Set your compass for a new direction
Big up those dreams
Get ready for expansion, freedom and opportunity!
Surprise developments around your work, career or public image could see you in the spotlight in some way during the start of May, Leo. Optimism, luck, expansion, travel and big loves beckon as Venus enters your 9th on the 2nd. This is but a taster of what’s to come, Leo. Ruler the Sun meets Uranus on the 5th in your on show 10th house. The Sun will move on to meet the North Node also in here on the 13th which could open up a new cycle of achievement and recognition for you. If you’ve done the work – expect the rewards now. Or the ability to begin in an exciting fresh direction.
There’s also freedom on offer in a way it hasn’t been for 12 years this month. But the key to making the most of this is to remain mindful of your reputation at all times. Walk the royal walk and above all, talk the talk. No matter where you go or in whose company you find yourself- act like you belong, Leo. Because you do. This May is all about making self-doubt a thing of the past and embracing the truth that You Rule.
That royal career progress to date can now be leveraged if needed. It’s important over the next few weeks to take the time to look at your path, purpose and achievements to date. Even has you head towards something so much more expansive and uplifting. The 10th brings you two key events. Mercury will retrograde in your 11th and then on the 23rd, return to your 10th giving you plenty of opportunity to reassess your goals and re-purpose that path if needed for even bigger achievements.
However, this pales into insignificance next to what is the biggest astral event of the month – if not the year for you, Leo. The 10th also sees Jupiter return to its ruling 9th house in your chart for the first time in 12 years. The world is your oyster when it comes to travel, doing business in a big way, exploration, learning, freedom, solutions and opportunity!
Where do you want to go? What do you yearn to have or experience? Jupiter in here tells you its time to think big and to prepare to venture away from what you know into that place where the magic happens. Changes may occur to make way for this. Either self-initiated or organically especially across the 16-18th when you have a total lunar eclipse in your 4th (16th) and a Mars/Neptune meeting in your 8th on the 18th. I will have more to say on this in a moment.
Jupiter in its ruling house is at its most optimistic and generous. You will be feeling you can take on the world and that those big dreams are not so impossible after all. Travel especially the long distance kind, should feature between now and October and again at the start of ‘23. Even if you don’t go far, the world may seek you out. This could also be linked to learning, study or expanding your knowledge of the world on some level. The people you encounter now and the places you go open up your horizons. There’s also an opportunity to break free from a cycle by using this and the Mercury retro to apply all you have learned to your current situation and heading towards the different choice or destination.
Deep feelings emerge under this month’s full Moon in your 4th on the 16th.. This full Moon is known as the Flower or Blossom Moon. It brings with it a total lunar eclipse which combined with the Mercury retro-factor means we are in the dark in a key area. What we feel may not tally with the facts. This eclipse can be seen across a wide area of the globe. South America will have the best view and if you are there you will be able to see the entire event. Western Europe will see the whole of the total phase while a swathe of Africa from East to West, will see it leave.
Family values, living arrangements, your roots, security and also ownership of your own pathway or future are the areas where you need to probe any shadows. Feelings of insecurity need to be acknowledged, but don’t allow these to send you spiraling into a distinctly un-regal clinginess or feelings you have to resort to emotional manipulation to get your needs met. Instead take a heart-felt approach and ask directly or simply share what’s on your mind.
The shadows of an eclipse hang around usually two days before and afterwards. So please stay connected to that ‘gut’ feeling during this time. If you are faced with unexpected endings or events which push your buttons, don’t try to take refuge in denial or run away. Take it they have purpose you don’t yet know, gather that royal courage and face them head-on if they occur around the eclipse period which also brings that Mars/Neptune conjunction I mentioned earlier (18th).
Your ruler is now on the move into your future shaping 11th on the 21st. Just remember to keep those Mercury retro rules in mind as it does. In focus for you – friendship and goal revivals. Reach out to people you have not had contact with for some time. This includes those business and professional connections too. Look to your goals and check for continued relevance and also now you have a new appreciation of all you can offer, resources and new pathways to attain them.
Mercury lands back in your 10th on the 23rd while Mars powers into your 9th on the 24th. Now is the time to make those moves you may have been planning or thinking about for a while. Please if traveling now don’t rush. Venus enters your 10th turning you into the candidate or object of desire from the 28th. This is now a time to work what you have like a boss. Showcase everything from that sexiness to those smarts, Leo. This house does not just rule your professional status but your personal one too. The one that got away could even reappear now.
Second time around opportunities or the gateway to a bigger experience could be on offer on the 29th when Mars and Jupiter meet. This is asking you to accept or have the courage to step on through. Remember – you will never know unless you do. The 30th offers an opportunity to head firmly in the direction of that vision, dream or goal as the new Moon appears in your 11th. Have you been in this position before? Where you were offered the chance to attain something you desired or invited to enter a new circle? Did you hesitate, accept or refuse, Leo? No more prevarication. Take that leap and soar into the wide open horizon that awaits you.
In a nutshell: A ‘No limits’ cycle begins this month as Jupiter arrives in its ruling 9th in your chart, Leo. You’re about to venture out in a fresh direction that may involve unknown territory for you. One thing you do know however – that’s where the magic happens!
