Astrology For The Week Of May 6th-12th 2019

We begin this week with the Moon in Gemini, getting closer to Mars. A lot of busy activity, multitasking, communications, comings and goings are happening as we kick off the week. Some major changes and deep transformations are happening as Mercury hangs on the final degrees of Aries, set to perfect it’s conjunction to Uranus in Taurus when it shifts into this earthy and practical sign on Monday at 11:25 AM PST. This sets the stage for a lot of changes on a practical level. 

Venus still in tension to Saturn and Pluto, while engaging in an easy trine to generous Jupiter can create intense desire or even compulsion for pleasure and indulgence, while simultaneously not letting us quite give in or get carried away, due to responsibilities, or financial constrictions or delays regarding money, pleasure, indulgence and partnerships. Come the weekend, we may be able to finally let our hair down, as Venus slowly moves out of tension with taskmaster Saturn by Saturday the 11th. 

Tuesday see’s the perfection of the Moon/Mars conjunction in Gemini. This see’s the week get off to a hyper stimulating, busy, multitasking start. A lunar sextile to Venus in fiery Aries brings passion, enthusiasm, and pleasantness to the fore. Although many of the changes transpiring now can overtax the nerves with the Moon opposite larger than life Jupiter, it’s difficult to be upset about it when the direction things seem to be heading in seems so positive, exciting, and expansive. We could feel mildly hungover, as if our heads are spinning from all of the stimulation, changes, movement, and opportunities to make life more stimulating and exciting. There could definitely be a lot of movement, short distance travels, communications, and much to adapt to, but the trends seem to be pointing to things settling into a new and more optimized “groove.”


Wed see’s the Moon at home in sensitive Cancer. We could hear some surprising news or receive some communications that potentially stoke a sensitive area, or arouse vulnerability, or perhaps it simply involves something we have longings, fantasies, strong feelings, or ideals around, or something we’ve been waiting for. 

Thursday see’s the Moon in Cancer oppose Saturn, Pluto in Capricorn, and square Venus in Aries. Perhaps there is some impatience and some obstacles to navigate amidst all of the changes that are transpiring. A Lunar trine to Neptune can provide much empathy, while a stabilizing sextile the Moon makes to the Sun in Taurus helps with emotional fortitude through any adjustments that we’ve been undergoing. So in spite of any potential temporary frustrations, an attitude of gratitude, and focusing on the positive in situations will do much to mitigate any passing tension. 


Friday the 10th see’s the Moon in exuberant Leo. This set’s the stage for a weekend filled with excitement, enthusiasm, and a whole lot going on. It could be slightly destabilizing, with a Lunar square to both Mercury and Uranus in Taurus. A trine the Moon forms to Chiron in Aries though suggests opportunities to bring healing to situations. It may take us a bit to find our feet amidst the “new normal”, but the trends look promising. 

Saturday the 11th, Venus ends her tense square to Saturn, and it appears that there is something worth celebrating. If you could pick a day this week to party, Saturday looks prime. The Moon in Leo trines both Venus in Aries and Jupiter in Sagittarius, and Mars in Jupiter are both in positive relation to indulgent Venus. This is certainly a day marked for pleasure and enjoyment, and has “treat yoself” written all over it. 

Sunday looks even better, as the Moon links up nicely with Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Uranus. It is an energy that is simultaneously fresh, exciting, and stabilizing. Enjoy this weekend, it seems to be intended for that. 

Thanks for stopping by! May you all have a most excellent week, and I’ll see you all on Monday.
