Welcome to May 2020! We are almost half way through the year, how is that so? May 2020 promises to be another active month. A lot of this activity will be felt internally, as 3 planets( Venus, Jupiter and Saturn) all turn retrograde. Going within and: re-directing, reflecting, and revising our intentions and plans will be the themes for this gorgeous month.
We begin the month on May 5-6th, with the North and South Nodes, leaving the signs of Cancer and Capricorn and moving into the signs of Gemini and Sagittarius. The North and South Nodes are fated, elliptical points on the moon’s axis. The nodes shift signs every 18 months, propelling us to new collective: events, lessons and tests. The North node represents: where we are headed, destiny, fate and the unknown. The South node represents: where we have been, the past, what is familiar and known. As the North Node moves into the sign of Gemini, our focus be directed to: communication, local travel, curiosity, getting down to the details and learning. As the South Node moves into Sagittarius, there will be tests and major releases among: big minded thinking, international travel, secondary education and faith. Wherever Gemini and Sagittarius are located in your natal chart is where a lot of fated and karmic lessons will be activated for the next year and a half. The last time the North and South Nodes were in the signs of Gemini/Sagittarius was from October 2001- April 2003. You might want to look back to events from around that time, as you might see similar themes and situations re-occur.
On May 7th, we have the Full Moon in Scorpio at 18 degrees. Full Moons herald: completions, manifestations and endings. Scorpio, the 8th zodiac sign, deals with: death/rebirth, power, transformation and shared resources. The Full Moon in Scorpio will prompt an awakening of how we cultivate our power, and allow things to die in our lives, so new foundations can be born. This deep and watery full moon will ask that you release and allow for transformation to occur. Projects and plans that involve shared resources could be highlighted and the universe is asking us to get comfy with letting go and allowing divine to take the wheel. A hidden source of power will emerge that has previously never been seen. All we have to do is trust and a super power will be born from within.
The mid month is quite active with a flurry of planets moving retrograde. Retrograde planets are all about: re-doing, reflecting, re-vising and going within.
On May 12/13th, Venus, the planet of: love, beauty and pleasure, turns retrograde in the sign of Gemini, before moving direct on June 26th. Every 18 months, Venus turns retrograde and our shift moves to reflect the inner lessons within: love, self- worth, money and pleasure. Venus retrograde in Gemini will bring a heightened focus to how we communicate our love and affection to others and how willing we are to learn from these experiences. There is a light and breezy energy to the air sign of Gemini and lots of curious love situations could play out at this time. This is a great transit to go and learn a fun new skill or take up an old hobby that has long been forgotten. Also, like any retrograde experience, lovers and friends could return from the past, with little to no warning, lol.
On May 20th, the Sun, which rules our: ego, vitality and life force shifts from the earthy sign of Taurus, into the air sign of Gemini. We now move from more practical and rational thinking over to curiosity and flexible ways of being. Two days later on May 22nd, the moon, becomes new at 2 degrees of Gemini. New Moons herald: fresh starts, initiations and beginnings. Gemini, the 3rd zodiac sign, deals with: communication, learning, curiosity, play and child like wonder. The New Moon in Gemini will be a time where we can begin new exciting plans around business endeavors and educational pursuits. Our minds will be quite active and a renewed sense of wonder and intrigue will prevail. This is a great new moon to begin a project that requires a lot of attention to detail and a sense of play and malleability.
May 2020 is a month of many shifts and turns. As we all have become quite accustomed to life’s shifts and changes, this month, will ask us to remain grounded yet open. There is so much beauty to be discovered when we slow down and take it moment by moment. A lot of lessons and past events could re surface this month, so its best to take it one step at a time and remember to be extra gentle and understanding with yourself. May 2020 promises to bring: an inner awakening to our strength and power, reflections on who + what we truly love and the belief that even after the biggest storm comes the sun to greet us again.
