YOUR MAY HOROSCOPE
e made it to May, a month that kicks off with five planets—Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto—in retrograde! Yup, all five. While this may slow things down, for sure– especially with Mars retrograde—the truth is, we don’t have to feel delayed (and certainly not in despair). May brings us lots of positive aspects to focus on as well. Early in the month, we have a fabulous Sun trine Jupiter aspect on May 2nd, hello joy. Further, on the 7th the Sun makes another stellar connection, this time to Pluto, instilling the day with exceptional power. Then drum roll please, Jupiter—the planet of good luck and good fortune—goes direct, while making a glorious trine to Venus on the 9th/10th. Fan-freaking-tastic. The sun departs steady, stable Taurus for whimsical Gemini on the 20th spurring our social life. On the 21st, we have the first of two Sagittarius full moons. This one happens at the same degree where Mars is in his retrograde motion, so please give yourself plenty of space this full moon to feel your emotions fully, and express them appropriately. And more good news, two days later on the 22nd, Mercury goes direct.
The last full week of the month brings a bit more clarity and focus. Just in time too: especially because on the 26th we have the final hoorah of the Jupiter-Saturn square that we’ve contended with since August 3, 2015. This square is the third of three challenging meet ups between Jupiter and Saturn and is meant to help us understand our big picture dream, as well as the details (and discipline) required to make it happen. Expect to receive a necessary download at the end of the month related to making your dream come true. Sobering as it may be, it’s essential to integrate this lesson. Doing so will accelerate your potential and velocity.
As we move past the halfway point between the equinox and the solstice, especially as we move through Mars and Mercury retrograde, we come to a time of year where evaluation and integration are essential. Use May to pause and reflect on your progress. Doing so gives you critical insight on how to tackle the second half of the year.
|Happy Birthday sweet Taurus. Luxury awaits you this month, as your ruler Venus tours your sign and makes a couple of exceptional aspects, particularly on the 10th and 13th. Let’s not forget the super friendly new moon, happening on the 6th, is also in Taurus. Use the combined power of Venus, the new moon and your birthday to call your dreams into fruition. On the 10th, the universe provides you with an opportunity to feel abundant with a capital A. On this day, Venus makes a remarkable connection to good luck Jupiter. Then come the 13th power fills your heart with a deep silent knowing of your innate, inherent worth. On this day Venus makes a lovely connection to Pluto, asking you to tap into your senses. You may even want to indulge in a self-care treat, like getting a massage. Challenges this month? Yup, they’re there, especially with Mercury retrograde in your sign. But don’t worry. All of this is just about learning to use your voice! Tap into your intuition and speak your truth. It’s time. The full moon in Sagittarius on the 21st, happening in your mysterious 8th house of joint resources, sex, and rebirth, suggests a resurrection is upon you.|
|Is money on your mind? The grounding Taurus new moon on the 6th happens in your 8th house of money of others, making this a superb time to set firm intentions for your financial dreams. However, with Mercury retrograde in this exact part of your chart too, you may feel blurry when it comes to accounting. If so, take a deep breath and trust. Meanwhile, the sun (until the 20th) and Venus are also in this same financial part of your chart (the 8th house of shared resources), amplifying the topic of shared resources, commissions, lending and borrowing! Use the retrograde opportunity to feel into your finances and see if you intuitively get any downloads on how you want to build your net worth. As the month moves on, the full moon in Sagittarius asks you to dive deep into the resources of your mind. This full moon happens at the exact same degree in the sky that Mars is at—so expect to feel fire-fueled passion. Give yourself some space then to journal and discharge your emotions. You may be surprised by the insight you uncover. Doing so will set you up correctly to move forward with confidence when Mercury goes direct the very next day.|
|The month kicks off with Venus, the planet of love on the cusp of the third and fourth house of your solar chart. With Venus here you experience an intense bolt of love to your entire system. Awesome. Following this, the new moon on the 6th happens in your fourth house of home and family. This new moon opens you up to new possibilities to support the foundation of your career. Then, Jupiter (touring your house of money from others) goes direct on the 9th, right before making a promising connection to Venus—at that point in your 4th house too, offering you the potential to up-level with elegance. Pay attention to potential money coming in, as it has the possibility to multiply. The Sagittarius full moon on the 21st happening in your 11th house of friendship and manifestation shines a light on the hard work you’ve put in on behalf of your dreams. Use this fire-fueled full moon happening at the same degree in the sky as Mars in retrograde, to evaluate your progress and to discern the changes that still require execution. This may have implications for your social media marketing or any group programs you lead. Allow your deepest desires to surface and then get to work on their behalf. There’s no time like the present to change. Let go of what you know you need to!|
