Monthly Forecast For May

May comes under the sign Taurus, the Bull. Taureans are steadfast, loyal, nurturing, and creative. Often, they are wonderful cooks, and can have an affinity for plants, animals, and the Earth. May starts out with Beltane, the midpoint between the Spring Equinox and Summer Solstice. May 2nd is lovely, with the Moon in Virgo trining,the Sun, Mercury, and Uranus, all in Taurus, bringing good communication and innovative ideas. 5/3 is a good day, by the afternoon. In the morning, the Moon opposes Neptune, making our feelings a little fuzzy. It inclines one to fantasy and wishful thinking, or, worse, denial. By the afternoon, that wears off, and then we have two beautiful trines, from the Moon in Virgo to both Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn. This is a wonderful opportunity to step into optimism, faith, and alchemy. Seize this moment.

5/4 is very good, with the Moon in Libra forming a Trine to Saturn in Aquarius. This is very stabilizing. Add in the Sun in Taurus conjunct to Mercury, where focus and communication is enhanced, we have a very strong day. May 5th, Cinco De Mayo, is complicated. Let’s break it down. First, we have the Moon forming three Inconjunct, or Quincunx aspects. A Quincunx is where the two planets are 150 degrees apart. This is an aspect of frustration, because the planets involved in it are energetically disconnected from each other. In this case, the Sun, Mercury, and Neptune. We may feel temporarily stuck or frustrated by either the Race Minds stubbornness, or the denial we’re seeing. Or, it may help us to look at areas within ourselves that need to be cleared. The Moon then trines Mars and Venus, forming a Grand Trine in the Air signs, Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius. This is so beautiful. It brings grace, clarity, and movement forward.

How do I want to describe the Full Moon on 5/7? Well, it’s intense, that’s for sure. The Moon in Scorpio is always intense. Trust me on this. This Full Moon brings the opportunity to raise our vibration, and power through obstacles. It’s fierce, and we could all use a little bit of that right now. It’s a no bullshit, take no prisoners Full Moon. It’s pretty cool. Set your intention to manifest your dreams.

5/10 is Mother’s Day. It’s an excellent day to honor the people in your life, yourself included, who truly know how to nurture. Who embody the qualities of compassion, empathy, and courage. I say courage, because it definitely takes courage to be an Empath. Mothering the planet is not for wimps.

Saturn turns retrograde on the 11th, Venus turns retrograde on the 13th, and Jupiter turns retrograde on the 14th. Wow. This is a good time to review how we deal with fear and loss, ( Saturn), our definition of love, including self-love, ( Venus), and how we overextend, or over give.( Jupiter).

5/16 and 5/17 are both very good. The Moon in spiritual Pisces makes several wonderful aspects.

The Sun enters Gemini on 5/20. The Gemini New Moon is on 5/22, with both planets trine to Saturn in Aquarius. This is strong and stabilizing. Memorial Day on 5/25 has the Moon in Cancer trine to Mars in Pisces. This is a day to listen to your intuition about what the word “ family” means to you, and to celebrate whatever that is.

With all that is going on in the world right now, the changes, the transitions, the transformations, may this month comfort you, nurture you, and may your Soul’s work deliver you to your true destination. Blessings, Reverend Judith Star-Medicine

The Monthly Forecast For April

As the Sun has moved into Aries, a Fire sign, it heralds new beginnings, zeal, and enthusiasm for life, which is sorely needed now. We have some very powerful aspects this month, where we will see a shift in the consciousness of the Race Mind.

Don’t be discouraged by the stops and starts of forward progress at the beginning of the month. Mars makes a conjunction to Saturn on 3/31, which will be felt until the end of the week. Saturn slows everything down, so the feeling of frustration and anger as we watch the inept and dangerous response to the Covid-19 pandemic will continue for a bit. Thursday, 4/2 has a number of what appear on the surface to be challenging aspects, ( the Moon opposes Jupiter, Pluto, Saturn, and Mars), which, if we look a little deeper, set us up for a positive shift. Here’s why I think that. The Moon represents the emotions and the subconscious mind. With the opposition to Jupiter, people are exaggerating, and making promises that they cannot deliver on. Jupiter also rules the law. So, a belief that someone is above the law, or is a law unto themselves. Now, add Pluto into the mix. The Moon in opposition to Pluto means that people have had enough. This is a turning point for many. This is an aspect of walking away from abuse, at any cost. We are going to see a lot of furious people who are watching the results of a malignant narcissist destroying the country on every level, health, the economy, everything. It’s important because it’s triggering anyone who was ever impacted by a narcissist. It will give people an opportunity to truly heal on the deepest levels, understanding the scope of this pathology as it plays out daily before your eyes. Then, we add Saturn into the mix. Same day. Ugh. This opens up Root Chakra fears. All of them. A feeling of aloneness, or powerlessness. Hopelessness. Don’t give in to it, it’s just one day, and how the planets are aligning. And finally, the opposition from the Moon to Mars. Mars, in this scenario, is about the anger that comes out of fear. Anger only exists where fear lived first. So expect people to be fearful, frustrated, angry, and ready to do whatever it takes to move forward. To break free. Ultimately, that’s a very good thing. I think 4/2 sets things up for the aspects of 4/4.

On Saturday 4/4 we’re going to have a conjunction of Jupiter and Pluto, which will happen three times this year. This is a game changer. It’s an explosion of power, the power of the collective consciousness of humanity, restoring honor, integrity, sacred law, including people taking their power back from a corrupt administration, and personally, in their own lives. This is a demonstration of Divine Justice. There will be a reckoning, and it begins now. This conjunction occurs once every 13 years. It will happen for the third time, in November. And we know what happens in November.

4/6 is wonderful, with several positive aspects. It’s productive and hopeful. Push forward on any projects now. The Full Moon on 4/7, from Libra to Aries, is a little tricky to navigate, given a square that day from Mars to Uranus. Uranus is always unpredictable, with sudden, unexpected changes. With Mars, there’s some volatility, so try to find your center, your point of stillness, and do not engage with people who are not high vibe. It’s not worth it.

April 14th and 15th appear to me to be about a political power struggle, with a Sun/Pluto square on Tuesday, followed by a Sun/Jupiter square on Wednesday. In your personal life, avoid trying to force yourself to do things that you don’t want to do, and that goes for people you are in relationships with. Pluto rules coercion and bullying. Given what we’re seeing on the national stage right now, many people have had all they can take of that. Remember that spirit is always working with us, when we remember our own divinity. Don’t push yourself. Rather, try to go with the flow, wherever possible.

Sunday, 4/19, brings a little respite, as the Sun moves into gentle, grounding, and nurturing Taurus. The Moon in Pisces makes two sextiles at the same time, to both Jupiter and Pluto, very beneficial.

The New Moon on 4/22 in Taurus brings fixity of purpose, steadfastness, tenacity, and strength. Try to tune out the fears being generated by the Race Mind ( the collective consciousness of humanity) at this time. It’s not helpful to yourself or anyone else to succumb to that. Stay connected to your spirituality, in whatever form that takes.

4/24 is very good, with aspects that enhance faith, optimism, creativity, and manifesting. The 29th and 30th are all about letting go of people, places, and things that no longer grow our souls.

in summation, April is a very intense month, on both a personal and global level. I believe there is a battle going on, between the darkness and the light. Humanity has to decide where it  stands, for love, compassion for others, kindness, and respect for all living things, including the planet. Or, fear, denial, greed, and entitlement. We are living through a pandemic, yes. I believe that it has been born out of a pandemic of narcissism that has been building for over a decade. People have become almost numb to it, traumatized by it, because it’s been so pervasive. The terrible experience of this virus has within it, the possibility of reminding us of the inherent goodness and compassion of people all over the world, restoring things like community, an ability to work together for the common good. It is a Phoenix moment for all of us. As we all push back against fear, we grow stronger. As we join together, helping each other to overcome pain and loss, we grow in love, light, and a shared commitment to make the world a safer place. This is a time of change. During it, I pray that you, and all of your loved ones be safe. I send my prayers out for all. Blessed be, Reverend Judith Star-Medicine

 

 

 

 

 

Monthly Forecast For March

March looks to be a powerful and eventful month. The Sun is still in Pisces until the 19th, when we have the Equinox, where it moves into Aries, but more about that later. Pisces is ruled by Neptune, the higher octave of Venus. Where Venus is the planet of human love, Neptune is the planet of Divine love. This may help to explain the reputation Pisces has for being “ dreamy, scattered, airy, ungrounded “, none of which are true. Pisces is the twelfth sign of the zodiac, representing completion, compassion, kindness, empathy, and service. This month gives humanity an opportunity to access some of these qualities.

The Moon in Gemini on 3/2 forms a brief but challenging square to both the Sun and Neptune in Pisces. This is an aspect of denial, avoidance, illusion, or confusion. Trust your instincts, and look at the past behaviors that people have shown you. I’m expecting the spin doctor in chief to continue to lie to the country about the Corona virus, along with everything else.

3/5 is powerful, with the Moon in Cancer making 5 different aspects. It’s an interesting day, with the Moon ( feelings, emotions, the subconscious mind ), in opposition to 3 planets in Capricorn, Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn. We had this last month, and, again, we’re being given an opportunity to release people, places, and things that are no longer life affirming. It’s an opportunity to grow through transformation, to release old fears ( Saturn), to break the chains of old trauma ( Pluto), and to stop over-giving ( Jupiter) at the expense of ourselves. What supports this is the trines the Moon makes to both the Sun and Neptune in Pisces. This teaches us that love is always the answer: Love for self, love for the Earth, and respect and compassion for all living things. This could be a pivotal time for the Race Mind ( humanity), where a new direction is chosen. Humanity may choose to move away from fear based ideologies and the narcissistic abuse so prevalent now, into something kinder and more inclusive.

3/7 has the Moon in Leo making FIVE inconjunct aspects, ( also called a Quincunx), something I don’t recall seeing in a while. An inconjunct aspect is an aspect of a 150 degree angle between two planets. An opposition is 180, a trine is 120 degrees. A Quincunx is an aspect of adjustment, of an invitation to shift perspective. Having 5 of these on one day, with no other mitigating aspects, indicates that this continues the shift we began seeing on 3/5. People who have been stuck in their old wounds and fears may struggle with the new possibilities being offered, as this group of aspects gently shakes things loose. It’s best to let them decide what they want to do. Don’t engage, this is a time of Soul choice, and a Karmic opportunity, both individually, and for humanity.

3/8 is a serious wow factor day. The Sun and Neptune are exactly conjunct in Pisces, an incredibly beautiful aspect. Reach for your highest version of yourself, connect to Spirit. The Moon enters Virgo, and trines both Venus and Uranus in Taurus, which are Conjunct. Uranus represents change, the unexpected, surprises, a new direction. Adding Venus to that brings love, affection, creativity, and joy to the mix. Set your intention for yourself, for something magical.

 

3/9 is the Full Moon, with the Moon in Virgo opposition to both the Sun and Neptune in Pisces. At the same time, the Virgo Moon trines Mars, Jupiter, and Pluto in practical Capricorn. This is actually a very positive, energizing day. Plus, that annoying retrograde Mercury is finally over. Thank goodness.

3/13 is excellent, with the Moon in Scorpio making 5 positive aspects. Scorpio is fearless, so this is a good day to swing for the fences. Manifest your dreams. 3/14 is also good.

The Spring Equinox ( Ostara ) where the Sun moves into Aries is on 3/19. 3/22 and 3/23 are both days to take seriously, with Mars forming a conjunction with Pluto in Capricorn. Let’s take a moment here. Mars is extremely assertive on its own. Combine that with the ruthlessness of Pluto, the planet that rules the subconscious mind, the underworld, manipulation, bullying, and the unknown, gives this aspect the potential to either break free from anyone or anything, or can make unstable or volatile people even more so. Try not to engage with people you don’t know well. Absolutely avoid confrontations wherever possible. This is the only time this year these two planets are conjunct. I expect world events to reflect this.

The New Moon in Aries is on 3/24. Great for new beginnings, with lovely fire energy.

Saturday, 3/28, has more of that wow factor energy happening. Eight fabulous aspects today, bringing optimism, faith, blessings, expansion, tenacity, and courage. Seriously wonderful.

May this month be all that you dream of, bringing you peace, love, and laughter. Blessings, Reverend Judith Star-Medicine
