Taurus: (Apr. 20-May 21): This month as your astrology horoscope month begins Taurus, 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 Taurus and Taurus rising this month promises lots of changes, and since Taurus is on the verge of creating their own individuality, realities and unique experiences in their own lives, this is an important month. No longer is Taurus defined by family, friends, mates or partners, Taurus have their very own unique identity.
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.
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. For Taurus and Taurus rising relying on themselves and building a future, a career, and a secure foundation may mean that many of you go it alone or separate from the pack.
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. For Taurus and Taurus rising the New Moon Lunar Eclipse at 19°33’ Taurus occurs in your solar 1st house of independence, fresh starts, charisma and physical attraction. Taurus has plenty of magnetism to spare and could have the opposite chasing them down. Even though you may not be that interested right now you should notice an increase in the amount of attention you get. More importantly Taurus can rely on themselves to earn a substantial income now, by putting their best foot forward, and stubbornly sticking to their ambitions. Determination puts Taurus at the head of the class, and this eclipses promises plenty of cash benefits for all that drive and purpose.
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. This Lunar Eclipses suggests that by doing what you’ve always done in the past you’ll get through any challenge that you face, and financial crisis will be averted.
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. It’s as if you’re being tested and you know the routine and exactly what to do, so just get started!
As the Sun enters Gemini on May 20th the energy and tone changes, as the Sun sheds light on your finances, with several sources of income coming your way. You could find yourself with your little pot of gold running over. Another reason to put your best foot forward and never give up!
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. In Taurus 9th and 12th houses Taurus is haunted by a dream or a fear. Fear of legal action, fear of government rules and laws, fear of travel, fear of missing something (as in not understanding an important piece of the puzzle) and fear of what others think of them. Make sure you read instructions, meet deadlines, you follow the rules and the laws of places you travel to, and that you fully understand your rights. Lots of your subconscious issues can flood through your dreams so look at your dreams carefully.
The planet Mercury (ruler of the sign of Gemini and your 2nd house of money) 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. With Uranus transiting quickly through your 12th house you benefit from being kind to others, philanthropy, good deeds and ridding yourself of bad habits. When you need it the most Uranus brings help and consoles you, through divine intervention.
The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse at 3°57’ Sagittarius May 24th in your solar 8th house of debt, credit, other people’s money, banking and sometimes easy money. Since the sign of Sagittarius is lucky you could be freed from a debt you have. It’s definitely not a time to take on more debt.
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 you could be uncompromising, insistent, and assertive with your money and where it goes. You could also put into action a money making idea.
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.
