May Astrology Forecast: Rewriting the Story of Your Life

May Astrology Forecast: Rewriting the Story of Your Life

Let your conscience be your guide. Positive disruption continues throughout the year (Jupiter/Uranus squares). Things become unhinged. Dismantled. Reorganized for the better. May has it’s rocky moments, but it’s the best month of the year to pivot and rewrite the story of your life. Pick a new daily discipline to be your anchor in the morning and evening for the next 31 days.

It’s true, whatever isn’t evolving, is dissolving: relationships, alliances, jobs, communities, and projects. We are creating new roles and perspectives or being stifled by our old ways. Support follows in mid-June after our second ‘gong’ crash (Saturn/Uranus square), and happier Skies return. Our free digital calendar shows you the celestial play by play with descriptions of daily transits every month, or purchase a copy you can download to your device for easy access for the whole year.


1-Universal Month in a 5-Universal Year: Motivation

Focus. Clarity. Vision. You’ve got drive and determination on your side. New beginnings, new identity, new logos, new awareness, and Universal Oneness prevail. Coexist. Conundrum: Watch out for me-first attitudes, but don’t be afraid to put yourself first. Did you know you have a personal number each month too? Scroll to the end to get our tips for calculating it and working your own magic. 



Embracing Change

We are continuing to adapt to unexpected changes as the second Saturn/Uranus square approaches in June. Covid vaccines are one of many lightning rods we are seeing that have a polarizing effect. The numerology this month suggests we can coexist with different opinions. Do what’s best for you: live and let live.

Two Retrograde Cycles

Saturn backtracks into Aquarius on the 23rd while Mercury retrogrades into Gemini on the 29th. Retrograde cycles give us the opportunity to rethink and rework ideas. Is there something you’re being stubborn about, or would benefit from having a different set of eyes on? Check out Sasha’s comprehensive article + horoscope for how to optimize Merc retro this year.  

Gemini Season: The Reflection in the Mirror

Mercury, Venus, and the Sun float into Gemini, the sign that rules education, sign language, learning, communication, siblings, hands, lungs, shoulders, duality, and overall brilliance. This boost in the sign of the twins is a huge opportunity to pause, pivot, and rewrite the story of your life. 

Mercury spends ten weeks in Gemini, clocking some of that time in square to Neptune. This cycle is conjunct June’s Eclipse in Gemini. We are getting a preview, but of what? Gather information, keep conversations rolling, get different angles to process ideas. Book a tarot repatterning session to get to unroot old scripts that don’t need to be running your life anymore.

What’s Next

June 20, 2021 – the blessing of service + devotion [Hanuman]
Jupiter ℞  in Pisces: Jupiter in Pisces gives us a cosmic blessing. As Jupiter retrogrades, the planet can act like a mini-Saturn in the skies. How can you incorporate more discipline and structure into your spiritual life? Regular meditation, yoga, vegetarian diets, and connection with like-minded people become an important part of your routine. Be sure to thank your lucky stars each night – what you focus on expands.

June 24, 2021 – the road less traveled
Saturn ℞ sextile Chiron: In some people, the roads you’re traveling are leading to forced healing. In other people, there may be a fear of authority, including personal power. Either way, the advice here is to stay true to yourself and take responsibility for yourself.
