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.
This new moon of May 11 will received glimmering vibrations from Pluto, orbiting now in your house of hopes and wishes. Pluto will give your venture a big shot of adrenaline, helping you see results sooner than you might expect.
At the same time as the new moon, on May 11, Mars, another high energy planet, will be at 11-degrees Cancer and signal Uranus in Taurus, 11 degrees—this will translate into the ability to create innovative, exciting ideas. These two planets will work together to offer you an opportunity to strut your stuff in the arena of communication, a growing theme this month.
Venus is the natural ruler of your solar third house of home, and as luck would have it, Pluto is sending a bouquet to Venus too, helping to ensure the success of your venture. The universe thinks you might need Neptune, your ruler and planet that is the defender of the arts, so Neptune will send shimmering rays to the Sun and new moon in earth sign Taurus, a very fertile combination to generate ideas. You have so much going for you!
Eclipses bring changes and new directions. The events of this eclipse May 26 can set you on a new path.… This is a positive eclipse, meant to open you up to new techniques and to help you find additional ways to showcase your talents.
Wait—there is more. On April 23, Mars moved to Cancer, your fifth house that sparks of new truelove and care for children (as well as ruling the conception of a child, pregnancy, and birth). That is not all—the fifth house also is the repository of your creativity, and now, with energetic Mars in this house, you will be bursting with ideas. I believe you will be given the platform in which to express those artistic expressions, and if you look for them you will find them.
Of course, having Mars in your fifth house will also spur romance for you, even if you think it’s impossible to find love in a pandemic. It looks like you might take a short road trip to a new environment, a resort-like setting, where the kind of singles you’d like to meet would go. This could be the place you have a fateful meeting. Mars in Cancer will make you more attractive and increase your magnetism. (If you want to have a professional photograph taken, you might consider booking May 30 when Mars and Neptune are in heavenly trine.)
Moving chronologically through the month, I have the biggest news for you!
Jupiter will be in Pisces from May 13 until July 28 for the first time in 12 years to give you a small window on a much bigger theme to come in 2022. Jupiter has been in Aquarius since December 19, 2020, a perfectly good place for Jupiter to be, for you tend to get secret guardian angels in the form of influential VIPs behind the scenes who are saying good things about your performance, and who will help you get ahead, even if you don’t know that these real-life angels are watching out for you. (These are not the Disney fuzzy-blue angles.)
That’s helpful energy, but what’s coming is much, much bigger and brighter for you!
Jupiter will give you a taste of how it feels to be the celestial favorite of the zodiac and move into a view of your Emerald Year from the giver of gifts and luck. Jupiter in Pisces will open the door to offers you only used to dream about. Your health, career, money, and even your love life will prosper and grow. You will meet new people in the coming three months, and among them, some will become friends, and some will help by introducing you to other important people who can help you.
If you are doing a deal of importance, try to get it launched in the first half of May or wait until July. There is a problem with June—Mercury will be retrograde from May 29 to June 22.
It is still okay to use your golden vibrations from Jupiter in June, but it would be best to go back to projects that were put aside because of the pandemic, lack of funding, or for other reasons. Going back to the past—in terms of people or ventures that were held up—is lucky for you when Mercury is retrograde. The end of June and July will be sterling, too. Remember, Jupiter will be with you—in Pisces—from May 13 to July 28.
The Pisces who will feel this energy the strongest will be those with birthdays that fall at the start of the sign, February 19-26. You will also feel this rewarding energy if you have Pisces rising 0-2 degrees or if you have the natal moon in that sign and degree, and you can add a plus five degrees Do you have a natal planet in Pisces, Cancer, Scorpio, Taurus, Virgo, or Capricorn at 0 to 2 degrees in you natal chart? If so that planet will be lit up and work hard for you. You are entering into a magical realm, so have your wish list ready. Never has it been more possible to see the manifestation of a dream, dear Pisces. The rest of the Pisces will get their moment in the spotlight when Jupiter returns to Pisces from December 28, 2021, into 2022.
This month also has a lunar eclipse, May 29 in Sagittarius, 5 degrees. This eclipse will bring about a culmination in your career, and it might be a moment of great reward.
Your time is coming dear Pisces, and although the biggest beneficial trend for you starts next year as soon as 2022 takes off, you will get an enchanting preview of what’s to come now. One of your two ruling planets, Jupiter, the giver of gifts and luck, will enter Pisces May 13 and remain there until July 28. After that, Jupiter will return to Aquarius until year’s end, December 28, 2021. (Your other ruling planet is Neptune—Jupiter was designated by the ancients to be your ruler before Neptune was discovered. Modern astrologers look at both planets when discerning your outlook.)
Jupiter will re-enter Pisces from December 28, 2021, to May 10, 2022. Later in the year 2022, Jupiter will return to Pisces from October 29 to December 20, 2022. This is a critically beneficial time for you, because we only get approximately 8 visits of Jupiter to our sign in a lifetime (assuming you will live to 96). Jupiter takes 12 years to circle the Sun, so you have had to wait a long time for this brilliant aspect.
When you have Jupiter in your sign, you get the cornucopia of goodies. You will meet powerful people who will want to help you get to the next level. You might travel next year (2022), if authorities say it is fine to go, because Jupiter is associated with broadening experiences, and travel can surely do that for you. If you can’t travel, you may still find that your work has international application. Best of all, the things that tend to happen when Jupiter is in your sign is that you may find true love. The ancients wrote that Jupiter in your sign (the aspect you will have May 13 to July 28 and for most of 2022) is the best aspect you can have to find your one truelove. No matter what your dearest wish might be, you will have a chance to capture it, especially in 2022.
Pisces born February 19-26 are the most likely to feel the benefits of Jupiter’s position this month. Pisces born later will get their bonanza next year in 2022. Every Pisces will be included—none will be left out.
This month, you have a new moon on May 11 in your short-distance travel house, so you may get a chance to take a getaway trip over the ensuing weekend, leaving Friday night, May 14 through Sunday, May 16. You may want to visit your cousin or sibling, or if you are more mature, one of your children.
The part of your chart that will be lit up also rules agreements, so you may be asked to sign papers this month, and if so, do it early in May, leaving a space of days prior to May 29, the date Mercury will go retrograde through June 22.
One of your best periods for romance, shopping, and fun will be during May’s first week when Venus will be in Taurus, an earth sign that blends beautifully with your water-sign Pisces. From May 8 to June 2, Venus will move through Gemini and brighten your home sector, allowing you to make changes there that you will love.
You have more reason to be excited about your romantic life. Mars is now in Cancer (since April 23 to stay until June 11), lighting your fifth house of true love for the first time in two years. Mars will make you more attractive and magnetic, and you may meet a romantic interest through your work.
May 30, when Mars reaches out to your ruler Neptune in the most harmonious way possible, is a great day for generating blockbuster creative ideas, for your imagination will be working at peak levels. It’s also the day for a romantic date, whether you are married, have been dating a long time, or are meeting for the first time.
Turning to your career, all eyes will be on you at the lunar eclipse on May 26 in Sagittarius when a major project reaches a finish, or when the public, and your industry, get wind of your victories. This eclipse may find you winning an award, getting unusual, favorable media publicity, or being given a new position job or major promotion. If you are self-employed, you may now win a prestigious new client. It is fortunate that Jupiter, giver of gifts and luck, will be in Pisces by this time of the month, giving you support and an element of luck, all the while sprinkling you with pixie dust to help you see your career wishes come true. The eclipse will fall at the very top of your chart, where the 12 would be on the face of a clock, bringing attention to all you’ve done so far in your career.
Eclipses bring changes and new directions. The events of this eclipse May 26 can set you on a new path. Should anything adverse happen (not likely—there is no indication anything would), know that the person who caused you unhappiness did you a favor, opening you up to new and exciting professional opportunities. This is a positive eclipse, meant to open you up to new techniques and to help you find additional ways to showcase your talents.
