Stargazer Astrology May


Uranus looms largely in the May forecast – so expect for the unexpected, especially where matters of security are concerned. Brilliant ideas are hatched under these influences, but the erratic and unpredictable are equally featured and can provide undesired, or at the very least disruptive, developments. Early Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius horoscope factors experience this the most intensively. The 8th (Mercury conjunct Uranus) and the 18th (Venus conjunct Uranus) are potent for initiating new ventures or relationships that have an unconventional or futuristic flavor to them. These cycles last for about a year so pay close attention to what begins around these dates. Expect news about new products or standardization connected to FinTech or Blockchain technologies, payment automation and virtual wallets.  

Lunations in Taurus and Scorpio further emphasize resources: from Taurus – what you can do for yourself, or self reliance, and from Scorpio – what you can create and accomplish together. Neither the New or Full Moon are significantly aspected by aspect to other planets or the nodes, so you can work with these how you choose to. With the New Moon (May 4th at 14’ Taurus) you want to plant seeds or begin something associated with the material growth you seek and cultivate your inner confidence.

A Full Moon at 27’ Scorpio on May 18th signals the return on efforts that began in early November of last year. You see signs of fruition for a goal that was established last Autumn and likely features themes of intimate relationships and business partnerships. A catharsis comes complete.

A major breakthrough on the 5th loops back to an enterprise that was established around January 6th 2018, during the conjunction of Mars and Jupiter at 17’ Scorpio. As these two fiery behemoths connect in opposition from Gemini to Sagittarius, massive ideological conflicts can erupt, so try to hang on to a bigger picture world view if Chicken Little comes running down the road. The atmosphere is explosive and incendiary!

On a more personal level you should see turning point or culmination where the initiatives formed early last year are showing signs of success for efforts you have put in. If so – good work! On the other hand, if you realize something isn’t going to come out as you wanted, you have the opportunity to go back to the drawing board or scrap what isn’t working based on what becomes abundantly clear following this critical alignment. 



March 20 – April 19

You feel much more in your element this month, just in time to catch up to the marvelous developments on offer professionally. Hard work and an obstacles you overcame earlier this year showed you had grit and place you in a position to boost your earnings now. Hold your most important negotiations, meetings and interviews between the 15th – 17th. By the end of the month news reaches you about a promotion or raise. At the same time, you may seek out unconventional sources of income, since Uranus looms large this month and you are seeking a measure of autonomy where earnings are concerned.

From mid month, domestic matters require attention, and intuition about where and how improvements can be made resonates strongly within you. The more willingly you release the past the easier it is to make room for what is in store. Between now and July there are going to be significant changes in your residential and personal life, some unexpected, though looking back you will see these have been simmering since last Summer.

ARIES: Domestic and residential matters are the focal point of the next two months, and if you are having issues at home or with family members these will need to be addressed. A significant conversation at the end of June and the New Moon on the 23rd all portend big developments unfolding in your base of operations. The 26th is auspicious for decorating or making your home more relaxing. Choose a plant or art object that will bring you pleasure. Really positive financial improvements, possibly linked to new opportunities in your profession (especially around the 24th) can be expected throughout the month. Put your best self and work forward to make the most of these good vibrations. Inspiration on the 20th connects to your earnings potential. Tune in to creativity.


TAURUS: This will be one of the most pleasurable months of the year for you as a transit of Venus beginning June 7th infuses your life with luxury and pleasure. Mars in Cancer also stimulates a nice social ambience, and the 9th is particularly auspicious for a social event or special occasion. The 20th and 24th are especially amorous, and good for planning romantic interludes. If you are unattached circumstances might be right to hatch a fun new liaison. Finances remain in frame and ideas and negotiations can go well at this time. Neptune and Saturn are still at large, however and seem to seek to undermine your efforts. Keep your cool on the 13th and 18th. Strong forces behind the scenes are working to your advantage. A victory on the 1st shows you what you fought in April was worth it.


GEMINI: Sun and Mercury in your sign this month promise a busy period and a great time to make progress on personal goals and initiatives. Jupiter direct on the 9th sends fresh and positive impulses for your creative activities, boosting your confidence and desire to self expression. The 3rd (and to a lesser degree the 13th,) are great for getting out there and flaunting what you have got to offer. Dynamics with a partner will be lively, expect a significant culmination around the 9th. The Full Moon amplifies your desire to stage up a relationship. Entanglements on the 15th and 18th will force a definition of your boundaries with this person. Finances are also highlighted and there are profits to be made in an artistic enterprise on the 26th. Your imagination holds the key. An offer or agreement you make over the 23rd New Moon sets the stage.


CANCER: You get an upsurge of energy and can be very dynamic when Mars enters your sign on the 5th. You can equally be cranky, so watch how much you take on. You tap inspiration on the 26th, and can make progress in a creative project. Venus from Taurus on the 7th activates positive love mojo, and the 9th, 20th and 24th are super harmonious for connecting your hopes and dreams within your partnership. Single Cancer can make meaningful introductions on these dates if attending parties and events. Progress in a residential matter sees forward motion after the 10th, as Jupiter switches direction and enables you to make decisions with greater confidence. You may dwell on the past between the 7th – 21st. All is fine with this as long as you don’t let paranoia slip into the mix, worse yet, make a commitment or comment you didn’t intend to. Best to keep quiet during this brief, introverted phase. Sun and Mercury in your sign on the 22nd signal big new beginnings are on the horizon. State your intentions, wishes and desires for the coming year during the Cancer New Moon phase on the 23rd.


LEO: A joyous and open hearted mood begins to prevail after a season of uncertainty. Professional life takes on a rosy complexion and you’ll find some really good offers are extended, especially around the 20th and 24th. Finding a way to make time for your social life while experiencing a tendency or desire to withdraw requires some negotiation of time and priorities. A tendency to withdraw in this phase is indicated, but there will be numerous social opportunities to attend to. Prepare to juggle a busy schedule, and carve out time for yourself where you can. The Full Moon on the 9th highlights a culmination in a personal creative project, or you may make progress in a love relationship or hear of a pregnancy, news about your kids, etc. Energy levels will probably be low on the 4th and 15th.

The 13th is mixed, there are positive influences, but also some confusion lingering over any agreements. Hear what people have to say, but set aside big decisions for a better time. Financially you may see one source of income ending around the Full Moon of the 9th, or an agreement culminates at this time. Favorable influences preside and all turns out well here.


SAGITTARIUS: You feel a strong sense of yourself and where you are headed during the Sagittarius Full Moon phase on the 9th. This can provide a nice relief where partnerships have been demanding for you.

Contentious vibes on the 4th, 15th and 18th can rattle your cage. Take it easy on these dates as you may feel a bit vulnerable. Socially this continues to be a lovely time, and pleasure pursuits as well as day to day activities all provide stimulation and pleasure. The 9th, 20th, 24th and 26th are immeasurably blissful and should be spent among those you love deeply. Neptune retrogrades in your sign mid month, and your psychic sensors get a reprieve through the end of November.
