Libra Monthly Forecast for May 2017
Libra kicks off with the Sun in sensuous Taurus, your 8th house of sex, death and taxes. For the next few weeks the emphasis will be on your financial affairs, taking an in depth probe into analyzing your joint resources, joint possessions, corporate finances, debts, insurances, investments, mortgage, taxes and inheritances, just to name a few. Mercury will re-enter your 8th house on the 16th, helping to resolve and negotiate on money matters. Check to see if there is something amiss, correspondence, bank statements, interest rates and money owing to you. Close relationships could affect you more deeply under this transit, affecting your sensuality and stimulating you to undergo psychological changes. Your interests turn to life after death, the occult, paranormal happenings and spirituality. From the 3rd to the 5th, keep your mind on your job and accounting, as a tendency to daydream is in the air. From the 5th to the 7th, you'll feel that it's time to indulge, but restrain the urge to splurge just for the sake of pleasing yourself.
The Full Moon on the 10th comes in penetrative Scorpio, your 2nd house of personal finances, values and possessions. For May, it is often referred to as the Full Flower Moon in the northern hemisphere, as flowers spring forth in abundance. It is also called Mother's Moon, Milk Moon, and Corn Planting Moon by some Algonquin tribes. This marks a time of increasing fertility with temperatures warm enough for safely bearing young, a near end to late frosts, and plants in bloom. Wesak, also spelt Vesak, is a day celebrated by Buddhists around the world at this time. It marks the Wesak Festival, celebrating the birth, teachings, enlightenment and passing away of the Lord Gautama Buddha. It is considered the most powerful Moon of the year, when great spiritual progress can be made.
This Full Moon will accentuate your financial picture, with positive developments on the home front, through family members, real estate, contracts or rental properties. Perhaps you will benefit through a change of residence, or seal a deal on family arrangements and agreements. You'll be able to attend to joint resources, mutual possessions and your income stream through other areas. It may raise issues on inheritances, benefits, dividends, taxes and business partnership ventures. Have you been able to meet all your financial obligations, loans, debts and money owing? This is a time of emotional intensity, dramas, and highs and lows not necessarily brought on by you.
On the 20th, the Sun moves out of earthy Taurus and into Gemini, your 9th house of the higher mind. The next four weeks will have you reaching for adventure, stretching your intellectual curiosity, and finding opportunities for long distance journeys. Advanced study may be on the "To Do" list, broadening your mind with new ideals, politics, law, religious beliefs and philosophy. It won't stop there, as interests will also abound in world news, cultures and overseas business.
The 25th sees a New Moon in Gemini, your 9th house. This in fact is a Super Moon but you won't be able to see it. Your priorities will be to set your sights on new opportunities, expanding your awareness of different people and cultural diversity, travel and acquiring knowledge the best way you can. News from abroad and locally will keep your interests alive. There's a chance of publishing written work, studying a language, or doing some other study course. You will be drawn to diplomatic affairs, politics and the justice system. Don't forget your in-laws and your relationship with them. A relative's health or job, or a second marriage may come under review.
Mercury is stationary in fiery Aries, your 7th house of significant commitments, before going direct on the 3rd after some weeks of retrograde motion. You will be keen to have resolutions in place with much discussion with partners, close associates and business partners. Gather all your facts and information on legal arrangements, agreements and contracts, and fully understand any commitment. Sort out old grievances with opponents and other misunderstandings. Use your charm and talk your way through whatever needs discussion in a pleasant manner.
It won't be easy to avoid frustrations, tension and arguments from the 1st to the 13th while you breeze over recent relationship and partnership issues, hopefully for the last debate. You may even come up with new concepts that will ease any tension on legalities. During the 9th to the 13th, you'll prefer serious discussions and concentration on important topics rather than wasting your time on trivialities. There will be business to take care of, or you might prefer to chat with a relative, a sibling or a neighbour about world events.
On the 16th, the Cosmic Messenger moves forward into Taurus your 8th house, but remains in a retro shadow phase until the 21st. There's a lot of hidden tension in the air, especially when dealing with loved ones and past finance problems. Psychological analysis, or assessment and development of your skills may claim your time and attention. You may be kept busy handling inheritance, tax or insurance matters, preparing investment analysis, and allocating funds for the repayment or collection of debts. It won't help if you're feeling jealous or possessive about someone, and annoyed that they're spending and chatting more time with friends than with you.
Venus, your planetary ruler, remains in your 7th house all month after a retrograde phase. The Goddess will whip up compromises and help you reassess the needs in your relationship, repairing recent cracks in reconciliation matters, making peace with open enemies and litigation. It's time to put some love and harmony back into your relationships and work on patching up differences. Put a smile back on your face if you get rid of the annoyances, lack of interest in romance and thinking twice about commitments. From the 18th to the 21st you'll love getting the attention from that special someone. Some may experience happiness with the start of a new relationship, or making a long term commitment. From the 25th to the 27th, tensions could build up on the home front. You'll be keen to get to bottom of relationship issues as long as you can hold back on being too voluptuous and wanting your own way.
Warrior Mars remains in Gemini, your 9th house of the higher mind. This month your energy will flow in areas of personal growth through knowledge, studies, travel and expanding your mind with interesting topics, those you can learn from. You might decide to explore the world of science, world crisis forums, professional sports, and chartering unknown territories. There's a chance you could run into challenges with your belief system, and religious beliefs. From the 10th to the 14th, make sure your dealings with other people are above board, including work colleagues. On the flipside, there may be opportunities to do well with overseas business connections, publishing and marketing. From the 27th to the 31st, it is essential that you take precautions while travelling, locally and afar, and be wise with your dealings in other countries. You may even feel that you have been caught up in a snow drift waiting to go to your next destination.
The North Node/ South Node axis, known as the Dragon's Head and Tail, is changing signs. Retrograding into Leo your 11th house of friends, hopes and wishes, the True Node completes its karmic journey on May 9th, passing through the critical first degree of Virgo. The movement of the Node into Leo sets the measure of karma over the next eighteen months. The Mean Node has already moved into Leo on April 29th, but the power of the moment is undeniable.
