May Horoscope for Taurus

(April 20th – May 20th)

With Uranus in your sign by May 15th change is on your plate. Get ready to welcome in the unexpected; nothing goes as planned. However, the results could be better than you imagined so don’t panic. Have faith in the Universe. Relationships are supportive and good, but goals and career are the focus of the change. So just be flexible and adapt.

Taureans are leaders when it comes to charm, they know how to tell you what you want to hear and pretend that that’s exactly who they are – for the moment. It’s a great quality, when the intention is good, but if intentions are to manipulate, then it can be a destructive talent. When you constantly let others down, they begin to not trust you and trust is the building blocks of a good reputation. Success is largely based on what others think of you, for the public to dismiss your character, you’d have to be a genius and offer something exceptionally unique. However, not being true to oneself damages the self.  And since Taurus rules values, my advice is to put this one at the top of your list. As a Taurus you may see a commitment as an obstacle to your freedom when it’s the path to freedom. When you know where your boundaries are, then you are free to create within them. If you’re an artist you have to know what it is you want to draw before you can draw it. A writer has to have an idea, a set of limits as to what goes into an article or a chapter or it will never be written. Boundaries seem to limit us, when in truth they give us strength and freedom. 

The full Moon on the 29th puts the Moon in the 8th house of other people’s resources, transformation and power. With the Moon in Gemini at this moment, it’s restless and dissatisfied. What the Taurus has to learn is to value the little things in life, they lead to the big picture. The balance here is between yourself and others, the big picture and the little things that need your attention – well they’re one and the same. They’re connected. So, don’t isolate yourself, realize that you need others. Remind yourself that everything begins from a seed and if you don’t nurture that seed it dies. If you’re always looking for the big picture instead of what’s in front of you, you may never get to where you want to be.

On May 15th Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius, enters Taurus and it begins to change your life. The truth will prevail. This is the planet of surprise. Uranus is strongly present in the charts of earthquakes; tension builds below the surface and then Uranus arrives and releases it. Sure, it can do damage, but sooner or later what’s not working has to go. Have you been listening to your inner tension, to the truth that wants to surface? If you haven’t, then get ready for a very interesting month, because it’s not under your control. Your mission will be to adjust, adapt and get out of the way, so what’s meant to happen can come forth with the least amount of resistance. Perhaps your awakening will come with a new idea, or a vow to change your way of life. If you’ve been silent, then maybe this is your chance to speak your mind. And if you’ve been racing around and not moving forward then this is your moment to get a clearer vision of what works and what doesn’t. Pay attention to what emerges around the 15th, it’s the lesson you’ll be coping with for the next seven years. If you’ve been doing your work, then perhaps Uranus will be a reward. A chance to cut through the closed doors of opportunity. It’s change, whether you see it as good or bad will depend on where you are in your own head and how close you are to your own truth.

The Sun will trine Saturn and Pluto during May. These two planets reside in your 9th house of travel, legal matters and beliefs. It’s your month to shine, but to do so you’ve got to stay focused on what needs to be done. There’s not a lot of wiggle room for you these days. It’s important to be clear on what is a priority and what isn’t. You’re being observed by those in power, so for whatever reason you are forced to behave, take it as a good omen from the universe. They’re providing you with the structure you always struggle with implementing. This is not a time for freedom; it’s a time for commitment.

Aquarius rules your 10th house of career. Uranus is at the end of Aries for the first half of the month and Mars squares it. You’ve got a lot of change happening now so just keep your focus and all will be well. What is necessary now is perseverance, don’t get distracted -- stay focused. If you can, you will accomplish your goals.  

Relationships should be good. Scorpio rules your 7th house of partners and with Jupiter there, you will feel supported and things should go well. Jupiter makes a grand trine in water, to Neptune and Venus and so idealism is high and so are expectations. This is a time to dream and envision where you want to be. If you’re in a relationship then commit to it. If you don’t have a partner, Jupiter brings opportunity and romance. It’s very possible you could fall in love; all the stars are in the right place – are you? Is that what you want, or do you just want fun? Perhaps deceiving yourself is part of the experience. Just remember that you’re involving someone else.
