Aries May 2020 Horoscope


Planetary retrograde activity increases this month; after the 16th 40 per cent of the planets are moving backwards. While this isn’t yet the maximum for the year, it is still a high percentage. The pace of life slows down a bit.

The retrograde of Venus is perhaps the most significant for you. She rules both the love and the financial life. This is a rare retrograde – it happens once every two years – that begins on May 16. So any major purchases or investments should be done before the 16th. Afterwards, avoid these things and take stock of your financial life. Give it a good review and see where improvements can be made. The same is true for the spouse, partner or current love. But for him or her this taking stock is in effect all month – and for the next few months. In spite of this, he or she will prosper this month. Earnings might come more slowly but they will come.

The love life will slow down after the 16th too. Relationships or friendships can seem to go backwards. But as with finance, don’t make important love decisions during Venus’s retrograde.

Venus will spend the month in your 3rd house. This shows that love and romantic opportunities can be found close to home, in the neighbourhood and perhaps with neighbours. Financial opportunities happen here too.

The retrograde of Saturn, your career planet, begins on May 11, and it coincides with strength in the lower half of your Horoscope. The upper half, the day side of the chart, is still the strongest, but the lower half is stronger than it has been all year. (Next month the lower half will be at its maximum for the year.) So, you can devote more time to the home and family. Career is still important but it is slowing down. Many issues will need time to resolve.

You are still in a yearly financial peak until the 20th, but because of Venus’s retrograde, wrap up financial dealings before the 16th. This is still a good month to pay down or to make debt – especially before the 16th. Also good, like last month, for tax and estate planning (for those of you of the appropriate age).

Health is even better than last month. Your health planet, Mercury, will be ‘out of bounds’ this month from the 17th onwards. This would indicate that you are looking ‘outside the box’ in health matters.
