The May 18th Full Moon in Astrology – Money, Money, Money!
The Full Moon on Saturday May 18th falls with the Sun at 27 Taurus and Moon at 27 Scorpio, the two finance signs. These rule charity, the banks, the sharemarkets, cryptocurrency, money laundering and on a simple note, shopping.
A Full Moon is always mixed feelings. An inner conflict. Being pulled in two directions. The Sun is opposite the Moon. They are coming from completely different angles. Give yourself more time and space on Saturday 18th May. You and others will need it.
Are you a Premium Member? Check your full chart now for factors at 27 Taurus or Scorpio. If you have them please don’t enter into financial, property, business, shopping, selling or charity decisions of a major nature that weekend. Why? It’s too much of a stretch. The choices you make when either you feel inner conflict, or are dealing with polar opposites, are very hard work, long-term. This is old-fashioned astrology advice. And astrology has been with us for over 2000 years and counting.
There is more to this pattern than just the Full Moon, though. The Full Moon also falls on the same wild weekend as an unusual link between Venus, the planet which rules Taurus, and Uranus, a symbol of shock. Radical change. Revolution.
We have not seen this pattern in over 80 years. Look at the headlines this weekend and the headlines in your own life and ask yourself ‘How am I not free when it comes to my house, my money, my apartment?’ Spend some time asking.
Venus-Uranus in Taurus and You
Beyond the Full Moon across the money signs, Taurus and Scorpio, as we’ve seen, we also have Venus at 3 Taurus next to, or conjunct, Uranus at 3 Taurus on the same day. We associate this cycle with shock, electrical storms, revolution, freedom, release, relief, independence.
Uranus often shocks us into realising how tied up we were. How restricted, chained, confined or trapped. In Taurus this is about the banks and the government.
The lenders and the tax collectors. That is the big global message at these times (below) in these cities. It will repeat in 2020. This is just the first stage and you will be affected through a ripple effect, from very big waves on Wall Street and other sharemarkets.
Uranus in Taurus is neither good nor bad. It’s just the world turning upside-down. This is a new financial world order and it will take seven years, but make no mistake – Saturday 18th May and Sunday 19th May is a big leap into it.
If you are a Premium Member, and have factors at 3 Taurus or 3 Scorpio, your mortgage, superannuation/pension, shares, tax return, rent, allowance, business and the rest will be specifically in the frame. Check your chart now. Ask yourself who/what keeps you stuck, or keeps you small, or restricted. That’s not going to last. Please look up the Second House (Taurus) or Eighth House (Scorpio) on Search and also Uranus himself, and in your Premium Member ebooks too, so you can see more.

The Asteroids in Astrology May 18th, 19th
In modern astrology we use the whole family tree of symbols, so the planets the Romans passed on, starting with Mercury, Jupiter and the rest – but the asteroids and other heavenly bodies which are related to them.
This weekend of the Full Moon is full of lightning bolts. The weekend newspapers in Great Britain are usually a source of scoops. This will be the ‘scoop to end all scoops’ regarding tax and charity and it would not be a scoop unless famous people were involved.
What else is going on very close to the time of the Full Moon and the Venus-Uranus conjunction?
The Secret of Minerva, Daughter of Jupiter
Mercury at 24 Taurus is conjunct Minerva at 24 Taurus. This is a fantastic piece of news from a wise woman. Perhaps, a crucial media message which involves a ‘Minerva’ figure. If you know Harry Potter you’ll know I am talking about a headmistress type. In Taurus, this is about the economy, taxation or other big financial issues.
The other key here is Mercury at 24 Taurus conjunct Aesculapia at 24 Taurus. Mercury is very much about the news, the paperwork, the message – in Taurus again, this is about our global finances and your own wallet or purse.
Aesculapia is a 2000+ year old symbol of resurrection. Revival. Rebirth. Just when you thought something or someone was over, there is a major haul-back from the brink.
Taurus the bull is associated with gold bullion and bull markets. A quick and easy way to think about Taurus is Her Majesty the Queen. She is a Sun Taurus and her portrait is on the coins and notes in so many countries around the world.
Watch the way cryptocurrency moves across this weekend as Uranus rules new inventions, powered by electricity – and in Taurus – that is most certainly Bitcoin, Lightning, Ripple and so on.
I mention blockchain as a Taurus concern because as soon as this new cycle began, it came into the mainstream via the banks. Last May 2018 we saw two major Uranus in Taurus events. Blockchain at HSBC and Her Majesty the Queen introducing the Magnitsky Amendment to the Money Laundering Act in the United Kingdom. History may prove it was her most powerful and important political decision. We’ll see.
Watch Money Laundering
Panama Papers, Paradise Papers, Next?
We are looking at the next big scandal for the rich and famous, following the Panama Papers and Paradise Papers in previous years.
What we have here is a perfect storm. Julian Assange with a USB stick may be part of it. Who knows? I sent a Twitter message to his mother asking for a confirmation of his birth time but she did not reply.
Money laundering has been said to be behind the stupid-expensive prices of apartments in London and even places like Melbourne, where I spend a bit of time. Hobart, Tasmania, Australia too. Is that correct? We will soon see, as Uranus in Taurus is about the old global system coming down. If the old system has been geared around tax-avoidance, even if it is legal, but especially if it is dirty – then we are going to see the laundromat blow in stages and property prices will be affected, don’t you think? Duck, here comes the Omo. It will be Fab!
Mountains Shake, Goats Come Down
We also have something we have not seen in over 240 years. Pluto, Saturn and the South Node lining up in Capricorn, the sign which rules the goats who climb to the top of the system, or High Society, or the establishment.
Some of them do anything to get up there. Some of them do anything to stay up there, too. Astrology says, karma from the years 2000 and 1981 is coming for goats who broke the law of humanity to get there. You might call it the law of humankind. Anyone who has not been kind to his or her fellow human beings, or worse – is not going to remain rich and famous, or even just rich – after January 2020. May 18th shakes the mountain.
The interesting thing about this is karma. The North Node and South Node rule karma. In India, where I am writing this now, these Nodes are called Rahu and Ketu.
What we see on this Full Moon is the start of karma which was put in motion as far back as 1981 for some. And if you need to pay your dues to your fellow human beings, then wheels turn. The Indians would say it was unavoidable, actually.
The Australian Election
Watch Malcolm Turnbull and Julie Bishop in particular as Australia votes.
He could easily end up with a role alongside Bill Shorten in a new Australian government. The bull turns. Turnbull. Uranus is the shock, the world turning upside-down: Taurus is literally ‘bull.’ Astrology is a peculiar thing and I have no idea about any verified data for Mr. Turnbull, but you’d have to say as a Sun Scorpio, that Full Moon is going to be dramatic for him. Will the bull turn? That would certainly turn the Australian share markets on Monday!
My old prediction about Julie Bishop from April 11, 2019 is here:
“Women will come front-and-centre in Canberra by 2019. So will Julie be back? To lead? Stranger things have happened! This was a prediction made way back on 17th July 2017, so over a year before the Turnbull-Dutton-Bishop-Morrison coup. Between 2017-2019 Australia could easily see another woman rise to become leader of one of the two main political parties and perhaps even the nation, making history a second time. Julie Bishop?”
Will Julie be accepted back into a new Liberal party if Scott Morrison loses? As next leader? Seriously, astrology fans, it’s that kind of weekend.
How Your Sign is Affected
The butterfly wing flaps in New York and Canberra. The world receives the breeze. The new currents catch you, too. They get you where you live. This may not be directly about your country’s finances, or global finances. It may be about your child! Yet, the breeze sweeps you along in the path of radical change, starting now and good for the next seven years or so. Best bet? Surf on the breeze. Accept what astrologer Patric Walker used to call ‘the winds of change.’ Do not resist.

Is Donald Using Astrology?
Watch Trump on Twitter on Saturday 18th May at 5.11pm, New York and Washington time. I would also watch his Twitter activity at the time of the Venus-Uranus conjunction
I do not believe he knows how to cast horoscopes. He can barely fold an umbrella, as we’ve seen.
Yet, astrology was extremely fashionable in New York financial circles in the 1980s and it may be that Trump or someone in his circle, is following his predecessor President Ronald Reagan and using an astrologer to time his Wall Street-affecting Twitter messages (which immediately affect shares).
*A Full Moon is always a big ask. Give yourself and others a ton of time and space this weekend. Find out more about the Full Moon here in this extract from 2020 Astrology: Your Five-Year Horoscope Guide.
