May 2015

May 2015

This month there are two major aspects which merit our attention. It is the long lasting square between Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn and the square between Saturn in Sagittarius and Neptune in Pisces. Even though the square between Pluto and Uranus is no longer exact, the battle between Uranus and Pluto still challenges the collective soul to remove all barriers, restrictions and blockades to make growth, happiness and love possible. Since the eclipses in September 2014, everyone with the Sun in Aries, Cancer, Libra or planets in Aries, has had a kind of revelation or has experienced deep changes whether voluntarily to face the music. The existing square between Saturn and Neptune also leads in May 2015 to friction and resentment. Saturn and Neptune are definitely no friends of each other. This conflicting energy leads to disillusionment, loss of confidence in the money market and politics. Who speaks the truth? What is true and what is not? The battle between Saturn and Neptune may lead to a new global outbreak of a contagious disease. In May 2015, we have two retrograde planets, Mercury in Gemini and Saturn in Sagittarius. Until August 1, 2015, Saturn retrograde asks us to finish unfinished business including emotional matters. Do not be negative or bitter about what has been, but focus your attention on the future by visualizing a clear goal. Mercury turns retrograde on May 19, 2015 for the second time this year. It is advisable to finish all important administrative matters in the first half of May 2015. In May and June 2015, Uranus in Aries forms a Trine in Fire with Jupiter in Leo. Good news for all of you with planets in Leo or the Ascendant/rising sign in Leo, but the connection with Pluto in Capricorn makes sure these people will definitely have profound trans formative and positive changes. Sunday, May 1, we celebrate Beltane, the feast of the marriage between the Goddess and the God, the union of man and woman which is reflected in human relationships. It is the festival of the goddess Freya, the goddess of love, fertility and sensuality. It is the festival that symbolizes the transition from Spring to Summer. On May 2, 2015 Mercury moves from the quiet earth sign Taurus in its own sign Gemini. On Monday, May 4th, 2015 at 13º we have a Full Moon in Scorpio. The Sun in Taurus exactly opposites the Moon in Scorpio. This trans formative Full Moon in Scorpio squares Jupiter in Leo and challenges us collectively to leave negative circumstances and negative people behind. In an over the top atmosphere, on May 6, 2015 the Sun in Taurus forms a Trine with Pluto in Capricorn. This earthly aspect could lead to big results when potential positive energy is converted in a constructive way. The Sun and the Moon will be challenging Jupiter in Leo, which adds a lively and cheerful character to the first week of May 2015. In the first week of May 2015 and especially around Sunday, May 10th, 2015, the connection between Mercury and Neptune makes it hard to keep our focus. We are influenced by circumstances thinking that everything will turn out right. On Wednesday, May 13th, 2015 Mars enters the dualistic sign of Gemini. Immediately, Mars has to put up with the retrograde Saturn in opposite sign Sagittarius. Saturn inhibits the fiery Mars. The pace of life on our planet slows down because of this. On Friday, May 15th and Saturday, May 16th the young fiery Mars and the old conservative Saturn are in exact opposition. These are days of day of armed peace, call it a truce. A moment to adjust plans. The slow Neptune in Pisces joins these planetary 'revelry', so these days turn out to be rather different. We have a New Moon at 26º in Taurus on Monday, May 18th 2015. A New Moon is a time of birth, it means a new beginning. But instead of making a new start, we have to deal with opposing forces. Mercury in Gemini turns retrograde tomorrow, May 19, 2015. So instead of full speed ahead, we look back at what has been. Mercury goes retrograde in its own sign Gemini 19 May to 10 June 2015. Besides strong winds and the fact that something or someone will get overthrown, we have to deal with communication problems, deception in the media, incorrect reporting, disturbance and disillusion. It is better not to believe everything that is said and written. All is not gold that glitters. Mutual communication may cause problems. Trade, traffic and technical communication tools such as telephones, computers and the Internet may fail or get delayed. During this retrograde period of Mercury n the dualistic Gemini we are tossed between different opinions and options making choices difficult. Wait with a major purchase or decision until the retrograde period is over! The point is to keep faith and hold on to what is of real value for you. Live in the here and now, in the reality of the present. At the end of June 2015 until early July 2015 everything is back to normal, when Mercury has left its so called shadow period behind. The almost cheerful atmosphere is replaced by a more conservative and cautious one, when in the weekend of May 23 and 24th, the Sun is opposite Saturn in Sagittarius, World events will follow in rapid succession. We have no choice but to adapt ourselves and respond to situations in this rapid changing world we live in. To keep up and grow with this pace a lot of flexibility, patience and perseverance is required. We must shift our intellectual and practical limits to achieve our goals. We as humans are able to successfully transform the world from our own inner strength with good intentions and new ideas, technology and enterprise. If we consciously focus on our inner strength, unity and solidarity, we could face and change our society's most complex problems. On May 21, The Sun the sign of Taurus. On May 22, 2015 the Sun will be welcomed in Gemini. The next month will be dominated by the power of connections that have a major impact on our lives. From 20 to May 27th, 2015 Jupiter in Leo forms a quincunx with the retrograde Pluto. An annoying 150 degrees of pure frustration when a wish is hindered by invisible or visible forces that are beyond our control. The Great Benefactor Jupiter is contained by Pluto. A cosmic tap on the knuckles. Less is good! Legal and political issues are adjourned and deferred. When this aspect is over, and especially when Mercury is no longer retrograde on 19 June 2015, there will be momentum in the legal and political issues. This period is a period of preparation and adjustment to the smallest detail. Not a good time to come out with new plans. On 25 and May 26th, 2015 Mars forms a square to Neptune in Pisces. These days are gray colored by doubtfulness, lack of energy, fatigue, discouragement and a feeling of helplessness. There may be addiction, fraud and improper conduct. A feeling of impotence can turn this energy to extremism and confrontation. On May 26th, the square between Venus in Cancer and Uranus in Aries causes a day of unexpected twists, confusion and a change in the weather. On May 31th, a YOD figure appears in the heavens. A YOD is an aspect pattern formed by Mars in Gemini, Jupiter in Leo and Pluto in Capricorn. The Finger of Fate of Finger of God will be present significantly until June 4, 2015. With this energy we are motivated to make a big change in our consciousness. A quantum leap of courage, hope and confidence. We no longer want to be squeezed into a straitjacket of traditional concepts, but moving freely on a universal stage of integrated and equitable development. It is possible that governments or politicians are forced to give up additional income or personal interests for the greater good. Actually, the entire month of May 2015 a month which is dominated by Neptune. The foggy influence and deception is great. Also at the end of the month, the deception could be significant. So much is happening in the world around us and in ourselves as well. Through all these changes of letting go of the old and building a new, you may feel tired or exhausted. There are many more exciting things in the pipeline and it is good to pay attention to your health. Stay positive! We are all part of the universe. We live in a challenging times. The world is going through major radical changes and that also applies to our lives. Your body is your temple, your body is where you live in! Especially in this Neptunian month counts : Connect with Mother Earth, take good nutrition, get enough exercise, stop with everything that does not feel right for you. You will find that you are better grounded and brighter. Then you are able to make the right decisions to face the world in a conscious way. Wishing you a sparkling month of May!
