Libra: (Sep.23-Oct. 23): This month as your astrology horoscope month begins Libra, 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. Libra and Libra rising are going through the painful process (painful because Libra doesn’t like making decisions) of asserting their independence and finally coming to the conclusion that others are taking advantage of their precious time. It’s not anyone’s fault but your own, for not setting boundaries early on. In an effort to avoid conflict in the past Libra has a handful to deal with now. So it’s important to take care of your health under stressful conditions.
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 Moon is the natural ruler of the 4th house and your 10th house of authority, and since the Moon changes signs every 3 days or so, so do your ambitions and leadership style.
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. The Taurus-Scorpio axis is Libra and Libra rising’s solar 2nd and 8th houses, both money houses, both moral houses. The 2nd house is what’s yours and yours alone and the 8th house is what you share with others, and individual, partner, mate or corporation.
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. The New Moon Annular Solar Eclipse in Taurus starts a new cycle of activity in your solar 8thhouse of joint finances (what belongs to “us”) and since Libra it’s natural for Libra to form close partnerships this issue comes up with the New Moon eclipse and a new agreement is reached or Libra tries to get more of what belongs to “us” moved over to what belongs to me. No easy feat, but the new Moon eclipse moves you closer to your goal. Togetherness and intimacy are also issues that get a fresh start under this eclipse as Libra wants to feel good in all different ways.
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.
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 and becomes lighter when the Sun enters your solar 9th house of travel, new experiences and freedom. It might be a nice time to plan a trip as it could take away lots of the stress you’re feeling.
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. The Uranus-Pluto square occurs in your solar 4th house of property matters, family and self-sufficiency (the ability to support yourself) and your solar 7th house of personal relationships, marriage and partnerships (the planet Uranus also rules Profits, because it’s the 2nd house to your career house), another reason for Libra to break from oppressive partnerships?
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. Things take off and Libra could be jetting all over meeting new people and possible partners; Libra’s looking for stimulating, interesting, fun people these days.
The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse at 3°57’ Sagittarius May 24th in your solar 3rd house of brutal honesty. The emotionally charged Full moon eclipse could have you saying or doing something no one expects from you.
Mercury enters Cancer where it will spend a considerable amount of time considering Mercury will retrograde in Cancer where Jupiter will enter at the end of June.
As Mars enters Gemini, your solar 9th house of legalities, education and travel make sure you are on time for everything. Missing deadlines or being late for your plane isn’t fun.
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.
