Monthly Horoscopes for: May 2022
You’ve been waiting 11 years for the gorgeous, generous spirited Jupiter to return to your sign Aries and on May 10th the big one is back! Expect a significant uplift in confidence, radiance and enthusiasm, not to mention a wave of options, adventures and life-enhancing possibilities. Of course, no planet is a magic wand and May has its hot spot around the lunar eclipse of the 16th – where overdoing things is best avoided. Keep your feet on the ground, but your eyes on the horizon.
This month provides plenty of opportunities to cut with the past, re-focus on those people who bring light into your life and regain a sense of adventure and hopefulness. As Mercury will be in retrograde from the 9th you might find concrete plans are in short supply, yet anything that leaves your life should be well and truly looked at from the rear view mirror whilst you navigate ahead. The 16th is the eclipsed Full Moon in Scorpio and you’ll see who’s destined for keeps. The 18th is rather a magical mystery tour. The final few days of May bring your gorgeous ruler Venus into your sign together with an auspicious Mars Jupiter connection which is when the angels whisper in your ear.
If you’re a typical Gemini you can dance around awkward situations and hit on exactly the right moment to make your point.

The period between the eclipsed Full Moon on the 16th and the Mars Neptune union on the 18th could be testing, yet there’s also a lot of enthusiasm which will download before the end of the month.
