Cosmic Relief: A Brazen May Ahead

COSMIC RELIEF: A Brazen May Ahead

We are in for a fiery ride this month, folks. Aside from the intense eclipse season occurring at the beginning of the month, we have three major celestial bodies entering the spirited sign of Aries: Venus on May 2, Mars on May 24 and Jupiter on May 10. When three or more planets move into a sign, it is astrologically known as a ‘stellium,’ and these cosmic episodes often intensify the impact of the sign in which they are transiting. In the case of May 2022, we can expect the impassioned, confident, impulsive and brazen influence of Aries. Amidst the turbulent backdrop of the eclipse season, along with the second Mercury retrograde of the year, there will likely be a bit of chaos this month. 

Luckily, we have the sun passing through the steadfast and rooted sign of Taurus, which will ground us. This month, it’s important to focus on our personal stability, because the cosmic climate will be feisty and thrilling.  

Here is another cosmic playlist to help you hone in on that daring Aries energy and use it to your advantage, and some words of wisdom below based on your sun and rising signs.
