I will once again be doing readings in Aspen, Colorado at the Aspen Saturday Market on September 16 and 30 and at the Basalt Sunday Market in Basalt, CO every Sunday through September 30, 2017.

In will continue to do in-person astrology readings in the Roaring Fork Valley and telephone and Skype readings everywhere in the world.

May 2017, Astrological Transits That We Can Enbrace and Enjoy!

May brings welcome relief from the stagnant, yet chaotic and restless, energy that we all felt in April.  Anger, impatience, tiredness and frustration are now beginning to lift to be replaced by a more optimistic, yet grounded and realistic, energy pattern.

Venus went stationary direct on April 15 and Mercury follows in her footsteps by going stationary direct on May 3.  Jupiter continues its retrograde motion until June 8.  While Saturn and Pluto will remain retrograde, the retrograde energy is not felt as strongly on a day-to-day basis.  Make no mistake, the energy of retrograde Saturn and retrograde Pluto is still felt, it just doesn’t seem as urgent and stifling.

With the faster moving planets all moving forward and Saturn and Pluto retrograde, it is an excellent time to pursue your short-term goals, while also tweaking and improving your longer-term goals. It is easier to do so now with the new, lighter energy.

The Sun sextiles Neptune on May 3 bringer a dreamy quality to the day.  Nothing seems as hard-edged and urgent.  Kick back if you can and just enjoy the day.

That dreamy energy changes on May 9 when the Sun trines Pluto.  This trine gives you superb problem solving ability.  Your ability to concentrate and apply your willpower are intensified under this aspect.  Mercury conjunct Uranus on the 10th brings original, fresh (even surprising) ideas to aid you in sorting things out.

 

The veil is lifted on May 10 when the full Moon at 20 degrees Scorpio sextiles Pluto and trines Neptune.

Moon/Pluto aspects (especially with the full Moon) can bring up intense, buried and sometimes painful emotions.  However, it is an outstanding time to do deep meditation or to probe the depths of your motivations.

Old emotional patterns uprooted now may bring helpful ideas and insights at the May 25 new Moon at 4 degrees Gemini.

 

 

Then around May 11th and 12th we have some crazy Mars see-saw energy.

Mars square Neptune.  Mars square Neptune can bring questions around your life, your life direction and a general feeling of confusion.  This is not a good time to make decisions or to blindly follow the advice of others.  This transit can totally deflate your ego, so remember that it is only temporary (lasting only a day or two at most).  If possible spend time alone rather than mingling with others.

Mars trine Jupiter.  This is traditionally a risk-taking energy.  Risks taken now are likely to turn out well.  You have the desire and courage to make your own luck.  This is an extremely helpful aspect to further your career or to promote your business.

See what I mean by crazy and see-saw energy?  It seems that the universe is telling us to seek solitude so we can deal with any negative feelings and to then move forward optimistically and energetically.  Mercury trine Saturn and Mercury conjunct Uranus during this time period is, interestingly, giving us somewhat the same message.

Saturn trine Uranus on May 18 brings change (Uranus), but because of Saturn’s influence it isn’t a “wham” kind of change.  You have some control over how the change comes about.  This is a relatively slow moving transit so it is good for longer-term changes.  Learning a new craft or skill is especially favored under this transit.

Venus opposition Jupiter and then Venus square Pluto on May 19 through the 25th.

Mars sextile Neptune on May 28 is similar to Mars square Neptune discussed above, but the energy is milder and can be somewhat helpful.  It will bring a lower energy and, possibly, the need for solitude.  It is a good time to tune into your psychic abilities and to practice any spiritual disciplines.

The month ends with Mars opposite Saturn and Mars sextile Uranus.  Mars opposite Saturn acts like this:

  • You throw accelerant on a fire (Mars)
  • You douse the fire with water (Saturn)
  • You add kindling to the fire (Mars)
  • You throw a fire blanket over the fire to put it out (Saturn)
  • Repeat . . . . . .

This one requires lots of patience and you may have to bite your tongue and suppress your anger and simmering frustration quite a bit.

Mars sextile Uranus acts like this:

  • An accident happens (Mars/Uranus)
  • “Well it probably won’t be so bad after all – this insurance company is cooperating and it wasn’t my fault.”
  • Your car breaks down.
  • The repairs aren’t as bad as you thought they would be.
  • Repeat . . . . . .

June brings Venus trine Saturn (actually quite good) and Jupiter turning stationary direct (very good).

Enjoy the forward momentum!
