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
LIBRA: Two major planets this month, Jupiter until October 20 and Venus until May 28.
On May 10th though October 20, Jupiter sails into Aries and in your seventh solar house of relationships.
If you meet a new lover, business partner, or platonic ‘other half’ now, this rather interesting man or woman could turn out to be of lasting importance in your life. There’ll be a natural sense of closeness – you like them or love them! A true double act is the prize (and it could be there for years.)
The Venusian and Seventh House rules, though, apply. This is a set of scales. Balance it. A special phase in an old marriage or work partnership can also begin now.
Even if you’ve been with this person for years, destiny will throw you more closely together for a few weeks, so that you can join forces to pursue a mutual goal. It may be as startling as separation or divorce, but ‘consciously uncoupling’ was invented by a Libran.
Libra, whatever this duet is in your life, one thing is certain – even though the shared aims and ideals seem to be the issue now, that’s just a first course. The menu in May is tempting, delightful and unforgettable.
Work/Money: On April 30th was a Solar Eclipse in Taurus and on May 16th is a Full Moon “lunar eclipse” in Scorpio (also call the nodes), both houses of money. From now through October 2023, the focus is on money.
It’s all too easy to rely on past experiences, or even past-life experiences, when the North Node is at large in your cash sectors, the eight solar house. The great irony of this cycle, though, is the unique position it will put you in. Never mind the fact that you feel as if you’ve seen it all, done it all, or had it all before this experience is the one thing that can help you explore in 2024.
The North Node into your 8th solar house will bring fated, transformative new developments in the area of deep healing, self-empowerment and other people’s finances, but there’s a need to let go of some attachment to material possessions (or your need to work hard for them) in order for this to occur.
For some of you, this transit could bring financial turbulence, for others a financial windfall, and for the rest, something somewhere in between.
Finances? The South Node is in your Second Houses, delivers people and situations which are familiar to us, because they tend to recur in an endless loop. In terms of 2003-2004, compared to 2022-2023, it can also serve up past-life experiences and old soul connections, in new disguises. Pay or receive karma.
What is likely to block you most is the endless repetition of the same questions, scenarios and outcomes related to this money or property matter. There is a way through, though, if you are prepared to work extremely hard. The shift will come when you reorganize your thoughts about this stuck situation. It’s very likely that you fall into a fixed way of responding, every time you hit the same predictable scenario.
Yes, the South Node will lock you into a karmic loop from 2002-2003. Life, the universe and other people will keep you there, until it passes next October 2023. Your own ability to stand back from the situation and see it in a new light is the answer and experimenting with your new perspective could change everything.
Mars travels into Pisces until May 24th and in your sixth solar house of work. You will throw your energy into working hard and getting things done. The best way to handle this energy is to find plenty of work and do it.
This can lead to conflicts with people or situations at the work place. Even if you are in charge, there may be difficulty if the people who work with you feel that you are not giving them enough credit.
The best solution is to maneuver yourself into a position where you don't have to work with or for others any more than necessary.
