Venus is dipping on the horizon during May, shortly to disappear and become the morning star in a few weeks time, where once again it will link up with Jupiter and we will get another amazing light show, but this time in the East just before sunrise as opposed to just after sunset. Venus going retrograde in it’s five times every eight years pentagonal cycle, this time round in Gemini, will bring an all round change and re-evaluation as to how we individually and as a species process and deal with information. Mars is beginning to pick up speed, heading for mid Virgo and his August date with Saturn with a bit more verve, and of course Jupiter is rocketing through Taurus now, bringing a great deal of growth into the lives of those born in the last ten days of Taurus, although late Scorpio’s, Leos and Aquarians may not appreciate his largesse. Even the Moons are relatively quiet; although the Gemini new Moon on the 20th is strongly squaring Neptune, so expect further revelations about the nebulousness and deceptiveness of the media. This month is not going to see any brand new startling changes – instead it will see the first results of the changes of recent months, and these results will start to appear more in our personal lives as opposed to at the big picture. Except for those getting hit by Saturn, this is not a bad month – perhaps the best of the year so far. So stupid as it seems, it’s time to cautiously step outside of the cave and back into what’s left of the world, ready to begin again.
