May 2013 Overview
Work in Progress
Virgo May Horoscope
by Jeff Jawer
You may be frustrated by setbacks to your plans this month, but you can rebound quickly and establish new goals based on a deeper awareness of who you are and how you want to express yourself. Your ability to make long-term plans is quite sound, with incisive Pluto in your 5th House of Self-Expression creating a harmonious trine with the Sun on May 1, Mars on May 5, and Mercury on May 7—all in your 9th House of Future Vision.
A Taurus Solar Eclipse in your 9th house on May 9 is a harbinger of unexpected change, though, even if everything seems stable in the moment. Venus' entry into your 10th House of Public Responsibility, also on May 9, shifts your focus to seeking recognition on the job. Your thoughts turn to more immediate career concerns when analytical Mercury steps into your 10th house on May 15.
The Sun and Mars follow suit on May 20 and May 31, further emphasizing the transition from planning for the future to dealing with the present. All of these planets—plus opportunistic Jupiter—traveling through diverse Gemini may present so many options that narrowing your focus can be problematic.
Nevertheless, bigger changes are afoot, stemming from a long-lasting square between revolutionary Uranus and evolutionary Pluto that began on June 24, 2012, and culminates on March 16, 2015. This powerful aspect is exact on May 20, deepening an inner conflict between your urgent need to express yourself more passionately and the growing stress it places on your personal relationships. On May 25, a Sagittarius Lunar Eclipse lands in your 4th House of Roots, which can put an end to unrealistic dreams about your home and family. —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 [...]
