MAY 2017
Leo (7/23 - 8/23)

This month will hold some energizing astrology for Leos, and the timing will be right to move forward as the effects of Venus and Mercury retrograde clear. Mercury will station direct on May 3rd, 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. If you were born August 14th - August 21st, of any year, you’ll be poised for new beginnings and inspiration, as the degree of your Sun Sign is being activated by some of 2017’s most energizing astrology.

On May 15th, Mercury will move into Taurus and your 10th house of career and public image. This will be a valuable time to make business connections and prove your reliability to authority figures. Public speaking and strategic planning will be favored.

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 particularly motivating time period for Leos. The second half of May and all of June and July will be powerful times to get clear on your long term goals and make a viable plan of action. Leos born August 14th - August 21st will have the greatest opportunity to use the power of this Summer’s Fire Grand Trine to align with their life purpose.

The Fire Grand Trine will be activating your 9th house of travel, adventure, and higher education, your 1st house of self, and your 5th house of romance, creativity, and children. This Summer marks a turning point for many Leos, and the changes coming your way will likely require you to commit to new challenges. It could feel difficult to ignore some of your bigger visions for yourself. You’ll be craving more meaning out of life and in order to achieve what you desire, you’ll need to get out of your “comfort zone.” Putting yourself into new circumstances through travel or learning a new skill will help move you towards your next cycle of growth.

On May 10th, the Scorpio Full Moon will highlight your 4th house of home and family. Relationships with family members may feel intense during the days around the Full Moon. Do your best to stay grounded and encourage open, honest communication. You’ll have the opportunity to strengthen your bonds with loved ones, and it will be great timing to finish home-related projects or balance your house budget.

On May 20th, the Sun will ingress into Gemini and your 11th house of friendship and community. Your social calendar will probably fill up during the coming month! On May 25th, the New Moon in Gemini will provide support for intentions related to making new friends, participating in groups, constructive communication, and enjoying the variety in life.
