We are experiencing a wonderful astrological portrait right now. The planet Venus (Love) is exalted and moving Direct in her happiest place – Pisces. On top of that it’s Beltane, the high point of Spring! We are still in the orb of the New Moon Eclipse in Taurus yesterday (the sign of Love, commitment and Spring), and there were several lovely conjunctions between the most romantic benefics in the sky – Jupiter, Venus and Neptune. It’s a great week to make progress in Art, Love, design, pleasure, and appreciation of beauty.
Venus enters Aries tomorrow, which signals her fresh new cycle around the Sun. There’s a feeling of rebirth in the air. Then the Sun meets up with Uranus at 14 Taurus on Thursday. This is the last week before Mercury turns retrograde on May 10th, so if you have any important actions to take – now is the time. The Moon is waxing, and for these two weeks we are between two eclipses. It’s a powerful time for change and new beginnings.
The Sun in Taurus brings our attention to our resources – on EARNED prosperity. It’s the sign of sensuality, luxury, indulgence, and places where you feel at home. Mars currently in Pisces directs us towards our intuition, and Pluto, stationary retrograde, asks us to review and release anything that stands in the way of our personal evolution.
Monday, May 2nd: Moon in Gemini, and Venus enters Aries in the morning. Women will feel assertive, focused and empowered for the next couple of months. Lots of discussion today about whatever happened over the weekend. Declare your commitment to what you want to manifest.
Tuesday, May 3rd: Moon in Gemini. If you have any unresolved discussions, today is the day to clear things up. Jupiter sextiles Pluto in the afternoon, expanding the trials we are currently facing. Don’t despair – the answers appear when you look at the big picture.
Wednesday, May 4th: Moon in Gemini goes void at 1:37pm, then enters Cancer at 4:05pm Pacific. When the Moon is void-of-course, avoid risks and focus on what’s in front of you. The Moon conjuncts Lilith at 0 Cancer, which brings even more confidence to women. Mars sextiles Uranus too, which can clear the air in relationships, but also cause energy fluctuations. Listen to your inner voice.
Thursday, May 5th: Moon in Cancer. Take time out to nurture yourself! With the sensitive Cancer Moon, choose your words wisely and respect peoples’ boundaries. Sun conjunct Uranus today at 14 Taurus. This aspect inspires us express our genius and change paths if needed. Liberate yourself, break free and release outworn patterns. Expect disruptions and revelations.
Friday, May 6th: Indulgent Moon in Cancer. Home projects continue. Moon trine Neptune in the evening brings a desire to escape into movies or video games, but books are better for your brain.
Saturday, May 7th: Moon in Leo trines Venus newly in Aries. Women in particular can bring the information and healing you need to move past inner obstacles. The Moon and Venus are meeting at 1 degree Leo/Aries, which means anything in your chart around 1 degree is getting activated this weekend.
Sunday, May 8th: Moon in Leo makes us expressive, playful and creative! Have fun today!
