May 2013 begins continuing the theme of extremes, mainly between the “Self and Other” – the Aries/Libra axis. The crescendo occurs on May 9 and 10 with the Solar Eclipse in Aries.

From there things settle down some, as most planets move into Taurus, and join Venus and Jupiter there. The Venus / Jupiter connection in Taurus shows a time of prosperity and abundance, but also a few inner conflicts involving material vs. philosophical abundance.

Two important aspects between Jupiter and the moon frame the second Penumbral Lunar eclipse in 1 month, on May 24.

Then comes the last days of May, when Jupiter enters Gemini, initiating a new year long cycle of growth related to communication and social themes.

All things considered, this could be one of the most transformational months of 2013. How will this affect your May plans?
