Oct - 21 Nov
With the Sun in your opposite sign of Taurus
until May 21 there is a strong emphasis on
relationships, commercial, professional, emotional,
romantic and your dealings with other people
generally this May. Therefore, be prepared to go out
of your way to cooperate, compromise and be a team
player. If you are going to have to dance to another’s tune
you might as well put on a good show.
The full Moon in Scorpio, your Sun sign, around May 4 is highlighting your needs and agenda. So if you want to move things in a certain direction, then those days either side of the full Moon would be good time to take hold of the helm and steer things in your preferred direction. The continued presence of Jupiter on high in Leo suggests a generally favorable backdrop for matters concerning work, vocation and dealing with those in positions of power and authority. The presence of Saturn in Sagittarius, one of the money zones of your solar chart is also emphasizing the need to get your financial house in order and if you do this will have long-term implications. The importance of a more conservative, pragmatic and sensible attitude to personal finances is likely to be brought home to you this month.
There is a strong emphasis on Gemini throughout May and Mercury, ruler of Gemini will be retrograde in Gemini from May 19 – June 12. Mercury enters Gemini on May 1 and will oppose Saturn in Sagittarius on May 3. Mars enters Gemini on May 12 and will oppose Saturn in Sagittarius on May 15. The Sun enters Gemini on May 21 and will oppose Saturn Sagittarius on May 23. The following dates, May 3, May 15 and May 23 could be times when you will be challenged to take a stand over a financial matter. This would be good time to put the brakes on any situation that threatens to create financial complications for you and for those with whom you are more intimately financially involved. Resist the temptation to rely on credit, credit cards or other indirect sources of finance at this time. Saturn is asking you to make the most of what you have and not to overextend yourself and to ask those with whom you are financially or materially involved, to do likewise.
Mercury’s retrograde period from May 19 – June 12 could prove tricky, especially where financial paperwork, documents, agreements and information are concerned. Generally, when Mercury is retrograde we have a tendency to cut corners and not read the fine print. Misunderstandings, bad information and even misinformation are more likely and certain individuals. Whether by accident or design, may have a tendency to be a little economical with the truth. Those things that facilitate communication, networks and connections, are more likely to become overloaded, unreliable and prone to error now. We are more likely to have problems with phones, the internet, travel plans and arrangements. Therefore, leave plenty of space in your diary and time between important meetings and your attempts to get from A to B. Each of the 12 signs will experience Mercury’s retrograde influence in a specific area of their solar chart, and therefore their lives.
For Scorpio, Mercury’s retrograde has financial implications, especially those involved with others whether partners, institutions or simply the flexible friend who lives in your purse. The general tenor is favorable for Scorpio in 2015. The key to your prosperity and success will be connected with your ability to look after the nickels and dimes because if you do, the dollars will look after themselves.
