May ’24 Newsletter

From the Desk of Leslie Marlar, May ’24

STAR Guild met on Apr 23rd under a full moon and had an insightful get together. We looked at the effects of planets in Pisces, Aries, and Taurus and what they are bringing us due to their actions in our charts. We are always watching the sky to see what it is bringing to us and to the world.

Next month, we will meet on Tuesday, the 28th at 6pm on Skype.

This past month many events happened.

Israel killed 3 top Iranian commanders on the 1st. The Iranians attacked with 300 missiles on the 13th. And Israel answered with a limited attack deep into Iran on the 18th. Throughout April, Jupiter and Uranus have been close to each other in Taurus and very close to the Sun in the Israel chart. Pluto is also opposing their Moon. Israel has been moved to action since the Oct. 7th attack. They have many planets in fixed signs. Pluto in or near Aquarius since March of ’23 is the long term suffering of the people of Gaza due to the Isreali actions toward Hamas. Pluto in Aquarius describes extremes for large segments of humanity; it will be there for 40 years.

The Quake in Taiwan on the 2nd happened under a last quarter Moon in Capricorn. Destructive Mars was nearing structural Saturn, and Jupiter and Uranus were on the Ascendant, and 1st house ruler, Venus, was with Neptune, “shaker of earth”.

On the 10th, 2 days after the solar eclipse, there was very heavy rain in Slidel and New Orleans. Also on the 10th Mars was with Saturn in wet sign Pisces.

On the 11th, news of O.J. Simpson’s death came with the Moon in Gemini where his 10th house Mars in Gemini was in his chart. He is famous for Mars in Gemini which translates to: athletics, broadcasting, and double murder.

All month, the news has focused on the 1st Trump trial. Jupiter and Uranus are in his tenth house, which brings him attention. Uranus brings unexpected events and Jupiter brings good events, unless you are in trouble with the law. To many, the law is in question. Jupiter leaves Taurus, the sign of his Midheaven and goes to Gemini, the sign of his Sun. It will be interesting to see if he has a shift in his events corresponding to this shift of this planet.

On April 16th, the day after a 1st quarter moon in wet Cancer, Dubai had very heavy rain.

On Apr 20th, 23rd, and 24th, the house, then the Senate, and then the President signed a $95 billion aid package to Ukraine, Israel, Gaza, and Taiwan. The conjunction of Uranus and Jupiter in Taurus was perfect on the 20th.

Under the full moon on Apr 23, Tn. by bill allowed teachers to carry concealed arms.

Tornados ravaged towns in Nebraska, Iowa, and Oklahoma on the 26th and 27th. Loss planet, Saturn; destruction planet, Mars, and extreme Neptune were in Pisces from the 17th to the 29th degree. On the 26th and 27th, the Moon was in Sagittarius, squaring these planets. The Moon highlighted these planets during these devastating events.

In May I will be watching the following sky events.

Mars will be exactly with Neptune in wet sign, Pisces on the 29th, I’ll note these events in the June newsletter. I expect a strange events, secretive events and a weather event. This may also be work on the deep channel at Baltimore Harbour. P.S. Note the tornado events above – Mars and Neptune were very close.

Active Mars will be in active Aries all month. I expect more activism. Mercury also in Aries since week 2 of March, & still there in weeks 1 and 2, adds to this.

At mid-month Mercury squares Pluto; expect awareness of extreme events.

The Sun and Venus will conjunct Jupiter and Uranus at mid-month, and bring financial events. And at the end of the month, Mercury is with Uranus bring unexpected financial events.

Jupiter leaves financial and natural Taurus and goes to communicative and traveling Gemini on the 25th of May. Our events will shift from one area to the other in the world. And Geminis will have their year of benefits from Jupiter as Taurus’ year ends. We will all note the shifts in our charts. Look to the house of Gemini in your chart for the changes which should be good.

In May the phases are on the 30th &1st, the 7th & 8th the 14th & 15th, the 23rd & 24th and the 30th. They are in Aquarius, Taurus, Leo, Sagittarius, and Pisces respectively. Expect weather events.

The New Moon is in Taurus on the 7th & 8th and brings a new start in finances. The Full Moon in Sagittarius on the 23rd & 24th focuses on communication and traveling.

Fairly good days this month are: 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 17, 18, 22, 23, 27, 28, 31.
