May opens up with Venus💃🏼 entering Aries ♈︎ on the 2nd of the month and with it definitive feelings of Spring and newness. Aries’ passionate and intense energy will have sparks flying, but be cautious not to jump into a new relationship too quickly. 💖 This intersects with a 9 week, the ending of a numerology cycle, and a fitting time to feel the conclusion of the effects of a harsh, cosmically-charged winter. A compassionate number, this week 9’s energy might have you feeling the need to support and comfort someone who is struggling. 😞 Resist the urge to take responsibility for anything and everyone, however, as giving too much of yourself leaves you neglecting your own needs.
The second Mercury retrograde of 2022 begins on the 10th of May and lasts through the 3rd of June.🤦🏻♀️ This Mercury retrograde occurs in Gemini and Taurus. A time known best for frustrating events and overall confusion, remember you can make the best use of Mercury in retrograde to reflect and gain insight on the past, without putting too much stock on present and future decisions. 🙆🏼♀️ May’s Mercury retrograde intersects with a 1 week, normally a symbol of confidence and action, though this week 1’s energy might be off putting as it tramples the spirit of cooperation and patience in the interest of progress.
A Full Moon total Lunar Eclipse occurs in Scorpio ♏︎ on the 16th and will bring with it a myriad of intense emotions and feelings. 💥 Look for an activity or distraction that can help manage your emotions like exercise or meditation. 🕉 This total lunar eclipse is also a time of potential misunderstandings as communication is disorganized and messy. Go out of your way to express your feelings as clearly as possible to avoid possible miscommunications. This full moon coincides with a 2 week, a valuable time for cooperation and working together. ✌🏼
Venus enters Taurus on the 28th bringing with it a deep, intrinsic motivation for success and determination to move forward. 👍🏾 The last week of the month is a 3 week, a time to let your artistic and creative side shine. Whatever creative energy has been building up, now is the time to highlight it, as the last week of May also produces a New Moon in Gemini ♊︎ on the 30th. Gemini’s energy will have you feeling extra extroverted and looking for socializing opportunities. Seek out people whose creative energies coincide with yours and get those unexpressed artistic endeavors out into the world. Find your focus, as all of this intertwining energy can easily distract you and leave you with a slew of unfinished projects. 🙍🏽♀️
