Interview with Author/Illustrator Donna McGarry

"Donna captures the spirit of the zodiac signs with wit, delightfully original illustrations, and keen insights. This entire series is a fabulous way to introduce someone of any age to the magic of astrology."

The Curse of Dead Horse Canyon: Cheyenne Spirits

An Epic Award Winning Cross-Cultural Novel by Marcha Fox and Pete Risingsun

Review of Steven Forrest's "The Book Of Neptune"

"If you feel as if you've lost your footing, are sinking in quicksand or adrift on a large body of water with no land in sight, there's a good chance that Neptune is involved.  If that's the case, I can't recommend this book highly enough." --Whobeda
(Brings something new into your life)
(Ending, culmination, or shift to a new phase)
Date: 11 May 2021 Date: 26 May 2021
Position: 21:18 Taurus (Strongest influence for those born ~12 June) Position: 05:26 Sagittarius (Strongest influenced for those born ~27 May)
Natural House: 12th Natural House: 7th
12th House influences include spirituality, enlightenment, seclusion, confinement, subconscious mind, institutions, hidden enemies, and self-defeating behaviors.  Watch for something new in one or more of these areas.  This is an excellent time to meditate or pursue something to feed your soul.  If you've been too materialistic lately, this can help you re-center yourself and rearrange your priorities. You may feel invisible or wish to remain behind the scenes. 7th House influences focus on relationships including your significant other, close friends and relatives, business partners, business professionals, cliental, competitors and open enemies, which is where you're likely to see a culmination or shift to a new phase.  Someone may exit from your life or a relationship shift to a new phase or intensity. Issues involving someone who occupies this zodiacal house may come to a head as well, making it a cosmically favorable time to address such things.

This month's New Moon on 11 May is in Taurus. The lunation is sextile Neptune, suggesting you should take some time out to do some daydreaming, particularly as it applies to what you want most in life and what you may need to do to pursue it. Mercury is trining Saturn, which provides positive energy for data gathering from official sources or perhaps information regarding some restructuring of your goals. This is a nice companion aspect to the first one, assuming you figure out what you want. Mars is lending some help as well, even though he's in fall in Cancer where he's prone to temper tantrums when he encounters obstacles or doesn't get his way. All that aside, taking action in an innovative way is favored or perhaps breaking away from something that has you stuck. For example, if there's something you need to let go of before you can move forward, this could help, even though it's not likely to be easy. Finding the information you need may be frustrating, but if you persevere success can be yours. Get over it and visualize the ultimate results which you're likely to enjoy tremendously. This will require a change of direction and some planning. Nonetheless, these are nicely tied together for a new endeavor.

The only hard aspect is the ongoing square between Saturn and Uranus, which has been a problem for months and will continue to be for quite some time. In other words, you may as well adapt and get used to it as much as you can. The outer planets move slowly and also relate to social change. If you've been paying attention at all you've probably noticed there a lot of that out there, much of which is challenging. Uranus is all about change and Saturn related to stability and tradition, so you can see that the energies of these two is already diametrically opposed, then it's exacerbated by a hard aspect. Furthermore, both are in Fixed signs which don't like change. If what is going on in the world troubles you, you're not alone. But if it's more than background noise and really affecting your stress and anxiety level, do what you can using the energy of this lunation coupled with Neptune to find a way to escape. Count your blessings. Isolate yourself from the upheaval as much as you can. If you're thrust into chaos that's beyond your control, get away from it, either physically, mentally, or spiritually. Feed your soul however you can. Find a new hobby or spiritual pursuit. They key is to distract yourself in a positive direction as much as possible. Helping others worse off than yourself is good for the soul, too. This lunation has a lot of nice, positive energy going for it to help you deal with it.


Jupiter goes into Pisces on 13 May, which is going to prove interesting for the next year. He's the traditional ruler of this sign and fits well with the Piscean view of the Universe which is out there somewhere in the cosmos, and I mean way, way out there, with no boundaries in sight. This could bring about an explosion of idealism, which taken to the extreme is typically unrealistic. The ingress chart for when this has Venus, Mercury, and the Moon in Gemini, which should help bring some hard data to bear during this time. Mays is demanding change and has some help from Uranus, an energy that could prove to be explosive, but Saturn is putting up some resistance, especially since he's about to station retrograde. On the other hand, maybe Saturn will be giving those demands consideration while he's doing the backstroke and/or perhaps trying to undo the damage caused by Mars and Uranus, which definitely looks like some serious social unrest.


We're getting into the season of retrograde planets again and Saturn stations on 23 May. Saturn retrograde is notorious for delays and obstacles. This is a time to ruminate and ponder those things that need to be restructured in your life. You may not know what they are, but could simply manifest as a sense of unrest if not downright lack of progress in some area. This is a time to drop things into a lower gear and pay attention. Yes, the square with Uranus is going to have influence as well. Perhaps you've been resisting change and need to reconsider. Change is not always bad, even if it's uncomfortable. We're all children at some level and may need to see things differently than we have in the past. Like they say, having an open mind doesn't mean your brain is going to fall out, even though it may feel that way.

Changing your belief system is one of the most difficult things to achieve, the older you get. The 3rd house of thoughts and ideas  feeds you data, which you process according to your own personal paradigm. Those things that you accept, ultimately get stashed in your 9th house where your belief systems reside such as your attitude, beliefs and expectations, religious and political views, concept of law and order, and so forth and so on. If you shut down your 3rd house and refuse to listen to new ideas, then the 9th will never change. Venus trines Saturn for this station, which suggests a positive attitude toward the information you encounter. Be objective as much as possible. Venus and Mercury being trined by the Moon in Libra will help with being fair and looking at both sides of whatever it might be. Your gut reaction may be not only "No" but "Hell, no" but try to calm down enough to be objective. Jupiter's square to the Gemini Sun emphasizes this, showing its conflict with hard data. So be objective, but not so objective you're lured into something that's no more than an illusion. The Sun, Venus, and Mercury in Gemini will help with the logical approach and acquiring the needed information to make a sound decision.


This month's full moon is also a lunar eclipse, which gives it a bit more punch than the usual garden-variety lunation. Lunar eclipses tend to affect you at the emotional level. The lunation forms a T-square with Jupiter, which calls more attention to the situation described above with the solar system's gas giant going into Pisces. Sagittarius is the zodiacal 9th house of belief systems referred to earlier. It's a philosophical sign that relates to other cultures, legal matters, and long-distance travel. This suggests tension in regard to these social changes, which is probably intuitively obvious. Mars is moving into opposition with Pluto, which should be interesting. Oppositions call for balance, though the obvious analogy is a tug-o-war. Pluto is transformational change and Mars is going to make a lot of noise resisting it. Mars is irritated by incoming data and doesn't like the implications. Mercury is quincunx Pluto showing a change of direction in information related to power and control. Venus and Mercury are both squaring Neptune, showing resistance to any idealism that doesn't pass the acid test of good sense. As always a full moon indicates an ending, culmination, or shift to a new phase, even more so when it's an eclipse. Where to look for this in your personal life will relate to the house in which the eclipse occurs, which is noted in the table above for your particular sun sign.


Yuck. Here we go again, Mercury retrograde, when all things electronic or related to communications go wacko. This astrological phenomenon has converted more people the the reality of astrology than any other as anything electronic or mechanical refuses to function properly. Thank heaven it doesn't last for long, though its long-term effects can be far reaching. The retrograde chart looks particularly interesting. Mercury is in Gemini, which he rules, meaning he's in dignity. This implies some serious rethinking and revising of information. If you're a writer, this is a great time to edit. As an author myself, I know this is not the time to move forward, especially starting something new. I made that mistake a few years ago and that partially completed manuscript is still sitting there. Since I've since moved onto other projects, it's likely to sit there forever. In other words, things started at this time often come to naught or are significantly delayed. On the positive side, Mercury retrograde is a time to rethink, reconsider, and redo things that are not working or were a mistake to begin with. For example, if you feel as if you've been beating a dead horse in some area of your life, now is a good time to stop and think about whether that's worth it or not.

The Moon is in a tight conjunction to Pluto, within a mere 12 minutes of arc. The Moon rules function and is thus the trigger for things to occur. These two are opposing Mars, suggesting this is going to set off Mars in some manner, most likely a temper tantrum as he's prone to do in Cancer. His trine with Neptune, however, suggests that any argument he may put forth is based on deception. Venus and Mercury are conjunct and both of them are quincunx the Moon/Pluto conjunction. In other words, five planets are involved here, which is a lot of cosmic energy. Venus and Mercury are in Gemini, suggesting this is data related. Their square with Neptune implies it conflicts with previous information, which was either delusional or deceptive. Pluto relates to things that are hidden, including corruption of all kinds. A quincunx suggests a change of direction or adjustment based on whatever has been uncovered. The Sun trining Saturn suggests the forthcoming information should relate to restructuring something.

The personal implications of this is that you'll find something that needs a major overhaul, that "dead horse," if you will. Perhaps you've been basing your actions on faulty information or are simply heading in the wrong direction. Better to find out now than waste even more time going in the wrong direction.

I don't usually make predictions and especially tend to avoid the political scene, but this looks like a fairly safe bet. I don't know about you, but on a broader scale, if you've been paying attention at all to that November election ballot audit in Maricopa County, Arizona, this looks as if the results are going to have some serious implications. I think we all know how it's going to turn out, whether you like it or not. If you have any doubts, I suggest reading Patrick Byrne's book, "The Deep Rig: How Election Fraud Cost Donald J. Trump the White House, By a Man Who did not Vote for Him."  Furthermore, there's significant opposition to this audit. Why would this be the case if there was nothing to hide? Some say the audit itself reduces people's confidence in elections. ROFLOL!!!! Of course it does! With good cause! And it will undermine it even more if they find massive fraud was indeed involved. Assuming that is what they find, this is likely to cause a major shakeup, including audits of other states as well, such as Georgia, Michigan, New Hampshire, and Pennsylvania.  That opposition between Mars and the Pluto/Moon conjunction is very suggestive of the sh*t hitting the fan.

Get out the popcorn, peeps, this should be a very interesting month.
