This begins one of the most abundant, fertile and upbeat periods of the year that will extend through early June – and the theme is expansion! Get ready to spread your wings and stretch, especially if you feel contracted or just ready to fly…

May 17 – Mercury square Pluto activates CSI energy that uncovers secrets or hidden agendas that change the playing field, it can facilitate breakthroughs if you’re doing shadow work or it can bring a difficult conversation that reveals a deep truth. The square implies info that’s intense or heavy, but knowing it will align you with a reality that will ultimately empower you.

May 18 – We have a dynamic new beginning with two conjunctions: Venus- Uranus at 23 o Taurus and Sun-Jupiter at 28o Taurus.

Venus-Uranus is Divine Feminine and The Great Awakener. This brings surprises that can be exhilarating; either you act from the heart or it opens your heart, but it’s a shake up. You can manifest love, your values or creativity with a style twist by taking a risk to honor a hidden aspect of yourself that’s a radical departure from your usual presentation. Illuminate your heart’s desire; show up, have fun and express yourself!

The Sun-Jupiter expands your horizons focusing on the big picture, possibilities, optimism, faith and inspiration. The Jupiter-Uranus magic is still in the air and you will magnetize blessings into your life if you stay high and expect the best going forward. Jupiter is considered lucky because when you have total conviction that things will work out for you, they often do. Jupiter needs freedom, so notice if you feel constricted in any way and if so, this is an area that is ripe for change going forward. Make a note to Self to course correct this…

May 19 – Sun sextile Neptune is an aspect of reverence and devotion, creativity or spiritual practice. All that is right-brained and in flow, receptive, Divine Love, rest, Wu Wei (Law of Least Effort), All That Is. Dreams, visioning, channeling, meditating. Peace and blessings.

May 19 – Mars conjunct North Node – The Maverick/Warrior in Aries with The North Node of Destiny indicates fighting for a cause or initiating something that moves you toward a higher purpose. Mars in Aries is direct, assertive and will take a stand or set a boundary. You’ll know what it means if this applies to you and it will be for your Greater Good.

May 20 – Sun in Gemini – The Sun enters the mental sign of Gemini – flexible, curious, chatty, sometimes scattered energy of flying around from one thing to

the next, multi-tasking and socializing. Gemini is light and lively, all about communication, info, connection and networking. Data, meetings, Zoom, cell phones, social media, meetups – any way we can connect and share info, let’s do it! It loves to think, read, talk, write and communicate, but it can get distracted by the next bright, shiny object, so focus and completion can be a challenge. Less can be more…

May 22 – Sun trine Pluto – If you want to get something done that requires intense focus and heavy lifting, today’s energy supports you. Especially with the Sun in easily distracted Gemini, a trine with Pluto will anchor your attention into the deep where you can explore hidden realms and accomplish much more than usual. Very powerful. May bring you into contact with powerful people.

May 23 – As the Full Moon in Sagittarius occurs this morning, three other sweet aspects take place, leaving Taurus with a blessing before Venus and Jupiter move into Gemini, joining the Sun.

May 23 – Full Moon in Sagittarius @ 2o 55′ – 6:53am PDT

Sagittarius rules the meaning of life, high ideals, Higher Truth, belief systems and expansion. It’s the big picture, enthusiasm and optimism, and it can provide you with the confidence to move ahead where you were reluctant before.

This is a good time to reconsider your life and see what truth you need to look at or speak up about. What matters most right now that you want to focus on. Your truth may be about focusing on a vision for your life. If there an area of life in which you’d like to expand or a move you’ve been reluctant to make that speaks to a calling from deep within, this is a good time to take an action.

Pluto sextiles the New Moon, bringing its power and transformational energy for support and stability.

Venus-Jupiter sextile Neptune, brings peace, earthly blessings and Divine blessings. This is as good as it gets, with beauty and grace, love and possibility, infinite potential, human love and dreams (Neptune).

Venus-Jupiter is 3D gifts, love and opportunities, while Neptune is Divine Love and Oneness, elevating it all to a higher dimension that is for the Greater Good. It’s beautiful to dream your dream (Neptune), but you ultimately have to take actions to make it real. No rush… just know that the vision and dream are Step 1.

Venus in Gemini until June 17 – cooperative, charming, social, chatty, friendly, superficial, flexible and fun. Happy to get along and mingle with others in way that is harmonious.

May 25, 2024 – May 2025 – Jupiter in Gemini – After a year in slow, earthy Taurus, happy, lucky, Jupiter moves into light, airy Gemini, sign of communication, info, education, community and social media for a year, expanding everything it touches – and Gemini gets around and around and around!

Jupiter wants to expand and Gemini wants to connect, so there will be rapid progress in all forms of communication, tech, AI, data sharing, and every way in which we are in connection. If you think there’s too much info now (Gemini), get ready for more, more, more (Jupiter)! You’ll be so happy to hug a tree and walk in the grass, appreciating the analog life :))

Enjoy all the abundance and opportunities that you can allow yourself to embody and embrace. The potential is limitless – the limits are yours. Stretch, stretch, stretch!

Know that if you dream it, it is meant to be yours – otherwise, it wouldn’t be in your consciousness…

Don’t let your ego interfere with what’s unfolding by attaching to your version of how things should be – rather, observe from your Higher Self Guidance, and witness the miracles that occur when you don’t try to control everything. It’s a practice :))

Feel the freedom in releasing old identities that no longer fit you. Releasing is part of what allows for your expansion – and enjoy this extraordinary grace.

As always, I am grateful for your presence on our journey together.

Current Astro Events – May 10, 2024

Written by Lisa E Zimmerman

May 10 – The final week of Taurus is fertile, ripe with New Moon and Jupiter- Uranus possibilities, as your personal orientation is still in flux after all the chaotic energy. Mercury moves through the final degrees of its Retrograde path before entering fresh terrain on Monday, allowing for a new level of clarity informed by all you’ve learned the past few months, with greater awakening to follow as the weeks unfold.

Neptune (Ruler of Pisces) is at 29o – the final degree of the zodiac in this multi- dimensional, transcendent energy. Attune to your Inner Guidance, Higher Vision, imagination, intuition, compassion and right brain. Neptune will be at 29o for two months and then Retrograde, remaining in Pisces until 2025.

Pisces rules Neptune (Higher Consciousness, Oneness, dreams) and Saturn (reality, structure, manifesting). Dream, meditate, be in nature, be creative, do your spiritual practices until your dream drops in. If you feel lost, something is likely unwinding, which is an opening. Relax into it and flow with the energy the best you can, but don’t push because that won’t work. Wu Wei; practice allowing trust in the rhythm of your personal unfolding.

May 13 – The Sun conjoins Uranus exactly today, but the Sun is 2o from Uranus on May 10, and it’s already percolating. Uranus is the Great Awakener, a disrupter here to break up stale energies and wake you up if you are sleepwalking through any area of your life. Uranus seeks freedom, space and often rebellion from patterns or agreements you have adopted along the way that are blocking your evolution.

The Sun-Uranus energizes your Higher Mind, genius, Authentic Self – anything that has been suppressed that is a true expression of you, or maybe something triggered to go in an unusual direction. Expect the unexpected, from yourself or others – especially regarding anything you’ve been tolerating or if you’ve been dishonest (people pleasing) in a relationship. This can be like truth serum or a plot twist, which can be shocking – or liberating, or both. If you are faced with a sudden change, be as flexible as possible.

If there’s something you’ve been wanting to try or do, this is a good time to take a risk, innovate, dare to step out beyond your familiar boundaries. The wind is at your back. If you feel restricted, bored or just want to stretch and need to break free in some area of your life, here you go!

May 13 – Mercury leaves its shadow and it is now in unexplored territory, so any insights you have from your recent experiences can be applied to the upcoming info you receive. Stay tuned… this should be exciting, especially with Uranus (the higher octave of Mercury) conjunct the Sun on the same day! Lots of stimulating mental energy – pay attention to messages, conversations, what you read, see and hear, and downloads coming through…

May 13 – Saturn sextile Venus. This stabilizes the energy following the Sun- Uranus conjunction, which can help you integrate or align with any changes, movement or unfamiliar events, experiences, paradigms or people who you come in contact with in this new setup. Beyond Sun-Uranus, Venus-Saturn brings sane relationships, commitment, harmonious, responsible people, where your well being is in good hands. Peace. A nice counter-balance for the excitement of Sun-Uranus, especially for your nervous system…

May 15 – Mercury in Taurus. Now Mercury leaves Aries (after two months), as Taurus will take practical steps to make things manifest – and it is patient, it is in no rush. So Mercury will have a new rhythm until June 3 and it will be much more relaxed. Nice!

This week is one of curiosity, exploration and discovery. Where are you? Leaving the chaos, the Eclipse Wormhole, the retread of Mercury Retrograde shadow onto a path with no tracks yet… like freshly fallen snow. With Neptune at 29o. Practice tuning in to your Inner Guidance and Higher Consciousness to see what you experience.

Wherever you think you’re going, allow incoming messages to inform you. There is no rush. Everything happens in Divine Timing. Always.

The second half of the month is full of beneficial aspects that will bring youopportunities and blessings. Really extraordinary, stacked with Goodness.

We are in virgin territory now, a new land where we’ve never been before. Therefore, you must chart your own course, so dream a BIG dream for yourself.

You came to be here at this transformational time as we are turning a major corner – and you have a magical gift to share that NO ONE has like you do.

Don’t put yourself in a box and don’t minimize your gift with self-doubt or self- judgment. You deprive the world when you do that. Please be available.

The Sun in Taurus is the Tree of Life, grounded and peaceful, seeking security and well being. The simple life. The physical world. Connection with the earth and honoring its beauty. Pluto (now Retrograde @ 2o Aquarius thru Oct 11) is continuing to deconstruct and reconfigure anything outdated in the early degrees of Aquarius and transforming a particular area of your life if it hits you personally – and you’ll feel it if it does.

May 3 – Retrograde Pluto sextiles Mars, giving you drive, focus and motivation, while Mercury is still in its Retrograde shadow and gaining speed to return to its usual pace on the New Moon.

May 7 @ 8:22pm PDT – The New Moon at 18o Taurus. We have now completed the Eclipse Wormhole and arrived in a new paradigm, as the journey through March-April have shape-shifted us and now it’s time for a new beginning, to set intentions for the dreams you want to manifest going forward.

Taurus is a builder, moving slowly and steadily with a plan. It is the energy of conscious obedience, attuned to your Inner Guidance, aligned with your heart to manifest abundance – and on this New Moon, it is supported by a profound planetary lineup!

Venus, the Sun, Moon, Uranus and Jupiter are all in Taurus – and supportive Saturn sextiles the New Moon, adding even more stability to the Taurus New Moon (which it loves). Yet Uranus and Jupiter bring another dimension to the picture – expansion, progress, innovative possibilities, stretching, opportunities.

Something new or unexpected was seeded on the Jupiter-Uranus conjunction of April 20, that will be activated later this month (if it hasn’t been already) in various ways, so this piece will be integral and active again and again. Stay tuned. It may be personal for you or it may be a collective experience.

Actually, the sky is the limit with Uranus-Jupiter! This duo can show up as the ultimate gift or a blindside (still the ultimate gift :)), but that’s only when needed to break up stale energy that’s blocking you from your Higher Good. Uranus is the Great Awakener, so I suggest you be proactive or Uranus will wake you up! Jupiter-Uranus isn’t always external – it can be a creative idea that arises from within you – or a circumstance, an opportunity, an offer or a meeting.

Taurus rules your values – what you value and how you value your Self. Everything in your life stems from this, so please give Self-honoring reverent consideration. Taurus loves comfort, pleasure, practical things and the material

world. I hope you treat yourself as the precious gift that you are and allow yourself to receive the blessings that flow your way.

A higher expression of Taurus energy is detachment – or non-attachment, as in the mind of the Buddha. Developing the skill of being unattached to things, people, outcomes, expectations, etc. and focusing on centering yourself inward will give you great stability, power, resilience and satisfaction. You can enjoy all life has to offer with less suffering when anything changes or leaves your life. This may require practice, but it will be worth it to drop the behaviors of control and codependency and learn to accept what is.

This is a week of fertility and opportunity. I urge you to set intentions for the New Moon and take actions to make your visions manifest. Bring them down to earth. You can multidimensionalize by embracing the higher dimensions, while operating in 3D with practical actions to manifest the vision for your future.

Enjoy. Appreciate. Slow down and be mindful as you participate in the cycle of creating and receiving the abundance that is available for you. Don’t block your Goodness with doubt.

Wishing you a week of peace, alignment, expansion and positive flow, as you honor your evolving Self.

Happy Mercury Direct! I’m sure it’s a relief to have the planet of communication, tech and commerce back in forward motion, although it’s not up to speed yet. After a long Retrograde in Aries, you can feel your mind coming back online as new solutions, connections, truths and info becomes accessible, and in flow as days go by.

Give it time to pick up speed before making major decisions, as more will be revealed with greater clarity at the close of the Eclipse Wormhole on the Taurus New Moon (May 7). Pay attention to your evolving consciousness and where you’re being lled, now that we’re past the Eclipse and Jupiter-Uranus conjunction.

April 28/29 – Mars conjunct Neptune in Pisces is Wu Wei energy, when you flow intuitively around obstacles. Also, it can be a time of surrender at 28o Pisces, the end of the zodiac, where you are meant to release anything you’re clinging to that has outlived its usefulness. You’ll know if this is you b/c you’ll feel drained by holding on to the old identity, beliefs, (fill in the blank) – and they will ultimately be swept away if they are meant to go.

Mars-Neptune aligns with spiritual practices, creative pursuits, leisure and being in nature. If a release is called for, bless it and let it go with reverence and gratitude. Avoid anything that lowers your frequency (substances, behaviors, relationships, dark media), as boundaries are flimsy and you are highly suggestible. Only the best and highest for you!

April 29 – May 23 – Venus in Taurus is in its domicile (home sign) of values, valuing your Self, $$ and love. Venus in Taurus is feminine, slow, sensual, attuned to the body, comfort, good food, as well as giving and receiving affection. Your basic security and material needs must be met for you to be content. Stop and smell the roses – appreciate the physical pleasures and sweet sensations of life, as you deepen your connection to abundance on all levels, knowing that it is yours to embody and embrace.

April 30 – June 9 – Mars in Aries (its domicile) is on fire to make decisions and take actions to get in the game and initiate something. However, we’re still just coming off of Mercury Rx and you may not have all the info yet or be up to speed

after the Mars-Neptune conjunction, so trust your gut and prepare for where you want to go when it is time for action. This is a courageous Mars that is highly motivated to take a risk and make something happen, so for the next six weeks in Aries, plan to make good use of it.

April 30/May 1 – Venus square Pluto is a power dynamic in relationships involving power, love, passion and $$ mingled in toxic combos, as well as magnetic attractions, manipulation and boundary violations. There is healing potential if people involved are willing to do the work – or a boundary must be set and enforced. Breakthroughs are possible, as squares bring things to a head, so this is an opportunity for integrating shadowy behaviors and reconnecting on a whole new level.

May 2 – Pluto Stations Retrograde to retrace the few degrees of futuristic Aquarius it has covered since it entered on Jan 20 – and it will back into traditional Capricorn on Sept 1 for the final time until Nov 19, when it will return to Aquarius for good until 2043. When Pluto leaves a sign, it announces its departure by deconstructing old structures – and when it enters a new sign, it announces its arrival with innovations and it reveals hidden agendas in both signs, which, you’ll notice is what’s happening now.

Over the past few years as Pluto has traversed from Capricorn to Aquarius (and back), your life may have been transformed in some way. If you are having a Pluto transit, a breakdown and rebirth of some kind is taking place, depending on the house and planets involved. But one thing is for sure – Pluto never leaves you the same as where it found you; you always come out stronger, wiser and more Authentic. The goal is to support your growth, evolution and move you into your power – with free access to your gifts, strengths, talents and resilience.

Don’t rush as you utilize the energies to carry you forward this week in the rhythm that is just right for you. Follow your Inner Guidance as you reorganize and rebalance anew. There is no hurry. All is in Divine Order and we are moving at the perfect pace, even when your ego tells you it’s slow. You’ll see :))

“When we walk like we are rushing, we print anxiety and sorrow on the earth. We have to walk in a way that we only print peace and serenity on the earth. Be aware of the contact between your feet and the earth. Walk as if you are kissing the earth with your feet.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh
