The Astrological Edge for May 2015

The pressure associated with Uranus and Pluto eases this month, as these two planets are at last beginning to separate from the square they having been making to each other! This will give us a break from the intensity that has been permeating the atmosphere since last November. Meanwhile, Jupiter traveling direct in Leo lends a burst of happy, creative, confident energy. Add to that the lightheartedness of planets passing through Gemini (Mercury there all month, Mars entering Gemini on the 11th, followed by the Sun on the 21st, and Venus there until the 6th) and a noticeable easing up of the pressures of the last three months is in store.

Lingering tensions can still invoke global and personal change; however, the messages and actions being carried out will likely have a more moderate feel than what we have seen over the past few months. It will be important to use the available energies to think strategically and to work with others to make the most of this potentially productive month.

Although pressure is easing, the Uranus-Pluto square will continue to be in effect. With Pluto retrograde (April 16 to September 25) and pulling away from the exact square to Uranus, we’ll feel a bit of relief from the high-pressure energy that Pluto can generate, but there will still be a global and personal call to change. The difference now is that we’ll have a chance to review the progress we have made so far and to think about our next action steps. This is therefore an excellent month to look at what you’d like to release from your life in order to make room for growth.

Change is occurring “behind the scenes.” Some of the more visible signs of turmoil, such as political uprisings and public demonstrations, are likely to decrease, but the drive to investigate and gather the information necessary to find the truth will persist. On a personal level, you can more easily access secrets you may have kept hidden from yourself and others. It can be a powerful time for therapy or counseling, as you’ll be able to push past fears or blind spots and address the root causes of any issues facing you.

Jupiter continues to be direct this month (April 8, 2015, to January 7, 2016). In Leo, Jupiter adds an uplifting energy that encourages the expression of love. People are more likely to be in tune with their heart. As a result, compassion and generosity can be on the increase. Jupiter, drawing closer to a trine to Uranus (exact next month on the 22nd), lends a peaceful and generous energy to the Uranus-Pluto square. This will . . . . . READ THE FULL COLUMN!

The NEW MOON each month is a POWER DAY, a day favorable for new beginnings. Things wished for on the day of the New Moon, if written down on paper, take root and begin coming true through the process of natural unfoldment. This is the day to take pen in hand and compile a written wish list (10 wishes maximum) of things you would like to have happen in your life.

Because this month’s New Moon occurs in TAURUS, you may want to include wishes on your list concerning the following categories that are associated with that sign: money, comfort, appreciation, sensual enjoyment, material possessions, loyalty, tenacity, stubbornness.

Sample wishes:
“I want all non-constructive stubbornness totally lifted from me”
“I want lots of money in a happy way!”
“I want all fears of poverty totally lifted from me”
“I want to successfully realize my goals by taking one step at a time, not rushing to the next step until the step in front of me has been completed”
“I want to easily find myself consciously, consistently appreciating the abundance of life and mother nature”.

For exact best times for wishing, log in here and select the “New Moon Power Days” located under the tab “NEW MOON” on the white, navigation bar, three days prior to February’s New Moon.

SPECIAL FEATURE: All members automatically receive the exact best times for wishing in their inboxes each and every month.
