May 2019 – LIBRA
New financial opportunities
May features a lot of earth energy that helps you to ground yourself. Take on situations and work that require patience and resoluteness. You’ll have plenty of both this month.
The new moon in Taurus on May 4 should trigger new financial opportunities for you. It may come through a client with whom you have worked in the past. Your partner may get a raise or promotion, or you land a bonus for work you’ve done. You’ll have a clearer picture about this once Mercury, and then Venus, enter Taurus on May 6 and May 15 respectively. Also on the 15th, Mars enters Cancer and your career area.
Let’s look at each of these transits separately. Mercury will be in Taurus until May 21 and brings a steadiness to your conscious thoughts. You’re better able to control what you think and when you think it, thus avoiding negative streams of internal chatter that don’t do you or anyone else any good. Your command of language is excellent now and you’re able to make the abstract practical.
Once Venus joins Mercury on May 15, your sensuality and appreciation for beauty peak. A royalty check or insurance refund may arrive, you may find a better mortgage rate or your loan could come through. If a romance begins during this transit, there may be mystical elements to the relationship. You might feel you have known the person in other lives. This transit ends on June 8.
Between May 15 and July 1, Mars moves through Cancer and your career area. Whenever Mars transits this area of your chart, you become a dervish of activity and can accomplish a great deal. Your intuition is sharpened considerably, and you’re able to make quick decisions based on nothing more than a hunch or a feeling. Mars is the planet that makes stuff happen, Libra.
On the 18th, the full moon in Scorpio highlights your financial area. You’re able to understand the beliefs and thoughts that may be preventing you from achieving the financial prosperity you desire and grasp how to adjust them. Since Pluto forms a friendly angle to this full moon, any news you hear about money puts you in a more powerful position.
Mercury enters Gemini on May 21, and between then and June 4, your communication skills are stellar. Mercury rules Gemini and functions well here. This transit favors all kind of writing, studying, research and learning. You may feel restless during this transit, an itch to be traveling and start planning a vacation for the summer. Just don’t travel between July 7 and 31, when Mercury will be retrograde in Leo.
