ASTROLOGY NEWSLETTER MAY 15- JUNE 1, 2023
THE New Moon on May 19 in Taurus is in an aspect called a stellium. A stellium is a series of planets that are in the same sign or in a series of degrees that function as a block of energy. It’s a power aspect that focuses laser-like on the department of life the sign rules.
Taurus is a fixed earth sign. Ruled by Venus, Taurus represents pleasure, nature, love, art and cash. It rules finances and affection.
If you’re wondering where is my pleasure in life, you’re not alone.
With the New Moon squaring Saturn, the energy is focused on solving a problem about love, pleasure and money.
The wear and tear of life is limited to work, surviving and staying sane.
Blame Pluto and Saturn.
Pluto moving out of the familiar Capricorn place of work and traditional responsibility makes for a huge planetary change that brings uncertainty and anxiety.
Saturn moved into Pisces and brought all that you hold onto, into question. Pisces springs the existential question what is the meaning of this time, relationship, project, new dress in the enormity of the cosmos?
The New Moon on May 19 asks for a solution. Find the pleasure in life. Find the sweetness, find the thing you want to taste and enjoy.
Look for what you did as a child that didn’t have to add up to money, security and survival.
The pressure of life is too much and too present to allow for a time of rediscovery.
Serious questions about the state of the world, surviving and dominating are hitting a wall.
The seriously unhappy predictions are:
The dreaded debt ceiling question could be an aspect of this New Moon. It might get pushed to the brink along with your security.
A leader could be felled by a health or unpredictable event. Earthquake, earth event or something that lands as a political event could destabilize the economy. A stellium focuses energy in a big way. Taurus is your cash and there’s a threat it might go down the drain.
Your individual life is starving for more love, pleasure and security. But, people are not up to dealing with anything other than the day to day. It is possible within the day to day that a long con gets played when no one sees the big picture.
If you’re beginning with a new person or a new business, be aware that an exalted New Moon together with Uranus tips the positive into the unpredictable.
If you have an expectation of continuity you might be surprised.
A glamorous couple fights while a music man goes through a trauma.
Money and cash could go up and down radically.
Love and family security have a surprise development from out of the blue.
Love and values are ruled by Taurus. Go through a period of self-examination around your relationships. How to value them? The past is retriggered from a present event when the effects of the last Lunar Eclipse plays out.
You might need to do a 180 with a commitment. Love goes upside down on many levels. If someone from the past shows up, it upsets the status quo. Chaos could affect the most stable.
Mercury going direct on May 14 brings more communication up to speed. The underside of the Eclipse reveals itself. If someone in your life is not genuine, come up for air.
Jupiter is in square with Pluto. Any set- up for transaction is outed. Simply put, the shadow side of a relationship shows itself. If you’re shocked or surprised look back to what happened under the Eclipses. All the indications were there.
A fascistic sub -theme emerges in the world. More power is the focus. If you’re with someone for reasons other than love, it becomes clearer. Your cards get called. If you freak out, you can walk away. Otherwise, grin and bear it.
Jupiter squaring Pluto represents the usury aspect of greed and manipulation. If you want to be free and easy in relationship this period is not for you. Any arrangements will be binding. Be careful of all dealings with contracts and selling. Business developments that appear to be equal will be exposed in time to be a long con. Government makes mistakes that will end up costing.
This period might seem trifling yet it will prove to be one of the bigger indications of a global shift. All the secrets will be exposed in time. People are in their higher (or lower) natures. Innocent spontaneity is a thing of the past. “It is what is” becomes basic and deadly.
Try to remember when you did something without a strategy.
Be close to yourself and allow the higher part of yourself to lead. The crude self grabs for more. What is insatiable will be crystal -clear. Be genuine with those you love. This is a turning point time to let go of all the fake stuff. I love you is the theme in its’ most natural and genuine state. Making heaven on earth is the new mission.
All that is left determines the future.
