While last month’s Full Awakening Moon was a Zodiacal Blue Moon, this magical month of May sees a seasonal Blue Flower Moon that marks four Full Moons in one season – in this case Spring/Autumn (depending upon which hemisphere you are in the world) – with the third Moon considered to be ‘Blue’, as it is most unusual to get Four Full Moons in a season, when there are usually three.
Get ready for a next wave. Mercury in Aries is in action over the first couple of days of May. Venus fires up in Aries in the second week. The new moon in Taurus on May 4 gains extra turbo from Mars in opposition to Jupiter (perfecting on May 5). This is a game-on, fresh wind, second wind, or next page transit. Expect more news, more trading, more trending, more money and people on the go, etc.
All retrogrades are times of adjustment. You know the `re’ words; redo, reevaluate, redesign, rethink, reflect whenever a planet retrogrades. Saturn, like all planets, retrogrades with regularity. THIS retrograde of Saturn is somewhat epic because of its cat and mouse alignment with two other powerful players; Pluto and the south node of the moon. As Saturn retrogrades it triggers the south node of `endings’ with an exact conjunction as it nears transformational Pluto. All this can truly stir up a whole lot of fear!
Ketu (the transiting lunar south node) entered Capricorn in November 2018. It met Pluto late December 2018 and will join Saturn early March 2019. This leads to a Ketu, Pluto, and Saturn conjunction, active from March to September 2019. This particular astrological event may bring tangible consequences.
Inseparable from philosophy and the meaning of life, astrology illustrates how our lives and destinies–terms that refer both to usage and destination–tend toward a finality, or self-realization unconnected to wealth, power, or fame
The Personal Planets: Mercury, Venus, Mars:
The personal planets are on the move this month. Mercury is fresh out of retrograde but continues in Pisces to April 16. There is more clearing away to do, but as of April 2 Mercury moves on a new wave-length with Neptune, this regarding the soundscapes of the collective and also of your individual soul. Consider it also as a fresh fishing expedition for that which has alluded clarity so far, for the ultimate answer, solution or opportunity
It’s that time again; Mercury is retrograde. It stations retrograde at 10:19 am on March 5th at 29˚39 Pisces. This one will be a doozy! I’ll give you a little insight about what it could mean for you as well as offer a few tips to help you gracefully move through these three weeks. When the planet of communication appears to come to a standstill and begin to move backward, it steals the celestial show. It commands attention, and in doing so, it calls us all to look at our Mercury-related stuff. How are you communicating with others? Circumstances in your life could show up to help you remedy some of these behaviors, and you won’t have a choice. You will have to face some fears, feel some doubts, and consider changing your ways.
With Mercury retrograde tips and mantras for each sign
The spring equinox coincides with a full moon at 0 degree of Libra, Venus in Aquarius turning a corner with Mars in Taurus (last quarter square aspect) while Mars is trine Pluto in Capricorn. Mercury retrograde is on productive/creative opportunity track with Saturn (crescent sextile). As I have gathered from the weather reports (at least locally) we are in for an abrupt change of season.
On April 17th 2018, at approximately 9.30am GMT Chiron moves from the ethereal and indefinite waters of Pisces, to begin a new Astrological Cycle in the Cardinal Fire sign of Aries, where it will remain until April 2027.
Taking Fifty years to complete a full cycle of the horoscope, Chiron, maverick wanderer of our solar system, has been identified since his discovery with the archetype of the wounded healer.
