  • Posted on May 13, 2018 at 7:30 am

Happy Sunday everyone, and Happy Mother’s Day to all of you Moms in the U.S.A! We have a nice, cheery and chatty vibe for Mother’s Day so enjoy some time out with your Mom. We also have Mercury moving into Taurus today, so the next three weeks will be about putting some constructive efforts into our ideas because we can truly manifest some wonderful things now. Let’s see what the rest of this week has in store for us.


Monday is a quiet one in the skies for us. We do have a New Moon on Tuesday that stats out in Taurus and then ends in Gemini. This New Moon is a special one because for the first time in about 76 years we have inventive Uranus also moving into Taurus. The next 7 years could see technological changes in production. With the New Moon in Taurus, where we are given the opportunity to ground and settle any energies that we have unearthed. It brings a nurturing energy that allows us to move forward and guides us to physically engage in those things that nurture us. Later today, when the Moon moves into Gemini, our basic instinct is to communicate, think, and learn. We are motivated by a desire for variety and by an instinctive curiosity. The Moon in Gemini is light-hearted, breezy, and curious, but it can also be restless and fickle.


Wednesday brings a mixed bag. We have Mars moving into Aquarius while making a disruptive square to Uranus. The downside to this can be accidents, especially aviation related ones. It’s not a good time to force issues or machinery now because under this energy we see things break. The upside is that we can take action to open up to innovated ways to live our lives.


Thursday brings us an early evening Void of Course Moon that will shift into nurturing Cancer in the later part of the night. This energy will help to lessen some of that high nervous energy we were getting with the New Moon. Under Cancer’s influence, people become more sensitive and go deeper into their inner world, which takes on more importance at this time than the outer world. A feeling of belonging and safety is what motivates us under this influence. The Moon feels right at home in the sign of Cancer, as it rules the sign. This Moon position has much healing potential. Although insular by nature, our feelings run deep, making it an ideal time to get in touch with what motivates us. We want roots; we crave a sense of intimate connection that will.


Friday brings us a trine between Mercury and Saturn, making it a highly productive day for mental work and serious conversations. Mercury also squares off to the Lunar North Node, where we can feel compelled to do a 360 about where we have been headed on our life’s path. It’s a time when information or facts turn up that are in total contradiction to what we believed was true or real about our sense of life purpose. In some instances, we may feel as if someone else is just getting in our way. We may also find at this time that we have to express some information or a point of view that isn’t favourable or welcome to others, or it may feel like a real challenge to get our point across. If you find yourself in this kind of scenario, don’t go overboard trying to stand your ground. Instead, focus on what needs to be said and how best to say it.



Saturday sees Venus moving into Cancer for the next three weeks, so things like family, food, nutrition and beautification are good things to focus on. Venus will also be in a sextile with Uranus, an unpredictable energy that can feel quite exciting for the social aspects of our lives. We may find that enjoyment pops up where we least expect it. Anything that breaks away from our routines will feel like a very welcome change.


Sunday sees the Moon moving into Leo in the wee hours of the morning. Under Leo, we feel more energetic and optimistic. We feel like we can do anything! We crave compliments and appreciation and are generous with kind words to others. 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. We have Mars and Venus interacting with Chiron today as well. The Mars/Chiron aspect brings an energy boost that can be a tool we can use with extreme precision, accomplishing exactly what we need to do. It also brings a chance to take action that can bring about some healing resolutions to long-standing, ongoing problems you have been dealing with. The Venus/Chiron energy is more challenging and we may find that we are forced to make some adjustments in our relationships or finances.
