Week Ahead – Monday, May 21st through Sunday, May 27th

  • Posted on May 20, 2018 at 7:30 am

Happy Sunday everyone! We have that energetic and optimistic Leo Moon energy in play today, as well as a boost from Mars’s interaction with Chiron, meaning we can accomplish just about anything today. The only challenge today comes from Venus interacting with Chiron, which may mean we need to make some changes or adjustments in the areas of love and finances. Use these energies wisely and enjoy the day! Now, let’s take a look at what this week has in store for us.


Monday is the day the Sun moves into Gemini, so Happy Solar Return to all my fellow Gemini’s! The Sun will be in Gemini for a month, which will help us to open up to new ideas, explore new opportunities, or activate our information seeking and restless sides. Gemini’s influence also grants us some much-needed flexibility and a playfully realistic attitude about ourselves. Careful not to get irritable if everyone’s not moving as quickly as you — and watch for idle gossip!  The Sun in Gemini is a good time for getting your point across, writing letters or speaking in public, initiating flirtatious new friendships, and taking short trips. The Moon will also go Void of Course in the early hours and remain that way until tomorrow morning.


Tuesday begins with the Moon moving into Virgo in the early hours of the morning. A Virgo Moon is really good for organizing, cleaning, sorting and generally being more efficient. A Virgo Moon always reminds me of Spring cleaning where we de-clutter, make room, open the windows and let the fresh air flow through. On a more mental level, some may crave mentally stimulating puzzles, games and reading to satisfy the active mind. For those who have felt overwhelmed by life, now is a time when you can break down those problems into smaller, individual, and more manageable tasks. We have a sextile between the Sun and Chiron today, a harmonious transit that helps to shed light on those wounded areas, which can lead to a release from our bonds to our past and bring healing and wisdom. We also have a sextile between Mercury and Neptune, where our intuition will be running high. This is a good time for creativity, optimism, intuition, and hope. We just need to make sure that we stay grounded.


Wednesday brings a mix of energies from Mercury, Jupiter, the Sun, and Mars. We have an opposition between Mercury and Jupiter to start, a transit that seems to make our words come more easily…sometimes too easily. We need to be aware that right now, our judgment can be a bit off, so we need to take the time to really consider how all of these new ideas and thoughts will fit into the bigger picture. We then have a trine between the Sun and Mars, bringing us a boost of confidence and some motivation to take action. This energy can help balance out the Jupiter fogginess. Also, try not to overdo things with all of this energy. We may feel great today but will definitely feel the effects tomorrow. The Moon will go Void of Course mid-afternoon until tomorrow morning.


Thursday morning sees the Moon shift signs into balancing and social Libra, where we can enjoy the company of others. The Moon in Libra creates this feeling of harmony and calm. We find we more easily connect with people, compromise is more likely and conflict less so. It’s a time when we find it easier to understand and relate to others. The mood is that of mutual devotion, so we seek to draw out the best in others right now. Creating order is also the focus, not necessarily through tidying or organizing as was the case while the Moon was in Virgo, but rather through pleasing interactions with others and aesthetics in our environment.


Friday brings some helpful energies our way. We have a trine between Jupiter and Neptune, so pay attention to your dreams right now. This transit brings us an atmosphere of support and empathy. Under this transit, we can gain a much broader understanding of who we are. This is a time for expressing our visions artistically or employing our inner senses to make meaningful what is often not logical, freeing us from the constraints of an excessively controlled environment. We also have a trine between Mercury and Pluto, which can help us to instinctively get to the heart of things. It’s a great time for mental activities which involve research, concentration, and investigation. During this transit, it may be a good idea to write down our thoughts and ideas so that we can review them again once this transit has slipped by. The Moon will go Void of Course in the late evening.



Saturday will require some level of focus as the Moon moves into Scorpio in the mid-afternoon. Its a good time for delving into subjects that interest you on a deeper level. Keep in minds that a Scorpio Moon increases our sensitivity and emotional charge, so we need to be careful not to get swept away by irritability, mood-swings, hysteria, big and small excitements, and a sudden desire to quickly change everything. People tend to become more conscious of self and others and see everything in dark tones with the Moon in Scorpio. We also have Venus in an opposition to Saturn today. a transit that can bring feelings of loneliness and sadness as a result of delays and limitations we feel are affecting our love life and finances. It’s not a good time for socializing, so we should make preparations for some alone time. One thing you should try to do under this transit is to figure out where you may be responsible for any difficulties felt in the relationship, and perhaps work on a bit of self-development. Its a good time for work that needs preparation. Where finances are concerned, try to sort out debt, or at least get things more organized so you have an idea of where you stand. For those that are prone to depression, it may be a low couple of days for you. If you’re normally a cheerful person, it may be best to not fight the blues and let things ride themselves out. These energies will be with us through Sunday.
