monday may 6th-
at 9:39am mars in gemini sextiles eris in aries, linking the Warrior God with the Warrior Goddess. in roman mythology mars and eris are brother and sister- and they both are connected to war. this is a harmonious aspect and between yesterday and today mars has been triggering the jupiter/eris trine. opportunities to speak up, express Truth, take action, be an activist and/or a pioneer are strong right now! the key is to make sure you navigate communication with a lot of of consciousness as mars also just made very intense aspects to saturn, pluto and the karmic south node. if you tend to hold yourself back- this isa time to take action and make things happen. if you tend to be assertive but also aggressive and self focused this is a time to find balanced awareness around your will, ego and drive.
mercury moves out of aries and into taurus at 11:25am, shifting the conscious mind and intellect from fire to earth, yang to yin, mars ruled to venus ruled. mercury in taurus is earthy, stable, secure and grounded. we are supported in communicating in steady ways- not being fiery, dramatic and impulsive with words or deeds. just watch out for the shadow of mercury in taurus- rigid thinking and beliefs and resistance to change.

at 6:26am venus in aries squares retrograde saturn in capricorn, creating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Lord of Karma and Father of Time. venus is in mars’ sign and she is firey, dynamic and assertive! yet saturn is putting the breaks on what she wants, needs and desires. this is not a time to be impulsive and restless but instead be masterful and disciplined. heavy energies can arise in Love and money situations with a need to deal with reality as it is. sobering situations in finances or relationship ask us to show up to do the work.
venus in aries squares the nodes at 1:52pm, bringing a pivotal point of choice in Love and money situations. when planets square the nodes we are at a crossroads- will we keep doing the same old karmic past or will we move into new territory and grow? this is a time to tune into what is old, toxic, stagnant, stuck or karmic and deal with it once and for all- so we can move forward and onward in life! venus is triggering the saturn/south node conjunction- exact on 4/30 with true node and incoming 5/20 with the mean node. this is some very big astrology that will be with us until september as saturn will be on the south node a total of 3 times. the shit is getting real. the karma is showing itself for what it is. this is a time to face what is, deal with the past and be accountable and integrity. it’s HUGE. so navigate with a lot of consciousness for best results- and for closing out old karmic chapters completely so you can move on and start growing into new territory!
wednesday may 8th-
mercury in taurus semisquares neptune in pisces at 4:41am, creating tension between the linear logical mind and the planet of intuition and otherworldly energy. mercury/neptune can be dreamy, romantic, creative, psychic and magical. yet the minor tense aspect can also exacerbate tendencies to spiritually bypass, have magical thinking and ignore reality. mercury is trigger the uranus/neptune semi square that is happening this year and next year. we want to keep our minds open but we also want to do some honest check ins about where we are idealizing, fantasizing, projecting and/or burying our heads in the sand.
at 7:22am mercury cojoins uranus at 3’25 taurus, aligning the lower mind with the Higher Mind in powerful ways! typically taurus likes stability, security and the known- yet uranus is all about change, upheaval and unexpected things come to Light. this is a great time to keep your mind open and to challenge what you think you know! insights, aha moments, bolt out of the blue awareness are all possible right now!

mercury in taurus semisextiles chiron in aries at 8:12pm, linking the mind and intellect with the Wounded Healer. mercury/chiron is great for therapy and deep talks with friends or those we love. we can share our honest feelings and thoughts and listen whole heartedly to the sharing of others. old wounds and pain that arise in communication today need to be navigated with consciousness and awareness. be aware of what runs you from behind the scenes and work with what you realize for immense growth.

venus in aries trines retrograde jupiter in sagittarius at 9:56am, linking the two Benefics planets in positive ways! both venus and jupiter are interested in expansion and positivity- and put them together and we can have extra support for social situations, creativity, pursuit of our desires and more. yet venus is also squaring pluto today- so not all is harmonious in love and money situations so navigate with care.
at 10:20am venus in aries squares retrograde pluto in capricorn, creating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Lord of the Underworld. venus is in the midst of triggering the entire capricorn confluence- bringing Light to what is in the shadow in relationships, finances and more. venus in aries is ready to go after what she wants but pluto comes in and can bring confrontation with the shadow. 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!

the sun in taurus semisquares chiron in aries at 3:31am, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the Wounded Healer planetoid. sun/chiron can bring up old wounds and pain around identity, sense of self, self esteem, a parent figure (likely father) and more. chiron in aries is teaching us right relationship to the masculine and to will, fire, anger, aggression, agency and self focus. some of us are overly self focused (narcissistic) others of us sacrifice ourselves and need to become more healthfully selfish. whatever arises today is the Universe giving you hints about what wounds are blocking you. pay attention.
mercury in taurus sesquiquadrates retrograde jupiter in sagittarius at 3:56pm, creating tension between the mind and intellect and the planet of expansion and excess. our desire to speak, talk, learn, teach and be on the move is strong right now! this is great for communicating but it can get excessive. of course mercury is in earth taurus so maybe we need jupiter’s fire to get us going. of course balance is key. think before you speak and act so that your words and actions are coming from a place of mastery.
saturday may 11th-
at 2:19am the sun in taurus trines retrograde saturn in capricorn, aligning the conscious self and ego with the Lord of Karma and Father of Time. so far this month mercury, mars and venus- 3 of the 5 personal planets- have made intense aspects with saturn and the whole Capricorn Confluence (saturn/pluto/south node). luckily the sun and the recent new moon have harmoniously linked with saturn- as they are both helping us to see what we CAN do in order to transform or evolve some key area of life. the key with taurus is to focus on the practical, material, financial and 3d world realities of life. this is not a time to be ungroundedly dreaming. it’s a time to walk the talk and embody what we teach or profess to believe in. sun/saturn helps us to get grounded, masterful and disciplined- particularly in work situations or financial situations. we have the capacity to build something long lasting- the key is to have patience, endurance and the capacity to work for something which the rewards are not in the moment but come to use in the future.
the sun in taurus sextiles the north node in cancer and trines the south node at 8:10am, illuminating our past and future and the point at which we are right now in between the two. the sun sheds light on what of the past is no longer valid, healthy or supportive- but the sun also illuminates what from the past is useful and able to come with us into the future. sun/north node shines a Light on the path ahead- and with taurus and cancer configured part of what is asked of us is to get more in touch with/integrated with our feminine and emotions (we all have both- regardless of our biological sex). pay attention to where you are being asked to grow and what you are being asked to let go of today!
sunday may 12th-
happy mothers day for those who celebrate (those in the USA).
mercury in taurus and juno in cancer both quincunx retrograde ceres in sagittarius (2:33am and 11:03am respectively), forming a yod between the mind and intellect, the asteroid Goddess of partnership and marriage and the Great Mother asteroid Goddess. a yod is a finger of God (or Goddess) and the finger is pointing at ceres- the Great Mother, on Mother’s day! ceres in sadge nurtures and wants to be nurtured by being given freedom to roam, travel, teach, learn and explore. taurus and cancer are very different- they need safety, security, connection and stability. we want to find balance between freedom and togetherness, other focus and self focus, the past and the future. today is a day to tune into where this balance is for you and where imbalances may be- and what you are ready to do about them!
neptune in pisces semisextiles vesta in aries at 9:07pm, linking the planet of altruism, compassion and mysticism with the Priestess asteroid Goddess. pisces and vesta have common ground- they are both willing to sacrifice themselves for something Higher. vesta is in fiery aries though- and aries is focused on the self. this is good as too much sacrifice of the self can be very unhealthy. if we use aries direction and clear boundaries we can commit to altruistic goals and visions without sacrificing our well being and agency. neptune in pisces with vesta in aries is the Spiritual Warrioress. one who is not just psychically, intuitively and mystically open- but one who can be in the world, not fully of it, and take action from a place of power and passion. access these frequencies today!
have a blessed week…
