You leave April crying, and then you experience a “comeback”, as in thank God for giving me a second chance. As May gets going, it’s all in your top tenth house of life path and career. Beautiful achievement and recognition, among the greatest joys you’ve ever felt. Life is a rum old business, isn’t it?
A somewhat chastised lioness, brought to her knees by the world passing by, is SO much more powerful than the young, unaware, and arrogant lion king. (I’m not judging genders: the analogy is that you’re both of these.)
May represents the first step to a goal, and if that step is repeated, it will cover great distances. Think of this month as a step to your future fulfillment. Slow and steady is the way now, work a day at a time, and let go of pictures bigger than a day.
There are about to be SIX retrograde heavenly bodies: Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, Pluto, Pallas, and Juno. An astonishing number. Meaning life-on-pause due to our pandemic will have even more significance by May 16. This primarily affects your domestic daily life and your friends and the groups to which you belong. It might be healthier now to disentangle yourself and start fresh. To strike out on your own. Become more independent. Separate yourself from people and forces you do not feel compatible with. Grow a thicker skin.
Use your creativity and imagination and seek out situations where the way you see things makes sense to those around you. Move toward those who can embrace and appreciate your talents and all you have to contribute.
There will be some mourning with this too, of course, but you are ready.
And like a true royal, you are always in service. You can never – or rarely – take a sick day. Leos have the fewest sick days of any sign of the zodiac. Unless they’re sad (Leo rules the heart). Then they’re laid low. And when there is a pandemic like this one, with many millions out of work. But YOU still have much to do, Leo.
Look at what you have now in your tenth career and reputation house:
The life-saving Sun (your royal ruler)
The planet of unexpected surprises Uranus
The new Taurus Moon on Wednesday, April 22
Clever Mercury as of Monday, April 27
And your most public tenth house, traditionally ruled by ambitious Capricorn, rules:
Your public image
Higher-ups: the people with money in your world
What you are striving to be like
And often – your MOTHER
This is a potent time for making strong and important new contacts – virtually. Particularly around the new public Moon in your eleventh house on Friday, May 22. Mark this date in your calendar!
Mercury is set to move into your social eleventh house on Monday, May 11, followed by your ruler the Sun on Wednesday, May 20, followed by a Gemini New Moon on Friday, May 22. Notice then how your social circle widens, and also those you count as close friends.
You are invited – by special invitation – to join prestigious organizations and clubs. To make your mark, to create your own foundation and legacy.
You are also invited virtual and Zoom parties as May gets underway. Create your own gathering if there isn’t one already available!
Career-wise, you’re in a very strong position, possibly more powerful than you even know. You, of course, do all the work, but you are also the ethicist. You decide on the goodness of things.
You use your power for good; this is very clear in 2020. Lucky Jupiter is in your service house.
So Congratulations, Leo! It’s all happening in your tenth house of career and public reputation, and you are about to zoom forward, even with someone or something that fell through in the past. Success!
You’ve been waiting, and you’ve been very strong.
Look up at the night sky on Thursday, May 7. You will see Wednesday’s violently beautiful full Scorpio Moon in your fourth house ruling early family and home.
Everything will go better at home after this resolution. Trust it!
Economizing will be the order of the day in terms of resolving this. As well as having a heart-to-heart with your partner.
With your partner you may decide to transform your home completely — or you may find a new home.
Be aware that planet of illusion Neptune is casting its rosy tint into your eighth house of shared resources and finances. So stay realistic and sensible here. You may not be seeing clearly, and some of this may be by your own conscious decision.
Don’t let fear make you over-confident this time. You know what to do. Stay steady – even as a rising mogul! – appreciate every step of your climb, and maintain your heart rate. (Which could easily skip a beat. Leo rules the heart.)
Employ it all, particularly as May’s second week begins, and your accomplishments are emphasized. Public you knows how to do it right this time. Wisely. More practically.
Interestingly, where Uranus is in your chart is where you can be crazy about doing things your own way. And you can stumble a bit here, too. Uranus is not smooth. So with Uranus in your tenth career house until July 2025: what are you going to do? Do you work with a representative / go-between / agent / manager / again or do you go your own way?
This is the million dollar question, and you need to think about it clearly.
Of course you end up with someone foreign! But I see this person developing as a friend most of all.
It’s all part of the pattern, dear Leo. You are nurturing.
Whatever great gift you are taking care of, you need internal time for it to do its thing. Let IT decide what is best.
Prepare for the unexpected! An end will come about – it may feel like a death – which makes way for a new beginning.
Stay calm when you are having discussions about this as everyone is likely to be emotional.
I haven’t even got to the most exciting part. With the new Moon on Friday, May 22, you can take a project as far as you dare.
There is no stopping you now. You are flying, and I doubt you will land – not for a long while – especially with a new project you begin on or around this new profitable Moon.
You are at your persuasive exquisiteness this month and can talk anyone into doing just about anything. Just remember that wise adage, be careful what you wish for…And stay, healthy, on earth.
And to end with even more wonderful news – your life spirit becomes stronger and stronger through the month of May and, raring to go in true competitive style, you triumph in your career.
May is a dramatic month, to be sure, but just how Lions like it. Full of big fat surprises and beautiful scenarios, exciting touch-contact, and yes, improvements in finances.
Remember what a great reality this is, dear Leo – and you, its Creator.
Spring is here, Leo!
Is it finally time for your own reading?
