Astrology for Healers and Therapists for May 2017

 

Before I look at this month’s charts I must point out that the interpretation is mainly for therapists dealing with problematic situations.  That is why I seem to emphasise the problem or negative side of life rather than the positive.  Of course the charts indicate a general situation but the leaning must be for those clients or patients who are struggling in some way.

 

First do please note that the following is using the WESTERN FOUR ELEMENT system based in western magical and astrological understanding.  The individual therapist must make the translation to the Eastern Five Element system that is usual in Shiatsu and Acupuncture theory.  If you have forgotten the explanation about Elemental and Modal make up then do refresh your memory by looking back at the Introduction to Astrology for Healers and Therapists.

 

I look at the charts for the Sundays in May when the Sun is nearing the mid heaven for that day.  Obviously this is for Haye Mill, so you will have to accept the approximation for your own geographical position but the interpretation should not vary too much from this one.  It is a way of following the general trends throughout the month.  Notice there are 4 Sundays in this month once again.

 

The last month saw a turn of fortunes – thank God. The awesome challenges of the last months reached a watershed and consequences took over as of challenges either met or not met.  Spirituality or growth took hold if the challenges were met even if they were not understood.  It was a matter of a deeper awareness of that soul’s growth.  So on to May.

 

The week beginning the 7th May continues to show the ease from challenge. Venus only has a temporary challenging aspect with the Moon and this week Mars comes in from the cold to be aspected with both Jupiter and Neptune.  Notice the line of ease that the Sun forms with Pluto the Intensifier.  Mercury has resumed a forwards movement through the heavens.

 

The Modal scene is unchanged from last week but Air has gained a sign from Water.

Here is indicated a push forwards. People do not want to be left behind or made to look as if they do not care.  However the Mars challenge with Neptune and the Pluto challenge with Uranus and Mercury could show that there is a degree of denial or shooting oneself in the foot that could impede actual progress.  There is less in the way of spirituality and more of self interest creeping in this week.

 

Counsellors – It looks as if you ought to present sufficient challenge to stop your Clients rationalising discomfort away. You can stay with the apparent gains and use them to defeat any underlying doubt as the balm is applied.  The truth is far more profitable if challenges have been met and it is also a way of softening too much discomfort if they haven’t.

 

Healers – that predominance in Fire is growing again. Watch out for an over  abundance affecting the Heart and Small Intestine meridians.  Kidney and Bladder meridians may take a beating.

  The week of the 14th May shows even less challenge and a strengthening of lines of ease.  However the line of ease between the Sun and Neptune has gone and the challenge that Venus presented to the Moon last week has transferred itself to Jupiter.

It looks as if self deception won out for most people, although the more profound lessons learnt these last few weeks have not been forgotten. Self pity could be creeping in and opportunities missed that could have gone a long way to build self esteem.

 

Counsellors – You may have your work cut out to keep your Clients on the straight and narrow, not letting them indulge in self pity and yet keeping a true perspective on those missed opportunities.

 

Healers – Although there is still such a dearth in Water energy the Earth energies are more at home with the Fire preponderance. It should make for a more comfortable healing environment.

The week beginning the 21st May indicates a less favourable situation developing. Mercury is unaspected and has moved into Taurus.  The Sun has moved into Gemini.  Mars has lost its line of ease with Jupiter, lost its challenge with Neptune but gained a real challenge to Saturn.  Neptune is unaspected and a T-Square has formed on Pluto.

 

Cardinal has lost a sign to Mutable and Earth has lost its gain of last week back to Air.

What a sudden change around. It seems that people will be in a state of shock.  There is little thought going on and only reaction to the fore.  The sudden reversal of fortunes will take some getting used to and considerable drain on resources will lend itself to doubt of spiritual strength that brought individuals through the last major challenge.

 

Counsellors – Negotiation of some kind looks to be a profitable tool to use this week. How  that will work in practice I haven’t a clue.  But there is plenty of scope for manoeuvre if you put your mind to it.

 

Healers – It may be difficult to stay on a single course with individual patients. The temptation is to switch from one emphasis to another.  However try to be consistent even if at first things do not look too promising.

 

  The week beginning 28th May us much more confused.  There are two T-Squares that have appeared and neither were there last week.  Far more aspect lines have suddenly come into effect, especially as a common point for the T-Squares is the rapidly moving Moon.

Although the conflicting aspect influences show a much confused situation there is an air of optimism rather than gloom prevailing. It looks as if individuals can see beyond the obvious to the deeper issues that have been won.  Appearances can be deceptive!

 

Counsellors – I think you might want to throw your hands up in horror this week but do not despair. Clients are appreciative and are prepared to work even if this week it seems to the contrary.

 

Healers – This is a much more balanced situation and some long term illnesses are likely to be treatable. Progress is certainly indicated.

 

Thank God!
