monday may 2nd-
venus at 29 pisces semisquares uranus in taurus at 1:15am, reating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the rebel, revolutionary and Great Awakener. Sudden and unexpected shifts in relationships, finances, our values and more can arise right now. venus in pisces sees through the eyes of idealism and positivity- uranus comes in to wake us up by shaking us up. seeing our attachments- particularly to that which is toxic, stagnant or stuck in our lives is important right now. with venus at the karmic completion degree- there can be something arising that needs to be brought to completion in order to move on. tune into what is best to let go of this morning!
at 9:10am venus moves out of pisces and into aries- shifting the Goddess of Love and beauty from water to fire, omega to alpha, ending to beginning. venus is crossing the world axis- and moving into a new zodiac cycle! venus is in her detriment in the sign of aries as it’s the sign that rules her opposite (venus rules libra- opposite is aries, venus rules taurus- opposite is scorpio). venus in aries knows what she wants and goes after it! she is ready to take action based on what she values and loves! she can also be a bit too overly self focused and impulsive and aggressive. so be aware as you navigate her coming journey through aries. in the coming month she will align with both chiron and eris- bringing focus to wounding and healing, activism and taking a stand for Truth!
neptune parallels juno at 9:36am, aligning the planet of mysticism, compassion, confusion and delusion with the asteroid Goddess of partnership and marriage. the positive side of this alignment is romance, idealism and a genuine feeling of unconditional Love and compassion that drives us in our relationships. the shadow side is being completely deluded and deceived by ourselves or others when it comes to relationships or financial situations. we want to come from the heart and be giving and loving, but we don’t want to be doormats for other people’s entitlement or greed. learning how to see others clearly as they are today, not just as they used to be or possibly could be in some distant future is key right now.
at 7:50pm mars in pisces semisquares retrograde pluto in capricorn, creating tension between the lower will and Higher Will. mars/pluto is great for aligning the lower will to the Higher Will so our actions are coming from a Higher Place. yet this is a tense aspect and mars is in pisces so we can delude ourselves more easily that we are coming from a Higher Place when we are not. be aware of addictions and avoidance of emotions that run you and watch your reactions right now. before you react- pause, breathe, count to 10- and try again!
vesta in aquarius squares the mean nodes of the moon at 9:02pm, creating tension between the asteroid Goddess of devotion and focus and the nodes of destiny and karma. vesta aligns with saturn later in the week so we have an activation of the saturn/nodal T square (exact 4/21 with mean nodes) happening all week. the coming Total Lunar Eclipse will also activate this potent T-square which brings us all to a crossroads and a place where the choices we make and actions we take will either further our growth and evolution OR keep us stuck in karmic patterns of the past. with the south node in scorpio the karma is related to shadow, power/control dynamics, and intense emotions that are undigested that keep us stuck in karmic patterns that are toxic. tuning into where you are being shown what needs to be worked with and released this week and month is key!
tuesday may 3rd-
at 3:33pm jupiter in pisces sextiles pluto in capricorn, linking the planet of expansion and abundance with the Lord of the Underworld. with jupiter in mystical, magical pisces linking with the planet of depth, occult mysteries, psychology and shamanism- we have a lot of powerful energy to harness right now when it comes to spiritual opening and mystical awareness. jupiter brings Light to what is hidden and empowers us to use what we see or realize for transformation and evolution. as pluto is in capricorn we can channel these gifts into work, career, life purpose and calling. make the most of the expansive energies present right now!
the sun in taurus semisquares jupiter in pisces at 7:28pm, creating tension and friction between the conscious self and ego and the planet of expansion and excess. sun/jupiter is wonderful for feeling positive, taking chances and enjoying life! just watch out for excess, indulgence, spiritual bypassing and being so focused on the Light that you avoid seeing and dealing with the shadow ;)
wednesday may 4th-

thursday may 5th-
at 12:21am the sun cojoins uranus 14’47 taurus, aligning the conscious self and ego with the rebel, revolutionary and Great Awakener. uranus in taurus is a transit helping to wake us up to new values, to change our understanding of abundance and money and to wake up to deeper and more expansive self worth and self Love. sun/uranus can make for an exciting day- depending on how attached we are to control and having things all figured out. stay open to change and doing something new today! just watch out for being restless, impulsive and reactive. don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater! having this conjunction happen on solar beltane- the day the sun crosses into 15 taurus is significant. we have uranus itself cross into the 15th degree of taurus on may 8th. it’s a great time to read my article about the fixed cross become mutable here- https://divineharmony.com/astrology-blog/moving-from-fixed-to-mutable-the-changing-of-the-times/
mercury in gemini sextiles venus in aries at 11:01pm, sweetly aligning the mind and the heart in expansive ways. getting clear on what we think and what we feel, what we want and what we need is one thing. the next thing is to share that with others. communication in all forms- writing, speaking, journalling, etc… can be supportive right now. just make sure you share your Truth with some sweetness added to it- not everyone likes to (or is capable of) hearing it raw! finding balance between mind and heart is key.
friday may 6th-
at 8:38pm saturn in aquarius sextiles eris in aries, linking the Lord of Karma and Father of Time with the Goddess of Discord, Chaos and Activism. we have had many intense aspects to eris in the last years- uranus conjucnt eris, pluto square, Saturn square, the south node quincunx. this is a harmonious aspect that is helping us harness the power of the Goddess of Discord and Chaos for our mastery and evolution. eris does not create chaos and discord so much as she reveals it. she pulls back the curtain and shows us what was always there that we ignored or denied. saturn with eris is showing us clearly what is going on and then showing us what it means to take accountability for our part in it- personally and collectively. saturn is about mastery and integrity and eris is about revelation of shadow. this is exceptional astrology for shadow work- diving deep to face what is hidden within because until we do it gets acted out without OR it gets projected without and fatally attracted into our lives. as jung said ‘until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate’. opportunities to get underneath things are present right now. with aquarius and aries configured this can be connected to communities, group associations, friendships and other social groups that have common vision and purpose- paritcularly those that take a stand for Truth or fight for those who do not have a voice or capacity to stand up for themselves. this is the first of 3 saturn/eris squares throughout the year. pay attention to what is arising or unfolding in your life- personally and collectively- to get clear on where your path of mastery and maturity is wanting to take you deeper!
saturday may 7th-
at 2:48am the sun in taurus sextiles mars in pisces, linking the two masculine planet in harmonious ways. the sun in taurus is slow, patient, attuned to the natural world and embodied. mars in pisces is mystical, magical, intuitive and creative. the two linked together helps us channel our masculine will and drive energy into spiritual or creative pursuits – particularly helping us to bring inspiration into manifestation and find the sacred in the profane.
vesta in aquarius sextiles eris in aries at 3:06am, linking the Priestess asteroid Goddess with the Goddess of activism and revelation! vesta is visionary and wants change in aquarius- eris in aries wants us to see and own the shadow and particularly own our anger and rage and transform it into something higher. vesta/eris is great astrology to take action on our visions. when we are guided by the desire to be of service- there’s no limits to where this astrology can take us.
saturn cojoins vesta at 24’35 aquarius at 3:51pm, aligning the Lord of Karma and Father of Time with the priestess asteroid Goddess. saturn is about integrity, commitment and mastery and with vesta the asteroid of devotion, focus and integration we have a lot of potent energy to harness in terms of our purpose, calling and what we need to sublimate in terms of personal desires in order to fulfill our calling. of course saturn/vesta can also be so committed we don’t take time for pleasure and fun and we can also deny ourselves and self-sacrifice. this could be a time to really seeing what we have been devoted to and if it has lasting value. if not it’s time to let go! with both of them in aquarius we can be devoted to humanity, community, social change and collective care. as eris is linking with both saturn and vesta- we have the capacity to use our focus and devotion in activism- supporting us in taking a stand for Truth! use the energies wisely!
sunday may 8th-
uranus crosses into 15 taurus today – shifting the Rebel and Revolutionary over the mid fixed degree that is aligned with the solar gates and midpoints of the season. the 15th degree of any sign is the fullness of the sign- and 15 taurus is the fullness of spring (or fall if you are in the southern hemisphere). fixed signs endure, stick with things, see them through. they are are also resistant to change and dig their heels in and can stay stuck in old energies that need to be released. with uranus crossing over 15 taurus and activating all the mid fixed degrees associated with the solar gateways- we have BIG CHANGES coming in to thinks that are stuck, stagnant, patriarchal and old paradigm. with uranus heading to the north node end of july and the solar eclipse we just had on 4/30 conjunct uranus- THE WINDS OF CHANGE ARE BLOWING and they are picking up! can you feel it!?! the key is to orient in the direct of the winds of change so you can use the current to help bring you forward. if you fight it and are trying to go against the winds of change it will get more intense. as i said in my 2022 yearly forecast- this the Year of Change, the Year of Choice, and the Year of Uranus. the choice is not if we will change but how.
an article i wrote about this and the implications of it (along with the precession of the royal fixed cross) can be found here- https://divineharmony.com/astrology-blog/moving-from-fixed-to-mutable-the-changing-of-the-times/
