Sun Signs for May '13
The information in this
column is limited. It does not replace your seeing your astrologer.
If you know the sign of your Moon and your Ascending sign, read those
sections also. This information is helpful because it mentions
planets passing through your sign. These do bring opportunities.
Special note: Here's
wishing all of you the best in May. The emphasis this month is on the
signs Taurus and Gemini. Whatever we have in our own charts, we also
become these qualities temporarily. Taurus represents the heart of
spring and all that it brings to mind. The Sun in weeks 1, 2, and 3;
Mercury in weeks 1 and 2; Venus in week 1; and Mars all month are in
Taurus. We are sensuous, content, and aware of the beauty around us.
Mars does stir things up and requires that we be smart with money.
The Sun in week 4; Mercury in weeks 3 and 4; and Venus in weeks 2, 3,
and 4 are in intelligent Gemini. We are active, traveling, and
communicating. Jupiter in Gemini will be joined by these bodies and
that keeps things good. A New Moon Solar Eclipse in Taurus on the
and much of the 10th
can bring new starts financially. Spring is in the air to be enjoyed
and we can. Due to the involvement of Saturn and Mars in this
eclipse, let's be a bit cautious. A Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in
Sagittarius on the 25th
and 26th brings
adventures of mind and body. Let's enjoy this but be clear and a bit
Saturn continues in
Scorpio for 2 years. This is huge. Libra has been taxed by Saturn
and now it is Scorpio's turn. Scorpios should expect hard work and
new goals. Watch out for overwork and fatigue and get plenty of rest
and recreation to lift the spirit. In addition to Libra; Aries,
Capricorn, and Cancer should feel relief from a weight. In addition
to Scorpio; Taurus, Leo, and Aquarius should note any deficiencies in
their lives and try to fill them. This positive activity will use up
the Saturn energy.
Israel is in the news. In
their birth chart, early Scorpio rises, a Taurus Sun is in the 7th,
and Moon, Pluto, Saturn, and Mars are in Leo in the 10th.
Saturn has entered into relationship with these planets. This two
year passage of Saturn through Scorpio will set of all of these
bodies in tense ways. Expect trouble. Iran has three planets in
Aquarius forming a grand cross with Israel's planets. The stage is
set. I wish us all luck. The eclipse is stimulating this. A total of
three eclipses will activate this in '13.
The Pluto Uranus square
continues and makes the extreme unpredictable and the unpredictable
more extreme. When you hear about events that are unusually bad, like
tornadoes and earthquakes, Sandy, and the Boston Marathon bombing
this is one of the culprits. This aspect existed in the early 30s. I
have concluded that this square also represents the conflict between
the left (Uranus) and the right (Capricorn). I have finally resolved
it in my own mind. With so much news coverage of the conflicting
positions, I see it as an opportunity to see the good that the left
has to offer and to see the good that the right has to offer. I'll be
writing a paper on the Uranus/Pluto square soon and posting on
facebook. Friend me. I'll include the good things that are coming
from this square like new discoveries about death and the afterlife.
With Saturn in Scorpio
showing intense grief, I'm so happy that I have read, “Life after
Life”, “Evidence for the Afterlife”, “Proof of Heaven”, and
“Heaven is for Real”. These books are as close as we can get to
evidence for heaven and an afterlife, with the exception of having an
NDE. As evidence they are very comforting. Incidentally, “Proof of
Heaven” came out with Jupiter in Gemini. Jupiter is optimism and
faith, and ideas and books come under Gemini's rule.
Days that look fairly
harmonious this month are: 3, 4, 5, 7, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15, 20 am, 21
after 9am, and 28 before evening. For really important events, it
requires a deeper look. Part of the magic of Astrology is how much
better things go when we start things on good days.
Extra special note: I’m
recommending that people read Covey, Dyer, and Chopra during their
birth month. They write about achieving success and happiness and
this is what the Sun is about in our charts. During the birth month
we have the opportunity to start a new cycle of success and these
authors have great ideas on how to do it. For those who want to get
in on the ground floor of understanding existence and
self-improvement, C.C. Zain’s Church of Light books will make you
an astrologer and a metaphysician. These books teach us that there is
a supernatural dimension in and around us that makes life subtle and
interesting. And that Astrology gives us helpful information in
innumerable situations. And finally, that we have the power to change
our lives through Astrology and by harmonizing our feelings and our
