May – Standing Up to Your Demons
The sun will be in Taurus and in a quincunx aspect to Sagittarius through May 21st. It will continue to encourage you to change your life circumstances if you need to. After May 21st it will move into your opposing sign Gemini where it will be in an oppositional position. It is in this position once each year. As you might expect from the name, you can expect some hostility during this time. You might experience personal attacks, as can often happen during a square position, and you’ll need to work hard to counteract them. How did the great Roman writer and philosopher Cicero put it? The greater the difficulties, the greater the victory.
Time for a Career Change?
Mercury will start off the month in Aries and in a very good position, so your business-related and intellectual work will be highly favored. You should use this time as well as possible. Living with the stars means taking advantage of opportunities. On May 13th Mercury will move into the sign Taurus to form a quincunx aspect. This aspect will encourage you to think about making any necessary changes in your professional life. You just have to have the courage to talk about your issues. On May 29th Mercury will move into your opposing sign Gemini and into an oppositional position. That means you might see disruptions in your career and professional life.
Keep Shopping in Check
Venus is the third planet in opposition to your sign, and will remain there through May 19th. You might not be the best lover during this time. Instead you’ll be more moody, which can happen when the planet is in opposition. Minor annoyances can crop up here and there, you’ll have a major tendency to waste money, and you might experience misunderstandings in your family life.
As we’ve seen, this is a time when you might see the darker side of life. That’s how things typically are when Venus is in opposition to your sign. Thankfully this period will be over on May 19th, after which things will slowly improve.
Mars Brings Courage
Mars will still be in Capricorn and forming a secondary semi-sextile aspect. It won’t deliver powerful or even noticeable energy during this time. It will deliver this energy, however, after May 16th as Mars moves into the sign Aquarius to form a positive sextile. You’ll get back in the swing of things after that, be much more interested in your work, feel a lot more energy, and be much more courageous and much more willing to take risks. Nothing ventured, nothing gained is the Sagittarian’s motto during this time.
Jupiter, the planet of happiness, will be in Scorpio through November 8th. This means it will form a secondary aspect of a semi-sextile for Sagittarians so you shouldn’t expect much support from it now. This will definitely be the case after November 8th, when Jupiter enters Sagittarius. This only happens once every 12 years. But who knows: it might send Sagittarians a few gifts along the way during this time ...
Saturn will also form a semi-sextile for Sagittarius throughout the entirety of 2018, meaning it will only have a weak effect. That’s good news. Saturn does have to do with karma after all. Even if it’s forming a positive angle, you should expect it to remind you of past errors – ones you might be making again from time to time.
