Month of May

Aries

Because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of May in your income sector, the solar spotlight is always on your income situation, matters and options at this time of year. However, this is when the ordinary overlaps the extraordinary, for as you move into the new month you are also moving into the final weeks of Jupiter's 12 month quest for income growth and expansion. It wasn't until the Sun returned last month that you moved into the home stretch, with Uranus and Jupiter having spent much of the last 12 months on their own and more focused on the journey.

The Sun's return indicated that it was time to bring things home. It was in the closing days of April that Venus returned, something that has put the planets of money and luck together in your income sector for the first time in over a decade. By the time you move into the new month Venus has been here for less than 24 hours and here until 24th May, she will bring the laws of attraction into effect, making it easier to attract the income opportunities that Jupiter is opening the doors to.

With the Sun here until 21st May, Jupiter until 24th May and Mercury returning on 16th May to keep the momentum going, this is a month long event. Even then, it is not until Mars returns next month that you will have a chance to exploit the full potential. In the meantime, it is the Moon's return to your income sector from 7th May to 9th May that will not only sharpen your nose for money and act as a trigger, but a New Moon on 8th May will be a catalyst for new beginnings and opportunities.

It is a week later that held back by a retrograde phase Mercury will return on 16th May with the smart head for money needed to get your head in the game just as Jupiter moves into his final 10 days. Meanwhile, it is just a few hours after the Sun leaves on 21st May that the Moon will return to your financial sector, coming full circle from a Full Moon that saw them clash back then. Moving through from 21st May to 23rd May, the Moon will clash with Venus, Mercury, Jupiter and Uranus as it moves through, but in a way that can keep you on your toes on both sides of the financial fence.

Taurus

As you move into the new month it is business as usual on both sides of the financial fence, but with a sense that this is about to change. For you, business as usual means no planetary activity in either of your two money houses since the last planet to return to your financial sector in 2023 finally left in February and with just the Moon's monthly visits to keep income and money matters on track. That will be the case when the Moon makes its monthly visit to your income sector from 9th May to 11th May, something that every four weeks can sharpen your nose for money and act as a trigger.

A friendly aspect to the South Node in your work sector and Pluto in your career sector is something that every four weeks will also create a positive few days across the income, work and career fronts. However, as well as leaving you with a sharp nose for money and a download of information to unpack, this is likely to leave you with a sense of anticipation and a gut sense that things are about to change. It is 10 days later that the Sun will return to your income sector, something that at this time each year will always shift the solar spotlight onto your income situation, matters and options.

However, it is what comes next that will be the game changer. On 24th May, three days after the Sun's return on 21st May Venus, the planet of money will return to begin what can be the most lucrative months of any year. However, the game changer comes two days later when on 26th May Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion will return to begin your biggest year for income growth and expansion in over a decade.

From this point, your income sector won't be empty again until June 2025. Meanwhile, the Moon will not only return to your financial sector from 23rd May to 26th May, but two days after the Sun's return to your income sector they will clash to create a Full Moon that can energise both sides of the financial fence. This will also give money matters a voice before all the focus shifts onto the income side of the financial fence.

Gemini

While the dwarf planet Ceres is not a major player and her influence on money matters is less on the money itself and more on understanding your financial needs and priorities, she has the kind of support that should make this a good month financially. As you move into the new month the Moon is just leaving your financial sector and having spent the final days of April here, this allows you to move into the new month with your financial instincts and imagination fuelled while feeling emotionally and intuitively engaged from the start. It was while the Moon was here that Venus, the planet of money not only returned to an intuitive and imaginative part of your chart but formed a friendly aspect to the Sun, Uranus and Jupiter there.

This helped to fuel your financial confidence and imagination while giving you a read on a drop in urgency that is developing. After returning in February for what is normally a three month deep dive into your financial needs and priorities, Ceres should be getting ready to leave but instead, she is slowing down ahead of a retrograde turn on 15th May that will keep her here until December. Rather than rush to define your financial needs and priorities for the coming year, this is something that can evolve over time, making this visit different from those that the dwarf planet makes every four years.

By the time the Moon comes full circle from 26th May to 28th May, Ceres will have been in retrograde motion for nearly two weeks, giving you a better read on the rear view mirror that she is giving you better access to. Meanwhile, in between these two visits to your financial sector, the Moon will move through your income sector from 11th May to 13th May. With no planetary activity on the income side of the financial fence, the Moon returns with a chance to sharpen your nose for money and act as a trigger.

This will be the Moon's first visit since Mars left your career sector, with a friendly aspect to Saturn and Neptune there as it passes through a chance to link its sense of where the money is with the shifting dynamics of this professional year.

Cancer

Having the Moon in your financial sector from 1st May to 3rd May is more than just a chance to begin the new month with your financial instincts and imagination fuelled while feeling emotionally and intuitively engaged from the start. While this is an ordinary monthly visit, with the Moon returning every four weeks with a chance to check in, it is the timing that makes this a lot more significant. With Pluto turning retrograde on 3rd May, this will be a chance to get the most out of the planet of change and transformation's final days in direct motion until later in the year.

Pluto might have come to a standstill, but he still looking to the future. It is just over an hour before the Moon is due to leave that Pluto will turn retrograde, ensuring you are plugged in and aware as the tide turns and the focus shifts to the rear view mirror. This will also anchor Pluto into position, making him a stationary target when the Sun returns to an intuitive and imaginative part of your chart on 21st May, Venus on 24th May and Jupiter on 26th May.

As well as bringing the planets of money and luck together here for the first time in over a decade, as they return, they will one by one form a friendly aspect to Pluto, firing up your financial confidence and imagination just as he is calling for change as you look to the past for inspiration. Having moved through your financial sector in the early days of the month, this will give the Moon time to come full circle for a second visit from 28th May to 30th May. By then Pluto will have been in retrograde motion for nearly four weeks while a friendly aspect to the Sun, Venus and Jupiter as it moves through will once again fuel your financial confidence and imagination.

Meanwhile, with no planetary activity in your income sector, the Moon's return to your income sector from 13th May to 16th May can sharpen your nose for money and act as a trigger, making these the most potentially lucrative days of the month. With Mars in your career sector all month, this will be a chance to exploit any income potential this is creating.

Leo

As you move into the new month Mars is just leaving your financial sector and while he won't make a physical imprint on the month, his influence will not only be felt throughout the month but for the coming year and beyond. Mars only returns every other year, but when he does, he will spend six weeks firing up your financial passions and fighting spirit while giving you the drive and confidence to take your financial power back. Mars was the last of a parade of faster planets that have moved through over recent months, starting with Mercury's return in February with the smart head for money needed to get your head in the game and to think on your feet.

Since then the Sun and Venus, the planet of money have moved through, with Mars the last planet to interact with Saturn and Neptune and to have an influence on the course that the rest of this financial year will take. However, unlike the Sun, Venus and Mercury who all met up with Saturn and Neptune here last year and will do the same next year, for Mars this was both a first and a last. This was Mars' first encounter with Saturn here in three decades and while Neptune, who has been here since 2012 and won't leave until 2026, is his last with the planet of dreams here in our lifetime.

Saturn and Neptune will continue to work as a team, giving you the resolve to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes in order to turn financial dreams into reality. However, having spent his final days aligned with Neptune, this was a chance to fire up those dreams and leave you with something that you can continue to fight for. The Moon's return to your financial sector from 3rd May to 5th May will be a chance to check in just 48 hours after Mars leaves.

The Moon will return for another chance to check in on 30th May. Meanwhile, in her first full month in direct motion in your income sector the asteroid Juno, the queen of commitment is giving you a new sense of resolve and confidence as things come together professionally. The Moon's visit to your income sector from 16th May to 18th May will give you a chance to check in with that while making these some of the most potentially lucrative days of the month.

Virgo

As you move into the new month it has been less than 48 hours since Venus, the planet of money and just 11 days since the Sun left your financial sector, bringing you to a point where things should be dialling back. Instead, it is just as you are moving into the new month that Mars, the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos will return for his first visit in two years. As well as returning in time to capitalise on the momentum already gained and with a chance to start turning the financial desires and expectations Venus left you with into reality, Mars returns with a chance to fire up your financial passions and fighting spirit.

Mercury, who returned in March for what is normally a 14 to 15 day chance to use his smart head for money in order to get your head in the game and to think on your feet should be long gone, but a retrograde phase has not only kept him here, but he won't leave until 16th May. This will keep Mercury here during the early weeks of Mars' six week visit and of his quest to help you take your financial power back. You will get an early read on this when the Moon moves through your financial sector from 5th May to 7th May.

Coming full circle from last month's Full Moon, as well as a chance to fuel your financial instincts and imagination and to ensure you are emotionally and intuitively engaged, this is a chance to get a feel for Mars' influence. Meanwhile, the income side of the financial fence is gearing up for a boost, less because of anything happening in your income sector and more because of what is happening professionally. This will also make the Moon's monthly visit to your income sector from 18th May to 21st May timely.

This is something that every four weeks can sharpen your nose for money and act as a trigger and while a clash with Mars might create some financial tension, it won't take much to turn this into motivation on both sides of the financial fence. Especially as this will ensure your nose for money is sharp when the Sun returns to your career sector on 21st May, Venus on 24th May and Jupiter on 26th May.

Libra

Because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of May in your financial sector, the solar spotlight is always on your financial situation and money matters at this time of the year. However, this is an overlapping of the ordinary and the extraordinary, for as you move into the new month Jupiter is in the final weeks of a 12 month visit and of his 12 month quest for financial growth and expansion. With the Sun here until 21st May and Venus, who returned in the closing days of April here until 24th May but Jupiter not leaving until 26th May, the last thing that they will do before leaving is align.

It has been over a decade since the planets of money and luck have been in your financial sector in 12 years and while the most auspicious days of any year will be when these two benefics align, this year it will be happening in your financial sector and just as they are both about to leave. With the Sun also aligning with Jupiter before leaving on 21st May, this will already have put the solar spotlight on all the possibilities and potential that Jupiter is creating. However, Jupiter's departure on 26th May will be far from the end of the story, both in terms of how things will continue to play out financially or the growth and potential yet to be exploited.

Mercury, who will return on 16th May with the smart head for money needed to get your head in the game and to think on your feet will not only stay on, but with Mars returning next month the best is still to come. However, this puts a lot more importance on the Moon's monthly visit to your financial sector and the last before the Sun, Venus and Jupiter leave. The Moon will move through from 7th May to 9th May, but as well as a chance to ensure your financial instincts are sharp and you are emotionally and intuitively engaged, a New Moon on 8th May will create the potential for new beginnings and opportunities.

Meanwhile, while there is no planetary activity on the income side of the financial fence when the Moon comes full circle from last month's Full Moon in your income sector from 21st May to 23rd May, there could be some surprise developments.

Scorpio

With no planetary activity in either of your two money houses since the last of the planets returning to your income sector in 2023 finally left in February, it is the Moon's monthly visits that have been key to keeping you plugged in and both income and money matters on track. While that will still be the case when the Moon moves through your financial sector from 9th May to 11th April, by the time it leaves there will be a strong sense of change in the air. Partly because by the time the Moon leaves that change is just 10 days away and partly because it moves through, this will fuel your financial instincts and imagination while ensuring you are emotionally and intuitively engaged.

By then you will be both closer to and your sixth sense will be more alert to the changes ahead. This is something that will happen in steps over the course of just five days, starting with the Sun's return to your financial sector on 21st May. This is the point in each year when the solar spotlight will always shift onto your financial situation and money matters, kicking off what will always be the most active months of the year on this side of the financial fence, the side where it is more about what you do with and how you manage the money you have.

It is three days later that Venus, the planet of money will return on 24th May, with a chance to fuel your financial confidence, update your financial desires and expectations and work to turn those desires into reality. However, the real game changer will come when two days later Jupiter returns on 26th May to begin your biggest year for financial growth and expansion in over a decade. With Venus here when Jupiter returns and the planets of money and luck together for the first time here in 12 years, this will get things off to a positive and empowered start.

While this is happening on the other side of the financial fence, this will also have an impact on the income side, turning the Moon's return to your income sector from 23rd May to 25th May into a Full Moon. Had this happened just a few days earlier this would be just an ordinary monthly visit and while still able to sharpen your nose for money and act as a trigger, with a lot more potency.

Sagittarius

When Pluto left your income sector in January and once the last of the faster planets moved through, this should have ended all planetary activity on the income side of the financial fence until later in the year. Instead, in February the dwarf planet Ceres returned for what should have been a three month visit, but instead she is not only still here but a retrograde turn on 15th May will keep her here until December. Ceres will still be here when Pluto dips back in for 11 weeks later in the year and when the faster planets come full circle for their annual visits.

As well as continuing to her deep dive into your income needs and priorities, this will keep the income side of the financial fence active all year. That is especially significant this month, for with the Sun in your work sector until 21st May, Venus here until 24th May and Jupiter until 26th May, they will all form a friendly aspect as they move through. As the planet of money, Venus will be especially keen to connect with Ceres and especially as once in retrograde motion she will open the doors to the past, second chances and untapped income potential.

While Ceres is not a major player, it is the company that she is keeping this month that brings her into a tight group of planets that have come together to support the Sun, Venus and Jupiter in their final weeks in your work sector and of a 12 month quest for job growth and expansion. As you move into the new month the Moon has just left your income sector, but having spent the final two days of April here and as it was here, ensuring your nose for money was sharp when Venus, the planet of money returned to your work sector this helps to get the month off to a positive start. The Moon will come full circle from 26th May to 28th May and in time to ensure your nose for money is sharp and to act as a trigger during Jupiter's final hours in your work sector.

Meanwhile, with no planetary activity on the other side of the sky in your financial sector, the Moon's return from 11th May to 13th May will be a valuable chance to check in on money matters.

Capricorn

As you move into the new month the Moon has just returned to your income sector and until leaving on 3rd May will ensure that you begin the month with a sharp nose for money while feeling emotionally and intuitively engaged from the start. What makes the timing significant is not just that this will get the month off to a good start, but this will put the Moon here during Pluto's final days in direct motion. The Moon will leave just over an hour after the planet of change and transformation's retrograde turn on 3rd May, giving you a better sense that the tide is turning.

Pluto has already come to a standstill by the time you move into the new month and whether in direct motion and looking to the future or turning back and looking back through the rear view mirror, he will remain at nearly the same position all month. This will have positive implications later in the month for as first the Sun returns to your work sector on 21st May, Venus on 24th May and Jupiter on 26th May, they will one by one move into a friendly aspect to Pluto. At the same time, this will bring the planets of money and luck together in your work sector for the first time in 12 years and just as you are moving into your biggest year for job growth and expansion in over a decade, but never before with Pluto in your income sector.

Apart from retrograding back out for 11 weeks later in the year, Pluto will remain in your income sector for the next 20 years and with Jupiter in your work sector until June 2025, the planets of luck and change will work closely together, bringing you to the start of the most exciting period in your lifetime on the income and job fronts. By the time the Moon returns to your income sector from 28th May to the 30th May the Sun, Venus and Jupiter will be in your work sector, giving you an early read on this. Meanwhile, with no planetary activity on the other side of the financial fence in your financial sector, the Moon's return from 13th May to 16th May will be a valuable chance to check in on money matters.

Aquarius

As you move into the new month Mars, the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos is just leaving your income sector. While Mars won't stick around to have any direct impact on the month itself, he has done enough to not only influence the coming month but the rest of this financial year. This was Mars' first visit to your income sector in two years and as the last of the faster moving planets, he was the last to make contact with Saturn and Neptune, the planets that are here now until early 2026.

However, as Mars didn't visit your income sector in 2023, he wasn't here when Saturn returned and while the Sun, Venus and Mercury will all return in 2025, he won't return for another two years, after Saturn and Neptune have both left. This made this Mars' first encounter with Saturn in your income sector in three decades and the last with Neptune here in our lifetime. Having spent his final days aligned with Mars and having aligned with Saturn earlier, Mars' drive to fight for what you deserve has helped to fuel your long term dreams and aspirations, leaving you with something that you can continue to fight for.

With Mars gone so too is the urgency and with Saturn and Neptune staying on with the resolve to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes, it becomes more about the journey but thanks to Mars, motivated and with a renewed sense of what's possible. The Moon's return to your income sector from 3rd May to 5th May will bring a valuable chance to check in and get a sense of the shift this has created. However, this could also act as a trigger for any untapped income potential Mars has left in his wake.

That will also be the case when the Moon comes full circle on 30th May. Meanwhile, on the other side of the sky the asteroid Juno, the queen of commitment is back in direct motion. This is giving you a chance to look to the future with confidence and thanks to a partnership with Venus, the planet of money, especially when it comes to financial matters on the home front.

The Moon's return to your financial sector from 16th May to 18th May will give you a better read on money matters.

Pisces

As you move into the new month it has been less than 48 hours since Venus, the planet of money left your income sector and just 11 days since the Sun left, taking the solar spotlight off your income situation, matters and options. While Mercury is still here, still in his early days back in direct motion and not leaving until 16th May, this has given you a chance to pause as you adjust to his shift in focus. After three weeks in retrograde motion, Mercury's smart head for money now comes with 20/20 hindsight and still barely moving after Venus left, this bought you some thinking time before the next phase began.

That next phase is already underway, for as you move into the new month Mars, the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos is just returning for his first visit to your income sector in two years. Mars will pick up from where Venus left off while benefiting from the lucrative sense of direction she has left you with. Where Venus has worked to make her short 24 day visit as lucrative as possible, Mars doesn't wait for opportunities to find you.

Mars' return signals that it is time to take the gloves off and to fight for what you deserve. You will get an early read on Mars' influence when the Moon moves through from 5th May to 7th May. This is something that every four weeks can sharpen your nose for money and act as a trigger and especially for any untapped income potential from Venus' time here.

This will also give you a better sense of where to channel Mars' warrior and competitive spirit while until leaving on 16th May you have Mercury's smart head for money to draw on. While there is no planetary activity in either of your two professional houses to support Mars' quest for an income breakthrough, a Full Moon will fire things up professionally from 23rd May to 25th May. Meanwhile, the Moon's return to your financial sector from 18th May to 21st May will be a chance to check in on money matters.
