As an astrologer, I look to my ephemeris and astrology software to see what is coming up in the skies. Of course, I write these posts in advance so we're forearmed. I get them scheduled in between Mercury retrograde periods too. The one thing I can see is that we are given a lot of chances to reassess our paths. To focus on how we want to live our lives.
The month begins with Pluto starting to go retrograde in the sign of Aquarius. He will give us a double dose of what we have experienced since the 24th of March this year. Pluto enters Capricorn, revisiting the last lessons of Capricorn for another 248 years. Pluto will stay in this sign until he goes direct and then back into Aquarius in January next year.
We are still in eclipse season and have an annular eclipse in Scorpio on 5th May. It is time to release those dark issues you’ve been holding on to. It’s time to take your power back. Time to resolve those issues around sex and money. Time to balance your interactions and collaborations with others.
On 7th May Venus moves into Cancer. It is a lovely time to connect with your other half and get cuddly. It’s perfect for the cold weather in the Southern Hemisphere, where I am writing to you from. If you are single, expect new people to come into your life. They may be more comfortable with their emotions or rather have emotional intelligence. You may find that your time dealing with (as Brigette Jones would say in the movie franchise) ‘emotional f@#*wits’ is over.
On the 15th of May, Mercury stations direct! Yay! It will be in its shadow period for the following two weeks, so make sure you take your time in actioning things until then. If you can’t wait, be cautious. Look at the fine print very well.
Jupiter will be moving into the sign of Taurus on 16th May. The opportunities that appeared since January will solidify over the next 12 months.

By the way Taureans, this is your lucky year! When Jupiter transits your sign, you somehow cruise through it. This also applies to those with Taurus rising and Taurus Moons. Others who will feel this but to a lesser extent are Leos, Scorpios, and Aquarians.
On the 19th of May, we have the New Moon in Taurus which is a great boost for those feeling the Jupiter in Taurus vibes. It is a great time to set the intentions for what you want to manifest.
Keywords for this New moon are:
- Releasing stubbornness
The next day we have Mars moving into Leo on the 20th. Watch out if your pride takes a beating, as it will be easy to flare up to defend it. Take a deep breath. As Martin Lawrence's character says in Bad Boys II? “Woosah...” and rub your ears as you say it. It actually works!
We also have the Sun moving into Gemini on the 21st! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, GEMINI!! It is your month of rejuvenation. Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces will also get a happy dose of sunshine. The rest of us will get a dose of sunshine to focus on that part of our charts ruled by Gemini.
It's quite a mixed bag of goodies happening in the skies this month. It is also a good month for grabbing the chances the planets are giving us for a new beginning. If you find that you are going backward, that is OK. Life has a funny way of making things happen. Sometimes we need to go backward to go forwards. Sometimes we need to tie up those loose ends so that new things can enter our lives.
I wish you a wonderful month ahead!
