Summary: A month focused on travel, higher education, and partnerships. Mid-month, you may make an important commitment, and a contract could materialize. The end of the month turns your focus to your career, and you may get a new job, title, or salary.
Extended Horoscope: April 28th sees a solar eclipse in your 9th house of travel, higher education, and foreign people and places, indicating that you may be making some initiations in this area of life. The eclipse is conjunct Mercury, and reaching out to Neptune in your partnership sector, suggesting that a prominent person in your life may be along for the ride! Sometime over the next six months, you may go on an important trip with your honey, or perhaps partner up with someone on a writing, publishing, or broadcasting project. The eclipse also reaches out to Pluto in your 5th house of fun and love, so if you’re going on a trip, it’s sure to be full or romance and fun! Any business partnerships will have extra creative power behind them as well. Watch for May 5th, when the Sun in your travel sector will smooch Jupiter in your house of hopes and dreams- good news may come to you on this day!
There are a few hiccups to get past early in the month. On May 2nd, Mercury in your foreign travel sector will oppose Saturn in your local travel sector, indicating that you may have scheduling or transportation issues. You may even have a hard time communicating anything you’ve been wanting to say, as these sectors also rule higher thinking and communication. This would be a poor time to sign a contract or buy a car. This aspect will be similar on May 10th, when it will be the Sun’s turn to oppose Saturn.
Money matters should feel some relief, as Venus enters your 8th house of shared finances on May 3rd. Additionally, career matters begin to ramp up on May 7th, as your ruler, Mercury, enters Gemini and your 10th house, giving you the professional edge. Just watch out for May 11th, when both of the planets will cause disruption. On this day, Venus will oppose Mars in your income house, once again blurring the lines between money you earn, share, and spend. Also on this day, Mercury will square Neptune in your partnership sector, and you could fight with an employer, business partner, or significant other.
Luckily, May 12th is looking good, as you ruler, Mercury, reaches out to Mars, possibly bringing news of a raise your way!
May 14th sees a full moon occur in Scorpio and your 3rd house of communication. An important contract may be presented to you on this day, but read the fine print carefully. Venus in your money house will square Pluto in your love, fun, and children house, so something may not work out the way you want. Additionally, this full moon is conjunct Saturn, planet of tests and limitations. While Saturn can lend stability to any ventures, he also needs to tear down existing structures, which can be difficult. You may hear news about a car, trip, writing project or sibling at this time.
Luckily, May 15th looks like a good day, as Venus will conjunct Uranus in your financial house, and the pair will reach out to your ruler, Mercury, in your career house. You may get a bonus or influx of cash that helps solve any problem that could have come up yesterday.
May 18th will be a day to watch out for, however, as Venus in your money sector will square Jupiter in your house of long-term projects and friendships. You may argue with a pal about money borrowed or owed, or encounter a financing snag for a dream project. The good news is that beginning on May 19th, Mars will go direct in your 2nd house of earned income. If money that you earned was held up in any way, it should now hit your account. If you’ve been in talks for a raise or new job, talks may speed up now.
The end of the month really ramps up your career, as the Sun moves into Gemini and your 10th house of fame and profession on May 21st. Then on May 24th, Jupiter in your long-term goals house will wave hello to Saturn in your communication house, and you may be presented with a beneficial contract! Alternatively, you may be planning to take a short trip with a group of friends, and if so, it looks like it will be a blast. April 28th sees a new moon in your career sector, which is trine Mars in your income house. You may be offered a prestigious new job, promotion, or assignment with a nice new salary, and you may even get some press for your efforts! Just be careful, as the moon will square Neptune in your partnership sector, and your success may spark the ire of your business partner or employer- perhaps they are upset that you are leaving them, or perhaps they feel they deserve credit too. Alternatively, you may be focusing so much on your career, that your boo gets a little jealous.
