Keep your values positive for your values become your destiny. Mahatma Ghandi

This month the focus is on Venus-ruled Taurus and the question of value and values, both materially and metaphysically.  The May energy theme is about clarifying values. The Taurus archetype is about security.  This energy can tend to make us hold on to what we have because our possessions give us a sense of security.

The first major planetary happening was the Scorpio full moon (Sun in Taurus/Moon in Scorpio on May 4).  This full Moon/Sun opposition formed a T-square with Jupiter in the signs of Taurus/Leo/Scorpio.   I am in danger of sounding like a broken record here, but once again the planets are asking you “What are your values? Are you holding on to someone or something because of deep (Scorpio) security needs (Taurus)?  How are those possessions helping or hindering your creative self expression (Leo)?  “What benefit are you getting from holding on? “  Only you know the answer.  Valuing our possessions  is not detrimental.  Only when our possessions own us does it become a problem. The planets this month will give you a big push and a lot of help in finding out what you truly value.

It is especially important to meditate on these questions during the time when the Sun is in Venus-ruled Taurus.  Venus is the “Wealth Goddess.”  She rules our relationship to money and possessions, and she influences our personal charisma and the things that we desire.  On May 6 the Sun in Taurus forms an easy trine to Pluto in Capricorn.  This is more value stuff.  Capricorn rules how we are seen in the world, especially the world of commerce (your career, your banker, your boss and other authority figures in your life).  How do they see you?  How does that fit in with your own, very personal values.  The Sun/Pluto trine will stimulate your thinking about this all-important topic.

On May 7 Venus enters Cancer linking the dominant Venus theme not only with Taurus, but now also with Cancer.  The emphasis now is not only on material items and security needs (Taurus), but also on emotional needs (Venus in Cancer).  You may feel that you are not getting enough support from others and that you need more comfort in your life.  Your feelings of vulnerability around these issues could be at an all time high.   Though uncomfortable, it is cracking open your shell (Cancer) to find the vulnerable, secret self inside that has the true answers of what you need (Cancer) and value (Venus) emotionally (Moon).

Look for things to speed up when Mars enters Gemini on May 12.  Mars was somewhat subdued in its transit through Taurus, but will activate and move things along as it transits Gemini.  You may have an abundance of ideas now, though you may not stick with any of them long enough to make a difference.  Saturn will temper the full-speed-ahead Mars impulse somewhat when it opposes Mars on May 15.  You may ease back on “doing” at this time.  Mars/Saturn can bring a time of working very hard with little concrete reward.  Ask yourself if you are being productive or only “spinning your wheels.”

May 16 could be a very romantic day when Venus in Cancer trines Neptune in Pisces.  Help Cupid along by sending a special note of appreciation or love to someone you care about.  On the downside you may be looking through rose-colored glasses, so be aware that if something seems too good to be true, it may not be true.

There is a New Moon at 26 degrees Taurus on May 17.  The new moon is usually a good time to begin something new.  However, because Mercury goes retrograde tomorrow at 13 degrees Gemini, it may be best to begin a new project only in your head or to put your ideas down on paper for further study.  That way, the ideas will ripen and become more practical during the Mercury retrograde incubation period.  When Mercury resumes direct motion after June 11, you can put your ideas into action with a good chance of success.

Most of you who follow astrology know that Mercury retrograde can bring snafus regarding communications and electronic gadgets, misplaced or lost items and missed appointments.  Surprisingly, Mercury retrograde can also be a time when we can find something that we previously lost.  Use this time to look inside yourself for insights on something that has been puzzling you.  Also, when Mercury squares Neptune on May 28, you may find that you are tuned into the cosmos in a way that opens your psyche and allows creativity and amazing insights to flow.

When Venus opposes Pluto on May 21 the theme of value and values takes on deeper meaning.  Surface answers will no longer suffice and deep soul searching may be the order of the day.  Then on May 22 when the Sun opposes Saturn a sense of practicality dominates allowing you to put your insights into a practical framework for action.

Finally on Memorial Day when Venus squares Uranus and Mars squares Neptune you will be fairly bursting to use new-found inspirations to make a move toward something new and fresh.

Truly, this is a month to:
  • clarify your values and what you value,
  • listen to your ideas and spend time fine tuning them,
  • go inside to find deeper meaning,
  • add a layer of practicality,
  • be open to inspiration, and
  • activate and move forward when Mercury goes direct on June 11.
Have a wonderful month as you move toward your value-driven destiny!
