We can calm down, just for a moment, since we’re past those harrowing Taurus/Scorpio eclipses which brought about so much upheaval in the past few weeks, and now we can move into the slightly balmier days of June.
Our galactic vessel has landed on the rocky shores of May 2013, and it’s strange territory indeed. Oh you may ask, what happened to those nice Druid Beltane and May Day festivals?
This fracas of Saturn and Mars will start off the early days of this month with a clash of symbols, i.e. the impulsive son, whose restrictive and disciplinarian dad is taking him to task.
What a charged up month it is, this April, with several planets in the impulsive “do or die” sign of pioneer Aries. Coming off of the intense full moon of last week, with the fertility rites of spring just behind us, symbolized by "Eostre" the Teutonic goddess of fertility whose totem was the rabbit.
Dear everyone, here comes March and what do we have? The Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Neptune, Chiron, all swimming in the emotional waterworld of the ocean god. This is just how last month ended, with Mercury and Saturn retrograde, causing us to look backwards and review and re-investigate various details and make some changes.
The early February planetary lineup in Aquarius, along with a Libra moon and Jupiter in Gemini, makes for a lot of air which inclines towards verbosity - but of course with many innovative and original ideas bandied about, so typical of Aquarius.

Not the most conducive aspect for compromise, is a Cancer moon in opposition to Mars Pluto, which is how the month of December begins, and added to that standoff are Mercury, Saturn, and Venus all in Scorpio. Whew out can come some very sharp words, knife- like verbal instruments... and yes something has to be cut.
Welcome to a month of more than the usual Scorpionic intensity. Aside from the two eclipses and four retrograde planets, the historic election falls under a Scorpio Sun in square to a Leo (kingly) moon.
Oh the cliff! Here we are, as October ziplines down into place from a spiced up harvest moon with certain strings attached, like Uranus and Pluto in exact degrees, creating some intense moments over the early in the month. Venus opposing Chiron and Neptune, along with the Mars connection to the devilish Rahu, (north node for us in the West) all add into
September rides in on the wave of last week’s powerful blue moon whose, angles and degrees corresponded to the arc of Pluto and Chiron, all of which just added to the intensity factor not to mention hurricane forces at work,. The energetics carried over for a few days, and if your birthday was somewhere in the August 31 to September 2nd range, you might still be celebrating!
