Planetary Transits for the Waning Moon Cycle {May 14th to 28th}

Sun moves out of Aries its sign of exaltation, and into Taurus on 5.14 at 17:33 CDT. He transits Taurus until June 15th. Sun joins Mercury in Taurus and is now out of the gaze of Saturn and Rahu. This transit should sharpen the mind and creativity as well as help bring more stability and comfort to us and our desires. This will likely include matters of the heart and pocket book. Keep the mind cool though and don't let the mental body run away with itself - or you.

Mars retrograde right now has had us all retracing old action steps. Frustrations have arrived as we are walking over the same old ground. It feels familiar, yet we feel ready now to take bigger strides now; hence the frustrations. Retrograde Mars in Virgo has heightened our critique of this process. Yet Virgo can also offer ample creativity if we can touch in and harness it for momentum. This creativity will make the "retracing" worth the effort in the coming weeks. Luckily Mars finally goes direct on the 19th and will have us lurching once again- but this time in a forward direction. As Mars continues to move through Hasta nakshatra, Savitr requests an intuitive, introspective audit as we move with these old, familiar tides. If you don't pause, you'll miss it.

Mercury finishes up its transit through Taurus and conjunction of Sun on 5.22 at 15:32 CDT, moving into its own sign of Gemini where it joins Jupiter there. A powerful transit of "increase" is upon us with this one. More knowledge, more wisdom, more understanding and more of all things Mercury. Expect money making ideas and desires to increase simultaneously. Don't let the mind run off with you. Reign it in. Being diligent this month with the mental body and meditation will be valuable and deepen your efforts and experiences with this transit.

Following Mercury, Venus changes signs the next day. Moving out of its exaltation sign of Pisces and into Aries on 5.23 at 18:09 CDT. This is a particularly tricky junction as Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac and is a water sign, whereas Aries is the beginning of the zodiac and a fire sign. The symbolism here: endings and new beginnings, as well as starting anew. Venus will be feeling the pressure this month as he shares Aries with Ketu and also receives direct gaze (drishti) from Saturn and Rahu seven houses away as well as Mars eight houses away. A nice exchange between Sun and Venus occurs though as Sun transits Taurus (ruled by Venus) and Venus transits Aries (ruled by Sun). Heat, pressure and transformations are inevitable. We may feel this in our relationships, with our creativity, passions, artistry, and with our flow of money. We may get an increase of support and a greater feeling of power and possibility with this transit. However, as Venus joins Ketu in Aries, expect a purification of these areas of life to occur as well as a restructuring with all things Venus. This is the necessary preparation we need for the upcoming expansive changes. As Venus changes signs on June 18th and moves into its own sign of Taurus (a very stable placement for him), Jupiter moves Cancer, to its sign of exaltation, just hours later. Increase of stability and support are on their way! Use this transit of Venus to clear and purge in preparation for the influx. Remember that the more space you can create, the greater space you will have to fill!
