Angelic Astrology – May 2018
The highlight this month is Uranus, the planet of rebellion and freedom energies, moving into the fixed sign of Taurus. Uranus spends 7 years in each sign of the zodiac so the fact that it is leaving the sign of Aries and moving into the sign of The Bull is a big deal. We will look more closely at this transitional energy a little later in the article, but for now, let us start by looking at the energetic vibration for May based on numerology.
The Universal Month Vibration for May is a 16/7. The lower vibration of the number 7 suggests that this will be a month that is both emotional and mental. It may be a time where we have doubts and anxieties about what is occurring around us. This number has a reclusive feeling to it so we may pull back our involvement in the outer world somewhat (or at least we would like to) and feel a desire to have more alone time. There can be some self-critical or self-judgmental tendencies with this vibration so it will be beneficial to involve ourselves in some self-care, self-love, and/or self-healing. The number 7 is also a spiritual number so involving ourselves in spiritual practices such as meditation and prayer would be beneficial. It is a good time to do research, study, or take classes and learn something new.
The double-digit 16 is a karmic number in numerology. It speaks of huge changes that occur in the environment around us that bring about a transformation in our lives and, perhaps, within ourselves. It is a death & rebirth process for the ego. With this vibration, it seems that circumstances beyond our control tear down the life we have built for ourselves, suddenly and unexpectedly.
The 16th major arcana in the tarot is The Tower. In the traditional tarot, the imagery is that of a tower or tall fortress that has been hit by lightning. The structure is on fire and people are jumping or falling from it. In the book, “Essence of the Tarot” by Megan Skinner she writes about The Tower as a card that “represents a death, not in the physical sense, but in endings, extreme change, and ultimately transformation and rebirth.” This is about an extreme shift in our outer reality and the structures that we, as an individual or as a collective, have created for ourselves. We must embrace the endings so that we can rebirth a new and better way for ourselves and for humanity.
The first astrological energy of significance this month is Mercury, the Messenger, challenging Pluto, planet of transformation and change, on May 7th, although we will feel this on the 6th as these two draw closer together. There can be power and control issues with communication and interaction with others, or mental frustration within ourselves at this time.
A few days later, on May 12th and 13th, Mercury moves forward in the sign of Aries to challenge Mars, God of War, in Capricorn and then to connect with Uranus, planet that rules sudden and unexpected events, in the last degree of this sign of the Ram. On this same day, the 13th, Mercury will then move into practical and grounded Taurus, ruler of money, personal resources, values, and self-worth.
We have a New Moon at 24 degrees Taurus on May 15th. This lunation is creating a positive connection to Pluto and Mars, both in Capricorn. There may be some powerful changes occurring with our finances and other resources, and with what we value within ourselves or within our lives.
On the same day as the New Moon, we have Uranus, the Great Awakener, moving into Earth sign Taurus. This is, quite easily, the most important astrological energy of the month! As stated earlier, the planet Uranus stays in a sign for approximately 7 years. So, Uranus will be in this 2nd sign of the zodiac, which rules money, finances, and the Earth’s resources until April 2026, with the exception of a short-lived return to Aries from November 2018 until March 2019. When a planet first enters, or is just exiting, a sign there is an intensification of the energies displayed by that planet in that sign. Here we may see something suddenly occurring with certain financial institutions on the planet, or on a monetary level within our own lives. We may also experience some sudden and unexpected Earth changes. You never know what you are going to experience with Uranus so these changes may be beneficial, or appear to be challenging. On a collective level, we may see the next seven years filled with many changes regarding our planetary and monetary resources.
We have another planet changing signs on May 16th. Mars, the Warrior, is moving into Air sign Aquarius where he will be until November 2018 with a short return to Capricorn in August and September. This, in and of itself, is very significant as Mars will be challenging Uranus on the very same day it moves into this new domain. Mars is an activator of energy, and with eccentric Uranus newly in the sign of Taurus, this will bring some sudden and unexpected situations. What that may be is anybody’s guess. It could be personal or global, or both. One thing for sure is that this time period will not go unnoticed.
Two more planets will change signs on May 19th and 20th. Venus, ruler of love and money, will move into sensitive Water sign Cancer on the 19th where she will stay until June of this year. This will intensify the Divine Feminine energies which are very much needed. There will be a focus on home, family, and women’s issues at this time. The next day the Sun moves into Gemini as it always does this time of the year. It will shine its Light upon thoughts, ideas, and communications for the next month.
On May 25th Jupiter, ruler of expansion and our belief systems, which is still retrograde in Scorpio, will connect with Neptune, planet of the spiritual realm and things that are unseen, in Pisces. This will be a time where we need to focus on self-empowerment through changing our belief systems. It is a time where we need to have faith and trust in a Higher Power that is leading and guiding us.
We have a Full Moon at 8 degrees Sagittarius on May 29th and Mercury, planet of the mind, moving into Gemini on the same day. The North Node, a Destiny Point which signifies the direction that we are to be moving in, is making a positive connection to this lunation, and Mars, planet of energy and action is creating a sextile aspect which is an aspect of opportunity. These are very beneficial connections to this Full Moon in the sign of the Archer, a sign that rules our belief systems and our expanded vision of what we desire to create. With Mercury now moving into Gemini it will bring forth many new ideas and thoughts to utilize in the process of creation and manifestation on our journey forward!
