Libra (9/23 - 10/23)
Communications with loved ones are apt to feel smoother this month as the effects of Venus and Mercury retrograde clear. Mercury will station direct on May 3rd, but wait until after May 17th to make important decisions, 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. With Venus as your ruling planet, you could have felt this phenomenon more strongly than your peers. Themes include self-identity and worth, money matters, and love relationships.
On May 15th, Mercury will move into Taurus and your 8th house of intimacy and shared finance. You’ll have the mental clarity needed to consider long-term plans. If you’re in a partnership, the two of you may decide to deepen your commitment. It will also be an ideal time to assess any shared resources and do some financial planning. If single, you’ll gain a strong sense of what you need to feel stable within a partnership.
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 particularly powerful times to break free from self-defeating patterns in your relationships with others.
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, you’ll be called to look at the ways you accommodate others at the expense of your personal wellbeing. Libras are traditionally known for their artful ability to compromise, however, this can open the door to unhealthy “people pleasing” habits. You’re scheduled to work on positive self-assertion and stepping forward into leadership roles. Don’t be afraid to shine!
On May 10th, the Scorpio Full Moon will highlight your 2nd house of finance and self worth. You may uncover a bookkeeping error around this time, and it will be an excellent opportunity to review your financial situation. If you are sharing resources with another, your joint efforts can yield rewards.
On May 20th, the Sun will ingress into Gemini and your 9th house of travel, adventure, and higher education. Feed your curiosity over the next month by reading books, attending lectures, and/or interacting with different types of people. On May 25th, the New Moon in Gemini will provide support for intentions related to learning new skills, foreign travel, speaking your truth, enjoying the moment, and understanding different opinions.
