May 2013 Overview
Embrace the Unknown
Cancer May Horoscope
by Jeff Jawer
Although you start this month with your feet on the ground managing your responsibilities, you grow more reflective as the days wear on. However, it seems as if your progress is being thwarted at every turn, but your strong resolve enables you to prevail. Four planets traveling through determined Taurus and your 11th House of Long-Term Goals can make you stubborn, encouraging you to resist the pressure to change.
However, adaptability becomes your secret weapon when magnetic Venus enters inquisitive Gemini and your 12th House of Soul Consciousness on May 9, stimulating your curiosity about spiritual practices. Meanwhile, a Taurus Solar Eclipse the same day reveals the instability of your current plans, suggesting that maintaining the status quo is no longer working.
The direction of your life is shifting, and transformations also occur on a more subconscious level as thoughtful Mercury joins visionary Jupiter and desirous Venus in your spiritual 12th House of Contemplation on May 15, followed by the Sun on May 20 and Mars on May 31. Although these planets in restless Gemini increase the noise level in your head, these are not conversations that you want to have with anyone else.
You are given a chance to contemplate your inner journey and its impact on your daily routine when the freedom-loving Sagittarius Lunar Eclipse shakes up your 6th House of Habits on May 25. There's plenty of change in your professional world, too, as the long-lasting Uranus-Pluto square on May 20 influences your 7th House of Relationships and your 10th House of Career. This dynamic aspect isn't only about a single event, but rather the continuation of a metamorphosis that began on June 24, 2012, and lasts through March 16, 2015. —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 [...]
