Qualities of the Gemini zodiac play a major part in the month of May. Mercury travels to Gemini during the first week, and then Venus joins along the second week, followed by the sun on the 20th. Gemini energy is dualistic, like two sides of the same coin. Through this, it gives power to observe situations from a logical and rational perspective, rather than becoming overly absorbed in one single emotion. Gemini has problem-solving vibes through out-of-the-box thinking. Those with Gemini prominently in their charts can be depicted as strange or off-beat at times, simply because of their ability to think in multiple ways at once. On the downside, Gemini energy can be mistaken as shallow or superficial, because it never gets too deep — it’s scattered, unfocused, and noncommittal. Nevertheless, Gemini energy stimulates creativity and vast intellect.
Mercury’s transit into the sign of Gemini on the 3rd is an extremely harmonious aspect, meaning that conversations will be positive and breezy. However, beware of gossip, as you are likely to hear a lot of information about others. Don’t be surprised if you learn a lot about someone’s business and then find yourself tempted to spread it along. Rather than indulge in this, you’d be better off channeling this energy towards problem-solving and brainstorming. This is the perfect time to toss around ideas with others about how to fix any problems you’ve been dealing with.
On the 8th, Venus also meets with Gemini. This combination may have a bad reputation, but it can be a good thing in some ways. In romance, it can make your connection feel less intimate and emotional — instead, more rational and light-hearted. On the downside, you may lose passion for your partner or wonder if they have multiple options besides you. However, the positive aspect, is that you can use this energy to help resolve any disputes you’ve been having with your partner. It will be easier to communicate with one another on a practical manner. If your relationship has been heavy and dramatic, things are about to feel much lighter and more playful.
The 13th brings a stroke of great luck with Jupiter entering Pisces. This is a wonderful time for forgiveness and empathy. Your dreams — as in those deep, inner desires — will be of importance and possibly quite close to coming true. Saturn retrogrades Aquarius on the 23rd, causing a schlump — you may become hopeless about the future, or disconnect with several friends, or pull away from your community. The full moon in Sagittarius happens on the 26th, sparking a sense of adventure — you could be traveling somewhere, trying something new, or meeting new people. Finally, on the 29th, Mercury turns retrograde — indicating a possible reconnection with an old friend. Warning signs include the spread of misinformation, rumors, or lying. Be sure to fact-check everything you hear, and avoid making any major decisions from the 29th through the next couple weeks of June. Rather, use this time to reflect upon what the right thing to do is.
Aries, this month places major emphasis on your 3rd house of communication. Expect to have many important conversations by the start of May, especially with a loved one. As an Aries, you have a highly competitive streak and always strive to be #1 — so let yourself lead, when it comes to relaying vital messages. When you open your mouth, all ears will perk up and listen — not only that, but people will genuinely understand what you’re trying to say.
Whether single or coupled up, this will not be a lonely month for you. There is so much social activity going on. If you’ve been single for a while, this is the best time to put yourself out there and shoot your shot. You might not win with everyone, but you are sure to succeed with more than one person. So, lay out your options. As someone who is constantly competing against yourself, it’s about time you let others compete for your love.
Mid-month, your dreams are crying out for your attention as Jupiter travels to your 12th house. Those of you who have been suppressing your inner desires will have a difficult time ignoring them by this point. And why fight it any longer? With this harmonious placement, it’s highly likely for a special dream of yours to finally come true — something you believed was far out of reach for too long. Saturn’s retrograde takes place in your 11th house, indicating the return of old friends. Especially, if it took you a lot of discipline to part ways with this person, you’re going to find yourself seriously tempted to reconnect again.
The full moon on the 26th highlights your 9th house, serving to be a rather intense day for you. Many of you are traveling, exploring, or trying something new around this time. Your sense of adventure will be heightened. Coupled up with Saturn’s retrograde, it’s extremely likely that you’ll end the month doing something super risky and borderline careless. And finally, beware of the infamous Mercury retrograde beginning on the 29th — however, with this planet residing in your 3rd house, this retrograde should not be nearly as much of a struggle as it will be for the other zodiac signs.
Taurus, this month highlights your 2nd house of resources. As a Taurus, you naturally tend to prioritize comfort and luxury — so during May, you’ll be feeling very “in-your-element.” On top of that, Taurus season continues until the 20th, so enjoy this energy while you still can! Conversations you have with others will be based on business strategies, financial gain, and material pleasures.
When it comes to your relationships, you’ll be thinking in terms of “what can I offer to this person, and what can this person offer to me?” If you’re coupled up or looking to woo someone over, you’ll be buying things or cooking for this person, trying to prove how much you value them on the physical level. And vice versa, your lover will feel inspired to purchase you gifts, cook you a meal, or make a craft for you.
Mid-month, blessings from great Jupiter land in your 11th house of friendship and community. You’re going to feel a genuine sense of “belonging” — whether it’s a friend-group or team you’re involved in. If there’s a friend you’ve been neglecting for a while, they are likely to reach out to you and wonder, “where’ve you been!?” A lot of people will be seeking your attention.
Saturn’s retrograde falls in your 10th house, indicating a change of reputation. People are going to view you as undisciplined, for better or worse. Be careful at work, as your boss may accuse you of being lazy or slacking off. But when it comes to friendship, people are going to see you as much more fun and relaxed than you ever used to be.
The full moon on the 26th lights up your 8th house of transformation — indicating a major life-change! Something very intense, yet mysterious, is likely to happen at this time.

And finally, brace yourself for Mercury’s retrograde starting on the 29th, indicating possible electronic failures or the loss of a business deal.
Gemini, the month of May should be a breeze for you, with your 1st house taking the spotlight. Communication with others is effortless and any disputes you’ve been dealing with will be resolved.

It might just feel like the world literally does revolve around you.
Mid-month brings a stroke of luck in your 10th house, representing your reputation. You know when someone walks into a room, everyone turns their heads, and says “wow” — that’s totally you! At work, you could receive some type of bonus or additional paycheck that seemingly comes out of nowhere. Just the slightest effort in your career will bring you a huge amount of abundance. You’ll be thinking hard about your image and how you appear to others, and making an impression is vital.
This harmonious energy peaks by the 20th, marking the first day of Gemini season. A few days later, Saturn is retrograding your 9th house — it’s advised that you avoid travel plans at this time, rather, stay home and enjoy some much-needed couch-lock.

People may often bring up to you how much you have recently changed. Gemini, you have really blossomed lately, and it hasn’t gone unnoticed.
Cancer, the month of May feels like a “wrap-up” for you — the ending of a major phase in your life. Communication with others is nostalgic and retrospective, as you mentally prepare yourself to move forward. Many of you are saying “goodbye” to an old lover or old friends. If you’re coupled up, there will be more depth and intimacy within your relationship.
Mid-month brings a surge of good luck during Jupiter’s transit. This is a harmonious time for traveling or exploring something new. Later, Saturn retrogrades in your 8th house, indicating setbacks and delays when it comes to change.
May 20th marks the start of Gemini season, the final season of the zodiac before Cancer season (your season!) Take these next few weeks to rest up, as your energy is going to decrease, a vital time for re-charging your batteries.
As everyone is feeling more social by the full moon on the 26th, do not hesitate to cancel or deny plans, since you’ll be feeling much more reclusive than others. This full moon lights up your 6th house, drawing attention to your health. This is an excellent time to have a spa day and indulge in self-care. And around the 29th, you may hear from an old friend.
Leo, this month places focus on your 11th house of friendship. You’re super popular right now, as everybody wants a piece of you. As Venus heads towards your 11th house, a previously platonic connection is likely to evolve into something much deeper, much more romantic. The most beneficial way to navigate through your love life right now is by treating your partner, or potential lover, as a buddy you can relate to. Focus on your similarities and common interests with one another, rather than falling into a power-struggle dynamic. In order words, you do not have to compete with someone in order to win their love — instead, meet them on the same level.
Mid-month, lucky Jupiter visits your 8th house. Many of you are likely to “get lucky” in the love department at this time.
