A Note from Susan Miller
Recently I was having a celebration dinner with Michelle Roque, my talented creative director who had done such brilliant art direction work on my calendars and planners, handling Parisian artist Izak’s work with such grace. Michelle was telling me that some of her friends love Astrology Zone – they only read my summaries to my monthly column. I put down my fork. Hearing this news made me sad. I asked, are you sure, Michelle? She nodded. I strive so to give my readers complete information, and this month, May, I look ahead to the rest of the year to show what is due for you, for planning purposes. Almost none of that vital information will be in my summaries – there was too much to explain.
Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
You will have so much to cheer about this month that I can’t wait to tell you your forecast. So many of the difficulties you’ve faced for months, and even years, are about to fade as a new reality takes hold in May. Uranus, the planet of unexpected developments, is moving out of Aries and your second house of money, and that has been a difficult place for you to deal with since 2010. Surprises with money – often coming out of left field – is nobody’s idea of a good surprise, and you had many of those, one right after the other.
Virgo is the other sign that dealt with this kind of situation for the same length of time, because Virgo and Pisces are six months apart on the horoscope wheel and on the same axis. You had Uranus in your second house of earned income. Virgo hosted Uranus in the eighth house of other people’s money (including loans, inheritance, commissions and bonuses, credit, and even identity theft.)
When a big planet is in one of these two houses, it often pings vibrations across the sky into the other, opposite house. While it is true that you probably made more money than you ever thought possible since 2010, you also were likely to have been hit with bigger monster expenses and taxes that you never imagined could be so large.
In a moment I will show you the full and new moons and a slew of eclipse dates that might resonate with you on your timeline. (Not ALL of the dates I will show you will have been important to you, but some will, and you will see how the cycle worked.)
First, however, I need to show you WHY you should be happy from now on. For the first time since 1934 to 1942, Uranus, the planet associated with rapid, unexpected change, chaos, disruption, and surprise news, is moving into Taurus, a sign that blends beautifully with Pisces (and with your Virgo friends, too). This year, 2018, Uranus will spend six months in Taurus to give you a preview of what the coming seven years will be like. You may be saying, seven years? Yes, Uranus takes 84 years to circle the Sun, and spends seven years in each of the 12 signs and houses it visits. (12 x 7 equals 84).
Uranus will enter Taurus on May 15 and leave on November 15, at which time Uranus will retrograde back to Aries, the place it’s been since 2010. Now you must be saying to yourself, I knew it! Uranus is coming back to Aries to torture me again, oh great, I am doomed. Nothing will ever change. The universe hates me! Dear Pisces, don’t think that because that is not true at all!
Uranus will finally get back to Taurus on March 6, 2019, and stay there until 2026. Here is the critical part to remember. You had the most problem with the Aries and Libra new and full moons and eclipses, for those light your financial houses. They don’t exist from November through early March – you are done with all this! Remember April 15 that occurred last month – the new moon in Aries was your last bout with Uranus, for it was conjunct the Sun and moon. It is true that a new moon marks beginnings, and has a long tail; a new moon I will admit can affect you for six months into the future. That only brings you to October, and by then, the new and full moons can’t hurt you because Uranus will still be in Taurus. You are DONE!
