Jupiter Enters Pisces
May could turn out be a month to remember. The big news is the fact that your ruling planet, Jupiter, the planet of luck, opportunity and good fortune, is on the move.
This is always significant for you but this year especially so, because Jupiter moves into your star sign Pisces on the 14th where it remains until July 28th. Jupiter then returns to Pisces at the end of this year on December 29th.
Jupiter is the biggest planet in the universe and represents all that’s expansive in life. This is the planet of freedom, encouraging you to let go of the ties that bind you and anything or anyone who holds you back in life.
When Jupiter’s in full flow, you want to see the world and save the world. Jupiter rules travel, education, spirituality, philosophy and philanthropy. It calls you out into the world and reminds you of your global connections.
What’s not advised when Jupiter is strong in your horoscope is to play small or stay close to home, if you have the opportunity to do otherwise. Jupiter rewards bold behaviour and loves the free-spirit, the explorer, the entrepreneur, the lover of life.
Jupiter in Pisces will expand your caring and compassionate nature, your kindness and generosity. Jupiter is linked to the truth and humanity so be true to your beliefs.
Do something special mid-month to mark Jupiter’s move into your star sign. It might be a social event or taking part in an online global conference or workshop.
There are other factors at play throughout May and the people factor is strong for you. The Sun is in Taurus until the 20th, the star sign which rules communication, your local community and new friends. The planet of love and relating, Venus, is here too until the 9th.
You may spend more time with your siblings, relatives or neighbours over the next few weeks. Line up an event on the New Moon in Taurus on the 11th, an ideal date to join a community venture, start a teaching job or begin a course of study.
Plus, action planet Mars is your fellow water sign Cancer throughout May and this represents all the good things in your life. This is whatever you ‘give birth to’, what you create, what you bring to life.
This includes romance and love affairs, children and pregnancy, entertainment and leisure activities. Now’s the time to follow your passion, tap into your creative source and trust your luck. The 2nd, 13th and 31st could be stand-out dates for love and connections.
Home v. Work
Also throughout May, the star sign Gemini is active from the 4th onwards. This turns your attention towards other people, in this case, your home and family. If you want to get ahead in these key areas of your life, whatever your current situation, get things moving and fast.
Talk planet Mercury is here from the 4th onwards and the Sun enters Gemini on the 20th. Communicate, negotiate, set up meetings, whether you’re involved in a family situation, a property move or home renovations.
There will be times when life flows in these areas of your life and other times when you feel conflicted about what you want or need. The trickiest period is the end of the month, so try and make any important moves before then.
Mercury Retrograde/Lunar Eclipse
There are two major reasons why. Firstly, communication planet Mercury turns retrograde in Gemini on the 29th and remains on go slow until June 22nd.
Traditionally, this is a time to wait and be patient rather than put too much energy into home or family-related matters. You might find you’re having to play a waiting game.
Another important date is the 26th when there’s a Full Moon or Lunar Eclipse cutting across the Gemini/Sagittarius axis of the zodiac and the foundations of your horoscope. This represents your career and future path, your home and your past.
This eclipse is part of the eclipse cycle which began in June 2020 and runs until December 2021. Therefore, you may already know what this is about for you.
Eclipses often coincide with change or bring important matters to a head. You may know that change is imminent with regard to your past and future, your home or your work. Sometimes, the unexpected kicks in during eclipse season and what’s hidden comes to light.
Impulsive moves aren’t recommended during the eclipse period. Instead, wait and see what plays out and give yourself some breathing space before making a major decision. It’s even more important to do so as Mercury will be in retreat for the first few weeks in June.
Think of this period as an opportunity to lay new foundations for your future path, even if it’s a bumpy road at times.
