This May is definitely a month to remember. It may not have started very eventfully, but things are going to change soon, and they will change big time. The first third of May is the silence before the storm. Mid-May is the storm actually. And the last week of it will be the blessing after the storm.
From May until September 2018, the planets Uranus and Mars will be in an intense dance with each other. They will be guiding us to make some bold changes in our lives. The event of the month is considered as the ingress of Uranus into Taurus. Unless you are older than your middle 80s, you were not even born the last time when Uranus was in Taurus.
The planet Uranus takes about 84 years to go around the zodiac.
So when it changes signs, it brings big changes.
The last time when it changed signs and moved into Aries was on the 11th of March 2011. On that day, Fukushima happened. We don’t want to scare you, the transits of Uranus are not always bad. But we only want to make you conscious of the magnitude of this transit.
Uranus is also the planet of change and revolution. Mars is the planet of action and masculine power. When such energies combine, we will all be given a strong desire to change and revolutionize our lives by taking action and finding our inner warrior.
In fact, we should use this energy to really rise up and take control of our lives and the direction which we wish to head in. This is also great energy which is good for breaking off on the course that you have been traveling on, as well as adventuring into something that is completely new.
If you have been playing it secure, or if you have been living from your comfort zone for long, this energy will really force you to rise up and start finding your inner strength and inner warriors, so that you can set off on a path which has more ambition and more growth.
Under this energy, you are going to get a chance to leap.
Also, you will be guided to find your courage and confidence so that you can create the life which you really desire. With every one of us is the power and potential to rise up into who we are meant to be.
When we are living for other people, when we live in the shadows, or when we shy away from our real selves, it throws us off course, as well as leads us to confirm or just go along with the crowd.
With finding our journey and doing things in our timing, as well as celebrating our uniqueness is what this dance of Uranus and Mars energy is all about.
Probably, you have already heard it, and it is going to remind you again:
With Uranus, you can just expect the unexpected.
Uranus is also one of the most changeable planets. It is actually the box of chocolates of the zodiac – with Uranus; you will never know what you are going to get. What you can be sure is that what you will get is going to bring you some positive changes in your life. Uranus also might shake you at first, but it will always bring freedom and liberation so that you can live more authentically and purposefully.
Uranus and Mars are active together from May 16-September 18, 2018 with the most significant dates being: the 16th of May, the 1st of August and the 16th of September.
Here, we will present you the most important aspects for the rest of this month:
On the 19th of May, 2018:
The planet Venus enters in Cancer. Cancer is a sensitive, nurturing and maternal sign. No matter if you have Cancer in your chart, you feel ‘at home.’ With the planet Venus in the sign of Cancer, your love relationships can become more intimate, more connected. Venus also rules money and finances so that you can become more careful with your money in the weeks that come.
On the 21st of May, 2018:
The Sun enters in the sign of Gemini. This is also the time of the year when chances appear everywhere in nature. No one can know better than a Gemini how to seize chances. The transit of the Sun through the sign of Gemini is an invitation to be curious, as well as explore the world with the mind of a beginner and find what works and what does not work through trial and error.
On the 25th of May, 2018:
The planet Jupiter enters in Scorpio in trine Neptune in Pisces. This is actually a wonderful transit, and even though it may not bring big changes in your life, it is going to make you feel more at ease, more in touch with your spiritual nature.
On the 29th of May, 2018:
We have a Full Moon at 8° Sagittarius. The Full Moon in Sagittarius is not engaged in any strong aspect. There may also be a sense of uncertainty about what to do next, now that Uranus changed signs and your life was also turned upside down. You should listen to your intuition! The ruler of the Full Moon, which is Jupiter, is actually engaged in a beautiful water trine with Neptune in Pisces and Venus in Cancer, helping you with a smooth transition.
On the 30th of May, 2018:
The planet Mercury is entering in Gemini. Mercury has also been busy as a bee this month. He changed signs three times. Mercury was also at 13° in the sign of Aries on the 1st of May, on 14th of May Mercury moved into Taurus, and end of May it will find it already in Gemini! This month, things can happen so fast that you do not even have time to make proper sense of what is going on. You should wait until Mercury goes retrograde in July in order to get a clear retrospective of the events of May.
While we are being encouraged to make some changes, we also need to surrender to the flow, as well as permit ourselves to be guided by the Universe.
