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
VIRGO: From now until May 24th, Mars sails into Pisces and in your seventh solar house of relationships. This energy can signify a time of conflicts, especially with those closest to you, such as your partner and others whom you must cooperate with. Even your intimate, positive relationships may suffer. The problem is that you will find it difficult to give in and compromise as necessary to proper cooperation.
In any close relationship, there is often too much compromise, so that the real complaints and grievances are not aired, which in the long run tends to weaken even a fine relationship. Now is the time when these repressed grievances can be brought out into the open, which should result in a real clearing of the air between you.
On top of that, Venus sails in Aries and in your eight solar of transformation until May 28th you are about to come face to face with strong feelings about an intimate relationship. This may cause you to seriously question your own needs and desires when it comes to marriage and commitment, perhaps facing a fear of intimacy.
If married, perhaps there is a change of direction based on your own or your partner’s desires, and tension may arise as you both tackle previously suppressed feelings.
Questions surrounding finances and sharing of material resources are also likely to arise. You may receive an expected monetary gift.
Work/Money: From May 10th through May 24, Mercury retrograde in Gemini and in your tenth solar house of goals. Since Mercury retrograde is a notoriously tricky time for signing contracts, don't force it. Until May 24, you're liable to miss important details if you rush. A client or boss could be demanding and frustrating now. Think twice before accepting any major assignments.
Focus on finishing projects that are already underway and on nurturing existing business contacts by sending out thoughtful handwritten cards or little DIY gifts if you're the crafty type. If you own a business, Mercury retrograde is a great time to reward your loyal customers with a special present or discount just because. Reconnect with old clients, colleagues or do a "year in review" celebratory lunch with coworkers.
On May 11th through October 20th Jupiter sails in Aries and in your eight solar house. The money, property, possessions or assets which belong to people to whom you have given, paid back, lent or shared could now give you enormous scope, and take you a very long way now. Lucrative possibilities await with joint finances. Cash saved or made, Virgo.
Others have a great deal to offer you now, and it is through taking advantage of this, or pooling resources, that you will be able to move forward. Legacies, your emotional inheritance, what you leave to others, any house or apartment, business or charity matter is at the heart of something not possible in 12 years. If you’re prepared to learn rapidly, with every deal, arrangement or offer as it emerges, you should take giant leaps into your own financial future now. This summer cycle is special.
