The month of May is ready to burst with beauty. Flowers, trees blooming, birds chirping, people preparing gardens and the Sun warming up our lives so desperately needed from all the social dysfunction that has been going on for months.
The planetary signatures for May are highly active. Jupiter will enter Pisces and leave Aquarius for a while, a Total full Moon lunar eclipse, Saturn turns retrograde in Aquarius and by the end of the month Mercury stations retrograde.
We start off May with Mercury moving into the sign of Gemini on May 3rd and then Venus moves into Gemini on May 8th. It’s time to enjoy conversation with plenty of metal stimulation.
Mercury takes a few weeks to move into a new sign but because Mercury will turn retrograde at the end of the month at 24 degrees of Gemini, it’s travel through Gemini will be until July 12th, 2021. That’s a long conversation with our active mind.
The news media will have lots to say and with a new Moon in Taurus on May 11th, it is just what we need to calm things down after spending the first 11 days of this month on a roller coaster ride of thoughts running wild in our minds.
If you have Sun in Gemini, Moon or rising, you feel restless until the full Moon. It will take until July 12th for the sign of Gemini to reflect on what they really want. By the end of this month, they will go through a few situations in life that bring them more inward.
They may be able to skate through life on the surface, but the ice has a crack in it and hopefully not a hole depending on what life situations they had gone through throughout the month of May. By the end of May, they will want to deal with life on a deeper level of their being than they are used too.
By July 12th, the sign of Gemini will have gone through what may seem like a few lifetimes of experience and will end up being more mature when Mercury stations direct on June 22nd. It will take till July 12th for Mercury to be out of its retrograde shadow.
It’s time for those with Gemini energies to evolve and mature spiritually and this requires a quieter mind where thoughts are calmer.
Being near nature’s stillness is the perfect place for the sign of Gemini this month and through the middle of July. Be near water and breathe deeply when the mind and nervous system is too stressed. Listen to the birds and observe the stillness of trees.
Happy Mother’s Day on May 9th. Mother Earth is also thanked as the new Moon in Taurus on May 11th happens at 3PM EDT at 21 degrees. It’s a perfect time for those with Sun, Moon or rising in Taurus to start new beginnings.
With the mind being very sharp because Mercury, the North node and Venus are all in Gemini, it allows the sluggish energy of Taurus to move quickly and gain the opportunity of abundance.
Anyone involved in the health industry will benefit as the new moon trines the rising sign of Virgo in this new moon Taurus chart.
Death is still active in several countries from the virus as Saturn in Aquarius squares both luminaries and Uranus. This shows the physical world (Taurus) having unexpected issues (Uranus) that require serious attentions (Saturn).
Pluto is trine to both luminaries so there is some help for countries like Brazil, India and Canada that have seen a rise in deaths. The countries with the most deaths are America, Brazil, Mexico, India, UK and Canada.
Tenison is there in this new Moon chart but the South Node in Sagittarius adds some comfort filling in a T-Square. I feel that by the Total full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius on May 26th, the international countries will have needed vaccine’s to calm things down.
Let us all send light and prayers to countries that desperately need help but cannot afford it. It could take till middle of November to have enough vaccines for countries that need it now.
Practical conversations will continue surrounding mass shootings and racial injustice in the first half of May. New laws will be passed to protect everyone. My predictions that mass shootings would be an issue in April was true.
The medical community has been overworked and Mars in Cancer, until June 12trh, shows a need for healthcare workers to rest and rejuvenate so they are not risking their health as well. Nurses and doctors are on the edge of just walking away as the psychological, emotional and spiritual stress has been enough over the last 14 months.
By the end of this month, over 60% of Americans will most likely be vaccinated, at least the first shot, and for those who are smarter, they will be taking more high-quality vitamin and mineral supplements to create a stronger immune system. Tune into Andrew Lessman on HSN for education on nutritional supplementation that is high quality. Over 70% of Americans who get covid are Vitamin D3 deficient.
Jupiter will move into the sign of Pisces On May 13th and Pisces gets a chance to have good luck on their side. Jupiter will stay in Pisces till July 29th, 2021 and will move back into the sign of Aquarius.
Jupiter will move back into Pisces at the end of December of 2021 and remain in the sign of Pisces for a whole year. Jupiter feels very comfortable in the sign of Pisces as it is the classical ruler of Pisces.
If you have Sun, Moon, rising or planets in Pisces, your time has come to manifest what you want. Jupiter brings freedom and good luck. Expanding your life and feeling like things are going your way without much effort is the feeling of life for those with Pisces energies.
Jupiter can also create too good of a time so make sure your feet are on the ground Pisces. Do not overeat, over drink, overspend, etc. Enjoy yourself till the July 29th and look forward to the end of December when Jupiter will stay in Pisces for most of 2022.
Whatever happens from May 13th till July 29th, will be a clue as to what areas of your life are being blessed. Look to your natal birth chart to see where your Pisces energy is. The house or houses ruled by Jupiter and Pisces will bring good luck and fortune to you soon.
There is so much to talk about this month so I will try to keep it as short as possible.
The Sun moves into the sign of Gemini on May 20th and just when Gemini was about to relax, another wave of Gemini energy takes over.
Remember what I said at the beginning of this May forecast. Take the time to be near nature, breath deeply, drink plenty of water, breath in aroma oils to calm the mind down, walk as this energy is active till July 7th when Mercury will return to its stationary retrograde degree that started on May 29th.
Saturn turns retrograde on May 23rd and we have the task master wanting to take a sit and wait approach till it stations direct on October 11, 2021.
Saturn in Aquarius is trying to find a way to serve the community through organizations in both federal, state and local groups. There is a settled feeling with this as Saturn has already set up a relationship between federal, state and local communities when it was in direct motion from September 29, 2020 till May 23rd, 2021. This is good.
We have our first and only Total full Moon Lunar Eclipse of 2021 at 5 degrees of Sagittarius on May 26th at 7:14AM EDT. The sign of Sagittarius is getting triggered by a few solar eclipses since December of 2020 when we had a Total new Moon Solar eclipse on December 14th that conjuncted the galactic center.
Both Sagittarius and Gemini are rocking, and it will be hard for either sign to find stability as their lives grow at a pace much too fast to keep up with. Gemini’s want to muti task to much and Sagittarius wants to much freedom.
This energy reminds me of news anchors on CNN or FOX who are reading information coming in while interviewing a guest. It’s obvious they are overloaded with information and this will lead to mental health issues or other health issues down the line. Its disrespectful to the audience, us, to watch the eyes and minds of these anchors rolling around all over the place while interviewing a guest.
In this Total full Moon Lunar Eclipse chart, international news is high, and Eclipses last for 6 months and this eclipse chart shows conversation on other countries that are reporting the need for vaccines as well as more help from health professionals as the pandemic has already hit Brazil, India and other countries harder than expected.
We will be hearing lots of information about this from May 26th till November of 2021. By the middle of August, when the Sun enters Virgo and fills in a stressful T-square, things will calm down and balance will return to the international countries that have been dealing with death at their doorstep.
This Total Lunar Eclipse has Sun, North Node, Venus and Mercury in Gemini with Sagittarius opposing the Sun. Lot’s of attentions on education from K1 all the way through college.
Gemini’s and Sagittarians may find themselves going back to school or taking up new knowledge to help them reach new goals in life.
Personal relationships will be up and down in a very extreme way for both signs as too much freedoms and multi-tasking in relationships can lead to broken hearts. "Where does my heart beat now" by Celine Dion may be the song for those with Gemini and Sagittarius energy in their charts till end of November 2021.
Mercury turns retrograde on May 29th at 6:34PM EDT in Gemini and as mentioned earlier in this forecast, Gemini is ready to take a good look inside and come to some conclusions by the middle of July about all areas of their life.
Happy Memorial Day on May 31st as the official start of 2021 Summer is here. It’s time to get outside and enjoy ourselves with less fear than last summer.
Blessings, Lou Valentino.
