The month of May kicks off with the Moon in Leo. The Moon represents your emotional energy, the past, and the feminine.

While the Moon is in Leo it takes on the traits of this fixed zodiac sign. Leo is bold, but he's also cautious.

So, early in the month, all zodiac signs are signaled to exercise caution while taking risks or doing things that you feel requires being brave.

And... with the coronavirus pandemic curve starting to flatten, the states lifting their travel and store closures, we are all on edge (slightly) more than usual.

Chiron and Mars will square one another at the start of May, too. Chiron is the Wounded Healer — how you use what hurts you to teach others and rebuild your life. How symbolic!

Acting cautiously while doing what needs to be done is essential right now, and the Moon in Leo reflects this emotional climate back to us.

This month will be heavily impacted by the retrograde season.

The dates and planets that will turn retrograde are:

May 1, 2020 — Pluto retrograde (started April 25, 2020)

May 11, 2020 — Saturn retrograde in Aquarius

May 13, 2020 — Venus retrograde in Gemini

May 14, 2020 — Jupiter retrograde in Capricorn

How will the Scorpio Full Moon on May 7, 2020 effect your zodiac sign's horoscope?

The first Full Moon will dive into the depths of Scorpio and it will square Pluto retrograde in Capricorn.

Pluto represents power, and while in Capricorn, political power.

Pluto is conjunct with Jupiter, the planet of luck, but Jupiter also represents religion, luck, and the application of wisdom.

Jupiter in Capricorn is debilitated, so, this will be an intriguing time for all zodiac signs, but mainly politically.

News about leaders around the world can surface because this is a Full Moon that releases energy, and any planet in the sign of Scorpio can activate secret-sharing.

If you're someone who tries to avoid the negativity of the news, you may want to take a social media break a few days prior to the Full Moon and after — or set your Facebook feed scroll so it's not on topics that trigger you.

On a personal level, this is a great time to clear your old files at home, to go through old books on the shelves, and run a drop off at your local thrift store or donation center.

If you have not updated paperwork regarding inheritance, financials involving insurance policies, or have gone to see your doctor for your annual physical, etc, this is a good time to do it and schedule these activities in.

How does Mercury in Taurus entering Gemini on May 11-20, 2020 effect your zodiac sign's horoscope?

Mercury will be at home while in the sign of Gemini and this provokes optimism, a desire to learn as much as possible, and to really get into communication in all formats.

This is a time for diversity, to think, and to do things that you want to do involving social media.

Have a business idea you plan to put online. Work on your website.

Have you not bought your domain name, yet? Then go and get that done.

The new way of doing business will be online. Remote jobs may start to appear more and more while Mercury is in Gemini.

For writers, this can be a great time to pen your novel, to think ahead for NaNoWriMo, or to write your business's policy and procedure manual.

If you tend to have high energy or get nervous easily, try a new workout at home or start learning Sudoku, get into Legos once again, or download a language app for foreign language study.

How will Mars in Aquarius entering Pisces on May 13, 2020 - June 27, 2020 affect your zodiac sign's monthly horoscope?

Mars represents passion but it also is our energy. Mars in Aquarius is the humanitarian, and while in Pisces it ignites our desire for spirituality, but not without a fight.

For some zodiac signs, this can become a time of doubt. There can be significant anger about restrictive religious cultures and empaths may feel this energy intensely.

This is a lazier placement for Aries, so going with gusto comes down a notch. Whatever projects you need to do, pace yourself.

You may require more time to process and refuel, so try not to pack your schedule with activities that don't excite you, unless you have to.

How will Venus retrograde in Gemini on May 13 - June 25, 2020 effect your zodiac sign's May horoscope?

This is the first time that Venus will turn retrograde after a year and half of being direct. So, it's a big deal!

Venus (and Pluto) are the only two planets in the solar system that truly turn retrograde when their season arrives.

Venus retrograde will involve your partnerships, your money, property, and the perception of beauty.

While in Gemini, anticipate a review of these areas, but also anticipate some ex-lovers coming around.

For some zodiac signs who really want a second shot at love with someone that they loved and lost, this is your time to make things work.

However, for some zodiac signs, Venus retrograde will be more about rebuilding your finances and fortifying your business affairs.

If you're a business owner, this will be a great time to double-down on your business affairs and to work harder and smarter to recover from the shut-down while Venus was direct in the sign of Gemini.

How will Saturn retrograde in Aquarius entering Capricorn affect your zodiac sign's monthly horoscope?

Saturn will turn retrograde at the first critical degree of Aquarius on May 11, 2020 and retrograde back into Capricorn on July 1 before turning direct on September 28, 2020.

Saturn is an outer planet that rules nations, dictators, and it's also a malefic planet.

Saturn retrograde can create a social awareness for all zodiac signs. It may trigger the collective conscience across the globe as well.

Saturn has been known to strip what's unnecessary from us. So, during this retrograde phase, take personal inventory.

Look at how you do business. Review your wants and desires and be certain not to make unnecessary demands of yourself or others at that time.

Saturn will be back in Aquarius on December 17, 2020 and remain direct for the remainder of the year.

How will Uranus in Taurus effect your zodiac sign during the month of May?

Uranus remains direct while in the zodiac sign Taurus. During this time, start looking at food in a new way.

Maybe consider planting a garden, or thinking about canning, using less and perhaps focusing on quality vs quantity when it comes to your material possessions.

How will Jupiter retrograde in Capricorn affect your zodiac sign?

Power plays come under scrutiny while Jupiter is in Capricorn, especially in conjunction with Pluto.

During this time, we may see this play out in politics more than our own personal lives.

However, it's good to be aware of what you may be power-hungry about and try not to control others, only yourself.

To learn more about your monthly horoscope, here's what astrology predicts for each of the zodiac signs throughout May 2020.
