Planetary news this week! Astrological forecast for May 20-27, 2019

As this week begins, we are coming off the powerful Scorpio Full Moon and sliding right into Gemini season.  The Sun and Mercury both move into Gemini on the 21st.  Gemini is ruled by Mercury, so the Sun being in Gemini, ruled by Mercury, and conjoining Mercury is an astrological Double Whammy telling us that this is a very mental time – full of curiosity and anticipation and lots of ideas floating around, looking for a place to land.  The Gemini influence can be a great aid in moving through things quickly.

Mars (assertive energy) is in Cancer, super sensitive and perhaps a bit touchy, approaching a challenging square to Chiron which will poke us in uncomfortable places and stimulate urges to react and perhaps lash out if we feel threatened.  This discomfort is annoying to be sure, but also provides us with an opportunity to discover where we still have reactive wounds that perhaps are ready to emerge for healing.  Under this influence it will be helpful to try to avoid blame and focus instead on looking inwards at the emotion itself.  Emotions and feelings are energies – they can be dispelled on an energetic level through breath and opening the heart.   This challenging dynamic will peak on the 23rd and then will begin to dissipate, but it is made easier by a harmonious aspect between Mars and Uranus (sextile aspect).

The energy of Mars harmonizes nicely with the tendency of Uranus to bring in radical change and new ideas.  Under Mars and Uranus it becomes easier to let go of old thought patterns to which we are overly attached, and to embrace new ways of seeing our world and our experiences.  […]

Sunday poetry for the transformation of the Scorpio Full Moon

“There is a secret place. A radiant sanctuary. As real as your own kitchen. More real than that. Constructed of the purest elements. Overflowing with the ten thousand beautiful things. Worlds within worlds. Forest, rivers. Velvet coverlets thrown over featherbeds, fountains bubbling beneath a canopy of stars. Bountiful forests, universal libraries. A wine cellar offering an intoxication so sweet you will never be sober again. A clarity so complete you will never again forget.

“This magnificent refuge is inside you. Enter. Shatter the darkness that shrouds the doorway. Step around the poisonous vipers that slither at your feet, attempting to throw you off your course. Be bold. Be humble. Put away the incense and forget the incantations they taught you. Ask no permission from the authorities. Slip away. Close your eyes and follow your breath to the still place that leads to the invisible path that leads you home.

“Listen. Softly, the One you love is calling. Listen. At first, you will only hear traces of his voice. Love letters he drops for you in hiding places. In the sound of your baby laughing, in your boyfriend telling you a dream, in a book about loving-kindness, in the sun dipping down below the horizon and a peacock’s tail of purple and orange clouds unfolding behind it, in the nameless sorrow that fills your heart when you wake in the night and remember that the world has gone to war and you are powerless to break up the fight. Let the idle chatter between friends drop down to what matters. Listen. Later his voice will come closer. A whisper you’re almost sure is meant for you fading in and out of the cacophony of thoughts, clearer in the silent space between […]

This Scorpio Full Moon is a powerful catharsis

The Full Moon on May 18, 2019 is in the passionate sign of Scorpio. The Full Moon occurs when the Sun is opposite the Moon, and brings about the need for balance and integration. Here the centerpoint occurs between the peaceful harmony and stability of Taurus and the fiery emotional depth of Scorpio. With any opposition, integration is required as the two opposite ends of the spectrum seek expression. While we penetrate deep into the realm of feeling (Scorpio), we also require a sense of balance and serenity (Taurus) in order to gain the true power of this Full Moon.

Both the Sun and Moon are in harmony with both Saturn and Pluto – Saturn helps to provide stability and encourage us to anchor into the practical realm, while the transformative power of Pluto, as the modern ruler of Scorpio, works in tandem with the Scorpio energy to unleash the raw energies of emotion.

Although six planets are in earth signs, holding our feet to the Earth and encouraging us to find state footing in the “real” world. Earth puts aside emotion and feelings, whereas the watery element of Scorpio is consumed by feelings. Supporting this focus on emotion and intuition is Mars, planet of energy and motivation, which has just entered Cancer where it stimulates us to react from our emotions rather than reason.

Intensifying this emotional reactivity is a challenging square from Mars to Chiron, planet of wounding and healing. For a few days before and after this Full Moon, you can expect just about everyone to be more touchy than usual, despite the four planets in Taurus which seek calm and stability. In addition, Venus (relating) is conjunct Uranus (radical behavior), making it less likely that the placidity of Taurus […]

Planetary news this week: Astrological forecast for May 13-20, 2019

This week offers some respite from the planetary intensity we’ve been seeing lately.  Between May 11th and the 15th, we see only mild and pleasant planetary alignments that offer support and help us to regain our balance if we’re feeling out of sorts.

We do see two planets changing signs on the 15th:  Venus will move from fiery Aries to stable Taurus. Venus is quite happy there as the peaceful nature of Taurus supports the Venusian urge to form relationships and experience more beauty and equanimity in life.  This period while Venus is in Taurus, between May 15th and June 8th, is excellent for anything Venusian:  wealth, beauty activities, relationships of all kinds, love and harmony.   This is not a particularly emotional time, or a time in which processing of emotional stuff will be very easy or even desired.

Mars also changes signs on the 15th, moving from Gemini to Cancer.  Mars is NOT particularly happy in Cancer where it tends to be touchy and reactive rather than proactive and self-initiating.  While Mars is in Cancer (between May 15th and July 1st), our drive, desires, and ability to manifest our personal will, all of which Mars motivates, will be colored by our emotional sensitivities.  Mars is said to be in its fall in Cancer because Cancer is emotionally reactive; it is more difficult to be clear about our motivations and the true desires.  Cancer is the sign of nurturing and caring for others, and there is the potential for codependent behavior because of the focus on the needs of other people in an effort to care for oneself.

The Scorpio Full Moon on the 18th could bring out some of these issues since […]
