".... only someone who is ready for everything, who doesn't exclude any experience, even the most incomprehensible, will live the relationship with another person as something alive and will himself sound the depths of his own being." ~Rainer Maria RilkeLucky Aries
The first day of May -- May Day -- begins auspiciously with an Aries Moon, and two early morning lunar meet-ups, with lucky Jupiter and motivating Mars. This enchants your restless Aries Soul, and while it’s a winding down time (Dark Moon), you could feel deeply inspired. What big ideas are pressing on you? Where are you ready to break through?
This soulful state helps you make the most of the Dark Moon, and pulling new possibilities from the great void. It’s wonderfully symbolic, since the New Moon in earth sign Taurus (May 3rd) comes next for earthing your enthusiasms. This time feels different, with so much cosmic backing in your sign.
Jupiter is with you all month, and until June 5th. It’s for luck, and growth in whatever area you put effort into. You go far now, astonishingly far, if you apply yourself.
The good fortune that comes with Jupiter, can seem like it’s triggering a brand new life. That’s because Uranus in early degrees of Aries quickens the pace. The hits keep coming. These startling events may seem “bad” at first, but shock you out of limiting situations or relationships you’ve outgrown.
You’ve got the chance now to experiment, reinvent yourself, push into new ground, travel light and live closer to your true impulses. Your own genius bursts out, and can’t be stuffed back in the box. It’s a time for daring growth that surprises you and everyone around you. Expect some shocking plot twists, too.Rooting In
Venus, Mars and Mercury are in your sign to mid-May, before going into the earth sign Taurus. Here’s another rhythm of seeking to settle the impulses coursing through your energetic body.
That’s a theme for the whole year and the foreseeable future. It’s taking what’s innovative, and fresh from the Source, and making it real in some way.Libra, Your Earth Sign
In mythic astrologer John Lash’s Star Zodiac (or Stellar Zodiac), your Earth sign is Libra. He defines the Sun as your “style” and the Earth as your worldly “effect.” This is key to embracing Saturn, the mirror of the Other, in the air sign Libra.
In these years to 2012, Saturn is playing an oppositional role to your Sun, in this sign Libra. You learn about the effect of your style (Arien), through the planetary tough teacher Saturn. You have cosmic feedback about the impression you make, by the reactions of others. Every single encounter is a chance to grow and know yourself better.
Saturn in its opposition to all this exuberant Aries energy keeps you from going too far, too fast. You can discern when to wait for better timing, or another kind of opportunity.
It’s a great time of challenge for Aries, but one where your character is made for life. You let go of relating patterns that only bring you grief. Saturn has a maturing effect, and is a guide to being wise in relationships.
By its nature, your sign is disruptive to the balance. But you lead the way to fresher, more alive ways of being in harmony. With the great teacher Saturn, you refine your Aries Style. You discern when to turn it on full blast, and when to respect the rhythm of the moment.Avoid Burnout
The high spirited energies make it tempting to Go, Go, Go. But keep in mind, You've got to pace yourself for the long haul, and keep your reserves filled. Make time for relaxation, and refilling the well. Find the balance, with time alone, music, books that transport you.
Look to the water element in May, with long baths and trips to the ocean. Make a koi pond, or set up a birdbath in your yard. Stay well hydrated, to minimize the risk of headaches (which is an Aries vulnerability).Your Gifts Now:
