Horoscopes For: May 2013
Eclipses generally come in pairs twice each year helping to speed up our progress by bringing us rapid shifts in consciousness. They affect our cellular memory and trigger us to remember our soul's blueprint. We experience three eclipses in a row beginning with the Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio on April 25th; we'll have a Solar Eclipse with the New Moon in Taurus on May 9th and another Lunar Eclipse with the Full Moon in Sagittarius on May 24/25th. This six week period propels us forward through the vortex of transformation making us delve in and take action whether we feel ready to or not. We still feel stagnation and blockage with the ongoing Uranus-Pluto square. Saturn in Scorpio trines Neptune in Pisces keeping things in a watery state of feeling stuck, by not really getting better or worse. The challenges just keep coming at us so we may feel that we are just treading water and trying to keep up with the pace of this month but there is great opportunity to learn and grow. Mars in Taurus opposes Saturn in Scorpio on the 1st as Mercury enters Taurus, bringing us insight into how to communicate about what blocks us. Venus enters Gemini on the 9th right before the Solar Eclipse in Taurus later that day. Look at your natal chart to see which house contains 20° Taurus, focus your energy and intent on this area of your life as your abilities to manifest now will be strong. Watch out for stubbornness and miscommunication as the Sun conjuncts Mercury on the11th. You may question your beliefs about relationships as Venus squares Neptune on the 13th. Mercury enters his home sign of Gemini on the 15th enlivening communication. The 18th could bring challenges at work or in relationships as Mercury squares Neptune and Venus sextiles Uranus. The Sun begins its yearly sojourn in lively Gemini on the 20th. We will experience an exact square between Uranus and Pluto on that day exactly one year after the powerful total Solar Eclipse on May 20th 2012. Contemplate what you have learned and experienced during this active year as we approach the lunar eclipse in Sagittarius on the 24th. The shadows that we saw last year at that time will come to light now as Mercury conjuncts Venus and illuminates our desire for freedom from the past. Our luck and consciousness can shift as expansive Jupiter in Gemini conjuncts Mercury on the 27th and Venus on the 28th. The energy starts to change with the month's end as Mercury enters Cancer and Mars enters Gemini on the 31st.
