MAY 10th to 20th, 2012
THURSDAY May 10th 2012
On Thursday you'll find yourself walking a tightrope between logic and emotions when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is in a dreamy sextile with intuitive Neptune while, at the same time, the Capricorn Moo is in positive aspects to Mars and Pluto while squaring off against erratic Uranus. This logic/emotions tightrope can be confusing. Just remember — when in doubt, listen to your inner voice.
FRIDAY May 11th 2012
On Friday the work week ends on an electric note when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD aligns in conjunction with the STAR OF ANTINOUS in Capricorn with Mercury in near-conjunction to both. Words and ideas come to you serendipitously. Your mind and heart are in perfect harmony.
SATURDAY May 12th 2012
On Saturday a fortuitous weekend dawns with the Sun inching into alignement with Jupiter. Look forward to a weekend of adventure, pleasure and meeting new people and seeing new things.
SUNDAY May 13th 2012
Sunday promises to be one of the most fortuitous days of the year when the Sun and Jupiter make their annual rendezvous. This year they are in perfect alignment in comfort-loving Taurus. It's Mother's Day in most countries, and this planetary alignment ensures that family encounters will be surprisingly pleasant.
MONDAY May 14th 2012
On Monday the work week gets off to a promising start when ANTNOUS THE MOON GOD forms sextiles with Mercury and Pluto, both of which are in a potential-boosting trine to each other. This is one of those rare days of the year when you can stand up and speak out and let yourself be heard. Toot your own horn. This is the day when it will sound loudest.
TUESDAY May 15th 2012
On Tuesday get ready for a blast from the past when Venus does an about-face and goes Retrograde (goes "backwards" as seen from the Earth) from now until June 27th. Retrograde Venus is about re-visiting, re-working or re-vising relationships of all kinds. Because Venus is in Gemini, the emphasis is on interpersonal communications and commerce. On the business level, Retrograde Venus prompts you to go back and re-work financial, career and job relationships. On the personal level, Retrograde Venus means you can expect to hear from "old flames" and ex-partners and people you haven't heard from in years. They'll suddenly be inviting you to "Friend" them. But Retrograde Venus warns you that you can never go backwards in relationships, only forwards. Remember that the emphasis is on "re-working" and "re-viewing" — and that means you need to take a good, hard look at those old relationships and see whether they still have any promise for the future. You may find that you don't need to "Friend" just every old friend.
WEDNESDAY May 16th 2012
On Wednesday healing energies get a sudden and dramatic boost when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD aligns with impulsive Uranus while Mars forms an energy-loaded trine to Pluto. All of that forms an electric backdrop for the really big celestial event of the day — when Chiron the Healer forms a beneficent sextile to revolution-minded Pluto. Both heavenly bodies are so slow-moving that this positive aspect is rare indeed. You may have been feeling that you are trapped in feelings of guilt, remorse or pain. You feel like the scapegoat or even the victim of change and circumstances beyond your control. You feel like you're in some horrific Harry Potter scenario and are all alone in a dark and spooky forest. This is when Chiron the Centaur gallops to your rescue and carries you to safety. Chiron shows you why all of this has happened, and Chiron offers you options for moving forward — out of the darkness. Chiron and Pluto are so slow-moving that these powerful energies will last for weeks and will be reinforced once more when Chiron and Pluto sextile is exact again on September 6th.
THURSDAY May 17th 2012
On Thursday you'll want to roll up your sleeves and tackle noisome chores that you have been putting off when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms a productive sextile to Retrograde Venus and is in opposition to Saturn. Retrograde Venus is stressing the need to go back and "re-view," "re-do" and "re-work" things while Saturn makes it imperative that you stop procrastinating and get to work now.
FRIDAY May 18th 2012
On Friday the work week ends on a dreamy note when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is in a sextile to nebulous Neptune. You tend to get lost in daydreams and find it hard to focus on work. Be especially careful in drive-time Friday afternoon traffic — even if you manage to keep your eyes on the road, lots of other motorists will be daydreaming at the wheel.
SATURDAY May 19th 2012
On Saturday an energy-filled weekend gets underway when the waning Taurus Moon forms happy trines with Pluto and Mars. This is a good day for pampering yourself and splurging on yourself and doing things to make your home more beautiful.
SUNDAY May 20th 2012
Sunday is a powerfully magical day which ushers in a powerfully magical week. The big celestial show gets off to a bang when the Sun and Moon enter Gemini and align for the GEMINI NEW MOON. Meanwhile, Mercury and Jupiter are also in perfect alignment. This power lineup will affect Gemini-related communications issues for weeks to come. But that's not all! This New Moon is the first SOLAR ECLIPSE in the 21st Century to be visible over the continental United States at an hour when millions of people will be watching. This SOLAR ECLIPSE will be exact at 4:47 p.m. Pacific Time, and will be visible over the western half of the US as well as the Pacific, Japan and the eastern coast of China. It is an "Annular Eclipse," meaning the Moon creates a black disk which fits inside the orb of the sun, making the Sun appear to be a ring of fire in the sky. An Eclipse in an air sign like Gemini is believed to coincided with storms, wildfires and tornados. And because this Gemini alignment is within a few degrees of President Obama's Natal Moon, you can expect some sort of revelation concerning a certain dark secret to be made during this SOLAR ECLIPSE, and this revelation will send shock waves through the rest of the US presidential election campaign this summer and autumn.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
An exciting week lies ahead between May 21st and 27th, when Mercury aligns first with Jupiter and then squares off against Neptune before finally aligning in conjunction with the Sun. This means the week will be an optimal time for honing your dreams in preparation for making them come true. More details next time ....
