Monthly Astrological Insights for May 2020  

The manifestation of the Pluto's ingress in Capricorn and the conjunction of Saturn and Pluto in sidereal Capricorn will continue to be reflected in painful, fearful and destructive world events (especially the Covid-19 outbreak, natural as well as man-made calamities, unfortunate deaths, violence, senseless killings, etc.,). The posting of March 17, 2020 on Coronavirus outbreak underscores the Pluto's Capricorn ingress.

The physical, social, political and economical  turmoil, especially in the United States will likely to continue during the entire month and beyond, especially due to the president Trump's governing style in uncertain political, economical and social environment. 

As I have alluded a few silver linings (drastic reduction in air pollution worldwide, improving the air quality, and perhaps favorably influencing the climate change fallouts) in the midst of this crisis in my last posting and a wake up call triggered by the Covid-19 crisis for us to reflect on where we are in our journey of human evolution, it seems to me that since the Pluto's ingress in Capricorn (February 13) the glimpse that it had provided us over last two and half months of what to come when Pluto returns to Capricorn by the end of 2020 (after being retrograde and returning to Sagittarius July 3 through December 26, 2020) to stay in Capricorn for next 19-20 years. 

One thing is certain.  As a result of Covid-19 experience and the wake up call it triggered, going forward, our life styles are very likely to be transformed and (hopefully) more aligned with "Nature".  The fact that people still reluctant to engage in going back to normal life even after the Covid-19 related restrictions are relaxed, suggests that people's perception about the "norms" of healthy and happy living might have been transformed.  Only the time will tell how far this transformation process will last.

Besides Pluto's ingress in Capricorn other important planetary aspects for May are:  Jupiter-Pluto conjunction and retrograde Venus as detailed below.

Jupiter's brief entry in sidereal Capricorn on March 29, 2020 (Mar 29 - July 1)

On March 29, 2020, Jupiter entered Capricorn, it becomes retrograde in Capricorn on May 11 and with its retrograde motion returns to Sagittarius on July 1, 2020. Thereafter, it stays in Sagittarius until November 20, 2020. While in Capricorn, being a cardinal and earth sign ruled by Saturn, Jupiter in Capricorn (despite debilitated in Capricorn) has a tendency to enhance material prosperity of those who have well placed and well connected Saturn and Jupiter in their birth charts while others likely to experience their prosperity diminish.  However, given the Pluto's presence in Capricorn, the rate of destruction of material wealth far outweighs the material prosperity of Capricorn Jupiter.

 During this period of March 20 - July 1, 2020,  the influence of contemporary philosophers on society will shape the future direction of our social evolution through the philosophical and metaphysical debates. 

Since Jupiter will be in conjunction with Pluto during March 27 - April 15, 2020 in Capricorn, the possibility of a severe religious or morality crisis as well as financial crisis are very likely.  Certainly, the way we have the religious and morality based norms today will be challenged by the new forces of human evolution. And the world financial markets will exhibit unprecedented volatility.  The contemporary philosophers, reformers, industrialists, scientists, and all those who have power to influence people with their unique intelligence based talents will enjoy this period to its fullest.

Retrograde Venus  (May 13 - June 25)

On May 13, 2020 Venus becomes retrograde and remains in sidereal Taurus till it becomes direct on June 25.  Venus stays in Taurus all the time while retrograde. Venus becomes retrograde about once every 19 months, and stays retrograde for about six weeks.  On the 1st of August Venus enters sidereal Gemini. Venus transits through Taurus from March 28 through August 1, 2020.

In general, a retrograde Venus in Taurus (a sign ruled by Venus) means a very challenging period for women, marriages, home life, lovers, entertainment industries. During the retrograde period, expect the divorce rates to peak, fighting between spouses to intensify, and delays, frustrations, and misunderstandings to take a center-stage in domestic matters. Taurus being the earth sign (money matters, hard work) the retrograde Venus in Taurus also means challenges for entrepreneurs, blue class workers, small businesses (especially owned by women), restaurant and hotel owners; and also precious stones and jewelry business owners.

If you have a dominating Venus in your birth chart, and if your current planetary cycle influences your life via Venus then you are more likely to experience the effects of the retrograde Venus during May 13 - June 15. The entertainers like actors, actresses, musicians, comedians, movie directors and producers, entrepreneurs, blue class workers, small businesses (especially owned by women), restaurant and hotel owners; and precious stones and jewelry business owners may find themselves in a miserable situation during the retrograde Venus period especially if they are currently being influenced by Venus through their current progressive cycles.

 

About President Donald Trump and his present challenges

President Trump becomes self-destructive and continues to face challenges in dealing with his friends and adversaries alike. In addition to be frustrated and depressed, he is likely to be in the company of wrong people. In light of his on going Coronavirus crisis, he will continue to have an on going friction with his cabinet members and political adversaries. Furthermore, he will be dealing with his self-created feud with congress men and women and others.  Overall chaos, fear,  confusion and disappointment will continue to be a center of his political experiences.

It's an unfavorable period for him when it comes to dealing with women and his personal finances. While Sun is favorable for him from political gains and success standpoint till May 10, Neptune will likely to create deceptive atmosphere around him (either created by himself or some of the people  surrounding him).

The most severe challenge due to the opposition of transiting Pluto to his natal Saturn during April is very likely to turn out to be extremely intensive for him from governing the country standpoint for he would likely to be overwhelmed by defeat and humiliation due to his eccentric behavior.

Thus, during April, the challenging transit of Saturn present very intensive and painful time for him.  In addition, the opposition of the transiting Pluto to his natal Saturn will certainly continue to create explosive political climate, governing failures, mishandling of coronavirus crisis, and therefore, resulting in  yet another trying and frustrating month.

However, when one looks at the close conjunction of Sun and Rahu, and Rahu and Uranus in the 10th house of his natal chart,  and Moon in very close conjunction with the lunar node Ketu in the 4th house of his natal chart, it's not very surprising why he operates the way he does.  It seems to me, he is totally driven by the country's (USA) destiny (at least at this point in history) which is very closely tied with his own due to the Rahu-Uranus conjunction in the 10th house of his natal chart. 

It's the reflection of what collectively the country (USA) as a whole is going through at this point in history. Perhaps, it's a part of painful process of transformation and discovery of the next phase of its evolution, as reflected in constant churning (and becoming aware of them) of our die hard social prejudices and inherent, deeply rooted biases. If the country's destiny is at the crossroad of "CHANGE" at this point in history, that will certainly be reflected in political events of May. Perhaps, it seems more and more likely that the Coronavirus outbreak and its ultimate toll on Americans finally may bring that "CHANGE".  (More)  

 

Global Predictions........

The important challenging possibilities for May include: 

Apr 8 - May 13: Challenges the world religions (or religious leaders) are likely to face with earthshaking ideas. Those religious leaders, who are willing to be open minded and ready to listen and act on new and fresh ideas, are the ones that going to be responsible to transform our religious world to a new level. Others will fade away with time. The new age philosophers are likely to emerge as lead contemporary philosophers.

Apr 18 - May 17: Political or social unrest in China or Russia (or both). Also, in the United State for the Republican Party and Republicans including President Trump, it may prove to be prudent to stay on guard during this period.

Apr 26 - May 4: Barbaric activities are likely to take place all around the world. Terrorists are likely to be successful in creating confusion and chaos. Social turmoil in Europe and Russia is likely. Religious activities could get stalled for no apparent reason.

May 18 - 26: A social as well political turmoil in Russia and China. Covert activities around the world may find a new momentum (but because of Neptune's secretive character we may never know) with regard to coronavirus and other international conflicts.

May 19 - 28: A drastic change is likely to occur in the way the current US administration deals with other nations with respect to its international agenda, and also with its domestic matters. There will be a transformation of a political strategy that might become responsible of a change in the current political agenda, and foreign policy matters of the Trump administration as the planet Pluto with its tremendous energy has a power of irreversibly transforming the field of politics to a new level or setting with a new set of norms. Expect some serious issues that the Trump administration could get tangled with.

May 24 - June 1:  A social or political turmoil in the USA, Russia and/or China, as well as increased tensions among these nations.

 

The important auspicious possibilities for May include:

Apr 19 - May 24:  Positive changes likely to occur in religious, academic, and social fields.

Apr 12 - May 7: Improvement in European and Russian economy, progress in technical fields (new innovations and discoveries) and religious reconciliation.

Apr 20 - May 11:  An extraordinary time for collective spiritual growth, technological discoveries and inventions.  Expect some new important technological breakthroughs during this month. For the United States, in general, it's going to be a remarkable and very successful period

May 19 - June 13: Religions around the world enjoying positive experiences. People will likely to be convinced with the importance of moral values and will have no difficulty in maintaining their religious faith. 

May 26 - June 21: Improvement in European and Russian economy, progress in technical fields (new innovations and discoveries) and religious reconciliation.

The countries that are more likely to be affected during this month are: mostly all most all countries, but particularly United States, China,  Europe, Russia and Middle East (Syria, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Palestine-Israel regions).  (More)

Saturn-Rahu (and Ketu) ninefold square(s) (Apr 26 - May 4)

Saturn-Rahu (and Ketu) ninefold squares are going to be devastating for those who have such squares in their natal charts.  Anything that you attempt will be failed or will result in agonizing and frustrating experience. This is not the time to take any risk.  If you have such squares in your birth chart, and if any one of these planets is presently influencing you through the Gochar (transit) chart, then you need be extra careful. The best thing to do is not make any new commitment, and totally avoid taking any business or monetary risk.   (More)
