May 2021 Supermoon Lunar Eclipse
May 2021 astrology contains at least two “superclusters” of configurations happing in close succession.
First is the interval between May 3 and 5 with the Sun, Saturn, Mars, Neptune and Pluto making significant aspects to each other and Mercury (the seer-observer of all) in conjunction with the Pleiades.
Second there is the May 22 through 26 Saturn turning stationary retrograde with the Sun making aspect to it followed closely by the “supermoon” lunar eclipse on the 26th.
All of these configurations/events can coincide with very pivotal developments in the human/world sphere, and not without a significant amount of pain experienced in the process.
Pain, of course, is not a bad thing in itself, just like a hunk of metal in a fire experiences the “pain” of it’s purification as the lesser elements mingled within it are drawn out in the process, then separated out.
Pain, especially emotional pain, is a similar process; as the fire (experiences) draws out the lesser elements of character, it becomes a process of emotional purification.
Saturn, as the chief astrological pain-inflictor (Mars a close second, and then there’s always Pluto), a great purpose can be seen in its effects, giving one integrity and strength of character, but also legitimately understanding and helpful to others in the sincerity it delivers.
Much like Bruce Lee once said:
If I tell you I’m good, probably you will say I am boasting. But if I tell you I’m not good, you’ll know I’m lying.
Or, John Steinbeck:
You can boast about anything if it’s all you have. Maybe the less you have, the more you are required to boast.
The supermoon lunar eclipse basically is an alignment of the Sun, Earth and Moon where the Earth’s shadow covers the Moon with the Moon itself at it’s closest distance to the Earth (perigee). While the headlines in the days to come will hype the event up a bit, it’s basically a slightly more powerful lunar eclipse in my reckoning. Together, this event with the few-days-prior Saturn station indicates another pivotal time in human experience collectively and individually.
Humans learn and grow through achievement, a free will choice to determine, direct and move his or her life through a consciously chosen course, requiring no insignificant amount of status quo sacrifice and willingness to forge through unknown territory because the social collective, leaning together on their co-dependent flaws tend not to do that. The social collective does rise en masse, but only as individuals within that group themselves decide to rise first.
Saturday, May 1
Realizations, some not very savory. Deep pain betrayed in communications and encounters. (Mercury conjunct Algol star)
Sunday, May 2
Interesting interactions and eccentric behaviors push the envelope of social norms, which may be a good thing. (Mercury trine Pluto, Moon conjunct Pluto, Venus sextile Neptune)
Monday, May 3
Thwarted intensions and difficulties challenge your various competencies. (Sun square Saturn)
Tuesday, May 4
Sometimes you just don’t get a break. Or, do you? Outlooks can be dark, but out of the depths can emerge the most powerful, transcendent experiences. Chose the path conscientiously. (Mercury conjunct Pleiades, Mercury tridecile Saturn, Moon conjunct Jupiter, Sun tridecile Pluto)
Wednesday, May 5
Eta-Aquarid Meteor Shower
Focus and determination called for producing unexpected and exciting results. Relationships may take new, unusual turns; but after today nothing may surprise you. (Jupiter quintile Uranus, Mars biquintile Saturn, Juno square Neptune, Venus conjunct Algol)
Thursday, May 6
Unusual and/or subtle changes to the scene trigger deep emotions and relationships. “Reality”, as it is regularly perceived may need an adjustment. (Venus trine Pluto, Mercury quintile Neptune, Moon conjunct Neptune, Sun biquintile Juno)
Friday, May 7
No peaking influences
Saturday, May 8
Too much of a good thing no longer is a good thing. (Venus square Jupiter)
Sunday, May 9
Relationships may need some rehabilitative attention. (Venus conjunct Pleiades tridecile Saturn)
Monday, May 10
Things take unusually malicious or subversive turns. Be careful of those who claim to act for righteousness because those can be the most deluded of us all, or any “championing” that you do yourself. Energy may be low, dysfunctional behaviors are activated. Even so, brilliance of inspiration is indicated. (Mars tridecile Neptune, Mercury on Antares/Aldebaran fixed star axis)
