We’re in Taurus season for most of this month, Pisces, which will activate your sector of communication. The key to getting the most out of this will be in your ability to express what you like and dislike firmly, using your words. This will help you a lot as we welcome Mercury and Venus into Gemini early in the month, which will activate your sector of home and family. You’ll find that expressing what you like and dislike has the power to change where you’re most comfortable, and also shift for you what it means to love something truly unconditionally.
Your planetary ruler begins its retrograde in your sign on May 23, and Jupiter, the Planet of Expansion, shifts out of your sign on May 13, to enter Pisces for six weeks. This will feel like a major wake-up call for you — but ironically it will encourage you to sleep more! Jupiter in Pisces will activate your security sector, teaching you that nurturing your emotional needs and not putting them on the back-burner. This may mean having honest conversations with yourself about ways you may have neglected your own sensitivity in the pursuit of more tangible goals. Balance the physical & spiritual.
Pluto spends its first full month retrograde in your sign this month, Capricorn, and Saturn, your planetary ruler, begins its retrograde in Aquarius on May 23. You’ll feel the pre-shadow effects of this retrograde as soon as the month begins, and since it’s activating your sector of security, it’s likely that money will be on your mind. You may be making it already, but is there a way to make it in a more easeful, flowing way? That’s what you’ll find yourself reflecting on. That may mean switching up your career or thinking of what your ideal work routine feels like.
May is social, expressive, and richly emotional for you. You’re completely rethinking how you relate to partners, lovers, and community, and should give yourself space to work through your needs and desires around connection moving forward. Jupiter entering Pisces shifts your perspective and awakens you to untapped potential abundance in your home and emotional foundation. Call in the comforts and support you need this month, both from others and from yourself. Passionate energy builds through the second half of May, leading up to a vibrant Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius. Milestones alert you to how much you’ve grown and signal toward ways for you to nourish and nurture your body, mind, and spirit more actively in this new era of being.
Now that you’ve made it past the Scorpio Supermoon, nothing about you is the same, and the rest of the year is going to hit different, Scorpio. You’re the captain now. You are entering eclipse season with a deep awareness of your worth and your magnitude. Self-confidence looks great on you! Focus on your financial security this month, even if that means having to do tasks that you’ve been putting off for a while. Write your will, start a trust, get life insurance, look into ways to invest your money wisely.
Taurus season highlights your sector of shadow work and shared resources, both of which go hand in hand if your goal this month is to learn how to trust again. As you learn throughout May how to enforce clearer boundaries around what’s yours, you’ll find that significantly deeper connections are made when you do feel comfortable enough to share. The more you trust that inner feeling of comfort and ease with yourself, the more opportunity there will be for you to tear down the wall that keeps you from trusting others and emerge into the world with a newfound sense of optimism and opportunity for Gemini Season.
