The Star Cruncher: Your May Forecast

Venus Retrograde May 15th and a Solar Eclipse May 20th bring internal shifts to everyone this month. Venus begins its Retrograde at 23 degrees Gemini, conjuncts Sun and Mercury, and puts relationship communication and what has been left unsaid at the top of the cosmic agenda. Venus trines Saturn which helps us to affirm love amidst some choppy waters.

Solar Eclipse at 0 degrees Gemini falls on the Pleiades degree of “the weeping sisters.” This portends a healing crisis for each of us. Whether it’s a personal or collective crisis, it serves to open our minds and hearts to a greater compassionate point of view. The Sabian Symbol for 0 degrees Gemini is “a glass bottom boat reveals undersea wonders.”

Please also read the forecast for your Rising Sign if you know it. If you’re on a “cusp” and don’t know your Sun sign, you can read both signs to find your fit.

She says, “The whole world opens up to me through symbols that seem to rise off the astrology chart and speak to me. They draw me in and serve as a touchstone for intuitive information to flow through me. I am in an altered state when I am reading the chart. I feel like I’m plugged in to an energetic source, receiving answers faster than I am asking questions.”
