Monthly Horoscope for May 2022
On May 10th Mercury retrograde in Gemini and Taurus until June 2nd. Generally speaking during a Mercury retrograde, we can expect delays, traffic situations, problems in communications (especially with telephones and cell phones), computer problems, delays in mail, and we never want to sign any contracts or legal documents, especially long term ones. We don't throw logic completely out the window, if something needs to be taken care of and is of an urgent nature, we don't put it off, we just do what we need to do and see what unfolds. For more personal affects, we see what planets and houses are effected in our Natal charts to define what area of our lives the retrograde will influence and what we can potentially experience during that time.
On May 29th Venus enter in Taurus. Mars travels into Pisces until May 28th. From May 3rd thru May 29th Venus travels into Aries. On May 11th Jupiter enter into Aries. Saturn is direct in Aquarius. Uranus is direct in Taurus. Neptune is direct in Pisces and Pluto retrograde in Capricorn.
On April 30th was a New Moon (Solar Eclipse) in Taurus and on May 16th the Full Moon (lunar eclipse) falls in Scorpio.
All Taurus and all Scorpio are strongly affected by these eclipses. Eclipses help correct the course of your life. Personally, a phase of your life ends and a new one begins. Whatever part of your life is not in sync with your true life’s purpose will show the most change and this can be seen by where this eclipse falls in your personal chart. Keep in mind that this is all good and part of your plan for growth as you are forced to finally drum up the courage make necessary life corrections!
In 2022-2023, we are into Scorpio (South Node, past) and Taurus (North Node, future) where we get to work on whether we choose Love & Money (Taurus) or death & sex (Scorpio). We have more work to do, and I trust that you are up to it. Use this intention setting moment to commit to doing your part to lift the vibration as we birth this New Earth. The work is mighty, but it is why we came.
We want to clarify our daily and monthly horoscopes are general for all zodiac signs and do not take into account of your personal natal chart. For a personal reading click here
ARIES: As loving Venus sails into your sign this month, you'll start asking for what you want—and more importantly, what you need. Venus is here for her annual visit until May 28th, helping you lovingly but firmly assert your boundaries. Don't put up with people not pulling their emotional weight. With the love planet in your sign, you've got star-powered permission to playfully explore your options.
In a relationship? You might ask for a little more freedom and trust from your partner, so you can explore your creative pursuits without racing home just as the muse arrives.
For the first time since 2010, bountiful Jupiter moves into your sign, ushering in a new era of confidence, optimism and positivity. Between May 10th and October 20th, you'll have a stream of opportunities to reinvent your life (almost) any way you wish. This time very much brings an energy of "It's all about ME!" This can be a great thing, especially to those who have suffered tremendously from self-sacrifice and self-neglect. As with every transit, focusing on achieving perfect balance is a great goal. Fresh starts and personal expansion, here you come!
Also with Jupiter in your sign, you can actually lift the self-esteem and self-focus to such a degree that it could be exaggerated into unhealthy conceit and arrogance.
Work/Money: Dollars are in the frame with the North Node “Solar Eclipse” and the Sun in Taurus (your second solar house of money) bringing talk or communications over finances.
Communicator Mercury goes retrograde (backward) in Gemini and your expressive third house. Until May 23, choose your words wisely, stating everything so plainly that there is zero room for misinterpretation. Can pitch meetings wait until June? If so, reschedule for then, when your charisma will be back full-force. If you feel the need to be productive, revisit ventures already in progress, including writing or teaching endeavors. A kindred spirit from yesteryear may emerge out of the blue—stay tuned!
You should avoid signing papers or buying electronic goods during that time. Anything you say, type or tweet could be misconstrued and potentially used against you. If it's the slightest bit questionable, don't share it publicly. Instead, utilize the upside of Mercury's backspin: deep dive into a writing project. Reunions with old friends will also warm your heart, and you may finally bury the hatchet with a pal from the past, you never know!
Keep in mind, however, that Mercury retrograde from May 10th to June 2nd. On May 24th thru June 2nd Mercury will backslide through Taurus and your second house of work and money, so you'll need to be vigilant to prevent errors and miscommunications. Think twice before you take on an eleventh-hour project for extra cash since it could sap time and energy AND become a huge headache. Keep an eye on your budget, especially when you’re shopping online, as tech-scrambling Mercury can leave you susceptible to fraud. Mischievous Mercury also likes to play tricks on the post office, so send important deliveries via certified mail or at the very least get a tracking number.
The month of May, the Solar eclipse (who occurred on April 30) in Taurus points to changes or challenges to your 2nd house of money, income, finances and possessions. You may be spending more money at this time or discover something is going to be more costly than originally planned. Investments, stocks or sales of property may not be so favorable around this time as well as an overall decrease of material gain. Now is the time to be frugal and watch your money closely.
With this South Node in Scorpio in 2022-2023 is about life 19 years ago, and 19 years before that. The May 16th “Lunar eclipse” also call the South Node, highlights positive changes to your 8th house sector of joint finances, other people’s money such as a lottery win or even an inheritance, financial obligations, taxes and estate matters. For the next 6 months, there is a possibility of a student or bank loan being granted, receiving a financial gift, lottery win or an inheritance. You might want to get a head start on your income tax as well.
