May Horoscope 2017 – Overview
We have a very significant event on May 9/May 10 (US/AUS) when the Moon’s Nodes change sign from Virgo North Node/Pisces South Node to Leo and Aquarius. The Nodal points are exactly opposite to each other and move backwards through the zodiac staying just over eighteen months in each sign combination. The Nodes represent the karmic journey our souls have selected to work on in this lifetime. The South Node tells the story of the familiar patterns from the past that we have the potential to move away from and heal this time around. The North Node lays out our life purpose or the transformative journey we need to pursue in order to move forward towards our potential.
The Moon’s Nodes are the two points where the Moon’s path around the Earth, intersects the Earths path in connection to the Sun. Your personal karmic past life story and purpose is laid out in the position of the stars at your birth. The transiting Nodes in the sky at any time represent the community karmic journey, that of the world at large. With the North Node in Virgo we have all been focused on a period of analysis and purification for the last eighteen months. Working out what needs to be left behind or cleared away to make space for what is useful and should remain in our lives and the environment we live in on a daily basis. What routines we should adopt to remain healthy in body and mind and how we can best be of service to the world.
With the North Node in Leo May 2017 is the time to shine! Move confidently into the spotlight! You’ll be making the personal changes suggested by the last year and a half’s inner work so dare to become the best you can be!
The zodiac sign Leo brings us creativity and the ability to play in a relaxed childlike manner. Ruled by the Sun it is a confident, vital and courageous energy. Unfortunately the shadow side of Leo leads to pride, vanity, boasting, elitist and egotistical behavior! So we can expect to see some of this happening out in the global and political arenas.
The change of the North Node to Leo occurs a day before the Scorpio Full Moon when Scorpio’s ruler, Pluto Dark Lord of the Underworld, will have moved to make a productive easy opposition or harmonious connection to the Sun and Moon. It will be easier to dig deep into your soul and see what changes are being called for, to make you feel safe, secure and grounded. The North Node will be merging energy with the asteroid for the Roman Goddess Prosperina, Queen of the Underworld, whilst her husband Pluto, will oppose opposes her Greek equivalent Persephone. The pull to your underworld realms will be irresistible at this point.
Your mind will be working well at every level with Mercury and his higher octave Uranus together in Aries forming a positive easy flowing Fire triangle in the sky to Saturn in Sagittarius and the North Node. It will be easy to see the right way forward to achieve your goals.
