The month of May features astrological fireworks in the form of two eclipses, a Mercury Retrograde in Mercury’s own sign of Gemini, and Jupiter changing signs, entering into Aries the same day that Mercury turns to retrograde motion, on May 10th. Eclipses arrive in batches twice a year and are high-powered lunations when the Sun and Moon come together in zodiacal longitude and, as well, the vertical dimension known as declination, so that they have the potential to occlude or shadow each other. Their effects are said to last six months. The TaurusNew Moon Solar Eclipse that governs the May month launches its thirty-day cycle on April 30th, in the early afternoon on the west coast or up to early evening depending on how far east, and features Uranus in the same sign and only a few degrees away, and as well a beautiful Venus-Jupiter-Neptune conjunction that speaks of joy and spiritual connection in the midst of the seeming disasters of this difficult decade. The May 15th Lunar Eclipse and Full Moon that follows two weeks later might serve as something of a culmination for the transformational evolutionary developments of this precious timing.
In the April 30th event there are several notable astrological features that will color the next thirty days of this current lunation cycle, at least, and perhaps all the way to early November and the fall eclipses. They are, first and foremost, the presence of Uranus in fairly close conjunction with the Sun and Moon, four degrees away. This brings further surprising events and also revelatory information that arises in unusual ways, from the depths of our intuitional faculty. The Sun and Moon also sextile Mars at 11 Pisces almost exactly, bringing in that powerful energy for action-orientation. Then, as far a new planets, with Pluto in partile square to Haumea at 28 Libra, there is as well an exact parallel between Uranus and Haumea, the latter representing Nature connection, protecting the environment, and ancient principles of moral compass, of right action and right relationship, that are very present in their articulation or else in their absence during this difficult decade of chaotic culture war and outright attack on sovereign nations.
Also in this potent New Moon eclipse configuration, the close conjunction of Venus and Jupiter at 27 Pisces, exact to almost a minute of a degree, also deserves attention, especially because Neptune is also nearby. The softer side of this May month is here very evident, as the ocean of compassion and other-worldly spiritual dimension represented by Neptune, and by the Pisces Water sign, are also therefore given a major play in the archetypal landscape of the current eclipse season.
Alongside these varied planetary symbols is also the looming Mercury Retrograde, with Mercury already slowing in the New Moon timing, preparing to station to retrograde motion on May 10th. This signals a shift in the mental weather when we start making mistakes in timing and in missing connections, especially since the retrograde begins in Mercury’s own sign of Gemini. This lends a reflexively introspective quality to the last two thirds of May, with the quality of this energy shifting again on May 22nd when Mercury retrogrades back into Taurus, and yet again with Mercury’s station to direct motion on June 3rd. Mercury finally straightens out completely in another two weeks, escaping its retrograde shadow period by getting back to 5 Gemini, where it started.
So what do we do with all this wildly difficult, introspectively alive, transformational, and softly compassionate energy of this amazingly astrologically complicated May month? The answer to this question is that we do what we always do, shed our unuseful baggage and try our best to evolve into our true being, our most authentic and higher Self manifestation. We do this not just for ourselves, although, indeed, it is the major task before us, always, as we go through the mundane events of our highly scheduled timings. We do this for the rest of the planet as well. We might feel despair at the world situation, with plenty of fuel for that way of looking at things, and yet we can rest also in the assurance that when we do our best, the universe responds in kind, and that is really all that we can do. The universe is on our side; everything eventually turns out as it should, if only we can take a positive attitude to heart. As Longfellow put it over a century ago, when the world even then had its difficulties:
Let us then be up and doing
With a heart for any fate,
Still achieving still pursuing
Learn to labor, and to wait.

This is another big month for you, Aries, especially where your principles and values are concerned, with two eclipses and relationship events on your mind and in your heart. The New Moon eclipse just before the month began, on April 30th, reminded you that it’s what you do with what you’ve got that counts, on both the outside and the inside of your psyche, giving them, perhaps unexpectedly, equal weight. Your investigations into what is going on within you through dream images can be very full for you right now, and this contributes to your ongoing understanding of yourself received through the mirror of important relationships. When Mercury retrogrades on May 10th, these revelations take on an even more introspective character; it is a good time for meditation on the human condition, especially your own. The Full Moon eclipse of May 15th and the subsequent entrance of Mars into your sign brings it all back home, including issues of self and other and mystical revelations concerning progress, partners, and any traces of the internal wounding that might hold you back from the fullest perfection of your vision and its concrete manifestation.
The Solar Eclipse in Taurus from the very end of April represented a potent New Moon lunation coloring the entire May month, and which provided a powerful reset that could help you sort things out. What you want and feel pressured to do may be at polar opposites right now, so that this New Moon energy coming in could be just what the doctor ordered. With four planets still in Pisces at this New Moon configuration, representing your sector of inner process, energy for outer world events might be somewhat lacking, and you will undoubtedly be nudged toward paying more attention to what is going on inside. Uranus in your second solar sector implies continued fluctuations in finances and in your values. Anything is possible right now, and you may be able to gain something by taking a chance on thinking outside of the box, especially when it comes to your resources or what you attribute worth to, including yourself. You might need to raise your prices or assess your skills and what you have to offer to ensure that you are not undervaluing your services, a process that continues throughout the month.
When Venus enters your sign on May 2nd, it is good news for you. Venus relates to beauty, money, relationship, love, and value, and this will be a big theme for you this month. You may feel the urge to align more authentically with your desires, presenting you with new opportunities. After an extended period of reflection, you could feel ready to adopt a more abundant mindset, and it may be a great time to do so. You may be craving a certain level of comfort, but things could also feel somewhat uncertain, especially as the Sun conjuncts Uranus on the 5th.
A necessary changing of the guard takes place on May 10th when Mercury stations retrograde in Gemini, allowing you to revise your mode of thought and operations in the following weeks. Mercury retrograding, and then recovering, until the middle of June could allow you to make meaningful connections between what you say and what you want. You may have felt passive more recently instead of going after what you wish to do directly, but this could change. Jupiter also enters Aries on May 10th, which could help boost your confidence and have more faith in general. Jupiter will be in your sign until late October, which might prompt you to try new things or see the silver lining in your predicaments. Moving ahead with your goals might feel easier without worrying too much about worst-case scenarios.
The second eclipse of the season is the ScorpioFull Moon and Lunar Eclipse that occurs on May 15th. This could trigger some underlying anxieties or fears that may not entirely be based in reality. It may be an excellent opportunity to acknowledge that the transformation you may be seeking requires that you come clean about your fears before you can transcend them. It may be time to bridge the gap between your internal landscape and what you are trying to achieve in the world. This might relate to feeling unsafe, uprooted, or suspicious of other people's intentions. Or it may be that you struggle to reconcile the eccentric parts of yourself with your more conservative inclinations. Mars in Pisces conjoins with Neptune at the time of the eclipse, which may cast a hazy glow on your inner world. Finding ways to return to your body through your five senses and simplify your expectations could go a long way in making you feel grounded at this time.
On May 20th, the Sun's ingress into Gemini should bring more clarity in the coming weeks. Mercury meets the Sun in Gemini a day later on the 21st, which is usually considered an essential part of the Mercury Retrograde cycle; the usual symptoms of missed connections and mechanical breakdowns can be expected to accelerate. The weekend of May 20th could bring new ideas or robust solutions to recurring issues that might be easier to solve in the latter part of the month.
On May 24th, Mars enters Aries, which brings a tremendous amount of energy to your sign, and to identity issues, especially as it applies to a conjunction with Jupiter already moving through Aries. This could feel like a potent boost of energy, and you could start to feel a renewed sense of energy to go after what you want. You may have to keep in mind that although Mars and Jupiter in Aries will help you conquer many pre-existing roadblocks, you may also feel less patient with things that stand in your way. It might even be easier to work alone at this time or at least have enough space to do whatever it is that you most desire. This could be a particularly productive period, especially if you have the proper channels into which you can pour your energy and passions.
The New Moon in Gemini on May 30th brings renewal and potential positive developments that seemed impossible at the beginning of the month. You could gain concrete traction, especially with the proper planning. Keep your head high, and you may be surprised by what you can get done when you combine hard work with a positive attitude.
This is a rather amazing month for you, Taurus, with the New Moon eclipse that begins it right in your sign. This actually takes place on April 30th , and represents issues of identity and idealized future progress along with an emphasis on your public statement and your societal contribution. You may be seeing these important areas of your life in a new way. Recent changes in worldview have given you a new basis for taking deliberate and conscious action where you might have been operating subliminally, including partnerships and embodying your most sincere principles in all that you accomplish. From May 10th on, Mercury retrograding through first your sector of finances, resources, and values, and then subsequently through your identity sector, represented by the signs of Gemini and Taurus, signals a time of great introspection that lasts through to mid-June, when you will question many tendencies and patterns. With the Full Moon eclipse of May 15th you seek a degree of resolution regarding all of the above. Your relationships in particular come up for renewal, review, and revision, along with career commitment and greater reliance on what is fundamental and real for you as you evolve.
A Solar Eclipse took place in your sign at the very end of April, governing the current month, and this could bring a significant results for you during May in terms of issues of self-concept and putting your best foot forward. Since an eclipse, the effects of this lunation could last over the following months, including for things related to your needs and your overall mode of operation. Eclipses usually portend changes, and new storylines will tend to emerge over the next several months following an eclipse. You may be experiencing events or situations that push you back to yourself and what you truly want out of life. You might also be forced to acknowledge any compromises you have been making, which are perhaps not sustainable for your long-term happiness. This eclipse could thus be potentially pushing you towards greater autonomy.
Venus enters Aries on the 2nd and will be there for most of the month, illuminating desires and frustrations that could be hiding in the more unconscious parts of your psyche. Even though you might usually be known for your patience, you could feel a specific rebellious energy building up. The Sun is conjunct Uranus in Taurus for the first week of the month, which could bring some restlessness and a desire to break free from stifling influences in your life. Again, if you've been compromising too much, the energy calls for a recalibration at the beginning of May. It may be your opportunity to acknowledge some frustrated parts of you who are begging for more breathing room to explore and do as they please.
The First Quarter Moon in Leo late afternoon or evening on the 8th may highlight a situation where the tension could be channeled productively. This could relate to your home, family, or a domestic scenario that calls for your attention. A few days later, on the 10th, Mercury stations retrograde in Gemini, where it will be moving backward until the beginning of June. You may have to rethink your mode of operation and how you utilize the resources available to you at this time. More extensively, your sense of self-worth and the values you put on yourself may be highlighted, and it could be an excellent period to assess if you are being reimbursed fairly for your skills. Jupiter enters Aries late on the 10th, where it will be transiting until late October and illuminating your chart's soul sector. Your sense of faith and connection to the mystical aspects of existence could receive a boost. However, you may also have to wrestle between your material ambitions and your desire to surrender to more spiritual realms.
A second eclipse and Full Moon takes place on May 15th, in the sign of Scorpio, a Lunar Eclipse which might well bring up important relational dynamics. There may be a link between your dreams for the future and a meaningful partnership. Mars in Pisces rules over the sign of Scorpio and therefore rules over this Lunar Eclipse. Mars closely conjoins with Neptune mid-month, potentially creating some wishful thinking or deception. Be mindful of where you invest your energy and deliberate with your actions. Don't waste your time on something that is of no benefit to you or feels depleting. It may be wise to conserve your energy for what is essential at this time. There is a lot of momentum available for letting go of things that are stagnating or feel frustrating.
On May 20th, the Sun enters Gemini which helps ease the intensity that came with the eclipses since the beginning of May. Things will start to make sense as the Sun in Gemini illuminates your resources and values in the coming weeks. Mercury Retrograde in Gemini meets the Sun upon its entry into the sign of the Twins, which could bring essential answers related to your finances or what you have to work with. You may have a lot more power to make a dream come true than you realize, but you may have to deal with things threatening to stall your progress before you can experience the good things that are knocking at your door.
Mars enters Aries on the 24th, which is a significant ingress for you as it joins Jupiter and Venus there, and brings an emphasis on your previous sign of Aries. Your inner world might be calling out to you more forcibly and you could feel this impact quite strongly.
You could channel a lot of your frustrations or impatience into gaining more autonomy at this time, thanks to a beautiful New Moon in Gemini that occurs on the 30th. This could imply an increased desire for independence in the following weeks and less patience available for compromises. Festering anger is more likely if you try to keep the peace in a scenario. Set your intentions on your personal goals and your ambitions.
This is a month of contrasts for you Gemini, between public versus private, and inner versus outer experience. This is especially so as the powerful TaurusNew Moon eclipse from April 30th , influencing all of May, and beyond, is creating a strong pull to your sector of dream imagination and inner work. This is while your ruler, Mercury, just entered into your sign, emphasizes the way that you come across to others. Mercury stations retrograde on May 10th, and this signals a time of interior exploration that is made all the more intensely internal when Mercury retrogrades back into Taurus on May 22nd. This entire month is terrific for journaling and attempting to discern where you are heading. Meanwhile, also featured is your career sector, and nearby to that, elevated in your chart, we find the highlighted presence of transformative Pluto. Your worldview is inevitably shifting in this spring timeframe. This increasingly affects the way you see your work in the world as more completely connected to your inner vision and to your most cherished principles. That, indeed, might be a fruitful subject for the meditative framework of this rather internal May month.
The month of May begins just on the other side of a Solar Eclipse in Taurus, which signaled the beginning of eclipse season, considered by most astrologers to be a time of liminality. A second eclipse will occur mid-month in the opposite sign of Scorpio, which means that these first two weeks of the May month could be somewhat transitional.
Messenger planet Mercury has just entered Gemini, which may speed up your thinking and bring many new and unexpected ideas. However, Mercury is slowing down and preparing to station retrograde on the 10th, so it is best to keep that in mind when making plans. Things may seem to be heading in a particular direction, but many things could be up in the air. It might be ok to leave things open-ended right now, and it could even work in your favor.
Venus enters Aries at the beginning of the month, which may emphasize your dreams and aspirations in the following weeks. You might need to adjust your sails to move in a more aligned direction with your goals. More networking opportunities may be coming up that will help you move ahead in your career, but you may also have to deal with added responsibilities. The Sun conjunct Uranus in Taurus during the first week of the month could also make it harder for you to relax. You may be tempted to take your work home with you after your day is over or add more things to your to-do list. However, it might be more productive to clock out and take some time for unbridled fun.
The May 6th weekend could bring increased socializing with a positive aspect between Venus in Aries and Mercury in Gemini. You may be able to sort something out or gain a new perspective on a recurring dilemma by talking it through with a friend.
Mercury, your ruler, stations retrograde in the early degrees of your sign on May 10th, which could bring up profound reflections over the next three weeks on your overall direction, and what you truly want to get out of life. This retrograde period could be your chance to take a deeper look within yourself to gain some clarity regarding what you truly desire at this time.
Another type of changing of the guards also occurs on the 10th as Jupiter enters Aries, where it will be until late October. Jupiter in Aries may gradually emphasize your role within a community and bring new opportunities to teach or learn within your social sphere. You could also find a renewed sense of faith in your dreams and aspirations. However, you may have to shuffle your priorities to make space for some of these new perspectives and opportunities filtering in.
On May 15th, the second eclipse of this season occurs, this time a Lunar Eclipse in the sign of Scorpio, which may emphasize how you have been dealing with stress or things out of your control especially at work. Saturn, the planet of time and limitation, is squaring the eclipse, which could make you aware of your responsibilities and feel heavier than usual. You may not have the stamina to deal with your ambitions, or you may have to reassess how much energy you need to do your work versus how much energy you currently have.
The Sun's entry into Gemini on May 20th is excellent news and should start to bring a renewed sense of vitality to you in the coming weeks. Not even 24 hours after the Sun's entry into the sign of the Twins, Mercury in Gemini reaches the solar throne and disappears into the heart of the Sun. Mercury Cazimi is an integral part of the Mercury Retrograde cycle which usually comes with clarifications or answers. The weekend of May 20th could bring perspective and a renewed sense of faith. Even though you may feel like you need to pare down some of your responsibilities to create more time for you, there is a lot of potential emerging at this time.
The tempo increases significantly during the last full week of May, with Mars entering Aries on the 24th, which could offer robust support for your aspirations and dreams. The end of the month brings positive development, especially if you can find the proper balance between pursuing your goals and taking some time to rest and unwind.
The New Moon in you sign on the 30th signals the beginning of a new cycle that could help you realign to your body's needs. Mercury is nearing the end of its retrograde motion now, to be taking place on June 3rd , but after will be still straightening out, so to speak, until mid-June. This is a good couple of weeks for taking the time you need to recharge, and to address whatever might be stressing you out. Making the health of your body and mind a priority could ensure your success in the long run.
This is, Cancer, a vitally important month for you – punctuated by two eclipses – and it has everything to do with your prospective development and where you choose to put your shoulder to the wheel of social progress. The potent New Moon and Solar Eclipse of Saturday, April 30th, presages this, having taken place in your sector of societal involvement, to include friendships and group activities in your life as well as the way you see your future unfolding. This focus becomes integrated with a general emphasis on career and profession, modified by your evolving worldview. You are understanding more and more that what you do in the world must reflect your deepest values just as though you were the one in total control; and in a way, you are. Mercury retrograding for much of this month and the next lends an introspective air to the proceedings. With the mid-month Lunar Eclipse of Sunday, May 15th, relationships become more central. Your ongoing transformation of this significant area of your life is still an enormous factor now and for the remainder of the year.
Taurus season highlights your support group and the community of people who make you feel connected. They say that home is where the heart is but this could be a complicated equation these days with so many people you love living in different places. A Solar Eclipse in Taurus occurred at the end of April, corresponding to your sector of friendship, goals, and societal impact, which may bring an essential stimulus regarding your dreams and how they relate to the world you want to live in. You could set your vision on ambitious goals, and you could be craving learning experiences and encounters that serve as an initiation into different ways of living. This entire month of May, social consciousness might be the right term for you, especially after two years of pandemic-limited experience with that.
Venus enters Aries, gracing the career and vocational part of your chart until the end of the month. Your home life could also be indirectly connected, primarily if a career opportunity depends on your living arrangement. There could be many different possibilities of knocking at your door, and knowing what you want could be half the battle. Thanks to the Sun conjoined with the rebellious planet Uranus in Taurus, a certain amount of restlessness and unpredictability colors the first week of May. If you find yourself having a hard time making a choice, it might be best to wait until you feel certain about it. Things are in a state of flux this month, and there may be other opportunities you are not seeing right now.
Mercury stations retrograde in Gemini on the 10th, calling for a pause and a re-assessment in the following weeks. Jupiter enters Aries on the same day, where it will be transiting until late October and will most likely be fanning the flames of your ambitions. Taking your time with important decisions at this time could ensure that you can adequately channel the positive influences that Jupiter in Aries may bring to your vocational goals in the following months.
On the 15th, a Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio takes place, which may bring attention to the sacrifice needed to follow a dream. You may realize that you may have to forgo something else to get what you want. This could be an important marker so pay attention to what comes mid-month, especially when it comes to your collaborations with others and your creative output in the world. A natural process of evolution may be taking place that relates to how you use your knowledge for the greater good. It may be time to put yourself out there in new ways, but you may first have to let go of attachments or projects that could be taking a lot of your energy with very little return.
On May 20th, the Sun enters Gemini which signals the beginning of a more introspective period. It could be beneficial to take a step back and take stock of where you are before Cancer season begins in one month. However, you may not be able to put everything on hold as your social life, goals, and long-term projects call for attention. Mercury Retrograde conjunct the Sun in Gemini on the 21st, which is considered an essential part of Mercury's retrograde cycle. You may get some meaningful answers, especially regarding how you feel about the current changes occurring in your life. You may have the ability to understand parts of yourself that operate on a more unconscious level, and this may allow you to choose what needs to happen next.
The last week of May could bring illuminations related to your aspirations and the learning experiences that you crave. However, if a difficult choice needs to happen between following your goals or keeping the status quo in a relationship, then tension could come up.
Venus in Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn on the 27th and this may highlight pre-existing conflicts. Venus entering Taurus the following day should help smooth things over, but you may still have to do more soul-searching before you are at peace with what you want.
A New Moon in Gemini takes place on the 30th, closing the month of May, corresponding to the part of your chart that relates to your unconscious process. With Mercury still retrograde you might find yourself being pulled even more to the inside. There is a new cycle beginning relating to that, and potentially to a new take as well on your dreams and aspirations. You will have to get to the heart of your motivations and make space for your curiosity, and hopes for the future over the following weeks.
This is another important month, Leo, perhaps a turning point in terms of your work in the world and its intentionality. The eclipse New Moon of April 30th, takes place in your sector public statement in your solar chart, presaging a tremendous focus on career and profession as the month continues to unwind, and potentially for many weeks thereafter. Your worldview itself is in flux. Mercury retrogrades on May 10th, and you will enter into an introspective time, when you will be asking yourself questions about future plans and possibilities, and as well the deeper meaning of your friendships and social connections. A shift in emphasis by the fourth weekend of the month has you reviewing and reassessing career decisions along with their societal impact, with Mercury lasting in this internalized flavor until mid-June. Meanwhile, in the current month, the May 15th Lunar Eclipse of the third weekend is big juju for you as well, bringing issues of relationship regarding commitment versus isolation more thoroughly into the picture of what you are getting into. You are also extremely focused on the evolutionary progress that you are making all though this remarkable month.

This juncture could serve as a wake-up call that helps you return to your personal goals.

Jupiter will be in Aries until late October, which should feel energizing for Leos.

Learning and traveling could come up, so keep an open mind as to what is possible.
The ScorpioFull Moon and Lunar Eclipse takes place on May 15th, bringing considerable tension thanks to a T-square to Saturn in your opposite sign of Aquarius.

The tension felt at this time could be used as a pivot to move forward. However, you may have to first wrestle with the shadowy parts of yourself that threaten to derail your success. Old and stubborn emotional patterns around feelings of safety could surface to be exorcized, and it is a good time to do so.

Your worldview and beliefs are shifting, as well as your commitment to the idea of pushing your own deepest principles over and above what conventional thinking would dictate. Career and profession are also on your mind, and subject to review and potential revision, enormously accelerated by the retrograde of Mercury, your ruler, on May 10th. This alters in its impact on the 22nd, and again with Mercury’s station to direct motion on June 3rd, finally fading along with Mercury’s shadow by mid-June. Concurrently, issues of intimacy might also surface, perhaps connected to inner wounding stemming from early childhood when parental admonitions could have been misapplied. These are now subject to closer examination, acceptance and ultimate healing. Relationship concerns in general are an additional continued focus with the distinct possibility to be reckoned with of over-idealization or even self-deception. All in all, this is an invaluable time for independent thinking, also for journaling or discussion regarding the very depths of your psyche. You are seeking personal evolution that leads you toward a better and more fruitful integration of mind, soul, and body.
The May month begins astrologically with the TaurusNew Moon on the last day of April, which is also an eclipse. This may bring opportunities for learning or travel in the coming weeks. New perspectives or possibilities could be streaming in, and surprising avenues might open up through one of your partnerships.

Venus leaves the sign of Pisces at the beginning of May to enter Aries, which might make you also more aware of your commitments in the following weeks.

However, you might also have to ensure that your personal needs are met to avoid pent-up frustrations down the road.
The Sun in Taurus perfects his conjunction with Uranus on the 4th and 5th, and this could bring new opportunities out of the blue at the end of the first week of the month. However, things could come to a standstill near May 8th as the First Quarter Moon in Leo shines a light on unconscious or hidden patterns, potentially bringing tension to the surface. You could feel as if a piece of the puzzle is missing, and this could keep you from fully launching yourself forward at this time. Trust your gut feeling, especially if something doesn't feel right, and wait until you have more information.
Mercury stations retrograde in Gemini on May 10th, signaling the beginning of a revision period that will take you to the beginning of June, which may be connected to your overall direction, career path, and, more extensively, what you want. It's your cue to assess the available resources and what kind of debt you are willing to take on in the coming months, whether these are financial or contractual. Jupiter enters Aries just as Mercury turns retrograde in Gemini, which brings a change of focus during the second week of May. Things could feel more personal and choices loaded with underlying responsibilities that you may or may not be willing to take on.
On May 15th, a Lunar Eclipse takes place in the sign of Scorpio, which may bring attention to complicated dynamics playing out in your partnerships that could put pressure on your schedule and other commitments. It could feel harder to communicate clearly, and you might have trouble getting your point across. You could secretly hope for others to anticipate your needs, or you may have a more challenging time formulating what you want into words. If possible, it may be easier to put negotiations on hold, especially if it doesn't seem to be getting anywhere. Mars in Pisces rules the eclipse Moon in Scorpio and is conjoined with Neptune in the days surrounding the eclipse, which brings a certain amount of idealization or disillusion depending on how you handle this aspect. Saturn in Aquarius is squared by the eclipse and this could bring a sharp contrast between what you hope for and what reality delivers at this time. It is possible to be realistic without losing faith or becoming cynical. Still, it may require that you accept yourself and others with all the quirks and idiosyncrasies that come with your experience.
On May 20th, the Sun's entry into Gemini will highlight your career, goals, and vocational trajectory in the following weeks. Mercury is still retrograde in Gemini and conjoins the Sun on the 21st.

The weekend of May 20th could bring unforeseen support from a close collaborator, and you could start to see the benefits of teaming up with someone.

Venus also enters Taurus at the end of the month, which may bring a supportive influence for travel and learning until late June.
This is another month of other orientation, Libra, although the diamond in the situation is that you will in no way be neglecting your own self-development while you attend to your partnership dynamic and issues of intimacy. It is a truism that relationship provides the most perfect mirror for better understanding yourself, and this is your month to take advantage of this as you pursue your own transformational agenda. The eclipse New Moon of April 30th signals bold new intentions on both of these important fronts, while the follow-up Lunar Eclipse of May 15th with Mercury also retrograde emphasizes a significant movement toward the fulfillment of your ideas regarding self and other. This latter powerful mid-May juncture also references major steps toward finding your way forward into new territory. This is especially so with regard to inner wounding that could have been holding you back from the greatest embodiment of your most authentic self. And this is also with regard to explorations of more fulfilled partnership and your own coming-out party as embracing to a far greater extent, in spite of all temptations to submit to consensus thinking, the gold of your own most sincere truth.
Due to the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Taurus from the end of April, starting off the May month with a brand new and extra potent lunation, intimacy, shared responsibilities, and resources could be on your mind this month.

Certain unpredictable factors could be out of your control, and things could feel in a state of flux.
The Sun in Taurus also conjoins with the rebellious planet Uranus for the first week of the month, which might be creating instability within your most solid alliances.

Jupiter will be in Aries until the end of October and might bring some change of perspective regarding the crucial people in your life and what you need from them.
The Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio on May 15th constitutes another quite potent lunation that could highlight some of the logistical tension you have had to handle most recently. Dividing your time between necessary obligations and much-needed personal time may continue to feel complicated. Saturn in Aquarius squared by the eclipse Sun and Moon could bring to your attention a need to be more deliberate about your energy investments. If something is draining you emotionally or financially, it should become apparent towards the middle of the month. However, Mars in Pisces conjoined Neptune in the Full Moon configuration could also create some confusion about where you should be investing yourself. Venus in Aries conjoins with Chiron in the eclipse chart, potentially pointing the finger at vulnerabilities or old relationship wounds. You may not be able to do much about it except acknowledge the inherent insecurities that could be informing your relational patterns.
