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
TAURUS: The New Moon on April 30th (Solar Eclipse) occurred in Taurus and your first solar house. This is the house of the Self. This house represents your physical body, traits and characteristics. It is now time to nurture yourself and be sensitive to your own needs. Start planning an activity that is what you want to do personally to nurture yourself. Feed your will.
With Jupiter in your 12th your house of our subconscious mind, from May 10th until October 20th, this is a very healing period. You can use this time to integrate all of the experiences good or bad that you’ve had in the past. This is a great time to start a meditation practice to let go of any unwanted gunk that has built up in your psyche. Restorative Yoga or Tai Chi would also be good choices to help cleanse the energetic body. Jupiter can bless you with the positive energy to work on your relationship to self-love and help you create new healthy practices. There can also be a focus on any health issues that have been buried or ignored that need addressing.
Love: Karmically, this is an epic time when you can either resolve issues with your ex-partner or be given the chance to form an important relationship with someone new. This is the duet or duel cycle for karma gathered about 19 years ago, Taurus. If you are already in a committed relationship, you’ll share the same (or similar) karmic goals now. You’re very different, you two. But you’re together now for a reason. Destiny wants you to make more of the karmic settlement. You are owed or owe.
Sometimes the duet or duel is professional, not romantic nor sexual. It’s different for everybody.
The Full Moon (lunar eclipse) in Scorpio on May 16th shake up your seventh solar house of committed partnerships. Eclipses are famous for sweeping away what no longer serves us and shaping wishy-washy plans into more definite form. This eclipse is the culmination of the last one on November 19, 2021 “Taurus Lunar eclipse”, which left behind a trail of retina-protecting "eclipse glasses" and shook up your closest ties (both business and personal) in a big way.
For some Taurus, this full moon could swiftly turn a relationship official—or bring a dramatic exit. Maybe there's a part of this alliance that simply doesn't work for you anymore. You could find the courage to change the terms and explore ones that suit you both better.
Work/Money: Mercury, the planet of communication, technology and travel, retrograde from May 10 until May 23, through Gemini 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.
However, that Mercury retrograde from May 10 to May 23, you should avoid signing papers or buying electronic goods during that time, so plan to do so now.
From April 17 until May 24, go-getter Mars tears through Pisces and into your eleventh solar house of teamwork. This is a time to formulate your goals and actively pursue them. You will be able to achieve your goals most effectively by working cooperatively with others.
Physical activity is especially good for you during that time, as are projects in which you work with a number of other people. You should get some strong personal gratification from what you do.
Since the eleventh house rules technology, you could be inspired to increase your social media following, or turn to crowdfunding to bankroll your latest innovation.
