You’re moving through a more private time as the Sun travels through Taurus, but once Gemini season hits, so does the excitement! The month starts out with a lunar eclipse in Scorpio on May 5, highlighting your financial axis. Fated endings and events can unfold around your possessions, finances, or sense of comfort. You may be settling some debt or making a big purchase. Changes at work or the way you earn money can also shift at this time. What was unfolding for you around May 16, 2022? That’s the last time we had a lunar eclipse in Scorpio, and similar themes will manifest under these moonbeams.
Venus enters Cancer on May 7, ushering in a positive time for your public life. You’re gaining recognition, and it feels good! If you’ve been hoping for a raise or promotion, now is the time to shoot your shot. The Sun in Taurus meets with Uranus in Taurus on May 9, illuminating a secret or allowing you to break free from your past. Intuitive downloads arrive today, so pay attention to the signs, symbols, and synchronicities.
Mercury Retrograde finally ends on May 14 and any financial hiccups clear up! Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion, enters Taurus on May 16, as well as a private and complex part of your birth chart. Jupiter’s entrance here may bring financial support your way, but it may also bring loss or grief. You’re becoming more aware and intimate of your desires, and your intuition is also incredibly active. The next day, Jupiter in Taurus collides with Pluto in Aquarius. Intense and dramatic conversations or events may unfold! You may be reflecting on themes related to power, control, and moments of crisis in your close connections. Support is available—you don’t have to face this alone! On the bright side, influential people may also be ready to invest in you and your creative endeavors.
The New Moon in Taurus on May 19 ushers in a new beginning for your shared resources and finances. Your financial world and idea of comfort and security may be completely transformed six months from now. Mars moves into Leo on May 20, bringing drama and fun to your friendships. But be warned: Conflicts and jealousies in your friendships can emerge when Mars in Leo stares down Pluto in Aquarius later in the day.
The Sun enters Gemini on May 21, asking you to zoom out and think about the big picture. It’s Gemini season, and adventure or travel awaits you over the next four weeks. You may also be ready to learn something new or share your work with the world on a larger scale. Explore the world around you, whether physically or mentally—or better yet, both!
Shared resources come into question on May 22 when Mars in Leo clashes with Jupiter in Taurus. You’re thinking about expectations others have of you. Who is worth investing your time, money, and energy into? Someone may ask you for support that you can’t afford to give. Conflicts and secrets within your friendships or communities may lead to drama. The Sun in Gemini brushes up against Saturn in Pisces on May 28, ending the month on a somber note. Conversations are serious today, and your energy is low. Honor your need for rest!
