To understand what’s going on at this partial solar eclipse in Taurus- watch the news
We are now in the eclipse season for the next two weeks. May starts with the beautiful combination of Venus joining Neptune which supports all water signs but the chart is low in fire-the enthusiasm for life so you may be feeling overwhelmed.
Headline news is the former tennis champion Boris Becker being sent to prison for fraud. Boris has the Sun conjunct Neptune in late Scorpio-no boundaries-with a weak Saturn-no sense of responsibility. When I look at the partial Eclipse chart I see that Pluto went retrograde and Saturn is forming a square to the eclipse and Mercury (the news) on the North Node. How the mighty are fallen.
Earth Signs-Paying Attention to Change
At the partial Solar Eclipse the Sun and Moon in Taurus are close to Uranus, the planet of awakening and change. It was discovered at the time of revolution in the world.
Then on May 5th the Sun joins Uranus exactly, so be open to a breakthrough that is unique and unconventional. Uranus is sometimes known as the higher vibration of Mercury. Messages that can via Facebook, the news or email can provide the clues.
Mercury re-enters Taurus on May 23rd.
Later in the month on May 28th Venus enters Taurus- another sign where it is at home so a positive boost.
Water Signs-Feeling Overwhelmed?
For a couple of days in the year Venus joins Jupiter. This year they are both in the emotional water sign of Pisces where Venus is exalted and Jupiter is ‘at home’. This promises good fortune and blessings, especially for all the water signs- Pisces, Cancer and Scorpio. Mars is in Pisces and approaching Neptune. They join at the Total Lunar Eclipse on May 16th. Be aware of scams and anything that looks too good to be true.
The Bach flower essence Wild Oat can be really helpful to get back on track. It’s the remedy for people who feel they want to do something worthwhile with their lives but don’t know which direction to go. They tend to drift from one thing to another without finding a true path. They become frustrated and downcast as a result.
Or the homeopathic remedy ignatia if you are feeling grief.
Air Signs- Lighten up-don’t let Saturn bring you down
As we enter May, Mercury has just moved into its own sign of Gemini. The messenger planet will go retrograde on May 10th at 5 degrees Gemini and then go back into Taurus on May 23rd. It returns to Gemini on June 13th. Mercury is now in its ‘shadow phase so keep patient if tech stuff plays up. Saturn is still in Aquarius and is in close T square with the Nodal axis. Saturn can act in two ways, procrastination and depression, or once the past is healed and the burden lifted it becomes mature and is the planet of Mastery. Mercury in Gemini promotes humour. I love Schitts Creek and Frankie and Grace on Netflix. The Sun enters Gemini on May 21st, the same day that Mercury joins the Sun.
Fire Signs- Welcome the Goddess into Aries
At this partial eclipse in Taurus there was just one planet in a fire sign and its Chiron in Aries. Fire signs bring warmth, enthusiasm and lifts us up. Chiron isn’t a planet but a centaur and its vibration to awaken is similar to Uranus except it’s a 50 year orbit as opposed to the 84 years Uranus takes to complete its journey through the sky. Next month at the June New and Full Moons Mars activates Chiron-a time for healing.
Venus moves into Aries on May 2nd. This is the energy of the Warrioress. She’s the pioneer who fights for a cause. Expect women taking the lead and coming into the forefront in politics.
Once Mars enters Aries on May 24th it’s full steam ahead.
Eclipses are turning points and the Lunar Eclipse on May 16th is the one to watch. It happens at 25 degrees Scorpio/Taurus. A date for your diary is May 10th when Mercury goes retrograde in Gemini just as Jupiter moves into Aries.
At this partial eclipse ask where is Taurus in your chart? What house (areas of life’s activity) can it promote? Here’s a link to the page Houses in Astrology>
Slower Moving Planets
Jupiter: The Explorer/Teacher in Pisces and Aries
Where Jupiter is placed in your chart is where you find your Faith. Jupiter is now in Pisces from December 29th. Water signs benefit-Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces until May 10th 2022. It then moves into Aries as it is moving really fast. It re-enters Pisces on October 29th until December 20th 2022.
Saturn: The Strategist/Authority in Aquarius
It is now in Aquarius, a sign it co-rules with Uranus. The theme of last year is Saturn in a tense relationship (a square) with Uranus. This is the old versus the new. Rebellion and protest marches were seen in the news on a daily basis. Which side are you on? Do you obey the rules? Or do you revolt? This last square was on December 24 but it is still ‘in orb’. Jupiter is now strong in its own sign of Pisces so can balance its effect.
Neptune: The Dreamer/Visionary in Pisces
The date that is most important was April 12th when Jupiter joined Neptune in Pisces. This combination is active until May 10th when Jupiter changes sign.
Uranus- The Renegade/Awakener in Taurus
Uranus takes approx 7 years to go through a sign and always brings change/revolution. It is the planet that rules inventions and genius. Its now in Taurus (May 2018-April 2026 approx.) and we are witnessing the alarming news about climate change. Taurus is ruled by Venus, and as it’s an earth sign, we are now concerned with agriculture, our food chain and an awakening to our planet’s resources. In our daily lives Uranus wants to shake thing up and cut out old wood.
Pluto-The Transformer/Regenerator in Capricorn
Pluto is the slowest moving planet and currently travelling through Capricorn from 2008 until 2024. It is the God of the Underworld and the unconscious. It is assigned to Scorpio who also have Mars as their ruler. The transit of Pluto in Capricorn calls for deconstruction of the establishment and institutions. It went retrograde on April 29th.
You have given me so much to think about, from discovering my rising sign at last to an introduction to Mayan astrology. It was a fantastic afternoon of discovery about myself and my roots and my potential. I am following up on the reading list (thank you so much for the suggestions – brilliant) and slowly coming to terms with my new persona. The sheer breadth of the reading was really eye opening, as I thought I knew a fair amount about astrology but you opened new pathways for me. So I would warmly recommend a reading with Pam; discovering so many unexpected links and connections has meant that many things are resonating and bells are still ringing!
Thank you so much! All the very best, Marie-Ann

Vocation Report Now on Sale!
This report is excellent if you want to know more about your life purpose and the Nodes of the Moon in your chart.
One of the most important things in our lives is to find our Vocation- the work we were born to do.
When we are fulfilled we are happy and are living our purpose.
Its really useful to know about the reason you were born, the destiny that you came to fulfill. One incredibly useful tool that offers specific guidance is your astrology birth chart.
However it’s a complex subject and sometimes we just need to focus on this one aspect of our life.
Which is why this Vocation Report is so unique.
The Soul’s Expression through Career
I am offering this amazing Astrological Birth Chart Report called ‘Your Vocation Report’ at only £15. This is a bargain as I have never read a report as well written and easy to understand by non -astrologers that covers this kind of specialised information with such clarity.
This report is for you if :-
- You are looking for a change of direction.
- You need an answer to the question -what is my path?
- You are seeking confirmation – am I on the right path?
- You need to find new ways to earn some money.
- You have a young adult who is wondering what to do with their life.
The report is written by a well known Australian astrologer Brian Clark who provides an in-depth insight into the soul’s expression through career. It is a computerised report but you’d never know that by the style of writing which has a spiritual emphasis. This is his introduction:-
A Fulfilling Vocation
“Work is love made visible” Kahil Gibran. In the midst of our busy lives, worn out by the endless repetition of meaningless tasks, it is difficult to appreciate Kahlil Gibran’s poetic image of work as a soul-making sphere. In a technological environment work and soul seem worlds apart.
The outer rewards of career – prestige, status, vacations, salary packages, job security – conceal the urge to express soul through our vocation. When we are no longer anchored by values and images that remind us of a meaningful life, emptiness permeates the working atmosphere, contributing to an epidemic of dissatisfaction, depression and insecurity in the workplace.
This report is aimed at helping you reflect on your vocation or calling. It is not meant as a quick fix, but rather as an aid to self-understanding and awareness which in turn helps your vocational choices.
The reports contains:
- An Introduction to Vocation (This is really valuable information to digest)
- Vocation and Destiny – The Lunar Nodes
- Vocation and Direction – The Ascendant and Angular Planets
- Vocation and Character – The Sun and Moon
- Income – The Rich Resources of Your Life -The 2nd House Cusp and Planets in the 2nd House.
- Work – the 6th House Cusp and Planets in the 6th House.
- Profession – The Midheaven and Planets in the 10th House, Planets conjunct and opposite the Midheaven.
The author’s aim in each approximately 25-page report is to provide an astrological consideration of your vocational potentialities and to help you, and anyone who reads this report, to reflect on a fulfilling career path.
“The writing throughout the report is extremely inspiring and profound and certainly motivates one to take a deeper look at their life and career purposes….. All in all, it was such a treat! As a professional, it is harder to find material that excites me or teaches me something new but your report succeeded in all ways.” US Astrologer Patrice Kamins
“This report gives me plenty of food for thought. It actually calls for a more contemplative engagement and response rather that a quick fix. In the end, our vocation journey is about self-knowledge and awareness. It certainly gives that in spades.” Maggie, Marketing.
