Did you have a lovely Beltane? I hope so. Double rainbows appeared here in Sedona, a very beautiful uplifting and positive sign. The Rainbow bridge is the sign from Heaven that your prayers are being answered.
Hi-Lights of the first week in MAY. A BIG GRAND EARTH TRINE WEEK
All Grand Earth Trines are alchemical and refer to THE GREAT WORK. We are there now.
Alchemy starts with the MATERIA PRIMA or First Matter. The earliest source of First Matter for alchemists was the black, fertile soil of the Nile Delta. The very word “alchemy” is Arabic ” al-khemia” meaning “from the black dirt” of the Nile. This is an auspicious New beginning. We are beginning to embody SOUL.
GRAND EARTH TRINE- The Great Work
I have no attribution for this
with a New Moon in Taurus and Mother’s day
SUN TRINES JUPITER still RETRO @ 13 degrees TAURUS/VIRGO
The Sun is the Source and The Will. Jupiter is faith and trust and optimism and he is very strong as he plods slowly nearing the end of his retro journey since January 7th.
CAPRICORN’s or anyone with planets at the 11-15 degree range of EARTH SIGNS benefit.
The win-win combo of sensual practical beauty loving Taurus SUN and trusting optimistic go for it Jupiter- even Retro and in panicky, perfectionists, splicing and dicing, modest in Virgo garb is still GREAT.
Because Jupiter is still doing the Retro-dance plan now to release your ideas into the world at a later date when harmonious aspects again come up between the two.
May 4 SUN INCONJUNCTS SATURN in SAGITTARIUS @ 15+ degrees = Waving the red flag at a bull. @ 9:39 pm PDT
This aspect between the SOLAR BULL pulling the plow to fertilize the earth and Mr. Karmic Tester Saturn even in upbeat optimistic, multi-national, teaching, philosophy, laws, politics and humour oriented, easy-going Sagittarius proves to be difficult.
This bespeaks many a place where we will see it:
The Election in the U.S. of course; some stubborn International treaty or project being hampered by laws. Taurus SUN is stubborn and so is Saturn who digs his heels in trying to elevate things.
It is literally the warning sign in the stock markets for a Bull market stopping.
A good remedy is exercise, eating well and keeping your hide out of trouble.
Be careful of people being irritable, easily annoyed and obstinate.
MAY 5 CINCO DE MAYO The Sun Saturn inconjunct occurs @ 12:39 am EDT.
VENUS INCONJUNCTS MARS @ 6+ degrees TAURUS /SAGITTARIUS 7:10 am PDT/10:10 am EDT/2:10 pm GMT
Yikes this quincunx occurs exactly on my SAGE SUN @ 6+ degrees.
The inner and outer masculine and Feminine will be feuding and fighting my friends.
Venus has the advantage as she is in her own sign. Enuf said.
NEW MOON MAY 6 at 16+ degrees TAURUS
will write about that one separately
SUN TRINES PLUTO in Capricorn @ 17+ degrees
This is excellent for all your earthers out there. This is basically a Grand Trine held over from the 3rd
The Sun is LIGHT and Life PLUTO is the DARK and DEATH. The Taurus Sun wants to revel in our earthly Garden of Eden, and revel we should. Pluto the Lord of Death, shows us that we must be aware of our shadows and our fears at every moment so that we can have more power by living and grounding our Souls to the earth. I read something by musician Elijah Ray on FB where he talked about always feeling alienated and wishing he could go home to his cosmic origins. Then realized he needed to bring “home” here to earth, that was why he embodied. I thought that was a beautiful story which really touched me deeply.
A friend died suddenly a few days ago and that is always a shock, another reminder of how we never know, moment to moment if we will be here or transcend and go elsewhere, leaving everything we had learned established and embodied behind in an instant. RIP Steve.
This aspect is very empowering. Bring your earthly gifts to bare against the shadow of death, which is not to be feared. It is merely another dimension of life.
