We begin this week with a New Moon at 10 Gemini on Monday! Watch for the dawn, and a beautiful sunrise. Every New Moon is a new beginning, and this one brings a change in attitude. The urge to get out and socialize will be strong, but a square with Saturn asks us to keep our boundaries and practice self discipline too. This New Moon is great for activities requiring mental fortitude – studying, analysis, meditation and organization are all highlighted this week. Focus on simplifying your life.
Mercury has stopped still in the skies, preparing to go Direct on Friday, while Saturn has also stopped still, preparing to go retrograde on Saturday. They are also in a square for the next two weeks. At the same time, Retrograde Mercury is trining Pluto, so there’s a serious and transformational vibe. There could be struggles, tests, limitations, and issues with timing, especially around communication. Be thoughtful and speak sincerely.
Pluto will move into Aquarius on March 23, 2023, so this is the last year of Pluto in Capricorn! It will go back into Capricorn until Nov 19, 2024 when it will spend over a decade in Aquarius. My hope is that the themes of Aquarius – humanity, liberation, genius and forward thinking – will make a positive change with the problems in our society.
Monday, May 30th: New Moon at 10 Gemini in the pre dawn hours brings new options into our live. We are drawn to sociability, sharing and TALKING, however Mercury, Gemini’s ruler, is currently retrograde. We are redoing things, renegotiating agreements. The truth could come out today.
Tuesday, May 31st: Moon in Gemini goes void-of-course at 1:10pm Pacific for the rest of the day, so do important stuff in the morning. Moon trines Saturn in the evening which can bring heavy conversations. We have no problem working hard on projects that require mental effort.
Wednesday, June 1st: Moon in Cancer conjuncts Black Moon Lilith, so solitude is favored. Take time out today and focus on nurturing yourself. Your needs come first.
Thursday, June 2nd: Moon in Cancer on a Thursday is auspicious! There are no other aspects, and it’s a quiet day with the lovely Cancerian energy. Home life and domestic activities are the best use of this Moon, and with Mercury and Saturn stationing, organization gets a boost.
Friday, June 3rd: Moon Cancer moves into Leo at 11:38am, and everyone wants the limelight. Give yourself some love. When the Moon moves from Cancer to Leo, egos can be VERY sensitive, so step carefully around people’s feelings today. Mercury goes Direct at 26 Taurus early in the morning, but will take several days to pick up speed. Living in the present, in a mindful way, is the best way forward.
Saturday, June 4th: Moon in Leo opposes Saturn, and emotions might get heavy. Saturn turns stationary retrograde in the middle of the night. Things can appear unstable, but don’t worry just take action on what you have control over. We are going back over ground we’ve already covered, so it’s an opportunity to recheck your foundation and steps.
Sunday, June 5th: Moon in Leo goes void at 4:12pm Pacific, and opposes Saturn in the evening. This can exacerbate the issues of this week. No other aspects. It’s a great evening to see performances, attend parties or art gatherings.
