A Note from Susan Miller
My former husband, Don Miller, died this morning, Saturday, May 1, at 8:34 AM in the city we always lived, New York City, Manhattan.
He was in a hospital, and the nurse called today to give us—me and my two daughters, Chrissie, who lives here in New York City, and Diana, who flew in from Los Angeles—the heartbreaking news. They did say his passing was natural, as his organs failed him. They had kept him very comfortable, and we were told he never felt pain. There were no decisions to make, and there was nothing that could be done. The finality of death is so chilling. I felt so sorry he could not have lived longer and had to pass this way.
Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
The first part of the month will be your most productive part of May, so you should hit the ground running. The first big important day will come on or just after May 11 with the new moon in Taurus, 21 degrees, that will light your third house of communication and close-by travel. This house also rules your siblings and cousins, so this month, thanks to this beautifully aspected new moon, you may have a lot to do with one of your close kin, perhaps working together on a project, such as to start a business or to invest in real estate together.
You may feel that you need to get away to a beautifully mountainous forest location (a favorite of Taurus, the sign of the new moon) that is not too far from home. You may need this little break, even if you can only manage one night away, perhaps due to pressing obligations at home. You may be able to go by car or rail, but either way, the weekend of May 15-16 would be ideal to go, with the moon in Cancer by then, and the new moon in Taurus bolstering your trip a few days earlier, you are sure to have a heavenly time.
The third house has a more important function— to help you communicate effectively. This new moon will encourage you to become more sophisticated at creative and documentary writing and speaking. You’ll have Uranus in this house until April 2026, and Uranus, being the planet of the future, suggests to me that you might be exploring the idea of having a revised website or app, or you might introduce a series of podcasts. If you are working on writing a book, it will certainly be published as a digital e-book, in addition to being a hardcover or paperback book. If you are writing a screenplay, it is likely to be streamed on the Internet. New technology is a growing theme in your horoscope and will be very lucky for you now and in years to come, so think about how you can harness high tech to showcase your special talents.
