Ketu conjunctions and eclipses and then Planetary Celebrations
Many challenges and many celebrations - Sun Ketu conjunction on 6th May, Mars Mercury on 7th, Mercury Ketu Moon with Solar eclipse on 9th and then Mars Ketu on 12th and then planets struggles of the planet ease up and as Jupiter Venus and Mercury gather in Taurus- the second half of the month is a lot better.
Ketu conjunctions and eclipses
Sun Ketu conjunction on 6th May, Mars Mercury on 7th, Mercury Ketu Moon with Solar eclipse on 9th and then Mars Ketu on 12th - all these ar ehappening with Saturn in opposition and there is no aspect from Jupiter to diffuse the situations. Usually so much challenges keep the stress levels up but they can also bring up unusual situations.
These will impact Aries, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Scorpio ascendants and Moon signs will have to deal with it. The eclipse takes place in Aries and Libra, both signs are due for many changes.
The main aspect of difficult transits is how we react to it. We must know the the planets are not easy and therefore the choices are limited. We should wait for the stroms to clear up to make any important decision.
Jupiter Venus and Mercury in Taurus and Gemini
Venus moves into Taurus on 5 May and is with Jupiter for the rest of the month. Mercury will join on 13 May and make a positive signature of benefics in Taurus. 13 May signals the starts of the separation of the malefic effects and beginning of positive healing months. The planets will move together into Gemini. First Mercury goes into Gemini, in its own house on 27 May and then Venus joins it on 29 May followed immediately by Jupiter ( More on Jupiter in Gemini in next month's planetary news). Jupiter move from Taurus to Gemini is regarded as auspicious as the time of changeover has special signification regarding pushkara and the purification of rivers. The belief is that the last 12 days of Jupiter in one sign and the first twleve days in the next sign is when all the deities come down to earth with Pushkara. click to read more about it
Instead of Malefic influences we start having benefic energies. The strength of Venus and Mercury this month is positive for many of the signs that have been struggling the last few months- Taurus, Gemini, Virgo and Libra. Taurus will speciall enjoy the later part of May as three benefics bless them.
Sun and Mars are also in Taurus. Sun moves on 15th and is away from the influences of Saturn and Ketu and Mars moves on 23rd and is also moving out of the nodal axis and the frustations of Saturn opposition. Taturus will have five planets together from 23 to 27 May. This togetherness of planets is a theme of 2013- they are travelling together from one sign to another. Next month the focus is on Gemini.
This together is not negative as Sun and Mars are surrounded by benefic influences rather than malefic ones.
