May 2019 -AQUARIUS
One step at a time
Compared to April, May is a more evenly paced month, with an emphasis on earth energy. It’s a good month to tackle projects that require patience and resilience.
The new moon in Taurus on May 4 should bring new opportunities to your home and family life. You might put your home on the market, sell your home or launch a home-based business. Or, also possible, someone moves in or out. Neptune in Pisces is friendly to this new moon, indicating that opportunities may have artistic or spiritual aspects to them.
From May 6 to 21, Mercury moves through Taurus. This transit reinforces your innate stubbornness and enables you to take abstract ideas and make them tangible and comprehensible to others. You set more realistic goals and work patiently toward achieving them.
On the 15th, Venus enters Taurus and travels with Mercury until the 21st. The Venus transit lasts until June 8 and brings a smoothness and ease to your home life. Your sensuality is deepened and so is your appreciation for beauty and art. You may decide to refurbish and beautify your personal space in some way. You might start a garden or bring the outdoors inside with a fountain, fresh flowers or potted plants.
Also on the 15th, Mars enters Cancer, and between now and July 1, you’re focused on a work project that benefits from your deepened intuition and your ability to nurture an idea from birth to completion. Your family may figure into this transit, too, because Cancer represents home and family.
The full moon in Scorpio on May 18 highlights your professional life. You feel everything more intensely now and are able to see all the connecting pieces of your career with greater clarity. Pluto is friendly to this full moon, an indication that news you hear puts you in a stronger position to negotiate and bargain.
You’ll enjoy Mercury’s transit through fellow air sign Gemini from May 21 to June 4. As it moves through the romance and creativity area of your chart, you talk and think about your partner and your various creative projects and should carve out time daily to indulge in both. If you’re not involved with anyone at the moment, you may meet someone special during Venus’s transit of this area next month.
