Month commencing 1st May 2013
Overview for May 2013
This month sees two major events, both concerning the moon, and both eclipses. These can often be positive and transformational, but can also sometimes upset the best laid plans.
A new moon in Taurus on May 9th creates a solar eclipse. In our 'hour of darkness' we can often receive and assimilate insights about how to change our lives, and in what ways. The focus may be on home life, family, creative work, or relationships. New truths will emerge.
Later on, a full moon on May 25th in Sagittarius sees a lunar eclipse . Deep-seated and long-term feelings must be embraced. For those thinking about extensive travelling or even living abroad, any feelings arising around this time should be carefully note, perhaps acted upon..
In the longer term, Saturn trines Neptune for the second time. Its effect on you personally will depend where both fall in your chart; but May 12th sees a renewal of this aspect which is again transformational, and tends to be present when long term, life-affecting changes are occurring on a wider level affecting, social welfare and inter-relations between societies and cultures.
It remains in place until August 18th this year. the lives of many will be affected; not necessarily for good or bad, but, certainly, in a permanent way. It happened before in late September - late October last year, so anything which began then is likely to be concluded during this period.
Outer planet Uranus squares with the potential to cause basic, and some would say revolutionary, changes. These tend not too be personal but could cause some unrest on a wider level, between countries or cultures. The specific date to look out for this month is May 21st. But these changes are ultimately positive, and have to occur in order for societies to better understand one another.
Things are finally starting to move, after a long time of feeling 'stuck'; but you will need to focus your energy in the right place for it all to flow. This can be a powerful time for you. Things will change quickly so make sure you're ready with a positive attitude. lots of hope, and a sunny smile!
An inspired decision brings you some much needed attention, culminating with the new moon and solar eclipse in your sign on May 9th. Some financial worries persist, but if one thing goes wrong, don't worry - a clear head and good sense will leave you feeling all the stronger for it.
Venus in your sign from 9th, joined n by Mercury on 15th, makes some interesting situations including power struggles in your love life and career, which may not resolve until 22nd. Make the most of your time of year by socialising with those you find inspiring and challenging.
A mixed month emotionally sees you relying on your own toughness at times, appreciating the support of someone who really loves you (even if they don't always show it) and experiencing a sense of loss at letting go. The key is to stand back and let your head rule, rather than your heart.
This month starts and ends well. Keep up with what you do best - socialising with friends and colleagues, as you could feel isolated at times. The people who appreciate you provide a good way to stay grounded. Don't let financial concerns prevent you from making a major move forward.
Letting go of a female from the past may be hard at first, but the lesson is well-learned; quickly you emerge from a situation which may seem disastrous at first with a renewed sense of purpose and direction. Financially, a piece of good fortune is due to come your way as the month ends.
You love to be in love and this is a good time of year for it. Just be wary of someone who is quite controlling, especially where finance is concerned. There is no shortage of well-meant advice around you, but just now you are best staying grounded, and doing what you feel is the right thing.
You know, you don't have to rescue everyone. This month you could learn a lesson about being taken for granted if you even try. In fact this is a great time to move any major projects and plans forward in a clear-headed and focussed way. Look to your strengths for the best direction.
Lots of partnership issues occupy your time and you could feel like a stand-alone support network at times. Try to stand back from emotional involvement and only provide practical help. A full moon and lunar eclipse in your sign on May 25th provide a wake-up call about your priorities.
Change is in the air, which may well involve your work. Don't worry if so, because it's all good; you'll emerge with a greater sense of independence and more creative control. It looks like there is also an increase in income; so roll with any developments, and put your best ideas forward.
Someone close to you needs help but it is futile to become any more embroiled in the situation than you already are. Let the difficulty happen if it needs to; your role is as the tower of strength, not least for yourself. A positive move for you is on the cards if unexpected; consider it carefully.
A youthful male from the past reappears and invites you into a social whirl as the month begins. Don't let yourself be brought down by a legal or formal matter which will need to be sorted; and don't take any notice of harsh words said. This is clearing the path for a much more stable time.
