May 2016 Astrology Newsletter

The key to abundance is meeting limited circumstances with unlimited thoughts.–Marianne Williamson


Well, the winged one has done it again.  Mercury, the planet of communication, writing, ideas, teaching and learning, officially turned retrograde right after midnight on April 29, 2016, in the sign of Taurus.  It joins the Sun and Venus in Taurus and is joined by the Moon on May 6 and 7.

Mercury green background

The theme this month with five planets now retrograde (Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto and Mercury) is to think of the prefix RE.  It’s time to take stock and redo, refurbish, re-think, re-evaluate, re-invest and revise.


Retrograde planets can be oh so frustrating but there is a hidden value in their backward motion.  The universe is giving us permission to take things a little easier, to slow down and take the time to really think things through before acting.  While it isn’t the best time to start new things, it is a superb time to plan and work through any problems that you have relegated to the “I’ll think about that later” corner of your mind.


You might even find that old issues are coming back unbidden by you.  It’s funny how that works.  Those issues re-appear as though a cosmic hand is reaching out to shake you and make you pay attention.  The issues that are especially in view during the plethora of Taurus energy are:


  • Things relating to your financial and physical security.
  • The beauty and caretaking of the earth.
  • Gardening, bird watching, flower tending and all things natural.
  • Removing toxic chemicals from your home and yard.
  • Taking a quiet walk(s) in nature.
  • Wearing the color green and being aware of its symbolism for you and the planet. Green is the color of money and also the color of our environmental concern for our beloved mother earth.


In last month’s newsletter I wrote about Mars and Pluto retrograde.  Mars is in Taurus and Pluto is in Capricorn.  They are linked to each other in an easy way (trine).  The symbolism of Mars and Pluto gives us the will to act (Mars) and the power (Pluto) to carry out our plans.  You should act on those plans after Mars goes direct on the last day of June.


Mark May 9, 2016 on Your Calendar – I am really psyched about the energy around May 9 this year.


North Node Transits 18 Degrees Pisces – the Degree of the March 8-9 eclipse

The North Node transiting the eclipse degree will bring you back to any ideas, intuitive thoughts or events that happened around the time of the March solar eclipse.  Use this transit to bring your daydreams and wishes out into the open and make them practical.  Matters around health and healing will be especially strong.  If you are a person who suffers from a health condition that has been hard to diagnose, now is the time to once again try to find the right healing modality.

This conjunction of the North Node with the eclipse point begins a six to 12 month period of rebuilding in all areas of your life that were affected by the eclipse.  You can refresh your memory on the March 9 eclipse by re-reading my March 2016 newsletter regarding that solar eclipse.


Jupiter Turns Direct

Jupiter turns direct in Virgo on May 9.  The stock market should level out a little bit (though still choppy until the middle of September 2016) and you can start to move forward in business and employment matters (somewhat cautiously since Saturn is still retrograde).  The wonderful thing about Jupiter turning direct is its effect on the psyche.  During periods of negativity nothing moves and little manifests.  Optimism returns when Jupiter goes direct.

So while you are working with the retrograde planets and revising, rethinking and re-doing add in a touch of Jupiter optimism.  The recipe is to:

  1. Make grounded, practical plans.
  2. Add in optimism and abundance consciousness.
  3. Set a time frame to implement your plan after Mars turns direct on June 23.
  4. Celebrate the pause in action that is taking you one step closer to abundance.
