It’s time to get to work on building your dreams as the season of sustained effort is now upon us and the shakes & shifts of a major planetary change prepares to greet us.
With Taurus Season upon us for most of this month, we are being asked to hunker down and put in the effort to set up firmer foundations that will lead us where we want to go, even if the path ahead may be long (or even uphill). For entrepreneurs, this may bring a greater focus on creating a stronger feeling of long-term sustainability in your business, while for others it may simply mean training your gaze firmly on an extremely worthy prize and being willing to work extra hard in order to earn it.
Some of the primary foundations of our lives will begin to get tested, however, as Uranus moves into Taurus on May 15th, the same day as the New Moon in Taurus. This is the dawning of a new era for Uranus because this feisty planet of chaos, change & surprises only shifts signs once every 8 years, and as it moves into the sign of the bull (where it hasn’t been since 1942), we may experience some interesting instances where the things we thought would always be there support us are now morphing in completely new ways depending on which area of life this will all be going down in your horoscope.
This month will also be capped off with a luminous lunar event that will be hard to ignore! A Full Moon in Sagittarius will rise up on May 29th, bringing to light the need to become more honest and transparent about what we really think and where our true desires lie. This passionate sign also has a tendency to force us into procrastination mode as we ponder on about what magical adventures might be waiting for us just beyond the things that have already come to be in our current scene.
How will all of these cosmic influences be affecting your life & career specifically? Find out more below…

ARIES / ARIES RISING
(March 21 – April 19)
Tell me what you want what you really, really want! This month, the Sun is moving through your 2nd house of Values, Desires & Goal Setting and this is a time of getting clear on what you really want out of life as well as what it’s going to take to get it. The New Moon in Taurus on May 15th is the time to declare to the universe that you are worthy of your desires and decide how far you would like to be with your goals by the Full Moon in Taurus in 6 months.
That same day, Uranus will finally end its 8-year journey through your sign and enter into Taurus as well. You may find that you begin to feel more driven to break out of any constrictions (especially those that may be self-imposed) and actually go out and create a way to earn the things you want from life whether that’s more money, love, security, or some other measure of self-worth. This can feel exhilarating, but try to be cautious and mindful if you’re feeling prone to using unconventional means to get there.
As your ruler Mars leaves Capricorn and enters Aquarius a.k.a. your 11th house of Community & Friendship on May 16th, you’ll probably be feeling more inclined to tap into your friend circle and work together to find ways to help improve the world around you in your own special way. Giving back your time, money, resources, or expertise to help others will feel better than ever! This month will also end with a Full Moon in Sagittarius on the 29th, which will illuminate your zone of Travel, Education & Self-Discovery. You’ll want to use this Full Moon to get really honest with yourself and others about where your true passions lie and this is also a time for coming full circle with studies or adventures you have been undertaking over the past 6 months.
TAURUS / TAURUS RISING
(April 20 – May 20)
It’s clearly all about you this month! Not only is the Sun moving through your sign for most of May, but there is a New Moon in Taurus on the 15th and, that same day, Uranus will also enter into your sign. Suddenly your calm, steady, demeanor may be getting shaken up! This is truly your time to step up as the leader of your own life and become bolder in doing things the way you want to do them regardless of what others may think, but be careful of rocking the boat too hard too fast – or tearing up so-called weeds that are only just beginning to bloom into beautiful flowers – because Uranus will be visiting your sign for the next 8 years and you’ll probably want to be cautious about just how radical you end up becoming over this time span. Even if you feel the time for big changes in your life & career are upon you, slow and steady will still be the best way to get there.
As your ruler Venus enters your 3rd house of Social Networking after May 19th, you may gain a lot of enjoyment from collaborating and sharing your ideas with others. Chances are if you have a strong opinion, there are others in your industry who will also share in that. You just need to know how to find them. Surrounding yourself with more like-minded people who make you feel good and inspire you is a great way to spend the second half of this month.
We’ll end this month with a Full Moon in Sagittarius on the 29th which will be lighting up your 8th house of Business & Finance. Positive money news may be on the way, or at the very least you may be needing to take a closer look at your finances to ensure you are as stable as you would like to be. Information that comes up to the surface during this time will help point you in the direction of a more secure future.
GEMINI / GEMINI RISING
(May 21 – June 20)
How do you really feel right now beneath the surface? This month, the Sun is zooming through your 12th house of Spirituality. You’re normally quite social and talkative, but you may find yourself feeling the need to take some time for yourself to retreat from the world a bit and focus on what really matters. What are your hopes and dreams for the future? How can you take steps to become more in alignment with an important purpose that is bigger than you? These are important questions to find an answer for by the New Moon in Taurus on the 15th.
Starting that same day, Uranus will also move into Taurus, kicking off a major 8-year span when your sense of spirituality will be put into super drive. Don’t be surprised if the world beyond your imagination begins opening up in ways you hadn’t known existed! Your friends may not know what happened to you to make you so much more interested in cutting-edge New Age concepts – or dare I say the “woo”.
Your ruler, Mercury, will also head out of Aries and into Taurus on the 13th, once again turning your mind on to the bigger questions in life. It’s definitely a major month for focusing on yourself and doing some soul searching, but the Full Moon in Sagittarius on the 29th will also be illuminating your 7th house of Relationships. Any issues with your relationships or within close partnerships at work may come up to the surface to be cleared. Luckily, you’ve been priming yourself all month to focus on the bigger picture behind your higher purpose so you can approach these earthly matters from more enlightened perspective.
CANCER / CANCER RISING
(June 21 – July 22)
It’s time to widen your net! This month, the Sun is moving through your 11th house of Community & Friendship, helping you spend more time focusing on your friend circle and finding ways to be of service to the people you most want to help. Right now, showing others that you’ve got your back is high on the agenda and the New Moon in Taurus on the 15th is the perfect time to envision how you would like to continue to expand your reach to help more people with your time, resources, skills, and talents well into the future.
Uranus will also be moving into Taurus on the 15th which kicks off an 8-year span where you may find yourself being drawn to more unique characters or taking up radical causes that are important to you to help improve the world around you. You have so many special skills and talents to offer others and this is a time when you will definitely be more apt to explore ways to use them to make a bigger difference than ever before.
Lucky for you, Venus will be heading into your sign on the 19th, and the next 3.5 weeks will be especially lovely for attracting more blessings your way in the form of love, money, admiration or other things that make life feel sweeter. Enjoy, but be careful of overindulging. The Full Moon in Sagittarius on the 29th will shine a light on how well you are taking care of yourself and keeping your work, life, and health in careful balance as it falls in your zone of Daily Work & Wellness.
LEO / LEO RISING
(July 23 – August 22)
Get ready to shine even brighter, Leo! This month, the Sun is supercharging your 10th house of Career. This is a big time of year for you to be boosting up your work efforts and allowing your natural talents and abilities to be seen by more people. The New Moon in Taurus on the 15th is the beginning of a beautiful cycle where you will find yourself reaching new career heights over the next 6 months, but first, you will need to spend some time envisioning what that will look like.
Uranus also enters your Career Zone on the 15th where it will be hanging out for the next 8 years. Surprises, shifts, and changes may be experienced in the way you do business or make your money and it will be best to take your time even if you feel the strong creative urge to head in a completely new direction. Ultimately, it’s good to stay open-minded about the possibilities, but try not to burn any bridges along the way.
With the Full Moon in Sagittarius landing in your Creativity Sector on the 29th, an exciting creative project may finally be coming full circle. This will be a time that will be best for focusing on how well you’ve been able to take your creative ideas out of your head and into the world as well as noticing what more you’d like to create in the future. It’s also a great Full Moon for letting loose and having fun in your element as it falls in your fellow fire sign!
VIRGO / VIRGO RISING
(August 23 – September 22)
What else is waiting for you around the next bend? This month, the Sun is gallivanting through your 9th house of Exploration, Education & Self-Discovery, helping you widen your horizons to what is possible for you. You may feel like leaving your comfort zone to learn something new or maybe even feel the need to shake things up in your surroundings to keep your life or work from getting boring or stale. The New Moon in Taurus on the 15th will be a great time to visualize your dream reality and indulge in imagining how would you like to add more magic to your life over the next 6 months.
That same day, Uranus will also enter into Taurus where it will be shaking things up in your Travel & Learning zone for the next 8 years. You may begin finding yourself becoming drawn to unusual new subjects or craving adventures to faraway lands. Just don’t jump so far off into the deep end that you forget to enjoy all of the magic that already exists in your life as it is now!
A Full Moon in Sagittarius will rise in the night sky in your 4th house of Home, Family & Long-term Security on the 29th. Taking time to turn your focus away from work and back on to the things that make your life off-the-clock more comfortable is very much suggested because worries or fears around instability in your personal life may come up to the surface, but you may also find that this is a positive time for appreciating what you’ve got and celebrating how far you have come in this area even just since the end of last year.
LIBRA / LIBRA RISING
(September 23 – October 22)
How’s your work really been working out, Libra? This month, the Sun is moving through your 8th house of Business & Finance. This is a time for taking a closer look at how you earn your money and how you manage it behind the scenes once it’s yours. If you’ve been overspending or not saving enough, you may want to focus in on how you can better invest in your future. The New Moon in Taurus on the 15th will be ideal for checking back in with your strategies to ensure they truly are leading you towards the success you want to bring into your life in the next 6 months.
Uranus will also be moving into Taurus on the 15th, and as it crosses over, this may bring sudden surprises to your work or the way you do business. The next 8 years will see you moving in new directions and embracing new methods for earning money so be prepared to have things shaken up in this area more than usual. Luckily, your ruler Venus will be heading into your Career Zone on the 19th, helping you attract wonderful opportunities your way that will allow you to make a bigger impact by doing more of the things you love.
At the end of the month, a Full Moon in Sagittarius will shine overhead your 3rd house of Social Networking. Wonderful collaborations could come up to the surface to be celebrated while you may also be thinking about the type of people you would like to be surrounding yourself with more. Make a point to pay attention to what comes up for you around the 29th because any issues that crop up could be helping you learn a valuable lesson!
SCORPIO / SCORPIO RISING
(October 23 – November 21)
Who do you know you can put your trust in, Scorpio? This month, the Sun is shining a bright light on your close relationships with others. You may be thinking about what you are really needing and craving in a supportive partnership either in romance or in work and dealing with any issues that are keeping this from coming true. The New Moon in Taurus on the 15th is the perfect time to cast a wish into the universe for the ways you would like to continue to upgrade your relationships over the next 6 months.
With Uranus moving into Taurus on that same day, you may find that relationship issues will begin to get especially crazy over the next 8 years. Be cautious around choosing the wrong people to put time and effort into supporting if the initial signs are not good because this is a time when many lessons will be learned around how you relate to those who are closest to you, many of which can be pleasantly avoided if you remain true to you.
A Full Moon in Sagittarius will rise up on the 29th in your 2nd house of Values, Desires & Goal Setting. After last month’s Full Moon in your sign, it may have become more clear to you who you really are and how you would like to be seen. This month’s Full Moon provides the next piece of the puzzle: what do you really want? It will call to mind the areas of your life where you are not really receiving what you want – whether that’s love, money, admiration or a sense of financial security – so you can update your methods for getting it.
SAGITTARIUS / SAGITTARIUS RISING
(November 22 – December 21)
Slow your roll, Sagittarius! This month, the Sun is simmering along in your zone of Daily Work & Wellness. If you’ve found yourself becoming overly busy after a month filled with creating, May is the time to catch your balance and reprioritize the tasks that make you feel good and help you work towards what really matters. After a few weeks of experimenting with new habits and routines, the New Moon in Taurus on the 15th will be the perfect time to get clear on any health or organizational goals you would like to have fully accomplished in the next 6 months.
With Uranus also moving into Taurus that same day, you may find yourself becoming a lot more devoted to living life in balance more often or even becoming attracted to unconventional ways of setting up your workflow, organizing your schedule, or even working out. Meanwhile, your ruler, Jupiter, will be making a lovely angle with Neptune around the 25th that may see some of your most meaningful long-term dreams becoming real. This would be an excellent day for a launch or at least to look forward to coming up with amazing ideas!
The Full Moon on the 29th will be falling in your sign, which means it’s your turn to reach a culmination point in how you are expressing yourself out in the world. Who are you really, who do you want to be, and who are you no longer? All of these questions about your true identity may be asked and then answered. Don’t be afraid to dive deep so you can find the clarity and confidence you need.

(December 22 – January 19)

You may even find yourself deepening your connection to your spiritual practice and the greater vision to back up the reasons why you do all that you do.
AQUARIUS / AQUARIUS RISING
(January 20 – February 18)
Time to get cozy! This month, the Sun is crossing through your 4th house of Home, Family & Long-term Security. You may feel like nesting, upgrading your home, or seeking to spend more time with the people you hold near and dear. For the New Moon in Taurus, take some time to check in with your long-term goals for comfort and financial security and ensure you are heading where you want to go.
The headlining event this month, however, will happen when your ruler Uranus makes its way into Taurus, too. Over the last 7-8 years, you may have welcomed an interesting bunch of new friends and co-collaborators into your work or life as Uranus moved through your Social Networking sector. But now, Uranus begins shaking up your Home & Family zone which may give you a craving for more creative freedom when it comes to how or where you live. This influence will be long-lasting, but the initial shift begins on the 15th.
A Full Moon in Sagittarius will illuminate the sky in your 11th house of Community & Friendship on the 29th, bringing into view your connections with others and making you feel the urge to become more helpful and give back more of your time, money, or expertise to those who need it. Aquarians who run a business may find their online community to be expanding, too!

Get out there and do your thing, Pisces! This month, the Sun is shimmering in your Social Networking sector, helping you make new connections to share your thoughts and ideas with the people who have already been hanging around your neighborhood or in your circle of online contacts. Think writing projects, podcasting, speaking, or trying out new networking events. Perhaps this will even lead you to spark up a conversation with a like-minded someone about an exciting collaboration. The New Moon in Taurus on the 15th will be the time to check in with your goals and set a fresh round of intentions for how you would like to expand your influence and reach over the next 6 months.
The best day of May seems to be the 25th when your co-rulers Neptune and Jupiter make a lovely rare angle with one another in the sky. This would be a great day to launch a dream project or work on bringing a fabulous vision to fruition. Just be sure that as you do, you are rooting yourself in reality and not getting completely lost in some out-there fantasy!
The Full Moon on the 29th will be landing in Sagittarius and your 10th house of Career.

There will always be another level to reach, so be sure to take some time to reflect on how amazing you are for getting as far as you have.
