I have been asked whether I’d take a look at the chart of Saturday’s Champions League final 2013 to see what the astrology shows. One thing’s for sure, it’s going to be a German victory as both finalists are from Germany.
Bayern Munich are the favourites to win and they have already beaten their opposition Borussia Dortmund to the Bundesliga tital. Bayern lost last year’s Champions League final against Chelsea in a penalty shoot-out having dominated much of the match, so they’ll be super keen to make it second time lucky. Let’s take a look at the chart:
The third of seven Uranus-Pluto squares takes place today (exact 20/05/2013 23:02 GMT), a major planetary configuration that began in 2012 and ends in 2015. The symbolism of this powerful clash of the Titans always plays out on the world stage.
Uranus ruling rebellion, sudden turns and disruption is in Aries, the sign of the individual, squaring up to Pluto, God of the Underworld and the planet of power and control in Capricorn, the sign of big business, government and the established status quo.
This time around there are two stories in particular which have caught my eye, especially as the exact degree of today’s face-off is 11 degrees 14 of Aries and Capricorn.
There’s a new kid on the block this week as fleet-footed Mercury joins Venus in quick-thinking, quick-witted Gemini on Wednesday 15th. Both the Sun and action planet Mars remain in earthy Taurus but there’s a definitive sea-change underway.
Sea-change being the operative word as Venus and Mercury square Neptune this week, God of the Sea. Venus is first on Monday 13th followed by Mercury on Saturday 18th. We are betwixt eclipses this week and the Neptune squares offer a chance to ponder what it all means for you. Gemini is the sign of communication but Neptune suggests there are many more ways of communicating than solely through words as this is the planet of dreams and images.
We have another powerful eclipse this week which peaks on Friday 10th May at 00:28am GMT. This is part of the Taurus/Scorpio eclipse cycle that began in November 2012 and continues until October 2014.
This week’s eclipse at 19 Taurus 31 is close to last November’s eclipse at 21 Scorpio 57 reawakening similar themes. Taurus and Scorpio are at opposite sides of the zodiac but both are solar or New Moon eclipses and synonymous with fresh starts and new beginnings.
During an eclipse the energy’s intensified and whether you experience enforced change and a door closes in your life or you’re the one wielding the sword of power, it often feels like living life in the extreme.
Taurus (20 April-20 May)
When Mercury, planet of communication, moves into your sign of Taurus on the 1st of the month, it lines up alongside the Sun (self), Mars (action) and Venus (relating) all in your own sign. This is a stellar line up and a stunning start to your birthday month and the month of May.
When planets are in your own sign, the force is with you as this adds energy and confidence to your personal tool box. You’re the one in charge and the one who can call the shots.
In your solar chart, Taurus rules your physical body and your personal ambitions so this is the time to focus on you and to set some new intentions.
Gemini (21 May-20 June)
The month begins slowly or gently with three of the personal planets in the sign before yours, Taurus, and your ruler Mercury joins them on the 1st. This hidden sector of your chart rules secrets, things going on behind the scenes and retreat.
You may be out of action or caught up with a busy life that allows little time to do more than anything essential. The energy turns inward with planets in this sector of your chart and focuses your attention on unfinished business.
Saturn currently opposes the Taurus planets from the sign of Scorpio ruling your work, routine and health and as Saturn slows things down, it’s likely to be one of these areas which is the reason why life is on go slow.
Take note of what happens on or around the 1st and 5th when first Mars, planet of action, and secondly Mercury, planet of communication, are opposed by Saturn. You may find an obstacle in your path, be up against authority, your own fear or doubt or simply find your options are limited.
Cancer (21 June-22 July)
Once Mercury, planet of communication, moves into Taurus on the 1st, four of the personal planets are in this same sector of your chart ruling your friends, social life, clubs and the wider community.
This is your cue to get out into the big wide world, catch up with old friends, make new friends, seek out like-minded types and feel supported and uplifted by your connections with other people.
The last comment is especially pertinent as Saturn is currently opposing the planets in Taurus and when Saturn’s about this is often an indication that this is where you may encounter problems.
Saturn is the boss, the taskmaster of the heavens and wherever Saturn is in your chart, you may come up against limitation or experience fear or doubt.
Leo (23 July-22 August)
This is an important month for you, Leo, for a number of reasons. Firstly the personal planets are stacked together at the top of your chart as the month begins.
Mercury (communication) joins the Sun, your ruler, Venus (relating) and Mars (action) in Taurus on the 1st and the spotlight’s on your career, your vocation and where you’re heading in life. This is about being in the public eye, being busy and making some key decisions about what next.
The situation is complicated somewhat because Saturn opposes the planets in Taurus down at the base of your chart. This suggests that there may be another person involved, either your other half or a boss or a business partner.
