May 8 Weekly Astrology: Stepping into the new (with sun signs)

Here is your horoscope for the week of Monday, May 8 to Sunday, May 14.

Watch until the end to see the horoscope for each sun sign.

This week is it! Time to finally step into the new you. For the past while, we've been teetering on the edge of two worlds — half in one world and half in another. This week, you finally step into the world and life you want, with both feet on the ground.

The nodes switch signs this week into Leo and Aquarius, bringing us new energy and new passion to pursue (and truly live!) the things that really make us happy — and to show the world who we really are!

No more hiding in the shadows, and no more feeling reserved, uncertain or critical about your life's path. That is over with. We're entering a new phase that resonates more truly with our heart and our identity. We must step into it.

But you will not be asked to do it alone. You will have help as you enter this new phase. The north node forms a beautiful fire trine with Saturn in Sagittarius and Mercury and Uranus in Aries on Wednesday. This means, unexpected events may occur out of the blue to connect you with your true life's journey and give you a push in the right direction, which may also require some serious commitments (and courage!) on your part too.

Enjoy it. It's all very exciting ... but the new land we are exploring is still very untested and unexplored. Before we can finally allow ourselves to embrace this, we will first need to let go of some old emotional attachments. That's where the full moon in Scorpio this week comes into play.

The full moon is asking us to let go of what we thought we wanted our life to be or who we thought we were to step into something that more truly resonates with us. It may also require us to readjust some of our deep relationships or resources we share with others in order to embrace this new life.

It may feel scary at first — Scorpio can do that! But you have to learn to overcome the fear and to make the changes you need to make in order to move wholeheartedly in this new direction.

Know that this new direction will not be without it's hiccups at first, either. We've still got some challenging alignments coming up in the next two weeks, like Mars opposite Saturn and Venus opposite Jupiter, which will bring big choices to you about your commitments and your relationships and what you truly value. But it will be a major push that we have been waiting for in the right direction.

Things won't fully get up to speed until the last few days of the month — but then the sky really opens up! Hang in there. Life is about to get good.
