The Sun brings attention to your 10th house this month. The 10th house rules your work and career. This transit could bring hard-won recognition. It could also bring scrutiny from yourself as you look at your work and see if it matches what you really want to do. In the case where you are not really excited about your field of work or workplace, you may be very motivated to make some strides towards changing that.
Employment changes or the process of considering a change or looking into options are all more likely at this time. Be open to the possibility that although stress and uncertainty may be brought by these changes, there could be opportunities to create more of the life you have envisioned for yourself that you were too hesitant to jump into without the intense provocation or other incentive that could come now.
The Suns placement in this sector could bring some insights into your true calling and luck in finding a more perfect match.
New opportunities or ones from the past through ideas, clients, contacts, or anything else could help in a big way. This is a great time start (or continue) to put together your plan for changing directions. Taking steps in the backdrop, experimenting with a new path, and researching/gathering information are well-supported at this time.
If you already love your work you may find you are extra-excited now about it and could be entering a Renaissance Period with your work. Past labors can show up now in major ways. Opportunities, projects, or contacts from the past can resurface with new life. Opportunities can come in suddenly or things planned in the past could work out in a wonderful way now.
Prepare to be busy and have a focus on business, getting organized, taking care of practical necessities in the forefront.
The area of the chart that is accentuated now also rules your reputation out in the world. Your name and work might become greater known during this transit 🙂
For those who are retired or for whom ‘work/career’ isn’t relevant, and also for all others still in the workplace, the 10th house focus may cause you to be asking for or finding insights about your higher purpose. Contemplation about a plan that would put you on a path where you feel ‘on track’ is great use of the potentials of this month and education and looking into options are great ways to use the the energies so there is plenty of room to explore, wonder, and dream, as well as looking deep into things relevant to your higher work in the world all month and beyond through the year. Even if you can’t see exactly where you are going, taking obvious steps that present themselves now can feel very fulfilling and lead you on a powerful path of positive change. It is an amazing time to ‘try things on’ and experiment. Something exciting to say YES to could come up that brings you great joy.
Since this house also rules father energy, you could find yourself focusing on your dad (or other father figure), or some situation of note may come up involving him. Maybe is going through something and he needs help or he could be assisting you in some way. It might be a good time to check in with him or work on your relationship in some way.
May 2022 brings us back into the internal and retrospective energies of Mercury retrograde. All of May and the first half of June are covered in this fog that can bring confusion, miscommunications, and changes to plan, but can also bring in high creativity, clearing up unfinished business and increase the chance of last minute magic.
While you will be drawn to act this month, the best actions are ones that focus on the short-term, or are low stakes, experimental, and flexible.
ECLIPSE SEASON IS STILL HERE, which is a several month period where negative karmic patterns can clear quickly and your wildest dreams can manifest, but to open the space for the new, some big goodbyes may occur.
April 30 brings a solar eclipse at 10° of Taurus and May 16 brings a lunar eclipse at 25° of Scorpio. The Taurus/Scorpio eclipse cycle started at the end of 2021 and its influence runs through the end of 2023. See my Eclipses in Taurus video to see how you may see it manifest and see my Eclipse in Scorpio video for info on what you may see from this one.
Continued strong Aries energies bring zest, decisive action, bold decisions, and inspiration. The Aries energies can also bring aggression and arguments so tune and and pick your battles wisely.
Taurus influences bring motivation to get things done, get organized, and take care of things that have been bogging you down. It is a time when much can be accomplished in a short amount of time and it is good to take advantage of the powers of focus (especially earlier in the month) as they will soon give way to the distractedness and extra busy-ness of Gemini.
Gemini energies bring the desire and means to be mobile and connect with others. Travel, writing and other expression, and communication with others will be prolific. You will feel as if you are spinning in a whirlwind and this continues through most of June.
Jupiter Conjunct Neptune in Pisces is a very rare transit that influences from March through May with the strongest influence in April. The last time these planets got together in this sign was 1856! See my detailed video to understand the potentials of the connection.
Jupiter Sextile Pluto is also influencing from April – June with its strongest potentials May 1-5. Check out my detailed video to understand this rare connection.
