Monthly horosocope May 2020
The first week of May brings an intense Full Moon, Aries, during which you may find secrets becoming not quite so secret anymore. However, good news regarding your career and your income follows on May 10th, when Mercury trines both Jupiter and Pluto. With Saturn turning retrograde the next day, it’s a good time to think about your own goals, and to put aside for now the team goals you’ve been pursuing.
On May 11th, Mercury moves into your communications zone, so you’ll find it easier to get your message across, Aries. This is valuable in love and money, because the Venus turns retrograde two days later, potentially mixing and muddling the impression you’re making. Also on May 13th, Mars, your ruling planet, shifts into your spiritual zone, suggesting that more privacy and less empire building might do you some good.
Jupiter turns retrograde in your ambitions zone on May 14th, so take time out to reflect on how you’ve managed your success thus far. Very positive trines between the Sun and both Pluto and Jupiter are likely to bring further good news about career and money, so you can keep moving forwards while being mindful of the past. As May draws to a close, the Sun’s shift into your intellectual zone coincides with a New Moon in that same area – keep your mind busy, because when Mercury moves into your family zone on May 28th, you may find that communication becomes more tense, especially within the family.
A romantic start to May comes courtesy of the Full Moon on May 7th, Taurus, which falls in your love zone. This feel-good factor carries forward that week too, as lovely trines from Mercury to both Jupiter and Pluto on May 10th highlight your sense of adventure and encourages you to break out of a rut. Saturn turns retrograde the next day, suggesting that ambitions can be briefly put on hold while you explore the wider world.
Mercury moves into your money zone on May 11th; two days later Venus turns retrograde here, but Mercury’s intelligent vibe should help you avoid too much sentimentality over money or love. On May 13th, Mars moves into your social zone, urging you to mix more widely and to get involved with groups and communities. You sense deep down that you could have connected more with others recently, but once Jupiter turns retrograde on May 14th, you’ll understand why this matters.
More adventurous trines follow from the Sun to Pluto on May 15th and Jupiter on May 17th, and this is definitely an invitation for you to stretch your horizons, Taurus, either through new online ventures or simply through being more open-minded. In the latter part of the month, money worries should ease as the Sun arrives in your finance zone, swiftly followed by a New Moon there too. It looks set to be a busy time with potential new income streams, but with Mercury moving into your rational zone on May 28th, you should cope well.
Your monthly horoscope warns you to be careful not to overdo things with your mental or physical health in early May. The Full Moon in your health zone on May 7th suggests a warning if you are pushing too hard. Fortunately, rational Mercury trines both Jupiter and Pluto on May 10th, making this a very good period for counseling, therapy or for boosting your mental health. The next day, Saturn turns in your philosophy zone, while Mercury arrives in Gemini at the same time. Taken together, these astrological elements emphasize the need to focus on your concrete goals and ambitions, rather than getting tied up in abstract worries.
On May 12th, ambitious Mars pushes into your career zone. This would normally be an excellent sign, but the next day, Venus turns retrograde in Gemini, potentially inhibiting your confidence for a while. On May 14th, Jupiter also turns retrograde in your psychology zone, so you may find yourself wondering if you really deserve to have been so fortunate in life.
Hang on in there through your doubts. On May 15th and 17th, Sun trines to Pluto and Jupiter bring events which should reassure you that you’re on the right path. Offer forgiveness to those who have wronged you and free yourself from any previous trauma. You’ll feel much better following the 20th when the Sun arrives in Gemini, and particularly around the Gemini New Moon on May 22nd. When Mercury, your ruling planet, moves into your money zone on May 28th, you’ll be ready to hit the ground running.
There’s plenty of passion during May, but the Full Moon in your passion zone on May 7th may highlight a situation which is a little too hot for comfort. When Saturn turns retrograde in your intimacy zone on May 11th, you’ll have food for thought indeed if a relationship is in any way illicit or overly tumultuous. However, romantic prospects are overall good, especially when – also on May 10th – Mercury makes some intelligent trines to Jupiter and Pluto. Friendship could turn to love around this time.
There’s an air of secrecy around love still, however, and on May 13th Venus turns retrograde in your house of privacy. Try to keep personal matters personal, rather than involving third parties in your issues. When Mars moves into your philosophy zone on the same day, you’ll be inspired and guided to do things in an ethically and morally upright manner, which again could have implications for your relationships. The next day, Jupiter turns retrograde in your love zone, so it’s definitely time to re-evaluate what you want and need in this area.
Later in the month, further positive trines from the Sun to Pluto and Jupiter also highlight a friendship turning into more than just friendship, which is interesting. A New Moon in your planetary privacy zone on May 22nd suggests that you will have come to terms with how private or public you can be on this matter, and when Mercury moves into your own sign on May 28th, you’ll be ready to be more open and transparent.
Don’t bow to pressure from others this May – it should be up to you which goals you pursue. A Full Moon in your family zone on May 7th hints that you are trying to please relatives rather than yourself, but the trines from Mercury to Jupiter and Pluto on May 10th underline brilliant opportunities in your working life and career; don’t miss out. As Saturn turns retrograde in your partnership zone, also on May 11th, you may need to re-assess the balance of responsibilities within your love life, leaving you with more time to pursue your own dreams.
Teamwork is emphasized when Mercury moves into your planetary social zone on May 11th, but two days later Venus turns retrograde in that zone. Again, be careful that you are not trying to please friends and colleagues instead of yourself. On May 13th, Mars moves into your transformation zone – if you get to grips with your own motivations now, you will be well equipped to make a lot of progress this month.
On May 14th, Jupiter turns retrograde in your organization zone, giving you the chance to step back and to re-assess your time management and your schedules. Move positive trines, this time from the Sun to Pluto and Jupiter, come into play on May 15th and 17th, so opportunities are still yours for the taking – if you want them. As the Sun shifts into your social zone on May 20th, you’ll feel better able to handle everyone else’s expectations of you, and you can use the New Moon energies on May 22nd to reset the role you’re prepared to play.
This May your monthly horoscope is urging you to get creative, get brave and get beyond your comfort zone, Virgo.
