It's important to do the work that's delegated to you, even if you think it's tedious. Discipline now can lead to freedom later.
Monthly HoroscopeMay 2021
May’s Astrology will help you to focus on your finances and making new connections. We’ll still be enjoying forward-moving astrological energies during the first half of the month. On May 15, we’ll enter the shadow phase of Mercury retrograde. Initiate new agreements and make your most important decisions early in the month. The second half of May will have a slower feel, and the Full Moon Eclipse at the end of the month could reveal important information, prompting you to shift your outlook on a relationship or situation.
The Sun will shine in Taurus through May 19, lighting up your second house of resources and self-worth. Money-making activities and plans for your financial future will be supported. On the 20th, the Sun will ingress into Gemini, activating your mind. You could be focused on communications and networking around this time. Because we’ll be approaching a Mercury retrograde cycle that starts on May 29, use the second half of the month to have conversations that bring clarity or closure, and avoid initiating new ideas.
Venus will enter Gemini May 8, remaining in this sign through June 1. This will make it an especially favorable time to make connections for business or pleasure. Those who make their living doing more than one type of work could feel an extra boost under this energy.
The May 11 New Moon will be at 21 degrees of Taurus, and will strongly support intentions related to finances, work, stability, environmental causes, and physical well-being.
The days between May 11 and May 14 will be the best days this month for new beginnings, as we’ll enjoy the burst of New Moon energy and still be outside the shadow of Mercury retrograde. Mercury will enter its retrograde shadow on May 15 and will station retrograde on May 29, initiating a cycle that will last until June 22. Prepare to slow down at month’s end, and spend your energy finishing what you’ve started.
The first Eclipse of 2021 will be on May 26, when we experience a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse at 5 degrees Sagittarius. If you were born on or around April 26, of any year, or have around 5 degrees Aries rising, this Eclipse will be especially empowering. All Aries can be on the lookout for valuable information and realizations that can inspire you in a new direction. Learn more about the Eclipses of 2021 in this YouTube video.
