The big news in May is the triple conjunction of Jupiter, Chiron, and Neptune which culminates on the 26th and 27th of May. We have been building up to this for quite some time ? this is a tremendous force for healing and for realigning our inner sense of purpose to fit with our outer dharma and destiny. You can read more about this major cycle here, but essentially what we have with this combination is the longing of the soul to experience a life that has a deeper meaning (Neptune) combining with the necessity to work through any blocks and painful experiences that are standing in our way of that goal (Chiron). The expansion of this process in a way that can be beneficial or simply more painful is facilitated by Jupiter. Jupiter is usually considered a positive influence, and because it provides an expansive force when combined with Chiron it can be a wonderful aide to the healing process. But that healing process when Chiron is involved requires that we revisit our wounds, and this can be extremely difficult too, depending upon the experiences that are involved here.
As the month of May begins, we find only one planet representing the water element: Uranus which is in Pisces. Water is the element of the emotional realm, and when water is underrepresented it becomes more difficult to manage our emotions. Uranus is a dry planet, and in a water sign it does not provide the watery flow that assists in the processing of emotions. Other than the Moon (especially the Scorpio Full Moon on May 9th), we will not have any planets other than Uranus in water signs until the Sun enters Cancer in June. Until then we are living in a realm of ideas and action, with a predominance of air and fire.
