AstroLink Overview:

First, a recap:

On April 17, Chiron entered Aries for the first time in (just over) 50 years. Yes, it is a big deal. The ingress was marked by the official release of James Comey’s book, A Higher Loyalty, Barbara Bush’s passing, and an announcement that Mike Pompeo, the head of the CIA, had met with Kim Jong Un, a historic first step toward building a relationship bridge between North Korea and the USA (and the world).   

Chiron, the healing crisis archetype, will transit Aries, the warrior archetype, through 2027. Individually and en masse, we’ll face critical new battles and hit the ground running in many new ways in the years to come. The transit will be an important one for you if you or loved ones are born in the following years: 1968 – 1977 or 1918 – 1927. My recent webinar presentation on Chiron in Aries is now available for viewing:

Face it, do it, say it; Mercury in Aries is in high gear with Pluto on May 7 (square), Mars on May 12 (square), and Uranus on May 13 (conjunction). Just after the exact contact with Uranus, Mercury begins a short two-week stint in Taurus.  The sun’s opposition to Jupiter on May 8 also puts everything on the move and the increase, (motivation is near the top of the list). We’ll uncover and resource more. The evolving situation could lead to a shift of perspective regarding worthiness or value. The transit prompts more questioning and soul searching. What’s true, what’s real, what’s best, what’s most lucrative, valuable, or worthy? Is there something more substantial going on; to tap/to harness/to gain? Is it worth the price? Use the transit to feel your way along.  Sun/Jupiter adds more dimension and depth to the process of seeing, perceiving, relating, understanding, or evaluating.

The Taurus new moon on May 15 is accompanied by both Uranus and Mars on important sign changes. Uranus leaves Aries for Taurus. The last time Uranus visited Taurus was 1934 – 1942. Yes, it is also big deal transit. The Uranus in Taurus years (2018 – 2026) will be critical regarding all survival issues – pertaining not only economics and material matters, but – and more importantly – our own mortality and the survival of life on our precious planet.

Uranus is known to shake things up, often unexpectedly, often with a jolt. It can destabilize what was previously experienced as firm, fixed, and secure. As the zeitgeist planet, Uranus revolutionizes the social, cultural, and political landscapes. As the great innovator, Uranus is set to break new ground in the areas of science, medicine, and technology. The transit invents new ways to make money, and to keep ourselves alive -i.e. the cultivation of food, manufacturing, renewable energy, cleaning up the planet, etc.

Providing Uranus with an extra kickstart for it’s ingress into Taurus, Mars treks into Aquarius on same day. Mars is usually a six-week transit through a sign, but due to an upcoming retrograde tour (end of June to end of August, the action planet will tenant Aquarius until mid November. Mid August to mid September, Mars will take a short dip back into Capricorn, covering the same ground it does this month, (from May 10 to 15).

Look to Mars to keep the action lively regarding all things Aquarius: politics, social trends, activism, weather trends, global warming issues, science & technology, independence and emancipation initiatives. Anything goes when Mars tours Aquarius. It is especially so when it is in dynamic tension to Uranus (May 16). Opportunity abounds, but an element of risk is also in the mix. Stress, the sudden and unexpected and extremes are also typical of Aquarius. (Terrorist activity is also attributed to the archetype.) Mercury and Uranus in Taurus, and Mars in Aquarius are a hot combo from May 12 to 16.  Expect an exciting, eventful, fast-track few days. With just a few more days to go before Prince Harry & Meghan Markle walk down the aisle, it’s not surprising to think there would be pre-wedding excitement and jitters for all involved.

Victoria Day weekend (Canada) launches with Venus entering Cancer on May 19 and the sun entering Gemini on May 20. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding (May 19) is sure to be the top news story of the weekend.

Memorial Day weekend launches with Venus opposes Saturn on May 25, a call it quits, take a break, or reach the goal post transit and is surpassed by the full Sagittarius full moon on May 29. Mercury leaves Taurus and treks into Gemini on the full moon. Pre the weekend, it is a well-timed wrap up. Post the weekend, the stars immediately turn their attention to a next page.
