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
GEMINI: From May 3rd through May 28, Venus (the planet of love and romance) sails into Aries and in your eleventh solar house of friends. This is a good time for group activities or activities with friends. Casual hangouts could set the stage for a serendipitous love connection, perhaps through a mutual friend.
Single? Give those dating apps another try. You could actually swipe someone with long-term potential during this Venus tenure.
From May 10th until October 20 is the time to make more of those Zooms, those communities and circles you are part of (or will join) and old friendships. It’s never too early to get the diary out, Gemini. Jupiter in Aries will not only give you the tools you need to feel calmer, jollier and more philosophical about your social life and people power; it will also show you why it’s the inside of your head that matters, not the stuff that is going on in the outside world. Friendship is a glittering gift.
Your existing friendships, which were there well before this cycle began, will also go through changes. Some people in your social circle will go to the next level with their education, career, social position, finances or spirituality and this will also have an influence on you. Through their growth and development, you will also be helped to grow.
If you have the chance to commit yourself to a group, band, team, club, charity, association, committee or other network of people at any point between now and October 2022, it will open up a whole new realm of possibility for you. There could be some glittering payoffs if you are adventurous enough, optimistic enough, and lucky enough.
Work/Money: With Mercury into your Sun sign, between May 4th through May 23rd, a time for keeping it realer than real. New ideas flood in, and you just can't shut up about them. Nor should you! You're an influencer extraordinaire, and your trendsetting ways are in demand. What would you like to become the Queen or King of in the days ahead? Dive into a solo project, invest in a personal growth workshop, and build room in your schedule to explore your passions.
Keep in mind, however, that Mercury retrograde from May 10 to May 24- takes place in Gemini and your first house of self. Flash back to your past and maybe revive a retro style. Caution: This won't necessarily be an easy-breezy cycle. During this two-week period, you could be subject to epic misunderstandings in which your witty words fall flat and even offend people. Too much self-promotion (or any self-promotion) could backfire too. Spend this time reviewing personal goals. You may cut one or two from your list.
Welcome to the new nodal cycle. If you have a part-time or full-time job, this cycle will help you manage your working life, by delivering the same people and situations in an endless loop. It’s the same if you are between jobs, Gemini, or just dealing with housework and other sorts of unpaid work, like volunteering, or caring for others.
Finally, if your health prevents you from working, again, there is a loop this month. The loop comes from the historic ingress of the eclipses “lunar nodes into Taurus and Scorpio”. In plain English, lifestyle, daily routine, service and duty to other people, your physical and mental health are the issues. This is a slow, radical, revolution. It is also a karmic throwback to life as it was 18-19 years before. Finally, it is a deal or compromise, and you’ll be figuring that out in 2023.
This cycle, with the South Node in your Sixth House, will alter the way you approach your health and well-being. I would say that even without COVID-19, Gemini as it is literally in your chart. By being stuck with ideas, habits or set-ups which aren’t appropriate for 2022, you think differently by 2023.
Not surprisingly, this cycle often sees dramatic changes in the way people eat, drink and exercise, and also in the way they approach addictions (anything from sugar to cigarettes falls into this category.) And you have some choices to make about who or what you slide ‘up’ in your life, and who or what you slide down.
