Your Aquarius Horoscope for May 2016 has Mercury retrograde having you want to connect with your ancestors. So this month the main theme is your need to get in touch with your roots. Your home and personal territory become really important and the tendency to look inward while spending time in your home sanctuary is something your soul is crying out for at this time. If you own your home outright then you might want to focus on making it more secure or creating a ‘safe space’ within it, away from noisier family members. It benefits your health to honour ancestral linage, if your immediate family seem alien to you, maybe you can feel grounded by looking back in time. It is vital to spend sometime healing those childhood wounds that are a direct symptom of past family trauma. The root of the injury may stem from a few generations back and it could be that revising the history of that time period can be instrumental in rewiring the brain into a more positive path for growth. This lasts until May 21 when suddenly you are thrust into the wonderfully romantic secret-garden section of your chart and you can enjoy some quality time with your partner without nagging domestic concerns.
Aquarius May 2016 ~ Mercury Retrograde
You will feel like withdrawing from too many discussions with those in the outside world at this time. You are really not in the mood for heated debates on current affairs. Instead it seems that your thoughts are looking into the distant past and maybe old memories are coming back to haunt you. Try to think of what could be sparking off this nostalgia. Information you are receiving could be firing up those neural pathways through music you listened to as a teen or maybe someone at work is wearing a fragrance that a past lover used to wear. Sometimes these seemingly insignificant sensory triggers can transport us through time just as well as any Tardis could. For days afterwards you could have dreams, intuitions and weird synchronicity that open-up unfinished business in your life. This is an opportune time to have a good heart-to-heart with a parent if there have been misunderstandings in the past that need reviewing. You should be able to have a good clean memory of any unresolved past events, so that you can ask the right questions to get truthful answers.
Aquarius May 2016 ~ Emotions
Friends become extremely important with the May 21 Full Moon and you will feel extra sentimentally attached to your buddies. Indeed they will feel more like blood siblings. One in particular might become your new ‘BFF’. It could get so, that even if you are both fully fledged adults, a kind of childish jealousy of other friendships could come into play. On the other hand you may experience this clinginess yourself from another friend, which can be either charmingly sweet or desperately annoying depending on how independent you are. It’s a time when you feel like confiding your innermost dreams and fears to your best pal and they will be very receptive towards hearing them. You should experience support and protective nurturing from your closest friends at this time which makes you really appreciative of your little clan. You will want to spend time with like-minded souls around the time of the Full Moon. It would be good idea to arrange a get-together well in advance so nobody misses out on on your ‘coven’ making its social magic.
Aquarius May 2016 ~ Love
Venus in your home sector means that you are less likely to want to go out and socialise for most of this month. The chances of singletons meeting anyone new are low, unless you like postmen. On the other hand, if you are coupled up you will probably feel so loved up that you don’t even want to leave your boudoir of love. Enjoy this time to do some home cooking, chill in the garden or even some light decorating. If you are single then take time making your home comfortable for two, build it and they will come! Make your nest as inviting as possible, and for heaven sake tidy up if your singledom has turned you into a class A slob. Another possibility could be meeting someone when you go back and visit your parents. You could rekindle things with an old flame from your old town, because you are both available at the same time. After May 23 your love life hots up as Venus slinks into your pleasure zone and Mercury goes direct. This opens the door for fun flirtations that hold the promise of something more.. You are more open and trusting to communicating with new people than you where in the rest of the month.
