This is a time of contradictions and not very peaceful, but I do believe this will bring out the compassionate heart with so much energy converging in the sign of Leo. Jupiter enters into Leo on July 13th.
As Saturn begins to cast an aspect to Jupiter the economy begins to tank.
Then Venus turns retrograde at 6 degrees Leo it is conjunct the fixed star Regulus (heart of the Lion). This opens people’s hearts and brings forth powerful leaders. On a personal level Venus retrograde is known to bring back old loves and affection.
This month is a huge turning point for this year. You must be feeling the changes in the air. Jupiter will change into the sign of Leo and dance with Venus as it shifts back and forth in its retrograde process. This is extremely meaningful. As the world is transforming a breath of fresh air will inspire the heart of the world consciousness.
I am very excited to be teaching at the International Jyotish Kumbha Mela Conference in June.
If you are a serious about learning Vedic astrology this is the place to be. This conference has many intensive workshops with International speakers. This conference is at Arsha Vidya Gurukulam nested in the beautiful Pocono mountains in Pennsylvania
On the positive front there will be many discoveries that can further technological progress with Uranus trine Jupiter. But the most powerful aspect culminating has to do with Jupiter and Venus coming together. By the last day of June and July 1, they will conjunct at 27 degrees Cancer.
The most significant astrological events for the month of May are the Mars opposition to Saturn, Mercury retrograde in Taurus and Venus setting off a grand cross with Rahu/Ketu, Pluto and Uranus and Venus and Mercury in parivartana (mutual exchange of signs).
The aspects around the recent solar eclipse on March 20th have been very difficult. The 2-week stretch from the solar eclipse (new moon) to the lunar eclipse (full moon) April 4th brings out important information that has been hidden. This information concerns you personally as well as the world globally.
This month there are many of astrological events that will transform our world and our lives forever. That is quite a statement! There are so many aspects occurring that will produce these powerful events.
The realization I made on this trip is that of the power and healing of the emotional body. This is everything in health, disease, healing and spiritual enlightenment. We are here to heal our emotions and this is the key to all of life’s problems. This is why they say only love heals.

The most important aspect this month, and for this year 2015, is Ketu conjunct Uranus. When planets are conjunct the nodes these planets are involved with the solar and lunar eclipses for the year to come.
"Nothing feels worse than the feeling of no control, no choice or freedom. It is like being a child in an abusive home; there is no hope, no way out. But the suggestion that we have free will, the freedom to choose our life and destiny, is invigorating and frees the spirit" -- Joni Patry, from her book, Eastern Astrology for Western Minds
