On 23rd May: Jupiter makes its first opposition to Saturn in this current cycle. Click here> to read my previous blog about the Jupiter-Saturn cycle.
Jupiter in Pisces is also really close to a conjunction with Uranus, but won’t quite catch up with Uranus until June, by which time they are both in the sign of Aries. Still, they are close enough for us to be feeling it already. Read all about the exciting Jupiter-Uranus cycle here
The big news of the month is Uranus’ much anticipated ingress into Aries. See Uranus in Aries: Claiming a Self Reliant Future at Auntie Moon, for a pick of the best Uranus in Aries articles. Uranus only gives us a brief taste of life in the Aries fast lane before he moves back into Pisces from mid August until March 2011.
Hot on the heels of Uranus’ pit stop in Aries, Saturn in Virgo turns around and moves forward again on 30th May, eventually hitting 0 degrees of Libra again in July, ready for its next opposition to Uranus and Jupiter and its next square to Pluto, forming the much anticipated Cardinal T-Square.
Astrologically, May has the feeling of preparation and anticipation, as all the main players - Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Pluto - get themselves in position for the main event, the Cardinal T-Square, which will come into its fullness this summer.
Four Charts to Watch this Summer:
- The Solstice chart on June 21st. Solstice charts are always good for getting a feel for the season to come and in this one, the Sun at 0 Cancer plugs into the outer planet T-Square, forming a Cardinal Grand Cross.
- Then on June 26th, the Capricorn Full Moon falls across the early degrees of Cancer and Capricorn, again forming a Cardinal Grand Cross as it picks up the outer planet T-Square. (article forthcoming)
- 21st July when Saturn returns to 0 degrees of Libra. (article forthcoming)
- 30th July, Mars enters 0 degrees of Libra, joining up with the Cardinal T-Square. (article forthcoming)
