We are still experiencing last month’s full moon eclipse that hit directly on the Pluto/Uranus square. We have seen major earthquakes around the world and the riots in Baltimore. These are typical Pluto/Uranus events.
This month we have Mercury turning retrograde in Gemini on May 18 until Jun 11.
There are 12 aspects this month affecting Geminis with birthdays anywhere between May 22 and June 4. A lot of changes are in store for you. And also for those of you with the ascendant at 1 to 13 degrees of Gemini
Dates to Watch:
May 2 – Full Moon at 11 Taurus/Scorpio at11:42 PM. This full Moon squares Jupiter. Look at your chart for planets between the degrees of 12 – 14 in fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius). What are you holding onto that you should be letting go of? Is it a relationship? A job?
Mercury Opposite Saturn at 3 Gemini/Sagittarius. Don’t take a trip unless it is for business. Watch what you put in writing.
May 4 – Sun Square Jupiter at 13 Taurus/Leo. Us a little self-control today, you are way to extravagant, are you eating too much or spending too much?
May 6 – Sun Trine Pluto at 15 Taurus/Capricorn. Look in your natal chart for the area of your chart that holds 14 to 16 degrees of Earth Signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn). This is the area of your life that needs renewal. A time to throw out the old and rebuild.
May 7 – Venus enters Cancer until June 5. If you have Venus in Cancer in your birth chart, this will be a lovely time for you, bringing gifts, luxury items and harmony. For the rest of us, Venus in Cancer makes us want to snuggle up to our family members and stay home with the remote.
May 9 – Mercury square Neptune at 9 Gemini/Pisces. A day of miscommunication and confusion. Especially if you have personal planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus or Mars) or the ascendant at 8 to 10 degrees of Gemini, Pisces, Virgo or Sagittarius.
May 11 – Mars enters Gemini until June 24. Mars is the ruler of Aries. So this placement will activate all the Aries out there and also Aries rising. You usually annoy everyone around you because you are always on the go and make the rest of us feel like slugs. Well, during this period you will really be obnoxious. But because Mars is in Gemini, even Gemini’s and Gemini Ascendants will finally put down the IPad and do something physical even if it is just walking from one room to another.
May 15 – Mars Opposite Saturn at 2 Gemini/Sagittarius. This is a push/pull aspect. You start in one direction, change your mind and back pedal a little and then go off in a nothing direction and stop again. This is typical of Gemini and Sagittarius anyway, so this aspect doesn’t help. If you have personal planets or the ascendant at 1 to 3 degrees of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius or Pisces, you may be running around in circles today.
May 16 – Venus Trine Neptune at 9 Cancer/Pisces. A very romantic day, especially if you have personal planets or the ascendant at 7 to 10 degrees of Cancer, Pisces or Scorpio. A good day to read or write poetry.
May 18 New Moon at 27 Taurus at 12:13 AM. Look to see where this New Moon falls in your natal chart. This is the area where you will start to make practical plans for the future.
Mercury turns retrograde at 13 Gemini until 6/11. Mercury is turning retrograde in Gemini the sign that it rules. Expect miscommunications especially in the area of life ruled by the house Gemini resides in your natal chart.
May 21 – Sun enters Gemini until June 21. This is the month for obsessive facebook activity. Do you really need all those friends?
Venus opposite Pluto at 15 Cancer/Capricorn. An intense sexual relationship could rear its ugly head today. If I were you I would cool it especially if you have personal planets or the ascendant at 13 to 16 of Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn.
May 22 - Sun Opposite Saturn at 1 degree of Gemini/ Sagittarius. You could have a heavy work load today with your boss and your family keeps harping on you so that you feel overwhelmed with responsibilities. If you have personal planets or the ascendant at 0 to 2 degrees of Gemini or Sagittarius why don’t you just stay home.
May 25 – Venus Square Uranus at 19 Cancer/Aries. You feel ornery today and decide to tell your friends just what you think of them! If you have personal planets or the ascendant at 18 to 20 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn try to chill out.
Mars Square Neptune at 9 Gemini/Pisces. We will all be running around in circles today. Not sure where we want to go or what we want to do.
May 27 – Mercury Conjunct Mars at 10 Gemini. You are mentally stimulated and want to express yourself verbally and on paper. Avoid impulsive speech and try not to offend anyone. You can move forward on your writing projects, especially if you have personal planets or the ascendant at these degrees.
May 29 – Mercury Square Neptune at 9 Gemini/Pisces. I have this aspect in my natal chart. When an aspect in the sky duplicates one in your natal chart, it is the time you can learn how to deal with the natal aspect. Or so they say! So on this one I will learn to deal with my fuzzy thinking, my need to make lists of everything I have to do and then lose the lists. Those of you with personal planets and the ascendant at 9 Gemini or Pisces will experience this confusion today and realize how I feel all the time!
May 30 – Sun Conjunct Mercury at 8 Gemini. This can lead to breakthroughs in your thinking. You are stimulated and want to take a trip. Make it a short one.
May 31 – Sun Square Neptune at 9 Gemini/Pisces. Another confusing day. Postpone all decisions for another day. You are not thinking straight.
OUTER PLANET TRANSITS:
JUPITER is in Leo until August 2015. This month Jupiter will move from 13 to 16 degrees of Leo. Jupiter is about growth and expansion especially in travel and education and also in the area of your life ruled by the house in your natal chart that holds 13 to 16 degrees of Leo.
SATURN is in Sagittarius until Dec 2018. (He will move back into Scorpio on June 16, 2015 until Sep 19, 2015.) This month Saturn is retrograde and will move from 3 to 1 degrees of Sagittarius. If you have the ascendant or any personal planets at 3 or 1 degrees of Sagittarius or Gemini in your natal chart, you may be in store for some hard lessons around the issues ruled by the planet and the house the planet is in or rules. While Saturn is in Sagittarius, Saturn is asking about your plans for the future, your religious beliefs and what meaning have you found for your life.
URANUS is in Aries until 2018. This month Uranus will move from 17to 19 degrees of Aries all month. We all feel a need to rebel; we want more freedom and want to make some radical changes in our life. I believe in “cooperating with the inevitable”. If you have Uranus in a challenging aspect to your ascendant or personal planets, go on a long vacation, move, or make some major changes in your life.
NEPTUNE (creativity, sensitivity, escapism, dreams) is in Pisces until 2026. He will stay at 9 degrees of Pisces this month. A lack of focus, a sense of drifting or an inability to see a betrayal or disappointment until it's too late can be experienced by those of you with the Sun or Personal Planets at 9 degrees of Pisces or Virgo. For the enlightened out there, Neptune can also bring artistic, musical, creative expression, increased dreams and spiritual insights. Watch for some really inspired films to come out during the time Neptune is in Pisces.
PLUTO is in Capricorn until 2023. This month Pluto is moving retrograde until September 25 and this month will stay at 15 degrees of Capricorn. Everyone is feeling the urge to purge and to find his or her truth. Profound changes will be felt especially by those with Sun, ascendant or personal planets at 15 degrees of Capricorn or Cancer.
Have a good month,
