KnowAquarius Scope May 18 – 19

Aquarius, get clear with yourself about your exchanges and where you want your energy to go. Wednesday starts out with fiery Mars joining forces with dreamy Neptune. What are you called to put your resources into? The Moon shifts into Capricorn in your area of what’s hidden on Wednesday morning. Allow yourself spaces of silence, rest and recovery. Space to feel into and listen to the depths of your emotion, and the things that want to be released. Thursday starts out with the Sun and Pluto in a balancing encounter. Shining a light on the power of your inner world. The darkest places of our consciousness is where the greatest treasures lie. To go in you have to be willing to face your most deep seated pain. With patience, love and acceptance, this can be such a healing experience. As the day comes to an end, Mercury, in its retrograde motion, makes a sweet connection to Jupiter, inviting you to review how you communicate yourself in the most mundane of situations, and how you can become more creative and playful in your self-expression.


KnowAquarius May ’22 Scope

Key Themes: Communication, home, family, play, creativity.

Aquarius, the month of May will be a time to connect with your family, your ancestry and your roots. Spend more time at home, take good care of yourself. Don’t work yourself to the bone. As the month begins, you’ll still be feeling the effects of the Partial Solar Eclipse New Moon in Taurus on April 30th. Be present with all of the changes that have emerged within your home.

On May 2nd, Venus enters Aries, activating your area of communication until the 28th. Your words will be sweeter during this time. You’ll feel called to talk about your relationship with your lover, bestie or associate. It’s a nice time to have a check up to see where your partnerships stand.

On May 10th, Mercury goes retrograde in Gemini until June 3rd, and it starts its backwards journey in your area of creative self-expression. Give into playful creativity and let it take you wherever it may lead you. If you try to control its outcome that’s when limitations arise. On the 22nd, Mercury retrogrades back into Taurus, bringing themes from the previous Eclipse.

Also on May 10th, Jupiter starts a new cycle as it enters Aries until October 28th, joining Venus in activating your area of communication. This will give you more clarity as to where you need to work on your communicating skills, and in which of your relationships you’re both having trouble getting your message across. Jupiter, traditionally known as the great benefactor, offers you the opportunity to expand and improve in this regard.

On May 16th, the Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio is happening at 12:14am EST, illuminating your area of career and long-term goals. Give yourself the space to question your life path. Are you still on this road because it’s easier to just continue or because you’re actually passionate about it?

Gemini Season comes rolling in on the 20th, shining a light on your creative fire until June 21st. As Mercury retrograde moves out of Gemini on the 22nd, it’ll be a great time to activate all of the things you reviewed and reassessed concerning how you want to express yourself and how much you allow yourself to let go, give into play and take part in activities that have no real end goal besides enjoying yourself.

On May 24th, Mars enters Aries, joining Jupiter in your area of communication and daily life until July 4th. Take advantage of the energy you have during this time. You’ll be able to get a lot done and take care of all of the little things you’ve been leaving for later.

On May 28th, Venus enters Taurus, joining Mercury in your area of home and family until July 17th. You’ll want to become a homebody. Take advantage of this time to come back to your deep emotional needs. Give yourself the kind of practices, the kind of company, and the kind of pampering you’re in need of.

May comes to an end with the New Moon in Gemini on the 30th at 7:30am EST, helping you connect with the emotions that keep your self-expression at bay. Having doubts is normal, thinking that you’re not good enough tends to be part of the creative process, but when you dare to create in spite of this, when you try to jump as high as you can even if there’s the risk of falling, that’s where the magic happens.

Aquarius, the 11th sign of the zodiac, is known as the Water Bearer because its all about the transmission of elements and information. Aquarius is the humanitarian of the zodiac. Ruled by Saturn and Uranus, Aquarius knows how to remain focused on a project that will benefit something larger than their own self. Aquarius is the innovator of the zodiac, always ahead of the game, which is why they may feel like a misunderstood loner at times. At other times though, Aquarius knows how to put on their social hat and live it up it all depends on their mood.

Aquarius has a knack for technology that makes them a natural entrepreneur and creator. They would thrive as a techie, marketer, journalist, business person, activist, grassroots organizer and politician. Aquarius is known for having progressive and unconventional thoughts and ideas, so not everyone will necessarily be on the same page as them, and they really dont mind. Aquarius often paves their own professional trajectory. They dont necessarily view formal education as the main means to an end. Theyll create their own legacy based on their true interests, which are varied and changing. Aquarius does excellent work on their own, but they are also incredible leaders and collaborators.

Friendship is Aquariusforte, because they are quite observant creatures and they love to figure out what makes people happy and what makes them tick. So while Aquarius can sometimes purposefully get on your nerves just for fun, they also know exactly what to do or say to make you explode in laughter or to dry your tears. Aquarius is the kind of friend who will actively come up with solutions to your problems, as long as your problems arent super emotional or dramatic. Being an Air sign, Aquarius feels most comfortable in the intellectual world, and theyd benefit from befriending more sensitive types who can help them tune into their intuitive world. When Aquarius combines the intellectual with the emotional, they become unstoppable.

One thing Aquarius must learn to do in order to boost their love life is not fear their emotions. Aquarius tends to intellectualize their sensitivities and even hide them behind a mask of indifference. This is due to the fact that falling in love or even the concept of intimacy can make Aquarius a bit too uncomfortable they feel more at ease with friendship than love. Nevertheless, Aquarius is a sapiosexual, meaning theyll fall in love with your mind first. The key to an Aquariusheart is to be knowledgable, intriguing and curious. Aquarius will want to dive into your being if you can keep them interested and thirsty for knowledge. And while Aquarius will always seek freedom and independence in their relationship, they still make their lover their priority, in their own way. Everything about Aquarius is done in their own way, and that simply cant be changed.
