ASTROLOGY FOR THE WEEK OF JUN 14-20 2021.




MON JUN 14.

Today see’s the Moon in Leo still close to Mars, but opposite Saturn and square Uranus, while trine Chiron. This can see some challenges or surprises, and can produce kind of an “edgy” energy that can feel somewhat unstable, but there is courage and bravery available to tackle challenges head on. The Sun/Neptune opposition and the Saturn/Uranus square are exact and perfected at this moment, and this can produce a highly experimental and innovative energy, and with Mercury still retrograde and squaring Neptune, staying on top of fuckery and getting at the truth of things continues to be important. There is also a lot of compassion and understanding available with the Sun/Neptune contact perfecting now. The Moon and Mars in Leo is courageous, and can reinvigorate strength, and provide an egoic resilience amidst oppositional forces or challenges. Although the tensions Mars will run into with Saturn and Uranus can keep people on their toes, or on the edge of their seats in certain ways, so courage and self belief will be an important quality to cultivate, nurture and maintain. Venus, now in the middle degrees of Cancer has been sextile unpredictable, rebellious, and independent Uranus, so last week and over the weekend may have seen people take more independence or liberty in partnerships or in regards to values or finances. This may have seen people go their separate ways momentarily or in the very least, there may have been some unorthodox circumstances or situations that required an experimental mindset, an open mind, or an innovative approach. Venus will trine Neptune beginning tomorrow, which can help smooth things over, dissolve boundaries, or seek comfort and refuge once again, or simply make the little things easy to enjoy, appreciate, and be grateful for. The square Venus has with Chiron may have created some feelings of vulnerabilities or weakness, which the trine to Neptune can help ease in private or seclusion, or with those we feel comfortable being vulnerable with. The Moon goes on to sextile Mercury in the afternoon, while also in trine to asteroid Juno, and this can see some positive or in the very least, supportive news or communications, which may be very welcome, as I don’t really like the “edgy” look of the lunar/Saturn/Uranus mash up. There can be issues of poor timing or miscommunications or misunderstandings. If things are tense, edgy, unpredictable, or slightly unsettling, it always helps to keep morale, courage, and optimism up via supportive connections, communications, and friendships. 


TUES JUN 15.

The first half of today see’s the Moon largely void of course in Leo, so a good time to gather strength and courage. Venus trine’s Neptune and drops it’s sextile to staunchly independent and unpredictable Uranus. It still holds a square to Chiron which can see some lingering vulnerability, but the Neptune trine can bring peace, compassion, faith, and assist in release over that which we have no control. As the day wears on, a lunar opposition to Jupiter builds, and this can be experienced as a test of faith (and motivation levels), and it can be challenging to form a realistic assessment of our emotional and even practical, every day realities or feel confident we have “the lay of the land” so to speak. As we are still in the middle of a Mercury retrograde, in certain cases a wait and see approach is best, and it’s best to try to avoid knee jerk reactions, judgements, or assessments of people, circumstances, or events, as it will take some time as of yet for things to become more clear and things, people, and minds-can change on a whim. The Moon enters detail oriented Virgo at 8:02 PM PST, and there can be a bit of anxiousness that comes with this with the lunar opposition to Jupiter blowing things up and magnifying their proportions, making a realistic assessment of the facts a bit of a challenge. Virgo can be a bit of a worry wart sometimes, especially when there are so many unknowns, so anything that assists in grounding, simplifying, and soothing can be of help under the Virgo lunation. Virgo wants to feel prepared for anything that may come, and when it’s difficult to assess what may come, it can be easy to go into worry mode, but if something were to actually transpire, there’s no need to traumatize ourselves TWICE, and if nothing terrible happens, it’s needless to rob ourselves of the peace that is possible in the here and now. 


WED JUN 16.

Today see’s the Moon in Virgo make an exciting trine to Uranus, a cautious quincunx to Saturn, and an eventual vexing and indecisive square to Mercury.  This can see the possibility for some unexpected developments, news, feelings, or communications, and there may be a subtle inner conflict around whether to take a leap of faith in some direction or other, or whether to hold back, minimize, and restrain, and maintain a cautious and more energetically or emotionally conservative attitude. The heart may win out over the mind in the end here, as the Moon later goes on to form a soothing sextile to Venus in comfort seeking Cancer, which currently holds a trine to boundary dissolving, idealistic Neptune. Of course there are unknowns, and perhaps much confusion yet to navigate, but there is a trend building towards more cooperation, compromise, teamwork, and cohesion that can make things feel more friendly overall. Venus in mid degree of Cancer trine Neptune wants peace and quiet, a safe place of refuge, nurturing and harmony above all else, and doesn’t want to have to prove anything to anyone, so anything riddled in conflict, complex, criticism, or contributing to an overly judgmental environment will tend to simply be averted and avoided. The Virgo lunation wants to fix things and improve things, and may take innovative approaches to bring more harmony, functionality and efficiency to situations or dynamics. Perhaps things (and even expectations) need to be simplified or minimized for the time being to make things go more smoothly. 


THURS JUN 17.

Todays main aspects see the Moon in Virgo square the Sun in communicative Gemini, opposite dreamy, confusing Neptune and trine powerful Pluto in realistic Capricorn. There’s certainly a desire here to make sense of things or cut to the essence of things. We may be doing our damndest to remain realistic and avoid letting all of our fantasies and happily ever after ideals run the show, but we can also be powerfully preoccupied with manifesting a dream or a goal. The ideals are certainly high, but we may also be acutely aware of the need to focus only on what we actually have control over and build from there. Venus trine Neptune is highly idealistic, and with the Moon in Virgo now, we may encounter our own latent perfectionistic tendencies as well. These aspects may also see strong draws to unusual people or pastimes, and it’s possible to get lost in something for hours. Also possible is a powerful preoccupation with some sort of “unsolved mystery”, with a desire to get to the bottom of something, or intuitively “feel out” what in the actual fuck is going on. Curiosity can certainly be aroused, as can mystery and vexation, but otherwise, the Moon/Pluto trine combined with the Neptune influences can be very powerful creatively or spiritually and help to facilitate some breakthroughs or soft power moves. Venus also opposes Pluto as well, so there can be some powerful, and perhaps compelling undercurrents to navigate interpersonally, or perhaps creatively under this aspect. This energy can be constructively funneled into projects that require focus, commitment, devotion, and dedication.


THE WEEKEND.


FRI JUN 18.

The Moon enters partnership oriented Libra in the wee hours at 1:54 AM, where it will sextile Mars in courageous, fun seeking Leo, opposite Chiron in Aries, and trine Saturn in socially minded Aquarius. This can begin the weekend with a focus on others, and there can be an impetus to bring more warmth, good times, fun, and cheer. With Saturn retrograde it’s possible that this could involve catching up with old, reliable friends that have stood the test of time but that may have been out of our loop for a while. The Moon goes on to trine Mercury in Gemini as well, so this can see a lot of back and forth between ourselves and others. In some instances there may be something serious to discuss with the lunar trine to Saturn, but in others it may just be that touching base with others brings a feeling of reassuring stability. Late night see’s the Moon conjoin the Part Of Fortune, which can see some fortunate contacts or mutually beneficial exchanges transpire, which can perhaps help bring a sense of stability where we may have experienced a sense of vulnerability or butthurt.


SAT JUN 19.

Today see’s the Moon in harmony seeking Libra trine Mercury and Saturn, while square Venus in Cancer and Pluto in Capricorn. This can see some intense undercurrents or powerful and compelling pulls socially or interpersonally. The Libra Moon is good at niceties and putting on a cool and detached demeanor, even if under the surface there are more intense dynamics swirling about. Something about today can see some powerful interpersonal shifts or transformations. There’s definitely a desire to change something here, whether financially, socially or interpersonally. Lunar trine’s to the Sun and Mercury in Gemini highlight communications, and it’s possible that some deep talks can transpire or in the very least people can discuss things that maybe they ordinarily wouldn’t. Perhaps taking someone into confidence or an attempt to transform a dynamic for the better or get a more objective view of powerful or instinctual urges or emotions.  In either case, this can be an “interesting” day emotionally, socially and interpersonally. Late evening see’s the Moon trine Jupiter in compassionate Pisces, and this can see an idealistic, compassionate, dreamy, and creative atmosphere that can make for a nice ambiance, and something or someone can certainly stir our ideals or make us feel more hopeful, perhaps even restore our faith where it may have waned. It’s an emotionally and socially generous aspect that can take the edge off of the more intense and compelling undercurrents of the Moon/Venus/Pluto aspects. 


SUN JUN 20. 

Happy Summer Solstice, and Happy Fathers Day to all you dads out there! Today see’s the Moon enter instinctual Scorpio at 4:58 AM PST while trine the Sun in 29 degrees Gemini, trine Jupiter, and squaring Mars and Saturn, while opposite Uranus. Whoa now. This could represent some sort of curve ball, shock, or unexpected but surprising revelations. Jupiter in Pisces stations retrograde at 8:06 AM PST, where it will backtrack through Aquarius for a little refresher course. The Sun also makes it’s annual ingress into Cancer today at 8:32 PM PST. Happy Birthday Crabs! The Moon in intense and sensitive Scorpio can be highly sensitive to nuance and undercurrents with it’s trine to Jupiter, and the lunar square to Mars can potentiate some irritability or impulsiveness, while it’s square to Saturn can require emotional resilience, discipline and patience. The Moon/Uranus opposition adds yet another layer of complexity to the mix by suggesting the possibility for some curve balls, or erratic behavior, in the very least emotions and energy levels can fluctuate rapidly and be quite all over the map. There could be some possible challenges to navigate, maybe a need to think on our feet or innovate solutions, or seek an outlet for a whole lot of feelings. Moon in Scorpio square Mars in Leo is a classic signature of “Drama City”, although this is just one potential of this aspect, but it’s still wise to take care in social and interpersonal interactions and do what you can to duck out of controversy or avoid bombastic scenes or people with an axe to grind. There could simply be some impatience with something or someone, but conversely there could be a desire to take action in some regard, while maybe feeling a need to hold back, or feeling blocked somehow. Scorpio has deep reserves of willpower and the lunar/Saturn aspect offers resilience.  There could be some interesting things going on for sure, and aside from any less desirable potentials in these aspects, it can be a quirky, freaky kind of atmosphere that can see people flying their freak flags in some type of way.

ASTROLOGY FOR THE WEEK OF JUNE 7-13 2021




MON JUN 7.

The Moon in practical, easy going Taurus makes a square to Saturn this morning while conjunct Uranus and trine Pluto, suggesting the possibility there's been some unexpected challenges that require getting to the bottom of. A lunar sextile to Neptune later on may provide some relief. This can see the day dealing with practical responsibilities and physical realities. The basics. The lunar conjunction to Uranus in the morning hours can see an anxious or nervous excitement to get going, and the trine to Pluto makes it focused in it’s execution. With Mercury Rx squaring Neptune now, a square that perfected on Sunday, there may be some mysteries to get to the bottom of and puzzles to resolve, particularly in the area ruled by Gemini in your whole house natal chart. The Moon in tactile Taurus’ link to Neptune later on suggests some tangible progress can be made towards solutions and a more thorough understanding or grasp of a situation can occur. Late evening hours can be dreamy, imaginative, reflective, with a quietly intense undercurrent that can be focused on a goal.


TUES JUN 8.

Today begins with the Moon in late Taurus squaring Jupiter in imaginative Pisces, sextile Mars in security oriented Cancer while still trine Pluto. This is a Mystery Machine vibe, with a drive to get to the bottom of something or understand something at it’s basest elements, perhaps to get more control and/or understanding around a situation that has been muddled, confused, uncertain. This could simply be a desire to get something done, there's a quiet determination to these configurations. This could have something to do with the area Mercury is transiting through your natal chart right now. The Moon enters busy and inquisitive Gemini at 11:47 AM PST. This can see more Mystery Machine vibes and there can be some confusion to navigate. The imagination can be all over the place, highly stimulated, and there can be a bit of a spacey, indulgent vibe that can make it hard to concentrate at points. Evening time brings a bit more stability with a lunar trine to Saturn, but there’s also a need to be ready to adapt with Saturn square Uranus. Certain changes can be instigated to take things in a healing direction. 


WED JUN 9.

Today see’s the New Moon Solar Eclipse in talkative and multitasking Gemini conjunct the Sun, Mercury, North Node, trine Saturn, and sextile Chiron. This peaks at 3:53 AM PST, very early in the morning. This New Moon is an opportunity to plant New Seeds and set new intentions that are very healing in nature. It occurs in the area of your whole house natal chart that is ruled by Gemini. This Mercury Rx is an opportunity to go over something we may have missed or neglected before, and to correct course and bring healing and a revitalization to the area of your chart hosting the Mercury Rx. This New Moon can help put things on a new trajectory in this life area. If you feel a little overwhelmed at this new moon, chances are you aren't alone. There is a lot of focus on communications, news, and information gathering, and the Moon goes on to square Neptune later suggesting there is some confusion, mystery and uncertainty, so it’s important to make sure you’re being properly understood. It could simply be hard to concentrate as this is a daydreamy aspect. This makes for an emotionally sensitive environment as well, and we can be sensitive to whatever is said or isn't said. The Sun and Moon both trine Saturn are determined to make sense of things and keep everything together. There may be a need to wait for more facts to emerge with all the squares to Neptune, emotions seem to have the upper hand for now, and in the very least, there's a need to just go with the flow. Tomorrow can see the potential for some good news, and perhaps even some pleasant surprises. 


THURS JUN 10.

The early morning hours see the Moon in Gemini still conjunct Mercury and the Sun and squaring Neptune. There may be a bit of anxiousness, maybe even the potential for worries over unknowns, lack of information, and a need to just rely on intuition . Venus forms it’s sextile to Uranus today and this can see some surprises, shocks, innovations, or wild cards under the duration of this aspect. Afternoon see’s the Moon form a generous trine to Jupiter while still conjunct Mercury, and it’s possible we could receive news or a message of some kind that boosts optimism, good will, or morale. In the very least, people can be kind, compassionate or generous somehow. Even if there are unknowns or subtle draining influences to navigate, it’s nice to feel like the universe has your back. 


FRI JUN 11.

The Moon enters cozy Cancer at 12:23 AM, while Mars enters theatrical, fun seeking Leo at 6:34 AM. This places the Red Planet’s focus on getting more joy, playfulness, and fun out of life for the next while. The Moon in Cancer conjoins Venus and trines Jupiter, which is definitely emphasizing pleasantries and a Ganesha like blissfulness. The lunar square to Chiron can be a challenge to certain vulnerabilities, and it's possible we may be feeling somewhat weak in a certain area, but maybe a pleasant shake up or something outside of our norm is just what is needed to generate motivation to gain more strength, insight, or command over a situation. This seems to be the case, with the Moon going on to sextile exciting and illuminating Uranus. This can see the later hours hold some surprises, perhaps even pleasant ones. Maybe radical new approaches or revisions are being considered.  


SAT JUN 12.

Today see’s the Moon in comfort seeking Cancer conjunct Venus, trine Neptune, and opposite Pluto. It’s possible something has us in kind of a fantasy land, perhaps even a bit preoccupied with something. This can be a sensitive atmosphere, though not necessarily in a bad way. Perhaps just very attuned to things going on under the surface. There could be a slight feeling of being under pressure, but a strong desire to make things more comfortable and ideal, and transform them, make improvements. Evening time see’s the Moon in late Cancer build a trine to Mars freshly in Leo, suggesting a build up of emotional impetus, maybe even just energy or courage. Gathering strength, and strengthening weak areas. The lunar trine to Neptune and opposite Pluto suggests the possibility for challenges we may be quietly but gracefully grappling with. Tomorrow can see a more confrontational or energetic atmosphere. 


SUN JUN 13.

The Moon enters courageous Leo at 11:22 AM PST, this can see a building up of strength, perhaps in the face of oppositional forces, with the Moon conjunct Mars and opposite Pluto. This opposition wanes as the day progresses but is replaced by an opposition to Saturn fairly quickly. The lunar trine to Chiron suggests courage in the face of challenges.  The Sun and Mercury both squaring Neptune can have a bit of a draining, spaced out, or dreamy influence, but the lunar conjunction to Mars is determined to not let life forces be drained. Late night see’s the Moon square Uranus, suggesting some unexpected challenges or hiccups to navigate, or something completely new to adapt to.  Maybe it’s just anxiousness. Nonetheless, it looks like there are silver linings, and there's a possibility for good news even if there are things that are less than ideal or totally unexpected that alter our routine or catch us off guard.

ASTROLOGY FOR THE WEEK OF MAY 31-JUNE 6 2021




MON MAY 31.

Today see’s the Moon in Aquarius trine Mercury, now retrograde, in Gemini, and going on to trine Venus in Gemini as well. The morning hours see lunar conjunction to Saturn, whereas the afternoon see’s a conjunction build to Jupiter. Optimism can be growing around getting something more established, and there can be friendly communications in focus today.  With the conjunction to Saturn early on there can be a somewhat serious tone, but Venus assuages and soothes.  Optimism builds in the latter part of today as the lunar conjunction to Jupiter builds as the Moon enters the later degrees of Aquarius. Today can be busy and talkative, and it may be that there is catching up to do with Mercury backtracking now. Perhaps there is an opportunity to clear up misunderstandings or take a new approach to communications somehow, or in the very least, open up dialogue where it has been lacking. This can be a good time to smooth things over if there have been miscommunications, lingering misunderstandings, or hostilities, as Venus and Mercury can ensure an easy passage and good rapport. Tomorrow will see a boost in optimism and there can be a focus on pleasant experiences. 


TUES JUN 1.

Today see’s the Moon in compassionate Pisces trine Venus and conjunct lucky and optimistic Jupiter. It can be easy to feel the love, and there can be a lot of compassion and hopeful idealism in the air. The Moon goes on to square the Sun in Gemini, indicating the potential for confusion or uncertainty, perhaps there are still some muddles to figure out, and the potential for misunderstandings still stands of course with Mercury retrograde, but this is an opportunity to work out the kinks in things. Overall, today can see a desire to make things as pleasant as possible and there’s an expansiveness and adventurousness that can widen our scope interpersonally or socially, as the barriers between ourselves and others are less apparent. There is also great sensitivity to the plight of others as well, although boundaries can be less intact, so take care not to be taken in by a lost cause. We are fortunate that Mars is trine Neptune now, as it’s opposition to Pluto is tempered with a reflective quality that tames the instinctual or reactionary responses. This set of influences can provide insight into our own or others responses to things, or into otherwise intense power dynamics that don’t typically leave much room for rehabilitation or reflection. This doubles the chances that this Mercury retrograde can be used as an opportunity to make some profound changes and transformations that can be healing in the long run. Later on, the Moon form a sextile to Uranus, which indicates some shocks or surprises or some illuminating experiences. This can see new ideas and approaches to old problems or provide emotional refreshment, putting things on a new tack. Venus enters Cancer tomorrow which will see her join hands with Mars, which will make for a more emotionally sensitive atmosphere.


WED JUN 2.

Venus enters comfort seeking Cancer this morning at 6:19 AM PST. This occurs while the Moon is square the Sun, conjunct Neptune and sextile Uranus. This places Venus in a sweet trine to Jupiter which makes emotions more accessible, for better or worse, but perhaps it’s time to embrace a widening of our emotional bandwidth. The Moon goes on to square Mercury and trine Mars, so this can be a good time to take a new approach to the past or liberate ourselves from repetitive cycles, as the Sun trine Saturn in visionary Aquarius indicates laying new foundations in regards to communications. The Moon trine to Mars strengthens throughout the day, providing energy, assertiveness and motivation. In Pisces, this is a spiritual motivation, perhaps creative as well, but regardless, we can be more inclined to rise to any challenges, or confront feelings. This can be a strong time creatively, the imagination can be lit, the emotive landscape rich, and inspiration can fuel motivation. Late night see’s the Moon sextile powerful Pluto and this can see some deep experiences and increase our drive and determination around something. With the Sun sextile Chiron there is an emphasis on healing through communications. It’s possible we are motivated by something unfolding interpersonally or socially. 


THURS JUN 3.

The Moon enters pioneering Aries at around 11 AM PST this morning, and we can be motivated to take more initiative emotionally, interpersonally, or socially as the Moon squares Venus while coming out of trine to Mars. Prior to the Moon’s entrance into Aries we see it hold a number of contacts indicating transformation, catharsis and metamorphosis, and there can be much going on foundationally that can facilitate healing. Once the Moon enters Aries, it’s primary contacts are a square to Venus in Cancer and a conjunction to Chiron, strongly indicating relationships with others are a major motivating factor right now. There can be an increased desire to bring more comfort and security to a situation. Feelings or passions can be strong, but perhaps not easy to express, and there can be a drive to lay down new foundations that deepen and expand our experience. 


THE WEEKEND.


FRI JUN 4.

Today see’s the Moon in Aries sextile the Sun and Saturn, while conjunct Chiron. New foundations we are laying down now emotionally or otherwise can boost confidence and morale. There can be a serious tone however, or a need to get serious about plans. The Sun conjoins Mercury once again, emphasizing communications, transportation, siblings, neighbors, short distance travels, errands, news, and things going on in the local environment. Perhaps certain adjustments have made a transition on to a more solid foundation smoother. Perhaps there's something happening that poses a challenge, but also increases stability. With the Moon in positive relation to Juno today there can be an emphasis on positive and supportive relationships that help expand our world or increase optimism somehow. Getting on to the same page as others has been and perhaps continues to be a process, but it looks set to become more stabilized and perhaps necessary. Venus trine Jupiter and Mars trine Neptune enrich our emotional life and our experience of the feelings can be more vivid now. Mars opposite Pluto challenges us to transform our approach to power and power dynamics, and this aspect intensifies and perfects this weekend, creating a sort of crisis atmosphere in some cases and there may be some destructive elements at play. Positively this aspect has been helping us become aware of buried or secret desires that seek absolution, expression, acknowledgement, and an outlet. Today can emphasize healing through communications and interpersonal contacts, and Venus seeks to expand our emotional bandwidth and rise above petty tribalism or insular behavior in order to increase comfort, safety and security. There can be an element of anticipation and preparation. Perhaps a feeling of foreboding or intensity that requires management or planning. 


SAT JUN 5.

This morning begins with the Moon in Aries, forming a sextile to Mercury and squares to Mars and Pluto as they perfect their opposition. Eeek.... This can see some powerful mental preoccupations, intense news, or a crisis atmosphere in some cases. There's also some transformative, perhaps deep conversations or realizations. There is a powerful confrontational atmosphere here, and a desire to perhaps clear the air or unearth buried things that have been on the mind or going on in the environment. There can be news that maybe is jarring. The Moon squaring both Mars and Pluto can make for a somewhat highly charged atmosphere so take care to tread gently in communications as it can be easy to come off more intensely than we realize or than is intended. Perhaps certain things simply need to be said.  Regardless, the atmosphere can be one of some low key (or high key) intensity, maybe even some power struggles under the surface, or abuses of power going on. Something may simply need to be transmuted and there can be challenges to navigate. If anyone tries to provoke you in order to get a reaction out of you, funnel the energy into something constructive that keeps your inspiration and good vibes flowing, and exercise empathy for people that are having a bad time. These aren't easy aspects. The Moon enters earthy and physical Taurus late in the evening, (10:46 PM PST), which see’s a lunar sextile to Jupiter in idealistic Pisces. There’s a strong desire here to transform situations or dynamics to match a more ideal vision. Maybe even to escape something. There may be some challenges along the way or a lot of work or discipline to put in, but the changes instigated now can lead to more pleasurable experiences. 


SUN JUN 6.

This morning see’s the Moon in easy going Taurus conjunct Uranus, sextile Venus in Cancer and Jupiter in Pisces. Idealism can be high, and pleasure, beauty and enjoyment can be high on the agenda. There can be surprising experiences or there can be something liberating about this mathscape, perhaps a simple desire to let our hair down and seek release through unusual pastimes or escapes to less jarring and more peaceful environments. Compassion and empathy can be high. There can also be some surprises interpersonally or in regards to partnerships that boost our mood or increase optimism somehow. Our world can be expanding in a positive way, even if driven by challenge. The Sun squares Neptune as well, so we can also be prone to fantasy, or confusion, and there can be a pursuit of perfection that perhaps eludes manifestation. Fuckery may also be afoot and it can be very obvious where corruption is at play.  Regardless, our world can be pleasantly expanded through contacts with others, and it can be that others serve as a port of inspiration, fresh emotional stimulus and new ideas and a feeling of solidarity and comfort. Later in the afternoon the Moon squares Saturn, indicating some reality checks or more challenges, or a need for resilience and good planning. There may be a need to innovate around certain blockages or unexpected delays, fuckery or hiccups, or a need to get work done and stay on top of responsibilities after a more dreamy and fantastical escape from them. Next week begins on a note of transformation and intensity.

ASTROLOGY FOR THE WEEK OF MAY 24-30 2021.





MON MAY 24.

The week begins with the Moon in intense and transformative Scorpio. A lot of things are transforming right now in a major way. Saturn has just stationed retrograde and this may require a sort of pause moment as we catch up to the shifts happening in the emotional undercurrent. The Moon opposes Uranus and squares Saturn, after holding a trine to Jupiter freshly dipped into Pisces, which reflected the deep changes going on and all the possibilities and fantasies this shift has opened up. There’s still a need to maintain the stability we already have while we prepare the ground to accommodate the new. The Moon goes on to trine Mars in Cancer, and this can see a desire to push forward to make way for the fresh energy. There can be a low key intensity and excitement around this, as something is clearly changing and transforming in a powerful way. We may need to get our bearings a bit, but with a Full Moon Eclipse in Sagittarius right around the corner midweek, this can see a build up to some make or break moments that begin entirely new chapters. With the Moon also forming a trine to Neptune as well as Mars, there can be a lot of idealism felt around what’s driving us here, and there’s a desire to break free from old patterns that have restricted our emotional experience or held us back in some way. New terrain is being entered into, new options are on the table, or new approaches are being taken, and the shift can be felt in the emotional undercurrents and can be making quite an impact. Even if things seem quiet or muted on the surface under the Scorpio lunation, these are quite intense shifts, and the emotional environment can be rich with the flood of fresh water. There can be something rather surprising, unexpected, or unusual about all of this, but it’s also inspiring. The lunar square to Saturn suggests a sort of “getting your shit together” vibe in preparation for a new era commencing that will shake up an established norm and break down old, established patterns, ruts, barriers, blockages or inhibitions. The Moon/Saturn link refines and chisels, while the Moon/Neptune link dissolves walls and barriers to entering new terrain more fully. 


TUES MAY 25.

Today begins with the Moon in deep and powerful Scorpio making potent and harmonizing links to Mars, Neptune and Pluto, while going on to square Jupiter in Pisces. This is a rather fantastical arrangement, and the possibilities that are intuited can feel beautiful and activate the imagination and emotive, instinctual capacities quite a lot. There can also be a lot of compassion, dreaminess and fantasy present. Something is powerfully transforming here in a way that can feel like divine intervention, as there’s something “fated” or “inevitable” about whatever is unfolding. There can be an increased sensitivity to nuance, serendipity, synchronicity, and the spiritual dimensions. There’s a lot to take in right now, and these configurations are driven towards a sort of catharsis, release, and metamorphosis that will open up new dimensions of experience. With Mercury about to station retrograde this weekend, we’ll be given an opportunity to reevaluate our approach to communications, and it’s possible we can revisit something that last years Venus Rx in Gemini around this time had prevented us from exploring more deeply. Something about these configurations say’s “It’s time.” The Moon enters adventurous and optimistic Sagittarius at 7:39 PM PST, to oppose the Sun in communicative Gemini. This highlights how our emotional experience is expanding via our communications with others, either new levels of communications, or new ways of interacting. Something about this is very healing and has the potential to be integrated into our world for the longterm. There can be a lot of optimism about what is transforming right now, and the transformations are deep, impactful, and long lasting.


WED MAY 26.

This morning see’s the Full Moon Eclipse in Sagittarius at 4:14 AM, and this can see a lot of optimism and fantasy around how our emotional world is expanding. The Full Moon opposes the Sun, squares Jupiter, and trines healing Chiron. This places emphasis on the fact that in some way, our emotional world, -and the beliefs we have around it- are growing in a way that is inherently healing for us. The lunar trine to Hygeia, the asteroid of healing, in Leo, doubles this healing potential and emphasizes the impact this healing and expansion is having on the solar plexus, our seat of personal power, self esteem, self worth, joy, confidence, and creative expression. It can almost be difficult to believe what the universe is handing to us right now, as whatever it is can feel like the precise medicine we’ve needed. The Tarot card associated with Sagittarius is Temperance, the alchemist of the Tarot. A card of healing, peace, balance, and patience. Representative of a deep understanding of the elements and minerals of the universe, and of bringing together these elements into a cohesive and functional whole. Much about what is transpiring right now revolves around this sort of harmonious blending and melding, dipping our toes into new waters,- without losing our footing on the land. The Sun in Gemini forms a trine to Saturn suggesting that communications or contacts are being established on to a more firm foundation, and these contacts aren’t frivolous, pointless, or without meaning. What can be exchanged here has a lot of substance to it, but is also mutually beneficial, uplifting, and inspiring, signified by Mercury’s trine to generous, consciousness expanding Jupiter. This also emphasizes how our emotional and spiritual capacities and experiences are being positively expanded now as well. The Moon goes on to sextile Saturn, indicating that what’s transpiring here has very real potential and something can be made more stable and real. We can feel inspired to put more effort, work, time, dedication, or energy into something, -as the benefits of doing so can seem …obvious. Late night see’s the Moon squaring Neptune while opposing Mercury and Venus, and this can see some confusion or uncertainty to navigate in regards to getting on the same page as others or navigating towards cohesion, blending lives, schedules, time tables, or forming a plan.


THURS MAY 27.

Today see’s the Moon in explorative, open minded Sagittarius, square Neptune and opposite Mercury and Venus. This can see some confusion or fuckery to navigate socially, interpersonally or even commercially. Given that we are in the shadow phase preceding Mercury’s retrograde station, I can only imagine that today might be one of “those” days. Those text book “Is Mercury about to go retrograde or something?” days. This is a bit of a loopy vibe, and there may be something new to adapt to, or we may feel uncertainty around how to approach something or someone, or around how to make everything or everyone work together. This could be as simple as schedule clashes, but there could also be some miscommunications, misunderstandings, doubts, lack of clarity, or potential deception or evasiveness.  A generous lunar sextile to Jupiter later on in the afternoon begins to form as the Moon heads into down to earth, “keep it real” Capricorn at 7:23 PM PST, so there’s a strong desire here to bring perspective, higher understanding, and emotional generosity to a situation in order to make things work. Even if there’s confusion, uncertainty or unknowns to wade through, the Moon in Capricorn is grounded, stable, and focused on the bottom line essentials of a situation, and the trine to Jupiter allows for a lot of emotional and spiritual generosity and understanding. 


THE WEEKEND.


FRI MAY 28.

Today see’s the Moon in Capricorn trine Uranus and square Chiron, where it will go on to oppose Mars in Cancer. This can see a lot of changes unfolding and in some cases, some of these changes can be taking us a bit out of our comfort zone, or perhaps challenging us to strengthen our weaknesses or confront our vulnerabilities in some way, but something about it can also be exciting, revitalizing, and offering a kind of renewal. Venus also forms a trine to Jupiter today, so interpersonally, this can be an optimistic and expansive time. There can be a sense that we are entering new interpersonal or emotional territory that can be deepening and broadening our experience and opening up our world. There’s also a lot about this that can be highly unusual. We can be attracted to what and who is unusual or mysterious, or there can be a pull to explore something or someone more deeply. This might be something that was previously overlooked, or that again, due to last years Venus Rx in Gemini, we were unable to explore or consider at the time, but perhaps now, there is another opportunity to explore things. Granted, there can be something about whatever is going on here that can make us feel a bit vulnerable in some way, but it’s also exciting. As the saying goes, “life begins outside our comfort zone.” 


SAT MAY 29.

Mercury stations retrograde today at 3:34 PM PST. Today see’s the Moon in earthy Capricorn opposite Mars in comfort and security oriented Cancer, sextile dreamy and spiritual Neptune, and trine transformative, powerful Pluto. There’s something inevitable about what’s occurring right now, and there can be a drive to dissolve barriers to progress, and this might mean letting down certain walls or barriers that have been up in order to more fully immerse ourselves into a process of much needed transformation. There may be a lot of energy here, maybe even a need to seek release or let off steam somehow. There can even be some deep or cathartic experiences spite of the fact that this is a more pragmatic, physical, and earthy lunation. In some ways, this can see our physical or practical or even emotional/home life/foundational situation transforming somehow. There could be some disparate elements to navigate but overall this looks set to shake things up for the better, and what can emerge from this process can set things on a stable trajectory for some positive and healing developments that can let in all kinds of new life.  This Mercury retrograde will give us an opportunity to change our approach to something in regards to communications, contacts, exchanges, learning, siblings, neighbors, short distance travels, and with people in our local environment.  What’s unfolding now can be refreshing, and breathe new life into an already established, stable foundation, and this can involve partnerships and relationships with others that have perhaps been on a sort of back burner. 


SUN MAY 30.

The Moon enters unorthodox and liberating Aquarius in the witching hours, 12:04 AM PST,  to trine the Sun in talkative Gemini, square Uranus in Taurus, and conjunct Saturn. This can see a lot of nervous excitement around communications, and there can be exciting things unfolding in regards to talks with others, social networking, or things going on in our local environment. Something can be getting more firmly established here that might have taken some time, effort, patience and discipline to facilitate. The Moon is also sextile relationship asteroid Juno, this can open up new doors in relationship to others, and things can be expanding here in a positive way, opening up new vistas and adding new dimension and nuance to the emotional and interpersonal landscape. The Moon in Aquarius seeks liberation, freedom and fresh social and mental stimulation, to further nourish the port of stability already established. A lunar sextile to Chiron amidst all this suggests that things are being positively shaken up in ways that can be profoundly healing and boost morale. Mars in Cancer trine Neptune is deeply driven to follow it’s dreams and deeper callings, it’s on a sort of soul mission here. This aspect can drive people to connect with their soul family, and there’s a pronounced drive here towards emotional and spiritual nourishment. These configurations are less concerned with what others think or how “normal” it appears by others standards, and more concerned with what authentically feels right for us, what feels healing, what brings life to us and inspires us, what and who nurtures and heals the soul, psyche, emotions, and the inner world.

ASTROLOGY FOR THE WEEK OF MAY 17-23 2021




MON MAY 17.

This morning see’s the Moon enter fun seeking, theatrical Leo, wherein will trine Chiron in Aries , oppose Saturn in Aquarius and square Uranus in Taurus, and later sextile Venus in Gemini. There can be a certain restlessness here to shake things up out of a rut, perhaps one that has come to feel somewhat lonely. There can be a desire here to seek entertainment and stimulation, perhaps through social interactions, but with the lunar opposition to Saturn there could be some challenges or issues of timing.  Nonetheless there could be some unexpected opportunities that are encouraging. Even if you have to wait to take full advantage of them, it’s nice to know they are there. The energy of the day can be somewhat erratic, maybe there is unexpected (but pleasant?) news or communications. The taskmaster Saturn can tend to put duty before pleasure or otherwise make it difficult to totally let our hair down. But there can be some unusual breaks in routine or maybe a need or desire to innovate in order to break monotony. 


TUES MAY 18.

Today see’s a continuation of yesterdays Leo lunation, and the Moon sextile’s Mercury in Gemini, still holding an opposition to Saturn. The morning hours still hold a lunar square to Uranus, suggesting the unexpected or at least, “out of the norm”, still plays a role. Shifts in routine or shaking up routines, can make dull tasks more entertaining. A lunar link to Juno suggests supportive relationships, and the lunar link to Mercury all day places the emphasis on communications. It might be easier to enjoy this later on in the evening when the lunar/Saturn link relents, and gives way to a more indulgent atmosphere. 


WED MAY 19.

Today begins with the Moon in the later degrees of Leo squaring up to the Sun, and building an opposition to Jupiter in Pisces. The Moon enters Virgo at 1:59 PM PST, and a lunar semi square to Mars can see an action oriented atmosphere but also a desire to indulge a bit. Finding a way to squeeze in some enjoyment and indulgence without neglecting routines can be a factor here. Later there can be some surprises or out of the ordinary escapes that perhaps hit just this sweet spot with the Moon trine Uranus. The Sun will make it’s annual ingress into Gemini tomorrow, which can sweeten life a bit and make the every day a bit more enjoyable and stimulating by emphasizing Venus and Mercury. 


THURS MAY 20.

Happy birthday Gemini! The Sun enters this talkative and curious sign at 12:37 PM PST. This day could be filled with some unusual surprises or occurrences, and it’s possible that things are busy and uptempo with a lunar sextile to Mars, square Venus, and trine to Uranus. Perhaps there’s a desire to get a lot done so that a more sociable weekend can be enjoyed? The Moon goes on to oppose Neptune, while squaring both Venus and Mercury, and it’s possible for interpersonal communications or interactions to be confusing, or maybe just laden with fantasy. Maybe there’s a lot of daydreaming happening here. We could be drawn to unusual people or situations and there can be a desire for more novelty and stimulation. It’s definitely possible today holds some surprises. 


THE WEEKEND. 


FRI MAY 21.

Today see’s the Moon in detail oriented Virgo trine the Sun in tactile, practical Taurus, opposite Neptune, and trine Pluto, and square Mercury. There can be a need or desire to get to the bottom of something or get something sorted. Perhaps there’s an organizational effort, or maybe it’s investigative, but whatever it is, the lunar/Pluto link has a sort of tunnel vision focus. The loopy lunar link to Neptune can see some daydreamy confusion, or some sort of fantasy, but this can just as easily be funneled into something creative or beautiful. It's productive, and creative. The Moon/Pluto link will have an earthy thoroughness about it and a strong desire to take a closer look at things maybe previously overlooked or a desire to make a lot of headway with work or organizational projects. Not to mention purging/elimination of clutter or making improvements. The Moon enters harmonizing Libra at 6:35 PM PST, placing the emphasis on relationships to others. Tomorrow will see a focus on relationships, partnerships, and social exchanges.


SAT MAY 22.

Today see’s the Moon in sociable Libra trine Venus and Mercury in Gemini, Saturn in Aquarius, square Mars, and opposite Chiron. There can be a bit of sensitivity to navigate, (Moon/Chiron)-but overall there’s a focus on harmonizing disparate elements. The Moon square Mars can indicate a deep emotional desire to seek comfort via interacting with others, and the focus is very much on the interpersonal. Moon/Mercury/Venus/Saturn brings patience, harmony, beauty, and tolerance. The Sun in Gemini now opposite Jupiter in compassionate Pisces can now see optimism and idealism levels through the roof. This can see a lot of generosity, and an increased interest in spiritual topic. It can also see excessive or escapist behavior, so it’s important to remain grounded. 


SUN MAY 23.

Today see’s the retrograde station of Saturn at 13 degrees Aquarius. This can see a pause for consolidation, and in preparation for the shifts that are occuring, socially, emotionally, and otherwise. Venus in Gemini also forms an anticipated square to delusional Neptune today. It’s worth noting that we are in the shadow period of a Mercury retrograde as well, it’s due to station retrograde next Saturday.  Take everything with a grain of salt, mind your spending, and take care to remember where you put your keys. There can be intense dynamics under the surface this morning, with the Moon in Libra squaring Mars and Pluto, perhaps even a few subtle power struggles. If this isn't the case, there may simply be a lot of passion, intensity and excitement under the surface, and a desire to make forward momentum in regards to partnerships, relationships, collaborations, or agreements unfolding now. The Moon in friendly Libra trine generous Jupiter and talkative Mercury suggests communication and harmonization is key. There can be some implicit understandings. This could actually see the potential for some deep talks, or in the very least, some unspoken agreements, or vulcan mind melds. 



Monday, May 10, 2021

ASTROLOGY FOR THE WEEK OF MAY 10-16 2021




MON MAY 10.

Today see’s the Moon in Taurus conjunct Uranus, square Saturn, and sextile Mars in Cancer. There can be a pronounced impulse towards change, a feeling that “somethings got to give”,  or in the very least shaken up a bit, but simultaneously there can be some temporary blockages, or a need to reign in and focus certain impulses. With Venus having now left Taurus, where the focus was on values, pleasure, money, possessions, enjoyment, and all things earthy, the ultimate lesson being that which you own, owns you, it’s entrance into Gemini can see a sort of restlessness, curiosity, and desire for novelty and intellectual stimulation. What has felt stagnant now wants to shake loose and we can be faced with choices. Gemini is ruled by the Lovers in the Tarot, a card of compelling choice. With the Moon/Mars sextile today, there can be energy available to get a lot done. The lunar conjunction to Uranus is restless for change, but the square to Saturn reminds us of our responsibilities and duties and that which must be maintained. Mercury, now trine Saturn, sets a stabilizing trend that Venus will follow toward the weeks end. Sure, there may be a narrow bandwidth that we must operate within to maintain the stability of our respective situations for the time being, but there is still much that can be explored, and certainly much that can be talked about, conversations that need to be had, topics that can be broached. The link to Saturn suggests that there can still be a lot of reserve, but it can also slow things down enough for them to be savored and also gone about in the correct way. Slow, sustained change, and gathering information, opening up dialogue. The Moon square Saturn could see some challenges, blocks, or inhibitions to get around. Jupiter will enter Pisces this week to give us a taste of the next Jupiter cycle. Uranus in the long journey of Taurus has continued to illustrate that “common sense” is becoming increasingly rarified and “unconventional”,  and all you have to do to appear “rebellious” and “go against the grain” is to maintain simple, down to earth, common sense thinking. This is where awakening and illumination (Uranus) dwells. It is pure and simple common sense and simplicity that sets you apart from the crowd these days, as the dominating forces and “official takes” of the vast majority relies increasingly upon an exhausting series of mental gymnastics to vindicate and justify. Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius can be very literally personified by Dr. Weird from the cartoon Aquateen Hunger Force.


TUES MAY 11.

Today see’s the New Moon in Taurus, conjunct the Sun, sextile Neptune, and trine Pluto. This can see a dissolving of barriers and blockages, and a sort of surrender to an inevitable transformation. This can also highlight the natural, and even magical appeal of down to earth, matter of fact, common sense thinking, as the threads of common sense have been consistent and reliable and haven’t broken. This can be the case for certain interactions as well. This New Moon is quite simply, “based”, with a little magic, serendipity and awe thrown in. The seed planted here at this New Moon can open up new possibilities and create opportunities for growth, expansion, serendipity, and more variety and stimulation. The Moon in Taurus along with Mars in Cancer make simplicity, security, -(and common sense) important as well. What or who has been complicating things? Time to release whatever outworn patterns are mucking up the jams. This can see expansiveness financially, or in regards to possessions, values,- and/or interpersonally. People can be more open to compromise or at least settling things amicably. Needless to say, things are transforming. Pluto highlights our own power over our lives, as well as power dynamics, and things we have an almost obsessive drive and determination around. The New Moon’s lunar trine to this power broker planet suggests a harmonious force for change and authenticity, as well as the opportunity to make some significant power moves that can be a beneficial force for long-lasting transformations. A lunar semi square to Chiron in the afternoon may indicate a need to challenge certain vulnerabilities and weaknesses, in order to catch this wave to go with the flow of the inevitable transformations occurring now, and really step into our own personal agency over a process that has really taken on a life of it’s own at this point. Evening time see’s the Moon getting closer and closer to Venus as it heads into the later degrees of Taurus, and this indicates more curious and sociable trends are incoming. There’s a powerful and irresistible current towards more communication, stimulation, change and variety, with Mars sextile Uranus, and with Venus and Mercury both in curious Gemini. With Mercury trine Saturn and Venus to join shortly, certain changes are getting legs to stand on. There’s a desire to experience even more positive wins and upward, forward momentum. 


WED MAY 12.

The Moon enters talkative and curious Gemini at 5:43 AM PST. Here, it conjoins Venus and Mercury, and squares Jupiter which is perched in the final and most urgent degree of Aquarius. This can see an increased curiosity, and there can be an emphasis on communications that can be pleasant, perhaps busy. It’s a pleasure seeking vibe that also enjoys exchanging news, ideas and gathering information. It can be easy to find agreement under these configurations. A lunar trine to Saturn in early evening indicates that something feels more settled, or on solid ground than before. The lunar sextile to Chiron in the evening suggests this may increase our confidence or courage in some way. These configurations also highlight the ability to compromise or see eye to eye, perhaps where there were previous misgivings, misunderstandings, or differences. With the planet of consciousness expansion entering boundless Pisces tomorrow, there can be a desire to view things more holistically (*whole*istically), as opposed to lumping things and people into factions or collectives, or entertaining the fixed sign of Aquarius’ tendency to be too judgmental or in some cases dogmatic about it’s vision. Jupiter’s brief sojourn through Pisces before it retrogrades back into Aquarius again will assist in gaining perspective and reflection on Saturn’s journey through Mad Scientist Aquarius. The lunar square to Neptune tomorrow will highlight some things that will have to be watched and assessed carefully. Mercury and Venus will eventually both square Neptune, so the potential for confusion, uncertainty, and even duplicity or outright fuckery or deception will reach a high during those times, but will be fairly obvious. With Mars in comfort and security seeking Cancer, no one can hold the desire for a bit of self protectiveness against you. Mercury will also station retrograde at the end of May in 24 degrees Gemini, indicating there will be much to reflect on, and perhaps a second opportunity around something that was missed last year during Venus’ retrograde in Gemini.


THURS MAY 13.

Jupiter enters Pisces today in the afternoon. Jupiter here favors a softer and more compassionate attitude and a less direct, or results oriented approach, along with a more holistic perspective. Jupiter in Pisces is spiritual, compassionate, and deep. This brief sojourn will give us a little taste of what the full Jupiter transit will have in store for us. This can see the melting of barriers and the softening of harsh stances, and a broader collective interest in spirituality as well. Jupiter adores being in the sign of Pisces and feels very at home here.  Today see’s the Moon in Gemini conjunct Mercury, trine Saturn, and square Neptune. There is clearly a mystery that begs to be solved, or a desire to unearth the reality of a situation and see what is based and what is simply ideology, idealism, or hubris. The Moon trine Mercury, and Mercury trine Saturn can actually make bullshit very easy to spot and almost stand out like a sore thumb. In some ways it can even be the mutual discernment of bullshit and the desire for company that is more congruent and based in reality that brings people together with Venus conjunct Mercury. But there is a lot of compassion and understanding available in these configurations. Perhaps there is simply a release of things that don't make any sense and an embrace of that which withstands the test of based reality, -but also has an unbroken thread into life's deeper mysteries.  Regardless, there is an air of mystery and curiosity to these configurations as well, which can see a desire to immerse oneself into something or surrender to a powerful pull over the weekend. Also a desire to get to the bottom of something. We can feel like we are picking things up like a sponge. There’s a bit of moodiness to the Moon square Neptune, but it can see us drawn to unusual people or pastimes in an attempt at seeking an outlet or a source of stability and comfort. Jupiter in Pisces increases interest in the esoteric, spirituality, secrets, symbols, the occult, and the hidden meaning behind things. It is a desire to delve into the collective unconscious, the mysteries, faith, enlightenment, peace, understanding, innerstanding, overstanding, healing, and absolution. 


THE WEEKEND 


FRI MAY 14.

Today begins with the Moon still in curious Gemini, squaring Neptune, which can see some vague longings, fantasy, or confusion, and a continued need to get to the bottom of something or ensure we are getting the right facts about a person or situation. The Moon builds a trine to Jupiter freshly in Pisces and this can see an increase in creativity, generosity, and perhaps a strong desire to interact with others and dissolve barriers or increase our sense of adventure into the unknown. This can see us attracted towards unusual, spiritual, artistic, beautiful, peaceful people, scenarios or environments. The Moon enters comfort seeking Cancer at 6:30 PM PST, and this can see a growing desire to embrace certain unknowns or dissolve certain walls over the weekend. The remainder of this evening can see a lot of emotional generosity, and the heart chakra can be wide open. It can feel as if momentum is building towards something here, perhaps some kind of catharsis? A release? A surprising change of tack? A reveal? Who knows. But the emo scale looks palpable, and the psychic and emotional antenna can be sensitive to whatever is going on. These are good configurations for connecting as the atmosphere is very non judgmental and receptive. There could be something exciting, surprising, or unexpected about whatever goes down this weekend, even if it takes place entirely internally. 


SAT MAY 15.

Today see’s the Moon in cuddle seeking Cancer conjunct Mars and sextile Uranus, while squaring Chiron. This can see some surprising moves, and perhaps in some ways we could be feeling a little vulnerable or caught off guard with the Moon square Chiron. Or maybe we’re challenging ourselves in some way. The Moon conjunct Mars and sextile Uranus is brave and courageous, and willing to take risks, but also protective of it’s own interests and security. These configurations can see more initiative emotionally, or the ability to brave delicate, sensitive or perhaps vulnerable territory for the sake of authenticity, letting the chips fall where they may. A thing, situation, or person either has substance or doesn’t. Mars in the receptive, feminine sign of Cancer tends to go about things in a less direct, and roundabout way, but what’s clear is that security is as equally important as authenticity, individuality, and freedom/personal agency. Something or someone may appear to hit just this sweet spot, but is it/are they “safe”? Is it too good to be true? There’s a sense of vulnerability that needs to be addressed or faced down. There’s also a lot of empowerment. This weekend could certainly see some surprising impulses, dynamics or situations that shake up what’s been the established norm. Mars sextile to Uranus craves more emotionally authentic experiences. 


SUN MAY 16.

Today see’s the Moon in cozy Cancer trine Neptune and opposite Pluto. This can see a highly intuitive atmosphere that tends towards being reflective, perhaps even a little bit broody with the lunar/Pluto opposition. There may be a need to release our grip on something and go with the flow. It’s possible there’s subtle power or control struggles going on under the surface, or in the very least something that can potentially evoke intense feelings, not necessarily bad ones, perhaps even powerful attractions. A lunar sextile to the Sun in practical and tactile Taurus keeps us focused on what’s possible in the here and now, but also on what it is we desire for ourselves. What we’d like to make real, what we’d like to see happen in real life. The Moon/Neptune contact is imaginative, sensitive, reflective, and idealistic. The lunar semi square to Venus indicates that this could involve other people, or interpersonal interactions somehow, and some element of choice, with Venus in the sign associated with the tarot card of The Lovers. There could also be a reflection on values transpiring here as well, and long range plans and perhaps even partnerships or collaborations that have long range potential could be highlighted here.  Moon/Neptune can dream and idealize or place people on pedestals of idolatry, while the Sun/Moon contact keeps our feet on the ground and keeps us focused on our own mastery over the physical and practical world. It also highlights that the path to making dreams real is a humble step by step process that is rooted in the every day, not something that just magically happens. The Sun/ Moon/Neptune/Pluto contacts today can see some potent serendipities. Releasing control over things outside your control and going with the flow can see some pleasant things unfold. 


Sunday, May 2, 2021

ASTROLOGY FOR THE WEEK OF MAY 3-9 2021.




MON MAY 3.

After some interesting shifts over the weekend, today see’s the shifts continue with the Moon in Aquarius conjunct Saturn, while squaring the Sun, Uranus, and eventually Venus in Taurus. Mercury, planet of communications, commerce and short distance travel also shifts into Gemini at 7:49 PM PST. In some way, we could be in new territory. With the week beginning with a lunar/Saturn conjunction, there’s a sort of serious, get down to business vibe amidst a lot of shifts that are continuing to unfold. The Moon and Saturn attempt to anchor us and find stability within fluctuating and dynamic situations. With both Venus and Mercury currently squaring Jupiter, there’s an expansion happening interpersonally, financially and/or commercially, and Venus’ link to Neptune and Pluto suggests there can be high ideals and a lot of determination around all of this. In spite of obvious signs of progress and forward motion, there can still be some loose ends to sweep up this week to get things “just right” or to really settle into a new groove. Venus will follow Mercury’s footsteps into Gemini on Saturday, and this can see a build up to inspiring, beneficial, and positive communications, partnerships, collaborations, exchanges, or cooperative efforts, -but there may be some confusion or bemusement to navigate along the way. The week begins on a “gotta keep it together vibe”, as the positive momentum being generated by all of the shifts can be somewhat destabilizing or even distracting, so it’s important not to drop the bass kick to the entire ensemble. Saturn’s ongoing link to Chiron has healing as it’s modus operandi, and this highlights the crucial role that timing plays in everything. With Mars squaring Chiron, it might be important to note that if any acceleration forward doesn’t result in the positive reception or instant results we had hoped, -and instead triggers doubts or even old wounds or insecurities, Saturn’s positive link to healing Chiron indicates it’s most likely simply an issue of timing. Mars in Cancer can be hypersensitive to this, so this can be important to keep in mind.  Patience, determination, resilience, and consistency can pay off. 


TUES MAY 4.

Today begins with the Moon in the later degrees of Aquarius linking up to optimistic Jupiter. There can be some excitement around interactions, and/or creative/financial/or commercial endeavors. It can feel like new and exciting things are unfolding under the surface and in general. There’s a nervous energy around all of this as well, and it may not be easy to express everything we’d like to, and we can second guess ourselves or have some indecision around how to approach something or someone. Nevertheless, there’s a lot of hope and optimism amidst all this nervous excitement. There’s an expansive, adventurous and generous nature to the day where few things seem too far fetched. In the early evening, the Moon builds a trine to Mars in Cancer, and heads into Pisces at 7:09 PM PST. This see’s the emotions, imagination, and capacity for fantasy pleasantly stimulated, and we may have more courage, motivation, optimism, and drive around delving in beyond our comfort zones. The Pisces lunation can see a sort of preparatory and anticipatory vibe, and there can be a loosening of inhibitions, and more courage and motivation around taking positive risks.  This can see some unexpected surprises that lead us in unusual directions. Venus trine Pluto, which perfects very soon, highlights the importance of remaining true to ourselves and our values, likes and dislikes, and being authentic about following a path that truly makes us happy and deeply fulfilled. It also makes us dead ass serious about what and who brings us pleasure. Even if there are differences, doubts, questioning or restlessness around certain dynamics, situations, or people, or there is something brand new or very unconventional, highly unusual, or even somewhat intimidating about it,- there is a strong, undeniable and fundamental pull that exists (Venus/Pluto.) A willingness to compromise and become more actively curious, explorative and communicative will be highlighted by Venus’ movement into communicative Gemini at the weekend. 


WED MAY 5.

Today see’s the Moon in dreamy and imaginative Pisces trine Mars in sensitive Cancer while sextile the Sun and Uranus in Taurus. This coincides with Venus perfecting it’s trine to Pluto at 26 degrees in the early evening hours. Today can see some decisive realizations or possibly even some actions, but this being a Pisces lunation suggests that much of this can go down under the radar or internally/psychologically. A sort of resolve that dawns on us or possibly even something we just admit to ourselves. There’s a certain “undeniability” to these configurations that can see us getting real with ourselves about something we desire but may have wrestled with or fought somehow.  The Sun and Uranus highlights certain things in a very matter of fact way that can help us simply embrace something with less apprehension, doubt or complex. Mars sextile Uranus is more willing to venture outside of it’s shell and known comfort zones to embrace what is “weird”. The Moon conjuncts Neptune later on and this can see a sort of melting into this new level of authenticity, and there can be something highly spiritual about whatever is going on here that can also be excellent for creativity and overall motivation. There can be something “inevitable” about whatever realizations, epiphanies or decisive resolve that is occurring now. These configurations can also make us very receptive, and it’s a little easier to lower our guard to whatever or whoever we may have previously felt intimidated, doubtful, hesitant, restless, or apprehensive about. 


THURS MAY 6.

The early morning hours continue on the note of the Venus/Pluto perfection, which may have seen a decisive “coming to terms with”,  a very matter of fact, (and in some cases very physical/biological) pull towards something or someone.  The Moon conjunct Neptune today can see a reflective and imaginative atmosphere, steeped in fantasy, dreams, and possibly escapism. There may still be some uncertainty or hesitation around how exactly to go about something, indicated by the Saturn/Uranus link to the Sun, but it seems the resolve is there, and so is the optimism. Something can simply be too powerful to ignore or brush off, minimize, or explain away any longer.  The Moon goes on to sextile Venus and Pluto in the early eve/late afternoon, and this can see something or someone make quite an impact on us. It can almost be overwhelming, but not in a negative sense. Whatever is occurring here can actually be quite pleasurable, even if it’s taking place entirely internally. With Venus involved it’s almost certainly involving another person somehow, and this can see some profound inner shifts occurring under the surface within our own psyche, and in particular dynamics interpersonally or otherwise. There is an undeniable need to embrace our most authentic desires, and doing so (oddly) happens to be what is also most practical, realistic and feasible to our respective situation (Venus in Taurus.) In spite of this bent towards the humble and the practical, there’s also something highly idealistic, idyllic, and even downright magical about whatever we’re embracing or coming to terms with now. The Venus square to Jupiter, which will eventually be replaced by a trine, can make us feel extremely blessed, fortunate, and even lucky to have come across something precious and rare (Happiness? Love? Pleasure? Enjoyment? Prosperity?)-within such a humble, and common place framework, that actually supports rather than detracts from our further growth and development. The Moon/Pluto/Venus contacts today can see some powerful internal experiences, and interactions with others can be pleasant, even if they seem casual on the surface, they can make more of an impact than we maybe let on or make apparent. Much is going on under the surface with the Moon still in sensitive, passive, psychic and receptive Pisces, but this is nonetheless a powerful day.


THE WEEKEND.


FRI MAY 7.

This morning see’s the Moon in Aries conjunct Chiron, going on to sextile Mercury now in Gemini, and square Mars in sensitive, comfort seeking Cancer. This can see a sort of impatience and perhaps some vulnerability around getting certain conversations started or taking some sort of initiative in some way. With Mars squaring up to Chiron, while Saturn is sextile Chiron, it’s important not to take issues of poor timing to heart. With the Moon in courageous and assertive Aries sextile Mercury in Gemini, there can be a desire to communicate and get straight to the point, and perhaps an impatience to make something happen. The heart and mind are in agreement, but with the Moon square Mars it’s important not to let impatience spoil anything or seed doubts or insecurity where there need not be any. This one warning aside, today can see a good flow of communication, which can make it easier to talk about things or feelings that have been challenging to discuss directly. Mercury trine Saturn can help steady the reigns, and suggests a desire for communications of substance and meaning, or in the very least, to be taken seriously. The configurations indicate a mutual respect between parties, and people can say what they mean and mean what they say. It’s possible what is discussed has been thought about a long time, and even if this isn’t the case and it’s off the cuff, there’s an element of sincerity present. Even though the Mercury link to Saturn is harmonious, it still indicates a bit of shyness or inhibition, a sort of holding back and tempering, but what is present is a genuine curiosity and the ability to sit with something or someone and give it deeper thought and time. 


SAT MAY 8.

This morning see’s the Moon in Aries conjunct Chiron and sextile Saturn. A semi square to Venus in Taurus can see a desire to take action interpersonally, perhaps there’s a bit of eagerness, or a restless impatience, but maybe it’s also just a pleasant enthusiasm and the tension that accompanies excitement around something. The Moon/Saturn link can indicate a sort of “sitting with” the feelings. There’s a sort of inner stability and resilience that accompanies this aspect, and it’s possible we feel encouraged about something, or more settled around it. Mercury now sextile Chiron as well can indicate that certain channels of communications may have opened up more and there can be more of a desire to compromise or set certain preemptive judgements or assumptions aside in order to reach understandings or achieve more cohesion and harmonious flow. It also indicates the potential for some healing and even cathartic conversations. Venus enters Gemini at 7:01 PM PST this evening, which can see the planet of love, money, beauty and pleasure in a more curious and communicative form for the duration of this cycle. This evening ends with a lunar square to Pluto, which can see a sort of intense preoccupation building around something, perhaps we’re intensely excited and optimistic about the future possibilities.


SUN MAY 9.

Happy Mothers Day! Today begins with the Moon in late Aries, sextile Jupiter in Aquarius and square Pluto in Capricorn. This can see an intense sort of optimism around something. There’s an almost obsessed enthusiasm around something that seems to have really put some wind in our sails. Whatever it is, we’re very invested in it, -even if we try to tell ourselves otherwise. There’s an eagerness, and an impulsivity and compulsion to these maths that can make us less afraid about treading into previously intimidating or in some cases “taboo” territory. The Moon/Jupiter link gives us a sort of optimism and confidence that has an attitude of “even if it goes badly at least I gave it a shot.” The Moon heads into earthy and tactile Taurus a little after 4 PM PST, and this can see a wild hair twitch in our asses as it links up to Uranus (totally accidental pun there.) This evening can see us preparing for the week ahead but also entertaining some out of the box actions or initiatives. A sort of “feel the fear and do it anyway” kind of vibe. There can be something “different” or exhilarating about this. The lunar square to Saturn on Monday can see some inhibitions or challenges to get over, but it looks like we’re finally working up the balls to instigate a transformation around something.  This upcoming Tuesday can see inhibitions or barriers melting like chocolate that’s been left in the sun.
