This month you might feel as if you just can't manage to find any peace. Although that might sound disconcerting, on some level you have to realize that you're the one stirring the pot in May -- especially as it relates to your home and family life.
On May 15 a dazzling New Moon will occur in your 4th House of Home and Family, which does signal a fresh start in family matters. While in some cases you might initiate a move or a change in the dynamic between you and your clan, overall there will be an unsteady energy connected to whatever you try to implement now. That's because, on the same day as this New Moon, a much louder planetary shift will occur -- one that just might feel like an earthquake in your living room.
This proverbial earthquake is occurring because you know in your heart that something needs to change at home. You're not happy remaining in a stifling living condition and because of this, you're going to rebel. Uranus, your ruling planet of individuality, freedom, and change, will move into your 4th house for the first time in 84 years on May 15. Until November 6 you'll have a taste of what domestic renovations will need to occur in order to bring back a sense of personal comfort in your family life. Then, in 2019, this will become a much more long-term lesson. Stability is the goal here, but ironically, it can only be achieved through massive chaos. Everything you thought you wanted connected to your home life might begin to change due to an inner restlessness that you're experiencing.
For some, this might have to do with feeling personally confined or stifled due to family responsibilities that have become untenable. If you feel this way, you might initially act out and begin to refuse doing whatever it is you've done for so long. You'll feel liberated, but your family will be rattled. It'll take a while to find the right balance between honoring your personal needs and meeting domestic obligations. In the beginning, however, you might not be interested in balancing things out. You just want a change.
Mars will also enter your sign on May 16, and will be in Aquarius for an unusually long time thanks to an upcoming retrograde this summer. With Mars in your sign, you might come across to others in a more argumentative, self-centered way. Still, you'll have amazing energy at your disposal now to start doing what's truly best for you. So … what's the plan?
