Read for you Ascendant, Sun and Moon.
Last month was huge, and so April (at least the first half) brings a much needed respite – a time to catch your breath, process what has been showing up for you, integrate the energy and even find some much needed medicine in the woundings that have surface during March. Later this month we have an eclipse season (which will start on the 20th of April) and Mercury Retrograde (on the 21st). That might sound ominous, but really these are necessary energies helping you to cleanse and awaken to a new understanding of yourself (on the back of last month). Think of it like a much needed detox and a time to rest.
The first half of this month has you focused on finances, and that is going to ramp up as Jupiter enters Taurus on the 16th-17th of May. This is a time to consider where you are spending money + the intention and feeling you have behind spending it – is it being served with guilt or a sense of wonder? The heart of this energy is one that is calling for you to start to realise that you are so worthy, and in turn to start to see what experiences, relationships and decisions you have been making that are not in alignment with this. The Taurus New Moon on the 19th-20th of May creates the perfect vortex for you to lay new intentions around this very topic, to consider where you are ready to level up, and what it is you wish to co-create with the universe in the material realm. That might be the purchase of a house, a new car, redecorating or renovating. Know that the world externally is holding a mirror up to you so what you change in the material realm will also shift within you. The energy around money should start to shift somewhat around the 21st of May with the start of Gemini Season. This will spell a time of diving into communication – writing, speaking, conceptualising ideas – and it can feel like your mind is working at warp speed. If there are any important conversations you need to have, this Season will provide the necessary ground for you to have them on.
Your birthday season continues until the 20th of May. So the first half of this month is continuing to support the shifts you are experiencing when it comes to your direction in life, the relationship you have with your body and your identity. Also, the energy around communicating what you want should clear up when Mercury Stations direct on the 15th of May. As Jupiter enters your home sign on the 16th-17th of May, it will exacerbate whatever thoughts, behaviours and energy you are sitting in. So if you notice that you’re being too hard on yourself, your ‘punishing’ your body because you think it needs to look a certain way, or getting way stubborn in how you think the world needs to be – try and find some flexibility and compassion for yourself before this date. The Taurus New Moon on the 19th-20th of May offers you the perfect energy to lay intentions around this next cycle in your life. Consider what seeds of intention you wish to lay when it comes to your path and the universe will support you in this. Finally, Gemini season kicks off on the 21st of May, which can feel like a continuation of the energy you have been sitting in around your sense of worth. The difference is that this will be a season where you are called to speak up, to stop people pleasing and let those around you know that you value yourself.
This month is one of endings and new beginnings. The first half of it is asking for you to consider what friendships, relationships, career pursuits, behaviours and thoughts aren’t serving you. In fact these are things that have you people pleasing, forgetting your own values and undermining your sense of self-worth. Before the new can enter (with the start of Gemini Season on the 21st of May) there has to be room for it. So this is really a time of considering what is and isn’t in alignment with you – the best way to do this is to listen to your body (it can’t lie). As your ruling planet, Mercury, goes direct on the 15th, issues around communication and technology will start to be resolved. This also creates the perfect time for you to speak up and get really clear on what you are willing to let go of. Jupiter will enter Taurus on the 16-17th of May acting like a guiding light in this pursuit – dispelling any ignorance and helping you clear up current + ancestral energy that has had you questioning your worthiness. The Taurus New Moon on the 19th-20th of May is the perfect place to lay new intentions around the connection you have to yourself, your values and the energetic flow of money. Gemini Season will kick on the 21st, and this makes the time of new beginnings. That space you created earlier in the month has the opportunity to be filled! Pay attention to new paths forward emerging, and even you stepping into more of your authentic self.
Taurus Season has you focused on friendship and it’s highlighting to you – through others – what is and isn’t in alignment. Friendships aren’t made to last forever, rather their role is to bring us into greater connection with ourselves by seeing the parts of us we are yet to own (through them). So if there’s anything that’s been particularly triggering for you in your friendships or closest relationships, this can be the perfect opportunity to see where you are rejecting that within yourself. As Mercury stations direct on the 15th, anyone who has popped up from the past over the last month should strangely start to disappear again. This is also the time to talk to friends about your feelings, knowing how you communicate doesn’t need to be perfect, but just authentic. The New Moon on the 19th-20th of May calls for you to lay intentions around your friendship and social groups – and can stir up strong humanitarian energy. So if there’s some charity or community work you have been looking to do, this is the perfect time to start. Finally as Gemini Season starts on the 21st of May, your focus will shift. You might notice that you want to spend more time by yourself, that your dreams are incredibly vivid and it can even feel like your connection to yourself is changing. Enjoy the pull of this energy.
This month is continuing the building energy around your career and work. If you feel like you’re on the edge of a change in direction, a promotion or a pay rise, then this is the month that can bring that forth. You’ve probably been feeling like things are brewing in this area of your life since the 20th of April. As Jupiter enters Taurus on the 16-17th of May it can feel like possibilities are opening up to you that you couldn’t see before in your job or line of work. These are the types of opportunities that can challenge your own sense of self-worth. As such it’s important to practice surrender and trust in the higher power of the universe. Whatever energy is coming up around your own sense of value, is helping you to own more of your own power and truth. If you are on the job hunt be careful with signing contracts, try to put is off until the 15th of May, when Mercury stations direct. The Taurus New Moon on the 19th-20th of May, is calling forth a time of laying new intentions around your work and career. It can manifest as that long overdue change coming to fruition. Finally Gemini Season will kick off on the 21st of May, and this will shift your focus from work to friendships. It’s time to enjoy yourself, let loose a little bit and find balance from the seriousness of the beginning of this month.
The first half of this month (until the 20th of May) is incredibly lucky for you (particularly after the 15th of May when your ruling planet – Mercury – will station direct). It’s calling for you to surrender to the infinite compassion of the universe. This can manifest as a time of long-distance travel, opening yourself up to learning something new, teaching others from your place of wisdom and even a time of asking bigger questions in your life – and marinating the answers. This energy can take you to the limits of your own sense of abundance, and call for you to start to see the ways you self-sabotage through the need to control and the sense of lack you have inherited through your programming. As Jupiter enters Taurus on the 15-6th of May, this energy will build. It can feel like a process, particularly if you find it hard to put yourself first or to honour your self-worth. Know that you are being initiated into a new understanding of self-value and with that an approach to the energetic flow of money. The New Moon on the 19th-20th of May is the perfect energy to lay intentions around your abundance and ask the universe for help in releasing any blocks around this. As the Sun moves into Gemini on the 21st of May, this will shift your awareness towards your work + career. It can be a time to have important conversations here – based on what you have learnt about your value this month (like asking for a pay rise).
Welcome to a season of transformation and rebirth. In fact you’ve been in this energy since the 20th of April, and it’s continuing to do its work until the 21st of May. With the extra energy of the Eclipse Season – which will wrap on the 5-6th of May - it can feel like you’ve had a proper workout. This is an energy bringing to light old programming – karmic + familial – that has had you underestimating your self-worth, people pleasing and being unable to ask for what you want. As Jupiter enters Taurus on the 15-16th of May, it can feel like there is light at the end of the tunnel. This cosmic teacher is helping you to understanding + embrace your natural abundance, your worthiness and your inherent equality. If you notice there’s still some unfinished energy lingering, then the New Moon on the 19th-20th of May is your companion to help you shift this. Simply ask it – write it down, plant it in the ground, whisper it to the Moon – for help and be specific with the part of your life you’re looking for transformation. Finally, the Sun enters Gemini on the 21st of May, and this bring some much needed relief. Gemini is your lucky season, one that will see you embracing that abundance that you have been working towards over late April and early May. This energy can see you travelling long-distance, studying something new, going on retreat or simply getting curious about the limits you place upon your life. It’s all about finding more freedom for yourself.
This month kicks off with a Lunar Eclipse in your home sign. This can see you bringing to light old programming from your upbringing that focuses on themes like control, power and manipulation. Yes, this is an eclipse that is all about shadow work, something you aren’t afraid of. As Mercury stations direct on the 15th of May and Jupiter enters Taurus on the 16-17th, your attention will be firmly on relationships and intimacy. An area of your life that has been your focus since the 20th of April. You’re being called to learn about self-worth and the values you hold when it comes to commitment, love and how you wish to partner with others – be that personally or in business. The Taurus New Moon on the 19th-20th of May calls for you to lay new intentions in this area – so if you wish to call in a new relationship or deepen an existing this is the Moon to co-create this with the universe (which is simply your higher self). The Sun will move into Gemini on the 21st of May, and this can be incredibly transformational for you. In fact, it can feel like you’re being called to make more of your subconscious conscious, and to be humbled by the ways you sabotage yourself. Gemini season is one of listening to the stories you tell yourself, and understanding if they are actually true – or simply fiction.
This month your focus is firmly on your health and wellbeing. In fact this has been in the spotlight since Taurus Season started around the 20th of April. This energy – which has been intensified by the Eclipse Season – will be at play with you until the 21st of May. So during this time it’s really important to rest, to listen to the whispers that need attention within your body, and remember it’s ok to put yourself first. There is no need for a martyr in this universe. If you’ve had old illnesses or injuries re-appearing know that this should dissipate as Mercury stations direct on the 15th of May. Added to that, on the 16-17th of May, Jupiter will enter Taurus and can help you get to the bottom of any medical, mental or physical issues. Shedding light on what needs to be seen and even bringing teachers and healers to you that can help you work through this energy (know that it has to do with self-worth). The New Moon on the 20th of May offers you the perfect opportunity to lay intentions around your wellbeing and the changes to your daily routine you might wish to make in order to support your health. As the Sun moves into Gemini on the 21st of May, it’s time to celebrate. This is an energy that is moving your focus to relationships – both business and intimate – helping you to speak-up as well as find more joy in how you connect.
This is a month calling for you to lighten up. It’s time for you to find joy, happiness and play in life – and realise it’s not all work. If you’ve found yourself chained to your desk or overwhelmed by responsibility it’s time to look at where that is coming from – most likely something you learnt in your childhood and the way you had to shoulder responsibility for your parents. As Jupiter enters Taurus on the 16th-17th of May, it’s time for you to step into a new definition of abundance and to even start to see the world with more childlike curiosity. This transit can help you shed light on your childhood programming – the stuff that really needs to be released – as well as support you in exploring the world with fresh eyes. You might find you are called to travel somewhere from your childhood or somewhere that will help you remember that early joy. The New Moon on the 20th of May offers you the perfect energy to lay intentions around how you want to take this optimism forward in your life. Listen for hints from the universe and be open to the way it wants to support you in realising that life isn’t meant to be hard but rather your true nature is that of bliss. Finally, as the Sun enters Gemini on the 21st of May your focus will be shifting to your wellbeing and health. The end of this month is encouraging you to consider how you might need to put in place boundaries that allow you to look after yourself – so you can serve the world around you with greater capacity.
The beginning of this month is continuing a focus on your home which started around the 20th of April. This is an energy calling for you to consider buying a new property, leasing your place out, redecorate etc. all in the name of bringing you home to yourself. It’s important to remember that your home is an external reflection of the home you feel within you. So if something feels a little off about where you currently live, use this month (from the 15th onwards – once Mercury stations direct) to makes plans for change. Jupiter will enter Taurus on the 16th-17th of May, which can have you feeling a little itchy and it can stir up questions around your own sense of self worth from your childhood upbringing (in fact this can be stirred up through family members). Know that this is actually a blessing which is helping you to stand in your power and can even help you make those changes you know you need to make when it comes to where you live. In rare cases, this transit can see you moving overseas. The New Moon on the 19th-20th of May is the perfect time to lay intentions around a new chapter you wish to open with your family, with your home and even with the relationship you have with your mother. Think of it like a blank canvas! As the Sun shifts into Gemini on the 21st of May your attention will shift too. The backend of this month spells a time of enjoyment, of lightening-up, and of creativity. If you feel like there has been too much seriousness in your life, this is a means to engage you in your child-like nature.
May sees you stepping into the energy of communication. In fact it feels like there are lot of lessons re-appearing, particularly from your past, that have you needing to be more direct and honest in how you speak. It’s time to move away from agreeing with others even when you feel like it’s not right, and instead trust that incredible intuition you have + use it to guide your voice. As Mercury stations direct on the 15th, the energy around communication that you have been dealing with since late April will start to clear up. Particularly people or issues from the past re-appearing… it can feel like these miraculously get resolved. As Jupiter enters Taurus on the 16th-17th of May, it’s time for you to get curious about your words and to realise what a big impact even the smallest words can have. You might find that you’re called to communicate with a friend overseas, that you start to learn more (maybe through a course) around your channelling abilities or that you dream life starts to get even more prophetic. Use the Taurus New Moon on the 19th-20th of May to lay intentions around how you want to harness this energy. Finally, as the Sun moves into Gemini on the 21st of May, your focus will shift towards your home life. If you’ve been considering moving, redecorating or renovating this will be the time to do it.
