Aquarius - May 2019
How are you, lovely water carriers?! Venus’s presence in your communication sector is a winner during the first fortnight in May, as she turns up the dial on your conversational skills! The first fortnight of the month will see you charming all and sundry with your wit, grace and strong sense of social etiquette. It’s a fantastic period to get out there to engage in some social networking and put yourself in the path of those you want to impress. Although this is a highly amicable transit, your need for harmony and agreement could make you less tolerant of those who are rude, loud or aggressive; confrontations of all kinds might also upset you, a rare experience if you are a typically contentious and outspoken Aquarian! Watch out also for Venus crossing the Moon’s nodes from the 4th to 11th, this turbulent connection may cause some issues around private information being revealed in your work place. Disagreements with colleagues could also arise over what may seem like insignificant problems.
Uranus’s return to your domestic zone could be something of a game-changer in May, as a situation in family life has to be radically altered in order for you to continue to function. Unexpected alterations to your domestic set up are likely, as relatives arrive or leave. If you are buying or selling property there may also be some twists and turns, as a sale suddenly falls through, leaving you a little out of sorts. In reality this isn’t as dramatic as it sounds; Uranus is recovering old ground here as he steps back into this part of your chart, so if you really think about it, the warning signs for problems arising here have been apparent for some time! Uranus’s sextile with Mars after the 17th is positive for household renovations of an electrical nature or for purchasing new TVs, stereos or white goods for your home. The new Moon of the 4th also directs positive energy to this area and is fortuitous for changes to décor or the purchase of furniture.
Friendships could feel a little less fulfilling in May, as Jupiter settles down into retrograde motion in your house of friends. This part of your world has seemed so exciting in recent months, with so many new people vying for your attention, but you are entering a period of relative quiet here now, and in this period you may realise that some of these wonderful new faces are not the amazing friends you thought they were! Jupiter’s trine with Venus between the 5th and 15th is promising for spending important leisure time with those who really count in this part of your life. Look out for arguments in your social circle after the 28th however, when Mercury and Jupiter lock horns.
Career ambitions may need an overhaul around the 18th, as the full Moon shines a light on your future plans for working life. Projects on which you have worked for some time could come to fruition now, and you will be looking for something new to keep you busy. Pluto’s energy here suggests that you have been working behind the scenes or for very little recognition in this part of your life for a while; now is the time to show what you can do and finally receive the praise you deserve. The full Moon is like a spotlight, revealing even the darkest corners in order that you can really find the way more clearly. If you’re unhappy with anything you see here, make those changes and set yourself on the career path that is right for you. Have a marvellous May!
