The L.A. Taco Horoscope for May 2019

[dropcap size=big]L[/dropcap]ively up your minds, Angels. May brings mental inspiration to all signs. Back up your wacky plans with action on the 4th when a New Moon lands in get’r-done-Aries. On the 18th, a Blue Moon in Libra adds diplomacy, aiding and abetting your project with persuasive language. And when cerebral Mercury aligns with the Sun on the 21st, enjoy a flurry of ideas. You may find a creative solution to a knotty problem. Taurus moderates, infusing your brainstorm with love. (As always, all phenomena listed are visible in L.A. skies.)

Aries (March 21 – April 20)

I can say this, Ram, May will not bore you. Expect a celestial Vitamin B-12 shot right in your constellation May 4th when you host the New Moon. Ideas flow and you may set some new goals. Your mental energy remains strong all month. Keep your focus and get shit done. When the Moon aligns with your ruling Mars on the 7th, financial discipline is supported. It is a good day to make a new budget. Feel manic mid-month. Mercury aligns with wacky Uranus in Aries (May 8th) generating more crazy ideas.  So get weird. And a third planetary alignment in Aries (Venus and Uranus on the 18th) add spice to your love life.

Taurus (April 21 – May 21)

Turn on your love light, Bull. You ruling Venus takes up residence in romantic Pisces May 2nd, where it aligns with the Moon. This planetary combo lets love reach its cosmic, spiritual and physical climax. So you have that going for you. The good vibes dissolve on the 7th when the Moon aligns with Mars in your constellation, making the Bull see red. I pity the fool that cuts you off on the 110 that day.  But your short temper won’t last long. By the 21st, Mercury lines up with the Sun in Taurus. Ready yourself for profound transformation of headspace.  Brainy Mercury literally graduates from a morning to evening planet, if you are looking for it. The transition lends sparkle to your thoughts. Enjoy the idea storm.

Gemini (May 22 – June 21)

Ever see Jodorowsky’s Holy Mountain, Gemini? Because you are about to live it. The twins merge into one super-identity this month when the Moon aligns with Mercury in mystical Pisces (May 2nd) linking the conscious and unconscious minds. Support the cosmic merger by laying low as you are extremely sensitive to other peoples’ vibrations. On May 4th, a New Moon in your Career House brings fresh goals. Act on them. (Aries lends energy.)  On the 8th, your ruling Mercury aligns with Uranus, producing unconventional, but worthwhile, ideas. And when your ruling Mercury aligns with the Sun in your House of the Subconscious, expect insights on disrupting old emotional patterns. This May, use the mind to transcend the mind.

Cancer (June 22 – July 22)

Linger long on love street, Cancer. May begins with a Venus-Moon alignment in romantic Pisces, supporting travel. Get up and go, and pack a full heart. This planetary combo promotes a spiritual response to beauty. Concerts, art, and nature fill you up. Feel fit, fine, and fun on the 13th, when the Alpha-Scorpiid Meteor Shower peaks adds energy to your Health Sector. You may as well use that gym membership you pay for. On the 18th, a Blue Moon in Libra activates your House of Love. This is the big love, the one that holds the stars in place, so take a breath of thanks and enjoy your place in the  cosmos.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

May reminds the zodiac why you are king of beasts, Leo. Motivation is high. You approach goals like they are juicy gazelles. On the 4th, the New Moon lands in your Career House.

Love up your family, your sweetie, your dog – whoever it is you come home to. Short on brainpower? A Blue Moon in Libra strengthens arguments May 18th. Persuasive language will be your strong suit. Use it on behalf of others.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Protect your Goddess Vibes, Virgo, and stay grounded this May. When your ruling Mercury aligns with the Moon in your Partnership House, you will be more nurturing than usual (May 2nd). But it is a lot of work to keep the trains running on time, and you won’t manage it without rest. On the 4th, a New Moon lands in your House of Transformation. This is a power placement: you can effect profound inner change if you prioritize some me-time. Take a hike. Meditate. Receive a welcome boost in energy mid-month when the Alpha-Scorpiid Meteor Shower brightens your House of Communication (May 13th). Speak truth to power. (This meteor shower will be pretty, so check it out.) A Blue Moon in Libra supports Personal Income May 18th. Can you be diplomatic about money for the interest of the whole family? I think you can. Is it hard to be the mother-hen of zodiac? You sure make it look easy.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Get ready to get things done, Libra. A New Moon in Aries (May 2nd) activates your House of Transformation, supporting new projects, new goals and new growth. The Alpha-Scorpiid Meteor Shower brightens your Income House on the 13th, bringing much needed funding in the nick of time. Get reflective mid-month when a Blue Moon shines in your constellation (May 18th). This lunation supports diplomacy. Take up the concerns of those around you. When Venus aligns with Uranus in your Transition House (May 18th), the closing of one door opens another. Walk through it into your future.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Ready for your next collab, Scorpion? A New Moon lands in your Partnership House on the 4th, presenting a business opportunity. It could be profitable, too; on the 7th your ruling Mars aligns with the Moon in your Joint Income Sector. (Keep a cool head, though. An emotional outburst could ruin this chance for you.) Your best day this month is the 13th, when the Alpha-Scorpiid Meteor Shower blasts your constellation with celestial awesome sauce. Get a spoon and eat it up. Self-confidence and happiness are supported. The Blue Moon lands in your Karma House May 18th. Can you recognize any patterns of self-sabotage?  Name what holds you back and stop doing it.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Feeling robust, Archer? Sagittarius is quite the specimen this month. May is big on health. The New Moon lands in that sector on the 4th, supporting fresh starts and the physical body, so it is time to start using that gym membership you pay for. Mid -month, get out and play with friends. The Alpha-Scorpiid Meteor Shower brightens your Community House that day, and you will benefit from social activities. On the 18th, the Blue Moon activates this same sector. Like it or not, you have emerged as a leader in your tribe. On the 20th, your ruling planet Jupiter aligns with the Moon, infusing all your endeavors with good old human kindness. Watch your mood on the 22nd. Grumpy Saturn lands in your constellation, where it pairs with a moody Moon. Like all things, this too will pass.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)

You better make a dentist appointment, Capricorn. The vibes are so sweet this month, the Sea-Goat might get a cavity. May brings that loving feeling when the New Moon lands in your Love House on the 2nd. Give yourself to romance. Want more of the touchy- feely? You are also blessed with friends these days. On the 13th, the Alpha-Scorpiid Meteor Shower brightens your Community Sector, and reminds you that your crew is solid. It is visible in L.A., so watch the light show with your besties. On the 18th, the Blue Moon illuminates your Career House, giving you focus. Are you getting what you want from your profession? Are you holding back? Your ruling Saturn closes out May with a lunar alignment in your House of Karma. Go easy on yourself as you take moral inventory. May is all about-soul searching for the Sea Goat. Don’t worry, you will find one.

Aquarius (January 21 – February 19)

Got something to say, Aquarius? The water bearer excels at public speaking this month. A New Moon lands in your Communication Sector May 4th.  Express your feelings clearly. (Usually they come out a little muddled.) You will have the words you need, when you need them. Your ruling Uranus aligns with brainy Mercury on the 8th, generating crazy ideas – the best kind. Be bright. Be weird. And have fun. And the Blue Moon May 18th also supports – you guessed it - public speaking. That same day, Venus and Uranus align, lending love and spontaneity to your speech. Say it loud.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Your fishbowl runneth over, Pisces. Love is all you need and all you get this month. Your constellation hosts two planetary alignments on the 2nd:  first with Venus, when love reaches its cosmic potential, and then with Mercury, linking the conscious and unconscious minds.  This would be heavy juju for any other sign, but par for the course for the mystical fishy. The New Moon lands in your House of Personal Income on the 4th, supporting responsible money management. Pisces are not known for financial savvy, so seize this opportunity to get your budget in order. And on the 13th, the Alpha-Scorpiid Meteor Shower supports spiritual renewal through sexuality. Fly your freak flag high, fishes. May brings tantric transformation.

Ophiuchus (November 29 – December 17)

The Zodiac’s rebel has a short commute this month, Ophiuchus. The revolution begins at home. A New Moon activates your Marriage House on the 4th. Take your daily life seriously, instead of for granted, and reap the harvest love sows. On the 13th, the Alpha-Scorpiid Meteor Shower brightens your House of Subconscious. Gain valuable personal insights. Who are you when you remember who you are? On the 18th, the Blue Moon in Libra stresses moderation. You are appreciated more when you do less. And on the 20th, a Moon-Jupiter alignment in your constellation connects you with the universe within.
