Lunar Notes

May is a month of happenings! Jupiter pops into Pisces signaling a major shift. It will retrograde back into Aquarius in July. This time frame will give you a clue about what to expect when Jupiter enters Pisces for good at year end. A Lunar Eclipse on the 26th and Mercury going retrograde on the 29th end the month with a lot of focused energy.  

Aries: A bit of introspection on your part reveals to you the value of listening to the opinions of others. Jupiter puts you in touch with your spiritual side. Your usual action-oriented self slows down a bit as you learn to smell the roses along the way. You use your energy on self-improvement and understanding. Don’t forget to listen!

Taurus: You recognize your own importance while maintaining an awareness of the value of those around you. Jupiter’s shift brings new acquaintances and ideas for the future into your world. You seek those with shared values. Those new folks in your life open your eyes to the wide world around you. Explore!

Gemini: Some quiet time and inner exploration realigns your thinking.  Jupiter prods and pushes you into the public eye, but you’re not quite ready for that yet. The Eclipse across the Gemini/Sagittarius axis emphasizes relationships and shines the light on what needs to be done to maintain those relationships. To keep or dump?

Cancer: Mars in your sign revs you up for action. Jupiter brings spiritual awakening and a desire to add to your knowledge. This could signal a back-to-school regimen or simply a dive into some weighty tomes. The Eclipse points to ways you can keep yourself healthy. That Mars is going to get you off the couch and into the gym. 

Leo: May’s energies bring forth the “you love me and I will love you” dichotomy. What we give and what we receive in relationships. Jupiter mixes sex and spirituality, while the Eclipse calls for you to express yourself through those things you truly enjoy. After all is said and done, you may find yourself heading in a new direction.  

Virgo: Jupiter’s move into your relationship sector brings improvement and expansion in that area. Personal relationships assist you in widening your perspective. The Eclipse at month end heightens your sense of personal power while rocking your feelings and needs related to basic security.  

Libra: Jupiter in Pisces reminds you that your physical health is closely tied to your mental and spiritual wellbeing. On a more practical level, this placement brings the wide world into your daily routine. The Eclipse focuses energies on siblings, neighbors and information that has the potential to transform your daily life. 

Scorpio: Wisdom and spiritual awakening flow into your being as benevolent Jupiter sends that energy from one water sign to another. Your sense of “knowing” is enhanced. Listen to your intuition for often it “tells you true.” Eclipse energy highlights your personal set of values. You recognize your worthiness.  

Sagittarius: The Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius is up close and personal for you. Your own identity and recognition of that identity becomes very important. You’re motivated and initiate some personal changes. Jupiter at your foundation supports your self-esteem and aids in maintaining a firm base as you make changes. 

Capricorn: Jupiter says think outside the box and beyond the immediate.  Your mind expands and begins to take in far-reaching possibilities. You get creative. The Eclipse opens you to your inner world. You use all of your new-found ideas and feelings to move you along your way. A new path opens up.  

Aquarius: Jupiter puts cash in your pocket. The trick is making sure it stays there. There is a strong temptation to spend freely without a care for tomorrow. The Eclipse pinpoints your friendships. There is a lot of energy around acquaintances and your entire network. It may be time to prune some dead wood to make way for the new.

Pisces: Your ruler, Jupiter, is at home in Pisces and brings the promise of good luck and opportunity coming your way. You are in the right place at the right time. Be on the lookout for those moments. The Eclipse points to a career or change in life’s direction. Could be a juggling act between your public and private life.
