Do you remember stories about dancing around the Maypole? The first of May has been celebrated for many centuries. In Astrology it is a time that marks the half way point between the spring equinox and the summer solstice (or visa versa for down under).
Understand the May Astrology 2013 with the upcoming eclipses and Uranus Pluto square and how it will effect your life. The month of May brings 2 eclipses and a major configuration in the sky with the Uranus Pluto square.
The Solar Eclipse on May 9th is in Taurus; a powerful time and reminder for us to understand what is near and dear to our hearts. The Taurus energy reveals to us what we want and need to feel secure in the world. It is a time of honoring what we have in our lives and embracing the abundance and prosperity all around you.
With the eclipse, anywhere in your life that you feel vulnerable about being secure will be brought to the surface. If you feel vulnerable in your job, fearful that it might be taken away from you, then this is a time to dive deep into your psyche and develop strength and courage and belief in yourself that you have the skills you need to get another job if yours is eliminated.
If you feel insecure and vulnerable in relationships, then this is the time to re-evaluate the love within and all the gifts and caring you can bring to another person. If you feel that it is too hard for you to give and share your love and life, then you will be awakened to opening up to developing love and acceptance towards others.
If you feel insecure around your ability to provide financial security for yourself, family or your future, then this powerful solar eclipse will point towards a path to what you need to do, know, or learn in order to have the skill needed to earn the income to not feel vulnerable.
Open your heart to your gifts and talents and allow for the messages to bring to you the ideas that you know, if you carried them through to completion, would increase the feeling of abundance and completeness in your life.
The Uranus Pluto square on May 20th is part of a long term transit that sends another round of shock waves to awaken your consciousness to what you need to feel free and what is needed to have the capability to live your life to its fullest.
On May 25th there is a Lunar Eclipse from Gemini to Sagittarius. This is a change in the eclipse pattern which has been concentrated in the Taurus Scorpio axis. Now the universe is pulling back in a reminder that in order to have the security and abundant life we want (Taurus) there is something to learn and discover and believe in (Gemini and Sag) that will allow for your life to move to the next level of manifesting and sharing your gifts and talents to the world.

Do you have your moon in Sagittarius?
Open and generous, you enjoy a wide circle of friends and acquaintances and you thrive on sociability and fellowship. You are adventurous, playful, freedom-loving, and always ready for a good time. You rarely allow obstacles or difficulties to keep you down, for no matter how bleak the past or present, you always expect a better, brighter future. In fact, you are uncomfortable with your own or other people’s problems and emotional pain. You often try to “cheer up” or offer philosophical advice to those who are hurting, but unwittingly you avoid or ignore the emotions involved. Friendship means a great deal to you, perhaps even more than love or romance. For you to be happy, your mate must be your best friend and encourage your aspirations and ideals. You also need a great deal of emotional freedom and mobility.
April opens with the alignment of planets stumbling in on the heels of the full moon from a few days before. Venus is moving away from Uranus in Aries who has been looking for an escape from boredom. Venus in Aries wants excitement in love life. This month can be filled with attempts to scale a cliff, ride the Ferris wheel and any other sorted capers that bring an adrenalin rush. Little does Venus realize that her recent escape from the center of the Sun (Venus conjunct Sun) that the path she is taking will throw her into the arms of Mars on April 7th. This new phase of Mars and Venus in Aries will dominate the theme for relationships for nearly two years. The Venus Mars conjunction is sandwiched in between the Sun on one side and Eris on the other. The Sun’s light is so strong it may obscure Venus and Mars from being seen. This means that your relationship, whether romantic or a relationship with what you love, will play second fiddle to the demands of the Sun, your work. On the other side of Venus and Mars we have Eris blocking the way. Eris represents where we have been left out of life, where we feel that everyone else gets to be ‘invited to the party’ and somehow we were left out. Perhaps you feel like an outsider looking in to all the well paying or high level positions that always seem to be given to someone else, or seeing others with loving and close family relationships knowing that yours is far from the Hallmark commercials. Anywhere you feel you have gotten the short end of the stick will become apparent with the new Venus Mars phase. The new moon on the 10th is your chance to set things right; it is time to get what you want or feel you need to be happy and independent. Courage is the key word. Have courage and be fearless in your endeavors. Let go of what might have been and start fresh. Pluto goes retrograde on the 12th. The day that Pluto is retrograde more ‘Pluto juice’ is available to center in deep meditation and connect with your subconscious and know what is holding you back from achieving your hearts desires.
Mercury moves into Aries on the 13th shifting communication to direct speech. If you have felt frustrated with others not being able to tell you what they think or feel, you will welcome this shift as one can now just blurt out what is on their mind. Venus enters Taurus on the 16th which begins a time of appreciation of fine art, food and objects. The Sun moves in Taurus on the 19th heralding a time to slow down and enjoy nature. Mars enters in Taurus on the 20th helping to be patient with those parts of life that take time to grow and build upon. The full moon lunar eclipse is on the 25th. This full moon packs a wallop of surprise if you are harboring any jealousy or secrets that you don’t want to be exposed. Open honesty is needed now, even if it means cutting off relationships that can’t handle who you really are.
Aries: (March 21- April 19) Happy Birthday Aries. With your ruling planet, Mars, in your sign for most of April, the urge to step forth and claim what you feel deep within is your birthright is strong. It is your birthday time and April is the month to start fresh. Throw out the old and make room for the new. The lunar eclipse dances between what you have and what others bring to you. New friends, lovers, or a different job can cross into your path. Pay attention to the inner voice within, the messages that you would rather ignore are the ones that will bring you the most growth.
Taurus: (April 20- May 20) The weeks leading up to your birthday are fruitful when you spend time in peaceful contemplation. When Venus, your ruling planet, moves into your sign on the 15th you will feel a subtle shift that life is beginning to move your way. The lunar eclipse on the 25th will reveal your deepest fears and desires. Do not be dismayed at the effort ahead, the road may be filled with curves yet the reward around the corner is worth the concentration necessary.
Gemini: (May 21-June 21) Laughter, joy and fun is the promise for you this month. Spend time with others that are quick to laugh and quicker to lend a helping hand or a different point of view. Sparks fly between friends who jump to conclusions or take offense at different opinions. Be the observer; you will be privy to details yet detached. Careful scrutiny of the play of words between others teaches you much about character and protecting ones reputation.
Cancer: (June 22- July 22) April begins with a heavy emphasis on work and your career. Step into your authority and stand up for what you know needs to be done. If you feel exhausted from too many responsibilities let your mind day dream and find time to spend on hobbies that bring you relaxation. As the month ends friends appear along with time to enjoy an afternoon together enjoying a mutual interest which brings comfort, pleasure and balance to life.
Leo: (July 23- August 22) April begins with five planets in fire putting plenty of fuel in your engine to roll ahead. When the drama of life pulls you towards seeing the negative remember how good life really is. You will be sharing your smile and heart with others to lift their spirits. An opportunity to get away for a day or more presents itself. Be open to new adventures that bring a shift in thinking and positive view on your life. Your happiness paves the way to new opportunity set to arrive soon.
Virgo: (August 23-September 22) April stirs deep emotions for you to explore. Be willing to go within and look at what bothers you. The answers are different than what appears to be true on the surface. Be ready to cry tears of frustration, shared agony, dread, relief, and joy. It is a time of cathartic relief. Towards the end of April you will be on a new journey whose road is steady and firm.
Libra: (September 23 – October 23). Life is beautiful. The divinity around you is apparent this month, with all of its complications, frustrations and challenges. Mars is opposite your sign ready to antagonize you like a pesky younger brother. If someone tells you ‘we have an issue’ realize it is only your issue or problem if you choose to let it be. It is not your role to make everyone happy. Honor what is right and just within. Continue to explore what you can learn or do to create a more prosperous and abundant world.
Scorpio: (October 24-November 21) This is an extremely important month for you as Mars, your ruling planet is in Aries the other sign that it rules. Effort put towards taking care of your body, mind, and spirit will pay off. You may feel the urge to recharge your routine with healthy exercise. Any activity that helps you feel better is good now. Cutting out bad habits, especially negative thinking will invigorate you. April is your month make significant changes and others will notice the results by the end of May.
Sagittarius: (November 22- December 21) The only thing between the way of the life you want and the life you have is you. Enthusiasm soars this month with that realization. No longer will you be your own worst enemy, you will see how and where you hold situations as excuses in the way of your dreams. The urge to follow your heart is so powerful that you may be running away from the moments of the day and escaping to the imagination of where you want to be. All things begin in thought, think well.
Capricorn: (December 22- January 19) Settle into the rumblings of the family dynamics this month. Perhaps there will be birthdays to remember, or other situations from family or friend that place the burden of expectation upon you. In spite of the outer world demands find a corner in your world that you can retreat to claim your space. Burn off the excess that is hanging around, whether it is emails to delete, papers to clear out or a few too many calories from your favorite foods.
Aquarius: (January 20 – February 18) Love, sparks, and sprinkles! Are you ready for a month of bantering back and forth? Your cell will light up with texts and messages galore. Being pulled into arguments will be easy if you are in the mood to test your debate skills. A better way to use this energy is to allow your mind to inspire and invent new ways of doing things. Getaway day trips to interesting destinations will dust the cobwebs of discontent away.
Pisces: (February 19 – March 20). Mercury is floating in your sign for the first two weeks of April; let your imagination run wild and dream of your ideal life. Pluto stations retrograde pressuring friendships. Some friends may be super busy and not able to spend time and others may reenter your life. The lunar eclipse exposes what you think and believe and what is true and when they are not the same. Pay attention to finances so you have an abundant cash flow that covers more than the necessities.

As I sit looking at the cold grey sky contemplating the astrology behind this full moon, the weather reminds me of years ago, when the full moon in March lit up the sky on an early spring night, yet winter somehow hung on not ready to let go the cold blanket of air covering the earth that I stood upon.
The full moon in Libra is about balance and fairness; being true to self while holding compassion and caring for others. However this years’ full moon is a wee bit more on the complicated side.
For one thing, Venus is hiding under the sun’s beams demanding attention to our core values and the Sun is next to Uranus, the rascal who likes to shake up the boring norm of life and bring in excitement.
The full moon is whispering that there is something we don’t know about, that isn’t in our present experience, that we could love and value even more than what we have now. Allow for something new and different to open up that is not expected. It will expand your life experience to new and amazing heights.
Wherever in life you feel that you know exactly what you want and exactly what you need to be happy is meant to be challenged. What brings you peace, joy and happiness in your future might prove to be something that isn’t on your radar in the present.
The finger of fate, or Yod, is configured in this full moon. That too is emphasizing to let go of expectations on how life “should” be and instead allow for strange and unexpected events to enter your life to offer you a new awareness for personal happiness and fulfillment.
Uranus, as much as it does like to stir up the normal routines, also brings enlightenment.
The sudden awakening of knowledge that shifts one out of your personal world view to see the world under a different light. It is time to move to a higher consciousness and embrace your spiritual path and purpose.
1) See life from another persons perspective. If you are troubled by an event or a person, step into their shoes (as the saying goes) and imagine looking at the situation if you had experienced everything they had in life that made them who they are.
2) Think of a situation that you want clarity on and imagine that you are far removed from the event yourself, as if you are in a space ship, looking down on earth, and seeing the big picture.
3) Be conscious of the limits of your personal world, your life, what you do, who you know, what you expect, what you think is possible, then imagine someone from another country, economic bracket, with a completely different personal world and life position looking in on your world and imagine how different or unusual your life would be for them.
4) Now imagine a different persons world whose life is much different than yours, imagine the experiences that their personal circumstances allows them to have, the people they would talk to, the things they would do, the life they would live and how different your life would be if you exchanged places.
5) Next allow for the expansion of what is possible for you to have, do, and be in your lifetime. How different would your life be if given opportunities that you never expected to be able to have?
6) Most of all; be kind to self and others; Moon in Libra is compassionate kindness.
7) Cut through the surface excuses and uncover the real motivation underneath. Why don’t you do what you say you want? The reason is different than the first one you tell yourself.
8) Understand why you respond to situations from the motivations you have recently uncovered. How could you respond different?
9) Heal through words unspoken; unseen acts of kindness and prayers are very powerful the next few days to shift any relationship to a better place.
May the full moon bring you joy, peace, and your hearts desire.

Moon in Gemini

Mar 19, 2013 2:55 PM
You avoid heavy, demanding emotional involvements and are wary of making personal commitments.
You need plenty of mental stimulation and you feel close to people with whom you can share thoughts and mental interests. Conversation is very important to you. The strong, silent type of partner is not for you.
Sun in Pisces Moon in Scorpio
(March 2 2013)
Moon in Scorpio conjunct Saturn requires delving deep into the subconscious.
Do you have your moon conjunct Saturn?
Moon Conjunct Saturn:
Serious and emotionally reserved, you were probably never an exuberant, playful child, and you rarely express
yourself in a spontaneous, childlike manner. You are cautious about letting others get close to you and sometimes
withdraw from people altogether. At times, even when you are with people, you feel lonely or isolated. Learning to
appreciate your own company and to find satisfying solitary activities is essential to your emotional well-being.
March 1st 2013
Sun trine Saturn; align your desires and goals with discipline and accomplishment is yours.
Today the Sun is trine Saturn:
The planetary energy today is realistic and practical, set goals for yourself that are modest enough for you to actually achieve. Now is the time to tackle long, difficult projects and see them through with self-discipline, concentration, and perseverance. Tap into a strong sense of responsibility and be conscientious in fulfilling your obligations.
Venus Conjunct Neptune
out of your life move on.
Mars enters Pisces, work for a cause that you believe in.
Venus enters Aquarius and seeks independence in personal relationships.
Do you have Mars in Pisces?
You are non combative, noncompetitive, and something of a pacifist. You will give something up rather than fight for it. You may seem weak-willed or ineffectual, for you do not have a strong ego drive for personal achievement and material advantage, or for winning at the expense of someone else. Being first, being best, being on top doesn’t mean much to you, and you can be quite happy in a supporting role, working for the benefit of others or for a cause that you believe in. You are gentle and impressionable and are motivated by less mundane and less tangible things than most other people. You may have difficulty formulating clear, definite goals for yourself and making your way in the world. You have many dreams, high ideals, and a strong mystical or religious impulse. You also have a creative imagination and can successfully apply yourself to art or music. You have a sensitive physique and need to maintain good regular health habits in order build strength and stamina.
Listen to your inner emotional barometer and you will have the freedom and wisdom you desire.
Moon is in Cancer today
If your Moon is in Cancer:
You respond very much to the emotional tone and atmosphere around you, and can be dominated by your fluctuating and unpredictable moods. You often appear irrational to others because you cannot always explain the reason or source of your feelings. Anyone who lives with you must accept your ups and downs and appreciate your need for times of withdrawal.
You are also very sympathetic and understand the unspoken feelings and needs of others. You take slights and rebuffs very personally and though you may forgive a transgression by a friend or loved one, you never forget it.
