(To see your Sun sign right away, scroll down.)
The information in this column is limited. It does not replace your seeing your astrologer. If you know the sign of your Moon and your Ascending sign, read those sections also. This information is helpful because it mentions planets passing through your sign. These do bring opportunities.
Special note: Here’s wishing all of you the best in May. The emphasis this month is on the signs Aries, Taurus, Gemini, and Cancer. Whatever we have in our own charts, we also become these qualities temporarily. Aries acts, Taurus possesses, Gemini thinks, and Cancer feels. Mercury in week 1 and Venus in weeks 1 and 2 are in Aries; we want to take action. Venus will square Saturn and Pluto and trine Jupiter. The former brings trouble and the latter brings solutions, so we should take care with love. The Sun in weeks 1, 2, and 3, Mercury in weeks 2 and 3, & Venus in weeks 3 and 4 are in Taurus; this shows us focusing on money, beauty, and comfort. In Taurus, Mercury and Venus meet Uranus and bring the interesting and unexpected. Mars in Gemini in weeks 1 and 2 and shows us being mentally, verbally, and physically active. It is square Neptune and oppose Jupiter. This can add strangness and extremes to behavior. Jupiter is in Sagittarius this year. In attitude and philosophy, we are soaking up the optimism and faith of Jupiter and Sagittarius. But with Mars, planet of fire and trouble opposing Jupiter, planet of religion, we daw Notre Dame burn. Mars & Jupiter connections can give noted people trouble. Mars is in Cancer in weeks 3 and 4 and shows us pouring energy into domestic matters. Stress and emotion are an unproductive combination. With 4 bodies in Cancer in the U.S. Chart, Mars brings us a bit of trouble. The Sun and Mercury in week 4 are in Gemini. This makes us mentally and physically active. Uranus went back into Taurus from Aries in early March and stays for 7 years. When it went form Aries to Taurus in May, we had Kiluea. Let’s see if anything happens as Uranus changes sign again. Uranus in Taurus brings the unexpected in finances, and the original in art. For Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius dealing with the unexpected or disruptive is on tapp. This will take good managerial skills and the ability to know what we can mamage. Also these signs and Virgo and Capricorn show originality. Saturn is in its own sign, Capricorn. It stays through 2020, and becomes very strong. Saturn here is about being practical and realistic. It represents setting and achieving goals and is climbing the mountain of accomplishment. Capricorns, Taurus, and Virgos should become more practical. Capricorns, Aries, Cancer, and Libra need to get rest, avoid overwork, and remember to seek joy. Saturn is approaching Pluto. We should be a bit cautious to avoid loss because this is rather extreme. There will be realilty checks.
A New Moon in Taurus later on the 3rd, the 4th, and 5th brings a focus on spring beauty and a new start in finances. A Full Moon in Scorpio later on the 16th, the 17th, and most of the 18th brings intensity and contrast one’s holdings versus that of others.
Remember that new, full, and quarter moons are powerful times during the month. Actions taken at these times should be positive and well thought out. The quarter moons are in Leo on the 10th, the 11th and morning of the 12th and in Pisces on the 26th, 27th, and much of the 28th.
Israel continues in the news. In their birth chart, early Scorpio rises, a Taurus Sun is in the 7th, and Moon, Pluto, Saturn, and Mars are in Leo in the 10th. Iran has three planets in Aquarius forming a grand cross with Israel’s planets. This is a tense relationship. The U.S. Embassy moved to Jerusalem under a Taurus new moon, a new start. Uranus in Taurus for 7 years starting in March, will bring unusual events to Israel.
The Pluto Uranus square is over. It made the extreme unpredictable and the unpredictable more extreme. When you heard about events that are unusually bad, like tornadoes ( Moore OK.) and earthquakes, Sandy, the Boston Marathon bombing, the Colorado floods, the Philippines typhoon, the Washington mudslide, the IL F4, the Ca. Drought, and the recent floods in Texas, the floods and fires in Ca. In ’17, and the hurricanes of ’17, this was one of the culprits. This aspect existed in the early 30s. I have concluded that this square also represented among other conflicts, the conflict between the left (Uranus) and the right (Capricorn). I have finally resolved it in my own mind. With so much news coverage of the conflicting positions, I see it as an opportunity to see the good that the left has to offer and to see the good that the right has to offer. I’ll be writing a paper on the Uranus/Pluto square soon and posting on facebook. Friend me. I’ll include the good things that are coming from this square like new discoveries about death and the afterlife. This long term square ended at mid-May. P.S. The square may still have some punch since Uranus is back in Aries from Nov. until March. I say this because of the ongoing turmoil. Or was the recent Uranus/Mars square the culprit?
Days that look fairly harmonious this month are: 3, 4, 8, 12, 20, 23, 25, 27, & 31. For really important events, it requires a deeper look. Part of the magic of Astrology is how much better things go when we start things on good days.
Extra special note: I’m recommending that people read Covey, Dyer, and Chopra during their birth month. They write about achieving success and happiness and this is what the Sun is about in our charts. During the birth month we have the opportunity to start a new cycle of success and these authors have great ideas on how to do it. For those who want to get in on the ground floor of understanding existence and self-improvement, C.C. Zain’s Church of Light books will make you an astrologer and a metaphysician. These books teach us that there is a supernatural dimension in and around us that makes life subtle and interesting. And that Astrology gives us helpful information in innumerable situations. And finally, that we have the power to change our lives through Astrology and by harmonizing our feelings and our thinking.
