Sort out your priorities, Aries. With rambunctious Mars, aka your red-hot ruling planet, stomping his way through curious Gemini for the majority of the month, your mind is at 100 mph, and you’re likely feeling more scatterbrained than usual. Needless to say, this is an excellent time to tackle those mundane tasks, and talk your way out of things, too! Communication will certainly be a theme for you this month, but make sure you choose your words wisely, Aries. Mars is hot-headed, and in this area of your chart, a major instigator! Anyway, say what you need to say, but don’t go looking for unnecessary debates. On May 4, there will be a lovely new moon in Taurus, igniting your second house of finances, values, and self-worth. Your core values are certainly changing, but what about your self-confidence? With Taurus’ planetary ruler dazzling through your sign, this is a great time for self-care and indulging in the things that bring you pleasure. BTW, Taurus energy is great for budgeting and organizing your finances, so keep that in mind, too. The moon will also form a trine with Saturn, Pluto, and the South Node, via your career sector, so you might get some clarity on your long-term goals in the process. Mercury and Venus will activate this area of your chart shortly after, so themes related to money, beauty, and your personal aesthetic will certainly be top of mind. No need to overthink things anymore, Aries. Your ruling planet Mars shifts into sensitive Cancer on May 15, and your cozy fourth house of home, family, and emotional foundation. In the mood for some housework? This transit will provide you with the energy to focus on your humble abode, whether it be via re-decorating, or spending more time with your loved ones. On the flipside, however, this energy could also make you a bit moody and defensive. Take it easy. The full moon in Scorpio on May 18 will illuminate your enigmatic eighth house of sex, power, transformation, and shared resources. Hint: Think back to the new moon in Scorpio in November 2018. Some of you could come face-to-face with revealing truths, in regard to your career, or a prominent authority figure in your life. Mars is Scorpio’s co-ruler, so themes related to your home, family, and repressed emotions, could come to the surface, too. Not to worry, Aries. Things start to cool down once the sun enters Gemini, and your third house of communication, on May 21. Ready to mingle? This is a great time to collaborate with your local community, and tell your favorite petty joke, of course.
