Your May Horoscope for Virgo
Your third house also rules communication and negotiation. Be careful about what you write in an email, letter, and on social media, and what you say and how you say it in person, both at work and in your private life. This will be a hot eclipse at the start of the month, and you could unconsciously trigger a meltdown of epic proportions.
Also at this touchy eclipse, stay away from discussing controversial subjects. You may think your sister is wrong for favoring one political candidate over another, but your impassioned plea to see the light and embrace your political views won’t change her opinion. In fact, it could deeply damage your relationship. It would be best to keep your viewpoints confidential, especially at eclipse time when people will be feeling fragile. I have given one example, but I think you know what I mean.
Adding to the atmosphere of confusion, crisis, and fog caused by the lunar eclipse will be Mercury retrograde, a trend that started on April 21 and will continue until May 14. Mercury (remember, Mercury is your ruler) will be in a weak position, and your decisions and judgment could be off. You may misread a situation by being impulsive (blame Uranus), and that would only add to the confusion.
Having Jupiter in perfect angle to your Sun will add ease, optimism, and lucky breaks from May 16 until May 25, 2024.
