May 12, 2017 (Julian 132) + May 13, 2017 (Julian 133)

Summary: we think this is mostly a happy weekend for most people.  Cleanup and discard is favored, and chores that make you home more hospitable and like better in general are favored.  Some temptation toward minor disputes may be present; channel that energy, instead, into “getting things done.”  Some people may face important health issues.  But, again, overall this is a benevolent weekend.

May 12, 2017 (Julian 132)

Moon is in Sagittarius (waning) all day today.  Waning moons favor progress by “cleaning out” or eliminating excess.  The big news today is Mars (Gemini) trine Jupiter (Libra).  Many of us will receive a special gift of some kind today, particularly air signs (Libra, Aquarius, Gemini).

Since Mars / Jupiter can make “things” (people, places, things) blow up, avoid dangerous situations and avoid being dangerous yourself today.  Most people will benefit, but some might go off the rails.  Moon forming sesquiquadrates to Mercury (Aries) then Uranus (Aries) tends to amplify this effect from the morning (Western Hemisphere) until some time past 1 PM CDT.  Working alone might be advisable.

About 4 PM CDT Moon squares Neptune, and moments of confusion can occur.  This too shall pass, so just let it work itself out without exerting any more effort than necessary.  Based on my experience (NOT “astrological theory”), I have witnessed people (including myself, but also others) receiving “traffic citations” (i.e. tickets or fines) under this aspect.  Drive safely!

Despite the fact that we are still in the shadow of the recent Mercury Retrograde AND the Moon is waning, some of us (many of us) will be able to achieve great accomplishments today.  Buyers are favored over sellers.  Pallas novile White Moon can add an insight or glimpse of the future, but we are not sure precisely how to interpret this.  Keep your notepad or other capture device handy for ideas.

Mars also forms a quincunx to Hygeia, so health and healthcare issues may be problematic for some of us.

May 13, 2017 (Julian 133)

Moon quincunx Sun about 10:30 AM CDT produces an annoyance or gotcha.  A purchased item may proved defective or inadequate and a return may be necessary.  Like yesterdays Moon / Neptune square, do what is necessary to obtain a remedy (but no more).  After this the day “opens up” and is pleasant for most people.  Moon in Sagittarius forms aspects that favor using this as a “work day” or some kind of “clean up” day.  Do those chores and know that you will be glad you “took care of things.”

9 PM CDT brings a short lunar void for a few hours until half past midnight.  Since it begins with Moon trine Mercury, this is a good time to reflect on the past few days and make notes of your reflections.  More insight will likely come later, yet you will be glad you have these notes.

Outers are a big enigmatic, but perfection of Jupiter square Hygeia may bring health / healthcare issues to the forefront for some of you.  For you, today could be problematic.  A Mars septile throws a bit of karma into the mix (and maybe a glimpse of the future), and we recommend you do something benevolent for someone less fortunate than yourself anonymously and without any hope of future compensation or recognition.  Sometimes even a kind word can turn the tide, maybe saving a life (or many lives)..

April 15, 2017 (Julian 105)

No doubt you already know that the big news today, and really for the past few days leading up to today (and maybe a week or two after) is that Venus moves Direct.  Venus Retrograde is relatively rare (about every 18 months) and carves out, over time, a pentagram in the sky that gradually moves and shifts over the year.  Among other things, this pattern was featured as an important factoid in the bestseller “The Da Vinci Code.”

What is the message, and who does it affect?  Directly or indirectly, it affects all of us.  It particularly affects the water signs and anyone with water sign planets.  Additionally, anyone with a birthday in a late mutable sign (March 15th to the 21st, June 15th to the 21st, September 15th to the 21st, and December 15th to the 21st).  Please do note that your individual chart is necessary for a more precise forecast.  But, if your birthday is in one of these ranges, you probably need to take a hard look at Venusian topics: relationships (particularly the Virgo / Pisces birthdays), finances (investments in general and savings), and anything related to “beauty” whether your own personal physical appearance, your home, or maybe helping someone close to you in these matters.

Beyond that, we suggest you look at our posts on our new blog devoted to retrogrades: “Retrogrades Only.”  Here are some of the posts we have collected there via the reblog process:

Moon is busy with multiple aspects but we think the sesquiquadrates are most important given that Venus is stationary.  Three of these occur on April 15th: Moon to Uranus, Sun, and Mercury.  Focus yourself to take care of business related to transportation or communication (or computer) issues..

Outer Planets: Mars forms an undecile with Eris, and we think this is nearly impossible to interpret because (1) undeciles are a particularly abstract aspect (very subtle) and (2) Eris is new and not much work has been done in interpretation of Eris,  Our best interpretation is that a subtle idea will appear on how to deal with the chaos in your life, and the Moon says you really must get on top of things.  You must take action today.

‘Saturn makes a tri-undecile to Pallas, a little more easy to interpret but not much.  Our read is that practical ideas about how to handle the issues at hand will come to us, but we must choose to seize the moment today.  Missing the window will not destroy your life, but life will be much better if you do what it takes to clear up the stuck issues in your life today

Finally, Uranus perfects a semi-sextile to Ceres.  Again, we encounter surprises and unexpected events, and they either deal more overtly with food and diet or more abstractly with out abundance, in correspondence with the issue of finances and investments that we mentioned before.  Make the spreadsheets, use budget software, and do whatever it takes to get a handle of finances today.  Get your house in order as much as possible.

If you have not done your taxes, do them today and wrap that up.  “Things” are about to become very busy when Pluto stations retrograde in five days.
