Your May 2020 Horoscope with Maya White

May 2020

Aries – (March 20 – April 18) Sometimes the path of progress takes a willingness to get your hands dirty. You’re going to be busy, Aries because you will be called to spring into action. You are the one who can be ready to go at a moment’s notice, and this month presents unique opportunities. However, with Mars, your planetary ruler acting like a pry bar to the Sun, the moon, and even Mercury, you’re bound to feel irritable at times. Strive for consistency and avoid extreme highs and lows.

Taurus – (April 19 – May 19) Venus, your planetary ruler will be retrograde from May 13th until June 25th. This is as a magical time to renew your inner strength, Taurus. It’s also a great time to refine things about yourself that you’ve been wanting to change for a long time. Dig into your innermost sanctuary and keep going deep - until you really understand your motivations. This is a time to replace your old history with a new expression of who you truly are now.

Gemini – (May 20 – June 19) You may feel a bit off balance this month, but for once, it’s not Mercury retrograde that’s mixing things up. Three planets station retrograde in May: Saturn on May 11th, Venus on the 13th, and Jupiter on the 14th. Honestly, this may leave you feeling out of sorts and not knowing why. This creates an unusual state of mind for your sign, but truly, it’s not you – it’s the rest of the world.

Cancer(June 20 – July 21) Get as much rest as possible now, Cancer. The new moon of May 22nd initiates a cycle of Light in your 12th house of repose and inner emotions. You have a tendency to burn the candle at both ends, and you know what happens when you do that. This month presents a true opportunity for you to renew and rejuvenate, but you’ve got to take a look at the ways you continually over commit. Make it about YOU!

Leo – (July 22 – August 21) May is your month to Activate the Law of Attraction, Leo. You are truly tuning in to new possibilities, and going with the flow is a powerful way to open the floodgates to all the good things coming your way. Think about what you love to do. Focus on that one thing that you are so deeply passionate about; and then visualize yourself living in the fullness of it – every single day. You’ve been working diligently for a long time, and it’s time to harvest the fruits of your joy.

Virgo – (August 22 – September 21) The stars are shining in your court, and this May will likely be a month to remember. It’s time for fun and letting your creative juices flow. Jupiter stations retrograde on May 14th in your fifth house, the sector of astrology that invites inspiration, and then encourages expression. What makes you feel good? And, what has been holding you back from fulfilling that vision? Make every moment count. May is a precious month for you - use this time wisely.

Libra – (September 22 – October 21) This is a powerful time for your spiritual growth, Libra. Connect with the teachings of Masters and let their words filter into your body, mind, and soul. Your ruling planet, Venus will be retrograde May 13 – June 25th but in Gemini, a sigh favorable to yours. Jupiter retrograde May 14th – September 12th invites you to get grounded in your home and you physical being and offers protection to your inner world.

Scorpio – (October 22 – November 20) Keep moving forward in this beautiful month of May. First of all, it’s a prime relationship time for you. Even in these days of social distancing and staying in more than usual, the Scorpio full moon of May 7th a great time to remember what love and romance are all about. Only once a year does the Universe deliver a prime full moon in your sign. Make the most of this ripe and fertile season.

Sagittarius – (November 21– December 19) Good fortune is on your side, Sag; you just landed a good deal. Yes, this is a time of extra stress for everyone, but your sign is the one that shines the brightest when the going gets tough. Count your blessings, Sag. This is a moment of great clarity for you; there are some decisions that you’ll have to confront soon, but not now. Focus on the present moment, make plans for the future, and make peace with your past.

Capricorn – (December 20 – January 18) May gives you the gift of great clarity, Capricorn. You see, you know, and finally understand all that you’ve been questioning for so long. And, trust your gut, because what you’re feeling is deep level truth. Now it’s time to relax into your truth. Correct what you can, but there are some things that you cannot change; let these worries go. Let your soul rest into this time of exquisite awareness.

Aquarius – (January 19 – February 17) Neptune is stirring up a financial challenge this month so avoid unnecessary expenses and streamline your spending. One of your best first line actions is to review recurring monthly bills; it’s likely that you’ll be able to plug some money leaks quickly and easily. And, don’t forget to have some fun and keep your creative juices flowing. This is really about tuning into the parts of your life that don’t cost anything but increase vitality, things like walks in nature and conversations with dear friends.

Pisces – (February 18 – March 19) Art, music, and creative projects feed your soul.

You may be unhappy with a friend or partner this month. Move past the stress and remember that you are the one who determines how you respond to any situation. It feels like an ‘itch’ that you cannot really scratch. Venus retrograde in Gemini is part of what is causing this irritation; and Mercury in Gemini is adding to the mix. Nice long baths with Epsom salt will help you stay calm.
