You’ll need to focus on your home and personal life this May, Aquarius. With your co-ruler Saturn stationing retrograde in your first house this month, your personal independence is getting weaker. This is a great time to cultivate your social skills given your propensity towards constructive conversations. With your ruling planet Uranus in Taurus making harmonious aspects to Venus all month, the business should be booming. Because this activity takes place in your fourth house of home, your family situation is unpredictable yet prosperous. You’re not one to complain about happy surprises, so May foretells an interestingly auspicious month for you.
True Node shifts into fellow air sign Gemini on May 5. This gives you the clarity you’ve been searching for and even a boost in creativity. Maybe you’ve been so focused on building sustainability that you lost your innovative touch. If that’s the case, you’ll get a breath of fresh air now, and the insights come to you in flashes of genius.
As early as the 7th, you’re likely to find yourself traveling to foreign lands or enjoying a bit of culture. The super Full Moon in your ninth house of philosophy means you’re tearing through books, magazines, and new methods of communication. This is all an effort to activate your higher mind and absorb information from sources outside yourself. Don’t forget to remain objective! If you pay attention, you’re likely to find new sources of income using what you learn.
On the 11th, your co-ruler Saturn stations retrograde and knocks down all the walls you’ve put around you. It could be easy to take things like changed plans personally for a couple of days. No need to worry, though. This is an important and necessary transit that will put you on your divine path. At this time, it’s important to be aware of your self-will. You don’t want to waste any time resisting change because you think you’re comfortable with how things are.
Mercury enters Gemini on the same day in your fifth house of creativity. During this transit, your mental connection is fused with your creative self-expression. This bodes well for fun, play, and romance. You’ll enjoy games and good-natured mental competitions as they’ll scratch your intellectual itch. Your love life becomes more about fun and entertainment than commitment, and communication with potential conquests is blossoming. You will have more of an adaptable, energetic, active and versatile mind. From the 11th onward, but especially on the 20th, you’re seeking knowledge through travel and conversation with new people you meet.
On May 13, Mars moves into Pisces and your second house. Your intuition is on point when it comes to finances and money. You’ll even enjoy some financial gain from your intellectual skills, if you so choose. Try your hand at writing, sales, marketing, or anything involving digital media. Do keep an eye out for scammers though, as this transit could pull the wool over your eyes with the appearance of get-rich-quick scammers.
You’ll be happy to hear those wonderful career developments are underfoot, even with Jupiter stationing retrograde on the 14th. The downside of this energy is that you may not see the growth of your professional life until some months later. As long as you can avert your focus from work-life stagnancy toward family and social pursuits, job opportunities will present themselves later.
Up until the 20th, the sun is lighting up your family connections and how they play a role in the love you receive. You’ll be finding your comfort close to home, and it’s possible one of your relatives knows someone who’s just your type! You’ll have to make an additional effort to keep from “living in the past” because of the retrograde activity. To recognize and secure the type of love you’re looking for, you need to be living in the present! That’s not to say you can’t reminisce on old experiences. Not at all, but it’s important that you take care of any expired connections.
Around May 22nd, you can expect the ghostly appearance of an old flame or lover from your past. They may very well appear under the dark cover of the New Moon. Alternatively, you may stumble across someone different altogether who resembles this person. Whatever the case, you’ll be faced with a decision. Will you begin this new lunar cycle by reaching for what you’ve already had, or will you take a risk and try something new?
Mercury enters Cancer and your sixth house of health and service on the 28th. This is a time to pay attention to the details regarding wellbeing and work. Your concentration is influenced by your emotions, but not in a bad way! Instead, you use your feelings to inform you about your next steps.
To sum it up, May will throw you more than enough curveballs to keep things interesting.
