Professional Astrologer, Jill Jardine, M.A. Counseling/Psychology, shares her Astrology Forecast for May 2021. Stay tuned to the end of the episode when Jill gives Sun Sign predictions for each Zodiac sign for May. www.jilljardineastrology.com
May portends planetary pranks with several planets parading through genial Gemini, making for gregarious and convivial conversations. The pace picks up in a madcap manner as if we're all galloping to an end of the month finish line, like horses at the May 1st Kentucky Derby. Astrologically we are hitting celestial showstoppers at the end of May, including Saturn going retrograde on May 23, followed by a Blood Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on May 26th with the Sun in Gemini and Moon in Sagittarius, topped off with the cherry of manic Mercury in Gemini turning retrograde on May 29th! That's right- it's eclipse season again, with a Saturnian and Mercurial twist! Hang on to your hats! Go back and listen to Jill's previous podcasts on eclipses: "TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE HEART: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT ECLIPSES" released on May 22, 2020.

New Moon in Taurus occurs on May 11, asking us to get very grounded and centered, while focusing on financial and physical security and well-being. Restoration of health, upgrading our physical body, and regenerating our life force, to ride the wave of change on the evolving New Earth. This New Moon occurs at the Zodiacal degree of 21-22 degrees Taurus. According to the Sabian Symbol interpretation (a system of archetypal descriptions of the 360 degrees of the Zodiac): 22 degrees of Taurus - "WHITE DOVE FLYING OVER TROUBLED WATERS/" Keynote: The spiritual inspiration that comes to the individual in overcoming of crisis.
FULL MOON LUNAR ECLIPSE occurs on May 26, 2021 at 7:14 am EST. This is a Blood Moon Total Lunar eclipse, visible in Australia, parts of the western U.S., western South America, and South East Asia. At this Full Moon Lunar Eclipse the astrological polarity of Gemini and Sagittarius is triggered, and those born during those sun signs will be impacted. The Sabian Symbol for the Full Moon at 5 degrees of Sagittarius is: "AN OLD OWL SITS ALONE ON THE BRANCH OF A LARGE TREE." The keynote: "A poised and wise approach to existence based on a clear perception of unconscious factors and their operation." We need to honor our innate wisdom or inner "sage" to get true information at this time. Our culture has lost the age old tradition of honoring the wisdom of our elders and learn from them when it is spiritual or mundane knowledge. The internet and technologies of our current age can share plenty of information, but true wisdom may be harder to come by.
