May is the month in New England when we smile more and move out of the deep hibernation of winter and early spring.

The beaches will open on Memorial Day May 27th with more people wanting to be near the ocean waters to relax and unwind. My favorite time of the year being a Pisces.

Water signs love to be near water to calm their sensitive nerves down.

Just when you think Aries is calming down from so much attention in April, Mars moved into Aries on April 30th starting off May with warrior energies and a physical push forward.

The month of April would have been frustrating for those with Sun, Moon, rising or planets in Aries because of the only total eclipse of 2024 in Aries and Mercury in retrograde motion also in Aries.

This month will seem like a picnic compared to April especially around May 13th when Mercury completely leaves its retrograde shadow.

Communication breakdowns and emotional frustration experienced in April for the signs of Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn will smooth out and move forward without as much inner emotional turmoil and obstacles in the way of fulfilling desires.

Chiron, the wounded healer, is showing the signs of Aries and Libra, how to heal relationship issues. This is the time to make those changes in your personal and professional life that you avoided over the last year.

Mars will stay in Aries till June 9th, and it may take that long for the wars in the world to calm down. Mars will enter the sign of Taurus on June 9th, and this is much better for stability.

I do give more hope in my kindle book “Full Moon Messages from the Pleiadians” available on Amazon. Just put the title in the search engine of Amazon. All photos are created by award winning photographer Endre Balogh. Go to for more of his works.

Pluto in Aquarius brings U.F.O. contact sometime between 2024 to 2044. More evolved E.T. races will bring knowledge and technologies to restore balance on this planet. They are not here to save us. They are here to assist us in the next evolutionary process of planet Earth.

Pluto stations retrograde in Aquarius on May 1st at 1:46PM EST, at two degrees. For those of you who have Sun, Moon, rising or planets in Aquarius in the first three degrees of Aquarius, you are moving deeper into the hidden world of the sub-conscious mind.

Healing Pluto issues can help with a therapist and holistic healthcare practitioner for the signs of Capricorn and Aquarius. Capricorns have taken on most of this deep reflective energy since 2008.

Aquarius is asking itself; how can I move forward? What adjustments do I need to make for my life to continue in a more independent and unique way?

Aquarius may be thinking of working freelance or working for a small business rather than the large cooperate world. They may invent a new way of life in some area that is marketable for the public.

They may also want to be surrounded by new relationships that support their own evolution of growth rather than feeling held back by others.

New relationships will manifest when Pluto stations direct on October 12th, 2024, through the spring of 2026 for the signs of Aquarius, Leo, Scorpio, and Taurus for those who have Sun, Moon, rising or planets in the first few degrees of these signs.

It will be obvious by the middle of October which relationships or job they want to move forward with.

Pluto moving back into Capricorn, FOR THE LAST TIME, from September 2nd till November 19th, puts a strain on big business and big government. People want self-empowerment, Pluto in Aquarius, not over empowerment by any large institution, Capricorn.

Humanitarian aid around the world in one form or another will look stuck, as it has already, for those who really need help. This will be a hot topic in this evectional year in America as well as all the topics ruled by Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pluto.

Pluto rules anything underground that is hidden from view such as tunnels, societies that live underground like U.F.O. bases in the ocean floors, drug cartels, petroleum oil, sex trafficking, abortion, A.I. , computer hackers, pornography, big business and government corruption, kidnappings, underground waste, atomic power, phobias and obsessions, birth and death issues, isolation, bacteria and viruses.

These topics will need to be healed as the main concern of humans is their safety this evectional year. Chiron, the wounded healer, in the heart of the Sun on the Total new Moon Eclipse of April 8th, is asking the world to heal its wounds from violence (Aries).

Since the eclipse energy runs till October 2, 2024, it forces President Biden to deal with Scorpio/Pluto issues, he is a Scorpio, to help Americans feel safer or it could cause him the election.

Gun violence and violence internationally that we are investing in needs to be in a balanced state. Protests are breaking out in several countries. People’s voices will be heard or either candidate running for President in America will have uncommitted voters.

This is a new way to vote one’s own power as Pluto in Aquarius does not enjoy being told how to run their lives and Aquarius is humanitarian as well as Pisces. We have both Neptune and Saturn in Pisces presently.

We have a new Moon in Taurus on May 7th at 18 degrees. (11:22PM EST). If you have Sun, Moon, rising or planets in Taurus, you are trying to find physical balance in all areas of your life especially with finances.

Both the new and full Moon’s have little tensions in them. I have not seen this for several months if not years. May is so much different than April AFTER May 13th. It will take till May 13th to brush the dust-off April chaos.

Uranus has been in Taurus over the last four years and Taurus does not enjoy Uranus. Taurus wants stability and growth in the physical world. Uranus wants constant change and new innovative ways to increase financial gains.

Jupiter, the planet of good fortune and expansion, has been protecting Taurus over the last year but Jupiter will move into Gemini on May 25th and the protection that Taurus had is leaving.

This means that those who have Taurus energy in their charts need to get most of their ducks in a row by May 25th or they could have a financial fall out. If you have debt, find a relative or friend who can help you during this time so you can have peace of mind.

This new Moon has Venus, Sun, Moon, Uranus, and Jupiter all in Taurus. Creative energies are high for those with Taurus signatures in their birth chart. Look to the house ruled by Taurus and see which areas of life you are looking for stability.

Try not to hang on to the material world of form in a way that is unhealthy for yourself and others around you. Money and material possessions do not bring peace of mind. Learn meditation from me so you can transcend any attachments to the material world.


Another affirmation is “I CAN GIVE UP THE STRUGGLE AND LIVE.” The new Moon chart does show promise for opportunities that can allow anyone in financial troubles to find a way to stabilize these troubles by May 25th.

Happy Mother’s Day on May 12th:

Combined with all the Earth element energies, this is such a lovely Mother’s Day.

Flowers and kindness are needed these days in the family of nations. The song I wrote, “The World Needs a Mother” is so appropriate for this day. I miss my mom who passed away on May 27, 2023.

Mercury enters Taurus on May 14th and joins all the other planets already mentioned. Mercury is out of its retrograde shadow and ready to apply more practical thinking to the lives of those who have Taurus energies.

All the issues I have already mentioned will be more organized and thought out until Mercury leaves Taurus on June 3rd.

Sun enters the communication sign of Gemini on May 20th. Gemini is the muti tasker and allows communication to flow. Students will find they are ready for exams and put all their homework to practice.

Gemini’s opposite sign is Sagittarius, and the full Moon on May 23rd is in the sign of Sagittarius. Gemini rules grades K through high school years. Sagittarius rules your college years.

The full Moon is highly active with sextiles, opportunities, and trine’s, wind at your back for the signs of Taurus, Gemini, Sagittarius, Aquarius, Pisces, and Cancer.

A grand trine in two water signs, Cancer, and Pisces, plus a fire sign, will experience a more graceful period, May 23rd till June 6th. Things just seem to fall into place.

Venus and Jupiter are on top of each other in the sign of Taurus and close to the Sun in Gemini on this full Moon offering financial blessings and romance for the sign of Taurus, Gemini, and Sagittarius.

Sagittarius does rule immigration, foreign lands, foreign languages so we will see the spotlight on international issues. Gemini and Sagittarius provide negotiation skills.

Look to May 23rd to June 6th for better communications between countries. Immigration will be in the spotlight and maybe something finally done about it.

Memorial Day is on May 27th. It’s time to think about ending the school year, if it hasn’t already ended for some students, looking forward to a wonderful summer vacation to relax and unwind.

" Inner Grace Meditation" is about divine grace. Divine grace is not something you look for or try to make happen. You have the intention to close your eyes and start to withdraw from your environment and let the laws of gravity gracefully take you to the bliss that is deep down inside of you. Deep rest, deeper than deep sleep, allows stress to leave you. The gift of divine grace or divine judgment is an automatic by product of letting go and NOT CONCENTRATING so much. Simplicity. 

Create a space in the thought process via sound “Mantra” and the gift of grace melts tensions away so you’re ready for the world. 

 And, when the world takes too much of you, you just go back to that quiet space between thoughts. The kind of space that is unbounded. Without any judgments. The space of divine grace that guides you in your life. A gift that you didn't consciously ask for, but it showed up in moments all on its own. Without trying and concentrating.”
