monday may 17th-
at 2:49am the sun in taurus ALGOL trines retrograde pluto in capricorn- aligning the conscious self and ego with the planet of transformation, evolution, death and rebirth. sun/pluto is a great aspect for rebirthing and empowering ourselves. being able to get very clear on on the path we are navigating and what we need to do to get further on it is supported right now. with both bodies in earth signs, our determination and persistence in the material/physical world can pay off today! ALGOL
venus cojoins the true north node 10’47 gemini at 1:38pm (mean is tomorrow on the 18th), linking the Goddess of Love and Beauty with the node of destiny and evolution. on 5/11 we had mercury on the north node (same day as the new moon) and today we have venus doing so. the mind and heart will head into Union on 5/28- so from the new moon until the end of the month PAY ATTENTION to doors opening, meetings had, destiny calling. the mind and heart, intellect and emotion, are getting a reset and are being called forward. pay attention to where are you being called to open your heart, love yourself, love others, share information, be curious, open-minded and open-hearted today through tomorrow.
at 4:04am uranus in taurus quincunxes the mean south node in sagittarius, creating tension and friction between the Rebel and Revolutionary and the node of karma and the past. this can bring disruptive energy into the mix- shining a Light on what we did in the past (personally and collectively) and the consequence of past actions coming to be addressed today. the positive side is this can help us clear and release karma if we work the astrology wisely. from today through tomorrow the uranus/chiron semisextile activates the nodes- destiny & karma are at play. pay attention!
tuesday may 18th-
at 4:44am venus in gemini sextiles chiron in aries, linking the heart with the Wounded Healer. venus/chiron is lovely for heart healing and healing in relationship. we are being supported in sharing our hearts, feelings, wounds and pain honestly and truthfully with others. venus in gemini wants to communicate and connect- from both mind and heart! from this space intimacy can open up and deepen. communication can be healing when we make sure our mind (and what we say/how we listen) is in service to the heart. with venus linking with the north node and chiron she is triggering the chiron/northt node sextile exact later today! major healing energy incoming!!!
at 5:10am venus cojoins the mean north node 11’35 gemini (true was yesterday the 17th), linking the Goddess of Love and Beauty with the node of destiny and evolution. on 5/11 we had mercury on the north node (same day as the new moon) and today we have venus doing so. the mind and heart will head into Union on 5/28- so from the new moon until the end of the month PAY ATTENTION to doors opening, meetings had, destiny calling. the mind and heart, intellect and emotion, are getting a reset and are being called forward. pay attention to where are you being called to open your heart, love yourself, love others, share information, be curious, open-minded and open-hearted yesterday and today.
venus in gemini semisextiles uranus in taurus at 7:31am, linking the Goddess of Love and Beauty with the Rebel and Revolutionary in the sign of venus! venus and the nodes are in the middle of triggering the uranus/chiron semisextile- a long term transit that began in 2009 and completes this year of 2021 (last exact semisextile was 5/3 but it’s still separating). with venus on the north node and both linking with chiron and uranus harmoniously we have amazing opportunities for healing, awakening, freedom and expansion of awareness! yet uranus is also tensely aspecting the karmic south node- so we need to be aware of where we are stuck in old patterns and not letting go of what holds us back from growth and evolution. be open to changes of heart and changes of mind today!
at 7:43am venus in gemini sesquiquadrates retrograde pluto in capricorn, creating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Lord of the Underworld. venus is triggering the recent these aspect between pluto and the north node (exact may 15th)- which is bringing up shadow and asking us to confront what is holding us back from growth and evolution. power/control dynamics are amplified right now- come back to beginner’s mind for best results.
chiron in aries sextiles mean north node in gemini and trines the south node in gemini at 10:37am, linking the Wounded Healer planetoid with the nodes of destiny and karma. chiron is harmoniously linking to both nodes- providing a healing energy as we navigate the paths of karma (past) and dharma (future). chiron helps us open up to greater awareness and with a link to both nodes we can see the past more clearly and see how it connects with and informs the present. with this awareness and willingness to do the work to heal, make amends, deal with the past- we can then influence our trajectory into the future. until we face our past our past is surely present- yet because we will not acknowledge the past it gets pushed into the shadows and yet it influences our present life reality. healing is possible today when we can hold both the past and future in our hands and bring ourselves fully present to the only point of true power which is being in the NOW. when we in the now we are not ignoring the past or grasping at the future- we are being with both with full presence and taking action from this place of consciousness can create great and magnificent change! (personally and collectively)
“If you want to know your past lives, look at your present life circumstances.
If you want to know your future lives, look at your present life actions.”
at 4:43pm mars in cancer sesquiquadrates jupiter at the first degree of pisces, creating tension between the Will, Warrior and Drive and the planet of expansion but also excess and hubris. mars is amplifying the religious tension and self righteousness flying around the atmosphere. who is right? who is wrong? where is the middle ground? watch out for anger, rage, passive aggression and internalized anger which can manifest as depression or dis-ease. mars is triggering the approaching total lunar eclipse square jupiter exact next week so navigate with care (for more info read the lunar insight on the eclipse).
wednesday may 19th-
at 6:58pm venus in gemini trines saturn in aquarius, linking the Goddess of Love and Beauty with the Lord of Karma and Father of Reality. venus trine saturn is great for grounding, commitment, security, stability and focus. in relationships and finances we are supported in setting solid foundations and seeing what is working versus what isn’t- and further seeing what is able to be fixed and what is not. being clearly aligned with our values so we are engaging in relationships and dealing with money from a place of alignment is key! with both bodies in air signs the desire to be social can be strong but with social isolating (very saturn in aquarius if you ask me- saturn is isolating, aquarius is about. community) finding innovative ways to stay connected via the internet, calls, zoom, texting, etc… is key!
thursday may 20th-
at 12:37pm the sun moves out of taurus and into gemini- shifting the conscious self and ego from earth to air, body to mind, yin to yang. the sun in gemini is focused on communication, connection, travel and fun! gemini is the perpetual student- always wanting to learn. he is also the perpetual child- always seeing things from a fresh new perspective! the coming month is a great time to learn, travel and connect with others! just watch out for the shadow of the sun in gemini: being superficial, flighty and non committal as a means to avoid vulnerability and deep intimacy. today the sun transits the alpha star in the pleiades- alcyone- but the transit of the entire pleiades cluster spans about a week. pay attention to cosmic downloads, dreams and intuitions coming in from the 7 sisters!
friday may 21st-
at 8:03am the sun in gemini squares jupiter in pisces, creating tension and friction between the conscious self and ego and the planet of expansion and excess. this is the first personal planet trigger of jupiter in his new sign of pisces (he will be here for a short time until 7/28 when he goes back into aquarius). sun/jupiter is great for taking risks, having fun, traveling, learning and exploring! just watch out for too much expansion, excess, being larger than life and not knowing when to reign it in or set limits ;) be aware of when you might be using the mind to avoid facing feelings and dealing with emotions. the sun/jupiter transit today is triggering the Total Lunar Eclipse happening next week- with the full moon in sagittarius on the karmic south node square to ruler jupiter in pisces. we can see the manifestations of this in the israel/palestine conflict. watch out for self righteous, moralistic, war consciousness. be willing to see versions of Truth that may challenge your own.
saturday may 22nd-
mercury in gemini squares neptune in pisces at 7:43pm, creating tension between the logical mind and intellect and the planet of intuition, fantasy and illusion. at best this can be a dreamy, imaginative day full of intuition and mysticism. yet this is a tense aspect and both planets are in their rulership- so they are at odds with each other. intellect versus intuition, science versus spirituality, 3d reality versus other worlds/dimensions/realities- they all can be polarized right now. it’s impotent that we are discerning and honest under the influence of tense neptune. it’s easy to be deceived, deluded or deceptive right now. be honest and keep your eyes wide open when navigating situations today.
sunday may 23rd-
at 2:19am saturn stations retrogarde 13’31 aquarius, making the planet of mastery, karma and limitation the most powerful planet in the sky. whenever a planet is stationary it appears to be at a standstill in the sky. since ‘the slowest planet wins’ (as michael lutin says)- the stationary planet IS the slowest and it’s energies take over the cosmic frequency at that time. with saturn stationary we commence the inward/downward journey of the Lord of Karma and Father of Time. when saturn is at a stand still in the sky things can feel VERY SLOW MOVING and even perhaps stuck, stagnant, limiting and restricting. on the positive side, we can use this time to slow down and take stock of our lives- but on the shadow side we may feel less vital, lowered energy and even depressed. saturn stations retrograde in one of the signs he rules (the other is capricorn) which can amplify the saturn energy in good and not so good ways. positively this is great for discipline, focus and self-mastery. on the shadow side this can amplify limitation and delays and if we are wanting the change and revolution of aquarius this can be a time of restrictions or limitations coming in that we need to work with creatively so we don’t get mired in the stuckness. know that this, too, shall pass and be willing to use saturn as an ally as he helps you to get real, deal with reality and show up in your life in masterful, mature ways! with saturn at standstill he will be heading backwards to meet with uranus again for our 2nd saturn/uranus square on june 14th- so this transit of disruption and need to let go and embrace change is being magnified right now.
have a blessed week…
