SAGITTARIUS

We all know that life has been quite demanding for many Sagittarians over the past few years, as Saturn has trolled its way through your sign. The good news is that Saturn is the planet of karma, so all your diligence, all the challenges you have overcome, all the ways you have proved yourself strong – all that will start to repay you now. You will start to see how strong and wise you are, and how much you’ve learned! Yes, difficulties in the past few years have made you stronger, wiser and more likely to go the distance.

INFORMATION FOR ALL THE SIGNS

May is potentially a month of change. There is a major stand-out planetary link promising that hard work can finally pay off in quite exciting ways.

So wherever you have been putting your attention lately, this is the time for you to actively look for signs of profit and reward, so to speak.

It might not come in the form of actual finances, but it could.

It could also be a non-financial reward for kindnesses or services you have done to others, and/or for efforts you have made in other parts of your life, including connected to love, friendship, health, family and anything else.

The reason to start looking for the rewards is because looking for them, expecting something good to come this month, will actually help it to come. It’s the law of attraction.

We get what we expect deep down, for better or worse!

So think about where your hard work in any part of your life at all can now pay off. Look for signs that’s happening. Could just as easily be your hard work in the garden as your hard work in an office!

And if you haven’t been making much of any effort with anything lately, it’s time to decide if you want to go on that way or if having a few goals could make life more interesting.

The changes which could happen this month are tied to a rare and positive link between planetary heavyweights Saturn (hard work) and Uranus (exciting turnarounds).

Remember to make a wish on the New Moon on May 26. State your intentions to the Universe (and/or to a trusted friend!)

THERE COULD BE UPSETS…

Know that – for all the signs – the first week of May could be somewhat dramatic thanks to a clash between Saturn and Chiron on May 1. Saturn is the planet of hard lessons and things we didn’t want to know about. Chiron is aka the Wounded Healer – when Chiron is triggered, pressure points get pushed, boundaries are drawn and people do sometimes get hurt, hopefully just before they get healed. So if life is tough for you as May is beginning, chances are you a feeling the power of this link. Note that this is a part of the ongoing two plus years Saturn in Sagittarius cycle which ends this December.

We all have lessons to learn wherever Saturn is in our chart. So here is info for you about where Saturn is in your chart.
, Saturn is hanging out in your image zone, so there are lessons to be learned about how you present yourself now. It’s also likely that this is not your most sociable period ever – you are probably quite at home with the idea of keeping to yourself. You don’t have to be a hermit, but you might find that a little introspection goes a long way.

As Saturn goes through your solar 1st house, fear will become a problem only if you let it. Why are you afraid of being hurt? Think about it. In the past, what has hurt you? Could you have avoided any of those hurts by either keeping your eyes wide open or at least turning your gaze inwards on yourself. If you can come to the realisation that you really have nothing to fear except fear itself, as the saying goes, you will be maximizing the lessons Saturn is offering you now.

You also have a chance to make people take you more seriously now. But do be careful that this cycle doesn’t leave you acting at all dour or stern. Just because people are now seeing you as more ‘grown up’ doesn’t mean you can’t be as charming as you like. If you do use this year to think about how you’re coming across and how that is or isn’t helping you achieve your aims, you will emerge far more self-assertive and self-assured. If you make a concerted effort to come across as responsible and self-controlled this year, you will go far. Taking a more realistic approach to life doesn’t have to be dull, but it can produce substantial benefits.

BUT LIFE SHOULD START TO MAKE MORE SENSE…

Also this month, we have the end of the current Mercury retrograde cycle which has been going on since early April. It started in the sign of Taurus and has reversed back into the sign of Aries, where it finishes on May 4 (May the 4th be with you!)

As regular readers will know, the start and the end of a Mercury retrograde cycle are the strongest. So there could be some madness around the end of the cycle now. If life is a bit haywire or old issues come up to be dealt with, the most important thing you can do is to keep smiling as you sort your way through things.

Here’s some info for your sign about what the end of the Mercury retrograde cycle means for you:

After last month’s retrograde, communications planet Mercury is now resuming normal transmission and going forwards again… If you’ve had endless queries about life, romance, kids and creativity, read on! Mercury has been going backwards in your FIFTH HOUSE of children, creativity and romance. If you’ve been going two steps forwards and one step back where any or all of those subjects are concerned, now you know why! This weekend, as Mercury changes directions, you can expect (or at least allow for the possibility) one last blast of mayhem. And after that? It’s smoother sailing.

MORE HOT MERCURY INFO
Note that there are some ‘hot’ Mercury days after the end of the Mercury retrograde. This info applies to all the signs.

• May 10 – Mercury connects with change-maker Uranus. Something which felt stuck could start to move again
• May 11 – a great day to make a deal ahead of the Mercury/Saturn link in the wee small hours of May 12
• May 15 – if something feels fated today, it probably is
• May 16 – fyi Mercury moves back into Taurus today so whatever you have been waiting for could finally come about soon…

HEALING

As the month progresses, we get into easier territory. May 19 in particular could see a healing following any Chiron-related upsets from the start of the month (see the top of this post for more info about that).

But the biggest astrological event of the month has to be the super power Saturn/Uranus connection on May 19. This is a time when hard work you have been putting into something could suddenly pay off and turn things around for you.

The changes are most likely to come in the part of your chart where Uranus currently is. For you as a Sadge, this is in your 5th house, related to romance; creativity; kids (your own or someone else’s); pursuit of pleasure; love affairs. There could be some very big changes in that department!

LOVE ALERT

Also note that May brings one of the two potentially most loved-up moments we get each year in terms of action between the lots of planet, Jupiter, and the love planet, Venus. They connect on May 20 very early in the morning, making May 19 the night of nights for love and romance in May, no matter which sign you are.

However also notice that this astro event – more technically known as a Venus/Jupiter opposition – can also ask these questions:
1. How much love is too much love?
2. Are you loving too much?
3. Are you spending too much?
4. Are you being over the top when it comes to love or money?
5. Are you loving someone or smothering them?

Given that the Venus/Jupiter action is happening hot off the heels of the Venus retrograde, though, hopefully we will get the Venus joy and delights and pleasure rather than the Jupiter excess. (For super Astro fiends: If you have been paying attention to the Venus retrograde cycle, which was all about exes and values and thinking both, note that May 8 is the official end of the end of the cycle.)

SHINING YOUR LIGHT

Meanwhile, on May 21, the Sun moves into the sign of Gemini.
The Sun acts a spotlight as it moves around our horoscopes so here is what the Sun in Gemini means for YOU:
The Sun now moves into your 7th house, aka Your House Of Love. Over the next four weeks, you can expect love to rise to the top of your agenda. Someone Else is going to be very important, taking up a lot of your headspace. This could be a lover, an ex or a potential new partner. The best lessons you are going to get now are going to be through your most important one to one relationships. Do as much as you can with someone by your side over the next month – partnerships will lead you in the right direction, whereas going it alone won’t feel so good. On another note, this astro-event can bring enemies out of the woodwork. If you need to bury the hatchet with someone, now is the time.

WHERE’S THE MOON?

Plus of course we have the New and the Full Moon this month – no eclipses but still very good chances to work with the lunar energies.
(For Rescu readers who like to work with the Moon and live in Sydney, I am doing a workshop on May 28 in Bondi – you can click here for the details!)

Here are the Full and New Moon times for May:

Full Moon at 21 Scorpio
SYDNEY: May 11, 7.42am
NEW YORK: May 10, 5.42pm
LONDON: May 10, 10.42pm

What it means for your sign:
The emphasis has been on the Everyday – the routines in your life, your daily work and health schedules, what you do for others. The click click click of life. The Full Moon suggests though that it’s time for you to think less about that and more about the hidden parts of life. Spare a moment for the esoteric. Spend some time alone in quiet contemplation rather than throwing yourself onto an endless treadmill of life where you don’t get a chance to think about anything much. There is a lot which has been swirling beneath the surface – and it’s time to allow it up for air.

New Moon at 5 Gemini
SYDNEY: May 26, 5.44am
NEW YORK: May 25, 3.44pm
LONDON: May 25, 8.44pm

What it means for your sign:
How’s your love life? There’s a New Moon in your Love Zone happening this month, which means you’re getting the chance to really reinvigorate your love life. If you’re single, this is the perfect time to draw a line under the past and to move on from your old loves, your old dreams and any old heart aches. If you’re attached, you probably already know about the importance of keeping your relationship fresh – and this New Moon brings in fresh energy, so have a think about some of the times you and your partner can do this month and over the coming month. Remember, some of the best things in life are free!

SUMMING UP

This is an up and up month. For one thing, despite still being under more pressure than pretty much anyone else, you should start to get some dividends arising from your efforts. It’s pay-time for Sagittarians. Moreover, you have pretty good love Stars now, too, all things considered. If you want romantic change, it’s time to agitate for it.
