Astrology Forecast for May of 2017

Astrology Forecast for May of 2017

In episode 106 astrologers Kelly Surtees and Austin Coppock join the show to talk about the astrological forecast for May of 2017.

We open the show by talking about some recent news in the community, including a discussion about the episode of Bill Nye’s new show that covered astrology, and some related issues surrounding the relationship between astrology and science.

Later in the episode I also highlight one auspicious electional chart for the month of May, using the principles of electional astrology.

The artwork for this episode comes from the 2017 Planet Watcher astrology calendar.

  • RE Bill Nye show – like walking into the Lion’s mouth. Why even show up for that? RE Mars Saturn opposition – LOVED this delineation. Always looking for a positive spin on Saturn – have Mars in Cap and Saturn trine planets in Aries natally – I see big rewards for hard work – that is the beauty of Saturn – as well as discipline. The Venus followup, is in Aries no less,. I see it as busyness vs contraction. Insane Gemini activity vs extreme focus. A balancing act between those two areas of life. Bring on the bubbles and the bubbly.

  • Lovely play-by-play of this month’s astro happenings. The three of you have such a great dynamic which is so lovely to listen to.

  • The one thing I wanted to do after listening to this episode (aside from writing a screed about how Pluto was almost totally ignored esp. regarding the Scorpio full moon) is: watching that episode of the Bill Nye show you talk about. Problem is, there are 13 episodes in the Netflix series you referenced in the show., yet it was never mentioned which show you were referring to re: the series. Please let us know, would love to see the clip (if only I knew which one you’re talking about). Meanwhile, I’ll simply have to fast forward through each one until I hit something talking about astrology.

    • It is Episode 11 of the series. 🙂 And they could have had a way better spokesperson, sorry.

      • Yeah, sorry about that, I actually wrote myself a note to mention what episode it was and then forgot. Thanks for noting that it was episode 11 here.
