Analysis of Planetary Energy of May 2020 and Predictions for 12 Signs
May 2020 is marked by a number of very significant transits of planets.
Retrogression movement of three major planets, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn within a span of four days in the second week of May is one unique and quite rare transit. This is the most important planetary event in the month of May.
Although Rahu is not changing sign, its move from stormy Ardra to gentle Mrigashira is a big shift towards much easier energy to handle. As per mean node calculations it is moving on 21 May 2020. As per true node calculations Rahu Has already moved to Mrigashira on 22 April 2020.
Thirdly very important transit is Mercury’s move to its own sign of Gemini on 25 May. Degree-wise Mercury will permanently break the Kaal-Sarpa yoga that has been in place since end of March 2020 on 29 May (mean node calculation). As per true node calculations, Kaal-Sarpa is breaking on 28 May 2020.
Mars leaves its exaltation sign Capricorn on 4 May itself.
Sun leaves its exaltation sign on 14 May and goes to Taurus.
Let is now see the impact of planetary energies on us in the month of May.
The triple planet retrogression will leave its impact on a large scale and on everyone. This event as per the Kaal Purush chart will supersede anything that is promised in your individual birth chart. The intensity of the results will differ from person to person depending on the strength of these three heavy weights in the chart, but there is no escaping from the combined energy that they will exude.
Retrograde planets are extremely powerful but they often create a distorted perception of their true significations. Saturn, Jupiter and Venus, the three planets that signify masses, sufferings, hard work, discipline, wisdom, higher belief, higher learning, tradition, partnership and relations are going retrograde at the same time denotes the starting of a very intense period where there will be uncertainty, instability, lack of peace and distorted view of what these planets mean in our lives.
People who were obeying all instructions may begin to think differently. The overall thought process of the masses will suddenly turn adverse. There will be build- up of frustrations in people. It is said in the classic texts that when three planets go retrograde at the same time, it poses threat to world peace and here we are talking about three heavy weight planets like Saturn, Jupiter and Venus. A retrograde Saturn may create a more congenial atmosphere for the diseases and struggle. Sun’s movement to Taurus in the middle of the month also supports increase in the intensity and spread of the disease. Wide spread sufferings may prompt many to question religious ideas and beliefs. With both Gurus (Jupiter and Venus) retrograde at the same time, general wisdom and prudence will take a beating. People will not take the right kind of advice. There will be rise in advisors or mentors with pseudo-knowledge and pseudo-wisdom. One needs to be careful in existing partnerships and relationships, both personal and professional, since they will go through a re-assessment. Financially this is not the best time for spending on comfort and luxury. If you are still not careful with spending, you may see some serious adversity by July 2020. With Jupiter gaining strength during retrogression there will be efforts in reviving the economy and in wealth generation.
Mars breaking away from Saturn is a positive sign this month. This removes the overall ‘Sangharsh Yoga’ and will definitely reduce struggles in people’s lives. However, Mars’s aspect falls on Mercury till 25 May causing some aggression in communication. People will want a solution immediately and therefore will act impulsively. After 25 May Mercury moves to its own sign of Gemini and joins Rahu. This Mercury becomes highly communicative and transformative. Sun’s movement in the sign of Taurus by mid-May will weaken the immunity. There may be a steep increase in infectious diseases after mid-May. Sun will also be aspected by Mars till 4 May and again from 14 May till the end of the month. Therefore with this transit challenges in life will increase and the authorities will actively make sure that the implementation of rules and regulations are met to the T, whether the public likes it or not.
Rahu’s transit to Mrigashira will bring some relief to the intense energy that it created so far. This will particularly be relieving for people with a depressive mind who were feeling confined due to the situations beyond their control. Permanent break in the Kaal-Sarpa yoga by Mercury on 29 May (mean node calculation) will relieve the world from the feeling of being trapped, mental anguish and unrest.
May is the beginning of the period when you should utilise the energy of the ‘3 planet retrogression’ with ‘3 R’s – Reflect, Re-evaluate, Re-organise your ideas, work, decisions and relations.
Some important dates:
Do not plan or initiate anything new between 9 May and 16 May 2020. This is the time when the effects of the retrograde energy are at their peak. Therefore avoid taking any new decision related to career, finance and relationships.
However, if there is any work that has been left pending or unsolved for a long time, this is a good time to re-start those.
In this troubled times I would encourage all to chant Mahamrityunjay mantra and Hanuman Chalisha to negate the ill effects of Rahu and Saturn and to develop positivity and calmness within ourselves.
Visit or reach out to your spiritual Guru and seek blessings.
Stick to the rules and regulations and righteous path. Do not do anything that is harmful to other people, to animals and to the environment. Retrograde Saturn will not wait to see how far you can go; it will yield immediate karmic retribution.
May 2020 Prediction for all signs
These predictions are based on your Vedic Moon sign. Use these predictions as a general guideline for the month.
One thing to note here and I have mentioned this earlier while explaining the overall planetary energy of May 2020, is that the combined effect of the retrogression of Saturn, Jupiter and Venus will impact all Rashis. No matter what is promised in your individual chart, there is no escaping from this energy. However, it does not mean that your individual chart gets nullified now. It is just that this is a period when Kaal Purush chart has more say than the individual charts. However, the intensity will differ as per your natal planetary placements, your Karmic footprint and your Dasha, Antardasha.
Your sign lord Mars is moving out of its exaltation sign on 4 May and moving to Aquarius. This is a good transit indeed after a prolonged period of frustrations, home related issues and obstacles. However, with Saturn’s retrogression there will be a lot of pressure and obstacles in the work area; You will find yourself intellectually very sound and enriching others’ lives with your humanitarian instincts. Your leadership abilities and status in the society will increase. Children will bring happiness. Health wise there may be troubles with eyes, stress, high blood pressure, heart and chest issues. You need to keep a check on your aggressive behaviour, temper and words you speak. Although your sign lord’s placement promises a boost in income, Saturn and Venus retrogression will have overall adverse effect. Earlier investments may not give good returns. High expenditure may also cause a dent to your financial stability. Workwise, there will be obstacles in career growth. However, Jupiter retrogression is looking better for you. You may re-visit and complete a work that you had to leave mid-way. With Venus retrograde, your relations will go through a re-assessment. Stay away from any conflicts or arguments with your spouse and other family members.
Your sign lord is strongly placed in your own sign and will be going retrograde on 13 May. From 5 May Venus will be aspected by Mars causing some health issues and discord in relationships. After mid-May your sign will be crowded with presence of retrograde Venus, Sun and Mercury and all will be aspected by Mars and Jupiter. In general this month will see rise in sharpness and dynamism in your personality. There will be a flurry of activity for you this month. However, it is best not to make any change in the way life is going on for you. It is also not the best time for changing jobs or bringing up old issues related to your relationships and partnerships. Try to settle those after June. Financially this month will see rise in expenditure, particularly after mid-month. Any investment done earlier may not yield promised result. With Saturn going retrograde, you will feel rise in profession and luck. Be diligent and do not leave work for later. There may be some sudden change in the financial and family situation. Take care of your father’s health. Take care not to say anything hurtful and do not make promises that you cannot keep. Health-wise there is a possibility of relapse of some ailment that you had in the past. There may be troubles related to eyes, blood pressure, headache, stress and anxiety. Reach out to your Guru and seek blessings.
Your sign lord Mercury will come out of Aries on 9 May and enter Taurus, your 12th house. From 10 may Mercury comes out of combustion and gains strength. Sun will join Mercury on 14 May in Taurus.

Try not to lose your cool and do not use abusive languages, both of these may land you in trouble. There may be obstruction in education. Mars will come out of your 8th house on 4 May and move to your house of luck. You may find stability, infusion of luck and gain in your work area. However, due to Mars’ aspect on the 12th house your hidden enemies may become active. Venus’ retrogression will create differences with your spouse. There may be an old flame popping up in your life. You may also have difficulty in getting restful sleep. Retrograde Jupiter and Saturn in your 8th house does not look good. This will hinder growth in several areas of life. Some past issues related to business may come up. Health-wise you need to be extra careful, particularly about your eye, fever, stomach issues.
After a long time Cancer people will see a good month in May 2020. You will see positive changes in your professional life, personal relations and in money matters.

Mercury will also provide support between 9 May and 25 May. There will be income from multiple sources. Your relation with your spouse will turn better, but caution is needed not to sour it by harsh use of words. The only hic-up is Mars’ transit in 8th house. This may cause some health issues for you. There may be possibilities of cuts and wounds or surgeries. Mental stress will also be there. However, this month your beneficial planetary positions outweigh the negative one. Therefore, I do not see any reason to worry. You need to make use of this period fully till end of June and try to gain as much stability in life as possible. Pray to Lord Hanuman and listen to Hanuman Chalisa to ward off the negative effects of Mars and gain mental peace.
Your sign lord Sun is transiting your 9th house in the first half of the month and then transiting your 10th house in the sign of Taurus.

However, with Mars and Mercury’s help you may see better results. Till 9 May Mercury will be combust. Thereafter it will give good results. There will be increase in fortunes, growth in career. Your enemies will retreat. Since Mars will be transiting your 7th house, it will create health trouble for your spouse. Your relation with your spouse may also get stressed.
