When most people think of astrology, they usually think of what Sun sign they or another person are born under. Some, who may have looked into astrology a little further, may think of it as casting a chart for a person based on the date, time and place of birth. The truth is natal astrology, by itself, can be used to tell you so much more. It’s not just for people!
Yes, you heard me correctly. The keyword to consider is the word “birth”. Now, I realize that most people immediately think about the birth of a person, but the truth is that the term “birth” can mean much more. No, I’m not talking about the birth of your pets (although it could be used for that, if you had a mind to have that done). There’s the “birth” of an idea; the “birth” of a country; the moment that you open your new business is its “birth”; that moment when your wedding is to take place is the “birth” of that union. I could go on, but you should be getting the idea by now.
Each of these “births” have a date, time and place when it took place so each of these events can have a chart done that will show where the strengths and weaknesses are; what talents and abilities may spring from its happening; and what other things may be “born” from it. It can be very enlightening. It can also be a very useful tool for planning the best moment for opening that business or having that wedding so that the energies are being the most favorable for success, especially where important life changes are to take place.
Yes, my friends, astrology is so much more than most people think it is. It has been and will continue to be a valuable tool for success and making life’s journey a little easier for those who are willing to take it into consideration.
Having said that, we have a Full Moon in Scorpio happening on Sunday, May 3rd at 11:42 p.m. EDT.
A Full Moon in Scorpio is an excellent time for anything that has to do with the psychic or occult side of life. Have you been thinking about having a reading done? Now’s the time for it. Or you could buy some Tarot cards and begin to learn reading them yourself. Scorpio energy is mystical and makes one curious about the mysterious side of life.
With the Sun in Taurus, there may be a need to guard your jealousy and pride while perhaps also having to curb your appetite. This energy also inclines to “secrets” and secrets can lead to problems. Take care.
A Full Moon in Scorpio can also cause childhood scars to come to the surface. While some may see this as a curse, the truth is it can be an opportunity. It may be time to revisit these things in order to forgive and let go. Healing is always a good thing.
Venus will transit into Cancer on Thursday, May 7th at 6:53 p.m. EDT causing love to be the prime requirement now. There will be a need for an emotional outlet for both ones health and general well-being.
The desire to be comfortable in ones home may be strong and may cause those affected by these energies to want to redecorate or just spruce up their homes with art and other beautiful things.
This is a placement where you would prefer to have others come to your home to socialize rather than go out. There is a feeling of security in being in familiar surroundings.
On May 11th, Mars will enter Gemini at 10:10 p.m. EDT creating a vivid imagination and good manual dexterity. There’s also a fondness for change that can cause a desire to travel.
Reading, studying and good conversations are all high on the list of activities for those affected by these energies. This Mars energy is more intellectual than physical.
If you find yourself restless, Mars in Gemini may be trying to tell you that some part of your life has become monotonous and it’s time for a change – home, job, hobbies are all possibilities for change here.
It is possible that unfinished business from a past life may surface now. This could involve problems that weren’t faced, errors that weren’t acknowledged or even indecision that kept you from accomplishing what you were meant to do. Here’s your chance for a “do-over”. If it should arise, grab it!
Time for me to go outside and play. If you haven’t you should take some time to enjoy Spring in full bloom. I wish you a wonderful two weeks! See you soon…
