Your May Horoscope for Pisces
Later, there will be two more eclipses in 2022 in the same family of signs, in Taurus and Scorpio, and those will come on October 25 (Scorpio) and November 8 (Taurus). Next year there will be two more eclipses in the same Taurus-Scorpio series on May 5, 2023, and October 28, 2023. After that, the eclipses will be moving on to a new family of signs. You would not feel all the eclipses in a series the same way, only the ones that touch the mathematical degree of your Sun, natal moon, or one of the natal planets in your birth chart.
Now let’s talk about the first one, a new moon solar eclipse that occurred on April 30, 2022, one day before the beginning of May. It appeared in Taurus, 10 degrees, that will affect you for at least six months, possibly longer. Uranus, the planet of all things unexpected, arrived tightly conjunct the Sun and new moon. Something unexpected already came up or soon will. You may have encountered a glitch in negotiations that you never saw coming. If you are working internationally, the problem may stem from that area—a project you are doing overseas could bring a dilemma. However, because Taurus blends well with your Pisces Sun sign (water and earth produce flowers), you can dissolve almost any obstacle and make it work for you. This is a new moon, however, so untangling the problem could take time.
Alternatively, you may have unexpectedly lost a steady writing job because sometimes an eclipse will “eclipse out” a marginal element in your life that is no longer relevant for your future. The third house, where this eclipse appeared, is all about communication, and for months, you’ve had a lot of emphasis on writing, editing, speaking, translation, library research, or studying lines for acting. This month you may be dealing with a miscommunication that has to be cleared up.
On the plus side, you have Venus, Jupiter, and Neptune—lovely planets—all conjunct and sending warm greetings to Mercury. Although some of those planets will have moved by the time you read this, what matters is at the time of the eclipse they were together, so the die is cast and will affect you as you move forward. These are such loving planets, and if you are involved in a creative project, they will help you. Collaborations will go very well, too.
