Special note: Here’s wishing all of you the best in May. The emphasis this month is on the signs Pisces, Aries, Taurus, and Gemini. Whatever we have in our own charts, we also become these qualities temporarily. Pisces believes, Aries takes action, Taurus calms, and Gemini notices. Mars is in Pisces in weeks 1, 2, and 3; our actions are behind the scenes and restricted. Mars meets Neptune in Pisces and our actions turn mysterious. In week 4 when Mars enters Aries, its own sign, our activity is at center stage. Jupiter is in Pisces in weeks 1 and 2; our focus is on the expansion of our inner lives. When it goes to Aries on the 10th our expansion becomes more obvious and enthusisastic. And in late May, Jupiter and Mars together signal big time activity. Venus in young and lively Aries makes us eager to be social. It squares Pluto while in Aries and requires that force be used well by all parties. The Sun in weeks 1, 2, and 3 and Mercury in week 4 are in Taurus and and bring us the comforts and beauties of spring. The Sun and Mercury connection with Uranus brings surprises. At mid-month, the Sun and in week 4, Mercury square Saturn and this brings concerns. The Sun in week 4 and Mercury in weeks 1, 2, and 3 are in Gemini; our awareness is sharp and our interest is peaked. Our bodies, minds and tongues are in motion. Mercury is retrograde from the 10th, so let’s pay attention. Saturn, is still in Aquarius for another year. It can bring difficulty to Aquarian things like: humanity, knowledge, friends, hope, and the future. It is important that we think , act, and behave in positive ways to counter this. This affects the world and us personally. Saturn can promote drive and get us where we want to go. 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. Resting, being one of the good guys, and not living on the edge are important. Saturn is squaring Uranus this year; this can bring unexpected trouble, and trouble with technical things. So we need to stay on top of things. Fortunately this square is weaker from March through July. Jupiter is in its own sign, Pisces until mid May and again in Nov. and Dec. of this year. Jupiter, the good planet, is strong in Pisces and promotes the emotional, psychological, and metaphysical. 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. Jupiter, while, in Pisces, joins Neptune and they enhance the emotional and metaphysical together. They can bring windfalls.
Pluto is still in Capricorn and brings transformation to government and business.
A New Moon Solar Eclipse on April 30th and May 1st in Taurus is a new start in enjoying life. This is a solar eclipse and stimulates us. Money, nature, and comforts are important. Uranus nearby can bring surprises. A Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio on the 14th, 15th, and very early morning of the 16th contrasts the seasonal differences of spring and fall and contrasts yours versus mine. Under eclipses let’s do something sensible but special. Another New Moon in Gemini on the afternoon of the 29th, the 30th, and 31st is a new start in thnking.
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 7th, the 8th, and much of the 9th and in Aquarius on the 20th, 21st, and morning of the 22nd.
Days that look fairly harmonious this month are: 6, 10, 11, 12, 13, 20, 23, 24, & 25. 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 that we have the power to change our lives through Astrology and by harmonizing our feelings and our thinking. The Church is actually a mystery school, such that members are initiated into the mysteries. Euripides wrote that happy is the one who is blessed with the knowledge of the divine mysteries.
