If something feels different this week, don’t look for any external shifts, for it is all internal. Despite the fact that the Sun’s return to a nostalgic part of your chart on Tuesday will begin the month long wind down of your old solar year, there will be little time for navel gazing. It is not just that in his first full week in Cancer, Mars is giving you the energy, drive and passion that has been lacking for a while now and more what this has tapped into. This is the first full week of an alignment that has been building all year, between the North Node in Cancer and dreamy Neptune, in an adventurous part of your chart. It was a playful Full Moon over the weekend that energised things across the personal, passionate, playful and adventurous fronts, which has now taken on a life of its own. Even starting the week with the Moon in your work sector won’t shift the dial, realising now that life can’t be all work and no play.
For you this is a month of two halves and while there are cosmic conditions unfolding all month that aren’t that clear cut, how you approach and experience the month will be. The line between the two very different halves of the month is drawn down the middle of 16th May, dividing the month into everything before then and everything after then. Until 16th May Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos is in the final weeks of a nearly two year long Mars cycle and moving through a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart is taking the wind out of your sails. Everything will be viewed through that filter, finding it hard to find the motivation and at times the energy to push yourself. This is through no fault of your own, for you are meant to embrace not fight this. For on 16th May everything will change, with Mars’ return to Cancer bringing a whole new surge of energy and motivation. Even the fact that the month long wind down of your old solar year will begin just four days later on 21st June, with Mars in Cancer and having just spent nearly seven weeks navel gazing, you’ll be ready to take on life again. This will have an impact on your month professionally, for with Jupiter in his first full month in retrograde motion in your work sector, even with Venus and Mercury still tying up loose ends on the career front you will need to pace yourself. That will change from 16th May and with Venus only just leaving your career sector on 15th May, Mars will be ready to take over from where she leaves off. In the meantime, there is a social thread running throughout the month but it is from 15th May that the laws of attraction and synchronicity will come together. This creates the potential for serendipitous moments and/or encounters during the second half of the month.
