LEO July 22 – August 22
Thanks to the sun in dynamic aspect to Uranus (conjunction) and Saturn (square), the first few days of the month sets a new reality into play. You can feel a sense of turning the corner or making it over the hump with someone or something. Mercury enters Gemini on May 3; Venus enters Gemini on May 8. Both are mobilizing transits. Setting prospects (financial, social) on the upswing, they set a good backdrop for getting yourself/it to someplace good.
Jupiter dips into Pisces from May 13 to July 28. This transit can be subtle, it may even go unnoticed. If you are sensitive to this transit, you’ll clue into more than you may have words for. Jupiter in Pisces stirs hidden or latent potentials and buried emotions. It also escalates the yearning for more peace and quiet, for more spiritual, emotional, or material fulfillment. Volunteer activities can be rewarding. (Perhaps someone you know/love needs a gentle touch, more kindness or guidance, or even some rescuing). Jupiter in Pisces can help you to relinquish, surrender and ease up on it more, to let go of something that you have struggled with. To the plus, Jupiter in Pisces can stimulate creativity or romance. Trust the wisdom of your intuition.
May 22 onward, the stars move onto a next page or wave. Something moves out of the way, is unblocked or surpassed. Mercury/Neptune (May 22) and Saturn retrograde (starting May 23) can act as preliminary triggers for the super full moon/total lunar eclipse in Sagittarius on May 26. Also contributing to this very potent eclipse: Venus/Neptune (square May 27), Venus/Mercury (new cycle May 27), and Mercury retrograde (starting May 29). It’s one thing after another. All three keep the action rolling along a fluid track. The eclipse can springboard you or jettison you to someplace good. Once the spark is lit and/or it gets off the ground, it will take on a dynamic life of its own. Overall, this eclipse can be fortuitous for your sign. You can feel fate or destiny in play in some major way. As is typical of Mercury retrograde, expect to re-meet, revisit, repeat or revise. You could resume something that has been recently waylaid (a plan, project, a trip, a move, a new financial or romantic adventure).
VIRGO August 22 – September 22
May is front-loaded and end-loaded, but in differing ways. The sun, Mercury and Venus set a productive backdrop over the first week of the month. You should feel a sense of getting over the hump and that generally, you are hitting a good stride regarding activities, communications, and relationships. Mercury enters Gemini on May 3 and Venus enters Gemini on May 8. Moving from trines to Pluto in the first half of the month and to trines to Saturn in mid month (May 12, May 19), both Mercury and Venus set a lucrative backdrop for making the most of it. More things to do, more places to go, more things to think about and more people to interface with – each day is full to the brim.
Jupiter takes a brief dip into Pisces from May 13 to July 28. This transit can draw added attention to what’s missing, to the blank spaces. There is plus side to that. Jupiter in Pisces can prompt you to go in search for more – more personal or material reward, more love, more peace of mind, more sustenance for the soul. Jupiter in Pisces wants you to dream it bigger, aspire higher. Create the room for it, stay confident and hopeful, and there is a better possibility to attract it. Consider this temporary Jupiter transit as a tap on the shoulder (or rather the heart), as preview for the future (2022 and beyond).
The super full moon/total lunar eclipse in Sagittarius on May 26 can springboard a new self-discovery process, a next personal life chapter, or career direction. It could prompt new address or family circumstance (perhaps a new addition to the family?), a return to school, to a place you have visited or once lived. Venus and Mercury begin a new cycle just one day before Mercury turns retrograde. You could reconnect with someone from your past, whether actually or through karmic destiny (a twist of fate or déjà vu provides your clue). You may re-meet with the past, but it is never the same twice!
Mercury’s retrograde tour in Gemini can change your plans, your mind, or the way you observe your reality. A friend or sibling can draw you into a (karmic) revisit too. You can find yourself in transition, or “betwixt and between”. If so, this a time of flux is temporary. Take it one step at a time, deal with the demand of the moment as it arises, think/act in terms of today for tomorrow’s gain (short term or temporary), and allow for circumstances to play themselves out.
LIBRA September 22 to October 22
You can make good headway in the first few days of the month, perhaps unexpectedly so. The sun on trigger with Uranus and Saturn dish up positive assistance. It is a time when you can more easily build on your successes. Sun/Saturn (May 3) can jettison you past a roadblock and/or see you make a significant break-through regarding something that has been in works for awhile.
Mercury leaves Taurus for Gemini on May 3. Venus leaves Taurus for Gemini on May 8. Making good connections to Pluto and Saturn along the way, both transits provide good assistance through May 19. You should gain a good feel for what will provide you with the most bang for your buck; for what and who is most worthy of your time and attention. Both Mercury and Venus increase your intuitive awareness. Trust your instincts!
Jupiter’s transit through Aquarius is one of your best, especially in terms of personal reawakening, creative enterprise, and matters of heart. As of May 13, Jupiter begins a skinny dip in Pisces. You may or may not notice its influence, but no matter how subtle, the transit holds plenty of sway. If/when/as best you can, gift yourself with extra time to heal, to relax, to feel your way along and to catch up with yourself. Potentials are on brew, but they can be easily missed when you are stressed, distracted, or run ragged.
May 22 Mercury squares Neptune. May 23, Saturn in Aquarius begins retrograde. Something could be uncovered, exposed, or give way. Mercury/Neptune can be a mixed message, watered down message, blurred lines, or confusion transit. Don’t take it at face value, don’t jump to conclusions. You could find yourself on an energy drain or second-guess yourself. On the other hand, both transits clear the clutter and set the stage for the super full moon/total lunar eclipse in Sagittarius on May 26.
The total lunar eclipse sets the future into play in a take flight or big picture way. There’s significant opportunity for the taking. Your intuition can speak volumes. Trust your instincts! You can have a message to deliver and an audience to play to. Put yourself out there, speak your truth, give a presentation or workshop, attend a conference, write your book, exhibit your talents, or pitch your product/project. This eclipse is also opportune for moving, travel, higher education pursuits, speculative venture, or a spiritual quest. The eclipse is followed by a Venus/Neptune square (May 27) which is good for aspiring, creativity and indulging yourself, but not necessary for the practical end, or for keeping it real. May 28, Venus, and Mercury begin a new cycle. Double check with yourself or another, make sure you have all your facts and figures straight and that you have all that you need to put the show on the road. Even so, keep open ended and put added flexibility in your plans. A revision, repeat, backtrack, or add-on is likely. Mercury in Gemini begins a retrograde tour on May 29.
SCORPIO October 22 to November 21
Sun/Uranus supplies you with a revitalizing boost at month’s start. You should have no trouble getting yourself or it up and rolling. At peak through the first week of the month, intuition helps you to see with fresh eyes and to evaluate in a new way. In turn, you’ll start to consider options and spot opportunities that could have easily been overlooked. Mercury and Venus assist you to navigate and negotiate with great skill, especially May 2 and 6. Both planets set a lucrative backdrop, especially May 12 and 19.
Jupiter dips a toe into Pisces from May 13 to July 28. It could be a subtle influence. It could even go unnoticed as it will not take a full dive until the start of 2022. Even so, know Jupiter in Pisces dishes up ample opportunity. The transit can diffuse tension and make it easier to go with the flow, to create and/or net gain. Relax more. That’s when the healing begins, inspiration comes naturally, and when your creativity does its best conjuring. This Jupiter transit can stimulate romance or call you to the spiritual side of life.
Mercury squares Neptune on May 22. Saturn turns retrograde on May 23. Combined, they could pull back a curtain or unleash something that’s been on brew. To the plus they can clear a pathway or clear away what’s been getting the better of you.
May 26 delivers a total lunar eclipse in Sagittarius. It is also a super full moon. This high tide eclipse gets it off the ground, exposes it, or cuts to the chase in some big step way. One way or another, truth is revealed. Opportunity can come knocking, but make sure to see things for what they are, not for what you want to see. Once set it motion, it will run the full course. Venus and Mercury move to a new phase on May 28. On May 29, Mercury begins retrograde. You might be on a new page, but revisits and revisions are a natural part of the process. A second chance can be too. The eclipse can prompt you to retrace your steps, renegotiate a contract, to have another conversation, or to give it another try.
