for the weekend—roadblocks and resources—may 15th – 17th

Today, Gemini Mars opposes Sagittarius Saturn Rx—the atmosphere will be intellectually nervous with obstacle after obstacle popping up to stand in our way.

None of our attempts at action will go according to plan—best rethink the master scheme a bit or simply wait for better days.

Good thing it’s Friday, huh?  (Unless, of course, if it’s not your Friday.)

While Mars and Saturn go at it, the waning Aries Moon gets bolstered from a sextile with flighty Mercury and a trine from enthusiastic Jupiter but later she is slammed with a square from intense Pluto and a conjunction to erratic Uranus.

The day will feel like a nip of gin—burns but somehow warms, upturns but somehow steadies, calms but somehow excites—ALL AT ONCE!!!

Tomorrow is much better, for Cancer Venus trines Pisces Neptune—a lovely Water balm to ease frustration!

Although we will still be contending with the thwarted effects of the day before, it won’t matter that much since the vibe will seem so smoothly EMOTIONALLY transcendent.

And Sunday sees Luna in Taurus trudging along her way to the New Moon shortly after midnight Monday.

She sextiles both Neptune and Chiron and squares Jupiter—bringing a healing/spiritual dynamic to the Lunation as well as, unfortunately, a feeling of enough is NEVER enough.

I will dig deeper into that in an upcoming post.

Alright.

week ahead—recuperation and levity—may 4th – 7th

Since last night’s Full Moon, the sultry Scorpio Moon has rolled on to sextile Cappy Pluto, trine Pisces Chiron and WB2_0022_She-was-the-Queen-of-them-alloppose Taurus Mars, thus continuing the theme of yesterday’s Beltane—uncover the damage then set about repairing it.

Later tonight, Luna will then go Void of Course and remain so until Tuesday morning, when she crosses into Sagittarius and immediately conjuncts Saturn Rx while opposing Gemini Mercury.

We spend the day reconciling what our hearts want vs. what our minds reassure us we really need. With Saturn in the mix, our minds will probably carry the day, but Sagittarius is so enthusiastic and spirited we won’t be butt-hurt about it for long.

Wednesday is the busiest of the week, where the Taurus Sun trines Capricorn Pluto Rx—again reminiscent of the Full Moon vibe, only with tons of solid Earth energy to maintain a proper cadence. For the day, our waning Fire Moon lets off steam with squares to Pisces Neptune then Chiron, as well as gets a chipper boost from Leo Jupiter and Aries Uranus.

There will be little that could pull us down, our spirits will be absolutely irrepressible!

Then on Thursday, the Moon opposes Gemini Venus at the anaretic 29°. Emotions will be excessive, but Luna’s ultimate pass into Capricorn will certainly put the kibosh on the dramatics. This is the final aspect lovely Venus makes before she enters Cancer that evening. More later.

Alright, as we recuperate from the Full Flower Moon, a jolly Sadge Moon isn’t too shabbby a cohort to let the waning waters find stable level again. Not bad at all.

Enjoy your week.

and for the weekend—social and on the rise—may 1st – 3rd

Well, super late last night Mercury moved into Gemini.

Herbert-James-Draper-The-Vintage-MornOur minds are a flit and a flutter with strong mental awareness. All the better to accompany the Moon in her current journey through Libra—another extra social, extra intellectual Air sign.

Mars nor the Sun are activated for the weekend, so it will most likely be a lazy couple spent reading and chatting—lounging about with our brains doing the heavy lifting.

And it is within the next few days the tough and menacing Pluto/Uranus square will officially break apart. We can all sigh a sigh of collective relief. Sure, residuals will linger but the worst is OVER!!!!

The good times continue to roll as Luna sextiles Leo Jupiter and trines Gemini Venusbenefics that make for the best of party partners—after zapping the North Node. Our timing is impeccable and we can’t help but keep a jolly smirk across our faces as we skip through the weekend.

Even Mercury opposing Sagittarius Saturn on Sunday won’t hinder us too badly, for the passionate and wise Scorpio Moon will trine Pisces Neptune easing the depressive ruminations Father Time throws our way.

So, our task is to enjoy the stimulating conversations the sky’s bevy of cerebral Air will grant us and revel in the amped energies of the waxing Moon—should be quite a nice start to May.

Happy May Day!!!

for the weekend—the lion, the lady and the bull—april 24th – 26th

As we finish our week, we patiently hold tight to big-hearted emotions (Leo Moon trine Sagittarus Saturn) only to see them venus-between-terminal-gods-1895-explode by Sunday.

It may prove a nice occurrence—the ability to get good and clear on what our needs are, then pitch them back to the world in over-the-top dramatic flare (Leo Moon conjunct Leo Jupiter).

Constrict to ultimately expand. Emotional exhale—big time!!

We get shown exactly how long one can cling to a dying reality (Gemini Venus inconjunct Capricorn PlutoRx), if even only in the mind. How the stubborn powers-that-be rule supreme (Taurus Sun quincunx Sagittarius Saturn) and demand we acknowledge their authority.

Thus culminating in a mini-revolt, if you will, against the truths of our personal worlds vs. the truths of the greater humanity. We will search our every thinking moment on how to better the situation (Taurus Mecury sextile Pisces Chiron)—how to make it somehow work in the day-to-day.

Only to be born anew into individuality and fire (Gemini Venus sextile Aries Uranus)—evolving.

Have fun out there!

weekend augury—giving or getting?—april 17th – 19th

Alright.

crane-walter-the-horses-of-neptune.-mythological-fine-art-print-poster.-sizes-a4-a3-a2-a1-00237-9904-pLate last night, Capricorn Pluto began retrograde motion at 15°, while today sees a fixed square between Taurus Mars and Leo Jupiter.

If things have been going to your liking as of late, all this is gonna solidify the will to keep on keepin’ on. But if you’ve been frustrated with your daily energy levels and general productivity, suffering one roadblock after another—this is gonna make you want to beat your head against the pavement.

The waning Moon is currently moving through the initial degrees of Cardinal Aries soon to conjunct Uranus and square Pluto—further intensifying the above.

If it’s good, it’s gonna be real good. Hell, yeah!!!   If it’s bad—I am truly sorry.

But hold tight—there’s hope!

Saturday, at around 3PM EST, Luna will meet up with Sol for the Aries New Moon at 28°. I’ll dig deeper into this in a later post.

Let’s just say, if you are in the kickin’ ass group, this Fire lunation will continue to fuel the way. But if you are on the ass kicked end—a blessed new beginning is certainly possible.

Regardless, on Sunday, as the Moon slips into her Taurus comfort zone, Gemini Venus squares, and Taurus Mercury sextiles, Pisces Neptune.

I always like to see the God of the Illusion engaged on a Sunday. No matter what your work schedule looks like, I find Sunday’s to be the one day EVERYONE can use a break and dear Neptune certainly can deliver.

There will be a lazy haze shrouding the day.

Like a cool breeze (Gemini) drifting (Mutable) across a tranquil lake (Pisces) intent on whispering (Mercury) sweet nothings (Neptune) lovingly (Venus) to the statuesque pines (Taurus) ashore.

week ahead—buoyant recovery after the eclipse—april 6th – 9th

Ok, for our lovely Spring week ahead there is quite a bit of Jupterian activity to help us bounce back from the intense Eclipse/Full Moon over the past weekend.

edward-burne-jones-45-the-pilgrim-at-the-gate-of-idlenessThe waning Moon is now sailing through Scorpio, zinging Neptune and Pluto, and will end up in Sagittarius by week’s end—paying visit to Saturn, Jupiter and Uranus. Intensity of emotion and looming questions of ‘why?’ spice the atmosphere all week.

Pisces Chiron has moved out of tight sextile with Capricorn Pluto leaving us to experience the full strength of the Uranus/Pluto square at 15°/16°.  This points to an edgier demonstration of the revolution/evolution bite of the two. Sadly, gentle compassion during this tumultuous time will be harder to access.

The Aries Sun and Mercury exact their conjunctions with Uranus during the week, while Taurus Mars inconjuncts Sagittarius Saturn Rx in their first I/O/Q meeting. There are brilliantly brave ideas burning their way into reality nowadays and, if recognized, then given the proper structure, can take hold into something riotously vital.

Our minds not only get electrified by the genius of Uranus, but also smash into Pluto, God of the Underworld. The trick is to guard against unfounded suspicion and cynicism. These will only get in the way.

Instead, demand to see the positive in the most dire of situations, which will be aided my Mercury trining Leo Jupiter Rx for the King of Planet’s last interaction with a celestial body (other than the Moon) before turning direct on Wednesday. He revisits 12° – 22°—if you have points or planets here you get an extra boost to the joy and good fortune!!

The multitude of Spring Aries Fire combined with Jupiter’s about face signals a collective shift from contently navel gazing to a more pronounced need to interact with the outside world—conquer and leave your mark!

Ample, encouraging energy is available to bolster the work of Venus and Mars in Fixed Earth, while they labor to shore up the projects of Cardinal Fire.

Again, the Universe provides the building blocks for success.

me or we?—libra’s total lunar eclipse—april 4th

In less than 12 hours we have the Libra/Aries Full Moon at 14º.

the-platonic-lament-1894-Not only is it a Full Moon but, in answer to the Equinox/New Moon two weeks ago, also the day of an Eclipse—a Total Lunar this time ’round—rare and bloody.

And on an even larger scale, tomorrow’s lunation speaks to events we were managing this time last Spring and Fall—full circle and/or full steam ahead.

There are many factors in play with this one, most notably: Sun conjunct Uranus, Mercury conjunct South Node, Jupiter trine Sun and last but not least, Sun & Moon square Pluto—t-square!

If you are the possessor of planets or points between 10º-17º of the Cardinal signs (and the Fire or Fixed signs, too) then this could potentially be a big event for you, with 14º-15º Cancer a dumping ground for a majority of the energies here—yikes, if you are the lucky one!

For the collective—lots of Fire, tons of Cardinal. Passion and initiative.

Those intentions set during the middle of March are coming to a head or gaining momentum depending on the necessary timeframe.

This Full Moon is on the Aries/Libra axis and is an Eclipse, therefore the Moon’s Nodes are conjunct the event (nodes = our past that greatly affects our future). So, it is very much a dynamic of “space or intimacy”—“mine or yours”—“me or we”—“individuality or co-operation”—or better yet, a lovely balance somewhere in between!

Yes, the past weighs heavily, but Pluto is engaged to force an evolution. Hard, painful, gut wrenching teardown then an Uranian-fueled forward thrust—if one is needed. Maybe it works out the attachment is rock solid and tomorrow’s Eclipse merely fans the fires of pleasure.

Well either way, by Summer’s end, we’ll get to partake these delights for a fourth parlay.

As always, look to the houses brought to the fore for precisely how this manifests personally for you.

Happy Blood Moon, everyone!
