May 17, a new path opens – whachya going to do? You’re streamlining yourself for your best work, your truest path, and professional colleagues finally step forward to help. A new one too as April ends, and then, oh lordy, what a mixed bag May is! In terms of riding a new road, be rational this month when you make your decision. Be brave. Not sentimental nor emotional.
Wednesday, May 10 a full Scorpio Moon lights up your fifth house and it’s the hottest news for May. It covers: true love, creativity, children, art, performance, entertaining, and taking a gamble. Now is not the time to day-dream about these things, but to make them happen. This will affect you for months, if not years. Harmony and peace are required here. Maybe even a truce of some kind. What you do this coming month will change your life forever. Whatever you do this month, you will find yourself doing a LOT OF. So, plan your actions and energy carefully. Don’t forget to look up at the night sky that Wednesday, May 17. The full Moon will give you the idea of how to enrich your life. Trust it, even though it may come as a playful idea.
Lucky planet Jupiter is also closest to Earth at this time. Look for it close to the Moon; it is the next brightest star! Jupiter in your fourth house of home and your original family, just what you need. You may not be sharing it with the world but I suspect you’re doing a fair bit of daydreaming about your accomplishments thus far.
Ceres is moving into your twelfth solitude house of healing as May begins. So, hmm. How is that working out for you?
Well, Ceres is the biggest asteroid we’ve ever discovered – and the FIRST one we ever discovered. It was discovered in 1801. The astronomers named it after the Roman goddess of the earth, nature, and harvest. In Greek mythology, she is Demeter, the mother who lost her daughter Persephone to the underworld. Remember that story? (It’s one of my personal favorites.)
Persephone, Demeter’s daughter, was stolen by Hades, King of the Underworld, and taken down under the earth to live with him. Persephone eventually fell in love with him, so SHE was okay as far as that part was concerned, but she suffered horribly missing her mother. And her mother still suffers today.
And because she is mother of the Earth, her feelings are reflected in the Earth. When could a mother ever keep her feelings to herself about losing a child?
So Hades had to hear her, and they made a deal. Half the year, her daughter Persephone lives with him, under the Earth. That is when it is fall and winter: leaves fall and die, all goes dark and underground, nothing grows. The other half, Persephone is reunited with her mother above Earth. That is when it is spring and summer: everything grows and births, all becomes light!
This is particularly potent now that winter is ending for many of us.
And so we have the seasons. (Astrology is based on the northern hemisphere, but for the southern hemisphere, just reverse.) And so we have, too, the connection of birth and reproduction. Parent and child at its most primal. Creator and offspring.
It’s no coincidence that Mother’s Day in America is in May. This year, on Sunday, May 14. We’re all really Earth-centered at heart. This sets up your new synodic theme of what is truly nurturing –i.e. MOTHERING – to you. This May what you love is up for grabs. What you really care about has to be decided. So, let’s look at what you’ve been MISSING. And see how you, yourself, have kept yourself from that. Fill up on any of these areas, sweet Crabby. And you not only heal your life, you save yourself and move from the underworld back to Earth. You give birth.
What you need to fill up on; what is missing. Firstly, you must give birth to greater finances and personal resources. Your self-worth, self value, and self-esteem.
You have been roaming the wilderness for a good forty years now (metaphorically speaking) and it’s time for that promotion or business deal to come through now, and for you to put down your roots. Money, sweet Crab, will be a large part of it, however unspiritual that may sound. It’s actually VERY spiritual and much to do with your path, and how you got to this point.
Remember, you guys are 5oo million years old. The crab is a genius in self-preservation. You will survive — you always survive. But money is essential now.
Saturn is retrograde in your sixth house of work and health. Both these have been a pain for you. How to reconcile the two?
Saturn is the celestial taskmaster, the karma wizard — and our lessons in hubris. This is now falling in your daily work and routine house. Wherever you have worked very hard, you will be rewarded. Likewise, wherever you have not worked very hard (but instead, squandered your money) you will also get “rewards”.
The harvest time has come. For better or worse.
Your resources with others is due for a positive upturn as of May 17. You can expect some financial returns beginning then. (Isn’t everything really death or taxes?) Allow another to help you in terms of the day-to-day at this time. It may be time for some of you to hire social secretaries!
The full Moon on May 10 illuminates an aspect of your major relationship. Look carefully at what the light is revealing.
You may be forgiven, dear Cancer, for day-dreaming romantically right now — you definitely have an ideal type — but unattached Crabs: keep your eyes open now, and you’ll see someone new!
More about that next month.
And Cancer, it is finally SPRING! Spring has sprung!
Time for your own private session?

I look forward to speaking with you, Cancer. Take care.
With love, Madalyn
