Under the sky of May we encounter the pragmatic influences of Taurus, the subtlety and fluidity of Mars’ actions in Cancer, as well as the eruption of Gemini’s ideas and curiosity. During the first part of the month we are actively concerned with materialization and productivity. We focus on life’s tangible aspects and pursue practical goals. We need security, continuity and the feeling that we have enough resources for a comfortable life. As the fast planets begin their transits through the sign of Gemini, our priorities shift. We start concentrating on the development of the intellect and the skilful handling of language. Just like eternal students, we might try to gather as much knowledge as possible. Let us therefore follow the chronology of May’s astrological events!
On May 3, the Sun and Mercury in Taurus form stressed aspects with Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius. Our individual definitions of material abundance and security confront social rules and boundaries. Mass reforms and the uncommon quality of these times call for changes in our financial strategies. We are looking for modern means of survival and comfort, but we also need to respect the laws of nature and simplicity.
On May 4, Mercury enters Gemini, one of the signs it rules. From this moment on, our perceptions become receptive to a wide variety of stimuli. Our challenge will be to gather as much information as possible and then to communicate it eloquently. We could act like curious students and like dedicated teachers as well. We might find ourselves in a messenger role. AstroFidelia recommends not to skip the process of listening carefully to others just because we feel the impetuous desire to express our own ideas.
On May 9, Venus joins Mercury in Gemini and brings a youthful, friendly rhythm in our relationships. We pay attention to and value the intellectual level of the people around us. We are easily conquered by those who master the art of interesting and funny conversation. Curiosity pushes us to initiate conversations with new people. In love, predictability bores us. We appreciate variety and are open to flirtations.
On May 12, we might feel enthusiastic, strong, courageous, daring unusual movements. Some of these actions may be related to family and home. We feel the excitement of starting something new or inventing a new style of doing something that is already part of our routine. At the same time, we should be able to avoid risking more than we are comfortable with. AstroFidelia recommends using this energy in order to build protections and secure defense systems.
On May 14, Jupiter enters the sign of Pisces for about two and a half months. During this period we will focus on spiritual experiences, developing compassion and idealism. Artistic circumstances bring us enthusiasm and optimism. The stronger our empathy and sensitivity, the more confident in ourselves we will become. But this universal generosity must not make us easy to fool. With Jupiter in Pisces, the risk of illusions and different forms of escapism increases.
On May 17, we can consciously access unsuspected inner powers. This newly discovered force leads us to transformations and progress, but its action is rather subtle. We might feel enlightened about our true nature, while on the outside we radiate magnetism and mystery. Some issues related to power, manipulation and control may emerge. We can also feel that public authorities and institutions have a direct impact on us.
Around May 21, it is advisable to avoid a certain predisposition towards lack of measure and naive optimism. Skillful words may contradict what our soul recognizes as being true and moral. At the same time, AstroFidelia recommends keeping an eye on spiritual pride and on people who identify too much with the role of victim or savior. We can take advantage of this aspect by trying to understand logically some abstract concepts in the religious, spiritual or artistic area.
From May 23 on, Saturn begins its annual retrograde period, which will last until October. During the following months we will concentrate on our inner structures. We will build boundaries and rules, carefully contemplating how our lives really function. We will also have time to analyze and rethink procedures and limits that were imposed on a social level during the previous stages of collective reforms.
On May 27, our desire for romantic perfection is very high. We dream of a mystical love, but we are prone to lose sight of reality. There is a contrast between the mesmerized image we have about certain people and what they actually think or say. Although we may feel confused in some relationships and our feelings are rather blurred, this aspect can bring us moments of artistic inspiration and experiences full of refinement.
Around May 29, we have the opportunity to experience the beauty of communication. Messages from various acquaintances reach us and bring us joy. We are more inspired in creative writing and express our thoughts with pleasant words. We reflect on our relationships. We can also invest in our beauty, becoming more attractive and easily noticed. We improve our artistic techniques and skills by attending dedicated classes.
On May 30, Mercury turns retrograde. From this moment on, we become more introspective and focus on clarifying old information that needs revision. We can resume communication with people we haven’t heard from in a long time. While our attention to the outside world is almost blurred, our inner universe becomes clearer. We approach information and communication from unusual perspectives.
At the end of the month, on May 31, we might feel the need to fight for our ideals. We are led by faith in something higher than our selfish interests. This way we can make impressing altruistic gestures. On the other side, we are prone to imagine all these without putting our intentions into concrete actions. In order to succeed in materializing our purposes, it is helpful to connect to high sources of inspiration.
Being endowed with these clues, we can now welcome May with joy and a business-oriented spirit. Under the protective wings of Taurus we will manage not to lose sight of reality and practical objectives. At the same time, the Geminian energy makes sure we stay well-informed and intellectually active. Family and home themes come to the fore under the influence of Mars in Cancer, while Jupiter in Pisces from the middle of the month invites us to explore the spiritual and artistic realms. Surprises and variety are waiting for us to reach them.
