Now, this week’s Forecast…


Monday, May 4th:

Monday, the Moon remains in detail-oriented, practical Virgo and VoC until 3:09am EDT; at that time, the Moon enters harmony-loving, balance-seeking Libra, where it will journey until very early Wednesday early morning. The energy of the Libra Moon helps us be naturally courteous and diplomatic; we are more polite at this time, as we seek the approval of others.

We very much want to maintain equal, fair relationships at this time, and are therefore open to making compromises and negotiating. These next two days are a great time for mediation — but our need for peace and accompanying aversion to direct conflict could pull us to “yes” more easily than we might like.

We may also be able see both sides of the equation so well that we can’t make decisions. As best as you can, find an inner balance with this and communicate what needs to be said with grace and charm — even if it’s “No” 😉 One last quick note: this is also a great time for anything to do with visual arts.

Monday late afternoon, a Sun/Mercury alignment in 15 degrees of Taurus becomes exact at 5:41pm EDT. We started to feel this aspect build from last week, Saturday morning (May 2nd) on; and it will be strong until this Thursday. When the Sun and Mercury come together, we are especially sharp, communicative, and open. This aspect indicates a confident mind and an analytical approach to life.

Intelligence and communication abilities are strong. We can expect a no-nonsense approach to decision-making. Ideas tend to be practical and useful.

That said, we may not listen as well as the other speaks — we might be too busy thinking about what to say next. Words matter now, so choose them wisely: If people hung on your every word, what would you say then? What would you hold back from saying?

Our opinions are usually strong during this time; we like to think independently and are proud of our opinions and our thoughts. For this reason, our egos might get bruised if we are not “heard” — if our opinions are pushed aside, ignored or criticized. As best as you can, express yourself fully, knowing that others may have different opinions… and that’s ok.

We may dig in our heals, but find it does not serve us, so choose your battles wisely and seek peace wherever possible.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 12-18 degrees of Scorpio, Taurus, Aquarius or Leo ? If so, you will be more affected by this alignment. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo, Gemini or Virgo (the Sun rules Leo; Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo).

Also on Mondaythe Saturn’s station intensifies until May 16th. “Stationing” is when a planet moves more slowly through the sky. When a planet stations, its energy becomes more “exalted”; in the case of Saturn, this means we all feel the need to more fully face what is currently so, our actual reality.

Saturn has to do with doing what needs to be done — so we can fully understand the practical implications of our reality, and the consequences of our past actions. Saturn also represents our structures, responsibilities, commitments and ability to “do” life, on life’s terms.

As spirit beings in a physical world, it’s best to observe the laws of the physical world. The sooner we learn to “play by the rules”, the easier life gets. Saturn also represents time and the “domain” of time: growing up, maturing, understanding and acknowledging our limitations, setting healthy boundaries with others, living with integrity, being authentic and truthful, being serious and focused on building something of value to society.

Saturn is our teacher. If you had a cosmic teacher, where would your personal “Earth Classes” be focused, right now? Where are you being asked to take a more serious look at your social affiliations, communities (in-person or online), or group causes? Do they truly resonate with your personal vision for the future? Does participation in those groups or networks align with who you are now? What requires a more mature approach in those areas?

What calls for a commitment towards a larger future vision? What will time do?

As best as you can during the time of the station, bring flexibility and open-mindedness to any frustrations. This more intensified Station-phase will last until May 16th; and Saturn starts its 4-month Retrograde phase on Monday, May 11th in almost 2 degrees of Aquarius (more on that next week). Is your Sun-sign or Ascendant in Capricorn or Aquarius? If so, you are…
