May 2016 Overview
May is universally a FIVE month in a NINE universal year, emphasizing the changes that are slated to occur. Clearing the decks, changing the stage, shifting people, places and situations become the dramatic events that occur during the Mercury retrograde from April 28th through May 22nd, emphasizing the Taurus sector from 14 to 24 degrees Taurus. Mercury makes the first swing through these degrees starting April 14th, which is also the day that Mercury creates a positive trine to Jupiter in Virgo. Providing the beginning to major shifts will be “in the air” and will feel that there is something else blowing in on the winds. Staying aware of the aspects help to prepare for the major changes slated for this month. Jupiter turning direct May 9th shifts the energy of May and brings in decisions to move into new directions as Sun connects with Mercury at 19 Taurus on that day as well. Many shifts and changes come into play during May as new and different information streams into the equations. Mercury turns direct on May 22nd as Sun and Mars retrograde require a balance with inner alignment of intentions, desire and purpose. Once Mercury turns direct, the line-up of aspects are set to roll out the pathway point into the directions that contain the right action choices of this time.
May 1st through May 7th
This week May 1st through May 7th brings in the FIVE energy with the shifts and changes created by Mercury retrograde. Tuesday Sun creates a positive trine with Jupiter as the earth signs of Taurus and Virgo provide a settling type of energy that helps to bring harmony and balance into situations. Sun’s sense of purpose connects with Jupiter’s desire to expand the Virgo element of right action. It is this aspect that spurs people into the actions to make changes and connect with a direction that creates the need for right thoughts and actions as the foundation of this pursuit. Friday Sun connects with Moon opening the new beginnings that are always set up for the New Moon. At 17 Taurus, this New Moon brings in important pieces to the retrograde course-correction puzzle, which shifts situations to align with the value and right action choices of this month. Later Friday evening, Moon connects with Mercury which brings in more intuition than is usually available, as these two have a similar connectivity that links up easily. Saturday accentuates the Moon’s phase of receptivity as shifting into Gemini brings in more communication that plays an important part of the process.
May 8th through May 14th
This week begins with Moon already in Gemini accentuating the communication element that has been active all weekend long. Monday morning Jupiter slows at 13 Virgo to ultimately turn direct and ready to unfold many of the new options, opportunities and possibilities. Jupiter will begin to roll out the new pathways and possibilities as the new shifts and changes emerge and accentuate the new directions pulling all toward a new theme and purpose. Jupiter in Virgo is all about right action. With the accumulations of choices and responses since the one-year of 2008, the similarity of similar choices creates a picture of philosophy and values. Jupiter will reveal the new pathways that have been carved out as a groove of options. These options become the stepping stones toward the right action choices that open up new opportunities. With Sun conjunct Mercury retrograde, decisions will be made, but not implemented until Mercury turns direct, but at 19 Taurus, these two planets define the choices and directions that will be emerging. Friday Mercury retrograde connects with Venus at 17 Taurus bringing information forward that helps to resolve issues and to bring balance to the equations. Mercury retrograde makes choices and Venus brings in resolutions and options to set things right. These options create different paths available that will open as Mercury turns direct.
May 15th through May 21st
Sunday has Moon and Jupiter connect, bringing the promise of good things to come. Moon and Jupiter in Virgo highlight the choices for right action, making them a realistic option within the day. Action and choices will enter into the week with the need to communicate to others. On Friday, Sun enters Gemini, which opens the doors for communication, information and change. The almost Full Moon rising Friday evening accentuates the Gemini/Sagittarius sectors with the need to balance communication and philosophy, which requires that actions also align with philosophy, which is why Mars is retrograde in Sagittarius. The Full Moon brings in the close proximity of Mars to this Full Moon and activates the dynamic message that is occurring. It is time that actions show the truth of the words as the line up with the words is required to bring balance to the choices for right action. The Full Moon brings in a high tide of events associated with the situations to show the gap between the words and actions or to bring in the power of the alignment with truth. The Full Moon on Saturday becomes a very powerful day with the Full Moon and Mars connecting to Moon accentuates the relevant actions that are highlighted with this time. These aspects set the pace for early Sunday morning as Sun and Mars require balance and Mercury turns direct. These aspects highlight the key messages that it is time to bring alignment to the choices for right action and the ability to attain this alignment.
May 22nd through May 28th
Early Sunday morning Sun and Mars retrograde create an opposition that needs a balance to achieve harmony. Sun shines the light onto purpose and passion while Mars accentuates actions and energy of activities. Mars has been retrograde in fiery Sagittarius as a needed backtrack to come to the beginning point of the projectile that veered into directions without the right actions to empower the qualities needed to continue with the direction. Mars in Sagittarius has to veer back into Scorpio to determine the root elements that are the key components that are naturally going to express from their seeds. If the essence isn’t there, then the direction chosen cannot be continued. This backtracking process is instrumental in making choices that create the stepping stones along a pathway with substance. Mercury turns direct early on the Sunday as well playing a similar part in the alignment process needed to achieve the corrected versions before situation can get back on track. Tuesday Venus and Mars are assessing the alignment to determine the true inner connectivity with the projectile of Mars. Friday Mars dips into Scorpio to go below the level of outer elements to truly see the inner capabilities and philosophy. Similar to looking under the table cloth to see what is really there, many aspects and elements will become visible in the process. Transparency begins to be a very telling part of this process and will continue through the end of June, while Mars in retrograde in Scorpio.
May 29th through June 4th
Sunday Moon connects with Neptune, opening up a major intuitive portal providing more information and connections that normal. The connection with spiritual Neptune brings in the importance of the spiritual blueprints to see the alignment with our Life map. The spiritual elements that play a part in this process are opening the doors to move into our rightful direction especially with the intuitive connections providing additional support and awareness. Monday Mercury creates a positive trine with Pluto in Capricorn, which brings in the desire to make a difference. Pluto’s use of power will be a major piece of information collected during the Mars retrograde journey as Pluto’s power of influence becomes an energy source that is powered by passion. The passion to make an impact in the world of others can take the form of influence to add to others or to take away from others by using control to take from others or to add to others by positive influence. Pluto’s trine with Mercury provides the information that will begin to unfold the shifts and changes that will occur as June’s SIX month spotlights the home and work environments.
June 2016 Overview
June is universally a SIX month bringing in the focus to the home and work environments. There will be important shifts within these areas to solve and fix what is there or to jump into a new environment that is more fitting to the expression that is needed. June 6th has Sun and Venus connect at 16 Gemini, which brings in the focus to harmony, balance and financial shifts to support the changes. Also on June 9th, Mercury in Taurus and Mars retrograde in Scorpio will reach the point of having gathered information that will then determine the stepping stones into the new direction because of the inner alignment with right actions. The week brings in the key elements that are integral to the changes needed to align with the true inner essence. June 29th, Mars turns direct at 23 Scorpio as the true inner assessment can begin to make the corrected projectile with stepping stones and moving into the right direction. The elements of Mars in Scorpio become a natural expression of all that is under the surface to bring into the process of transparency to roll out the true essence as the new journey begins.
