Life has certainly changed quickly. It is time to begin the process of reimagining our lives, time to consider how we want to move forward with the perspectives we are developing. Venus’ upcoming retrograde (May 13 – June 25) will give us plenty of time to reevaluate our deepest values. There is much inner work for each of us as we move forward to create a new reality.
We must leach learn to live with fear and with the reality of death. We must face the consequences of our actions. We must learn to approach each other for genuine connection rather than for validation.
Please keep in mind that transits to your natal planets can override these more universal ones. A personal consultation offers deep understanding.
Clear Thinking and Cooperation – Monday, May 4, 2020
As the new week begins are you sheltering at home or are you working in the outside world? Either way, the Libra Moon is insistent that you find ways to work with objectivity and cooperation. As the Moon forms a supportive trine aspect to Saturn you are determined to create peaceful copacetic connections.
At 5:41 PM EDT, the Sun joins with Mercury putting your attention directly on communications and the activity of your mind. Your thinking will be clear enough to get many details crossed off your ‘to do’ list.
Clear up paperwork, pay the bills or contact your creditors, respond to emails, make contact with folks you have unfinished business with.
Make sure you have someone to talk with this evening, reach out for connection with a friend who can engage with you on light energizing topics. This is not the time to discuss heavy serious issues. Keep it light.
***The Virgo Moon is void-of-course until she enters Libra at 3:10 AM EDT. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact. Hopefully, you will be sleeping.
Devil’s Advocate and the Peacemaker – Tuesday, May 5, 2020
Today’s Libra Moon helps you work toward cooperative interdependence with coworkers or family. If you are balancing working at home with family (also working or studying at home) these can be tricky issues.
The majority of today will pass without incident, you will be able to maintain that balance smoothly.
However, the evening may challenge the flow. No matter how much you would like to, you can not keep everyone happy.
At 7:05 PM EDT, the Moon forms a problematic square to Pluto. Determine who is playing the role of Devil’s Advocate and who is playing the Peacemaker. Don’t head into separate corners fighting a battle that no one will win.
Help each other find humor in the roles that you each play. Work together with objectivity, connect through a creative or artistic project.
If you are on your own, you may be playing the role of both the Devil’s Advocate and the Peacemaker. Listen to your internal voices. Spend the evening enjoying and creating beauty in your environment.
***The Libra Moon is void-of-course from 10:30 PM EDT until she enters Scorpio In the wee hours of Wednesday morning. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact.
Seek Your Inner Shaman – Wednesday, May 6, 2020
If you are closely attuned to the movement of the Moon through the signs you will notice the depth and intensity of the Scorpio Moon today.
The light and airy conversations that appealed to you yesterday will no longer do. You want to converse on topics that have the potential to excavate something hidden, powerful, and significant. Small talk has no place at the table today.
If you find yourself exploring your deepest psychological depths make sure to keep one hand on your safety valve and don’t get lost in the depths. If you find yourself depressed or obsessively brooding, go for a walk in nature and give that exploration a rest. If you find yourself dealing with anxiety, go a little deeper, there is something that needs your attention.
This is a day to spend time alone seeking your inner shaman, catalyst, or psychologist. Embrace your understanding and knowledge to go beyond what is frightening and rise like a Pheonix from the ashes.
***The Libra Moon is void-of-course until she enters Scorpio at 3:04 AM EDT. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact. Hopefully you will be sleeping.
Scorpio Full Moon – Peak Time of Clarity – Thursday, May 7, 2020
Today begins with the Scorpio Full Moon exact at 6:45 AM EDT. With any Full Moon, there are two points in time to reflect back upon. Look to the New Moon that occurred two weeks ago (Taurus New Moon, April 22) and, more importantly, the New Moon that occurred six months ago in Scorpio (October 27, 2019).
Can you see the ripening of projects and clarification of situations that began at those times?
The Full Moon always represents completion and a peak time of clarity. This is a day to celebrate how far you have come and what you have accomplished. Whatever you began building late last October is showing its results now. Honor your process.
Because this Full Moon is in Scorpio you can expect the illumination to be of things that are traditionally kept hidden or private. The bright light of this Full Moon shines into the darkest corners. You may or may not want to see what is revealed, but there it is in stark contrast to it’s normally hidden state.
With revelation comes the opportunity to excavate and heal. This is a time ripe with the possibility to do that.
***The Scorpio Moon is void-of-course from 10:39 PM EDT until she enters Sagittarius in the wee hours of Friday morning. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact.
Seeking New Perspectives – Friday, May 8, 2020
Today begins with a lighter tone as the moon is now in Sagittarius. The past few days you have engaged with your inner shaman and psychologist (Scorpio Moon). Now it is time to engage your inner philosopher and adventurer (Sagittarius Moon).
In normal times this would be a lovely weekend for a road trip. We are not living in ‘normal times’ and have lost a clear idea of what that even means! Don’t let the impulsivity of Sagittarius send you into unsafe places. To keep yourself and others healthy, you will need to find different ways to seek and explore new perspectives and ideas.
Go for a walk in nature, explore the world from the perspective of other creatures. Seriously. How would you see the world from an eagle’s perspective or an ant’s? Why do we suppose that the human perspective is the only one of value?
It is easy to be arrogant in your attachment to your own opinions with the Moon in Sagittarius. The cure is to slow down and discover how much you can learn from looking through the eyes of others.
When you settle down for the evening watch travel documentaries that show you how other cultures view the world. If you want recommendations, let me know! I’d be glad to give my opinion!
***The Scorpio Moon is void-of-course until she enters Sagittarius at 3:15 AM EDT. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact.
Persuasion and Promotion – Saturday, May 9, 2020
Today begins with Mercury trine Pluto, tomorrow Mercury will trine Jupiter. These two related transits move the entire weekend to powerful conversations and the gifts of a powerful mind.
If you want to influence someone’s thinking this is a great weekend to engage in the communications that are necessary to do so.
You should be able to negotiate favorable outcomes with the power of persuasion and promotion. Your understanding of situations, circumstances, and how others think is strong. You are also more vulnerable than usual to others who are working to turn your mind in a certain direction.
Consider deeply any big ideas that appeal to you, make sure you are seeing the whole picture. Conspiracy theories are a dime a dozen in today’s lexicon.
The Moon continues through Sagittarius today. Keep your eyes open to the perspectives inherent in big ideas as you engage in healthy skepticism.
Accomplishment and Practical Plans – Sunday, May 10, 2020
The Moon has entered Capricorn before you begin your day, offering a more serious tone to the end of the weekend. We are lucky this weekend to have delightful transits to support the very best side of Capricorn.
Accomplishment is important to you today. You may find yourself organizing a plan in a constructive and determined manner. Draw up the blueprints, write the business plan, create the outline. These are solitary endeavors resulting in the need to spend some time alone today. When the Moon is in Capricorn we all need time alone, Capricorn is the sign of the Hermit.
With the Capricorn Moon, we have two lovely aspects perfecting today. The energies of each can support your practical plans and accomplishments. First Mercury trine Jupiter at 10:35 AM EDT. This allows information and understanding to flow from your ideals and beliefs to the projects and work at hand. Second, at 12:15 PM the Sun forms a sweet sextile aspect to Neptune. This brings your imagination and mystical understandings to your serious projects as well.
At the end of the day, you should feel that you have done well in accomplishing something important to your future.
***The Sagittarius Moon is void-of-course from 2:10 AM EDT until she enters Capricorn at 5:39 AM EDT. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact.
* In these weekly reports, I explore 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 give rise to 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.
