Dynamic Highlights this month:
FULL MOON ON 5/14/14 AT 24 SCORPIO AT 3:17 PM EDT
MARS, THE PLANET OF ACTION, INITIATIVE OR AGGRESSION GOES DIRECT AT 9 LIBRA ON 5/19/14
VENUS IN ARIES, THE LOVE, MONEY AND VALUES PLANET WILL TRIGGER THE ONGOING, VOLATILE URANUS – PLUTO SQUARE ON 5/14-5/15/14
5/2-5/3/14- Mercury in Taurus oppose Saturn in Scorpio- An intense, serious, focused and disciplined alignment. Expect potential delays or blockages in communication and travel matters. This is a good time to study and discipline ourselves to set limits if necessary.
5/10/14- Sun in Taurus oppose Saturn in Scorpio- The energy today is super-responsible and duty bound. Ambition, achievement and the need to work are emphasized. Challenges may occur with authority figures as Sun-Saturn can be intimidated by others authority or not be the best team player.
5/11/14- Venus in Aries oppose Mars in Libra- Venus is the urge to merge and Mars can suggest conflict, passion or excitement. Sensitivity in balancing needs within partnerships is a theme today.
Mercury, the communication planet, linked to dreamy or escapist Neptune amps up psychic intuition, imagination or creativity. However, discrimination is needed in all forms of communication. The logical mind may not perceive things as they really are. We can feel a bit confused or spacey today. With Neptune, all is not as it seems.
5/14/14- Full Moon in Scorpio at 3:17 PM EDT- All Full Moons call for a balance of opposing energies. Scorpio themes are extremely potent at this time: intensity, all or nothing, transformation, endings and beginnings, facing fears and intimacy. The Full Moon is closely aligned with Saturn in Scorpio, suggesting increased responsibility and serious emotions regarding above themes. Moon-Saturn can feel moody and depressed at times. On a positive note, this is a great time to make a much needed change that requires courage and discipline.
5/14-5/15/14- Venus in Aries conjoins Uranus and squares Pluto- Venus in close contact with experimental, rebellious and wild card Uranus and intense, all or nothing Pluto suggest sudden surprising developments that force hidden matters to the surface to be confronted or challenged.
The cardinal grand cross continues this month. Conflicting energies are competing for resolution. Appeasing all planetary archetypes without challenges occurring is unlikely. Discord and disruption is part of the process of learning and growing through change.
5/18/14- Venus in Aries square Jupiter in Cancer- This alignment can suggest too much of a good thing if over-indulgent. However, the mood is generous, expansive and benevolent today.
5/19/14- MARS STATIONS DIRECT in LIBRA! Mars, the action planet, has been retrograde in Libra since 3/1/14. Finally, forward momentum will begin in all Mars related matters: How we assert ourselves, how and where we invest our energies, how we do not assert ourselves, how we handle or do not handle anger or how we take the initiative. Many of us have made some significant internal changes over the last few months, changes that will become more externalized going forward. Mars will remain in the sign of Libra through July 2014. Do you know where this area is in your birth chart? This is where we have been challenged to redirect our energies in our own unique manner.
Mars will soon trigger the Uranus – Pluto square mid to late June 2014, activating more of the same: sudden or shocking developments that provoke unrest. Mars is the warrior archetype and Uranus is the rebel archetype. Pluto is the death and rebirth archetype or irrevocable change. Of course, there may be sudden, innovative developments which promote positive, evolutionary growth and change as well.
5/28/14- New Moon in Gemini square Neptune in Pisces- Gemini is all about thought, communication, travel, networking and diversity. New beginnings are seeded during the dark of the New Moon. The square to Neptune deepens our capacity to healing and intuitive insights. “Inspired ideas” are a theme over the next few weeks. On another note, the square to Neptune can blur boundaries and confuse us. Apply discrimination to any new endeavors that challenge mental clarity.
