After a hectic month of April, we can finally relax, indulge, and pamper ourselves in the true fashion of Taurus season. It might be a bit more intense for people with natal placements (especially Sun, Moon, or rising sign) between 1-3° of fixed signs: Aquarius, Leo, Scorpio, and Taurus. Pluto is stationing to go retrograde on May 2nd at 2° Aquarius. This might bring inner psychological issues, traumas, and transformations.

For a more detailed breakdown of May astrological energies for all 12 zodiac signs, check out my latest video on YouTube.

On May 15th, Ceres, the asteroid of nurturing and self-parenting will station to go retrograde at 21° Capricorn. She spends most of this year in Capricorn, where she is uncomfortable. We might experience some digestion issues, gluten intolerance, or malnourishment. On the other hand, it's an opportunity to revise how we nurture ourselves, what we need to feel nurtured, and how to implement a better diet.

The New Moon in Taurus on May 8th is one of the best New Moon's of the year. Along with 3 other planets in Taurus at the time - Venus, Uranus, and Jupiter, this is a time to fertilize your ideas and projects for steady, abundant growth. Watch out for overindulgence and overspending on luxuries but treat yourself to something you find pleasurable. Choose quality over quantity! This New Moon will be especially favorable for all Earth signs: Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorns and for all of you with natal placements between 13°- 23° of the Earth signs.

The Full Moon at 2° Sagittarius on May 23rd will bring more opportunities to make money.  With the help of Pluto (wealth, power)  making a lovely aspect to it and with Jupiter and Venus's conjunction at the last degree of Taurus (material gain, possessions, money) it's all about capitalizing on prior hard work. Time to expand our minds, travel, and have a good time! Particularly favorable for you with Sagittarius placements between 1°-5°.

May Ingresses
May Ingresses 
  1. We start the month on May 1st with Venus in Taurus squaring Pluto in Aquarius bringing passion and obsession to the surface. This can show within our relationships and our finances. Later in the month, on May 18th, Venus will join Uranus bringing excitement and urge for adventure. On May 23rd, she will join Jupiter on the Full Moon, wanting luxury pleasures and indulgence. She will enter Gemini later in the day, and have a beautiful aspect with Pluto on May 25th. This might be the happy ending to the hard aspect between them from the beginning of the month.
  2. Mercury will finally enter Taurus on May 15th after being in Aries for over two months. This will slow down our minds and thinking process. It's long needed to get some stability and growth with our practical ideas. We will have 5 planets in Taurus at this point, bringing us pragmatism, the need for material security, but also resistance to adapt to necessary changes.
  3. Just before the Sun goes into Gemini on May 20th, it will conjunct Jupiter on May 18th bringing us fortune and great opportunities. Make sure you don't overdo whatever you are doing because Jupiter has no limits on its own. After the Sun enters Gemini it will have a beautiful aspect with Pluto. We might feel more empowered and in control.
  4. On May 16th, Pallas Athena, the asteroid of strategizing and smart planning will station to go retrograde back to Scorpio. This will give us more skills for research, tactics, and a deeper understanding of the current situation.  
  5. Jupiter will finish his work in Taurus for another 12 years on May 25th when he enters Gemini. This will bring a lot of new ideas, learning opportunities, and new ways of communicating while he is in Gemini.

The first half of the month is about pleasures, love, sensuality, and material blessings, while the second half brings more fun, socializing, flirting, optimism, and joy!
