Aries (Mar 20-April 20): This month as your astrology horoscope month begins Aries, May 1st falls right in between the Spring Equinox and the Summer Solstice. The 2nd and 3rd eclipses in an eclipse cycle that began with the Full Moon eclipse April 25th occurs, and the 3rd of the great Uranus-Pluto squares at 11° define May as an undeniable time of change. For Aries or Aries rising going solo and wanting the world to center around you and your interests clashes with others. Perhaps you are more outgoing and have better ideas but when it comes to blending your needs and desires with others or another, you will have problems.
Some say Eclipses are fated events that occur in the world, or in our lives. Or are eclipses those monstrous emotions inside of us that force us to make change, take an action, and could they be reactions to someone else who has . Makes sense that when the Moon and the Sun come together emotions or feelings meet with the ego or that life force within us and we are the stewards of change in our own lives or the lives of others. The New Moon Solar Eclipse of May 9th announces a time of new found wealth and prosperity for Aries, and the issue of sharing comes up as an afterthought.
In May we become more aware of contrasts, and contradictions, as the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Pallas and the Lunar South Node oppose Saturn RX then the Lunar North Node in Scorpio. In ancient astrology the dragon’s head and the dragons tail (the Lunar North Node and the Lunar South Node) were considered the abode of disincarnate spirits. Today the Lunar Nodes rule past and future incarnations. The North Node leads us into the future and the South Node pulls us back into the past. This Taurus-Scorpio axis also deals with morality vs. immorality, puppy love vs. sexual excesses, gentleness vs. cruelty and the beauty of spring vs. the cold dampness of impending winter. Taurus is calm, sweet, and laid back, until pushed too far; Scorpio intense and on the defensive no matter what. The sign of Scorpio rules intensity, purpose, determination, facing challenges head on, the underworld, manipulative schemes, the dark side of things, ugliness, and we are very sensitive to this dangerous undertaking of facing challenges and to this polarity in our lives. It’s easy now to want to fall back to the sweet, easy going days of yesteryear but, Saturn RX and the Lunar North Node try to pull us forward and we can find every excuse not to go forward. It’s the back drop to the New Moon Eclipse in Taurus and for now until the next New Moon eclipse in Scorpio in November, the easy life wins. In the overlay of Aries and Aries rising this important axis Taurus and Scorpio is a tough one, because Uranus is in Aries 1st house and everything Aries has succeeded at lately has been because they went out and got things started themselves for themselves. When the fruits of your labors start rolling in, it brings a challenge because in all honesty did you get to where you are all by yourself. Someone has their hand out and is reminding you that they helped you and perhaps deserve some of your treasure.
The New Moon Annular Solar Eclipse at 19°33’ Taurus on May 9th starts a new cycle of activity perhaps of financial in nature. The sign of Taurus rules creature comforts, money, personal wealth, belongings and possessions. More importantly Taurus is productive in making money, figuring out how to get it, or how to achieve a desire. Taurus doesn’t like to be pushed and the wrong approach could cause people to dig in their heels and become unmovable. You could be ultra-sensitive to being approached to wrong way and just decide to be stubborn early this month, but with Saturn staring you down, you’ll question yourself and wonder if you did the right thing. Saturn loves to bring on the guilt trip. Since Saturn is retrograde and going through its 2nd pass, it could be worse than the 1st pass, most definitely. As Saturn RX confronts each of the personal planets in your 2nd house of money, it could restrict your free spending ways. Maybe a bank loan you have to pay back, a person you owe something to, mate or partnership that’s dissolving and or taxes. Aries has plans and wants to spend but may be stopped or just made to feel guilty. Since it’s a New Moon Eclipse though Aries decide to take control and with a resounding says “it’s my money”.
Looking back earlier this year the Lunar South Node was at 19°33’ Taurus on Feb. 26th -27th, 2013 and Mars will be at 19°33’ Taurus May 17th. The South Node rules the incarnation or path we’re coming out of (life of leisure, comfort, loyalty, easy life, free spending, pleasure principle… etc.) Mars in Taurus is determined to find new means or modes to get more creature comforts, money, personal wealth, belongings and possessions. Mars may demand loyalty even when it doesn’t deserve it. Mercury gives new ideas or points us in the right direction. The Lunar North Node in Scorpio is pointing to where we need experience and in Scorpio, hardcore anything, self-preservation, it deals with will power, sharing, credit, banking and managing joint finances. Mars is Aries ruling planet and furthers the notion that Aries will stand their ground and maybe has to especially if boundaries were not set in the past regarding money, assets, ownership and possessions.
There’s nothing that brings out your resourcefulness than having your back against the wall. The fixed signs Taurus and Scorpio can do just that. Both signs are unyielding and seemingly immovable and uncompromising. As the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars and Pallas aspect Saturn RX in Scorpio and you have to be just as unwavering in your longing to overcome personal trials, delays and tests.
Just as the Sun enters Gemini on May 20th the energy and tone changes in your solar 3rd house you’re back to putting ideas into action especially new ideas. You’ll run into a little delay with the Full Mon eclipse when you realize its back to the drawing board because there’s something you didn’t know that you thought you knew.
The 3rd Uranus in Aries square Pluto RX in Capricorn occurs on May 20th, and this time around Uranus is direct and Pluto is retrograde. Things change rapidly in May! We’ve been here before, it’s the 3rd time and indicates times and tastes are changing and evolving at a fast rate. The world is changing at such fast pace those major industries like publishing, TV, advertising, and photography, have all been changed by the digital age. We can’t even run a red light without getting photographed. For Aries and Aries rising having Uranus in your 1st house puts you front and center and many of you could be mavericks, and contribute to change in the world, if you can overcome Pluto in Capricorn your 10th house of going against the establishment or the way things are done and have been done.
The planet Mercury (ruler of the sign of Gemini) is the lower octave of lightning fast Uranus and is moving very quickly this month, through two signs, Taurus and Gemini. So we can expect things to move quite fast after May 20th. In your 1st and 3rd house ideas race through your head, catch one!
The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse at 3°57’ Sagittarius May 24th in your 9th house of travel, red tape, learning to understand more deeply, publishing and freedom. Aries becomes aware of how much personal freedom they’ve lost over the last year this becomes more powerful in the future when Saturn enters Sagittarius. Avoid legal battles, meet deadlines, tend to all these minor fees we all have to pay and get more education.
As Mars your ruling planet enters Gemini your 3rd house of intelligence, you communicate well and are overflowing with ideas and concepts that you can put to good use. o interest in gadgets and the latest and greatest of everything increases.
Just a note: Mercury enters Cancer in June where it will spend a considerable amount of time considering Mercury will retrograde in Cancer where Jupiter will enter at the end of June.
Saturn RX is retrograde in Scorpio, and there’s no way that Saturn doesn’t generate problems in personal relationships here. Scorpio represents power, joint finances, as the 2nd house to the 7th house of personal relationships and marriage it is your partner’s morals, possessions, comfort, support, what they own, what’s important to him or her, what they love, and sometimes who they love. No matter where Saturn RX in Scorpio is transiting in your Natal Birth Chart relationship issues are influencing it somehow.
