Taurus Horoscope for May 2022

Your May Horoscope for Taurus

The full moon in May, such as the one this year, May 15/16, has been called the Flower Moon, a beautiful name. This full moon will be a lunar eclipse in Scorpio, 25 degrees, and put a spotlight on a close relationship, such as you may have with a spouse or a close, committed partner or collaborator in business. Lunar eclipses tend to bring things to fullness and conclusion.

Sometimes an eclipse will “eclipse out” a person from your environment—someone you were close to may move away, or you may be the one to move away. If a situation has gone on for a long time without crystallizing to a finish, an eclipse will bring that condition to an end for you. Eclipses also shine a floodlight of truth on circumstances, giving you the final puzzle piece that can suddenly change the complexion of a situation and provide you with a eureka moment. You may have a sudden understanding of the situation in a way that you could never have understood it before without that extra piece of information that reveals all in a new way.

Again, Mars, the action planet—still in your eleventh house of friendship, a house that also rules your deepest hopes and wishes—will be outstandingly supportive of this eclipse. Also, supportive Neptune, the planet of creativity and inspiration, and Jupiter in Aries, zero degrees, are in an out-of-sign sextile, supporting the Sun and full moon eclipse at 25 degrees Scorpio.

However, Uranus, the planet of disruption and out-of-the-blue news, will oppose the lunar eclipse. The mathematics of Uranus’ orbit is wide, not tight. (Tight would have a certain influence, but a wide one is not as certain to do so.) Uranus is at 15 degrees Taurus, within 10 degrees of an opposition to the eclipse in Scorpio at 25 degrees, which is on the borderline of significance. Usually, at a new or full moon I would allow no more than 8 degrees between two planets to create an effect, but eclipses are different. For an eclipse, I allow 10 degrees, for eclipses are more powerful. This means Uranus might create a surprise, possibly an untoward piece of news that you won’t see coming. If you discover anything about someone close who has betrayed you or worked at cross-purposes to your interests, you will have to confront that person. In that case, you will be given the truth, and you will have to decide what to do with that truth. Think things through slowly.
