Yes! At the top of the month the fiery Sun and brilliant Uranus are in Taurus. Venus and Mercury are there too, but they move on fairly soon. This is actually a good thing, because these planets are heading to Gemini, which will help you earn more money.
You should be feeling fun and adventurous as May begins, May 2nd and 6th being stand-out days. Pluto is active in your house of taking risks and breaking out of ruts, telling you to switch things up a bit for your birthday.
But throughout the month, Jupiter and Saturn are squaring planets in Taurus. They are both in Aquarius, your house of career and authority figures. It’s quite possible that you’re getting fed up with your job, a boss, or a system. Days to watch are the 3rd and the 8th, when you might be more agitated than usual.
That said, if a boss is critical of you, are they saying anything of value? The same goes for a lover. Be honest with yourself. However, if you feel that they’re coming from a place of just being critical because of their ego or the desire to be bossy, then you may decide to create some distance.
It’s worth noting that the annual Taurus new moon takes place on the 11th! This is your yearly opportunity to launch initiatives that mean a lot to you.
This lunation has an energetic and fun vibe. You could do something spontaneous, like going on a quick trip out of town. Hell, you might even call out sick to your job. Chiron is in a funky spot at new Moon time, trying to keep you “safe”, but you want change… and you will.
The big story in May is that several planets are going retrograde. Back in January, Jupiter and Saturn entered Aquarius for the first time in decades. Aquarius is your tentth house of ambition and success, the place where you come up with big goals and decide to go after them.
Jupiter actually leaves Aquarius on the 13th and enters Pisces, a situation that’s not going to last long. Jupiter will return back to Aquarius on July 28th. It just so happens that Pisces is your eleventh house of networking, so Jupiter’s move opens up a two-month window of opportunity in which you should try to make as many new connections as possible.
This could be a new lover or some interesting BFFs. Get involved in clubs or volunteer activities. Find a mentor to help you with your career or personal goals, such as losing weight or becoming more spiritual. Tech ventures can really take off during this two-month period.
Saturn begins to retrograde in your ambition zone on the 23rd, which could slow things down. Decision makers might be unavailable to slow to act. You might start thinking about different plans for your life too. This is all the more reason to connect with mentors and new acquaintances, as other people will help you figure out the path ahead.
When the Sun enters Gemini on the 20th, your focus will turn to earning and saving more money. After all, Gemini is your second house of cash flow.
There is some serious energy going on during the last week of the month. A full moon/lunar eclipse occurs on the 26th in Sagittarius, your eighth house of net worth. Then Mercury starts to retrograde in your income zone on the 29th.
The bottom line is that there is going to be a lot of confusing cosmic energy regarding money in the last part of May. The eclipse could create a “two steps back, one step forward” kind of energy. Big money could come your way over the next few months but it might take longer than you’d like.
Romance looks fun and flirty all month, thanks to Mars cruising through Cancer, your third house of socializing and having fun. That said, you won’t be feeling like a player in May. Mercury and Venus enter Gemini early in the month, which indicates that you want stability in your life, not a romantic soap opera.
The new moon on the 11th could help you find a new lover over the next six months. Friends and online dating services will become more helpful when Jupiter enters Pisces on the 13th. Avoid getting involved romantically at the office, as this could backfire.
Those bulls who are already in a relationship might start feeling more independent when Jupiter enters Pisces on the 13th, wanting to hang out with friends. But with Cancer in your house of local travel, you can still create quality time with your lover!« This Week’s Horoscope Today’s Horoscope »
