There are 3 monster events in the month of May and several smaller activations, are you ready?! Let’s take them in order as they come.

From day one as we enter the month we have energy shifting. Mercury moves into the sign Taurus on May 1st where he will now focus our mind on our goods, making money, building things, enjoying a slowed down experience, and surrounding ourselves with the good things in life. He is speeding through 2 signs this month so he will only spend from now through the 15th in Taurus. So, when it comes to income and possessions, if you need to talk something out, pitch an idea, propose new procedures, write it up, deal with sales, sign agreements, or get out there locally to make it happen, these first 2 weeks of May will help you. If you’ve been waiting to hear about money or goods or want to meet someone new that can help this influence will aid you as well.

Mars will oppose Saturn on the 1st as well which will key in a serious matter and what you can do involving another person and that income. Look to loans, debt, partner’s money, settlements, commissions, royalties, taxes, insurance, investments, or any other outside financial resource to help you make this real, whether that means endings or commitments or structures. You may be marking some turn of events in a divorce or sexual liaison that affects your money situation or sense of value as well. know that whatever serious matter peaks today with another person it is part of the process that has you focusing on your earning potential now.

Venus enters Gemini on the 9th where she will now want love to be more flirtatious and she may vacillate between feeling one way one day and another the next. This period will help you make quicker choices or keep you swaying in mutable indecision, it may open you up to more than one love interest, bring love to you out in your local arena, smooth things out with siblings, neighbors, vehicles, and electronics, make it more important to talk about things with a lover or to propose, bring love and charm to your writing, ease agreements or sales, and bring a more joyous glow to what is said. Since Venus also rules personal income her placement in the communicative and local sign of Gemini means that making money will get a boost from neighborhood interests, writing, sales, agreements, offers, meetings, talks, siblings, transportation, short trips, and decisions made now.

Monster Event #1 is the NEW MOON SOLAR ECLIPSE on the 9th. As you can see the 9th will be felt by everyone. This is giving you a fresh start in the Taurus part of your chart. Again Taurus rules income, valuables, feeling valued, what you build, the slow enjoyment of good food, good wine, good sex, etc, and acquisitions. You have 2 very powerful weeks from today to initiate something new here. It is likely that something will be eclipsed out to make way for the new start. This may be eclipsing out some bad habit or old outdated approach to earning, you may get rid of some object to purchase a new version, or let go of how you have felt undervalued to embrace some new paradigm where you are feeling valued. Be proactive with a New Moon but in the case of Eclipses sometimes it’s good to put yourself out there and see what opens naturally for you, field the offers from others and see how you feel about your current situation.

Mercury dives into the next sign, Gemini, on the 15th and from now through the 31st he will be in his own territory where he is at his best. This is going to supercharge ideas, writing, agreements, negotiations, sales, talks, meetings, what you do locally or through short trips, connections with brothers, sisters, neighbors, your focus on vehicles or electronics, and decisions. Everything will be coming fast and most likely in twos. Two offers, two vehicles to choose between, to computer opportunities, two places you want to be out in your hood, you get the idea. It’s busy but exciting to have so much information zooming again so put it to good use.

Monster Event #2 arrives on the 20th as Uranus and Pluto form the 3rd of 7 squares that began in June of 2012 and end in March of 2015. For those of you that follow the column or my radio show you know that these 7 squares are bringing the massive changes and upheaval that we’ve been experiencing and will continue to move through until this ends. It correlates back to the rebellious, flower-power, wartime, drug-cultured 60’s when they went at it before and is having a similar affect on breaking things up and rebirthing them out there on the world stage.

In your personal life you are meant to be breaking away from some outmoded side of yourself, perhaps your identity is changing, your body, image, brand, or you are reinventing yourself. This is the Uranus side that wants freedom, originality, and ego to make a go of it. The Pluto side is about the power structures that are giants in some way in your life. It may be showing up as some major financial matter, sexual needs, reproduction, death, divorce, triangles that you are facing, or power struggles.

Today take the time to acknowledge where you are in your journey as things shift again and you make choices or react to the choices of others around you. The other square this year will be in November on the 1st and is considered the most powerful of the 7 so be brave in stepping towards your personal truth and know that we are all in the same boat, evolving together.

Mercury squares Chiron on the 21st which is bound to bring up some news or decisions that may be painful or feel vulnerable or call upon you to access your personal wound from the past in order to help another in similar circumstances. There is a magical, mystical energetic at play today regardless of the information arriving or shared. It is good to put pen to paper and write what you wish to release, write a truth that comes in strongly for you today, these notes will aid you on your journey through Chiron in Pisces. Since Chiron is working from the Karmic, hidden part of your psyche there are a myriad of topics that could come to light today, not the least of which could be something that was hidden from you that is now out in the open. Again, choose your words carefully and note what you think for future reference.

Monster event #3 arrives on the 25th with the FULL MOON LUNAR ECLIPSE in Sagittarius. Full Moon’s are our friend helping us to say good-bye, end bad situations or wrap up projects, reach our goals, celebrate achievements, and garner recognition for efforts made. Lunar Eclipse Full Moon’s are 3 times more powerful and make these peaks and endings more final. Under Sagittarius expect that legal matters will culminate, media, marketing, publishing, broadcasting, or publicity interests will climax, educational pursuits will wrap up or you will achieve some goal set here, wedding plans will peak, travel plans will wrap up or you will celebrate some high point with a person at a distance, a foreign interest or import/export, religious experiences or politics will climax in some way, and your beliefs will reach an apex. It’s likely there will be some big political or religious topic culminating in the news now as well or one of these other topics will have a high profile media campaign behind it.

Mercury speeds out of Gemini and into Cancer on the 31st so you get one day to begin to feel how your thoughts will turn to home, family, roommates, real estate, moves, renovations, and security and I will write more about how this will affect you in June. Mars changes signs today as well, moving into Gemini where he will want action out and about your neighborhood or in some nearby town, he will amp up the anger or passion in your words and news from others, spur you on to write, urge you to fight for ideas, actively pursue agreements or sales, do more with siblings, neighbors, vehicles, or electronics, and light a fire under decision making. It’s going to be a busy month, here we go!
