Star Wisdom | May 2011


We get something of a break this month between April’s Mercury Retrograde and June’s eclipses. Hope you enjoy May’s mellower astrology!

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)…Can you take all of this enthusiasm (or desperation) and channel it into making the money you need to manifest your big plan? Yes you can, but you might need to let go of a self-centered or self-defeating way of thinking about money and values. Focus on creating win-win relationships and the money will take care of itself.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)…Last month you learned how to take time out and check in with your inner guidance system. Use this month’s strong Taurus energy to update your personal brand based on the soul data flowing to you now. Stepping into the new you gets easier as the month goes on — and you should see a positive relationship shift as a result.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)…The first two weeks of May are prime time for working the phones, connecting with contacts and taking advantage of the sparkling career energy that kicks in after April’s Mercury Rx. Mid-month starts a more inward, visionary period. Focus on clearing out old, stale energy to make room for new inspiration in June.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)…You finally get a break on the relationship front, freeing you up to go for the opportunity that suddenly abounds. Friends, colleagues and community are super supportive this month, helping you take the next step in your life’s work, rejuvenate your creativity and generally feel better about life than you have in some time.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)…All of those insights you’ve been having suddenly reveal themselves as not only exhilarating, but real-world ready. A chance to travel, study or teach opens up in a way that connects directly to your career goals. Success feels much easier when you see opportunity everywhere you look.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)…Life feels a lot safer and more sensible by mid-month, as the planets parade out of your 8th House of transition and surrender into your 9th House of the higher mind. This planetary shift into a compatible Earth sign enables you to start making sense of the intense emotional experiences you’ve been having in your relationships. Turns out what didn’t kill you in April really did make you stronger.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)…Relationships and money interact this month, and you’re likely to either love it or hate it – most likely a little bit of both. Resist the temptation to play Mr. Nice Guy because learning to fight fair for what you want in May enables you to benefit from the major financial and partnership energy that kicks in next month.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)…You’ve been working hard on yourself, learning to live like a sacred warrior, and now you get to put your new skills to the test. That’s right — relationship alert! The new person coming in this month actually looks like someone who knows how to play fair in love and war. Lucky you. P.S. You are ready for this.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)…Get to a good place with an amour or creative project by mid-month. Even though your creative/love energy stays strong all month long, you’re going to be working very hard after the 15th. So give it all you’ve got and express yourself fully before then. That way when it’s time to get down to work you won’t have any regrets.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)…You finally get off the hot seat! After a couple months of pretty intense home, emotional or family drama, May brings a much more creative, outgoing, romantic vibe. Time in Nature is very rejuvenating, as is any kind of artistic or creative activity. You might even find yourself feeling surprisingly frisky for an old mountain goat.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)…Soak up all of the springtime Nature you can this month. Every moment you spend with your feet in the grass or your fingers in the earth is magically bringing more of what you want into your life. It makes sense really — when you feel good, you’re saying yes to life. And when you say yes to life, life naturally says yes back to you.

Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)…You’ve been working hard, making money and trying to make sure everyone is taken care of and now you need to lighten up a little. Take at least one short trip that puts you in touch with Beauty and gets you out in Nature. Remember that one secret of successful people is that they know how to reward themselves for their hard work.
