THE PLANETS: OUR MONTHLY ARCHETYPES

Sun | Vital Energy

Taurus through the 20th: Our vitality is warming around our senses, simple pleasures, and self-worth.

Gemini May 21st – end of May: Our vitality is warming around mentality, curiosity, and connection.

  • 21st Mercury Conjunct: Our minds seek security and depth of understanding through our intuitive faculties.

 

  • 29th opposed Ceres: A deep integrating pressure will push us to find our rhythm and productivity through being optimistic and open-minded.

 

Moon | Emotion

  • New Moon in Taurus, Saturday the 4th, find alignment in your worth, values, and connection to earthy pleasures.

 

  • First Quarter Moon in Leo, Saturday the 11th, find creativity and courage to claim your worth.

 

  • Full Moon in Scorpio, Saturday the 18th, let insecurity help you know where growing (or letting go) is happening around your power and control.

 

  • Last Quarter Moon in Pisces, Sunday the 26th, find balance in your mentality through sensitivity and mystical connection.

 

Mercury | Mentality

Aries through the 5th: Our minds are pioneering and aggressive

Into Taurus May 6th (12:25pm MDT): Our minds are slow, sensual, and fixed

Into Gemini May 21st (4:52am MDT): Our minds are quick, ready to move, and finding connections

  • 2nd conjunct Eris: Fights being picked may showcase where our attitudes are wounding us, as well as bring light to superficiality in relational conflicts.

 

  • 8th conjunct Uranus: Lightning strikes. Sudden insights could have us breaking away from old constructs in value systems.

 

Venus | Affections and Beauty

In Aries until 15th: Our affections are self-serving and passionate

Into Taurus May 15th (3:46am MDT): Our affections thrive in the sensuality of earthy matter

  • 1st conjunct Vesta: How are you authentic in your need to share the flame that’s inside of you? How are you cooperative, yet keeping healthy boundaries around your sexual and affectionate passions?

 

  • 18th conjunct Uranus: Our need to harmonize may hit a breaking point, finally seeing what’s no longer worth it, but showing us new ways to find hope and excitement in a different future.

 

Mars | Forging Fresh Paths

Gemini until 15th: Our fertile and raw energy is focused on information that can clarify who we are.

Into Cancer May 15th (9:09pm MDT): Our fertile and raw energy is focused on self-nurturing to secure and feed our personal energy.

  • 5th Mars opposed Jupiter: Facing off against his mother, Juno’s, source of frustration, our street smarts may come up against figures that seem too big to penetrate. A David and Goliath moment. Can we use our agility and wits to outmaneuver big obstacles on paths to our grand dreams? Get wily with Mars, also out of bounds right now, and try that wacky, out of left field, path. It may just hold the connection needed to help you charge past the big hurdle, unobstructed.

 

Jupiter Rx in Sag | Expansion & Blind Faith

  • Intensity growing as earth moves into alignment: Deep intensity around our grand visions are showing us that we need to make tweaks to how we are believing and holding perspective. How can you investigate and witness anything blocking the power of your optimism and openness to sharing your beliefs?

 

Saturn Rx in Cap | Structure & Authority

Saturn has just been crossed by the south node of the moon. A time of harmonizing or conflict is potent around how we hold and trust authority. What’s been fair and unfair in your own structuring of position in the world, and what structure and authority in the world is due for karmic balancing of the scales?

  • Intensity growing as earth moves into alignment: To top off an already potent placement of Saturn, it’s place in its synodic cycle has us feeling a lot around blocks to our authority. We can use this time, although heavy, to dig into our depths, witnessing where we’re frozen around our ability to stand tall in the world with responsibility and integrity.

 

Uranus in Taurus | Breaking Free

Now into the 3rd degree of his new 7-year home in Taurus, Uranus is starting to find a little footing. Where the sign of Taurus wants to slow down and give form to things, Uranus wants to electrocute and shock us into systemic changes and group movements. Taurus wants to own and possess, so the character of Uranus in this condition, will dig his heels in and push group energy in an animalistic way toward experimentation of matter, body, and values. This can come out both positive and breaking out of molds that need breaking, but can also tint in experimental ways that’re way over the line. In Taurus, I’ve been reading a lot about our last time with this condition of Uranus: a time of dictators sprang up with Hitler and Mussolini; awful body experimentation was done with prisoners in WW2; serial killers became known in the collective consciousness; and with the stock market crash, ration coupons replaced regular currency. Of course the other outer planets were doing different things than they are this go, but those are also in some pretty crux positions where karmic adjustments are starting to play out with power and authority. The thing to remember here is there is a lot of grey area when it comes to progress and experimentation. Not all of it is good, and when the human body, our matter, including money, and group movements intersect, just a quick warning of caution. Be informed about the groups you align with, the way you value human life, and what you think is real money.

Moving further into the age of tech, I would imagine apps and programs will be coming up that will drastically alter how we connect with the matter of life.

  • 8th conjunct Mercury: This will give us a chance to get the information and messages we are curious about, in how we will each be moving the agenda of Uranus in this material sign forward. Ask for all you need to understand you part.

 

  • 18th conjunct Venus: Ruler of Taurus. This one will be interesting. Venus wants to harmonize, but she can also gloss over the depth of things to placate everyone. Really connect to your body and sensuality around this date. Ask yourself how technology, science, groups, and/or electrifying others feel instinctually. Our body’s know more than our minds and Venus is good at connecting us to our senses. Be careful with animal instincts though. Try new things, but find your moral compass.

 

Neptune in Pisces | Transcend or Escapism

With all the intensity that’s going on in the outer planet territory, we find some softness with Neptune in his home sign of Pisces. This can either be used as a healing balm or for great deceptions through escapism and illusions. But, it does hold a strong link to being able to plug into the beautiful oneness of all where so much inspiration and transcending can take place.

  • Jupiter starting to approach another square: face how optimism and fantasy are challenging each other.

 

  • Saturn and Pluto starting to approach another sextile: this will help soften the potential conflicts coming up around structure, integrity, power, and rising form our ashes. Neptune can send some cosmic and collective assistance, but it needs to be sought.

 

Pluto Rx in Capricorn | Uprooting & Transformation

Pluto is having a moment where having crossed both his own south node and the lunar node having also crossed over him, there is great karma and balancing or conflicts being dragged out of the deep, mysterious undergrounds for the world to see.

  • Intensity growing as earth moves into alignment: in July the earth will move between Pluto and sun, putting pressure on some integration of integrity in power. Leading up to this time, a lot gets shared as we come closer to this time, showcasing what needs tweaking and what others are up to around power and investment.

THE SOLAR-LUNAR BALANCING

Taurus Season, May 1-20
(sun in Taurus - finding solid yet pressured grounds in your worth)
How are you finding joy in aligning your values?

May 4th (4:45pm MDT): Taurus New Moon - solidifying your essential and material value.

May 18th (3:11pm MDT): Scorpio Full Moon - nurturing the command of your power.

Gemini Season, May 21 (1:59am MDT) into June
(sun in Gemini – reviving your thoughts and ways of belonging)
How are you finding connection and joy in your communities?

 

YOUR CHART RULER

Mars

In Gemini until 15th, you are focused on making connections and gathering information. Your planet is out-of-bounds (outside of watchful orbital lines) until mid-June, allowing you some to get inventive, finding headway through connections non-traditional.  This is also an area that can get you in trouble if you outright break laws as you'll feel un-beholden to restrictions.

Moving to Cancer on May 15th (9:09pm MDT), you may start to feel a new sense of insecurity surface that won't be your favorite. But, with all of the learning and gathering you've done earlier in the month, you will start to identify what's real and what's fluff. You just need some time to settle and find depth with this more focused insight before you push into it. Still out-of-bounds, take care of yourself in unique ways, grow extra stability in your life through unusual means, but, again, be careful with your grey areas where the law is concerned.

  • 5th Mars opposed Jupiter: Facing off against your planet's mother, Juno’s, source of frustration, your street smarts may come up against figures that seem too big to penetrate. A David and Goliath moment. It seems you are trying to bypass something big or reach for something that seems unobtainable through your connections and wit. Try some side paths as you may find that link or connection that has the access or guidance needed to hit your impenetrable mark.

In Aries until the 15th, your focus in on the liminal spaces of your life. What do you need to surrender in order to better clarify your identity and sense of self?

Moving to Taurus on May 15th (3:46am MDT), your clarity of Self will start to settle and you'll feel in your element as you can begin to tighten your boundaries, focus on what you want and need, and feel sensual fresh passion come back to life. Make time and space just for you.

  • 1st conjunct Vesta: How is your inner flame being tended? There may be some very personal agendas that need your attention to help you contain and hold your flame just for you at the moment. Feed that thing that's reviving your spark and allure.

 

  • 18th conjunct Uranus: You may find an out of the blue insight or event shocks you into being more conscious to the collective mind. Instead of asking how you can mold humanity to your revolutionary wants, ask how you can contribute to humanity's (or some friendships) time of need?

YOUR CHART RULER

Mercury

In Aries through the 5th, your attention is holding big space with groups and humanity. How are you plugged into what's going on in the world? What new ideas and fresh identification is ready to break out of an old mold?

Moving to Taurus on May 6th (12:25pm MDT), your focus may start to wane as your senses and personal value need you to let go and surrender around some aspect of your values and personal worth. It's time to shed and let go, which is where you will transcend suffering around your connection to the matter of life.

Moving into your home sign of Gemini May 21st (4:52am MDT), you will find a new spark come to life in you. Make plenty of space and time to connect just to yourself. Clear away the debris that your last tour of the zodiac has accumulated. Detox, spring clean, exercise, and breathe deeply to recenter. Allow a  little bit of impulse to push new desires for connection, into the world.

  • 2nd conjunct Eris: Fights being picked may showcase where you are having issues in friendships or certain groups in your life. You may feel the urge to let this affect your own creative juices. Use some anger to help you create, rather than burning down a connection to your heart.

 

  • 8th conjunct Uranus: Lightning strikes. Sudden insights could have you making big breaks with how you have previously valued yourself.

YOUR CHART RULER

Mercury

In Aries through the 5th, it's time to do some deep digging into the mysteries of yourself. What about your identity feel blocked? How are you unclear about who you are? Use the first days of May to uproot, thus transform with new personal magnetism. Hard and painful work, but worth it in the end.

Moving to Taurus on May 6th (12:25pm MDT), now that you've cleared out some life flow to your sense of Self, the path is clear to expand into life with vision. Use your senses to understand what material optimism and beliefs are pushing you out of your comfort zone and into new open-minded territory.

Moving into your home sign of Gemini May 21st (4:52am MDT), you will need to buckle down, focus, and find your integrity at this time. Use your responsibility in how you connect, communicate, and learn to reach high in your career or aspirations.

  • 2nd conjunct Eris: Slights or fights being picked due to how you share of yourself or around your mysterious Self may have you fuming. Channel this energy to help you light a fire under how you find personal value through harmonizing rather than burning down elements of your elegant personal worth.
  • 8th conjunct Uranus: Lightning strikes. Sudden insights could have you making big breaks with how you have previously held vision or optimism around your worth.

YOUR CHART RULER

Pluto

Newly retrograde in Capricorn, also having just been crossed by the lunar south node and your own south node, this could feel like a very triggering time for you. Great equalizing is taking place. Often conflict surfaces as a need to harmonize pushes in. It's time to be more considerate of others, to cooperate in how your power is used, and put yourself in the shoes of others a lot more. With this all taking place in your 3rd house, responsibility and integrity around community, communication, and connections could be the source of your triggers. when the moon passes of your ruler on the 22nd/23rd, this may be reflected to you in deep ways.

YOUR CHART RULER

Jupiter

With your ruler in retrograde, intensity is building that will come to head next month. It's a time when you are finding new paths and passions as Jupiter has returned to your sign for a new 12-year journey, but right now, a push to share these new impulses into the world is bringing feedback that could be hard to swallow. It's all meant to help you make adjustments. Don't take things personally right now, but do listen to the cues as to what needs more precision around inclusivity of what the world wants from you vs what you want.

  • On the 5th, an opposition from Mars in your 7th house could create a conflict or a new awareness of something that needs harmonizing around how you're communicating details with others vs your personal drive and passions that are not so detail oriented. Use this as a time to understand how you can handle the details better (and with Mars out of bounds, find exciting, bold clarity through others) for greater elegance around your newly forming perspectives.

YOUR CHART RULER

Saturn Retrograde in Capricorn

I'm not going to lie, you've had the raw end of the stick in the zodiac for years now. Last year your ruler finally moved out of your shadow house into your own sign, making way for a grand new 29-year reboot. But, Pluto is hovering in your sign, digging into your interiors, uprooting stagnant blocks, and re-hauling who you are. Technically your ruler won't fully conjunct Pluto until next year, but they are sitting very close together so the intensity of it is being felt. On top of this, the south node of the moon crossed over your ruler in your sign at the very end of last month. So, just as your ruler wants you to re-center and focus on self, it seems there are some karmic things to deal with around harmonizing and relationships. What is currently fair or out of balance in how you identify with your personal integrity? How are others pushing on this right now? How does your personal space feel a little exposed or invaded by the demands of others? It's time for you to take responsibility for your self-development, using the feedback coming in to help you find more consideration and elegance in your personal boundaries. It could also be time to cut some cords if your sense of Self is too considerate and sacrificing with others, making it impossible for you to find personal balance. The cosmos doesn't have it out for you. It's just trying to mold you into the most gracious and reformed person it knows is hiding inside of you.

Neptune

With Jupiter in Retrograde, he's closing in on another square-off with your ruler. Although it won't hit exact this month, it'll still be felt. What around your expansion in career or position in the world is challenging you to be more optimistic about who you are as a person?

Pluto and Saturn also retrograde will begin closing in on a sextile to your planet, showing a lot of energy around how you can find confidence in your responsibilities of holding space for groups or in innovative creation. These two planets are sitting on potent spot in our stars right now, but they are somehow aligning to be helpful and exciting for you. Just take the time to tap into them by engaging with groups, friendships, or technology.
