As May begins, the Sun is your fellow earth sign Taurus until the 20th. Love planet Venus is here too until the 9th.
This is a lovely placing of inner planets for you because Taurus rules all the good things in life, what you create or give birth to. This includes children, romance, creative projects, social events and new opportunities.
There’s a feel-good vibe about planets in this sector of your horoscope. You might be head over heels in love. Or, perhaps you’re besotted with a child.
May’s New Moon in Taurus on the 11th falls in this same sector of your horoscope. Use the New Moon to make a wish and set your intentions around these key areas of your life. New Moons are an ideal date to initiate something new.
Add to this the fact that you have Mars in Cancer and your relationship sector throughout May and other people are going to play an increasingly significant role in your life. Focus on connections and partnership.
Jupiter Enters Pisces
The big news this month is the planet of luck and opportunity Jupiter on the move. On the 14th, Jupiter enters water sign Pisces where it remains until July 28th. Jupiter then returns to Pisces at the end of this year on December 29th.
This is an important shift in the heavens and feels significant for you. Jupiter breathes life and vitality into your communication sector. Pisces represents all forms of communication, talking, gathering and sharing ideas and information, making new friends and learning new skills.
You might go back to school or decide to gain new qualifications. You could embark on a new role as a voice-over artist, a new job as a journalist or a new role as a blogger. While Jupiter’s in Pisces, use your voice to the best of your ability as this could be the start of something big.
This is a compassionate placing for Jupiter and Pisces represents siblings and neighbours in your horoscope, also your local community.
If you’re craving new connections, reach out to other people and ensure you have a good support network around you. Alternatively, you might be the one stepping into a caring or mentoring role.
It’s not all about connections and affairs of the heart this month, because there’s a strong emphasis on the star sign Gemini. Talk planet Mercury is here from the 4th, the planet of relating Venus enters Gemini on the 9th and the Sun completes the trio in Gemini on the 20th.
Gemini rules your work and routine, your lifestyle and your health. This month’s planetary activity suggests that you might be busier than usual. Or, you’re being extra social, either at work or down the gym. Keep things ticking along and pay close attention to your well-being.
Mercury Retrograde/Lunar Eclipse
This is important because of what takes place towards the end of May. The trickiest time falls in the last week of May so notice your energy levels and take good care of yourself before then.
On the 29th, communication planet Mercury turns retrograde in Gemini and will remain on go slow until June 22nd. This is often a time when you have to slow down, ready or not. Ensure you get all important paperwork and correspondence up-to-date before the end of May.
In addition, on the 26th, there’s a Full Moon or Lunar Eclipse which cuts across the Gemini/Sagittarius axis of the zodiac. Eclipses are game-changers and often indicate a turning point, whether a job or contract comes to an end or you’ve run out of steam.
This eclipse cycle began in June 2020 and completes in December 2021. You may already know what it’s about for you, especially if you’ve recently made some radical changes to your diet, lifestyle, health or work situation.
Expect the unexpected at the end of the month and take the pace slow. You might be able to take advantage of something that comes your way out of the blue. Or, you may discover that your work situation has to change for one reason or another.
This could be linked to Saturn’s change of direction on the 23rd. Saturn is your ruling planet and turns retrograde in Aquarius and your personal money sector. It might be time to rein in your spending or streamline your finances.
Be super flexible this month and focus on your everyday routine and how your work fits in around this. This is about your lifestyle and health as well as your job, so ensure you pay equal attention to your mind, body and soul.
