During April we had plenty of opportunities to be affected by Saturn/ Pluto conjunction that occur in January 12.2020. Saturn moved to Aquarius, but it is still remains in aspect of 4-5 degrees of Pluto. We all experienced restriction, isolation, quarantine and the archetypal Saturnian figure of the Hermit as symbolic of a secluded life and social distancing as part of our lives. The themes of Pluto, lord of the underworld is current and scary- we are confronted with fears of death and manipulations, orders and instructions every day. Our life is changed forever. We found hidden, more important values in everyday tranquility, being closer to our family and children.
Four planets Retro in May: Saturn, Jupiter and Pluto, plus Venus. Saturn Retro in Aquarius May 11 (until September 29). Jupiter Retro on May 15 (until September 13) Pluto Retro since April 26 until October 8. Much of what has happened all too quickly, must now be carefully comprehended and corrected if necessary. Mutual reproaches must be expected. Mars enters the water sign of Pisces on May 13, which, on the one hand, gives hope that such disputes will be performed with a certain degree of compassion. On the other hand, with Mars in Pisces, the sign ruled by imaginative and misty Neptune, it may be difficult to get to the heart of the matter, to be difficult to uncover the vail.
May 3.2020 Venus squares Neptune. After all difficulty and isolations, we all long for better social life, for more clear and open communication without restrictions, with more romance and fun, getting together with friends and groups. Is this possible? Or we live in the fog that Venus creates with the square to Neptune on May 3.2020. Neptune open our idealism, spirituality and desire for more satisfaction and greater life experience; unfortunately, the square points to inner conflict, with unclear path how to get there and how to solve the issues, to be happier and have marked direction. Our desire to have new way of communications and better relationships is enhanced, we will be ready to use new creative ways to show up and prove ourselves. The Neptune square may wake our creative juices and make us more innovative and resourceful; still the result can be illusive and hard to reach. At list, we are inspired and moving to the right direction. Attention “buyers” and “lovers”, don’t trust anything you see or hear plus or minus two days of the aspect, as Neptune is illusive, even more – deceive.
May 7, Full Moon in Scorpio. Scorpio is the eighth astrological sign in the Zodiac and quite an extreme one. Mars is the first ruler of Scorpio. Pluto the planet of depth and power is also a sub-ruler of Scorpio. At this time, Mercury still in Taurus will sextile Neptune. We are in a dream mood, we wish for better life and great news, for understanding and compassion, we have vision and intuition that is quite right, and Neptune prognosis is that we may become more spiritual, with mystical quality and desire to escape from daily life with a pink glasses and lovely imaginings about the future. The truth comes from the opposition between the Full moon in materialistic Taurus and Pluto- the power and manipulative planet that impends fears of death or debit.
This full moon requires to let go of the past, to remove the clutters of our life and all things not necessary (Pluto is the planet of elimination), to be more open in our psychic intuition able to communicate using a softer tone, than be aggressive or greedy. It is time to forgive and move on. If it concern children or someone that is moving out, we need to communicate with them on a spiritual level, encouraging them to be true to themselves, to follow their dreams, to show our love and to free them as everyone need to get out of the cage and follow his own dream and desire. There is no progress and fun, creativities are blocked, if we are trying to hold on something that is no longer work or is out of date. Saying goodbyes is never really easy, but with this magical full moon it will ease our pain so that we can turn it into something positive. Remember, every time one door is closed, opening another door very soon with new opportunities.
Venus remains in Gemini during May, she entered Gemini in April 4 to say until August 7.2020. May is going to be strongly influenced by Venus traveling through the Master of Communications, the sign of Gemini. Venus is transiting Gemini, retrograde May 13 and goes direct on June 25, and remain in this sign until August 7. Gemini’s ruling planet is Mercury, the planet of communication, transportation, the community we live in, the language we speak, how and what we learn, as our perceptions are shaped by language, images and what we see during our childhood or how we live and compete with our siblings and school mates.
Gemini represent Mercury and the ancient symbols of master of the communication. Its concerns are – speaking, writing, teaching, persuading, and selling, how we learn the languages in the culture or family. Telegraph, telephones and television are all ruled by Gemini or their ruler Mercury. Gemini are best sale’s people, they are willing to persuade as to buy what we need and what we don’t need, they are capable to sell ice to the Еskimos. Gemini are restless, they like to travel and spread the news. These that are reach, have resources and have the best methods to advertise and persuade us, they will be able to sell their products, services or ideas. They will be able to influence the media, to tell them what to tell us and to sale their ideas and products. The looming question that now arises is a real challenge. Who is telling the truth?
On a personal level, we are still operating, in many cases, with a localized pre-civilized brain, while the mass media floods with ads, targeted “opinions”, arguments and debates, all of which have their own versions of “the truth.” My questions is in this case of emergency, do we have clear and accurate communication or we are separated, mislead or perplexed intentionally? The president of USA, Donald Trump, Prime Minister of the UK Boris Johnson, and the President of China, Xi, they are all born under the sign of Gemini. You can get your own conclusions about this!
Mercury enters Gemini May 11 until May 30. When Mercury is in Taurus, we expect manifestation to be a long -term process and journey, as Taurus is slow thinker with patients and acts well planned. When in Gemini, Mercury is quick, restless, impatient, looking for quick triumph and fast answer, sometime so quick, that we can not even follow what is in his mind. Mercury in Taurus is more dower than talker, Mercury in Gemini is chatty and unpredictable.
The north and south nodes move from Cancer and Capricorn to Gemini and Sagittarius. Venus in Gemini and Mercury will take essential place for the next two years, as the North Node of the Moon goes into Gemini (the South Node into Sagittarius) on May 5 2020 until January 29, 2022.
Interesting fact about astrology and similarity of events that need to be noticed. Like the present, the transiting North Node (which moves backwards in the Zodiac) last moved from early Cancer into Gemini in September/October of 2001, when The World Trade Center and the Pentagon were attacked! There was also a great opposition of Pluto to Saturn at that time, similar in nature to the Pluto/Saturn conjunction we just experienced in January of this year. The Corona Virus Pandemic and September 11 both came as great emergency to fight for the health and safety. Go back to this time and think again what happened; then, make your own assumptions about what is going now and where we are moving.
As the North node/ south nodes of the moon sifts from Cancer/ Capricorn to Gemini/ Sagittarius, the eclipses will take place in Gemini / Sagittarius, as well. We have two more eclipses in Cancer/ Capricorn in June and July; then we will witness a Full moon eclipse in Sagittarius in June 2020, the first in many years, for which I will get more details in June’s newsletter.
Sun enters Gemini on May 20. The airy themes of Gemini are now emphasized even more strongly. Ideas are exchanged and a certain lightheartedness may arise here and there. On the downside, there could be quite a bit of trickery and a general tendency toward verbosity. Yet, there is another important Gemini theme – trade and it is quite possible that some restrictions will be lifted, and small trade may get a chance to recover and develop again. Two days later, new Moon occurs in the dual sign of Gemini, too. Gemini, Gemini, Gemini.
Venus Retro in Gemini From May 13 to June 24. The mass media, all radios and TV stations overwhelm us with ads, targeted “opinions”, arguments and debates, all of which have their own versions of “the truth.” Needless to say, in this time of world-wide crisis, we don’t know who we have to believe, who is telling the truth, who is exaggerating the reality and who lies. It is time, it is crucial to have clear and accurate communication. Hope during Venus overstay in Gemini will clear the road to the truth, but before we find what the real facts are, we will be stirred up in a deep fog one more time, as Venus goes Retro in Gemini and this will be the most unclear time. Or, may be I am wrong, maybe when Venus Retro, she will unveil many hidden intentions and who stay behind them. One way or another, from May 13 to June 24 will be searching for the real facts, we are going to dig deep and use all our resources to get to these hidden from us facts to the forefront and to be deal with! Anything that was hidden which was causing turmoil coming out into the open to be release soon. We need to use our higher thoughts, to release forgiveness and let it flow out of us, this way we will find the world to be a better place now that you have decided to take the higher realm, releasing and letting go!
Since Venus rules, money, finances, love and family, in a personal level, I want to notify you to be very careful during this time, as you may feel sorry later. Don’t get married, do not sign financial contracts, take loans or borrow money! Make sure you have best financial advice, take a step back and revise your relationships, and try to understand the other side of view, make compromise and be patient. If you have misunderstanding and difficult time with loved one, step back, take break and think one more time before taking major decision. After Venus start Direct on June 25, it is still going to be in Gemini, you still have a chance to improve the communication, find better deals and secure the knot. Until June 25 spread love and ask for forgiveness. Remember, whatever you give, the same you will receive. What to do during Venus retro? Secure your finances, devote some leisure time to a hobby you used to enjoy, solve relationship issues. Enjoy spa, massage and hearty meals with family and loved one, be compassionate, be patient, you will be rewarded big times if you do so.
Recently, we have been shown pictures taken of the earth’s atmosphere during the “big shutdown”. Clear blue skies, clean waters, and the evaporation of pollution, all these demonstrate how the traditional ways of doing business in big developed economies on the earth are destroying the environment. Now, we can see the challenges we are facing: threaten all biological life on earth or dissolve the present vast economic support systems.
While being quarantined at home due to the Corona virus, many of us are anticipating all this and some are so conflicted they are feeling hopeless, depressed, and some mentally paralyzed. Others are opening up their “inner psyches” and receiving spiritual support they have never quite felt before. I think, this level of inspiration comes from a “higher realm.” If we ask for help, we will receive it. Many of us now elevate their energy and vibration level, praying to save the mother earth. Other groups organize combined imaginary vision for better world, for more clear communication, for universal love and assistance. Global peace and healing meditation and visualization are methods used by many groups today to restore the earth as we spread love and compassion to all that need help. A high consciousness thinking, and great awakening take place every day, reaching and evolving more people who wants to restore the peace and natural life in the planet. I am positive and I believe – soon, we are going to witness a wonders, we will have new revolutionary leaders who cares about us, soon we are going to have cure and vaccines to solve the world health problems and life threatening viruses; there are people outer who wants to spread the truth, to stop the collapse of the economy and create global peace and harmony.
