May Femastrology 2018
By Victoria Bearden
The Sun in Taurus highlights our physical reality. Earthy Taurus is linked to our bodies, the land, food, shelter, and nature. Taurus is the sign most associated with planet Earth herself, presiding over fertility and abundance. The emphasis on Earth Energy this month will show us where we need to grow and change in terms of how we nourish ourselves, and how we relate to our home, Mother Earth. It’s time to get more in tune with our material and physical wellbeing. It is easy to see that human beings still have a long way to go when it comes to re-connecting to the natural world, which we are a part of, not apart from. Now, more than ever, we need to take responsibility for our impact on the environment.
The Sun in Taurus asks us these questions: Are you in touch with your body? Do you need to be more grounded? Do you have a positive relationship with the material world and money? Are you in tune with your sensuality? Would you like to be more connected with nature? Do you feel good about the food you eat, and how it affects you? How can you help the world become a “greener” place? With the Sun in Taurus and Saturn in Capricorn, we have a chance to merge the principles of abundance and realism. Taurus wants to experience the physical world to the fullest. Good food, good sex, comfort, and security. Capricorn wants the same things, but puts security first, and knows work is required to live “the good life.” If we meld these principles, we can learn to enjoy what the world has to offer in a responsible and conscious way. We can also learn how to share our wealth, instead of becoming possessive, selfish, and materialistic.
May 1, 2018 is Beltane, the ancient Celtic festival of May Day. It represents the peak of Spring and the beginning of Summer. Earth energies are at their strongest and most active. It is a time to plant seeds and begin new undertakings.
Uranus enters Taurus on May 15, 2018. This is BIG! Uranus is the planet of change and revolution. It stays in each sign of the zodiac for about 7 years. The last time it was in Taurus started in 1935! The world was changing a lot at that time, most notably was the rise of Nazism and Hitler in Germany. Much has changed in the world since then…but has it really? Perhaps we need to review some of the lessons humanity learned during the last go around of Uranus in Taurus! We don’t need another World War.
The Uranus in Taurus revolution is directly connected to our relationship and impact on planet Earth. We will undoubtedly see more and more evidence of our effect on the planet, and our need to make radical changes in our collective habits, behaviors, and beliefs. There will be many breakthroughs in the next 7 years related to food production, green technology, and the environment. And not a moment too soon, as unstable conditions we have created demand solutions! May the rise of the Divine Feminine show us the way.
We could see some major “Earth Changes” with the onset of Uranus in Taurus. The very day Uranus went into Aries, on March 11, 2011, there was a 9.0 earthquake that hit Japan, which triggered the largest nuclear accident in history. I am certainly hoping we don’t see something of this nature, but there is often a powerful “signature event” associated with these planetary movements. Many astrologers believe Uranus in Taurus from 2018-2026 will stimulate massive restructuring and shake up of global financial institutions. This may sound unsettling, but ultimately, this period could give rise to a more “earth-centered” consciousness and value set, perhaps out of shear necessity.
There’s a New Moon at 24° Taurus on Tuesday, May 15, 2018. New Moons represent a clean slate and a chance to renew our intentions. This New Moon has even more significance, with Uranus going into Taurus on the same day. Use this powerful energy to reignite your Kundalini energy. Connect to your physical body, and your divine creative power. Embrace the radiant forces of life stirring within your own being. There is a strong force of liberation at work today, and you can channel this into whatever it is you wish to manifest. This would be a profound day for meditation, ritual, prayer, creativity, and healing. Venus ruled Taurus is associated with Earth Goddess energy.
The Sun enters Air Sign Gemini on May 21, 2018, signaling a time of increased communication and activity. This is great for learning and networking.
There’s a Full Moon at 08° Sagittarius on Tuesday, May 29, 2018. The Full Moon in Sagittarius sparks our need for freedom and truth. The Sun in Gemini represents our ability to learn and communicate. The Full Moon in Sagittarius is the doorway to use our intelligence to support the higher mind and expanded awareness. Sagittarius energy is also a lot of fun, so go have an adventure!
Opportunity Days: May 10, 15, 16, 19, 23, 25, 26, 27, and 28
