- May 26: Jupiter square Saturn 13º Virgo versus 13º Sagittarius
There is an old saying about the markets that one must ‘go away in May’. There are a lot of reasons for this, but one of them is that the birthdate of the New York Stock Exchange is May 17 and around peoples’ ‘birthdays’ they usually pull back getting ready for the new year, or, the new cycle. With transit Saturn which limits (so we regroup) and in a very challenging aspect to transit Jupiter (normally an archetype that offers possibility and vision) on May 26, those ideas percolating for the last weeks may need a bit more finessing. Expansion is great, and, since Jupiter went direct in mid degrees of Virgo, the feeling is that it is a good time to move in a forward direction. What often happens if that when we move in a forward direction, we fail to take the less traveled road, failing to think of something bigger or outside the box of ordinary thought. I think this is where many of us find ourselves stuck — because of fear, or, security issues, or the if ‘I don’t do this, what will I do’? question.
A new vision, job, opportunity is possible and as Jupiter and Saturn find themselves in a 90º angle to each other — the possibilities are there, but they need to get organized, listed, tasked. What is the long term plan, is that idea you have going to have stop gaps in place for the future, is there a Plan B in place? Thinking ahead and continuing discussions regarding your plan require patience.
It seems as though nothing is getting settled, but by verbalizing ideas, then waiting, then thinking, you really are getting a lot more done than realized. With Mars still retrograde (Mars strategizes), the best laid plans appear blocked and that is really for the best in the end. When Mars stations to go forward on June 29, things start clicking into place about 10 days prior to that date. This week, however, is about asking the questions that no one dares to ask and then ‘put the pen down’ as we used to do in real estate when closing. Say nothing. Wait.
