**This blog post is a part of a series of articles that involves the meaning and implications of the upcoming astrological event occurring between June and August 2010.

Jupiter, Uranus and Saturn-rx are all within the last degrees of Pisces (Jupiter & Uranus) and Virgo (Saturn). Saturn-rx and Uranus have just had their unpleasant opposition on April 26. Jupiter and Saturn will have their own tug of war, as they also oppose each other on May 23.

For much of May, Jupiter and Uranus will do a little Piscean dance as Jupiter tries to catch up with Uranus during their last degrees in the enlightened, imaginative, compassionate sign of Pisces. Jupiter does catch up with Uranus, but not until they have both entered the bold, enterprising, dynamic sign of Aries.

Jupiter and Uranus will nearly walk side by side, especially beginning the second week of May. This could very well be a short, but welcome respite from the celestial strain we've all had to encounter (erm, pretty much since the year began). We've gotten a little breather here and there, and we have another break to look forward to in May, lasting about two or three weeks. Even Jupiter's upcoming opposition with Saturn might bring a little surprise, a dash of hope, a glimmer of silver lining to our individual life challenges -- may they be immediate or persistent -- with Uranus a mere degree away.

As I write this, we are in the midst of the Saturn-Uranus opposition while Mercury is retrograde in Taurus. The tension between Saturn and Uranus makes us want to do something, act, decide, make a way. But Mercury stops us, slows us down. I'm sure it'll prove to be for the best -- acting or deciding based on reason, logic and fact instead of the need to make a move of some kind. Anyway, under this celestial strain and blockages, I couldn't help but look to the stars for relief. Relief is coming. Albeit, there's a short wait and relief itself is brief, I still welcome it and look forward to it.

My only word of caution is -- keep in mind that this Jupiter-Uranus energy is happening in the sign of Pisces. It's one thing to gain insight and grounding through the optimism and overall good feeling their growing conjunction might bring. It's quite another to become attached to this 'good feeling' and give in to avoidance or total escape. Allow Jupiter and Uranus in Pisces to help you find your center again but don't 'check out'. Continue to 'show up' every moment of each day.

Late-born Pisceans and Virgos, late-decan Pisces and Virgo risings and those with natal planets/house angles within 28-29 degrees of mutable or water signs; or between 0-1 degree of cardinal signs may easily recognize the effects of this energy more strongly than others.

Unsure if you have natal planets/house planets around 28 degrees of mutable or water signs? Cast your own birth chart for use as reference -- birth date, time, and place required.

Are you celebrating a birthday during this period? Schedule your session for a Solar Return (birthdays) or 3-Chart Reading (detailed natal & overall outlook for the next 12 months) or request a quote for a more customized reading tailored to your needs. You can also give a loved one the gift of insight.
