Jupiter Stations Retrograde, Mars Enters Leo - At Last! Love and Relationships Enhanced.
Media astrologer Shelley Ackerman of radio and TV brings her astrological insights to Wedlok.com in a weekly horoscope column every Thursday.
Look for a boon to love, romance and relationships in general, as our men will be a lot more motivated to take action.
For more than seven months, fiery Mars, the planet of drive and physical prowess has been back and forth in watery Cancer. On May 9, the God of War enters Leo (through July 1st), a sign in which the red planet is extremely comfortable and able to express himself with greater ease and confidence.
At the same time, Jupiter, planet of plenty, turns retrograde for four months, encouraging us to literally hold our horses before jumping in to anything while providing the opportunity to rethink our financial and relationship philosophies. For example, this is not the time for a quickie marriage in Vegas for couple's who barely know one another!
Amplifying this “measure twice and cut once” energy, is Mercury’s entrance into the pre-retrograde shadow period on May 12. This happens three times a year.
While the retrograde itself doesn’t kick in until Memorial Day (May 26), this slowing down phase is a precursor. During this time, it’s especially wise to be careful with all travel and communication. If it’s your habit to blab on a cell phone in public- do so at your won risk. Someone other than the person on the other end may be listening to your every word.
