We move from Beltane, May 1, to May 5th-6th, and its Cross-Quarter Day with Full Moon at 16°01 Taurus/Scorpio and Global Meditation, to May 20, New Moon at 0°21 Gemini, to June 4th-6th, Full Moon at 14°14 Sagittarius/Gemini and the rare — never again in our lifetime — transit of Venus across the Sun.
That’s the surface structure for the month, the emotional wave we’ll all enjoy/endure inso far as we are still entranced or, as Gurdjieff put it, “food for the Moon.” Deep, wordless, stubborn and penetrating to begin, lighter and more communicative by the end.
Meanwhile, we continue to undergo the deep structure of the transit of Uranus square Pluto (search this site for many posts on this subject), moving closer and closer to exactness for the first time in this long cycle in late June at 8° Aries/Capricorn with the first of six volatile crossings that for the next three years will destabilize and pulverize old infrastructures that concentrated power in the hands of fewer and fewer at the expense of the many to the point where the entire hierarchy topples and implodes (see Chris Hedges post, today).
Here one astrologer’s view of Beltane:
