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, you’ve been connecting with how you communicate, and delving into the magic of your exchanges and interactions and how they energize you. The rituals of your daily life have been coming to the forefront as you realize their importance. As April starts out with the New Moon in Aries, you will get deeper into the details of your day-to-day life and how your routine can allow you to thrive. It’s also a time to connect with the things you have to say. Especially the things that are outside of the mainstream narratives. It’s time to ask yourself if the projects that you’re being invited into have a place for all of the knowledge you’re here to share.
When Venus enters Pisces on the 5th, you’ll start to feel more at peace, like you can relax into your body and into your senses. When Mars enters Pisces as well on the 14th, you’ll have more money making energy, and you’ll be able to take financial steps towards your dreams. Make sure that you’re being true to your values.
On the 10th, Mercury enters Taurus, so if there’s something you’ve been meaning to say to your family members, this is the time. If you hear that you’re being too stubborn, it may just be that you need to mull over an idea or a decision for longer than usual, and that’s ok. Give yourself time.
Worldwide social events may start to feel a bit out of control this month when Jupiter and Neptune meet in their home sign. I encourage you to find solace in your self-care. You’re a very humanitarian and activist sign, you care a lot even if you’re not the most emotional person. We hold so much pain and unprocessed stuff in our body, it’s important to make time to listen to what it needs, and to really tend to those needs.
The Full Moon in Libra on the 16th will bring positive and expansive vibes. Do you have any philosophies that center your well-being? If not, it’ll be time to find some! It’ll be time to come into more experiences that bring you pleasure. It’ll be time to check in on your long term plans to see if they hold enough depths to truly inspire you.
When Taurus Season comes shining through on the 19th, your sense of belonging, family, and roots will come into focus. If you’ve been feeling out of sorts in these areas of your life, the Bull energy is here to bring you grounding feels.
The last days of the month are intense. Pluto will go retrograde on 29th, awakening old wounds that are ready to be healed. In your case these wounds have to do with deep psychic material. Meditations and transpersonal therapies could be helpful. Mercury enters Gemini on the same day, sparking your creative intellectual fire. It’s a time to write and speak your mind. And we end the month with the New Moon Partial Solar Eclipse in Taurus on the 30th, bringing deep healing vibes to your foundations. Make space around this day to just rest and be with yourself, without expectations.

On the 6th, Mars and Venus enter your sign, don’t be timid when it comes to using your power of attraction. It’s time to attract people that can help you with your goals.

Your mind will be more practical when it comes to your cash flow, without leaving the dreamy magic of Pisces aside. On the 18th, we have the Full Moon in Virgo, highlighting what can be accomplished when you come into the right collaboration that can complement your talent. On the 20th, the spring equinox brings the Aries Season and the beginning of the zodiacal year. Then Mercury enters Aries as well on the 27th. It’s time to reclaim a new and more uplifting way of thinking about your value. You are abundance.
The Lunar New Year happens on the 1st, marked by the first Aquarius New Moon of the year. The Ox gives way to the Tiger. Where we’ve had to put all of our focus into only one direction, things will expand. The Tiger wants us to follow our intuition and take bold risks. Aquarius, this New Moon in your sign wants you to explore your full potential. What do you want out of life? The sky’s the limit.

Are you brave enough to share what you find? When Mercury goes retrograde on the 14th, it’s a time to quiet down and to review all of the things you exposed and how they might have changed you. On the 18th Uranus goes direct just before Aquarius Season begins. Is your family serving as support or as a destabilizer? Find your support system. With the Full Moon in Cancer the next day, pause and take a look at how your efforts have paid off. During the last week of January, Mars enters Capricorn, and Venus goes direct in the same sign. You’ve been feeling the need to rest, to go within, and to connect with your imagination. Now you’ll have the energy you need to really give into the practices that can help you let go.
