For you, wanderer Sagittarius, May is all about other people. The retrogrades this month can bring a frustrating change of pace to most sectors of your life. So many things are slowing to a snail's pace, but you’ll find your intimate and social lives are greatly enhanced. With most of the activity in your opposing sign Gemini, especially from the middle of the month onward, you’ll find yourself engaging in a lot of sharing. Your usually higher-minded discussions could give way to more superficial conversations. You have no qualms about this, though, as you’ll enjoy the intellectual stimulation.
Indeed, your inclination to open up does wonder for your love life. It even looks like a beautiful harmony is emerging despite the Venus retrograde on the 11th. You’ll have to work hard to avoid coming across as self-righteous, but that shouldn’t be a problem given your good humor. Others will flock to your fun-loving aura this summer. As early as the 7th, you’ll find your footing in intimate relationships. You can thank the Full Moon in Scorpio for these revelations! As you’re sure to notice, your propensity to live large and shamelessly flaunt your stuff will attract a myriad of new romantic offers. Just take care not to jeopardize a happy home for a momentary rush.
Also, on the 11th, Saturn stations retrograde and slows down your ability to earn. At this time, it’s important to exercise caution. Do your due diligence and research before making any major purchases or new investments. With all the activity this month, you’re more susceptible to splurging, so try to apply a conservative approach to money. As long as you’re able to wait and remain patient, you’ll be glad you did next month.
Mercury enters Gemini on the same day, turning you into a chatterbox. In fact, May looks to be a promising month in all manners of communication – platonic and romantic. After the 20th, the Sun is in your seventh house of one-on-one relationships, and your social sector peaks. You’re sure to meet new people, especially mentor-type figures from foreign lands or health industries. Prepare yourself for a fated encounter around the New Moon on the 22nd.
On May 13, Mars moves into Pisces and your 4th house. Venus stations retrograde in your seventh on the same day. This dynamic combo could bring up some past flames or uncomfortable feelings, but you’re feeling lighthearted enough to traverse the waters. If you’re single, you’re able to cover a lot of ground, and you ooze self-confidence. For committed Sagittarians, your sudden romantic gestures won’t go unnoticed.
This is a phenomenal time to be more tolerant of yourself and others. You’ll be blessed with an extra dose of energy, but it’s up to you to use it in constructive ways. Around mid-month make an effort to do something creative. It’ll be nice to quiet your mind for a moment, and whatever comes out of your artistic pursuits is sure to be nothing short of genius. Even if you’re not an artist, any explorative or open-ended studies are favored.
One significant hiccup this month appears on the 14th when your ruling planet Jupiter stations retrograde. You might not be feeling like your usual optimistic self right now, but the gloom is short-lived. Yes, you’ll be testing yourself to change your ways and become more thoughtful, but you’ll come out of it more rooted in your personal faith.
By the time the Sun moves into Gemini and your 7th house on the 20th, you’ll be eager to listen to others, so you absorb new ideas like a sponge. You probably won’t find yourself participating in the conversation as actively as before due to the retrogrades. However, this allows you to take a break from doggedly seeking the elusive “answer to life. You’re able to sit back and enjoy others’ points of view instead.
Whether you’re single or in a relationship, the New Moon on the 22nd ensures that someone will speak up about how they feel about you. Although, this isn’t necessarily a romantic interest. These life-altering words could come from a loved one, a crush, or even an arch-nemesis. The heavy retrograde energy in the background could very well conjure up someone from your past to deliver a message. Whatever the case, you’ll hear it loud and clear as you enter this new lunar cycle.
Mercury enters Cancer and your eighth house of research and intimacy on the 28th. This is a time to get in touch with the hidden aspects of yourself and to engage in a deeper, more emotional way of thinking. With all of your secret powers activated right now, you’re uniquely attuned to all things involving sex, death, and mysterious phenomena. You may even have a conversation with someone beyond this life if you believe in such things!
Above all else, May will pique your curiosity and send you on the investigative adventure you’re craving.
