The Sun will roll through your 9th house this month activating your interest in places far away and sense of adventure. Travel yearnings abound and in instances where you can’t make a journey physically, stepping into being an “armchair warrior” will do, where watching, reading, or listening to others’ adventures can help fill that void for travel. Another fun way to bring the energy of different geographies into your own without leaving your town is to have culinary adventures with “theme” nights with cooking from different countries and cultures.
This is a fantastic time to learn or deepen knowledge of another language 🙂
Potentials for long-distance or international travel are especially amplified at this time. But the odds are greatly increased that any travel adventures, near or far, await. While this time holds many great potentials for travel from the astrological perspective, of course, the manifestation of these potentials will be dependent on world and your local circumstances. To whet your travel appetite for the future and have more support and resources for trips you would love to take at some point, check out my travel blog AstrologyKissedTravelBliss.com
The Sun’s movement through your 9th house can also activate spiritual studies or church-related activities. Inspiration and optimism often accompany this transit so have a notebook ready for the great ideas and insights that will roll through you. Opportunities to step up your participation in Spirit-driven activities will be more likely at this time.
The desire to learn will likely be strong this month. Going on a ‘library bender’ is a fantastic way to use this energy. Courses of study and education of any kind could be a great use of the current and upcoming energy. This could be an amazing time to take courses of study for hobby, self-development, or professional reasons.
Intuition will be strong and favoring it over logic may prove extra fruitful now.
Writing, publishing, and public speaking projects are lit up BEAUTIFULLY at this time!
The draw to teach may be very strong now and favors creation of curriculum or other offerings. The house lit up for you now is also the house of publishing and public speaking. Opportunities in these arenas could come up now and the transits now could bring in big news and big opportunities. Some of these will have some tilt to the past but there are also wonderful possibilities for totally new ideas and ventures.
The 9th house that is highlighted for you this month is all about asking bigger questions and finding transcendent solutions. Imagine looking at any issue in your life from the top of a mountain. The view from this perspective can often bring solutions not thought of before. Albert Einstein said, “We cannot solve problems with the same line of thinking that created the problem.” Take this idea to anything that ails you at this time and watch the magic 🙂
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.
