HAPPY BIRTHDAY & SOLAR RETURN! You’re the bright light this month, with the Sun in your sign. Express yourself and share your scintillating energy with us. You’ll be especially magnetic on 5/21 & 6/17 (New Moon in GEMINI). Put some effort into enhancing your appearance, self-image and lifestyle; it could be a good time to get a facial, try a new hairdo, renew your wardrobe or update your media profile or photo. A partnership or teamwork situation could demand your attention on the Full Moon (6/3); strive for honesty, mutuality and clear communication. Pay attention to any feedback you get from your one-on-one relationships — increased self-awareness could be the result!
Mercury—your planet—is in TAURUS as this solar month begins, staying there through 6/10. During this period, you’ll want to focus on home, family & property matters. Take the time to put your domestic scene in comfortable, secure condition: tie up any loose ends, clean, sort and eliminate clutter and excess. Work & health matters may also need some attention. Once Mercury moves on to its own sign, GEMINI on 6/11, you’ll be polished up and ready to shine. Your wit, versatility & flexibility will be valued & enjoyed by those around you, especially for the next few weeks. Personal finances will be improving through 6/4, particularly on 5/26 & 6/2. This is a good time to look for a new source of income, make an investment or treat yourself to something special. Make sure that you’re on target with your nutritional & dietary needs, and nurture yourself in a variety of ways! From 6/5 on, you will likely attract some fun opportunities to exchange ideas & information, network, connect with siblings, relatives & neighbors – and take some short trips.
Since this past March, you’ve begun a process of restructuring your professional/public image and setting some realistic personal goals. You may be assuming a leadership role over the next few years, as you may be called upon to take increased responsibility in your community. Much could be accomplished if you choose to accept this mission!
With both Jupiter & Uranus now in your solar 12th house, you’ll want to focus on finishing up old projects, sorting, filing and clearing the decks. Particularly in work & health matters (or those involving your partner), you will be able to get a lot done in this upcoming year. Prepare the way for major personal expansion once Jupiter enters GEMINI in May ’24. Meanwhile, put your life & home base in order. Have a productive year ahead!
LONG-TERM FORECAST: You’ll be actively exploring new and creative ways to take care of business while Pluto transits CAPRICORN (2008–2024). During this 16-year cycle, you’ll be eliminating outworn structures, habits & relationships from your life, making way for new joint ventures and resurrected possibilities. Business partnerships, financial & parental obligations, insurance, taxes and legal matters could require periodic attention & follow-through. You could find yourself managing other people’s money & resources, setting up corporations, trusts, wills or retirement plans, receiving an inheritance or renewing vows. Once Pluto takes its initial steps into AQUARIUS (3/23 – 6/11/23), you’ll get a preview of things to come over the next 20 years. Travel, education, writing, publishing, marketing and sports could start playing a larger role in your life.
A subtle, yet significant shift in your personal & professional goals will occur while Neptune is in PISCES (2012–2026). You’re highly charismatic now and could achieve career success in such fields as politics, film-making, photography, health, spiritual healing, music or the arts. By aligning with your spiritual purpose & honoring your vision, your dreams can become realized!
With Uranus now in TAURUS (5/15/18–4/26/26), you are developing new skills & techniques, inventing unique methodologies and researching offbeat subjects. During this 7-year cycle, it’s the time for redefining priorities, clarifying your motives and clearing away any self-defeating behavior patterns or emotional debris. You may be inspired to make your home run more efficiently.
Your personal & professional goals will be undergoing a major restructuring while Saturn transits PISCES (starting on 3/7/23). You can assume a greater sense of responsibility, mastery and leadership in your chosen field. Whether you’re building a new career, solidifying your current one, running an organization or simply wanting greater control over your life, you could achieve your objectives with patience, discipline and conscientious effort. During this 3-year cycle, much can be accomplished of long-lasting value; go for what you want — you’re likely to get it!
While Jupiter transited ARIES (5/1/22—5/15/23), your social scene most likely became more active, exciting & interesting. Positive, knowledgeable individuals have been entering your life, and you have been connecting with those who share your interests & ideals. Collaboration has been the key!
On 5/16/23, Jupiter began its new year-long transit of TAURUS — you’ll be feeling the urge to finish up old projects, tie up loose ends and put your life & household in order. The focus will be on work & health issues, setting up systems and developing your skills. This is an excellent time for some self-analysis, clearing out the cobwebs and getting back to the basics.
