monday may 23rd-
at 4:05am the sun in gemini sextiles jupiter in aries, linking the conscious self and ego and the planet of expansion, abundance and opportunity. this can be a great day for travel, learning, teaching and mind expansion! the sun in gemini LOVES TO LEARN- and jupiter provides the opportunities for more of that. have fun and try new things- break out of your familiar territory today!
at 7:52pm venus cojoins eris at 24’44 aries, aligning the Goddess of Love and Beauty with the fierce Warrior Goddess! venus/eris is fiery, dynamic and a force to be reckoned with. venus in aries is ready to take action and eris in aries is ready to expose what his hidden behind the facade. this is a time to be assertive and have agency while doing your best to avoid power/control dynamics. where do you need to take action, be a pioneer and/or an activist? make sure you do this from the heart! between today and tomorrow venus triggers the pluto/eris square- so watch out! activating energy incoming in relationships, finances, values and self worth. taking a stand for what you believe in needs to be tempered with right use of power so you are not playing the victim or the tyrant.
retrograde mercury at 29 taurus sexitles mars at 29 pisces at 8:27pm, linking the mind and intellect with the will and drive in powerful ways. they are both at the karmic completion degree- but mercury is moving backwards while mars is moving forwards. pay attention to things said and done today- by yourself and others- as there can be a completion energy present. if you have been holding back now can be the time to take a stand or make a move! make sure you are tuning into your intuition for your guidance- the ego can mislead you but true intuition will not.
tuesday may 24th-
at 2:38am vesta moves out of aquarius and into pisces, shifting the Priestess asteroid Goddess from air to water, mind to Soul, thinking to feeling and intuition. vesta in pisces is very mystical and dream. she is committed to her journey through the Unconscious and she has a very transcendent quality. the one thing to be aware of is vesta in pisces can oversacrifice herself and play the victim, the savior or the martyr. tuning into where we are transcending in order to check out is key. there is much mystical magic inherent in the transit of vesta through pisces. the key is to bring all that magic down into full embodiment!
venus in aries sextiles saturn in aquarius at 4:06am, linking the Goddess of Love and Beauty with the Lord of Karma and Father of Time. venus/saturn is great for getting serious, committed, focused and disciplined. venus in aries is usually in the moment- she wants what she wants and she wants it NOW. but saturn brings in a slow break and capacity to take one step in front of the other leading to the end goal. use Saturn’s long range vision to get clear on what to do in the now.
at 4:17pm mars moves out of pisces and into aries- shifting the will, warrior and drive from water to fire, yin to yang, omega to alpha. mars rules aries and is VERY happy being in this sign. where mars in pisces had a hard time asserting himself and taking a stand (or did it in back-handed, passive aggressive or manipulative ways)- mars in aries is anything but. our will, drive and action-oriented energy is HIGH right now. mars in aries is great for taking initiative, taking risks and making things happen. yet we do need to be aware of the shadow side of mars in aries: aggression, unskillfully expressed anger, impulsivity, reactivity and selfishness. if we act without thinking we will pay the consequences! right use of power, will, drive and anger is key. righteous anger and sacred rage can transform the world. reactive anger and violent rage can destroy it. think and act wisely. we are entering into a high energy time where impulsivity and anger can cost us- but also where action and initiative can help us make the changes we know we need to make personally and collectively.
chiron in aries semisquares vesta at 0 pisces at 5:06pm, bringing tension between the Wounded Healer planetoid and the Priestess asteroid Goddess. venus just ingress into pisces and in this last water sign she is deeply devoted to the mythic, the spiritual and the mystical. chiron is showing us what blocks our faith and trust in the Universe as well as our alignment with deeper self trust. are we surrendering too much and not asserting ourselves? or are we only asserting and trying to willfully direct our lives and not surrendering so the Universe can take the lead? chiron is showing us where the healing needs to happen to move forward and evolve. pay attention to the signs and messages!
wednesday may 25th-
at 2:49pm retrograde mercury in taurus trines retrograde pluto in capricorn, 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. this is the 2nd mercury/pluto trine due to mercury’s retrograde- so paying attention to what is linking now with the end of april when they trined for the first time while pluto stationed retrograde can be insightful!
thursday may 26th-
at 12:13am mars at 0 aries semisquares uranus in taurus, creating tension between the will, ego and drive on the world axis degree and the Rebel and Revolutionary! mars/uranus can be great for embracing change and taking immediate action but these two in tense aspect can also exacerbate reactivity, impulsivity, aggression and accidents. with uranus you usually don’t see it coming- as he is the planet of the unpredictable. having a healthy relationship to anger and rage is key otherwise it can get out of hand OR be suppressed and repressed in ways that can unhealthy. as this aspect happens in the early morning hours – pay attention to your dreams for important messages from the Unconscious!
at 4:21am ceres cojoins mean black moon lilith at 4’37 cancer, aligning the Great Mother asteroid Goddess the fierce Dark Feminine. ceres is the eternally nurturing and nourishing mother archetype- while lilith is patriarchally seen as a baby killer demon. the original lilith essence was an independent woman who did not want to be dominated or controlled by her partner but wanted to be treated an an equal. if there are imbalances happening in family, home, with parents, children, co-parents or siblings- things can come up and out in emotional ways. a lilith mother energy is fierce and ready to fight for her children and the safety of children everywhere. this can bring the mama bear energy out in all of us- but we want to have a healthy way to express it so it does not get explosive, shadowy or harmful to ourselves or others.
venus in aries squares retrograde pluto in capricorn at 11:29pm, creating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Lord of the Underworld. venus in tense aspect to pluto in capricorn brings Light to what is in the shadow in relationships, finances, government, the old guard and more. looking to see what is driving our desires and needs from behind the scenes is key. shadow energies like jealousy, possessiveness, obsession, power/control dynamics, manipulation and more can aries in relationships right now. navigate with consciousness!
friday may 27th-
at 6:09am mars parallels eris energizing their conjunction by degree coming up on june 27th! for the next month the God of War and Goddess of Discord and Chaos are in a super aspect – amplifying and exacerbating their energy together. this can be disruptive, unexpected, chaotic- but also liberating, freeing and revolutionary!!! channel your will, drive and anger consciously. mars/eris can be great for harassing personal power and will to take action, take a stand and fight back against tyranny. but it can also manifest as violence, aggression, accidents and explosions (literal, emotional and more). be aware and navigate the minefield energy with care!
saturday may 28th-
at 7:46am venus moves out of aries and into taurus, moving from mars rulership to her own rulership where she is much more comfortable! this shifts the Goddess from yang to yin, assertive to receptive, independent to interconnected and relational! the coming weeks of venus in taurus’ journey are a time to enjoy the sensual, physical world. venus in taurus oozes abundance, sensuality, softness, pleasure and connection. it’s a great time to find more stability, solidity and security both financially and in relationships. just watch out for the shadow side of venus in taurus: being too self indulgent, entitled, lazy and resistant to change.
sunday may 29th-
at 3:31am mars cojoins jupiter at 3’19 aries, linking the will and drive with the planet of expansion and excess! mars/jupiter is a powerhouse of an aspect- as mars is in his home sign of aries and jupiter amplifies the maritan/arian archetype. this can be exception for taking action, making moves, and setting things into motion. aries is the pioneer forging a path that is not there yet but that he is creating! of course the shadow of this combination is acting without thinking, conflict, arguments, being impulsive and reactive. make sure you have a handle on your anger and rage so you are not repressing it but also not acting out in it. if you tap into this sacred fire in conscious ways you can find support in starting new things that have auspicious new beginnings energy behind them! (mars contraparallels jupiter at 4:37am so a super aspect happens between these two this morning!)
have a blessed week…
