Last month may have been a roller coaster ride thanks to the effects of two game-changing eclipses. Luckily, this month we get the chance to catch our breath and let the dust settle a bit. February opens with love planet Venus entering grounded and practical Capricorn on February 3rd, bringing the focus to commitment, dedication, and integrity when it comes to relationships and financial matters.

Since Capricorn is an earth sign, Venus in Capricorn will also be pushing us to establish a healthier relationship with ourselves, especially when it comes to our physical well-being. With active Mars entering sensual and equally grounded Taurus on February 14th, followed by the Full Moon in health-conscious Virgo on the 19th, the emphasis on our physical health will be hard to ignore.

As a rule, eclipses can be rough on the body by ramping up stress levels. The earthy energy coming our way can help us get the care and calming energy that we need.

Meanwhile, the New Moon in Aquarius on February 4th, coupled with the start of Pisces season on February 18th, encourages us to make smarter and more fulfilling choices when it comes to our connections to others, while looking to ways that we can help make the world better for others too–specifically those who may be vulnerable or marginalized. Having communicative Mercury entering soulful Pisces on February 10th means that we’ll be looking to have more meaningful conversations and connections as well.

Between the New Moon in Aquarius, Venus in Capricorn, and planets in Pisces, we’re reminded that healthy, supportive, and emotionally uplifting relationships can also be the anchor that we need right now.

Here's What's In Store For May - May 2017 Monthly Horoscopes!

You should be feeling back on track this month as Mercury begins moving forward again in Aries, your zone of confidence and self-image, on May 3. With charming Venus (now in Aries) also back in this zone, you should have a better sense of what you want and where you want to go moving forward. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself wanting a makeover too as you’ll be wanting a new look that matches your new outlook on life. Meanwhile, hosting Venus and Mercury in your sign means that you have the power of persuasion now, especially with Mars in talkative Gemini camped out in your zone of communication. With the help of this cosmic combination, it won’t be hard to win friends, influence others, talk yourself into an opportunity, or attract love. If you have something you want to promote, launch, publish, screen, or build an audience for – May is your month to do it, especially as the Sun enters Gemini on the 20th, followed by a New Moon in Gemini on the 25th. Writing, media, networking, and gathering new experiences will be your source of strength and good energy.

Before Gemini season arrives though, there’s some unfinished business for you to handle first thanks to the Full Moon in Scorpio (May 10) landing in your zone of finances, intimacy, and rebirth. Under this full moon, you may be pushed to put the kibosh on an intimate relationship that’s become more controlling or manipulative than supportive and nurturing. Meanwhile when it comes to your finances, you could be making a big step towards your financial security like purchasing life insurance or your own house. Either way, look to this full moon to help you find the courage to grow up in some way. The theme of money and the things you value will continue as Mercury enters Taurus, your zone of income and possessions on May 16. With Mercury here, it’s time to go over your financials and pay closer attention to the money going in and out of your bank account, as well as your perceptions around scarcity and abundance. It’s time to see the glass as half full instead of the other way around.

As your birthday season continues, you can consider this month to be a re-set of sorts, especially when it comes to your relationships, money, and the things you value. With Mercury moving forward again in Aries (your zone of rest, healing, and retreat) by May 3, you should be able to find the courage to let something you’ve been fearing go. With Mercury in one of the most sensitive zones of your chart, your intuition is spot now on, you just have to make sure you allow yourself to get quiet enough to hear it, especially with Venus in Aries calling you towards better self-care. Having Mercury in fearless Aries though, is like having that little voice in your head that tells you that you can do anything. It’s time to trust that voice, as it really means trusting yourself – especially as multiple planets begin lining up in Gemini, your zone of self-worth, income, and possessions. Mars in Gemini already kicked off the party last month, pushing you to be more demanding about getting the things that you’ve been working so hard for, while making sure others respect those demands.

And speaking of others, on May 10 a Full Moon in Scorpio lands in your zone of relationships, which may push you to end a bad relationship or force you to see someone close to you as they really are. If there’s been a drought in your love life, this full moon could also bring an end to that as well. By the 16th, when Mercury enters Taurus, your zone of self-confidence and self-image, your words will carry special power, so make sure you’re using them to speak what you want into existence. Be mindful of how you use phrases like “I can’t”, “I won’t”, “I don’t have”, “I am”, etc. On another note, you can use Mercury to meet and connect with others in a way that could lead to an opportunity or two. Prepare to sing your own praises. By the 20th, when the Sun enters Gemini, the spotlight turns back to your money and self-worth. It’s time to put yourself in spaces, working or not, that make you feel valued and productive. No more holding onto people or things out of fear. On the 25th, look to the New Moon in Gemini to help you with manifesting a new source of income.

 

Happy Birthday, Gemini! With a brand new year ahead of you and nearly half the cosmos behind you this month, you may feel like you can’t be stopped. This feeling is a good thing, Gemini as it may have felt like you’ve been swimming in molasses lately. Though the slow progress helped you to figure out where your energy is best spent. With Mercury moving forward again in Aries (your zone of friendship and future goals) on May 3, you succeed by paying closer attention to the company you keep both on and offline. With Venus back in Aries and in this area of your chart as well, there may have been some changes in your circle of friends, but you should be clearer on what friendship means to you. Simply put: if the people you know aren’t adding value to your life in some way, then what are they doing? With aggressive Mars currently in Gemini, your zone of confidence and self-image, you should be feeling assured and energized in a way that you haven’t felt for some time. You should also be feeling less tolerant of other people’s nonsense, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself quicker to set boundaries with others.

On the 10th, a Full Moon in Scorpio illuminates your zone of health, routine, and work. Under the influence of this full moon your personal boundaries continue to be an opportunity for growth for you as you may decide to call it quits on a job within a toxic or abusive work environment. Another way this full moon may show up for you is by pushing you to detox your body or break a bad habit. When Mercury enters Taurus on the 16th, it’s time for a mental sabbatical of sorts as your creativity and intuition only shine through when you give yourself enough quiet and solitude. As such, stay off the social media for a little while. Consider this time a chance to clear things off your plate before your birthday rolls in as when the Sun arrives in Gemini on the 20th, joining Mars, it’s full steam ahead. With the Sun and Mars on your team, May is your month to make major progress and take chances on things that you may have been afraid to do in the past. Look to the New Moon in Gemini on the 25th, to turn over a new leaf when it comes to your style and approach.

 

It’s time to move past your fears this month, especially when it comes to your creativity and your career aspirations. With Mercury moving forward again (May 3) in Aries, your zone of success, career, and fame; you should be receiving some clarity on the steps that you want to take to get ahead which may mean a career switch or change. With Venus back in Aries and in this same zone, your focus is making sure that whatever you choose to do, it allows you a sense of fulfillment and creative freedom alongside making money. Is it possible to do what you love and live on it too? The universe seems to think so. It’s time you got your head in that same space. With passionate Mars currently in Gemini and in your zone of rest, retreat, and dreams; you may be feeling both divinely inspired and wildly afraid to leave your current situation behind. Though this is the perfect time to strategize behind the scenes and engage activities that help you reduce anxiety and overcome fear. Therapy or working with a reputable spiritual healer could help.

On the 10th, the Full Moon in Scorpio lights up your zone of creativity, adventure, and romance. As Scorpio is a sign that pushes us to recognize our personal power, this full moon may push you to stop doubting yourself or playing yourself small. Whether it comes to love or something you love doing, it’s all about putting yourself in spaces and living experiences that allow you to be your authentic self without reserve. On the 16th, when Mercury enters Taurus, your zone of friendship and future goals, it’s time to take your hopes and wishes seriously by taking tangible steps to make them come true. Part of this work will involve connecting and conversing with others that you can collaborate with in a professional capacity or those that can at the very least point you in the right direction when it comes to opportunity. Since social media is associated with this area, make sure to use it as your digital resume. A personal website could even help. On the 20th, the Sun enters Gemini, followed by a New Moon in Gemini on the 25th. Giving yourself space to dream, heal, and create will be the best gift you can give yourself. Take care of you.

 

New experiences, places, and faces are the theme for you this month as curious Mercury moves forward again in Aries (May 3), your zone of travel, opportunity, and education. During Mercury retrograde, your job was to reconnect with your sense of adventure and enterprising spirit. This month, it’s all about taking those ideas and inspiration that Mercury retrograde stirred up and using them to expand your horizons. Publishing, media, travel, teaching, or learning are all areas that may present opportunities that can help to catapult you forward. With lovely Venus back in Aries as well; money, love, and your overall fulfillment will be found by taking a few creative risks – so don’t second guess yourself. With go-getter Mars in Gemini, your zone of friendship and future goals, the push to pursue your ideas while building the network of people around you will be felt even stronger. With Mars here, you’ll find that you have less tolerance for the naysayers in your life. This is a good thing as you don’t need anyone projecting their fears onto you.

Now that Mercury is going forward the pace will pick up significantly, but your mission will be making sure that you’re using your time and energy as effectively as possible, while engaging activities that boost your health.

With Mars hanging out in chatty Gemini; your zone of romance, creativity, and adventure – a love connection could also be in your future. Either way, with your creative energy riding high, your goal this month is to get out and mix, mingle, and flirt as much as you can. This is not the month for playing it safe, but for indulging in the people, places, and things that light you up!

Speaking of being lit, the Full Moon in Scorpio illuminating your zone of career and achievement on May 10 may help you to put yourself and your reputation on everyone’s radar. If you’ve been busy putting in that work, you could be rewarded with a distinguished award or position. If you’ve been getting the itch to leave where you currently are, this moon could also have you making an abrupt exit. Either way, it’s time to step up and be the leader you were born to be.

Your finances are on your mind for a good chunk of this month as Mercury begins moving forward again in Aries (your zone of income, self-worth, and possessions) on May 3. During the retrograde you were asked to reassess how you earned and handled your cash. If you’ve been feeling undervalued or underpaid at your current job, Mercury will help you in shifting your perspective around money. As such, you may decide to leave where you are for something better or raise your fees to better accommodate your needs and reflect your value. Now that Venus is also in Aries, she will be working alongside Mercury to help you with attracting and manifesting the things that you desire. First things first though, you have to believe that you deserve such things before you go about getting them. Mars is currently in Gemini, your zone of home and family, helping you to re-center yourself and find your inner strength.

On the 10th, the Full Moon in Scorpio lands in your zone of travel, adventure, and education.

On the 20th, the Sun enters Gemini, followed by the New Moon in Gemini on the 25th. Work with the energy of Gemini season to help you decompress, re-group, connect with family, and find new tools to deal with old feelings. A move or relocation could be in the near future.

Aries: The key themes for you this month are focus and intention as March opens with Venus retrograde (March 4th) in your zone of self-image and confidence. As Venus is the planet in charge of self-worth, relationships, and finances, your homework will involve reassessing your connection to each. Have you let money (how much you have or don’t have) define you? Are you putting your best foot forward when it comes to getting the things you want? In terms of your look and personal style, what can you do for yourself so that you not only look better but feel better too? These are just a few of the questions that will come up for answers now. On March 9th, when Mars (your patron saint) enters Taurus (your zone of income and values), your lessons in self-esteem continue as you’re encouraged to go after money-making opportunities that not only offer you financial freedom but pay you what you’re worth. At this time you may decide to go after a pay raise, a new client pool, or a new job. One thing to note – with aggressive Mars in your money zone, you’ll have watch out for sudden expenses.

On the 31st, when Mercury enters Taurus, it’s time to pay better attention to how you earn, spend, and save your money.

Taurus: This month it’s all about finding your way back to what makes you feel alive and reconnecting to  your own unique style. Though in order to do this, you first need to get clear about what moves you in the first place. Expect this to be your focus during much of the month as your ruling planet Venus goes retrograde (March 4th) in Aries, your zone of rest, retreat, and dreams. With Venus retrograde here, you’ll have to draw inward and tap into the more soulful part of you in order to figure out what really speaks to your spirit. If there was a mantra for Venus in Aries, it should be – only do it if your heart is 100% in it. If not, leave it alone. This should become your motto by the time go-getter Mars enters Taurus (your zone of confidence and self-image) on March 9th. Having Mars on your team not only helps to turn up your swag one hundred thousand trillion, but it can also give you the eye of the tiger when it comes to getting things done. If there’s anything that you’ve been afraid to go after, look to Mars to help you take a balls to the wall approach.

On the 12th, the Full Moon in Virgo lights up your zone of creativity, love, and adventure. With the help of this moon, you could have a light-bulb moment when it comes to a creative project, or receive clarity on how to improve your love life.

With Mercury joining Venus retrograde, your focus turns back to your interior self. Use this time to work behind the scenes while engaging a therapeutic practice to help you unload all the stuff on your mind. When the Sun moves into Aries on the 20th, your source of warmth and well-being will be found in the company of one -- and that one is you. Don’t look to keeping too many dates with others as this is your time to chill and focus solely on yourself. When the New Moon in Aries arrives on March 27th, consider it a good time to turn over a new leaf when it comes to your self-care. Trying a new form of therapy or healing could help you make a breakthrough. On the 31st, life begins to pick up significantly when Mercury enters Taurus, your zone of self-image and confidence. Get ready to wow the crowd.

Gemini: Your friendships and associations are up for review as the month opens with Venus in Aries retrograde in your zone of allies, beginning on March 4th. With the planet of love and relationships spinning backwards in this area of your chart, it’s time to take stock of your relationships and whether they’re as balanced as they should be. At this time, you could have a falling out with a friend that could lead you to draw closer or kiss each other goodbye. The side this coin falls on depends on whether this person still adds value to your life. The same goes for any groups, organizations, or associations that you belong to. Do you still fit in? On the 9th, aggressive Mars enters Taurus, your zone of rest, healing, and retreat. With Mars in one of the most private parts of your chart, it’s time to channel your angry feelings into a creative or therapeutic outlet as holding on to those feelings or attempting to ignore them will only hurt you more than it will help. On the plus side, having Mars here is helpful for getting stuff done on your own and working behind the scenes. Keep your head down and stay focused.

On the 12th, the Full Moon in Virgo lights up your zone of home and family. This moon could highlight where you may need to improve a relationship with a parent or release something from the past. If having healthy boundaries between you and a family member have been an issue, the Full Moon could help you to fix the issue. You could also decide to move or fix up your living space to boost your sense of well-being. On the 13th, Mercury (your patron saint) moves into feisty Aries, joining Venus retrograde. Having Mercury here could help to repair and renew old friendships while introducing you to a whole host of new people. If you’ve been thinking of hosting a fundraiser or crowdfunding campaign, Mercury can help you bring attention to a good cause if you plan well. When the Sun enters Aries on March 20th, your source of warmth, creativity, and confidence will come by way of surrounding yourself with those that rally you and by paying extra special attention to your hopes, dreams, and wishes.
