Here's your weekly horoscope for May 16-22

We've always been fascinated by what our zodiac signs say about our lives , whether it's which zodiac signs are most compatible , the best sex positions for each sign , or how each sign handles conflict in relationships. That's why Bustle hired New York-based astrologer Mecca Woods of MyLifeCreated.com to give us weekly insights into how astrology affects our lives. This week's topic: Weekly horoscopes for the week of May 16-22.

Three big things are happening this week. The first event occurs when the energetic Sun enters resourceful Gemini, kicking off Gemini season and speeding up the pace of communication, relationships, and everything in between. This event is followed by the Full Moon in Sagittarius on May 21st, which helps launch, finalize or realize anything related to travel, media, education and going beyond what we already know or believe. The goals of this full moon will help us leave our comfort zones to achieve great things. The third and final act of the week is when Mercury (the planet of communication and ruler of Gemini) finally leaves retrograde on May 22nd, giving us the opportunity to apply any insights or lessons learned over the past few weeks as a means go ahead. With Mercury stationing direct, communication and travel should go more smoothly. Read below to see how these events will affect your sign this week.
