Turn back time and retake that path
Discover the hidden truth around love
Second chances say it’s never too late
The path not taken reopens for you this month, Taurus. And you’ve the gift of discovering just what it would have held for you had you taken it. It’s not so much a back-tracking as an opportunity to begin again but armed with all the knowledge and experience you’ve accumulated in the meantime. The past reappears to be re-shaped, re-imagined or simply re-framed for release and healing.
It is of course the ancient pagan festival of Beltane on May 1. May 2 brings us the first glimpse of the new Moon which marked the end of April and also the end of Ramadan. The 2nd also sees ruler Venus slide into your 12th like a shining beacon of light and resurrection. This is an eclipse month and within it is entangled hidden truths around a partnership – past, present or potential.
You also have Mercury retrograde in your 2nd and returning to your sign on the 23rd. This tells you to be extremely wary of new undertakings – especially around love this month. You may not have the bigger picture or be able to peer through the clouds of illusion. What you can and should focus on is anything you have been putting off tackling. Or accepting that opportunity to re-take that missing pathway.
It’s never too late to begin again especially when you remain in your birthday cycle up until the 21st. Be prepared to be set up for surprises and opportunities this May to move away from what confines and traps you. This can occur as early as the first week as the Sun meets Uranus in your 1st on the 5th. Chances are you are by now craving the new, novel, exciting and a juice injection when it comes to love or finding an outlet for your passions. Uranus always wants to evolve our souls. So, don’t hesitate if enticing directions appear now.
For the new to begin, you have to clear away the old. Whether this entails old wounds, a healthy dose of (self) forgiveness and anything which no longer works for you – from beliefs to connections.
This month’s full Moon in your 7th on the 16th 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.
What will leave for you is the end of a cycle around a key relationship. This process begins days before the eclipse with the meeting between the Sun and the North Node in your sign marking both the closing and the new beginning of a long term karmic cycle. This can even see singles exit that Love Sahara as this eclipse shadow clears, and the end of being single. However, please for now keep in mind what I said earlier. Take that time with new beginnings. All is not yet clear.
Venus continues to work its subtle magic in your 12th linking you to your creative streak, unleashing your imagination and psychic abilities. You are now set for a peak energy cycle where you finally tackle tasks your have been putting off with valour and fearlessness free from illusion. Or you step out of limitations and dare to follow that dream that’s been tugging at your heart for far too long.
The meeting between Mars and Neptune in your 11th just two days after the eclipse (18th) shows you the way to take action towards fulfilling that goal. Heed it now as the Sun shifts into your self-worth boosting 2nd from the 21st. Ideas based around how to boost this, work this or attract abundance rule now so ensure you align your desires to this freshly baked sense of self-worthiness! Mercury returning to your sign on the 23rd enables you to adjust that personal message accordingly.
The end of the month offers you one of the best opportunities to re-take that path or to reclaim your heart’s compass and reboot your direction as Mars enters your 12th and meeting Jupiter on the 29th.. Making it impossible for you to continue with anything that doesn’t ring true or to resist not breaking free of what restricts or binds you if you are offered the opportunity to do so. You may realise all that was keeping you stuck were your own fears. You act with love and yes – that self-love too now ruler Venus in back in your 1st from the 28th.
The new Moon in your 2nd on the 30th allows you to say what needs to be said or inspires you to act in a way which simply reinforces those beliefs around what you deserve to have from here on in. If you discover second chances, the opportunity to explore the path not taken, or can opt for that change or release empowered by acting with or on love, don’t hesitate this month, Taurus.
In a nutshell: Embrace some mysterious magic that allows you to reframe the past or retake the path you missed, Taurus. The combination of Jupiter in your 12th and ruler Venus in your sign this May tells you second time opportunities may be heading your way!
