The month of May will therefore be good for getting new ideas off the ground and committing to personal or professional goals. Uranus will be moving forward, too, in Taurus, which will add energy to efforts to revolutionize financial systems, technology, and the ways in which we care for our environment. Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto, however, are all retrograde, which will encourage governments, corporations, and other large-structured organizations to revamp from within. As the populace will be stirred to voice its discontent with topics related to banking, socio-economic equality, global warming, water quality, and cultural values, those with the authority to enact policy changes will feel the pressure to do so now.

Mercury will race through three signs this month: Aries, Taurus, and Gemini. We are likely to hear lots of dialogue and discourse within our personal circles and on a global scale.

We can use the same potent energy for stating our dreams and goals. To use a New Moon POWER DAY, simply write down, by hand, a maximum of ten wishes or goals that you would like to manifest in your life.
