The New Moon is Tuesday May 11 at 21◦ of Taurus — a solid and functional project energy. With Mars in a good aspect to the Sun, finishing that kitchen project (Mars is, after all in Cancer) or getting a financial budget together (Taurus is the natural second house of cash flow and budgeting) helps sort out any deficit spending or unaccounted for expenses. Let me say that it is important to start doing this now since next year, 2022, will bring some clear messages about debt and deficits in the US government.
Try to pay down debt, lower payments, and conduct a forensic examination of your financial life and not wait until the last minute when several issues will surface in 2022. It is my contention that the rates will be going up as we enter the latter part of this year and that if we haven’t changed the way we are working into a much more efficient way of spending our energy and time, we won’t be as prepared as we could be if we start planning the numbers in this next two months.
The first Lunar eclipse (full moon eclipse) in Taurus and Scorpio is at the end of November 2021. The last one was about 18.6 years ago. If you are familiar with the McWhirter Financial Cycle (see drawing), when the eclipses begin to move into Taurus and Scorpio, we begin a transition in the value and price cycle.
Louise McWhirter’s financial cycle works beautifully and suggests that over the course of the 18.6-year return cycle of the lunar nodes, prices rise, and prices fall. Of course, the eclipses always run with the lunar nodes. This illustration is from Lt. Commander David Williams’ book on Financial Astrology.
The first eclipse in Taurus is on November 19, 2021 and it is important to time NOW in the spring to start your analysis of where you stand financially. Do not wait until year’s end.
This month — however – is a Lunar Eclipse (Full Moon) at 5-degree Sagittarius opposite the Sun at 5-degree Gemini on May 27, 2021 and it is the last of the Full Moon eclipses in Sagittarius which are often, what I term, the ‘roto rooter’ eclipses, where unaddressed issues of the last year and a half finally get moving forward to change. This eclipse often activates 90-days after around late August 2021 and so any big financial changes that you really know you need to make, and you are putting off — need addressing now with this New Moon in Taurus this week and throughout the next month until the next New Moon on June 10 (also an eclipse, but a Solar eclipse) . I only suggest preparation- nothing else. You will be better prepared and ready if you address issues now with rates still low rather than waiting until Autumn 2021.
With Jupiter leaving Aquarius and entering Pisces for just a few brief weeks until late July, this offers a little preview at the movies, of what to expect starting in late December 2021 when Jupiter re-enters Pisces and continues throughout 2022. Jupiter’s 12-year return cycle lines up with Neptune (which can enhance credit debt) in April 2022. Jupiter’s entrance into Pisces promises more opportunities for creativity, artisanship (there is a fabulous article in the Smithsonian Magazine of January/February 2021 about the growing international artisan movement). If we get more organized technically this year, next year provides opportunities for more creative endeavors. And when Jupiter enters Pisces (water sign) it works well with Uranus (the magician and inventor) in Taurus (earth).
Want to learn an astrological technique? I am presenting an ONLINE event for the San Diego NCGR on Saturday, May 15 from 11 am to 2 pm Pacific Time on ‘Age Cycles’. If you are interested in attending, please contact Donna Stellhorn whose email is below. This is an excellent class showing different corresponding astrological cycles that happen to individuals at specific ages. A grid is provided in the class for you to keep at your workspace. I would love to see you there.
There are crossovers of certain astrological cycles at certain ages. For example, at approximately age 45-years old, depending on what time of year a person was born, several astrological cycles converge. This educational as well as informative lecture provides a concrete format in which to ‘check’ where your client is at when they come to see you for a reading. Georgia Stathis, who taught the undergraduate program at Kepler College, provides a tool showing the places where these cycles converge. She presents several different examples of natal as well as company charts to show how you can instantly identify the most probable issue your client is confronting. Age is everything!
