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.
