Covid 19 Update:
No astrologer or astrological tool, including this AI-based engine, had foreseen the unprecedented pandemic caused by the novel coronavirus.
 
However, many experts were expecting large scale natural disasters to rock humanity. This is because the two most dreaded planets, Saturn and Pluto meet (conjuncts) at 22°46' Capricorn.
 
This is a rare cosmic influence, that impacts entire mankind, and should be over by February 2021. Astrologically, good fortunes shall prevail from 20th December 2020, when Jupiter meets Saturn - known as the "Great Conjunction".
 
Until then, be safe, and keep your loved ones safe.
 
How adverse is this influence for you?

  • Welcome to May 2024, dear Taurus! The beginning of the month finds you emphasizing on self-expression, appearance, and outward behaviour. You are focused on private matters and past issues, you are involved in private love life or simply enjoying yourself, and you are taking time to research and reflect upon your goals. Take some time for rest and give your ego a break!
     
    Overall, you already have a challenging time with your social life and goals. And, there is chaos of sorts (or some radical change) in your self-presentation and views. However, you stand optimistic and content regarding yourself, your personality, body image, attitude, and outlook. These are long-term trends that are expounded in Yearly Horoscopes.
     
    Also, Mr. TIOS mentions that these decan-wise horoscopes are general observations, and far from accurate. The dates and events may vary from individual to individual - as a glance at the observations for different decans would reveal. For more appropriate observations, he needs your date of birth.

  • 1st May:
    A profound effect on love life - is in the air, when the sky observes sweet Venus in Taurus clashing with transformational Pluto in Aquarius - primarily influencing your self-presentation and views. Power and control issues may arise in existing relationships. Simmering tension may come to the surface as some manipulative behavior like jealousy or possessiveness. Threats and ultimatums are possible if either partner feels smothered or controlled. An unhealthy relationship may breakdown which would be very painful or dramatic.
     You might not be directly involved in the above possibilities, and be at the receiving end of such things - or imagine, or come to know, or otherwise become aware of such things.
     This influence stays around you till 2nd May.

     
     
  • 2nd May:
    Tremendous surge of energy and passionate desires - are in the air, when the sky observes aggressive Mars in Aries connecting with transformational Pluto in Aquarius - primarily influencing your private world and psyche. This goal-directed energy is intense yet well-regulated, giving endurance and stamina. Once you have decided on a course of action, you will keep going with determination until you reach your goal. This day favors tackling hard projects that seemed too difficult to achieve earlier. There will be no procrastinating and you can stay focused with ease. Something deep inside is driving you, a primal kind of survival instinct.
     You might not be directly involved in the above possibilities, and be at the receiving end of such things - or imagine, or come to know, or otherwise become aware of such things.
     This influence stays around you till 5th May.

     
     
  • 3rd May:
    Transformational Pluto turns Retrograde (backward-moving) in air sign Aquarius, afflicting your occupation and public image. Fated events and repeating themes will reinforce on your controlling habits, compulsions, addictions or prejudices that must be eliminated - especially in matters of your career, reputation, ambitions, and social standing. This is a time of reflection about power and control in your life. If people have controlled or are manipulating you - then now is the time to let them go. If you have been too controlling of others or situations - then it is time to let go. This is not a time for power tripping but a time for elimination.
     As with all outer planets, this period causes relatively less concern than the rarer inner planet retrogrades like Mercury, Venus, and Mars retrograde cycles.
     This influence stays with you till rest of the month, and beyond.

     
     
  • 7th May:
    Patience, perseverance and a strong work ethic, as also sense of duty and serious attitude - are in the air, when the sky observes mighty Sun in Taurus connecting with strict Saturn in Pisces - primarily influencing your self-presentation and views. This is a good day to complete serious or difficult tasks - and an excellent time to meet your goals. Younger people may seek out your wisdom and this is also a good time to ask for professional advice or that of your elders.
     You might not be directly involved in the above possibilities, and be at the receiving end of such things - or imagine, or come to know, or otherwise become aware of such things.
     This influence stays around you till 9th May.

     
     
  • 8th May:
    New Moon in - arrives today at 3:22 AM, and lands on your private world and psyche! New Moons are introspective (unlike Full Moons which are public). It is an emotional time to get in touch with your senses. A potential for renewal, or renewed emphasis, presents itself - with heightened sensitivity in your inner self, spirituality, charity, compassion, and private life.
     This is a period of review, letting go, and recharging one's spiritual and, by extension, physical "batteries". Focus, now, is on fulfilment through service, empathy, and awareness of other’s needs; but it can also be a time of withdrawal and some sort of retreat in a social sense, depending on your personal and natural predisposition. Some kind of soul-searching is in order, and the urge to find some level of emotional peace of mind will be apparent. This is a more sensitive position of the New Moon, and it is best to find some sort of peace for the soul in preparation for the New Moon in the first house a period that is more active and busy than this one.

     
     
  • 13th May:
    Excitement, unexpected change, freedom, and rebellion - are in the air, when the sky observes mighty Sun in Taurus meeting chaotic Uranus in Taurus - primarily influencing your self-presentation and views. You should feel a strong urge to break free from routine, doing something totally different from your normal activities. To avoid restlessness and nervous tension, it is better to be active and look to do something out of the ordinary, and not wait for change to happen to you.
     You might not be directly involved in the above possibilities, and be at the receiving end of such things - or imagine, or come to know, or otherwise become aware of such things.
     This influence stays around you till 15th May.

     
    Furthermore - Serious and true love, and also resolutions and investments - are in the air, when the sky observes sweet Venus in Taurus connecting with strict Saturn in Pisces - primarily influencing your self-presentation and views. With an existing partner, you will look for reassurance or more commitment, but will also be dutiful about making them happy and content. New relationships are possible but you will not be interested in one night stands. Even though love is important, you will take a practical and common sense approach. This especially applies to solving any recent difficulties.
     You might not be directly involved in the above possibilities, and be at the receiving end of such things - or imagine, or come to know, or otherwise become aware of such things.
     This influence stays around you till 14th May.

     
     
  • 16th May:
    Persistent and tactful Mercury in Taurus meets your personal Sun. You are especially sharp, communicative, and open at this time. This is because your wants are aligned with your thoughts. It’s a favourable time for solving problems. What you say or write now has impact, for better or for worse! You are likely more interested in talking about yourself than in listening to others. This can be a very busy, communicative, or even hectic day.
     
    And then - Tactful Mercury, that is persistent and purposeful in Taurus, enters the sector of your personal chart that rules yourself, your personality, body image, attitude, and outlook. This is a period in which you are most inclined to speak up about matters that you previously were only mulling over. Your disposition is more intellectual than usual now, and self-expression comes easy. You are sharper than usual–more observant, and more inclined to “live in the head”. Relationships with siblings, neighbors, classmates, and casual friends may become more prominent in your life now. It is likely that you will initiate discussions during this period, evaluate your appearance and the impact you have on those around you, and make contact with others rather than stay chained to any one place or activity. This is the time to be direct and to communicate your needs and interests. You are more inclined to talk about yourself and your personal past now. This may also be a restless time when it is difficult to turn the thinking process off when it would be better to relax! It is an especially fruitful time for any endeavor that requires dealing with words, ideas, and facts and figures. Your demeanor is more youthful, perhaps mischievous, lighthearted, and non-threatening so that others may be more inclined to turn to you for advice or pleasant conversation. Using the power of words to attract what you want or to further your interests works best for you now.
     This influence stays with you till rest of the month, and beyond.

     
     
  • 17th May:
    Larger than life personality - is in the air, when the sky observes mighty Sun in Taurus meeting optimistic Jupiter in Taurus - primarily influencing your self-presentation and views. Today is a day to be outgoing, optimistic, generous, and feel lucky and proud with great self-belief and confidence. But again, the potential exists for taking things too far, and becoming self-righteous, judgemental or overzealous.
     You might not be directly involved in the above possibilities, and be at the receiving end of such things - or imagine, or come to know, or otherwise become aware of such things.
     This influence stays around you till 20th May.

     
    Moreover - Deep thinking and intense interactions, as also challenge to thoughts or experience, or some crisis - are in the air, when the sky observes tactful Mercury in Taurus clashing with transformational Pluto in Aquarius - primarily influencing your self-presentation and views. Even if you focus on a bland topic or moderate point of view, there is a risk that you will use extreme or coercive methods to express your thoughts. The more extreme your idea, or the more force you use to convince others, the more criticism and conflict you will meet.
     You might not be directly involved in the above possibilities, and be at the receiving end of such things - or imagine, or come to know, or otherwise become aware of such things.
     This influence stays around you till 18th May.

     
     
  • 18th May:
    Change and excitement with love or money, or both - are in the air, when the sky observes sweet Venus in Taurus meeting chaotic Uranus in Taurus - primarily influencing your self-presentation and views. Your increased need for stimulation can lead to sudden changes, or you may be subject to unexpected changes around you. If things have become stagnant and routine with a partner, then you are more likely to rebel or do something to put the relationship at risk. If single then you have an increased chance of scoring, and internet dating suits this aspect.
     You might not be directly involved in the above possibilities, and be at the receiving end of such things - or imagine, or come to know, or otherwise become aware of such things.
     This influence stays around you till 19th May.

     
     
  • 19th May:
    Heightened sensitivity and ability to read people and situations, and also enhanced intuitive or psychic abilities - are in the air, when the sky observes mighty Sun in Taurus connecting with dreamy Neptune in Pisces - primarily influencing your self-presentation and views. Greater empathy and receptivity by both you and others, means that all of your relationships will benefit from a shared understanding that may be non-verbal. Do not discard insights that arrive in your dreams!
     You might not be directly involved in the above possibilities, and be at the receiving end of such things - or imagine, or come to know, or otherwise become aware of such things.
     This influence stays around you till 21st May.

     
     
  • 21st May:
    Mighty Sun, that is fun and fast-paced in Gemini, enters the sector of your personal chart that rules your money, possessions, self-worth, living standards, and comforts. The Sun highlights this sector for the next few weeks, and your focus is on material affairs and comfort issues. Security is a driving force for you right now, and you might find that you are especially interested in accumulating possessions. What you have and what you don’t have come into focus–what makes you feel comfortable, your sense of security, and what you value. This is the time of year when personal finances and possessions receive maximum attention. Pour your energy into your work and your finances, and you might just be able to take your ideas to the bank. Extravagance with your pocketbook is something you may want to look out for, however. If you find yourself itching to make unnecessary purchases, know that at the root of this urge is the desire to pamper and comfort yourself. Nothing wrong with it, but there are inexpensive (and even free) ways to make yourself feel good. This is not the most eventful time of year for you. You are more inclined to dig your heels in and hang on to what makes you feel most secure than to take big risks.
     This influence stays with you till rest of the month, and beyond.

     
     
  • 22nd May:
    Intense and deep experiences, as also research and investigation - are in the air, when the sky observes mighty Sun in Gemini harmonizing with transformational Pluto in Aquarius - primarily influencing your finances and self-worth. You will have greater power and influence over your own life, allowing for positive transformations. You can also exert this greater power and influence over the events in your life and over the people around you. Personal or professional problems can also be more easily resolved now.
     You might not be directly involved in the above possibilities, and be at the receiving end of such things - or imagine, or come to know, or otherwise become aware of such things.
     This influence stays around you till 24th May.

     
    On this same day - Harmony, ease, good fortune, and growth - are in the air, when the sky observes optimistic Jupiter in Taurus connecting with dreamy Neptune in Pisces - primarily influencing your self-presentation and views. You can relax while at the same time enjoy personal or professional success. This is also a spiritual enlightening phase of life which gives you a good overall perspective of who you are and your place in the world. You can better align yourself and your goals with your spiritual philosophy or religious beliefs. Growth and good fortune are possible through further education, group activities, travel, and acts of kindness and charity.
     You might not be directly involved in the above possibilities, and be at the receiving end of such things - or imagine, or come to know, or otherwise become aware of such things.
     This has a longer term impact, influencing general yearly trends.
     This influence stays around you till 30th May.

     
     
  • 23rd May:
    Full Moon in - arrives today at 1:53 PM, and lands on your private world and psyche! Full Moons are public (unlike New Moons which are introspective). It fairly bursts forth with energy. The emotional proclamations made now appear new and unrefined, simply because they are expressed as a burst of energy that has not yet been rationalized. Yes, they can be "loony" and sometimes "infantile", but the surge of emotional energy can spur us into healthy action nevertheless. Even though the emotional energy associated with the Full Moon seems new because it is so raw, it’s only the expression of it that is new. The truth is, the desire for change has been sitting with us for a while now, but we haven’t yet had the energy or impetus to do anything about it. That is the beauty of the Full Moon! Still, we need to be aware that there is a tendency to project our own state of restlessness or frustrations onto others. We are especially emotional now, and need to avoid blaming outside circumstances or other people for our own frustrations. An abrupt illumination will present itself - with a need for validation in your inner self, spirituality, charity, compassion, and private life.
     Circumstances are such that you have an overwhelming need to be alone. You have been busy lately with all sorts of everyday activities, deeply involved in your work and routines. It is time to balance your life with some down time otherwise, you simply don’t feel whole. Issues come to light that originate from deep within. It is an excellent time to get in touch with what's been brewing beneath the surface. A secret or private matter may be revealed, a health matter could come to light, or a work project can reach culmination.

     
    Furthermore - Love and money, as also harmony and happiness - are in the air, when the sky observes sweet Venus in Taurus meeting optimistic Jupiter in Taurus - primarily influencing your self-presentation and views. You do not have to strive, struggle or work hard. This is a time to enjoy the benefits of the good karma accrued from your previous good deeds and hard work. Beautiful things are attracted to you. It is your inner harmony, warmth, and friendliness that is so attractive.
     You might not be directly involved in the above possibilities, and be at the receiving end of such things - or imagine, or come to know, or otherwise become aware of such things.
     This influence stays around you till 24th May.

     
    Again - Passionate romantic encounters and beautiful creative expressions - are in the air, when the sky observes sweet Venus in Taurus connecting with dreamy Neptune in Pisces - primarily influencing your self-presentation and views. You can enjoy increased sensitivity in sexual relations with your partner and may discover imaginative ways to increase your erotic pleasure. This is also a good time for dating as your increased magnetic allure will attract a tender and caring person, quite possibly a genuine soul mate or spiritual partner. This is a good day for shopping for clothes, cosmetics, jewelry for yourself plus anything to decorate your home or add luxury to your life.
     You might not be directly involved in the above possibilities, and be at the receiving end of such things - or imagine, or come to know, or otherwise become aware of such things.
     This influence stays around you till 24th May.

     
     
  • 24th May:
    Sweet Venus, that is flirty and curious in Gemini, enters the sector of your personal chart that rules your money, possessions, self-worth, living standards, and comforts. As the natural ruler of this sector of the chart, Venus feels right “at home” here. This is a rather content position for Venus, although there can be some restlessness when it comes to money and spending it–you are more inclined to want more things around you! Financial security and enjoyment of the good things in life are important to you, although you also value simple pleasures. The ability to relate well with others might enhance your own personal finances during this period. You may find yourself in a position in which there is a blending of financial matters with social or public affairs. This is a stable position for love matters and close relationships. You value those who make you feel comfortable, and familiarity is more important to you than someone new during this cycle.
     This influence stays with you till rest of the month, and beyond.

     
     
  • 25th May:
    Intensity and passion, but also obsessions and fascinations - are in the air, when the sky observes sweet Venus in Gemini harmonizing with transformational Pluto in Aquarius - primarily influencing your finances and self-worth. You should feel more deeply about loved ones in general but especially your partner. This is a good time for intimate relations due to your increased desire for love and affection. Not only relationships, you may also be drawn to a particular style of fashion, cosmetics, jewelry or tattoo. This is a good day for decorating your home or office.
     You might not be directly involved in the above possibilities, and be at the receiving end of such things - or imagine, or come to know, or otherwise become aware of such things.
     This influence stays around you till 26th May.

     
     
  • 26th May:
    Optimistic Jupiter, that is inquisitive and communicative in Gemini, enters the sector of your personal chart that rules your money, possessions, self-worth, living standards, and comforts. During this Jupiter transit, you are likely to see benefits to your earning power and value system. Jupiter in this part of your chart should bring a profitable and productive year. You are likely to feel more confident and enthusiastic about your ability to earn a living, and you may choose to develop your talents in order to boost your earning power. Your income is likely to increase, and there may be an opportunity to improve your future financial situation. However, you may also be just as inclined to splurge on yourself, plumping up your nest or your store of personal possessions. Monetary problems from the past may clear up during this period. You can add to your possessions, and a major purchase or sale is very possible. A significant gift or bonus may come your way. Benefits now are tangible, physical ones. There is a sense of abundance, and feeling worthy is integral in attracting good fortune. In fact, self-worth is really what the second house is about. Expectations of receiving one’s fair share come now, and this tends to attract abundance and favors. This is a good time to go for a raise, apply for a loan, or take part in various dealings with financial institutions. You may need to curb an inclination to overspend–feeling good could bring you to the stores as you temporarily forget about the future! Particularly if Jupiter trines planets in the sixth and/or tenth houses, this is also a very favorable period for success in the work you do.
     Please remember that Jupiter alone does not give results, your karma does! Jupiter merely gives you the wings to fly - even if, in your imaginations.
     This influence stays with you till rest of the month, and beyond.

     
     
  • 28th May:
    Clear thinking, good judgment, and organization skills - are in the air, when the sky observes tactful Mercury in Taurus connecting with strict Saturn in Pisces - primarily influencing your self-presentation and views. Catching up on paperwork, studying and research will also benefit from increased concentration and a good memory. Business dealings are favoured with this being the ideal day to sign contracts or enter into negotiations. Long-term investments and real estate are especially favoured. Making long-range plans is also a good idea now because of common sense and practicality.
     You might not be directly involved in the above possibilities, and be at the receiving end of such things - or imagine, or come to know, or otherwise become aware of such things.

     
     
  • 31st May:
    Stimulated thinking, unexpected news, and excitement in interactions and daily routines - are in the air, when the sky observes tactful Mercury in Taurus meeting chaotic Uranus in Taurus - primarily influencing your self-presentation and views. The electrifying influence on your brain makes this an ideal day for any mental or creative work requiring originality. Routine study and concentration are likely to be disrupted because you are more easily distracted. Errors in judgment and spelling mistakes are more likely. Remain conscious of the tendency to become distracted when driving or using machines.
     You might not be directly involved in the above possibilities, and be at the receiving end of such things - or imagine, or come to know, or otherwise become aware of such things.

     
    Furthermore - Increased power and influence - is in the air, when the sky observes optimistic Jupiter in Gemini harmonizing with transformational Pluto in Aquarius - primarily influencing your finances and self-worth. You have the opportunity to use this power to positively transform your own life, your environment, and the lives of other people. You will feel in control of situations, and may find yourself in positions of power or authority in group settings. The biggest gains during this influence come from maintaining high morals, and not acting selfishly.
     You might not be directly involved in the above possibilities, and be at the receiving end of such things - or imagine, or come to know, or otherwise become aware of such things.
     This has a longer term impact, influencing general yearly trends.

     
     
  • Best wishes for May 2024, as always! The overall monthly trends, along with relevant minor transits and their influences are detailed below for further reference.

 
OVERALL MONTHLY TRENDS
 

 
Central Focus, Consciousness for May 2024
Sun represents our concious mind - our will to live and our creative life force. It is the basis of our core personality, our style, our ego, our life purpose, and some might say, even our destiny. Sun's transit illuminates the area of your life that it touches (influences), drawing your focus along with it. It stays in each sign for barely a month, as it covers the entire zodiac in 365.25 days.
  • Sun, the luminary of self, continues to illuminate the sector of your solar chart that rules individual personality and projected self - until 20th May. During this influence, you focus on yourself, and seek to bring issues surrounding your personal identity, appearance, outward behavior, and self-expression to the forefront.
    + Show Details
    Till 20th May, Sun transits your House I: Individual personality and projected self.
     
    During this cycle, you experience a renewal of energy and vitality now, and it is a strong time for increased personal confidence.
     
    Issues surrounding your personal identity, appearance, outward behaviour, and self-expression are brought to the forefront. This marks the peak of your physical solar cycle, and you are in the position to make an impression on others, and to assert your personal influence. Spontaneity of expression is what this transit is about. You are ready to put your past behind you and to start a new personal cycle. You have presence and you project confidence. Increased energy and a renewed feeling of confidence is with you now, so take advantage. It's a great month to do something entirely new and pioneering—to go solo in some area of your life.
     
    This particular season of the year smiles on your personal endeavours. This is a time when you more easily get in touch with a true sense of your identity and purpose. The most enterprising side of your nature surfaces, and it's time to seize opportunities. Existing problems in your life may be overcome now by bravery and a straightforward approach to your life.
     
    The emphasis is on self-expression, what kind of impression you make on others, and beginning new personal projects. Personal projects that you begin now are likely to blossom nine months down the road. You are a little more self-centered than usual, and this is quite natural and healthy. There is nothing wrong with a bit of self-centeredness during this cycle, but avoid taking it too far. It is not the best time for teamwork and other cooperative endeavours. You are more decisive and forward-looking now, and you put more faith in your own abilities.
     
    The spotlight is on you and your ability to lead, so make it a good one! Take steps to improve how you come across to others. It is time to carve your own path in life.
  • From 21st May onwards, Sun spotlights the sector of your solar chart that rules money, possessions, and values - for the rest of the month. During this influence, you focus on your possessions, and seek to emphasize on material affairs, comfort issues, and accumulating possessions.
    + Show Details
    21st May onwards, Sun transits your House II: Money, possessions, and values.
     
    During this cycle, your focus is on material affairs and comfort issues. Security is a driving force for you at the moment, and you might find that you are especially interested in accumulating possessions.
     
    What you have and what you don't have come into focus - what makes you feel comfortable, your sense of security, and what you value. This is the time of year when personal finances and possessions receive maximum attention. Pour your energy into your work and your finances, and you might just be able to take your ideas to the bank.
     
    You are more attracted to objects and possessions that give you a sense of comfort, status, or luxury now. Extravagance with your pocketbook is something you may want to look out for, however - you probably should be on the lookout for a tendency to create your own financial stress due to extravagant spending habits. If you find yourself itching to make unnecessary purchases, know that at the root of this urge is the desire to pamper and comfort yourself. Nothing wrong with it, but there are inexpensive (and even free) ways to make yourself feel good.
     
    At this point in the year, you are unlikely to take many risks, however, and you can be quite resistant to change. This is a time when "comfort zones" are more important to you than usual - you value the familiar. This is not the most eventful time of year for you. You are more inclined to dig in your heels and hang on to what makes you feel most secure than to take big risks.

 
Love, Social Life, Comfort, Pleasure for May 2024
Venus represents two main areas of our life - love and money. It is the basis of our sentiments, what we value, and the pleasure we take in life, our tastes, our pleasures, our artistic inclinations, and what makes us happy. Venus' transit graces the area of your life that it touches (influences), drawing your sensations and experiences along with it. It stays in each sign for less than a month, as it covers the entire zodiac in 225 days.
  • Venus, the planet of luxury, continues to grace the sector of your solar chart that rules individual personality and projected self - until 23rd May. This influence boosts your personal magnetism, making you pay closer attention to your physical appearance and mannerisms.
    + Show Details
    Till 23rd May, Venus transits your House I: Individual personality and projected self.
     
    You could find it hard to deny yourself anything during this cycle!
     
    This is a time when you naturally let loose your softer, receptive side. Romantic matters, as well as pleasure-seeking activities, come to the fore now. Something about how you present yourself, your image, and your manner boosts your personal magnetism during this cycle. It's a good time to attract who and what you want into your life experience.
     
    You are more likely to pay closer attention to your physical appearance and mannerisms, aiming to improve and enhance your attractiveness. Others find you especially agreeable and cooperative. You're more charming and you are likely to want to attract things to you indirectly rather than forcefully now, perhaps through charm and playfulness.
     
    You have a stronger need to be good to yourself, although a negative expression of this placement can be excessive attention to pampering oneself or taking the easy way out. You especially enjoy making a good impression on others, and peace-making. You might also be paying more attention to beauty and style now.
     
    You are more gracious, well-behaved (superficial, if you are not careful), and likeable now. Take advantage!

    24th May onwards, Venus transits your House II: Money, possessions, and values.
     
    There can be some restlessness when it comes to money and spending it - you are more inclined to want more things around you!
     
    Financial security and enjoyment of the good things in life are important to you, although you also value simple pleasures. You might receive gifts or bonuses now, or you find much comfort in what you already own and have. The ability to relate well with others might enhance your own personal finances during this period.
     
    You may find yourself in a position in which there is a blending of financial matters with social or public affairs. This is a stable position for love matters and close relationships. When it comes to love, you value those who make you feel comfortable and secure. You value those who make you feel comfortable, and familiarity is more important to you than someone new during this cycle.
     
    You may be a little extravagant with money for the time being, as your desire for luxury and comfort items is increased now, and this is something to watch for.

 
Communications, Connections, Transportation for May 2024
Mercury represents our day-to-day expression and communication. It is the basis of the way we think, the way we connect with others, and the way we communicate with others - decidedly unemotional and curious. Mercury's transit intellectualizes the area of your life that it touches (influences), drawing your thought-process along with it. It stays in each sign for almost a week (except when retrograde), as it covers the entire zodiac in 88 days.
  • Mercury, the planet of interactions, continues to focus on the sector of your solar chart that rules privacy, spirituality, and spheres of life that is beyond our control - until 15th May. This influence makes you focus on private matters and past issues, requiring a certain amount of solitude to get your thoughts together.

    Till 15th May, Mercury transits your House XII: Personal life, privacy, and spirituality.
     
    You are paying more attention to unspoken or hidden elements of any circumstance!
     
    Your mind is focused on private matters and past issues - this is a time when you are least likely to speak out of turn or to express yourself freely. You are searching behind the curtain, and examining the past for answers. You are seeing all sides to any given story, and forming a definite opinion does not seem "right" for the time being. Thoughts turn to the past, and clear decision-making does not come easily.
     
    This is a good time for research, quiet contemplation, and meditation; but do avoid getting dragged down by issues that have outgrown their worth and purpose. Examining the past in order to improve the future is certainly worthwhile, as long as you don't waste your energy on guilt.
     
    Creative endeavours could prosper now, particularly those that draw upon the emotions or that require creative visualization skills, such as poetry, art, acting, and other such activities. You are likely to require a certain amount of solitude in order to get your thoughts together or to be mentally productive.
     
    You are less likely to chat indiscriminately during this transit, and tend to be a little secretive or tight-lipped for the time being. This may be important, in fact, because this position is sometimes associated with the uncovering of secrets, so discretion may be in order.
     
    It is a strong period for gaining different perspectives on problems or issues in your life, as well as for reflection and research, but not the easiest time for presenting your ideas.
  • From 16th May onwards, Mercury enlightens the sector of your solar chart that rules individual personality and projected self - for the rest of the month. This influence makes you more communicative than usual, more interested in expressing yourself than listening.

    16th May onwards, Mercury transits your House I: Individual personality and projected self.
     
    During this cycle, you are more communicative than usual. However, this doesn't necessarily mean that conversations are at their best right now, simply because you are more interested in expressing yourself than listening!
     
    You are most inclined to speak up about matters that you previously were only mulling over. Your disposition is more intellectual than usual now, and self-expression comes easily. You are sharper than usual - more observant, and more inclined to "live in the head".
     
    It is likely that you will initiate discussions during this period, evaluate your appearance and the impact you have on those around you, and make contact with others rather than stay chained to any one place or activity. This is the time to be direct and to communicate your needs and interests. You are more inclined to talk about yourself and your personal past now. This may also be a restless time when it is difficult to turn the thinking process off when it would be better to relax!
     
    Relationships with siblings, neighbours, classmates, and casual friends may become more prominent in your life now.
     
    It is an especially fruitful time for any endeavour that requires dealing with words, ideas, and facts and figures. Your demeanour is more youthful, perhaps mischievous, light-hearted, and non-threatening so that others may be more inclined to turn to you for advice or pleasant conversation. Using the power of words to attract what you want or to further your interests works best for you now.
     
    You are especially alert and a little cerebral now. You have a receptive audience for your ideas.

 
Energy, Drive, Courage for May 2024
Mars represents our energy, action, and sexual desire. It is the basis of our spontaneous reaction to act, and our survival instincts - the animal instincts for aggression, anger, and survival. Mars' transit asserts the area of your life that it touches (influences), drawing your natural desire along with it. It stays in each sign for almost two months, as it covers the entire zodiac in 1,9 years.
  • Mars, the planet of vitality, continues to energize the sector of your solar chart that rules privacy, spirituality, and spheres of life that is beyond our control - for the entire month. This influence makes you research and reflect upon your goals, when asserting yourself in a direct and straightforward manner can be difficult.

    For the entire period, Mars transits your House XII: Personal life, privacy, and spirituality.
     
    This is the time to research and reflect upon your goals!
     
    Asserting yourself in a direct and straightforward manner can be difficult. This is largely due to a feeling of not being in touch with what it is you want or desire just for the time being as you reassess your goals and needs. This lack of direction and self-knowledge should prompt you to look within to learn about your desires. It can be a time when past actions catch up with you - and this is not necessarily a bad thing!
     
    It could also be a time when much of your energy is channelled into private matters, or when you prefer that others not observe what you are doing. This is natural that you may just as well do your best work alone for now. Unconscious behaviour patterns could influence the way you assert yourself.
     
    Some may experience insomnia during this phase, especially if they are not allowing themselves the chance to recoup and if they are not letting their intuition serve them. Others may enjoy a more active dreaming life (this includes day-dreaming), and, if allowed to run free, the imagination can serve them very well, especially with regards to goals and new concepts.
     
    For the time being, take some time for rest and give your ego a break.
