Happy May, darling Pisces! A full moon last month encouraged you to stop acting insecure in matters of love. Anyone would be lucky to be with you. On Monday, May 3, messenger Mercury enters popular Gemini and your 4th House of Home and Family. This transit may bring a visit from a family member or a change in your home life. Like so many of us, you likely put travel and visiting loved ones on hold during the pandemic. Now, with the vaccine rolling out, life is slowly opening back up and people are starting to socialize more. However, this can also be difficult and you may need to take things slowly after being cooped up; don’t be afraid to set boundaries and go at your own pace.
A few days later, on Saturday, May 8, the romance planet Venus also enters Gemini and your 4th House of Home and Family. Dealing with family can sometimes be stressful, but this indicates that a romantic partner, friend, or crush will be there to hold your hand. No matter what’s going on in your personal life, know that you can lean on loved ones for support. You just have to ask for what you need.
Use the new moon in sensual Taurus on Tuesday, May 11 to set intentions. Many powerful transits take place later in the month, helping you manifest what you desire. But, sweet Pisces, you can’t get what you want if you don’t know what you want, so meditate and journal to process feelings from the past year and plan a path forward.
On Thursday, May 13, lucky planet Jupiter enters your sign, Pisces, lighting up your 1st House of Self. This transit is beneficial for everyone, but because it falls into your sign, you may even see dreams turn into reality, so mark this date in your calendar. The 1st House of Self is associated with childhood, and with growing up. But we are always growing, and there are so many good things waiting to happen to you. Major milestone events you plan for, such as making a big move or getting a book deal, may suddenly come to life. Embrace the goodness that comes. Even when it looks like something happens overnight, it is usually the sum of years of hard work.
Embrace joy and optimism, because social Gemini season starts on Thursday, May 20, and your calendar is about to get busy. When you’re left alone, you can stew in your emotions, so it’s important to see friends. However, after so much social distancing, you may have some nerves about real-life hangouts. Saturn, the rule-maker of the zodiac, goes retrograde from Sunday, May 23 to Sunday, October 10. During this time, everyone must set strict boundaries around socialization to ensure safety and respect each other’s comfort levels. Being a flexible water sign, creating boundaries doesn’t always come naturally to you, but this is the perfect opportunity to practice.
There is a chaotic full moon and lunar eclipse in Sagittarius on Wednesday, May 26. Eclipses can be dramatic, and most people will do best laying low during this time. However, you may receive some good news on this day surrounding whatever intentions you set out during the new moon earlier this month. Just remember to spell-check your emails and texts before you accept a date or job offer. Finally, Mercury goes retrograde on Saturday, May 29, but don’t stress, you can handle it. Welcome the love that comes your way, stay safe, and we’ll see you in June!
