MONTHLY HOROSCOPE COLUMN
- May 2000 Horoscope -
May 3rd there will be a cosmic stampede of 7 planets all aligned
in the earth sign of Taurus. This is the most planets in one
sign since February 1962 in Aquarius. On May 3rd there will be
a New Moon in Taurus as well as Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter
and Saturn in Taurus. Then on May 28, Jupiter the planet of expansion,
the Santa Claus of the zodiac, making things bigger more and
better, conjuncts Saturn, the planet of limitation, discipline,
responsibility, limitation, the cosmic cop, the reality check
planet of the zodiac in Taurus. This occurs once every 20 years,
and is an excellent time for us to manifest our dreams, to ground
and manifest our visions of abundance. The last time this conjunction
occurred was in 1980-1981 in the sign of Libra.
Conjunctions represent endings and beginnings, the completion
of one cycle and the initiation of the next. Since the Jupiter
Saturn conjunction is in Taurus, a fixed earth sign, there will
be an intense focus on how we relate to Mother Earth, our physical
world, especially in terms of economics and the environment.
Look for economic shifts worldwide plus fluctuating stock and
real estate markets. Eschew materialism and greed. At the same
time, tune into a deeper appreciation of the natural world and
all the grace and bounty the goddess has blessed us with. Since
Taurus rules agriculture some have even predicted extreme weather
Prepare for the cosmic questions when Jupiter and Saturn come
together in May 28th.
What do we really want? What do we really NEED?
Quality will become much more important than quantity. We
have an opportunity to reevaluate how material things figure
into out lives. These themes triggered in May will continue well
into the future.
Continue meditating upon the deeper issues affecting our lifepath...
What will we spend our time and energy and money on? How will
we steward the earth and her resources? How will we consciously
deal with issues of security, resources, values, and foundations.
How can we balance expansion and conservation? Optimism and pessimism?
Vision vs. hard work?
The Jupiter Saturn conjunction can also be seen to have a
strong correlation to long term cycles in US stocks. Pivotal
Supreme Court decisions have also been made during this time,
as well as positive developments in the field of education.
Also, Neptune, the planet of spirituality and Uranus the planet
of rebellion square the planets in Taurus------challenging the
status quo and asking for a fairer distribution of the earth's
resources. Uranus and Neptune beg the question-what will serve
the greatest good for all of humanity?
HOW WILL THIS SUPER CONJUNCTION AFFECT YOU PERSONALLY? HOW
WILL IT AFFECT YOU CAREER, RELATIONSHIPS, HEALTH, FINANCES?
THE KEY IS SACRED BALANCE...YOU CAN EXPAND YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS,
RESPONSIBILTIY AND AWARENESS IN THIS AREA.
