May 2020 first 2 weeks planetary influence and possibilities.
Mercury will not turn retrograde this month, although it feels like the whole world is retrograde. There are planets that are retrograde. But wait a minute, there’s “Zoom,” there are conference calls, there are tv shows being filmed from people’s homes. That doesn’t sound like we’re being held back too much, does it? We are stationed at home unable to be spontaneous and do whatever we feel like. Nor can we go whenever we feel like it just for the heck of it. That is ok for me. I tend to be too impulsive (sometimes) with Moon conjunct Jupiter on the Rising at birth. Some people do find comfort in getting in the car and just driving. And there are others who say, “This isn’t really any different from how I live my life—guess I’m a bit of a hermit.” How many times have you heard that?
May 1 – 3 also May 18 – 20. Venus in Gemini is in a disappointing aspect with Neptune in Pisces. As you may know Neptune is the ruling planet of Pisces. Each sign has a ruling planet. Venus when in Pisces is known to be “exalted.” Here is Venus in Gemini very grounded to earthly delights and Neptune reaching for the stars without limitation to grand idealism. We all long for grand knowingness in the depth of our Divine Beingness. We are Starseeds. We are golden. Joni knew. We are the Divine Spark made manifest ready to shine Light/Love on all that is. This is to help navigate the Truth of who (HU= Divine Presence) we all are! Venus in this challenging aspect (90 degrees) invites you to find answers to your idealistic longing by sharing valued sacred truths. Alas, this aspect brings about sadness with the harshness of life here on earth and the pettiness of superficial relationships. It hurts to notice how we forget to honor and be the Light that we all are for one another. If you notice you’re setting yourself up for a disappointment by wanting to share certain information with someone who does not want to hear it, then decide not to share it. Emit the Light that you are, and love them as they are, in their process, on their time.
May 3 – 5 Mars is awkwardly aspecting Pluto, which is known to increase the desire for transformation of ego and unite with the Divine Will. This aspect inspires hope. Taking action and doing something that will make a difference takes effort, unlike other aspects that give you extra added strength.
May 3 – 4 The Sun and Mercury are conjunct in Taurus. You may want to re-commit to your path to learn and understand universal Laws for stability and inner security. This is the right time to be steadfast in your commitment to the Light. Your mind is active and may trick you to become invested in the ego, which is not your goal in life, nor mine.
May 5 – 7 Mercury is in a favorable (60 degree) aspect with Neptune offering uplifting music to soothe your Soul and inspire your creative juices to flow.
May 7 – 9 Mercury in Taurus is in a positive aspect with Pluto in Capricorn. You’re not satisfied with the answers the media is giving. You’ve got the patience and drive to do some in-depth research and find out other possibilities. You’re acting like a detective, especially if you were born with the Sun in Scorpio. Those individuals are natural detectives. You’re capable enough to understand psychological profiles. Have you ever taken the Myer-Briggs or the Enneagram test? These go deeply into finding out who you are on the personality spectrum. However, the truth is you’re a ”Starseed” and probably not from “here,” originally.
May 7 The Full Moon takes place at 6:45 a.m. with the Moon at 17 degrees of Scorpio directly opposite the Sun at 17 degrees of Taurus. Year after year this particular Full Moon seems to shake us up by taking us deeper and deeper into revealing what we don’t like and what we can do to bring about healing and transformation. This is an intense time and could last for three extra days. One good thing is that Neptune is mathematically involved because it is located at 20 degrees of Pisces and offers spiritual healing to those who have been requesting it.
May 8 – 10 The Sun and Mercury in Taurus are in a positive aspect with Jupiter in Capricorn. This aspect favors those who write or are on the radio educating the rest of us and sharing spontaneous humor. If you’re not out in the public, your voice is heard by friends who enjoy your humor laced with spiritual wisdom. Don’t hold back.
May 10 Saturn turns retrograde today until September 29. This is the time for planning and envisioning something you want to create and manifest. Maybe you want to organize an event for the future or study maps to figure out where you really want to go and why. This is a good time to take an online class to develop self-discipline and develop your mind, or perhaps you’re planning to teach a class. Saturn retrograde says, “Take your time and do it right.”
May 10 – 11 I’ve learned that even if I know this aspect is coming it still gets me blindsided by it’s abruptness. I’m referring to Mercury in a challenging aspect to Mars. It stimulates arguments that suddenly erupt out of nowhere. It may take time before this aspect clears up. Years ago while in a conflict with someone at Sparrow Hawk, the intentional spiritual community we lived at in Tahlequah, Oklahoma, I learned a big lesson. A woman in the community would not talk with me to clear up our conflict for three weeks. Boy was that hard, to wait so long to work things out. Meanwhile I learned a lot about myself.
May 10 – 28 Mercury moves into Gemini and remains here without turning retrograde. You’ll notice that your mind is sped up and it’s easy to get distracted and scatter your energies. The ideas that come to mind, however, are incredibly worthwhile and will make you smile at your own cleverness.
May 10 –12 Mercury is now in a positive aspect with Saturn in Aquarius. Your mind is focused and you can concentrate and accomplish just what you had hoped to and feel good about being productive.
May 11 – 17 The Sun in Taurus is in a positive aspect with Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn. This aspect can bring financial success to a project that has been in the works for a while. Those born between January 11 – 18, May 11 – 18, or September 13 – 20 of any year are feeling this aspect most personally. You may not have a project that brings about financial gain. This aspect shows you being productive and satisfied. This is a great time for planning and aiming for security and stability in the material world.
May 13 – June 27 Mars enters Pisces ushering in the direction of increasing faith and the joy stored deep within. I’ve noticed over the years that this is when a stray cat appears and wants to become part of my family. I’m thinking of Bill Withers’ famous song, with these lyrics, “We all need somebody to lean on.” Mars is directed by Pisces’ feeling heart, to help those in need. Sharing and caring in whatever way you’re inclined is what this phase is about. Mars while in Pisces could make things worse for those with drug or alcohol issues. Be watching out for them.
May 13 – June 24 Venus is retrograde. Much time is spent learning how others see you and what they think of you. You may find yourself mulling over and over certain conversations and how you would have handled them differently. Much thought goes into trying to figure out how other people think and why. You might even notice yourself shifting to accommodate others so they feel more comfortable in your presence. Then you need to decide if this is how you want to be.
May 14 – September 12 Jupiter is now retrograde, too. Faith. “May your faith increase.” I remember when Jupiter was struck in the side by a particle of “Comet Shoemaker Levy 9.” I felt saddened that our faith was somehow being tested by a karmic wound long forgotten. Last time Jupiter was retrograde was from April 2019 to mid-August 2019. It takes place every summer. Now with Jupiter retrograde you’re invited once again to evaluate what your faith is based on. Jupiter represents expansion. You may study subjects that expand your awareness of history here on this planet or elsewhere in the multiverse. There are many who claim to have “remembered” their other lives off planet. You might find this of interest, and want to learn what is being said.
