Leo Horoscope for May 2024

Posted on in Leo |
By for ASTROGRAPH Horoscopes

This is another significant month for you, Leo, in the cycle following last month’s powerful New Moon eclipse from April 8th. This took place in your sector of Higher Mind, signifying a thoughtful approach to your most fundamental beliefs and worldview, plus travel or educational plans, all of which might be affected by the highlighted presence of Chiron, the Wounded Healer, and the Mercury Retrograde. You are feeling a big push to venture into these areas further than previously, in order to inhabit your most authentic self-concept. This could be accompanied however by elements of self-doubt stemming from inner wounding, the residue of undigested early childhood trauma that could potentially be holding you back. The recipe here is to begin to pay loving attention, without shame or holding back, to the walled-off hurt places within you. In another astrological indication, you also likely are observing many and varied opportunities with career objectives, and will profit mightily by staying open to new possibilities. By mid-month, new vocational initiatives beckon and good progress is likely. The First Quarter Moon of the 15th represents a growth spurt, with attending conflicts that will likely find their resolution by dint of diligent effort.

Last month's Aries New Moon and solar eclipse seeded an important new cycle for you involved with your sector of higher learning, beliefs, and travel — and this is the site of a developmental turning point that will play out over the next six months. This New Moon featured a highlighted presence of Chiron, the Wounded Healer, so that you might be continuing in this May month to better integrate within your evolving consciousness difficult experiences of inner wounding that could be linked to new adventures of self-discovery. There could be continued healing throughout the May month related to a novel exploration of the ideas that guide your life and shape your experience.

On May 2nd, Pluto stations retrograde in your opposite sign of Aquarius, drawing focus to your realm of relationships and the much slower deep evolution that has begun with regard to your sector of partnership. Sometimes topics of love and relationships will be an ambient hum in the background; other times, you will receive direct information if a situation or approach is not accounting for your growth. In all cases there will be a slow application of a transformative process with respect to your relationship dynamic.

With Venus back in her home sign of Taurus and sitting at the most visible angle in your chart, you may have extra public or professional influence and allure this month. Separating from a square to Pluto in the first few days of May, tensions between your career and partnerships could be amplified, including their influence on your public identity or reputation. A sextile to Pluto from Mars in Aries from the 1st to the 5th may energize overseas plans, matters of education, and other quests for meaning. While action is empowered, Pluto's influence may thrust something concealed from you into the light through the relational realm as the old rubs up against the new.

From the 5th to the 7th, a conjunction between Mercury in Aries and Chiron could call attention to limiting beliefs, inadequacies, or experiences that have left you wondering where you stand with things existentially speaking. This is a call toward the pilgrimage of life, where exploring different cultures and systems of belief and knowledge may help you reorient your compass. Your mentorship, teaching, and healing roles may also be a focus now.

On the 7th, the Taurus New Moon arrives in your sphere of career and professional life. While it may take some time to bear fruit, what is gestating now relates to an expanded sense of meaning or purpose in your worldly activities. Changes in your professional domain may have thrust you out of your comfort zone or pushed you to redefine your worth and security. The presence of Jupiter and Venus, the greater and lesser benefits, in this same sector indicates you have opportunities for recognition, enjoyment, and achievement this month, which may have longer-term influence. A sextile from the Sun and Moon to Saturn in Pisces draws attention to your sphere of intimacy and joint enterprises, suggesting projects, contractual negotiations, and investments that could successfully come to fruition. You may want to reflect on the fact that there was a new 14-year cycle that opened just ten days before the beginning of May, in last month's Jupiter-Uranus conjunction in Taurus.

On the 12th and 13th, the Sun, your ruler, conjoins Uranus in Taurus. Even the best-laid plans can be disrupted when Uranus is in the mix. It's a good time to connect with your highest aspirations and be flexible about how they show up. Loosening your grip on strict codes of conduct, your image, or concern for the opinions of others may be enlivening. A sextile between Venus and Saturn also points to the easing of constraints, possibly related to financial concerns, obligations to others, or a challenging period of internal growth. Perhaps you are considering the influence of family karma or early conditioning, including your attitudes toward authority and embodiment of your own.

The First Quarter Moon in Leo on the 15th takes place as Mercury enters Taurus, applying to a square with Pluto that is active until the 19th. This could align with intense focus on a team effort. There could be a difficult balance to strike between cooperation and independence. You may feel pulled between your professional life, personal aims, and partnerships as you consider significant life decisions. You may become better known for something you do; your honesty and integrity are important, and your partnerships may need to reflect that in order to be fully viable.

Venus conjoins Uranus on the 17th, and then the 18th, the same day as a Jupiter Cazimi. This is a valuable and magical time for your vocational developmental issues. Your work relationships, public image, or values may be in flux or even show signs of dramatic change. This could catalyze variations in a long-established approach. People are drawn to you around this date; you are perhaps acknowledged for your expertise, and unexpected opportunities, romantic interests, or influential connections might cross your path

A Mars-North Node conjunction in Aries is activated between the 18th and the 21st, energizing ambitions in your sector of expanded horizons, both intellectual and physical, that may relate to your professional life. Pioneering a new path requires intellectual independence — and this may require a new level of deprogramming from unexamined dogmas or socially sanctioned dictates.

The Sun enters Gemini on the 20th, initiating a new emphasis in your sector of community and long-term goals.

The Sagittarius Full Moon on the 23rd illuminates the significance of your sphere of creativity, children, and joy as the culmination and fulfillment of the Gemini cycle. Venus also exactly conjoins Jupiter in the last degree of Taurus, as both planets sextile Neptune in Pisces, at the end of your sector of intimacy and joint assets, and the beginning of your higher mind sector; both of these are affected. You might find that you find a heightened sense of prosperity, be it in your material circumstances or connections with others—perhaps you are prioritizing your family, fun, or an artistic pursuit. Simultaneously you could be launched into a new, more idealistic and fuller sense of worldview and as far as educational or travel prospects.

This last week of the month may be a good time to invest in creative and collaborative projects, which could find success or reach a larger audience. You also likely have the skills, connections, and resources to do what you need to do, these developments with your social realm and life ambitions.

Jupiter follows Venus into Gemini on the 25th, where the social and playful side of your life offers opportunity, meaning, and lively discourse over the next year. Whether online or in person, this period may expand the reach of your voice and engagement with different concepts, groups, and collaborations. Embracing the Jupiterian path of curiosity and generalized agnosticism about your social identity, the types of people you surround yourself with, or the ideologies you espouse will be more fun. This may prompt you to express yourself in new ways and extend your bonds of connection and experience.

The Sun, Venus, and Jupiter all connect to Pluto by trine as they enter Gemini from the 20th until the end of May, empowering this new period of expansion in your personal circle and evolving life dreams and connecting these developments to changes in your realm of love and relationships. This period could see meaningful partnerships come into your life that reorient your trajectory or help you along it.
