monday may 13th-
mercury in taurus semisquares mars in gemini at 8:59am, creating tension between the mind and the will. this can exacerbate fiery and combative communication- particularly with the sun/jupiter quincunx later in the morning as well. navigating communication, money situations and relationships with awareness is key. finding balance between speaking up and thinking before speaking is important.
the sun in taurus quincunxes retrograde jupiter in sagittarius at 11:27am, creating tension between the ego self that wants stability and security and the planet of expansion and change that wants adventure! we can feel confident and courageous today but we want to find balance between the old and the new, stability and freedom. watch out for over indulgence!
at 8:07pm the sun in taurus trines retrograde pluto in capricorn, aligning the conscious self and ego with the planet of Transformation. throughout the month mercury, mars and venus have tensely aspects the capricorn confluence of saturn/pluto/south node- but now we have great aspects with the sun helping us to see what needs to transform in our lives (or be completely let go of) and what steady steps we must take to get there. sun/pluto is a great aspect for transformation, evolution and empowerment. like the snake shedding his skin- we can release the parts of the past that are no longer valid for our growth right now. harnessing the power of pluto financially, professionally and personally is supported today!
tuesday may 14th-
at 6:58am venus in aries sexitles mars in gemini, linking the Divine Lovers in creative and romantic ways! passion, attraction, creative self expression and more are possible right now! we are supported in communicating our desires and needs and connecting with others right now. enjoy the breezy energy today!
sun in taurus semisextiles eris in aries at 6:42pm, linking the conscious self and ego with the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. the sun has been triggering the pluto/eris square since last night- but luckily in harmonious ways. awareness of what is needing to radically change, end, transform, be faced and/or dealt with is incoming. the sun in taurus helps us see the slowly steady steps we need to take to complete the past and grow into the future. pay attention!
wednesday may 15th-

at 2:46am venus moves out of aires and into taurus, shifting the Goddess of Love and beauty from a mars ruled sign to the sign of her rulership. venus in taurus is sensual, embodied, reliable, steady and open to abundance. the Goddess enjoys pleasure and the embodied experience when in her earthy home sign!
mercury in taurus sextiles neptune in pisces at 6:20pm, linking the conscious mind and intellect with the planet of intuition and imagination. this is a great aspect for linking intuition with intellect, thoughts with feeling. it’s great for creativity, artistic expression, mysticism and more. with mercury in earthy taurus and neptune in mystical watery pisces- we are supported in linking our bodies and Souls/Spirits so that we are embodying our spirituality instead of using as it as a means to escape.
at 8:09pm mars moves out of gemini and into cancer, shifting the will and drive from air to water, intellect to emotion, yang to yin. mars is not in his best position when in cancer. normally the will and drive wants to take action NOW while mars in cancer is like the crab moving side to side versus moving heading on. mars in cancer will stand up for children, animals and those not able to stand up for themselves. shadow mars in cancer can be passive aggressive and avoidant of conflict. balance is key.
thursday may 16th-
mercury in taurus semisquares chiron in aries at 10:16am, bringing tension between the mind and intellect and the wounded Healer. old wounds and pain can arise today in communication and thinking. if we have wounding around speaking up and being heard that can be triggered right now. if on the other hand we have wounding around speaking before thinking and creating discord with our words- then that can be up today. being willing to drop our awareness deeper to see the partners playing out in communication can bring deep singiths and possibly healing.
at 4:09pm mercury in taurus trines retrograde saturn in capricorn, aligning the mind and intellect with the Lord of Karma and Father of Time. mercury/saturn is a great aspect for getting real, serious and focused. we have greater capacity to concentrate and get real. when dealing with money, work or career we have a good head on our shoulders right now!

friday may 17th-
retrograde saturn in capricorn squares vesta in aries at 7:28am and the nodes square vesta at 10:30am- forming a T square between the nodes of destiny and karma, the lord of Karma and the Priestess asteroid Goddess. saturn is on the south node (mean node exact monday may 20th- true was april 30th) bringing up some big karma and lessons to be faced and dealt with. that which is old, toxic, stagnant, stuck, patriarchal or old paradigm is up for us to address! vesta squares the nodes- bringing us pivotal points of choice on our path. we can keep on doing the same old same old and be stuck in karmic patterns- or we can be an activist and pioneer and move into new directions and GROW. reclaiming the feminine- both within in terms of emotional intimacy and self nurturance, as well as without in the form of our relationship to mothers, children, Mother Earth and the Divine Feminine- is key.
mercury parallels pluto at 12:02pm, forming an aspect between the mind and the Lord of the Underworld by declination with an aspect by degree later tonight. this makes for a Super Aspect which makes this astrology extra potent! this excellent for investigation, research, diving deep, therapy and shamanic journeys. with both bodies in earth signs we are supported in transforming
at 2:49pm mercury in taurus quincunxes retrograde jupiter in sagittarius, creating tension between the mind and intellect and the planet of expansion and excess! mercury/jupiter loves to learn, teach, travel, explore and expand! yet mercury in taurus by itself prefers the known and that which is safe and secure to the unknown and unpredictable. finding balance between stability and freedom is key right now.
venus in taurus semisquares neptune in pisces at 10:03pm, creating tension between the lower heart and Higher Heart. venus/neptune is idealistic, romantic, creative and compassionate. venus in rulership wants pleasure and abundance and neptune in rulership wants bliss and ecstasy. put the two together and it’s a recipe for romance, spiritual openings and mystical expansion- but the tense nature of the aspect can exacerbate tendencies to spiritually bypass and use romance/pleasure and even spirituality to escape.
mercury in taurus trines retrograde pluto in capricorn at 10:48pm, aligning the mind and intellect with the Lord of the Underworld. mercury/pluto is excellent for therapy, shadow work, inner work, research and investigation. we have the capacity to get to the bottom of things and see what is hidden within and without. communication can get deep- particularly anything relating to finances, career or professional standing.
saturday may 18th-
at 9:17am venus cojoins uranus at 3’58 taurus, aligning the Goddess of Love and Beauty with the Rebel, Revolutionary and Great Awakener! venus/uranus brings sudden and unexpected energy into relationships, finances, our values and more. where venus in taurus likes stability and security- uranus likes change, freedom and revolution! change is in the air! if you resist change it won’t be so much fun but if you embrace it you could get a new lease on life. there could be new people coming into your life right now- and perhaps at the same time others leaving your life or relationships endings. navigating endings and new beginnings with conscious is key.
mercury in taurus semisextiles eris in aries at 9:45am, linking the planet of communication with the Warrior Goddess. pay attention to what you hear, think and say. mercury in taurus likes stability and security but eris in aries likes the Truth even if it brings upheaval! with so many mercury aspects this week there is strong focus on communication and interconnection all week long.
the full moon at 27’38 scorpio is exact at 2:11pm PDT, marking the midway point of the current lunar cycle we are in that began with the new moon in taurus on 5/4. this full moon is opposite the sun and mercury on algol- a powerful fixed star that can bring up A LOT OF EMOTIONS. luckily the full moon is sextile pluto- showing us that we have the capacity to use the transformational energy present and really bring Light to the shadows so we can see them, work with them and move through them. if you have not already signed up for my Astrology & Your Shadow course that started on 5/15 it’s not too late to join in! for more information click here- https://divineharmony.com/astrology-and-your-shadow/
