Weekly Astrology Forecast — May 25, 2020 – May 31, 2020

Forecast

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Forecast for the week of May 25, 2020 – May 31, 2020:

We start the week with the Moon conjunct the North Node in Cancer on Monday, while Mars sextiles Uranus.The Moon is right at home in Cancer, the sign it naturally rules. Its conjunction to its own North Node occurs at 0° Cancer which could see you wanting to concentrate more on home and family than anything else during this time.

The Moon’s North and South Nodes are naturally retrograde. They spend about a year and a half in each sign as a part of a larger 19+ year cycle. In this case with the Nodes at 0°, they’re spending their last few days in Cancer and Capricorn before moving into Gemini and Sagittarius.

This week starts on Monday with a last quarter (Balsamic) Moon in Aries, which first conjuncts Chiron and then sextiles Mercury before the day is through. The last quarter Moon is tied to the outer world, ie our professional aspirations and public standing. As a result, this is a good time to think about how your actions are aligning with your career goals and reputation.

You may find yourself at a crossroads and needing to make some changes in this area. As the Moon begins waning in light and counting down toward the New Moon on Friday, you’ll have opportunities to reassess and fine tune your social standing. The fact that it’s in Aries is significant in that the Moon’s brief transits through Fire signs will be the only Fire sign activity we’ll see over the next 6 weeks (until Mars moves into Aries on June 30th).

This week we have two planets (Mercury and Mars) changing signs, three planets (Saturn, Venus and Jupiter) and an asteroid (Pallas Athena) all turning retrograde and an out of bounds Venus.

From an astrological perspective, retrogrades motivate us to review, revisit, refine and resolve challenges that are holding us back from progressing in the area related to the planet involved. They may relate to unfinished business from past lives, or they may refer to repeating patterns in our present lifetimes.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Forecast for the week of May 4, 2020 – May 10, 2020:

This week it’s going to be one Mercury transit after another, along with a meteor shower, a Full Moon in Scorpio and several planets slowing down as they prepare to turn retrograde. 

Starting on Monday, the Sun conjuncts Mercury and Venus squares Neptune. Starting with the Sun / Mercury aspect, this is a superior conjunction (as Mercury is currently in direct motion). It’s generally a very positive aspect, especially for things like interacting and communicating with others, sharing ideas, and gathering information, But because it’s so close to the Sun that it’s hidden from view (a condition known as “combust”) you want to be aware that not everything that pops into your head during this time is worth acting on.

Aries: The Sun

This month you want to focus on what’s right in your world rather than what might be wrong. The Sun card is all about happiness, optimism and vitality: it’s about being present in the moment and celebrating being alive.

Look around you and take notice of the blessings that surround you. Step away — at least mentally — and turn your attention away from work and mundane affairs long enough to soak in the energizing rays of the Sun.

The Sun card — this version from the Lightseer’s Tarot  — represents energy and vitality. Feeling happy to be alive. Getting in touch with your inner child, your true authentic spirit, the part of you that longs to embrace life with ever fiber of your being.

When we think of the Sun, we think of warmth, light and life. It warms our spirits as well as our bodies; it brightens our moods as well as the outside world, and it brings life to our dreams and goals as well as to every living thing on the planet.

The Sun card in the Tarot is much the same way. It refers to the wonder and glory of being alive. Of feeling warm, confident, radiant and spirited. Its attitude is that “everything is as it should be,” for you and all around you.

The Sun reflects your own inner light and inspires you to let it shine. It encourages you to say yes to life rather than letting your troubles hold you back. It tells you to turn your face to the Sun rather rather than looking back over your shoulder toward whatever caused you to dim your light in the first place.

The Sun card is all about optimism, enthusiasm and personal radiance. It’s about being yourself and allowing yourself to “shine,” without any pretense or constraint. Even when the sky is cloudy, the Sun is still shines. We may not always see it but it’s always there — and serves as a reminder of the warmth and vitality that each of us possess

May 2020 Monthly Horoscopes by Jeanne

Welcome to the merry month of May! Most of us are still living with self-isolation restrictions but May is still a time when the earth starts to blossom and glory in its flora and fauna. Revel in the beauty that surrounds you, it is truly restorative.

It is my deduction from the astrology of it that the end of May and early June signifies greater freedom for the majority of folks. Mercury breaks out of the grasp of the north and south nodes, a condition known as Kala Sarpa yoga in the Vedic astrology tradition. This will help all of us to get out again as the little dude likes to move around. The rest of the planets remain trapped between the nodes until the Sun breaks free the third week of June and Venus escapes in early August. This condition really defines what happened since March, 2020 when the Kala Sarpa yoga began as did the quarantine/self-isolation restrictions for most of us.

We also have 3 planets going into retrograde motion all within 3 days of each other from May 11-14 and this energy will facilitate a return or review of behavior and action. Saturn kicks off the action on 5/12 at 1 degree 57’ Aquarius, followed by Venus on 5/13 at 21 degrees 50’ Gemini and finally Jupiter on 5/14 at 27 degrees 14’ Capricorn. Caution and careful deliberation is favored as Saturn and Jupiter don’t cover much cosmic ground as they move very slowly through the end of the month.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Forecast for the week of Apr 27, 2020 – May 3, 2020:

This week we have a planet (Mercury) and an asteroid (Pallas Athena) changing signs, an out of bounds Venus, and the second of two first quarter Moons. We start with Mercury leaving Aries (thus leaving us without any fire-sign planets for most of the rest of the week) and moves into Taurus on Monday.

Mercury in Taurus is patient, practical and serene. It can be slow and methodical, mainly because it doesn’t see the point in getting its feathers ruffled over things that are likely to iron themselves out over time. 

Mercury is also now in mutual reception with Venus, with each of these planets in the other planet’s ruling sign. The mutual reception can activate the positive energy for both planets, making for enhanced communications, especially where cooperation and collaboration are concerned.

This week we have a New Moon in Taurus, an asteroid (Ceres) changing signs, a planet (Pluto) changing direction, and a handful of hard (square) aspects between personal and transpersonal planets. 

There’s an exact Moon / Jupiter sextile (in Pisces and Capricorn) as we start things off on Monday. Although this is a relatively fleeting aspect — the Moon goes void of course immediately afterwards and then remains thus until it moves into Aries around 7am — it’s still a nice way to start the week.

Forecast

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Forecast for the week of Apr 13, 2020 – Apr 19, 2020:

This week starts with a (still Full) void of course Moon in Sagittarius on Monday.  This is an expansive and spirited Moon, with a strong focus on personal and spiritual evolution. It inspires us to think about travel, adventure, spirituality, philosophy and higher mind pursuits. It takes us out of our comfort zones and gets us thinking about how the other half lives.

The void of course Moon is not really a big deal. It’s a relatively common occurrence that will most likely fly by imperceptibly; by 1:00 am (UT) it will have moved into Capricorn where it will conjunct its own South Node and square Mercury in the early morning hours. With so many of us practicing social isolation these days, we may have to get creative about pursuing the Sagittarian interests (such as travel, adventure and the outdoors) and the Capricornian interests (such as business and public standing) as well.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Forecast for the week of Apr 6, 2020 – Apr 12, 2020:

This week starts with a first quarter (Gibbous) Moon in Virgo on Monday. As Virgo is the sign associated with humility, productivity, self-improvement and service to others, this Moon is great for shifting our collective focus toward these areas.

It opposes Neptune and Mercury in Pisces straight away, so you don’t want to act on every brilliant idea that pops into your head. The potential for deception — including self-deception is strong. Fortunately it also trines Pluto and Jupiter before moving into Libra where it then trines Saturn before the day is through.

Crow Tarot King of Swords

Aries: King of Swords

This month, with your ruler (Mars) joining Saturn in Aquarius, it’s going to be time to put on your thinking cap and bring forth your problem solving skills. Like the King of Swords in this card — from the wonderful Crow Tarot — you need to be alert and observant.

The King of Swords is intelligent, strategic and analytical. He’s inherently impartial. He doesn’t mince words, and he doesn’t listen to excuses. He makes his decisions based on logic and reason rather than compassion and empathy.

He’s a no-nonsense individual who is expected to mete out justice with a fair and authoritative hand. He may be a parent, a supervisor, a judge, or even a friend that steps in to give you a reality check when you need one most.

As with all court cards this can also refer to you — or to a state of mind that you need to develop in order to preserve a sense of order in your life. You may have felt taken advantage of by someone who’s overstepped their bounds and this card encourages you to resolve that problem by taking a more authoritative stance.

The King of Swords encourages you to be decisive and to start thinking ahead. It asks you to clear away the debris and work on attaining better focus.

And it challenges you to step away from emotional attachments and make your decisions based on what is right, fair, and most importantly best for you in the long run. it says it’s time to get clear about the direction you want to take in your life. And to plan ahead accordingly.

Aries

And here we all are, in home isolation or home quarantine under orders from our state or local governments. However you want to label it, it’s no joke. This situation underlines some of the symbology of the Saturn Pluto in Capricorn conjunction, i.e., restrictions from government (Saturn in Capricorn) with possibility of death (Pluto) if we don’t.

Within this circumstance is also the possibility of great transformation within ourselves and for society if we use this “timeout” constructively and with positive intention.

When will it end? I think there will be some positive news around April 15th but it may take another 2-4 weeks for the isolation orders to lifted, depending upon where you live and the incidence of infections in that area.

So, hunker down and have a plan of action for self-improvement, rather than just binge-watching Netflix shows and snacking at will. I don’t even know what to say about the TP hoarding phenomenon but it just seems fear based to me (Saturn) around the survival root chakra (Pluto), as one possibility.
