In episode 253 astrologers Kelly Surtees and Austin Coppock join the show to talk about the astrological forecast for May of 2020.
Most of the action this month happens in the second full week of May, when Saturn stations direct, Mars completes its conjunction with Saturn by moving out of Aquarius and into Pisces, Venus stations retrograde in Gemini, and Jupiter stations retrograde conjunct Pluto in Capricorn.
At the top of the show we spend about an hour catching up and talking about news that has happened since last month, Chris’ recovery from being sick with Covid, astrology conferences running into issues this year, and reflecting on weird conspiracy theories surrounding the virus.
This episode is available in both audio and video versions below.

Auspicious Astrological Date for May
May is again not a great month this year for good elections, and the best chart we could find was:
🪐 May 2, 2020 around 9:30 am, with Cancer rising.
We also presented a few other elections for May on our private subscriber-only podcast on auspicious elections.
We also have a full year-ahead electional astrology report for 2020, which highlights some better charts later in the year.
