Astrological Themes in May for Scorpio

With strong energy for all Scorpios in your 7th house, there continues to be a focus on relationships this month. For those born early in the sign, the Sun is passing through your 7th house at the beginning of May and brings the opportunity to gain new perspective by seeing things more clearly in your love life, especially as we are in the final phase of Venus retrograde and will be clear of the post-retrograde shadow period by May 19th.

For those born in the second half of the sign, the Sun is still in your 6th house at the beginning of the month, however Mars is in your 7th house which means there is still a strong focus on relationships for you as well although with a slightly different tone. Mars, the god of war, brings the possibility of aggression into your love life, perhaps manifesting as having a shorter temper or more frequent arguments with your partner, or feeling an intense need now to work through long-standing issues. With the Full Moon in your sign this month, Scorpio, emotional pressure can definitely intensify around May 10th, so be mindful especially in the first half of the month – you may find a short-tempered quip gets you into a heated argument, or that long-suppressed feelings suddenly come to the surface now, forcing them to be addressed – be ready to face a confrontation if its needed, knowing that relief, honesty and greater trust can be the outcomes.  Also, as the Sun passes through your 7th house, a little later in the month, you will also start to gain clarity on where you stand in your relationships.

For those born in the first half of the sign, you have the possibility for a new opportunity, or an improvement to come up related to your health, to day-to-day routine or around the home especially as Mercury comes conjunct with Uranus on May 9th.  For those born in the second half of the sign, the Sun in your 6th house is helping you focus on your career, your day-to-day routine as well as any health issues that need to be addressed. There is also more activity focused around your hobbies right now, with the possibility of taking up a new creative pursuit. If you are looking to expand your family, there is also a greater potential for conceiving this month, especially around the time of the full moon!

While this can be a good time to get organized and to line up all the details of your key plans, try to wait if you can to make final decisions ‘official’ (for example, not making financial commitments or signing contracts) until after May 21st when we are clear of the Mercury retrograde (and post shadow) energies.
