May is a glorious month!

Two golden lunations open up space for the new and liberating possibilities seeded last month to unfold and upgrade our experience on every level.

And with Jupiter entering Gemini by the 23rd, the runway is clear… This is a first class flight to the future!

The Sabian Symbols for this month tell a story of a surge of new potentials borne through crisis, the repudiation of unbearable social structures, and seeing theideals we hold slowly hypnotise us into the creation of our future. By the end of the month, the penny drops - we see the consummation of long-term efforts as we see the bigger picture and a whole new world is revealed before our eyes.

Watch out for a rare and beautiful alignment between Venus, Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune building up all month long and culminating 18th-23rd, which should make May a month to remember!

As these articles keep getting longer, I thought you might like to navigate using a table of...


Jump straight to your May Horoscope!





May 1st onwards, Mars in Aries, Venus in Taurus: Love and Desire

May promises love, pleasure and indulgence aplenty, as well as dynamism, confidence and brave initiatives! Both Venus and Mars are in their signs of rulership as May enters - Venus in Taurus (April 30th - May 23rd) and Mars in Aries (April 29th - June 9th). Venus is everything that makes us beautiful, desirable and loveable, as well as our own ability to appreciate life. Mars is our muscle, our drive to excellence, and our inner warrior without which we are limp. Both are strong now giving us a greater zest for life!

May 2nd onwards, Pluto Retrograde: Surviving in a New Reality

May begins amid great transformative intensity: Pluto stations retrograde on May 2nd, square Venus (May 1st) and sextile Mars (May 3rd). 

With Pluto in Aquarius since the start of the year we’ve entered an era of social revolution, sci-fi disclosures and the deep awakening of human consciousness, as well as an unbelievable technological transformation via AI and the ruthless advancement of the transhumanist agenda. The penny began to drop last year (when Pluto first briefly entered Aquarius) and now this new reality is becoming undeniable. As Pluto stations retrograde on May 2nd, we’ve taken in as much as we can handle. It’s time to stop, catch our breath and give our survival-brain time to adapt.

May 2nd could be a breathless moment, when we pause and begin to go back over old ground so we can pick up the pieces of ourselves that are still stranded in the old reality framework. This process will take all summer, with maximum intensity this autumn (September-November), as Pluto briefly backtracks into Capricorn to demolish what's left of the old. By 2025, we will bring all of ourselves online.

Pluto has been barely moving at the 3rd degree of Aquarius since April 12th inducing a process of self realisation by repudiating the collective status that's now become unbearable. This process will continue until May 23rd as Pluto drills down on that same degree, with the Sabian Symbol giving us the image of “a deserter from the navy” (Dane Rudhyar, An Astrological Mandala NY: Vintage Books 1974, p.250).

We are currently going through a major process of desocialisation, disengaging from a world that no longer has any bearing on our human concerns, and preparing for a societal rebirth.

Venus and Mars contact Pluto during this subversive moment, setting off alarm bells. Venus-Pluto on May 1st could bring stark financial realities and relationship struggles to the fore, highlighting power-dynamics and questions of survival. Mars-Pluto on the 3rd can provide opportunities for decisive and powerful action. A no-nonsense start to May.

May 3rd onwards, Neptune in Pisces Critical Degree: Beware of Surreality Bubbles

May the 3rd is also when Neptune enters the final and critical degree of Pisces (the zodiac sign hosting Neptune since 2012), to last til September. Neptune is a dissolving force and Pisces the sign of dissolution - a double symbolism.

We are now entering the final dissolution phase of our old reality, even losing our grip on what is real and what is mere illusion. This is something that’s been progressively happening for years and is now reaching its critical stage.

This month we are entering the surreal! The only way to fare well in it is to realise that we live in a lucid dream, a simulation, a virtual reality game where our senses are totally entranced. The best way to navigate this hall of mirrors is by using our intuition.

Neptune will stay in the final degree of Pisces until September 2nd applying its dissolving fluid to the world and our grasp of it, and giving us a taster of the kinds of skills we need to develop to move confidently into the future.

The Sabian Symbol for this very last degree is: “a majestic rock formation resembling a face is idealized by a boy who takes it as his ideal of greatness, and as he grows up, begins to look like it.” (Dane Rudhyar, An Astrological Mandala NY: Vintage Books 1974, p.288). This sums up reality-formation pretty well and is awakening us into the archetypal realm that precedes and moulds our experience.

May 6th onwards, Pluto semisquare Saturn: The Struggle for Maturity

May 6th brings another notable moment: the first hard aspect between Saturn and Pluto since the historic Saturn-Pluto conjunction in 2020. Those planets are concerned with two things only: power and control. The top-down totalitarian seeds that were planted at their conjunction at the start of the pandemic - with lockdowns, mandates and other top down directives - are now beginning to push through the soil. We could see further authoritarian measures struggle to unfold now, and be thwarted, resulting in various stalemates, all the way until January 2025.

On the plus side, the events of 2020 also represent a new phase of humanity coming of age.

We are maturing as a species, growing up and learning that we need to take responsibility for our lives and our world, and not just leave it to the authorities, like children.

With the growing semi-square between Saturn and Pluto, this year could see each of us strive to take greater responsibility in our lives, building on the maturation seeds that were planted for each of us personally in 2020. This influence is kicking in this May and will last all of 2024, peaking once more on 26 September and 27 January 2025.


May 7th-8th Taurus New Moon: Things are Looking Bullish!

And so we arrive at this month’s delicious Taurus New Moon at 18:02 degrees at 04:21 BST (03:21UT). The eclipses in Taurus and Scorpio are now well and truly over. Time to move to greener pastures!

Time for us all to begin to feel more liberated in some rather battered areas of our lives and to begin looking at all the new choices that are becoming available to us now that the pressure is starting to lift.

This Taurus New Moon is an absolutely lovely lunation with astrology’s dignitaries - Venus and Jupiter - waiting in Taurus to welcome the Sun and Moon and shower them with blessings! Exciting, idealistic and progressive Uranus is also conjunct the lot, bringing great excitement! Throw a party! Here we have a fantastic new beginning for Taurus and for wherever we all have Taurus in our chart.

This Taurus New Moon is about living life from a new vantage point, about changing our point of attraction and elevating our energy to a whole new beautiful level of abundance, love and joy. It opens the doors wide for benefits and boons that are sure to surprise and delight us!

It’s time to innovate, to try something new, to take a risk. As the wonderful Jupiter-Uranus conjunction that took place last month, on April 20th-21st is now ignited, fostered and energised, new initiatives are given fertile fields in which to grow and flourish!

Realist Saturn sextiles the Sun (7th), Venus (13th) and the Taurus New Moon, ensuring longevity, stability and a chance to utilise these blessings to build something in the world. The time has come to get practical and plan for the future; to start implementing all that we have learned, experiment with new principles and tap into new resources.

The Sabian Symbol for this New Moon is “a new continent rising out of the ocean”. (Dane Rudhyar, An Astrological Mandala NY: Vintage Books 1974, p.82). Here we see the surge of new potentials following a crisis, brand new territory arising out of the unified field, virgin space for the spontaneous birth of something new! Taurus is a deeply receptive sign, much like the earth that receives the seed. Now that the mind has already taken that leap towards a new perspective, the conditions for new growth are ideal. This same degree of Taurus was last activated in August 2022 - any memories? The earth is literally shifting and it’s time we begin growing alongside it.

Use this wonderful New Moon to allow new and beneficial energies to take hold in your life!

May 6th-7th, Mercury conjunct Chiron: I've Said My Piece...

Mercury conjuncts the asteroid Chiron at the same time, in the early hours of May 7th, for the third and final time this year, finishing a long journey of multiple conjunctions that began in March. This is the aspect that has been responsible for all the hurt and anger rising to the surface this year, voicing injuries clamouring to be heard. The penny drops now. The stories gain traction. More news surface. Something clicks into place to allow us to put together the pieces of the puzzle and understand our next steps.

This is the aspect that gives a voice to all that has been exiled, silenced and scapegoated. Speak up!

Time to remove fingers from eyes and ears, to look, listen and acknowledge what's being said, however ugly…

May 13th, Sun conjunct Uranus, Venus sextile Saturn, Mercury exits Shadow: Free At Last!

On May 13th, Venus sextiles Saturn, the Sun conjuncts Uranus and Mercury exits his retrograde shadow. Time to move on.

As Venus sextiles Saturn on the 13th, the fresh energies brought in by this loveliest of New Moons gain yet more traction. This is a good time to consolidate relationships, secure finances and make all kinds of long term investments.

Also by the 13th, Mercury finally exits his retrograde shadow (the bit of the zodiac he was bogged down in since March) and we can finally begin to think fresh thoughts! Last month saw Mercury go retrograde amid a total solar eclipse that was a game-changer in many ways, galvanising us all to see life in a new light. We are now ready to begin moving ahead with the ideas borne out of that period.

Add the Sun-Uranus conjunction and May 13th is a really exciting moment! If you are looking for liberation from old problems, take no prisoners now. Time to break with the past and plant the seeds of change. This could be an unpredictable day, so plan lightly and try not to micromanage… Let the universe surprise you.

May 15th, Mercury enters Taurus: Pragmatic Talk

Come May 15th, Mercury enters Taurus, now totally free of his retrograde period, and he soon bumps up against Pluto in Aquarius by square on the 17th. Talks and conversations now turn to money and resources, to all kinds of practical matters, as well as to the pleasures of this world. Pluto brings urgency and intensity to all such conversations and to our speech and thought May 15th-17th, especially about financial matters. All the while, he is indelibly impressing upon us how important it is to be fully present in each moment, to delight in our senses and powerfully connect with our world.

With Mercury in Taurus until June 3rd, conversations can be literal, sensual, pragmatic and pleasurable in the second half of May, as we turn our attention to the practical and measurable aspects of our lives.

May 18th: Venus conjunct Uranus, Sun conjunct Jupiter: Jackpot!

Circle May 18th in your calendar, for this is a most exciting day: Venus conjuncts Uranus and the Sun conjuncts Jupiter all in one jackpot of a package - a cosmic bonanza! This combo involves both astrology’s goodies, the so-called ‘Benefics’, Venus and Jupiter, as well as the largest bodies in our solar system, Jupiter and the Sun itself. Plus we have oddball Uranus, the only planet that spins on its side, reminding us that life is full of surprises!

This is a lucky, if unpredictable, moment that plants the seeds for growth, luck and abundance that will deliver a bountiful harvest!

Whatever happens on the day, take a moment to envision the life you want, engaging all your senses. Use this to imprint in your consciousness a pattern of wellbeing and prosperity - and to remind yourself that anything is possible!

There is a deep spiritual feel to all this too, as the Sun and Jupiter sextile to Neptune (the Sun on the 19th, Jupiter on the 23rd), bringing inspirational, uplifting and creative opportunities in the pursuit of a dream.


May 20th, Mars conjuncts North Node: The Warrior Maverick

By May 19th-20th, we begin heading to this month's Full Moon and the energy begins to shift.  In the early hours of May 20th, Mars in Aries conjuncts the North Node, igniting our warrior spirit. This could be an important moment for global conflicts. As Mars moves past the North Node and toward Chiron over the next ten days, opening portals for the healing of old and festering resentments.

Time to stand up, take charge, and confront a situation in our lives that we simply did not have the courage to face before.

Any anger that is now rising to the surface is good and proper and moves us forward, consciously and with full awareness of our actions so we can guide it constructively. Whatever happens on the 20th, the North Node is always positive: it is where we need to go relative to where we are, if we are to grow, move forward and pull ourselves out of the mire. The time for cowardice and indecision is at an end. Time to be brave and proactive.

May 20th, Sun enters Gemini: There’s Something In The Air…

On May 20th the Sun enters Gemini - happy birthday Gemini! We’re now entering the late phases of spring in the northern hemisphere and heading toward summer. This is when the world around us truly comes alive. Can you blame Gemini for wanting to sample every flower? To enjoy life in all its multiplicity that, even as we speak, is coming to bloom?

Gemini season (20 May-20 June) is a playful time of socialising, networking and stepping out and about, and for all kinds of exchanges, communication, commotion, commerce, learning, sampling and experimentation. The Sun trines Pluto by May 22nd, imprinting upon us that we are entering an era of transformation through technology, above and beyond what we could ever have imagined.

May 23rd, Sagittarius Full Moon: As Good As it Gets

The Taurus New Moon was already pretty special. Can it get any better? Yes it can - if a little manic and OTT! This month’s Sagittarius Full Moon is the bee’s knees, with its ruler, Jupiter, conjunct Venus in her ruling sign, Taurus, both conjunct the Sun in early Gemini, and all three sextile Neptune in his ruling sign, Pisces. With Venus, Jupiter and Neptune in the very final and critical degrees of their signs, this is a last minute extravaganza!

It could be one great last wickedness.... A moment of arrogant avarice and pride... Or a great big moment of gratitude and celebration, giving thanks and reconnecting us with our earthly blessings and divine nature.

Something long overdue is now coming to pass. What’s more, the Sun and Moon harmonise with Pluto perfectly, as do Venus, Neptune and Jupiter, making this a deeply empowering, subversive and transformative Full Moon.

This Full Moon takes place on the 23rd at 14:53 BST (13:53UT) at 02:55 Sagittarius, a day after the Sun trines Pluto on the 22nd, and a mere eight hours before Jupiter exactly sextiles Neptune. On the same day, Venus conjuncts Jupiter and sextiles Neptune, augmenting the energies, right before she enters Gemini, also on the 23rd. With so much commotion, this lunation is like a busy station - with meetings, changes and transitions happening back to back all in the space of 46 hours!

This is a highly mutable, transitory moment, impressing upon us that nothing lasts forever and that life ever moves onwards.

It could nonetheless prove to have lasting, karmic reprecussions. Flow with the energies, give thanks, and be nimble, ready to let go of the past and step into whatever doors are opened!

The Sabian Symbol for this Full Moon is “two men playing chess”. (Dane Rudhyar, An Astrological Mandala NY: Vintage Books 1974, p.211) Perhaps this lunation will reveal where we are on that cosmic chessboard, as rapid developments now move the pieces around in a blur, revealing human conflict on this earth as a ritualised interplay between light and dark. Sagittarius is great for seeing the bigger picture, bringing hope and optimism! This could be just what we need to transcend immediate concerns and tap into a quiet inner strength that can keep us going for the long haul.

May 23rd, Jupiter Sextile Neptune: The First Buds of Spiritual Spring

Intimately bound with the May Full Moon is a beautiful aspect of wisdom:

Jupiter sextiles Neptune, with both planets in the last critical degree of their respective signs. There is an urgent spiritual lesson here, a spiritual boon ripe for the reaping.

Critical degrees tend to bring a sense of urgency and crisis - as if the needle is stuck, trying to learn a karmic lesson over and over, in what seems like a last chance to master the energies. We could see a last ditch attempt here - perhaps a moment of madness - or equally a chance to understand the interplay between our ideals and material resources.

Jupiter and Neptune were conjoined as the war in Ukraine started, making us all acutely aware of the spiritual lessons that humanity has yet to learn. Their sextile now reveals the great yearning toward growth and unity that was seeded back then, as it is starting to reach the surface.

This is an opportunity for wisdom, inspiration and compassion that may bring a resolution to matters that may have felt stuck throughout 2023 when Jupiter and Neptune were not on such good terms.

May 23rd, Venus enters Gemini: Sample Every Flower

Also on May 23rd, Venus enters Gemini where she’ll stay until June 17th, making for a playful, flirty and sociable period. Time to take pleasure in sampling every flower! To enjoy the fun of exchanging views and goods in an open, light and playful manner. For Venus is paving the way for Jupiter’s entry in Gemini and - oh boy - are we in for an amazing learning journey: incoming news, information and communications are sure to blow our minds and change our perspectives!

The first planet Venus meets as she enters Gemini is Pluto, by trine on May 25th, impressing upon us that being more playful, curious and open-minded is no longer just an option. It is intricately linked to our survival.

May 25th-26th Jupiter in Gemini: Engage Superdrive!

As the 25th gives way to the 26th, around midnight (23:14 GMT), Jupiter enters Gemini. Engage superdrive, ready for take off!  You’ll need that superdrive to keep up with the pace of events - for its vast storage capacity, lighting fast information processor, or faster than light travel. AI, biotechnologies and other comms and transport advances that may have been a mere glint in a tech giant’s eye are now fast becoming a reality. Jupiter in Gemini is fabulous for independent journalism and independent media platforms.

There is no stopping the appetite for fresh, uncensored, live news now, for direct dialogue and communication, and for information and opinion pieces flowing freely to get debate going. Jupiter in Gemini is a time to be open, curious, eager to learn and explore various viewpoints. It’s a time to engage directly with information and one another, to enter dialogue and exchange.

Boons to humanity will come through communications, travel, learning, sharing information and doing research, through dialogue, commerce and exchange, through thinking, speaking, writing and connecting freely, through striving to be objective and open with each other, with discernment but without judgment or intellectual attachment. Jupiter will stay in Gemini until 9 June 2025.

May 29th-31st  Mars conjuncts Chiron, Mercury conjuncts Uranus: New Solutions!

May is coming to an end and what a rollercoaster! Wherever we started, our world now sure looks different... To make sure the major breakthroughs and developments of the past couple of months stick, May hammers a couple of points home.

On May 29th Mars in Aries reaches conjunction with asteroid Chiron, the one responsible for the many key realisations of the past few months, activating the crucial message of April’s Total Solar Eclipse and Mercury retrograde.

The cosmos has delivered some incredible shocks by this point - difficult lessons as well as boons for the awakening of our consciousness. It’s down to us to now implement these new understandings and put them to action.

This Mars-Chiron conjunction completes the ten-day initiative-awakening-process for brave and pioneering action instigated by the Mars-North Node conjunction of May 20th. We cannot stick our head in the sand any longer, for we have all the tools we need to take charge in a crucial area of our lives.

Mars-Chiron is also an expert at recognising the misuse of aggression, bringing hurt and anger to the surface in a way that can no longer be ignored. Here we have a champion for all who are hurt and vilified, giving mavericks and outsiders a fighting chance.

At the same time, Mercury sextiles Saturn (28th) and conjuncts Uranus (31st) re-activating this month’s New Moon energies. This could be a time for innovative solutions that are nonetheless practical and applicable. This is a good day for brainstorming.

Conversations now can inspire all sorts of new ideas that can get us out of a sticky wicket! Whatever had seemed stuck a minute ago can now get moving.

As we head into June, freshly minted Jupiter in Gemini trines baby Pluto in Aquarius and the doors of our minds are blown wide. We are well into a “scorched earth” technological revolution era, from which there is no turning back, impacting us at a deep cellular level and affecting both own bodies and minds. This is the time to start asking questions, find out everything we can and become fast learners.

May 2024 Zodiac Sign Horoscopes: Better Late Than Never!

It's already way past the Taurus New Moon as a write this but this is a bit of a last minute month and, as they say, better late than never! So here is what to look out for this month, based on your particular slice of the pie in the sky....

"Horoscope" literally means "hour-watcher" and since we are not omnipresent, we can each only watch things unfold from a particular vantage point in space and time.... The zodiac wheel formalises this relationship by cutting up the vast sky into twelve symbolic spacetime slices, providing a model from which we can get our bearings...

Check out your Sun Sign (the starry flame in your heart), your Ascendant or Rising Sign (the way your own burning star is pinned to the four corners of this world), and your Moon Sign (the unthinking animal within) for info as to where May's stars go 'pop' for you...!

A legal matter may also have your attention. The feeling is one of freedom. You are finally free to spread your wings and enjoy a change of scenery. And that gives you yet another further boost of strength, confidence and self-worth.

Mars, your ruler, is in your sign all month long. Time for you to take charge! Assert yourself! Much of your energy will be taken with pursuing your own aims and objectives.  Your energy is yours to own and do with as you will What do you want? Pursue that. Be a pioneer and take bold initiatives, even if you feel that you’re not flowing with the mainstream. Do what speaks to you. You’re in the process of rethinking how you fit into your community. In fact you may be newly obsessed with where you fit in, who your friends are and what you want your contribution to be on a social level. Your dreams and ideals are transforming in front of your very eyes so let it happen and take a step back this summer to reconsider exactly where you see yourself fitting in. Your old life is in the process of dissolving on so many levels that your conscious mind can barely keep up. Don’t worry. Your spirit knows what it’s doing.

You have a truly vibrant community around you right now, connecting with like-minded people, perhaps fighting for a common cause.  Whatever it is, you’re really fired up with much of your energy invested in your group, community, social media or circle of friends. Network and connect with outsiders and like-minded souls like you who are willing to fight for the ideals you hold in common.

Your greatest luck comes through the group projects and causes you are involved with, through networking and through who you know.

Empowerment is at the core of your question, whether it is by establishing powerful and mutually beneficial relationships, developing a passive income or embarking into big business.  You may also have a greater interest in the occult now. You’re in the process of letting go of old beliefs as an old worldview is dissolving. Legal, international or academic matters require sacrifices and hard work now, as does anything to do with publishing or broadcasting.

And while your. luck may be hidden, it’s good to know that you have a guardian angel watching over you in the coming year, and helping you to heal on every level and reconnect with your spirit.

Leo Horoscope May 2024
