When traveling through tidal Cancer, Mars managed to stir a number of pots. Together with that intense Scorpio full Moon and eclipse of May 5th, they unearthed a number of unattended emotional issues. On May 20th Mars left the feminine, Moon-ruled sign for masculine, august Leo. In the wake of that eclipse, Venus entered caregiving Cancer on May 7th and quietly began cleaning up the emotional messes left by Mars and its ancient ruler Scorpio. On June 5th, Venus too will leave the nurturing realms of Cancer, when she embarks on an unusually lengthy four-month journey through Leo. While still in soothing Cancer, she will become part of a Grand water trine that will involve Neptune in Pisces and a markedly different Scorpio Moon.
Jupiter in Taurus
Forecast May 8-21, 2023: Fire Away
Starting on May 16th a t-square involving Mars, Jupiter and Pluto will begin taking shape. It will culminate on the 22nd when a Mars square to Jupiter becomes exact. Reverberations will be felt in the following days and weeks. The combination of Mars, Jupiter and Pluto is an interesting one. Boiled down to its most basic elements, this is a mixture of passion, expansion and transformation. On the geo-political stage and darker side, the war between nuclear armed nations could easily escalate during this time. On the brighter side, unprecedented international alliances, agreements and systems may suddenly emerge. On a personal level, this trio presents a powerful opportunity to abandon ambiguity and to chart a bold new course.
