As we emerge from a powerful eclipse season, it’s time to take all that Mercury taught us during its retrograde and carry it with us into the new month. May promises to be a month of liberation, bringing a desire to explore and ample chances for personal growth. 

We’ll be having a passionate start to the month, as Venus squares transformational Pluto on May 1. When this energy combines with the desire for stability and comfort in love brought by Taurus season, it will likely motivate us all to strike a balance in our romantic lives. At the end of this month, we’ll enter social Gemini season, and we’ll experience a full moon in energetic Sagittarius on the 23rd. You can expect your social bandwidth to expand during this time, and you’ll be more energized than usual by social interaction. Allow yourself to soak in your own extroversion. We round off the month with Jupiter entering Gemini on May 26, a momentous beginning to a year-long cycle.
