Monthly Love Horoscopes - May 2019
There is a lot of focus on communication this month, though the dynamics will shift as the month progresses. Mercury, the planet of communication begins the month in Aries but ends the month in your communication sector, making up remarkable time to get from one to another. Just two weeks separate Mercury's departure from Aries on 7th May and his return to your communication sector on 21st May, exactly two weeks later. With Mars in your communication sector until 16th May he will cover most of that time, as he continues to push through communication barriers. This is what makes the timing of the Moon's visit to your relationship sector this month especially auspicious. The Moon will move through from 15th May to 17th May, so will be there when Mars leaves your communication sector on 16th May and this time, this matters. For the Moon is coming full circle from not just last month's Full Moon in your relationship sector, but from two Full Moons over the last two months. In fact, this is the Moon's first visit to your relationship sector since February that doesn't result in a Full Moon. Yet with a lot stirred up on the relationship front over the past two months, having Mars on hand to give your emotional responses and relationships a voice is a case of perfect timing. With Mars not returning until 2021 but the Sun and Mercury both returning to your communication sector on 21st May, he will be happy for the push these romantically charged lunar vibes can bring. In the meantime, the Moon's return to your romantic sector comes with equally good timing. Moving through from 11th May to 13th May, this will bring romantically charged lunar vibes into play during Venus, the planet of love's final days in Aries, before leaving on 15th May.
Venus, the planet of love will have a big influence this month and as your ruling planet, this is something you will respond to. Venus is also making this a month of two halves, drawing a neat line between the two halves on 15th May. Until 15th May, Venus is in the final days of a visit to a nostalgic part of your chart she makes before returning to Taurus each year. Until leaving on 15th May, Venus is taking your heart on a nostalgic trip down love's memory lane, with a lot of romantic nostalgia in the air. Despite the fact that your birthday month and new solar year have already begun, your heart will still be looking to the past. That changes when Venus returns to Taurus on 15th May, shifting the focus away from the past and onto the future. Before then, Venus is encountering Chiron, the planet of healing for the first time in a nostalgic part of your chart in four decades. With this comes a valuable chance to lay some old ghosts to rest, before opening new doors. The Moon will move through your romantic sector from 13th May to 15th May, with romantically charged lunar vibes in play during the final days of this nostalgic but also healing trip down love's memory lane. Venus will return to Taurus on 15th May, the same day that the Moon leaves your romantic sector but several hours later. As Venus returns to open new doors and to turn your heart's focus onto the future, it will be with the scent of those romantically charged lunar vibes still in the air. It is just two days after Venus' return that the Moon will make its monthly visit to your relationship sector, from 17th May to 19th May. As Venus returns to update your romantic and relationship desires and expectations for the coming year, this visit is just as important. With Mars returning to your communication sector on 16th May, he'll be on hand to give your emotional responses and relationships a voice.
Things settle down on both the romantic and relationship fronts this month, with an easy and settled feel on both fronts. It was last month that Jupiter and Ceres turned retrograde in your relationship sector, with their early weeks in retrograde motion met by some opposition from Mars, as he moves through Gemini. There may still be some relationship tension at the start of the month, with Mars and Jupiter still in opposition at the start of the month. Yet this is Mars fighting for your needs while Jupiter is advocating for your relationships. This is the same battle that the Sun and Mercury will wage when they return to Gemini on 21st June. With the focus on your relationships all year it was a given that during your birthday month there would be some push back, as your own needs become more pronounced. What Mars has done is flush out any issues ahead of time. From her position in your friendship sector Venus, the planet of love is on friendly terms with both planets in your relationship sector so this will help turn this into something empowering. This makes the Moon's visit to your communication sector from 11th May to 13th May a lot more important, with a chance to give your emotional responses a voice. With Mercury, the planet of communication returning to Gemini on 21st May, this will provide something more long lasting. In the meantime, the Moon will move through your romantic sector from 15th May to 17th May and for the first time since February, this won't be a Full Moon. For the first time in 58 years, the Moon's visits in March and April were both Full Moons, with the Moon's return this month carrying with it all the energy from both Full Moons. The Moon is here, with romantically charged lunar vibes in play as Venus, the planet of love returns to a nostalgic part of your chart on 15th May. As well as infusing these romantically charged lunar vibes with a sense of romantic nostalgia, this is an auspicious way to kick off a nearly four week long nostalgic trip down love's memory lane.
With so much focus on your relationships so far this year, this month's romantically charged Full Moon is a nice escape, even if it is just for a few days and even if you do have to wait until the middle of the month. Both Saturn and Pluto turned retrograde in your relationship sector during the final days of April and in Saturn's case in the final hours of last month. Saturn only turned retrograde on 30th April, with the start of the new month literally his first full day in retrograde motion. With Pluto having only turned retrograde five days earlier, this is something you are still adjusting to. It suits you to wait a few weeks for this month's romantically charged Full Moon, because by then you will have a chance to fully embrace this. Until then, there is a chance to settle into Pluto and Saturn's early weeks in retrograde motion and the focus this now puts on the past. This also makes the Moon's visit to your communication sector from 13th May to 15th May, the first since Saturn and Pluto turned retrograde, a valuable chance to give your emotional responses, relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice. Likewise, the Moon's visit to your relationship sector from 21st May to 24th May will be a valuable chance to regroup. However, what you are really waiting for this month is the Moon's visit to your romantic sector from 17th May to 19th May and the Full Moon this will create in its final hours. With the Moon returning two days before becoming a Full Moon, romantically charged lunar vibes will be waxing throughout their time here, slowly building and growing in momentum. This will give you time to dive into this, fully immersed in these romantically charged lunar vibes. If this provides a few days of pure escapism then this is just what you need.
While things are quiet on the romantic front this month, this is for all the right reasons and is potentially the state you have been aiming for since Jupiter returned to your romantic sector last November. As both Jupiter and Ceres spend their first full month in retrograde motion they are just starting to gain some momentum as they slowly trek back over ground already covered. However, not turning direct until August and this nostalgic trip down love's memory lane spanning the middle months of the year, there is no urgency. What you need to avoid is feeling that everything has to be accomplished overnight. The doors might be open to the past and second chances, there might be an opportunity for a do over or to learn what you can from this trip down memory lane, but any urgency is not coming from the love gods. The Moon's return to your romantic sector from 19th May to 21st May will be a valuable chance to check in, especially as Venus, the planet of love will be gone from an adventurous part of your chart by then. It is having Venus in an adventurous part of your chart until 15th May and at a friendly aspect to both planets in retrograde motion in your romantic sector, that is flooding the first half of the month with a mix of romance, adventure and nostalgia. While there is a strong focus on matters of the heart and all things romantic this month and that will remain the case all year, it is not the same on the relationship front. With no planetary activity in either your communication or relationship sectors, the key areas for relationship support, it all comes down to the Moon. The Moon will move through your communication sector from 15th May to 17th May and coming full circle from last month's Full Moon, will be a push to ensure the communication lines are open. It is during the Moon's visit to your relationship sector from 24th May to 26th May that there will be a chance to check in.
It was in the final days of April that both Saturn and Pluto turned retrograde in your romantic sector and in Saturn's case it was literally in the final hours of last month, with the first day of May his first full day in retrograde motion. This puts all the planets in your romantic sector in retrograde motion and all the love gods' focus onto the past and these are planets you need to pay attention to. Yet at the same time, as was the case last year, their retrograde phases from April to September have become part of the new pattern. Still in their early days in retrograde motion, Saturn and Pluto are in no hurry with literally months to explore the doors open to the past and second chances. Both planets in your romantic sector and matters of the heart, in general, will get a boost from Venus, the planet of love's return to an adventurous part of your chart on 15th May. Venus will spend the rest of the month here and until leaving next month, will continue to draw closer to a friendly aspect to both Saturn and Pluto. Here Venus returns with a mission to bring the spirit of romance and adventure together, so it is a given that she will join up with the most powerful planets to move through your romantic sector in decades. This will flood the second half of the month with a potent mix of romance, adventure and nostalgia. It was in the second half of April that both Venus and Mercury, the planets of love and communication left your relationship sector, leaving behind dreamy Neptune at the helm. And it will stay that way for the rest of the year and unlike every other year since his return in 2012, it is without being haunted by old ghosts. A Full Moon in your communication sector on 19th May will fall at a friendly aspect to Neptune. Even without the boost this will give the communication lines, this should bring a boost in confidence. And in terms of the relationship conditions ahead, there really is every reason for confidence.
As much as romantically charged lunar vibes towards the end of April have left you with a new sense of romantic confidence, the focus this month is on your relationships and on some very special and unique support from the communication gods. The Sun left your relationship sector over Easter and while this has taken the solar spotlight off your relationships, it was as the Sun was leaving that things got interesting. Mercury, the planet of communication had returned to your relationship sector just a few days before the Sun left, in time to turn a Full Moon into an opportunity for a breakthrough. However, it was less than 24 hours after the Sun left that Venus returned and this is something you will benefit from this month. Sometimes Venus and Mercury leave before the Sun and often have been and gone by the time you move into May. However, held back by a retrograde phase last year Venus was late to arrive and therefore is late to leave, while Mercury is late to arrive and leave because of a retrograde phase in March. With Mercury, the planet of communication here until 7th May and Venus, the planet of love until 15th May, your relationships are enjoying a late bloom. Yet this is not the only advantage your relationships have with the Sun, Mercury and Venus, who all return to your relationship sector at around this time each year, all experiencing stunning communication support. For the first time in 12 years, you have lucky Jupiter in your communication sector and in his first full month in retrograde motion is on hand to give your relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice. This is on top of the support Mercury, the planet of communication is able to bring. Even after Venus and Mercury leave, support from and between the communication and relationship gods will continue. Meanwhile, the romantically charged lunar vibes from 24th May to 26th May is the only chance the love gods will get to have an impact on this month.
Because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of May in your relationship sector, the solar spotlight is always on your relationships at this time of year. Always has and always will. However, that is about the only thing that could be considered the norm in what could be a stunning month for relationship matters. While Uranus, the planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected did return to your relationship sector last year, he returned during the Sun's final days and then retrograded back out a few months later. In early March Uranus returned and he is here now until 2026. It was just a few days after the Sun returned over Easter that he aligned with Uranus, for the first time here in eight decades, bringing two powerful forces together. The Sun is all about reality and 'what is'. During the Sun's month long visit to your relationship sector, you are asked to keep your eyes open and head out of the sand, which can mean facing up to reality. Yet Uranus looks beyond 'what is' and in the early months of a seven year search for something real and authentic, this is opening your eyes to what the journey ahead could bring. Whether single, in a relationship or between relationships, this is the start of an incredible journey that will literally take years to unfold. Things will become even more exciting when Mercury, the planet of communication returns on 7th May and Venus, the planet of love on 15th May. Both will align with Uranus, for the first time here in eight decades, peeling away even more layers. Because a New Moon on 5th May falls before Venus and Mercury return this might be more a case of committing to the journey or an ideal, trusting that support is on the way to help you walk the talk. Mercury is only here for 14 days and before leaving on 21st May there is a need to pack as much into getting the communication lines open as possible. However, you have the support of Saturn and Pluto, in their first full month in retrograde motion in your communication sector.
Because the Sun, Mercury and Venus travel together as a pack, they visit the same areas of your chart at roughly the same time each year. The Sun never deviates, with his departure from your romantic sector over Easter and return to your relationship sector on 21st May something that happens at the same time every year. It is Venus and Mercury who can either get ahead or lag behind, due to the fact that they have retrograde phases and the Sun doesn't. This month that slight discrepancy works in your favour, giving you the best of both worlds and in the process an important month on both the romantic and relationship fronts. Held back by his retrograde phase in March, Mercury didn't return to your romantic sector until just before the Sun left while Venus, held back by her retrograde phase last year, didn't return until after he left. This means that the month begins with Venus and Mercury, the planets of love and communication still in your romantic sector. Until leaving on 7th May Mercury will work to give your heart a voice and to put heart and mind on the same page. Meanwhile, until she leaves on 15th May Venus, the planet of love will be working to make the first half of the month as romantically charged as possible. Yet even after they leave the romantic support will remain. In the meantime, while the Sun won't return to your relationship sector until 21st May, you begin the month with Mars here. The warrior planet of the cosmos has been shaking and spicing things up since mid March. Mars will leave on 16th May, five days before the Sun and Mercury return on 21st May, with no need for reality checks or housekeeping until then. This gives Mars the freedom to shake and spice things up, but also to identify any balance issues between your personal and relationship needs and begin the battle to address them.
The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of May in your romantic sector, always has and always will. This makes this the time of year when the solar spotlight is always on matters of the heart, yet what is happening here this month is anything but the norm. While Uranus, the planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected returned during the Sun's final days here last year, Venus had been and gone and while the Sun and Mercury were here, they were too far ahead to have any contact. Uranus retrograded back out a few months later but returned in March and is now here until 2026 and the impact is only now being felt. For it was just days after the Sun returned to your romantic sector over Easter that he aligned with serendipitous Uranus, for the first time here in eight decades. It will be the same for Mercury, when he returns to your romantic sector on 7th May and for Venus, the planet of love when she returns on 15th May. Held back by a retrograde phase last year Venus is late to return and this means that once she returns, she is here for the rest of the month. It is after the Sun and Mercury leave on 21st May that the real fun will begin. Venus rules through the laws of attraction and Uranus through the laws of synchronicity and they both come together in a stunning way not seen in decades, in the second half of the month. The nearly four weeks that Venus spends in your romantic sector each year always have the potential to be some of the most romantically charged weeks of any year. Yet it has been eight decades since Venus has encountered Uranus here and as he is the planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected, there really is a need to expect the unexpected. This is the reason why a New Moon here on 5th May may require some blind leaps of faith, committing to a sense of possible without knowing how. It is on 16th May, during Venus' first full day in your romantic sector that Mars will return to your relationship sector, with something special kicking in on both the romantic and relationship fronts within the space of just 24 hours, midmonth.
While the Sun's return to your romantic sector on 21st May is something that happens at this time every year, starting the month with Mars here is definitely not the norm. Mars returned in mid March, with his first visit since 2017 a chance to fire up your romantic passions and fighting spirit and getting things moving on the romantic front in a bold and confident way. Mars was a romantic drought buster and no matter where things stood on the romantic front when he returned or where they stand now, he is fighting for more. Knowing that when he leaves on 16th May he won't be back until 2021, Mars wants to see you become your own romantic warrior before he leaves. Because Mars leaves just four days before the Sun and Mercury both return to your romantic sector on 21st May, this creates a firebreak between the two and a chance to lock in his fiery and passionate energy before tamer forces take over. The Sun returns to throw the solar spotlight onto matters of the heart and all things romantic, as he does at this time every year, while as the planet of communication, Mercury returns to give your heart a voice and to put heart and mind on the same page. With Venus, the planet of love not returning until next month, the Sun and Mercury are able to take a more constructive approach to what Mars has fuelled. However, it is not until Venus returns next month that everything will come together. The Moon will move through from 6th May to 8th May and arriving just as Mars moves into his final 10 days, as romantically charged lunar vibes merge with his romantic passions and fighting spirit, sparks could fly. In the meantime, while there is no planetary activity on the relationship front you have Mercury, the planet of communication in your communication sector until 7th May and Venus, the planet of love until 15th May. Venus will be there, able to give your emotional responses and relationships a voice as the Moon moves through your relationship sector from 11th May to 13th May.
To begin with, it is business as usual on the romantic and relationship fronts this month, though with a lot more weight on matters of the heart. Yet, even so, there is little to indicate just how much the weight is set to shift onto matters of the heart and all things romantic or how truly game changing this is destined to become. You begin the month with the North Node and Juno in your romantic sector and no planets in your relationship sector. While Juno is only an asteroid and the North Node is a force rather than a planet, this gives matters of the heart an edge. The North Node is the force behind and the reason for a total solar eclipse in your romantic sector in July and Juno, queen of commitment is already helping you to set new romantic resolutions. However, for the most part, these are forces operating in the background, waiting for the right trigger. That right trigger arrives in the form of Mars, the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos who returns to your romantic sector on 16th May. This is the first fully fledged planet to reach your romantic sector since the North Node returned in November, but with a total solar eclipse just seven weeks away, this is when the run up begins. This is Mars' first visit to your romantic sector since 2017 and with the Sun, Mercury and Venus all following in his footsteps over the coming months, he returns to blaze new trails. Mars is the warrior planet of the cosmos and he doesn't follow the path, willing to bulldoze his way through barriers and take you beyond where old doubts, fears or a lack of confidence may have stopped you in the past. And returning to find the North Node has already been laying out paths for the last six months, his job will be made that much easier. This is the start of a romantic rebellion and what could be some of the most romantically charged months in several years. This makes the Moon's visit to your romantic sector from 8th May to 11th May important. Leaving five days before Mars' return, these romantically charged lunar vibes will have access to what, by then, is just around the corner and already on your over the horizon radar.
