Aries: May 2017
FRIENDS, GROUPS AND FLASHBACKS TO THE PAST
Starting on 9th May, Aries, you begin a flashback and rewind cycle with friends and groups. This may be a professional association, or an ensemble cast. The friends may be new or old. As 1999 and 2000 were such fascinating and unusual years, perhaps that is where the replays will come from – depending on your age. There is also past life karma here, so if you have a band from your past coming back to you now, perhaps you and the other players have reincarnated to pursue old debts or credits, with each other. Another example would be schoolfriends, returning (or just returning in importance). Aries, you will notice a distinct feeling of ‘been there, done that, seen it all before’ with your friends, groups and acquaintances. It won’t be until November 2018 that you can say you’ve closed the book on this. There really is nothing new under the sun.
MONEY, PROPERTY, BUSINESS, POSSESSIONS, CHARITY
The odd behaviour of horoscope factors in Taurus since February has resulted in one major financial, property, business or ownership matter being sidelined or even forgotten. It is time for the wheel to turn, however, and the Full Moon period near the 9th, 10th, 11th will help you look at the best way forward. Unfinished paperwork, delayed negotiations, people absent on leave or other complications are typical of this cycle. While one matter has been left hovering, perhaps for months, it is also true that something very new – and rather exciting – is in front of you. To date you have been dealing with hassles involving the worldwide web, paperwork, the post or communication disconnect – yet you may also have a feeling this is leading you somewhere special, in terms of the ultimate financial, business, charity or property outcome. This is correct, as you will see from May next year. You are breaking new ground, inventing and innovating from that point forward so your current hunch to pursue ‘My Way’ is right. Be it Vicious or Sinatra, your way is the most interesting. Aries, just remember it’s going to take a lot of chopping, changing and rewriting of the game plan to get to the first stage of this, but by June and July it’s on…
FORMER, CURRENT AND POTENTIAL PARTNERS
We only see Jupiter (win-win solutions, big outcomes, happy endings) arrive in your zone of partnership like this, every 12 years. The quality of the relationship you share with your former, current or potential partner is like a cocktail. You have the recipe or ingredients in raw form – you just need the time, space and opportunity to mix this in a major way! You two may be seeking bigger things together (a stronger cocktail recipe) or if things are rocky, you may be looking for a way to call an end – and find something new. No matter if this is greater cohesion between you, or separate paths, Jupiter is a great accelerator of growth, so whatever you planted or seeded earlier, can now begin to blossom for you. By October, Aries, you could be in a new relationship – or building happily on an existing partnership. If you only want a solution, remedy or way out – that is also possible, with far less angst than you might normally expect. The exact date of the Jupiter-Neptune quincunx this month is Wednesday 17th May, but you may see the door open just before or after. As always, if your priority is not a sexual partnership, but a work one – the action you see unfolding now is about that. If you are in the minority of Aries people whose priority is a fight, contest or battle – there is a way out or through. This will replace what would otherwise be happening with a former, current or potential partner as the Seventh House (where we find fortunate Jupiter) is about your opponent as well as your opposite number in life.
URANUS TRINE SATURN
Uranus in Aries, your own zodiac sign, trines Saturn on 19th May. This is about something you know very well, based on the last 6 or 7 years, and that’s a ‘Me’ revolution. By this stage of the game, you are well aware that every time you do something wildly new, different or original – it excites others as much as it excites you. In this case, as always, you are the experiment. It’s an intensely personal process, because your own name, face, wardrobe, shape, style, profile and aura is the big experiment that leads to the most excitement. What the trine from Saturn suggests is that you need to get real, and get serious, about yourself. This is a long, long revolution but what goes down around 19th May suggests you are not mixing things up for the sake of it, any more. There is a need, here, to make it all rather more solid than that and ground the grand experiment in reality, and maybe your own history too. This isn’t ego nor narcissism; you are the product and you need to step back from yourself and handle ‘Me’ like a pro as May rolls on. Premium Member? Continue.

Taurus: May 2017
YOUR MISSION, AMBITION AND POSITION
This is a ‘Back to the Future’ moment for you, Taurus, in regards to your career, unpaid work, university degree or full-time parenting. Starting on 9th May and running until 6th November 2018 you will experience karma – and depending on your age, it may date from your working life in 1999, 2000. This is about picking up rewards and harvests from what you planted then – but also going over old ground so you can finish things off, once and for all. Don’t be surprised if there are echoes of the past, with your job or degree – but there may also be literal returns as old faces or tasks return. Even if you were at school in those years, something about the subjects that were central then, or even the teachers, might now return. The True South Node enters Aquarius on 9th May, joining the powerful asteroids Ops, Diana and Aesculapius (also in Aquarius) this month. Quite apart from 1999, 2000 (when Neptune and Uranus were in Aquarius too) there are so many other episodes, acts and players in your chosen area of expertise – set to return. The point of all this flashbackery? Over the next couple of years, you’ll experience so much déjà vu that you will have nothing else to do, except develop a measured and deep response to the sheer predictability of it all. In other words, you get to work on yourself. Further ahead, into the far, far future, the massive change in your position or ambitions from the entry of Pluto into Aquarius from around 2025 will owe a great deal to what began, in the smallest way, in May 2017! For now, though, just expect a stuck-record feeling with career, paid work, full-time parenting or unpaid work as a very old track is played one more time.
TITLE, ROLE, PROFILE, REPUTATION, IDENTITY
The Full Moon across 9th, 10th, 11th May will bring everything to a head with all these ongoing issues about who you are, how others see you, what your name or face means online – and the rest. In fact, there will be a replay or rewind after Tuesday 16th May, when you realise that April was just a dress rehearsal for those image issues – and some of them have been lingering since February. It won’t be until 21st May that you know the full and final story about your name, face, profile and so on. Welcome to Mercury Retrograde Shadow! There is a reason for all this general stop-start progress and the kerfuffle that has occurred to date. The old is giving way to the very, very new – about you, you, you. The fact it’s all taking so long is actually a gift, because it buys you time to go deeply into what or who is motivating you, when it comes to matters of profile or appearance. You’re going to need that in about one year from now when the biggest ‘me’ changes of your life start rolling. Deep breath. It really is all about you, but you have time to think, if only because of the stop-start nature of 2017, to date!
LIFESTYLE, WORKLOAD, BODY, ROUTINE
Wednesday 17th May will help a lot (allow 24 hours either side) with your lifestyle, workload, body and daily routine. In astrology we don’t separate them; everything is connected -from the food you eat, to the way you work. It operates the other way too, Taurus; your job location or situation can affect what you eat, and thus how you perform! All kinds of interesting possibilities will open up for you like a flower, in the middle of May. It is happening at the same time as a fascinating development involving your friends or the group. It’s a way out, basically – and an escape. Taurus, you won’t see this again for 12 years, so jump on it. There are 24 hours in each day and you get to create each 8-hour slot in an intriguing new way, now – if you say yes to a solution or offer. Watch things evolve with your social media, social life, group commitment or old friend at the same time. Very close to 17th May there are two epic stories taking off.
We have a perfect trine between Uranus and Saturn, this month. It takes place on Friday 19th May. Freedom is enthralling, then. In fact you may be so used to the freedom trail, after 6-7 years of experimenting, that you don’t even realise just how liberated you have actually become. Others don’t really see, know or understand. It’s an unfathomable thing. You’re acting alone, or hiding away, or covering things up. You’re operating behind the scenes, or concealing classified information – or pursuing the occult! From this, though, comes a familiar feeling of excitement, as you realise that breaking new ground, doing it your way -innovating, experimenting and exploring - is the only way forward. It may even be for an audience of one – yourself – but with or without a confidante, what happens near 19th May is your next big breakthrough.

Gemini: May 2017
TRAVEL AND TRAVEL IN THE MIND
Gemini, this new cycle in your life is strangely old and familiar. It’s about travel, or travel in the mind. Another way to describe this for you? Trips and head trips. All this exploration is also bringing back the past, as from 9th May until 6th November 2018 you will experience karma you’ve not seen in years - as the True South Node enters Aquarius, joining Ops, Diana and Aesculapius (also in Aquarius) this month. Aesculapius is a potent asteroid and can resurrect or revive any project, situation or plan. It can also bring people and situations back from the brink. With the worldwide web, academia, education, publishing, travel, foreign people and places – or your beliefs – you are going to see everything old become new again, Gemini. There may be a literal repeat of particular people, journeys, places or organisations. Alternatively, there may be a symbolic or thematic repetition. You’re going to get a great deal out of this.
WHAT LIES BENEATH OR BEHIND
What lies beneath or behind? What are you covering up, or doing behind the scenes? It’s been an epic, ongoing story since February with no clear resolution or closure – yet it will come, Gemini. The Full Moon across 9th, 10th, 11th May will lay everything on the line. Your ruler Mercury has also been up to his usual tricks, so there will be a replay or rewind from Tuesday 16th May, when you realise that April was just a dress rehearsal and the developments in February and March were never going to take a direct course. It won’t be until 21st May that you know the full and final story with what lies beneath, behind the scenes, under the radar or deeply below the surface. This is Twelfth House stuff, so we associate it with the FBI, CIA and Wikileaks. It’s also associated with the Occult, psychology and dreams. I hope you get the picture! Nobody else really knows, sees, understands or fathoms this part of your personality, or your world. Sometimes this cycle can be really basic, so it’s about covering up secrets from other people, for whatever reason. May will allow you to put things in order and in final place. The next big change (and perhaps you can see this now) will be May 2018 when the revolution begins. For now, though, just focus on tying up loose ends, as May closes.
YOUNG PEOPLE, LOVERS, COURTSHIP, CHILDREN
What opens up, or is offered to you, near Wednesday 17th May is special. You may be speaking to a generation born 20 years after you. Perhaps this is about your sons or goddaughters. Maybe your concern is with a lover. We also include younger in-laws here; the Fifth House covers all those who come after you (your heirs), as well as your royal bedchamber and courtships. If you are looking for a solution, this is a solution – across 16th, 17th, 18th May. Gemini, it is also true that you may just want to make things bigger and better, so you can build and grow as a parent, or as a lover – and that is also possible. It really depends how much groundwork you did since September last year with the younger generation, or your fine romance. A parallel development at the same time, Gemini, is a very interesting career, unpaid work, university or full-time parenting phase. This is best described as ‘real but not real.’ In other words it’s a holiday from reality. If you can keep it in a separate and special space from the rest of your life, without letting it spill over everywhere, it should be quite an entrancing new option. So – two quite important stories, both taking off near 17th May. Watch out for them.
FRIENDS AND GROUPS
Uranus, the planet of freedom trines Saturn on Friday 19th May. Uranus has been a companion to you for about half-a-dozen years, utterly changing your social life, friendships and groups. You’ve had life-changing experiences, over that period, with people power which has radically changed your view of yourself, as well as your corner of the world. You have also seen nothing short of a revolution involving one or more old friends. Now, Gemini, the next wave comes. Very close to 19th May you will see both the wave and the surfboard at your hand. Take it and ride this out – it will take you in amazing new directions. The trine to Saturn suggests to me that this is not just a temporary trip or adventure. It’s going to teach you how to take elements of what is so exciting, experimental or new - and ground this, in some lasting and profound way. In other words, you have to take what is going down with the friend or group seriously, because seriousness is actually what the situation is calling for. This isn’t temporary, unless you want it to be. Premium Member? Continue.

Cancer: May 2017
YOUR MONEY, BUSINESS INTERESTS, HOME, CHARITY
You are ruled by the Moon, Cancer, as you probably know, so when the Moon’s Nodes change zodiac signs, it’s more important for you than others. In fact, from 9th May until 6th November 2018 you will be in the same financial position, or an uncannily similar one, to 1999 or 2000. If you’re too young to have lived through that, then perhaps the replay will be less important, but more recent – a few months ago, rather than over ten years ago. In any case, Cancer, when it comes to everything you own, earn or owe - May 2017 is a major flashback. You are owed karmic rewards. You may also owe something, to others. Perhaps you just need to work on yourself, developing soul qualities that money cannot purchase, as the repetition of what goes on, forces you to change your response, because you cannot change what is actually cycling through your life... Cancer, these are the facts. The True South Node enters Aquarius on 9th May, joining the powerful asteroids Ops, Diana and Aesculapius (also in Aquarius) this month. That last one is interesting because it represents impossible survival and unlikely resurrection or revival. Something you assumed was over, may come back. It could be a superannuation/pension fund you had lost. Maybe it’s a forgotten bank account. The possibilities are endless. It will be personal to you. Cancer, the trick to the next couple of years is realising that while the financial, business or property stuck record will certainly keep you in one place, the fact that the Song Remains the Same (thank you Led Zeppelin) should not prevent you from changing your angle on the inside. In other words, earnestly developing tolerance, patience, good humour, and a willingness to learn, every time the same damn thing happens – is something you can’t buy.
FRIENDS AND GROUPS
I’ve mentioned you are ruled by the Moon and so the lunar cycle affects you more, Cancer. The Full Moon across 9th, 10th, 11th May (the world catches up with itself across all times zones, then) will yank you back to friends and groups, as a central issue. In fact, as you will see in May, across a four-month period (since February) you have been put through a kind of weird pinball machine, where the ball got stuck, or the plug was pulled out of the wall, only to restart the machine every time. This issue about old and new friends, and clubs/groups/teams/communities is more important than first appears. In fact, there will be a replay or rewind from Tuesday 16th May and it won’t be until 21st May that you know the full and final story. This is the end of Mercury Retrograde Shadow as you see the wheels go around one final time, either with your friend or the club/team/society and so on. Typical examples of this cycle include poor communication, technical difficulties with your telephone or the internet – and general muddle. There is method to the universe’s madness, though, because the revolution in your social life, friendships or group commitments from May 2018 is so massive, and lasts so long (about seven years) that you almost need enforced delays and stop-start progress now - so that your soul has time to process the enormity of what is about to happen. Maybe some small part of you senses this. It’s a game-changer. And it’s being set up now, in the smallest way. Can you see that?
HOUSE, TOWN, COUNTRY, FLAT, FAMILY, FLATMATE
Wednesday 17th May sees Jupiter quincunx Neptune. Now, this is really interesting, because there a couple of stories going on for you Cancer, and both of them are big. One is about your house, town, country, flat, family, flatmate, household, land or apartment. What you are going to experience is rather like that famous Yoko Ono exhibition when John Lennon climbed up a ladder and saw the magic word YES in front of him. The universe is saying ‘Yes, yes, yes’ around this time, so the middle of the merry month of May will be quite marvellous. Perhaps you need to borrow a relative’s holiday home. Maybe you want to renovate your apartment. Planning permission for your private jetty, perhaps? The truth is, you receive on whatever level you gave, or put energy into, since September last year. Cancer, the other fascinating thing about 17th May-ish, is the potential with travel, emigration, foreigners, export, publishing, education or your beliefs. It’s the ultimate escape from reality. It’s a holiday from all-too-real. Good!
SUCCESS IS FREEDOM – FREEDOM IS SUCCESS
We have a stunning trine between Uranus and Saturn on Friday 19th May which will help you ground your experiment with success – and make it real. I realise that your entire life since 2011 has been one long, adventurous experiment after another. That is why success means freedom, these days and freedom means success. You’ve become used to it, basically, because at some point you decided that innovating and inventing was more important than doing it the old way. You may think you’ve done it all, in your chosen field, Cancer - but you haven’t. That probably excites you, secretly, and your instinct is right. You are still in the game when it comes to inventing, innovating and doing it your way. In fact, your chosen field, special subject area, profession or calling in life (full-time parenthood or career highs) is ripe for something new. What is really interesting about the trine is that it grounds everything. It makes it more serious, more compelling and perhaps more demanding – this is not another fleeting mad experiment! Yet, if you get to write something in stone, when it so clearly sets you and other people free, within a given area of expertise – then why not? Premium Member? Continue.
Leo: May 2017
FORMER, CURRENT AND POTENTIAL PARTNERS
Leo, from 9th May until 6th November 2018 you will experience karma from many years ago, as well as previous lifetimes, with your partner. This applies to former or potential partners, too. The True South Node enters your opposite sign of Aquarius on 9th May, joining the crucial asteroids Ops, Diana and Aesculapius (also in Aquarius) this month. You two people will experience replays and flashbacks, so your sense of déjà vu is not wrong – this really did happen before! The whole idea of this long-running cycle is to get you to become more philosophical, accepting, tolerant and good-humoured. In other words, when nothing changes – and you’ve seen it all before anyway – you can only work on your attitude. It is the effort you put into a very particular way of seeing him (or her) that will reward you the most. Aesculapius is a powerful asteroid and can resurrect a relationship you assumed was over, or revive aspects of a partnership that were dying. It is also possible that you are going to see a thematic, or symbolic repetition. In other words, it’s a different person, but a similar story to what you saw before. A large number of Leo people who had particular stories with love, sex, marriage, divorce or separation going on I999, 2000 will see a replay of that. The record will rotate and the music will play again. And how long does this go on for? Months. Maybe as long as late 2018. Leo, if the fight, battle or contest matters more to you than love – it may be an enemy or rival who is at the heart of endless repetition, from May. As you have been there (and done that) you have the advantage of experience or past-life smarts! So – you know exactly what to do and what not to do. Again, there may be echoes of 1999 or 2000 here. If this is not literally the same person and situation, it will be thematically or symbolically the same!
POSITION, MISSION AND AMBITION
What a long and winding road you are on, with your career, Leo. This also applies to unpaid work, your university degree or a full-time parenting role. The Full Moon across 9th, 10th, 11th May will bring everything to a head. The Wheel of Fortune (the powerful little asteroid Fortuna) will also spin at that time, so that you realise sometimes you have to let blind fate take you around. This rather giddy feeling is also there because communication, news, paperwork, e-mails and the rest have not exactly been straightforward. In fact, there will be a replay or rewind from Tuesday 16th May, when you realise that April was just a dress rehearsal. In fact, there may be unresolved contracts, appointments, reappointments and so on, dating all the way back to February! It won’t be until 21st May that you know the full and final story. Welcome to Mercury Retrograde Shadow! Fortunately if you read your horoscope regularly you will have known it was coming and have been ready to adapt and adjust all along. There is a higher purpose behind all this delay or uncertainty. You are going to see a massive career revolution (or a revolution affecting your other goals in life) in May 2018. Maybe you need a year just to think about it. A great deal of what changes so radically then, will have its roots in what began to change for you, across February-May. I am sure you know what I mean, in terms of your job, university degree, unpaid work or full-time parenting.
THE BIG PROJECT – THE BIG IDEA
You only get Jupiter, the planet of solutions, opportunities and growth, in your ideas zone every 12 years. Take full advantage of what opens up for you near Wednesday 17th May, especially online, as the worldwide web will net you the biggest audience. On that date, Jupiter will quincunx Neptune in your zone of finance, business, property, charity and income. Allow a day or two either side, but this is an epic story for you. Leo, it is time to be heard and read in a bigger and better way. There is also a separate story developing with your money, house, apartment, company and the rest – and if you want an escape from the real world, you will have one. This is a holiday from reality. It’s a cruise, or a plunge! These two stories may be connected of course. You might be offered a huge advance for a book, or thrown a lucrative media gig. Alternatively, Leo, you’ll feel as if you’re seeing two epic tales in your life told, separately from another – but at the same time.
TRAVEL AND TRAVEL IN THE MIND
The Ninth House of your chart rules travel and travel in the mind. Trips and head trips. Journeys - and intellectual or spiritual journeys. We have an unusual trine between Uranus in the Ninth House, the planet of freedom – and Saturn – this month. It takes place on Friday 19th May. That’s quite interesting, as in Roman mythology, Uranus was the father of Saturn. Sometimes these myths can occur quite literally during such a transit, so there may be in fact be some cutting-edge development that involves a break with the past, near the 19th. (If you are curious about the Saturn-Uranus myth, by the way, you can read more on my website). Leo - you may cut out someone/something which was previously part of your travel agenda, or your particular mission with teaching, study, publishing, writing and the rest. I suspect this has a lot to do with your big idea or concept, which as we’ve seen, becomes a major story a couple of days earlier. So the two cycles are connected – and in your favour.

Virgo: May 2017
YOUR LIFESTYLE, WORKLOAD AND BODY
Virgo, your lifestyle, workload and body define who you are. I am sure you don’t buy that line in Eighties astrology books about ‘Virgo is always fit and healthy, blah, blah, blah.’ And truthfully - you are not, necessarily a picture of perfect health, at all. In fact, Sun Virgo people just express their spirit and soul through their doctors, food, drugs, drink, fitness, healers and the rest. If their soul is in extremis, the body goes into extremis! What is true, however, is that your ability to work, and to perfect what you do – almost as a service to other people – is strongly influenced by the shape you’re in. Now, from 9th May until 6th November 2018 you will experience karma from many years ago, as well as previous lifetimes, with all these body and workload issues. The True South Node enters Aquarius on 9th May, joining the key asteroids Ops, Diana and Aesculapius (also in Aquarius) this month. Aesculapius is a powerful horoscope factor. The Romans dragged this god from Greece to their own city, to save plague victims. He is associated with the snake wrapped around the rod – and he was and is a miracle worker. Virgo, just when you think some aspect of your job in life, or your body, is never going to return – it comes back. That is what this asteroid will time for you. The pull of the past is incredible this month and it goes on for about two years. Everything old is new again. And specifically in May, it begins with a ‘wow’ moment as you see repetition, resurrection, revival and all the other ‘re’ words. It may be as ordinary as your old gym opening up again, near work – and the same boss coming back – but I think it will have a bigger impact on you than that. Let’s see.
TRAVEL, PUBLISHING, FOREIGNERS, EDUCATION, WEB
The above list has represented a massive change for you since February, Virgo, and in fact it’s been going on for such a long time, you may have even forgotten what a monumental thing you did, a few months ago! Nothing is yet resolved, though, as you decided to cut out something or someone, a few months ago – or substantially change it – and of course, that laid the ground for new things to come rushing in. You are still catching up with yourself and nothing is resolved, but in May, that will change. The Full Moon across 9th, 10th, 11th May will bring everything to a head. The Wheel of Fortune will also spin at that time, thanks to the powerful little asteroid Fortuna, so there may be a constant feeling of flux, no matter if it’s about Europe or your blog. Remember, this is the zone of global connections, the worldwide web and publishing! As your ruler Mercury is up to his usual tricks, there will be a replay or rewind from Tuesday 16th May, when you realise that the last few weeks or months was basically a dress rehearsal. It won’t be until 21st May that you know the full and final story. Virgo, peering further into your future, you are going to experience such an epic revolution with your journeys, trips, head trips and the rest – starting in one year’s time – that you may have needed this zig-zag progress. In other words, the peculiar course of your life since February has a deeper purpose. You are being bought time to absorb, contemplate and really understand why you are doing what you are doing. From May next year it all goes nuts and I strongly suspect it will be tied to a book, course, trip, move or foreign link. Maybe you even know it.
MONEY, BUSINESS, PROPERTY, POSSESSIONS, CHARITY
Around Wednesday 17th May Jupiter will quincunx Neptune. Jupiter is the planet of growth, expansion, solutions and benefits. The Romans called him Optimus Maximus. His bird was the eagle which saw everything in a big-picture way. His chosen medium was the thunderbolt. Thunder brings relief and release after tension. It also brings rain, which fertilizes, everything so growth can begin. Rubbish in the soil washes away in a thunderstorm. Virgo, there is something organic and natural about what is waiting for you near 17th May. If you planted something special with your money, business, house, apartment, charity or possessions a few weeks or months ago it could take off. If you always needed the rubbish cleared away so you could plant something better, that is also possible! It may be your good cause or it may be your company. What else is going down then? Neptune in Pisces tells you a familiar story. In fact, this special story is happening in parallel with what is going on, in money or property terms. The quality of the chemistry you share with your former, current or potential partner is intoxicating, remarkable and a fine path out of the real world near the 17th of May. That path for the two of you never really went away. Just remember, it’s not your entire landscape. Some Virgo people have an enemy, opponent or rival who is also a diversion for them; a holiday from the real world. If he or she matters more to you than love or sex, it may well be the fight that allows full flight, near May 17th.
Back to the money, honey! We have an unusual trine between Uranus and Saturn on Friday 19th May. This again falls in your sector of income, shares, property, debt and the rest. Philanthropy and collectors’ items too…Virgo, this is a pretty clear green light for you. The more you want to do things in a unique and original way, the more the universe comes out to meet you. I am sure you realise you can’t be too extreme. People do not always rush into changes as excitedly as you, especially when money is concerned. Yet, you would also be denying your own soul, to ignore the call for a fresh and highly experimental approach to all that you earn, own or owe. The trine from Saturn suggests this is not just another flavour of the month situation with your money or property. You can and should ground it. There should be rules and a bit of caution. And it’s not going too far to say that if you stand back from your life and look at just what you were doing – quite intuitively these last six years, it was like a process in search of a goal. That financial goal is now in front of you. It’s madly liberating on the deepest possible level and therefore, you should not be surprised when others (people or organisations) are equally liberated by it, and eager to join you in the ‘stable experiment.’ Premium Member?

Libra: May 2017
CHILDREN AND LOVERS
This is unusual. Libra, your zone of children and lovers brings repetition – quite striking repetition - from 9th May until 6th November 2018 . The reason for this is a flurry of activity in the sign of Aquarius, which rules babies, children and young adults who share a generation gap with you. This same chart zone also rules lovers, courtship and bed (temporary or permanent). Libra, you will experience karma from many years ago, as well as previous lifetimes. The True South Node enters Aquarius on 9th May, joining the crucial asteroids Ops, Diana and Aesculapius (also in Aquarius) this month. Aesculapius can bring someone/something back from the brink so there may be an old face on the pillow, or a past-life issue involving children, or younger people per se, returning. Many of you who went through epic episodes with sons, daughters, lovers, partners across I999, 2000 will see a replay of that in a specific way, as you will need to pay a debt and collect a credit. Sometimes the issue is younger people who have a professional link to you; you may be a teacher. More usually it is about your son or daughter. This is karma at work and you will notice it this month, certainly no later than 11th May. The trick with this transit is to work on your own response and reaction to the repetition! In other words, you craft your soul. When others just go through the motions, or you hit past-life stuck record situations, you can always choose how you are going to react. And that’s utterly within your control.
FINANCE, PROPERTY, BUSINESS, CHARITY
Well, at last some action and conclusion – this has been about three or four months of stuckness for you, Libra, as a couple of financial, house, apartment, business or charity questions have lingered longer. The Full Moon across 9th, 10th, 11th May will bring everything to a head. The Wheel of Fortune (the powerful little asteroid Fortuna) will also spin at that time, so expect flux. In fact, there will be a replay or rewind of one situation after Tuesday 16th May, when you realise that April was just a dress rehearsal and there was no way that February was going to resolve anything. It won’t be until 21st May that you know the full and final story. That is the reality of Mercury Retrograde Shadow and its impact on contracts, deals, the bank and so on. There is a higher purpose behind all this flux. I have been giving a few talks about this lately, but in May 2018 you are going to see a massive revolution affecting your budget, house, expenditure, apartment, land, business, income, contracts, pension/superannuation, legacy, insurance and the rest. Nothing comes from nothing in astrology. There is no big Monty Python foot that just plonks on your head in May 2018, one year from now. A lot of the trace elements of the change to come have been whirling around February through April. I reckon you’ll have a good idea of what/who is going to begin the revolution for you, by the final week.
ME, ME, ME (YOU, YOU, YOU)
Libra, go for it near Wednesday 17th May, especially online, as the worldwide web will bring the largest image rewards. This whole period is about your face, reputation, title, name, shape, style and profile. Jupiter will quincunx Neptune and that hardly ever happens. Allow a day or two either side, but this is an epic story for you, in terms of a relaunch. Whatever is on offer then will add lustre to your name or face and by all the laws of astrology you should take it further. There is also a separate story developing with your workload, lifestyle, body and daily routine. This is also worth tracking near 17th May. You’re being shown a way out. What we have here, is a parallel universe to drift and float in. A separate and special area of life, sectioned off (rather as theme parks are sectioned off) so that you can wallow and plunge. A spa springs to mind. So does a project that feels like a spa. You’ll make it happen. Just ring-fence it, because if whatever is going down with work, housework, volunteering, doctors, drugs, drink, study, healers or fitness spills over into the rest of your life – it will become pretty wobbly. A little bit of random is lovely if you can control it.
URANUS IN ARIES AND HIM (OR HER)
On Friday 19th May Saturn trines Uranus. This is about he or she, who counts so much. Your former, current or potential partner. Perhaps, your enemy. I know that since 2011 the whole area of sex, commitment, separation, love and the rest has been one grand experiment. You have been given one open door after another and taken every one of them. Sometimes the door has slammed in your face, but that has just led you to something else, either with this person, or quite another! Libra, near 19th May you will be given a chance to put the last half-dozen years in context, in terms of how you mate, date and relate. Also – how you fight. What goes down at that point will also help you earth things. This is rather like having a live electrical cable on the ground. Saturn does the grounding. Uranus does the electricity. I know this is all madly exciting and you are at your most inventive and free, as May rolls on – yet the trine to Saturn does suggest you have to get real. No point in fizzing and flapping about what excites you (or who excites you). Without grounding and some kind of plan, you have zip.

Scorpio: May 2017
YOUR APARTMENT, FAMILY, HOUSE, HOUSEHOLD, HOME
Some serious déjà vu is about to occur in your life, Scorpio. In fact, from 9th May until 6th November 2018 you will experience karma from many years ago, as well as previous lifetimes, with your live-in partner, children, parents, siblings, and perhaps some other branch on the family tree. This applies to tenants, builders, lodgers or landlords too – and of course, flatmates. The True South Node enters Aquarius on 9th May, joining the crucial asteroids Ops, Diana and Aesculapius (also in Aquarius) this month. The trick to this cycle which will take you into 2018, is to realise that it’s how you process and perceive the situation , that counts. Others are very unlikely to change their scripts, no matter what you say and do, as the Node is all about repetition, karma and the recycling of the past. You can select whatever you want to think or feel, though.
YOUR FORMER, CURRENT OR POTENTIAL PARTNER
The Full Moon across 9th, 10th, 11th May will bring everything to a head, Scorpio. This applies to enemies, too. The Wheel of Fortune (the powerful little asteroid Fortuna) will also spin at that time, so every high is a low, ultimately – and every low is a high, sooner or later. This should make you philosophical about what is going on. Very close to Tuesday 16th May, and 21st May, you will be able to gather everything together. You were actually ‘supposed’ to commit, split or pursue the big goals with, or without, this person back in February. This applies to enemies, too. February was when it was all supposed to happen. Since then, Mercury Retrograde has taken over, and it won’t be until the final ten day sor so of May that you feel the communication is watertight, the paper trail is in place and so on. Scorpio, if you are intuitive, you will realise that in about one year’s time you are poised for the biggest revolution with your former, current or potential partners in years. Enemies, too. Even if you feel clueless about the future, what happens as May resolves and finalises your questions, is laying the foundations for future change. What kind of change? Extreme. Liberating.
PSYCHIC OR PSYCHOLOGICAL? SECRET OR CLASSIFIED?
Matters which are occult, hidden, psychic, psychological, secret or classified are big near Wednesday 17th May, which works so well for you. This also applies to whatever you do behind the scenes, as Miss or Mr. Invisible. On that date, Jupiter will quincunx Neptune. This is pretty rare and rather helpful. I’ve been talking for months about how buried treasure rests far below the surface. You may be hand-in-hand with the FBI. Maybe you’ve disappeared and are allowing others to be the face or name of a situation. Maybe you have just been hibernating, engaging in therapy or meditating! Essentially, Scorpio, it’s all good. However, it is particularly good in mid-May. Around that time you also have this major statement in your chart from Neptune. The escape from the real world you long to plunge into, is available through younger people, or a lover. Through babies, children or young adults. Through courtship or your bedroom. It really depends on what you’ve set up for yourself, but as you go towards mid-May you can really wake up in a different kind of world. And you need it.
WORKLOAD AND BODY
Uranus trines Saturn on Friday 19th May. If you think back to the unbelievable progress you have made with your workload, body, doctors, service, duty, housework, healers, drug, food, drink, fitness, daily routine and lifestyle since 2011, you’ll see the pattern. Progress has been born out of rejection, perhaps. Maybe out of frustration or impatience with the old. Uranus transits typically mean you cover an awful lot of ground in just a few years, then wake up (as you will in 2019) and realise what an extraordinary thing you just achieved! There is more near 19th May. I would describe this as the next logical step in an ongoing revolution which excites and liberates others as much as it excites and liberates you. Yet, Saturn means you have to take it seriously. Okay? Do the homework. Ground this. What you might assume is just a passing new development or discovery could actually be for the long haul.

Sagittarius: May 2017
THE WORLDWIDE WEB AND MULTIMEDIA
You may return to an old idea, course or big project from 9th May until 6th November 2018. Alternatively you could go back to the same themes or experiences that you ever experienced online, or with your microphone or telephone. Public speaking is one example. Writing is another. This path you are taking (backwards) means you will experience karma from many years ago, as well as previous lifetimes. The True South Node enters Aquarius on 9th May, joining the crucial asteroids Ops, Diana and Aesculapius (also in Aquarius) this month. If you happen to be one of those Sagittarians who has a stack of stuff in Aquarius in your chart, then this project, idea, concept or course will involve a friend or group. This friend or group has past life debts or credits with you. Aesculapius is a powerful asteroid and can resurrect a part of your Communication H.Q. that you assumed was dying, or dead. Maybe you have left your capacity for the French language behind – but it’s now a thing again. Maybe you gave up on websites but now are poised to have another. If you were in full communication mode in I999, 2000 then you will see a replay of that and it’s possible the technology or a long-lost notebook will return. And how long does this go on for? Months. Maybe as long as late 2018.
WORKLOAD, BODY, LIFESTYLE, DAILY ROUTINE
You have not had the chance to pull everything together in any final way, since February began a chain of changes affecting your workload, body, lifestyle, health and/or daily routine. Sagittarius, that time is coming! The Full Moon across 9th, 10th, 11th May will bring everything to a head. In fact, there will be a replay or rewind from Tuesday 16th May, when you realise that April was just a dress rehearsal and February, March were never the end of the story. In fact, there may be unresolved contracts, schedules, launches, deadlines, appointments, reappointments and so on, dating all the way back to the second month of the year. It won’t be until 21st May that you know the full and final story. A great deal of what changes so radically in about one year from now, when Uranus enters Taurus, will have its roots in what began to change for you, across February-May. I am sure you know what I mean, as you were the first person to ditch/dump the situation, people or place a few months ago. Since then you have also pursued the new. This chopping and changing has left you in a state of flux, as you will see if you step back from all that has happened. Still, it has also loosened the soil so that new things can grow and that will happen – rapidly – in May 2018. For now, tie up loose ends.
JUPITER IN LIBRA AND GROUPS, FRIENDSHIPS
Say a big ‘Yes’ to a friend or group near Wednesday 17th May, when your ruling planet Jupiter will quincunx Neptune. This is an unusual alignment. It’s the kind of alignment that alters your destiny, as you may be aware. There is tremendous people power when you join a common cause or use a particular society, club, team, party and so on – to get what you want. There is also a rich seam of friendship in your life in mid May, which is ripe to be mined. At around the same time, Sagittarius, we are seeing a genuine escape route with your home, apartment, house, land, home town, homeland, household or family. A typical example would be a home exchange. Another might be downsizing to escape a heavy mortgage. Perhaps there is a chance to fly home – back to your real home town. Around 17th May you will receive on whatever level you put out energy, earlier this year or last year. Neptune never seems particularly real-world, regular or normal but that’s okay. You need a holiday from real!
URANUS TRINE SATURN
Uranus trines Saturn on Friday 19th May. This has been an enlightening six years, to say the least. You just don’t see children or lovers, the way you did pre 2011. This also applies to younger people in general and the whole business of courtship. The ground you have covered in that time has been phenomenal. It has made you feel alive, and also made others feel quite galvanised. There will be another ‘moment’ near 19th May as Uranus trines Saturn. You have the freedom to separate yourself from the past and to carve out your own niche, no matter if you have children or not – or have a lover or not. Saturn nearby suggests this is time to ground everything in reality. To take a practical, common-sense approach to what undoubtedly feels wildly exciting and quite liberating for you. You love ‘new’ and ‘different’ but in mid May you also have to give it some solid foundations. Premium Member? Continue.
Capricorn: May 2017
MONEY, PROPERTY, BUSINESS, CHARITY
Back to the Future, Capricorn. You will be time-travelling, in this lifetime or another, this month. In fact, from 9th May until 6th November 2018 you will experience karma from many years ago, as well as previous lifetimes, with those who owe you – and anyone to whom you ‘owe’. This may be about the house, company, business, apartment, possessions or money. Maybe it’s also about your values. What you will and will not sell out for. Who and what you consider to be precious or priceless! The True South Node enters Aquarius on 9th May, joining the crucial asteroids Ops, Diana and Aesculapius (also in Aquarius) this month. Aesculapius is about situations, places, people or objects that come back from the point of no return. Maybe this is about what you assumed you had left behind in I999, 2000. Perhaps it’s later on in your life – it really depends on your personal chart. Basically, you know exactly what to do and what not to do. Why? Because you have ‘been there and done that.’ You have seen this before, perhaps many times. I do think you’ll have a past life flashback, no matter if it’s accepting a bonus pay-out settlement, or winding up your eBay business.
LOVERS AND CHILDREN
To really understand the Full Moon across 9th, 10th, 11th May you need to look at the Fifth House of your chart. This is associated with the Sun and Leo in astrology. This makes us think of the Sun King and his love life at Versailles, but also his heirs to the throne. It’s the house of courtship, courtly love and the royal bedchamber. It’s also the house of children, adopted children, nieces and nephews and godchildren. Finally, we associate the Fifth House with children and teenagers who have a professional association with you, or an unpaid work association. No wonder all this has given you absolutely no final outcomes since February! Basically you have had unusual horoscope patterns that have led you into black holes, into new beginnings that have gone nowhere, and into detours without end. In fact, there will be a replay or rewind with one matter from Tuesday 16th May, when you begin to realise it may not be until 21st May that you know the full and final story. You are being bought time to think and feel, deeply. The delays or lack of conclusion has its purpose. You need to do this, so you can figure out exactly where your heart lies, when the most radical changes of your life begin, in one year from now. Trust this long and drawn-out process since February because the whole point of it was to get you to figure out who/what matters most to you. Changes are coming!
SUCCESS, AMBITION, POSITION, MISSION
Use what happens to your advantage near Wednesday 17th May, as on that date, Jupiter will quincunx Neptune. You may take an existing offer or opportunity further in quite a big way, then. Alternatively there may be one position, plan or mission you didn’t even know was coming. You have until October to really take this further, and you’ll be given some unbelievably lucky turning points or twists of fate, along the way. Jupiter is the protector, the problem-solver and the bringer of opportunity. Capricorn, you also need to look at what is on offer online near that date. This is a holiday from reality. It’s like being on a daytime TV show and communicating in some kind of parallel universe. It’s like having an alternative life on Skype. Take both feet off the ground then, in mid-May, but remember where you left the anchor and the ladder.
YOUR HOME OR FAMILY
Your house, home, apartment, family, household, home town or homeland is the target for the radical little planet Uranus, near Friday 19th May. He trines Saturn then, which is rare in your chart. So, you can be as radical as you like, going your own way and doing your own thing – but you need to ground it in the real world. You may have to respect the traditionalists and the past more than you wish. In fact, the best use of this cycle would be to strike out in an amazing new direction – one which excites you as much as others – but to always remember to keep the connection with who/what went before. Renovating a Victorian terrace means not ripping the tiles out. Reshaping the way your family works, means remembering Great-Grandfather. I do think around 19th May you’ll be doing something quite substantial. This isn’t just another little experiment, it’s part of a wider change which will alter your life for some time.

Aquarius: May 2017
IMAGE, PROFILE, IDENTITY, TITLE, ROLE, APPEARANCE
If you are old enough to remember the long, strange, fascinating, unusual trip you were on back in 1999, 2000 when your image became so important to you – then you’ll be curious about a flashback. Even if you are too young to have experienced the identity-changing, image-altering impact of 1999, 2000, it’s also true that flashbacks from past lives will roll from 9th May until 6th November 2018 and you will experience karma from many years ago, as well as previous lifetimes. The True South Node enters Aquarius on 9th May, joining the crucial asteroids Ops, Diana and Aesculapius (also in Aquarius) this month. Aesculapius is a powerful asteroid and you may go back to an old look, or an old name. Maybe you’ll go back to your maiden name, for example, or dye your hair back to its original colour. There are more serious and profound astrological trends afoot. If you were really pumping your name or face a few years ago but have not really done that since – you may find that it all comes back to you now!
HOMELAND, HOME TOWN, HOUSE, APARTMENT, FAMILY
I realize that you already made one substantial change with this, and perhaps your household too, back in February. You appear to have had quite enough of one situation. Since then you have left one matter hanging (think about it!) and also taken up a new direction only to find it’s taken ages to come together. So many loose threads in the embroidery, Aquarius! Well, now you get to weave them together. The Full Moon across 9th, 10th, 11th May will bring everything to a head. Then, you have a state of flux. In fact, there will be a replay or rewind from Tuesday 16th May, when return to whatever appeared to be so final in February-April and do it again, or do it differently. This may be a decision to sell your apartment, or a key choice about a relative moving in or out. Maybe you were on the renovation trail or dealing with a home town/council planning issue. In fact, there may be unresolved contracts, appointments, reappointments and so on, dating all the way back to February! It won’t be until 21st May that you know the full and final story. This is why I bang on about this cycle, months before it happens, so that you have ample warning. May is a time of conclusion, at last. I am sure you know, as well as I do, that this is only the foundation stone for greater change, in about one year’s time. You’re setting up that change now, and you know it!
TRAVEL AND TRAVEL IN THE MIND. TRIPS OR HEAD TRIPS.
The journeys may be intellectual, spiritual, academic or geographical. The baggage may be books, websites, ideas or genuine leather luggage. Aquarius, you will enjoy what unfolds for you (that amazing solution or opportunity)
near Wednesday 17th May, as on that date, Jupiter will quincunx Neptune. A glittering door will open into a new world of possibility, either resolving issues, or showing you marvellous new vistas. It may be time to go travelling to Europe, Asia or more exotic locations. Perhaps you need to study or teach at a new level, or publish. At the same time, Neptune in Pisces is telling you – you can have a holiday from reality with your cash, house, business, flat, charity or possessions. You need to contain and control it. Holidays have their place. They can’t be the whole of your life. Yet, if you can do that – you can also take another kind of trip. I think quite a few of you are going to rent your place out, up sticks and experience the thrill of an exchange rate in another country which makes you feel oh-so rich. That’s just one example of so many ways you can play what goes down mid May!
URANUS IN ARIES AND THE WEB
This is your ruling planet so listen up, Aquarius. We have an unusual trine between Uranus in the Ninth House, the planet of freedom – and Saturn – this month. It takes place on Friday 19th May. This is about the worldwide web or multimedia. Perhaps old-fashioned writing or public speaking. Maybe language or visual communication. Uranus is the planet we associate with the Enlightenment in 1781 and also the development of the battery. If it’s about invention, illumination or seeing the light – then it’s about you, this month. This is just what the project, concept, idea, technology or course will offer you. The difference this time is that you are being shown how to ground it. You can be too wild and too whackjob for other people, sometimes. Now, you are being guided towards a more moderate position. You’re still going to do something quite groundbreaking and radical here, but it will sit fine with traditionalists and honour the past as well. There’s no point in being cray-cray.

Pisces: May 2017
SECRECY, MYSTERY AND INVISIBILITY.
Pisces from 9th May until 6th November 2018 you will experience flashbacks, memories and the legacy of the past. These ‘rewind, replay’ experiences will concern the secret you cover up, the mystery you conceal, or the invisible role you play. The True South Node enters Aquarius on 9th May, joining the crucial asteroids Ops, Diana and Aesculapius (also in Aquarius) this month. Aesculapius is a powerful asteroid and can resurrect what you might have assumed was over, or nearly gone. A typical example would be a secret you buried some years ago, that now becomes a big deal again. It is also possible that you are going to see a thematic, or symbolic repetition. In other words, it’s a different situation with classified information, confidential subjects, solitude, hibernation, the occult, counselling, or other concealed issues - but a similar story to what you saw before. There may be a total throwback to what went down in I999, 2000 depending on your age, as in those years the Node, Uranus and Neptune were also in Aquarius – the same sign which rules all that hidden stuff now.
THE WORLDWIDE WEB, MULTIMEDIA, PUBLISHING, STUDY
Pisces, you must be wondering when on earth everything is going to be sorted out with your website, blog, book, multimedia interests, course, workshop and so on. It’s all been quite a trip since February and despite the dramatic choices you have made (two, maybe three) nothing has really settled. May will fix that for you. The Full Moon across 9th, 10th, 11th May will bring everything to a head. It’s pretty obvious looking at your chart that communication, news, paperwork, your telephone, your computer, e-mails and the rest have not exactly been straightforward. In fact, there will be a replay or rewind from Tuesday 16th May, when you realise that April was just a dress rehearsal. It won’t be until 21st May that you know the full and final story. Welcome to Mercury Retrograde Shadow! Luckily you were warned about this months ago, as I try to issue the dates far in advance on this website. So, it really won’t amaze you too much to see that it has taken you until the last 10 days of May to finally call time on a project, or see it through to the next stage. The same goes for people or large companies. They have been delayed, out of touch, unreliable sources and so on – yet in the final days of May things move along. Can I tell you the higher purpose of all the flux since February? You have been held up, quite purposefully, so that you can reach deeply inside your own soul to really get in touch with what you honestly think and feel. This is not just about the web, it’s about all means of communicating with people. You will see a revolution in May 2018, one year from now, and that revolution has its roots on what has just gone down since February. The delays or stop-start progress has shown you what matters and you’re going to need that, in one year’s time. Why? Radical, radical change you can’t imagine now.
FINANCE, PROPERTY, BUSINESS, CHARITY, POSSESSIONS
On Wednesday 17th May, Jupiter will quincunx Neptune, your ruling planet, in Pisces. You have an opportunity to make or save money, then – or a solution to an issue that concerns you, financially or with your property. Your ruler Neptune hardly ever lines up with Jupiter like this. Use it or lose it, Pisces. We associate Jupiter with win-win solutions and happy endings, no matter what. This planet is also linked to growth, abundance and expansion. Take your cue in mid May. At around the same time, you are in a good position to use your name, face, profile or title to escape from the real world. Once more. With feeling. Pisces, you do this a lot, but no matter if you are toying with television, playing with Instagram or mucking around with a pen name – there is a gateway into another world now, and it has your name written in turquoise and silver letters, above. Can you keep the unreal, real? Let’s hope so. The more real, your unreal ‘Me’ trip is at this point, the better it will work for you.
MORE ON YOUR MONEY
We have an unusual trine between Uranus and Saturn this month. It takes place on Friday 19th May. Give yourself a couple of days either side for the world to catch up with itself. I’ve mentioned a solution or opportunity with your money, business interests or property. That’s one half of the story. The other half of the story is the most unusual, unconventional approach to everything you own, earn or owe. We associate Uranus transits with this, because the brother and sister who found the planet were quite out of the ordinary. They were not astronomers. They were both feminists, of a sort. William played the organ in the young Jane Austen’s church. Caroline was a confirmed spinster who wasn’t supposed to be mucking around with telescopes. I tell you the story of the amazing Herschels because you need to get a sense of how unlikely, eccentric, unorthodox and the rest, this planet can feel, when it makes aspects in your chart. The road less travelled is the right one, now. You are going to break new ground, innovate, invent and excite yourself and others with your approach to your company, shopping, selling, houses, apartments and so on. Charity too, perhaps. The trick to this aspect is to ground everything so that it’s not just another mad moment; it has legs. Walk yourself into the future. You're years ahead. Premium Member? Continue.
