There are intense cosmic shifts that we may all feel on a deeply personal level this month. Trickster Mercury turns retrograde in Gemini on May 10 and remains spinning backward through June 3. Editing your metaphorical scripts for any potential plans becomes vital, since there are likely at least a couple of thoughts or ideas that aren't working for you. Remember, thoughts become things! If you want to materialize anything, make sure your mind is in tip-top shape. This retrograde can help get you there.
May 10 is a busy date -- also happening then is the exciting shift of expansive Jupiter into passionate Aries! Jupiter in this sign wants to help you grow into the most courageous version of yourself by majorly boosting your faith in yourself. By putting in the work, you can finally accomplish whatever you dream of the most. You've got this! Then, on May 16, a potent Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio serves as a dynamic, healing moment for us all. It's time to take out the trash and release any toxic people or traumas that may be dragging you down. You are capable of doing this gently, thanks to the support of Mars, Neptune, and Pluto with this Eclipse -- but you must do it. Luna's square to stern Saturn will make sure of that!
Last but not least, a New Moon in Gemini on May 30 has you ready to implement at least one of the new ideas, plans, or thought patterns you've been adjusting during the Mercury retrograde. As long as you've done your cosmic homework this month, you'll have a green light for success once Mercury moves direct next month!

Gemini Monthly Horoscope
Gemini dates: May 21 - June 20
You may feel a little out of sorts this month. If you do, remember that sometimes, before major progress in life is made, you need to step back for a better view of the whole situation. When Mercury turns retrograde in your sign on May 10, you'll truly understand what this means for you. You may find that others aren't understanding your ideas as much as you want them to, but that could be less about how you're communicating and more about who you're communicating with. It might be time to reevaluate what and whom you spend your mental energy on -- and yes, this includes romantic relationships. The New Moon in your sign on May 30 signals a fresh start in this area of your life -- as long as you're open to a vital shift in personal perspective.

Despite feeling a mental pull back from Mercury Retrograde, you should also feel a shift in energy in terms of life possibilities. You know that your world is becoming larger, not smaller, and you're excited to explore any new social connections that come your way. Get ready for bliss!

On the same day, however, communication planet Mercury turns retrograde. This won't affect your ability to learn new information, but it might cause some hiccups in your social life.

When Mercury slips and turns retrograde on May 10, professional matters could get confusing. That's okay! In fact, this temporary haze creates chances to review your goals and decide what remains viable and worth pursuing.

This new eclipse demands that, like a snake, you shed whatever dead skin you may have been holding onto. An old version of yourself must be left behind in order for you to grow into your shiny new self!
For some, this may have to do with an unhealthy behavior pattern or coping mechanism that is potentially preventing you from addressing a past trauma. Whatever this means for you personally, get ready to eradicate it! Once you do, you'll feel like you can finally breathe again -- and you can prepare for whatever is meant to come next in your love life as well.

This month might feel like it's ALL about love and relationships! The action begins when Mercury turns retrograde in your partnership sector on May 10. It looks like you and your current partner should take a few steps backward in order to solve something in your love connection.

Jupiter's entry into your home sector is sure to bring magnificent luck and blessings your way within your family dynamic or regarding real estate. You might, for example, be extra busy moving to a new home or expanding your current abode in a major renovation. On the other hand, you could be welcoming a new family member into your home.

Tricky Mercury will spin retrograde in your romance sector on May 10, creating confusion in this area of your life. It could have to do with a choice between two lovers or a romantic opportunity from your past resurfacing. You may also wonder whether or not you should stay with your current sweetheart. Marinate in the possibilities for most of the month rather than make any abrupt decisions! Fortunately, after a New Moon in the same area of your chart on May 30, you should have guidance toward the best direction for you.
In other news, there will be a potent Lunar Eclipse illuminating your career sector on May 16. This could put you on a completely different path as it relates to your profession, leading to fresh and beautiful fulfillment.

In other news, Mercury will turn retrograde in your home and family sector on May 10 as well.
