In episode 203 astrologers Kelly Surtees, Austin Coppock, and Chris Brennan present the astrological forecast for May of 2019.
May features a New Moon in Taurus, a Full Moon in Scorpio, a Sun-Mercury cazimi in Gemini, and more.
At the top of the show we discuss a few miscellaneous news topics, such as what it is like being in a relationship with another astrologer, whether astrology is inherently discriminatory, and then later in the episode whether knowledge of an ephemeris is a prerequisite for being an astrologer.
