I know things are ugh right now, but you’ll be in the mood to connect with others when Gemini season arrives later this month, Aries! But first, the month starts off with a Full Moon and lunar eclipse in Scorpio on May 5. Eclipses coincide with fated events, and lunar eclipses represent the ending or release of something. This lunar eclipse may bring up themes related to shared resources, taxes, inheritances, loss, or reckoning with the past in some significant way. Specifically, it will bring you back to May 16, 2022 and finish up a storyline that was unfolding around that time. Carve out time for rest so emotional breakthroughs can take place. Engaging in self-care or seeking out the support of those you trust can feel nourishing under these moonbeams.
Venus, the planet of love and harmony, enters Cancer on May 7, bringing a wave of peace and calm to your personal life. You may be investing in your home or living situation, or simply experiencing a period of ease with roommates or family members. If you’re dating someone new, this is also an aligned time to introduce them to your family and friends. You’re still up for socializing, but would rather throw a party at your place! The Sun and Uranus, both in Taurus, meet at the same point in the sky on May 9, bringing sudden news about your financial situation. You may receive a check out of the blue, be in talks for a promotion, or decide to treat yourself to something you’ve desired for a long time. Expect the unexpected when it comes to work and finances today.
Mercury Retrograde finally ends on May 14 and your finances are back on track! A few days later, Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion, enters Taurus on May 16 for the first time since 2011. Jupiter’s journey through Taurus will mark a new cycle for your finances, livelihood, and personal comfort. This is a wealth-building time! This transit will likely be peppered with both the urge to spend and the ability to save a chunk of change. The following day on May 17, Jupiter in Taurus clashes with Pluto in Aquarius. Goals you’ve been working toward may receive some funding or you may be connected with powerful people who can help bring your dreams to life. Financial opportunities can also be tempting, but check in on your motives before agreeing to anything.
