Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: May 13, 2019, through May 19, 2019
“The more one is consciously in touch with one’s own life, the more astrology offers- not sensational surprises or a way of manipulating fate- But rather a means of clarifying the stages of self-development which we should welcome and use as opportunities for personal transformation. – Stephen Arroyo
BUILDING AND EMPOWERMENT
Monday, May 13, 2019:
With the Moon in Virgo, you will likely begin the week on a ‘neat & tidy’ note. If you are in sync with the universe you may have spent time yesterday perfecting personal systems and preparing for an easy start to the week. This serves you well and allows for early in the week practical accomplishments.
A dynamic trine aspect is formed from the Sun to Pluto before bedtime, impacting today and tomorrow with robust and potent energies. Whatever began in early January is now paying dividends. If you are have been working to build something solid and tangible you can make a great deal of progress now. You don’t need to work super hard, simply give that project attention and you will be surprised at the results.
Do you long to become the very best version of yourself? Astrology is a powerful tool for self-understanding and growth. Are you ready to understand yourself through the study of astrology?

ROMANCE AND BEAUTY
Tuesday, May 14, 2019:
Venus sextile Mars at 9:58 AM EDT offers a lovely day of self-confidence and creativity. This is a great time for increasing and developing a romantic connection and more casual socializing as well. You may feel playful and charming, and experience other people in that light as well. If your work involves self-promotion and creativity this is an awesome time to push forward that aspect of your efforts. With family and friends, you will notice more tolerance, everyone seems to have a warmer and softer edge to their disposition.
At 2:51 PM EDT the Moon enters Libra further encouraging graceful charming social connections. I don’t’ often recommend shopping but if you have Spring wardrobe purchases that must be made, today or tomorrow would be great for that.
Enjoy beautiful things, dinner out with a loved one, romance, charm and social connections.
The Virgo Moon is void-of-course from 1:19 PM EDT until she enters Libra at 2:51 PM EDT. This condition merely suggests that whatever is begun or occurs during this time will not have a significant future impact.
START SPRING CLEANING / PLANT A GARDEN
Wednesday, May 15, 2019:
As the Moon moves through Libra you find yourself focused on issues of balance and fairness in your family and social interactions. You are able to see both sides of any controversy creating difficulty if you have serious decisions to make. When you see a situation from all perspectives it is challenging to take a clear decisive move forward.
However, there are important and significant changes at hand today. At 5:45 AM EDT Venus, the planet of relationship, beauty, and pleasure enters Taurus after spending the past three and a half weeks deeply uncomfortable while traveling through Aries. Venus rules Taurus therefore during the next three and a half weeks she is in her happy place. While Venus is in Taurus you find that your tolerance, kindness, and romance quotient is on the increase. While in Taurus Venus supports sensuality, comfort, pleasure, and beauty in relationships. This is a time to express your love in tangible ways. Give gifts, a massage, and plant a garden together. Using Whole Sign House System, consider how you can bring diplomacy, beauty, and love to the House that holds Taurus in your natal chart.
At 11:09 PM EDT Mars leaves restless Gemini behind to enter Cancer. As delighted as Venus is to be in Taurus, Mars is equally unhappy to be in Cancer. Mars wants to push forward with assertiveness and heat, but that very heat is suppressed in Cancer and can be come forth as sulking and passive-aggressive tendencies. Hurt feelings can easily erupt if you try to repress them for too long. That is the concern while Mars is in Cancer. While in Cancer you may try to hide your discontents and end up tripping yourself up in the process. Mars will remain in Cancer until July 1st. Pay attention to emotional reactions particularly within a family context. A great use for this energy is on home repairs or renovations. Even a deep Spring cleaning will help focus and move the energies in a healthy fashion.

TRUST EVENING CONVERSATIONS
Thursday, May 16, 2019:
You will have plenty of adjusting to do as harmonious Venus settles happily into sensual Taurus and assertive Mars tries to understand how he can possibly get anything done in moody Cancer. Give yourself and others some slack as this may simply feel like an awkward day. The Moon in also void-of-course for the bulk of the day which may leave you feeling that you are spinning your wheels without anything to show for it.
At 5:25 PM EDT when the Moon enters Scorpio you want to stop that spinning and get to the bottom of the discomfort. Be careful not to turn on others with suspicion and blame. Go ahead and ask deep probing questions, approach the situation with kindness, trust what you hear and look for the more positive manifestation of dynamics between yourself and others. With a trine aspect between Mercury and Saturn at 7:08 PM EDT you can have confidence in the stabilizing effect of conversations that arise this evening.
The Libra Moon is void-of-course from 5:38 AM EDT until she enters Scorpio at 5:25 PM EDT. This condition merely suggests that whatever is begun or occurs during this time will not have a significant future impact.
Friday, May 17, 2019:
As the Moon passes through Scorpio she is quiet but not void-of-course, allowing accomplishment without distraction. You may find yourself naturally inclined to explore powerful emotional depths at this time while not shying away from the darker corners of your individual phycological makeup. You are able to understand deep human sentiments and how folks get caught up in power dynamics that often seem unimaginable, work on compassion toward others.
Scorpio energies go into compelling depths and focus on hidden emotions that most of us, most of the time, prefer to avoid. When the Moon is in Scorpio, we are able to feel deeply, observe our hidden emotional motivations, and see what is not obvious in ourselves and others. Scorpio gets a bad rap as it is a sign that has a profound need to go deep and explore the inner dark corners of the psyche. Go ahead and trust yourself to look inward with compassion and kindness.
I know it is Friday night but the weekend will be more successful if you spend time with one close loving partner. If you are alone, spend time writing in your journal with deep loving honesty.
“Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.” ~ Og Mandino
CHANGE AND REVELATIONS
Saturday, May 18, 2019:
At 12:16 PM EDT Venus, the planet of love, joins with Uranus the planet of defiance and excitement. This can be a game changer regarding love or money. You may receive unexpected news and sudden changes. If you have been enduring a relationship that that has lost its luster, becoming stagnant or boring you may find yourself tipping the balance in some unexpected way. You want to shake things up and find excitement. Go white water rafting together or purchase new sex toys. Find a way to positively shake things up unless there is truly a need to end the partnership.
Each month at the Full Moon the luminaries (Sun and Moon) sit in opposition to each other allowing full illumination of the Moon’s surface. At 5:12 PM EDT we reach the Scorpio Full Moon. Full Moons are strikingly eloquent in their full brilliance, revealing what has previously been hidden. Consider the axis of Scorpio to Taurus. These are both Fixed signs that seek to hold a steadfast position.
At this time the secrets of Scorpio are exposed through connection with the senses and with the earth herself. What can you learn through a powerful connection with your physical body or the earth herself? Get a massage, make love, plant a garden, or go for a hike. Consider what has been growing within that you can now sense the full power and illumination of.
If you are questioning a decision or struggling with a problem, ask your body and the earth to reveal the path forward. This is a powerful day to receive clear messages from the Universe.
At 9:21 PM EDT the Moon enters Sagittarius. Don’t allow yourself to stagnate for the evening. Get out of your normal routines. This is the perfect night to go dancing.
The Scorpio Moon is void-of-course from 5:12 PM EDT until she enters Sagittarius at 9:21 PM EDT. This condition merely suggests that whatever is begun or occurs during this time will not have a significant future impact.
BROADEN YOUR VIEWPOINT
Sunday, May 19, 2019:
The Moon is in idealistic, expansive Sagittarius making no aspects today. Take time to assimilate all that the past week has brought to your life. What has changed? How do you see yourself and your situation differently than you did a week ago?
Your emotional state is lighter and you may want to let loose by finding light-hearted friends to spend the day with. Open your mind and your eyes to a broader more comprehensive perspective. Go on a road trip, spend time in a museum, engage with folks who have something to teach you.
Don’t let your own opinions get the best of you, allow yourself to objectively broaden your viewpoint. Allow your understanding to embrace a more unlimited view of yourself and the universe.
“We use astrology most constructively and creatively when we gain from it a sense of what is possible for us at the highest levels of our potentialities. Seeing that, the challenges is then to keep our eyes open to life itself, to be able to respond appropriately when some event or change of circumstances.” ~ Dane Rudhyar
* In these weekly reports, I am exploring the major aspects formed by transit between the planets. I do not consider every aspect that the Moon makes each day as they can be numerous and are often fleeting moods. I will consider the final major aspect formed by the Moon prior to its VOC* time, as that aspect holds its influence throughout the VOC*.
The aspects under consideration: conjunctions, sextiles, squares, trines, and oppositions.
The planets I work with: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.
