On MAY we have the following main configurations: 

We are playing this month with ups and downs, one hot and one cold, but anyway it looks better than last month. Starting with 3rd of May communication are improving and you may use in changing waves that are helped by the trine aspect between Saturn and Uranus: changes on long term basis and on solid ground.

And this is not all, Mars and Jupiter form a wonderful trine on 12th May: energy, motivation, action and drive.

Let’s see the dark side of the force that makes us to move our butts, no matter if we want or not: Mars in Gemini forms a T-square with Neptune in Pisces on 11th May and an opposition with Saturn is Sagittarius on 29th of May – again big issues with fanatic attitude in religion, addiction problems, migration issues, opening of Pandora’s box. And of course we do not escape so easy of big scale accidents (fire, explosions and natural disasters).

Venus in Aries forms an opposition with Jupiter in Libra on 19th May and a square with Pluto in Capricorn on 25th may and a conjunction with Uranus on 29th May, in this way Jupiter – Uranus – Pluto T-square is awake again: the issues and focus will be on relationships (love, marriage, friendships, collaborations, business, international cooperation and peace.


Do not forget the following meanings when planets are retrograde:

Direct moving – the best moment for action, the energy of the planet is good;

Retrograde station – not good, do not start any important action in this period;

Retrograde moving – do not act, try to relax and observe the reality, it is better to (re)think your actions and your strategies;

Direct station – the events is going in good direction;

On 20th May, the SUN ingress in GEMINI: Happy Birthday for all natives!

Important note: In all my astrological research and interpretations I use the Whole signs (house system) because it is the oldest house system (used by ancient Greek astrologers) who has proven its real value during history. When I am writing about aspects between planets, I use aspect from sign to sign; I am using a traditional way of interpretation of aspects. An aspect is not a must to be at perfect orb to have an effect. It is enough if we have a planet in a sign that forms an aspect with another planet from another sign. The most powerful aspects are: conjunctions, oppositions, squares and trines.

*) If you do not know yet your Ascendant you may find it very easy by using any other free astrology website or software that you can find on internet. For this calculation you need: day, month, year, location, hour and minutes of your birth. If you have possibility try to use the Whole signs (house system) because it is the oldest house system (used by ancient Greek astrologers) who has proven its real value during history.
