May 8th, 2022Horoscopes with Jennifer Hart May 9 – May 23

The dreamy month of April has come to a close and we find ourselves moving into a more action-oriented time. With expansive Jupiter and energizing Mars moving into the pro-active sign of Aries this month, there are topics in your life that might get a boost, or you have the ability to level up in some way. Fair Venus has moved into fast-paced Aries as well, we all need to mind our impulse spending for the next few weeks. Mischievous Mercury turns retrograde from May 10th, a phenomenon that gives the illusion that this planet is moving backwards across the sky. In fact, it’s due to our point of view from Earth and the orbital cycle of Mercury that bring about this effect three to four times a year. It’s a time to reassess, reconnect, reunite, or revisit certain areas of our lives. It is commonly known for causing technology glitches, miscommunications, and misunderstandings but I find it great for wrapping up any projects that have been languishing on my desk. The second Eclipse (they always happen in pairs) takes place on May 17th and can be a continuation of the stories that have been kicking around since last month. Read on to see how you might harness the power of the planets. If you know your rising sign, start there first.

Aries:

You are more endearing and likable than usual until the end of the month, magnetic even. There could be opportunities to attract helpful or influential people to you at this time. You could have the ability to manifest something new for yourself in May. Money matters are in the spotlight, with fresh opportunities to earn money or boost your resources. There might be a re-discovering of talents or going back to re-learn information with fresh eyes.  Indulge in a little pampering this month, eat, drink and be merry!

Taurus:

Another busy month on the books for you, plenty of opportunity for fresh starts, or some new projects out in your community. This is a great time to consider what you would like to go after and how or who you would like to partner with to bring your visions to fruition. This fortnight window is a time to nourish yourself with your personal brand self-care and some mental stimulation. You will need to find the balance between looking after yourself and the needs of others at this time. May the odds be ever in your favour.

Gemini:

A little personal retreat before your birthday (if you’re a Gemini Sun) might be on the agenda, especially if you’ve been feeling a little lack lustre. You might find yourself with a lot on your mind, and even more to say. Social gatherings of all sorts can be more rewarding in May, career networking and even social media can be fulfilling for you. Try to avoid the over-sharing that you might be prone to, especially with Mercury retrograde. This is not a great time to volunteer as anyone’s secret keeper. If you’ve ever hoped that a friendship turns into “something more” this might be your time.

Cancer:

There is a warm light shining on your friendships, a time to reach out and join up with people that share similar interests and values. This can also be a call to let go of associations that no longer enrich your life, make some room for new people. You might be soon receiving accolades at work, if so, celebrate!  If this doesn’t sound like you remember to aim high, think big and expand what you think is possible for yourself. Lean into what you love and are passionate about, and success will be hot on your heels.

Leo:

You might be feeling ambitious at work this month, try to find a way to delegate and step into more of a leadership role (you’re a Leo, you love being the boss). Do your best to make some plans and goals, both long term and short term. Analyse where your past might be holding you back and how can you change these patterns. Opportunities to travel abroad, write a large body of work or to just have an adventure are coming your way. Any ways that you can expand your world, inner or outer can bring you some big light bulb moments.

Virgo:

This is a time of year to engage in deep conversations and open yourself up to new ideas, by the end you might find yourself transformed. You might be having a crisis of faith, asking a lot of deep internal questions and perhaps over-analysing, it’s a favoured past time for you. It might be time to pivot, make a big change, those connecting conversations with others might help you mull everything over and talk your way to a conclusion. On a lighter note, there might be opportunities to make some big-ticket purchases, but also taking on a debt like a car loan or mortgage.

Libra:

The month of May might not be one that’s for the good books.  Keep in mind the mantra “this too shall pass” and if you aren’t feeling the joy, it will hopefully be around the next corner for you. This is a great time for a clear out of some of your possessions, if your life is feeling too cluttered. On the upswing, if you’re in a relationship, it’s a great time to take a mini break with your love, you’ll really enjoy each other’s company right now.  If you’re looking for love, some prospects are sure to pop up in the immediate future. Also consider taking the Mercury retrograde to reassess or review your insurance policies, taxes, and investments.

Scorpio:

May sees a month where your closest relationships are in the spotlight, a time to take the pulse and evaluate, a little triage might be called for. Are you able to shine as bright as you like or are you dulling your sparkle to avoid blinding the other person? Finding equality, harmony, and balance can be a soothing balm for discordant situations. Overindulgences need to be kept in check right now, a balance needs to be found with your health routine, you’ll be more likely to swing to one extreme or the other, kale juice or creamy carbs. Hot tip: if you replace potato chips with grapefruit as a snack, you can lose up to 90% of the joy you have in life.  

Sagittarius:

Appreciation can be a key to happiness, a little gratitude daily practice can help with the drudgery of your daily chores. Acts of compassion, sacrifice and serving others are in focus for you, fulfilling even. Looking to ways that you can serve others and take pride in it, even if it is a simple mundane task. On the other side of the coin, this time ushers in fun, creativity, joy and a little romance. Be daring, try your hand at a new craft or hobby, don’t be afraid to show people what you’re capable of, even if you don’t think it’s chef’s kiss perfection.

Capricorn:

Are you chasing your dreams with your whole heart Capricorn? It’s so easy to get caught up in the mundane that we forget to take stock of lives and change course if we aren’t moving in a direction that fills us up. There might be an urge to fit in with the crowd and blend in rather than standing apart. Finding joy with your family and spending more time at home might be a place to let your heart expand. Your home is a reflection of your wellbeing, fill it with beautiful things and the people that help your heart soar.

Aquarius:

In The Wizard of Oz, all Dorothy wanted to do was get home to Kansas and (spoiler alert) she found that she had that power all along. Home and family might be feeling a little unsettled right now but home isn’t always a physical place, it resides internally too. Turning inwards to centre ourselves can help in turbulent times, make your internal home a beautiful, calm place to return to. In the outer world, your powers of persuasion are strong, you have the gift of the gab this month. May is a good time to have an adventure with your siblings or to mend fences if they are broken.

Pisces:

The old proverbs about mind over matter and thoughts become things, are coming up until the end of May.  Make resolutions, get curious and find some affirmations that speak to you. Opportunities to earn more money are headed your way, but you might spend it as quickly as you earn it. Which isn’t always a bad thing, it has the possibility to bring you great joy, maybe that piece of artwork that you’ve had your eye on find it’s way onto your wall. Nothing wrong with that, the right piece can be a great investment!
