MAY 14 to 24 2015
THURSDAY MAY 14, 2015
On Thursday Gemini Mars pumps you full of lively energy and gets a boost from ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forming powerful aspects with Mercury, Mars, Saturn, Pluto and the Sun.
FRIDAY MAY 15, 2015
On Friday the world comes to a screeching stop when Mars is in opposition to Saturn, a once-yearly occurrence which always brings things to a temporary standstill. Gemini Mars wants to press the pedal to the metal, but Sagittarius Saturn has both feet firmly on the brake. Mars is action-oriented while Saturn is slow and cautious. This configuration creates frustration on the global level as well as in your own personal life. Just be patient and it will pass.
SATURDAY/SUNDAY MAY 16/17, 2015
Friday's frustration is forgotten when we come to one of the most romantic weekends of the year 2015 as love planet Venus forms a terrific trine aspect with dreamy Neptune. Meanwhile ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD creates a party atmosphere with generous configurations to Pluto and Jupiter. This is a weekend to throw caution to the winds and say yes to romance.
MONDAY MAY 18, 2015
On Monday ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD aligns with the Sun in Taurus for the TAURUS NEW MOON the MARCUS AURELIUS MOON because he was a man of judicious might and justice, a warrior and a poet, a man whose reign was called a Golden Age. The TAURUS NEW MOON highlights Taurean qualities (determined, practical, devoted, grounded, dependable) and 2nd House themes (material security, values, self-worth). On a spiritual/higher plane, the New Moon in Taurus seeks inner peace through stability and contentment.
TUESDAY MAY 19, 2015
On Tuesday, Mercury does an about-face and goes "backwards" as seen from Earth until June 12th. This RETROGRADE MERCURY phase is a time of confusion in communications and commerce. About three times each year, Mercury the communications wizard turns into Mercury the fast-talking con man. This is the RETROGRADE MERCURY phase, and it lasts about three weeks. So RETROGRADE MERCURY will be serving up glitches and snafus in the Gemini-related areas of communications, computers, transport, travel and social media. If you are buying a new mobile phone, be sure to read the fine print about hidden costs. Planning to move into a new apartment? Check the kitchen and bathroom for tell-tale signs of mold before signing the lease. Remember over the next three weeks that MERCURY wants you to play his sly game to win — not to be a whining victim. Make him proud of the way you play his game!
WEDNESDAY/THURSDAY MAY 20/21, 2015
Overnight Wednesday/Thursday, the Sun leaves placid Taurus and enters lively Gemini. The cycle which begins for you now will be marked by a more intense focus on mental and communicative activity than you may ever have experienced before. It's a time of more involvement with other people, a time for gathering information, and a time when you're apt to be more on the go than ever. There is likely to be an emphasis on reading, writing, studying, and all forms of exchanging information with others in the years ahead - and it will all serve as a path for self-discovery and personal development.
FRIDAY MAY 22, 2015
On Friday, the Earth may shake for you when Venus moves into opposition with Pluto, something that happens only once a year. There is equally the possibility of making a profound commitment at this time, particularly in a sexual relationship. Power struggles are also possible in this phase. Venus opposition to Pluto can also literally cause the Earth to shake ... in the form of earthquakes.
SATURDAY/SUNDAY MAY 23/24, 2015
This weekend obstacles may suddenly arise out of no where when Saturn makes its annual 180-degree opposition aspect to the Sun. This is a time for about two days every year when you are forced to stop and take stock of what progress you have made so far this year and to recalibrate, readjust and possibly change your course for the rest of the year. It can also be a weekend when you literally find yourself stuck in traffic. So plan accordingly.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between May 25 and 31 when we come to the Virgo First Quarter Moon. This is the Lunar Phase we call the MOON OF MELANCHOLY ... but don't worry ... it can be your "lucky" moon ... In English-speaking countries, "Melancholy" is almost a dirty word. Puritan upbringing has conditioned us to grin and bear it, to adopt a stiff-upper-lip attitude ... Other cultures are not so uptight about acknowledging this feeling of sadness. They realize it is a necessary part of life. It is what the French call "larmoyant" — a lovely word which suggests there is great beauty in sadness ... For example, crying at the movies is very beautiful and cleansing for the soul ... it is cathartic and healthy ... Meditations and rituals on this night are best suited for identifying the source of sadness in your life. If you find the source of sadness in your life, then this Lunar Phase provides you with the energy to effect changes which will move you out of melancholy into the next lunar phase .... More details next time ....
