May brings relief from the tension of the past few months. Mars continues to move in retrograde motion until the evening of May 19. You are probably used to his sluggish energy by now. When he turns direct it will take some adjustment to be able to say I want to do this and then go out and be able to do it on the first try. You might pick up projects you laid aside or find that you need to stop putting your energy into a losing venture. Listen to your intuition. Mars has taught you how you need to refine your relationship skills and that it’s important to be aware of your temper. Mars turns direct at 9 degrees of Libra.

There is a short window for action between May 20 and June 7, the day Mercury begins his next retrograde cycle. Use this time well.

May seems to have an unusually large amount of days where the moon is VC all day. Pay attention and adjust your schedule to accommodate this.

Monday, May 19 – Moon in Aquarius. Mars turns direct at 9:31 pm. You’ll feel him stop and get ready to change direction and the energy of the day will reflect this. We are also at the end of Taurus. Today is a day of transition when you want to look ahead and leave any old obstacles behind you. It is easier than usual to see the big picture so look at that, not at the petty stuff.

Tuesday, May 20 – Moon in Aquarius, VC 6:21 pm. The Sun enters Gemini 10:59 pm. Since this is the last day when you have Taurus giving you his common sense advice, take advantage of being able to focus and stay grounded. It’s a good day to shop for big-ticket items, decide on and make calls to schedule home repairs, and pay attention to your body. Everyone will seem stubborn today so don’t push your opinion, just listen.

Wednesday, May 21 – Moon in Pisces. Use your intuition to tell you what to do today. Your feeling sense is strong and will pull in good information. It won’t be as easy to continue in one direction so give yourself a few options and don’t worry if nothing gets finished today. It’s a perfect day to plant berry bushes and other kinds of shrubs.

Thursday, May 22– Moon in Pisces. You can keep on planting and expect good results. This is a very fertile moon. The weekend will not be good for planting so don’t think about waiting to garden.  Be helpful to others who can use some assistance. Go out of your way to do some acts of kindness. Your generosity will be rewarded later on.

Friday, May 23 – Moon VC Pisces, enters Aries 12:01 pm. Dream through the morning and imagine all good things coming to you. Your energy picks up after lunch and you can catch up with what didn’t get done this week. It will be hard to sit still and you need to multitask and move around quickly. Meet with friends tonight and do something that is daring and exciting.

Saturday, May 24 – Moon in Aries. If your garden calls to you, go do some weeding and cultivating. It’s a great day to mow the lawn. Jupiter and Saturn blend their energies and show you that a combination of wishing and working produces good results. Let your inner daredevil out to play. Go do what you want to do after you’ve gotten what you have to do done.

Sunday, May 25 – Moon in Aries, VC from 11:58 am until 5:28 am when it enters Taurus. It’s a lazy Sunday and a good day to be on holiday. Let go of your shoulds and oughts and take a day for yourself. Do your favorite sports. Take the dog for a long walk. Protect your head and hold on to your temper. Don’t let anyone rile you up.
