Get ready for a next wave. Mercury in Aries is in action over the first couple of days of May. Venus fires up in Aries in the second week. The new moon in Taurus on May 4 gains extra turbo from Mars in opposition to Jupiter (perfecting on May 5). This is a game-on, fresh wind, second wind, or next page transit. Expect more news, more trading, more trending, more money and people on the go, etc. 

There can be some tight spots to get through (notably May 1, 2, 7, 9) but overall the stars aim to fast track progress in the first half of the month. Whatever gets off the ground does so with a strong start. Will it hold its dynamic life force? Can it go the distance? It remains to be seen, but for the most part, the answer is yes. The middle of June through July (a karmic threshold of significance) will be telling in this regard. Don’t let that idea hold you back. The growth opportunity and cash-in potential of the here and now is better than average. Don’t miss your chance!

Mercury enters Taurus on May 6. Rather than settle into a groove, it can keep things lively, perhaps also on edge, at least initially. May 7 can be a stress test day. May 8, the day Mercury/Uranus perfect (form conjunction) could hold a completely opposite effect. Creative opportunity and synchronicity are at peak. Something unexpected could make your day.

Mother’s Day weekend is bookend by the sun’s trine to Saturn on May 11 and the sun’s trine to Pluto on May 13. Overall, you should feel a sense that you are getting to someplace good. May 13 to 17, Venus and Mars are in good accord. Relationships (social, professional, personal) and money matters should hit a good stride/productive move-along.

The full moon on May 18 is a blue moon, which usually refers to the second full moon in a single month.  This one is not a second full moon, rather it is called a blue moon because the face of the moon will appear bluish due to dust particles in the air. I cannot remember a time when I saw such a moon, but apparently folks saw a bluish full moon for several months after Indonesia’s Krakatoa volcanic eruption in 1883.

Coinciding with a long weekend for Canadians (Victoria Day weekend), the full moon in Scorpio is accompanied by Venus conjunct Uranus in Taurus. Expect emotional intensity, for something or someone unexpected to get you/get it going. Spontaneity delivers. Venus/Uranus could produce a windfall, an unexpected expense, a great find, etc.

Mars in Cancer, starting May 15, puts more attention on matters to do with security, safety (personal and national), home, family, real estate, etc. It also puts more attention on a review of the past and on personal needs, self care, and self preservation. When and how you can, make sure to take some quality time to nurture and replenish yourself.

The sun and Mercury enter Gemini on May 21. A Mars/Jupiter opposition started the month. A Mercury/Jupiter opposition ends the month. One way or another, expect for May keep you on the go from start to finish.
