Week Ahead – Monday May 29th through Sunday June 4th

  • Posted on May 28, 2017 at 7:30 am

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you are all enjoying the long weekend and gorgeous weather we are having. These are the last few days of May and then we kick off a new month. We have a sextile between Mercury and Neptune happening today, where intuition tends to run high and we feel more sensitive artistically, our imagination is stirred, and we have an increased appreciation for subtleties. We do need to take care however, because it can be all too easy to get caught up in fantasizing and yearning for our hidden wishes. Mainly, this is a good time for creativity, optimism, intuition and hope. We just need to make sure that we stay grounded. Let’s have a look at what this week has in store for us.

Monday is Memorial Day in the USA and the day has a bit of a hurry up and wait feel to it under the influence of an opposition between Mars and Saturn, which can have you being fast acting one minute and in couch potato mode the next. Try to find a nice balance between the two and enjoy the day! We also have the Moon moving into Leo just after noon, so its a great time for doing something fun and creative.

Tuesday brings us a sextile between Mars and Uranus, where our energy levels tend to be a bit higher and we feel more enthusiastic towards work (not sure what happened to me on that one). It also becomes a bit easier to manage and motivate others in a positive way so this energy is great for getting group projects planned, started, and worked on. Its also a time for thinking outside of the box and for experimenting with new directions, responses, and actions. Some may find our spontaneity a bit out of character now, and for those who normally go overboard with spontaneity…well you may want to try to find some ways to channel this energy more constructively. The point here is to be refreshingly spontaneous…not impulsively reckless.

Wednesday is the end of the month, and we go out on a productive vibe with the Moon moving into Virgo in the late afternoon. In this mutable earth sign of Virgo, the mood is geared toward busy productivity and adjusting with minor tweaks here and there. It favours clearing, refining, purging, detoxing and organizing. It also favours launching self-improvement schemes. We find our steps are more purposeful, and this helps us with tasks that require patience and focus on details. We may find that we can get into this zen-like groove of action, so mundane tasks like cleaning don’t seem so laborious. We want to be working and seeing signs of tangible effort now. We also have a trine happening between Mercury and Pluto, making it a good day for projects that require some focus and expressing deep emotions. We also have a sextile between Mars and the North Lunar Node. For a couple of days prior and after today it could feel that opportunities are coming your way, with any action you take now having results or implications that reach farther than you expect. Keep in mind however, that this could come in any form, not just positive, but also anger, hostility, vindictiveness and rejection. Use this opportunity wisely.

Thursday begins the first of June and sees a trine between Venus and Saturn. During this transit taking care of the necessary-even unpleasant-tasks seems less of a burden. Assuming responsibility earns you the appreciation of others who admire your commitment. It’s a time where pleasure is made to last rather than immediate gratification. Some may feel an extra need to prove their responsibility to others. We can also find it easier to focus on projects that are creative in nature.

Friday brings a challenging square between Mars and Chiron, which means now can be a time for confronting issues in your life that involve why or how you get hurt by others, how you may hurt others, and how healing can take place in either of these scenarios. Whatever the reasons, this transit may give you a push that will help to steer you in a healing direction, possibly by showing you how and why the path you have been on does not lead to where you want to go. If you start to feel overwhelmed, take some time out from the stress to get re-centered and grounded.


Saturday starts off with a conjunction between Venus and Uranus, where we tend to have a taste for the unusual and the avant garde. You may find yourself itching for change now, and if you have been feeling stagnant, this energy will get you to make that much needed move. What makes us unique now is more attractive to others under this influence, so emphasize what makes you special. We also have a supportive trine between the Gemini Sun and Jupiter. According to the ancients this is one of the most positive transits. With the Sun and Jupiter working together we are able to work in harmony with our environment, radiating warmth and generosity to those around us.  It’s a really good energy for situations where we need to present an idea or project and need to get other people on board. Lastly, we have a trine between Venus and the North Lunar Node. For a couple of days prior and after today we find we feel a bit more comfortable in our own skins, as well as in the social world around this. So, its a good weekend for mingling and enjoying being ourselves.

Sunday starts us off with Mars moving into Cancer, and this is not a easy position for Mars as it’s sharper edges become softer and a bit more diluted. This is a good time, however, for us to assert ourselves in a more proactive way where protection of ourselves and our loved ones is concerned, as Cancer does focus on hearth, home, and personal emotions. Just think of a mama bear protecting her cubs and you will get an idea of how this energy can work. Pay attention to how you respond to any buried feelings that come up now. Try to avoid pushing these things back down. Instead respond to these emotions in a caring and nurturing way for both yourself and those around you. We have a tricky little square between the Sun and Neptune as well. Its tricky because it has the tendency to take those wistful ideas and wishful thinking, and make them seem more realistic than they actually are. What tends to happen then is that we become disillusioned and prone to disappointment. Some may want a fantasy to come true so badly that they disconnect themselves from any actual obstacles that get in the way. Really we need to be paying attention to those obstacles because they are needed and serve a purpose for our own self growth. If used right, this can be a creative and healing transit. We just need to listen to our inner voices a bit more now.
