Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio May 2022

The Full Moon occurs at 05:14 (BST) on May 16, 2022, at 25°Sc17′. This is a potent lunation and a total lunar eclipse. With the Full Moon in Scorpio, conjunct the South Node and sextile to ruler Pluto, we’re pushed to walk deep into the Underworld, to explore our fears and shadows. A square from Saturn to the Lights and the Nodes too, may bring up intense resistance and yet, the same connection tells us that we are capable, and we can respond differently if we choose. The message repeated continuously through the chart is that we are building a new world and right now, what is old and dying and no longer useful must be released to fertilise new growth. But sometimes letting go is hard so we must trust the process, trust ourselves, trust the soul to lead us. The Moon’s trines to...

Weekly Astrology Forecast May 16 – 22, 2022

Excerpt from Patreon – Also on May 18, Sedna lands on the final degree of Taurus, a critical degree and one associated with The Weeping Sisters. You can find out more about this degree here – the commentary on the degree starts at 12mins 54 seconds in that recording. Now we know that we have reached a critical point in our evolution. We are coming to the end of a journey of 54 years as Sedna entered Taurus back in 1968. Think how much has changed since then. Think of how the landscape has changed in your local area, how the planet has changed, how our values have changed, how the pursuit of riches and resources as developed over time and how that has reshaped our world. Sedna, betrayed by her Father, can also represent the bitterness that we feel, the rage at the rape of Mother...

Excerpt from Patreon – Finally for the week, on May 15, Ceres enters Cancer. Ceres is about mothering and nurture and Cancer is connected to childhood, home, family, roots and belonging so this is a blend of influences that work well together. Ceres is comfortable in Cancer and at her most nurturing and protective here. During this transit, Ceres asks us to take care of family business, look after ourselves and our homes, cherish our roots. However, as Ceres can also be connected to feast and famine, loss and gain, we may also have to face where we don’t feel nurtured, cared for or like we belong. If family life has been difficult, we may feel more keenly the grief that arises when we feel left out or unloved. The shadow of Ceres in Cancer may also manifest as being overly protective. Cere...
Mercury Retrograde May 2022

Mercury Retrograde May 2022

Mercury entered the shadow zone of its upcoming retrograde period on April 26, 2022. The retrograde itself begins on May 10, when Mercury will station in its home sign of Gemini. Mercury’s backward motion will take it back into Taurus on May 23 before stationing direct on June 3. Mercury will exit the shadow zone on June 19, 2022. All dates and aspects are listed below. When Mercury stations retrograde, we are asked to go within, reconnect with ourselves and revisit old ground. We have to go backwards to go forwards. We must look to where we have been before looking to where we’re going. Often around this period, we can experience problems with miscommunication, wrong-timing, transport troubles, missed messages buses, taxis or planes. Computers go on the blink, work disappears, or we forge...

Excerpt from Patreon – Jupiter also moves onto the final degree of Pisces on May 5 too. This anaretic degree is where things become most Pisces. Anaretic degrees emphasise the sign qualities and Jupiter itself tends to magnify. So all that stuff about huge waves, big dreams, a flood of feeling, transcendental experiences is raised to the nth degree. It’s billowing sails, high seas, a billion stars glittering on a midnight ocean. It’s beautiful and enormous and confounding and filled with the glory of heavenly hosts! I think you get the idea! There’s nothing wrong in any of this of course but the problem comes if the giant untethered balloon we are in starts to float away. Let’s be thankful that the sextile to Pluto in sensible, anchored Capricorn is still in play! Pluto will help to ...

The Astrology Of May 2022 – Jupiter Enters Aries

With the Eclipse Season in full swing, Jupiter’s triumphal ingress into Aries, and Mercury retrograde, May 2022 is a month to remember. May 2022 features one intense aspect after another. After a dreamy April, we will now hit full speed, and will hardly get the chance to catch our breath!  In April we had Jupiter conjunct Neptune and a Pisces stellium. In May, most planets shift into Aries and Taurus, the first signs of the zodiac. If April was a good time to dream of a new vision of the future, May is the time to take decisive action toward turning these visions into realities.  Two past experiences popped to mind when I looked at the astrology of May 2022. One is from an electronic alarm clock my mother gave me when I left my hometown to go to university. Like most people, I hate a...

Jupiter in Aries 2022 – 2023

Jupiter enters Aries on May 11, 2022 and will remain in this sign until October 28, 2022. After revisiting Pisces for around six weeks, Jupiter will return to Aries on December 20, 2022 and complete its mission there on May 16, 2023. Jupiter is the biggest planet in our solar system and the greatest of the Roman Gods. As a planet, there are suggestions that Jupiter’s sheer size protects our planet from asteroids as they either crash into Jupiter first or its gravity draws them off course. As Sky God, Jupiter sees all, knows all and can rain down blessings (or judgements!) as he sees fit. Known as the Great Benefic, where Jupiter moves in the chart shows where we have opportunities for growth and development. This is where lucky breaks can be found, abundance, fortune. Focusing on the house...

Solar Eclipse in Taurus April 2022

The New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Taurus takes place on April 30, 2022 at 21:28 (BST). The Moon and Sun will be at 10Tau28. There is a proliferation of planetary activity in the signs Taurus and Pisces. Our hands are in the mud, moulding and shaping clay. What is your vision? What is the shape of the pot that will be fired by the blaze of your spirit? The Sabian symbol of this lunation is ‘A Woman Watering Flowers In Her Garden’. This symbol speaks of taking care of the planet and ensuring that we spend time in the natural world. Whether it’s your garden or the park or the woodlands,  time in nature heals and rejuvenates. This symbol also speaks of the simplicity of life. When we plant things in the ground – symbolically or literally – if we plant seeds in the rig...

Weekly Astrology Forecast April 25 – May 1, 2022

Excerpt from Patreon post – The greatest help though comes from Venus’s conjunction to Neptune, also on April 27. In fact, on this date, we have a quadruple conjunction as the Moon is now in Pisces and Venus is now in orb of a conjunction to Jupiter too (perfecting later this week). Ripples are everywhere – psychic, emotional. We’re waving, or drowning, riding high on love, doped up, drunk, sitting in a pool of our own tears like Alice in Wonderland. Venus conjunct Neptune is lost to love – positively, or negatively! This is the kind of love that makes movies and inspires songs. The love that we long for, unrequited love that first takes us up into a beautiful fantasy land then washes us away when it all comes to nothing. Venus conjunct Neptune is the impossible dream, the miracles t...

Weekly Astrology Forecast April 18 – 24, 2022

Excerpt from Patreon – The picture begins to calm on April 20 when we enter Taurus season. After the frantic pace of Aries, this is a welcome movement that gives us time to gather our thoughts and enjoy what we have in the present. Security is the watch word of Taurus so we may feel more focused on practical issues of survival now – ensuring bills are paid and food is on the table. But in this uncomplicated sign, we enjoy simple pleasures – a nice meal with a loved one, an afternoon crafting, pottering around in the garden – or indeed pottery! Where we may have been fighting our circumstances or frustrated with the previous transit through Aries, now we are much more content to wait it out. Taurus has endless patience. We just have to watch any tendency towards resistance to change a...
