Here is a big week for transits, as many of them begin on Tuesday, May 10th.
On that day, Mercury goes retrograde in Gemini. You might find your carefully laid plans unraveling fast as Mercury goes retrograde in its ruling sign for the remainder of the month.
It’s not a good time to make any big decisions until June because you’ll experience brain fog and miscommunication. However, it is an excellent time to finish old projects, take some time to slow down and meditate, and even get some intuitive insight into your life, as it is a great time to consult with a psychic.
On the same day, Jupiter enters Aries. This transit encourages you to realize how much power you have over your life. Take action if your ideas are crazy enough to work. However, you also want to be sure to think before acting as if you may risk being overly and unrealistically optimistic about some things.
Then on Sunday, May 15th, there is a Full Moon in Scorpio and a lunar eclipse. After a powerful eclipse, you may feel emotionally depleted. This full moon is perfect for letting go of the past and moving forward with your career or personal goals. Be sure to indulge in some self-care on this day.
On the same day, the Sun in Taurus squares Saturn in Aquarius. You may need to spend some time alone after a stressful workday to relax after working with stubborn people. Everyone is going to be inflexible today, which is going to cause a lot of frustration.
However, on the same day, the Sun in Taurus sextiles Neptune in Pisces. This aspect will help tame the other one. That is because this is a humanitarian aspect that stimulates your idealist side. One can boost their self-esteem by contributing to a worthwhile cause. So why not begin your work-related charity? Let’s see how you are doing based on your sign this week.
Aries – You may be focused on the worry of competitors trying to take clients from you behind your back. However, you will find this week that you have a lot of supportive friends around you that will help put your mind at ease as Jupiter enters your sign. You will want to take some time for rest and self-care during the eclipse, especially as you can become very depleted.
Taurus – You may find that how you handle stress at work and in your personal life will impact your appearance. Those dark circles under your eyes give away that you are not getting enough rest, for example. Or, have you been putting on some weight? You may be stress-eating or not being active enough. Maybe your cortisol levels are high from stress. This is a time to get to the bottom of those issues so you can become healthier.
Gemini – Your ruler is going retrograde, making you question your value and what you can genuinely offer. You may underestimate how valuable you are as an employee or a business owner if you have your business. You may question your self-worth, but the best thing for you to do this week is talking to your supportive friends who can encourage and reassure you.
Cancer – You need to focus on communicating your needs well and clearly as the energies from the Full Moon, and the eclipse will skyrocket your emotions. It may be an excellent time to take the days around the Full Moon off to indulge in some self-care which will help you think clearly and effectively.
Leo – The focus is on family for you, Leo, this week, and you may find yourself having to take care of issues surrounding your family this week. That means there is a chance that you could have to take some time off of work to do that if that means there is no time for you for self-care.
Virgo – Your ruler is in retrograde, but your imagination is vital this week. You will want to take advantage of your creative side, whether it has to do with marketing, creating new projects, or even journaling. So make the most of it this week.
Libra – You will have the urge to work overtime this week, and you will want to be extremely careful not to deplete your reserves when it comes to overworking. There is a sense of urgency that some projects need to be done, but be cautious as the Full Moon and eclipse may deplete your energy further. Ensure that you nourish yourself well.
Scorpio – You may be in a tricky situation this week, and the reason for that is that there is an energy for a contract of some sort that you may have to sign. Or you may have to negotiate on something. However, with Mercury going into retrograde, that is what makes this situation difficult. That means you have to check everything thoroughly before signing anything.
Sagittarius – You will find that your intuition is stronger and more vivid this week, and you will have the urge to work quickly as your ruler enters Aries. However, you still want to go with your intuition before taking anything additional that could cause burnout potentially. Your problem-solving abilities will be better this week too.
Capricorn – You may have the urge to take classes to enhance your skills to take on a new role eventually, or you may want to be able to offer different services. However, your energy will deplete this week quickly, especially with the Full Moon and the eclipse. Think about it, but since Mercury is in retrograde, you will not immediately want to act on this.
Aquarius – This is a week when you are likely to take on some extra responsibilities, and you may have to delegate some extra work that you do not need to do. You will need to remind yourself that you are in charge of your life if you feel that you are overworked. Either delegate or find innovative ways to work smarter, which you can this week easily.
Pisces – You will feel an urgency to do some humanitarian work this week, whether you have a coworker that needs some support and you will set up a GoFundMe, or there is a cause that you want to be involved in. Still, you will have this urgency to be of significant help to others.
Next week, we are entering Gemini season, but as Mercury in retrograde continues, there will be a lot of confusion. But you can get through it.
