Your May 2016 Horoscope by Astrologer, Maya White

May 2016

Aries – (March 19 – April 18) Success comes this month when you’re aligned with your soul mission and purpose. Think before you speak, and look before you leap. With five planets retrograde at the beginning of May, (including Mars, your ruling planet) a simple miscalculation can mushroom into a mess. Yours is a sign of courage, but this month, choose peace and love. Stick to what you know is tried and true, and you’ll be golden.

Taurus– (April 19 – May 19) This is a wow month for you, Taurus. With the new moon of May 6thin your sign, plus Venus and Mercury – you’re in all-star mode. Jupiter and Pluto, in corresponding earth signs, add to your grand entrance. The challenge comes from Saturn who is busy extracting a piece of your time and energy. Don’t let the paparazzi irritate you; stay consistent and let your radiance expand.

Gemini– (May 20 – June 19) If only you could get everything done and out of the way, then you’d be free – to do what, Gemini? Mars and Saturn are playing tricks on you now. Mars wants your time, and Saturn wants your money; and both of them make it appear to be somebody else’s fault. The truth is: this is a season of detail work and scheduled productivity. It’s also time to claim the benefit of what you do well, and make it even better.

Cancer(June 20 – July 21) You may find yourself doing the same thing over and over this month, Cancer. Mercury retrograde impacts your plans until May 22nd, and if you start to feel like confusion reigns, just regroup and carry on. You will truly get ahead by looking past inconsistencies and holding firm to your plans. Jupiter grants a wealth of opportunities now, but you have to stay focused. Small messages yield big gains.

Leo– (July 22 – August 21) May is a lovely month of release for you, Leo. Like a prism, the planetary rays Light up a rainbow of possibilities. Your first challenge is to slow down, yet stay productive. And, you want to be aware of those who might take unfair advantage of your generosity. May is big on taking action, on doing and be-ing, but the wise person will also put some careful thought into nailing a solid landing.

Virgo– (August 22 – September 21) This month highlights protected expansion for you, Virgo. The planets have opened up the vault to Universal understanding; capture this information by recording your visions. The cornucopia of wisdom grants insight into both practical and mystical teachings. Although Mercury, your ruling planet is retrograde until May 22nd, this is a time of great clarity. Share this guidance with us, please!

Libra– (September 22 – October 21) With so many planets in your solar 8thhouse of Taurus, May is your season of harvest. This is one time when changing your mind does not serve you. You may even think that this bounty is not real, or, that it’s not quite time, but this is not so. The angels have been working overtime to protect you. Claim your right to feast on the time and effort you’ve put forth; it’s been a long haul.

Scorpio – (October 22 – November 20) Mars and Saturn retrograde in your money sector invite you to keep your cash at home. Just shift into receiving mode, Scorpio, because with Pluto beaming a rainbow of inspiration and color into your solar 7thhouse of relationships, people want to see your Light. This is your time to dig deeply into all that makes you happy; let go of the uncertainty that has haunted the past, and move ahead with joy.

Sagittarius– (November 21– December 20) If and when you find yourself feeling annoyed at missed connections, go for a walk and reconnect with your sense of joy and wonder. Jupiter and Neptune are performing a twisting maneuver on your sign now, and your best response is to get a breath of fresh air. Keep your feet on the ground; the forces of tension and release will naturally move you to the place you want to be.

Capricorn– (December 21 – January 19) The planets are presently activating your joy sectors, Capricorn; this is the place in your heart and soul where you live and let live, where you let go, and get busy making peace with your path. There is also an unexpected benefit to making time to play as your passion and natural interests fuel success. As you relax and enjoy your life, you’ll find that inspiration opens the door to productivity.

Aquarius – (January 20 – February 17) What an exciting time! Pluto, now retrograde, is relieving you of ancestral or karmic bondage and setting you FREE. This is about core issues; your very essence is transforming and like the Fool in the tarot deck, you are embarking on a new journey. You may have to wait a bit (after Mars stations direct on June 29th) to fulfill your leap of faith, but, I know that you know where you’re going.

Pisces – (February 18 – March 18) Many secrets are revealed. Motivations of others now make sense, and you see recent partners in a new light. Now you understand why things unfolded in the way they did, and the best part is that you’re totally free to move on. And, yes, Universal Laws will turn the wheels of karma. This is the beginning of a new era for you, Pisces; one that opens the door to equality and true partnership.
