Astrological monthly forecast May 2021
We are in an unprecedented fascinating cycle of unprecedented cosmic transformation, a total reset of all social, economic and political systems.
This 20-year cycle of transformation lasts until 2040.
As of next year, we will see that the new world begins to emerge.
The prospect of the unknown can be disturbing and terrifying.
As your astrologer I can show the way and clarify what is going on.
The message I bring is not always easy and I’m not sugarcoating any of it, but I want to paint an accurate astrological picture, the best I can that will help you to navigate in a new world of uncertainty.
The journey of Jupiter and Saturn through Aquarius, which symbolizes society, technology and revolution, brings profound innovative reforms to the way society is organized and governed.
These technological advancements can be both a curse and a blessing, because despite all the progress, our personal freedom and privacy is increasingly being curtailed.
What will May 2021 bring us?
May 2021 opens with Beltane, the Celtic festival that symbolizes the transition from Spring to Summer. It is the festival of the goddess Freya, the goddess of Love, Fertility and Sensuality that symbolizes the union of man and woman, which is reflected in human relationships.
We are shifting gears, because from May 5, 2021 to July 11, 2021, cosmic Messenger Mercury travels through its own sign of Gemini, followed closely by Venus from May 10, 2021.
This light-hearted and versatile Gemini energy is all about communication and link.
Where there is a will there is a way!
The Gemini symbol is a bridged bi-pod, so there are two sides of Gemini. In this time of survival, Gemini’s passive, adaptive side is overshadowed by the extroverted, responsive side.
People are getting subdued or people are shouting loud just to be heard, now that our mouths are covered. Especially now it is important to integrate both sides of Gemini by listening to each other, because this will yield a better understanding.
On May 6 and 7, 2021, the annual Aquarian Meteor Shower will fall in the constellation of Aquarius.
As many as 60 meteors per hour can fall! These “shooting stars” are dust particles from Halley’s Comet.
On May 11, 2021, the New Moon will be in Taurus! This New Moon is conjunct revolutionary Uranus. This energy is promising!
Great opportunity to set intentions for the coming month and sow these seeds in the fertile soil of May. Everything that is planted now will grow!
From May 14 to July 28, 2021, Great Benefactor Jupiter temporarily shifts to Pisces, goes retrograde from June 20, and returns to Aquarius from July 29 to December 29, 2021.
With Jupiter in Pisces, space is offered for inspiration, healing, forgiveness and spirituality.
The connection with the higher source will be restored. With Jupiter in Pisces, hope for better times returns.
Jupiter will travel permanently through Pisces from December 30, 2021 to May 10, 2022, will pass through Aries (!) from May 11, 2022 to May 16, 2023, and return retrograde to Pisces from October 29 to December 20, 2022.
The temporary transit of Jupiter in Pisces can be seen as a short interval, the cosmic power of initiatives, inspiration and hope for the future.
Jupiter in Pisces takes a load off of this divided world.
With Jupiter in the mystical waters of Pisces, awareness is growing of the importance of an intuitive, heart-centered, compassionate outlook to restore our health, economic infrastructure and disrupted lives.
Jupiter shuttling between idealistic Aquarius and compassionate Pisces will set our focus on creating a hopeful future. However, due to the limiting influence of Saturn in Aquarius this year, positive change will not happen overnight and things may well continue to feel distant for the foreseeable future. The chilly theme of “social detachment” will remain at least until March 2023 with the limitations of Saturn in Aquarius.
In fact, when retrograde Jupiter returns to Aquarius, I’m afraid we have to step back in time, back to events of 2020.
The combination of Jupiter’s three-month retrograde cycle and the three Saturn-Uranus squares gives the impression in 2021 that history is repeating itself, with all its unlearned karmic lessons.
From May 21, 2021, the Sun travels through Gemini and joins Venus and Mercury there.
This light and fast energy brings original ideas and wants to move forward!
Saturn in Aquarius initially supports those ideas, but also knows that many of those ideas will be shelved for the time being, because Saturn turns retrograde soon….
Saturn, the planet of dharma and karma, slows down everything and means postponement and delay when it turns retrograde.
Of all retrograde planets, retrograde Saturn in Aquarius from May 23 to October 10, 2021 will likely have the most impact on our lives. Saturn is karma, discipline, structures and boundaries, so it becomes a retrograde period of karmic life lessons in which we learn to overcome difficult situations and make wise decisions.
Those with Saturn retrograde in the natal chart will face conflicts with authorities, opposition from above or less self-confidence during this period. Especially Taurus, Scorpio, Aquarius and Pisces, will be facing career and personal challenges during this time.
The magnitude of the economic blow becomes painfully visible with retrograde Saturn in Aquarius, forcing the government to adopt a more social policy. This is an ideal time to review structures of society and technology. Teleworking, working from home and the Digital Workplace are becoming standard in the new society.
Keeping patience and being careful will be the big lesson of this Saturn retrograde, especially with the first Lunar Eclipse of 2021 on Wednesday, May 26, 2021.
Eclipses serve as a catalyst in our collective path to the future.
The first of the four Eclipses of 2021, the “Super Blood Moon” of May 26, 2021, is a total Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius forcing us to find the truth amid chaos and smokescreens of falsehoods and propaganda.
Both this Lunar Eclipse and the Annular Solar Eclipse in Gemini of June 10, 2021 have a strong impact on the global media atmosphere.
The next six months will reveal dramatic revelations, a sudden end and unexpected new beginnings in the world of the media.
These Gemini and Sagittarius ruled Eclipses will also cause major shifts in the way we think and communicate, as well as in how we relate to the world in general.

The cycles of the Lunar Nodes are intertwined with the cycles of the eclipses.
The influence of the karmic Moon Nodes and the Eclipses on the Gemini/Sagittarius axis show a true revolution in the field of words, such as improved e-books and new teaching methods where a book can be read with images and sound and a global transformation in mobility, long-distance travel, media and communication.
With the North Node in Gemini, our greater social motivation and collective desire for innovation, growth, exchange of information and rapid communication changes.
On a more esoteric level, in this world of Corona, we will be asked to explore energetic “viruses” that we pass on to each other through word and gesture.
It’s about hate speech and the dissemination of which, what messages of fear do we pass on? How can we defend ourselves against fear-based news, untruth and misinformation?
Not a single newsflash, fake news, media manipulation or propaganda can obscure life’s essential truths.
A society of social distancing, alienation and exclusion simply cannot exist.
Only a just and respectful multicultural society of tolerance and mutual respect and recognition for each and everyone offers perspective, enrichment and future.
With Saturn in Aquarius we seek for a common denominator and that is a search for truth.
Deception reigns supreme, but the truth will set you free and that is why like-minded people come together to experience the truth within a crazy world of propaganda and imposed rules.
With Saturn in Aquarius, followed by Pluto’s long journey into Aquarius in early 2024 to 2044, more and more small-scale communities will emerge, groups and social networks are being formed that are self-sufficient, such as through barter and own energy-supply.
A parallel, more humane society within a cold and controlled world.
Almost immediately after this total Lunar Eclipse, Mercury turns retrograde for the second time this year. This time in its own sign of Gemini from May 29 to June 21, 2021.
All three Mercury retrograde periods of 2021 are in the Air element, in Aquarius, Gemini and Libra. The first was Mercury in Aquarius on January 30, 2021 and the third this year in Libra on September 27, 2021.
With Mercury in the social and mentally focused Air Signs, we face mental confusion in communication and thinking, but it also gives us the opportunity to be more thoughtful and sincere within both personal partnerships and social frameworks.
Mercury will remain retrograde until June 21, 2021, the time of the Summer Solstice.
Until the end of June 2021, we must be extremely careful about making commitments and promises, especially those that cannot be kept.
During this period of Mercury retrograde in Gemini, lost friends and loves could return to our lives, but above all it is about rest, recovery, setting boundaries, relaxation, renewal and research.
oNext month, June 10, 2021 the Solar Eclipse in Gemini will follow, so both May and June 2021 are all about versatile and changeable Gemini. A new form, a new routine is being sought.
This new form of life requires social adjustments and sacrifices to pave the way to the future.
In summary, May 2021 is a troubled month of dualistic energies.
We want so much to turn the clock forward, but it seems as if the cosmic clock is running backwards instead of forward.
Anyway, during Saturn in retrograde, we reflect on how it all began, the way is has become, the way we were and the way we are now.
Live in the moment, don’t plan too much ahead, let go of all negative energies of anger, frustration and powerlessness, be flexible and fight for your own highest manifestation.
When you get stuck in anger and negative thoughts, fear grabs you by the throat.
Fear has a low vibration and blocks the flow of life.
Don’t give away your power. Stay positive, but be realistic.
After all, not everything works out the way you’ve planned.
Wishing you all a quiet month of May
