Welcome to Memorial Day weekend, and as expected on a versatile Gemini Sun holiday, this weekend now has a multiplicity of meanings and ways to celebrate. We’re called to remember those who gave their all in military service as well as celebrate weddings and graduations, take advantage of blowout sales and tackle our summer-preparation home chores. Gemini is the master of the multitask, we may be able to concentrate best when we have several pots cooking, but let’s not get spread too thin.
This holiday weekend comes at a really good time for many people. Last week Saturn trine Uranus, an aspect that can relieve pressure by creating changes, but can really unsettle ordinary routines, work, systems of power, authority structures. Our security can feel challenged, and work may have unusual exciting or been a real pain lately.
This unsettled quality to our work needs more attention this week as Mars opposes Saturn, an aspect which can leave us frustrated because we can’t always do what we want to do until we crank through our work and responsibility. It can also bring some tough lessons home to roost if we have let our responsibilities slide or have misused our personal authority. Which might bring interesting consequences in our current political scene.
Now these changes to our Saturnine systems can be good news if the old patterns aren’t working for us. But people who are insecure in their authority may be unusually anxious, particularly if they are new at the job or feel out of control. This nervousness can lead to bad management, and that will take grace to contain and heal.
For all of us who are in any sort of position of authority, let’s see if we can pour out authentic reassurance and be grateful for what works to reassure the troops. If emotional patterns or sore points stir up, it furthers to practice good self-care and retrain our nervous system. If the person above us is acting out because they’re feeling insecure, we may need to lead upwards; instead of reacting and getting our feelings hurt from their brittleness, find some way to encourage collaboration. And possibly most important, if we have time off this weekend, let’s really put those work problems aside and take a deep breath, so we can return next week with more resilience.
This weekend will be busy enough with other things; we may need to multi-task up a storm with the Sun, Moon, and Mars all in Gemini. On Friday and into Saturday the mood is nervy, verbal, funny but easily worried. Venus in Aries helps us do what needs to be done, but keeps the heat simmering on all our emotional responses, both the highs and the lows, so we may say more than we intend. Or just spill national secrets.
The mood becomes less buzzy and more cozy as the Moon enters sensitive, domestic, if self-protective Cancer on Saturday. A friendly sextile between Mercury and imaginative Neptune encourages a nice splash in the water and empathic conversation, but it can also leave us feeling like we need some time out of ordinary reality. Enjoy a break, but watch out for inebriated drivers.
On Sunday and Monday those household chores beckon as willful Mars opposes responsible Saturn. If we can’t do what we really want to do, let’s make the best of what we end up doing instead. Monday may be the best time for a community picnic as the Moon heads into sociable Leo.
Midweek that capacity to multi-task may be put to the test, we can be really busy but buzz from task to task without much opportunity to complete them. We may be tempted to speak with more indignation and surprise than we really feel, so let’s keep it real and see if we can find the facts amid any hubbub. Mercury trines Pluto on Wednesday and truth comes out, lost objects can be found and information exchanged. And that new information may help us make important decisions.
Friday, May 26: Yesterday’s New Moon in Gemini continues to vibrate and impart a funny, flirtatious, repartee but suggests we have thousands of unfinished conversations and projects that need tending to ASAP. Let’s prioritize and follow through. Morning flows fairly smoothly, if a nit nervy and scattered, with a few unexpected errands. Tonight, the energy is articulate but brittle as the Moon conjuncts irritable Mars and opposes serious Saturn. Morning flows fairly smoothly, tonight brings flare-up of impatience or edgy humor as the Moon conjuncts Mars and then opposes Saturn. Let’s engage the great and potentially deep conversation, but be careful with feelings in our witticisms and not take it too personally if other people’s nerves make them brittle.
Moon trine Jupiter 3:26 AM, Moon square Neptune 4:24 PM, Moon sextile Venus 1:49 PM, Moon conjunct Mars 8:20 PM, Moon opposed Saturn 10:52 PM.
Saturday, May 27: This morning it pays to rattle around and have conversations, as the mood is generally extroverted and talkative. We turn inwards or more introverted this afternoon, the mood shifts towards long walks, picnics with those we know well, house projects, and domestic policy. If familiar irritants stir up, habits that we are allergic to, we can practice better self-care this time as Mercury semi-squares Chiron and quincunx Jupiter. Good food furthers.
Moon sextile Uranus 12:18 AM, Moon enters Cancer 5:24 AM, Mercury semi-square Chiron 11:21 PM, Mercury quincunx Jupiter1:17 PM.
Sunday, May 28: Keep the agenda low this morning; sit with spirit and memories, and a nice glass of iced tea, as Mercury sextiles dreamy Neptune. Swim or sweat, let water work its magic. Feelings stir strongly midday as the Moon opposes Pluto and we sensitize to partings, both temporary and permanent. Honor memories of the past, but don’t project these feeling onto the future.
Mercury sextile Neptune 1:03 AM, Moon trine Jupiter 2:56 AM, Moon trine Neptune 4:07 AM, Moon sextile Mercury 4:27 AM, Moon opposed Pluto 12:05 PM, Moon square Venus 5:02 PM.
Monday, May 29: Responsibilities come due, the chores catch up with us this morning. The mood becomes more festive and sociable this evening as the Moon enters Leo, perfect for gatherings. Ego issues can complicate if we try to collaborate on a project later in the day because everyone thinks they have the right idea, but will improve with patience and mutual appreciation.
Mars opposed Saturn 12:54 AM, Moon square Uranus 12:58 AM, Moon enters Leo 6:11 AM, Moon sextile Sun 9:17 PM.
Tuesday, May 30: Keep an eye on changing circumstances; events move fast, news and opportunity flicker by as active Mars sextiles unsettled Uranus. Impatience and irritation may provoke potentially productive action, but we have to stay in the driver seat. Consequences come home to roost. Results of long efforts may begin to show results.
Moon sextiles Jupiter for 50 6 AM, Moon square Mercury 12:47 PM, Mars sextiles Uranus 8:39 PM, Moon trine Venus 11:53 PM.
Wednesday, May 31: Our minds can work over time, we may think too much and have trouble staying in our hearts as Mercury trines investigative Pluto while the Moon enters Mercurial Virgo. Go deep, get profound, but don’t worry as a recreational sport. Catalog personal successes and strong points with kindness so the Virgo self-consciousness doesn’t become unproductive. Look for interesting investigative results; find missing things, buried answers, and fresh truths.
Moon trine Saturn 2:22 AM, Moon trine Uranus 4:50 AM, Moon sextile Mars 5:14 AM, Mercury trine Pluto 6:02 AM, Moon enters Virgo 10:15 AM.
Thursday, June 1: Be ready to meet new people, ready to let go of stuff, thoughts, people of the past and strike out in new territory as Venus approaches a conjunction with Uranus. Old problems may beckon but we can stay on target. Sure, we value loyalty from the past and the beauty of old things as Venus also trine Saturn, but may really not be interested in what no longer works.
Moon square Sun 6:42 AM, Venus trine Saturn 9:23 AM. Moon opposed Neptune 12:14 PM, Moon trine Pluto 9:09 PM.

Deep changes are afoot and the momentum is building. We have an opportunity to balance a healthy sense of responsibility with the ability to embrace change as Saturn, the planet of structure, security, and limitations, forms a trine with change-inducing Uranus. A trine is a collaborative aspect, and those supportive aspects offer an opportunity but don’t usually insist that we seize the potential of the moment. That is up to us.
Now the headlines could get exiting this week as this aspect can change the landscape, both politically and geologically, by releasing tension where it has built up. Look for movement in the big game of chess, a slight if important re-alignment of boundaries and support. But most of us will feel this opportunity on a subtler level, and may find areas of life which have felt stuck or predictable may now begin to shift. So, let’s be ready to move with purpose and intention if a door opens.
We may feel a bit tender and touchy under a sensitive Pisces Moon as the weekend begins, and just want some stress-free time to renew. But we may still be nagged by a soul impatience to push forward anyway with Venus in restless Aries and Mars in nervy Gemini, who like to keep the weather stirred up, whether on the plains or in our hearts. Take every opportunity to refill the wells with the scent and feel of springtime, but stay awake enough to pursue opportunity.
The Sun joins Mars in Gemini on Saturday and Gemini gets the party started and keeps the journalists writing away. News spreads like wildfire. That twin Gemini multitasking, versatile, nervy, talkative energy can also help us finish final papers and part ways, and make any needed adjustments for the coming summer landscape.
The Moon enters Aries on Sunday and approaches a beautiful conjunction with Venus on Monday, together they turn up the volume on all impatience and emotional responses. Our tempers spike when we feel thwarted. We may feel resistant to the boring and ordinary, but ready to throw our energy into whatever grabs our heart and imagination.
After a busy and eventful Monday, Tuesday the Moon enters Taurus, and slows down the pace but and trenches are opinions. Keep the conversation going, but avoid entrenching statements and stay open to possibilities. Keep people talking if they feel they start to feel reactive.
The Sun forms a minor challenging aspect to Pluto on Wednesday, and Venus squares Pluto on Thursday. Together they leave our hearts all too aware of recent losses or disappointments, as well as endings that may be necessary before new beginnings, the doors that close before another open. Be careful not to generalize this and let go of what is worth fighting for. Don’t push people away unnecessarily. Take a moment to just sit still with feelings and let them flow. Then bring attention back to the positive changes under way this spring, and the last scent of lilac on the air.
Friday, May 19: The Pisces Moon sensitizes us while Saturn trines Uranus and asks profound questions about how we work with authority and what manifests our fundamental building blocks. We’re tired of bullies, however we see them, as mars quincunx Pluto and keeps us stirred up. On the other hand, Venus opposes Jupiter and brings a social emotional excitement that would rather be in love, creative, express directly or just have a good party. Relationships can spike extreme moods. Feel the mix, and choose where to tune in.
Saturn trine Uranus 12:14 AM, Moon sextile Mercury 3:37 AM, Mars quincunx Pluto 7:05 AM, Venus opposed Jupiter 8:11 AM, Sun sesqui-quadrate Jupiter 10:18 AM, Moon conjunct Neptune 10:50 PM.
Saturday, May 20: Roam in the dream world, dance with the archetypes as Moon conjuncts imaginative Neptune this morning. Watch out for floods or uncooperative liquids. More practical elements need attention midday, and we can feel creative discontent with ourselves, wardrobes, garden, or politics. Or be called to be compassionate, even when it’s inconvenient. The Sun enters Gemini and enlivens the conversation. Tonight, the mood is emotionally labile but sparklingly articulate.
Sun semi-square Venus 10:36 AM, Moon sextile Pluto 9:04 AM, Moon semi-square Mercury 9:28 AM, Moon square Mars 10:28 AM, Sun enters Gemini 2:30 PM, Moon square Saturn 9:39 PM.
Sunday, May 21: It’s a pro-active, can-do, get-it-done day, though irritation and anxiety spike easily as the Moon enters directive Aries. Sitting still can be a problem at a graduation ceremony, it helps to be able to pace or move. An irritating Mercury-Mars semi-square can sharpen our tongues and increase accidents midafternoon. Nasty truths will come out. Let’s keep the shoulders loose and relaxed, filter that first response, and enjoy the enthusiasm. If we stomp off in a snit, let’s make it a good and safe hike.
Moon conjunct Chiron 12:56 AM, Moon enters Aries for 10 AM, Moon sextile Sun 5:11 AM, Mercury semi-square Mars 1:31 PM.
Monday, May 22: Objectivity can be scarce on the ground but opinions are rampant as a lot of emotional fuel pumps in. Don’t go haring off without checking your source and facts first. Most of us can put this into simple enthusiasm and productive action, though tempers spike quickly if we feel ordered or round or thwarted in our desires, but we can usually respect another’s independent will.
Moon opposed Jupiter 3:38 AM, Moon conjunct Venus 8:08 AM, Moon semi-square Sun 8:37 AM, Moon square Pluto 12:43 AM, Moon sextile Mars 4:35 PM.
Tuesday, May 23: Let’s be light on our feet and ready to adjust, because sudden changes can surprise us as the Moon conjunct erratic Uranus in Aries. The Moon enters durable and poetic Taurus midday, conjuncts Mercury tonight, and can slow down the pace. We can follow through and get work done instead of just having to put out fires. Tonight, comfort foods and supportive comments further.
Moon trine Saturn 12:14 AM, Moon conjunct Uranus 12:59 AM, Moon enters Taurus 6:32 AM, Moon semi-square Mars 6:09 PM, Moon conjunct Mercury 8:12 PM.
Wednesday, May 24: Wednesday, May 24: Reliability is important; the day starts out sweet and solid as the Taurus Moon conjuncts Mercury, though we need people to do what they say they were going to do. Tonight, brings a Plutonian edge; some will feel bittersweet melancholy, and others find an excuse to be difficult and try to throw their weight around.
Moon sextile Neptune 5:12 AM, Moon trine Pluto 1:08 PM, Sun sesqui-quadrate Pluto 9:15 PM.
Thursday, May 25: We can engage a rapid response to difficulties. Thoughtful moods linger underneath, but the surface tweets and buzzes. The Moon conjuncts the Sun in verbal, anxious Gemini this afternoon at 1:44 PM trailing a funny lightweight, sound-bite-focused buzz over some truly profound feelings as Venus squares Pluto and Mercury semi-square Saturn. Take care of important relationships and avoid a tendency to isolate. Cynicism can work as self-protection, as long is it doesn’t hurt more than it protects. Hang in there.
Moon sextile Chiron 3:33 AM, Moon enters Gemini 6:15 AM, Venus squares Pluto 10:21 AM, Moon conjunct the Sun 1:44 PM, Mercury semi-square Saturn 5:55 PM.

Mother’s Day, that fertile Taurus holiday, is often loaded with complex layered feelings sprigged with lilac and daffodil, and this year is no exception. It may help to open the aperture around mothering, and support how we can mother ourselves, how we can honor the mother within, and the earth as the mother of all. It’s particularly important to find a way of honoring the archetype when we don’t have a mother to honor, or when that relationship is caught in the weeds.\
The weekend starts with a competitive enthusiasm as Mars trines Jupiter under an upbeat Sagittarius moon. We can be unusually honest and say what we mean. Mercury is still conjunct Uranus in Aries which winds up our nerves and encourages us to say outrageous things. It can feel good to get on our high horse of righteousness and launch a crusade, but let’s direct this towards improving the world rather than each other. No crusades at home over brunch.
family traditions further, though it’s good to bring a note of levity and flowers. If waves of melancholy wash through sometime Sunday or Monday, honor the feelings but let them flow out on the receding tide.
Our nervous systems are running extra voltage these weeks, with Mercury near Uranus in fiery Aries and Venus and Mars both in extroverted signs. Too much energy is taking us out and about, so much is happening in a short period of time and needs juggling that it can be hard to truly relax long enough to rest to the profound level, and this can leave us feel overextended and tired unless we make that effort.
The mood grows more serious late Saturday and Sunday as the Moon enters Capricorn and conjuncts Pluto, formal or family traditions further, though it’s good to bring a note of levity and flowers. Let’s see if we can bring some joy and let go of a need to prove ourselves. And, if waves of sad emotions wash through sometimes Sunday or Monday, it furthers to honor the feelings but let go of the story and let the feelings flow out on the receding tide.
Early next week can be a strategically important time where we plan actions for the next few months. Connect with allies and see how mutual projects fit together as the Sun forms minor challenging aspects to Saturn, the planet of organization. If we grow anxious around what’s going to happen in the future, it can be relieved by planning and reviewing our range of possibilities. Bring out the maps and look for the bright spot.
We may have a patch of confusion or desire to escape from it all on midweek as Jupiter challenges Neptune. Our spiritual or personal ideals may feel challenged or we may be challenged to act in accordance with our ideals. Be cautious around any unusual craving for sweets, but do consider comfort foods or a soak in a hot spring. A little easy self-care can really help renew resilience for the work ahead.
Friday, May 12: A friendly if competitive day calls us to advocate for good causes, but pay attention to avoid unnecessary action accidents or tangential arguments midday. Debates abound. Compete for one’s personal best, or keep up sporting sense of humor about it all. Small decisions may be required this afternoon that end one path and allow us to proceed on another. Tonight, it furthers to dance and wander under the moonlight.
Moon trine Venus 3:40 AM, Mars trine Jupiter 4:18 PM., Moon square Neptune 3:08 PM, Moon opposed Mars 4:44 PM.
Saturday, May 13: A wandering if nervy morning can renew us if we escape from chores and do something spontaneous while the Moon trines unexpected Uranus. Though we may need to focus on responsibilities to home and family this afternoon, we can bring as much humor and joy to it as possible as the Moon conjunct Saturn in Sagittarius. Conversation over dinner can scintillate as the Moon trines Mercury, but grow grimmer later on as the Moon enters Capricorn.
Moon trine Uranus 3:45 PM, Moon conjunct Saturn 4:56 PM, Moon trine Mercury 8:14 PM, Moon enters Capricorn 11:37 PM.
Sunday, May 14: Sleep in this morning as Mercury semi-squares Neptune, the dream world stays close to us well into the morning. Breakfast in bed a beautiful thing. Though our communication can be a little off with one another and it’s easy to miss signals or feel a little at a sink with one another. A note of formal notice to Mother’s Day, traditions routines, practical giving someone in the practical gift of helpful support, take a moment with our memories or our unfulfilled longings. Yet we need to breathe useful creativity into this moment.
Mercury semi-square Neptune 4:36 PM,’s Moon square Venus 8:23 PM.
Monday, May 15: Follow through on plans initiated over the last few weeks as Mercury spends the last day in Aries. The mood can be uncomfortable, a push-pull, as our wills tug on one another in an existential discontent this afternoon as the Moon conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn. Let’s avoid unnecessary conflict, celebrate diversity, and use this tension to work together in our different ways to move the ball forward.
Moon square Jupiter for 10 AM, Moon conjunct Pluto 2:23 PM, Mercury enters Taurus 10:06 PM.
Tuesday, May 16: Our nervous system begins to slow down stop revving and build a steady or momentum as Mercury enters Taurus. We need to seduce with words, paint pictures rather than duel. A collaborative approach to logistical problems furthers as the Sun quincunx Saturn and the Moon enters Aquarius. Give people room to tell their stories, and they will be more cooperative.
Moon trine Sun 3:16 AM, Moon square Uranus 4:22 AM, Moon enters Aquarius 11:44 AM, Moon square Venus 12:54 PM, Sun quincunx Saturn 11:28 PM.
Wednesday, May 17: Our ideals can be challenged today, and so can our sense of reality. It would further to give ourselves some down time and drift away, but if we can’t, let’s be gentle on our souls but look at how we may be challenged to truly walk our talk. Hypocrisy gets exposed. Evening brings a fresh action and activism as the Moon Jupiter and Mars form a grand trine.
Jupiter quincunx Neptune 2:36 AM, Moon semi-square Saturn 10:24 AM, Moon sextile Venus 12:08 PM, Moon trine Jupiter 3:15 PM, Moon trine Mars 11:38 PM.
Thursday, May 18: Tie up loose ends and take care of ongoing work; persist as the planets form gently competent aspects today. It’s easy to square off around dinner time, so it won’t further to push, but debates may just be our way of our form of camaraderie. Our sensitivities increase tonight as the Moon enters Pisces, suddenly we may begin to catch up on unprocessed feelings. Keep the hankies handy.
Sun sextile Chiron 2:06 PM, Moon sextile Uranus 3:00 PM, Moon sextile Saturn 3:05 PM, Moon square Sun 6:32 PM, Moon enters Pisces 9:51 PM.

Changes, reversal, adjustments, and explorations, this week could be exciting. And if it’s not, we may be tempted to start trouble and make it so as Mercury, is finally direct and moving forward, building up steam in restless Aries, and then conjuncts the asteroid Eris and Uranus as Mars semi-squares them all this weekend.
The clutch is in, and we are changing gears. Recent political and personal turmoil and excitement created while Mercury stationed at this tricky point, going back and forth over Uranus and Eris, named after the goddess of discord, can wear on our nerves. The current is unexpected and exciting, erratic and electric; as Uranus charges up our nervous systems we can both feel buzzy enough to delay sleep, and never quite feel rested, as if our engines are running too hot.
We can call up the energy for emergencies or for an exciting moment though, but respond well to urgencies. Routine is hard to relax into- we may just have to find way to trick ourselves into finding the thrill in our daily life to kick us into efficiency.
A Virgo Moon helps us clean up our act and our work as the week ends, but that, along with a semi-square between Mars and Uranus over the weekend can leave some of us cranky and painfully aware of unfinished edges and recent mistakes. Mechanical difficulties can spur our ingenuity. We may have to run twice as far to accomplish normal things unless we stop and take a moment to return to our center and assess what would be the most efficient way forward. Emotionally, we can alternate between being proud of our rugged individualism and independence, and wondering why people don’t give us more help. (Hint, it may be our attitude).
With the Sun in Taurus and the Moon in Libra, both Venus-ruled signs, it can be a cuddly weekend. It helps our potentially neurologically fried nervous system to take a moment in the Sun and soothe ourselves with healthy creature comforts. This friendly overtone lasts through Monday, so let’s extends ourselves now and make the connections we need. The Moon heads into Scorpio late Monday night and waxes full on Wednesday, one of the most broody and moody full Moons of the year.
On Tuesday, the Sun trines Pluto planet of death, rebirth, power struggles and empowerment as Mercury conjuncts Uranus, planet of change. We can expect some shifts in direction energy and momentum beginning to build, and the effect may shock us, one way or another. Which direction these changes take us is very much a wildcard and up to all of us. Let’s use this intensity wisely. Make it also a meditation to transcend resentments, research the depths, and nourish our roots.
Thursday brings more upbeat Sagittarius Moon helps us move on. Mars squares Neptune which may take away some certainty of the future, but also helps us drop the resentments and move past any recent stalemate. Mercury trine Saturn bringing fresh concentration sanity, and can do ability. For a bringing back momentum and competence if we choose to engage.
Friday, May 5: The Virgo Moon forms a grand trine with the Sun and Pluto and asks if we’re doing enough. Work flows when the answer to that is yes. Morning confusion leaves us fuzzy-headed as the Moon opposes Neptune, but turns into a productive if nervy afternoon. Though we can get so hyper focused on what needs to be done that we are cavalier with others’ feelings unless we consciously keep our hearts open. Efficient if surgical decisions can be made. Tonight, conversation rocks, but edginess makes it hard to wind down.
Sun quincunx Jupiter 1:59 AM, Moon opposed Neptune 5:27 AM, Moon trine Sun 8:14 AM, Moon trine Pluto 3:56 PM.
Saturday, May 6: We can feel old this morning and need extra rest as the Moon squares Saturn but it may be hard to sleep in as Mercury conjuncts Uranus and nudges us to get on with life. Chores flow easier this morning, we need time for connection and creativity, to respond to a spontaneous suggestion this afternoon. Edgy tempers can be sweet until rubbed the wrong way, then sharp spikes of temper and sudden jerkiness can precipitate minor accidents. Watch a passive-aggressive undertone. We need excitement but in a way that is safe, fair, and alive.
Moon square Saturn 6:41 AM, Moon enters Libra 12:20 PM, Mars semi-square Uranus 7:53 PM, Moon opposed Venus 9:21 PM.
Sunday, May 7: Take any opportunity to prepare recently rest up relationships are nervous system. And take an opportunity to create space in the heart in the world around the problem as the Moon conjunct Jupiter in Libra this afternoon. Regain equilibrium. Reach out to a larger community and create more emotional stability.
Moon trine Mars 9:56 AM, Moon conjunct Jupiter 5:01 PM.
Monday, May 8: It’s a tricky day, decisions can toggle back and forth as the Libra Moon opposes Mercury and Uranus. Don’t buy into a false sense of urgency and be forced to make a move before it’s right, but do pay attention to sudden opportunities or real emergencies. The landscape continues to shift and change over the next few days. Watch where the mind goes tonight as the Moon enters Scorpio; our soul wants to look under rocks and into caves. We need to do the deep work, but not get stuck in those dark corners.
Moon square Pluto 1:56 AM, Moon opposed Venus 1:41 PM, Moon opposed Uranus 2:47 PM, Moon sextile Saturn 4:58 PM, Moon enters Scorpio 11:01 PM.
Tuesday, May 9: Stay in touch with ongoing conundrums and questions as decisions ripen. This is a pivot point, and consequence become manifest as the Sun trines Pluto while Mercury conjuncts Uranus exact. Decisions that have been going back and forth for two months now may now take a decisive step. What was stuck can may become unstuck. We can speak in judiciously, and comments made can shock us into action.
Sun trine Pluto 12:23 PM, Moon semi-square Saturn 10:39 PM, Mercury conjunct Uranus 11:19 PM.
Wednesday, May 10: Legend has it that Buddha was born under a tempestuous Full Moon in Scorpio, like today, and so he understood how suffering is instigated when we desire or crave something other than what we have. We get a review lesson today. Our feelings need to flow, rather than swirl into a maelstrom. We can hurt with longing for different politics, events, circumstances than what we have. Jealousy, resentment, fury, passion, depth, all simmer in the sub-ether. Or we can redirect the Scorpio Moon focus into a search for solutions, and find gratitude for what’s worthy in our life. So let’s use this focus wisely.
Moon trine Neptune 2:39 AM, Moon sextile Pluto 1:28 PM, Moon opposed Sun 3:42 PM.
Thursday, May 11: Our nervous system can either relax, unwind, or feel tired this morning, as we crash off the full Moon and our motivation softens as Mars squares Neptune, but spirits lift as the Moon enters Sagittarius midday. This afternoon we begin to see how the dust settles enough for us to see farther on down the road and begin to make pragmatic long-term plans as Mercury trine Saturn.
Moon trine Chiron 6:30 AM, Moon enters Sagittarius 10:59 AM, Mars squares Neptune 11:51 AM, Mercury trine Saturn 2:14 PM.
