SCORPIO

If you’ve been exercising or doing anything else to make yourself feel better and more gorgeous, your efforts could be rewarded in May. Ditto if you have been working hard on your inner self with meditation and contemplation. You could start to feel more calm and peace in your life. Your intuition could be very high now too. Learn to listen to it and see what happens when you do – or you don’t. Intuition (inner tuition) is incredibly useful personally and professionally. Financially you could finally get over a hump in the road, or feel as though the brakes are finally coming off cash-wise.

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 now hanging out in the part of your chart governing money. What this means is that over the next two and a half years, most of your biggest lessons will have $$$ signs on them (or pounds signs, or euros marks, depending on where in the world you live..!)

How will this manifest? There are always many, many possible ways. It could be, for example, that you learn a good lesson this year about impulse buying. Perhaps you buy something too quickly and without double checking all the facts and figures and you live to regret it. Or … a far more enjoyable possibility … perhaps you DON’T buy something on impulse this year and you realise later that you did 100 per cent the right thing. Saturn is not a planet given to impulse shopping. In fact, he asks us all to get down and studious. In your cash zone, he’s suggesting you reign in your impulses to go and beat the plastic fantastic a little bit. Instead, use this year to set up the financial systems that are going to work well for you in the years to come.

Another main lesson for you this year is about being long sighted, not short sighted. I don’t mean literally of course. But Saturn is a planet who likes to be allowed to take his time. As well as being in the cash zone of your solar chart, he’s in the part which governs what you value and cherish. So this year, as well as being given lessons about ‘what really matters to you’ you will be asked to look at what you truly value. Once you have that worked out, you can proceed to act upon it.

There is a lesson in not being parsimonious this year too. Don’t be tight with your cash on either yourself or anyone else. I’m not saying go out and spend wildly, but I am saying avoid the temptation to adopt a poverty mentality. There is enough of what you truly value to go around and all you need to do is work towards it.

The good news is that you have a very sober and realistic attitude towards money and what you value and cherish this year. The lesson is learning to value that sober attitude. It might not seem like the world’s most fun angle towards life, but this year a little seriousness will go a long way.

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 – great news for you if your daily life has had you on the hop. For you, Mercury has been going backwards in your SIXTH HOUSE of daily work and health. 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! If, on the other hand, you’ve used the past few weeks to re-direct your daily duties or to get back into health routines you’d allowed to lapse, good for you. You made the most of the cycle. This weekend, as Mercury changes directions, you can expect one last possible blast of mayhem. And after that? Expect a lot less uncertainty in your daily life.

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 Scorpio, this is in your 6th house, related to daily routines, including at work; your health; duty. 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:
Over the next four weeks, you can expect to feel a whole lot more in touch with your Inner Self. It’s a very good time to look at where you are going and what it is inside you that is leading you there. If you’re confused about why you have chosen your current path, this is the time to stop and think. You may soon be able to change directions. On a less ethereal note, this is also the time to have a look at your finances – what you owe, what you’re saving. Pay off as many debts as you can now – you will be very happy you did so in six months time, as the Sun moves into your other money box.

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 Full Moon takes place in your sign which is a sure message from the skies – it’s time to stop thinking so much about someone else, and time to start investing some emotional energy into your own well-being. This is a potentially highly emotional time so don’t be surprised if life feels extra intense. The trick is not to loose your cool, and to stay mindful of the fact that what happens now can be a path to your future. The Full Moon is definitely a marker for you – it can also be a turning point. If you’re not happy about where you life is headed, it’s time to turn and face a new direction.

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:
You have the New Moon in your 8th House this month. That means it’s firing up the part of your chart which deals with sex and money – sometimes separately and sometimes at the same time! When it comes to sex, if your love life is full, do whatever it takes to rev things up. If you’ve been inhibited, try something new. Go as far as you feel comfortable! Moneywise, it’s all about where your money is involved with someone else, so you have a chance for a restart re your pay or salary PLUS it’s a very good time to set out a debt repayment plan.

SUMMING UP

Money might have been a bit tight for a while, or the source of worries, but this month that could all be about to change. You knew that eventually your hard work would have to start delivering some rewards, right? As Saturn in your Money Box connects with surprising Uranus in your Work Zone, that time may well have come.
