Aries - May 2019
Hello, lambs and rams! The world is your oyster for the first two weeks in May, as Venus in Aries continues to boost your charm, charisma and overall attractiveness! It’s a fantastic time for engaging in a spot of social networking to impress those who can help you out in some way with an important life goal, particularly relating to work projects. Mercury also lingers in this area until the 6th, hence the first week of the month is pretty fantastic for positioning yourself at the centre of any significant meetings or discussions relating to your plans and aims. You will express your desires eloquently and persuasively. Venus forms connections with a fair few planets across the heavens between the 5th and 15th, and this is likely to be a busy period in which your social calendar will be full as your popularity increases. Challenging energy from Saturn and Pluto at this time could cause work-related conflicts, however, as authority figures try to pour cold water on your creative ideas. Venus also crosses the nodes from the 3rd to 9th, a difficult day for family disagreements.
Jupiter is settling into retrograde motion in your house of spiritual development now, and the next two months will be important ones for reassessing your spiritual or religious path and whether your views on such matters still make sense. Since arriving in this part of your solar chart in late 2018, Jupiter has been challenging you to live your truth with regard to what life really means to you. At a more day to day level, you could change track on a course of study now, or move to another country through work or relationship commitments. Jupiter and Mars oppose one another during the first fortnight of the month too, so watch out for problems around long distance travel plans and arguments with teachers or learning mentors. Ongoing legal disagreements could also be exacerbated now by exaggerated stories and incorrectly completed documentation.
The new Moon on the 4th injects fresh start energy into your finances, making this an excellent time for settling outstanding bills, opening bank accounts, requesting pay rises and generally just making extra cash through work or the sale of personal possessions. Mercury’s conjunction with Uranus from here between the 7th and 12th is also promising for inventive and original money-making ideas, although your thought processes will be a little erratic here, so it’s not the best of weeks for making important choices about financial matters. Take care around possessions between the 14th and 20th of May too, when Mercury sextiles scatty Neptune; personal items could go missing amid the general confusion and fluster of your life! Be sure to keep tabs on the things that really matter such as your wallet or keys.
May’s lunar cycle reaches a conclusion on the 18th with a full Moon in your house of transformation and regeneration. Full Moons in this part of your horoscope tend to be intense and poignant at a deeply emotional level, as letting go of attachments to people, things or routines suddenly seems to be the order of play. The Moon’s aspect with Pluto makes for an especially metamorphic experience, as the old you gives way to a new, more dynamic and emotionally stable character with a healthier attitude to relationships and self-appreciation. With Pluto currently influencing career matters, a key career change could be in the horizon here, as you move towards a very different and much more fulfilling role in your work. Pluto’s impending conjunction with Saturn is pushing you to positions with more responsibility and prominence. Have a wonderful May!
