May promises to be an exciting month for the world, with a lunar eclipse in Scorpio, Jupiter, the guru changing signs into Taurus, and Mercury retrograde continuing until the 14th. The new moon in Taurus energy runs through to the full moon on June 3rd.
Passions are running high during the time of the eclipse and many of us will cast off old habits, relationships and behavioural patterns. The lunar eclipse is connected to a cycle that started last October that has come full circle and triggered intense transformation for many of us.
Now we will experience a new beginning initiated by the Solar eclipse in Aries, with the effects unfolding over several months. Watch my video on the Aries eclipse if you haven’t already done so: https://youtu.be/CjaYRi3UDiU
