May 2017 Monthly Horoscopes
By Jennifer Angel
April was a month of Planetary Retrograde, which made it a perfect time to tackle past or difficult situations, some of which would have prompted you to jump out for your comfort zone. This month, we still have transformational Pluto, karmic Saturn and beneficial Jupiter all retrograde, so you can still expect for a little reality to hit home, which can be a good thing. Mercury, the planet of commerce and communication, will come out of retrograde early in the month, on the third. Give it a few days to settle back into a direct motion and developments can take place at a faster rate. This month’s full Moon, the Moon in Scorpio and Sun in Taurus, can cause you to have a change of heart. This can take place all of a sudden, due to unexpected insight or information, especially as Pluto is also connected. Shortly after, as Mars and Jupiter interact, your insights can swiftly and productively be put into action promising a positive outcome. The new Moon in Gemini later in the month on the 25th gets you thinking about new ideas and concepts and a connection between Mars and Saturn help to keep it real. The month closes with a positive interaction between Mercury and Pluto, which will open the door for discussion to take place.
Venus, the planet of love and money, in your sign for the whole month focuses your attention on what you want your life to be like. Mercury comes out of retrograde at the start of the month, which kick starts your ideas into discussion and action. And the new Moon towards the end of the month encourages you to set goals and believe in yourself to be able to attract and achieve them.
This month, get your grand plan in mind and set achievable action points to start making your goals and dreams a reality. The new Moon in your money zone and a connection between action planet Mars and lucky Jupiter can get things going in the right direction with development at work. And the full Moon in your love zone can bring something in your personal life to a head, which helps you either close the door or open it further.
As Mercury comes out of retrograde, you’ll have more clarity. New Moon in your sign, towards the end of the month, signifies a new beginning in some way, so get your thoughts together. Prepare to clean out and discard anything no longer useful; people, things and situations, to make space for something new and fabulous. Friends from the past can offer advice. Love can surprise you, in a good way. And with money, pay attention to your instincts.
News can come through about your home or domestic life this month, and most likely faster than you thought, so keep your schedule a little flexible. There is a new start approaching in the stars, and for now, it’s about getting organized for it by thinking through your next steps. Relationships can reach a stage of enlightenment in some way. A work situation can pay up financially, but be prepared to work through it to achieve the outcome you want.
One of your keys to success this month is to look after yourself, physically. When you look, and feel good, you enter your achievement zone and can accomplish any task, big or small, you set your mind to. This is a positive time for learning to advance your knowledge for career development. Love enters a more permanent stage, or you can have thoughts of meeting someone you can make a commitment to. Move forward with an open heart and mind.
As Mercury, your ruler, comes out of retrograde, communication and correspondence with both business and personal situations becomes easier. But be careful not to make any assumptions or rash statements. New Moon energy in your career zone indicates something new and interesting can take place with work. And the influence of Jupiter also suggests that your cash flow can get a boost. With love, be open, honest and keep it real.
You know what you are capable of, Libra, so don’t allow self-doubt to creep in to your thoughts. Venus in your love zone can connect you with someone special. And with Mercury in your opposite sign coming out of retrograde, you can move forward with more certainty this month with the interactions you have with those closest to you. A financial matter that concerns your home environment or family in can present an opportunity worth considering.
The full Moon in your sign can bring certain things to a head now, and it’s likely to be something that has been brewing for a while. It may be that you can no longer make excuses for someone, and the result of you taking action, moves the energy and resolves the situation. With love, keep in mind that communication can solve most scenarios. And at work and with money, Venus will help you connect with the right people at the right time.
Get ready for love! Romance gets the attention of your heart. Whether you are in a relationship or on the single scene, cupid can send his arrows in your direction and without notice. Invitations from friends can be pleasant, joyful and loving, make time for some fun. A financial situation gathers momentum now and can result in positive development, but it will be up to you to put in the work to make it happen.
This month, there are opportunities at work, but to be productive you will need to set your plan of action. Choose your highest priorities and let everything else slide to the bottom of the list. Be careful not to take on too much, as it can result in scattered energy and less output. Communication around the home and with family can straighten out now. And a connection with someone close can move to the next stage, be open to doing things differently.
Full Moon energy in your career zone can switch things up at work. Be prepared for people or situations to be different. What happens next can open doors for you, even if it does seem unsettling. As Mercury comes out of retrograde, you can enter discussions, particularly to do with your home environment or a creative concept. With love, knowledge of how someone else feels can be enlightening. If money is involved, be sure to get the facts, not hearsay.
An interaction with someone powerful and influential can go your way, but don’t assume anything, find out the exact details. Mercury comes out of retrograde early in the month, but there can be confusion in the first week, especially with money. Venus, the love goddess, gets you thinking about your love life, how it is and how you want it to be. Friends are there for you, reach out if you need to talk something over. Home and family development is positive.
