Take Advantage of Goodwill!
The warrior planet, Mars, forms a quincunx aspect to unpredictable Uranus on May 7, when unexpected events force you to change your course. Then Mercury, the communication planet, enters earthy Taurus on May 8, a transit that helps slow your mind enough to allow you to make sensible plans. Finally, the Taurus Sun‘s conjunction to optimistic Jupiter on May 13 helps make your world more secure and comfortable. Be sure to take advantage of any goodwill that comes your way!
May 7: Mars quincunxes Uranus
In March, when retrograde Mars backed into this quincunx aspect with unpredictable Uranus, you were asked to reconsider your plans; hopefully you made the necessary adjustments! Now it’s time to tweak your plans again based on everything you’ve leaned over the past two months. Mars in Virgo wants you to work hard, while Uranus in Aries wants that hard work placed within the context of your life plan. And if Uranus in Aries has its way, that plan will include a few new bold ideas!
May 8: Mercury enters Taurus
Luckily, nothing needs to be decided quickly. Pause, take a deep breath and allow communicative Mercury in practical Taurus to offer you an opportunity to figure out what to do. Take your time and be deliberate in your thinking and planning. With all the changes going on in your life, this transit brings stable, sensible energy. Make the most of it!
May 13: The Sun conjuncts Jupiter
Once a year, the Sun catches up to Jupiter. In 2012, this fortunate meeting occurs in Taurus, one of the zodiac’s most practical signs, and the one most concerned with money. Jupiter expands the energy of any sign it occupies; at the same time, it brings angels and other helpers. As your financial and material outlook improves, make conservative decisions that will affect your long-term future. Conditions are bound to become unpredictable in the weeks and months ahead, so if you can ground and balance yourself now, you’ll be in a good position for the flurry of changes to come!
