Monday May 13th the waxing Virgo Moon is running a tight ship, details and routine are the focus of the day. The Sun will make contact with Jupiter in a not so pleasant way today and with Pluto in a pleasant way. We feel powerful while working toward our goals and are assured things won’t grow too quickly.
These energies of Monday will also run into Tuesday May 14th with the Moon continuing to make some very practical and grounded connections.
Early morning we also have Venus and Mars in a sextile aspect; this is so wonderful and easy, as long as you like taking action and being assertive. When the Moon enters Libra in the afternoon where it will remain for the coming 2 days there is shift toward fairness and focusing on finding our balance if we are out of balance, not everyone will be.
Wednesday May 15th the big news for today is Venus enters Taurus early in the day and Mars enters Cancer late in the evening. Venus in her own sign for the next 3 weeks feels wonderful and grounded. We may actually take our time doing things and become much more present.
With Mars in Cancer as of 11:09 pm ET, where he will remain for the coming 7 weeks, we have an opportunity to really look at how we feel. The fire of Mars in this water sign will amplify our emotions and we will not be able to hide much about how we are feeling. Just think of it like this, Fire to Water creates many things, heat and steam which great for cooking but if the fire gets too hot the lid can pop and things boil over. Over the coming weeks it would wise to check in with yourself once and a while and make sure you are processing all your emotions. Not a good time to be holding back because things will boil over if you do.
Thursday May 16th during the morning our focus is still on keeping and finding our balance. Keep in mind we are coming up to the Full Moon soon so all emotions are rising in intensity. At 5:26 pm ET the Moon enters Scorpio. Always a time of intense emotions and during the evening the Moon will be opposite Venus and Uranus which may heighten any unsettled feelings or conflict around what we want and what others need from us.
Friday May 17th the Moon is still building toward being full with little else happening in the sky, so expect Thursday’s energy to continue on through Friday.
Saturday May 18th is the Full Moon in Scorpio it happens at 5:11 pm ET. Outside of Eclipses and Super Moons the Full Moon in Scorpio can be the most intense. Emotions run deeper than normal when the Moon is in this sign and now is no exception. With Venus and Uranus in a conjunction today too, our need to stay connected to our partner, but also the need to feel free and independent are both strong. The Full Moon in Scorpio will intensify these opposing feelings.
How do we handle this? Some of the details will depend on what house this Full Moon and Venus and Uranus are in your chart. The overall view as I see it; 1st be kind to those you love, then take time to recognize where you are stable and steady (Taurus). When we get overly emotional sometimes we forget what we have that is good and solid. Then we have to let Uranus have his way, he is here to break down or initiate a change where things have become stale or where there is no growth. Some people create this by breaking away and seeking freedom but it doesn’t have to be that way. Sometimes we all have to get to a breaking point before we make a change and the transits of today with the emotionally intense Full Moon is setting us up for this if that is what you need.
The better thing would be to choose to make things happen, take some steps in the direction you want to go in regards to whatever is most important to you. Whether spouse, friendship, business partnership or whatever is on your mind, there should be no standing still this weekend, stay out of fear and go for it!
By Sunday the Moon will have shifted in Sagittarius which will feel much lighter and easier on us to take forward steps.
