Big stuff is happening in your chart at the end of the month, Pisces! A full moon/lunar eclipse occurs in Sagittarius on May 26th, but you should start paying attention to this right as the month begins. That’s because Sagittarius is your tenth house of achieving your cherished dreams.
It’s no secret that most of us have had our dreams squashed by the Covid lockdown. This eclipse is a powerful event, designed to swiftly carry you into a new future, leaving the past behind. So hustle as much as you can from the jump.
As May begins, the Sun and genius Uranus are in your third house of thinking, writing and speaking. This is a very mental sector, the perfect place to strategize and toss ideas around with other people. Even if you’re not exactly sure what you want to achieve over the next year, with these orbs by your side you’ll have plenty of brain power to consider your options.
Short-distance travel is also part of this house, so if you’re feeling caged in by lockdown, see if you can get away someplace for a weekend.
Another fabulous aspect helping you is Mars in cancer. After all, Mars is the planet of motivation, and Cancer is your house of creativity. This is also your house of shopping, dining out, going to cultural events and basically enjoying life.
Depending on where you live in the world, you may or not have the freedom to go to stores or restaurants. But the energy is starting to shift in your chart. It’s all about living an authentic lifestyle, which requires getting in touch with your true desires. So even if you can’t go out on the town, you can certainly indulge in hobbies and creative pursuits at home. This is a great time for a personal makeover, by the way.
Pluto is retrograding in your house of fiends and networking, which could reconnect you with old friends, colleagues and mentors. A glistening new moon occurs on the 11th in one of the most social parts of your chart, the third house. This will open doors to reconnecting with others.
But the biggest story of all for Pisces in May is this: lucky Jupiter enters your sign on the 13th, a place it hasn’t been in over 12 years. This is a short-lived aspect, over by the end of July. At that time Jupiter retrogrades back into Aquarius, where it has been for the past few months. Jupiter will re-enter Pisces in 2023, blessing you with its presence. For now, the cosmos is dropping a sweet gift in your lap by giving you this ten-week abundant period.
Every single area of your life can benefit from this! Love, career, health, money, family matters, travel…..you name it. Don’t let this valuable energy go to waste.
The energy in your chart changes dramatically on the 20th, when the Sun enters Gemini. This is your fourth house of domestic matters, which governs your home, lover and family.
I have to say, this is going to be a bit strenuous. You may have to pay attention to your family more. For example, an elderly relative may need your help, or you might have to play referee in a family squabble.
Another way this could play out is that your family or lover may not support your new plans, which could hurt a little bit, but hey… you’ve gotta do what you’ve gotta do. You will especially feel this on May 21st and 22nd.
Mercury starts to retrograde in this part of your chart on the 29th, so this energy carries all the way into mid-June. Your fourth house does affect your love life, if you are very serious with a lover. Meaning, you’re living with them, you’re talking about cohabitating, or you’re married. There could be disagreements about where to live, whether to have a baby or not, how to handle in-law problems, and so on.
Another big story in May is that Saturn goes retrograde in Aquarius, the twelfth house of your subconscious mind. The bottom line is that over the next few months you have a lot of inner work to do. It’s time to release fear, along with old childhood memories and dramas. Any negativity surrounding romantic relationships from the past also has to go. So do bad habits that make you feel like you’re “less than”.
You’re actually in a wonderful place to do this kind of inner work, because once Jupiter enters your sign on the 13th, you’ll feel optimistic and ready to roll.
Let’s face it, doing inner work conjures up images of laying on a psychiatrist’s couch, crying your eyes out as you sort through baggage. And that it will take years to get “fixed”. I’m not knocking therapists; on the contrary, with Saturn retrograde in Aquarius this is a superb time for working with one. What I’m saying is that progress could be a lot faster than you might expect.
The full moon/lunar eclipse on the 26th is terrific for career matters. If you’ve been looking for a job or a raise, you could nail one within the 30 days following the eclipse. Self-employed people can also enjoy some big wins.
Just remember, Mercury goes retrograde on the 29th in your domestic sector. If you’re spending too much time at the office and not enough time with the people you love, this could come back to bite you.« This Week’s Horoscope Today’s Horoscope »
