May 2013 Astrology Forecast: Two Eclipses, Uranus-Pluto Square

Astrology Forecast


May is a dynamic astrological month! For starters, we have both a Solar Eclipse (Taurus New Moon) and a Lunar Eclipse (Sagittarius Full Moon). The decade-defining Uranus-Pluto square brings its revolutionary energy to a third peak, then forms a potent T-Square with Vesta. Gentler events include a Venus-Jupiter conjunction and a Mercury-Neptune-Saturn Grand Trine. And the Sun enters Gemini!

5/9. Solar Eclipse (Taurus New Moon)
5/20. Sun enters Gemini
5/20. Uranus-Pluto square
5/23. Uranus-Pluto-Vesta T-Square peaks
5/25. Lunar Eclipse (Sagittarius Full Moon)
5/28. Venus-Jupiter conjunction
5/30. Mercury-Neptune-Saturn Grand Trine begins

The Story So Far

As May opens, we have two retrograde planets: Saturn thru 7/8 and Pluto thru 9/20. And the pervasive energies of revolutionary transformation (a Uranus-Pluto square), as well as universal love, compassion and spiritual awakening (Neptune in Pisces), remain powerful for years to come!

Void-of-Course Moons

It’s best to avoid starting important new projects or making major purchases during these times. “Business as usual” is the best strategy for these periods, which occur when the Moon has made its last major Ptolemaic aspect but has not yet moved into the next sign.
