May’s astrology after the torrential power storms of April’s skies. Yup, that’s where we are. Right now the astrological template makes us feel as if we’re eating a strawberry ice cream cone while watching a basket of cuddly kittens play with a spool of ribbon. The planets are sending out homing beacons this month, but before I get anymore lost in metaphoric imagery lets take a look-see at this month’s astrological energy trends.
Venus enters Aires on May 2nd. That’s a giddy, love at first sight sort of energy. While it’s easy to follow your heart during Venus’ cohabitation with the ram, there are still standards to be met. Earthy and lusty does not mean cheap and vulgar. Venus in Aires loves being in love whether it’s the love for a newly discovered fine wine, an investment opportunity or potential soul-mate. Look for your relationships to bloom between now and May 20th. Which leads us directly into the big story for the month – Mars turning direct.

The Cardinal Cross has been reduce to a T-Square this month. That’s still a challenge, but comparatively to April’s Grand Cross, this will be a breeze. Mercury enters Gemini on May 7th and Jupiter trines Chiron on May 14th. Trines are wonderful aspects that assist our personal growth. Jupiter is a planet of expansion (Jupiter in Cancer equals terrific) and Chiron carries healing energy. Where Pluto Retrograde may have pulled off the bandage from old traumas, Chiron trine Jupiter delivers true healing medicine and your life will take on a fresh and healthier glow. Continue to bask.
We also have a Full Moon in Scorpio later this month,
