MAY 2008 Horoscope

NEW MOON occurs on May 5, 2008 at 08:18 AM

This New Moon is kissing the Sun in Taurus with a wide orb square to Chiron, the wounded healer, in Aquarius. This is a perfect opportunity to pair up with someone and do something wonderful for your physical, emotional or spiritual health! A beautiful Grand Trine in Earth leaps from this lunation chart! Who can argue when Venus (the planet of love), Saturn (the great teacher and planet of commitment) and Pluto (the planet of power, rebirth and transformation) are all in agreement!! New beginnings take on form and have staying power now! The Nodes dance with Chiron and Neptune on the Aquarian/Leo polarity! It is difficult to heal the heart with the head – we must draw upon a Higher Power!

FULL MOON occurs on May 19, 2008 at 10:11 PM
Amazingly enough, this year we are experiencing two Full Moons in Scorpio! Last month, it occurred in the first degree; this month in the last! The Lights are in a T-square to Saturn in Virgo in the Full Moon lunation chart indicating there is a desire to bring projects to completion with an aliquot of perfection! Saturn is still in trine to Pluto, retrograde in Capricorn, implying that some lose threads of contract or agreement may return to haunt us. Neptune, the Dragon’s Head and Chiron are all in trine to Mercury in Gemini but square to both Venus and the Sun in Taurus! Ideas are rampant – and everyone indicates they have a cure or solution but its practical manifestation will still be elusive!

Mercury Retrograde Alert!
Mercury retrogrades in Gemini on May 26, 2008 at 11:48AM does not station direct until June 19th at 10:31AM. Mercury remains in its shadow until July 4, 2008. This retrograde is a double whammy! Mercury rules Gemini and although communications are always confusing, this one is magnified by it placement in Gemini. Mercury retrogrades once each season but has not retrograded in Gemini since May of 2002. Expect exaggerated concepts, duplicate billing and having to repeat or re-do many projects. Expect the need to repeat or explain yourself to nearly everyone! Take a deep breath!

Jupiter Retrograde Alert
Jupiter, the largest planet, stations retrograde in Capricorn on May 9, 2008 at 08:11AM and does not station direct until September 9th at 00:16AM! It remains in its shadow until November 27, 2008. Corporate affairs and political posturing seem to be reeling backward rather than moving forward. Progress economically will slow down even more. The power is in sound judgment and a conservative approach with resources on all levels. Even as a country, we may halt an increase in debt – but not be able to make much progress in paying off old debt. Pace your generosity but DO honor your commitments in this cycle.

Saturn Stations Direct in Virgo!
On December 19th at 9:11 AM, Saturn retrograded in the sign of Virgo and this May 4, 2008, it stations direct. It still remains in its shadow until August 8th! Saturn offers form to our thoughts and a clearer comprehension of possible solutions and a way to perfect certain systems that can readily manifest as it moves out of its retrograde status. However, Saturn is in trine to Pluto in Capricorn which is still retrograde. Official implementation of these solutions will be in delay by the powers that be. For instance, cures can be found but not approved by the FDA; Treaties can be agreed upon but fail to come to fruition by stronger agendas in rising World powers.

Neptune Retrograde Alert
Aquarian Neptune stations retrograde on May 26th at 12:15PM and remains so until November 1, 2008. It will be in its shadow until February 21, 2009! Neptune, the planet of dreams, imagination, faith, idealism and deception has been positioned in the progressive sign of Aquarius since late January of 1998. We have seen much that has revolutionized technology as well as a growing knowledge that we can be co-creators of our future. It retrogrades each year for a few months which gives us an opportunity to separate true innovation from intellectual illusion. Those with strong Aquarian or Pisces planets often feel they were born in the wrong time period in this cycle. It may, however, be an excellent time to reclaim peace, create new ways to help our fellow inhabitants on this planet as well to fine tune our technology for the masses!

Pluto Retrograde in Capricorn Alert!
On April 2, 2008 at 0523 AM, Pluto, still early in Capricorn stationed retrograde. It remains so until September 8, 2008 at 11.14 PM! This once planet, now dwarf, will ride the Sagittarian/Capricorn cusp all year! We have felt the shift over the past few months and its retrograde motion shows that we need this precious time to adjust. We have gone from global expansion to global occupation. The shift has been unnerving to many! Pluto’s entrance into Capricorn was magnified and dramatized by our largest planet, Jupiter, as it entered Capricorn late last December. Jupiter tours a sign once every twelve years and magnifies the influence of those planets that share that sign! The sign of Capricorn is conservative but initiating. It rules, government, the military, institutions and corporations. Its essence is forbearing and maintaining.
