Energetically, May is a continuation of the energy shifts we experienced last month.
We are given the opportunity to do some spring cleaning, or, instead, the Universe will do it for us.
Four planets will be changing signs, three of which will be in their home signs; we've got our favorite, Mercury retrograde, plus a powerful Full Moon lunar eclipse in Scorpio.
Let's take a deep dive into May's astrology.
- Venus moves into Aries - May 2nd
- Mercury goes retrograde in Gemini - May 10th

The month begins with Venus, the planet of money and love, moving into fiery Aries on May 2nd. This transit lends itself to being bold, impatient, and impulsive in love matters. It's the perfect transit to meet new people and develop new relationships.
On May 10th, Mercury will go retrograde in its home sign of Gemini. For the next few weeks, we'll have the opportunity to revisit, remember, reassess, and revamp our past ideas, communications, plans, and paperwork. With Mercury in its home sign, electronic malfunctions, transportation delays, miscommunications, and misunderstandings will be high.
That same day, Jupiter will also enter fiery Aries to join Venus. This transit is excellent for creating our own opportunities, stepping out on faith, taking calculated risks, and displaying confidence. It's important to remember that our abundance lies in taking the lead, being enterprising, inspiring others, and demonstrating courage.
On May 16th, we'll have our second eclipse of the year, a powerful Full Moon lunar eclipse in Scorpio. Lunar eclipses not only highlight any imbalances in our lives, but they eclipse things out to make room for something better. It's the Universe's way of doing spring cleaning. We'll be tasked with tackling deep emotions and getting our resources balanced out for this particular eclipse.
On May 20th, Gemini season officially begins when the Sun moves into this curious and communicative sign. Our mental activities, social skills, and curiosity will take center stage for the next month.
Mercury retrogrades back into Taurus on May 22nd. Resources and tangible things from the past may reappear. Additionally, we'll have the opportunity to revisit, remember, and reassess what's most important to us.
On May 24th, Mars transits into its home sign of Aries. If you've been meaning to start something new and exciting, this transit will put a battery in your back. Joining up with Venus and Jupiter, Mars will allow us to be bold, dynamic, and a bit self-centered.
Venus will move into her home sign of Taurus on May 28th, where she will feel comfortable and luxurious. With this transit, we can all tap into the energy of beauty, be creative, and focus on building valuable relationships.
Finally, we close out the month with a New Moon in the sign of Gemini on May 30th. New Moons are all about new beginnings, so we will go into June with the ability to form new ideas, communicate with new people, and learn new skills that can benefit us in the future.
