VIRGO

This could be a good month for you financially as the planet of riches, Venus, connects with the planet of ‘lots of’ aka Jupiter. It is definitely a very auspicious sign for you regarding cash. However you could also find yourself breaking the good Virgo habits of a lifetime and overspending now, too. Jupiter can make us go overboard. So watch your budget, if you’re on one (and PS studies show most millionaires do budget. Who knew?) If you want more money, then you need to make sure you believe in yourself, too. The greater your self-belief, the greater your ability to attract cash with your talents.

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.

Under this Saturn cycle, with Saturn in your 4th House, take responsibility on the home front for best results …

No matter how old you are, no matter how long you’ve been living away from home, or whether you’re a grandchild or you have grandchildren or both, one of the major issues for you with Saturn’s arrival in your fourth house is independence. And while you’re working on that aspect of your life, see also, inner stability. These are the major life lessons on offer to you from the Cosmos now. Accept them gracefully and you will prosper.

You are being given a big opportunity to take a deep breath and look inwards. It’s time to think about your roots and where you come from, as well as where you belong.

For some of you, reminders from the past will come creeping out of the woodwork and some childhood fears will be addressed. OK, as you sit here reading this, that might sound a little scary. But why do you think that people around the world pay psychiatrists and the like to listen while they talk about their childhood? There’s a simple reason—because it can unlock fears. If you can see where your fears come from you will be better equipped to deal with them. We all have stuff that we base our emotions on. What happened to you as a child that holds you back now? Saturn’s move through your fourth house gives you a chance to rebuild ‘broken emotions’.

For folk who have already faced their childhood fears, there are other lessons in store. Being more grown up when dealing with your family is one possibility for growth here. No matter how old you are, it’s time to act maturely where your nearest and (hopefully) dearest are concerned. Responsibilities of the family kind are coming your way. For some, this can mean having a child while for others it can mean simply sorting out your family home—physically rebuilding or fixing that leaky roof, for example.

Your parents could help you if you’re still talking to them. If you’re not talking to them you may well have the chance to work things out with them during the next few years. You have a chance to make your dreams come true where family is concerned now but the energies you are working with are demanding and won’t give you much for free.

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 weeks, there have been stalls and queries. Now it’s time to anaylse the facts. For you, Mercury has been going backwards in your EIGHTH HOUSE of shared finances (credit cards, loans, salary) and sex. 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? Your finances will start to make more sense – and you should find there are few misunderstandings with your partner.

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 Virgo this is in your 8th house, related to joint finances; credit cards; debts; sex; anything you consider taboo; inheritance; transformation. 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 this week moves into your 10th house – that’s the part of your chart connected to your career and reputation. You can expect to start feeling a whole lot more ambitious – at the very least, you need to use the coming four weeks to think about the direction your career and/or life is headed in and if you’re happy with that. If not, then the next New Moon brings your chance for change. If you know you’re being asked to do more than you can manage at the moment, don’t be afraid to speak up. You’ll be glad you did later. Assuming you are not feeling overwhelmed, this could be the time when you get some kind of recognition or award for your hard work – lap it up!

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:
Over the past few weeks, you’ve hopefully allowed yourself the luxury of caring less about the details and more about seeing The Big Picture. With any luck, you now have a much clearer sense or either where you are going (in a metaphorical sense) or where you want to go (in a literal sense). There has been mind expanding going on – via travel, dreams of travel, talk with someone with connections far away or study. Now, though, as you might have guessed, it’s time to rein yourself back in and check out what’s going on in your own backyard. There are little tasks and chores which need to be attended to before you head off for the wild blue yonder.

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:
Let’s hope you’re feeling revved up about your career or studies because the New Moon taking place this month is flooding your professional life or your student life with potential and ambition. If you’re already on the right path in your working life, this lunation here can really amp things up. However, if you’re struggling professionally and not quite sure where to turn, use this New Moon as a marker. Over the coming four weeks, you need to really put yourself out there in terms of talking to experts who can help you get where you want to be career wise, and also in terms of very basic things like research your job market.

SUMMING UP

This is the time for you to go for it, when it comes to your professional life. You have a rare visit from driven and determined success-seeker Mars in your Career Zone. Don’t be timid when it comes to chasing work wins. Your natural inclination is to be polite – that’s great, but you also need to keep that competitive edge sharpened.
