Astrology for May 2020
Note for May: May is a rock and roll month when it comes to the celestial weather. We have three retrogrades that start this month and sign changes for Venus, Mercury, and Mars. As we move into Summer we depart the fiery energy of Aries for the cool winds of Gemini and begin preparing ourselves for vast healing with Cancer next month! While the retrogrades pose some challenges there are lots of great opportunities, especially for communication, this month as well.
