General Tendencies for All Sun Signs
For all the tragedies, conflicts, and just plain crap that we have endured the past month (or two), May will bring blessings and balance. We will have everyday ups and downs. But, none of the heavy planets will be hanging over us, like they were last month. Mars will finally be turning direct on May 19th, and Jupiter and Saturn will actually be sending their blessings for Memorial Day weekend. Make the most of May, because dear Mercury will be doing his retrograde thing again in June.
May 1st begins on a Thursday, and we could find our energy is jerky on this ancient holiday of Beltane. There may also be delays and misunderstandings as the weekend of May 2nd begins, but by Saturday, May 3rd, our minds will be clear, and we will be ready to make some changes in our lives.
If you are out and about very late Sunday night, May 4th, look up! There could be some falling stars to wish upon as we begin to pass through the Eta Aquarids meteor shower (dust from Halley's Comet).
The Eta Aquarids meteor shower will hit its peak as the week of May 5th begins on Cinco de Mayo. The astronomers say it will be easiest to see looking east just before sunrise. So stay up late or get up early. They are forecasting 30+ meteors per hour! The rest of Monday could be just as fruitful after the Moon enters Leo, midday.
People will be optimistic and promises could be very big through Tuesday May 6th with the Sun and Jupiter shaking hands.
The Moon will be void of course most of the day on Wednesday, May 7th, and that will keep emotions flat. But, Mercury will also enter his home sign of Gemini on Wednesday, encouraging logical and creative thoughts.
The Moon will enter detailed oriented Virgo on Thursday, May 8th, and we may be ready for some cleaning, scrubbing, and organizing as the week approaches its end.
Our cleaning binge could continue through Friday, May 9th, as the weekend begins. And, we may have neglected some of our responsibilities in our organizing frenzy. Those duties could be haunting us on Friday and Saturday, May 9th and 10th. Hopefully buying a Mother's Day gift won't be one of those forgotten duties, because there could be a few more problems to deal with on Mother's Day, Sunday, May 11th. Venus will be angry with Mars, and Mercury will be throwing rocks at Neptune. Mom could be touchy, and we may find others imposing upon our hospitality. Some will be drowning their problems with their addictions, so use extra caution driving.
Our emotions could be rather flat as the week of May 12th begins, but our minds should be sharp with Mercury dancing with Venus and Mars. Conversations and writing should flow smoothly.
Tension could begin building on Tuesday, May 13th, as the Moon approaches the Scorpio Full Moon this year and Venus picks an argument with Pluto and Uranus. We may be dealing with our own psychological imbalances and possibly judging others too harshly. Mercury will also be sending positive vibrations from his place in the zodiac, so we could find emotional support. If we can maintain our optimism, we may find a few rewards this week.
The Moon will be void of course again as the weekend of May 16th begins, so we may find we are not much in the mood for talking on Friday.
The Moon will enter serious Capricorn on Saturday, May 17th, and many will be ready to "get down to business." It's going to be a great weekend for work and reaping the fruits of our labor. There could be an emotional upset on Sunday, May 18th, and some of us may spend the day sulking. But, many will find the day to be very productive.
Mars turns direct as the week of May 19th begins, and Venus will be out of phase with Saturn bringing up subconscious romantic fantasies. We could be restless, to say the least, on Monday May 19th, but life will enter normalcy as the Sun enters Gemini on Tuesday, May 20th.
The rest of the week should bring creative ideas and emotional support for many. Intuitions will also sharpen under the Pisces Moon as the week approaches its end.
Faith and inspiration could be in the air as our Memorial Day holiday weekend begins on May 23rd with Jupiter and Saturn joining forces. The Moon will enter the "me first," sign of Aries on Friday afternoon, and most of us will be ready to begin a new project or perhaps a new relationship. Our motivation and our illumination should continue through Sunday, May 25th, and then our desires may decide to slow down a bit after the Moon enters stable and steady Taurus on Sunday evening.
Memorial Day, Monday, May 26th, should be a very pleasant day, with many of us taking time to enjoy the life around us.
Our last week of May will begin on Tuesday, May 27th. After the long holiday weekend, it is likely we will find our judgments are off with with the Sun and Neptune at odds. We may feel happy and calm on Tuesday and Wednesday, May 27th and 28th, but we may also make some stupid decisions.
The Gemini New Moon will be on May 28th, and we may really find our energy is scattered. Our minds will clear but our emotions will flatten on Thursday, May 29th, so it would probably be best to postpone any major decisions until Friday, May 30th.
We will probably be ready to finish some projects, especially at home, as the weekend of May 30th begins. It will also be a great weekend for family gatherings and special dinners under the influence of the Cancer Moon. A backyard barbecue may be just the thing to complete this magnificent month.
As I mentioned above, Mercury will be turning retrograde in June. Mars will also be crossing back over his battle ground with Pluto and Uranus focusing our energy in negative directions. There could be relationship problems and major disputes in June. Check back next month to find out more.
