Rue Horoscopes: May


We may not be experts in astrology or the moon’s position, but we do know style alignment. And in forecasting the next month, here’s what’s in store for you.

Big changes are on the horizon. Translation? Your shoe collection is about to get a major overhaul. Toss those worn-in sandals from last year (along with the excuses) and restock with one pair for every spring trend – bold stripes and ankle straps included.

Quit being apprehensive about rocking a cutout one-piece at the beach this season and take the plunge. Not only will you set the crazy-stylish tone among your own posse, you’ll take the entire ocean by storm.

The quickest way to make some changes? Step out of that comfort-zone hibernation and into a refreshingly new experience (three-day-long spa retreats totally count).

Don’t be thrown by recent drama. Instead, surround yourself with things that make you incandescently happy, like brand new strappy wedges, those first few drinks on a patio, and froyo. Lots of froyo.

If there’s one thing you can count on for spring, it’s (what feels like) a completely new wardrobe. And with certainty comes the ability to plan. Puerto Rico, here you come – umbrella-clad cocktails are calling.

There’s a secret behind that silver lining everyone’s been talking about (girl-crush Jennifer Lawrence not included). It comes in the form of metallic, buttery leather accessories. Feeling more positive yet?

There’s nothing better than working your tail off toward a goal. Like that flattering, made-for-you maxi dress that you’ve quite literally been drooling over since February. Now go get your reward.

Remember what energy used to feel like? Let’s get back to that. Start with some clean eating (adios, whoopie pies). Second, do something – walk, play kickball, practice handstands, whatever. Lastly, update your bedroom. Crisp sheets and a new mirror go a long way.

Harness the inspiration that’s currently taking over, well, everything, and put it to good use. In the wardrobe: play with accessories – belts and pumps and headpieces, oh my. In the office: share your ideas and make some serious moves.

What you’re feeling right now is anxiety (it happens to the best of us), but here’s how to show that nervous energy who’s boss. Clean your desk. Reorganize the apartment. And most importantly, indulge in that cropped blazer you can wear ten different ways. Resistance is futile.

If you’re looking for a personal way to make someone feel better that never goes out of style, try handwritten notes. Yes, they are sent via snail mail and require some extra thought, but hey, that smile is totally worth it.

Forget stress – new hobbies are way more fun. Take running, for example. Not only do you get to stock up on crazy-adorable athletic gear (they even have flattering skirts out there), you get the toned bod to go with it. New favorite activity: found.
