TAKE IT EASY IN MAY.
Your May motto is "NOT YET."
This goes until 5/21, but if you really want to do it right, keep it up until 5/26, and use caution around June 5th.
Yes, we've just exited the eclipse portal. Yes, Mercury stations direct 5/14. Yes, Jupiter lands in Taurus 5/16.
These are all forward moving, good things.
And, yes, Mars and Venus are about to land in Leo (5/20 and 6/5, respectively), really getting the big Leo "Renaissance" vibes of this summer and fall going.
But not so fast, because there's just one catch, and it's Pluto retrograde sitting at 0° Aquarius until 6/11 when it reenters Capricorn, serving as "gatekeeper" for Jupiter into Taurus, and Mars and Venus into Leo, which all take place before 6/11.
Leo, Taurus, and Aquarius are all fixed signs - all at 180°/90° angles from each other. Scorpio, where the south node and the 5/5 full moon eclipse occurred, is the fourth fixed sign.
It's like a four-way stop in the sky - an intersection. Pluto is already camped out at one of the stop signs - at 0° Aquarius - and as Jupiter lands at 0° Taurus and Mars lands at 0° Leo, we'll have planets at 3 out of the 4 positions, creating an energetic impasse requiring us to grow in order to overcome the challenge that presents in our lives.
As we move through May, Pluto and the south node will be tangling with Jupiter entering Taurus 5/16, Mars entering Leo 5/20, and then Venus entering Leo 6/5.
Adding to the congestion, Mars entering Leo will also have its own stand-off with Jupiter freshly into Taurus (which is the part that lingers til the 26th).
Luckily all this will have subsided by the time Venus lands in Leo 6/5, leaving us just to deal with Our Lady of Love & Money being opposed by Pluto at the gates of Leo while Pluto still applies that steady pressure by T-square to the north node of future and south node of past (a transformative aspect actually on early March all the way through early December this year).
Think of it this way - THE RIDE (Jupiter in Taurus for an entire year and Mars blasting through Leo right in front of Venus on extended stay there til October) is going to be a good one, but the take off is a little bumpy.
It's not like you aren't prepared for this. And it's a necessary step on the journey, helping you truly be ready for what we'll be doing this summer/fall.
You already know the energy, because in late March and late April, when the moon arrived each month at 0° Leo, it was opposed by Pluto.
I've written more about this on the blog along with noting the dates to check in your calendar to clock the theme in your life - check it out here.
