As April ends, the solar eclipse new Taurus Moon on Saturday, April 30, brings a new helpful friend your way. So funny that all you want is security, and yet a new life path is always on offer to you as well. And it is one of those times.
The eleventh house, traditionally ruled by revolutionary Aquarius, rules your highest dreams and ideals, and these are being activated like crazy – no wonder you are losing it when it comes to your everyday job. And activated in a good way, albeit surprisingly and unexpectedly.
For in your eleventh house you have:
Shining powerhouse Sun
Solar eclipse new Taurus Moon Saturday, April 30
Brilliant wordsy Mercury (in and out, retrograde and direct)
Wise Pallas as of Sunday, May 1
Your eleventh house, traditionally ruled by curious Aquarius, rules:
Your social and professional circles
Career colleagues, associates, contacts
Your highest hopes and dreams
Altruistic organizations, clubs, groups
Groups – and how you relate to being in them
Peer group pressure
All the advice you get (good and bad)
How you do or do not make the world a better place
The “It” Idea
In terms of career, it is all about these social contacts and the “It” idea. How much you are “it”. And how you need to be with the right people in the right place at the right time. Tip: do not play the ingenue. Be the seasoned, wise expert that you truly are.
You’re streamlining yourself for your best work, your truest path, and professional colleagues finally step forward to help. A new one 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.
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 Monday, May 16. The lunar eclipse Scorpio full Moon will give you the idea of how to enrich your life. Trust it, even though it may come as a playful idea.
The same day, May 16, Ceres moves into your sign of Cancer!
Ceres is the biggest asteroid we’ve ever discovered – and the FIRST one we ever 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 8. In the earth sign of Taurus. 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.
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!
Lucky Jupiter moves into your tenth house of career Tuesday, May 10 and helps you professionally.
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.

Come queen of months in company
Wi all thy merry minstrelsy
The restless cuckoo absent long
And twittering swallows chimney song …
