Aquarius (1/20 - 2/20)
The second half of this month will be a good time to put your innovative ideas to work, as we’ll be finally coming out of two retrograde cycles. Mercury will station direct on May 3rd, but wait until after May 17th to implement new ideas, as we’ll still feel the influence of the “shadow” phase of this phenomenon until then. Venus went direct on April 15th, however, the “shadow” phase is in effect until May 18th. Venus will be moving forward through your 3rd house of communication and learning, which will help you to get clear on what you want and then ask for it in a way that others will find hard to refuse.
On May 15th, Mercury will move into Taurus and your 4th house of home and family. You could feel like staying in and making your living space cozier. It will be a good time to organize your thoughts and make plans with family members. Planning for the future and creating a household budget will be supported.
On May 10th, the North Node will end a journey through Virgo that began November 12th, 2015. The Lunar Nodes represent the points where the orbit of the moon crosses the ecliptic (the Sun’s path in the sky from our perspective on Earth). The North Node is the zodiacal point where the Moon crosses the ecliptic on its way North and the sign it’s in sets overarching themes for our planet. While the North Node was in Virgo, the prevailing energies supported constructive participation, following through with commitments, establishing clear boundaries, and physical wellbeing. Because the Lunar Nodes move backwards through the zodiac, the North Node will ingress into Leo on May 10th.
After this date, the emphasis will shift from productivity to creative expression. The North Node in Leo, Uranus in Aries, and Saturn in Sagittarius will form a Grand Trine in the fire signs this month that will last from mid-May until October. The second half of May and all of June and July will be especially powerful times to make positive changes in existing partnerships or manifest the partnership you desire.
The Fire Grand Trine will be activating your 7th house of partnership, your 11th house of friendship and community, and your 3rd house of communication and learning. This Summer will be the ideal time to work on your social skills. You possess a charisma that inspires others to follow your lead. Consider taking up a cause you believe in and working with others for change. Although you like to move to your own rhythms, your lessons over the coming months will involve the art of listening to others. Even when you are taking the lead, remember that you are only as powerful as those around you. Everyone you collaborate with must feel that their voice is important for you to accomplish success together.
On May 10th, the Full Moon will be in Scorpio and your 10th house of career and public image. Your ability to get to the root of a problem could earn you public recognition. You’ll likely feel focused on your goals and may make a good impression on someone in authority. Avoid any urges to engage in power struggles, however. You will do your best work when you can feel strong without needing others to submit to your will.
On May 20th, the Sun will ingress into Gemini and your 5th house of romance, creativity, and children. A quick wit can help to forge playful connections with loved ones. On May 25th, the New Moon in Gemini will provide support for intentions that involve social skills, lightheartedness, meeting new people, obtaining factual information, and short vacations.
