The new Moon in Aries and Bharani nakshatra sets up a waxing cycle of death, restraint and transformation. Yama forces accountability, focus and righteous actions- which he'll do brutally if he has to. As the Moon waxes, Sun shifts out of exaltation and into an enemies sign. Less than a week later, Venus joins the Sun here as well, but it's her own sign, which cancels some of the challenges between Sun and Venus.
Jupiter goes direct in Leo at 06:07 MDT, Monday May 9th and has been retrograde for over four months now. Three planets are still in retrograde motion (Mars, Saturn and Mercury) but this does promote more forward momentum for power, strength, masculine energy and with regard to our light source, the Sun, ruler of Leo.
Sun in Taurus
On May 14th at 04:48 MDT, Sun moves to a challenging sign, Taurus for the coming month. Ruling planet of this earth sign is Venus, the water planet that gives life and fruitful existence- inside and out. Sun as fire, heat and all that burns, purifies and clarifies, doesn't mix well with the watery nature of Venus.
Venus in Taurus
Just before the full Moon, Venus moves to its own sign, Taurus, joining enemy, Sun, here. Venus arrives in Taurus on May 19th at 07:56 am Mountain Time. This transit increases the themes that are present with Sun transiting the same sign.
*Horoscopes are based on your Vedic (sidereal) rising sign. You can also check your Moon and Sun signs for further insight. Do the same with your Navamsa signs for further clarity. Do not use these horoscopes with your Western sign (Tropical) as there is likely no correlation. These horoscopes are meant to be used as a broad overview of the current transits and obviously do not address the specifics of an individual’s unique chart.
Aries: Creativity and relationships will have their challenges, but if you can turn down the heat, you'll find ample creative juiciness. Romance, child-like wonder and intuitive wisdom begin to move forward as Jupiter goes direct. You must continue to work with your hidden blockages and obstacles though.
Taurus: Light increases for you, once Sun emerges from its hiding place in the 12th house and moves into your head, the first house. Allow creativity, alone time and extra moments in bed to serve your self care practice. Relationships will feel unsatisfying- lurching forward at times, while stopping and slowing at other times.
Gemini: As Sun moves out of your house of gains and into its place of reclusiveness, the 12th house, it's time to pause and check-in with yourself. This is not a cycle of external focus, so best not force this. Your time will be well spent in bed resting, meditating or taking extra alone time.
Cancer: As Sun leaves your 10th house of career, it's a time of harvesting from your previous efforts and finding ways to fill your container with more resources. The conflicts and challenges you are facing are just your resistance to receiving. Why are you refusing to be nourished and supported from your work?
Leo: Your inner power and awareness begins to turn outward once again after the 9th. The inner strength you've been cultivating over the past four months, starts to find a way to externalize now. Diligently share your energy through actions, choices and behaviors that support your gifts, talents and abilities.
Virgo: Once Sun shifts out of your 8th house, moving to your house of dharma on the 14th, a new level of illumination strikes you. The transformational process you've been in the past month will pave the way for more dharmic support. Tap into your inner creative resources and channel this into projects and actions.
Libra: As Sun dips into your 8th house on the 14th, you begin a month of inner transformation. There is potential for deeper inner work and healing if you say yes to the change process and allow challenges to support your shifts. Strong desires for relationship arrive, yet you're unclear how to direct this energy fully.
Scorpio: Life is moving in jolts of stops and starts, yes and no, open and close. You are finding your dance with life in new ways, embrace the process. As Sun shifts to your 7th house of relationships on the 14th, looking in the mirror will do you good. Notice how relationships, the "other", are challenging you.
Sagittarius: You experience power shifts once Sun moves to your 6th house on the 14th. Suddenly there's a change in your purpose, inner knowing and desires. It's time to radically address where you are stuck and resistant to greater comfort, stability and support within. There's powerful liberation available to you.
Capricorn: Let your heart swell with passion, creativity and inner wisdom. Your intuitive knowing and your creative power are connected to your heart, your ability to feel. Gains and increases come when you work with the heart blockages, the places within you that resist nourishment and feeling your emotional power.
Aquarius: Chip away the illusions and the false parts of yourself. Rip of the veils and masks that are hiding your true, raw self. What is keeping you in the shadows? You say you want more in this life, to feel more satisfied and sustained, yet you resist the necessary changes in order to make this happen.
Pisces: Nourishment is key. Be fed, be well fed, by life. What are the ingredients you need to make a satisfying life, a life worth living? What is missing for this recipe? Feed yourself well and let your digestion support your transformation and healing process. The mouth and gut are direct connections to your dharmic work.
