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
CANCER: On May 2nd thru May 28th Venus sails into Aries and in your tenth solar house of career, giving you even more star power and influence in the professional realm. You'll ace any pitches or presentations you have to make over the next four week. Utilize Venus' creativity and spice up the graphics and visuals of your business cards and presentations. When it comes to love, opt for a whisper, not a scream. A sophisticated make under could help you attract a classier caliber of prospects in the game of love.
People in authority are favorably inclined toward you, and most relationships in your professional life will run smoothly. It is apparent to everyone that you are primarily interested in working harmoniously with others, and they respond by being agreeable. All such activities should go smoothly during this month.
The South Node (lunar eclipse) on May 16th occurs in Scorpio and in your Fifth Solar House. Firstly, you need to know that the Fifth House rules babies and children (your own, or other people’s.) Secondly, it rules sex and intimacy. The risk of unplanned pregnancy, or a relationship with a parent. Sons, daughters, nieces, nephews, godchildren, grandchildren are here too. So, go back in your mind to 2003-2004 or 1985 and ask yourself why particular matters are here for your inspection. You are owed, on some level. And perhaps, you owe.
And with the North Node (solar eclipse) occurred in Taurus on April 30th and in your 11th solar house. 2022-2023 you’ll be called to socialize and develop new friendships. The key here is to merge with group consciousness in a way that feels comfortable and nurturing. Fated, familiar-feeling connections to new friends and social networks may show up to assist you in moving into a new path.
This energy favors nurturing the group over focusing your own hobbies, passions, and romantic life, as well as letting go of old, rigid parameters placed around your creativity and play time.
On May 10th thru May 23, Mercury retrograde in Gemini and in your twelve solar house and in your twelfth house of relaxation and closure. This tricky cycle can scramble technology, communication and travel, so you'll have to be extra vigilant with your interactions. You'll be prone to forgetfulness and fatigue during these two weeks, and you'll need to give your brain periodic breaks.
Over-scheduling yourself is NOT advised. P.S.: It's okay to ask for help! The pull to be a martyr is strong now, but you'll only pay the price with burnout. While Mercury is retrograde in this reflective zone, it's a good time to declutter—and that goes for your physical, emotional AND mental space.
Then on May 24th Mercury re-enter in Taurus and will remain until June 13. Your relationship with your friend, or someone else in the group (club, team, Twitter or other circle) will trigger a classic obstacle-reward dynamic now. By understanding who or what the obstacle in the situation is (and who is doing the jumping or blocking) you will have your eyes opened and learn a great deal. Allow until mid-June for final details.
On May 11th though October 20, Jupiter sails into Aries and in your tenth solar house of Career. This is a good time to make your mark and put yourself out there for the world to see your greatness. You may get a promotion or venture into a new career field.
You can also find a great new mentor during this time (elders/bosses/authority). This could be someone who can help you shape up your goals to reach the next level. Be open to any opportunities to get in front of people because you never know who you will meet next on the path that could change your life! Jupiter is here to help you be in charge of your life.
