Your \u201cIt\u2019s Gonna Be May\u201d Forecast: Ice Cube\u2019s \u201cYour Money or Your Life\u201d is the theme song this month. May opens right after the first eclipse of 2022 and we are deep into Taurus bull territory. It\u2019s all about values: skills, talents and how to use yours. After all, Taurus is the original show-me-the-money sign.\u00a0Time is money and money is power. As Pink Floyd once sang: Don\u2019t give me that do goody good bullshit. Money\u2014that\u2019s what we want. Maybe your lesson is: \u201cYou can\u2019t take it with you.\u201d Or maybe it\u2019s: \u201cThere is more to life than money.\u201d One thing\u2019s for sure, all of us are getting schooled about our worth and how we spend time, energy and resources. Watch for Mercury Retrograde May 9 - June 3and practice the \u201cRE\u201d words: renew, restore, refresh, re-evaluate, rest, read, renovate, reorganize. Lay low around the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on May 15 - 16 because things may get wild at mid-month--this energy can go either way.
