Weekly Astrology Forecast: May 9 - 15, 2022

Posted on May 08, 2022

A silhouetted figure stands amongst the Northern lights in the night sky.

Are you prepared for a week of dynamic, exciting, and potentially challenging energy that will help you both grow as an individual and make your dreams come true? Then astrology is here to deliver!

There are two major transits occurring this week (and on the same day,) and while one of those transits might seem scary at first, it can actually bring about positive transformation! On May 10th, communicative Mercury goes retrograde in the intellectual sign of Gemini and benevolent Jupiter moves into spicy Aries.

Mercury retrograde is a transit that often gets a bad rap, but with a bit of patience and understanding, you can actually make this transit work for you! This is a period of about three weeks when Mercury appears to be moving backward to the naked eye, and the areas associated with this planet become somewhat strained - like communication, the sharing of information, and even short-distance travel.

As long as you stay positive, infuse your daily interactions with patience, and remember that this will pass, this transit may be slightly uncomfortable but ultimately good for you! Plus, this period only lasts from May 10th to May 31st, so stay strong!

When generous Jupiter moves into Aries, where it will remain until October 28th, allowing this planet to take on the fiery essence of Aries. This highly-charged energy encourages you to take action towards your goals, and Jupiter rewards you for bold behavior now. It’s time to start bringing those dreams and desires into reality!

May 9th – 15th is a Week to Communicate with Patience and Embrace Your Passion

While Mercury retrograde may require an extra dose of patience and understanding, it can also help you find your balance and coping skills for stressful situations. Jupiter in Aries urges you to follow your instincts as well as your creative passion. This transit ensures that taking bold steps towards your goals will yield the best results!

Can you allow your bold, fiery side to shine through and take over during this time? These next five months provide some seriously magical opportunities from Jupiter in Aries.

If you’re not sure what actions to take, a personalized astrological reading can help you learn how to act boldly, based on your birth chart.
