May will be a month of wins for the Rams, with positive influences passing through your house of career and reputation, making you feel like you can take on the world. In your personal life, you will find yourself more introspective and reclusive than usual, preferring to spend your energy working on yourself and your professional life.
Pluto continues its retrograde for the entirety of May 2022. When the planet of rebirth and control is in retrograde, it is ideal to look within yourself and determine what areas of your life you would like to change, where you need to exert more control over your situation. Not that Aries require much encouragement to take charge of their lives.
Mercury enters retrograde on May 10th, where it will remain until the beginning of June. Most of us know by now to beware of the times when Mercury is in retrograde, as these weeks often lead to miscommunication and unnecessary disagreements. Aries need to be extra careful of letting their emotions and their mouths get the better of them during this month's Mercury retrograde. You are not known for your tact or holding back your opinions, even if that means you will burn down a bridge or six. On May 24th, Mercury will sextile your ruling planet, Mars. You may feel even more confrontational than usual, with the sextile's influence whispering that you should act upon your ideas. Do not forget that Mercury is in retrograde, and that means you are very likely misunderstanding a situation or the intent behind someone's words. It would be unfortunate if you damaged a relationship over a misunderstanding.
For approximately a week, starting on the 7th, the Sun will be sextile to Mars. This will give you an extra boost of confidence, not that Aries often lack confidence, and will, in turn, make others feel confident in you. This week would be a great time to put in for that raise you have been considering asking for or applying for a promotion. If you have been holding back on having a difficult conversation with a loved one, now would be the time to have it. Your extra courage from the Sun will help you find the words you need. Have this discussion in the early part of the week, before the retrograde that begins on the 10th, for the best possible outcome.
The planet of love is entering your house of routine and self-care on May 2nd, where she will stay there for most of the month, not exiting until the 26th. When you find Venus in your house of self-love, you may find that you are more interested in being by yourself than entering any type of new relationship. This can seem out of character for Aries, who usually adore being the center of attention, but it shall pass in a few weeks, and you will be back to your vivacious self.
