(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 Taurus, Gemini, and Cancer. Whatever we have in our own charts, we also become these qualities temporarily. Taurus possesses, Gemini thinks, and Cancer feels. The Sun in weeks 1, 2, and 3, and Venus in week 1, and Mercury through the 3rd are in practical Taurus. This turns our focus to money, comfort, and enjoying nature. The Sun in week 4, Venus in weeks 2, 3, and 4, and Mercury after the 3rd are in Gemini and this shows us pouring attention and energy into thought, talk, and travel. Mercury goes retrograde on the 29th, so, let’s practice focusing. Mars is in Cancer and shows us pouring energy into domestic issues. Saturn and Jupiter are in the sign, Aquarius and will be there for 1 year and 2 years respectively. This enhances emphasis on people, ideas, the future and global issues. Social and intellectual events increase. Jupiter in Aquarius lasts until ’22 with the exception of May, June, and July, when it is in Pisces. Saturn will be in Aquarius until Spring ’23. Jupiter can bring good things to humanity, for example, the vaccine. Saturn brings difficulties but also new goals. The more positive we are, the better it will go. Jupiter does go into its home sign Pisces on the 13th. This will last through July and adds mystery, insight, empathy, and spirituality to our lives. Uranus in Taurus until 2026 brings the unexpected in finances, and the original in art. For Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius dealing with the unexpected or disruptive is on tap. This will take good managerial skills and the ability to know what we can manage, and what we can’t. With Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius, they connect with Uranus, tripling the effect on these fixed signs. Jupiter will do this for a couple of months early in 2021, Saturn for 2021 and also later ’22. So, resting, being one of the good guys, and not living on the edge are important. Most importantly, Saturn is squaring Uranus for this year; this can bring unexpected trouble. So we need to stay on top of things. Neptune is still in its long term stay in its own sign of altered states, Pisces. Meditation can help us do this in legal and safe ways. Pluto is still in Capricorn and brings transformation to government and business.
A New Moon in Taurus later on the 9th, the 10th and 11th brings a new start in enjoying life. A Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius on the 26th and the 27th stimulates perception of facts and developing opinions. Under eclipses, we should find something safe but expansive to do.
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 Aquarius on the 3rd and 4th and in Leo on the 17th, 18th, and much of the 19th.
Days that look fairly harmonious this month are: 1, 2, 5, 6, 13 , 15, 16, 21, 25, 30, & 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.
