing you out of your comfort zone lately, dear Virgo, so embrace the adventure. Try picking up a new cookbook and let some exciting new cuisine into your life! Why not experiment with fermentation? Fermented foods are packed with beneficial probiotics, which benefit both gut health and immunity.
You may be feeling a little frisky this month, Libra, so embrace your sexy side! Sex can help lower your blood pressure, boost your immune system, and increase your levels of prolactin which helps you fall asleep quickly. If you’re currently single, then lift your self-esteem by wearing something that makes you feel beautiful. You never know who may notice!
Are you sticking with your fitness goals, Scorpio? This month you’ll need to get back on track, but you don’t have to do it alone. Consider hiring a fitness coach, trainer or even try teaming up with a friend to help you stay dedicated to your health goals.
This month love will be emphasized for you, dear Sagittarius, but you may need an energetic boost to get you out of the house and into the social sphere. Regular exercise, avoiding alcohol and eating a diet rich in whole, unprocessed foods will increase your vitality and keep you looking and feeling your best!
Sometimes the answer is to take time off, dear Capricorn. While this isn’t your usual prerogative, the universe is urging you to embrace some serious rest and relaxation. Since Saturn and Pluto are both retrograde in your sign, you’ll need to take time out to consider your next move. Meditation, mountain retreats or simply a walk in nature will help calm your frazzled nerves and clear your mind.
Consider adding some new supplements to your diet this month, Aquarius. Your health might need some extra attention, and if you’ve been feeling a bit sluggish, try adding some spirulina to your morning smoothly. This incredible Cyanobacteria is full of B vitamins and antioxidants and was even studied by NASA as a health supplement for astronauts.
You’ll be ready to learn this month, dear Pisces, so be sure to feed your mind! Devour any books that have been sitting on your shelf, or take a class that pushes your creativity. You can enhance your mind even further this May with a supplement of Gotu Kola, an adaptogenic brain boosting herb that increases circulation and helps mitigate stress.
