Stinking thinking, gains, challenges and more! Nothing boring about these 15 days! Overall, this can be a great time to realize your goals. There are many indicators that say hard work can bring great results.
Stinking thinking possible May 1 through May 9, 2012.
Beware of the tendency to have negative thinking and depression while Mercury opposes (is about 180 degrees from) Saturn. We may see other people as being difficult. Do what you can to help yourself feel better and realize that this aspect is just temporary. Upbeat music, dancing, chocolate, shopping and hanging out with people you care about might help.
Gains through elders, superiors, business, investments and serious relationships May 1 through June 3, 2012.
The planet of love and money, Venus, trines (is about 120 degrees from) Saturn, bringing opportunities for benefits through older people and bosses. It’s a great time for business and investments because you are willing to do the hard work necessary to have good results. Relationships turn serious and can be very good for people who are responsible for themselves as well as others.
Grand Cross April 1 through May 19, 2012 brings emotionalism and challenges.
Neptune, Mars and the Moon’s Nodes form a Grand Cross in the sky, indicating excess emotionalism, confusion and challenges. I prefer the word challenges to other words I might use, as challenges can be overcome and can encourage drive and achievement.
Neptune in Pisces has a hard time focusing on worldly matters. It can be imaginative, spiritual, caring and wanting to provide service to other people and animals, but it can also be easily deceived.
Mars in Virgo wants to get work done, but it tends to worry and be overly critical. And then when Mars opposes (is about 180 degrees from) Neptune, it can have unrealistic expectations, further exacerbating those qualities of worrying and being hypercritical. During this time we need to pay attention to our surroundings and work on seeing situations and people the way they really are, not how we hope them to be. We should be on guard against accidents, negative thinking, worry, poisoning and escapism, possibly through drugs and alcohol. Artistic and creative pursuits and service are good ways to channel this energy.
To further add to the potency of this energy between Mars and Neptune, the Moon’s Nodes get into the action and are squaring (about 90 degrees from) the opposition of Mars and Neptune. Moon’s Nodes are where the Moon’s path crosses the Earth’s path around the Sun. There are two Nodes, where the Moon’s path goes north of the Earth’s path, and then when it goes south of the Earth’s path. Vedic astrologers attach enormous power to them and think they are active whenever events happen that are noticed all over the world.
Great for accomplishing goals February 28 through May 31, 2012.
Energetic Mars trines (is about 120 degrees from) Pluto, making this a good time to aggressively start new projects, and work hard to accomplish goals. Your efforts will be rewarded. Pluto is connected to elimination—get rid of junk and clutter. This is a great time for spring cleaning.
I hope you have your goals in life written down. Many studies have shown that the people who write down their specific, measurable and objective goals are the people who reach them.
On days throughout May, other heavenly objects are in astrological angular positions with Mars and Pluto, adding more positive energy. On May 1, 2012, the Moon joins Mars, adding emotional oomph to the mix.
And then, on May 2 and 3, 2012, the Sun trines (is about 120 degrees from) Mars on one side and Pluto on the other, making a Grand Trine, a most beneficial configuration. This adds enthusiasm and dynamism.
From May 11 through 17, 2012, Mercury trines Mars on one side and Pluto on the other, forming a positive Grand Trine. Intellectual and communicative Mercury is willing to work hard to help with projects.
Major transformations February 27, 2012 through June 13, 2015.
Uranus and Pluto are so far from the Sun that they take a long time to go around the Sun and through the signs of the zodiac. When they form angles with other outer planets, those aspects are in effect for a long time. Uranus and Pluto form a square aspect (are about 90 degrees from each other) for more than three years, forming an underlying background for the other planetary aspects. We will not notice their effect every day of this period, but we will notice major changes that can be attributable to these planets. Uranus brings the unpredictable, the unusual and the eccentric. It is a very freedom-loving planet and it can be rebellious and strong-willed. Pluto is explosive, powerful and eliminates what is no longer needed. Uranus is in Aries, a strong and independent sign, and Pluto is in Capricorn, which rules structures, laws and governments. During this three-year period, we will see upheavals, struggles, revolutions, rebellions, unusual weather patterns and abrupt earth changes—volcanoes and earthquakes.
Good news for the economy and for you.
Jupiter is in Taurus where it will remain until June 11, 2012. Long-lasting aspects bring slow results, but over time, hard work and patience can create good outcomes. Jupiter brings blessings, opportunities, luck and expansion, and Taurus is a financial sign. Taurus is also slow moving, conservative and patient. Jupiter enlarges what it touches, so inflation may be part of the picture. Jupiter in Taurus is a fortunate time for making money if you are prudent and don’t expect to get rich overnight. I expect that the people who already have big money will continue to make big bonuses. With Jupiter in this sign, YOU should take advantage of opportunities to enlarge your financial picture. Do you have the money you want? If not, what do you need to do to get it? Are you doing what you need to do? Do you have multiple sources of income?
