- May 9: Jupiter goes direct at 13º Virgo 15′
This is a great week to go fishing. And I don’t mean just going fishing (although I really am going fishing!). Fishing can be fishing for ideas, fishing for news, fishing for opportunity, fishing for a new perspective on an old, outworn, but still a good idea. With transiting Venus in a wonderful aspect to transiting Jupiter (which just went direct on the 9th), if you ask, it is very likely that someone or something will bite. This positive energy sustains itself through Tuesday, Wednesday, and on Thursday the 12th, is the perfect time to ‘ask’ the question, ‘close’ the deal, ‘step up’ and take a little risk as Mercury (communications is in perfect aspect to Pluto, which is all about making choices).
As Jupiter stations direct on Sunday May 8, I will be attending my lovely niece’s wedding in the Chicago. That week I am doing business, seeing some clients and attending the National Hellenic Museum’s annual gala on the 14th of May. A little plug for the National Hellenic Museum — which is a delightful LEEDS, qualified building near the University of Illinois Circle campus and near Greek Town. It is a delightful section in Chicago that has some of the best Greek restaurants with mouthwatering Greek cuisine (I am, of course, impartial 🙂 ). The National Hellenic Museum, right across the street, is a wonderful place to visit with its many changing exhibits of Greek Culture, Greek Arts, and unusual events like the recent “Trial of Antigone”, where she was found ‘not guilty’ of treason by sitting judges. It is a very unusual facility with a wonderful library, archives, and a wonderful venue for all sorts of events with its living roof and lovely spaces.
