Sun conjunct Mercury: Cazimi Alert

Sun conjunct Mercury [0 Gemini 12] – May 21 2019 (14:07 GMT+1)

Swift-moving planetary activity takes place today involving the Sun and communication planet, Mercury.

Mercury never moves far away from the Sun in the zodiac. When you’re born, Mercury will nearly always be in the same sign as the Sun or one sign before or after.

This means that the Sun and Mercury make a conjunction in the zodiac a few times a year, when they sit side-by-side. Sometimes, Mercury is retrograde. Other times, it is in direct motion, as today.

When Mercury is within 17′ arc of the Sun, this is called ‘cazimi’ in astrology. It means that Mercury is close within the rays of the Sun, bringing illumination and enlightenment.

It’s as if Mercury is sitting very close to the King of the heavens, as the Sun whispers important information and unique insights into Mercury’s ear.

The Sun’s power and vitality brings out the best in Mercury, already strong in its sign of rulership, Gemini. Plus, they meet at 0 degrees Gemini, a seed degree, the first degree of the sign, excellent for initiating new beginnings.

This ‘cazimi’ moment lasts for approximately eight hours today. It’s strongest from mid-day (GMT +1) when Mercury has entered Gemini until 8 pm (GMT+1).

The big question is: what are you going to ask? How are you going to use this unique signature in the zodiac to its best potential? Both the Sun and Mercury enter Gemini, the sign of communication today and immediately talk, unite, negotiate, plot & scheme.

This is perfect for sending off a proposal, writing that important email, sending off an impromptu text, having that significant conversation, starting your manuscript, book, journal.

Gemini rules all forms of communication, the written and spoken word. The cazimi conjunction can spark great ideas. Good news may come your way. Or perhaps, you are the bearer of good news.

Play around with this symbolism and make the most of Mercury’s audience with the King of the heavens. You have his attention – what will you say? You are hearing his insights – how will you use them?

Read your Sun sign/Ascendant sign below to see which area of your horoscope this cazimi magic highlights:

  • Gemini – personal goals & self-image
  • Cancer – solitude & inner work
  • Leo – friends & wider society
  • Virgo – career & status
  • Libra – travel & study
  • Scorpio – joint finances & sexuality
  • Sagittarius – love & relationships
  • Capricorn – job & health
  • Aquarius – birth i.e. kids, romance, creative project
  • Pisces – home & family
  • Aries – local community & ideas
  • Taurus – money & values

Full Moon Scorpio: Passions Run Deep

Full Moon [27 Scorpio 38]

London – May 18 2019 (22:11 GMT+1))

New York – May 18 2019 (17:11 GMT-4)

Sydney – May 19 2019 (07:11 GMT+10)

The Moon is currently reaching its monthly peak, swelling in size night by night. This month, the Full Moon takes place in the deep & dark water sign, Scorpio, the star sign linked to healing, regeneration & transformation.

Scorpio rules sex, money, death & rebirth and all things taboo. It’s linked to the psyche and what’s hidden. Scorpio’s keyword is power, whether you use it to good or bad effect. We’re hanging out in the underworld when we’re in Scorpio’s domain.

Full Moon Energy

Full Moons are a time when emotions are heightened and important matters can be brought to completion. The light of the Full Moon is exposing, sometimes confrontational.

In Scorpio, you can enter into the dark, untouched places releasing emotions that have been hidden away or ignored. You encounter the shadow side of life. By digging deep, you find the part of yourself that’s fearless, authentic and real.

This is not always a comfortable place to be. If you are a Scorpio or have Scorpio planets in your chart, you might already understand that a journey through the underworld can unearth hidden riches. When you explore and embrace all of life, the dark as well as the light, you tend to emerge wiser and stronger for the experience.

Cycle of Life & Death

The cycle of life and death is clearly shown through the opposite signs of Taurus and Scorpio. During this Full Moon, the Sun is in the earth sign Taurus linked to nature and growth and the Moon is in the water sign Scorpio linked to death, also rebirth. Regeneration, compost, the eternal cycle of life and death which is never-ending.

The Full Moon in Scorpio can highlight where you need to be healed and where best to channel your own healing abilities. You might uncover issues around power or where you feel powerless. You might discover where you’re in control and where you can tap into your own inner power to accomplish incredible feats.

Venus/Uranus [4 degrees Taurus]

There are two other key factors to note during this Full Moon weekend. Firstly, there’s a Venus/Uranus conjunction on the same day as the Full Moon. Venus rules love and money, art and beauty. It’s strong in Taurus.

Uranus is the planet of the unexpected. Put the two together and love is potentially exciting & unpredictable, fast & furious. Liaisons may begin swiftly and sweep you off your feet or can end quickly too.

Moon/Mars Mutual Reception

Also, Mars rules this Full Moon as the traditional ruler of Scorpio. Mars is now in Cancer which means that the Moon and Mars are in mutual reception, i.e. in each other’s sign of rulership. This means they’re working together, united in a common cause. You can read this astrology in different ways.

One current example is that Cancer rules the womb and Mars, ruling men, is interfering in women’s business. This shows up clearly in the men who are inflicting their control on women’s bodies in the outrageous abortion laws in Alabama.

Yet, women, represented by Venus, are strong in Taurus. Plus, they have the power of the internet/social media and the collective, represented by Uranus. Stand up for what you believe in this weekend. Take care of the earth, Taurus, and nurture women’s rights, Venus/Uranus.

It’s a heady mix of planetary activity during this weekend’s Full Moon. Emotional and passionate, intense and surprising. May it play out in your own life in ways that are thrilling and exciting. This is what I wish for you.

Harry And Meghan’s Baby: 21st Century Royal

The new royal baby kept us waiting. In May 2018, after Harry & Meghan’s wedding, I had predicted a pregnancy announcement in the autumn. We first heard about the pregnancy in October 2018.

I was then asked to predict a date of birth last year for the press and I plumped for the Full Moon in Libra two weeks ago. Meghan’s Moon is in Libra and I had an inkling that the new baby might be a fiery Sun Aries, independent and bold.

Harry & Meghan are a 21st century royal couple and Meghan wasn’t a typical choice for a ‘royal bride’ for various reasons; older than Harry, mixed-race, TV star, etc. The new couple flouted convention at their wedding, choosing their celebrity friends as guests and opting for an eclectic wedding service.

Around the Full Moon in Libra on April 19th, numerous psychics and clairvoyants were saying the baby was already here. News that the couple wouldn’t announce the birth immediately seemed to confirm this fact.

Plus, astrologers were aware of the Sun/Uranus conjunction in Taurus, exact on April 22nd. Uranus is the planet of unconventionality and Uranus was a key planet during Harry & Meghan’s wedding.

The word was out that this baby would not fit the conventional archetype of the royals. And then…. the waiting began. Finally, the birth announcement came almost immediately after the baby’s birth, two days after the New Moon in Taurus on May 4th.

New Moon babies are natural born leaders and a first glance at the baby’s horoscope shows traditional rather than unconventional astrological signatures. Here are some quick pointers about the baby’s horoscope.

Sun Taurus

The new baby is Sun Taurus, the perfect star sign for being part of the Windsor family. Great Granny (the Queen), plus two of his cousins, Charlotte & Louis are Sun Taurus. Grandad (Charles) and Dad (Harry) both have their Moon in Taurus. Typical Taurus traits are patience & reliability, a sensual appetite for life and a love of nature. They can be stubborn too.

The Sun, representing the father in astrology, is on the baby’s Taurus Ascendant, the sign that was rising when he was born. It’s one factor in the horoscope which suggests a close connection with Harry, his Dad.

Harry and his new baby are both earth sign Suns, Virgo & Taurus. They share the placing of Saturn, the planet of responsibility, on the Midheaven, the career/destiny point in the birth chart. Money (Sun/Ascendant Taurus) and status (Saturn/Midheaven Capricorn) are key elements of the new baby’s ‘royal’ pedigree.

The baby’s horoscope indicates he will be a good looker too, as his Taurus Ascendant is ruled by Venus, the planet of beauty. With the Sun conjunct his Ascendant, he’ll know how to get noticed. Although, with a full 12th house, his horoscope indicates that he will want to keep certain aspects of his life private.

Saturn/Pluto/South Node Capricorn

In fact, this young man may not always be comfortable with the level of responsibility and demands of his royal destiny. He’s born during the Saturn/Pluto/South Node combination in Capricorn, a symbol of evolving and changing times in the world.

As this trio fall on his Capricorn Midheaven, he could be pulled into playing a role that he finds difficult or challenging. It suggests a weight of responsibility that he may not want to avoid or be able to steer away from. With the North Node conjunct his Cancer IC, his family and personal life is likely to bring him the most fulfilment but it won’t always be an easy path to walk.

He may choose to keep his love life and personal preferences to himself or prioritise them over his public destiny. Note his ruling planet Venus is hidden away in his horoscope and square to the formidable trio of Saturn/Pluto/South Node on the Midheaven.

Moon Gemini

A lively Moon Gemini indicates a mischievous & chatty nature (born half an hour earlier and he would have been a triple Taurus – Sun/Moon/Ascendant Taurus). The Moon rules the mother in astrology. The new baby’s Moon Gemini will connect him closely to his Mum, Meghan, an extrovert yet gentle Sun Leo/Moon Libra combination.

Other factors in the horoscope suggest he’ll be wickedly witty and won’t shy away from controversy. Communication planet, Mercury, is in fiery Aries and moving towards a conjunction with live-wire Uranus in Taurus. Yet, both planets are ‘behind closed doors’ in the 12th house. Often, you find that individuals in the public eye have a full 12th house, as there are clear divides between their public and private personas.

21st Century Royal

The fiery personality is definitely there, thanks to Venus in Aries and a Mercury Aries/Uranus Taurus conjunction. Plus, the new baby was born on the day of a Mars/Jupiter opposition, which adds adventure and daring to the mix.

This whole combination – Mars Gemini/Jupiter Sagittarius – indicates a love of learning and a passion for foreign cultures and worldly ideas. Two passports, two homes/countries, a product of his diverse family background. The map of the heavens during his birth shows both the traditional family he was born into and his place in the world as a 21st century royal.

The Ideal Godparent

Harry & Meghan’s new baby boy shares a birthday with their celebrity friend George Clooney (May 6). He would be the ideal new godparent welcoming the new baby in to a world of luxury, class and limitless opportunity.

Top Tips For The Taurus New Moon

 

New Moon [14 Taurus 11]

Saturday 4 May 2019 (23:45 GMT+1) – London

Saturday 4 May 2019 (18:45 GMT-4) – New York

Sunday 5 May 2019 (08:45 GMT+10) – Sydney

New Moon alert! It’s that time of the month when we await a new lunar cycle which always begins with the New Moon. This New Moon is possibly one of the best of the year. This is because it takes place in Taurus, a sign that’s much loved by the Moon. It’s thought of as a ‘safe harbour’.

Plus, this New Moon stands alone, supported by helpful planetary aspects. The Sun and Moon sit side by side in the zodiac, the perfect team; the King (Sun) and Queen (Moon) of the sky, the Sun ruling the day and the Moon the night.

Here are some top tips on how to make the most of the New Moon’s potential:

1. Set your intentions for the month ahead. Launch a project, start something new. The best time to do this is a day or two after the New Moon when the New Moon energy kicks in. The following fortnight is great for being pro-active and taking the initiative in all areas.

2. Make a wish on the crescent moon. This will appear in the night sky on May 5th/6th. When you first catch a glimpse of the Moon, make your wish as New Moon wishes can come true.

3. Write an abundance cheque. You can do this with any cheque. Write your name where it says ‘payee’, add how much you want to receive, choose any figure you like, the more abundant the better and sign it ‘with love from the universe’. Tuck it away and wait and see what manifests by the time of the Full Moon in two weeks. This is doubly advantageous because Taurus is the sign that rules money so make the most of this potentially abundant New Moon.

4. Be in nature. Taurus is one of the earth signs so revel in simple pleasures, the glory and beauty of nature that’s all around you. Stop what you’re doing, sit or walk outside, give thanks for the constancy of nature

5. Sing. Taurus rules the throat and there are many amazing Taurus singers with unique voices. Adele (b. May 5 1988) is a fine example. Sing in a choir, sing to your children, sing in the shower.

6. Eat, drink and be merry. Taurus is one of the sensual earth signs linked to food and produce. So make this a special New Moon and savour good food, enjoy good company and share in good times. If you’re a budding chef, knock up a special meal for your loved ones. Be happy.

7. Embrace change. Taurus is a slow and steady earth sign but the planet of revolution and innovation, Uranus, is also in Taurus. Become an activist and join the growing band of people who realise that our earth, our land is precious. Fight for climate change, use less of the earth’s resources and be more thoughtful about how you tend to the earth. This is our home but it won’t be for ever if we don’t take good care of the place we live.

Finally, here’s a quick reminder which areas of life are lit up for you during the New Moon:

  • Aries – money & values
  • Taurus – personal goals & self image
  • Gemini – solitude & secrets
  • Cancer – friends & wider society
  • Leo – career & status
  • Virgo – travel & study
  • Libra – joint finances & sexuality
  • Scorpio – love & relationships
  • Sagittarius – job & health
  • Capricorn – birth i.e. kids, romance, creative project
  • Aquarius – home & family
  • Pisces – local community & ideas

Wishing you much happiness, laughter and abundance on a glorious New Moon in Taurus.

Pisces May 2019

 

Pisces (19 February – 20 March)

Work & Money Movement

May’s astrology is forward-moving and you’re wise to get in flow and get in step with this sense of progress. This is particularly important for you when it comes to work and money matters. In fact, the beginning of May is potentially successful and you can capitalise on the effort you’ve put in over the last two months.

As May begins, there are two planets in Aries and your personal money sector. Talk planet, Mercury, is here until the 6th and the planet of relating, Venus, is in Aries until the 15th. This combination is quick and speedy. Aries isn’t a star sign that procrastinates easily or stops to think. Instead, this is about cracking on with what needs to be done.

Also, your ruling planet, Jupiter, is in pole position at the start of May and links up with Mercury and Venus on the 3rd and 9th respectively. This is good news as Jupiter is currently in Sagittarius and your career and vocation sector. Jupiter’s influence here is encouraging you to play big and make the most of new opportunities.

Be The Best

Jupiter’s influence extends to foreign connections, higher education, legal matters, world issues and publishing. Don’t hold back at the start of the month. Instead, allow yourself to have dreams and schemes that can grow and flourish. Sign up for a course or event that encourages you to be the best you can be. The first weekend of May would be ideal.

Be careful, however, around people who aren’t on your side or who put you down. Saturn and Pluto, the slow-moving planets, representing limitation and power are currently in Capricorn. This is your friendship and group sector and Saturn and Pluto clash with the swifter-moving planets, Mercury and Venus. The dates to note are the 1st & 2nd, the 7th & 9th. 

Notice who’s helpful in your life and who’s not. Move away from a group, club or society if it doesn’t fit your needs or support your growth. Trust yourself and your own initiatives and seek out people who will back your plans. This will help you to be the best you can be.

Home Interventions

Family seem to be working alongside you nicely, on the whole. Action planet Mars is in Gemini and your home and family sector until the 16th. On the 1st, Mercury and Mars align and on the 14th, Venus and Mars are working together.

The key date, however, is the 1st because Mercury in Aries and Mars in Gemini are in mutual reception. This means they are in each other’s star sign, a helpful and supportive influence. Line up new goals with your family early in the month. Find ways to pool resources or help one another out financially.

You may find ways to earn money via your home, whether this includes having a clear out and selling unwanted items or moving in with someone to lower costs. Consider all your options here and act swiftly to take advantage of new ideas or opportunity.

Family Negotiations

Later in the month also spells good news for these key areas of your life. This is because both the Sun and Mercury enter Gemini on the 21st. Immediately, they come together creating a super conjunction.

This would be a great date to choose for a property deal or to have a family pow-wow or get-together. The Sun illuminates and enlightens and Mercury in Gemini is quick and clever. Act fast to get things moving with regard to home and family affairs. Sort out important correspondence and have those key conversations, the ones that really matter and make a difference.

Community Rules

Life close to home seems to be busy for you now and you’re wise to focus on your community. Not only are key planets in Gemini this month but Taurus is a strong star sign as well. Taurus rules your siblings and neighbours, your neighbourhood and local surroundings. There’s not a lot stopping you now from being spontaneous and initiating a conversation.

You might do this on your daily commute with someone you see all the time but haven’t yet spoken to. Or perhaps, you make an effort to find out more about the people in your life, day in, day out. Taurus’ nature is kind and caring. By creating close connections with others, you not only benefit them but it impacts on your life too.

This is the communication sector, so consider what this means for you and how or why you want to speak up, say more. You might sign up to a public speaking course, write in to your local paper or start teaching a class close to home. You may choose to help others, either personally or professionally.

The New Moon on the 4th falls in Taurus, an excellent date to sent your intentions and take the initiative. You might find that good news comes your way unexpectedly on or around this date.

Online Communications

Online communications are also-well starred and this is because of the role of Uranus in Taurus, the planet of change. Uranus rules all things new and modern and is linked to technology. Uranus is active this month on the 8th, the 18th and 22nd. These are great dates to leap into action, launch a website or online course and reach out to others.

Sometimes, Uranus can lead you down an unexpected path or take you on a diversion. Rather than leaping down a rabbit hole, ensure you’re not being lead on a wild goose chase before you set off and say Yes to a last-minute invitation, idea or innovation.

The Full Moon on the 18th does look glorious, however, as it lights up the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac. This is the time to be in the world, see more of the world and broaden your horizons. You might choose to do this physically through travel or seek out a spiritual, philosophical or intellectual path.

Unusual Love

Love too could be a reason for adventure or new experiences. Passion planet, Mars, enters Cancer and your romance sector on the 16th and the period around the Full Moon is diverse and unusual for love. Be open to whoever or whatever comes your way. It’s unlikely to be a conventional relationship. Instead, it’s a love connection or romantic encounter that takes you by surprise.

Aquarius Horoscope May 2019

 

Aquarius (21 January – 18 February)

It’s a lively start to the month for you. Communication planet, Mercury, is in Aries and your communication zone until the 6th. Mercury’s joined here by the planet of relating, Venus, until the 15th. 

Community Matters

Aries is a speedy sign, forthright and direct. It might be hard to hold back during the start of May. Instead, you’re ready to speak up and find your voice. Community matters too as both Mercury and Venus are social planets. If you’re looking to network or sell, think about how you can tap in to your local community to find contacts and connections.

Also, notice who or what is holding you back. Saturn, your traditional ruler, is currently in Capricorn and the most hidden sector of your horoscope. It’s here along with Pluto, the planet that dives in deep. 

These two planets turn your attention inwards and towards the past. They can be a gloomy, unhelpful influence if you find yourself stuck or unable to move. Take care you don’t end up listening to your inner critic if s/he turns out to be harsh and unsupportive. 

Inner Demons

This influence is useful if you harness it constructively and focus on personal development and inner transformation. In this way, you may get rid of demons or negative vibes that hold you back.

Saturn and Pluto are strongest on the 1st & 2nd, the 7th & 9th. On these dates, you may encounter opposition from other people. Choose your companions wisely and veer away from anyone who drags you down. It’s one thing to be there for other people and to help when you can. It’s another to end up feeling swamped by another’s person’s challenging emotions.

Also, you have Jupiter, the planet of positive vibes, currently in Sagittarius and your friendship and group sector. Therefore, it looks as if you have plenty of people in your life now who are good for you and boost your spirits. Line up something social and fun for the first weekend in May, as this is when Jupiter’s influence is strong.

Play Time

As May begins, the focus is on play rather than work and it’s here where you’re wise to focus your energy. Action planet, Mars, is in Gemini and your fellow air sign until the 21st. This highlights the sector of your horoscope that rules romance and love affairs, children and pregnancy, entertainment and fun.

You’re at your best when you’re involved in high jinks and good times, so make the most of this vibe and throw yourself into life.

If you’re looking for love, events could move swiftly while Mars is in Gemini and again on or close to the 21st. This is the date when both the Sun and talk planet Mercury enter Gemini and immediately make a super conjunction. It would be a great time to ask someone out on a date or sign up to an online dating site.

There’s humour and lightness in this whole combination so seek out laughter and comedy and be around people who are good for you. Children are included here, younger people, teenagers. Line up some social events, throw a party.

Group Connections

This whole planetary vibe is ideal for joining in with other people, whatever your chosen goal. This is not a month to go it alone. Instead, there are huge benefits from teaming up with others, whether in the name of a good cause or to further yourself in some way. 

If you’re a typical Aquarius, you navigate towards groups and playing your part within society, activism, politics, the world. This is where great fulfilment, purpose and meaning can be found.

Events at home and within your family are also notable this month. The inner planets make their way steadily through Taurus, the star sign at the base of your horoscope. The New Moon on the 4th falls in Taurus, an excellent date for new beginnings, catching up with family, finding someone new to live.

Uranus & The Lure of the New

Also, there’s a theme of the new when it comes to these areas of your life, thanks to your co-ruler, Uranus. In March, Uranus took up residence in Taurus and remains here for the next seven years. This can sometimes feel rootless and gets you ready for change. Other times, external events kick in and you find yourself on the move unexpectedly.

Uranus is strong this month on the 8th, 18th and 22nd. These are dates to plan accordingly, whether you’re surprising someone in your family or you check out a new home on a whim. Your living situation could change suddenly or perhaps, you choose to move into a commune or a collective living space. 

When Uranus is in the mix, anything goes and you’re more likely to enjoy an unconventional or alternative style of living.

Career Crossroads

New developments at work could be one reason why you’re thinking of or having to change where you live. Action planet Mars moves into Cancer and your work and lifestyle sector on the 16th. Plus, two days later, the Full Moon falls in Scorpio and your career sector.

This whole combination feels lively, thanks to Uranus once again. See what opportunities come your way and think outside of the box when it comes to your career and vocation. You might find yourself at a crossroads now and have more than one option ahead of you. If anything, you’re likely to choose the path which gives you more freedom and space in your life.

Capricorn Horoscope May 2019

 

Capricorn (22 December – 20 January)

Weighty personal decisions are the order of the day as May begins. It’s not easy to escape karma when your planet Saturn has just turned retrograde and is now tracking the South Node through your star sign.

Turning Inwards

This combination turns your attention inwards. Think of this as an opportunity to let go and release what no longer serves you. There might be an instant solution but, in some cases, this could be the start of four-month project or challenge.

Events at the start of May can help reveal more and give you insight and understanding into what this means for you. On the 1st & 2nd, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn clash with Mercury in Aries. On the 7th & 9th, the same two planets clash with Venus in Aries.

Aries is your home and family sector, your past and where you come from. Mercury rules communication and Venus rules close relationships. Put this all together and it looks as if you’re having to deal with past issues before you can move on. 

You might be caring for a parent or child, you may be taking a trip into the past to your family home or the place you were born. Or perhaps, you’re shedding stuff from the past that you no longer need. This could be in the shape of possessions, selling a property or letting go of past beliefs that are of no benefit.

Seek the Light

In to the midst of this key planetary activity comes Jupiter in Sagittarius, the person with the positive outlook, your leaning towards trust, hope and faith. Don’t allow negative people or negative thought hold you back. Look at new ways, new opportunities to find the light and dispel the shadow.

For some of you, this may lead you towards a spiritual path, a religion or faith. For others, you recognise the promise of freedom and lining up new wants and needs for your future path. Jupiter’s a positive influence in your life, once you identify who or what it means for you.

More Play

Also, there’s strong earth sign energy this month and this too is a clue where happiness can be found. Throughout May, the inner planets are moving steadily through Taurus and the sector of your horoscope that rules play and entertainment, children and fun, romance and good times.

The Sun is here until the 21st and the New Moon on the 4th falls in this part of your birth chart. New Moons are a symbol of new beginnings, great for setting intentions and sowing seeds. If you’re feeling bored, you want a change of scene or you’re ready to do something wild and exciting, leap into action on the New Moon.

The fortnight after the New Moon is ideal for new initiatives, being proactive and getting ahead. If you’ve fallen into the trap of work, this month’s planetary activity is an opportunity to recalibrate and find a healthier work/life balance.

Sensual Cravings

Taurus is a sensual earth sign, hands on and benefits from walks in nature, cooking, gardening, massage, sculpture and art. Find yourself a hobby and tap into your creative side. Do whatever works for you so you feel grounded and connected to the earth.

There is another factor in Taurus right now that brings something electric, different, a little bit crazy. This is the planet Uranus representing change which took up residence in Taurus in March of this year. 

Uranus is in action this month on the 8th and the 18th. At its best, Uranus is a spontaneous influence, urging you to be wild, hedonistic and enjoy yourself. If you’re a typical Capricorn, you’re not the impulsive type. Yet, this month, you could find that other people and external events are the catalyst, the trigger for surprises.

It may be your children or grandchildren who are a good influence on you. It might be a lover, a new romance that leaves you feeling giddy and playful. Or perhaps, it’s being around younger friends, unconventional and alternative types whose outlook and views on life are exciting and refreshing. Open yourself up to adventure and new experiences. Life is calling you forth.

Work Progress

Work and routine, lifestyle and health are also in the cosmic mix this month. Action planet, Mars, is in Gemini and this sector of your horoscope until the 16th. Mars is ambitious and go-getting. This adds drive to your determination to get your working life in order and to find time for healthy activities too.

On the 21st, the Sun and Mercury move into Gemini as well. In fact, on the same day, there’s a super conjunction of the Sun and Mercury, bringing a lightbulb moment, a stroke of genius. This would be an excellent date to line up an important work meeting or interview or to apply for a job.

You might receive good news or find yourself coming up with a great idea that you want to share with everyone. The key to work success and progress is to act fast in May and make things happen.

Passionate Liaisons

Love is also under the cosmic spotlight later in the month once passion planet Mars enters Cancer and your relationship sector on the 16th. Two days later, there’s an intense Full Moon in Scorpio on the 18th and a Venus/Uranus conjunction promises fun and games.

Anything goes at this Full Moon but it’s gorgeous for new love and opening your heart. Mars and Uranus unite on the 22nd keeping the feel-good vibe continuing for a while longer. There are never any guarantees where Uranus is concerned but that’s partly the nature of love. Grab it while you can.
