Jupiter On The Move

The big news this month is big planet Jupiter on the move. On the 11th, Jupiter leaves water sign Pisces and enters fire sign Aries. Jupiter is the planet of luck and opportunity. It has an expansive and boundless quality that taps into your desire to escape everyday reality and experience bliss in life.

Jupiter takes approximately one year to journey through each sign of the zodiac. Jupiter was in your fellow water sign Pisces from May to July 2021 and returned to Pisces at the end of last year.

Pisces rules all the good things in life in your horoscope, e.g. children, love affairs, creativity, entertainment and luck. There may have been the blessing of a pregnancy, a birth or new grandchild. It could have been the start of a new love affair or the birth of a creative project.

Know that Jupiter’s active as May begins. The 3rd could be a stand-out date for you when Jupiter in Pisces teams up with your co-ruler Pluto in Capricorn. Reinvent yourself and do more of what makes you happy.

This combination can be transformational and powerful. It’s about communication, community and the areas of life mentioned above. At its best, it could coincide with a miraculous event.

Plus, your traditional ruler Mars is in Pisces until the 24th. Whether you’re craving romance or feeling broody, whether you’re immersed in a creative project or bringing people together through the power of media, entertainment, poetry or song, dive deep into your passions.

Once Jupiter moves into Aries on the 11th, this highlights your work and routine, your lifestyle and your health. This is a lively combination which could give you extra get-up-and-go and increase your va-va-voom.

Over the next year, you may find the ideal job that frees up your time or fall in love with volunteering. Or, perhaps you decide to take part in activities and develop daily habits which boost your health and well-being. Aries is ruled by Mars, your traditional planet and Mars represents the physical body, strength and courage.

Take notice of the opportunities that come your way later this month. Your planet Mars joins Jupiter in Aries on the 24th. One day later on the 25th, there’s a Moon/Jupiter conjunction in Aries and on the 29th there’s a powerful Mars/Jupiter conjunction in Aries.

These are potentially lucky planetary aspects for you. Play your cards right and your work, health and routine could soon be zinging with life and vitality.

Mercury Retrograde

There is one astrological indication, however, which suggests any new habits or ideas could take time to germinate or bring results. This is the fact that communication planet Mercury turns retrograde on the 10th and remains on go slow until June 3rd.

This could throw a spanner in the works. It often means you have to be patient and wait for an opportunity to materialise. Although, Mercury retrograde is ideal for planning and doing research.

Mercury turns retrograde in Gemini and your joint finance sector. While Mercury’s in retreat, you’re wise to safeguard your finances and not be persuaded to part with your money.

It’s not a great time for major investments or signing a contract that affects you financially. If you can delay doing so until the end of May or beginning of June, hang on for a while.

This is when there are turning points a’plenty. There’s a New Moon in Gemini on the 30th, a symbol of new beginnings and Mercury turns direct a few days later on June 3rd.

Lunar Eclipse

May could turn out to be a pivotal month for you for another reason. This is because of the Lunar or Full Moon Eclipse which takes place on the 16th. It’s an important eclipse for you as it falls in your star sign Scorpio.

This eclipse is part of the eclipse cycle which began in November 2021 and completes in October 2023. As the eclipses cut across the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac, it’s personal.

You may find something comes full circle now which began on the first eclipse in this cycle on November 19, 2021. Or, perhaps something that began on April 30th when there was a Solar Eclipse in Taurus and your relationship sector.

These eclipses focus on you and your identity & your one-to-one relationships, both personal and professional. It’s here where you can expect change as the wheel of fortune kicks in.

Eclipses are shadowy but they accelerate growth. When you look back on these powerful eclipses in your life, you often see that they coincided with significant turning points.

Whether a relationship begins or ends, whether you’re involved in a period of deep transformation, either inner or outer, this is likely to be a powerful time for you, when you’re fully immersed in the process of rebirth or renewal.

Libra Horoscope May 2022

planets, Libra horoscope

Jupiter On The Move

Jupiter’s change of star sign is one of the biggest events this month. The planet of opportunity enters your opposite star sign Aries on the 11th. Aries is your relationship sector, both personal and professional.

It takes Jupiter twelve years to circuit the zodiac and spends approximately one year in each star sign. Jupiter is the free spirit, the pleasure merchant and wants to play big and soar high. As Jupiter remains in Aries for most of the time until May 2023, this is a wonderful period to get love right and do whatever it takes to bring happiness your way.

Plus, your planet Venus is leading the way. Venus represents relationships and will be in Aries from the 2nd to the 28th. Therefore, you’ll have the two best planets boosting your relationship sector.

This spells good news for a business partnership or any kind of one-to-one collaboration. It’s love, however, that feels special and you could be planning a wedding or second honeymoon. Note, however, that Jupiter rules liberation and freedom. Sometimes, this can present you with an opportunity to move away from a relationship or partnership that’s not working out.

Notice what happens on or around the 25th when there’s a Moon/Jupiter conjunction in Aries and the 29th when there’s a Mars/Jupiter conjunction in Aries. Your planet Venus leaves Aries on the 28th but passion planet Mars enters Aries on the 24th so relationships remain under the cosmic radar for some time.

Jupiter’s influence often coincides with lucky opportunities or a blessing that comes your way. Know that Jupiter is about giving as well as receiving. Reach out to other people and do your bit to help others. It’s important to note that your star sign Libra loves to be part of a double act.

Pisces Vibes

As big planet Jupiter enters Aries on the 11th, it leaves Pisces and your work and health sector. Note that Jupiter will revisit Pisces in the last two months of 2022 and there’s plenty of action in this sector of your horoscope throughout May.

Firstly, there’s a major planetary aspect between Jupiter in Pisces and Pluto in Capricorn on the 3rd. Capricorn rules your home and family. You could be setting up a business to run from home or be considering a family collaboration. Certainly, there may be an opportunity to invest in these key areas of your life – work, home, family & health.

Also, action planet Mars remains in Pisces up until the 24th. This is where there’s been a huge wave of planetary energy since mid-February. You may have been overwhelmed with work.

Alternatively, you may have become more involved with an alternative or spiritual way of life, perhaps to boost your sense of well-being. Or, your working life’s been in flow. Make the most of Pisces’ vibes throughout May.

Mercury Retrograde

Also this month, communication planet Mercury turns retrograde on the 10th and remains on go slow until June 3rd. Therefore, as much as you might want to leap into new beginnings, pace yourself from mid-month onwards.

Mercury turns retrograde in Gemini and your fellow air sign. Gemini rules travel and study in your horoscope. Therefore, you’re wise to get visas and paperwork sorted out for these areas before Mercury switches direction. You may have to be extra flexible if you’re travelling or studying.

Travel may not be straightforward during this period, even if you are boldly venturing out into the world. Double check everything, be willing to rethink and revise your options or catch up with travel you missed out on.

Use the Mercury retrograde phase to find inspiration and take time out from your normal routine. It could be a vivid time for dreams and journalling, learning and exploration. Explore philosophy, religion, spirituality, magic or mysticism. Find your muse. A lovely way to spend this Mercury retrograde phase is to go on retreat.

The New Moon in Gemini on the 30th could bring a turning point around travel or study and it’s a good time to start trying to push things through in readiness for Mercury turning direct on June 3rd.

Lunar Eclipse

One area of life that could prove contentious this month is money. This has a lot to do with the fact that it’s eclipse season. There was a Solar or New Moon eclipse on April 30th and this month, there’s a Lunar or Full Moon eclipse on the 16th.

These eclipses are part of the eclipse cycle that began in November 2021 and complete in October 2023, potentially transforming your finances and the way you handle money. They fall in the star signs Taurus and Scorpio, the financial axis of your horoscope. It’s about money, your money and the money you share with others.

Eclipses can symbolise something coming to an end so there may be a shock around money mid-month. Perhaps, someone who’s not playing by the rules or sharing equally.

Yet, eclipses are about highs and lows. And, eclipses can bring accelerated growth. Look out for a new opportunity that comes in, a situation that you can take advantage of and do well with in the future.

There is a shadowy feel to your astrology, however, so be careful that you don’t get involved in anything underhand. Check out there are no strings attached to a financial transaction or gift and ensure there’s transparency in all your money dealings.

Also, note that Mercury retreats back into Taurus on the 23rd where it turns direct on June 3rd. Ideally, put off making any major investments until then. The Taurus/Scorpio axis doesn’t only represent money, also sex, power, production, fertility and ownership.

Virgo Horoscope May 2022

Jupiter On The Move

There’s big news this month as big planet Jupiter is on the move. Jupiter leaves behind your opposite star sign Pisces and moves into fire sign Aries on the 11th. Jupiter does return to Pisces for the last two months of 2022 but then returns to Aries until May 2023.

Jupiter takes approximately one year to move through each sign of the zodiac and Jupiter has been in Pisces on and off since May 2021. This puts the spotlight on your relationships and your one-to-one’s, both personal and professional.

Jupiter’s the planet of luck and opportunity and is associated with plenty. It’s the planet linked to freedom. When you have Jupiter in your relationship sector, there may be an opportunity to remove yourself from a difficult relationship, actively choose to be single or fall head-over-heels in love. Jupiter in Pisces may have coincided with a marriage or second honeymoon.

It’s not all been smooth sailing, however, and at times you may have felt overwhelmed emotionally. You might have decided to move and follow someone you love, perhaps to the other side of the world. Or, the opposite and you’ve left an established relationship.

Passion planet Mars remains in Pisces until the 24th and until then, you may still be in the flow of an emotional wave. Or, at least be experiencing the reverberations. The 3rd may be definitive when Jupiter aligns with Pluto in Capricorn. This links love and children, relationships and commitment in your life.

The 18th is also key when Mars teams up with Neptune, the planet of fantasy, dreams and the imagination. Themes of surrender or losing yourself could be foreground once again.

The houses of the horoscope follow on from each other so even though Jupiter leaves Pisces and enters Aries this month, the focus remains on other people. In particular, joint finances and shared resources.

For example, this could be the settling-down period, when you create a joint bank account and learn to live alongside your partner day to day. Aries represents the sector of your horoscope that’s linked to sex and intimacy. It may be a time when you’re thinking about these key issues and what you want when it comes to love.

This doesn’t only apply to a personal relationship. For example, you may be ready to start a business partnership or work alongside another person in a specific role in your life, e.g. lawyer, an agent, a personal trainer, a therapist, a coach.

When Jupiter is in Aries, it’s the perfect time to get expert advice, especially when it comes to finances or legal matters. Jupiter’s a global planet so there are no restrictions and you can expand your circle of expertise.

You may discover more about what Jupiter in Aries will bring on the 20th, 23rd, 25th & 29th when Jupiter in Aries connects with the inner planets.

There could be a celebration, a bonus or gift or an opportunity to boost your cash flow, your investments or clear a debt. The key is to work alongside other people and balance a competitive stance with a collaborative spirit.

Mercury Retrograde

It is, however, important to note that your ruling planet Mercury turns retrograde on the 10th, the day before Jupiter enters Aries on the 11th. Mercury remains on go slow until June 3rd. Therefore, it’s important to view this period as the planning stage and not try to rush ahead.

Even if new opportunities arise, it’s not the best time to make a major decision while Mercury’s on go slow. This is because information is sometimes withheld or the truth isn’t forthcoming. Ideally, wait until the end of May or beginning of June before accepting an offer or finalising a job or career opportunity.

This is because Mercury turns retrograde in Gemini and your career and vocation sector. You may have to wait until the New Moon in Gemini on the 30th before you can move things forward.

Mercury retrograde is good for retracing your steps or going over old ground. It flags up a theme of reconnecting or reworking your contacts or networks. You might get back in touch with an old boss or try again with an opportunity that didn’t come off first time around.

Lunar Eclipse

Travel and study are going to remain important to you now and over the next eighteen months. These areas are ripe for change because of the current eclipse cycle highlighting the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac. This eclipse cycle began in November 2021 and completes in October 2023.

On April 30th, there was a Solar or New Moon Eclipse in Taurus and this month there’s a Lunar or Full Moon Eclipse in Scorpio which falls on the 16th. You could receive important news about a course or trip on or around this date.

Yet, eclipse symbolism often hints that something needs to end or be given up before you can embrace a new chapter. Sometimes, eclipses coincide with an event being postponed or cancelled.

Either way, know that this is a shadowy time in the month. The best advice this month is to go with the flow and dance through life, even if it means taking a step back before you can move forwards. And, note that the turning points could come thick and fast right at the end of May and beginning of June.

Leo Horoscope May 2022

eclipse, Leo horoscope

Jupiter Enters Aries

There’s a major planetary shift in the heavens this month and it’s great news for you. This involves Jupiter, the planet of opportunity, which enters your fellow fire sign of Aries on the 11th. Jupiter remains here for most of the time until May 2023. At its best, this can feel like the equivalent of one long beach party.

Jupiter takes approximately one year to journey through each sign of the zodiac so the last time Jupiter was in Aries was 12 years ago. Aries is the star sign that rules the bigger picture sector of your horoscope. Therefore, this offers you an opportunity to start a new adventure and make the most of life.

Jupiter rules travel, study, philosophy, spirituality, any activity that expands your horizons and broadens your experience of life. There’s a feel-good factor to Jupiter in Aries which boosts your desire to be bold or take a leap of faith. Make fun and joy high priorities over the next year. Think of work as play, discover your passion and enjoy what you do in life.

If you want to travel abroad or live in another country, if you want to take a sabbatical from work and explore a new direction, it starts with believing and knowing that anything’s possible. Set your intentions as Jupiter’s year of exploration begins and let the universe hear your voice.

This could be a wonderful opportunity to think globally, expand your network and reach out to other people in different countries and cultures. You may want to see the world or save the world as Jupiter is closely linked to philanthropy and charitable actions. Jupiter rules publishing, the Law, truth and humanity. Stake your claim and begin your voyage of discovery.

The key dates this month to embrace this new energy are the 23rd when there’s a Sun/Jupiter sextile aspect, the 25th when there’s a Moon/Jupiter conjunction in Aries and the 29th when there’s a Mars/Jupiter conjunction in Aries.

Be open to new opportunities, say yes to new experiences and do something adventurous on or around the end of the month. This feels lucky for you and the events that take place could help signpost your way forward in the year ahead.

Mercury Retrograde

Note, however, that communication planet Mercury turns retrograde on the 10th and remains on go slow until June 3rd. Therefore, think of this as the planning stage, do your research and find out more about travel and study options or what next.

Mercury turns retrograde in Gemini ruling your friends and group activities, your networks and alliances. It’s here where you’re wise to take the pace slow. Or, perhaps communication breaks down.

Mercury retrograde can be a time of misunderstandings or untruths. Therefore, don’t believe everything you hear and don’t make assumptions based on what you read.

It is a good time to reconnect with friends from your past and you may feel unusually nostalgic or sentimental. This might include getting back in touch with someone you were at school with or someone you met travelling.

The 20th-23rd could be significant in this respect. Synchronicity could play its part, so listen carefully for signs or messages from the universe.

Eclipse Power

This is also eclipse season and a Full Moon or Lunar Eclipse on the 16th follows on from a New Moon or Solar Eclipse on April 30th. This eclipse cycle began in November 2021 and continues until October 2023. It’s a powerful eclipse cycle for you as it cuts across the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac.

These two star signs fall at the peak and base of your horoscope. Taurus rules your career and vocation, your status and reputation, your future and where you’re heading. Whereas, Scorpio represents your home and family, your past, your legacy and where you come from.

The Lunar Eclipse on the 16th highlights these key areas of your life. It’s shining a light on your current situation, exposing where change is required. Sometimes during eclipses, the unexpected happens acting as the trigger for change.

You may feel pulled in different directions during the Lunar Eclipse. You might find it a challenge to juggle home and work. Or, you feel unsure where your priorities lie or what to do next. Traditionally, you’re wise to wait a few days after an eclipse before taking action.

This is especially important this time around because retrograde Mercury retreats back into Taurus and your career sector on the 23rd. You may have to wait until early June to get the go-ahead for a work-related matter. Alternatively, you might have to rethink your options moving forwards.

Notice where you’re being called forth and what home means to you. If you’re not happy with where you live or a family issue arises, this may be more noticeable during the Full Moon phase.

Also, note that there’s a major Jupiter-Pluto planetary aspect on the 3rd that links work and money in your horoscope. Therefore, this would be a good date to finalise a deal or sign a contract before both the eclipse and Mercury retrograde kick in.

Money matters remain important with action planet Mars in Pisces and your joint finance sector up until the 24th. Keep close tabs on money and aim to get your books balanced and your finances in order before the middle of the month.

Cancer Horoscope May 2022

eclipse, Cancer horoscope

Jupiter Enters Aries

The big news this month involves big planet Jupiter on the move. Jupiter is the planet of luck and opportunity and enters Aries and your career and vocation sector on the 11th. The planet of relating Venus leads the way on the 2nd. Therefore, by mid-month, you’ll have the two best planets in Aries boosting your ambitions.

Jupiter takes approximately one year to journey through each sign of the zodiac and remains in Aries for most of the time until May 2023. Here’s your chance to play big, fly high and expand your horizons. Jupiter not only represents opportunity, growth and expansion but the free spirit, the entrepreneur. Jupiter in Aries wants you to be big and bold in life.

Plus, Jupiter connects you with the world as it’s the global planet. Reach out to other people and expand your career. Plan work abroad or take a sabbatical to study something you’ve always dreamed about. Leave the 9-to-5 and go freelance or set up your own business. It’s your choice but the opportunity is there in the coming year, whatever your personal vision.

If you’re currently on the verge of seeking promotion or looking for a new job the last few days of the month look promising. On the 24th, action planet Mars joins Jupiter in Aries, on the 25th there’s a Moon/Jupiter conjunction in Aries and on the 29th, there’s an energising Mars/Jupiter conjunction in Aries. It’s an ideal time to step up your game.

Think back twelve years ago when Jupiter was last in this sector of your horoscope – 2010/11. Think about what was happening and how to use this powerful Jupiter transit to the best of your ability.

Mercury Retrograde

There is one proviso, however, and this is the fact that communication planet Mercury turns retrograde on the 10th, the day before Jupiter enters Aries. Mercury remains on go slow until June 3rd. Therefore, you may find that things don’t fall into your lap straightaway and it’s important to see this month’s astrology as the planning phase.

When planets are retrograde, it can feel like a stop-start time so pace yourself accordingly. Think of this as a time of preparation when you’re doing the groundwork for your next steps.

Mercury turns retrograde in Gemini and the most hidden sector of your horoscope. Try not to wear yourself out, especially if you’re dealing with a personal issue. This could flag up a secret enemy or someone working against you.

It’s not the time to make a major decision either. Instead, shift things around and change your routine so you get a chance to look at your life from a new perspective. By doing so, you may be able to revise a personal issue or rethink your work or lifestyle.

Retrograde Mercury teams up with Jupiter in Aries and your career and vocation sector on the 20th. This suggests that you may be mulling over your future path, your career, your vocation or your long-term goals.

Gemini rules rest and retreat in your horoscope, so create more space and quiet time for yourself. Mercury retrograde offers an opportunity to take time out and be by yourself. Listen to your instincts and slow down so you can hear your inner voice.

Lunar Eclipse

Also this month, there’s the second of two eclipses taking place cutting across the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac. There was a Solar or New Moon eclipse on April 30th and this month, there’s a Lunar or Full Moon eclipse on the 16th. Eclipses are powerful for you because they involve the relationship between the Sun, Moon & Earth. And, the Moon is your ruler in astrology.

These two eclipses are part of the eclipse cycle that began in November 2021 and completes in October 2023. This eclipse cycle highlights the social axis of your horoscope. It’s about your friends and group activities, your involvement with society, politics, community or humanitarian goals.

Also, it’s about the things you give birth to, i.e. your creative urges. This includes your children, lovers, creative projects, your skills, talents and gifts. This eclipse is highlighting how you express yourself out in the world. These areas of your life may be shifting or changing as new lessons or learnings emerge.

Full Moons are notoriously emotional and an eclipsed Full Moon can be a time of drama when unexpected events kick in. It’s wise not to act on the date of the eclipse but wait and see what occurs. Once the shadow lifts, a new landscape can be revealed. Then, you can decide where you need to step in or take action.

However, be patient as Mercury is also hidden until early June. The New Moon in Gemini on the 30th could be a significant turning point. Read between the lines and use the New Moon energy to initiate an important conversation. Then, you can start to push things through ready for Mercury turning direct on June 3rd.

Note that Mercury moves back into Taurus on the 23rd and your friendship sector. If there’s a dispute or issue around a friend or group activity, take your time. You’ll be more effective in getting to the bottom of things if you wait until the end of the month.

Love & Relationships

Finally, when it comes to love and relationships, Jupiter is once again in pole position for you. On the 3rd, Jupiter in Pisces teams up with Pluto in Capricorn and your relationship sector. This combination can feel transformative.

It would be an ideal month to take a holiday with your partner or go abroad to meet someone you love. Life is calling you forth and out into the world this month in more ways than one.

Gemini Horoscope May 2022

eclipse, Gemini horoscope

Jupiter On the Move

The big news this month is big planet Jupiter on the move. On the 11th, Jupiter leaves Pisces, the star sign at the peak of your horoscope, which represents your career and vocation, your status and reputation.

Jupiter takes approximately one year to move through each sign of the zodiac and has been in Pisces from May to July 2021 and from December 2021 up until now. Jupiter will return to Pisces in the last two months of 2022.

At its best, Jupiter brings new opportunities, success and a wealth of work. You may have found a way to break free from the daily grind and follow your vocation over the past year. Or, this may have brought a sabbatical from work or a chance to work abroad as Jupiter is the planet of liberation and freedom. Jupiter benefits you most when you play big in life and grab new opportunities.

As the month begins, there’s a supportive planet aspect between Jupiter in Pisces and Pluto in Capricorn on the 3rd. This links work and money for you and it’s a good time to pay off debt or boost your savings or investments.

Plus, action planet Mars is in Pisces at the peak of your horoscope until the 24th. Keep your eye on the ball regarding your career and future path and make the most of some stunning astrology.

Jupiter’s move into Aries from the 11th feels bright and breezy for you and Jupiter remains in this fire sign until the end of October. Then, Jupiter returns to Aries at the end of December for another five months. Aries rules friends, groups, social concerns and your wider network in your horoscope.

This is about finding people of like minds and making sure that your social life is not only fun but supportive too. Bring new friends into your life by enjoying new activities and make an effort to catch up with old friends. Jupiter will create the opportunities, perhaps through a friend’s wedding, anniversary or school reunion. All you need to do is say yes.

If you have built up a successful business while Jupiter’s been in Pisces or your career’s back on track, here’s your chance to take what you do out into the wider world and get people on board who can help you. Jupiter in Aries is about gathering people around you, a team or people of like minds who can work with you and make life easier, more enjoyable and fun.

Key dates are the 24th/25th when Mars enters Aries and there’s a lucky Moon/Jupiter conjunction. Being one of the air signs, you are one of the most social signs of the zodiac. If you’ve been trying to do too much on your own, May’s stars are urging you to reach out and reconnect.

Mercury Retrograde

It is important to note, however, that your ruling planet Mercury turns retrograde in your star sign on the 10th, the day before Jupiter enters Aries. Mercury’s the planet of communication and remains on go slow until June 3rd.

This flags up a time for renegotiations or trying again where you failed in the past. Mercury retrograde phases are ideal for the re-words, i.e. review or revise your plans or current situation, retreat and reflect.

This is especially important for you as it feels like a personal Mercury retrograde phase. Mercury switches direction in your star sign Gemini and retreats back into Taurus and the most personal and inner sector of your horoscope on the 23rd.

This is often a time when your inner life is busier than your outer life, for whatever reason. You may have a lot to think about or you need to take care of your mind, body and soul. If you’re more than ready to take a step back or take time off work, it would be an ideal way to spend this Mercury retrograde phase.

The most interesting period for Mercury retrograde is from the 20th to the 25th. Listen out for insights and synchronicities. This is about choosing your allies wisely. Again, this is about getting the right people on your side. You may be changing advisers or something similar.

Lunar Eclipse

Also this month, there’s a second eclipse taking place cutting across the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac. This is a Lunar or Full Moon Eclipse on the 16th that follows on from the Solar or New Moon Eclipse on April 30th.

Your dreams could be off the radar on or around this Full Moon/eclipse period. Try not to let your emotions carry you away and know what anchors you.

This axis is about work and health, your everyday lifestyle and routine, also service to others, whether it’s your religion or a caring profession. It’s here where you’re wise to be curious and notice where life’s calling you or where there’s a wake-up call.

Sometimes, eclipse events arrive with a bang as the unexpected kicks in. Other times, you notice sign-posts or synchronicities leading you down a new path. Take good care of yourself during the middle of the month and prioritise habits that support you.

New Moon Gemini

The turning points come thick and fast for you at the end of May and beginning of June. There’s a powerful and enthusiastic Mars-Jupiter conjunction on the 29th in Aries and your friendship sector. Notice who steps up for you.

Then, on the 30th, there’s a New Moon, a symbol of new beginnings in your star sign Gemini. This is an ideal time to set the wheel of fortune in motion and start pushing through your new ideas and plans. It will only be a few days later that your planet Mercury is also back up to speed on June 3rd. Get ready for those green lights switching on.

Taurus Horoscope May 2022

Jupiter On the Move

The big news this month is planet Jupiter on the move leaving water sign Pisces and entering fire sign Aries on the 11th. Jupiter takes approximately one year to journey through each sign of the zodiac and has been in Pisces since the end of last year 2021. Pisces is the star sign which rules friends, groups, social concerns and your wider network in your horoscope.

At its best, Jupiter creates luck and opportunity. Your friends may have been fortunate for you. Perhaps, you’ve joined a new group or club that’s expanded your horizons or you’ve been involved with a charity, humanitarian or environmental organisation.

Jupiter will be back in Pisces for the last two months of this year. Before it leaves this part of your horoscope mid-May, consider where you may be ready to move on.

Alternatively, you may want to inject some fresh energy or enthusiasm into your group ventures. There’s a Jupiter-Pluto aspect on the 3rd which could prove pivotal. You might be drawing up travel or study plans with a friend or new group of people.

This fits with action planet Mars moving through Pisces where it remains until the 24th. Mars is the planet of action and energy. Ensure you have people in your life who arouse your imagination and inspire your dreams. Move away from drama towards creativity or a spiritual path.

Jupiter’s move into Aries turns your attention to the most hidden sector of your horoscope. And, your planet Venus is leading the way. Venus enters Aries on the 2nd where she remains until the 28th.

This is your opportunity to focus on your inner world, develop your spirituality, your trust and faith in life and the universe. You may see more clearly the connection between mind, body and spirit. You could benefit by going on retreat or allowing more silence and solitude into your life. Quiet times may be nourishing and nurturing for you.

There may be a sense of urgency about inner work too once Mars joins Jupiter in Aries on the 24th. This could be a peak time in the month for taking action, whether this is to do with self-care or caring for others.

Mercury Retrograde

There’s another indicator that this month may be about taking a step back. This is because communication planet Mercury turns retrograde on the 10th, the day before Jupiter changes star sign on the 11th.

Mercury retreats back into your star sign Taurus on the 23rd and will be on go slow until June 3rd. Therefore, you might not be able to move forwards as quickly as you would like. You may have to take time out from your usual routine. Or, perhaps you’re choosing to study or spending time doing research.

When planets are in Aries and Mercury’s on go slow in your star sign, this is about preparation for you and the work you do behind the scenes. It’s your cue to slow down, do things differently and look at life from a fresh perspective.

When a planet’s retrograde, it turns your attention inwards. It can be a time of inner change and preparation ready for the next cycle or wave of activity.

If you can take time out while Mercury is in retreat, make it happen. You may have a personal issue you want or need to mull over and Mercury retrograde is the ideal time to review, revise, rethink.

Things can go missing while Mercury’s on go slow, there can be misunderstandings or mis-truths. Keep an open mind and question everything.

Mercury turns retrograde in Gemini on the 10th so the theme of money and past connections runs deep. You may be aware of your legacy, either that which is passed to you or what you pass on to future generations.

Don’t act impulsively where money’s concerned when Mercury’s on go slow. If possible, delay any major transactions, be patient and bide your time. A payment could be delayed while Mercury’s in retreat, so plan accordingly and trust your intuition.

The turning point may come after the New Moon in Gemini on the 30th. This could be the start of the wheel of fortune turning in your favour as Mercury gets ready to switch direction early June. There might be support from your past, a benefactor or someone who stands up for you or defends your rights.

Lunar Eclipse

The other big news this month is the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on the 16th. Things are shifting and changing a lot during mid-May and the theme is what’s hidden.

This Lunar Eclipse cuts across the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac, a personal axis for you. It’s about your inner transformation, love & relationships. Like Mercury retrograde, there’s a secretive or private theme during eclipses. You may not be sure about your feelings. Alternatively, someone could disappear on you or do something you weren’t expecting. And, this adds to the drama and emotion of the Full Moon period.

This eclipse is part of the Taurus/Scorpio eclipse cycle that began in November 2021 and lasts until October 2023. Wherever the eclipses fall in your horoscope, this is where growth is accelerated and synchronicities take place as the wheel of fortune kicks in.

Eclipses are notoriously shadowy, so be wary who you trust. Wait and see what emerges a few days after the eclipse and keep your cards close to your chest. You may be able to take advantage of a triangle situation if someone takes a back step. This could be in your personal or professional life.
