“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
“For all its complexity, astrology remains fundamentally simple. It offers a time-honored system of symbols that sum up key aspects of human life while providing profound insights and practical guidance.” ~Anne M. Nordhaus-Bike
GENEROSITY OF HEART
Monday, May 21, 2018:
Monday is a quiet day with the creative Leo Moon forming no major aspects to any planets throughout the day.
While the Moon is in expressive playful Leo, it may be difficult to focus on a job or other practical endeavors. You would probably prefer to play with children or engage in creative pursuits. Keep in mind that the higher purpose of Leo is the development of generosity and open-hearted love. Pay attention to your interactions with others; pay attention to the generosity of your own heart.
At 10:02 PM EDT, the Moon enters Virgo which will make Tuesday an easier day to get back to the practical realities of the work week.
The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) all day until she enters Virgo at 10:02 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.
EXPRESS YOUR DREAMS
Tuesday, May 22, 2018:
Tuesday’s practical Virgo Moon helps you focus on simple productivity throughout the day. This should be an easy day to work with detailed information and mundane tasks. With the Moon trine Saturn at 12:20 PM EDT, you are able to see clearly what needs to be done and face the responsibilities at hand.
A sextile aspect forms from Mercury to Neptune as the evening approaches. Your focus will shift as conversations and ideas take on a softer tone. This is a good evening to soothe any harsh edges that may recently have been created between yourself and others. It will be easy to express a gentler more sensitive perceptive. This will be a great evening for any project that entails creative writing or the expression of your dreams.
Head to sleep early and you can avoid a tendency to say more than is advisable. Watch that pillow talk as Mercury opposes Jupiter in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
GET YOUR POINT ACROSS
Wednesday, May 23, 2018:
In the early morning hours, pay attention to what should and shouldn’t be said or openly expressed. The opposition of Mercury to Jupiter could have you saying what you didn’t mean to say. Once the day is in full swing that won’t be a problem.
The Moon remains in Virgo forming supportive aspects that will provide a smooth, effective day.
You may want to stay up late on Wednesday night to give a mighty push forward on a project or other endeavors.
You very well may have too much energy to fall into an easy, gentle sleep. At 10:39 PM EDT, a gratifying trine aspect forms between the talkative Gemini Sun to assertive Mars, now in Aquarius. Your ability to creatively use your mind and communication skills is powerful. Engage in an active discussion, debate, or lively conversation. You should be able to get your point across.
The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 10:56 AM EDT until she enters Libra Thursday morning at 2:51 AM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

DIPLOMACY AND KINDNESS
Thursday, May 24, 2018:
Your spirits feel quite buoyed as you begin the day on Thursday with the Moon newly in peace-loving Libra. A Grand Trine is formed as the Libra Moon lines up to a trine aspect to both Mars and the Sun before 9:00 AM EDT. This is a lovely way to begin the day!
The afternoon and evening bring some challenges as the Moon forms difficult aspects to both relationship oriented Venus and restrictive Saturn. You may notice yourself or others being moody or downright cranky.
Don’t let these quickly passing influences change your course. Continue moving forward utilizing the Libra Moon’s ability to see both sides of all situations, and engage in kindness and diplomacy. Focus your attention on bringing beauty and love to all people and situations you encounter.
ALLOW VULNERABILITY; CULTIVATE TRUST
Friday, May 25, 2018:
You awake Friday morning with the gentle reassurance of where you find yourself in your life. At 5:52 AM EDT, expansive Jupiter forms a flowing trine aspect to dreamy Neptune. Your higher understanding and spiritual awareness support expansion and unconditional trust in the higher purpose of your life.
Shortly thereafter, another trine aspect forms between Mercury and Pluto. There are powerful truths to be told. These may entail difficult conversations, perhaps the need to speak of things that are normally kept undercover in your family or social circle. However, you are feeling the strength in your opinions and are willing to stand strong in what needs to be expressed.
At 5:04 PM EDT, with a square aspect from the Libra Moon to Pluto, anger may arise. This is a Moon transit and will pass quickly, do not let it push aside the benefits of what you have accomplished earlier in the day. You may want to spend an hour or two alone in the early evening. Keeping with your own good company will prevent tempers from quick unproductive flare-ups.
With an overnight opposition from Venus to Saturn, Friday night and Saturday may show clearly where hidden rifts reside in your intimate partnerships. Look reality in the eye and allow for deep vulnerability. Do your best to see the situation from the perspective of each person involved. Allow vulnerability; cultivate trust.
The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:04 PM EDT until she enters Scorpio on Saturday morning at 9:39 AM Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.
CLARITY AND ADJUSTMENTS
Saturday, May 26, 2018:
While you were sleeping, Venus (the planet of love, money, and personal values) opposed Saturn (the planet of reality and stabilization). This provides the ability to clearly see what you have recently developed in your partnerships, finances, and other areas of deeply personal values. The cycle between Venus and Saturn is a cycle of stabilizing love and personal values. This cycle began in late December 2017; consider what began at that time. The growth of what was planted then is now clearly visible.
Make adjustments that are needed now. Look clearly at any mistakes and make changes now. Look clearly at your successes and continue forward with determination. Your understanding of these things may be very different from the perspective of others. Embrace the ambiguity of opinions.
At 9:39 AM EDT, the Moon enters Scorpio, profoundly deepening your emotions. Superficial connections and conversations will not cut the mustard. Go deep. Connect profoundly.
The Libra Moon is VOC* until she enters Scorpio at 9:39 AM. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.
Sunday, May 27, 2018:
Sunday’s Scorpio Moon offers a day for delving deeply into complex emotions and deep connections. The Moon touches off sweetness and expansion throughout the day providing a sense of mystery and dreaminess. You have the patience and concentration to dig deep and find the rich compost beneath what may appear unsightly on the surface.
This is a great day to tackle tasks or conversations that require a clear and focused mind. Look below the surface, dig deeper. You may be surprised to find solutions to long unresolved issues.
Throw away what is no longer needed or useful in your life. Make space for what delights you. Allow change.
* 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.
