May 2018

The astrological predictions for May 2018

May 2018 is a revolutionary key month of change.
Astrologically and for everyone.

May 2018 opens with Beltane, the Celtic festival that symbolizes the transition from Spring to Summer.
It is the feast of the goddess Freya, the goddess of love, fertility and sensuality.

On May 7, 2018 we welcome the annual Aquarid Meteor Shower in the constellation Aquarius. There can be as many as 60 meteors per hour! The "falling stars" are dust particles that come from the comet Halley.

May 2018 is largely colored by the arrival of Uranus in Taurus from May 16, 2018.
It takes Uranus 84 years to wander through the zodiac and that means that, on its long journey, the planet of Freedom, Revolution and Independence stays for more than seven years in a specific zodiacal sign.

The years of Uranus in the fiery domain of Aries were intense.
As of March 2011, Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn formed a significant cardinal square.
This tense Square between Uranus and Pluto brought the world liberation and the Arab Spring, but also an unprecedented migration, upheaval, turmoil and terror.

From May 16, 2018 to April 26, 2026, Uranus travels through the earthly realm of Taurus.
And we are all going to notice that.

Taurus symbolizes the physical and material world, real estate, the big money.
Uranus in the earthly Taurus brings a new approach to money, possessions, art and beauty, also of the natural beauty of the earth itself.
Taurus also represents our values and beliefs, so Uranus in Taurus will affect the way we look at physical and material security and how we want to maintain it for now and the future.

The shift from Fire to Earth is intense. These are two completely different elements.
With the transit from Uranus to Taurus, the energy shifts from liberating to maintaining.
Everything that has been fought for and created in the Fire of Aries will be consolidated in the Earth of Taurus.

What will this period of Uranus in Taurus bring us?
The influence of the unpredictable Uranus in Taurus can lead to major developments in the coming seven to eight years and will affect agriculture, particularly animal welfare and natural energy sources such as a major development in wind and solar energy.
Uranus is connected with technology and Taurus focuses on the earth and the purification of the earth, so this means a major development in the world of recycling.
Uranus in Taurus has a major impact on the economy, banks, large companies, currencies, tax systems and stock markets.
Uranus in Taurus will lead to a new approach to earning, saving and investing.
Innovation and technology will play a major role, further automation and artificial intelligence to replace human labor.

Uranus in Taurus is about sustainability and quality. The earth sign Taurus is a female sign.
A third wave of the feminist movement is certainly possible.
The earthly Taurus will somewhat "muffles" the erratic nature of Uranus.
Every Taurus and everyone with the ascendant, planets or Lights on the first degrees of Taurus, Virgo, Scorpio or Aquarius are most affected by this transit.
With the arrival of Uranus in Taurus all the major planetary “boys” will be situated in the passive and feminine element of Water and Earth. Pluto, Uranus and Saturn in Earth are and Neptune and Jupiter in Water.
