Busy, Fun and a Bit Unpredictable This Week

Weekly Astrology Overview:

A much easier week is ahead for us and one that likely will be filled with ideas, conversations, fun and social events.  That’s not only in the stars, but here in the USA Memorial Day weekend is coming up and that means potential BBQ’s, picnics and family gatherings!

The biggest astrology news of the week is both the Sun and Mercury moving into Gemini and conjunct one another on the same day!  I would be prepared for busy-ness, a lot of activity and possible scattering of energy as we may lose focus easily with so much going on around us!  The only other “big news” this week is Mars sextile Uranus, where we may feel restless or impatient, and we then jump into making rash decisions.  Let’s break down the week:

Monday, May 20, 2019

MondayWe begin the work week with the Moon in Sagittarius.  There is hope, optimism and excitement.  We’re looking forward, having left the emotional full Moon in Scorpio behind us!

The Moon squares Neptune today.  We may be in a dreamy state of mind and feel like escaping reality.  We may be super sensitive to our environments as well, so make sure you stay away from toxins – including people who have a negative effect on you.

Later today the Moon conjuncts Jupiter leaving us with good feelings and a generosity of spirit.  We are less likely to get triggered by events or people around us.  About the only possible negative here is that we might latch onto an idea or objective and become obsessed with it.  If you experience this effect, then you have to look deeply within your subconscious mind to discover what this means for you.

Tuesday, May 21, 2019

While you slept, the Moon moved into Capricorn, the Sun moved into Gemini and then TuesdayMercury moved into Gemini!  That’s a lot of energy surges happening while you’re trying to sleep, so don’t be surprised if your night was restless and/or you took part in many different dreams!

Let’s start with the Moon in Capricorn which is business-oriented and task centered.  We can get things done, that is if the Sun and Mercury didn’t both move into Gemini at nearly the same time!  LOL

The Sun and Mercury in Gemini are sociable, communicative, and easily distracted.  That could make getting anything done nearly impossible as we are pulled in many different directions.  It does make for excitement and sharing of ideas though, and eventually the work gets done.  So relax and enjoy the conversation, exchange of ideas, and the minds  capriciousness for now 🙂

Wednesday, May 22, 2019

Wed imageToday the Moon is in Capricorn and Mars sextiles Uranus.  On the one hand, there is much opportunity to get things done, and on the other hand, things may happen that distract you or take you away from your stated goals and intentions for the day.  I would say that this is a day to master “going with the flow” as nothing may go as expected!

Mars and Uranus are both very active planets, although Mars is more deliberate, he is debilitated and frustrated a bit by his placement in Cancer right now.  Uranus, in earthy Taurus, is also slowed down by his placement. These two planets coming together could spell frustration, irritation, restlessness and erratic behavior.  Be careful with what you say or do today.  Be especially careful around metal and electricity!  That includes driving!  This energy could last for a few days!

The Moon is also conjunct both Saturn and Pluto today.  There could be emotional undercurrents fueling the Mars/Uranus energies.  Watch for becoming overly reactive to people and events today. Remember that you always have a choice on how to react or respond to what is going on in your life.

Thursday, May 23, 2019

The Moon is void-of-course from last night at 8:57 pm PT until today at 10:49 am PT when Happy-Thursday-022it moves out of Capricorn and into Aquarius.  I sincerely hope the Moon’s move helps us to see things more clearly and with less emotion than the last couple of days!

The Moon in Aquarius often brings us brilliant flashes of inspiration or epiphanies.  Things that were hidden from us can burst out in a moment of absolute clarity.  The Moon squares Uranus today, the ruler of the sign Aquarius.  We want excitement, freedom and movement, but with the rebellious nature of Uranus in Aquarius we may not necessarily be able to make decisions that are good for us.  Refrain from doing anything rash or risky!

Friday, May 24, 2019

Friday pandaThe Moon is in Aquarius all day today, but has a more peaceful use for the energy as Venus is also involved with the Moon.  For those of you in the USA anticipating a 3-day weekend, there is enough energy to make the day go quickly, but not enough to create havoc.  Try to complete projects and clear off your desk so that you start next week with ease.

the weekend graphicNOTE:  I’m including Saturday, Sunday and Monday in the weekend astrology because of the Memorial weekend in the USA.

First a few words about the weekend for those of you who are celebrating a long one by camping or getting out into the great outdoors.  The Moon transitions into Pisces late Saturday, and spends Sunday and Monday in the sign of water.  Be Careful – especially around water this weekend.  Keep your wits about you when boating or swimming or participating in other water sports.

Saturday, May 25, 2019

Today the Moon in Aquarius is ready to play!  The only major aspect for the day is a sextile to Jupiter and that means good times!  Have fun, but remember that the Moon in Aquarius can be unpredictable, and this makes it a day to try not to take risks.  Be safe and sane while you’re having fun!

Sunday, May 26, 2019

The Moon has transitioned into Pisces, generally speaking a sign of calmer, more compassionate energy.  But, the Moon actively engages with Uranus, the Sun and Mars today, adding unpredictability and aggressiveness to the energy.  We may be tempted to overdo it, so have perspective and a sense of proportionality to everything you do!  Keep it a fun and relaxing time.

Monday, May 27, 2019  Happy Memorial Day

Monday memeToday the Moon spends the day in Pisces and is challenging Mercury.  We may be feeling a little tired or low energy to begin the day, especially if we have had an especially busy or action-packed weekend.  Our minds may not be clear either, so take some time to relax, breathe and enjoy the time spent away from the usual daily work you do.

The Moon conjuncts Neptune today as well, and we may feel especially creative and imaginative.  Our intuition is also heightened on a day like today.  Pay attention to the signs, symbols and images that come up in your mind as they may hold the key to your potential.

Make it a great week everyone, and enjoy the extended time for the weekend!

Love & Blessings,
Janet Hickox

 

Chaotic, Yet Powerful Week Ahead

Are you ready for a crazy sort of week?  It’s not crazy in a bad way, but more of crazy in an empowering kind of way. 

Astrology for the Week of May 13-19, 2019

Are you ready for a crazy sort of week?  It’s not crazy in a bad way, but more of crazy in an empowering kind of way.  Mercury and Venus are both in focus this week.  Mercury connects up with Neptune, Saturn and Pluto, while Venus changes signs and connects up to Mars and Uranus.  Mars moves out of Gemini and into Cancer, shaping how we will take action over the next several weeks.  As well, the Sun connects with Pluto to push an agenda of transformation for the week ahead.  Saturday brings us the Full Moon in Scorpio which is filled with intensity and passion!  With this much movement in the sky above us, we can surely expect some chaos!  Let’s break it down …

Monday, May 13, 2019

Monday memeWe start the week with the Moon in practical, detail-oriented and grounded Virgo.  We are primed to get things done!  One of our keywords for the week is Simplify!  What can you do to reduce the complexity of your life?

The Moon plays nice with Mercury and Saturn today as well.  Our mind’s and communications are streamlined and succinct, and Saturn’s connections aids in the overall “clean it up” atmosphere of the day.  While you’re busy working today, the Moon’s opposition to Neptune may cause instant epiphanies or aha’s that intuitively guide you to answers you have been seeking!  Slight caution:  Moon and Jupiter square one another today, so beware of doing too much!  ( too much work, shopping, spending money, eating, drinking etc.)

Sun (Taurus) trine Pluto (Capricorn)

Reduce, reuse, recycle and living within our means are all themes that could be developing in your world this week.  Pluto in Capricorn has already created space for our transformation and the Sun in Taurus – known for its Master Builder and Master Manifesting energy – are working together to empower your next steps, especially when you are staying within acceptable boundaries.  Don’t be afraid to rebuild or grow, just do it with a plan.  Eliminate what is not necessary and see yourself move on lighter and more energized.  We will have another opportunity for this level of “clean up” in our lives again in September, but anything you drag your heels on now, may become an albatross around your neck by then.  So go with your instincts and don’t be afraid to pare down your life.

Tuesday, May 14, 2019

The Moon shifts out of Virgo and into Libra, and Venus and Mars both take center stageTuesday for the next couple of days.  The Moon in Libra puts emphasis on the emotional connections in our relationships.  Venus, the ruler of Libra, is sitting at the 29th (karmic) degree of Aries, so there may be some unresolved issues in our relationships that flare up now.  Take heart though, this is a short lived transit, and Venus’ relationship to Mars today will help us sort through all kinds of issues with ease (but not necessarily without conflict or confrontation).

The Moon trines Pluto and the Sun today while squaring Mars.  There is emotional empowerment here, but also the possibility of ego clashes with those closest to you.  The best route today is to take the high road.  If someone is triggered by your actions or words, then don’t react.  Breathe, and then do what you can to change the frequency.  If you are the one that gets triggered today, then breathe before you react.  Become the observer and become response-able!  Likely there is something valuable for you to learn in the experience.

Venus (Aries) sextile Mars (Gemini)

Sextiles are planetary relationships that bring out the best characteristics of both planets who then share their wisdom with one another.  With Venus and Mars, we are balancing and harmonizing the masculine and feminine energies within ourselves.  The masculine energy protects and takes action, while the feminine receives and nurtures.  It takes a balance of both energies to live in harmony.  Just look at the outer world and you can see the effect of not having masculine and feminine in balance!

Venus sextile Mars also helps us build new and exciting relationships, both love interests and friendships.  We are more open to socializing and exploring connections to a wide range of people.  While we are making new friends and building new relationships, watch out for your old friends as well.  They may feel left out or replaced – their issue to be sure, but, do what you can to embrace both the new and the old.

Wednesday, May 15, 2019

Hump DayVenus moves into Taurus, Mars moves into Cancer and Mercury and Neptune play mind games with another today.  You may experience a shift in your relationships and finances, discover new ways of taking action and find that your mind is picking up signals from your intuition as if by magic!  All in all, not a bad day, just active.

Venus in Taurus

Venus is in Taurus now until June 8, and our focus is on finances, values and relationships.  Venus in Taurus is sensual and delights in the simple pleasures of life.  It’s a great time for massage, getting your hair done and pampering yourself and others.  Venus in Taurus prefers to spend her money on practical yet beautiful things.  Do you have plans to beautify or remodel your home?  Timing is perfect for just that!  Venus in Taurus also strengthens our relationships with others, inspiring trustworthiness and loyalty.

Mars in Cancer

Mars is in Cancer from today until July 1, and the pace of action slows down and narrows in focus.  Cancer is emotional, so a lot of what we do over the next few weeks is dependent upon our moods.  Trying to force yourself to do something while not in the mood, will make for frustration and anger.  Try to pace yourself and go with the flow for awhile.  People may be more defensive than usual as well, so be prepared to back off if need be.  You, too, may be more defensive and this time will offer you the opportunity to look deep within and see what your real fear is all about.  What are you defending and why?

Mercury (Taurus) sextile Neptune (Pisces)

Clear thinking is not a strong point with us today.  We are rather more sensitive to the unseen realm, with increased awareness and intuition, but that doesn’t always make for easy decision-making for us.  Our imaginations are stimulated today opening up the possibility for creative work and possibly solving issues that have plagued us in new ways.  We feel more like escaping the world today, rather than focusing on the tasks at hand.  If you can give yourself the day off, that is a great idea.  If not, then understand that you are likely not going to get everything done that you think you need to do.  Meditation, yoga, and spiritual studies are all favored today.

Thursday, May 16, 2019

Where yesterday’s mind was clouded and unclear, today our minds are more focusedHappy-Thursday-022 and ready to work as Mercury flows with Saturn.  Late in the day, the Moon moves out of Libra and into Scorpio after a 12 hour Void of Course (when the Moon isn’t making any new contacts to any planets or points in our charts).  Consequently, most of the day we are likely not able to start new projects or move any projects ahead in any appreciable way.  Instead, take the time to finish up anything that is left hanging, clear off your desk, or re-evaluate your goals and where you are in relation to achieving them.

Mercury (Taurus) trine Saturn (Capricorn)

When Mercury and Saturn work together we are focused and able to concentrate on the tasks at hand.  You may feel more reserved today as you may want to be left alone with your thoughts.  We can be more thorough and methodical with Mercury and Saturn aligning like this, which gives us access to a keen eye to detail.  Thinking through plans and goals and then reworking them if necessary, is definitely a good activity for today.

Friday, May 17, 2019

Friday pandaThe Moon spends the day in Scorpio making only one new contact and that is a trine to Neptune.  That means today we are likely to be highly emotional and intuitive, maybe even picking up on people’s hidden agendas.  I think of these connections as almost prophetic, as we so easily pick up on what is unsaid and unseen.  Watch out for possible over-emotional responses from others, especially if passions are aroused.

Mercury (Taurus) trine Pluto (Capricorn) 

Processing emotions, digging deeply into our subconscious minds and transformational interactions are all possibilities today.  Mercury is superficial and Pluto goes deep so we find ourselves in interesting territory.  You can become obsessed with an idea or thought that eventually changes you in some way.  There is also the possibility that someone in your world or whom you meet today can be the force for change in your life.  Readings, divination, therapy appointments and coaching can be very fruitful today!

Weekend

Saturday, May 18, 2019

The Moon spends the day in Scorpio, but transitions into Sagittarius this evening.  We still have some powerful undercurrents moving through the day giving us access to the deeper parts of our psyches.  This energy culminates with the Full Moon in Scorpio at 2:12 pm PT /5:12 pm ET/ 9:12 pm UT.

Venus (Taurus) conjunct Uranus (Taurus)

Before the Full Moon today, Venus and Uranus join forces to push us into new experiences and new territory.  We want to try new things and have experiences that we haven’t had before now.  Create new sensations and change up the pace and you will find that this can be an extraordinary day!  Just be careful not to engage in risky behavior however … fun, new, exciting YES, but over-the-top, danger NO!

Full Moon at 28 Scorpio / Taurus 

The full Moon is a time for releasing, completing and revealing something.

Release – being stuck

Complete – your plans for financial abundance

Reveal – how your contribution in alignment with your values will take you to new heights in your life

With Venus (Taurus) conjunct Uranus (Taurus) at this full Moon, expect the unexpected and surprises of all kinds.  Tend to the conservative though, for the reasons I stated above.  Too much risk can destabilize our lives right now.  Take cautious risks, but don’t risk anything that is precious to you.

The full Moon also sextiles Saturn and Pluto – here is where we can tap into some of the more conservative and focused energies.  We can access endurance and stamina here to stay the course until we reach our goals.

Sunday, May 19, 2019

The Moon is in Sagittarius today, but there are no major aspects occurring – thankfully!  We have had quite the week and today’s lack of contacts allows us to recoup our energy, focus on play and fun, and prepare for what comes next.  Take a hike in the great outdoors today, ride your bike, go somewhere new, but most of all … Enjoy yourself!

Many blessings for the Week Ahead,

Janet Hickox
