May 2019 – CANCER
This month, the focus is on Taurus and your eleventh house of networking, publicity, your friends and the groups with whom you associate. On May 4, the new moon in Taurus brings in new opportunities in any or all of these areas. Taurus is grounded, patient, practical and usually finishes what he or she has started. These characteristics are inherent in this new moon and in Mercury’s transit through the sign, which begins on May 6 and ends on May 21. There’s a mystical side to Taurus that may surface during this transit and an awareness of other realms and dimensions that you may explore with friends.
Venus enters Taurus on the 15th, and Mars enters your sign. The first transit facilitates your networking and any publicity campaigns in which you’re involved. Friends are supportive of all your endeavors. If a romance is kindled during this transit, it may be with someone you meet through friends or could be someone you already know as a friend.
This Mars transit through your sign lasts until July 1 and should be terrific for you, enabling you to get things done, to move forward in every area where you place your focus and energy. Your intuition is particularly strong, and your emotions are your truest gauge about the state of your life.
The full moon in fellow water sign Scorpio on the 18th brings news about a romantic relationship or a creative endeavor. Scorpio is an intense sign, and with the full moon bringing everything into start focus, you may feel more emotional than usual. Any news you hear, though, should work in your favor, thanks to a beneficial angle from powerful Pluto.
From May 21 to June 4, Mercury moves through Gemini, a sign it rules. This transit sharpens your communication skills and your people skills. Since it occurs in the area of the personal unconscious, you may be doing a lot of writing in solitude and reached through social media.
