The Sun is in your star sign Taurus until the 20th so there’s no reason not to enjoy yourself or at least allow yourself simple pleasures and indulgences on a daily level. Sometimes, the little things in life make the biggest difference.
Practise gratitude and do what you do best, put one foot in front of the other and take each day as it comes. The Sun is moving towards a supportive trine aspect with Pluto and Jupiter, on the 15th/17th respectively. Try and take a philosophical approach to what’s happening in your life, as this will help you make sense of things.
Both Pluto and Jupiter are in Capricorn, the star sign which rules travel in your horoscope, also education, where you find meaning in life, the bigger picture.
You have to work within our limitations right now but don’t let that stop you having a vision for your next steps. Find inspiration out in the world. The more positive your attitude to life in general, the easier your path ahead.
Another planet in Taurus until the 11th is Mercury, ruling communication. This is a great period to get organised, to set up interviews or meetings online and busy yourself with work plans or personal projects.
Mercury too teams up with Pluto and Jupiter on the 9th/10th, excellent dates to speak up, whether you’re asking about work, planning a talk or selling your services.
The more you believe in yourself, the more successful this month is going to be. Jupiter offers you chances but it’s up to you to make the most of them, so expand your reach and think big and see what can be achieved.
Venus Retrograde – Money Matters
Venus, your ruling planet, also plays a key role this month. Venus turns retrograde in Gemini and your personal money sector on the 13th. This could signify a shift with regard to finances or money matters. You may have to play a waiting game if you’re due money and it’s best not to believe everything you hear.
Venus’ major aspects this month are a square to Neptune on the 4th and 20th. This combination is great for magical thinking, dreaming up new schemes.
Yet, the flip side of Neptune is unreality, losing yourself in worry or getting the wrong end of the stick. Double check information around money and payments throughout May. Take care whom you trust as this time and listen carefully to your inner wisdom. Venus will turn direct on June 25th, a key turning point.
Yet, the 22nd of this month is significant too. There’s not only a New Moon in Gemini, a symbol of new beginnings, but Venus aligns with communication planet Mercury. This is a key date for hearing news or following up a conversation. Act fast on or around the New Moon to get to the truth of a situation.
You have Mercury in Gemini from the 11th to 28th and the Sun enters Gemini on the 20th. Therefore, money is a key feature of May’s events. And, it’s here where you’re wise to channel your time and energy. Develop your quick thinking and ability to respond fast to shifting circumstances.
A Passionate Full Moon
Also of importance this month is the Full Moon on the 7th as it cuts across the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac. Scorpio is your relationship sector and Full Moons shine a light on your relationships, both personal and professional.
If you’re in a relationship or married, this is a key date to discuss your future steps together. Your partner planet is Mars and Mars leaves Aquarius and your career sector on the 13th. Plus, this coincides with Saturn turning retrograde in Aquarius on the 11th. In fact, this mid-month period is key for a major change in direction.
Look at your situation honestly during the Full Moon and do what’s best for both of you if you’re in a relationship or married. Scorpio’s a sexy star sign, indicating a soul-mate connection. If you’re on your own, this may be a time when you experience longing or desire.
People are important to you this month and more so from the 13th onwards when Mars is in Pisces and your friendship and group sector. This area of your life promises deep emotion, kindness & compassion, sharing & inspiration.
Reach out on the 25th when Mars and Uranus align, the planet linked to technology. Some areas of life will start to open up in May, while other areas slow down. It’s important that you learn to adapt to our changing world.
