Cancer, you are ruled by the Moon, so we pay more attention to lunar patterns with you, than the other 11 signs of the zodiac. It’s very likely that in your natal chart you have factors in Taurus and/or Scorpio, so the forthcoming eclipse in those signs will leave you in the dark about your finances for a day or two. Don’t fall for it on Monday, May 16th.
The Sun is involved in a Total Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio. You’ll have a blind spot, or there may even be a cover-up. To let the world catch up with itself, avoid Sunday the 15th and Tuesday the 17th of May too. As I said, the impact on your finances is more pronounced if you do have Taurus and/or Scorpio factors. But even when we look at your solar chart, we find Saturn sitting firmly in your Eighth House of joint finance.
Friday, May 13th also sees the Sun in conjunction with the True North Node in Taurus and in opposition to the True South Node in Scorpio.
What was going on 18 or 19 years ago with your money, possessions or property, charity commitments or business, Cancer? Again, this is more important if you do have natal factors in Taurus and/or Scorpio, but karma must be paid, or settled. You may be owed, or you may owe.
As I said, the fact that all this is taking place in the wider world, and you are also experiencing Saturn in Aquarius (until March 2023) suggests to me that the larger lessons everyone is experiencing in relation to taxation, income, property and so on – have a personal narrative for you. Intensely personal.
There is also a local, national or even a global learning experience involving friendships and groups of all kinds – from clubs and teams, to charities, political parties and bands. Once again, you are drawn into it. Your micro story is part of the macro story, with serious Saturn in the sign of brotherhood and sisterhood – Aquarius.
In your solar chart, this is an area ruled by Taurus, and therefore the patterns of May 2022 are complicated; delayed; obstructed; rewritten in June.
To avoid being hoodwinked or led astray, use astrology. (Allow a day either side). Avoid the total Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio, opposite the Sun in Taurus, on May 16th.
We have a backward turn again from Mercury in Taurus on May 22nd. What was ‘agreed’ or in writing, or online, with friends and groups will reverse, stall or even be scrapped, Cancer. This goes all the way back to April 2022, and the final outcome will not be settled until June 13th.
The entry of Venus in Taurus on May 28th suggests that friendships and groups of all sorts, are far more intensely personal from that point. If you are single, seduction may be part of the story, at least until June 23rd. If you are an adulterer (Venus was unfaithful) we could say the same thing.
All in all, friendships and groups are a local, national, global lesson to be learned in May. To avoid having that lesson played out too heavily in your own life, Cancer, just watch those dates I’ve mentioned.
As Ceres enters Cancer and your natal First House on May 16th, it looks like a compromise or carve-up is on the way for your image by July 23rd, with those matters most affecting your title, profile, reputation, appearance, self-promotion and so on, at the heart of a new beginning.
In fact, the final fortnight of May, well into August, suggests a relaunch and rebirth for you. Ceres can bring a lot of emotion and high feeling. Try to sidestep that if you can, Cancer, because it will make the relaunch process easier.
You also have long transits in your Twelfth House, which rules your psychic, psychologist or psychiatrist. It also rules your religious faith. On a more esoteric level the Twelfth House can rule dream interpretation, the I-Ching or the Tarot. It certainly rules hypnosis and astral travel. Whatever or whomever is invisible but utterly central to you, is what May is about.
This is a going concern in 2022 and also 2023, partly because you keep going backwards and forwards with it, for such a long time.
Ceres, with all the compromises you have made, and all the deals you have been making with God (to quote Kate Bush) remains in Gemini until May 15th. By that date you will have figured out some kind of new arrangement – with yourself!
Despite this, things take ages to come together. Mercury is Shadow Retrograde all month having started the loop on the 30th of April.
Mercury’s first backward turn in Gemini takes place on May 10th. Mercury disappears from Gemini on 24th May which is when the new arrangement with your own soul or psyche, also disappears.
We then have the New Moon in Gemini on 30th May. That is not a new beginning; it is an attempt at one – you still have a lot to sort out, Cancer. The replay of that long, long discussion with your own soul or psyche takes place from June 14th to 19th.
Cancer, this is a going concern all year, because Mars Retrograde goes over the same ground, from September 4th, 2022, until March 17th, 2023.
If you have anything at all in Pisces in your natal chart, then this is tremendously important. Your lifestyle, perhaps your career, is far more influenced by your solitary, invisible or secret world than anybody knows – except you. This year is about an opportunity to find a solution, or go higher and further, for you. It begins with this rather muddled, messy period in May and June.
