Joan Cerio welcomes resident astrologer Jude Valentine who tells us about the astrology for May. A month of retrogrades of the large outer planets of Pluto, Saturn and Jupiter, plus the personal planet Venus, bring much to reconsider as we re-evaluate our losses and gains, our focus and use of time, and our values. As the title of Paul Gaugain’s painting suggests; D'où Venons Nous / Que Sommes Nous / Où Allons Nous, Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?, this is the month where we dig for answers to those questions. With Venus in the picture, this is personal. And with Vesta conjunct, Venus, this speaks to our own personal dedication to intentional co-creation—on the personal and transpersonal level. The May 7 Full Moon in aspect to Uranus and square to Mars can provide an impetus, for the good, if we can use it; or the potential for conflict—our choice. The New Moon on May 22, with the Lights in trine to the outer retrograde planets, and Venus and Mercury in square to Neptune, may bring an overload of information that could be deceptive and/or emotionally confusing.
