One step forward, two steps back? Yeah, May has that kind of energy to it. It’s going to be a wonky month for everyone, especially during the last week. So let’s dive in and see what May has in store for lions.
Things are going gangbusters as May begins. The Sun, Uranus, Venus and Mercury are all in your tenth house of goals and ambition.
There’s also a new moon coming in this part of your chart on the 11th and it’s a good one. So things should really develop a lot of momentum in the first three weeks of the month, and it will be due to your hard work, creativity and focus.
However, from your chart it’s clear that business partnerships are bit dicey. There could be friction and power struggles.
Even if you’re not in a standard business partnership, if you retain anyone—like a consultant, stylist, attorney—you have to make sure that they are working for you. That’s their job, by the way, but we all know that sometimes these people forget who’s paying their fee. Days to watch are the 3rd and the 8th.
If you have retained anyone for a personal matter, like a divorce, this is super-important. Saturn will be going retrograde in your house of serious relationships on the 23rd. Make sure that attorneys and accountants know what’s going on and that they support you.
If you’re self-employed, it’s much better to hire outside contractors to work for you on an as-needed basis rather than to bring in a business partner right now. Just saying.
There are some smokin’ hot days for your career this month, notably the 2nd, 6th and new moon on the 11th. The new moon will open up doors that could have been closed in recent months, and will bring fresh ideas your way. The 13th and the 17th are superb for getting ahead.
Mark this date on your calendar: Wednesday, May 26. If you are working on a creative project or a major endeavor, a full moon/lunar eclipse takes place in your house of talent. This is some big stuff, Leo. You can gain media attention or kudos for your effort. Make sure that everyone gets credit who deserves it, as Mercury will be going retrograde on the 29th in your house of teamwork. This is no time to hog the spotlight.
If you happen to be working with people who are on the difficult side (and this includes personal projects as well as professional ones), make every effort possible to get projects wrapped up by eclipse time. Otherwise when Mercury starts to retrograde, things could go off the rails.
Online ventures can go exceptionally well in May: websites, online stores, blogs, you name it. Mercury enters your house of technology on the 3rd followed by profitable Venus on the 8th, so you have a lot of positive planetary energy helping you all the way until the 29th.
Helping matters along even further is the fact that Jupiter, the planet of abundance, pops into Pisces for a two month stay on the 13th. Pisces is your eighth house of big money, so hustle while you can between now and the end of July.
Pisces also is one of your romance sectors, and lovely changes could occur. Single lions could meet someone new, whereas attached Leos could share a lot of happy moments with their amour.
The Sun enters Gemini on the 20th, which is the most social part of your chart. But things start to get real funky on the 21st, not just for you, but for everyone.
Watch out for the green-eyed monster on the 21st and 22nd. People might be petty, jealous and competitive—make sure that you don’t lower yourself to their level. Group activities could fall apart as people don’t want to stay on budget or stick to their roles.
Then Saturn goes retrograde on the 23rd in your partnership zone, as I’ve already mentioned. The lunar eclipse in Sagittarius on the 27th not only governs big work projects, but your love life, as Sag is your house of romance.
From your chart is appears that good things could happen–such as getting engaged or meeting someone new–but that things won’t take off as quickly as you’d like. For example, you get engaged but the wedding is put off because your fiance is in law school and you don’t want to tie the knot until after he has graduated. That kind of thing.
Mercury starts to retrograde on the 29th in your house of friends, colleagues and networking. There could be some tension with these people; keep them out of your personal affairs. That said, old BFFs could return on the scene and a lot of fun can be had.
