Moving further into the energetic spring season, we welcome the start of May with warmth and abundance as we prepare for yet another season of changes and rebirth. Starting off the month, we will be lingering in the sign of the Taurus. Often known as the motherly figure of the Zodiac, the Taurus is an earth sign and values all things balance. They love routine and have a slow but steady approach to their life and truly live by it.
For that reason, the signs may begin to see themselves developing a new mindset toward their goals this month, allowing impatience and worry to fade away as they work to make small and simple strides and make the most of the present moment.
Aside from this, we also welcome the start of the eclipse season this month, as well as Mercury retrograde’s return on May 10. This retrograde will take place in the sign of the Gemini, which could stir some arguments and sensitive energy in our communication sector, as well as our social interactions, and will need to be handled carefully.
Mars and Jupiter are also likely to be quite active this month, bringing expansion, confidence, and action into our space. This could have the signs more eager to try new things and take control over their life. Finally, we will then end the month with the sign of the social Gemini, encouraging more adventures, more social interaction, and a need for expansion.
To sum it up, May is likely to be a wondrous time for the signs to undergo a transformation, find their realignment, and expand themselves in a variety of new ways.
