Earth Sign News
Earth signs dominate as May begins which should be good news for you. Talk planet Mercury is in Taurus until the 11th and the Sun remains here until the 20th.
Taurus rules all the good things in your life so this is an ideal time to focus on simple pleasures and be grateful for the things that you do have. This might include romance, your children, creative projects or your skills and talents.
Earth signs, like yourself, are often at their best when you have a project to keep you busy. You need something to work towards that helps you feel you’re achieving something in life, even if it’s not within traditional parameters.
Smell The Roses
Also, it’s a good time to slow down the pace if you haven’t already. Take time out to be in nature, smell the roses, relax, play and seek enjoyment. Some times, it’s literally by walking in nature and on the earth that you feel more grounded, stable and secure.
This is a good month to put some changes in place that focus on your well-being and lift your spirits. Mercury and the Sun team up with Pluto and Jupiter in Capricorn on the following dates: 9th/10th and 15th/17th.
The theme is rebirth or renewal. There could be news of a pregnancy or birth. Or perhaps, you’re developing plans to help your children, to educate and teach them.
It’s also a good month to commit to a new skill or talent. Anything artistic or hands-on is likely to bring you fulfilment.
And, don’t rule out love. It’s not the easiest environment for meeting someone new but when planets are in Taurus, romance beckons. The Full Moon on the 7th is gorgeous both for love and soul-mate connections. Reach out to others and be around people who are good for you.
Work & Health
There’s also a strong focus on the star sign of Gemini this month, which rules your work and routine, how you serve others and your health. You may prefer to be busy and hav work or a project to get your teeth into.
This is about finding work or activities that fulfil you and benefit other people as well as yourself. You may choose to volunteer or coach others. Gemini is the sign of communication, both the written and spoken word.
Mercury’s here from the 11th to the 28th, the Sun enters Gemini on the 20th and Venus, the planet of relating is here all month. Plus, a key date is the 22nd when there’s a New Moon in this same sector of your horoscope. This would be a great date to apply for a job, get back to work or launch a project.
The focus on Gemini urges you to pay attention to your body and try out different ways to benefit your health, e.g. a new fitness routine. Or, experiment with alternative health remedies or vitamin supplements.
It’s important to look at what you can do on a daily level to boost your well-being. It may be as simple as incorporating a regular walk into your routine or doing a crossword to keep your brain cells moving, but the focus is firmly on looking after yourself. This may be especially important in May if you’ve become a couch potato during lockdown.
Keep close tabs on money matters too this month. Action planet Mars leaves Aquarius and your personal money sector on the 13th. This coincides with your planet Saturn turning retrograde on the 11th, also in Aquarius.
In fact, the mid-month period feels as if the brakes could be slammed on. You may not receive money you were expecting. Or perhaps, you can’t afford or don’t want to pay out money you promised.
At the same time, Venus turns retrograde in Gemini on the 13th and remains on go slow until the end of June. It’s a shifting and changing situation mid-month when you need to be willing to be adaptable and flexible.
