The week begins on Tuesday, May 17th, with Mars in Pisces conjunct Neptune in Pisces. This is the day for you to tap into your creative side and start setting things in motion when it comes to manifesting whatever you desire. However, this is not the right time to make any significant decisions, as Mercury is retrograde, which will lead you to act before thinking, and your thought processes will be weak as a result.
The Sun enters Taurus on May 19th, and Pluto enters Capricorn on Thursday, May 20th. Now is the perfect time to examine your budget and brainstorm ways to increase your income. But, now is not the time to take action.
Mercury in Gemini is at a sextile to Jupiter in Aries that same day. Despite Mercury’s retrograde, this is a good day for planning and visualizing success, as making decisions and concentrating will be easier. Plan, but do not take action yet.
On Friday, May 20th, the Sun enters the sign of Gemini. A happy birthday to you, Gemini. You’ll want to spend the next few weeks socializing and trying new things. Taking advantage of Gemini’s versatility is an excellent time to venture out and try something new.
The Sun in Gemini conjuncts Mercury in Gemini on Saturday, May 21st. You can also catch up with friends or clients on this day without feeling awkward. On this day, happy hour is perfect, but don’t get into serious political conversations unless you are on the same page because those can become heated.
During the week of May 22nd, Mercury retrograde enters Taurus. Mercury is in Taurus for its second retrograde this year, so the retrograde will feel slower than usual. This will lead to inflexibility and difficulties in making decisions. During transitions like these, you may feel stuck for weeks at a time. So instead, do the things that calm you, such as getting in touch with nature, meditating, and doing anything else that relaxes you.
In Pisces, Mars sextiles Pluto in Capricorn the same day. High goal-oriented traits make you more likely to achieve unrealistic goals due to your strength and stamina. Mars is retrograde, so keep things in perspective. See what happens this week with your sign backed by a tarot card pull.
Aries – Ace Of Wands
The position of your ruler, along with the energy in your Eleventh House, makes this an excellent week for you to manifest whatever you would like. So why not pursue your wishes this week? Keeping your energy focused on what you want can help you manifest them very quickly.
Taurus – Temperance
This week, it is essential that you find time for meditation as you will quickly become overwhelmed, especially if you have to work overtime and handle family responsibilities. Clearing your mind daily is essential for keeping your productivity strong, so give yourself that time.
Gemini – Four Of Swords
In general, you may feel very slow when your ruler is retrograde and entering a sign where it can slow down anything. During this week, it’s essential to stay hydrated, eat nutritious foods, and limit sugar (except for a slice of birthday cake if your birthday falls during this week). The result will be an inability to focus and a desire to nap constantly when you are sluggish.
Cancer – Nine Of Pentacles Reversed
If you own a business, you may question whether or not you are charging what you are worth. Alternatively, you might wonder if your company is paying you too little. Mercury is in retrograde and moving back into Taurus this month, so you will begin to wonder if you are earning as much as you deserve. You need to evaluate this.
Leo – Page Of Swords
This week, your focus is on communication. During Mercury’s retrograde, you must be extra careful with your words. If you have inadvertently said something to someone in the past, you may find that they are not happy with you. Your friend or colleague could be feeling this way. Whenever you send texts or emails, you should be extremely careful so that you don’t say anything you don’t mean. Be sure to read them carefully before you send them.
Virgo – Six Of Cups
Your ruler is entering Taurus this week, so that you will be learning a lot about your family history. You may also discover some old family secrets during this week. Alternatively, if the former does not apply to your situation, you may have to take time off of work to help a family member this week.
Libra – Ace Of Cups
As Gemini season begins for you, your creative side will be able to flourish. Additionally, you will be more creative when planning or marketing your work, designing websites, and blogging. However, you won’t be happy because you may find some creative ways to make a fashion statement this week.
Scorpio – Page Of Pentacles
This is the perfect time to show your pet some extra love. You will need to plan plenty of time for them if you don’t work from home. This is an excellent time to get a pet if you don’t already have one. If neither of those applies, why not consider donating to your local animal shelter?
Sagittarius – Three Of Cups
This week, don’t put your work before your relationships. There may be too much work on your plate, but this is the time to balance work and relationships. You can spend extra time on your friendships and romantic relationships this week. Socializing with colleagues is also a good idea.
Capricorn – Ace Of Pentacles
A source of money other than your employer is likely to provide you with cash. Possibly you’ve won a small lottery, or perhaps you’ve received a refund from the government. Of course, a bonus could also be involved. Yet this money comes from another source and has nothing to do with your regular income.
Aquarius – Eight Of Wands
While you may decide to make plans for an overseas trip this week, Mercury is retrograde, so you may not be ready to commit yet. Instead, you seek information and brainstorm when it would be best to take the trip. Business or pleasure may be involved.
Pisces – Emperor
Your job will require you to serve in a leadership role, as you may be temporarily in charge of a project that you are working on with your colleagues. You might have personal obligations and business duties if you are a business owner. There won’t be a lot of support available to you in this case, and you’ll have to figure out a way to deal with it all without burning out. It won’t be difficult for you because your creativity is excellent.
Mars will enter Aries, its home sign, in a week, and you will find your motivation returning!
