Sun and Mercury changed sign on the 21th of May 2019, marking the beginning of Gemini season. After the fixed, earthy, sensual Taurean vibe this is a significant energy shift. Gemini is a mutable air sign, associated with transitions and changes. Compared to Taurus, it is more cerebral, lighter and more diffuse.
Transformations will bring new growth and stability
The first half of May is a good time for well thought out changes in the areas of your life that are no longer working. However, gratification doesn’t come right away. It is a long process and it will require conscious efforts, patience and willingness to start from the bottom and to make some sacrifices.The 9th of May is a particularly significant day, when some planetary aspects related to these changes perfect and speed up the process of transformation. These cosmic influences will be active during the whole week
The second week of May is shaped by a complex interplay of some significant planetary influences. It is time to think about our relationship – patterns, value system, our ideas about security, stability. Making the necessary evaluations and adjustments will bring new growth and happiness.
The new moon of the 4th of May occurs at the 14°10′ of Taurus. New moons mark the beginning of a 28 day cycle and they are also favorable for fresh starts, especially on the areas of life where they fall on your chart. Finances, values, security, food, possessions, comfort, sensual pleasures are ruled by Taurus, so the current lunation brings in focus these themes.
In spite of the good opportunities emerging during the coming weeks, the first days of May are prevailed by tension and difficulties of communication.
The Full Moon of the 19th of April occurs at 29°06′ of Libra. In Astrology full moons mark the end of a 28 days’ cycle started at the previous new moon, respectively that of the 5th of April. They are also culmination points, where the results of the processes started during the previous lunar cycle are emerging. The current full moon is a blue moon, as it occurs in the same sign as the full moon of 21st of March.
Mercury entered in Aries on the 17th of April 2019, and simultaneously it leaves the retrograde shadow. This is a long expected shift: things related to communication, travels, financial transactions will return to their normal pace.
The most important Astrological event of 2019 occured on the 6th of March: Uranus re-entered Taurus. Uranus spends in a sign cca 7 years, so this is a significant shift. Between the 16th of May – 6th of November 2018 when it visited briefly Taurus, we got some impressions about the atmosphere of this transit. Uranus is the planet of unpredictable changes and disruptions while Taurus is a slow, peaceful and security orientated Earth – sign : least to be said, the energy of the two cosmic principles don’t blend very well.
The sextile between Saturn and Neptune perfected for the first time on the 31th of January on the 14°54′ of Capricorn and Pisces. The sextile perfects for the second time on the 18th of June (Capricorn – Pisces 18°43′) and for the third time on the 8th of November ( Capricorn – Pisces 16°01) This is a beneficial aspect, combining the spiritual world, dreams, fantasies with common sense and substantial efforts to achieve tangible results. Since many things look too good to be true in 2019, this grounding transit is a real blessing.
