The lovely month of May offers more than just flowers – it’s rich with whimsical romantic energy and deeply creative vibes. The passionate energy filling the astrological air will offer a unique bonding opportunity between two seemingly opposite star signs: Aries and Taurus. On Tuesday, May 15th, Uranus will make the extremely rare move from Aries into Taurus. On the very same day, a new moon begins in Taurus. If you and your love interest are repping these two signs, this is the week for you.
Aries – you know yourself. On the plus side, you’re as fiery as your fire sign, independent, and used to being the extroverted center of attention. On a bad day, these attributes look more like stubbornness, impulsivity, and verbal belligerence.
And Taurus, you’re as grounded as the earth your sign represents: authentic, trustworthy, and loyal to a fault. Opposingly, you can be lazy, selfish, and just as stubborn as Aries. See? You have something in common already. The planetary movement this week is betting on you two.
When determining astrological compatibility, it’s easy to write off a difficult pair at face value, giving up on certain signs all together. There are multiple factors to consider here, though.
First of all, have you checked out your birth chart? Your rising sign and moon sign are just as telling as your star sign when determining a match. If you’ve never read your birth chart before, you can get a free overall read from this site. I didn’t put much thought into astrology until I read my birth chart and realized how accurate it truly was. As a Virgo, I’ve stayed true to my practical and overly-organized tendencies, but I didn’t identify fully with the brand. My birth chart revealed a much clearer character picture with my ascendant and moon sign.
Rising Sign/Ascendant: Your outside self. Who you are at a cocktail party or when you first meet someone.
Sun Sign: This is the one that you already know. Your representative self. Who you are on a daily basis.
Moon Sign: Your innermost self. Who you are with only your most trusted friends. The emotional and intuitive instinctual self.
Regardless, there are plenty of Aries and Taurus aspects that play well together. Both are extremely passionate signs, so the relationship won’t be short on heat. Each will need to learn how to compromise. Balance is key here. And what a great learning experience this relationship can be! Assisted by the movement from Aries to Taurus on Tuesday, the union will teach each sign to value the other’s best attributes. Aries can learn to enjoy the slow and steady, and Taurus can be a bit more impulsive.
Even though Taurus is from Venus and Aries is from Mars, the stars are ever in your favor right now! By the time the Sagittarius full moon shows up at the end of the month, your Aries and Taurus relationship will have been reborn onto a higher spiritual plane.
