Contacts at a distance are tantalizing and new plans dazzle, but be patient. May 3 dratted Mercury Wretchograde is finally over, and by May 5, you begin to zoom. Even though you’re top of your game you’re feeling vulnerable, and it’s all to do with your ambition and others’ conflict.
A tip, sweet Lion: don’t let anyone into your (new) home / castle / kingdom that you don’t want to be there. Do not worry… Confusion ceases and you WILL be clear and motivated again by the full Scorpio Moon on Wednesday, May 10 – which takes place in your fourth house. This covers: home, property, early family (often your dad), endings and beginnings, and the sense of your roots.
This affects you for months, if not years, so don’t toss this one off. 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.
Remember to look up at the night sky that Wednesday, May 10. The full Moon will give you a gorgeous insight into a new way of leading your life. The Moon will be brilliant and what you receive from it, even more so. It’s a genius insight (as befitting Leo) and it will make you feel much better – as in, it WORKS.
Lucky planet Jupiter is also closest to Earth at this time. Look for it close to the Moon; it is the next brightest star! This provider of good fortune and abundance is just what you need. It is quietly supporting you in your third house of communications and writing. After June 9, when it goes direct, it will be LOUDLY supporting you, screaming your name to the stars! You may not be sharing it with the world but I suspect you’re doing a fair bit of daydreaming about your success or stardom and truly taking the world by storm.
At the same time, Jupiter in your third house sign can sometimes be a bit much for siblings or neighbors to take. Jupiter rules excess. Like a massive beautiful super friendly polar bear that just…overwhelms. You may have noticed some people pulling back. Be gentle now in your approach. You may not realize that you are coming across as demanding or, well, like a polar bear. Which can be abrasive to some.
Now, at the same time Ceres is leaving your tenth career fame house for your friends house (including professional colleagues and clubs.) Ceres rules nurturing.
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 the Taurus time of May. In 2017, it is on Sunday, May 14. We’re all really Earth-centered at heart. This sets up your new synodic theme of what is truly nuturing (i.e. MOTHERING) to you.
This May what you love is up for grabs. Look around your professional circles, your friends and allies. What’s going on there? Nurturing becomes what it’s all about.
To help you be as brave as you are, use the luck of your Jupiter Sign — and watch yourself create miracles!
Was it worth it to hang in there all this time? You betcha!
Career, which has been a bit slow (if not outright confused) will start to zoom ahead this May. As gauzy and romantic as your view may be of your relationships right now, you will get a super-clear view of your career. With a laser beam focus.
So, formulate now, dear Leo, what it is you want to focus on. What you need for your career. What you want to happen.
Love, is, as I said, a little bit in its dreamy stages right now. That’s charming and illusory Neptune and needing-to-be-healed Chiron in your eighth house.
This can also cause you to look at business partnerships idealistically. Not that there are any problems but be sure to nip them in the bud by being realistic from the get go.
And you will do brilliantly! I see a new project beginning at the end of May and massive success connected with it.
It should leave your mark on the world, metaphorically speaking, and I see you being very proud of your work.
And Leo, it is finally SPRING! Spring has sprung!
Time for your own private session?

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