Lunar Eclipse 15-16 May 2022 Astrology Effects on 12 Zodiac Signs
Sun and Mercury (retrograde) in Krittika nakshatra of Vrishabha Rasi (Taurus) are in close proximity with Rahu in same nakshatra but in Mesha Rasi (Aries).
Moon will be transiting in Visakha nakshatra (3rd and 4th quarters between Libra and Scorpio) during entire Lunar Eclipse and conjunct Ketu in same nakshatra.
They are aspected by Saturn in Dhanishta (3rd quarter) in Kumbha (Aquarius), who is also conjunct Mars in Poorvabhadra constellation.
Jupiter in Uttarabhadra and Venus in Revati (both in Pisces) have no impact on this lunar eclipse.
Rahu and Ketu direct motion till 16 May 2022 can increase Covid-19 cases in few countries.
If you are born with Moon conjunct Ketu or Rahu, do not attempt swimming or diving into water during this month.
If you are born with Moon in Visakha, Poorvabhadra or Punarvasu constellations, or going through Jupiter (guru) Dasa, then expect major changes in life within next 4 weeks.
If you are born under Libra or Scorpio Moon sign or Ascendant or going through Moon Dasa, then it is time to take care of your money, health and relationships.
May 2022 will be testing time (psychologically and financially) for people born in ascendants and moon signs of Pisces, Aries, Gemini, Cancer, Libra, Scorpio, Capricorn.
Expect good days for people born in ascendants and moon signs of Aquarius, Taurus, Leo.
Many will be flooded with opportunities, challenges, confusion, misleading signals, and elements of deception with misplaced aggression and major shift in thinking and circumstances.
Interesting part of this phase would be the challenges and positive events that would come about together and sometimes during the same week (even days), making this period worth analysing as well as planning for.
By the time you reach middle of August 2022 that your professional, personal, love, financial, and many other aspects of life would be so different and maybe even unrecognizable compared to the early parts of May 2022.

Friday May 6: Mercury sextile Venus: Mercury-Venus is good for pleasant conversation. Call and old friend just to say hi.
Saturday May 7: Sun sextile Mars: This aspect is also good for taking action. Start things now before the Retrograde Mercury on May 10 brings delays!
Tuesday May 10: Mercury Stations Retrograde: This will last until June 3. Retrograde Mercury causes delays with transportation and communication. Do not start any major new projects now. The Retrograde will make the details go wrong. Use common sense here. If you have a medical emergency, you don’t wait days for the Retrograde to end before you call emergency ! But if you want to start an important project, try to put it off until a few days after June 3.
