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.
