Welcome to May, celestial angels! April wrapped up with a life-changing solar eclipse in Taurus on April 30, and now you’re ready to take a leap of faith and try something new. The month starts out with an energetic shift on May 2 as Venus enters Aries. With the planet of love moving through passionate Aries, you’re less inhibited by fear when seeking matters of the heart—and you’re acting a bit impulsively, too. On May 3, Jupiter, the planet of opportunity, syncs with Pluto, the planet of power. Your magnetism is at an all-time high, and your hard work is finally paying off. On May 4, you’re ready to start something new as Mars in Pisces, the planet of action, mingles with Uranus in Taurus, the planet of innovation.
Change is unavoidable on May 5 as the Sun in Taurus, representing your sense of self, meets with Uranus in Taurus at the same point in the sky. This energy is palpable and a shift is needed. You’re eager to break free, but plans won’t go as you hoped. Unexpected events, information, or breakthroughs can arrive at this time.
Everyone’s favorite cosmic event, Mercury Retrograde, arrives on May 10—this time in the sign of Gemini. Mercury is Gemini’s ruling planet, so we can expect typical miscommunications, running late, technological issues and people from our past to resurface. On the same day, Jupiter, the planet of expansion, enters pioneering Aries. We’re seeking opportunities and following our dreams with renewed confidence. The last time Jupiter was in Aries was in 2010-11. Think back to this period of your life—what did you experience? Similar themes may arise in the coming months, until Jupiter exits Aries on October 28.
This year’s spring eclipse season comes to a close on May 15 with a lunar eclipse in Scorpio. Lunar eclipses are all about releasing. Expect endings and fated events. The Sun in Taurus and Moon in Scorpio will be forming a tense conversation with Saturn in Aquarius at this time, sparking feelings of rejection and restriction. You might feel overburdened by our responsibilities. Be easy on yourself, and do your best to surrender to what you cannot control. Remember, endings make space for something new and more aligned.
You’re feeling energetically drained on May 17 as Mars in Pisces, the planet of drive, meets exactly with Neptune in Pisces, the planet of dreams and illusion. You may feel called to take action toward your dreams, but you may also be struggling with a feeling of uncertainty on how to move forward.
Life speeds back up as the Sun enters Gemini on May 20, kicking off Gemini season 2022. Everyone is eager to connect and socialize. On May 21, the Sun meets up with Mercury Retrograde in Gemini, which can bring information to light. Pay attention to any messages you receive from your intuition. Prepare for a retrograde-y vibe shift when Mercury Retrograde re-enters Taurus on May 22. Financial issues or unexpected bills may need to be dealt with. This is also a time to review your personal value system and sense of self-worth. Mars, the planet of war and action, gains strength on May 24 when it enters Aries. Mars is Aries’ ruling planet, so when it moves through this sign, you’re extra motivated to pursue your goals.
Relationships take center stage on May 26 when Venus in Aries, the planet of love and beauty, squares off with Pluto in Capricorn, the planet of power and transformation. This reactive energy may unearth taboo topics, repressed feelings, or toxic relationship patterns. Carve out extra time for self-care. A cosmic blessing arrives on May 28 as Venus enters Taurus. Venus is Taurus’ ruling planet, so we can achieve Venusian pleasures much easier as the planet of affection moves through this sensual sign. Spoil yourself!
You’re feeling even more impassioned on May 29 when Mars, the planet of anger, meets with Jupiter, the planet of expansion, in bold and fiery Aries. If you’ve been holding onto some feelings, you may finally express them today—they’ll definitely be hard to ignore. The month wraps up with a New Moon in Gemini on May 30, bringing a fresh start to the Gemini sector of your birth chart…and a dose of reality.
