Key Themes: The nature of your mind, your sensitivity, healthier habits, learning from others
Sagittarius, May is going to evoke multiple shades of experience for you: potent inner transformation, clearing up your three-dimensional spheres, and exploring relationships. Taurus season is usually all about going slow and steady, but with an eclipse thrown in… this month will be a little different.
We kick off the month with a Pluto retrograde in Aquarius on (May 1st). Because this retrograde takes place in the sign of Aquarius (ruler of society and community), we’re going to experience an illumination of society’s underbelly. This will also likely mean major global and political shifts. On a personal level, because this activates your sector of mental processing – you might start exploring your relationship to your mind, in a new way. Notice the nature of your thoughts Sag. Which ones reflect old patterns, limiting beliefs or fears? Which are in alignment with your truth? This could be the time to bring your mental state into a deepened state of balance.
Note: this retrograde will be active until October. Rome wasn’t built in a day, so take your time and grant yourself patience.
On May 7th Venus enters Cancer, encouraging further journeying into your inner workings. This transit is one that makes us feel more soft and squishy. You’ll likely notice your sensitivity increasing around this time. That might just mean needing more solitude, space, or for the pace of life to slow down.
The good news is, we are in Taurus season, so all of this is definitely possible! If you feel so inclined, take out more time for yourself: enjoy nature, good books and nourishing food. This will be a wonderful time to seek inspiration. More specifically, inspiration that’s free of influence from those around you. It’s time to embark on your own soul exploration.
A week later, we have Mercury going direct in the sign of Taurus (May 14th). For you, this activates your sector of wellbeing, health and routine. It’ll be the perfect time to “spring clean” your life. Do you have clothes that need to be donated? An infinite t0-do list or awaiting assignments? As the sign of freedom Sag, trust me – you’ll feel so much lighter and clearer once you shift some of this energy. The worst part is starting, but here, the universe is giving you a push!
You’re further supported with this on May 16th, where your wellbeing sector is again activated by Jupiter entering Taurus. Because of Jupiter’s magical planetary signature, you’re going to notice a stream of synchronicity and luck, when you honor all of the above. Beautifully, making the choices that are right for you will pay off in a bigger type of way. Love that for you Sagittarius.
On May 19th, the New Moon in Taurus invites you to solidify these new healthy habits. What intentions do you carry for the next lunar cycle? What do you want the next month to look like? And how can you begin bringing exactly that into fruition? You’ve got this Sag.
The next day (May 20th), we officially move into Gemini season. As a result, you’ll likely feel almost instantly lighter, more balanced and social. Sagittarius, the universe is inviting you to open yourself up to new connections, or to deepen existing ones. For you (given it’s your opposite sign), this season is all about learning from others; expanding your horizons to grow even wiser.
