Aquarius Monthly Forecast for May 2017
Aquarians start the month with the Sun in comfort-loving Taurus, your 4th house of home and family. It's time to focus on the comforts of home, security and family members. You might even decide to go through family heirlooms, sentimental memorabilia, photos, collections and keepsakes. You'll be looking at ways to redecorate, clear clutter and bring harmony into the domestic scene. Demonstrate your integrity, generosity and leadership ability. Personal success and recognition can be awakened, while your actions will be a source of personal pride and ego-fulfilment for you. Pay attention to supervisors, authority figures and take the advice of those who may be older, more mature, or more experienced than yourself. Family gatherings, entertainment and inviting guests over for a meal are not out of the question. Your role and influence in the family boosts the need to assert and express yourself, but parents or other family members may be offended by arrogance or stubborn pride on your part. There may also be disputes over family property. Family pride, however, is high and family bonds are strengthened. Family support and the advantage of family assets or connections increase the determination to begin new ventures of your own at this time.
The Full Moon on the 10th comes in unstoppable Scorpio, driving your 10th house of career and ambitions. It's often called a Full Flower Moon in the northern hemisphere, as flowers spring forth in abundance. It is also knows as a Mother's Moon, Milk Moon, or Corn Planting Moon by some Algonquin tribes. This marks a time of increasing fertility with temperatures warm enough for safely bearing young, a near end to late frosts, and plants in bloom. Wesak, also spelt Vesak, is a day celebrated by Buddhists around the world at this time. It marks the Wesak Festival, celebrating the birth, teachings, enlightenment and passing away of the Lord Gautama Buddha. It is considered the most powerful Moon of the year, when great spiritual progress can be made.
The Full Moon energies enable you to achieve your ambitions in a big way. Your career, public image and reputation come into focus, but you need to find a balance with your relationships and the home front. Your emotions and ego will be stirred up, so try not to over-dramatize your role in relationships or exaggerate your abilities within your profession. Promote your abilities the best way you can and improve on your image, but keep it realistic. Business partnerships could come to the forefront but take note of agreements in case you cannot deliver your end of the deal, or get caught up in legal wrangles. An opportunity may present itself to move from your current home, or buy a new property.
On the 20th, the Sun moves into Gemini, your 5th house of romance, children and speculation. Your love life could take an about turn, or leave you feeling fickle over new attractions. You may be pulled into different directions when deciding on your choice between mental interests, fun and entertainment. What's the best alternative? You might enjoy a trip to see your favourite band, a theatre performance or a show at the local school of performing arts. Keep your recreational options open, as a celebration is lurking in the wings.
The 25th sees the New Moon in Gemini, your 5th house. The next two weeks see a more positive sense of your own uniqueness, an inner contentment perhaps. If troubling circumstances arise under this fortunate influence, you may escape at least some of the disappointment, anger, or dislocation you might otherwise have had to endure. If, on the other hand, current circumstances are good, your increased self-confidence and vitality make them even better. A good time to enjoy the world and your place in it. Why not get moving with a creative project, whether connected with children or just on your own path? It's a lucky phase, when good fortune is indicated. However, if you do make some cash through gambling or some other speculation, quit while you are ahead.
Mercury remains stationary in Aries, your 3rd house of local issues, early education and creative expression, before going direct on the 3rd after some weeks of retrograde motion. You are no doubt going to be busy sorting things out again. Targets of your increased efforts include business projects (especially sales), contacts with siblings, correspondence, educational meetings, neighbourhood activities, errands, or travel. Information and ideas are flowing. Your time and attention may also be taken up with such concerns as cars and other vehicles, computers, or mechanical and electrical equipment for your home or office. Take particular care while driving, avoiding speed and impulsiveness en route.
On the 16th, the Cosmic Messenger cruises forward into Taurus your 4th house, but remains in a shadow phase until the 21st. Home improvements could nevertheless face a setback if you have been waiting for repairs, workmen or contractors. Open your lines of communication with family members; discuss pertinent agreements, moves and property, because things will really start happening after the 21st. BTW, this may be an opportune time to sort through memorabilia, old magazines, photos and historical family documents.
The Goddess Venus travels through your 3rd house all month, following a lengthy retrograde phase. As time slowly marches on (and Venus speeds up!), you'll find that flattery, charm, and a sense of humour can lighten the load a lot. If the chemistry is right you should have no trouble in gaining favors from others. Relations with neighbours and other locals stabilize and become more enjoyable. If such contacts have been troubled in the past this is a good time to improve them. You may also have a greater urge improve relationships with brothers, sisters, cousins and in-laws. Why not visit or contact nieces or nephews away at college? However, some of your best social opportunities these days are right in your immediate environment.
Mighty Mars remains in Gemini, your 3rd house all month. The physically energized atmosphere surrounding you will generate many communications and activities, especially with siblings and neighbours. Swamped with information and ideas, you'll also come up with an increasing number of your own. Travel and transportation are in the air and can involve anything from a concern with public transport to planning or taking a trip, or the purchase or sale of a car. The opportunity emerges to develop new skills with machinery or computers. Other potential projects include writing or design, or arts and crafts geared toward business enterprises or that will serve a definite function. You are apt to be more of a doer than a thinker this month -- eager to turn ideas into physical reality and more than ready to speak your mind. If words do not suffice, you will not hesitate to use physical means to express your feelings. Should unfortunate elements enter the frame you may be tempted to react physically and demonstrate your anger and frustration. Notwithstanding, don't fall victim to irritating types who resort to physical retaliation. Rash action now can cause accidents, especially burns, cuts, or mishaps while driving.
This will be a significant phase for the Water Bearer, because the North Node/ South Node axis, known as the Dragon's Head and Tail, is changing signs. Retrograding into Leo your house of marriage, partnership and open confrontation, the True Node completes its karmic journey on May 9th, passing through the critical first degree of Virgo. The Mean Node has already moved into Leo on April 29th, but the power of the moment is undeniable. Since the Moon's Nodes are an axis, whenever the North Node changes signs, the South Node also changes, in the opposing degree into the opposite sign. The movement of the North Node into Leo and the South Node into Aquarius sets the measure of karma over the next eighteen months.
