The messenger planet will backtrack into Taurus on May 22, continuing the earth/air themes of relationships and value as we reflect on matters surrounding them.

The Sun also makes a glorious aspect to Neptune, so whatever you release, it will lead you down a better path. Mars conjuncts Neptune for the remainder of the week and this is the precipice of a fresh start. 

The Sun moves into Gemini and makes a harmonious trine to Pluto on May 20. This will provide you with a bright and optimistic view of the present and future. As Mercury crosses paths with the Sun and sextiles Jupiter, you’re motivated to start taking action. However, on May 22, Mercury backtracks into Taurus and hits you with some surprise maintenance fees. This might be a car repair or just a bill you weren’t expecting. Don’t dwell in the frustration because Mars comes home to your sign on May 24, and you’ve got better things to be all fired up about. It might as well be your season, because you’re still calling the shots. 

Venus moves into Taurus on May 28 giving you some extra help in attracting your desires. Be mindful of your spending because with Venus in this house, flashy and expensive things will catch your eye. With Mars conjunct Jupiter at this time, you’ll want to give yourself the world. By all means treat yourself, but set a budget. Mercury is still retrograde after all. The new moon in Gemini on May 30 ends the month but sets the tone for the next one. This day will be a mind-opening experience. Use this period to explore new thoughts and tap into different streams of consciousness, as this lunation smoothly connects to your planet, Mars.
