Financial rescheduling, property rethinking, business retracted plans and a general ‘rehearsal’ feeling comes with the territory in May 2022. Box clever and have Plan B and C, Scorpio. This is shown in your natal and solar chart together. You may want to wait until/postpone until June 20th, when you are over the last loop of Mercury, the planet of paperwork and digital agreements.
You have been involved in lot of wrangling over the house, apartment, money, business, charity or valuables since February 10th, and it ends on May 15th. At least – in terms of the emotional turf. May will be a life lived backwards, in terms of your banking or budget.
Mercury is Shadow Retrograde all month in May having started the loop on April 30th. Mercury’s first backward turn in Gemini takes place on May 10th. Mercury disappears from Gemini on the 24th of May. That is when one matter may vanish, Scorpio.
We then have the utterly misleading New Moon in Gemini on 30th May as this is not a new beginning for your finances at all – it’s another attempt to finalise what is not yet final. The replay takes place from June 14th to 19th. Then, and only then, do you really get the end game, Scorpio.
I’m chiefly thinking about another long backward period here, from September 4th, 2022, to March 17th, 2023, and you don’t really want to walk backwards and get stuck in May, June, then do it again later. That is when it could become divisive, as Mars Retrograde takes over. So really watch what you are doing in May.
This action in Gemini in your solar Eighth House takes place at the same time that you have a fair bit of action in your natal Eighth House. You shine at your brilliant best, Scorpio, when you are performing to rave reviews with your handling of joint finances or property. Yet you have to work at it, sometimes, and May is all about that. Get the best advice you can afford if you need it. Get it all in writing, read the fine print and have Plan B/C.
Special opportunities or solutions emerge for your working life, academic career or voluntary/honorary role, near 3rd May, Scorpio. These are bigger from the 11th of May, when Jupiter changes signs and enters your natal First House of titles and your solar Sixth House of work and study.
What to watch? A total Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio, opposite the Sun in Taurus, on May 16th. Avoid that day, and the days either side, for anything which involves a makeover, self-promotion, online profile, advertising, publicity and so on. You will be in the dark about these matters, so pick another time. Friday, May 13th also sees the Sun in opposition to the True South Node in Scorpio. Again, this is about you, you, you. What was going on with your packaging or promotion 18 or 19 years ago? It’s back. Disguised, but it’s back. You owe a karmic debt or are entitled to receive karmic payback, then.
You need to understand the rescheduling, delay or even the cancellation risk on Mercury Retrograde in Taurus, in your natal Second House of personal income, assets, and so on. In your solar chart, Scorpio, we find Mercury Retrograde in Gemini in your Eighth House, so it happens publicly and privately!
This all began on April 27th and the financial, charity, business or property loop resumes on May 24th, so hopefully you read my big Mercury Retrograde caution dates, which I posted two years ago here, and have avoided purchase or sale paperwork, signatures on share or property contracts and so on.
I’m more concerned than I usually would be because you also have this long backward pull from September 4th until March 17th, from Mars, again in your solar Eighth House of joint finance, so there’s yet another period of back-pedalling. Really read the fine print on anything signed, Scorpio, because the chance of cancellation, delay or rescheduling is extremely high in May, June and September-March.
Mercury Retrograde in Taurus ends with the final loop on June 13th, but if you do have Taurus factors in your chart, treat this entire period as a rehearsal and have Plan B and C. Thursday the 5th of May and the days either side is likely to be an unpredictable period for you, with the Sun in conjunction with Uranus, the planet of upheaval.
This shows up in your natal and solar chart, too. May is a tremendous month of change with your ideas about holidays, vacations, business travel and commuting. In fact, it’s been going on since February 10th, when the entire world started doing deals, making compromises and dealing with reshuffles. It’s all filtered down to you, no matter if the issue has been Tesla or the airlines in a pandemic.
Do you have factors in Gemini in your natal chart? Then it is personal, Scorpio. It’s game-changing stuff, and it doesn’t matter if we are talking about the internet (Zoom), the local roads, or the airport.
Ceres remains in Gemini until May 15th so the compromising over getting around town, or moving around the region, continues until then. You also have complications, delays and flux!
Mercury is Shadow Retrograde all month having started the loop on 30th April. Mercury’s first backward turn in Gemini takes place on May 10th. Mercury disappears from Gemini on 24th May which is when a journey may vanish too. If you are even flying in a pandemic, Scorpio, you are far more vulnerable to cancellation, delay, or even the collapse of some tourism/travel business organisations, in May and June 2022. There, said it.
We then have the New Moon in Gemini on 30th May to lead you towards what appears to be a fresh start, and yet it’s just more backwards motion with transport or travel. The replay takes place from June 14th to 19th and then what is final, really is final. You’ve had this bizarre combination of a very active Pluto in Capricorn transit in your solar Third House all month, and a busy Gemini transit in your natal Third House at the same time.
This does correspond to the internet, but also to the media as well. Scorpio, if you want a simple life, you’ll fast-forward the whole thing to June 20th when Mercury has finished his loop. Otherwise, May 2022 is great for dress rehearsals, first drafts, second drafts and beta testing. Very good for research, but it will be back and forth!
