May 2024

Because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of May in your home and family sector, the solar spotlight is always on home, family and/or property matters at this time each year. Venus’ return on 29th April also means that as you move into the new month, home is where your heart is and where you will be developing a stronger sense of what you do and don’t want. While the Sun and Venus will return each year and having them here at the same time is an advantage, the real advantage comes from having them here during Jupiter’s final weeks here. With the planet of luck and expansion leaving on 26th May, this is a month for investing in the future. While the Sun will leave on 21st May and Venus on 24th May, Mercury’s return on 16th May will keep the momentum going until Mars returns next month to exploit the full potential. When Mars returns, he will want to make things happen and get things done, with Mercury offering a chance to stay on after Jupiter leaves to keep your head in the game and the communication lines open. While this will keep the momentum going and home and family matters will remain important, this is when the playful, creative and adventurous side of life’s fence will start opening up. Over recent months the Sun, Venus, Mercury and Mars have all crossed the lunar nodes, something that put pressure on the South Node in an adventurous part of your chart, while an eclipsing Full Moon was the ultimate chance to challenge old excuses. However, the tables are about to turn and it begins with the Sun’s return to a playful and creative part of your chart on 21st May, followed by Venus’ return on 24th May and Jupiter’s return on 26th May. While this is the point in each year when the Sun will shift the solar spotlight onto matters of the heart and all things fun, playful, romantic and creative, Jupiter is here for the next 13 months. At some point they will all form a friendly aspect to the South Node, powering up the playful, creative and adventurous side of life’s fence.

May 2024

To begin with, this is an ordinary month, which means no planetary activity on the romantic or relationship fronts and just the Moon’s monthly visits to keep you emotionally engaged and connected. The first will be the Moon’s return to your romantic sector from 9th May to 11th May, something that these romantically charged lunar vibes will work to make the most romantically charged days of any month. However, as the Moon moves through this is going to enhance your heart’s over the horizon radar and this is when a sense of anticipation will be noticeably building, for it is just 10 days later that the Sun will not only return to your romantic sector on 21st May, something that at this time each year will always put the solar spotlight on matters of the heart and all things romantic, but will open the floodgates for what comes next. It is two days later that Venus, planet of love will return to begin what she will always work to make some of the most romantically charged weeks of any year. However, it is just two days later and while Venus is still settling in that Jupiter will return to begin your luckiest year for love, matters of the heart and all things romantic in over a decade on 26th May. With the planets of love and luck meeting up in your romantic sector for the first time in 12 years, this is going to get this off to an auspicious start and with it, a chance to well and truly break the romantic drought. With Jupiter here until June 2025, the days of having no planetary activity on the romantic front will be over. Meanwhile, with no planetary activity in your relationship sector and none until the Sun, Venus and Mercury return in July, the Moon’s monthly visit from 13th May to 16th May will be a valuable chance to check in and become more emotionally engaged. While this will be an ordinary monthly visit and the Moon will only be here for a few days, it will not only move through during Mercury, the planet of communication’s final days in your communication sector before leaving on 16th May, but for its only visit while Mars is making its first visit there in two years. This will be a chance to piggyback off Mars’ war on communication barriers.

May 2024

As you move into the new month Mars, the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos is just leaving your income sector. While Mars won’t stick around to have any direct impact on the month itself, he has done enough to not only influence the coming month but the rest of this financial year. This was Mars’ first visit to your income sector in two years and as the last of the faster moving planets, he was the last to make contact with Saturn and Neptune, the planets that are here now until early 2026. However, as Mars didn’t visit your income sector in 2023, he wasn’t here when Saturn returned and while the Sun, Venus and Mercury will all return in 2025, he won’t return for another two years, after Saturn and Neptune have both left. This made this Mars’ first encounter with Saturn in your income sector in three decades and the last with Neptune here in our lifetime. Having spent his final days aligned with Mars and having aligned with Saturn earlier, Mars’ drive to fight for what you deserve has helped to fuel your long term dreams and aspirations, leaving you with something that you can continue to fight for. With Mars gone so too is the urgency and with Saturn and Neptune staying on with the resolve to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes, it becomes more about the journey but thanks to Mars, motivated and with a renewed sense of what’s possible. The Moon’s return to your income sector from 3rd May to 5th May will bring a valuable chance to check in and get a sense of the shift this has created. However, this could also act as a trigger for any untapped income potential Mars has left in his wake. That will also be the case when the Moon comes full circle on 30th May. Meanwhile, on the other side of the sky the asteroid Juno, the queen of commitment is back in direct motion. This is giving you a chance to look to the future with confidence and thanks to a partnership with Venus, the planet of money, especially when it comes to financial matters on the home front. The Moon’s return to your financial sector from 16th May to 18th May will give you a better read on money matters.
