Monthly News from Susan Miller
I have some fun news at the bottom of this letter, so please do read to the end. It has to do with something I’ve wanted to do for a long time, and it’s happening this month.
First, however, I need to address this month’s difficult full moon eclipse in Scorpio on May 5 at 15 degrees. I go into detail in your individual report about which area of your life might be affected. Not everyone notices each eclipse that comes by within a particular series (such as the Taurus-Scorpio series that we are feeling now). Whether you will feel it or not depends on the degree of the eclipse—it all comes down to mathematics.
Your May Horoscope for Aquarius
This is a busy month. It holds the second of two eclipses—the first one arrived last month on April 19, and it was a new moon solar eclipse in Aries at 29 degrees. It was a friendly eclipse, although all eclipses nearly always require change and adjustment, something a fixed sign like yours, Aquarius, might not always look forward to. You are hardwired to hold up the structure of things, not suddenly dismantle them, but sometimes that is necessary. The April 19 eclipse will bring about a positive outcome because it arrived so closely orbiting to Jupiter, the planet of good fortune.
Now we come to its twin, a full moon lunar eclipse on May 5 in Scorpio at 15 degrees. This one is far more demanding and difficult than the one in April. This eclipse will light your tenth house of career honors, awards, and achievement, so your job, reputation, and status in your company and the industry at large will be your focus. Full moons bring culminations and usually represent a situation that has been going on for a while without resolve. Now things will start to get settled.
This is a tricky eclipse because of the tension between home and career that seems to be shaping up due to Uranus conjunct the Sun, and both are in tight opposition to the full moon. It may be that you will be chosen for a very prestigious position but feel torn because of obligations you have at home with children or other family members, such as a parent who depends on you.
Pluto, in Aquarius until June 11, will, at the eclipse, press on the Sun and full moon, indicating a partner at work (agent, publicist, collaborator, expert, coach, business partner, accountant, or lawyer as some examples) or at home (possibly your spouse) and only add to the pressure to decide, considering the conflict you might start to feel concerning work verses home. In another manifestation, instead, you might have to move house or do extensive repairs or renovations for any number of reasons, and all this is happening when the job culmination and possible offer are coming up.
