22 October-21 November
You have a very boisterous, funny, pretty fabulous time during the first eight days of May. Complaints are minimal and are mostly treated as jokes or goof-ups. And you and your friends, family, and colleagues NEED a break from the humdrum battlefield known as "reality," whatever that happens to be for you. Ask a random group of ten people and you'll get answers that never even occurred to you. Reality is a state of mind. Once you wrap your head around that, you'll have a lot more control of your reality than you thought possible. The giggles and laughter die down on the 9th when the first of two Eclipses occurs. Eclipses are serious business, especially in your case, because they continue not just for the day but for the next six months. Since the Solar Eclipse/New Moon on the 9th occur in your partnership sector, you're concerned about a partner's ability to steer the ship in your absence, and you're also concerned about a loved one's health. It appears that something needs to be done ASAP, and the 9th is far better than waiting for Mother's Day, birthdays, and the next Eclipse on the 25th. If you wait until the 25th and this medical/health issue involves blood, there may be more blood on the 25th, making an uncomfortable situation even worse. It's best to get this done and over with on or before the 9th. That way your partner or loved one can heal faster and be better off. Plus, Venus moves into Gemini on the 9th suggesting that although there will be some swelling, it's mostly normal fluid and will be drained. The week between Mother's Day and the 20th is fraught with time problems, delays, disappointments, and almost forgot: stress! That is the last thing you need. The 20th is kind of remarkable in that it's one of a series of exact Uranus/Pluto squares. There will be a grand total of seven. The one that occurs on the 20th is number 3. This phase began last year and will continue until March 16, 2015. This phase is not the time to bully others, make idle threats, or attempt to frighten others into doing things YOUR WAY – or else. On the 20th, something fun and wonderful occurs, too: the Sun moves into Gemini – ka-CHING! More money starts pouring in from an investment you'd given up on. This brings up to the second and final Eclipse this month on May 25th. It's a Penumbral Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon in Sagittarius. More ka-CHING – even if it's occurring in another country. Money is the universal language, just like numbers. You've got the numbers and the money on your side now. On the 27th, BONNIE HUTTON'S BIRTHDAY, you might get out of the wrong side of the bed early on but rise to the occasion as the day turns into romantic night. You and the VIP of your heart and soul talk things out and reach an agreement that you're both excited about! Thank Laksmi for happy endings!! On Friday, the 31st, Mercury moves into Cancer and Mars moves into Gemini. This makes you almost professorial in a very appealing, friendly luscious kind of way. Ooh, baby, things are gonna get easier…. Monthly touchstone: Black Diamond (large).
