May 2019 – TAURUS
May is definitely your month, Taurus, with some delicious surprises! It begins on May 4, with a new moon in your sign. As you know by now, this new moon comes along just once a year and sets the tone for the next twelve months. Take a few minutes at the beginning of the month to think about what you would like to experience and achieve in the next year, make a list and post the list where you’ll see it often.
With this new moon comes opportunities that are personally satisfying. Neptune is friendly to this moon, indicating that the opportunities may involve the arts, a creative endeavor of some kind or your spiritual beliefs.
From May 6 to 21, Mercury transits Taurus, and now you’re in familiar terrain. Your patience deepens but so does your stubbornness. Your conscious focus and resilience are fortified, and it’s an excellent time to dust off a project that has been on hold and dive into it.
On the 15th, Venus joins Mercury in your sign, marking one of the most romantic and creative times for you all year. The only other period that’s equal falls between August 21 and September 14, when Venus moves through the romance and creativity sector of your chart. Venus will be in your sign until June 8, and during this period, your muse shadows you 24/7. If you aren’t involved with anyone when this transit starts, you probably will be by the time it ends. If you’re in a relationship, then things between you and your partner unfold with greater ease. You rediscover why you are together.
Also on the 15th, Mars moves into compatible water sign Cancer, where it will be until July 1. This transit sharpens your communication skills and brings a beautiful intuitive edge to your personality that enables you to make decisions quickly and decisively based on your hunches. You may be making more short-distance trips, perhaps for your work.
The full moon in Scorpio on May 18 falls in your partnership area. Expect news about a personal or business partnership. Thanks to a close, beneficial angle from Pluto to this full moon, you’re empowered by the news. The Scorpio moon is one of the most emotionally intense, so be prepared to for some deep feelings.
Mercury enters Gemini and your financial area on May 21, and between then and June 4, your conscious focus is on what you earn, spend and save. If you think you’re living beyond your means, then set up a realistic budget and resolve to stick to it.
