TaurusBy Stephanie Shea
Taurus (4/21 - 5/21)
This month, the influence of both Venus and Mercury retrograde will dissipate, supporting new steps forward. By mid-month, the “shadow” effects of both of these retrograde cycles will end, and you will be eager to start making progress on your long-term goals. Mercury will station direct on May 3, but wait until after May 17th to initiate new action as we’ll still feel the influence of the “shadow” phase of this phenomenon until then.
On May 15th, Mercury will move into your Sun Sign. The second part of the month will be an excellent time to present new ideas and exchange information with others. A methodical energy will be available to help you make a practical plan of action. In addition, your ability to communicate in a calm and direct manner will help you to attract the people and opportunities you’re looking for.
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. This will initiate a time for Taureans to bring forward ideas and dreams from their subconscious. The second half of May, and all of June and July will be particularly powerful times to release psychological blocks that have been preventing you from acknowledging and pursuing more excitement and individuality.
The Fire Grand Trine will be activating your 12th house of dreams and intuition, your 4th house of home and family, and your 8th house of the subconscious, intimacy, and shared finance. You’ll be supported in efforts to free yourself from your past and purge limiting beliefs that could have been taught to you as a child. It will be important to stay open to new ideas. Be willing to admit your vulnerabilities and take on new challenges. You have cosmic permission to be a complete beginner! No one will expect you to know it all, but it will be important to take the first steps towards something you want, even if that means learning as you go.
On May 10th, the Scorpio Full Moon will highlight your 7th house of partnership. This will be good timing to see relationships more clearly and talk about the “elephant in the room.” Choose open and honest dialogue over keeping the peace. That said, there will be no need to get overly dramatic. Keep conversations with friends, business partners, or romantic partners focused on the facts and listen carefully to what others are telling you now.
On May 20th, the Sun will ingress into Gemini and your 2nd house of finance and self-worth. For the next month, your mind may be abuzz with business-related ideas. Explore different money-making opportunities. On May 25th, the New Moon in Gemini will provide support for financial goals. It will be great timing to diversify your investments, network for business purposes, and initiate marketing or advertising campaigns.
