I write this as music unfurls in the background. I’m looking ahead, watching the cosmic clock turn so I can take advantage of it and I can share that advantage with you. This is Taurus time. We’re reeling with the recent solar eclipse. Taurus provides us with the literal landing-pad that is our existence. This ground, this earth, the mud stuck to carrot roots. There’s nothing we have or eat, or wear, or live in, that doesn’t come from this earth. And this earth is part of the cosmos. From the beginning of the month until May 20th when the energy shifts to the curiosity of Gemini, the focus is on the most grounded aspect of your life. Take note of how you move through this month. It will tell you much about your very nature.
May begins resonating with the April 30th 10° Taurus solar eclipse New Moon. Fresh start at a new month.
The morning of May 2nd, gracious Venus leaves the serenity (or victimization) of Pisces for bold Aries. It’s more than time to put yourself first my friend!
Expect the unexpected over the next few days as the Sun meets with crazy Uranus, exact on the 4th. Things change. Be flexible.
A surge of energy is expected May 10th when Jupiter enters fiery Aries for the first time in 12 years. Jupiter stays in Aries until late October giving your summer a feeling of independence.
The same day, May 10th, Mercury turns retrograde until June 3rd. As always, Mercury retrograde is an opportunity to step outside of “regular” time. How can you do that my friend?
The Scorpio Full Moon on May 15th and 16th is also a lunar eclipse. It may be a little overwhelming. Venus meets Chiron in Aries, tend to what needs healing now. Stern Saturn squares the Sun and Moon – long term effects abound. Mars is approaching dreamy Neptune – sometimes you don’t know what to do. It’s okay. Give yourself plenty of psychic space to feel your way forward. These are big times. Your best self needs to release big feelings.
May 17th is a good day to guard your immune system when Mars and Neptune meet in Pisces. This energy remains over the next few days 1° from the Neptune/Jupiter conjunction. We want this energy to be the manifestation of our best hopes and dreams, not the emergence of a nightmare. Be sensible. Keep your vibrant dream alive by going inward and working with your spiritual body.
Late on May 20th the Sun enters Gemini and speeds things up. It’s time to connect the proverbial dots, the points of your life in a tapestry of integration. Immediately, the Sun meets retrograde Mercury and old plans and conversations are repeated. Check things twice. Take time to rest your mind.
On the 22nd Mercury reenters Taurus. What was the container like that you were forming for your Seed? Tend to it now.
May 24th, Mars happily enters its own sign of Aries. Watch out world! Things get going now and maybe much bigger and more aggressive than anyone wants as Mars meets Moon and Jupiter. May peace prevail! Please.
The next few days, peaking on the 28th and 29th, Mars connects tightly with abundant, international Jupiter. I trust your arrows are aimed toward harmony, my friends.
Venus picks May 28th to enter her home sign of Taurus. Money speaks.
The 9° Gemini New Moon on May 30th helps you to bring the puzzle pieces together. Connect the dots. Think for yourself. Promise at this New Moon to follow your own truth.
The month ends as things come together. And always remember: you matter, we’re all connected, Earth is our home and love is our destination.
