Monthly Forecast For May

Art by Josephine Wall

May is a lovely month, vibrating to Taurus, a Fixed Earth sign of the zodiac. The symbol for Taurus is the Bull, representing courage, tenacity, and fixity of purpose. The truth is, you can’t get a Taurus to do anything that they don’t want to do. Don’t waste your breath. Taurus ♉️ is ruled by Venus, the planet of love, creativity, charm, and beauty. It’s flower or essential oil is the rose or jasmine. The stones would be Rose Quartz, Angelite, Blue Chalcedony, or Mangano Calcite. Softness is the key.

This month is interesting, with 5/3 having the Moon moving into Taurus, preparing for the New Moon on 5/4. On the 3rd, the Moon conjuncts both Mercury and Uranus. Since Uranus is the higher octave of Mercury, this brings an opportunity to access the higher consciousness, the Third Eye and Crown Chakras. It’s a perfect time for intention work, especially since with the Taurus ♉️ energy, it has longevity. I would extend that across the third, fourth, and fifth. All excellent. Since Taurus represents the Earth Element, which is about what nurtures or nourishes us in Chinese Medicine, take some time to nurture your soul on this New Moon.

The 7th is intense, with aspects to Neptune and Jupiter reminding us not to overextend. 5/8 is fabulous, again, extremely high vibe. The Heart Chakra, Third Eye, and Crown Chakra are activated, bringing a higher vision, and a capacity to grow through grace. 5/9 continues that, but adds Pluto and Saturn into the mix, so be ready to release anything that does not grow your soul. It’s a time of shedding. Sometimes, that’s a good thing. People don’t grow like railroad tracks, at the same rate of speed. Free Will allows people to grow, or not grow. Avoiding codependency and enmeshment is important.

5/12 is Mother’s Day. The Moon in Virgo ♍️ is making several magical aspects. It’s a wonderful day to access the Divine Feminine energy of the universe, that Kwan Yin energy, the goddess of mercy and compassion. We are all Yin and Yang. This is a day to celebrate the Yin energy of the universe, receiving. Affirm that you are, in every moment, receiving all of the love, joy, beauty, and blessings that the universe has for you.

5/18 is the Full Moon, with the Sun 🌞 in Taurus ♉️, opposing the Moon 🌚 in Scorpio. ♏️. Excellent, excellent, excellent day. It’s a powerful manifesting day. Grab onto the energy of this one, and get ready to break through old patterns. Rock this, it’s amazing.

5/22 is very powerful, with the Moon 🌚 in Capricorn ♑️ conjunct to Pluto and Saturn again. Any change is possible.

This month is rich with astrological possibilities. It’s a month of renewal, gentle healing, being nurtured, and replenished. May it bring you all of the love and joy you deserve. Blessings, Reverend Judith Star-Medicine

Monthly Forecast For April

Aries is a Cardinal Fire sign of the zodiac often signified by the Ram. Aries people are strong-willed, enthusiastic, passionate about life, energetic, and fun to be around. The Sun is moving through Aries this month, so let’s take a look at what’s in store.

The month starts out with an exquisite day on 4/2, with the Moon in Pisces ♓️ forming three conjunctions in a row, first to Venus, then to Mercury, and lastly, to Neptune, all in Pisces. This is a gift. Neptune, at it’s highest expression, represents Divine Love. Venus represents love, charm, creativity, and happiness. Combine those two, and you have the opportunity for a truly mystical experience. Add in Mercury, the planet of communication, and the mind, you then have the opportunity to connect the heart and mind, expressing yourself from love. ( Diffusing Rose essential oil, or meditating with Rose Quartz would enhance this). Focus on receiving grace and love, while radiating out love to the world.

April 3rd and 4th are also nice, leading up to the New Moon in Aries ♈️ on 4/5. Both the Sun and Moon are at 15 degrees of Aries. This will be a very intense New Moon, due to Pluto and Saturn being squared by it, in Capricorn ♑️. This is a deeply alchemical process, accessing Root Chakra fears that need to be released. Work with the Fire Element to burn through it. Refuse to be held hostage by old trauma. Refer back to the realizations from the aspects on the second, where you tapped into the perfect love of the universe. Remember, fear is not a thing. It’s an ABSENCE of a thing. It’s an absence of faith, in oneself and in Source. It’s an absence of cosmic truth. It’s buying into a lie, or error consciousness. Use the Aries Ram energy to push through it, confronting it. Use the fire. 🔥🔥🔥. Burn, baby, burn. Become the Phoenix. Rise.

4/6 is good, with the Moon 🌙 conjunct to Uranus in Taurus ♉️. New ideas and possibilities. 4/7 is fabulous, with the Moon in Taurus making several lovely aspects.

Let’s look at 4/10. Wow. Another intense, interesting day. Here, I think we’re going to see some outright lying, spin doctoring, and damage control on the news. Don’t believe everything you see, deceit appears to be the order of the day. On a personal level, try to avoid over-extending, or over-giving, at your own expense. Lay low, if possible.

4/12 is a day of potential liberation. The Moon in Cancer ♋️ pushes up against a very frozen resistance to change, with Pluto and Saturn again, this time as an opposition instead of a square, and utilizing Water 💦 instead of Fire. Water represents faith and trust. This is an aspect of letting go. Not from a place of giving up, but rather, from a place of acceptance of what is. Of where someone stands in consciousness, and their unwillingness to change. Let go. Move forward.

Palm Sunday, 4/14, is a day of benediction. There is a Grand Trine in Fire, 🔥, with the Sun in Aries ♈️ trining the Moon in Leo ♌️, both trining Jupiter in Sagittarius ♐️. Jupiter represents optimism, faith, and Sacred Law. This is another great day for manifesting your dreams, your vision, your hopes. Work from your Heart Chakra. The Heart and Pericardium are a part of the Fire Element. Be the light of the world. Illuminate everyone around you.

The Full Moon on the 19th also opposes Uranus, the planet of unexpected changes. Expect the unexpected, and go with the flow.

The Sun enters Taurus ♉️ on the 20th, and the Moon makes a few nice aspects, so we have a breather. Easter Sunday on 4/21 is lovely.

April is going to be a busy month, with some powerful opportunities for growth and change. It will be interesting to see how the Race Mind handles that.

As we move into spring, with the return of the flowers, the leaves, with the snow up here in the mountains finally starting to melt, embrace all of the beautiful possibilities that the universe has for you. Open yourself to receive. Become the Fire, generating light and love for the world. May April bring you beauty, everywhere you look. Be well, my friends. Happy birthday, Aries ♈️ people. Light it up!  Blessings, Judith

Monthly Forecast For March

The Sun is in Pisces for much of the month. Pisces is a Water sign of the zodiac. The Water signs tend to be empathic, compassionate, and caring. (Some people say that Pisces are dreamy and unfocused, but I have never found that to be the case.) In Chinese medicine, the kidneys and the bladder are the Water element. It represents what we trust, what we have faith in. Also, the kidneys are the home of the mystical, the supernatural, and the Void.

This month begins with Mercury going retrograde on 3/5. It lasts for three weeks, going direct again on 3/28. I know, it’s appointment book hell. Not great for travel, but if you have to, check and double check your schedule. Be clear in all communications, and write things down.

There is a gorgeous New Moon on 3/6, with the Sun and Moon in Pisces, BOTH conjunct to Neptune. Wow. This is incredibly high vibe. Take advantage of the cosmic energy this generates. Meditate, set your intention to be love, to broadcast love, to receive love. It’s a vibration of grace, gratitude, and beauty. The Moon also sextiles Mars and Saturn, energy and patience. I believe this may be one of the most uplifting days of the month.

Daylight Savings Time begins on 3/10. The Moon conjuncts to Uranus in Taurus, very freeing and packing a lot of juice. Change a pattern, move forward. 3/11 is another seriously good day. We have several good aspects, but the ones I like the most are the Moon in Taurus trining Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn. Pluto is the alchemist, and Saturn is wisdom and patience. This is an aspect of high magic, anything can be accomplished with this. Connect to Source, channel it through yourself. Become the magic, and watch old obstacles fade away. Or blow them the fuck up, whichever works for you. I’m more of a blow them the fuck up type of chick, myself.

3/13 is interesting. The Moon in Gemini squares Neptune in Pisces. Neptune in a square aspect signifies denial, or naïveté. The Sun in Pisces squares Jupiter in Sagittarius at the same time, an aspect of overextending. Don’t let your compassion and generosity of spirit cause you to be taken advantage of, or to push yourself too hard. The Sun sextile to Pluto helps, here, giving penetrating insights. Trust what you’re shown.

I’m going out on a limb here, but 3/14, 3/15 and 3/16 look important, in terms of breaking news regarding ongoing investigations in our country. Some people are going to be getting some bad news. And should plan on going away for a while. I hope they like orange.

The Vernal Equinox And Full Moon is on 3/20, with the Sun entering Aries. There are several very powerful aspects that day, among them, the Moon trining Saturn, Pluto, and Mars. Yowza. It’s time to rock and roll. This is another opportunity to jumpstart your life. Body surf this planetary configuration. Focus. Wait… pounce.

On 3/22, don’t let fear stop you. Just as the Moon is leaving Libra, early in the day, it makes a square to both Pluto and Saturn. This can trigger old fears. Ignore them. The Moon shifts into Scorpio later on, making two positive aspects to Jupiter and Venus. Trust yourself and Spirit. 3/24 is also very nice.

Mercury goes direct on 3/28, making the end of the month, 3/27, 3/28, and 3/29, all predominantly positive.

This month, be especially gentle with yourself. Be patient. Be kind. Be tender hearted. Pisces may be the most compassionate signs of the zodiac. Give some of that compassion  to yourself this month. You deserve it, and it’s your birthright. Let the universe nurture you. Receive all the blessings coming your way. Sending you love, Judith
