Astrology Planetary Patterns for May 2016

May 2016 continues with mystical Grand Earth Trines, and finishes with a Mutable Grand Cross.

Mutable T-Squares (containing Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces) and Grand Earth Trines marked the month of April. May continues along those same lines. It starts with two very close Earth Trines, linked by Pluto in Capricorn.

The month ends with a Mutable Grand Cross, as the Sun and Venus enter the airy, whimsical sign of Gemini.

May 01, 2016
Grand Trine: Sun in Taurus 11° , Jupiter in Virgo 13° , Pluto in Capricorn 17°
Grand Trine: Mercury in Taurus 23° , Pluto in Capricorn 17° , North Node in Virgo 19°
T-Square: Jupiter in Virgo 13° , Mars in Sagittarius 7° , Neptune in Pisces 11°

The two Earth Trines last well through the whole month of May in some form. They are joined by Mercury in Taurus on May 8th, and then Venus in Taurus on May 12th. The Sun speeds ahead mid-May, leaving the arrangement but Mercury ties the pattern together for the rest of the month.

These trines could be considered as one as they are so close. But usually 8 degree orbs are used to note a trine aspect. On May 24th though, the positions of these planets become close enough that the trines officially do merge into one masterful Grand Trine.

May 08, 2016
Grand Cross: Neptune in Pisces 11° , Moon in Gemini 7° , Jupiter in Virgo 13° , Mars in Sagittarius 6° , Saturn in Sagittarius 14°

As was the case for the last two months, the Moon briefly passes through Gemini on May 8th and completes the ongoing Mutable T-Squares creating a Mutable Grand Cross. Saturn additionally joins the party, sitting in mid-Sagittarius.

May 11, 2016
Grand Trine: Mercury in Taurus 18° , Jupiter in Virgo 13° , Sun in Taurus 20° , Venus in Taurus 13° , Pluto in Capricorn 17° North Node in Virgo 18°

May 11th marks one of those beautiful moments where a whole 6 planets join together in a Grand Earth Trine formation! This includes the fast moving planets - Sun, Mercury, and Venus.

May 28, 2016
Grand Trine: Mercury in Taurus 15° , North Node in Virgo 17° , Jupiter in Virgo 13° , Pluto in Capricorn 17°
Grand Cross: Sun in Gemini 6° , Jupiter in Virgo 13° , Saturn in Sagittarius 13° , Neptune in Pisces 11°

On the 28th, the Sun passes through Gemini completing the Mutable T-Square, turning it into a Mutable Grand Cross. This is sure to amplify and activate the energy of the Grand Cross. Four planets sit at four corners of the sky - enchanting.

The Sun now starts to inch slowly through Gemini, moving with the T-Square, meaning that this Grand Cross lasts through to the end of the month.

May 30, 2016
Grand Trine: Mercury in Taurus 16° , North Node in Virgo 17° , Jupiter in Virgo 13° , Pluto in Capricorn 17°
Grand Cross: Sun in Gemini 9° , Neptune in Pisces 11° , Jupiter in Virgo 13° , Venus in Gemini 7° , Saturn in Sagittarius 13°

Venus also begins to fold into the Grand Cross, inching in from 5 degrees Gemini, ending the month with a 5 planet Grand Cross. Quite spectacular.
