The Sun will enter Gemini late tonight, marking the beginning of Gemini Season. Today’s best for reflecting on the lessons Taurus Season has taught you, especially in terms of partnerships and relationships. Gemini Season will continue to show you how to expand in terms of your most intimate unions, but you’ll learn to do so from a more detached perspective and you’ll value your freedom and independence in the process. So much about the way you love and are loved is evolving now that Uranus, the Planet of Change, is in Taurus. So don’t be surprised if you feel like a completely different person than you did a few weeks ago. Change is good, Scorpio.
Venus enters Cancer today, where it remains until June 13. You’ll find yourself more in tune with other people’s feelings, but make sure that you don’t take them all on as your own. It’s important to distinguish your own emotions from that of those you love. Venus and Uranus align harmoniously today as well, indicating that unexpected yet positive change is on the horizon for your most important relationships. Take a break from trying to control every little thing and let other people surprise you and lead the way for a change.
Venus spends its last full day in Gemini today, while the Moon in Cancer harmoniously connects with Jupiter in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces. Today will have very whimsical and dreamy vibes. It’s less about being super productive in a practical sense and more about letting your imagination run wild as you think of all the possible ways to invite change and adventure into your life. The energy of the New Moon lasts til the 25th, so you have one more week to really tap into this new beginning available for you. Your relationships in particular are what can benefit most from a refresher, so don’t be afraid to do or say something completely out of character and surprise people with your more free-spirited nature. They will like what they see — and they’ll want more of it.
Pay attention to your romantic and sexual urges, Scorpio. Today the Moon and Venus align in Gemini, lighting up your intimacy and merging sector. Your intuition and your dreams may have been trying to show you something about your desires, and the more you give into your sexy, romantic side, the more you’ll attract the type of experiences that fulfill and invigorate you. There’s a reason you’re known as the sex sign — you commit whole-heartedly to your own pleasure and the pleasure of those you love. Today’s one of those days where you should check-in with yourself about what you want from your most intimate connections, and use the open-minded vibes of Gemini to express those desires in an honest and fun-loving way. And if you’re not in an intimate relationship yet, get ready for Venus’ shift into Cancer this weekend — you may get struck by Cupid’s arrow, whether you want to or not.
The Gemini Moon has your mind racing with infinite ideas on what to do or accomplish next, but the best thing you could do is try to quiet those excess thoughts and simply breathe. Do a mid-month check-in with yourself about your journey, and start with being proud of all that you’ve already manifested. If you’re always thinking about what’s next, you lose touch with the present moment, and this is the cause of anxiety and stress. Once you’ve centered and aligned yourself with your “why”, you’ll feel ready to take intentional actions that lead to your fulfillment. But remember that being busy isn’t better, Scorpio. Minimize & simplify and watch how much more ease enters your life.
We’ve arrived at the most transformational day of the month. There’s a New Moon in Taurus taking place at 7:49am EST, and Uranus, Planet of Surprise, enters Taurus about 3.5 hours later. You have entered a new phase of your life, where you’re powerfully focused on improving the way you feel about yourself and the way you treat yourself. By doing so, all of your relationships will improve and bring you greater joy. Take time today to write yourself a love letter, celebrating all your accomplishments and all the challenges you’ve overcome. During this Uranus in Taurus transit, being your own best friend isn’t just nice — it’s necessary for your survival and expansion. Use today’s New Moon and Uranus shift to pump yourself up as you embark on a brand new chapter, which could very well be your best one yet.
Take time today to write down how you’re feeling. Tomorrow, a major New Moon and Uranus shift occurs, starting a brand new chapter in our lives and empowering us to take control of our destinies. But since we’re currently in the height of the dark-of-the-moon period, it’s normal to be feeling moodier or gloomier today. You’ve been processing intense emotions recently, and luckily the second half of May will be much brighter than the first half because of the work you’ve put in. Still, it’s best to keep releasing darker thoughts or feelings that exist within you. Admitting to your pain is essential in overcoming it. Once you’ve found a way to release those emotions, you’ll feel ready to welcome the new opportunities coming your way these next few weeks, months and years. Let it all out, Scorpio.
Mercury, the Planet of Communication, shifts out of fiery Aries and enters grounded Taurus for the next few weeks. This will highlight your relationship sector, Scorpio. Since Uranus is about to make a shift into this sector on Tuesday for the first time in 84 years, it’s time to get honest about what’s working and what’s not when it comes to love and partnerships. There’s no point in lying to yourself or being in denial about it, because the complexities and hardships will be brought to the surface of your life whether you want them to or not. Relationships that have no chance of surviving and that are simply not sustainable will not stand the test of time during the Uranus in Taurus seven-year transit. Those that can be remedied and improved will be tested, but have the potential to survive and even thrive. Use Mercury in Taurus to be more radically truthful about your role in some of the complications in your love and social life, and what you can do to find healthy solutions.
With three days until the New Moon in Taurus, it’s a great day for a physical cleanse of objects that you’ve been hoarding or no longer serve you. No need to get too extreme about it, but gradually start going through drawers, cabinets, and closets and assessing what you’re ready to release and let go of. This physical act will lead to an emotional purging as well, as the objects you release are tied to emotions and past experiences you should be able to loosen your grip on. This process may at first feel daunting, but it’ll ultimately be quite empowering and liberating as you feel yourself getting lighter and happier the more detached you become. Make room for your new beginning by trusting that what’s coming is better than what has come.
The Aries Moon helps boost your overall productivity and drive today, Scorpio. But an alignment between your co-ruler Mars and Saturn, both in Capricorn, reminds you to not rush the process when launching any new initiatives. It’s best to work on projects that you have yet to complete rather than start something fresh. Wait until next week’s New Moon for major launches. Today’s best for getting things off your plate that you don’t want to worry about in the upcoming week, or even this weekend. Overcome the urge to procrastinate and you’ll be ahead of the game.
We are nearing the dark-of-the-moon period — the few days before a New Moon, where everything that no longer serves you comes to the surface of your life, and you are being asked to gradually remove it. That’s the only way to make room for the magic that’s ready to enter your life, Scorpio. You have to face the heaviness, the burdens, the aspects of yourself and others that weigh you down. And you have to consciously decide that you deserve better. You can do better. These next few days won’t be easy to navigate, but they’re the pathway to the transformative New Moon and Uranus shift occurring on May 15th. So think of it as a journey towards the light at the end of the tunnel. You’re almost there, but you must continue to move forward while clearing your path from what’s blocking the light. Step by step.
The Moon in Pisces helps you spend time daydreaming and fantasizing about a new reality you’re ready to create, Scorpio. Your feelings will be full of whimsical thinking, and an alignment between Jupiter in Scorpio and Venus in Gemini will have you analyzing the various options you have both romantically and professionally. The key is to not only choose a certain path because it’s practical — make sure you’re passionate about it and it deeply resonates with who you are and where you see yourself going. Even if all the pieces of the puzzle don’t yet fit together perfectly, by choosing a more personal approach to decision-making you’ll end up happier than if you’re focused on people-pleasing. Ask yourself, “what would I do if there was no worst case scenario?” It’s time to manifest that reality in your life, and it starts by believing that your dreams are possible and within your reach.
