Heart of Spring – Taurus to Gemini. 2015

 

May and June Astrological Forecast

ALL SIGNS

The sun sits in earthy, sensual Taurus as we celebrate the heart of the spring season. This is a terrific time to plant those metaphorical seeds that create a greater sense of security, strength, and personal worth. As the Sun transitions to Gemini on May 21st, the pace of our days picks up and we’re encouraged to connect with others and discover the world around us. What kind of community do you want to be a part of or build? Consider where and how you want to “grow roots”,  be that in a physical community or a community of a common interest. The New Moon in Taurus occurs on May 17th – making this an excellent time to invest in our families, and ourselves. Mercury does it’s second retrograde of the year (oy vey!) from May 18 to June 12 creating confusion and delays. Nonetheless it’s an excellent time to tidy up loose ends and take care of old business. Research, rethinking, reorganizing, or any kind of revamping is favored.

 

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You’re riding a wave fire, my Aries friend! Uranus and Jupiter are in a cosmic trine that greatly benefits you this spring. Your pioneering spirit and your creative nature is ready to dance and play. Artistic endeavors and activities that encourage you to express your talents are hugely favored now. You are ready to take risks and try new things. Use the energy of New Moon occurring on May 17th to revitalize your financial security. As well, give some thought to what you value in this world, what you value about others, and what you value about yourself. It’s possible you will see an increase in your earnings (nice!). Mercury retrograde from May 18 to June 12 might cause snafu’s and confusion, but you’re not about to give up on anything.
