                           Aries
Making money is art and working is art and good business is the best art.
— Andy Warhol

Aries, you have awakened a whole new self since Uranus started transiting your sign seven years ago. It’s been a complete reinvention, and there’s no going back now. Now, Uranus in Taurus is about to awaken your value consciousness. What I mean by this is your set of values, especially your relationship to money and possessions. Making money and doing good business could become an art for you with Uranus here. You may find inventive ways of attracting more money to you, saving, and investing it. You might even be on the cutting edge of blockchain technology, and any other economic innovations Uranus helps us come up with over the next eight years. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this. Money is a neutral energy you can tap into, but our society weighs it down with all kinds of judgment and baggage. Your newfound money consciousness can be a very good thing! You could also decide that you want to place more value on the things money can’t buy: re-wilding the environment or championing feminist values make perfect sense for this transit. However you approach this, you’re radically reinventing your value system over the next eight years.

May begins on the heels of that heady Scorpio full moon on April 29th. A lingering sense of mystery prevails over the beginning of the month. Mars and Pluto are still conjunct in Capricorn, although they are separating. You are aware by now of a desire for transformation in your vocation. The cardinal squaring from April continues as well, with Mercury square Pluto on May 7th and Mars on the 12th. You are challenged to speak up at work, perhaps even to speak truth to those higher up than you. Empower yourself to use your voice. The sun opposite Jupiter on the 8th gives you a preview of Uranus in Taurus, showing you how you might attract more money this year. On the 11th, the sun trines Pluto, suggesting that confidence translates as power to people watching, especially in your career.

On May 13th, Mercury meets Uranus at the very last degree of Aries, sending a brilliant last flash of insight about the New You. He may leave you with a potent idea to express. In Taurus, Mercury readies conditions for commerce. For Mercury here, business really is an art. He’ll help you make decisions according to your values. Two days later, on the 15th, Uranus follows Mercury into Taurus, and we have a new moon in that same sign. As the new moon is traditionally a time for setting intentions and planting seeds, think about how you want your 8-year Uranus reinvention cycle to look. Who do you want to be at the end of it? What will your relationship to money look like? What things of value will you have? Hold that vision in your mind as you start a whole new era.

This new moon is extremely active, so you don’t really get to ease into it. You’ll be getting started right away! Mars enters Aquarius on May 16th, immediately squaring Uranus in Taurus. Mars in Aquarius is driven to rebel and reform. He’s quite innovative, confident in his new ideas, and ready to convince people of them. You’ll feel inspired to speak your mind now, connecting with others in your community and possibly even leading them. Uranus in Taurus is all about freeing your value system, so this aspect pushes you to put your values into action right away. This square lasts until June 15th. The first month of Uranus’ transit through Taurus will awaken you to the restrictions of your old value system.

Mercury trine Saturn on the 18th suggests that hard work in your career is paying off. Venus moves into Cancer on the 19th, inviting you to replenish yourself at home. Time spent with home and family nourishes you after achieving so much at work. Soothe your soul with some good food and the company of people you love. Venus squares Chiron on the 20th, challenging you to be honest about your vulnerability. You don’t have to be a strong warrior all the time. Let other people take care of you.

Any down time you can get really helps, because are still opportunities keeping you busy. The sun trine Mars on the 23rd suggests supportive conversations with community members, while Mercury opposite Jupiter could help you see commercial opportunities. On the 25th, Mercury trine Pluto speaks of yet another powerful career performance. Venus opposes Saturn on the 26th, making your conflicts between work and home very clear. Your vocational duties are still pulling you away from family more than you would like. Do your best to balance your time.

Jupiter trine Neptune supports deep healing all month, as you sort through private emotions. These water transits are right on time for you, after so much fire and earth. You’ve been very public lately. Jupiter and Neptune beckon you to retreat and find solitude. This trine is technically exact on May 25th, but both planets are within one degree of each other for the entire week of May 20 - 27. The aspect will become an even more stable grand water trine with Venus in Cancer starting May 28th (exact June 1st). Love from family members supports you as you heal from potential losses and endings.

Mercury moves into Gemini, the sign of his rulership, on May 29th. Mercury here gifts you with fresh ideas, an intelligent wit, and fun conversations. Reading, writing, teaching, and learning are all supported in this cycle. Try something new while Mercury is here. We end the month with a full moon in Sagittarius on the same day. This one beckons you to travel and adventure. A vacation would be the perfect thing for the end of May or beginning of June! Take some time off work if you can. If you can’t, explorations of your neighborhood, spiritual activities, or taking a class could fulfill your need for adventure. You’re radically reconsidering how you want to spend your time and money. Make an art out of it.

Reinvention is no rushed religion.
— Erica Alex

Taurus, with Uranus moving into your sign this month, you are ripe for a reinvention. Uranus and Taurus are an interesting pair: the planet of sudden, lightening-bolt style changes and the sign of slow, steady growth. Even with Uranus here, you will not allow your reinvention to be rushed. The gift is that, for the next six months, you’ll have the electric motivation of the changemaker in your sign, giving you that bodily goosebump kind of intuition. You know who you are now. The creative project of remaking yourself in this cycle is eight years long. You’ve got time to do it right.

May starts out with the sun in your sign squaring the nodes, a hangover from that heady Scorpio full moon on April 29th. The cardinal squaring from April continues in the first week as well, with Mercury square Pluto exactly on May 7th. Your imagination has you wandering into distant, even dangerous, territory. Don’t let fear stop you from exploring the wilderness. Mercury echoes this aspect by squaring Mars on May 12th, giving you the energy to continue your wandering.

Venus square Neptune, also exact on the 7th, makes you feel confident, possibly to the point of delusion. For those who struggle with confidence, that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Pretend until it’s real. The sun opposes Jupiter on May 8th, and because they’re both friendly, they still work together. The dance you do with another person is in a constant state of motion, shifting and rebalancing. A friendship or partnership is blossoming. Let it continue to grow. On May 11th, the sun in your sign trine Pluto in Capricorn signifies further support for your transformation. Just in time for Uranus’ big entrance.

First, on May 13th, Mercury meets Uranus at the very last degree of Aries, sending a brilliant last message in a flash of insight before he moves into your sign. With Mercury in your first house and Venus in Gemini, you benefit from a temporary mutual reception by transit. Words, images, and music all come to you more easily and rapidly with this channel open. Then, on May 15th, we start a new lunar cycle with a new moon in your sign. This is your reset new moon, not least because Uranus enters Taurus on the same day! As the new moon is traditionally a time for setting intentions and planting seeds, think about how you want your 8-year Uranus reinvention cycle to look. Who do you want to become at the end of it? Hold that vision in your mind as you start a whole new era.

This new moon is extremely active, so you don’t really get to ease into it. You’ll be getting started right away! Mars enters Aquarius on May 16th, immediately squaring Uranus in Taurus from the very top of your chart. Mars in Aquarius is driven to rebel and reform. He’s quite innovative, confident in his new ideas, and ready to convince others of them. Uranus in Taurus is all about freeing your true self, so this aspect pushes you to run free. You will immediately be challenged to bring your self-image into reconciliation with your vocation, or at least what you used to think your vocation was. This square lasts until June 15th, so it’s a longer aspect. This first month of Uranus’ transit through Taurus will be teaching you where you feel hemmed in. If it makes you feel uncharacteristically impulsive, rely on your steady Taurean instincts to guide you. Remember: your reinvention shall not be rushed.

With all of these high-intensity aspects, Taurus, it’s a blessing to have Venus move into Cancer on May 19th. The fourth week of May gives you a cool drink of water to quench your thirst and soothe you in the midst of these hot transits. Venus in Cancer prompts you to explore the beauty of places nearby and satiate your curiosity with some nourishing knowledge. She makes a friendly sextile to your sign, which means that she makes an immediate sextile to Uranus. Your curiosity is likely to be fueled by your new quest for absolute freedom. She also squares Chiron in Aries on the 20th, prodding you to release the authentic being inside of you.

Jupiter’s trine to Neptune is technically exact on May 25th, but both planets are within 1 degree of each other for the entire week of May 20 - 27. Relationships with partners, friends, and your wider community nourish you at this time. Wishes may even come true! This aspect will become an even more stable grand water trine with Venus in Cancer starting May 28th (exact June 1st). With Mercury opposing Jupiter on May 23rd, make sure you’re communicating openly with others, as this will bring the biggest blessings.

The month ends with a full moon in Sagittarius on May 29th, one that beckons you to explore deeper into mystery. The fires of transformation have been lit, and they’re not dying down anytime soon. Mercury enters Gemini, the sign of his rulership, on the day of the full moon, reminding you of all the talents you possess. Look for new ways you could make money just being yourself. There is no rush to get there immediately; no destination that won’t lead you to a new path. The changes are already in motion.

I address you all tonight for who you truly are: wizards, mermaids, travelers, adventurers, and magicians. You are the true dreamers.
— Brian Selznick, The Invention of Hugo Cabret

Gemini, Uranus moving into Taurus is the final stage of a big cycle for you. For the next eight years, you’re in a radical process of becoming. Uranus will plant the seeds of wild dreams in your mind, weed out old versions of yourself, and allow your individuality to flourish. You’re about to encounter the wilderness within. You see, Uranus addresses you for who you truly are. The adventurer, the wizard, the magician underneath will start to come out into the open.

May begins on the heels of that heady Scorpio full moon on April 29th. The cardinal squaring from April continues as well, with Mercury square Pluto on May 7th, and Mars on the 10th. You’re meeting people who can aid you in your transformation.  Mars-Saturn and Mars-Pluto in April tested your resolve and showed you what needed to go. Also on May 7th, Venus square Neptune has you dreaming about your ideal career. Dream away; just make sure that you have fully considered your choices before you take action. Neptune in your tenth house is offering you the opportunity to enchant your own life, long-term. These two can also cause confusion and over-romanticization, so trust in your intuition when choosing. Consulting your most grounded and trustworthy friends may help as well.

Your daily, gradual grind of transformation continues with the sun’s opposition to Jupiter on May 8th and his trine to Pluto on the 11th. There’s a lot of fixed, earthy energy in 2018. It may feel weighty at times, but it serves to keep you from floating off into the ether. For this month at least, Uranus in Taurus gives you all of the excitement you need. First, on May 13th, Mercury meets Uranus at the very last degree of Aries, sending a brilliant last message, possibly from a member of the quirky, innovative community you’ve been building in the past seven years. Once Mercury is in Taurus, with Venus in Gemini, you benefit from a brief mutual reception by transit. Your thoughts, feelings, and sense of self are more embodied than usual, and more internally focused. You have a sense of Realness that may make you feel less flighty in the third week of May, despite all that’s going on. 

On the day Uranus enters Taurus, we have a new moon in that same sign. As the new moon is traditionally a time for setting intentions and planting seeds, think about how you want your 8-year Uranus reinvention cycle to look. Who do you want to become at the end of it? What would you let go of, what secrets would you go public with, what worlds would you imagine? Hold that vision in your mind as you start a whole new era. This new moon is extremely active, so you don’t really get to ease into it. You’ll be getting started right away! Mars enters Aquarius on May 16th, immediately squaring Uranus in Taurus. Mars in Aquarius is driven to rebel and reform. He’s quite innovative, confident in his new ideas, and ready to convince others of them. Uranus in Taurus is all about freeing your mind, so this aspect pushes you to imagine even greater possibilities. You will immediately be challenged to explore new and wild ideas. This square lasts until June 15th, so it’s a longer aspect. This first month of Uranus’ transit through Taurus will be teaching you how to expand your imagination beyond borders you weren’t even aware of.

Mercury is immediately busy making aspects from Taurus too. He forms an alliance with the master of stability, Saturn in Capricorn, on May 18th, helping you to structure your explorations. On May 19th, Mercury makes an exact square to the moon’s nodes, reminding you that attention to daily rituals will expand the possibilities rather than restrict them. Luckily, some transits in water signs in the fourth week of May help to nourish you through this internal deconstruction/reconstruction. Venus moves into Cancer on the 19th, suggesting that it’s high time for some self-care. Swimming, spas, baths, and/or visits to rivers, lakes, and oceans will connect you with spirit. Her square to Chiron on the 20th suggests that you will benefit from bolstering your self-worth through connection. Also on the 20th, the sun enters your sign! The beginning of your birthday season energizes you to make fresh starts.

Jupiter’s trine to Neptune is technically exact on May 25th, but both planets are within 1 degree of each other for the entire week of May 20 - 27. This is beautiful support for turning your days into a magical life: think of the Neptunian life enchantment I referred to earlier. This aspect will become an even more stable grand water trine with Venus in Cancer starting May 28th (exact June 1st). The end of May is a wonderful time to answer your calling. You may receive support for your vocation. You are one of the true dreamers, after all. Mercury’s aspects to Neptune and Jupiter on the 22nd support you in manifesting dreams. The sun makes a trine to Mars on the 23rd, encouraging you to wander roads less travelled.

Mercury makes a trine to Pluto on the 25th, digging up images from your deep subconscious, before moving into Gemini on the 29th. The trickster planet operates best in Gemini and Virgo, so this is excellent news for you. All of your natural intelligence, wit, and curiosity are on full display. We end the month with a full moon in Sagittarius on the same day. The fires are lit in your realm of partnership and friendship. Someone else is playing a major role in your life. It’s a friendly full moon for forging alliances with fellow adventurers. Best of luck on your quest.

Life’s under no obligation to give us what we expect.
— Margaret Mitchell

Cancer, Uranus in Taurus comes bearing gifts. You might have no idea what they are until they arrive, suddenly, on your doorstep. Taurus is the sign in your house of receiving, where we place our wishes and sometimes find that they come true, and where we find communities who love us for who we are. Uranus is the modern ruler of the eleventh house, but Uranus and Taurus are an interesting pairing--the planet of sudden, lightening-bolt style changes and the sign of slow, steady growth. You are the most likely candidate for beginning an eight-year cycle of radical activism: environmental, feminist, or economic. A rebel leader re-wilding the world with fellow Uranians. If that doesn’t sound like you, you could be surprised. After all, you just spent the last seven years totally reinventing your career and public image. Did you think you would be where you are now?

May begins on the heels of that heady Scorpio full moon on April 29th, just brimming with creativity. The cardinal squaring from April spills over into May as well, with Mercury square Pluto on April 7th and Mars on the 12th. The tension between career and partnerships is not over. You’re refreshing things at work, and therefore perhaps the way you work with clients or business partners. It may have been difficult with Pluto and Mars in Capricorn, but stick with your plan for change. Chiron in Aries is showing you how to stop hiding. Sometimes that means disappointing other people, and that’s just a given. You’re forming alliances with the ones who will love where you’re going together.

The other aspects in the second week of May are less intense. Venus squares Neptune on the 7th, suggesting explorations of a romantic, imaginative nature. The sun opposite Jupiter on the 8th speaks of creative births, as Jupiter in Scorpio has been inspiring you for some time now. On the 11th, the sun makes a trine to Pluto, supporting the formation of partnerships with community members who really get you.

On May 13th, Mercury meets Uranus at the very last degree of Aries, sending a brilliant last message regarding your career zeitgeist before moving into Taurus to help you form connections. Uranus follows on the 15th, and on the same day, we have a new moon in Taurus. As the new moon is traditionally a time for setting intentions and planting seeds, think about how you want your 8-year Uranus reinvention cycle to look. Who do you want to become at the end of it? What are you wishing for? What kinds of brilliant, wild people do you hope to hang out with? Hold that vision in your mind as you start a whole new era.

This new moon is extremely active , so you don’t really get to ease into it. You’ll be getting started right away! Mars enters Aquarius on May 16th, immediately squaring Uranus in Taurus. Mars in Aquarius is driven to rebel and reform. He’s quite innovative, confident in his new ideas, and ready to convince others of them. Uranus in Taurus is all about freeing yourself socially, so this aspect pushes you to muster all your resources and let go of old, encumbering pain. You will immediately be challenged to bring your whole self forward, including your questioning mind and your private musings. This square lasts until June 15th, so it’s a longer aspect. This first month of Uranus’ transit through Taurus will be teaching you how to find the wild ones.

It’s a comfort for you that Venus enters your sign on May 19th, blessing you with her beauty, charm, and grace as you venture out of your shell. Spend some time on your image to help yourself feel more confident when you go out. Venus squares Chiron on the 20th, indicating some trepidation about putting yourself in the spotlight. Luckily, Jupiter in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces provide some soft water aspects to support you through these big transits. Jupiter’s trine to Neptune is technically exact on May 25th, but both planets are within one degree of each other for the entire week of May 20 - 27. This aspect will become an even more stable grand water trine with Venus in Cancer starting May 28th (exact June 1st). The end of May is a lovely time for you to experiment with self-expression and show others what you can do.

The sun enters Gemini on May 20th, activating your imagination and beginning a season of fresh ideas. You may seek some solitude to balance all of the socializing you’re doing this month. On May 26th, Venus in your sign opposes Saturn in Capricorn. This suggests some difficulties with a partnership or friendship. You may be burdened with duty when you would rather play. The commitment will work as long as you recognize your own lovability. All the more reason to balance your commitments with time alone.

On May 29th, Mercury enters Gemini, the sign of his rulership, enlivening your imagination even more. Messages come through dreams and in other psychic ways. Fresh ideas float in on the breeze. We end the month with a full moon in Sagittarius on the same day. This moon calls you to make your daily life an adventure. Sagittarius and Gemini can’t stand monotony. Explore new rituals in the realms of health, work, and spirituality. This moon is trine the north node in Leo, suggesting that such explorations could pay off. You are becoming an expert in the unexpected. Open up to receive what the future has to offer.

 
Leo.jpg
You have a right to experiment with your life. You will make mistakes. And they are right too. No, I think there was too rigid a pattern. You came out of an education and are supposed to know your vocation. Your vocation is fixed, and maybe ten years later you find you are not a teacher anymore or you’re not a painter anymore. It may happen. It has happened. I mean Gauguin decided at a certain point he wasn’t a banker anymore; he was a painter. And so he walked away from banking. I think we have a right to change course. But society is the one that keeps demanding that we fit in and not disturb things. They would like you to fit in right away so that things work now.
— Anaïs Nin

Leo, Uranus is moving into Taurus to help you experiment with your life this month. You’ve spent the last seven years of Uranus in Aries exploring new places, innovative ideas, and unconventional philosophies. Now the changemaker is moving into your house of vocation, to help you take what you’ve learned and use it to shake up your career. Uranus and Taurus are an interesting pair: the planet of sudden, lightening-bolt style changes and the sign of slow, steady growth. You don’t have to fit it all together right away for the benefit of other people. This is an eight-year cycle of experimenting and reinventing who you are, making the perfect mistakes along the way.

May begins on the heels of that heady Scorpio full moon on April 29th. You’re already in a cycle of changing direction, especially with Jupiter in Scorpio this year. The cardinal squaring from April continues too, with Mercury square Pluto on May 7th and Mars on the 11th. You made it through Mars-Saturn and Mars-Pluto in Capricorn, a series of aspects that redefined “daily grind” for you last month. Now you alchemize that experience into knowledge that you can use. Mercury could bring a message with powerful spiritual insight. On May 8th, the sun opposes Jupiter, highlighting your axis of direction once again. Home is changing for you. Big opportunities are arriving. You’re just trying to keep up. The sun makes a trine to Pluto on the 11th, providing support for important adjustments at work.

Mid-month is the big ingress of Uranus into your tenth house. First, on May 13th, Mercury meets Uranus at the very last degree of Aries, sending a brilliant final message in a flash of philosophical insight before shifting into Taurus. Mercury in Taurus helps you think carefully about your career and how you present yourself to the public. Uranus makes his entrance on May 15th, and on the same day, we have a new moon in Taurus. As the new moon is traditionally a time for setting intentions and planting seeds, think about how you want your 8-year Uranus reinvention cycle to look. Who do you want to become at the end of it? What would you be known for? What would you accomplish? Hold that vision in your mind as you start a whole new era.

This new moon is extremely active, so you don’t really get to ease into it. You’ll be getting started right away! Mars enters Aquarius on May 16th, immediately squaring Uranus in Taurus and opposing your sign. Mars in Aquarius is driven to rebel and reform. He’s quite innovative, confident in his new ideas, and ready to convince others of them. This could represent someone in your life with their own opinions on your choices. Uranus in Taurus is all about liberating yourself to do what you want, so this aspect pushes you to reconcile a relationship with your own need for freedom of expression. This square lasts until June 15th, so it’s a longer aspect. This first month of Uranus’ transit through Taurus will be teaching you how to be yourself and love another.

On May 19th, Mercury squares the north node in your sign and south node in Aquarius. This happens any time a planet moves through Taurus or Scorpio these days, and (you guessed it) it puts more emphasis on your choice of direction. Self-expression is always key for you, but it’s especially key with the north node in your sign. The path forward is to be yourself. Sometimes that’s easier said than done; most of us spend our whole lives figuring out who that is. You have the right to experiment with it. Venus enters Cancer on the same day, bringing nourishing waters to your interior life. Beautiful dreams and works of imagination are possible while Venus is here. You may enjoy solitude at home especially. Venus squares Chiron on the 20th, reminding you of some private wounds that need healing around your freedom to learn and explore. Also on the 20th, the sun enters the friendly sign of Gemini. Venus helps you make a habit of resting so that you can enjoy an especially social season. While the sun is here, you get busy connecting with other people.

Jupiter in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces form a supportive trine to help you with the destabilizing force of Uranus. This is technically exact on May 25th, but both planets are within 1 degree of each other for the entire week of May 20 - 27. The mystery is in action; your life is expanding. This aspect will become an even more stable grand water trine with Venus in Cancer starting May 28th (exact June 1st). It’s operating on a private level, like an ever-flowing river you can count on to sustain you.

On May 29th, Mercury enters Gemini, the sign of his rulership, and your social life gets even more of a boost. Mercury here makes you especially chatty, intelligent, curious, and interesting to other people in your community. We end the month with a full moon on the same day, in your fellow fire sign of Sagittarius. This is yet another open invitation to express yourself. The moon makes a trine to the north node in your sign, opening the road for creativity, play, and join. The month couldn’t end on a better note for you! As your life shifts in unexpected ways, think of it like experiment. It doesn’t have to be fixed. Play around and see what happens.

 
Virgo.jpg
Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity.
— John Muir, Our National Parks

Virgo, Uranus into Taurus is about to call you on some wild adventures. Uranus in this sign is the wilderness, and when he’s in your house of exploration, wildness becomes a necessity. Because Taurus is an earth sign too, this is a supportive eight-year cycle of expansion. You will be growing in unexpected ways, traveling to places where you may never have thought you’d go, and learning the most unusual things. You may even be the voice of Uranus in Taurus, teaching others about eco-feminism, new forms of currency, innovative farming techniques, and re-wilding the land. If you’re not really a nature type or much of a traveler, you could be doing some wild investing. Or, who knows, you may surprise yourself. This is a long-term cycle, and even with Uranus involved, Taurus doesn’t move that fast. You’ve got time to see this unfold.

May begins on the heels of that heady Scorpio full moon on April 29th. The cardinal squaring from April continues as well, with Mercury square Pluto on May 7th and Mars on the 12th.  The alchemy of transforming old pain into creative self-expression and love is ongoing. Venus squares Neptune on the 7th as well, creating some tension in communication with a friend or partner around your career. Make sure you understand what the other person wants. Neptune can be vague; assuming you know is likely to lead you off track. Ideally, a significant other will help you shine. On May 11th, the sun trine Pluto creates another grand earth trine with your sign, creating stable ground for you to stand on as you express yourself in powerful ways.

On May 13th, Mercury meets Uranus at the very last degree of Aries, sending a brilliant flash of insight about your self-liberation. Mercury in Taurus helps you study up, giving you the curiosity and stamina to learn about new subjects. Uranus enters Taurus on the 15th, just hours after a new moon in that same sign. As the new moon is traditionally a time for setting intentions and planting seeds, think about how you want your 8-year Uranus reinvention cycle to look. Where do you want to go? What would you like to learn? What does freedom look like to you? Hold that vision in your mind as you begin a whole new era.

This new moon is extremely active, so you don’t really get to ease into it. You’ll be getting started right away! Mars enters Aquarius on May 16th, immediately squaring Uranus in Taurus. Mars in Aquarius is driven to rebel and reform. He’s quite innovative, confident in his new ideas, and ready to convince others of them. You may feel this way at work, as you try to reconcile daily necessities with your sudden longing for far-flung destinations. You will immediately be challenged to shake up your routine, reforming your daily life to make room for more wildness. This square lasts until June 15th, so it’s a longer aspect. This first month of Uranus’ transit through Taurus will be teaching you to think differently.

Venus enters Cancer on the 19th, blessing your house of community with her presence. You are especially sensitive to others when Venus is here. With Venus in Cancer, you’re good at caring for and connecting to people, and receiving love in return. Venus square Chiron on the 20th challenges you to feel worthy of the gifts you receive. The sun enters Gemini on the 20th as well, highlighting the top of your chart and making you even more visible. Others see your accomplishments. Mercury’s opposition to Jupiter on the 23rd gives you big ideas to communicate, and his trine to Pluto on the 25th provides more of that grounded earth energy to support your self-expression.

Jupiter in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces send good vibes for relationships this month. Jupiter’s trine to Neptune is technically exact on May 25th, but both planets are within 1 degree of each other for the entire week of May 20 - 27. This aspect will become an even more stable grand water trine with Venus in Cancer starting May 28th (exact June 1st).

And since Gemini is at the very top of your chart, other people can see how your words sparkle. We end the month with a full moon in Sagittarius on the same day. This full moon is at the bottom of your chart, highlighting home, family, the past, and the foundations of your identity. You’re going to the mountains to go home now, whether it’s a literal trip to the wilderness or a shift you make to invite more wild, unexpected fun into your life. This month makes you feel restless. Say goodbye to old pain and boring routines, and open yourself to novel experiences. Bon voyage!

You can’t expect anyone to trust revelation if he hasn’t experienced it himself. Those who haven’t only know reason. And since revelation is a thing apart, and cannot be accounted for reasonably, they never will believe you. This is the great division of the world and always has been. When reason and revelation run together, why, then you have something great, a great age.
— Mark Helprin, Winter's Tale

Libra, Uranus into Taurus begins a cycle of private revelation for you. The word comes from the Latin revelare: to lay bare. Over the course of the next eight years, mysteries will be laid bare before you. You may delve into spirituality, magic, and the supernatural and find that revelation and reason start to run together for you…but don’t expect anyone to believe you who hasn’t experienced this themselves. Taurus is an especially tangible sign, making it likely that your experiences will take place at the axis of spirit and matter. You have the power to manifest your will into being with this transit. More “reasonable” revelations could include surprising disclosures about your finances, or an unexpected urge to experiment with your sexuality. Uranus never makes any promises about what’s going to happen. Just look at the surprises he threw your way over the last seven years while he was in Aries, shaking up your partnerships and friendships. The only thing that is for certain is that when Uranus transits the realm of mystery, he’s about to re-wild some of the more private areas of your life.

May begins on the heels of that heady Scorpio full moon from April 29th. The cardinal squaring from April continues as well, with Mercury square Pluto exactly on May 7th and Mars on the 12th.

Empower yourself to know who they are. Venus square Neptune on May 7th tempts you to step away from work and explore shinier things, which could be a nice break given how intense life has been lately. You could get a financial break, too, when the sun opposes Jupiter on the 8th. On the 11th, the sun trine Pluto supports your long-term transformation.

On May 13th, Mercury meets Uranus at the very last degree of Aries, sending a brilliant last message from a friend or partner before moving into Taurus, where he supports you in magical practice, deep research, and/or commerce. Uranus follows Mercury into Taurus on the 15th, beginning a whole new era. We also have the Taurus new moon on the same day. As the new moon is traditionally a time for setting intentions and planting seeds, think about how you want your 8-year Uranus reinvention cycle to look. Who do you want to become at the end of it? What would you like to manifest? What do you want the universe to reveal to you? Hold that vision in your mind on the 15th.

This new moon is extremely active, so you don’t really get to ease into it. You’ll be getting started right away! Mars enters Aquarius on May 16th, immediately squaring Uranus in Taurus.

Pour as much energy as you can into your career at the end of the month.
