Cheers to another trip around the sun, Taurus! The world will never get enough of your ultra-lavish ways, and sparkling rosé. You are the goddess Venus in the flesh, and it’s your turn to turn up. There will be a new moon in your sign on May 4, and you only get one new moon a year, so feel free to indulge in this magical new beginning. This lunation is gifting you with enough security, and self-confidence, to do what you do best: Manifest. So, set your intentions, and place your feet firmly on the ground where they belong. A sweet trine to Saturn, Pluto, and the South Node, via your expansive ninth house of education, higher learning, and personal philosophy, can help you retrace your steps, in order to see how much you’ve achieved thus far. Although, aside from your triumphs, and general perspective on life, this cluster of energies is here to remind you that the beauty you seek, lives within the journey itself, so make sure you stay present. In the words of fellow Sagittarius (aka your ninth house) Miley Cyrus, it ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side, it’s the climb. Mercury enters your sign on May 6, but with electric Uranus in the picture, I highly suggest you double and triple check your means of transportation, whether it be uber or your own vehicle. See, curious Mercury rules transportation, and Uranus is notorious for unexpected surprises, so make sure your tire pressure, and general maintenance, is up to par. Besides, it doesn’t hurt to play it safe. With your sultry ruling planet Venus in Aries, and your 12th house of secrets, for the majority of the month, you’re likely feeling a bit more introverted in the love department, but not for long. On May 15, the cosmic covergirl will pirouette her way into your sign, and you will be as charming as ever. Truth is, Venus thrives when in your sign, and so will you. That same day, go-getter Mars slides into sensitive Cancer, and your chatty third house of communication and local community. Something you need to get off your chest? Not that you have any issue speaking your mind, but this transit will provide you with some much-needed confidence, so say what you need to say, Taurus. Although, make sure you use your words wisely. Mars is hot-headed, and in Cancer, an emotional wreck. Moreover, the full moon in Scorpio on May 18 will ignite your seventh house of relationships and committed partnerships. Hint: Think back to the new moon in Scorpio in November 2018. What’s evolved in regard to your long-distance relationships, and business ventures? Make sure you pay attention, Taurus. Secrets will be revealed. The sun enters savvy Gemini, and your second house of values, income, and self-worth, on May 21. BTW, you know this area of your chart like the back of your hand, considering it’s also your house of rulership, so make yourself comfortable, in every sense of the word. Looking to make some extra cash? Mercury will join this area of your chart shortly after, and your mind will be buzzing with ideas. In the meantime, make those money moves, Taurus babe.
