May 2017: The Torch of PrometheusMay 1, 2017
Astrology of Tuesday, May 2ndMay 1, 2017
The first day of May sees the Moon in Cancer make a square with the potent Mercury-Uranus conjunction, highlighting communication and cognition during the middle of the day. This configuration beams a variety of novel and rebellious ideas through the ether. There is a reasonably strong ambient effect, but the signal will be considerably stronger if you tune in to what Mercury has to say.
Come night, the Moon moves into warm Leo, and from there makes a trine with Venus. Newly returned to Aries, this is the Moon’s first aspect to Venus since the bright planet got back to the Ram’s pasture, and thus a good moment to assess the status of the emotional and relational changes which Venus’ 2017 retrograde cycle has overseen.
