On May 5th, Jupiter forms a quintile to Uranus. We will notice and appreciate the more unique elements of situations, people, and projects.
On the 11th, the New Moon occurs in the sign of Taurus, prompting a new beginning. This brings a fresh start to our lives, awakening our needs to take charge, particularly when making ourselves feel more secure and comfortable. It’s a time for re-evaluating our relationship with money and possessions to discover what it is that we truly value and that which genuinely makes us happy and fulfilled or which things need to go. This is a time for reconnecting with nature and the world of the five senses. This moon transit has much healing potential.
Jupiter enters Pisces on May 13th This transit encourages us to give of ourselves and to embrace compassion and imagination. With Jupiter in Pisces, we attract luck and rich life experiences through our intuition, imagination, and compassion. We’re charitable, and we look out for the underdog. We are more idealistic and perhaps less ambitious in a worldly sense, more motivated to give than receive. Jupiter in Pisces encourages us to attend to our needs for gentleness, understanding, and compassion.
On May 23rd, Saturn turns retrograde, and it will continue to travel in this apparent backward motion until October 10th. While Saturn is retrograde, we more often review our responsibilities and commitments than deal with them directly in the moment. There can be more than the usual experiences of guilt and self-doubt as we internalize fears but also the chance to reassess our commitments.
The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on the 26th in the sign of Sagittarius. This eclipse brings sudden awareness to our lives, reminding us of the need to reach out beyond our usual routines. The Full Moon in Sagittarius is a time of expansion. As such, we should be especially aware of what we’d like to promote at this time, trying to put out of our minds those things that won’t serve us well if blown out of proportion.
On May 27th, Mercury turns retrograde in Gemini, and there can be more than usual miscommunications, delays, retractions, and possibly transportation problems. Mercury will be retrograde until June 22nd, staying in the sign of Gemini for the duration.
