Continue to The Horoscope For May 2022 :
This will be a critical month for your career, a turning point, when a long-held dream may come true. It’s even possible that you never dreamed that the opportunities you are seeing now would ever come up—it may have been in your mind, a career break that was to be too fantastic, too extreme, too big, and yet, here you are, today, and that opportunity is becoming real and tangible before your eyes.
Jupiter is still circulating in your tenth house of honors, awards, and achievement, a place Jupiter took up at the end of December, and this planet of goodness will leave for another part of your chart on May 10 this month. (Jupiter will pop back to this area when he scoots back to Pisces for a final goodbye from October 27 to December 20 this year, not to return to this career part of your chart for 12 years.) If you still need to present to a powerful person to advance a professional dream, do it within the first 10 days of May.
You not only have Jupiter but action-hero Mars in that same part of your chart. Mars first entered Pisces on April 14 and will remain until May 24 this month. Mars will give you the push you need to compete in a winning way.
At the same time your career excitement is going on, you have just come through a solar eclipse in your twelfth house of solitude (April 30). With the Sun positioned there, it appears you are withdrawing to do research or writing, and because the moon is there too, this project will be quite lucrative for you. Uranus was conjunct the Sun, so surprising twists and turns are due, and the media seems involved—television, cable, the digital world, or publishing. These disciplines are Gemini’s forte, and now your talents are being recognized. Keep working on your craft—develop your talents to a higher level of sophistication. With your dazzling aspects, you can do it.
The lunar eclipse, a full moon, on May 15/16 could bring a project to a culmination and finish. It seems tied to the work you were concentrating on while behind the scenes this month. This lunar eclipse is beautifully oriented to Mars in your prestigious professional sector, so it is likely your work is going to be well-received. With a powerful nod from Pluto, money is rolling in, and the sum may be substantial.
Keep an eye on your health, for if you neglect it, this full moon eclipse will remind you to care for your body. Dear Gemini, you are often so busy living in your head that you sometimes forget you even have a body. Attend to annual exams and screenings, and when your doctor gives you the advice to feel even better than you do now, you’ll be on top of the world.
The new moon (not an eclipse) in Gemini on May 30 will be another important moment to start a shiny new chapter in any realm that inspires you. The best part is that Jupiter will have moved into Aries by now, setting your social life on fire. Mars, the ruler of Aries, will be orbiting tightly in unison with Jupiter, putting the passion back in your closest relationships and encouraging you to bond closer to friends.
Keep in mind that Mercury will be retrograde all month, from May 10 to June 3. Arrange your schedule to avoid making key decisions during that period, for Mercury is Gemini’s ruling planet. This month, Mercury will be exceedingly strong, for Mercury will be in Gemini. Be careful and deliberate in all you do. If you have a contract to sign, show it to your lawyer first—you may be told certain clauses need to be clarified or made fairer for you.
It’s a month with one success after another—you will need to stop occasionally, just to catch your breath.
