May Money ‘Scopes by Jasmine Wolfe
Your usual go go go attitude is going to be faced with a couple road blocks this month, and by “road blocks” I mean naps. You know what it feels like to run against some really strong winds? Yeah that’s you at the start of May. But hey, maybe it’s just the universe telling you to sit the f down and put your money where your mouth is. Venus enters Taurus on the 15th; this is a good time to practice saving your money for the right moment. You’re being called to release your fears around money and success at the end of the month with that Scorpio full moon, but what does that mean for you? It’s going to require extra effort on your part to figure out what needs to be released, it won’t come naturally. It’s also ok if you are still confused by this on the 18th when Luna is nice and full, just be present and forgiving. The first 3 and the final 3 days of the month will be lucky for you, so you’ll have those highs to carry you.
May is your time to shine Taurus! The moon will be in Taurus on the 3rd, 4th, and 5th bringing with it a new rejuvenated energy… one you can use to do all the things you love the most: control the situation, complain about being in charge, eat take out, crush your goals despite being thought of as lazy, take a nap after hitting said goal, etc. By the 15th of the month the Sun, Mercury, and Venus will all be in Taurus. So utilize this time to focus on being your high vibe self. High vibe Taurus knows what they want and also exactly how to get it. The full moon on the 18th is all about releasing that which no longer serves you and it’s in your opposing sign of Scorpio, so release an obsessive thought surrounding your money. The 31st will be a lucky money magick day for you.
You are being called to slow down in the first two weeks of May. Be thoughtful with the words you use and the way you spend your money, which is easier said than done. Be on the look out for career opportunities on the 6th and 7th. This time of slowing down should be used to put some thought into your bigger plans and goals. Whether they be business plans or that big summer camping trip you’re going on, your plans need your undivided attention… well, as undivided as you can manage. By mid month you’re going to feel frustrated and a little confined; it’s ok to cry about it. With Mars moving into Cancer around the same time as the Scorpio Full Moon it’s a good idea for you to spend time connecting with water; take a bath, walk alongside a river, catch moon water, scry into a glass of La Croix. On the 21st the Sun and Mercury are conjunct in Gemini, giving you a much needed boost of energy to sail into the tail end of Spring.
Taurus season is second only to your own sun sign season, my little cutie crabs. The New Moon on the 4th is a good time for you to call in new ways of deepening your foundations. Think about your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual security at this time. The 8th, 9th, and 10th are days of action for you, so don’t be afraid to go after what you need to in order to find that aforementioned security. Mars moves into Cancer on the 16th making your usual modes of passion particularly magnetic. Let your emotions drive you to new heights. Recognize that having feelings is your super power! Release the negative stories you have about money on the Scorpio Full Moon on the 18th. I know that Cancer horoscopes always talk about crying, but this water moon is a great time to cry in the fetal position, dance in a creek a midnight, or scream into a cup of tea. Emotions can be released in many ways, and if anyone understands that it’s you, Cancer.
I’m not gonna lie my little lion cubs, this is going to be rough month for you. I tell you this so that you can mentally prepare and handle it like the bad ass that you are. That Taurus New Moon wants you to relax and allow space for more structure in your life, but structure can hold you back from expanding to your fullest potential, right?!? How can you balance your need to be open to all possibilities with the grounded structure of Taurus? That’s the work this month. On the 15th Venus moves into Taurus and you may find that you want to blow your mid month pay check on an over priced bikini or some other luxury item. Instead you should save that paper for something even better, something worth waiting for (did someone say Vegas pool party?) The Scorpio Full Moon on the 18th is asking you to go deep and release an unhelpful narrative around money. Going deep isn’t your favorite thing, but it is necessary. By the 21st you’ll be feeling more expansive and curious with the sun and mercury in Gemini.
With lots of Earth and Water in the air this month you’ll be feeling super charged and ready to tackle that lengthy list of to do’s, Virgo. Use the Taurus New Moon on the 4th to create a wealth intention. How do you want to grow? What do you want to add into your life? Dream big because this is a moon phase that particularly speaks to you and your ability to create perfection on this earthly plane. In the final days of Venus in Aries you’ll be riding a powerful wave of luck that will culminate on the 15th. Luck is wasted if not utilized though. Venus in Taurus will help you distinguish when you need to save and when to invest in yourself. Mars might be in fall in Cancer but it’s a placement you understand. The latter end of the month is the perfect time for you to focus on how you heal your friends/ family/ community/ the world. Use the Scorpio moon on the 18th to scale back your work load. The idea is to work smarter not harder.
Taurus might share your planetary ruler but there are more than a few misunderstandings between the signs, and so misunderstandings are going to follow you this month. But by the 21st your communication skills will flow with ease and grace as per usual; you’ll need to account for some extra necessary tact for the first 20 days of the month. Frustrations in work and business will likely make you more emotional than usual by the time Mars moves into Cancer on the 16th, but the moon will also be in Libra on that day, so a beautiful opportunity may come if you allow your emotions to flow freely. Full moons are always about releasing that which no longer serves us, so use the Scorpio moon on the 18th to release a negative mindset around your career. On the 21st the Sun and Mercury move into fellow air sign, Gemini. It is then that you are being called to integrate the lessons of the first 3 weeks of this month.
Ah, Taurus season, a time when you’re more inclined to spend your money on your favorite guilty pleasures. Scorpio, you probably understand money better than anyone in the zodiac, don’t forget that this month! Use your opposing sign to learn how to better invest in yourself, particularly on and after the 15th when Venus enters Taurus. Your ability to understand people is heightened when Mars enters Cancer on the 16th, so use that knowledge to your best benefit. In fact the 15th through the 18th is a super charged time for you, so if you have any big plans or deals on your to do list, I’d suggest working on them in that time frame. I don’t need to tell you what to release on the Full Moon on the 18th, you will already know. Set an intention and be specific. Handle any important conversations before the 21st or else you may find yourself entangled in more than one lie.
There is a serious slowing down that’s happening this month and that might be a lot to ask of you. Taurus might be an archetype that feels very distant and confusing for you, but try to use it to focus on the details of your life. You’re a big picture person, but you’re being called to focus on the small day to day stuff, especially when it comes to money and structure. Practice making to do lists and finding joy in checking things off. You might not be sure what to release on the Scorpio Full Moon on the 18th but if you can spend sometime alone taking a nice long bath or relaxing shower it might reveal itself to you. And even if it doesn’t, be proud of yourself for taking some alone time; you can tell everyone about it when Mercury goes into Gemini on the 21st. An important conversation will take place at the end of the month with someone younger than you, so take note.
Call in all the money and success this month, Earth Babies! You love a long goal, so set a big one on the 4th when the moon is new in Taurus. Venus moves into fellow Earth sign, Taurus, on the 15th. You’re usually the type to save rather than spend but the gift of Venus in Taurus is the realization that you need to invest some of that hard earned money into yourself to make true progress. Mars enters Cancer on the 16th and it’s asking you to nurture your existing projects. Give some much needed heart and soul to your goals and watch them flourish. You love Scorpios and feel very comfortable within the darkness of a Scorpio moon, so on the 18th make sure to set an intention around releasing things that no longer serve you in your career. This is a powerful manifestation energy so be very specific and intentional. Be on the look out for interesting new opportunities on the 21st, 22nd, and 23rd of the month.
With all of the earth and water signs taking over the sky this month, your usually articulate and matter of fact way of dealing with things is not going to work in your favor. You might not be the most emotive sign but you are deeply empathetic, so fall on those laurels this month. The Taurus New Moon on the 4th is a good time to look at the structures in your life. If you run a business this is the time to call in growth. If you want to start a side hustle, now is the time to put plans into action. With Mars going into Cancer on the 16th you’ll want to focus on how to water your garden. Slow down and take care of all of your passion projects and dreams. On the 18th when the moon is full in Scorpio you’ll want to look into how you spend your money, a hard choice may have to be made, but you can do it my little space babes. You are in charge of your abundance! By the 21st the Sun and Mercury will be in Gemini and this will have a number of new and exciting opportunities fall into your lap so long as you are showing up and doing the work.
The New Moon in Taurus on the 4th is probably going to make you want to sleep as opposed to call anything new into your life. I dare you to indulge in your 5 senses at this time and allow this exploration to open new pathways to growth in your life and business. When the planet of love and money also goes into Taurus on the 15th you’ll know exactly what to do: make an investment or create an action plan in regards to your money. You might not be where you want to be financially, but this Venus phase is going to help you bring roots to your goals. With Mars going into Cancer right before the Scorpio Full Moon on the 28th, you’ll be feeling comfortable and ready to use your natural powers of empathy, healing, and artistic ability to your best benefit. Use the moon phase to dive deep into the negative mindset you may have around money. Money isn’t evil, can you believe that? Be on the look out for something special to come your way on the 26th, 27th, or 28th.
