Aries – (March 20 – April 18) The Sun, the Moon, and the stars deliver a special event for you this month, Aries. On May 24th, your ruling planet, Mars, leaves Pisces and enters Aries. This is surely a cause for celebration, especially for your sign. Mars in Pisces has been a season of vulnerability; Mars in Aries is your season to shine. There are some keynotes to be mindful of on the say. Mars conjunct Neptune on May 18th invites you to choose truth and beauty over shallow promises If tempted to go ‘all in’ on making your statement, wait until the 29th when Mars joins Jupiter; this is the real deal.
Taurus – (April 19 – May 19) Anything can happen with both the Sun and Uranus in your sign this month. But there are a couple of caution flags out there that may keep you from the starting zone. First, Mercury retrograde after May 10th says take a second look at expenditures. Uranus may have you literally ready to take a major leap, but Mercury advises that preparation is prudent at this time. Secondly, Venus, your ruling planet lingers in Aries until May 28th. Aries, your 12th Solar house, is a natural place of rest and repose for Taurus. This May, take some leisurely days by the pool and put together your deep dive plans for next month.
Gemini – (May 20 – June 19) It’s important to remember that Mercury retrograde is not a pronouncement against taking positive action. However, it it’s also good to be aware of how to ‘go with the flow’ of the Universe. Mercury stations retrograde in Gemini on May 10th, and this cycle may be especially impactful for you. Orders and purchases may indeed go haywire this month; plan accordingly. People may change their minds. You might change YOUR mind! What’s good is that you are uncovering any errors and/or miscalculations. Truth reigns.
Cancer – (June 20 – July 20) Pluto is now retrograde in your partnership sector until October 8th. Pluto retrograde tunnels deeply into your psyche, unearthing archetypal stories that unfold your journey. Let your life become a real-time storybook, one that you observe, and feel into. Many riches will be unveiled, especially with the Scorpio Full moon of May 16th. Tune into your role as a child of the Universal Mother, and seek to understand how she has always been by your side to nurture you. Your sign is a natural ‘fixer’, but there is nothing you need to repair at this time. Let it be.
Leo – (July 21– August 21) Family secrets are revealed with this month’s Scorpio Full moon Lunar Eclipse on May 16th. Lunar eclipses stir up emotions, and it will be hard to suppress your feelings about the situation. The annual lunar eclipse also addresses what you are learning, and remember that any changes initiated at this time will ultimately be for the positive. Take heart, Mars keeps you powerful, and Venus helps to feed your joy. The North Node joined with Uranus in Taurus speaks to your date with fate. You have much to say about your destiny as you positively develop the events that fate has brought.
Virgo – (August 22 – September 21) Your super sensitive nervous system is going to feel this Mercury retrograde cycle. Events are fast moving, and you will be called to respond at a moment’s notice. There are all kinds of markers that highlight your awareness this month, Virgo. Your senses are alert, and your mind is working overtime. The best part of all this activity is that it also comes with a heightened self-confidence and certainty that your decisions are correct and that you are presenting yourself with authority. You may feel a bit jangled, Virgo, but absolutely dig in and come out as a SuperStar.
Libra – (September 22 – October 22) Are you certain that your finances are in order, Libra? This months’ dynamic Scorpio Lunar eclipse on the 16th may finally set you free of a long-term obligation. Often, though, eclipses have a hidden surprise – one you never saw coming. Know that you have more control in this situation than you realize; and don’t give it away. Uranus in your Solar 8th house now gives you leverage, once you figure out how to use it. This is a metaphysical moment, Libra. Embrace your power.
Scorpio – (October 23 – November 21) May arrives with an undercurrent of frustration for Scorpio. Uranus in Taurus has you raring to GO; Mercury retrograde after May 10th advises preparation and review. Plus, May delivers a powerful Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in your sign. Your inner world needs attention now, more so than your external, success driven public persona. Time is a premium currency and satisfaction to your soul is what you’re purchasing. Be sure to sleep well, eat well, exercise, and take care of your personal basics. Be present with self.
Sagittarius – (November 22– December 20) Welcome a season of creativity, Sag. Jupiter entry into Aries on May 10th signals that a season of Light heartedness is coming to your Jupiter ruled sign. I know that it hasn’t been always easy; yet you make it look so. Allow your zest for life to continue and grow stronger day by day, month by month. Stay true to your goals, and don’t be led astray mid-month. Mars and Neptune conjunct on May 18th benefits some signs, but it’s not so good for you. Jupiter conjunct Mars on May 29th is more your speed; it sets your free.
Capricorn – (December 21 – January 18) All things change, and this month offers you some ways to make positive strides. Let the Universe take the lead, though, Capricorn. Your job is to stay alert and then, when the time is right, to take quick and decisive action. Pluto retrograde in your sign is unearthing hidden situations that can be maximized. Don’t believe any dreary, fearsome stories that arise; rather, write your own story that develops you as a total winner. Allow. Welcome. Maximize.
Aquarius – (January 19 – February 17) Vesta, the asteroid goddess of focus enriches your inner world now. Vesta is one of the most spiritual asteroids, and her sojourn through Aquarius and union with Saturn will benefit you by granting true clarity. Use the Light of Vesta’s sacred flame to ignite your desire and the discipline of Saturn to refine your course of action. Such focus may feel overwhelming at times, but don’t allow anything to distract you. You may feel lonely at time, maybe even misunderstood. Take it all in stride, Aquarius and maximize this special time. Your meditations are powerful; your visions are true.
Pisces – (February 18– March 19) You are in a unique financial cycle, Pisces. Jupiter leaves your sign on May 10th and enters Aries, your solar 2nd house of earned income. Plus, Venus graces your income sector for most of the month also. Good things come your way on the 18th when Mars and Neptune join forces in your sign. Stay focused and see if you can find the hidden treasures. The moon in your sign on May 23rd can be the day that you ship comes in. Enjoy the happy days of May.
