Be kind to yourself, because your weekly horoscope for May 9 through May 15 is testing your will to succeed. Alas, we the collective now find ourselves in the thick of things. Retrograde season is nigh — or rather, now. Almost two weeks ago, Pluto (planet of transformation) in Capricorn went retrograde. On Tuesday, Mercury (planet of communication) follows the lead of the planet of transformation and begins its own retrograde motion. Fortunately, Mercury ‘s Rx period is not nearly as long as Pluto’s. However, being in the sign of Gemini, Mercury’s sign of its rulership, this retrograde season will be especially heavy on the miscommunication, confusion, and general mishaps.
On the same day, Jupiter (planet of expansion) ends its sojourn in watery Pisces. While the sign of the Fish had us dreaming of a better life, Jupiter in Aries encourages us to get out and fight for what we desire. Each of us is the master of our reality, and this transit is here to remind us of that!
This week ends on a powerful note with the full moon in Scorpio. As was the case for the new moon in Taurus, this lunation falls on an eclipse. Though, this one is lunar rather than solar, as was the case a few weeks ago. All I can say is: prepare for intensity! And if you’re searching for further clarification, check out your May 2022 horoscope for a more detailed overview of what this month has in store.
