Retrograde and eclipse season is upon us, Scorpios. Welcome to May 2021. The month where we may experience one wake-up call after another when it comes to our personal journeys and where we stand. During the first three weeks of the month, the Sun in Taurus continues to activate Scorpio’s sector of partnership and marriage. As much as you may want to focus on getting your professional life in order, a part of you may have to take a breather from all that and check in with your most intimate relationships, or the ones that once were.
Pluto, one of Scorpio’s planetary rulers, spends its first full month retrograde in Capricorn, asking us to look back at the past in a way that helps us grow from previous experiences rather than get caught up in the same old patterns. This month, many Scorpios will realize that they may have held on to certain people or ways of relating to others because it’s what they’ve been used to, but since we’re now nearing eclipse and retrograde season, many of us will feel frustrated by toxic patterns. We will feel like it’s time to usher in a new era, and that means moving differently, thinking differently and acting differently.
Mercury’s shift into Gemini on May 3rd, in preparation for the retrograde that will happen at the end of the month, will inspire Scorpios to explore more than one way of experiencing our current reality. Perhaps you’ll start thinking of living in more than one country, city, or continent this month, or you’ll at least start planning your next vacation to a place where you can let yourself roam freely and feel brand new. The spirit of rebirth is still coursing strong, and the Taurus New Moon on May 11th is the ideal time to get clear on what habits you may have to integrate in your life in order to truly succeed. Discipline will take you far this month, Scorpio, but you’ll also find yourself more easily distracted…
