Taurus - May 2019
Happy Birthday, lovely Taurus! May all your birthday wishes come true! This, of course, is your time to shine, as the Sun makes his annual return to your sign; ambitions, dreams and hopes for the future will be flooding your mind, and you will have the confidence and determination to make some concrete plans about how to achieve exactly what you want. It’s an excellent period for involving yourself in activities which involve leadership, confidence and creativity; you won’t be shy about letting others know how they can help you achieve your vision! The new Moon of the 4th is also a promising time to begin a personal project, and is particularly favourable for new diets, exercise regimes or changes of image. The Sun and Mercury will also combine energies between the 16th and 21st, a mentally busy period, full of thoughts and interesting conversations. This conjunction continues into your financial sector between the 22nd and 26th, when these ideas can be turned into something financially profitable for you.
Lilith is on the move in May, from the 7th she will be directing her attentions to your house of friendships. Lilith is a passionate and impulsive influence, and her presence in this area could set the cat among the pigeons with friends in the coming weeks as jealousy, recklessness and even downright malice suddenly become the dominant themes in your friendship dynamic. Watching your back might be wise here, especially among female friends, as some long-standing resentment and animosity is likely to finally find a voice. On the plus side, Lilith encourages you to embrace your inner self and live your truth at any cost, and this can be an incredibly freeing experience, as relationships with your group of friends become more honest and open. May’s full Moon on the 18th also illuminates ongoing issues in a love relationship, and the Moon’s opposition with Mercury at this time will force your problems out into the open for discussion and resolution.
Venus waits quietly in your house of secrets for her chance to shine during the last fortnight of the month, a transit which could suddenly turn the expression of affection and feelings of love into an intensely private and self-conscious experience! You are more likely to become involved in a secret love affair now, or be made aware of a friend or family members clandestine romantic activities. Venus’s trine with Jupiter between the 5th and 15th is a wonderful time to take a new love relationship to a new and more emotionally meaningful level; this is also a highly psychic time for Taureans, and it’s important around these days that you allow yourself some time for spiritual sustenance. With Venus squaring the Moon’s nodes too, chance encounters with people who can show you the way forward with this part of your life are likely.
Mercury lands in your financial sector on the 22nd, and this last week of May in general should be excellent for discussions about your cash flow. Tackle issues with banks, financial statements and salary problems now and you can’t go far wrong. Mercury does lock horns with extravagant Jupiter after the 28th and into the first week of June, however, and this could be a tricky period for managing your money, as plans to make extra cash simply don’t seem to be taking off. If you run a business from your home or are trying to sell household items online, you could hit a low point during these days, and it might be wise not to make any significant financial decisions around these matters until next month. Enjoy your May!
