Jupiter On The Move

May could turn out to be a pivotal month for you because of what’s happening with your ruling planet Jupiter. On the 11th, Jupiter leaves your star sign Pisces where it’s been on and off since May 2021.

Jupiter is the planet of luck and opportunity, also the planet of freedom. At its best, Jupiter is a breath of fresh air and when it’s in your star sign, you often feel more able to chase your dreams and go after whatever makes you happy.

Yet, the recent Jupiter-Neptune conjunction in Pisces has been a potential deluge of Pisces’ energy which may have felt overwhelming emotionally. This combination often means that you have to surrender to life and go wherever it leads you.

Before Jupiter leaves Pisces this month, there’s a major planetary aspect on the 3rd between Jupiter in Pisces and Pluto in Capricorn and your friendship and group sector. This would be an ideal time to seek support or get together with friends to pursue a personal goal. Don’t go it alone as the month begins.

Plus, you have action planet Mars in your star sign until the 24th. Mars is go-getting and passionate, feisty and furious. In your personal sector, this is about your goals and aims, your physical body and well-being.

You may run into competitive situations more than usual this month or find yourself at odds with others. Notice whether you need an outlet for your anger and emotions. Get physical or dive deep into a hobby or personal activity you can lose yourself in.

Like all the other personal planets, Mars connects with your co-ruler Neptune on the 18th. Neptune’s the artist and poet, the musician and muse. It’s where you find inspiration in life. It may be important that you have your escape, your thing that’s personal to you. The Mars/Neptune alliance could be creative or spiritual.

Expansive Jupiter enters Aries on the 11th where it remains on and off until May 2023. Jupiter transits can be powerful if you harness the planet of opportunity well. Aries rules money in your horoscope – finances, assets and possessions and all that you value highly in life.

Over the course of the next year, you could come across an opportunity to boost your finances, to lead a wealthier or more abundant lifestyle. The flow of money and self-worth could pick up speed considerably.

Keep a close eye on what happens around the 25th when there’s a Moon/Jupiter conjunction in Aries and the 29th, when there’s a Mars/Jupiter conjunction in Aries, both positive factors for money, drive and ambition. It’s here where you’re wise to put more energy and be more competitive moving forwards.

Mercury Retrograde

Do note, however, that Mercury is retrograde this month from the 10th until June 3rd. Mercury is one of the planets linked to trade and the stock markets. Therefore, this isn’t the time to rush into new financial developments or expect things to fall into your lap overnight.

Instead, know that when Mercury’s on go slow, it’s important to pace yourself and wait patiently. Do your research as a better deal or opportunity may come your way once Mercury turns direct.

Retrograde Mercury teams up with lucky Jupiter on the 20th so notice what happens on or around this date. This is ideal for planning and creating a strategy. Mercury and Jupiter together often signify brilliant ideas.

Mercury turns retrograde in Gemini, the star sign representing home & family in your horoscope. There may be a theme of going back to the past or the past returning to you.

One of the best ways to use the Mercury retrograde phase is to take a step back and look at life differently. It’s a positive time to reconnect with people, especially loved ones. You may be busy with your family tree or trying to find someone you lost touch with. Perhaps, a family reunion or a chance to heal a rift.

There may be another reason why home or family are significant, linked to money or self-worth. You may be considering ways to make money via your home or possessions or be looking at ways to swap or trade skills. You could be helping out a family member financially. Alternatively, you may need to turn to someone close for financial support.

The turning point comes on the 30th when there’s a New Moon in Gemini, a symbol of new beginnings. This is the start of a period of green lights as communication planet Mercury switches to direct motion a few days later on June 3rd.

Lunar Eclipse

Also this month, it’s eclipse season. On April 30th, there was a Solar or New Moon eclipse and this month there’s a Lunar or Full Moon Eclipse on the 16th. These eclipses are part of an eclipse cycle that began in November 2021 and completes in October 2023 cutting across the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac.

This is the educational sector of your horoscope. It’s about schools and teaching, learning and knowledge. Taurus rules siblings, neighbours and your local community. Whereas, Scorpio rules travel & foreign connections.

Eclipses, like Mercury retrograde, have a hidden theme. Therefore, you may have changes forced upon you because of external events. A course could be postponed or cancelled, a trip may have to be rescheduled. You might be going back to school as a teacher or be thinking about how to move your skills or your business online.

The exact date of the eclipse is a good time to pause and reassess. Wait and see what emerges when the light returns, where you can take advantage and what you may need to release or let go of.

Some hopes or dreams may have to be shelved or put back in the drawer. There may be a difference of opinion, beliefs or values that affects you profoundly. Use the eclipse energy to take a deep dive into what’s important to you so you emerge from the dark into the light bringing powerful insights with you.

Aquarius Horoscope May 2022

eclipse, Aquarius horoscope

Jupiter On The Move

The big news this month is the planet of luck and opportunity Jupiter on the move. Jupiter takes approximately one year to move through each star sign of the zodiac. On the 11th, Jupiter leaves water sign Pisces and enters Aries where it remains for most of the time until May 2023. Jupiter will dip back into Pisces in the last two months of 2022.

This is an important shift in the heavens which feels significant for you. Jupiter has been in Pisces ruling money and your personal finances on and off since May 2021. Sometimes, this indicates a flow regarding money when wealth or abundance passes through your hands.

Pisces is a water sign, however, so finances and emotions are closely linked. You may have experienced issues with money that’s been shared, either with an ex, a business partner or a financial institution. You may have been involved with legal or emotional wrangles concerning an inheritance, debt or investment. You may have found that what you value highly has changed over the last year.

Before Jupiter leaves Pisces, it teams up with Pluto in Capricorn on the 3rd. Pluto represents loss and endings. Yet, together Jupiter and Pluto can represent big money or power.

This could play out in different ways. For example, you might say goodbye to a debt or choose to cut your losses and move on. Or, perhaps the seeds you’ve sown over the past year materialise and you can start to make powerful financial choices.

Note that action planet Mars remains in Pisces until the 24th so this is where to focus your energy and drive. Don’t give up on a financial deal or important money matter that began earlier this year. This is even more important if it means a lot to you emotionally.

Jupiter’s move into Aries on the 11th breathes fresh air into your life as Aries rules communication. This is ideal for all forms of communication, talking, gathering and sharing ideas and information, making new friends and learning new skills.

A new role as a voice-over artist, a new job as a journalist, a new role as a blogger? Use your voice to the best of your ability because this is the start of something big. Key dates are the 20th, 23rd, 25th & 29th when lucky Jupiter’s in action.

Aries rules siblings and neighbours, your local community too. It’s an ideal time to start trading and play an active role within your neighbourhood.

Mercury Retrograde

It is important to note, however, that communication planet Mercury turns retrograde on the 10th, the day before Jupiter moves into your communication sector. Mercury then remains on go slow until June 3rd.

Therefore, don’t run before you can walk. Perhaps, you need to be aware that learning a new skill takes time. Know that with Mercury in retreat, you may have to go backwards before you can go forwards. Or, you find it hard to get hold of the right person and have to play a waiting game.

What Mercury retrograde is good for is learning and research, reviewing and revising your plans. An ideal way of spending the Mercury retrograde phase is to retreat and wind down so you can find a new perspective. Some plans may unravel during the Mercury retrograde phase but be flexible and give other people the benefit of the doubt.

You could reconnect with someone from your past. A childhood sweetheart or someone who played a key role in your upbringing. It’s a cosmic reminder to honour the past and to be patient with your future plans.

If there is a love decision to make this month, wait until the New Moon in Gemini on the 30th. This is the start of a run of green lights flicking back on over the following few days. It’s the best time to reopen the lines of communication.

Lunar Eclipse

Also this month, 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. This eclipse cycle began in November 2021 and continues until October 2023.

It’s an important eclipse cycle for you as it cuts across the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac and the foundations of your horoscope. Sometimes, eclipses coincide with significant change. This may be about your home and family or your career and vocation. It’s about your past and where you come from and your future and where you’re heading.

Someone may be on the move during the eclipse, leaving home or transitioning to a new domestic situation. It may be a turning point for your career or future direction and eclipses often coincide with unexpected events.

There could be a clear divide between your home life and your ambition. You may have to forego your career or ambition to put family first. Or, perhaps you feel torn about leaving your family to pursue your own path.

As your ruling planet Saturn is square to this eclipse, whatever’s taking place could feel like a tough decision. Notice too, what happens on or around the 5th when the Sun in Taurus teams up with your co-ruler Uranus.

Once again, the theme of change is kicking in for you and at times you’re bound to feel frustrated or pulled between responsibility or freedom.

Capricorn Horoscope May 2022

eclipse, Capricorn horoscope

Jupiter On The Move

The big news this month is the planet of luck and opportunity Jupiter changing star sign. Jupiter takes approximately one year to move through each sign of the zodiac.

Since May 2021, Jupiter has been in Pisces on and off, the star sign which rules communication in your horoscope. If you’ve made significant progress with the way you communicate on- or off-line, you’ve been in tune with Jupiter’s expansive nature.

Jupiter rules travel and education too and it’s about reaching out on a global level, gathering new information and learning from other people. Jupiter leaves Pisces this month on the 11th but, before it does so, it makes a major planetary aspect to Pluto in your star sign Capricorn on the 3rd.

You might be able to take advantage of what you’ve discovered or found out over the past year. Or, perhaps you’re ready to present, share or communicate your ideas with others.

This combination of Jupiter & Pluto could be transformative on a personal level or help you step up and take on a more powerful role or position. Be an influencer and help transform other peoples’ lives.

Jupiter’s move into Aries on the 11th turns the spotlight towards your home and family, your past and your roots. Jupiter remains in this sector of your horoscope until May 2023, except for a short break in the last two months of 2022.

When Jupiter’s in Aries, this is a classic time to move home or expand where you live. With Jupiter’s foreign theme, you may be planning a move abroad or a get-together with family who live around the world or in different parts of the country.

A big family celebration is well-starred with Jupiter in Aries and it’s the perfect time to catch up with people from your past, to remember your roots and where you come from. It could be a time when you’re expanding your family whether this involves your children, an adoption, the addition of a step family or living within a community. Alternatively, you’re opening your doors to people in need.

There are a couple of dates this month which offer you a glimpse into what this new planetary transit might mean for you. There’s a Moon/Jupiter conjunction in Aries on the 25th followed by a powerfully energetic Mars/Jupiter conjunction on the 29th. These dates could coincide with a big event as you put extra energy and drive into home and family affairs.

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.

Mercury Retrograde

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.

Therefore, take your time and don’t expect everything to fall into your lap overnight. The best way to use Mercury retrograde is to turn inwards and heed the lessons that Mercury brings.

You may have to be extra patient around work, your children or your health. Or, perhaps, someone goes quiet on you and you’re playing a waiting game.

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.

Lunar Eclipse

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.

Sagittarius Horoscope May 2022

Jupiter Joy

There’s a major reason to be happy in the month ahead as fire sign energy begins to dominate with a key planet changing star sign. Being a Sagittarius, you are one of the three fire signs and when planets are in your element, there’s a natural flow in your astrology.

Even bigger news for you is the fact that it’s your ruling planet Jupiter on the move. Jupiter is the planet of joy, luck and good fortune and it’s where you find happiness, expansion and growth.

Jupiter remains in each star sign for approximately one year. Since May 2021, Jupiter has spent a considerable amount of time in Pisces, the star sign ruling your home and family.

You may have moved home or changed your living conditions over the last twelve months. Family may have been your number one focus and your protective instincts have been high.

Trying to find a healthy balance between work and home life and dealing with extra challenges won’t always have been easy, however, either for you or your loved ones. At times, your emotions may have been overwhelming.

Jupiter does make one important planetary aspect as it completes its current journey through Pisces – n.b. that Jupiter returns to Pisces for the last two months of this year.

This month on the 3rd, there’s a significant connection between Jupiter in Pisces and Pluto in Capricorn and your money sector. You may be investing in property on or around this date or be making a significant payment to someone in your family. It’s a good time to tie up money matters, invest in your future security and keep your eye on your long-term financial goals.

Also, action planet Mars remains in Pisces until the 24th so stay on track with your home and family-related goals and try not to lose yourself or get diverted from what’s really important. This may be significant on or around the 18th which could be an unusually sentimental or nostalgic time.

On the 11th, Jupiter enters your fellow fire sign Aries and this could feel like a breath of fresh air. The focus turns to you and what you want out of life rather than relying on others or having to think of other people before yourself.

Aries rules creativity, love affairs, entertainment, fun and children in your horoscope. It’s the playful sector and it’s about doing what you love.

It’s an ideal time to embrace your passion and desire. Plan some fun events with friends and family and make entertainment, laughter and socialising high priority. Focus on the positives in your life and steer away from negative energy.

If you’re looking for love or you simply want to have a good time, the following dates leap out: the 20th & 23rd, the 25th & 29th.

Jupiter is the planet of luck so trust your luck and have a flutter, enter a competition or buy a raffle ticket when you’re out and about. There is a popular saying in the UK, ‘you have to be in to win’ and this can apply to life as well as the lottery, e.g. if you want to meet someone new, join a dating agency or let your friends know you’re keen for an introduction. This will serve you better than sitting home alone waiting for the phone to ring.

Same goes if you’ve always wanted to write a book, paint a portrait or play a musical instrument. While Jupiter’s in Aries, revisit your childhood dreams. Hang out with children too and let their delight and joy in life rub off on you.

Jupiter’s move into Aries isn’t going to sort out all the nitty-gritty boring stuff of life but it is going to move play and pleasure high up your life barometer and that’s got to be a good thing. Plus, with love planet Venus in Aries from the 2nd to the 28th, it’s an excellent month for romance and love affairs.

Mercury Retrograde

There is a proviso, however, because communication planet Mercury turns retrograde in Gemini and your relationship sector on the 10th and remains on go slow until June 3rd. Therefore, don’t expect everything to fall into your lap straightaway. Be patient and trust that good things come to those who wait.

Sometimes, other people go quiet on you while Mercury’s in retreat in your relationship sector. You may change your mind about love or a business partnership and you may have to follow rather than lead.

Mercury retrograde can flag up a theme of misunderstandings, so it’s a good idea to take a step back and take the pace slow in your relationships.

Don’t feel you have to make any big decisions during the retrograde phase. Instead, use this time to review your situation and think things through rather than leap into action. When it comes to other people, both personally & professionally, let things be rather than try and sort things out immediately.

The turning point could be the New Moon in Gemini on the 30th, a symbol of new beginnings. This takes place a few days before Mercury turns direct on June 3rd.

This is when you’re wise to reopen the lines of communication and start to make up your mind when it comes to love, passion and relationships.

Lunar Eclipse

Also this month, it’s eclipse season. A new eclipse cycle began in November 2021 cutting across the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac. It continues until October 2023.

On April 30th, there was a Solar or New Moon eclipse in Taurus and this month, there’sa Lunar or Full Moon Eclipse in Scorpio on the 16th.

For you, this is about your work and health and being of service to others. These are the key areas under the eclipse spotlight. Sometimes during an eclipse, an unexpected event signifies the need for change. There can be a theme of endings before a new beginning. And, with a Full Moon eclipse, you may find yourself caught up in a competitive situation.

You might find that things change fast this month and it could be tricky trying to keep up with everything shifting, perhaps on a daily basis. Therefore, it’s imperative to keep close tabs on your health and prioritise your well-being.

If you work in an environment where you’re dealing with angry people or frustrations, this could take its toll. There may be challenges in your local community or an issue with a sibling or neighbour that triggers bad feelings.

Ideally, do your bit to help others, to listen and counsel but don’t take on the woes of the world. This is especially important if you’re starting to feel tired or worn out with all that’s going on and you’d appreciate some time out.

Note that Mercury retreats back into Taurus on the 23rd and turns direct here on June 3rd. Mercury retrograde is an ideal time to go on retreat or take time out and look after yourself.

Scorpio Horoscope May 2022

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

eclipse, Virgo horoscope

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.
