<> May 3-6 (approx.) Beltane, the High Sabbat of the Pagan calendar, sun at the midpoint of Taurus (one of the four cross-quarter days).
<> May 10, the planets Mars and Venus will appear to pass so close to one another that, to the naked eye, the Roman god of war and the Roman goddess of love will become one.
<> May 12, Taurus New Moon
<> May 14, an extremely rare "superaspect" involving the moon, Venus, Mars and Saturn in which the four planets align in four dimensions of space and time, kind of like a strange eclipse.
<> May 15, Mercury stations retrograde for 23 days. Note that for about four days on either side of the station, there is what's known as a "Mercury storm" when the retrograde effect is at its most pronounced.
<> May 20, Sun enters Gemini.
<> May 25, Saturn-Pluto align exactly for the third time since Aug. 2001, and the last time until 2035.
<> May 26, lunar eclipse, Full Moon in Sagittarius, during Memorial Day weekend.
<> June 6, Sun opposes Pluto.
<> June 8, Mercury stations direct. Mercury storm is about from the 5th to the 12th.
<> June 10, total solar eclipse and Gemini New Moon at 7:46 pm EDT, exactly aligned with the Saturn-Pluto axis and with George W. Bush's natal chart. Be glad you're not him.
<> June 21, Summer Solstice.
<> June 24, lunar eclipse at the Capricorn Full Moon.
