May 2017

The steady, indulgent Taurus Sun progresses through the first three weeks with a kindly sextile to Neptune on the 3rd and a get-it-together trine to Pluto on the 9th but generally isn’t distracted.

Mercury goes direct on the 3rd in Aries which will get rid of irksome delays and communication glitches; from mid month it joins the Sun in Taurus.

Mars in chatty, argumentative Gemini has a busier month in a glamorous, though marginally uncertain square to Neptune on the 11th and a positive-thinking, successful trine to Jupiter a day later. It runs into a setbacks and major irritation in opposition to Saturn on the 19th and an uncompromising though inventive sextile to Uranus on the 31.

The one major outer planet aspect is Saturn trine Uranus on the 19th which could point to constructive progress.

From the 20th the mood changes with the Sun flitting into restless, airy Gemini for four weeks. A time for multi-tasking, dashing off in all directions constantly and talking non-stop.



3: Mercury direct in Aries – life flows more smoothly hereafter.

4: Sun in Taurus sextile Neptune in Pisces – kind, vague, dreamy.

9: Sun trine Pluto in Capricorn – problems solved, lessons learned and more coping skills for the future.

10: Mercury conjunct Uranus in Aries – inspired, short attention span, honest.

Full Moon in Scorpio – pulled in two directions.

11: Mars in Gemini square Neptune – can bring a panicky sense of failure or oddly enough publicity and glamour.

Mercury trine Saturn in Sagittarius – sensible, practical plans.

12: Mars trine Jupiter – healthy, energetic, creating own luck through determined action.

16: Mercury into Taurus till June 6th – mind turns to practical matters, conversations need a tangible outcome.

19: Saturn in Sagittarius trine Uranus – merging best of old with best of new, well-balanced between practicality and inspiration.

Venus opposition Jupiter – frivolous, indulgent.

20: Sun into Gemini for four weeks – busy schedule, a time of little things, short distance trips, chats and projects.

25: Venus in Aries square Pluto – charismatic, jealous, possessive.

New Moon in Gemini – new beginnings.

28: Mercury sextile Neptune – kind, evasive, dreamy.

29: Mars opposition Saturn – impatient with delays, accident prone.

31: Mars sextile Uranus – inspired and inventive, independent-minded.

Mercury trine Pluto – persuasive, deep thinking.


Jupiter in Libra from September 9th 2016 until October 11 2017 – keen on reaching better agreements with others, that are fair to all, expansive for one-to-one partnerships.

Saturn: In Sagittarius from September 19th 2015 till late December 2017 – serious about knowledge, education, legal matters, religion. Defensive about criticism, self-righteous.

Uranus: In Aries from 1 March 2011 till 2018 – hyper-active, energetic, determined to make new starts even if it means upsetting people, go ahead.

Neptune: In Pisces from February 2012 for thirteen years – religious, spiritual, has resonances with Muslim history.

Pluto: In Capricorn for sixteen years from Nov 2008 till 2024 = complete deconstruction and reconstruction of global economic and commercial structures and systems, as well as major changes in way in which governments work. In past times of Pluto in Capricorn (approximately every 250 years) there was territorial domination on a grand scale by charismatic leaders and ultimately a time of culture, learning, justice and prosperity.
