Throughout May, you’re wise to keep a healthy balance between work and play and not let one area of life take over the other completely.
Up until the 20th, your ruler the Sun is in Taurus and your career and vocation sector. This shines a light on your ambitions and where you’re heading in life.
The New Moon in Taurus on the 11th could be a stand-out date in this respect as a New Moon symbolises new beginnings. It’s a great date to launch a project or set off on a new chapter in your life.
Yet, there’s strong emphasis on the star sign Gemini this month, ruling one of the most social sectors of your horoscope. This kicks in on the 4th as talk planet Mercury enters Gemini and is joined by Venus on the 9th.
There’s a social vibe with this combination, whether you’re involved in a group or catching up with your friends. Your ruler the Sun joins the social planets in Gemini on the 20th.
This is where the initiative lies for you throughout May. Who to team up with? Where can you find your tribe? How to make a difference alongside a group of people? It’s a good month to join forces with other people either for a political, social or environmental goal.
There is one other factor to note, however, and that is action planet Mars in Cancer and the most hidden sector of your horoscope throughout May.
This turns your attention inwards. You may find your energy levels are low at times. Or, perhaps you’re dealing with a sensitive or personal issue. To maximise May’s benefits, you’re wise to manage your time well.
Mercury Retrograde/Lunar Eclipse
There’s some tricky astrology towards the end of May. On the 29th, communication planet Mercury turns retrograde in Gemini and remains on go slow until June 22nd.
Sometimes, you have to play a waiting game when Mercury is in retreat. Or, there are misunderstandings or mis-communications which are tricky to sort out.
Also, on the 26th, there’s a Full Moon or Lunar Eclipse which cuts across the Gemini/Sagittarius axis of the zodiac. This is a social sector of your horoscope and Sagittarius rules children and lovers.
Eclipse energy sometimes coincides with drama or other people behave unexpectedly. Or, perhaps you’re the one who decides to do something wild or you find yourself caught up in a friend’s drama.
Eclipses bring what’s hidden to light. They’re game-changers and can turn life on its head. Therefore, it’s best not to be overly impulsive as May comes to an end. If unexpected events take place, take your time before you decide what next.
Jupiter Enters Pisces
Also this month, there’s big news as big planet Jupiter is on the move. It leaves behind your opposite star sign Aquarius and moves into water sign Pisces on the 14th. Jupiter remains here until July 28th and returns to Pisces on December 29th at the end of 2021.
Jupiter is the planet of luck and opportunity and is associated with plenty and abundance. It’s the planet of freedom too.
When you have Jupiter moving in and out of your relationship sector, you may have an opportunity to remove yourself from a difficult relationship, actively choose to be single or fall head over heels in love. Basically, it’s about doing what’s right for you.
Jupiter’s move into Pisces could mean you’re moving on to the next stage in a relationship. This might mean the settling-down period, creating a joint bank account and learning to live alongside another person.
Pisces represents sex and intimacy in your horoscope, so think about what next in a relationship and get serious about love.
Traditionally, planets in Pisces turn your emphasis towards money matters, especially joint finances and shared resources.
While Jupiter’s in this part of your horoscope, it’s a good time to refresh your finances and make the most of your money. You might be taking on a loan or mortgage. You could receive a gift or bonus. Or, perhaps you’re the one being generous with your money.
As Jupiter is the planet linked to the Law, you may require expert advice, especially when it comes to finances or legal matters. One way or another, Jupiter’s shift into Pisces suggests you’re upping your game. Look out for the right joint ventures and financial advice too.
