The May Astrology Is All About Moving Forward
It’s finally time to say goodbye to so many of these retrogrades and get things going once again. With the sign of Taurus in peak performance, it’s not only pretty out there but more peaceful too. Do the Taurus thing and get in touch with your senses. Breathe in the words, “I survived” and exhale a “Hallelujah.”
I really like what I see when I look out into the planetary terrain in the month ahead. We’re entering a zone where we’re being pushed into mixing things up- in a good way. With Saturn and Uranus working together quite nicely, we’re going to start seeing some new opportunity to make the changes we want. At the very minimum, there is more ease in it all.
Anything that’s been in a rut now has the potential to breathe new life. Transformation is in the air. Many of us are looking for new experiences and May’s planetary terrain is just the ticket we need to get in touch with them.
There will be a fair amount of spice too– so make sure to cross dull off your “what’s in store” list. We’ve got a high-energy Scorpio Full Moon and a Gemini New Moon that will both get us all talking!
The May Hot Spots Include:
Mercury Direct, Scorpio Full Moon, Mars Jupiter Trine, Saturn Uranus Trine, Gemini New Moon & Mars Saturn Opposition

The month of May kicks off with a ‘feel good’ vibe as the Moon travels through her favorite sign of Cancer. May 1st also marks the celebration of Beltane, an ancient Celtic festival that marks the halfway point between the Spring Equinox and the Summer Solstice. It’s a day to celebrate fertility as well as abundance and most importantly an ‘attitude of gratitude.’
I know that all of us will be very grateful for Mercury’s direct movement on May 3rd – which officially ends the 2nd Mercury Retrograde of 2017. It’s now time to officially move ahead on all those things that were put on hold. As we look back on this aggravating period, don’t forget to give yourself credit for all the redos & readjustments made over the last 3 weeks. They will all benefit in the long run!

“HIGH ENERGY SCORPIO FULL MOON”
Mercury and Uranus collide for the 3rd time creating some genius outside the box thinking (as well as some unexpected twists) on May 9th.Combine that with the super productive power of the Sun’s trine to Pluto at the same time and many of us are going to be on fire — in a good way!
The hottest news of the week will no doubt be the Full Moon in Scorpio taking place on May 10th. But with that being said, there is a ton of other planetary action happening alongside it.
Action driven Mars gets in a rather nasty entanglement with Neptune on May 11th which will drum up some hidden issues on the tails of Scorpio Full Moon. Thankfully, Jupiter will swing in to save the week on May 12th with a lucky pop!
I also want to give a loud shout out to all my mother’s out there in honor of Mother’s Day on May 14th. Happy Mother’s Day to all my Astro loving moms – including my own! Read more about the Moon-Mother Astrological Connection.

“OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE A CHANGE”
Communication centered Mercury will re-enter the sign of Taurus as we kick off the week ahead. Most importantly, Saturn will make a very important trine to Uranus on May 18th/19th igniting an opportunity for many of us to step outside the box and make a change or find an adventure. This energy is an important part of the 2017 planetary mix pushing us to ‘change our ways.’
The Sun will transition into the young at heart sign of Gemini on May 20th. We’re now moving into a new zone of needing to be spontaneous, mingle & have a little fun as a result!

“MANEUVERING THROUGH THE GEMINI NEW MOON”
A big week is in the making and it’ll likely center around the high energy Gemini New Moon, taking place on May 25th. It won’t stop there though because energy will continue to build as the week goes on. Expect road blocks, obstacles and the need to be flexible on May 28th especially with Mars and Saturn involved in a tense face off. This is a time to lay very low because the heat is on!

“MONTH END GRAND FINALE”
Mars and Saturn will still be involved in some tension as the week kicks off so keep an eye out. May 29th, marks Memorial Day in the United States which is a day we honor all our fallen soldiers as well as those who have served. I have no doubt that a lot of us out there will have our own personal story (or two) to tell about the Memorial Day Weekend activities as a result of the planetary tension. Plan to be around people you like or very low-key events is my advice.
Despite whatever tensions surface, the month will close out on a very high note. On May 31st, Mercury will be igniting the power of Pluto in a good way helping to ease any burdens. Venus, the planet of love, will also be moving towards creating some very favorable sparks.
