Week Ahead – Monday, May 6th through Sunday, May 12th

Happy Sunday everyone! We are making our way into the first full May week. Today is a quiet one under a Void of Course Moon, which is usually a time to not take important actions or make any significant purchases. It’s an introspective phase that is suited for meditation or doing those mundane tasks around the home. Let’s have a look at what this week has in store for us.


In the early hours of the morning, the Moon will move into Gemini, where we become active, feel stronger emotional sensitivity and a need for socializing. We also have the tendency to fall under influences that can lead to the danger of getting off course and making mistakes. We may easily meet new people now, however half of the contacts we make will later turn out to be empty. Some of us will try to do everything all at once, which later leaves us stuck with unfinished projects and ideas. Mercury moves into Taurus today, which brings our thinking back down to earth and helps us accomplish a lot if we put our minds to it. We also have a challenging square between Venus and the North Lunar Node. With this transit, we may start noticing that the people in our lives are not giving us the encouragement and support we need where fulfilling our life purpose is concerned. Venus also rules finances and resources so we could run into issues around possessions, resources and finances that call for adjustments now. This isn’t a very long transit, lasting only a few days. So the things we come across may not be major issues. But if something significant does rear its head at this time, it could be a sign that we have something that needs to be looked at more closely.


This morning may start off feeling somewhat odd because we have the Moon in Gemini, which wants to move at a quick pace, and a challenging square between Venus and Saturn, which is patient, slow, and wants to take its time. There could be a lot of starts and stops, so try to pace yourself. Things will pick up the pace tomorrow.


In the wee hours of the morning, the Moon goes Void of Course for a few hours. It then moves into Cancer mid-morning, bringing a calmer, less restless energy our way. It’s a good energy for sharing and spending time with those in your inner circle. Things pick up a bit with a conjunction happening between Mercury and Uranus, which opens us up to innovative ideas. However, there is an impatience here that we may see with drivers on the road. There is also a sextile between the Sun and Neptune happening today. This transit illuminates our intuition and gives us faith in the blessings around us. It should start to feel as if we are flowing better with life today.


Today brings energies into play that will help us open up to something expansive and bigger in our lives. This is down to Venus being very active today, bringing energies that are supportive of manifesting our desires and needs. Venus will be in a happy little trine with Jupiter, which can draw those to us who appreciate who we are and are willing to lend support. It also brings some optimism our way. We also have a square between Venus and Pluto, which can make our relationships feel more intense, deeper, and transformative. Some of us may feel prompted to delve deeper down on a soul level in order to connect with our own inner beauty and sense of values. Mainly, this transit can shed light on those problem areas in our lives that need to go through a bit of a transformative process in order to heal.


In the early hours of the morning, the Moon will go Void of Course and remain that way until mid-afternoon. It then moves into heart opening Leo, just in time for the weekend. This Moon brings a cheery vibe, making it easier to be lifted out of the doldrums. Its a good time for presentations, celebrations and social events. You might want to leave the day open, and let your spontaneous mischievous child inside lead the way.



Aside from the playful Leo Moon energy going on this weekend, we also have a trine between the Sun and Saturn on Saturday. The Sun is energy and Saturn is discipline, and the Trine is the most supportive transit of them all. It brings us back into contact with ourselves and helps us to get to know ourselves through our relationship with, and our effect on, our environment. This is a time to examine your habits, your home situation, your work, and everything else that is important to you. Determine how they work on a practical level. Begin organizing your life and making an overall plan. Even your relationships should be supportive now. Sunday is a quiet one in the skies, but we still have that bit of Leo energy to play with as well.
