May is the month of flowers, Sun, and the fullest expression of Spring’s beauty. It makes sense for the month to begin with the Sun in a graceful, grounded, and gorgeous Taurus, encouraging you to slow down and absorb all the smooth, steady vibrations.
However, this coming month of May is not as smooth as the vision you may have of it. In fact, May 2021 will be quite challenging for Cancer, Virgo, and Sagittarius, and for them, it may be a lot more chaotic and unpredictable than they hoped.
Once Gemini season kicks off on May 20, you could be in for a pretty bumpy ride. This is because a Blood Moon (also called a Lunar Eclipse) will take place on May 26, starting the month off with a major bang. In astrology, Blood Moons are much more than a mystical lunation in which the Moon begins to radiate the color crimson red.
They signify a major turning point, and often they bring completely unexpected changes. When eclipse season begins, it’s not clear what the cosmos has planned for you, and to be completely honest, it’s not in your hands. However, you can rest assured that what happens in the weeks surrounding an eclipse was meant to happen.
In fact, it has always been part of your destiny. However, at first, you might have a little trouble knowing which changes are really permanent. This is because Mercury will station retrograde on May 29 in Gemini, which will infuse the cosmos with confusing and delicate energy.
Mercury retrograde can create discord that eventually resolves itself. It can also bring up unfinished business from the past, opening doors that were never really closed. May is a month of uncertainty, but it could also lead to permanent changes. All you can do is wait and see what happens.
After all, on May 8, Mercury and Venus will be in your 12th house of spirituality, encouraging you to look within and allow yourself to feel all that you have been harboring within.
You may be keeping secrets to yourself and suppressing your emotions so that you can get through your days. However, this month you might feel like an ocean of feelings is washing over you, encouraging you to swim in it and understand it.
You may be facing major career changes. This could be a very busy and life-changing month for you, Virgo. When the Lunar Eclipse takes place in your 10th career house on May 26, it will initiate changes that will affect you both professionally and personally.
There is a balance between your private and public life, and this month that balance can be difficult to achieve.
You may be making unexpected changes that are forcing you to reconsider your perception of your career goals. It can even lead you on a new path.
You feel the pressure of an unexpected change. If this month comes down to one word, it would be “pressure”. You might feel like there is so much on your plate; much more than what you are comfortable with.
The cosmos is brewing a real storm for you, and while it can be difficult, it also means that you are the main character in the story right now.
A powerful turning point is taking place and you are embarking on a journey that will lead you to your higher self. It might be a bumpy ride, but it makes the destination all the more interesting.
