What's happening in May, 2017...
news on the retrograde planets front! Venus is already direct and that pesky little Mercury will be going direct on May 3.
But just to be safe, continue all cautionary measures through the 6th. As
mentioned last month, Saturn will be in retrograde motion for several more months, but instead of creating challenges that
aspect often eases personal karmic lessons. Plus, although Pluto's retro period also will not end for several months,
that tends to involve external/global issues rather than personal situations. The only one that might cause
some annoyance is Jupiter, which will continue its retrograde motion through June 9, and tends to delay progress in one's

May's Full Moon in Scorpio could trigger anything from
a flirtation to a full-blown sexual bonfire, especially if that is your sign
The sun begins
its annual visit to Gemini on May 21st and, whether or not that is your sun sign, get ready to feel a creative spark or two
during the following four weeks. If you can't jump on an incoming idea immediately, be sure to write it down!

A New Moon in Gemini is the perfect time
to launch a creative project, whether personally or in business.
in April, 2017...
As April begins, Venus & Jupiter are in retrograde motion, which tends to delay the receipt of money, especially
if connected to your career. On the 20th, Pluto enters its retro period for several months, which tends to involve external/global
issues. The most noticeable difficulties will be presented during Mercury's "backward" movement from the 9th
through May 3rd, plus a possible spillover effect three days before and after. Anticipate difficulties with computers, cars,
contracts and communication. The good news is that Saturn should ease up on personal karmic lessons once it goes retro on
the 6th for about five months. Escaping into a wonderful book will be a good way to navigate April's challenging waters.

April's Full Moon in Libra will support intentions to clear away situations that are causing an unbalance or discord
in your life, but make that wish after it peaks rather than the night before.

A New Moon in Taurus is the ideal time to wish for something or someone beautiful to
come into your life.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Numerologically speaking,
2+0+1+7 = a "1" year, which marks the beginning of a brand new 9-year cycle for Planet Earth. 2017 promises to deliver a number of surprises and a plethora of fresh starts, so
keep an open mind when an unexpected opportunity knocks at your door. 2016 was a "9" year, which marked an
end to a cycle, as well as endings in general. To discover what 2017 may hold for you personally or understand where your
efforts should be focused, I suggest you determine your current year's numerology, which is actually based on your birthday.
