The month of May features astrological fireworks in the form of two eclipses, a Mercury Retrograde in Mercury’s own sign of Gemini, and Jupiter changing signs, entering into Aries the same day that Mercury turns to retrograde motion, on May 10th. Eclipses arrive in batches twice a year and are high-powered lunations when the Sun and Moon come together in zodiacal longitude and, as well, the vertical dimension known as declination, so that they have the potential to occlude or shadow each other. Their effects are said to last six months. The Taurus New Moon Solar Eclipse that governs the May month launches its thirty-day cycle on April 30th, in the early afternoon on the west coast or up to early evening depending on how far east, and features Uranus in the same sign and only a few degrees away, and as well beautiful Venus–Jupiter–Neptune conjunction that speaks of joy and spiritual connection in the midst of the seeming disasters of this difficult decade. The May 15th Lunar Eclipse and Full Moon that follows two weeks later might serve as something of a culmination for the transformational evolutionary developments of this precious timing.
In the April 30th event, there are several notable astrological features that will colour the next thirty days of this current lunation cycle, at least, and perhaps all the way to early November and the fall eclipses. They are, first and foremost, the presence of Uranus in fairly close conjunction with the Sun and Moon, four degrees away. This brings further surprising events and also revelatory information that arises in unusual ways, from the depths of our intuitional faculty. The Sun and Moon also sextile Mars at 11 Pisces almost exactly, bringing in that powerful energy for action orientation. Then, as far as new planets, with Pluto in particle square to Haumea at 28 Libra, there is as well an exact parallel between Uranus and Haumea, the latter representing Nature connection, protecting the environment, and ancient principles of moral compass, right action and right relationship, that are very present in their articulation or else in their absence during this difficult decade of the chaotic culture war and outright attack on sovereign nations.
