HOROSCOPES FOR THE MONTH OF MAY
aries

Much of May’s astrology pulls your attention to your money and cash flow. A New Moon on May 4/5 can help you refresh your mindset by working towards creating new stability with money. Now that Uranus is firmly rooted in your money sector for the next 6 years, much of this mindset lies in adopting a new approach to your money habits. If you’re naturally conservative with cash, consider spending more especially if it’s an investment in your financial future. Conversely, if you have a hard time tracking your spending habits or holding on to the cash you earn, this month may prompt a change in your attitude.

Mercury’s annual trip through Taurus from the 6/7th – 21st can help you get curious about cash and ask the questions you need to ask to get on top of things. Mercury in Taurus can be an expensive time for you. If a sudden expenditure takes you by surprise, or if a bill turns up that seems exorbitant, especially on the 8/9 remember that everything is negotiable.
Money you save through negotiating your overheads will be better off in your pocket once Venus arrives from the 15th. No one does comfort and indulgence quite like Venus in Taurus. If you’re overdue for a treat, you might like to splash some cash on a special purchase you’ve been holding out on, especially when Venus meets Uranus on the 18/19th.

Over recent weeks, you may have been reading/writing more, learning more or being generally busier than usual. By now, you may be feeling overstretched in day-to-day routine. The period between the 3rd – 6th sees some stellar aspects that may see all your recent efforts come to fruition. A new piece of information, a networking opportunity or a person of influence may bring you an offer well worth making the extra effort for.

Your personal priorities and pace may begin to shift toward your home, family and domestic life from the 15/16th once Mars moves into tender Cancer. A change of plans or a sudden development is possible on the 22/23rd. Take note of what occurs for you then, as this may provide a clue or insight as to what you may contend with through until early July.

taurus

Like it or not, Uranus is now a mainstay in your sign until 2026. This month may bring developments that are simultaneously welcome and disruptive.
A link between Venus and Jupiter on the 9/10th may bring support and encouragement regarding an issue that has been developing in the background over the last few weeks. Whether you’ve been working hard on a project in the pipeline, or spending energy contemplating the changes that lie ahead, an exciting opportunity may present that offers a silver lining.

Curious Mercury moves into your sign from 6/7th – 21st. New insights and bright ideas may flourish on the 8/9th. Thinking outside of the box can bring positive progress. If your self-talk then defaults into shutting down an idea, that is your cue to open up to a new possibility. Change can be daunting for you, so if in doubt, ask questions and become proactive about obtaining the information you need in order to move forward.

Attracting the support you need to put your best foot forward may feel easier when Venus, your special star enters Taurus from the 15th through until June 9. In your own sign, Venus promotes popularity and collaboration. You might notice that the right people come at the right time to lend you a hand as teamwork and togetherness is encouraged. Venus also loves to lavish herself with gifts, and seeing it’s your birthday season, you might like to indulge yourself with anything that makes you look and feel good.

Venus will then join Uranus on the 18/19th. These days may feel particularly dramatic as the Moon grows Full in your relationship sector at the same time. You might feel ready to be seen in a new light or prepared to take an emotional risk in a personal or professional partnership. If there is someone special on the horizon you’d like to connect more deeply with, this Full Moon may provide the opportunity. Comfort, connection and honesty are especially highlighted then.

Action planet Mars in your sign continues to keep the pace moving through until the 15/16th. By now, you may be feeling overstretched with a plethora of proverbial pots on the boil. Mars only visits Gemini once in every two years, so pull your socks up and hang in there just a while longer. As you sort through all the details, it’s natural you may lose sight of the bigger picture. Support may be on offer thanks to a romantic pairing or a professional partnership on the 5/6th when Jupiter forms a link. A sage piece of wisdom will be well worth taking on board then.

Mars will energise your money zone from the 15/16th through until early July. In fact, your finances will be a hot spot over the next couple of months, so take Mars’ passage through Cancer as your sign to be proactive about your money, especially if debt reduction or financial independence is a key concern. This may prompt you to ask your boss for a raise or if you work for yourself, you may look for ways to boost revenue in your business. The 22/23rd looks especially promising when Mars and Uranus work together. Making a sudden move or an out-of-the-blue choice may promise the turnaround or breakthrough you’re looking for.

There’s a lot going on the in the background for you in May as the Sun, Mercury and Venus spotlight your most private sector. You could be working hard in the background bringing a project to fruition, or you might be spending a lot of mental energy processing some of your changing ideas about your world view. The 8/9 and 18/19th may bring exciting developments, fresh insights and new perspectives. With Uranus in the mix, anything is possible.

The 21st sees Mercury move into your sign, heralding a phase of action and implementation around your recent ideas. The month closes out with Jupiter challenging you to consider both the long and short game in respect to you and your personal direction. Ponder all your available options before you dive into the first one that becomes available. Relationships may be a key factor in your choice then too.

As April moves into May, some of 2019’s peak astrology activates your 7th house of relationships. The union of Saturn and the lunar South Node may challenge you to push past your relationship habits and pre-existing patterns, especially if a situation feels as though you’re in a constant feedback loop.
If worries, obligations or responsibilities have isolated you from your relationship, it may be time to reclarify what’s most important to you.

Mars onside from May 15/16th will energize your sign for the first time in two years. In the context of the upcoming alignments over the next couple of months, this isn’t going to be your average ‘self-care’ or ‘me-first’ visit. While improving your personal habits and progressing with your passions are highlighted, Mars in Cancer until the beginning of July may be more about dissecting your priorities and getting clear about what you’re willing to fight for, and what you’re not. A constant state defense mode becomes tiring and counter-productive over time. Strike out in a new direction, especially on the 22/23rd.

A Full Moon in your fun and romance sector on the 18/19th invites you to savor some of life’s most joyous moments. This might mean spending more time doing what you love, with whom you love. This lunation may heighten emotions that can lead to greater depth, intimacy and connection. As Venus unites with radical Uranus then, this Full Moon might highlight change in a key relationship.

Your sector of friendship and fortune is blessed this month as the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Uranus and a New Moon energize this portion of your solar horoscope. You might find solace, support and connection through your alliances and networks. The 4th/5th looks especially promising for organizing or attending a work-related event where rubbing shoulders with the right people can help you make progress. A breakthrough opportunity is possible on the 3rd and again on the 9th/10th where a connection with a person of influence, wisdom or experience lends their support or clout to your cause.

Your 10th house of career and life direction is activated this month as planets pile up in Taurus. Now that Uranus is a mainstay at the top of your chart until 2026, this month may herald some inklings of change and progress in either small or large ways.
The 8/9th and 18/19th are dates to watch as Mercury and Venus respectively team up with Uranus. This might mean a conversation or a connection with an alliance may steer you in a new direction professionally. If you’re settling for less than you deserve at work, you might decide to make a sudden course correction, announce your resignation and move on to the next thing.

Assertive Mars continues through your friendship sector through until the 15/16th. Whether it’s your personal or professional allies, you’ll look to make headway in connecting with the right people who heighten your sense of curiosity and joy. Some of your happiest or most productive moments may occur on the 9th/10th when Mars and Jupiter join forces. You may discover a cause worth getting behind or discover you’ve got more support than you think.

Once Mars enters Cancer on the 15/16th you might trade sociability for solitude. This may be your cosmic call to put rest and relaxation on the top of your priority list. If work beckons, you might prefer to work from home rather than the office. Either way, as you enjoy an increased amount of time pondering your inner landscape, intuitive bubbles of insight may rise to the surface. Take note of your shifting perspectives over the next six weeks. They will provide insight about how to better manage your time as well as your health and wellness habits under July’s eclipses.
Themes of home and retreat are again illuminated under the Scorpio Full Moon on the 18th/19th. You might feel intensely private and protective of your own place and space then. Curiosity may rise about a work-related issue as something may not feel quite right. As you begin to question the status-quo you may become privy to hidden information, a secret agenda, drama or politics. Avoid losing your head or getting stressed out, instead, trust your gut to help you make the right choice.

Themes of discovery, adventure and what brings life a sense of meaning and purpose is spotlighted for you throughout May. Anything is possible with Uranus in the mix, so remain curious and open to any developments that peak your interest or have an element of excitement to them. Progress around a teaching, studying or publishing project is possible when Mercury and Uranus align on the 8/9th. Far-flung places may capture your attention, inspiring you to research a foreign destination, spiritual pursuit or anything that’s generally new, different or unique for you.
In fact, anything that broadens your horizons through learning or travel is spotlighted, especially under the Full Moon on the 18/19th. Even exploring your local community can help widen your perspectives and see life from a fresh angle. Friends and lovers alike may play a role here, so if a sudden invitation pops up then, it may be an exceptionally happy experience for you.

You may experience a little tension between your professional efforts and your home and family under a Mars/Jupiter link on the 5/6th. It may be the support of your loved ones at home that inspire confidence and encouragement helping you make a brave choice. If you feel in a tizz with all the details, keep your eye on your big picture vision and your domestic dreams for the future.

Friends will be in focus from the 15th/16th when Mars begins a six-week tour of your 11th sector. Your social life may become increasingly active, especially as you may opt to take charge and initiate catch-ups and get-togethers. Mars moves through Cancer just once in every two years, so it might be worth your while reconnecting with those friends that get left behind when the busyness of life gets in the way. If you’re involved in a community group, club or charity organisation, especially on the international scene, you may extend your level of involvement then too.
Until early July, Mars will prime the territory that the mid-year eclipses will activate. What you initiate in the second half of this month and through June may transform the way you experience fun, pleasure and happiness.

Significant shifts in your domestic life continue as April turns into May. As Saturn and the South Node join forces in Capricorn, you might need to reconsider what security and stability at home really means for you. This might mean flipping the script on what you thought was going to be, in favour of what could be.
This may signal a process of downsizing or constriction, either physically or emotionally. This ‘cleaning out the closet’ vibe may also impact your family history and your relationship to your ancestors. If there are parts of your life that feel ingrained, habitual and stuck, it might be worth exploring ways in which you can heal your past in order to secure the future you crave.

Your professional path and life direction gets a once in every two-year boost thanks to Mars in Cancer from the 15/16th until the beginning of July. You might garner the confidence to tackle a project or problem at work head-on or flex your muscle in terms of your leadership capacity. As Mars makes waves here for six weeks, you might make new realisations about what you really want out of a career and how that may be impacting on your overall life path. Some big choices about that loom in July, but mid-May and June are peppered with clues and insights about what they may be.

The money you share with a current or former partner has been in a state of flux recently. This month’s astrology highlights potential for progress in this department in your life. If you’re single, you might be looking to take out a loan or mortgage or make significant inroads to reduce debt. When it comes to your financial future, you don’t like to take risks, but with Uranus calling your joint finance sector home for the next six years, options that shake up the status quo may provide you with the freedom and independence you long for. Making agreements, entering a negotiation or signing a contract is favoured for 8/9th and 18/19th.

Relationships are a key component of the month of May as planets move through Taurus and interact with Uranus. Speaking of Uranus, this outer planet is now a permanent fixture in your interactions with others, both professional and personal. Above all else, Uranus is helping you discover your inner authenticity with others by putting past drama behind you.
As the Sun, Mercury and Venus move through Taurus, you’ll have the opportunity to test the waters, so to speak, with this fresh and exciting energy in your life. Sudden out-of-the-blue offers may come your way or things may move quicker than you’d otherwise prefer. Rather than trying to control the outcome, do your best to remain flexible and open to possibilities.
A New Moon on the 4/ 5th can help you commit to a fresh approach in your relating style. You might have to blend commitment with going with the flow, especially around work-related topics then.
The 8/9th may prompt you to get to know someone better. As Mercury and Uranus join forces, your curiosity may heighten and you’ll want to know what makes them tick. Intimacy is what you crave most in partnership and communication is your key to establishing it.

A Full Moon in your sign on the 18th/19th will encourage truth, trust and honesty. You might be ready to reveal how you feel or share a secret. Sparks might fly as Mars and Venus interact with Uranus. Anything can happen now, but the choice will be up to you whether you feel ready to take an emotional risk.

The 15th/16th sees Mars your patron planet move into Cancer and fire up your sector of travel, discovery and adventure. Until very early July, opportunities to make progress on a teaching, study or publishing project are possible. It’s been two years since Mars energised this part of your solar chart, so you might focus your attention toward global interests, either through travel or the internet. Events in the pipeline then may launch you in exciting new directions in July.

sagittarius

Money and how you earn, spend and save it will be a big issue as a new month begins. The Saturn and South Node conjunction that bridges April and May will prompt clarity and honesty about what is or isn’t working with your finances. As confronting as this may be, it will set a new foundation from which to spring from.
It might be that you’ve got your eye on long-term money goals but you’re lacking in managing your day-to-day spending. With Mars making waves in your debt and savings sector from the 15/16th, you might need to review your overheads, loans, mortgages and joint finances to ensure you’re heading in the right direction. It may be a case that you’re over-obsessing about spending five dollars on a latte, when overhauling your financial big-picture is what is really going to bring the progress you’re looking for.

A supportive link between Venus and Jupiter on the 9th/10th might remind you to have fun and enjoy life for a while. You might garner extra support in a romantic situation, spend more time in a creative outlet or sporting pursuit. Children are highlighted too, so even if you don’t have any of your own, unleashing your own inner child and saying ‘yes’ to having fun may help you ignite your fire.

Issues with time management or your health and wellness routines are spotlighted as planets make their way through Taurus and your 6th house. If you’ve been looking to establish some new healthy habits, the New Moon on the 4/5th is a great time to start.
The 6th house is also one of your career sectors, so this month may see changes in your work-routine, especially if you’re looking to become less location dependent or seeking to fit work around your life, rather than fitting life around work. If your current job lacks the inspiration or sense of purpose you thrive on, the 8th/9th and the 18/19th new possibilities may present themselves in a current role or a new job opportunity.

capricorn

Some profound personal insights are available to you as April becomes May as Saturn, your patron planet connects with the South Node. This may prompt the release of some ingrained personal habits, including proverbial walls and structures you’ve built around yourself. This process may involve deep personal reflection about the elements of your life that work well, and those that don’t. Focus on the parts that don’t and what you can do to change that. You hold the power in this situation. You can choose the familiar path or the road less travelled.
It might be a key relationship, personal or professional that may push you past a comfort zone. As Mars moves into Cancer from the 15th/16th, you’re being cosmically invited to relinquish power or control and open up emotionally. The dynamic between you and a significant other will play an important role in the upcoming months. Notice how that plays out until the beginning of July as plenty of clues about how you can move beyond past hurt or pain can be revealed.

Fun, romance and joy are possible throughout May as planets push through solid Taurus. Now that Uranus is in your 5th house of pleasure, creativity and children for the next six years, you might continue to experiment with pastimes, pleasure and passion. A New Moon on the 4th/5th may inspire a fresh start in a stagnant romance or prompt you to make a promise to simply enjoy life more. Even though there is a lot of heavy astrology around you now, taking opportunities for spontaneous enjoyment will be essential.
You might recognise the importance of friendship under the Full Moon on the 18th/19th. As Mars and Venus work together under this lunation, you might be ready to take a friendship to the next level or introduce a new romance into your social circles. If you’re coupled, this might be an ideal time to schedule a catch-up with other coupled friends that you both really vibe with.

aquarius

As your ruler Saturn retrogrades and connects with the South Node, you might opt to break with the past. A lot of unnecessary worry or stress may have been building up in the background that you may not fully realise until you let it go. Sleepless nights, tiredness or a lack of motivation may have been plaguing you of late. If that is the case, schedule some downtime early in the month. Recharging your batteries can help get your head straight and your priorities right.
May 15/16 will see Mars in Cancer who will challenge your availability to rest, relax and rejuvenate. It’s been two years since Mars activated your 6th sector and set a punishing pace. Life may become increasingly busy then, so instead of spinning your wheels, use the first two weeks of May to design a schedule or organise your calendar. This will help you discern the opportunities you wish to accept and those you’ll choose to decline.

Your home and family will be another area of focus as the Sun, Mercury and Venus join Uranus illuminating your domestic scene. You might be ready to make a move either figuratively or literally. A relocation or a renovation may be possible if you’re feeling restless at home or your family dynamics have changed. If you’re quite content with your current living situation, Venus in Taurus from the 15th may inspire a redecoration project. New art or soft furnishings might provide the change you’re looking for and promote a sense of serenity and peace.
Family relationships are also highlighted where you might seek to improve communication or establish new habits to promote connection and togetherness, especially under the New Moon on the 4th/5th.

A Full Moon in Scorpio on the 18th/19th may prompt honest reflection about your current level of job satisfaction. If you’re working hard and not getting the reward or recognition you deserve, you might realise you’re ready to make a move. As Mars works with Uranus, fast paced developments are possible if you’re considering striking out in a new direction.

Your friendships are under a period of cosmic review as Saturn moves in reverse and connects with the South Node as May begins. This might mean realising that some friends were not quite who you thought they were, while others become set in stone within your social circles.
With your busy lifestyle, this clarifying process will help you reserve your time and effort for those who count, while others will move to the periphery.

A New Moon in Taurus on the 4th/5th will inspire some new personal rituals that can help you reconnect with your inner peace and serenity. Taurus is all about the five senses, so if you’ve been lacking in self-care recently, the little things like eating more of your favourite foods, buying some fresh flowers or drinking some wine will help you stay grounded and in a pleasure state. Activating this part of your solar chart, this lunation may also prompt you to develop habits that support your personal growth and development. Tuning into more podcasts, reading books or learning more about topics that interest you will be super supportive.
The Sun in Taurus is joined by Mercury and Venus on the 6/7th and 15th respectively. This may add a social flavour where you might connect with siblings or explore your local neighbourhood or city. Say yes to spontaneous invites or an opportunity that looks unique or interesting then.

Mars’ visit to Cancer and your 5th house of fun, creativity and joy for the first time in two years may bring a peak cycle of happiness. Whether you choose to spend more time with children, creative hobbies or spicing up a romantic situation, you’re cosmically encouraged to push ahead with endeavors that make you feel good. As you make happiness your priority, you’ll find it easier to release old habits or patterns that have weighted you down.

Adventure, travel and discovery are highlighted under the Full Moon in Scorpio on the 18th/19th. You might crave an experience that stirs your soul and brings a sense of meaning and purpose to your life. As Mars works with Uranus, expect the unexpected when it comes to a global opportunity or the chance to fulfill a long-held dream.
