Your May Horoscope for Aries
Mercury will retrograde from May 10 to June 3, so you may have to wait until June to see the start of sterling opportunities and rewards come your way.
You might be negotiating a new job or a promotion, for the full moon lunar eclipse of May 15/16 in Scorpio will light you eighth house of other people’s money. This suggests you may be settling the final agreement on the list of company benefits. It is significant that Mars, your ruler, meant to protect you, will be in ideal angel to the Sun and full moon in both your financial houses. You may not get everything you ask for, however, for Saturn will be square the Sun (a harsh 90-degree angle), an indication that you may encounter limits on how far you can negotiate. It’s alternatively possible that concern about family and home may make taking on more responsibilities in exchange for more money not practical. Only you can decide—the eclipse will ask you to make your choice.
After much financial negotiation and calculating, you will need a break, and the new moon of May 30 will offer you a superb chance of taking a getaway. Jupiter will allow you a touch of luxury, so go ahead and treat yourself. At the time of this new moon, Jupiter and Mars will be conjunct in Aries, an incredibly rare and fortunate aspect—the last time this happened was April 2011. Treat yourself to a change of scene—you may call your sister to come along. You’ve been home quite a bit, due to the raging pandemic. This is your chance to flee joyfully.
