Heavenly Headlines

MAY 2022

Out of a Taurus Solar Eclipse on the final day of April and heading for a Scorpio Lunar Eclipse mid month this will be a month rife with anticipation. Eclipses always heighten the mood, triggering an urgency about changing certain aspects of life and developing potential. It’ll take effort and determination as well as common sense but with persistence there will be tangible rewards. Taurus as the primary energy hints that a steady, down-to-earth approach will be what works best though with innovative, rebellious Uranus playing its part. There will also be input from imaginative Pisces and go-ahead, fiery Aries, so it will be a complicated mix.

  Jupiter changing sign to move into pro-active Aries for many months from the 10th will bring a dynamic, pro-active and confident mood, even more so when joined by high-octane Mars from the 24th. It may not always be sensible but it will shake away a few cobwebs.

   The Saturnine Lunar Eclipse of the 15th may be discouraging but it will bring a realistic appraisal of one tricky situation. Ito the final ten days the chatty, scattered, multi-tasking Gemini takes over from practical Taurus – more entertainment, more information, more hot air.


1: Venus in Pisces sextile Pluto – seductive, persuasive, sociable.

2: Venus into Aries until 29th – not backwards about flirting or stating a fancy, colourful and outgoing.

Jupiter in Pisces from December 29th to May 10 and again from late October into 2023 – kind, compassionate, generous, mystical, spiritual and creative. In Aries from May 10  to October 29th and again December 20 to mid May 2023 – pro-active, enthusiastic, go-ahead.
