“Touch Base With Home Base 

Hold up one moment…yes, the air is full of Spring and Summer is well on it’s way. We are ready and wanting to venture forth, jumping into travel plans, projects, vacations, and connection to Nature. Slow down, take a pause and reflect. This is a momentary fermata where we can review where we have been, appreciate where we are going and Touch Base with Home Base.”  The astrology and frequencies in the field will soon enough flow us down stream; however, now is a little time to connect into the the heart, home and hearth. 

There is a lot of astrological movement this Moon cycle with 4 planets grounding into their home signs. This can be very sweet, as it is a chance to touch home base and reconnect to what our values are. Then, we can revisit our vision and continue our quest to the future. The need to touch home base is accentuated by the Total Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio on May 15. This Eclipse will be visible across all the Americas and will reach it’s height at 10:14pm MST. Look to the East starting at 8pm as the moon rises as it starts out as a bright super moon. Over the next 2 hours, it will gradually start to occult and shade to grey, amber and then a total orange- holding for over an hour. 

This is the second of 2 eclipses and is particularly potent as Saturn will T-Square both the Sun and Moon, and The North & South Nodes of Fate. Eclipses cut energies and can help us clear Karmas. This eclipse is on the South Node in Scorpio, which is about what we need to Heal, Resolve, and Bring to the light around Money, Power, Death, Sexuality, The Mysteries of Life and Transformative shifts. Saturn is watching over all of this as the Cosmic Judge, Teacher, and Wise Elder. Uranus is also sitting on the North Node in Taurus, and throws in an element of the wild, unconscious, and unbelievable.

On May 17, Mars conjuncts Neptune in Pisces. Neptune is in it’s home sign as it takes a 14 year joinery through Pisces (2011-2025). While Mars and Neptune can seemingly be contrary energies, here they have an opportunity to harmonize. Mars is Will Power, Determination, and Strength. Neptune is Spiritual, Visionary, Non-Physical, and All Embracing. Together, Mars can be the spark and will to take action on a Vision, Dream, and transformative Process- with the ability to actually follow through. 

May 19 heralds the Sun in Taurus trining Pluto in Capricorn. Sun is our Personal Self, and Pluto is the Soul. Both are in stable Earth Signs and Trines are harmonious energies. This is a day when your Ego-Self aligns with your High-Self. Soul Shine Everyone! 

Sun enter the sign of Gemini from May 20-Jun 21 for a new astrological month. Gemini energy is the height of Spring time when Mother Earth is abundant with Life, Vibration, Diversity, Energy, and Curiosity. Find the wonder all around you. 

Retrograding Mercury continues backwards to conjunct the Sun for a 2nd of 3 unions on May 22.  Mercury is retrograde from May 10 – Jun 3 is now passing back through its shadow. Think back to mid/late April and review what was going on in your life. This may be a revisit to resolve any out of balance Taurus energies. Too Complex? Simplify. Over indulgent? Cleanse. 

Welcome home Mars as you enter your native sign of Aries from May 24 – July 5. When planets enter their homes signs they are empowered, forward in consciousness, and realized in their energy. Mars/Aries is the positive Masculine and Yang Energy. Touch Base With Home Base and find your strength and inner authority. 

Venus follows suite, entering her home sign of Taurus from May 28-Jun 22. The positive is reconnecting to core values, self-love, and abundance of spirt and wealth. The negative is greed, lust, and over indulgence. 

Mars conjuncts Jupiter in Aires on May 29. This is BIG ENERGY. Jupiter is the great expander, Truth and what we are Questing for. Mars is activation, taking the first step and Just Doing it! 

May 30 it the New Moon in Gemini. New moons are a time for reflection, ceremony, and setting a Sankalpa- an intention and vow of the heart for the next moonth cycle. Stay curious and seek wonder. 

Mercury goes Direct on Jun 3, but will still be in the shadow until Jun 18. Moving forward, mercury will return to it’s home sign of Gemini on Jun 13, reigniting your New Moon intentions. 

Saturn goes Retrograde from Jun 2- Oct 23. Saturn is Karma, Authority, Justice, and Wisdom. This is a 4 month review reconnecting to our Home Base of Inner Authorship of our lives and standing in what we know is right and true. 

Finally, Venus conjuncts Saturn on Jun 11 in Taurus. Anything goes here with electric Uranus around Romance, Finance, Earth, and our bodies. Hold a positive intention and stay steady as sudden exciting shifts unfold. Remember to “touch base with home base” of the heart and see you at the Sagittarius Full Moon on Jun 14.
