Wednesday, May 8
This continues to be an active, forceful time, with the
Mercury/Mars conjunction. It’s good for building, fixing,
consolidating – but do stay alert for accidents and conflicts. The
Uranus/Pluto square is now in orb, so the rebel instinct is getting
stronger in everyone, and nobody likes being told what to do!
Thursday, May 9
This is an intense day, as the new moon brings a solar eclipse.
Mercury is close to the sun and moon, so this is a time dedicated
to knowing and understanding everything in a deeper way.
Friday, May 10
With Venus newly in Gemini, people are a little friendlier and
more communicative. But it’s still a pretty intense time, with the
revolutionary Uranus/Pluto square getting stronger by the day.
Saturday, May 11
This is a good time to talk about basic issues, with the sun and
Mercury together in Taurus. You can work out some practical
Sunday, May 12
Everybody continues to air important subjects, as the
sun/Mercury conjunction is still strong. But with Mars close to
the south node, there could be an element of coercion.
Monday, May 13
There is a soft, dreamy atmosphere, with Venus squaring
Neptune. People are more easily hypnotized, more ambivalent
and undecided, and more easily disconnected from reality.
Tuesday, May 14
Relationships are a bit tricky, with Venus inconjunct Saturn and
squaring Neptune. It’s not easy to tell where other people are
coming from, and you may fall back on outdated assumptions.
Wednesday, May 15
It’s a low-key day, with the Venus/Saturn inconjunct dampening
people’s enthusiasms. Mercury goes into Gemini, though, and
this lightens the mood a bit.
Thursday, May 16
The Leo moon helps people get over any recent disappointments
coming from the Venus/Saturn inconjunct. Gradually, people
start connecting again.
Friday, May 17
There are some important fixed influences, and this gives
determination and backbone. But it can also mean friction, when
strong wills are at cross purposes.
Saturday, May 18
This is not the best time for communication, organization or
transportation, with Mercury square Neptune and inconjunct
Saturn. There’s a danger of getting lost or hitting frustrating
bumps in the road. Relationships are intense, exciting and
changeable, with Venus inconjunct Pluto and sextile Uranus.
Sunday, May 19
Relationships are still interesting and slightly rocky. Still, things
have calmed down from yesterday, and the Virgo moon helps you
get things in order after all the recent chaos.
Monday, May 20
This is a time of crackling mental energy – creative, innovative
but unstable. With Mercury inconjunct Pluto and sextile Uranus,
there could be some startling new information. It’s a turbulent
period, with the Uranus/Pluto square exact.
Tuesday, May 21
It’s a charged time, with the Uranus/Pluto square so strong. But
you can clear the air by listening carefully to everyone, tapping
into the balanced energy of the Libra moon and its harmonious
aspects to Mercury and Venus.
Wednesday, May 22
With all these Gemini influences, there are a lot of distractions
and a constant barrage of new information. But don't live too
much in your head. There's a whole world out there, a world
that's going through some major changes.
