Your May Horoscope for Virgo
Cosmic storms are moving in, and you’ll want to keep your schedule light as you begin the month.
A Full Moon Lunar Eclipse at 15 degrees Scorpio is due on May 5, so you don’t want to be overloaded with tasks until the eclipse delivers its message. You should be free to change plans and go in a different direction if necessary and guide others who are willing to help you. You have gone through many eclipses, but this one is strong and will bring unexpected events to everyone.
May 5 full moon eclipse in Scorpio Uranus, the planet of unpredictable news, brings the Sun in tight conjunction (both are Taurus), and will be so close that they will orbit shoulder to shoulder. Your ruler Mercury will be close to Uranus in Taurus to feel the ups and downs of this eclipse. Anytime your ruling planet is involved, you’ll feel the aspect more than most. At the same time, Uranus and the Sun are in direct opposition and a challenging Full Moon, a strong, nerve-wracking aspect.
The full moon will fall in your third house of travel, so this is not the time to set off on a trip. Your third house dictates short-distance travel, often a short hop by car, train or plane. All kinds of unexpected difficulties can arise, from mechanical problems to difficulties with the people you interact with at your destination. If you travel on business by May 5th and hope to reach an agreement with a client, that decision is unlikely. The journey to pleasure probably won’t go smoothly—especially if you’re traveling with a friend or sibling. See if you can postpone your trip until happy hour.
