Welcome to May, Taurus. Your season began last month. While you have to pass the torch to Gemini during May, the stars have several treats in store for you. First up, on Monday, May 1, transformative Pluto goes retrograde in Aquarius and your 10th House of Social Status. While we tend to have negative associations with these planetary backward dances (and we’re in the middle of a Mercury retrograde), this transit could actually mean great things, especially for your professional life and passionate projects. Pluto is the lord of the underworld, which sounds scary, but it just means this planet is all about death and rebirth. During its backward dance in your 10th House, you’ll see a glow-up at work or in a creative project, which could indicate anything from a raise to finally starting a band. Either way, this transit leaves you feeling like a rockstar.
Give into high self-esteem during May. The stars really, really want you to feel confident and offer up many opportunities to remind you of your worth. Friday, May 5, brings a full moon and lunar eclipse in sexy Scorpio and your 7th House of Partnership. While eclipses are known for being chaotic and often dramatic, they also bring change. However, this change is never out of the blue. Rather, eclipses speed up time and make things happen, despite your best efforts at procrastination, Taurus. Whether you’ve been putting off asking your crush out, defining a relationship, or making plans with a friend you haven’t seen since lockdown, the eclipse should finally make it happen — and you’ll be so pleased with the results. The first week of May is excellent all around for talking things out. Also, on Sunday, May 7, your ruling planet, Venus, enters Cancer and your 3rd House of Communication, giving you an upper hand and solid footing in any discussions.
Overall, May is a happy month for you, Taurus. On Sunday, May 14, Mercury retrograde ends, making the second half of the month flow easier. On Tuesday, May 16, Jupiter, the lucky planet of expansion, enters your sign, Taurus. This transit helps you get what you want and sees your happiness levels grow as you experience forward momentum in your passion projects and professional and personal life. The only thing you need to worry about is managing your time to ensure proper work/life balance as your schedule picks up with dates and welcome obligations. Whether at work, in love, or both, you enter a joyous new phase of life when Friday, May 19, brings a new moon in your sign, Taurus.
If you are currently dating and seeing someone new, the relationship will likely deepen when warrior Mars enters gorgeous Leo and your 4th House of Home and Family on Saturday, May 20. This transit is all about harmonizing NRE (new relationship energy, that buzzy high of falling in love) and LRE (long-term relationship energy or caring stability). However, this transit doesn’t only benefit those dating. It offers grounding and staying power to anything you’re passionate about. This is the perfect time to start monetizing a hobby or growing closer with a friend.
The sun leaves your sign and enters Gemini on May 21, Taurus, but after your exciting month, you won’t care what season it is. Enjoy, and see you in June.
