  • Posted on May 27, 2018 at 7:30 am
Happy Sunday everyone and Happy Memorial Day in the USA! This is our last week of May already and June looks like it will be a pretty easy month astrologically. It’s a fairly balanced day for us with a nice social energy, so try to get out and socialize a bit if you can. Meeting new people or hanging out with those you can have all types of conversations with is the way to go. Let’s see what this week has in store for us now.
Monday brings us an early evening Void of Course Moon that will move into Sagittarius just before midnight. The next couple of days will see an increase in our optimism, generosity and openness, as well as giving us a desire to share our experiences and advice. Its a good energy for large-scale plans but not so great for anything that requires attention to detail. 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. We may find an increase in our interests in social life and where we fit in. We also have a sextile between the Sun and the Lunar North Node, bringing a bit of feel-good energy our way. Things tend to feel that they are flowing along and opportunities may present themselves during this transit. Pay attention to people who cross your path for 2-3 days around this time, since they could offer resources, support or connections that could be helpful. Just be careful that you don’t resort to manipulation to make things happy your way. If you have to force something to work then maybe there’s a better solution.
Tuesday sees communications planet Mercury move into talkative Gemini, which will double the mental activity for the next month. Mercury is the planetary ruler of Gemini, so the mind wants to fly fast and free. Our perceptions and communications can come blowing through like a fresh breeze and this can create a variety of ideas in our heads, but not necessarily the productive application to putting those ideas in play. We can find it easier to articulate our words, collect and analyse our thoughts, and sharpen our focus.
Wednesday begins with an early morning Void of Course Moon that will then enter its Full lunation in the early afternoon. The Full Moon is still in Sagittarius and it will be a restless Full Moon that wants us to share ideas, take or teach a class, or just go somewhere fun. Sagittarius is a mutable fire sign, and this Full Moon will have an insatiable desire to explore the great unknown and learn everything that there is to know. Its a time to ask ourselves if we are truly living our lives to the fullest, and if we aren’t, this means its time to move outside of our comfort zones. Some things we can do under a Sagittarius Moon: Adventurous activities that involve “winging it”, travel, higher education, starting publishing projects, advertising, sports, physical activity. We also have a sextile between Mercury and Chiron going on today, which brings us an opportunity for thinking and reflecting on our pain, giving us the ability to talk about it. It can be a time where our spirits feel a bit more uplifted and buoyant because we feel, for once, that we can actually see that light at the end of the tunnel…and no it isn’t a train coming to run us down either!
Thursday morning sees the Moon move 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. With the Moon in Capricorn, we become aware of the need for structure and planning ahead. We also instinctively are aware of the limitations of time. We are motivated by a desire for success. Achievement and manifestation are most important to us now. We are resourceful and don’t want to waste time, energy, or resources. 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. This lunar mood puts the focus on real-world ambitions. We might spend our time mapping out a business plan. It’s timely for considering what’s a good investment of your time, energy and resources. What will bring a solid return? Everything is viewed through a practical eye, including relationships. We can see how to make structural changes that make life more efficient.
Friday is a bit of a complicated day but in a good way. We have the Moon in Capricorn, which can help us tend to any practical business. We also have two harmonious trines, one between Mercury and Mars, and the other between Venus and Jupiter. So we may feel that part of us wants to get things done and another part of us wants to just play. The best way to deal with today’s energies is to find a healthy balance between the two. Pay attention to your dreams overnight as well with Venus interacting with the planet of dreams, Neptune.
Saturday begins with an early morning Void of Course Moon, which will be with us the whole day, moving into Aquarius just before midnight. With the Moon being Void of Course all day, it makes it a good time for doing simple tasks and we should steer clear of initiating any important new actions. Mercury will be sextile the Lunar North Node today. Mercury represents our rational mind. Its the planet of everyday communication and expression. It signifies our curiosity and what areas of life we find stimulating and appealing on a mental level. The Lunar North Node symbolizes a forward motion point in our lives, what our overall lesson is. Some believe it shows us our destiny. When Mercury interacts with either of the Nodes, it promises a highlight on movement. In this case, it focuses on how we communicate and plan our destiny. If you have something you need to tell the world, now is the time to do it!
Sunday is mostly quiet in the skies but we do have the Aquarius Moon in play, which 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. We tend to have a sense of emotional coolness or detachment at the personal level, combined with an emphasis on idealism: such is the nature of the cycle we are now entering. We have a tendency to allow ourselves more freedom. There is an increased interest in knowledge, and a need to communicate with like-minded individuals. At the same time, your desire for freedom and independence is strengthened, and you will want to establish your own rules. It is a good period for reading, study and scientific pursuits. However, activities which require subordination and discipline, as well as jobs which bore you, will go from bad to worse now.
