Weekly General Astrology Forecast May 9

9th – Jupiter stationary direct in Virgo

10th – Venus in Taurus trine Jupiter in Virgo

12th – Mercury in Taurus trine Pluto in Capricorn

13th – Mercury conjunct Venus in Taurus

13th – Venus in Taurus trine Pluto in Capricorn

Can you and dare you? That’s the question in the sky this week. Jupiter retrograde should have had all of us thinking about what we dare to dream of and then take it one step further. ‘I think I can’ should have transformed into ‘I know I can!’ as on the 9th Jupiter goes stationary direct in Virgo. Planets slow down before either going retrograde or direct again, then appear to stop before changing their direction. Once Jupiter heads forward then all we have been considering as possibilities during this retrograde period, needs now to become reality by us taking action for ourselves – from a place of knowing that yes, we have to power to make this all happen!

It’s more than that however. A series of truly wonderful aspects light up all the Earth signs this week saying that if we put in the effort rewards will follow but also that nothing comes to us without work. Venus is in her ruling sign of Taurus and trines Jupiter as well as Pluto in Capricorn saying that we have the power to establish a new future path. It’s all about the transformation that can occur when we follow our passion. Mercury still retrograde in Taurus trines Pluto and also meets Venus on the 13th. News around something from the past could feature – especially if we have changed our minds about whether or not we now believe it is possible. Jupiter spends almost half of his time in any given sign in retrograde motion and there is a good reason for this. It’s all about not taking those dreams for granted and understanding that we all have them for a reason – to come true. Jupiter says ‘Who makes it happen?’. The answer is – you do when you believe that you can.
