The Monthly Forecast For May

We have some really wonderful planetary aspects this month. May starts out on a positive note with Mercury going direct on 5/3, with the Moon in Leo trining it. Finally! Also on 5/3, we have the Moon forming a Trine to Uranus, the planet of genius, originality, freedom, and change. This is a good day to initiate something, as Jupiter, the planet of faith and optimism, sextiles both of them. The Sun sextiles Neptune, the visionary planet, increasing intuition and compassion.

5/5 is interesting, with a Grand Trine in Earth, the Sun in Taurus, the Moon in detail oriented Virgo, trining powerful Pluto in Capricorn. This indicates things going on behind the scenes, and with the Moon opposing Neptune, people still lying trying to obscure the truth. Since the Moon moves so quickly, the lies are going to go up in a puff of smoke. Sad!

The Full Moon on 5/10 is fabulous. Mercury conjunct Uranus brings a shift in consciousness and increased awareness. New thoughts, new ideas, and new information inspires new directions. The Moon in intense and ruthless Scorpio takes no prisoners, as it sextiles Pluto, the ruler of the subconscious mind, but also the ruler of organized crime and the underworld. Look for bombshell political revelations about racketeering, corruption, and money laundering. The Moon trines Neptune, unraveling deception, and shining a light on the truth. On a personal level, this is a day of penetrating insights into the subconscious mind regarding old family of origin issues. Where were we controlled or manipulated? Blackmailed emotionally, or inhibited from being who we came to the planet to be? This Full Moon is liberating.

5/13 is very positive, with the Moon in Sagittarius conjunct to Saturn, the planet of patience, wisdom, and structure. At the same time, the Moon trines Uranus and Mercury, both planets of Mind and communication. This is a wonderful day for intention work and right thought.

The New Moon in Gemini on 5/25 is good, followed up by aspects on 5/26 that add momentum. 5/31 is fabulous, with a number of positive aspects. Expect May to be a busy, interesting month, with a lot of planetary support. Enjoy.

The Monthly Forecast for April

April vibrates to Aries, one of the fire signs of the zodiac. It represents Spring and new beginnings. This month, we have some wonderful planetary alignments, starting with 4/5, where the Aries Sun trines the Moon in Leo, a double fire event that gives thrust and momentum. Mars and Pluto are trine to each other, as well, adding fearlessness and the will to accomplish ones goals. 4/6 is also good, with the Moon in Leo forming a Grand Trine with both Saturn and Uranus, a triple header in all three Fire signs. Wow.

Mercury turns retrograde on 4/9, something none of us look forward to, but we can use to go within. Use pencil instead of pen for appointments, be extra clear in all communications. It turns direct again on 5/3.

The Full Moon on 4/11 is powerful, with both the Sun and Uranus in Aries opposing the Moon in Libra. Look for sudden and unexpected developments having to do with justice, the law, and a breakthrough of some kind, both personally and globally.

4/16, Easter Sunday, is also very powerful, with a number of aspects happening. More Fire, with the Moon in Sagittarius trining the Sun and Uranus again. Fire represents alchemy and purification, this could be a good day for a fresh perspective. The Moon conjunct to Saturn, the planet of discipline and patience, adds fixity of purpose to the zeal and enthusiasm of all of that fire.

The New Moon on 4/26 is exquisite, with the Sun and the Moon in Taurus, with the Moon sextile to Neptune late in the day, adding peace and gentleness.

Enjoy the return of Spring, the daffodils, forsythia, and crocus adding splashes of vibrant color everywhere. May April bring you the fulfillment of all of your dreams. Blessings, Judith

The Monthly Forecast For March

IMG_2507That old saying that ” March comes in like a lion, and goes out like a lamb” is certainly true this month, from an astrological point of view. March starts off with a bang on 3/1, with the Moon in fiery Aries conjunct to both Mars and Uranus. Holy smokes. The Moon, Mars, and Uranus, all in Aries. Together. Well, if you need a push, some forward momentum, here it is. Need some passion? Intensity? Fire? All here. At the same time, the Moon squares Pluto, which rules the subconscious mind. Old memories may arise. There is a temptation to break with the past, to be black and white in your thinking. Breathe. Reflect. If the inner guidance that advocates radical change ( quitting a job, getting a divorce) is real, it will still be there tomorrow. If it’s coming from an unhealed wound in the subconscious, it won’t.

3/3, the Moon moves into Taurus, an Earth sign. This is a lovely day for self-care. The Moon tribes Pluto in Capricorn, while sextiling the Sun in Pisces. This is a good day to focus on your goals and dreams.

3/5 is a little tricky to navigate. The Moon in Gemini squares the Sun/Neptune conjunction in Pisces. Neptune is the visionary planet, yes. It is the higher octave of Venus, the planet of love, charm, and romance. Neptune represents cosmic love, visions, and imagination. The shadow side of it is addiction to fantasy, mood-altering, and impractical schemes and ideas. Stay grounded.

3/7 is another intense day, with the Moon in sensitive Cancer trine to the Sun/Neptune conjunction, while also conjunct to Mercury, also in Pisces. This is lovely. Feelings become easier to communicate. Compassion is the order of the day.  With the Moon making a square to Uranus and Jupiter, watch your impulse control. Avoid making promises to people out of a desire to take care of them. A square to Jupiter inclines us to overestimate ourselves, our available time, energy, and Qi.

3/10 is fabulous. The Moon in Leo forms a Grand Trine with Saturn in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries. Wow. Fire, fire, fire. The Fire Element gives zeal and enthusiasm, passion for life. The sextile to Jupiter adds hope and faith. Yes!

The Full Moon on 3/12 is powerful, with the Sun at 22 degrees of Pisces opposing the Moon at 22 degrees of Virgo. The Moon trines Pluto, giving us a renewed will and determination to overcome obstacles.

The Sun enters Aries ( The Vernal Equinox) at 6:29 AM Eastern time on 3/20. The Equinox is a wonderful time for new beginnings. The Moon will conjunct Saturn, adding patience, wisdom, and discipline.

The New Moon on 3/27 is wonderful. The Sun and Moon are conjunct in Aries, again, Fire, passion, enthusiasm. The 29th is another fabulous day, closing out the month on a high note.

There are many opportunities available to us in March. The ultimate opportunity for each of us is transformation, freedom, and transcendence, the ultimate spiritual goal. May this time fulfill your dreams for yourself. May you be guided and blessed every step of the way on your journey. Love to all, Judith
