MAY 2023 ASTROLOGY NEWSLETTER
The fires of the Beltane festival are lighting up the sky as I write this, whose early May days so dedicated to Mother Nature begins. I only wish it would remain in this ebullient flower petalled place! Except that I do feel that the cosmic shifts this month will eject some demons out and down upon us on some of these May days. We’re still in the eclipse season as will be seen under May 5th’s exceptionally long, four hour lunar event which will cover most of the our planet.
The lunar nodes, square to Pluto at the exact eclipse degree of April 20th on our USA Pluto will be examined. Pluto as the signifier of deep soul transformations, or call it life and death, birth and rebirth, will take up some headlines most definitely later month. The world is changing, a mid life crisis? No, sounds cute, but it’s more than that. The good part is the that the path is being cleared for the new world order which will oversee great discoveries in science and medicines. We already have Saturn in Shatabishak the Pisces healer, starting his research. Then Pluto in Aquarius will begin its takeover of AI. Oh did I just read that a new tech item has just been invented to read thoughts and translate them? When Jupiter, Neptune and Uranus all shift into air and fire signs, hello 2025 -2026, it’s no turning back! But we’re not there yet.
The lunar nodes, square to Pluto and Mars, and at the exact eclipse degree of April 20th, will be examined regarding those red flag days around the 25th. Read on if you dare, and believe it or not, there will are a few cheerful days tucked in there.
THOUGHTS ON THIS CYCLE:
May 1- 7th The first three days have the blossoming effect of Venus in tandem to Jupiter and I’ll add the conjoining of Sun to retro Mercury at 10 Taurus for my own use. I have my own thoughts about Mercury retrograde which I‘ve shared before. When he or it, the busy transgender communication god, stands close to a planet as it is right now and in a good match up to Saturn, I’ll take it! Moving over to Friday’s full blood moon’s long Lunar eclipse (10:34 am pdt) in Scorpio which will oppose Uranus and the Sun may hit some breaking headlines, if you’re still watching the news. A blood moon can happen in a lunar eclipse when its usual whitish turns reddish and ruddy. This lunar occurrence at 14.15 Taurus coincides with the fixed star Menkar, a bit of impediment, an endurance tester and nobody’s friend. If had to chose one adjective for this lunar event I’d use “intense”, as in whichever way it will affects your own chart.
The late degrees of Venus Gemini confused with Neptune, while Mars bumps up against Jupiter for a couple of days could intensify the eclipse effects with one exception.
Would it be possible that King Charles hired an astrologer to map out the correct dates and times for his coronation? Because, on the early afternoon of May 6th, British Summer time, that wonderful heartfelt grand water trine from the late Scorpio Moon to Mars and Neptune, is beyond princely, even heavenly. Of course we know about the new king’s soul deep intentions for the preservation of Mother earth. Crown and scepter, off you go Charlie! !
May 8 -15th The best part of Monday afternoon will be the wand from happy moon in Sagittarius to Jupiter to reduce any friction or suspicions from the previous week. Tuesday’s rather nice Capricorn moon can be kind and nurture all the earth gods and planets in your chart. Wednesday has some good vibes so onto the weekend it is! Saturday to Sunday’s Pisces moon lights a happy Mother’s day to all the nurturers and caretakers out there. Mercury will station strong and direct with Saturn for further emphasis on the goodness of the day. Live it well because we’re heading into new territory .
May 15th -22nd The second half of May has arrived in high energy where clashes between old and new may now expose themselves.The new moon of the 19th (8:51 pdt) lands in the segment of Taurus called Krittika , which as you may have guessed is the Sanskrit root of our word ‘critical’. In spite of that obvious connotation, there is some slight hope with the sextile or call it inspiration, from Neptune with a trine from Pluto all of which encourages fun times at the ball games followed by a great dinner night! Party! Hold that thought as the next piece is coming.
May 23 – 28th Well here it is, the sword and dagger of the month and I’m serious about the the squaring to the nodes. Tuesday hit of Mars to Jupiter and Pluto is not an ok set up which I’ve had my eye on for over a year. The intensity especially going onto the 25th hits the trigger to the April solar eclipse and it’s not favorable. Earthquakes, tidal waves, war and more. Renegades, shutdowns, conflagrations. Yes, I just said all that. Zelensky’s natal chart rings an alarm, as does the chart of Biden. President Joe’s moon is severely conflicted here which tells me there’s likely to be some emotional trauma, is it personal, global or both ? I realize how this sounds but I have to say it because I care about health and safety most of all. Just lay low, stay quiet and keep off the grid.
May 29 -June 1st Memorial Day Monday’s Libra moon is smiling because of Pluto over in Aquarius, and then from the Sun and Mars. The starry starry night creates a great time for friendly chats and laughs on a barbecue perfect night, while honoring those who have served. This three day weekend adds a bit of relief from the prior week. As Mars moves further into Leo, we’ll have Jupiter and Saturn aligned perfectly with the nodes to provide some assurance or is it insurance? I’ll take it, grateful for any perks ! Before you delete, check and see if your birthday cluster may be in one of the 36 listed below. .Ok, I’m signing off. Happy June soon.
DAYS OF BEST USE: 10, 14, 18, 29 after 8:30 am pdt
BIRTHDAYS OF NOTE:?The following birthdays are based on the very close degrees of the Sun, not only a large swath of 1-30 dates for which I could never be specific.
