For you, this month's biggest news involves the departure of Uranus from your sign. It entered Aries in 2010, so you've had quite a run of upheaval, change, and revolution. Now, you receive a reminder of what a more settled life is like. Uranus will return to Aries briefly toward the end of this year, but its cosmic mission involves encouraging new and innovative ways to boost two things: your earned income and self-esteem. The fact that Uranus' departure coincides with a New Moon influencing earned income is a clear indication that you're about to start exploring and putting in place some clever - and possibly technology-based ideas - to boost your earning potential.
For the first time in 84 years, Uranus enters Taurus. That's big news. It resides in Taurus until November, moves back to Aries briefly and returns, more or less, from 2019 until 2026. As a sign known to resist change, you will undoubtedly have some adjusting to do to accommodate the planet of upheaval, chaos, and revolution. However, to say you will be aware of how positive any change process will be is an understatement. Attitudes of gratitude will replace any short, sharp shocks surrounding removal from comfort zones. A New Moon on the 15th brings a chance to reinvent your life as you want it to be. You have fantastic cosmic support to start making plans to achieve your deepest and most inspiring aspirations from now until November. Aim high!
If you feel pushed to immerse yourself in a quiet world of contemplation this month, then don't resist it. The planet of change, Uranus, starts the first phase of its eight-year journey to revolutionize your attitude and approach to your most private thoughts and aspirations. It could encourage you to consider new and innovative ways to achieve cherished goals, even if some appear unusual or unorthodox. This is reinforced by a New Moon pushing you to take time to yourself connect with how you can express yourself uniquely and in ways that differ from comfortable options chosen previously. By the 29th, a partnership or commitment is reviewed. Are you and someone on the same page? Absolutely!
The planet of change, Uranus, has grand plans to alter your social scene and involvement with any group efforts. If you've lost touch with friends or want to meet new ones, then that will be the theme from May until November, and from March 2019 until April 2026. Talk about long-term change! The push to interact more with peers is reinforced by a New Moon influencing friends, groups and networking on the 15th. Don't be surprised if new acquaintances are far-removed from your usual types. A Full Moon influences change on the work front – a new job perhaps, or an opening due to someone leaving. Then, delightful and sensuous Venus enters your sign on the 19th until June 13th, boosting your confidence - and pulling power - immensely!
If you thought all was predictable and comfortable in your professional life, then hold on to your hat! Major changes await, and you could find your career heads down a route you'd never have considered previously. From this month until April 2026 (on and off), you'll need to be as open-minded and flexible as possible as Uranus pushes you to reassess career goals or career direction. This is reinforced by a New Moon bringing a new career chapter, so avoiding change is not an option. Whether a promotion alters the trajectory suddenly of where you thought you were heading career-wise or an opportunity to start your own business presents itself, the time has come to pursue your true life's purpose.
This month, a long-term process commences that will alter your long-held beliefs, attitudes, and philosophies. This could involve your attitude toward religion or spiritual matters. It could also involve other ways in which your mind is 'broadened,' perhaps from a new form of studying or learning curve. From May until November, Uranus, the planet of upheaval, chaos, and revolution offers a glimpse into what your mind-altering process will involve before it kicks off properly from March 2019 until April 2026. From mid-month, a stronger focus will exist on improving your health and diet. Then, a Full Moon on the 29th puts the emphasis squarely on home and family matters. A change of abode or within your home is possible. So too is an emotional scenario involving a family member. Try to 'bend with the breeze' rather than resist the winds of change this month.
A powerful and far-reaching process of change commences, influencing 'deep sharing.' This covers everything connected with money from sources other than earnings to your attitude toward birth, life, and death, with intimacy thrown in for good measure! A New Moon on the 15th brings a new chapter to put you more in control of finances or investments. With Uranus, the planet of change and revolution, influencing the same area from this month until November and then from March 2019 until April 2026, you'll be willing to take more financial risks, or invest in schemes others consider unusual. Coming back to intimacy, you could also feel a stronger urge to experiment sexually and rewrite your own version of the Kama Sutra! Mars influences sensual pleasures and could create a sense of urgency with enjoying them. Then, Venus influences your professional life, until June 13th. Expect to discover how appreciated you are, professionally!
If you feel something connected with a relationship or commitment has become too routine-like, then prepare for a wave of upheaval. Uranus, the planet of change and sudden developments, influences relationships from this month until November, giving you a glimpse into the significant and far-reaching changes coming to a committed partnership until Uranus settles in properly from March 2019 until April 2026. Be assured that whatever needs 'shaking' will be shaken and focus could exist squarely on any relationship comfort zones. A New Moon on the 15th reinforces the need to follow a new commitment path in some way. You'll also likely find tension and passions running high on home and family fronts. Mars influences all things domestic from May to November, and your cosmic mission surrounds finding ways to keep the peace and focus this intense energy positively and constructively.
The 15th of May is a key date for everyone for two reasons. The first surrounds the arrival of Uranus in Taurus until November, and then from March 2019 to April 2026. The planet of change and upheaval has long-term plans to alter your routines and service to others. Your work and health are likely to be prime targets. Instigating changes to your job will be easier, and so too will be introducing changes to your health, diet or fitness. The second reason for the importance of the 15th involves a New Moon, influencing – you guessed it – your work and health! There's no escaping change on either or both fronts. Where work is concerned, changes could occur suddenly so expect the unexpected! A Full Moon in your sign on the 29th marks the start of a new chapter. Your attitude could become one of gratitude once tension and uncertainty diminish.
You might be quite content with routines or comfort zones within your love life. However, if any part of you yearns for spontaneity and excitement, then your wish is about to be granted in amazing ways. On May 15th, Uranus, the planet of change, upheaval and surprises influences affairs of the heart until November. It then takes up permanent residency from March 2019 until April 2026, so to say far-reaching and unignorable change affects romantic involvements is an understatement. On the same day, a New Moon influences love, romance, and creativity, bringing a fresh start in each area – so take your pick! If you choose to instigate a change, then resist doing so suddenly. You might not have considered a bigger picture properly. Also, Venus influences partnerships and commitments from May 19th until June 13th, bringing a greater sense of harmony and more focus to your closest relationships. Change is not only 'in the air,' but a gentle gust is about to become a gale. Being open-minded and flexible is more important now than ever before.
The biggest news for you this month surrounds your ruler, Uranus, shifting its focus from your communication and thought processes to your emotional foundations, particular home and family. It has been 84 years since the planet of sudden change and revolution focused its attention on this area and, until November, you receive a glimpse of what's in store before Uranus takes up full-time residency from March 2019 until April 2026. Your domestic set-up is likely to alter significantly. So too will connections with family members and relatives. This is supported further by a New Moon on the 15th influencing all the above areas and bringing a fresh start to anything domestic. Mars enters your sign on May 16th for an unusually long stay, but its energy could cause you to come across to others as argumentative or self-centered, so be careful. Roll with whatever changes occur. If you decide to instigate any yourself, then resist doing so suddenly. There could be bigger pictures to consider that you've overlooked.
If thought processes have reached brick walls recently, then those could crumble this month, especially from the 15th onward. A New Moon influences communication on all levels and brings a fresh start with negotiating contracts or agreements. On the same day, Uranus, the planet of change and upheaval influences your thinking and offers a glimpse into how unusual and possibly eccentric your thought processes are becoming until Uranus works full-time from March 2019 until April 2026. You're likely to welcome the constantly-changing ways in which you absorb, process and convey information. This could result in you coming up with ingenious or revolutionary ideas or plans that will intrigue and be welcomed by others. Romance features more on the agenda from 19th, as Venus influences true love until June 13th. Then, a Full Moon targets your career – and could bring a reward or professional recognition. Well done!
