Astrology Transits May 2019 – Calm and Focused

“Rushing into action, you fail.
Trying to grasp things, you lose them.
Forcing a project to completion,
you ruin what was almost ripe.

Therefore the Master takes action
by letting things take their course.
He remains as calm at the end
as at the beginning.
He has nothing,
thus has nothing to lose.

What he desires is non-desire;
what he learns is to unlearn.
He simply reminds people
of who they have always been.
He cares about nothing but the Tao.
Thus he can care for all things.    ―   Lao Tzu

The month of May emphasizes the sign of Taurus and the concepts of calmness, steadiness and determination. Taurus is a fixed earth sign ruled by the planet Venus. Ruling planet Venus adds an overlay of sensuousness, beauty and value to the Taurean energy. Venus also rules money, resources, security, your values and your own feeling of self-worth.

The month begins on an easy note with Mercury in Aries sextile Mars in Gemini in mutual reception. Mutual reception means that the planets are in each other’s signs. Both planets are strengthened by this aspect. The sextile aspect brings an ease to the actions of both planets. Put your plans into action to take advantage of this fleeting, but lovely energy.

May 1-3: Mercury at 21-24 Aries Square both Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn and Trine Jupiter at 23 Degrees Sagittarius.

The dominant energy here is the challenge (square) between the desire to act or speak out “right now” (Mercury in Aries) versus the need to take precautions (Saturn) and to retain your power and control (Pluto). The trine between Mercury and Jupiter tips the scale toward speaking and acting (Mercury) optimistically (Jupiter) and letting the pieces fall where they may.

Because Saturn, Pluto and Jupiter are all moving retrograde, you may find yourself going over old matters once again. You are apt to notice this particularly around communication matters, documents and agreements that were previously made.

Matters regarding travel and education are favored so long as you keep your wits about you and don’t proceed in a haphazard manner.

May 4: New Moon at 14 Degrees Taurus.

May 6: Mercury enters Taurus.

May 4-7: Mars Opposition Jupiter at 22-24 Degrees Gemini/Sagittarius.

These two planets will express as you being busy, busy, busy, with probably a little (or a lot) of impatience. Oppositions usually show up as someone else seeming to hold you back. Realize that your expectations could be unreasonable and over-the-top (Jupiter) and that you have a shorter fuse now than normal.

Rather than becoming irate, the more positive way to use this energy is to use it to propel you towards your desires. If you use it to move forward, you may be unstoppable.

May 6-10: Venus in Aries square Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn at 20-24 Degrees Aries/Capricorn.

This could be a rather challenging time, especially around relationship and financial matters (Venus). Power issues play a big role in the current dynamics (Pluto). Watch for heightened political and diplomatic tensions.

The Venus square Saturn and Venus square Pluto aspects will be felt most strongly by those of you with planets near 15-27 degrees of the Cardinal signs (Capricorn, Aries, Cancer and Libra).

May 10-14:  Sun trine Saturn and Sun Trine Pluto from 20 to 24 degrees of Taurus to Capricorn.

Use Sun trine Saturn and Pluto to tackle those nagging jobs that you never seem to get to. You can make significant progress under these trines.

May 14: Venus in Aries sextile to Mars in Gemini at 28 degrees.

A nice easy energy with lovely romantic overtones. Plan something special with your lover or romantic partner. Romantic sparks and sparkling conversation may surprise you.

May 15: Venus Enters Taurus. Venus loves being in Taurus as it is one of the signs that she rules. Venus in Taurus until June 8th is a great time to beautify your home, especially landscaping and outdoor cleanup. It is also a prime time to take a look at your finances and to solidify your financial plans for financial security.

May 16: Mars Enters Cancer; Mercury Trines Saturn at 20 Degrees Taurus/Capricorn.

This is another “home centered” planetary connection. Family and home matters are highlighted through July 2nd when Mars enters Leo. Be careful that family gatherings don’t amp up angry feelings during Mars’ transit of Cancer.

May 17: Mercury Trine Saturn and Pluto at 21-22 Degrees Taurus/Capricorn.

The energy today is especially auspicious for getting your financial life in order. It would be beneficial for setting up a Roth IRA, 401K or other retirement investment account. Business conversations are favored.

May 18: Full Moon at 27 Degrees Scorpio/Taurus. 

The first Full Moon in Taurus each year is an extra special Full Moon known as the Wesak Full Moon. It is the holiest day of the year for many Buddhists because it is believed that Buddha was born, enlightened, and died on the Wesak Full Moon. The Wesak Full Moon combines the wisdom of Buddha with the loving and compassionate energies of Jesus Christ. Thus, it brings together the spiritual teachings of the East and West through love and wisdom.

The Wesak Moon facilitates an outpouring of spiritual energy that revitalizes us and furthers our efforts to transform and regenerate and to promote the evolution of humanity and planet earth.

At the Full Moon, Mercury trines Pluto at 23 degrees Taurus/Capricorn and Venus conjuncts Uranus at 3 degrees Taurus. Mercury trine Pluto adds a layer of deep, soul connection and Venus conjunct Uranus urges you to honor and celebrate your very special uniqueness.

Use this powerful energy to tune into your connection to “All That Is” in an open and compassionate attitude of release.

May 21: Sun conjunct Mercury at Zero Degrees Gemini.

This may be the very best day of the year to rebirth and revitalize your thinking patterns as they relate to what you manifest in your life. Ask yourself:

  • What do I really believe?
  • Are those beliefs in tune with my actions?
  • How do I want to change my belief patterns during 2019?
  • Do my thinking patterns synch with what I wish to manifest in my life?

May 26: Sun Sextile Chiron at 5 Degrees Gemini/Aries. Use this energy to work with your woundedness. Insights that flow in now may surprise you.
