There is one proviso, however, and this is the fact that communication planet Mercury turns retrograde on the 10th, the day before Jupiter enters Aries. Mercury remains on go slow until June 3rd. Therefore, you may find that things don’t fall into your lap straightaway and it’s important to see this month’s astrology as the planning phase.

Also this month, there’s the second of two eclipses taking place cutting across the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac. There was a Solar or New Moon eclipse on April 30th and this month, there’s a Lunar or Full Moon eclipse on the 16th. Eclipses are powerful for you because they involve the relationship between the Sun, Moon & Earth. And, the Moon is your ruler in astrology.
These two eclipses are part of the eclipse cycle that began in November 2021 and completes in October 2023. This eclipse cycle highlights the social axis of your horoscope. It’s about your friends and group activities, your involvement with society, politics, community or humanitarian goals.
Also, it’s about the things you give birth to, i.e. your creative urges. This includes your children, lovers, creative projects, your skills, talents and gifts. This eclipse is highlighting how you express yourself out in the world. These areas of your life may be shifting or changing as new lessons or learnings emerge.
Full Moons are notoriously emotional and an eclipsed Full Moon can be a time of drama when unexpected events kick in. It’s wise not to act on the date of the eclipse but wait and see what occurs. Once the shadow lifts, a new landscape can be revealed. Then, you can decide where you need to step in or take action.
However, be patient as Mercury is also hidden until early June. The New Moon in Gemini on the 30th could be a significant turning point. Read between the lines and use the New Moon energy to initiate an important conversation. Then, you can start to push things through ready for Mercury turning direct on June 3rd.
Note that Mercury moves back into Taurus on the 23rd and your friendship sector. If there’s a dispute or issue around a friend or group activity, take your time. You’ll be more effective in getting to the bottom of things if you wait until the end of the month.
