Pisces (19 February – 20 March)
Work & Money Movement
May’s astrology is forward-moving and you’re wise to get in flow and get in step with this sense of progress. This is particularly important for you when it comes to work and money matters. In fact, the beginning of May is potentially successful and you can capitalise on the effort you’ve put in over the last two months.
As May begins, there are two planets in Aries and your personal money sector. Talk planet, Mercury, is here until the 6th and the planet of relating, Venus, is in Aries until the 15th. This combination is quick and speedy. Aries isn’t a star sign that procrastinates easily or stops to think. Instead, this is about cracking on with what needs to be done.
Also, your ruling planet, Jupiter, is in pole position at the start of May and links up with Mercury and Venus on the 3rd and 9th respectively. This is good news as Jupiter is currently in Sagittarius and your career and vocation sector. Jupiter’s influence here is encouraging you to play big and make the most of new opportunities.
Be The Best
Jupiter’s influence extends to foreign connections, higher education, legal matters, world issues and publishing. Don’t hold back at the start of the month. Instead, allow yourself to have dreams and schemes that can grow and flourish. Sign up for a course or event that encourages you to be the best you can be. The first weekend of May would be ideal.
Be careful, however, around people who aren’t on your side or who put you down. Saturn and Pluto, the slow-moving planets, representing limitation and power are currently in Capricorn. This is your friendship and group sector and Saturn and Pluto clash with the swifter-moving planets, Mercury and Venus. The dates to note are the 1st & 2nd, the 7th & 9th.
Notice who’s helpful in your life and who’s not. Move away from a group, club or society if it doesn’t fit your needs or support your growth. Trust yourself and your own initiatives and seek out people who will back your plans. This will help you to be the best you can be.
Family seem to be working alongside you nicely, on the whole. Action planet Mars is in Gemini and your home and family sector until the 16th. On the 1st, Mercury and Mars align and on the 14th, Venus and Mars are working together.
The key date, however, is the 1st because Mercury in Aries and Mars in Gemini are in mutual reception. This means they are in each other’s star sign, a helpful and supportive influence. Line up new goals with your family early in the month. Find ways to pool resources or help one another out financially.
You may find ways to earn money via your home, whether this includes having a clear out and selling unwanted items or moving in with someone to lower costs. Consider all your options here and act swiftly to take advantage of new ideas or opportunity.
Later in the month also spells good news for these key areas of your life. This is because both the Sun and Mercury enter Gemini on the 21st. Immediately, they come together creating a super conjunction.
This would be a great date to choose for a property deal or to have a family pow-wow or get-together. The Sun illuminates and enlightens and Mercury in Gemini is quick and clever. Act fast to get things moving with regard to home and family affairs. Sort out important correspondence and have those key conversations, the ones that really matter and make a difference.
Life close to home seems to be busy for you now and you’re wise to focus on your community. Not only are key planets in Gemini this month but Taurus is a strong star sign as well. Taurus rules your siblings and neighbours, your neighbourhood and local surroundings. There’s not a lot stopping you now from being spontaneous and initiating a conversation.
You might do this on your daily commute with someone you see all the time but haven’t yet spoken to. Or perhaps, you make an effort to find out more about the people in your life, day in, day out. Taurus’ nature is kind and caring. By creating close connections with others, you not only benefit them but it impacts on your life too.
This is the communication sector, so consider what this means for you and how or why you want to speak up, say more. You might sign up to a public speaking course, write in to your local paper or start teaching a class close to home. You may choose to help others, either personally or professionally.
The New Moon on the 4th falls in Taurus, an excellent date to sent your intentions and take the initiative. You might find that good news comes your way unexpectedly on or around this date.
Online communications are also-well starred and this is because of the role of Uranus in Taurus, the planet of change. Uranus rules all things new and modern and is linked to technology. Uranus is active this month on the 8th, the 18th and 22nd. These are great dates to leap into action, launch a website or online course and reach out to others.
Sometimes, Uranus can lead you down an unexpected path or take you on a diversion. Rather than leaping down a rabbit hole, ensure you’re not being lead on a wild goose chase before you set off and say Yes to a last-minute invitation, idea or innovation.
The Full Moon on the 18th does look glorious, however, as it lights up the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac. This is the time to be in the world, see more of the world and broaden your horizons. You might choose to do this physically through travel or seek out a spiritual, philosophical or intellectual path.
Love too could be a reason for adventure or new experiences. Passion planet, Mars, enters Cancer and your romance sector on the 16th and the period around the Full Moon is diverse and unusual for love. Be open to whoever or whatever comes your way. It’s unlikely to be a conventional relationship. Instead, it’s a love connection or romantic encounter that takes you by surprise.
