The Lunar Eclipse on Wednesday, May 26 is at 6:14 a.m. CDT in 5 ° Sagittarius. How well you are handling the current Saturn stationary point will have a lot to do with how you experience the Lunar Eclipse. If you are staying calm despite Saturn's limitations and frustrations, the extra emotional surge of the Lunar Eclipse will not throw you off base. Then you can enjoy the Sagittarian energy which is upbeat and optimistic. Relax and allow yourself to enjoy the moment without a particular agenda toward achievement.
Tips for staying calm under difficult Saturn aspects, including station points:
On May 29th, Mercury goes retrograde at 24° Gemini. For several days around this date be cautious in all communications. Think before speaking. Re-read emails and texts before sending. Don't sign anything without closely reading the fine print. Make sure your calendar/planner is up to date and look at it (instead of using your memory) when making appointments.

The New Moon is tomorrow, Tuesday, May 11, 2021 at 2:00 p.m. CDT in 21° Taurus. With this symbol of new beginnings in an earth sign, it's often a time of planting a seed. This can be a good time for planting seeds in the actual earth in your garden. It can also be a good time for planting a positive thought or creative idea into your consciousness.
You can write your own positive thought or try this expansive affirmation:
The Divine plan of my life now takes shape
The sign Taurus is ruled by the planet Venus in astrology. So this New Moon is also a good time to start projects related to the arts.
Jupiter moves out of Aquarius and into the sign Pisces on May 13th. Jupiter moves through each sign in about 12 months. The symbol of Jupiter in Pisces is an open heart of generosity and compassion. I talk about “The Heart of Compassion and the Blessings of the Divine Mother” in my Mother's Day meditation for the Temple of Kriya Yoga.

End of May Planets
The end of the month lineup of Saturn retrograde (May 22), Lunar Eclipse (May 26) and Mercury retrograde (May 29) suggest that extra responsibilities may pop up then, so getting important tasks and projects finished in the next seven days will benefit you. I'll write more in my next post.
