This month brings the urge to merge. Win-win outcomes and advancements on joint projects are a wonderful outcome of this time especially IF you do the work to make it work
As the Sun moves through your sector of “other peoples money” things like inheritances, sweepstakes, lotto or other winnings, credit, debt, loans, venture capital, spousal money, family money, shared money etc. are all more likely to be brought into the forefront.
The stars will be strong for moving forward with firm agreements, contracts, big steps, launches, and important collaborations of every kind especially in early May. May 4 – May 11 is the most clear week for big things but there could be great striking dates in the weeks before and after that time. Make use of this energy as best as possible because the planetary energies will be moving inward and backward from mid-May through mid-December.
Mars will be retrograde from June 26, 2018 ~ August 27, 2018. The pre-transit shadow period starts May 11 and the post-retrograde shadow transit runs through October 10, 2018. Mars retrograde tends to lower ambitions and momentum so you will have more momentum in the first half of the month. If it is in your flow to do important things later in the month, follow your flow as the energy is still more clear even at the end of May than it will be as we get deeper in June and beyond.
To see an extensive list of things I love for May through Mid-December 2018 when the personal planet retrogrades dominate see my blog, Maximizing Personal Planet Retrogrades.
For arrangements and agreements that have to be made more towards the end of May, proceed cautiously, try to leave as much flexibility in arrangements to account for the changes that will very likely come soon, and know that the plans you make now may be shorter term than expected. Also, decisions made now or previously may be heavily tested over the rest of the year.
Topics of psychology, astrology, sex, power, and esoteric subjects can light up bright this month. It is a fantastic time to read, watch, or listen to a fantastic mystery, including ancient mysteries. It is also a great time to explore and prepare your space for greater intimacy.
Lovers may return from the past as may business collaborators. For those in attached romantic relationships, issues or awesomeness are equally likely to spring back into currency. There are also potentials for new love or business opportunities.
Dramatic spiritual breakthroughs are common during this transit. The more you use the energy for going deep, the more riches you will find.
If your birthday is late in the sign (or if you are reading for your rising sign and have a late degree) this report will be relevant for you later in the month, for earlier in the month you may find that the Scorpio Horoscope is more relevant for you
