Today's Horoscope This week This month
Gemini horoscope for May 2022
With so many different threads running through the month there will be a need for balance, especially with the last thrust to get this professional year up to speed coming just as you are in the final weeks of your old solar year. Until the Sun returns to Gemini on 21st May to begin your birthday month and new solar year, he will always spend the first three weeks of May in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart. This brings a chance to both reflect on the journey that this current solar year has taken you on while catching your breath and recharging your batteries before your next solar year begins.
At the same time, starting the month with Venus and Jupiter aligned in your career sector, both in their final days but Mars staying on to create as much momentum as possible before leaving on 25th May, this is also likely to be a busy month. While Venus will leave on 3rd May and Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion on 11th May, a total lunar eclipse in your work sector on 16th May is set to energise things across the income, work and career fronts. The Moon will be here from 14th May, giving you an intuitive read on work and job matters when the dwarf planet Ceres becomes the first planet to return to your income sector this year, when she returns on 15th May.
With Mars leaving your career sector 10 days later, the eclipsing Full Moon will have the power to jump start things across the income, work and career fronts. Meanwhile, while the Sun won't return to Gemini until 21st May, the month begins with Mercury not only here but having returned in the final hours of April, is still in his first full day here as you move into the new month. Normally here for 14 to 15 days, ahead of the Sun's return this is a chance to get your head in the game and around your options for your new solar year. However, a retrograde turn on 10th May will not only keep Mercury here until 23rd May but once direct, he will return for a do over next month.
Love & RomanceWhile there is no planetary activity on the romantic or relationship fronts this month, the Moon will have its usual monthly impact on both while Venus and Mercury, the planets of love and communication will provide some indirect support. Venus, the planet of love will spend from 3rd May to 29th May in a social and serendipitous part of your chart, where she will spend the majority of the month working with the laws of attraction and synchronicity in order to put you in the right place at the right time. When Venus is here, serendipitous moments and/or encounters are a lot more likely.
Especially if you are willing to trust your heart and your gut, something that will be important when the Moon moves through your romantic sector from 12th May to 14th May. This will put the Moon and Venus in opposition but in a way that will not only amplify her influence but can challenge your excuses. The Moon will also connect with Venus as it makes its monthly visit to your relationship sector from 16th May to 19th May. This time, this will put the Moon and Venus at a friendly aspect, creating some of the best days of the month for friendship and relationship building.
While this is something that will see the Moon clash with Mercury, by then in retrograde motion and just days away from retrograding back out of Gemini on 23rd May, this too will have positive implications. Just as the Moon's clash with Venus will amplify her presence, a clash with Mercury can be the push needed to make the most of the planet of communication's final days in your sign. This will put a balance between your personal and relationship needs to the test just days before your birthday month and new solar year begin while offering a chance to give your emotional responses, relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice.
Business & CareerStarting the month with five planets still in your career sector, even though it has been nearly six weeks since the Sun left is not only keeping things active much further into the year than is normally the case, it is only now that things are coming together. The month not only begins with Venus and Jupiter, the two benefics aligned in your career sector but just days after Venus also aligned with dreamy Neptune. Venus is the planet of desire and expectations and Jupiter is the planet of luck and expansion, with their first alignment here in over a decade getting the month off to an auspicious start.
With Venus leaving on 3rd May and Jupiter on 11th May, they will be working to make their final days here count, with the very real potential for professional growth and expansion. However, it is once Venus and Jupiter leave that there could have been the potential for things to drop off. That won't be the case and not just because here until 25th May, Mars will continue to fire things up and as the warrior planet of the cosmos will fight to exploit the momentum already gained. However, what gives this even more longevity was the asteroid Juno's return late last month.
While only a minor player and overshadowed by the more dominant planets Juno, the queen of commitment is here now until January 2023 and she will stay on to keep you committed, while Neptune will stay on to keep the dream alive. It is just three days after Jupiter leaves on 11th May that the Moon will not only return to your work sector on 14th May but to begin the lead up to a Full Moon here on 16th May. This is no ordinary Full Moon and instead a total lunar eclipse. With Mars still in your career sector and the dwarf planet Ceres returning to your income sector on 15th May, this will energise things across the income, work and career fronts.
MoneyThe dynamics of this financial year are shifting and while it is happening in slow motion, a gradual slide away from money matters being the dominant force and onto the income side of the financial fence has begun. For now, there is no evidence of anything changing on the income front and there won't be until the middle of the month but a focus on money matters is already dialling back, something that will make room for income matters. It began last month, with Pluto slowing to an eventual standstill ahead of his retrograde turn in your financial sector on 30th April.
Pluto will begin the month at a standstill but in retrograde motion for the next five months and no other developments in that time, when it comes to your financial situation and money matters this is a chance to go back over the broad brush strokes you may have painted over recent months. With money matters in review mode, there is finally a chance to give the income side of the financial fence some much needed attention. While there is no planetary activity in your income sector and the Sun won't return until later next month, this is giving you time to first gain the right professional momentum, something that you have a chance to achieve this month.
However, while the Sun won't return to your income sector until later next month the money gods will start preparing for what will become the most lucrative months of the year. It starts with the dwarf planet Ceres' return to your income sector on 15th May and while this is less about the money and more a chance to update your income needs and priorities, this is preparation for what lies ahead. Meanwhile, the Moon's return to your income sector from 5th May to 7th May could have lucrative implications, especially with Jupiter in his final days in your career sector by then and Venus, the planet of money having just left.
