May 2013 Overview
Be the Change
Capricorn May Horoscope

If your determination meets dogged resistance early in the month, it's a signal telling you to get busy rather than falling victim to discouragement or self-doubt. Your creativity feels blocked when constrictive Saturn opposes energetic Mars on May 1 and expressive Mercury on May 5; step back so you can solidify your thoughts and strengthen your plan of attack. Thankfully, Pluto in your ambitious sign trines the Sun on May 1, Mars on May 5, and Mercury on May 7, empowering you to overcome whatever obstacles you face.
A Taurus Solar Eclipse on May 9 can push your creativity to the limit, yet its conjunction with Mercury in your 5th House of Self-Expression reminds you that logical analysis doesn't always lead to the best solution.
Your naturally methodical approach to your daily routine at home and on the job becomes scattered when resourceful Venus enters flighty Gemini and your 6th House of Habits on May 9, followed by chatty Mercury on May 15 and the Sun on May 20. Your desire to widen your vistas reaches a turning point when optimistic Jupiter in your detail-oriented 6th house runs into an anxious sesquisquare with pessimistic Saturn.
Meanwhile, the life-changing Uranus-Pluto square that drives deep changes in your personal life from June 24, 2012, through March 16, 2015, is exact on May 20, agitating unrest on the home front and triggering your need for freedom. The Sagittarius Lunar Eclipse on May 25 illuminates your 12th House of Escapism and squares dreamy Neptune, luring you to retreat into fantasies, rather than dealing with the serious issues of your life. —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 [...]
