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

LEO:   On May 3rd Venus enters in Aries and in your ninth solar house, bringing added excitement to your love life until May 28. During this time, Cupid could show up in the most unexpected places. Someone with an enchanting accent could sweep you off your feet—a good reason to take a vacation.  

In a relationship? Traveling together will turn up the heat. Close to home, add more variety to your date planning. You'll strengthen your bond by experiencing adventures together for the first time.

On May 11th thought October 20, Jupiter sails in Aries and in your ninth solar house of travel, adventure and higher education. This house also rules writing, publishing, speaking, inspiring, and other methods of sharing information. Jupiter's support here bring life to these efforts and major opportunities to get one's "message" or "mission" out to a large and growing international audience.

The 9th house is also one of the houses that pertains to legal matters.  Legal issues can come to wonderful resolution at this time.  Alternatively, legal issues could come up but ultimately if started under this transit, Jupiter makes the odds greater that the outcome will be in your favor.

From now until October 2023.  Here comes the node, on May 16th the Full Moon (lunar eclipse) also call the Karmic south node occurs in Scorpio, your forth solar house. You can build a home life now that has merit in terms of karmic balancing, quite apart from the fact that it’s your own response to stuff you cannot avoid or control, which is the making of you. It may be your family or your household, your town or country. You’re being taken back 19 years and 19 years before that, Leo. So, it may be mortgage interest rate increases, delayed building schedules, home repair costs…you name it. Do learn all you can and build a measured response to it – a sensible way to manage things.

From May 10th through May 23, Mercury retrograde in Gemini and in your eleventh solar house of groups/friends and project. With the communication planet spinning backward, you might experience uncharacteristic conflict in your friendships. Or IS it all that surprising? Take off the rose-colored spectacles and see if perhaps someone isn't the true-blue homie you (want to) believe. While two-week pushback can help you weed out the false friends, happy reunions are in store with the squad that has solidly had your back.  

With Mars in Pisces until May 24 and through your eight solar house of intimacy, this planetary transit is welcome for longer-lasting couples because it gives them the opportunity to rekindle the flame and rediscover sensuality.

On the other hand, single Leos risk getting into complicated situations if they get carried away by their first impulse towards more erotic than emotional connections. Remember moderation, but enjoy the ride!

Caution: As the eighth house rules big money, keep your radar honed for opportunities: property sales, dividends or a fat tax return. Just don't spend it all in one place, since this Mars cycle could also bring an unplanned expense.

Work: On April 30th the North node (Solar Eclipse) occurred in your tenth solar house of career ambition and success. Your role or goals in life? Your status and ideas about success? Once again, as you saw a few days ago, the issue will be debts or credits from other lifetimes – favors, promises, grievances, forgiveness, or other kinds of collections and returns!

There are no accidents in astrology, or in life. If you just happen to stumble into this, or fate seems to be pulling you inexorably towards a particular loop or circuit– take it seriously. Leo, you may have made soul contracts with each other, prior to this lifetime, so that you can meet up again and fulfill some old promises. At the very least, life 19 years ago will have its part to play.

On May 24th through June 2nd Mercury retrograde in your tenth solar house of professional ambitions. During this time, review (and if necessary, revise) your professional game plan to make sure you aren't scattering your energy or veering off-course from your goals.

Feeling burned out? Take a midsummer sabbatical and give your mental channels a break, knowing that you'll be sharp as a tack again after Mercury corrects course on June 14. Watch for clashes with clients, authority figures and the men in your life. A combative approach could backfire and cost you an opportunity.
