The May horoscope focuses on the full moon in Scorpio on Saturday, May 18th. Just when you thought nothing would ever change, get ready! Venus enters Taurus on Wednesday the 15th, and then conjuncts the planet of surprises, Uranus, on the same day as the full moon! Just when you thought there was no more love, no more money, no more soulful connections…your fate turns a new corner.Here’s how the energy may manifest for you:
Aries – full moon in 8th house, Venus conjunct Uranus in 2nd house
Money could manifest from an unexpected source and just in the nick of time. You could be sealing a deal and having the money to do so. This money could be for work done at home/new residence/moving. There may be surprising developments when someone shows you how much they value what you bring to the table. You are feeling empowered and alive! Reversal of Fortune: from lacking faith in the Universe to realizing abundance is all around you.
Taurus – full moon in 7th house, Venus conjunct Uranus in 1st house
This is how it feels to be in love, with self, with the world, with the sheer surprising serendipity when you take a chance on believing again. Some may be ending a relationship that no longer reflects the new person you are becoming…and some may be meeting an interesting new person whose energy more vibrantly aligns with your own. In any case, you will be re-evaluating your relationships and how they do or do not light you up. The ones that don’t pass inspection under the Scorpio full moon will be plain as day. Reversal of Fortune: from coasting along to taking charge
Gemini – full moon in 6th house, Venus conjunct Uranus in 12th house
Is the work soul-aligned? Is your health in need of a time out, a detox, a cleanse? Daily routines that support both body and soul need to be addressed. Take care of yourself and meditate on what really matters as you head into your birthday month. Tired of the insanity of a particular situation/relationship, some of you may bust a move and fly the coop. Surprising intuitive information may come in the dream state. An angel’s on your shoulder, guiding you to the choice that makes the most sense for your overall well-being. Reversal of Fortune: from taking your body for granted to honoring the body, mind, spirit connection.
Cancer – full moon in 5th house, Venus conjunct Uranus in 11th house
A turning point in a creative or personal project is reached. Someone wants to help you achieve your goals and you may meet them as soon as you wish for their presence in your life—manifestation can happen that quickly this week. Their advice may be offbeat, but could be just the thing you need to achieve the success you want. For some, that person is a new romantic potential. Guard against any aggressive, demanding tendencies as Mars moves through your 1st house of the self. Reversal of Fortune: from lacking faith that you can achieve it, to now finally believing you can.
Leo – full moon in 4th house, Venus conjunct Uranus in 10th house
A surprising career development (more money, a promotion, or a “pink slip”) may have you contemplating if it’s time to sell up and move on—either out of necessity to find another job in another town, or out of leveling up into a new lifestyle as your career finally gets the boost in real tangible terms: money, kudos, etc. For some, a family dynamic that has needed to shift for a while finally does. Someone may be moving out of the house or returning after a long absence. Emotions could be running high on the home front as some crucial decisions need to be made. Reversal of Fortune: from hiding your head in the sand to acknowledging that an important change must be made in where you live and how you earn your money.
Virgo – full moon in 3rd house, Venus conjunct Uranus in 9th house
How are you coming across, Virgo? Communication is center stage as a negotiation reaches climax at the full moon. A new media contact, an interview, request for information, etc. may come out of the blue. There could be a unique opportunity to promote yourself via publishing, networking, social media. A sudden travel opportunity could also arise (probably somewhere lush and green. Costa Rica?) In your day to day routines you could receive a surprising sign or omen that provides insight on a spiritual matter you have been wrestling with. Reversal of fortune: from lacking clarity to increasing focus and aligning with life purpose.
Libra – full moon in 2nd house, Venus conjunct Uranus in 8th house
Where’s the money going, Libra? It’s time to settle your accounts or someone needs to settle them with you. You could receive money unexpectedly from someone who owes you money, perhaps money you long ago kissed goodbye, never thinking you’d see it again. Alternatively, money could come in through a tax refund or “inheritance.” That “inheritance” could be a new job, a small windfall, a little gift you’ve long wanted—but you’re not expecting it. Your good karma is being paid back ten times over. (Let’s hope there’s not a nasty surprise that you owe more on your taxes than you thought!). Reversal of Fortune: from from lacking faith in the Universe to realizing abundance is all around you.
Scorpio – full moon in the 1st house, Venus conjunct Uranus in the 7th house
The spotlight is on you, darling, and your future’s so bright you have to wear shades. But instead of hiding behind some dark sunglasses or in your Scorpio cave, you’ve got to come out into the sunshine, Scorpio, because a surprising development awaits in the relationship department. Some of you could be getting engaged, out of the blue, when you least expect it. Others of you could meet the love of your life in the supermarket as you both reach for the same bunch of asparagus. Love at first touch, my darlings, just the way you like it. For those happily coupled, your partner could suggest spending money on a trip that requires a long flight…a second honeymoon in a faraway land…where you two will reconnect in the most surprising of ways.
Sagittarius – full moon in 12th house, Venus conjunct Uranus in 6th house
It’s all coming out of the woodwork at this full moon—all the scary uglies that keep you awake at night: fears about your survival being paramount on your mind: money, health, basic life stuff. What you focus on expands. Direct your energy toward what you want. The surprise in the mix could be a new job, a new healing treatment, a new way of looking at your problems so that you can address them. The body/mind connection is so strong—and you will see evidence of that at this time. It is important to spend time in quiet contemplation now, and discovering what ways you can raise your vibration from fear to flow. Reversal of Fortune: from giving into fear and letting it dictate your actions to consciously taking charge of your life and your healing.
Capricorn – full moon in 11th house, Venus conjunct Uranus in 5th house
If you’ve been wishing for a fresh start in love, creativity, risk-taking, then a surprising development could be on its way in these areas. Someone could reveal to you how they’ve had a crush on you for a while. For some Capricorns, the surprise could be a pregnancy (if you’ve been wishing for a baby). Taurus is a very fertile sign, so if you don’t want to tap into this energy, take precautions. In some sense, you’ve been living in limbo, but that’s all about to change as the energy freshens the landscape with a possible new paramour or creative project. Dare to own your desire; write it down and make it happen! Reversal of fortune: from being unclear on what you want to manifest to taking a risk and going on faith that the Universe’s got your back on this one.
Aquarius – full moon in 10th house, Venus conjunct Uranus in 4th house
The higher ups are watching, Aquarius, and they are liking what they see. You could be on the receiving end of a career offer that might involve a surprise relocation. A surprise on the home front — plumbing or electric issue? — might need to be fixed. You could also be on the lookout for some awesome new decor for your home, and find just the right thing at a bargain price. You might also be re-evaluating if your career could benefit from a relocation—that somewhere else may be more conducive for your career ambitions. A sudden idea of where to relocate may come to you—and you may be very surprised where you end up in six months’ time. You could also start an online, home-based business. Reversal of Fortune: from feeling like just another cog in the wheel of commerce to becoming an overnight success.
Pisces – full moon in 9th house, Venus conjunct Uranus in 3rd house
You’re on your way at this full moon, Pisces, possibly literally and possibly figuratively. Travel, movement, expansion of mind, body, spirit are in focus now. You want to open up your world to interesting experiences, travel, spiritual pursuits, writing, creative projects, maybe even more education/training. Commit to one of these areas and watch the Universe deliver you an exciting surprise in the form of new contacts, short trips, and new ideas for communication projects. You may be starting that book you’ve always wanted to write, as an inspired new idea comes to you. Reversal of Fortune: from feeling a disconnect with the Universe to recommitting to your spiritual work/path.
