WEEK OF May 9 – 15, 2022
Approaching overload? Life begins to settle back into normal-sized proportions starting on Tuesday, May 10, when excitement-junkie Jupiter leaves your sign temporarily and advances into Aries and your grounded second house until October 28. Since December 28, 2021, you’ve been hosting the high-octane planet in your sign, and since then, you may have stretched PAST your limits in groundbreaking (and, at times, exhausting) ways. But as one of the zodiac’s emotional water signs, you crave a measure of security—even if you’re repeating a comforting routine on a daily basis. Starting this week, as Jupiter decamps to Aries and your second house of security and money until October 28 (then has a second phase from December 20, 2022 to May 16, 2023), you can get your fins back on terra firma and lay a new, more solid financial foundation.
This is a golden time to focus on your professional aspirations, set intentions and start to manifest them because you’ve got a cosmic tailwind at your back. Plus, Jupiter will swim ONE more lap through Pisces from October 28 to December 20, giving you a chance to double back on anything you started in the first half of the year, and actually make the meaningful initiatives stick. What are your goals—a soul-satisfying new job (or just a super-well-paying one?), launching your own brand, saving enough for a new car or dream vacation? Whatever the case, you’ll probably welcome a bit more stability this summer and fall. Since Jupiter rules education and advanced training, you might consider adding some tools to your kit or bringing your skills up to date by taking some workshops, webinars or formal classes. When it comes to your hard-earned cash, stay mindful. What good is making more if you burn it as fast as you earn it?
Speaking of security, Tuesday also brings another prompt to guard what’s sacred to you, when Mercury spins into its second retrograde of the year. This time around, it backs up through Gemini (until May 22) and Taurus, hitting your zones of home and family then local activity before resuming direct motion on June 3. Honor your space, which also includes another home…your body. Nourish yourself well, setting up a healthy kitchen and sanctified sleep space. Mercury retrograde is famous for bringing inexplicable and unforeseeable miscommunications. Underlying issues with family and friends could boil up like an active volcano, and the tiniest fissure could cause one of you to erupt. Minimize the damage by being extra clear in your instructions, conversations, emails and texts. Maybe it’s time to call a house meeting to get everyone aligned around rules, chores, bills and other agreements. One sweet aspect of retrogrades is that they can bring people back from the past, including old friends, long lost relatives and lovers. Enjoy the reunion vibes, but if this is someone who previously stepped on your heart, don’t be naive enough to think it could “never” happen again.
Now for something that might lure you away from home this week: On Sunday, May 15th (early May 16 in some areas) a total lunar (full moon) eclipse in Scorpio electrifies your ninth house of global adventures. Opportunity could come a-knocking, possibly from far-flung corners of the globe. In the two weeks to follow, be sure to cast the widest possible net. You don’t have to relocate or even board a plane to be an international player—but honestly, this eclipse may get plans in motion for some world-expanding travel. Make it a “pilgrimage with a purpose,” like a journey to your ancestral homeland or a visit to meet colleagues in the London offices with whom you’ll be collaborating. The ninth house rules education (and teaching) as well as entrepreneurism. If you’ve been quietly developing a business idea over the past six months or working up a course curriculum, start marketing your offerings. Your customer base could evolve quickly!
