TAURUS

Wondering how to earn more cash? Keen to release your fear of financial shortfall? If you’re willing to work (part-time or fulltime) and be committed to your financial goals, you could end your current cycle feeling more financially stable than you have done in years. Reason being, you have Saturn, the planet of hard lessons, facts, stability and rock solid security, in your Cash Zone until December. So you have between now and then to iron out worries connected to cash, to get realistic and to plan ahead for a sturdier financial future. It’s really something work towards. Could be your lucky month.

Power date: May 19 – indulge yourself (but careful not to totally overdo it!)

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.

Wherever Saturn goes, lessons follow. Saturn is now hanging out in your solar joint finances zone, limited partnerships offering you the chance to rebuild your financial life and make important financial commitments. Joint finances might sound like an odd phrase, but it’s the umbrella term used in astrology to talk about the 8th house which covers salaries, taxes, inheritances and mortgages, as well as any other joint financial arrangements you can think of (eg in a romantic or business partnership). If the thought of complicated joint financial matters makes you want to run into a corner to hide away, this is the year to face your fears.

Accepting responsibility for your cash life is one of the main lessons you have facing you now, and learning to talk to anyone – from your boss to your bank manager – about dollars and cents, pounds and pence.

If a fear of taking responsibility of your finances is holding you back, this is a good time to rework those fears. Where do they come from? Do you leave bills unopened because you’re scared you can’t pay them, for example! Open them! Examine how you feel about cash and your cash management now. Confident? And if not, ask yourself why not.

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:

For you, Mercury has been going backwards in your TWELFTH HOUSE of secrets and spirituality. If you’ve been having second thoughts about someone, if you’ve been driven by fear lately, if you’ve felt confused when you’re left alone with your thoughts, if you’ve been toying with the idea of being less than honest with someone – the jig’s up! As Mercury changes directions this weekend, you can expect (or at least allow for the possibility) one last blast of mayhem – so do take care and think twice before you try to deceive anyone or before you give yourself too hard a time. This weekend also marks the start of a period when you will do well to withdraw a little and contemplate life, if that’s what you feel like.

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 Taurean this is in your 12th house, related to the deepest, darkest, most sensitive part of your chart. Your fears; your spirituality; self-undoing; withdrawal; secret or hidden enemies. 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:
This week the Sun moves out of your sign and into your 2nd house – many of you may feel a bit of a drop in power levels, as though someone has turned down your wattage. That’s fine and nothing to worry about. It’s just that the Sun has moved out of your sign for another year, so life will feel less like it’s being lived under the harsh glare of a spotlight; life should feel less intense; you now get a chance to catch you breath. Breathe! Over the next four weeks, as this shift takes place, it’s important to think about what you really value in your life – materially and emotionally – and to have a look at how much you love yourself (and ask if you could love yourself more). PS Money is good but don’t make the mistake of thinking that having ‘stuff’ makes you a better person…

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:

Lately, it’s been all about YOU. And guess what? That isn’t likely to change overnight. But the Full Moon in your 7th house of Other People and of Romance means it’s time for you to think less about yourself and what you want, and more about others and what they need. The Full Moon in your Love Zone (which this is) also marks the natural conclusion for relationships which have clearly reached their Use-By date. Compromise is crucial now, if you’re in a good relationship which is going through temporary troubles and delays. For some, closure on an ex is possible at last.

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:

The good news for you is that this month, there’s a New Moon taking place in your 2nd House which is the part of your chart which is all about cash, property and possessions. If you want changes in any of these parts of your life, this New Moon is the ideal time to start to make the changes you want to. Remember that money is energy and it responds quite quickly to our thoughts of abundance or lack. If you know you’ve been thinking negatively about cash, use this New Moon as a marker and decide that henceforth you will turn your thoughts and expectations about cash around.

SUMMING UP

If you can believe in your own abundance, this could be a very lucrative or profitable month for you. You are motivated to work hard to chase the lifestyle you’re dreaming of and guess what? You’re actually getting somewhere, as Mars boosts you. Working on your self-esteem brings amazing results.
