MAY 21 to 31 2015
THURSDAY MAY 21, 2015
On 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 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.
MONDAY MAY 25, 2015
On Monday 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.
TUESDAY MAY 26, 2015
Tuesday is one of the most contentious days of the year when Venus squares off against Uranus and Mars is in a 90-degree square aspect with Neptune. Because both Uranus and Neptune are involved, you can be sure that unanticipated upheavals will occur in interpersonal relationships. Misunderstandings and arguments come from no where. This is the sort of day when seemingly stable relationships break up for a minor reason. And at work, you sense that people are conspiring against you. And quite possibly they are.
WEDNESDAY/THURSDAY MAY 27/28, 2015
On Wednesday and Thursday fuses are short when Retrograde Mercury aligns in conjunction with Mars in Gemini. Tongues will be razor sharp and will also be forked for telling lies. Because Mercury is Retrograde, you may find that old resentments come to the fore. You may find yourself facing nasty accusations about something you thought was long dead and buried.
FRIDAY-SUNDAY MAY 29/30/31, 2015
Avoid making any sort of contractual agreement from Friday all through the weekend when Neptune is in aspects with Mercury and the Sun which create an epidemic of misunderstandings and subterfuge. You may think you are absolutely certain about a situation or a relationship ... then suddenly discover you have been led astray. Whether intentionally or unintentionally is unimportant. The result is that you feel cheated and used.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between June 1 and 7 when we come to the SAGITTARIUS FULL MOON which we call the DENARIUS MOON because it focuses its light on treasures in your life. And because major planets are Retrograde right now, this Full Moon is the best time of the year to use ANTINOUS MOON MAGIC to open your heart to ancestral spirits, , guardians, spirit guides or past-life soul mates. They have a "treasure" of experience which they will lovingly impart to you .... More details next time ....
