Welcome to May, Aquarius. Last month, you used Mercury retrograde as an excuse to press pause on any life-changing conversations, and that’s a healthy coping skill. As an aloof air sign, you need a reminder not to ghost, but you can take time to think about what you want, whether it’s regarding a romance or a work situation. While Mercury doesn’t go direct until Sunday, May 14, you’re going to have to identify your wants and needs early in the month. On Monday, May 1, Pluto goes retrograde in your sign, Aquarius. Pluto is the planet of death and birth, of letting go of what no longer serves you to make room for what’s to come. So, whether you’re feeling like you’ve outgrown some friendships, tired of your job, or ready to end a relationship, now is the time to give your emotions the attention that they deserve.
And, if you don’t act weitestgehend, the stars may take care of these changes for you. Friday, May 5, brings a full moon and lunar eclipse in intense Scorpio. Astrologers call eclipses « cosmic wildcards » because they lead to swift change (that we’re not always emotionally prepared for). So, if you have yet to act upon your needs by now, don’t be surprised if change happens anyway during this eclipse. It’s important to own your needs before this date to ensure that you have some self of control.
While the first week of May sounds stressful, the stars bless you with a transit that’s all about rest and self-care, Aquarius. On Sunday, May 7, Venus, who rules beauty in addition to love and abundance, enters caring Cancer and your 6th House of Health. Astrologers aren’t doctors. When we talk about your health, we refer to wellness routines and how you can make yourself feel your best. In addition to getting plenty of sleep, this transit is a fun time to explore bold makeup looks or engage in beauty rituals such as a face mask.
