May 2022 Astrology
Three Major Events!
May is the Time to Turn Visions Into Realities!
Beginning April 30 to May 16 we will be in Eclipse Season. This is time to begin something new! With the solar eclipse on April 30 in conjunction to Uranus, known as the planet of chaos, you may have some surprise pushes during these two weeks between eclipses to move you onto a new road, Remember, eclipses are known for their unpredictability. Uranus shows us that we don’t have to keep doing things the way we always have done in the past, or the way everyone else expects us to. Uranus shows us that we have choices.
Time for a new adventure in life! Also during the first two weeks of May, Mercury, known as the planet of communication and travel, goes Retrograde in Gemini AND Jupiter heads into Aries! All of this will bring change to our current situations!
May 2 – Venus enters Aries
Venus represents two main areas of our life: love and money. During this time we will feel encouraged to be honest and direct about our feelings regarding our romantic partners and to finances. Aries does not hold back! Use this transit to be honest with how you feel emotionally.
May 5 – Sun Conjoin Uranus in Taurus
As the Sun unites with Uranus today, you’ll be eager for freedom and ready to break out of the cage! This will likely bring exciting events, but do your best to not be too impulsive, as you could regret it if you’re not thinking carefully.
May 10 – Mercury Retrograde in Gemini
Mercury will retrograde through Gemini for the first half of this transit, which can make it harder to express ourselves clearly or think logically. This could delay travel plans and confuse communication for the next three weeks. Always pack your patience!
Then on May 22, Mercury goes back into earthy Taurus, money and resources may get dragged into the retrograde confusion, too. Be sure to double check your receipts, be precise in your communication, and re-read those text messages and emails before sending.
This Mercury Retrograde occurs between two Eclipses heightening its energy and making us extra sensitive to its effects. All of this intense energy can affect our emotional and mental state of mind.
When Mercury enters retrograde, or the underworld as ancient astrologers used to say, its energy shifts to a more internal, reflective state. Information, intuitive insights, or psychic messages that have been hiding in the shadows can come up into our awareness. We are encouraged to use this energy to go slow, to look back over things, and contemplate before moving ahead.
May 10—Jupiter Moves Into Aries
For the first time in 12 years this makes this event one of the big cosmic changes for the month and the year! As Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system, we definitely feel it when it moves into Aries.
Jupiter will stay in Aries until October 28 when it will dip back into Pisces. It will then return to Aries just in time for the December 21st Solstice. Jupiter in Aries brings more independence, more innovation, and a greater entrepreneurial spirit into the collective.
Aries is the sign associated with new beginnings, so we may begin to feel things shift into a new state, especially since the pandemic has changed so much for so many. On a personal level, Jupiter in Aries can be a very motivating and energizing placement. Use this energy to fill your cup, to make time for movement, and to care for your physical body.
May 15 – Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio
Destiny has arrived!! Spiritually and astrologically, we see eclipses as extremely important events because they bring monumental beginnings, endings and turning points within our lives.
This powerful lunar eclipse in Scorpio brings intense emotional and energy of transformation. Blood Moon Eclipses are highly prophetic and can activate our soul contract, bringing about situations that catapult our soul to the next stage of its evolution, sometimes quite abruptly! There is no doubt, we will all be feeling the effects of this Eclipse!
May 15th, 2022 – Venus Conjunct Chiron In Aries
Venus deals with our emotions and Chiron is the wounded healer. Chiron’s role is to assist in our wholeness. To do that, Chiron will trigger repressed or unconscious feelings and old wounds that will require our attention. This is all about the healing process and right in line with the eclipse energy. Finally dealing with the unavoidable. This is all part of the healing process. This transit is about healing the heart.
May 17 -Mars and Neptune Conjunction in Pisces
Mars energy is forceful and when it conjuncts Neptune, the planet of divine guidance and surrender, the message is: don’t push your way through. Listen to subtle messages, watch for serendipities and find a higher purpose for your actions. When we’re open to receiving divine guidance, our actions have meaning and impact. Avoid negative environments and people.
May 21– Sun Enters Gemini, Sun Conjunct Mercury
Happy Birthday to all Geminis out there! This is a time to be open-minded and curious. This is a very powerful time with the sun conjunct Mercury. If you have any Mercury projects in mind (writing, communication, trips, any type of media), this is a truly remarkable opportunity to put them into motion.
May 25th – Mars Enters Aries
Mars rules Aries, and therefore its power is boosted. Our energy is spontaneous, forward-looking, and even courageous under this influence. Our competitive spirit is strong and this brings confidence and courage. Full speed ahead!
May 30—New Moon in Gemini
This new moon presents opportunities to commit help us with our personal goals. Because Mercury is still retrograde, this is a good time to re-evaluate the way we communicate with others. Powerful time to make important changes in our lives!
May is a bold month to set intentions that are primed for your wellbeing. Schedule some self-care and take steps to recharge your energy. If your plate feels overwhelmingly full, this is also a good time to start creating space so you can better manage your stress levels.
