Based on Certified Consulting Astrologer DIANA BROWNSTONE’s interview with VOGUE’s ARIANA IONESCU.
What’s Going on in May? After all the retrograde planets in April (four!) frustration from stalled projects and endless waiting is finally subsiding. Venus went Direct (April 15th) affecting personal relationships – now getting back on track. Financial setbacks, also related to the recent Venus Retrograde, should have begun to sort out as well. Mercury was retrograde until May 4th – and is now direct. During Mercury Retrograde our attention is drawn to the importance of details, communication, and of keeping technology up to date and backed up. Mercury leaves the shadow (ending the retrograde cycle) on May 21st.
Last week’s full moon in Scorpio may have brought on some outbursts of emotion because it also coincided with Uranus (havoc/impulsiveness) conjoining Mercury (communication). Are all your relationships still intact from that planetary fiasco?
We are now getting the first glimpse, from the political news stories, of the theme of the major eclipse that will fall right across the U.S. on Aug. 21st. Recently the nodal axis has been crossing that same zodiacal degree (29 degrees Leo/Aquarius) the past week where the eclipse will occur. As I mentioned in my workshop last October (see video), the 29th degree of Leo is also Trump’s Ascendant/Descendant axis. The stories in the news now will come to a head at the August eclipse time – and we will (hopefully) find out the truth to all the ‘Fake News’ (Saturn/Neptune) stories about Russia as well as what is really going on behind the scenes with Trump, the FBI, North & South Korea and many other global issues. And an easy guess as to who is hacking into the world’s computer systems is seen by noticing none of our financial systems or stock trading has gone down…yet. A test-run perhaps? I spoke all about the deception in the media correlating with the Saturn/Neptune square as well in my Forecast workshop. Clues are on the major TV shows if you know where to look!
On a positive note, Saturn, now retrograde – provides us with our last opportunity to restructure areas of our lives where Saturn is now transiting in Sagittarius. Yes, there is always some good that comes with Saturn’s influence to help us structure and discipline wherever we are lax. A reading will clarify on which area(s) to focus to get the most of this last retrograde before Saturn moves into Capricorn in December. The next Expo in N.Y. is not until October, so if you missed my last workshop, and don’t know what’s coming down the pike, get the DVD of the workshop see preview below of thevideo to get up to speed on the coming drastic Economic Indicators in the Planets. Already 40% of Citibank’s cash machines have gone off-line. Buy 1 DVD and/or accompanying CD/Booklet “Practical Preparedness to 2020 & Beyond” and get an organic seeds starter pack free! What a deal!
