Planetary Illuminations - May 2019

MAY DETAILS

During the first week of May, we are still experiencing the effects of the Saturn/Pluto alignment which could feel stressful as we let go of those past patterns.  Fortunately we have a whirlwind of Mercury transits to help facilitate the process.  Mercury (mind, communication) is in fiery Aries where it is able to process information quickly and helps to keep us from getting stuck in any stress that might come up.  However, all of that energy could make it difficult to relax so doing some kind of meditation practice to slow down the mind will be quite helpful before the New Moon on May 4th. 

The Taurus New Moon on the 4th will help to settle everything down and bring us back into our bodies.  Taurus requires stillness - it thrives on comfort, pleasure and a powerful connection to the Earth - and there is a competing influence from Mars at the New Moon which is highly energized and demands action.  If you can spend some time connecting with nature at this Taurus New Moon it will be supremely helpful.  Once we slow our thoughts down it becomes easier to see the vibrancy of the healing spirits of the Earth that are all around us. 

Mercury leaves energetic Aries for Taurus on May 6th, and between the 6th and the 21st when Mercury moves into Gemini it will be easier to focus and relax, on a mental level at least.  Mercury in Taurus tends to have fixed ideas and opinions - this is an excellent time for mental work that requires perseverance and endurance but it is not particularly creative. However, around the 7-8th of May you may find yourself blinded by flashes of insight and new awakenings that inspire and motivate you.  This is also a good day for anything requiring creativity.

There is also potential for interpersonal issues at that time as Venus, which is in Aries now and somewhat self-oriented, struggles with obligations to others just for a day or two.  Venus is active between the 7th and the 10th, bringing up any latent power conflicts but also creating openings for enhanced connection. 

The few days between the 11th and the 15th are generally happy days of favorable influence for just about anything.

Venus enters the stable sign of Taurus on the 15th.  Venus rules Taurus and is very happy there - this period (May 15th - June 8th) is excellent for anything Venusian:  wealth, beauty activities, relationships of all kinds, love and harmony.   

Mars also changes signs:  from Gemini to Cancer.  Mars is NOT particularly happy in Cancer - Mars needs to be able to be aggressive, self-oriented, and to take action where needed and Cancer demands that we nurture and care for others.  While Mars is in Cancer (between May 15th and July 1st) there could be more of a tendency towards passive aggressive behavior, but also we could see the potential for more of a focus on caring for the needy and those in trouble. 

Between May 16-18, harmonious Mercury aspects will grant the gifts of mental focus and the ability to penetrate beneath the surface towards real understanding.  This is a very good time for any difficult conversations that need to be had, as well as for writers or anyone working in the field of communication. 

The Scorpio Full Moon on the 18th has the potential to create real magic as the power of the Scorpio emotional intensity finds balance with the stability of the predominance of the Earth element at that time.  Seven planets will be in Earth signs for the Full Moon, and the Moon will harmonize with the inspiration and bliss of Neptune to help open the doors of perception and clarify what is in our hearts. 

The energy of the Full Moon will linger for a few days afterwards, and then the Sun and Mercury will both enter Gemini on the 21st.  Gemini inspires lots of activity and curiosity, and a harmonious Mars aspect on the 22nd will fire up that activity and provide plenty of energy and enthusiasm. 

The last week of the month is mostly pleasant, offering harmonious Venus aspects to help lubricate our interactions with others and our own feelings of happiness.  However, on the 29th there may be some confusion afoot - this is not a particularly good day to make a big decision. 

Overall I think you will find this to be a lovely month - depending, of course, on how the planets are interacting with your own chart.  I wish you beautiful things for the month of May!
