Week Ahead – Monday, April 30th through Sunday, May 6th

Happy Sunday everyone! Here we are at the start of a new month and we start off celebrating May Day/Beltane. Today we are under the influence of the Scorpio Moon, which will be a Full Moon tomorrow morning. Scorpio can help us release our fears and takes us to new emotional depths. With the Sun in Taurus at this time, we are able to manifest our desires and goals once Scorpio has removed any self-defeating beliefs and behaviours. One thing we need to be aware of right now is a challenge during this Full Moon from Mars and Pluto, which came together a couple of days ago. It brings a rudeness to the mix, so we need to avoid angry people and situations. Now, let’s take a look at what this new week has in store for us.


Monday starts off with that Scorpio Full Moon, which is a good time for releasing, harvesting, and letting go. The Moon in Scorpio urges us to uncover our own power, and it’s an excellent time to rid ourselves of old fears and limiting habits. It can be an intimate and passionate time. Avoid manipulative tactics, brooding, and suspiciousness. We also have a square between the Sun and Lunar North Node. The North Node represents the point in our life that is forward moving and our overall life lessons. Some even say that it represents our destiny. So, this aspect taking place today can bring feelings of conflict between our sense of identity and purpose with the lessons we are needing to learn in our lives. It can manifest through situations where we feel we are being forced off course or forced to take a detour that is not as direct as our chosen road. That tends to make people feel uncomfortable but there is usually more to those detours than we realize. Some may find themselves confronted by dilemmas and conflicts at this time that causes stress and these are situations that we may normally resist. We may feel the effects of this Sun/Node transit for about a week and a half prior to, and a week and a half after this date. It can cause those areas that the Moon covers, such as our intuition, sensitivity and inner feelings, to feel unstable or out of balance.


Tuesday is May Day or Beltane to our Pagan brothers and sisters. Beltane celebrates the return of the sun and fertility. Our morning begins with a Void of Course Moon that will be with us until the late afternoon. It then moves into Sagittarius, bringing some peace and stability. We tend to become a bit more orderly and calm, are ready to follow routines and rules and have a need for giving and receiving advice and recommendations. Our focus turns to our social life and where we fit in. It also turns from inner soul searching to exploring the world around us. This lunar mood is very adventurous, active and restless for exploration. We want to experience life first hand. we want to get outdoors, see the sights, connect with nature, go places we haven’t been before.


Wednesday brings a harmonious sextile between Venus and the Lunar North Node. So we find balance in our domestic life and our those relationships where we feel close to others. We find it easier now to express our feelings, which contributes to a happier love life. Our focus also turns towards making our home more pleasing. If you have a sense of well-being when you think about the possibilities of love, pay attention to it, and believe in it.


Friday is a quiet one in the skies but in the wee hours of Friday morning, the Moon will go Void of Course for a brief period. It then moves into Capricorn, where our emotional charge seems to decrease as our feelings of duty and responsibility move to the fore. We tend to become more practical and logical, as well as more demanding and less sensitive to others and ourselves. Its a good time for creating structure and planning ahead. This can be a very sober influence–even a depressing one. However, it can also be a productive time when we look reality in the face.



Saturday is a quiet one in the skies for us but we still have the energy of the Capricorn Moon in play. So, we can focus on planning and being productive. Sunday brings us a sextile between the Sun and Neptune and this transit illuminates our intuition and gives us faith in the blessings around us. We tend to feel like we are flowing more easily with life as solutions appear all by themselves. Let go of imagining what is not possible and focus on what is. It’s a good transit for pursuing mystical and spiritual matters, which is where our thoughts seem to drift at this time. If you have been feeling a bit out of tune or disconnected with the Universe/Divine, the energy of this transit can help you to reconnect again.  Sunday afternoon brings a brief Void of Course Moon that will shift into Aquarius soon after. When the Moon is in Aquarius it brings us feelings of openness with a sense of inner freedom. Our emotions become more alive and we feel we can express them more freely. What we can’t cope with are limitations being imposed upon us or pressure from others because our main focus is on our inner feelings of independence. This is a time that promotes social gatherings, dealing with group ideals and goals for the future, brainstorming, new ideas, and progressive changes.
