On MAY, you have the following main configurations: 

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

Uranus enters in Taurus just after a New Moon in Taurus, and just before Mars will enter Aquarius and square Uranus. The emphasis in this chart is on the element of earth. Usually when Uranus enters a sign, there is a signature event, announcing its arrival. Look for such an event around middle of May, just before or a few days after the actual ingress.

RETROGRADE PLANETS: Jupiter (until 10th July) and Pluto (until 2nd October)

MOON PHASES (New York time, USA):

NEW MOON in TAURUS on 15th May 2018 at 07:47: Just hours after the Sun and Moon conjoin, Uranus, planet of radical change, enters Taurus for the first time since 1942. The first of the earth signs, Taurus represents our basic survival needs — food, shelter, clothing, and money. Ruled by Venus, Taurus also favors beauty, pleasure, and sensuality. The ingress of an outer planet into a new sign often coincides with major world events.

Do you remember what have been happened in the very day that Uranus entered Aries (March 11, 2011), an earthquake and tsunami struck Japan, triggering the Fukushima nuclear disaster.

With Uranus entering Taurus, in addition to possible Earth changes, you may see big events in the financial world. Disruptors of the financial status quo are already at play and likely to gain traction: cryptocurrencies, micro-banking, crowdfunding. We may see grassroots movements to free humanity from the control of the banking system, and free the Earth from an economy based on extracting and exploiting resources.

FULL MOON in SAGITTARIUS on 29th May at 10:19: This Full Moon is a call to adventure and initiation. Physical activities can be helpful now, if you’re feeling stuck, go for a walk or a run, dance or stretch. The Full Moon fire is further intensified by its conjunction with Antares (at 9° Sagittarius), the red star at the heart of the Scorpion constellation. Associated with Mars and Jupiter, this potent star symbolizes fearlessness, readiness for action, and success in war. Jupiter, ruler of Sagittarius, is retrograde in Scorpio, suggesting that the fierce fire activated by this Full Moon is best channeled into confronting your own inner demons.

MARS transits:

MARS is in CAPRICORN until 16th May, in exaltation: you are persevering, ambitious, efficient, responsible, organized and dedicated to the projects you are involved in. Very good results on long term projects. MARS is in AQUARIUS starting with 16th of May and is included a retrograde cycle:

Mars in direct motion in Aquarius starting with 16 May 2018

Mars in retrograde station in Aquarius starting with 27 June 2018

Mars in retrograde motion in Aquarius starting with 29 June 2018

Mars in retrograde motion in Capricorn starting with 14 August 2018

Mars in direct station in Capricorn starting with 27 August 2018

Mars in direct motion in Capricorn starting with 29 August 2018

Mars in direct motion in Aquarius starting with 12 September 2018

Mars forms a complicated and dynamic square aspect with Uranus on May 16, repeated on August 1 and September 18. It is up to you to find new ways of expressing the Martian energy or to make unexpected changes that you have no control at all. During this retrograde cycle of Mars, it is preferable to avoid extreme sports and events involving imprudent and risk-of-accident actions. Try not to respond to challenges of any kind during this period. Do not rush things, if you see obstacles in your actions, try to find constructive solutions to move forward. The more you resist the changes, the more you will have conflicts with others. Take more care of yourself and avoid surgery especially in the following areas: hips, thighs, femurs, blood vessels (arteries), sciatic nerve, pelvis, pituitary and liver, genital and excretory system, nose, ovary, bladder and the prostate. Also, male activities may encounter problems during the relegation period of Mars: everything related to cars, army, police and so on. The affected zodiac signs are: Aries and Scorpio and in the signs where the planet is retrograde (Aquarius and Capricorn).

JUPITER transits SCORPIO until 8th of November 2018: Secrets and all kind of occult scandals will come out, so you will not have a boring period, it will be a big ShowTime, especially in politics, secret services, love and sex relationships. Scorpio relates to taxes, banking, and shared resources; consequently, costs may rise. Keeping an eye on our savings and our debts may be paramount to protecting our future interests. Power dynamics may also be more visible during this transit, with some people perhaps wanting to create large displays of their power and influence. The most challenging manifestation of this transit can be fears that tend to multiply. In the darkness, shadows loom larger than life beneath Jupiter’s magnifying influence. Positively expressed, wise Jupiter seeks to understand the complexes that lie in the deepest reaches of the psyche. He knows that great treasures are buried in these mysterious catacombs. Until 10 July Jupiter is in retrograde motion. During this retrograde cycle of Jupiter, people tend to learn from their own experiences some faith-related lessons, and situations may arise when certain adjustments are required for some large-scale projects. If you are traveling during these times, try to organize your traveling better and do not panic if you lose your luggage. You will learn not to rely on the help of others and you will become more adaptable to reality. The affected signs are: Virgo, Sagittarius and Scorpio.

SATURN is already in CAPRICORN, until March 21st, 2020: Saturn is dignified and functioning well. This is a time for turning a critical eye to those of Your career choices that don’t accurately reflect Your authentic selves. Capricorn and Saturn want respect and Saturn in Capricorn will work hard to earn it. Conservation is a big theme now. Taking the easy road is not favoured during this transit. Rewards come from putting in the effort. You might also be striving for more authority in an area of your lives now. Saturn demands simplicity, definition, realism, and truth and it tests your weak areas that need strengthening.

ASCENDANT OR SUN IN LEO: This month you will be very busy, you work like crazy. Because of this you have no time for your family and loved once. Also, some of you may have sudden separations, from a work environment or from a lover. In your love relationship or/and in your business relations you may create conflicts very easy. No matter if you want or not you will become very visible, stand out, reap the benefits of what you sowed before. No matter if you get promoted or you receive an award. You are ambition, and you can consolidate your professional reputation and open new paths towards future success. You are favoured in financial gains, in group activities, online projects, collaborations with big important organizations. Because you are to busy you become more tired and stressed, so try to sleep, rest, relax.

ASCENDANT OR SUN IN VIRGO: All your relationships become complicated because you become suspicious. Anyway, if you want this month to get married it is not the best moment to do it. In the second part of the month you become more benevolent in your relationship, you become more active and you make new friends. If you are single you will find a new lover. If you go out, of course! 😊

In the last ten days of the month money comes more from group projects or from friends. It’s in your best interest to work for or cooperate with organizations, corporations, big firms.
Do not rush and try to not become too stressed, otherwise a work accident may occur.

ASCENDANT OR SUN IN LIBRA: You are in a wilder state, it may occur unexpected changes at home and in your love life. If you have more love relationships, you will be fucked-up. Poor you! 😊. Starting with middle of May everything connected with love, intimacy, joint resources and managing, secrets and love affairs. And this will end after 7 years. I hope on your Facebook will not be written <In a complicated relationship>.
If you’re single, you can now easily find a partner, but you should be careful because you might attract someone who’s already committed. So, again you will be fucked-up. Or maybe you like this situation.
Business partnerships or different associations can become unstable or need readjusting of terms, checking things related to money, and negotiations. In your career and reputation Venus transit is helping you: promotion, appreciation and rewards.

ASCENDANT OR SUN IN SCORPIO: On May you are open to for dialogue, to confess, and to make clarifications in your personal relationship. Uranus’ entry in your 7th house on 15 May. This is a long transit that lasts until 2026 and marks a term of redefining and revolutions in partnerships, of surprises and plot twists, of sudden breakups or marriages. Also, you should be more careful when it comes to new relationships. If you want to gain more money you should involve in partnerships, associations, and joint investments. With Saturn retrograde in your 3rd house you have a tough time finding your words, ideas, arguments.
Too much agitation can cause digestive issues and you become much tired. Also, be aware of accidents within your home environment. Avoid manipulating and to be possessiveness because you may lose on emotional and professional sides.

ASCENDANT OR SUN IN SAGITTARIUS: Love is in the air. If you are single you are favoured in a long-distance relationship. Instead, you are tested in your money administration skills. You have great professional and material ambitions and it is time to use your creativity, talents, to learn new skills. If you don’t like what you’re doing or want to change your area of work, now is pretty much the right time to do it. Anyway, you have 7 years to change you are of work.
Older health issues might occur again, so take more care of your health!

ASCENDANT OR SUN IN CAPRICORN: Because you need to feel safe, you establish rules and boundaries for others. With Uranus in Taurus for seven years brings unexpected events in your love life. Give your better half the chance to help you out of your bad moods; don’t shut yourself off in front of evidence of their love! If you feel alone, it’s only because you tend to push everyone away.
During the last decan of the month communication at work improves a lot but ties with associates in business can become tenser.
Due to tensions and stress you may have health issues: bone area, skin and hair.

ASCENDANT OR SUN IN AQUARIUS: In your relationships you may open older discussions about money, secrets and this may shake your trust. It would be best to find things to do with your better half – things that you’d both enjoy.
You might tend to ignore real money-related issues and focus and to think about unrealistic projects. There is a risk of infection or a symptom of some chronic afflictions. Try to avoid any excesses.  Toward end of month you should avoid excesses of any kind.

ASCENDANT OR SUN IN PISCES: To keep harmony in your love life, you need a lot of patience and open mind when it comes to what your spouse/partner wants. If you are single you have a big chance to have a new lover. Unexpected opportunities might come your way due to associations, collaborations, new contracts. You will fight for other people causes. You are unpredictable but will probably be a group leader. You may become rebellious when angry. Relax more, do not let other to tense.

*) 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.

IMPORTANT NOTES: 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. 

I wish you the best transits!
