Summary

We have some relief today, and the morning is especially good for taking care of financial and household matters. At 1147 CDT the Moon moves void of course, and all bets are off until some time past 1326 CDT (when the Moon moves into Leo). Some attempts this afternoon might have to be subject to being redone as the Moon is in the “too early to tell” window. But Moon / Sun form a tridecile at 1613 CDT (4:13 PM), and you might have an “Aha!” moment to solve some nagging problem. Overall, for most people, it is a good day and a welcome relief.

Details

Marsout

The Outers (generational planets and objects) are less than straightforward today. Mars is triundecile Selena. A best guess is that this Mars / Selena aspect gives us a boost in terms of pursuit of matters related to our highest calling.
Uranus is quintile Ceres. Uranus can be disruptions or insights; Ceres is “food” and “prosperity,” arguably “supply chains” in this modern world. My guess is that we will see more supply chain disruptions BUT they could open the door to brilliant insights into how to manage supply chains better.
Mars is tridecile Juno, and other than issues of possible violence related to possible betrayal an interpretation is difficult to produce. Mars is also biundecile Black Moon Lillith, not easy to read other than not favorable for most. For new romances, however, this could be a romantic night and (dare we say it) great sex.
Moon is void from 1145 CDT until 1326 CDT; avoid acting on important matters during that window.

Sunout

Sunout (mostly traditional planets, starting with Sun, Mercury, and Venus) yields a sole binovile between the Sun and the North Node (aka “Rahu,” or the “Dragon’s Head”). We interpret this to mean that some people will have a brilliant insight regarding their destiny, their calling or “Karma” that they must work through to grow.

Moonout

Moonout is almost always busy, given that we include higher order aspects. Here, we see Moon oppose Jupiter and Pluto in early morning hours, almost certainly done by the time most readers read this. The same is true regarding a quadrinovile to the South node not quite two hours past midnight.
The tridecile aspect to the Sun is a routine recurring monthly aspect. However, the decile family is related to the quintile family (deciles are multiples of 36 degrees (360 / 10) and quintiles multiples of 72 (360 / 5)). Similar to the novile in some ways, the Sun / Moon tridecile at 1613 CDT (4:13 PM) can give us an insight or “Aha!” moment. This is not a major one but a routine recurrence, this time embedded in this particular day and family of aspects. Pay attention; you might obtain a solution to some nagging problem.

May 30, 2017 (Julian 150) A Decision Awaits You

May 30, 2017 (Julian 150) A Decision Awaits You

Outers are very busy today, but we will come back to that.  Moon is in Leo and effectively completes a Grand Fire Trine with Uranus / Venus in Aries and Saturn in Sagittarius.  This tends to be good for fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) and usually good for air signs (Libra, Aquarius, Gemini).  Water and Earth can benefit, also, but not as much.

Moon in Leo forms a loose Yod with Neptune in Pisces and Pluto in Capricorn.  This is a monthly recurring event for the next few years.  Each month, when the Moon is in Leo, you face some kind of important decision.  Today is no exception.  For most people this is not life and death, but it can be important.  Choose wisely.

Outers continue to be a bit disturbing.  In particular, Mars forms three aspects today, a relatively benign sextile to Uranus, a quadrinovile to Astraea (law and lawyers), and an aspect we will call a “hexaundecile” to Hygeia.  This last aspect is particularly difficult to interpret.  Just know that some of you will encounter something unusual or different regarding the healthcare system today.

Mars opposite Saturn, which perfected on May 29th, continues to dominate affairs all week long.  Let us be clear: this is difficult.  Gemini and Sagittarius will be, at least, stirred to action.  Chances are good, though, that the changes will not be lasting ones.  This has a bit of an odd feel similar to a Moon v/c.

The next big Outer Planet shift will be Jupiter moving direct on June 9th.  As Jupiter slows, some of us will have a chance to “jump ship.”  That means leaving college, starting college, closing out a lawsuit, starting a lawsuit, traveling abroad or coming home if you are already traveling abroad.  You are not required to do this, but you will have the opportunity.

May 26, 2017 (Julian 146) Gemini Moon + Outer Planet Quintiles

May 26, 2017 (Julian 146) Gemini Moon + Outer Planet Quintiles

More than a few astrological prognosticators thought that the New Moon in Gemini was a great time for idea generation and communications.  While that is technically true, today is better.

First, let us take a look at the Moon today.  It has a mix of aspects starting the day with a semi-square to Uranus and a trine to Jupiter.  That is a great combination to “get things done.”  A neptune square by a bit past 5 AM CDT can contribute either confusion or insights on what to do next.  About 3 PM the Moon sextiles Venus, generally favorable, and by a bit past 9 PM the Moon joins Mars (avoid Friday night fights, please).

But the kicker today are the multiple 5th harmonic aspects with outer planet bodies.  Ceres forms a biquintile with Astraea, benefiting those involved with issues of law and prosperity.  Neptune biquintiles Vesta, adding a kind of poetry to any traditions at this time, notably those associated with Memorial Day.  Vesta, in turn, forms a quintile with Sedna, reminding us to honor those who have fallen, and smart ideas about better ways to do that come to us.  Finally, Mars quadrinoviles Hygeia, giving some of us the energy and motivation to improve our health, possibly through exercise.

While any day CAN be a bad day, we think that this day will be mostly benevolent and helpful to most people.  Keep a notepad hand, and capture those novel ideas.

May 1, 2017 (Julian 121) Mars Quadrinovile Saturn + Long Lunar Void

May 1, 2017 (Julian 121) Mars Quadrinovile Saturn + Long Lunar Void

Today contains a possible glimpse into the future, but since Mars (the lesser malefic) and Saturn (the greater malefic) are involved, the news may not be pleasant and it may be overtly “bad.”  Do pay attention because I think (for some of you) your safety might be involved.

Today is relatively simple and straightforward.  At 3:21 PM CDT the Moon in Cancer squares Uranus in Aries and turns void of course and remains void until 11:11 PM CDT when the Moon enters Leo where it will be for the next two days.  Jim Shawvan in the Daily Planetary Guide describes this period of time as an “Opportunity Period.”

We think it COULD be an “Opportunity Period,” but the Saturn square Chiron aspect is of concern to some people.  (Refer to yesterday’s post).  AND, we are only two days away from the Mercury Direct Station.  If you do decide to use the void period for “opportunities,” we recommend a very conservative position in your decision making.
