The mystical and lovely astrologer and reader of the starts SRNAVERSE gives us a look into what the coming month has in store:
May is a busy month, let's run through the most important dates: Mercury enters Gemini on the 4th. Followed by Venus on the 9th, everything takes on a much more impersonal tone. Jupiter changes signs from Aquarius to Pisces on the 14th. It will slip back into Aquarius late July, but for now know that everything can feel a lot more scattered and spiritual. Before that however, we celebrate Taurus Season with a New Moon in their sign, on the 11th. It will harmonize with Neptune and Pluto, giving us good balance between the real and the fake.
On May 21st, the Sun moves into air sign Gemini. Eclipse season !intensity! begins on the 26th/27th with a Lunar Eclipse in fiery Sagittarius, concocting a whole lot of drama and chaos in its wake. The month ends on the 30th, with our 2nd retrograde, this time in the sign of Gemini, ending June 23rd. We seek freedom! Curiosity is our friend and because Mercury is the natural ruler of Gemini we can really use these 3 weeks to prepare better for what we wish to communicate in the future.
Declutter your life, Aries. Especially if red flags have been appearing for some time, but you’ve paid them no mind. As this month is a wild one, swirling with mixed feelings. It begins when Mercury moves into Gemini on the 4th, shifting into your 3rd house of communication. Venus joins a few days later, and the irony is that you may not feel like going through a tricky conversation to simplify a situation. How you think, behave and engage with others will come under the spotlight for these first two weeks, so it’s best to participate. A New Moon in Taurus brings business and increase in cash flow from the 11th. Something can develop with a certain friend or colleague, and it appears you’ve got plenty to traverse together. On the 14th, Jupiter enters Pisces and your 12th house of meditation. You will be procrastinating and looking for respite, so don’t ask much of yourself. A Lunar Eclipse in your 9th house occurs in Sagittarius on the 26th/27th, helping you embrace something you may have once pushed away. On the 30th, Mercury begins its retrograde in Gemini until late June, confusing your decisions.
Happy Birthday Taurus, it’s time for your opulent nature to shine right on through! May is a tense month, but nothing you haven’t seen before. You are in the mood to explore and dream big, especially in your career as Mercury enters your 2nd house of finances on the 4th, joined on the 9th by Venus too. You are looking to secure the bag, so stay attentive and busy. Collaborations and business opportunities come masked in many different disguises, you must stay in charge. The New Moon in your sign activates your 1st house on the 11th, and is very prosperous as you. Be open to receiving and don’t make it a tendency to analyse every little thing about yourself. From the 26th, a Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius occurs in your 8th house of mystery, secrets can come to light especially if money or legal situations are involved. The energy of this Eclipse will take a while to unfold, so look out for what transpires in the next 4-6 months. Finally, Mercury goes retrograde in Gemini on the 30th, until the 23rd of June - your 2nd house activation means you should pay extra attention to career and/or investments, spending.
It's almost ticking over to your birthday time, darling Gemini. The spotlight is on you with so much going on this month.
