EYE ON THE SKY: EARLY MAY FORECAST
MERCURY CONJUNCT SUN: May 4th at 5:41 pm EDT
The day before and after this conjunction can lead to a very buzzy and busy mind and this may lead to excessive thinking and mental disturbance and excessive nervous energy. The exact conjunction for Virgo and Gemini rising may may bring the heart of the Divine, the Sun into one’s Being and infuse it a with deep sense of centeredness and a strong connection the Divine.
MARS INTO AQUARIUS: May 4th -June 18th:
There is a sense of let-down after leaving the exact degree of exaltation on May 2nd at 28 Capricorn but the Mars journey through Capricorn has been intense with Saturn, Pluto and Jupiter there and Aquarius will at least have no aspects except from Rahu which is exact in the true node system on May 12th but having a strong influence May 8-17th. This may lead to excessive doing and ambition so slow down and do not overextend yourself if you are ruled by Mars or are Aquarius rising. Aquarius is a sign wants freedom and Mars will fight for it here so states still under lock-down may see more protests. Aquarius is co-ruled by Rahu and Saturn and it is not a happy place for Mars so expect unsettled energy if you are Aries or Scorpio rising with Scorpios having to watch domestic and home issues around repairs and Aries has the ability with an 11th house transit to fulfill one’s desires but sometimes 11th house transits can lead to struggles with health issues so stay on top of this.
MERCURY INTO TAURUS: May 8-May 24th
Mercury will move toward conjunction with Venus which is exact May 22nd. The two are friends and support business expansion and creative writing and sexual adventure. Gemini rising has to deal with a difficult 12th house transit of increased expenditures and delays but Virgo rising will get more grace and connection to spirituality and a good time to do a spiritual retreat if you can find one not under quarantine.
VENUS IN TAURUS/VIRGO NAVAMSHA: May 6-20th:
This is the weakest part of the transit and increases sexual energies and criticism of spouses . Be careful and accept your spouse as they are or you could get into a fight with Venus also channeling Mars’s energy in the constellation of Mrigashira /Orion. Venus goes retrograde May 13th -June 25th and this can lead to reevaluating your relationship or moving toward an alternative relationship/sexuality. Better to not to make any decisions until Venus goes direct again in late June. Venus is stronger and more benefic during its retrograde energy but when it gets too close to the Sun and is combust May 29-June 8th, it can create fatigue but will also increase spiritual energies.
SATURN DIRECT/RETROGRADE: MAY 10
Saturn slows down and gets more powerful May 2-18th as it goes stationary/retrograde this month into September. Retrograde Saturn is more powerful to cause more harm and only Capricorn and Aquarius rising may enjoy this extra strength. Saturn as a first class malefic can now cause more harm and it has been one of the major influences of the Covid crisis so we worry that cities reopening too soon will feel some setbacks and struggles from the Saturn retrograde movement.
JUPITER DIRECT/RETROGRADE: MAY 14th
Retrograde Jupiter is more powerful to create more grace now and benefits Sagittarius and Pisces rising most and will have a more powerful influence to soften Saturn. Retrograde Jupiter can bring out its humanitarian energies more and so more energy to help those in need will develop. Still it can make the liver more sluggish so you have to stay on top of liver health into September if that is an issue in your life. Jupiter retrogrades back into Sagittarius on June 29th and will definitely help the current world situation.
