Astrology of May 2019

The Astrology of May reveals many of the same themes that have dominated the cosmic airwaves for the entire beginning part of this year. In particular, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto make strong appearances in the May 4th New Moon, signaling the transformational beat of recent months. Pluto is once again very powerfully emphasized in his partile square with Eris, the new planet that is in some ways a twin energy to Pluto, centered in a similar part of the solar system, although even further out, and about the same size, implying a connection to the unseen and largely unknown depths within us all. In my research, which is slowly becoming more generally accepted by the astrological community, she can be shown to be a feminine warrior archetype, fiercely in support of soul intention, or our most sincere and deeply-held values, encouraging action that aligns with this profound inner purpose. Pluto also remains closely parallel and conjunct to Saturn as the month begins, with both of these powerhouse planetary energies having recently stationed in late April. Because they are moving extremely slowly in the sky, this increases their apparent influence. Uranus is also prominent in these May skies. Having recently entered the antithetically themed sign of Taurus, Uranus is featured by the New Moon being in the same sign, widely conjunct, with the Moon also in close parallel. At the Full Moon of May 18th, Uranus is clearly emphasized by his close conjunction with Venus, the Taurus ruler. Additionally, with regard to Neptune, Venus lies in perfect semi-sextile in the New Moon timing, with Uranus in perfect semi-square to Neptune, so that this planet of otherworldly and mystical proclivities is also extremely activated. With all five putative outer planets, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, and Eris, so distinctly emphasized now, we might well expect that the massive structural challenges that the society is facing, together with all of us as individuals, will come to a further level of intensity this month, leading to near-breakdown. But, as it is always good to remember, breakdown also can be the necessary prelude to breakthrough.

The prominence of Neptune in the astrology of May leads to several different ways of looking at the month’s effects. Importantly, the Neptune archetype fits in with Uranus and Pluto as agents of the trans-personal and the transformational. Uranus represents the unexpected and startling vision of possibility, including the potential for jumping the tracks of existing predilections and swinging for the fence, transcending the bounds of the pre-existing status quo. Neptune in turn frees us up from routine expectations and mind-numbing conformity. With our physical eyes tightly shut and yet our minds wide open, Neptune encourages us to dream and to dream big, taking on to a certain degree the transformational nature of more intensely changeful Pluto. Pluto, of course, represents the death and rebirth that true transformational change implies. As far as the other indications of strong Neptune, now occurring, most typically perhaps, is Neptune’s reputation as a foggy and indistinct purveyor of fantasy and misconception, together with the potential for self-deception. This is the hallmark of our propagandistic current culture, with its cry of “fake news!” whenever one side finds online evidence that seems to contradict its stated mandate. Then, too, Neptune represents the spiritual dimension of our lives, the compassionate feeling of oneness with all sentient beings that characterizes us as humans at our very highest. As stated in the Tao Te Ching, one who recognizes all people to be a part of oneself is a sound person to guard them.

The interesting presence of Eris in close square to Pluto, for last month and most of this one, also deserves further mention. This partile square between Eris and Pluto returns at the beginning, and then again near the end, of 2020. This is a dynamic configuration, made still more potent by the presence in opposition to Eris of another of these new “dwarf” planets, Haumea, which also seems to be quite powerful in charts, representing “profound connection with Nature.” Makemake, the fourth largest of these new dwarf planets that are officially named, representing, along with Haumea, an activist connection to Nature, and to earth issues, is also prominent, being opposite Chiron in the current astrological patterning. And indeed, we have seen an up tick in earth activism in the current zeitgeist, with efforts such as the “Green New Deal” gaining popularity. This T-square to Pluto lasts throughout the month, and distinctly emphasizes the transformational intensity of these fraught times, as represented by the focal point of Pluto. In the May 4th Taurus New Moon, we also find Mars opposite a relatively slow-moving Jupiter, in his own sign of Sagittarius, another spiritual factor, similar in its own way to strong Neptune. In the midst of chaos, optimism for the future since, at least, change is near. Of course, Jupiter famously conjoins Saturn and Pluto in a triple conjunction neat the end of 2020, representing a strong push for the total metamorphosis of society itself at that critical juncture.

We also have briefly an indication of a potentially more conscious appraisal of our situation coming up on May 21st, when the Sun enters Gemini in perfect conjunction with Mercury, Gemini’s ruler. The difficult factor of Chiron, the Wounded Healer, is also powerfully present with these other strong indicators, since Chiron in early Aries remains semi-sextile to Uranus, partile opposed by Makemake, and is squared by Mars as he moves further into the sign of Cancer, after the 21st. The indications are this: that as we become more aware of our inner wounding, we can begin to move beyond this barrier to becoming all that we can be, thus fulfilling our spiritually fore-ordained destiny. May this be so !

A May Month of Picking Up the Pieces

The astrology of May features Mercury, Venus, Saturn, Uranus, Pluto, and Eris. The biggest news is Mercury, in that the Taurus New Moon from the middle of the last week of April, and that therefore kicked off the current lunation cycle, revealed a prominent Mercury-Uranus conjunction, with Mercury still in retrograde just one degree away, moving quite slowly and about to turn around to direct motion just as this month gets underway. While covering only two degrees of late Aries the...

An Enlightening, Inward Turning and Activating Month of January

The astrology of January features Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, and Eris. Both retrograde Mercury and Mars in Pisces are strongly placed this month, being aspected by the potent Capricorn New Moon from the last few days of December. Mars being conjunct Neptune in this timing, you can count on it that, for the entire thirty-day cycle of this lunation, lasting to January 27th, there is uncertainty of activity and of outcome. Mercury, also highlighted at the New...

This is another crucial month for you, Aries, with depth researches continuing to provide clues to your development. The powerful New Moon of Saturday, May 4th, landing in the middle degrees of financially- and materially-oriented Taurus, is both practical and eventful for you, and yet also partakes of the beyond. In one way this lunar cycle is all about the Benjamins, and yet in another framework, the real issue how and where you can harness your energy to better serve the dictates of your heart. Your worldview is expanding; your concept of your work in the world has been evolving mightily in recent months, and there are further surprises and changes of direction in store for you. Everything you hold dear is undergoing a sea change. Articulating and validating your values is what is really on the line. That is the subtle and vitally important message of these daunting times, questioning how well you can attune yourself to begin to act strictly from the standpoint of what you hold inside.


The following was written by this month's guest columnist Adam Elenbaas of The Nightlight Astrology School



The month begins just as Mercury in Aries in your first house is conjunct Eris and squaring Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn in your tenth house of career, and just as Mercury and your ruling planet Mars, in Gemini, are forming a sextile with mutual reception (May 1st to May 3rd). With Saturn and Pluto having also recently turned retrograde in your tenth house of career, you are likely considering a difficult decision, concentrating your mental and physical energy on something very intensely at work, or communicating your principles and beliefs with greater conviction and force within the workplace. With Mars also set to oppose Jupiter in Sagittarius in your ninth house of higher beliefs between May 4th and 6th you may also be arguing, debating, or fighting for something you believe in, or challenging conventional wisdom or authority figures.

On May 4th, the New Moon in Taurus will fall in your second house of money, resources, and expenditures, placing an emphasis on activities and events related to these topics in the lunar cycle ahead. With Venus also set to enter Taurus on the May 15th, this should be a good month for growing your business or for partnering with others in financial matters. However, you should also be careful of overspending, or overindulging, especially during the second half of the month once Venus enters your second house where she is sometimes prone to high living.

Between May 7th and 8th, Mercury will conjoin Uranus in Taurus, which may also provide you with some sudden flashes of insight and innovation related to finances or business. However, don’t be surprised if it also brings a few unexpected expenses along with it.

Between May 6th to May 10th, Venus in your home sign of Aries will move through squares to Saturn, the South Node, and Pluto in Capricorn in your tenth house of career while also conjuncting Eris in Aries and making a trine to Jupiter in Sagittarius in your ninth house of the higher mind. As you are defining your commitments and values more clearly this month, certain professional relationships are defining themselves and taking on greater importance. However, the need to make a serious commitment or decisions about the future is also weighing on you. It’s important to consider the idea that just because something is good, and true, doesn’t mean it will not come with imperfections. You will need a dose of patience and compromise to move through this period gracefully, without becoming overly rigid or inflexible.

Between May 10th and May 15th, the Sun in Taurus in your second house of money, resources, and expenditures will make trines to Saturn, the South Node, and Pluto in your tenth house of career, creating a time of productivity and hard work. This is a favorable time for building or restructuring a business, or for making practical changes at work or in relation to finances.

On May 16th, your ruling planet Mars will enter the sign of its fall, Cancer, and move into the fourth house of home, family, roots, and property, where it will stay well into June. Don’t be surprised if you are feeling emotionally conflicted about issues related to home or family, or if you are feeling weaker or more vulnerable in the days and weeks to come. This transit reflects a time of increased emotional volatility and sensitivity in relation to your domestic sphere of activities.

On May 18th, the Full Moon in Scorpio will land in your eighth house of death, rebirth, and other people’s money, while Venus conjoins Uranus in Taurus in your second house of money, resources, and expenditures. This is yet another powerful moment of catharsis or revolution this month that is also related to money and finances, but also to friendships or romantic relationships.

On May 22nd to the 24th, Mars in Cancer in your fourth house of home, family, and foundations will square Chiron, the Wounded Healer, in Aries in your 1st house, suggesting a moment of deeper emotional, and possibly even physical healing. There may be some connection here to family or ancestral karma, as well.

Finally, from May 29th to the 30th, Mercury in Gemini in your third house of the mind and communication will square Neptune in Pisces in your twelfth house of dissolution and surrender, and then oppose Jupiter in Sagittarius in your ninth house of the higher mind. This sequence points to a time of deeper questioning, doubt, learning, surrendering, introspection, and listening to close the month. You are likely feeling of “two minds” about something all month long, but don’t worry, by the end of the month a mental and emotional synthesis is possible.

This is a great month for many of your activities and predilections, Taurus. There is energy available in spades for you as the New Moon of May 4th lands directly in your sign, with your ruler, Venus, partaking of Neptunian fantasy, and with Trickster Uranus powerfully activated. This implies amazing cosmic coincidences and other surprising events, with also the unexpected enlightenment that you can glean from these departures from the norm. That is, provided you can stay alert and keep your eyes on the true prize. Your work is important to you right now, although more as a path to allowing your inner values greater scope. You are called to a mission of service to a more heart-felt and natural alignment. Only the sky is the limit on what you can currently accomplish by staying true to your intuition. Partners aid you in the further exploration of intimacy with your own insides, as your set of beliefs changes beyond all previous recognition.

The month begins just as Mercury in Aries in your twelfth house of dissolution and surrender is conjunct Eris and squaring Saturn, as well as Pluto, in Capricorn in your ninth house of the higher mind, and just as Mercury and Mars in Gemini are forming a sextile with mutual reception (May 1st to May 3rd). With Saturn and Pluto having also recently turned retrograde in your ninth house, you are being invited to look at the difference between limiting ideas and beliefs versus those that support or sustain you. To get the most out of this transit, it’s important that you give yourself plenty of time and space to think and process your thoughts, otherwise you are likely to feel frustrated and run the risk of getting stuck in a stubborn or rigid approach to solving your problems.

On May 4th, the New Moon will fall in your home sign of Taurus, emphasizing the importance of your physical health and well being in the month ahead. With Venus also aspecting Neptune in your eleventh house of future plans, this is a very idealistic period for you. It’s also a great time to birth a new project or to press the reset button on your physical and psychological health.

Between May 5th and May 6th, Mars in Gemini in your second house of finances will oppose Jupiter in Sagittarius in your eighth house. This is a time of increased financial opportunities and growth, as well as financial obligations or expenditures. It’s also a good time to take an aggressive approach to business or investing but be careful that you do not unnecessary risks.

Between May 7th and May 8th, Mercury will conjoin Uranus in your home sign of Taurus, bringing a spark of change, innovation, and insight. You may experience a moment of unusual mental clarity, or you may find that you are receiving unexpected news or learning something new and exciting. You may also feel the need to express yourself in unusual or eccentric ways.

Between May 6th and May 10th, your ruling planet, Venus, from the sign Aries in your twelfth house of dissolution and surrender will square Saturn, the South Node, and Pluto in Capricorn in the ninth house of the higher mind, while simultaneously conjuncting Eris and making a trine to Jupiter in Sagittarius in your eighth house of death and other people’s money. During this period, it’s likely that you will be looking at conflicting values or philosophies in your relationships, perhaps specifically related to money, finances or business. You might be feeling somewhat frustrated this month, but you should be careful not to act from a rash or overly rigid or impulsive position. You will be thinking much more clearly when Venus finally enters your home sign of Taurus on May 15th, at which point a clear solution to challenges is more likely.

Between May 10th and the 15th, the Sun in Taurus will make trines to Saturn, the South Node, and Pluto in Capricorn, and on May 14th, a Grand trine in Earth will take shape while the Moon is in Virgo. All of this marks a period of greater productivity and practicality. You are likely to feel something of a natural high during this period, as Taurus has a natural affinity for the earthy progress and practical action indicated here.

On May 18th, the Full Moon in Scorpio will land in your seventh house of partnership, while Venus will conjoin Uranus in Taurus in your first house, bringing with it a moment of culmination and change in all your relationships. The need to individuate, to break free, and to free yourself from unnecessary constraints will be quite strong during this Full Moon. This might also wind up playing out especially strong in your intimate partnerships.

From May 22nd to the 24th, Mars in Cancer in your third house will square Chiron in Aries in your twelfth house, bringing with it a moment of inner wounds coming up, potentially leading to deep emotional and mental healing. It’s a good time to speak directly, and honestly, with those that you love. However, you should also be careful of being blindsided by someone who may see you as the perfect place to dump or offload their most intense feelings and needs at this time, which may not be a good thing.

From May 29th to the 30th, Mercury in Gemini in your second house of money and finances will square Neptune in Pisces in your eleventh house of friends, allies, and groups, and then immediately oppose Jupiter in Sagittarius in your eighth house of other people’s money. This sequence closes out the month by bringing a synthesis of some kind related to money or business. You are likely looking at some significant decisions around the sale or purchase of something, or at the giving or sharing of resources, perhaps for the sake of a higher philosophical or spiritual purpose. The opportunity for your time and energy to be directed toward something of higher importance is rare and sacred, so remember to make your biggest decisions this month based on your core values and beliefs.

This month represents a mystical journey to the inside, Gemini, providing an important contrast to the hard and fast logic of normal waking life. You may find yourself slipping into dreamtime at unforeseen junctures. A valuable process of deep intuition is available to you now, waking or sleeping, to the extent that you choose to tune in to it, as your awareness is flooded with information stemming directly from the deeper layers of your psyche. You have in recent weeks been through a somewhat trying time of getting more familiar with the profound and hidden places within you, including inner wounding. This month, in the follow-up to unexpected realizations, you are getting a better handle on them, and even beginning to recognize in them a significant part of your spiritual path. In the days following the Full Moon weekend of the 18th, you will emerge into greater conscious understanding of all that you are, and will be better able to meet physical world obligations from the standpoint of a more integrated approach.


The following was written by this month's guest columnist Adam Elenbaas of The Nightlight Astrology School



Between May 1st and May 3rd, your ruling planet Mercury, from the sign of Aries in the eleventh house of friends and dreams, will be making a square to Saturn in Capricorn in your eighth house of death and rebirth, while also conjuncting Eris and squaring Pluto, while forming a sextile with Mars in your home sign of Gemini, creating what is traditionally called a “mutual reception.” Given that Saturn and Pluto also recently turned retrograde in your eighth house, this is an important moment of exploring what resources are available to you for the sake of your dreams and ambitions and which resources are no longer viable, or which might even represent a compromise of your integrity. You may be feeling as ambitious and innovative as ever right now, but it’s going to be important to think carefully about who or what you want to partner with as you pursue your dreams and goals. In the long run, it will be worth it if you act on your highest principles rather than entertaining complicated compromises.

On May 4th, the New Moon in Taurus will land in your twelfth house of dissolution and surrender, suggesting that you may struggle in the month ahead to let go of things that are no longer serving you, or to work through personal doubts or even fatigue or physical exhaustion. However, when the Sun finally enters your home sign of Gemini on May 21st, any residual heaviness should lift significantly.

Between May 5th and May 6th, Mars in your home sign of Gemini will oppose Jupiter in Sagittarius in your seventh house of relationships, energizing you through spirited or even competitive exchanges with others. Be careful of some degree of intellectual bravado right now. You may be easily triggered or baited into unnecessary arguments.

Between May 7th and 8th, your ruling planet Mercury will conjoin Uranus in Taurus in your twelfth house of dissolution and surrender, prompting a moment of intellectual, mental, and communicative breakthrough, discovery, and possibly even rebellion or recklessness. Use care when voicing your opinions or ideas, and don’t be surprised if you also receive some unexpected news at this time, or if the atmosphere around you is somewhat erratic or destabilizing. Be careful of the temptation to impulsively abandon your responsibilities or to go AWOL right now, as well.

Between May 6th to the 10th, Venus in Aries in your eleventh house of friends, allies, and groups, will square Saturn, the South Node of the Moon, and Pluto in Capricorn in your eighth house of death and other people’s money, while also conjuncting Eris and making a trine to Jupiter in Sagittarius in your seventh house of relationships. During this period, you may find that you are once again having to make some difficult choices related to your friends or social circles, or that you are considering whether to accept some level of support or help being offered to you by others. On the other hand, just as some doors are closing, or some forms of support may no longer be viable, you may find that newer and even better forms of support and relationships are opening to you.

Between May 10th and the 15th, the Sun in Taurus in your twelfth house of surrender and dissolution will make trines to Saturn, the South Node, and Pluto in Capricorn in your eighth house of death and other people’s money. You are going to be working hard to turn a difficult or stressful situation into a time of practical productivity. This process will culminate on May 18th when the Full Moon in Scorpio lands in your sixth house of work, sickness, and service, just as Venus is conjoining unpredictable Uranus in Taurus in your twelfth house. You are on the verge of a breakthrough, but it’s clear that the forces of necessity will be pressuring you to innovate and find new pathways toward success, especially when unexpected changes at work and in your social life appear.

On May 22nd to the 24th, Mars in Cancer in your second house of finances will square Chiron in Aries in the eleventh house, indicating a moment of greater awareness of inner wounding and the obstacles that this might make for feeling free to move forward with your truest intention. Deeper emotional healing for you around both the topics of money and resources as well as friendships or allies will also eventually become available. Again, it appears as though there are going to be some big shifts this month regarding who and what you consider to be your best allies, aids or resources. As these social changes happen, they might temporarily throw a wrench in your wheels, but it’s likely that in short time, as you heal and integrate these experiences, you will be finding exciting new resources and opportunities.

Finally, from May 29th to the 30th, your ruling planet Mercury in Gemini will square Neptune in Pisces in your tenth house and then oppose Jupiter in Sagittarius in your seventh house, bringing with it a moment of philosophical or ideological catharsis. You might be considering a new philosophy or business strategy, or you might find that you are working through the terms of a new agreement or work contract. Whatever the case might be, look for the perfect balance between careful, rational thinking and idealistic optimism.

You are living large these days, Cancer, investigating possibilities for a future path that includes all of yourself, top to bottom, into the mix of what you are attempting to accomplish. You are seeking a way to satisfy your obligations in the normalized world of events and schedules while honoring your understanding of what goes on in another world entirely, far below the surface layers of your personality. Your current pathway forward includes, as well, concepts of service to others around you. Friendships and group affiliations that you favor are one key to cementing your grasp of these new realities. What is transforming for you most distinctly is the way that you choose to incorporate the perspective and the presence of important partners into your life process, as has been the case for many months. The Full Moon weekend of May 18th brings your creativity to bear on this issue, as you strive to integrate more thoroughly within your own psyche the result of connections that you make with others.


The following was written by this month's guest columnist Adam Elenbaas of The Nightlight Astrology School



Between May 1st and May 3rd, Mercury in Aries in your tenth house of career will be making a square to Saturn in Capricorn in your seventh house of relationships, while also conjuncting Eris, and squaring Pluto, as well as forming a sextile with Mars in Gemini, creating what is traditionally called a “mutual reception.” Given that Saturn and Pluto also recently turned retrograde in your seventh house, you are likely considering the best strategy for a serious change at work or in your intimate relationships. You might be planning a careful exit strategy from a job, looking for ways to consolidate your time and energy, or defining your boundAries and values more clearly in a romantic relationship. Whatever the case might be, this month it’s important that you get clear about what you can and can’t commit to and then make plans to implement the changes most needed.

On May 4th, the New Moon in Taurus falls in your eleventh house of allies, friends, and groups, indicating that you are likely to find helpful new resources and support from others in the month ahead. You are also likely to enjoy making new future plans for yourself or speculating about prospective life directions.
Between May 5th and 6th, Mars in Gemini in your twelfth house will oppose Jupiter in Sagittarius in your sixth house, bringing with it a period of heightened mental, intellectual, and communicative energy. You may be more inclined to argumentation and debate during this period, or you may find that you are struggling to stay focused as the atmosphere is filled with a temporary fire cloud of combative, mental energy.

Between May 7th and May 8th, Mercury will also conjoin Uranus in Taurus in your eleventh house, suggesting the possibility of innovation and breakthroughs in your social life, among colleagues, or in groups you belong to. Don’t be surprised if you receive some unexpected news. This is also a great time for finding creative forms of support, or even new technological resources.

Between May 6th and May 10th, Venus in Aries in your tenth house of career will also square Saturn, the South Node, and Pluto in Capricorn, while simultaneously conjuncting Eris and trining Jupiter in Sagittarius. Again, the importance of making critical decisions about the use of your time and energy, both at work and in relationships is at play. This time, while you may be finding exciting new forms of support at work, or you may be riding a wave of growth, the acceleration you’re experiencing will also force you to look at those people or relationships that are limiting you, or forcing you to define yourself in more committed ways.

Between May 10th and the 15th, the Sun in Taurus in your eleventh house of friends, groups, and allies, will trine Saturn, the South Node of the Moon, and Pluto in Capricorn in your seventh house. During this period, on May 14th, the Moon in Virgo in your third house of the mind and communication will also get in on things, creating a grand earth trine. This is going to be a highly productive and practical period. If you have done the work of defining commitments and priorities earlier this month, then a lot of practical implementation and forward progress should take place right now.

You’ll likely find even more support is coming your way from friends, allies, or in groups on May 15th, as Venus, the planet of harmony and good fortune, also enters Taurus and moves into your eleventh house of friends and allies.

However, things will intensify in a more challenging way between May 16th and the 18th, as Mars will enter its fall in your home sign of Cancer, and then your ruling planet, the Moon, will be full in the sign of her fall, Scorpio, in your fifth house, just as Venus in Taurus conjoins erratic Uranus. This sequence points to a more volatile energy at the time of the Full Moon. Don’t be surprised if something comes along to slow your roll, if there are some unexpected changes in your relationships or among friends or colleagues, or even with your children if you have any. The waters right now are much choppier, but this Full Moon also points to a level of emotional catharsis that is a necessary part of the changes you are trying to make.

On May 22nd to the 24th, Mars in Cancer in your first house will square Chiron in Aries in your tenth house of career. You might be faced with a tense situation at work, or you might be compelled to advocate for someone in the workplace, or to assert some level of expertise or knowledge in a public forum. You may also be faced with a deeper lesson related to inner wounding, or other aspects of your own health and well being, so remember to take good care of yourself.

Finally, from May 29th to May 30th, Mercury in Gemini in your twelfth house of dissolution and surrender will square Neptune in Pisces in your ninth house of the higher mind and then oppose Jupiter in Sagittarius in your sixth house of work, sickness, and service. As the month winds down, you are moving into a deeper level of introspection, or philosophical and spiritual reflection. Honor your doubts and try to articulate the questions you have without feeling the need to be polarized within yourself or to externalize your doubts in the form of unnecessary power struggles or arguments with others. You are reaching a place of much deeper wisdom and understanding, but it will require that you move patiently as the answers you’re looking for will not present themselves if you try to force anything.

This is a terrific month for you, Leo! You have an energetic longing for a future that you can really live for, and what is more, are willing to act upon this rather idealistic fantasy. Your intuition is quite powerful, and you profit from glimpses of an inner truth that totally transcends consensus thinking, to the extent that you can stay open to possibility. An extreme focus on your work and your outer world presence yields to an important subtext, for only the path with heart will be of true satisfaction to you now. You have been mulling over the simplicity of day-to-day events and exercise regimens, and their corollary in work habits and overall good health, and likely finding room for improvement. As you proceed to act upon these realizations, you confirm your faith in yourself. Your creative juices are stirred to the max, and you have only to let go of inner obstacles in order to plunge ahead as the person that you were always meant to be.


The following was written by this month's guest columnist Adam Elenbaas of The Nightlight Astrology School



Between May 1st and May 3rd, Mercury in Aries in your ninth house of the higher mind will be making a square to Saturn in Capricorn in your sixth house of sickness, service, and work, while also forming a conjunction with Eris and square with transformational Pluto, plus a sextile with Mars in Gemini, creating what is traditionally called a “mutual reception.” Given that Saturn and Pluto also recently turned retrograde in your sixth house, you are likely moving through a time of potentially wearisome contraction and concentration. It’s a good time to look carefully at your higher beliefs and principles to see what hidden laws or intentions are guiding your day-to-day life. If changes or revisions are needed, your intellect should be sharp enough to help you make some solid executive decisions right now. It’s also an excellent time for studying, researching, or investigating something you’re interested in, as you’re likely to experience greater mental focus right now.

On May 4th, the New Moon in Taurus will fall in your tenth house of career, highlighting a period of growth in your professional life in the Moon cycle to come. Surprising events and new professional directions are more than likely as the month continues to unfold. Your tendency to resist the sudden changes that are being thrust upon you must be tempered by a willingness to stay open to possibility as you move through a chaotic yet rewarding period of time.

Between May 7th and 8th, Mercury will then conjoin Uranus in Taurus, bringing a further burst of creativity and rebellion into your career house. You may be utilizing a new form of technology or challenging conventional ideas and norms at work this month.

At nearly the same time, between May 5th and 6th, Mars in Gemini in your eleventh house of friends, groups and allies, will oppose Jupiter in Sagittarius in the fifth house of creativity, stirring up a firestorm of collaborative creative action to complement the creative spark of the Mercury/Uranus conjunction in your career house. It would not be surprising to see you joining with others in order to accomplish something or finding unexpected resources that will help you further your career or life goals.

Between May 10th to May 15th, your ruling planet, the Sun, will move through Taurus in your career house and make trines to Saturn, the South Node, and Pluto in the sixth house of work, sickness and service, temporarily making a grand earth trine on May 14th as the Moon also travels through Virgo in your house of money and resources. This is a tremendously practical and productive period, where you will likely find that you are implementing plans or starting to see the result of past efforts or work finally manifesting.

On May 18th, the Full Moon in Scorpio will then fall in your fourth house of home and family, while Venus is also conjoining Uranus in Taurus in your tenth house of career. Although this transit is brief, it will draw you temporarily into some very deep waters at home or in relation to property or family matters. You may also see a sudden change at work or possibly in your social life or in romantic relationships. The need for greater freedom, or the desire to take a creative risk, will likely be pitted against the need for emotional security or safety.

On May 22nd to the 24th, Mars in the sign of Cancer in your twelfth house of dissolution and surrender will square Chiron, the Wounded Healer, in Aries in your ninth house of the higher mind. Given that Mars in Cancer is also the ruler of this month’s Full Moon in your fourth house of home and family, you are probably doing some spiritual growth work around the topics of family and religion or spirituality at this time. It is also a moment to explore your relation to anger and emotional vulnerability. As a Leo, many people naturally look to you as a source of light and radiance. By having the courage to become more aware of – and even begin to correct – your own shortcomings right now, even if it’s painful, you will likely help others to heal as well.

Finally, From May 29th and May 30th, Mercury in Gemini in your eleventh house of friends, allies, and groups will square Neptune in Pisces in your eighth house of death and rebirth, while also opposing Jupiter in Sagittarius in your fifth house of creativity. This is a powerful alignment that brings with it an expansive and highly intuitive level of awareness and mental productivity. You may find that you are easily grasping complex ideas or even experiencing heightened states of consciousness or unusual synchronicities during this period. Don’t be shy about asking big questions because you are likely to find some big answers, if you do.

Your worldview is shifting, Virgo, as has been brewing for quite a while, and especially during these past few weeks. This month, you inhabit a larger conscious focus on your beliefs and ch Erished values, as certain concepts that you have been playing with in your mind come to a head. Your attention is drawn to the most important aspects of your recent changes in this area. You are also focused on your self-expression, both with real-world success and your creativity in general. Partners are powerful in all this, as you attempt to steer a middle course between stoic practicality and idealized relationship. After the Full Moon weekend of May 18th and continuing through Tuesday, May 21st, as your spiritually based evolutionary development carries on apace, your outer world statement is ready to more fully blossom. You are going for a deeper connection between public statement and private learning, and in some ways much of what has been going on has been a weeks- or even months-long preparation for just that.


The following was written by this month's guest columnist Adam Elenbaas of The Nightlight Astrology School



Between May 1st and May 3rd, your ruling planet Mercury in Aries in your eighth house of death and rebirth will be making a square to Saturn in Capricorn in your fifth house of creativity and good fortune, while also conjuncting Eris, squaring Pluto, and forming a sextile with Mars in Gemini in your career house, creating what is traditionally called a “mutual reception.” Given that Saturn and Pluto also recently turned retrograde in your fifth house, you may experience some brief turbulence while working to revise or transform structures and patterns at work, or in relation to money, health, and finances. Whatever the challenges of this moment might be, you have the opportunity to make some course corrections that could eventually lead to a greater degree of personal and professional freedom and happiness in the long run.

On May 4th, the New Moon in Taurus will fall in your ninth house of the higher mind, pointing to a deeper and more contemplative Moon cycle to come.


This is followed by an exciting if not somewhat erratic conjunction between Mercury and Uranus in Taurus, also in your ninth house, between May 7th and May 8th, which also points to the potential for an intellectual or spiritual breakthrough. Opening yourself to new ways of thinking right now will lead to positive developments this month. Keep your eye out for unexpected teachers, messages, or messengers entering your life, as well.

Between May 5th and May 6th, Mars in Gemini in your tenth house of career will oppose Jupiter in Sagittarius in your fourth house of home and family, bringing similar philosophical, spiritual and intellectual themes into a dynamic tension between your work life and your family or home life.

Between May 6th to the 10th, the deeper transformational work you started off the month with is now focusing specifically on relationships, beauty, pleasure, and desire. Venus moving through the eighth house of transformation, begins to conjunct Eris, and in succession squares the heavy, karmic lineup of Saturn, the South Node of the Moon, and Pluto in your fifth house of self-expression, which was traditionally called “the Joy of Venus.” It’s a time of both reckoning and healing. It will be better to square up and face things right now than trying to avoid, resist, or deny the obvious.

Between May 10th and the 15th, things will become increasingly productive and practical. With the Sun in Taurus moving through your 9th house of the higher mind, you will be implementing new principles, techniques, rules, or ideas that will have an immediately positive affect on you. Watch for the most tangible results to manifest around May 14th, when the Moon in Virgo will create a temporary Grand Earth trine from your first house.

On May 18th, the Full Moon will fall in Scorpio in your third house of the mind, bringing an intense emotional and mental energy with it. With Venus simultaneously conjoining Uranus in Taurus in the ninth house of the higher mind, it’s likely that the philosophical transformation occurring in your life this month will be affecting your relationships or friendships quite powerfully.

On May 22nd to the 24th, Mars in Cancer in your eleventh house of friends, groups, and allies, will square Chiron, the Wounded Healer, in Aries in your eighth house of death and rebirth. You might be helping a friend to cope or heal with a loss right now, or you might be called on to offer support or guidance to someone in need. Alternatively, you could be called on to do some deeper healing work on your own, regarding friends, colleagues, or allies at this time, perhaps offering or accepting an olive branch.

Finally, from May 29th to the 30th, Mercury in Gemini in your tenth house of career will square Neptune in Pisces in your seventh house of relationships while also opposing Jupiter in Sagittarius in your fourth house of home and family. This moment represents a synthesis of opposing ideas and forces between your work or professional life, your social life and relationships, as well as your private home and family situation. As a child of Mercury, it’s sometimes difficult to find a consistent way of expressing yourself, but right now it’s incredibly important that you be clear within yourself, and with others. The truth in this moment really will set you free!

This is a powerful time for you, Libra, when your focus is on close connection with others, and yet with the larger factor being freer and more complete intimacy within yourself. You have for many weeks been investing emotional energy in the concept of relationship, and its actualization, and this month represents a further stage in these explorations. You currently possess a somewhat fragmented partnership orientation that moves from idealism to practicality. All the while you are coming closer to understanding who you are at depth. Nature as a path to spiritual awareness is also in your wheelhouse these spring days. You may be finding within yourself roads to earth activism that were previously unacknowledged. The Full Moon weekend of May 18th brings with it an important energetic hit of issues of self and other, representing a time when the arrival of relationship revelations comes to a peak. During the last third of the month, your public statement involves significant partners in your life to a far greater extent.


The following was written by this month's guest columnist Adam Elenbaas of The Nightlight Astrology School



Between May 1st and May 3rd, Mercury in Aries in your seventh house of relationships will be making a square to Saturn in Capricorn in your fourth house of home and family, while also forming a sextile with Mars in Gemini in your ninth house of the higher mind, creating what is traditionally called a “mutual reception.” Given that Saturn and Pluto also recently turned retrograde in your fourth house of home and family, you are likely experiencing a deeper transformation at the root or foundation of your life right now. The changes at the roots of your chart may also force you to look at differing values or spiritual beliefs in your family or your intimate relationships.

On May 4th, the New Moon in Taurus will fall in your eighth house of death and rebirth, pointing again toward a deeper time of transformation to come in the lunar cycle ahead. Intimacy concerns could arise as well, and also issues with over-idealizing partners, in what might turn out to be a rather intensely partner-oriented period of time through to the end of the month.

With Mercury also conjoining Uranus in Taurus between May 7th and 8th, and with Mars in Mercury’s sign of Gemini, opposing Sagittarius between May 5th and 6th, it’s likely that mental breakthroughs, or erratic and rebellious modes of thinking and communicating will also tone the weeks ahead. As uncomfortable as this may be for your harmony-loving ways, with your ruling planet Venus in Aries all the way until May 15th, there is no escaping the philosophical dynamism that is presenting itself in your relationships right now.

Between May 6th to the 10th, the same tensions will escalate as your ruling planet Venus, in the sign of Aries in your seventh house of relationships also gets into squares with Saturn, the South Node of the Moon, and Pluto in Capricorn in the fourth house of home, family and foundations, bringing issues of settling in with your dwelling space, root psychological meditations, and familial connection. Venus is also conjunct Eris during the 8th to the 11th; bringing further relationship issues to the fore, because of the added intensity represented by this new planet, a twin to Pluto, operating from the far reaches of our solar system.

Then, between May 10th and the 15th, the Sun in Taurus in your eighth house of death and rebirth will make trines to Saturn, the South Node, and Pluto in your fourth house of home and family. There will also be a brief grand earth trine formed with the Moon in Virgo on May 14th. Your ruler, Venus, also enters the sign of Taurus, bringing intimacy and depth researches to the fore. This period should introduce a high level of productivity, even if the work indicated requires you to dig into personal, familial, and relational shadows at a deeper level.

On May 18th, the Full Moon in Scorpio will land in your second house of finances, while Venus in Taurus conjoins revolutionary Uranus in the eighth house of other people’s money. Both transits bring unexpected disruptions or sudden changes in relation to money and resources, perhaps especially in relation to intimate relationships. While these changes could be for the better, it’s also possible that you’ll be strapped with an unexpected bill or emotional burden during this Full Moon window.

On May 22nd to the 24th, Mars in Cancer in your tenth house of career will square Chiron, the Wounded Healer, in Aries in your seventh house of relationships. Given that Mars is the ruler of this month’s Full Moon, this transit points to a moment of emotional confrontation and healing, either at work or in your intimate relationships, or perhaps both at once.

Finally, from May 29th to May 30th, Mercury in Gemini in your ninth house of the higher mind will square Neptune in Pisces in your sixth house of work, sickness, and service while also making an opposition to Jupiter in Pisces in your third house of the mind and communication. The atmosphere around you to close out the month is busy, filled with ideas, learning, and perhaps even travel. You are also poised to mobilize your ideas and thoughts, finding both practical and imaginative ways of putting your beliefs into action.


This is an exciting month for you, Scorpio, one in which you will delve more deeply into your own mind and heart as you come to better understand issues of intimacy with important or prospective partners. The very concept of relationship – and what it means for you – will be at the forefront of your explorations, which in actuality serves to further your understanding of yourself at deep levels. Your learning curve has been intense. You have, over recent months, been actively engaged in studying your communication style for clues to how you can better articulate your most sincere values, leading you to begin to act strictly from this place of dedication. You have all along been enlisted, with varying stages of conscious commitment, in a mission of service to the surrounding collective that will in time become productive. The great paradox is that, as you lose yourself by reaching out to important partners, and to others around you, including the enclosing social matrix, you ultimately find yourself.

The following was written by this month's guest columnist Adam Elenbaas of The Nightlight Astrology School



The month begins just as Mercury in Aries in your sixth house of work, sickness, and service squares Saturn in Capricorn in your third house of communication and the mind. At the same time, Mercury will also conjunct Eris, square Pluto, and make a sextile with Mars in Gemini in your eighth house of death and rebirth, creating what is traditionally called a “mutual reception” (May 1st to May 3rd). The mood around this transit is mentally intense, potentially combative, but also highly creative and productive. It should be easy to drill down to what is most essential and to act swiftly, or to adapt on the fly, in order to navigate a potentially tumultuous series of events.

On May 4th, the New Moon in Taurus will fall in your opposite sign, representing your seventh or relationship house, putting intimate relationships and even business partnerships in the spotlight for the lunation cycle ahead. Close connection and also delving down into your own depths becomes an important theme for the month ahead, and one feeds upon the other.

Between May 5th and 6th, combative Mars in Gemini, your traditional ruler, in your eighth house of transformation and other people’s money will oppose expansive Jupiter in your second house of finances and resources. It wouldn’t be surprising to see both big gains and possibly big expenditures during this transit. You may also be taking on a loan, making a large purchase or selling something, or perhaps paying off an old debt.

Then, between May 7th and May 8th, intelligent Mercury will conjoin unpredictable Uranus in Taurus in your seventh house of relationships, signaling a moment of creative potentiality in your relationships. Given that Mercury is also the ruler of your eighth house of money, you may find this transit is also related to finances, perhaps especially those related to a spouse or to someone else you are close with.

Between May 6th and the 10th, Venus in Aries in your sixth house of work, sickness, and service will square Saturn, the South Node, and Pluto in Capricorn in your third house of communication and the mind, while also conjuncting Eris and making a trine to Jupiter in Sagittarius in your second house of finances. Obligatory chores and challenging relationship dynamics may bring unexpected gains as the planets of harmony and abundance co-mingle with the planets of necessity and transformation. You may also be tempted to reach for a grandiose or overly indulgent solution to a problem you are feeling exhausted by, so be careful of paying too high a price for the relief or happiness you’re seeking.

Between May 10th and May 15th, the Sun in Taurus in your seventh house of relationships will make trines to the South Node, Saturn, and Pluto in Capricorn in your third house of communication and the mind. A grand earth trine will also briefly form on May 14th, as the Moon passes through Virgo in your eleventh house of friends, allies, and groups. This should be a highly productive period. You will likely find some very reliable forms of support, both from your immediate environment, within your relationships, and perhaps from friends or colleagues.

On May 18th, the Full Moon will fall in your home sign of Scorpio, brining a more vulnerable and sensitive period of time for your mental, emotional, and physical health. At the same time, Venus will conjoin Uranus in Taurus, sparking a revolutionary shift in relationship dynamics. You will be looking to strike a balance between the need for greater emotional security and the need for creative, sexual, or romantic freedom.

On May 22nd to the 24th, your ruling planet Mars, from the sign Cancer in your ninth house of the higher mind, will square Chiron, the Wounded Healer, in Aries in your sixth house of work and service, creating a moment of deeper learning and spiritual growth. Inner wounding could come up for great attention and conscious connection with. This transit brings with it a wave of intense healing and learning. You might be easily triggered or irritated at this time, especially by any higher authority figure that feels too rigid or oppressive.

Finally, from May 29th to May 30th, Mercury in Gemini in your eighth house of death and rebirth will square Neptune in Pisces in your fifth house while also opposing Jupiter in your second house. You may be inclined to take a significant financial risk at this time, or you might be considering a significant investment in a creative enterprise. Be careful of putting all of your eggs into one basket, as this transit might be prone to a little delusion and bravado, especially related to finances, purchases, lifestyle choices, or business decisions.

.

This is another month that leads you further into your own depths, Sagittarius, in search of answers to the fundamental question of who you are, on your own and with taking into account important partners in your life. As you explore inner mystical realities you are simultaneously navigating outer world concerns of schedules and responsibilities. Your fundamental mission of service to others, and to the world at large, is becoming more evident to you. Your values continue to be in transition, and perhaps also your finances, although the symbolic level of the latter would seem to be the most productive with regard to your evolutionary development. You may find with the emergence of the Sun into your opposite sign, taking place on May 21st, that partnership plays a powerful role in helping you to more completely define your sense of your own identity. What is becoming more and more apparent is that you feel unsatisfied unless you proclaim your most sincere beliefs and proceed to act upon them.


The following was written by this month's guest columnist Adam Elenbaas of The Nightlight Astrology School



From May 1st to May 3rd, Mercury in Aries in your fifth house of creativity and good fortune, will square Saturn, the South Node of the Moon, and Pluto in Capricorn in the second house of money and finances, and simultaneously trine your ruling planet, Jupiter in Sagittarius. The month therefore begins with a call to either curb your spending, or to make whatever lifestyle changes you can, even if it means working less, in order to experience a higher level of happiness and freedom. With Saturn and Pluto both having recently turned retrograde in your second house, you are no doubt moving through a period of revision, contraction, or restructuring around your time, money, energy, and resources. The good news is that with Jupiter in your home sign until the end of the year, these changes are likely happening as you are simultaneously feeling the urge to free up more time and space to live as authentically as possible.

On May 4th, the New Moon in Taurus will fall in your sixth house of work, sickness, and service, bringing a productive but potentially burdensome or work-heavy Moon cycle to come. Health issues might occupy your mind, or exercise regimens or other day-to-day habits, and the positive effects of potentially making adjustments to these.

Between May 5th and 6th, Mars in Gemini in your seventh house of relationships will oppose your ruling planet, Jupiter, from its home sign in Sagittarius. Watch for energizing intellectual or ideological exchanges with others during this time, and be careful of a general aura of bravado or machismo that could easily infect and cause harm to yourself or others.

Between May 7th and May 8th Mercury will conjoin Uranus in Taurus in your sixth house of work, sickness, and service, bringing with it a moment of erratic but potentially paradigm shifting energy. You may find some helpful resources or technology coming to your aid right now, or you may find that you are seeking out alternative or even holistic modalities for the sake of further learning and study.

Between May 6th and the 10th, Venus in Aries will also move through squares to Saturn, the South Node, and a conjunction to Eris, and square with Pluto in Capricorn in your second house. This transit further emphasizes issues around money and finances, although perhaps with an added emphasis on relationships, the arts, women, sexuality, or even children.

Between May 10th and the 15th, the Sun in Taurus in your sixth house of work and service will make trines to the South Node, Saturn, and Pluto. The Moon in Virgo will also briefly make a grand earth trine from the tenth house of career on May 14th. Overall this period should be highly productive, yielding practical and beneficial results, even if the underlying theme still relates back to the contractive and transformative energy of Saturn and Pluto in your second house of income and expenditures.

On May 18th, the Full Moon will then fall in Scorpio in your twelfth house of self-undoing, dissolution, and surrender, while Venus also conjoins Uranus in Taurus in your sixth house of work and service. This Full Moon brings a very potent and heavy emotional energy with it, especially considering the presence of the Moon’s ruling planet Mars in the eighth house of death and rebirth and its subsequent square to Chiron, the Wounded Healer, in Aries. On May 22nd to the 24th, there is a deeply healing, if not corrective or instructive energy behind this transit. However, accessing its deeper meaning will require you to explore your own fears or resistance to change or growth.

Finally, from May 29th to the 30th, Mercury in Gemini in your seventh house of relationships will square Neptune in Pisces in your fourth house of home, family, and foundations, while also opposing your ruling planet, Jupiter in Sagittarius. The possibility for a unique intellectual and spiritual synthesis is likely presenting itself right now as you are seeking to reconcile differing polarities within yourself and likely within your relationships. It’s quite possible that the conversations you are having right now will relate back to religious or spiritual karma that stems from your family of origin.

This is another month of development and growth for you, Capricorn. Over prior weeks and even months, you have been through the wringer, dealing with the realization that something fundamental needs to shift within you for your yearnings for grand accomplishment to be truly satisfied. Your very identity is on the line, and has been evolving, as you entertain novel ideas and flashes of inspiration for productions and creativity that are more than a little wild. Your self-expression is an important focus now, with inspiration coming your way that you do well not to stifle or ignore. It is the transformation of your very identity, and by extension the persona that you project, that is at stake. This month you are reaching one significant crux in this journey of discovery. Branching out in terms of your artistic possibilities must feel a little scary, at times, but is vitally necessary if you are to fully inhabit the life path that your higher Self has long intended for you to follow.


The following was written by this month's guest columnist Adam Elenbaas of The Nightlight Astrology School



Between May 1st and May 3rd, Mercury in Aries in your fourth house of home and family will make squares to your ruling planet, Saturn, as well as the South Node of the Moon and Pluto in your first house. Mercury will also simultaneously conjunct Eris and make a sextile to Mars in Gemini in your sixth house of work and service and a trine Jupiter in Sagittarius in your twelfth house of dissolution and surrender. Given that both Saturn and Pluto recently turned retrograde in your first house, you are likely going through a period of personal contraction, depth, breakdown and restructuring. This transit may add an aura of mental stimulation and busyness, perhaps specifically related to your home, property, or domestic life. Between May 6th and May 10th, Venus in Aries in your fourth house of home and family will also square Saturn, the South Node, and Pluto, while also making the trine to Jupiter in Sagittarius. So, for the first ten days or so of the month, you should be on the lookout for a wave of fiery energy on the home front, and in your intimate relationships, which will likely require most of your time and energy. It may not feel like the world’s most convenient timing but be careful not to react from an overly rigid or intolerant place to whatever is demanding your attention. Taking your time right now with pressing issues on the home front will lead to positive results later in the month.

On May 4th, the New Moon will fall in Taurus in your fifth house of creativity, children, and good fortune, placing an emphasis on these generally positive themes in the lunar cycle ahead. You will have tons of energy throughout the month for expressing your creative and artistic self.

Between May 5th and May 6th, Mars in Gemini in your sixth house of work and service will oppose Jupiter in Sagittarius in your twelfth house of dissolution and surrender, and then on May 7th and 8th, Mars’ ruler, Mercury, will conjoin Uranus in Taurus in your fifth house of creativity. This sequence points to a more intense mental and intellectual energy, culminating in a creative breakthrough, an epiphany, or a revolutionary new idea or learning experience. You should also be careful of mental or communicative bravado or machismo, risk taking, or some element of aggression that becomes enflamed around this time. There is a fine line between the intellectual brilliance of this transit and a tendency toward recklessness.

Between May 10th and the 15th, the Sun in Taurus will make trines to Saturn, the South Node, and Pluto in Capricorn in your first house, and on May 14th the Moon in Virgo in your ninth house of the higher mind will briefly join the mix, creating a grand earth trine. This should be a highly productive period, motivated by the desire to make positive and practical changes based on both the unique creative insights you are receiving right now, as well as a more complete philosophical change you have been undergoing since Saturn first entered Capricorn at the very end of 2017.

On May 18th, the Full Moon in Scorpio will land in your eleventh house of friends, allies, and groups, while Venus will also conjoin Uranus in Taurus in your fifth house of creativity. While the Moon cycle began with an emphasis on the house of creativity, happiness, and good fortune, and while Venus’ conjunction to Uranus signals more of the same creative revolution taking place in your life right now, the Full Moon in the sign of its fall, in the house of friends and allies, suggests that the changes you are trying to make might require a deeper level of death and rebirth in relation to your friends, social circles, or among colleagues. It’s almost a guarantee that when we make significant personal changes in our lives, that some people around us will resist the changes, or that obstacles will pop up. What matters most is that you believe in the creative changes you are trying to make right now, regardless of what others might think or say about it!

With the ruler of the Full Moon, Mars in Cancer, in your seventh house of relationships squaring Chiron, the Wounded Healer, in Aries in your fourth house On May 22nd to the 24th, it’s also safe to say that the changes you are trying to make will also bring you back to where everything started this month, to your home life or your intimate relationships and the needs or demands being placed on you from others.

Finally, from May 29th to May 30th, Mercury in Gemini in your sixth house of work and service will square Neptune in Pisces in your third house while also opposing Jupiter in Sagittarius in your twelfth house. Once again, it’s clear that the changes you are trying to make are inherently about a totally different philosophical or spiritual approach to life that you are trying to implement, likely in response to recognizing that things simply cannot go on as they have been any longer. The month closes out by offering you an opportunity for a philosophical compromise or synthesis, an opening of deeper empathy and compassion in your everyday environment, and an intuitive level of guidance that you can follow in order to continue making the changes you need to make in the most enlightened way possible.

You are seeking success this month, Aquarius, but that exploration is taking place largely on the inside. You are engaged in a monumental struggle to better comprehend your own depths, including unconscious process, internal wounding, and the requisite inner work needed to make progress in this subtle arena, where it serves you to “close your eyes to see.” Your self-expression is returning this month with a roar, with loads of energy for future plans that further your own evolutionary development. This is really the “only game in town,” as noted astrologer Alan Oken is fond of reminding us. Home and family concerns weigh into this, as you come closer to settling questions of family of origin, and as you better understand the dynamics of your personal interactions. In the Full Moon weekend of May 18th, heart space and familial issues come to the fore. Through it all you are finding permission within yourself to articulate your most profound truth and, what is more, to act upon it.


The following was written by this month's guest columnist Adam Elenbaas of The Nightlight Astrology School



From May 1st to May 3rd, Mercury in Aries in your third house of the mind and communication will make a sextile and mutual reception with Mars in Gemini in your fifth house of creativity and good fortune. Mercury will also square your ruling planet, Saturn, along with the South Node and, eventually, as it conjuncts Eris, square Pluto in Capricorn in your twelfth house of dissolution and surrender. Mars in Gemini will then oppose Jupiter in Sagittarius between May 5th and 6th. Right now there is a lot of creative mental energy in your immediate environment that can be easily harnessed into order to create and implement strategies for personal success. However, with Mercury’s square to Saturn in the twelfth house, the underlying viability of the entire project, or your entire life direction right now, on some level, may be in question. Make sure that you are taking a lot of time to think through everything that you’re doing on a much deeper level before implementing things too quickly or taking dramatic actions or big risks. You may also find that certain philosophical or ideological tensions are quite strong right now within your relationships, or that you are receiving some pushback from others about the choices you are making. Pay attention to what other people are saying because with your ruling planet, along with Pluto, having recently turned retrograde in the twelfth house, it would be all too easy to move through this time somewhat unconsciously.

On May 4th, the New Moon in Taurus will land in your fourth house of home and family, highlighting the importance of the domestic sphere of life in the lunar cycle to come. This theme includes also deep feelings that are normally distant from your analytical mind, but it might do you good to take a dive into your deeper emotional basis.

Then, on May 7th and 8th, intelligent Mercury will conjoin erratic and revolutionary Uranus in your fourth house, bringing a time of inventive if not somewhat destabilizing energy into your home life. Even though this transit is brief, your life will be changing at the roots now for many years to come as Uranus makes its way through your fourth house and shifts the entire foundation of your life for the next seven years.

Between May 6th and May 10th, Venus in Aries in your third house of communication and the mind will also move through squares to Saturn, the South Node, and Pluto in Capricorn in your twelfth house of dissolution. Venus in Aries will also conjunct Eris and make a trine to Jupiter in Sagittarius in your eleventh house of friends and allies. This transit will ask you to define your social commitments in a more thoughtful manner, or it may place pressure on you to conform to different social standards that may not be entirely healthy. Once more, it’s very important that you reflect very deeply on what is and isn’t true to your own nature. With Venus making a trine to Jupiter, it may be difficult to locate your truth amid an aura of bigness, social competition or glamour.

Between May 10th and May 15th, the Sun in Taurus in your fourth house of home and property will be making trines to Saturn, the South Node of the Moon, and Pluto in Capricorn in your twelfth house of dissolution, self-undoing, and surrender. On May 14th, the Moon in Virgo in your eighth house of death and rebirth will get in on the action, creating a temporary grand earth trine. This should be a highly productive, results-driven period for you, focused on significant work at home, or regarding family members or even property or land. However, for as productive as this period is likely to be, you are still working through a deeper level of unconscious or karmic material related to your roots right now, which may not be entirely easy.

On May 18th, the Full Moon in Scorpio will fall in your career house, while relational Venus in Taurus will conjoin revolutionary Uranus in your fourth house of home and family. Don’t be surprised if the transformations taking place on the home front intensifies while adding a more intensely charged dynamic related to work or professional matters at the same time.

With the ruler of the Full Moon, Mars, in the sign of Cancer in your sixth house of work, sickness, and service, squaring Chiron, the Wounded Healer, in Aries in your third house, it’s likely that some of the intensity and drama around home and family this month will involve a closer look at communication patterns, as well as patterns of mental or emotional health.

Finally, from May 29th to May 30th, Mercury in Gemini in your fifth house of creativity will square Neptune in Pisces in your second house of money and resources, while also opposing Jupiter in Sagittarius in your eleventh house of friends and allies. The month closes by presenting you with new resources, allies, and opportunities, perhaps especially related to business or finances. This could work out well for you, perhaps giving you some much needed financial, educational, or even emotional support. However, with Neptune in the mix and your ruling planet in the twelfth house for another year, you will want to remain reflective, detached, and as objective as possible when making big financial or professional decisions, especially (this month) as they relate to your home or domestic situation.

The following was written by this month's guest columnist Adam Elenbaas of The Nightlight Astrology School



Between May 1st and May 3rd, Mercury in Aries in your second house of money and resources will move into a sextile with Mars in Gemini in your fourth house of home and family, creating a mutual reception. Mercury will also make a square to Saturn in Capricorn in your eleventh house of friends and allies, while also conjuncting Eris and making a trine to Jupiter in Sagittarius in your tenth house of career. Mars in Gemini will then oppose Jupiter in Sagittarius between May 5th and 6th. This is a loaded sequence to start the month with. You are likely looking at finances and work-related opportunities or decisions in relation to multiple challenges or needs related to home and family. You may have some tough choices to make about your future right now with Saturn, the South Node and Pluto involved so heavily in the process. Define your principle values, and act from them, rather than waffling, making a gross compromise, or trying to do too much at once.

On May 4th, the New Moon in Taurus will land in your third, emphasizing the importance of communication, learning, siblings, short travel, and your intellectual life in the cycle to come. You are on a rather huge learning curve this month, with attention to your understanding of higher mind still to come, extending to your worldview.

Between May 7th and 8th, intelligent and communicative Mercury will conjoin revolutionary Uranus in Taurus in your third house, bringing a moment of mental breakthrough, inventiveness, rebellion, or unexpected disruption. You are likely to experience a shift in consciousness this month that will have a direct bearing on your perceptions of yourself and others, or your immediate environment. Watch for the seeds of that change to spring forth quickly after the New Moon when Mercury hits this conjunction to eclectic Uranus.

Between May 6th and May 10th, Venus in Aries in your second house of money and resources will square Saturn, the South Node, and Pluto in Capricorn in your eleventh house of friends and allies, while also conjuncting Eris and trining Jupiter in Sagittarius in your tenth house of career. During this period, you are likely to encounter some challenging events related to work as well as your friends or colleagues. However, with Venus’ trine to Jupiter, positive support and growth opportunities may simultaneously present themselves. A deeper commitment of some kind may be required in order to receive these benefits, or you might have to make some critical decisions and choose to let go of relationships that aren’t serving you any longer.

Between May 10th and the 15th, the Sun in Taurus in your third house of communication and the mind will create trines with Saturn, the South Node, and Pluto in Capricorn in your eleventh house of friends and allies, while also temporarily creating a grand earth trine with the Moon in the seventh house of relationships on May 14th. This should be a highly productive period focused on creating agreements, contracts, or mutually beneficial relationships with others. However, with Saturn and Pluto both having recently turned retrograde, you may also be trying to consolidate or restructure different formal relationships for the sake of being more productive or successful in the future, perhaps avoiding old patterns of dysfunction.

On May 18th, the Full Moon in Scorpio will fall in your ninth house of spirituality and higher beliefs, while Venus conjoins Uranus in the third house of communication and the mind. Here, the question of what higher principles, teachers, or guidance you are following will come into direct tension with the desire to create your own reality, or to break free from higher guidance in order to seek your own path or personal authority. This may also manifest in terms of conflicting beliefs or ideals in your relationships.

On May 22nd to the 24th, Mars in Cancer in your fifth house of creativity and good fortune will then square Chiron, the Wounded Healer, in Aries in your second house of money and finances, bringing a confrontational moment related to money, time, and energy. However, on a deeper level, the question might be, “Am I using my resources creatively' Am I using my resources in a way that brings me joy'” Or, on the other hand, “Am I seeking forms of pleasure that are wasteful or harmful'”

Finally, from May 29th to May 30th, Mercury in Gemini in your fourth house of home and family will square Neptune in your home sign of Pisces while also opposing Jupiter in Sagittarius in your tenth house of career. This transit also focuses on a philosophical opposition or dichotomy that is present right now for you at work versus in the home, or in private. The synthesis can only be found in going inward and more clearly defining your own boundAries, ideals, and dreams.
