There is an Astrological Square between Uranus and Saturn this month. Confrontation will be a theme, as will integrity and justice. Be very aware of the energy you put into things and your motivations. Karma will be taking care of those who aren’t being fair or have negative motivations in their life.
The tarot card for the month is the Ace of Cups: This is a great card for new relationships, love interests and friendships in the month of May. You might also start working more with your intutive skills!
The New Moon is on May 11th in stable Taurus
The Full Moon is on May 26th in the traveling Sagittarius.
Note that there is also a Full Lunar Eclipse this month and Mercury goes into retrograde on the 29th.
The dynamic Mars shakes your waters a little in May, my impulsive Aries. It takes a lot of composure to deal with your family issues and you may feel strongly that the place does not fit you! Do not worry though, since the communicative Mercury and the sensual and highly helpful Aphrodite put their hand and balance the situation. Your friends and loved ones are there to help you get through it all. Luck continues to be on your side in some way. Your mood may drop towards the end of the month, but you take advantage of the moment to introspect and review many issues of the past. The New Moon on the 11th of the month in the stable Taurus favors finances, as the possibility of a new source of income increases. The Full Moon and total lunar eclipse on May 26 in travelling Sagittarius brings you joy, opens your horizons and makes you believe in the good that will come!
Tarot Card: The King of Wands
It’s time for you to harness all that fiery energy, Aries, and apply it to the things you want most in life. The King of Wands is the pinnacle example of the energy of fire, so make sure you use yours wisely.
Yes, it is a spectacular planetary aspect on the beginning of May for you, my stable Taurus. With the unexpected Uranus meeting your Sun, it brings you ups and downs and risks. As if that were not enough, it collides a bit with the planet of life lessons Saturn, a fact that creates a relative discomfort and irritation. But the sensual Aphrodite helps you and softens
the explosive climate as long as it is from the 9th to the 20th of the month in your zodiac sign. The lucky Jupiter and the dynamic Mars make beautiful aspects and make you the center. The New Moon on the 11th of the month and this one in your zodiac sign brings new interesting proposals on your way with chances of evolution. The Full Moon and total lunar
eclipse on May 26 in the traveler Sagittarius brings ups and downs in finances and requires special attention to expenses, purchases and payments.
Tarot card: 5 of Pentacles
Sometimes you have to do things all by yourself, Taurus. You won’t be able to rely on others for their support and guidance, but it will be good to do things on your own terms and know—without a doubt—that you are fully capable of doing it yourself.
Introversion and hesitation at the beginning of May, my communicative Gemini. But do not worry, your planet, the communicative Mercury is somewhere nearby and helps you put thoughts and tasks in order. Towards the end of the month, of course, on the 29th of the month, when he will return retrograde, emphasize the logic and not the emotion …. so you will go below. Sensual Venus passes in your zodiac sign on May 9 and your eroticism increases. The New Moon on the 11th of the month in the fixed Taurus pushes you to go out more, to hang out with friends and to smile a little bit more. The Full Moon and a total lunar eclipse on May 26 in the traveling Sagittarius shed light and shadow on relationships that need minor “repairs”. The time has come to perhaps lay new foundations in your interpersonal relationships, in business, in friendships. If you do not dare now … the moment will pass.
Tarot Card: Death
This is a time for you to really be honest with yourself about what needs to change in your life. Things will not be the same. Once you accept this and let go, you’ll find that you can actually go to the next level in life because you allowed for this transformation to happen. Well done!
May hides opportunities for you, my sensitive Cancer. With the passing of the lucky Jupiter to the dreamy Pisces travels abroad, contacts with people who are far away and long-term plans are favored. Everything you once imagined and worked hard can come true. Until the end of July you have time ahead of you. The dynamic Mars is still in your sign and gives you dynamism and energy, as it pushes you to take your measures, to settle and claim everything that belongs to you. However, it would be good to avoid secret discussions and meetings, since the communicative Mercury is preparing to return retrograde on the 29th of the month. The New Moon on the 11th of the month in the stable Taurus gives solutions to many problems and clarifies the landscape. The Full Moon and total lunar eclipse on May 26 in the traveling Sagittarius may shed light on health issues, where you will be called upon to change eating habits or “bad habits” in general.
Tarot Card: 6 of Cups reversed
You might feel like you are in uncharted, unfamiliar territory this month, Cancer. Try not to worry too much, as you might have the opportunity to shed old ways of doing things and trauma-inspired coping mechanisms. It’s time to focus on a healthier way of doing things this month.
The planetary patchwork at the zenith of your Horoscope continues in May, my glowing Leo. This means that the Sun, the communicative Mercury and the sensual Venus emphasize your social image, your professional status and your goals. You become more extroverted, you breathe again, and you throw off the burdens of the past. The lucky Jupiter in the airy and innovative Aquarius gives you more opportunities. The New Moon on the 11th of the month in the stable Taurus favors your professional career but also brings to the surface your creative side. The planet of life lessons Saturn that is in motion in front of you, becomes retrograde on the 23rd of the month and this takes you back a bit again in everything that has to do with relationships, personal or professional. The Full Moon and total lunar eclipse on May 26 give the traveler Sagittarius optimism. The icing on the cake is the favorite Mercury, of course, who also goes retrograde on the 29th of the month and is responsible for any delays and misunderstandings.
Tarot Card: 4 of Cups
You might feel a bit bored with what life is offering you right now, Leo. Just make sure you aren’t looking a gift horse in the mouth!! Even if it isn’t grand and attractive, the offer(s) you are getting in life are going to be good for you!
May begins with pleasant meetings and substantive discussions, my organizational Virgo. The dreamy Poseidon is opposite your zodiac sign and you feel your romantic and artistic side flourishing. The communicative Mercury, the sensual Venus and the Sun pass through the zenith of your Horoscope and you are quite concerned with your social and professional image. The New Moon on the 11th of the month in the stable Taurus favors travel, transportation, studies abroad. Beware of professional suggestions, because they can be misleading. Even a flirtation can be just a temporary story with no substance. The Full Moon and total lunar eclipse on May 26 in the traveling Sagittarius puts you in a dilemma between career and family, professional and personal obligations. Do not forget that the communication planet Mercury passes retrograde on the 29th of the month and so your plans freeze.
Tarot card: 3 of Cups reversed
It might be time for you to put your nose to the grindstone and focus more on your professional image than your social life. While hanging out with friends is wonderful and fun, you need to watch out about spending toooo much time partying.
Contradictory things in May for you, my diplomat Libra. Professional and social obligations are not missing. You have enough tension inside you. Of course, you imagine that all the difficulties will pass, summer will come, you will go on trips and you will meet people who are far away from you and you have missed them a lot. Your mental health and the treatment of all problems by you alone is paramount. Do not let those around you influence you. The New Moon on the 11th of the month in the stable Taurus favors finances and may open new sources of income. The Full Moon and a total lunar eclipse on May 26 in the traveler Sagittarius bring good news. Summer is predicted to be “hot”, full of adventure and interesting acquaintances. But beware of deceptions and do not give in to any family pressures. Your luck is smiling … do you see it?
Tarot card: 8 of Wands
Things will be shifting quickly for you this month, Libra, and you will be the one who is in charge of the direction you want to take things in. Even if the change originates from the outside, try to make sure you represent your needs and desires as things play out.
May begins beautifully for you, my secretive Scorpio. The lucky Jupiter passes to the sensitive Pisces and it seems that he favors your erotic life, business and maybe even the acquisition of a descendant. You say what? On the other hand, of course, so that we do not forget, the planet of life lessons Saturn brakes you and puts small obstacles in your family. You do not have such a good communication, but you always find a way to overcome everything! A little revolution, a little mess, a good captain will survive the storm … The New Moon on the 11th of the month in the stable Taurus favors your personal life anyway and brings opportunities for the unattached. The Full Moon and total lunar eclipse on May 26 to the traveler Sagittarius shed light and shadow on finances, paradoxically favors them and prepares the ground for the retrograde course of Mercury that begins on the 29th of the month.
Tarot card: The Tower, reversed
Uh-oh Scorpio. Things might be bubbling up to a head, but you aren’t ready to fully resolve them yet. Why are you holding onto this drama? Wouldn’t you be better off to just let it go?
May is a crucial month, my traveling Sagittarius. Important planetary events and the change of the lucky Jupiter for a while in the airy Aquarius will bring “air” in your daily life and will mix the landscape a little. The New Moon on the 11th of the month in the stable Taurus favors finances and probably shows new sources of income. The Full Moon and total lunar eclipse on May 26 in your zodiac sign shed all the lights on your interpersonal relationships. There are no risks, neither in the personal, nor in the financial. Generally, avoid superficiality, impulsivity and do not create dependent relationships. The communicative Mercury will begin its retrograde course on the 29th of the month, where it opens a new life cycle, with enough blur in thought and lack of realism. Do not fall into the trap of the dreamer Poseidon. Try to see behind the words …
Tarot card: Queen of Wands
This is a card that is telling me that you will feel good, motivated and confident in yourself. Keep up with the good work and keep your attitude positive!
May is starting well for you too, my workaholic Capricorn. Conversations full of meaning, romantic feelings and a lot of tenderness pay off in the first ten days. You put the grounds on your relationships or will know your other half if you are still “searching”. The dynamic Mars is of course in front of you and spoils it a bit, creating tensions and confrontations with those closest to you, something that makes you very tired. But believe me, it can be for good in the end. The New Moon on the 11th of the month in the stable Taurus favors your interpersonal relationships and emphasizes your creativity. It is very likely that you will experience unique moments with your partner. The Full Moon and total lunar eclipse on May 26 in the traveling Sagittarius brings to light an old and persistent health issue or you may come to some financial compromise, which you do not want so much. The ground is preparing for the retrograde communication Mercury on the 29th of the month with setbacks and minor setbacks.
Tarot card: 2 of Pentacles reversed
Sorry to tell you, Capricorn, but it might be a bit of a challenge to get your balance this month. Make sure you have a bit extra in the bank and also keep the challenges in mind so they don’t completely throw you off.
With small restrictions, May is coming for you, my airy Aquarius. The planet of life lessons Saturn reminds you of the words (that you do not like, I know): discipline, organization, consistency, self-control. Lucky Jupiter leaves your zodiac sign in the meantime (until the end of July) and you are called to take a distance from any hasty and superficial decisions. Review your plans and some views and lay new foundations and priorities. Of course, the appetite for fun will not be lacking, since the Sun, the communicative Mercury and the sensual Aphrodite in the communicative Gemini shake you. The New Moon on the 11th of the month in the fixed Taurus favors the changes (moving, furniture, offspring) and changes the daily life. The Full Moon and total lunar eclipse on May 26 in the traveler Sagittarius “throws” you in the spotlight almost by force. Everyone will want your company here and now … do you want to be cloned?
Tarot card: Page of Wands reversed
You won’t be able to chase after every little new idea or spark this month, Aquarius, and that might have you feeling down in the dumps. But, if you get organized today, that might give you the opportunity to do more of what you love next month.
With the favor of the lucky Jupiter, May begins, my dreamy Pisces. Optimism but also arrogance mixed with super-optimism, will be emotions that will alternate at regular intervals throughout the rest of the year. Your daily life will definitely become easier and the dynamic Mars that will be in the introverted sign of Cancer all months will give you empathy, tenderness, romance and sensuality. The dreamy Poseidon, this Governor of yours, may bring a romance to the unattached. But beware of deception. The New Moon on the 11th of the month in the stable Taurus favors the promotion of agreements. The Full Moon and total lunar eclipse on May 26 in the traveling Sagittarius makes you more skeptical than ever. Family and perhaps a very special emotional proposal will put you in a dilemma. On the 29th of the month, the communicative Mercury turns retrograde and there will be misunderstanding, delays and confusion.
Tarot card: 4 of Swords
Time for a break this month, Pisces. It seems like you can finally rest and find comfort in your home life and your mind won’t be troubling you. You can breathe a heavy sigh of relief this month.
