Welcome to May, sweet Taurus. Last month, you took some time for yourself as you worked through some tough emotions. Because your ruling planet is beautiful Venus, you are the master of self-care, Taurus. But when communication planet Mercury enters chatty Gemini on Monday, May 3, lighting up your 2nd House of Possessions, you’re ready to make some money. Due to the way the economy has affected the pandemic, many of us suffered financial setbacks. However, many of us have also been grappling with our relationship with money and capitalism as a whole. If you haven’t already, it may be time to ask yourself if you’re being properly compensated for your time. This transit helps you ask for your worth.
Venus also enters Gemini and your 2nd House of Possessions on Saturday, May 8. This beneficial transit sprinkles fairy dust all over your professional inbox. If you’ve been waiting for the right time to apply for a new job or ask for that raise, now is it. Use the new moon in your sign on Tuesday, May 11, to meditate on your goals. Visualize them coming true.
Lucky planet Jupiter enters dreamy Pisces on Thursday, May 13. Following the theme above, this transit helps you manifest your dreams into reality. Write down what you want in a journal or create a mood board. Rituals help us become aware of our desires and turn them into action — that is the power of witchcraft.
Flirty Gemini season then begins on Thursday, May 20. Get your sleep when you can, because both your social and professional calendars are about to be booked. Just make sure to continue working in enough time for self-care. Even if you haven’t figured that out yet, when strict Saturn goes retrograde from Sunday, May 23 to Sunday, October 10, you’ll be pushed to learn how to balance a blossoming social life with your emotional needs. Earth signs are known for being grounded, Taurus, but you are still prone to anxiety and need time alone to unpack your brain.
There is a powerful full moon and lunar eclipse in bossy Sagittarius on Wednesday, May 26. The light of the moon may seem like an ideal setting to ask your crush out or to write and pre-schedule an email to ask your boss for more money, but eclipses are chaotic times. People may be on edge, and there may be unexpected chanes. It’s best to use this day to relax and take care of loose ends. Trust that there will be time to do the things you want when everything settles down and take a moment to get some extra sleep or catch up on TV.
The month ends with Mercury in retrograde starting Saturday, May 29. People tend to freak out when they hear Mercury is retrograde, but fear not, strong Taurus. You’ve lived through plenty of these and always come out on top. Just double-check emails and block your toxic ex. See you next month!
