Jupiter works in synchronous ways so it’s important that you put yourself in its path. Say yes to a new opportunity that opens up as Jupiter begins its new journey through a new star sign.
There is a proviso, however, as any journey is likely to take you on an unexpected detour from mid-month onwards. This is because of what’s happening with the planet of communication Mercury. The day before Jupiter enters Aries, Mercury turns retrograde on the 10th and remains on go slow until June 3rd.

Talk planet Mercury turns retrograde in Gemini and a practical sector of your horoscope. This indicates that you’re wise to renegotiate work matters once Mercury is in retreat. Alternatively, crack on with a job application or health appointment before Mercury switches direction on the 10th.
Then, once Mercury’s in retreat, you’re wise to follow things up and double-check important correspondence, appointments or meetings.
What Mercury retrograde is good for is going with the flow and adopting a slower pace. Sometimes, there’s a theme of second chances and trying again if things didn’t work out in the past, especially linked to your work, your lifestyle or health.
You could go back to an old job and it’s an excellent time to rework and revise your plans. Be kind to yourself too and do whatever’s necessary to lower your stress levels. There may be a chance to work from home or get help from family between the 20th to the 23rd.
The Sun is in Taurus until the 21st. Taurus represents the sector of your horoscope that’s about play, fun and where you find enjoyment in life. This is where the eclipses are kicking in this month.
There was a Solar or New Moon eclipse in Taurus on April 30th and this month there’s a Lunar or Full Moon eclipse on the 16th cutting across the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac.
This is the social sector of your horoscope linked to friends and group activities, society & politics, also children, creativity & lovers. This is part of an eclipse cycle that began in November 2021 and completes in October 2023.
Eclipses have a theme of bringing what’s hidden to light. Sometimes, they coincide with the unexpected and a Lunar Eclipse can be emotional or dramatic.
You could have a major fall-out with someone close over money. Or, feel outraged about what’s happening within the world. It might be personal, it might be linked to the collective.
Either way, know that this is a powerful eclipse and you may feel torn between opposing needs, wants or views. Dig deep during eclipse season and be there for the ones you love.
