As May arrives, we find ourselves in between eclipses and from what I've been hearing, it seems many out there are experiencing a strong sense of being in between themselves in this, our inverted world.
A partial eclipse of the Moon occurs on May the 5th (not visible in North America and Europe) thereby bringing a closure to this two-week eclipse period with the solar eclipse occurring on April the 20th.
More emotions will be stirred up!
The aftermath of the solar eclipse has been a wicked one and having Mercury in retrograde at the same time has been like a double whammy hit to our nervous system.
What did this two-week period unfold for you?
Has it been a dark night of the soul period for you or have you seen obstacles and complications with people around you?
Have you received any insights?
This time around Mercury retrograde has brought in more anxiety with many people and overreaction has often been the consequence, even hostility with some.
Mercury signifies small animals and pets and sadly several people have lost their pets during this time and for reason it has been mostly with their cats.
Respiratory problems have also come to forefront with many as Mercury signifies the bronchial area as well as the shoulders and neck.
However, in all of this we have had planets transiting in favourable signs such as Venus in Taurus, Sun exalted in Aries and even Saturn in its own sign of Aquarius.
What does this mean?
It indicates that the underlying current is supportive for you, more for people who have these planets and signs in a favourable placement in their charts.
For example, a Leo ascendant (not your sun sign) will have Venus and the Sun in houses that will manifest more success and fortune, but caution is advised regarding the relationship house.
Virgo ascendants need to batten down the hatches (so to speak) as more expenses may be happening, even health issues such as re-occurring colds.
On May 8th,9th, and 10th we will experience the Sun in conjunction with Uranus. This transit signals a time of excitement, unexpected change, freedom, and rebellion.
Are you tired of complying to the clowns in the circus?
You should feel a strong urge to break from routine and do something different from your normal activities.
The Sun with Uranus may very will open your consciousness to higher vibrations, perhaps resulting in greater self-awareness or psychic perception.
However, at the same time Venus enters the fierce constellation of Adra which could bring your desire for change and freedom and that may bring in some difficulties in your relationship. This will be ongoing for two weeks. Remember at this time, not to be overly impulsive or make final decisions in your relationship if those issues come up.
From May 20th we will have the great conflict come in with Mars going into opposition to Pluto and that people is a warring energy!
Do your best to keep a lid on your impatience. There may be some events that get out of your control and you feel you have just had enough.
Also Watch out for more conflict taking place in the world.
Thankfully at this time, Venus will leave the difficult constellation it was in (the 20th) and mercury will have finished its retrograde (the 15th) meaning more clarity will come to you (Mercury signifies nervous system and our mind) and your obsessions (Venus-enthusiasm and love) on certain matters will lessen.
All in all, chop wood, carry water and keep juggling these planetary energies in this carnival we call life! Here is the perfect song
Please do book a private reading with me if you'd like to see how your own planets are affected during these tumultuous times.
