Scorpio Horoscope May 2019

 

Scorpio (24 October – 22 November)

Money Mindset

Your ruling planet, Mars, is in Gemini and your joint finance sector until the 15th. This is about shared resources, also inheritance, your legacy and what you receive from the past. It’s wise to dig deep into your psyche during this time, to unlock your hidden motivations.

Notice whether your beliefs hold you back around money. If so, use this transit of Mars to work on changing your mindset. This is worth doing because you also have the expansive planet, Jupiter, in Sagittarius and your personal money sector.

Jupiter’s currently retrograde turning your attention inwards. This is often a time when inner work benefits you. Either that or draw up a long-term plan ready to put into action when Jupiter turns direct in August 2019.

Early in May, however, Jupiter’s very active and opposes your planet Mars on the 5th. Also, during this period, Jupiter makes helpful connections to Mercury on the 3rd and Venus on the 9th. This whole combination is lively for money and it’s here where you’re wise to focus your efforts.

Turn your attention to money matters, whether you’re keen to earn more or you want to use the money you have to good effect. One word of caution is not to get overly carried away. Ensure that any schemes and dreams are based in reality. Pursue the possible goal rather than try to attain what’s impossible.

If you’re a typical Scorpio, you tend to be savvy with money. Trust your natural instincts about what feels right and what’s going to lead you to the allegorical pot of gold. 

Swift Progress

The key planets in Aries early in the month are Mercury (communication) and Venus (love/money). Therefore, you do need to work hard in order to reap the benefits. Teamwork is essential and knowing the right person to contact to help you make progress. Think expert advice. 

The date to note is the 1st, when Mercury and Mars are in mutual reception, i.e. in each other’s star sign. This means they’re working together in cahoots. It’s an ideal opportunity to walk your talk and put your thoughts into action. Act swiftly as both planets benefit from a speedy response.

Beware the Spiral

There will be some people in your life who try and talk you out of your good ideas or worry you with their doom & gloom theories. Saturn and Pluto are currently in Capricorn and your communication sector. This can represent authority figures holding you back or conversations you have that leave you feeling despondent.

The key dates to note are the 1st & 2nd, the 7th & 9th. Choose your confidantes carefully during the first part of the month and be around people who raise your confidence, your vibe.

Also, watch out for negative thinking on your own part. If you’re a typical Scorpio, there will be a side of your nature that can spiral inwards. You’re a deep, soulful thinker. This also means you reach places that other people never dare venture into. You might be processing hidden emotions this month and bringing them to the light, in order to release them.

Fast Money

Play your cards right financially and you could find that you’re able to make swift progress on or around the 21st. On this date, both the Sun and Mercury enter Gemini and make a super conjunction. This is brilliant for a consultation, meeting or a genius idea.

It would be a good date to choose to draw up a new financial strategy and look at ways of boosting your finances. Work alongside other people and share your good ideas.

The areas of life mentioned are where there’s a fast pace this month and things can happen quickly. There are other areas of your life, however, where you’re wise to take things slowly, even if life steps in and brings the unexpected.

Partnership Matters

One such area is your close relationships. There’s not one day this month where an inner planet isn’t moving steadily through Taurus and your relationship sector. Plus, the New Moon and Full Moon also highlight this area of your life.

The New Moon takes place on the 4th, a symbol of new beginnings. It falls in Taurus, so there’s a chance to start afresh when it comes to love and relationship. This could be a personal partnership or a business partnership. It’s great for joint ventures and signing contracts, as well as reviving a personal union.

Also, you now have the planet of change, Uranus, in Taurus and your relationship sector. It took up residence here in March and is in action this month on the 8th and 18th. Uranus favours spontaneity, acting fast, turning life on its head. 

It can be fun and exciting, never stable and boring. Anything goes when Uranus is in action. Bear this in mind with regard to your close relationships, as it could be a truly, exciting month for you.

A Passionate Full Moon

The key date to note is the 18th for two reasons. Firstly, this is the day of the Full Moon in your star sign Scorpio. Full Moons heighten emotions, your sign of Scorpio is passionate, even obsessive and people go a little bit crazy on the Full Moon.

On the very same day, there’s a Venus/Uranus conjunction in Taurus. Venus is the planet of love and your partner planet and Uranus promises something special. Certainly, you can guarantee that life won’t remain the same. Someone new may enter your life on or around this date or your situation may change dramatically.

There’s also a foreign theme during this period as your planet Mars enters Cancer and your travel sector on the 16th. Plus, Mars teams up with Uranus on the 22nd. 

This could highlight a holiday romance, a second honeymoon or hearing from a lover who lives abroad. And, if love’s not foreground in your life right now, be your own best friend and line up an exciting adventure or new experience.

Libra Horoscope May 2019

 

Libra (23 September – 23 October)

Your ruling planet, Venus, remains in Aries and your relationship sector until the 15th. As you’ve experienced two Full Moons in Libra in March and April, this continues to be a powerful time for you and your close relationships.

Heart-felt Relationships

Issues could be magnified or you find that you’re being lead by your emotions, your heart. Jupiter is the big planet and on the 3rd, 5th and 9th, Jupiter’s in action. This is expansive and heart-felt, whether relationships are overwhelming or you’re in the throes of love. 

Also, Venus and Mars, the lovers of the heavens, unite on the 14th and this is special. These two planets don’t connect very often but when they do, it’s time to sit up and take notice. Venus is in Aries and your relationship sector and Mars is in Gemini and the sector that rules foreign connections, the bigger picture.

This could signal a holiday romance or choosing to go away with the one you love. If you want to spice up a close relationship, do something different and life-enhancing together. It would be a  wonderful time to go on a big adventure.

The one question mark is that Venus isn’t strong in Aries, so be careful not to lose yourself in love or allow other people to dominate. Work at boosting your self esteem, especially if relationship issues are heightened.

If you’re a typical Libra, relationships are important to you, whether you’re in one or out of one. You tend to gravitate towards 1-to-1 partnerships in all areas of your life. Many of you are happiest when you’re in love and in a healthy, working relationship.

Past Ties

Also, there may be some issues at home or opposition from your family early this month. Key planets in Aries and your relationship sector clash with Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn and your home and family sector. The dates to note are the 1st & 2nd, the 7th & 9th. 

It depends on your current situation what this means to you. Notice if you’re allowing the past to hold you back and consider where family are a pull or a tie. Saturn and Pluto are linked to authority and power, so themes of responsibility and duty may loom large. Perhaps, you need to care for a parent or someone else in your life is trying to lead you down a road that’s not of your choosing.

Notice too, where you’re stuck in the past and can’t move on. This might be linked to an ex, a past love situation or something personal to you. Be gentle with yourself if this is true for you. Aries energy is fast and furious but flaring up will only cause arguments and may push you further apart rather than bring you closer together.

Tests & Travel

This is also a month when travel or study calls you forth. In fact, this could be your chance of doing things independently and setting off on a new adventure. Action planet Mars is in Gemini and this sector of your horoscope until the 16th and the Sun and communication planet, Mercury, enter Gemini on the 21st.

The 21st could turn out to be a special date as there’s a super conjunction between the Sun and Mercury. This would be a great time to take an exam or test and flex your intellectual muscle. Being one of the air signs, you’re a clever cookie so make the most of your personal skill set. Focus on what you do well and you could be rewarded in return.

Money Wizard

Money, possessions, values and self-worth are also foreground during May. In fact, this is a dominant theme of the month. Your planet, Venus, moves into Taurus and one of your money sectors on the 15th and this is your time to act.

Also, notice what happens on or around the New Moon in Taurus on the 4th. A New Moon is a symbol of new beginnings, a chance to make a fresh start. Earth signs, like Taurus, favour financial and emotional security. 

You could receive a gift or bonus on or around this date. Alternatively, there might be a surprise around money, and perhaps not a welcome one. It is wise ensuring your money is safe and secure this month and you know what’s coming in and going out. Become a money wizard and get on top of your finances.

High Stakes

This is important because in March, the planet of change and the unexpected, Uranus, moved into Taurus. It takes up residence here for the next seven years. This is rarely a stable influence on your finances. You can make money fast but you see downswings as well as upswings.

Uranus is in action this month on the 8th & the 18th. The 18th is particularly significant for you. This is the date when your planet Venus meets Uranus and there’s a Full Moon cutting across the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac.

This is big planetary energy, emotional, volatile and exciting. Taking a risk, playing big in life could reap rewards on or around this date. You might be able to take advantage of a changing financial market or find that money comes your way unexpectedly.

It is lively astrology, however, so be aware that a high risk strategy won’t always pay off. If you want to speculate, ensure you can afford to lose what you invest before leaping into action.

On the whole, however, the astrology feels promising. Also, during this period, action planet Mars enters Cancer and your career sector. Mars teams up with Uranus in a helpful planetary aspect on the 22nd. This combination suggests that being daring and bold could pay off for you big-time.

Virgo Horoscope May 2019

 

Virgo (23 August – 22 September)

This is a month to get ahead and fast. This is the message of your ruling planet, Mercury, as it whizzes through three star signs and three different sectors of your horoscope. Yes, there will be a few challenges or obstacles to overcome but quick thinking and and fast action solves most issues.

Speedy Action

It all starts for you on the 1st when there’s a helpful connection between your planet Mercury in Aries and Mars in Gemini. This is important because the two planets representing speed are in each other’s star sign. In astrology, this is called mutual reception and it suggests the planets are working together and cooperating with each other.

This lights up your joint finance sector (Aries) and your career and vocation sector (Gemini). Therefore, it’s about work and money and this is where you can make progress swiftly as May begins. In fact, what you initiate or get moving on early in the month could quickly accelerate and bring you success before May is over.

Help Is At Hand

Mercury’s also working well with big planet Jupiter in Sagittarius and your home and family sector. This will be evident on the first weekend of May. It would be an ideal time to get together with family or help one another out financially. 

Pooling resources, working with family, taking care of one another is the theme of this connection. It’s also helpful if you’re moving home, looking for new accommodation or, in some shape or form, making money from the place you live. You could also be discussing plans for later in the year, the month of August in particular.

Onwards & Upwards

Action planet, Mars, remains in Gemini and your career sector until the 16th. This adds drive and ambition to your career toolbox. Mars is assertive, dynamic and go-getting. You might be looking at ways to create more variety in what you do or take on an extra job or role.

There could be some rumblings from family or people close to you, either holding you back or needing your attention. This might issues around include child care or deciding who has the kids when if you and your partner are no longer together. 

There’s a question mark around lovers as well early in May, especially someone who’s putting demands on you. The key dates to note are the 1st & 2nd, the 7th & 9th. If in doubt, don’t let anyone hold you back now as the forward-moving vibe is taking place at the top of your horoscope. This is an excellent month to get ahead.

Career Peak

The peak astrology takes place on the 21st. On this date, both your planet, Mercury, and the Sun move into Gemini and your career sector. On the same day, they make a super conjunction. This is red-hot for you and an excellent date to plan a meeting or interview, to take a step up the career ladder.

It’s your chance to shine bright, for other people to notice your talents. Don’t hold back on or around this date and don’t hide your light away. It’s your chance to be vocal about what you can do and how you can bring your skills to the table. You’re right to get excited about work and vocational matters and to spread the word about what you’re aiming for.

Foreign Connections

There is another strong calling this month towards travel and study. Therefore, see how you can combine the two. Travel is wonderful for shifting your perspective and bringing new opportunities your way.

This month may coincide with a business trip or a plan to extend your business globally. Foreign connections are well-starred now and fizzing with excitement. This has a lot to do with Uranus’ recent move into Taurus and your travel and study sector. It took up residence here in March and is lively this month on the 8th and 18th.

Notice what opportunities pop up on or around these dates. Being spontaneous and taking a risk could work out for the best. Earth sign energy is strong in May and this is your element. Trust your natural instincts and follow any hints or clues that lead you in a new direction.

Uranus is unpredictable so you do also need to be prepared for the unexpected, especially if you’re travelling or studying on or around the dates mentioned. Allow yourself extra time if necessary and be willing and flexible to take a diversion if needed.

Uranus brings change which taps into the mutable side of your Virgo nature. Even though you’re an earth sign and you need security in life, you also crave variety. Bear this in mind in May and see what adventures or new experiences you can line up.

Expand Your Life

The New and Full Moons also highlight this same sector of your horoscope. The New Moon on the 4th is an excellent date to plan a trip or to sign up for a course. Either that or ensure you’re away. Ringing the changes is a good theme to bear in mind now as anything new and different will be a breath of fresh air.

The Full Moon takes place on the 18th when the Moon shines its light bright. This is a strong time to tap into your natural intuition and to do what feels right. You may sense a pull towards finding a deeper meaning or purpose in life. 

This Full Moon falls in Scorpio, one of the water signs and your communication sector. Expand your thinking on or around this Full Moon and open up your world. It might be a friend or someone you’ve known for a long time who introduces you to an alternative outlook, a new way at viewing the world. It could turn out to be a truly soul-ful experience.

Leo Horoscope May 2019

 

Leo (23 July – 22 August)

Looking Ahead

This is the time of year when your ruler, the Sun, is in Taurus, the star sign at the peak of your horoscope. The Sun remains here until the 21st which means it’s an excellent month to look ahead, to decide where you’re going and why.

Taurus rules your career and vocation, status and reputation. Look back over previous years to see whether May was a stand-out month for you. This time around, the planetary vibe is forward-moving and, on the whole, the Sun gets helpful aspects from other key planets. Therefore, focus on these areas of life and see what you can achieve over the next few weeks.

This starts with the New Moon in Taurus on the 4th, a symbol of new beginnings. This is a pure New Moon. It gets support from Neptune in Pisces and your joint finance sector, exact on the 9th. Then, from Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn and your work and lifestyle sector, exact on the 11th & 14th respectively.

Team Work

Plus, as the month continues, other key planets join the Sun in Taurus. Communication planet, Mercury, is here from the 6th until the 21st and the planet of relating, Venus, enters Taurus on the 15th.

Look to your colleagues, socialise and focus on team work during these periods. Both Mercury and Venus are socially-oriented so this is about creating strong bonds with other people, learning to manage and delegate well.

Ring The Changes

It has to be said that there is another factor influencing your career and vocation. This is the planet of change, Uranus, which took up residence in Taurus in March and was conjunct your ruler, the Sun, last month on April 22nd.

This month, Uranus is in action on the 8th & 18th, when it teams up first with Mercury, then Venus. Uranus can be innovative and new, as it’s the planet associated with all things modern and technological.

When it falls in your career sector, you might be setting off on a new path or want to embrace more space and freedom in your career. It can be a good time to go freelance or work differently in some way. Sometimes, you find that you can’t do things the way you always have done in the past. Life steps in to move you on or shows you where change is required.

Full Moon Celebrations

This planetary influence culminates at the Full Moon on the 18th. This is an important Full Moon for you because it cuts across the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac and the foundations of your horoscope. 

This Full Moon may bring an award or a completion of a deadline or project. There could be a surprise involved as the Full Moon takes place the same day as the Venus/Uranus conjunction in Taurus. 

Perhaps, you’re celebrating someone else’s good news or you discover someone’s star-struck over you. Both love and money are potentially in the mix. Uranus is one of your partner planets, so this suggests exciting events for your other half or meeting someone unexpectedly via your working life.

Decision Time

For some of you, this month may require a compromise, especially if you’re busy at work. A trip away or a study course could be postponed or even cancelled early in the month. Planets in fire sign, Aries, run into Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn and your work and health sector.

You might be disappointed if you’ve put in for holiday leave or you have to cover for someone else. The key dates are the 1st & 2nd, the 7th & 9th. Bear this in mind and see if you can find a way around any blocks or obstacles that emerge. 

A child could help you out or perhaps a lover. Jupiter’s the key planet in this respect and Jupiter’s active the weekend of the New Moon in Taurus from the 3rd to the 5th.

Note too that the Full Moon in Scorpio on the 18th also highlights home and family affairs. The thrust of this month’s astrology is taking you out into the world. Yet, you still have some responsibilities or duties which require your time and attention. These need to be factored in, especially if your schedule is busy, erratic or you’re starting a new business or project.

Group Connections

Friends are also in the mix this month thanks to Mars in Gemini until the 16th. In fact, some friends could be getting pushy and may demand too much of you. Alternatively, you might find that you have a real drive for networking and using your connections to boost your own prospects.

This is certainly worth doing because on the 21st, your ruler, the Sun joins Gemini along with communication planet, Mercury. On the same day, these two planetary bodies make a super conjunction. 

Choose this date for an important meeting or interview or check out a group, club or society. It might bring good news your way or you hear of an initiative and you know you want to get involved.

Mars is slowing you down a little after the 16th when it enters Cancer and the most hidden sector of your horoscope. This indicates a need for retreat or more privacy in your life. Perhaps, too much gossip and information requires a reset. 

It’s certainly a lively month on the whole with a lot of different elements to juggle. Pace yourself and prioritise your own career, status and reputation. This is where you can make the biggest strides in the month ahead.

Gemini Horoscope May 2019

 

Gemini (21 May – 21 June)

This month feels like ready, set, go after a dreamy/confused start to 2019. In fact, your planet, Mercury, whizzes through three different star signs in the month of May. 

Pace Your Self

You too may find that life’s speeding up and, if you’re a typical Gemini, perhaps too much. Your usual mode of action is fast and you don’t always find it easy to stop and rest.

Even though Mercury, your ruler, moves through three star signs this month, that doesn’t mean you’re not also being encouraged to stop or, at least, slow the pace down. This is because the inner planets, including Mercury, are moving through Taurus in May and the most hidden sector of your horoscope.

Mercury will be in Taurus from the 6th until the 15th but the Sun’s in Taurus up until the 21st and the planet of relating, Venus, is in Taurus from the 15th onwards.  Traditionally, when planets are in this earth sign, you’re advised to turn your attention inwards, take time out, rest and retreat.

Nifty Relaxation

This is, however, a very different Taurus vibe because the planet of change, Uranus, is also in this sector of your horoscope. Uranus took up residence in Taurus in March and it’s conjunct your planet Mercury on the 8th and Venus on the 18th.

These dates could coincide with insights and your intuition may be strong. Or perhaps, you’re finding new or alternative ways to recharge your batteries. Knowing your star sign, Gemini, this would be something nifty like multi-tasking or meditating while you’re commuting.

Expect the unexpected too when Uranus is in action. This could flag up a time when you need extreme self-care or perhaps someone else requires your time, love and attention. You could find yourself chopping and changing your schedule and routine, because of external events.

Soothe Your Soul

The New Moon and Full Moon are also significant dates for you, especially with regard to taking time for yourself or contemplating what next for your work, lifestyle or routine.

The New Moon takes place on the 4th in Taurus and the most hidden sector of your horoscope. This is actually quite a lively weekend for you especially if you’re in a relationship or married. You might have a major social event to attend or decide your relationship warrants some quality time.

Taurus rules secrets and privacy in your horoscope. You might decide to keep certain thoughts or feelings to yourself. Notice what you’re craving in life or where you could benefit from setting new intentions. This is the ideal way to use the New Moon, to start afresh and create new daily habits that nurture you and feed your soul.

The Full Moon on the 18th cuts across the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac and Full Moons shine a light on what’s happening. Yes, they can be emotional but they often bring clarity and insight. You see more clearly how to balance the different elements of your life. Once again, your well-being is foreground during this Full Moon. 

Get Up And Go

If you’re looking for work or want to apply for a job, it would be an ideal date to do so. Plus, you seem to have plenty of get-up-and-go available throughout May, even if you have to be careful you don’t overdo it.

Action planet, Mars is in Gemini until the 15th, the planet of drive and ambition. You could be training for a marathon as Mars is a physical planet, speedy and fast. You’re more aware of your physical body when you have Mars in your star sign and it’s a good catalyst to get fit and strong.

The 1st could be a remarkable date for you because this is when Mars in Gemini teams up with your planet, Mercury in Aries. They are in each other’s sign of rulership, which is called mutual reception in astrology. Basically, it means they are working together, a helpful influence.

As Aries is your group sector, notice where in life there’s camaraderie and people working alongside one another. This might be within your friendship circle or perhaps out in the world. This whole combination is great for speaking up, finding your voice and making things happen. The symbol of Mars and Mercury coming together indicates that you can ‘walk your talk’.

Money Advice

One area of your life that could hold you back or be a cause for concern this month is money. The slower-moving planets, Saturn and Pluto, are currently square to the inner planets as they move through Aries. The key dates are 1st & 2nd, 7th & 9th. Be careful you don’t over-extend your budget trying to join in with others. If one big event is too expensive for you, take a step back.

These are not strong dates either if you’re applying for a loan or want to invest your money. Instead, wait until later in May when there’s strong earth sign energy on the 11th & 14th, the 16th & 18th. Take the pace slow when it comes to money matters and consider steady growth and long-term reward. 

There is a slight shift after the 16th as action planet Mars enters Cancer and your personal money sector. The 22nd could prove special especially if someone from your past pops up to help you with good advice or financial support.

Speaking Up

Your planet Mercury is back in action on the 21st when it’s super speedy. This is the date that both the Sun and Mercury enter your star sign, Gemini, and immediately make a super conjunction. Therefore, use this dynamic Gemini energy to line up something special. Arrange a meeting or interview, launch a project or personal initiative.

This is a great combination for finding your voice, marketing, selling and being persuasive. In fact, for a lot of the month of May, you can’t help but leap in and speak up. This is a big theme in the coming month when your voice can and will make a huge difference, not only in your own life but potentially to the lives of others as well.

Cancer Horoscope May 2019

 

Cancer (22 June – 22 July)

This month’s planetary vibe is forward-moving. Yet, there seem to be different areas of your life you’re required to juggle in order to keep up. 

Office Politics

Firstly, the emphasis on your career continues at a fast pace. Talk planet, Mercury, begins the month in Aries and your career and vocation sector. Also here is Venus, the planet of relating. Both planets are in the thick of the action at the start of May so expect to be busy.

You might be getting to know new team members or trying to sort out tricky office politics. Also, you could find there’s one person you clash with – the key dates are the 1st & 2nd, 7th & 9th. Try not to get on the wrong side of anyone if possible. At the same time, don’t allow yourself to feel bullied or imposed upon by a third party.

There may be ways out of this, perhaps changing your hours or working from home. Keep close tabs on your stress levels and don’t let any problems or issues get worse. Aries is a direct star sign, so leap in and sort things out sooner rather than later.

Lean On Your Friends

Your best allies this month are your friends, especially those friends you’ve known a long time. It’s really important to be around people who make you laugh and who are kind and supportive. 

There isn’t a day in May when you don’t have one of the inner planets moving through Taurus and your friendship and group sector. Get the right people on your side this month and you’ll feel a lot happier about your everyday life.

Also, your friends are the people to talk to if there is someone in your life who’s causing a problem, either personally or professionally. This might be an ex, your boss or someone you’re tied to in some shape or form. Lean on the people you trust as this will help you to feel more grounded and steady.

Wider Social Circle

Uranus, the planet of change, is also in Taurus where it took up residence in March 2019. Uranus is in action this month on the 8th and again on the 18th. On the one hand, this suggests that your friends will bring you excitement. Be around people who are alternative and unconventional and try out a new group, club or society.

This is also about what you believe in and wanting to do your bit for society and the beliefs that matter to you on a deep level. Uranus in Taurus is stirring things up in your community and triggering the side of your nature that wants to take action.

As a Sun Cancer, you are one of the cardinal signs of the zodiac, i.e. you’re a leader. Where you excel in your leadership is within your family, your community or your country. Join together with other people this month and make a difference.

Both the New Moon and Full Moons highlight this same axis of the zodiac. The New Moon on the 4th takes place in Taurus, a symbol of new beginnings. This starts a fortnight when you can be more pro-active and get involved with other people. Taurus also rules your hopes and wishes for the future.

A New Kind of Love

The Full Moon takes place on the 18th and cuts across the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac. This is a social Full Moon and it would be a great weekend for a big event or to do something special. You can’t count out finding love on this Full Moon as Scorpio rules your romance sector. 

Plus, on the same day, love planet Venus teams up with Uranus in Taurus – this links love and friendship. As Uranus is involved, things could happen fast.

If you’re a parent, you might receive surprise news from a child or grandchild, perhaps announcing a pregnancy or engagement.

When it comes to your own love life, you are still under the influence of Saturn and Pluto. Sometimes, this means being in a relationship for the long run, committing to a marriage or union. It’s important, however, that any relationship allows you breathing space. 

If someone’s not good for you or holding on too tight, you’ll feel it this month. The astrology does offer you a chance to cut ties in a relationship that’s not working out. Change your habits and you change the course of your future.

Be Kind To You

There will be times this month when it’s important to be kind to yourself. Up until the 16th, you have action planet Mars in Gemini and the most hidden sector of your horoscope. Be careful that you don’t turn your anger in on yourself and become your own worst critic. Instead, use journalling and the talking cure to express your feelings and release any tension.

The Sun and Mercury also move into Gemini on the 21st and immediately make a super conjunction. This is brilliant for finding the right person to talk to or make sense of a personal situation or stumbling block. You’re the solver of the zodiac with this combination and able to puzzle things out, either to help yourself or other people close to you.

On the 16th, Mars moves into your star sign, Cancer and this will boost your courage, your desire to take a stand. Focus on your personal goals and ambitions and line up a new challenge. Mars is a physical planet but it gives you drive and enhances your assertive nature.

Cut through any indecision and start to take the right course of action. Mars teams up with Uranus in Taurus on the 22nd. Once again, this suggests that it’s via your friends, your community or a group in your life that you can have a blast or start a revolution.

Aries May 2019

Aries (21 March – 19 April)

Walk Your Talk

May Day, the first of the month, is significant for you. Your planet Mars is currently in Gemini, the sign of communication, while Gemini’s ruler Mercury is in your star sign, Aries. On the 1st, these two quick-moving planets make a helpful sextile aspect and they are in mutual reception, i.e. in each other’s star sign.

This whole combination is lightening fast and it’s a great date to get things moving. This is about you and your personal goals and aims, your physical body, your image and profile. It’s about sharing ideas and brainstorming and making things happen. It’s an ideal time to ‘walk your talk’.

This is important because any hold-ups or blocks are likely to come via your work or your public profile. The planets linked to authority and power, Saturn and Pluto, are currently on go slow in Capricorn and squaring up to the inner planets as they move through Aries.

Notice what’s not working out in your life or who’s holding you back. You might be up against the authorities or dealing with a difficult boss. The trickiest dates in this respect are the 1st & 2nd, the 7th & 9th. Even more reason to look after no. 1 and focus on creating something new in your life.

Making Money

Money is the big pull this month. Therefore, you might be willing to make compromises around work and status or with regard to your reputation. On the 4th, there’s a New Moon in Taurus, an ideal date to set your intentions around money or write an abundance cheque. This is a good way of attracting abundance into your life.

Plus, as the inner planets move through Taurus, they connect with Saturn and Pluto in a helpful way. If you have long-term goals and plans around money, you need to do the sensible thing. Yet, there’s an opportunity now to get things moving in other areas. It’s an ideal month to start a new project, initiate exciting plans and talk about what next.

Both the Sun and talk planet Mercury in Taurus meet up with Saturn and Pluto on the following dates; the 11th & 14th, the 16th & 18th. What you start on or near the New Moon could swiftly bring results mid-month.

This is also the time of the Full Moon in Scorpio which takes place on the 18th. This Full Moon cuts across the Taurus-Scorpio axis of the zodiac and the financial sectors of your horoscope. Full Moons shine a light on your situation. They often bring clarity, culmination or a sense of completion. It’s a good time to trust your intuition, especially around money.

The Uranus Factor

The other factor that’s influencing money matters is the planet of change, Uranus. Uranus entered Taurus in March and this month it meets up with Mercury (communication) on the 8th and Venus (love/money) on the 18th, the same day as the Full Moon.

This suggests you have two clear options ahead of you in May. One is to secure your employment options or your investments. The other is to create something new, take a risk, be an innovator.

Your star sign, Aries, is brilliant at starting new projects. If you want to make money this month or put your money to a good use, here’s your opportunity. It’s the ideal time to shift your mindset around money, boost your self value and worth and ensure you’re paid what you deserve. Be a money innovator this month while the going’s good.

Family Concerns

Also, your home and family come under the cosmic radar from the 16th onwards. This is when Mars, your ruling planet, enters Cancer, the sign related to home and family. Plus, a few days later, Mars teams up with innovative Uranus. 

Look at ways of saving on your mortgage or rent, team up with the rest of the family to pool resources and consider your next steps regarding where you live. Mars’ move into Cancer is significant for you because the Cancer/Capricorn axis is where the eclipses are taking place this year and next. 

You may already have found yourself on the move when the first eclipse in this cycle kicked in during July 2018. The eclipses highlight the work/life balance and the foundations of your horoscope. You’re wise to get ahead of the game and start thinking about where change is likely over the next year or so.

Sowing Seeds

This month’s astrology turns the focus to you, making your own decisions, focusing on your personal goals and projects. However, a single life is a solitary life and people count. While Mars is in Gemini until the 16th, actively engage with other people and make new friends. 

The contacts you make reap rewards on or around the 21st when there’s a Sun/Mercury conjunction in Gemini. This is a gorgeous date to choose for a meeting or interview or an important conversation. It’s great for studying and teaching too.

Also, love is highlighted thanks to Venus’ transit through your star sign, Aries, until the 15th. Plus, Venus and Mars unite on the 14th. This could turn out to be a special date for love or, at the very least, partnership. Work alongside other people and make time for the ones you love.

Venus and Mars were lovers in mythology and they don’t come together that often this year. Therefore, another good reason to make the most of their helpful connection mid-month.

May is a good time to get the basics of life right and to keep putting one foot in front of the other. You can learn a lot about yourself now and put what you learn to good use. Not everything will go your way now. Sow enough seeds, however, and you can guarantee that at least some of them will grow and flourish in time.
