May 2013 Overview
On Shaky Ground
Aries May Horoscope
by Jeff Jawer
A pair of powerful eclipses this month takes you right to the precipice of change. On May 9, a Solar Eclipse in stubborn Taurus falls in your 2nd House of Resources, raising questions about finances and self-worth. If you've been sticking to an unrewarding job or investing too much in materials or skills that aren't paying off, it may be time to reassess your economic decisions. A Lunar Eclipse in adventurous Sagittarius on May 25 rattles your 9th House of Travel and Higher Education.
A stressful square to the Moon from imaginative Neptune can arouse fantasies of escape. Idealizing a place from your past might provide some inspiration, but it's more likely to distract you from discovering new ways to explore the world and broaden your mind. Yet even if you have your head in the clouds, your feet should remain on the ground when brainy Mercury travels through easygoing Taurus and your 2nd house on May 1 and 15.
Curiosity and flirtatiousness are part of the package when friendly Venus dances into lighthearted Gemini and your chatty 3rd House of Communication on May 9. You're more likely to appreciate people and activities in small doses now; boredom can set in very quickly. Mercury enters your 3rd House of Information on May 15, as does the Sun on May 20, brightening your days with a variety of experiences and people.
Your willingness to talk about anything with just about anyone is excellent for opening new channels of communication. Just make sure that you're dealing with people who really understand a subject before you put your faith in what they say. Mars bounces into airy Gemini and Mercury swims into watery Cancer on May 31, encouraging casual behavior and subjective thinking. —Tarot.comPREVIOUS MONTH

As eclipses go, in astronomical terms this is a short (27 minutes) and minor (covering only a sliver of the Moon) version. But still, to astrologers, eclipses rank highly as indicators of disturbance and change, so we pay it due attention. Especially when the chart is strong, as it is this time, with either end [...]
Happy New Moon in Aries today and Pluto going retrograde Friday This Aries New Moon reminds us of the energy of Mars which always wants action. Bringing action to a situation helps relieve aggression, anger or accidents. Take time to ground and center, inhale from the center of your “I AM” consciousness and emerge renewed [...]
So, things are a tad crazy in this dear old world of ours, especially for people who live on the Eastern seaboard of the US and the Boston region in particular. It’s not only the violence and the insecurity that brings, but then the What! Chechnya? element of apparent randomness and the unknown. Not what [...]
Monday, February 18 the Sun goes into the sign of Pisces which is the last sign in the zodiac, the sign that describes the inner plane of magic and miracles. Pisces is the place where energy is yet unformed and not solid, therefore can feel illusive, confusing and deceptive but really still holds the promise [...]
