May 2017, Aries 21 March – 20 April…

Your Birthday may be over but the party is still going on, at least you think so, anyway. As the Sun moves into your 2nd house of possessions and money your attachment to luxury and comfort becomes more apparent. Although your natural energy will be to use this time to give to others don’t forget to take some time to work on yourself. Mercury and Uranus are conjunct in your sign which shows that big changes are in store for you this month.  May 4nd Mercury stations direct and will give you the keen ability to voice your opinions in clear and precise ways that will contribute to these changes. A trine with Saturn adds flavor to the cause by giving you the resources to do your homework so you can make the best decisions. This is a time for change in status, money, career and love.  Yes, I just said “Love”. Venus is working in your Sign, Aries, and even though it’s retrograde it is beginning to slow down, getting ready for the move forward in June.  Relationships have been strained over the past few months and now it is time to put them back on track. As the love planet starts to move slower you will have the strength and compassion to also move slower and make good choices.  Harmonious friendships are a must for you especially as this month progresses and you will not tolerate anything less. Just before the Full Moon on May 10th and as Mercury makes his move forward you will need to make good on promises of investments. This an action-packed month so try and keep your cool, slow down and think before reacting.  Your Sun moves into your 3rd house on May 21st adding some mental clarity, however your quick mind may be too much for others to handle so be patient or you can become impatient as it will take a while for others to catch up.  

May 2017, Taurus 21 April – 21 May…

Happy Birthday!!  The Sun is now in your first house and it is time for you to sport that beautiful smile.  You may just want a quiet comfortable month at home but that is not what is in the cards for you this month.  Mars is in your 1st house opposite Pluto so it is action packed with a twist.  You feel confident and you certainly have every right to be, full of energy and ready to go.  Although, if you’re too confident things could get heated so being humble may be the way to go.  This placement can also add anxiety to those with less self-assurance. Take things as they come, you will gain great knowledge and support when Mercury goes direct on March 4th.  As Mercury gets closer to station it slows down and gives you the opportunity to take a breath. Take this time to make your plans so you are not blindsided and it will be a great month. Jupiter in Libra working in your 6th house of health and routine allowing you the perfect opportunity to take care of yourself.  Learning to meditate or find a good healthy routine will be easy to come by. The first half of the Month will be focused on analyzing your emotions and creating a space for you and those you care about to grow closer. As the Full Moon approaches on May 10th the focus will shift from external to internal.  You will feel this shift as the bright big Moon will be sitting directly across from you in the sign of Scorpio. Deep emotional connections are desired as this time and you may even have a desire to have a romantic getaway with your love. It is the perfect time to have a heart to heart with someone you care about deeply.  On May 21st, your Sun moves into your 2nd house of self-preservation and resources.  After all the compliments, you receive this month by now your confidence is soaring and you have the ability to take action both at work and play to make things happen.

 April 2017, Gemini 22 May – 21 June….

You have some deep routed convictions this month that are about to explode.  But first let’s start with the fact that your ruling Planet Mercury will go direct in a few short days and boy you can’t wait.  So much needs to be said and it just wasn’t happening until now. Stay calm and understand that even as Mercury starts to move in the right direction, it does need a little time to get up to speed.  Right now, the Sun is sitting in your 12th house of spirituality and endings along with Mars.  This combo may set off fireworks that do not need to be lit.  You are feeling very emotional secure and in control but the hidden Elephant in the room is Saturn and Pluto. Saturn is sitting opposite your Moon and in the deep darkness of the 8th house.  He teaches lessons and sometimes we do not like how he does it. So, proceed with caution on your fiery quest.   On top of that Mars and Neptune are squaring off causing confusion and disappointment.  As you wonderful Geminians well know I cannot tell you anything, I am just suggesting you wait for the moods to change before making any sudden moves.  The Full Moon on May 10th marks a time when things get a little easier. Even though Jupiter is retrograde it will be sitting opposite Venus both adding some kind words to help smooth things over. On May 21st, your Sun moves into your 1st house and will help to clear the cobwebs. Collaboration with peers will be easier and even beneficial for making things happen in a positive way.  By now Mercury will be in full swing and you get your swag back. Hard work will persist and a much-needed break will come as your Birthday month begins.

Even though Venus is square Saturn and is close to your Sun in the 11th house you do not have much to worry about. It may take a second to figure out but really, it’s probably about curbing your ego a bit or learning when to sit back and listen.  As the Month progresses and the Moon move into the 4th house of family and roots, your emotions may be tested a little and keeping a straight face may not be possible especially as Mercury goes direct on May 4th.  However, the trine with Saturn could help in this case. Trines are equal energy and not forced so you may be learning how to voice your emotions without hurting others at the exact time the conversation is taking place. Wait for it and be amazed.  Don’t fight what you need to say just say it from the heart. There is a strong attraction for you to speak and be heard this month and when the Full Moon shines on your face you know everything will be ok.  Your Sun will be close to a direct Venus and everyone will be looking to you as the rock that held it all together. Towards the end of the Month when your Sun moves into the 12th house and Uranus moves into site you will see how wonderful things come in unusual packages.

Your Sun in Taurus and in your 8th house will not be easy.  Your nature is to socialize and be the flirty life of the party you so love, but this month will be a little different.  The 8th house is about intimacy, darkness and reinvention.  Sometimes it is necessary to lay low and contemplate life every once in a while, and this is your time to stay quiet and contemplate.

 may 2017, Pisces 20 February – 20 March…

This Taurus Sun has us all thinking of our future. But this is very hard to do when you live in the here and now.  The placement of the Sun in your 3rd house of immediate environment challenges you to do just that, think of your future.  The 3rd house represents communications, electronics and mental energy and when asked to slow down to a crawl it can feel pretty stifling. The good news is that Mars is close by and also occupies the 3rd house putting a little fire to the embers that sends this month a blazing.  Networking, sharing ideas, and just plain getting out there is what you are charged to do this month. Mars is in Gemini and promotes a faster pace then you are use too. Be careful to not fall into a rut or you will be running in place and getting nowhere. The Full Moon on May 10th will have a big impact on what you are experiencing this month. It is full of mysticism and spirituality.  You feel things deeply and this Full Moon will add more depth and enlightenment to the equation.  A trine with Jupiter will calm the energy and provide some guidance to all the chaos allowing for a more settled approach to this energy. It may even spark psychic energy.   You may even have an emotional breakthrough that is very unexpected and out of this world. After the May 4th, and Mercury is running at full speed, you will gain momentum and all your hard work will show through.  On May 21st, your Sun moves into your 4th house (roots and foundations) providing you clarity and focus on family and home. Saturn will be in your 9th house opposite Mars at the same time that will have you experiencing an epiphany of sorts and aiding in laying the ground work for a fulfilling life style you so crave.
