May 19-25, 2024

This is a very influential week that reaches its apogee on Thursday’s Full Moon in Sagittarius, but is not lost thereafter. We are gliding into Gemini season with giddy anticipation and inspiration for what is to come. Sun, Venus, and Jupiter all ingress Gemini this week, and these are the most benevolent celestial bodies, so what we are in for, while still reeling around the confines of chaotic and confusing overwhelm about where we have been, is a pressure drop and blessings of newness and hope. The week is building us up to find where we belong. This will unfold as revelations we have resisted, plans we must redesign, and new commitments we are excited to embrace. Let’s embrace each other and relish the friendships we share.

Moon in Libra opposite Mars in Aries and conjunct the South Node

Sun in Taurus sextile Neptune in Pisces

Mars conjunct the North Node in Aries


Turning points are not always clearly identified or obvious, but when Moon and Mars oppose one another on the Moon’s nodes, there is certainly some element of change afoot. There is reflection upon our relationships more than anything else, but there is also a degree of desire for separation and independence from our relationships. This is not to say our relationships should be ending, it is only to say there may need to be more separation and independence within the relationships. How free are we to make our own decisions? How often do we feel the need to check with our partner before we do something? Let’s analyze this topic today.


Today marks the final day of Sun in Taurus, aptly sextiling Neptune. We are reaching for the gold ring down inside that we never truly reach but are always trying to. The gold ring of our spiritual quintessence is often trying to manifest on the material plane within the vessel of our body. When we experience the manifestation of our spirit through any conscious practice, we are expanding the vessel in which it can be contained. This bridges the division between the two and shows us how they are actually not divided at all. How can we reconcile this notion?


Driven, as mentioned before, by a desire to assert our individuality and retain our birth right to think, feel, desire, and achieve what the entirety of our spirits seek requires compassion, love, and acceptance, especially when immersed in a committed relationship. Furthermore, we may just begin to recognize with amplified astonishment exactly what we are most driven to pursue, especially if our space, both physical and mental, are clear enough and well-intentioned enough to notice it. What drives us most? What really exhilarates every cell in our body?

Moon in Libra opposite Chiron in Aries

*Sun ingresses Gemini*

Moon in Scorpio square Pluto in Aquarius


With a very early morning Moon-Chiron opposition, we are continuing to seek what we need to heal our wounded identity. This is a long-standing journey of discovery, however, and not just present during this fleeting Moon aspect. That said, there is opportunity for reflecting upon how influential our relationships are in seeding discoveries along the way. It is no surprise that we often take our relationships for granted, so any chance we get to sit in silence to specifically contemplate the importance of our relationships, even if they are sometimes rocky, can teach us a lot about ourselves.


This kind of mental stimulation is apropos for Sun’s ingress into Gemini today. We begin to remember how to express ourselves a bit more light-heartedly. We loosen our grasp on the emotional weight of life in favor of good conversation and good humor. We feel a growing insatiable appetite for learning more about life and how that knowledge can ground us through developing a greater understanding of the world and universe we live in. We want to scurry off into the foothills of our dreams, skip rocks in the streams, climb trees, talk to the squirrels, and barrel downhill through the brush delighting in life’s wonderment. It is fascination season! Perhaps we will meet somewhere down on Fascination Street!


Later in the evening, the emotional depths and woes can creep in again, reminding us, however reluctantly, that there are challenges in life we must not disregard.  We may not feel motivated to venture into such voids, but perhaps someone will take us there anyway. The pot can boil over if we are not privy to fair warning, so when we get home from our giddy flamboyant jaunt in the foothills we should be prepared to venture elsewhere into the uncharted territories of our psyches and feelings. Who knows, maybe we have a lot more to learn today, especially since Sun is about to trine Pluto!

Moon in Scorpio opposite Mercury in Taurus


While this is the only perfecting aspect today, there are two potent applying aspects that will perfect tomorrow and Thursday, respectively, and they are Sun trine Pluto and Jupiter sextile Neptune. Briefly taking these into consideration, we are fielding a release of immense pressure put upon us by wavering Pluto while also fielding an amassing overwhelm of chaos and confusion that is wracking our tendency to resist anything involving change or expansion. More on these tomorrow and Thursday.


Today we are analyzing our depths and considering subtle shifts in our value system. I often speak of our values, especially lately with so many celestial bodies in Taurus, so I understand it may seem rather redundant at times, but these are not just personal values that are at play. These are also the values of humanity. The subtle intangible shifts in what we deem important and essential are very difficult to notice most of the time. They often appear as barely audible whispering thoughts that may be so fleeting we only realize a few of them here and there. But eventually we reemerge with new perspectives and approaches to how we want our lives to unfold.

Moon in Scorpio trine Saturn in Pisces

Sun in Gemini trine Pluto in Aquarius

Moon in Scorpio opposite Uranus in Taurus


Our emotional experiences are sometimes a lot to handle, especially when they disrupt our everyday lives in such a way that interferes with our work and accomplishments. Perhaps today will uncover something we have been preparing, possibly unconsciously, to see and accept as a truth we must abide by. There may be boundaries that need to be put in place. Or maybe there is karmic retribution that must be endured. This is not to say today must be deeply emotional or challenging, but we might want to be prepared for something unexpected and possibly disrupting to occur. If we are vigilant and prepared, these sort of things can be faced with less shock and suffering.


And while we are mulling over the boundaries and emotional swings that may have started our day, there can be a growing uplifting feeling stirring within us. In fact, we may actually start recognizing how transformative our struggles can be. How valuable and important the pain we experience due to our own resistance to change actually is. This may be difficult to understand, but when we resist change, our problems can fester and become putrid stains on our lives, slowly burrowing a void that becomes increasingly challenging to emerge from. Once we vanquish our resistance, billows of fresh air come blowing in to fill our sails so we can continue our voyage with renewed hope and excitement again. This can feel like a powerful release of pressure that allows us to land safely in a new world of tranquility.

Moon in Scorpio trine Neptune in Pisces

Venus conjunct Jupiter in Taurus

Moon in Sagittarius sextile Pluto in Aquarius

Venus in Taurus sextile Neptune in Pisces

*Full Moon at 2° Sagittarius at 9:53am EDT*

*Venus ingresses Gemini*

Jupiter in Taurus sextile Neptune in Pisces


This is a remarkable day in celestial geometry and influence. There is a tremendous amount of change subtly, or not so subtly, flowing beneath the streets of our daily lives. We go about them often nonchalantly and unaware of the undertow, but when full reflection is afforded us, we can be astounded by what has transpired in the course of both a long period of time and a short period of time. When so many alignments and activations take place during a Full Moon, especially in Sagittarius, very big things are going on. We begin to reexamine the world we live in, we actually become excited to shake up whatever status quo we have been living under, and the clouds can seem to part to make way for fresh golden magic to shine down upon us.


It may not seem so, but we are always building a new life. And today we can see this fact as an inspirational revelation, as if understanding it for the first time. The pinnacle of our hopes and dreams can be imagined, and our confidence that those hopes and dreams can come true can flood through our veins today with deep reverence for our greatest potential. Taking stock of where we have been is called for, but we must not slide into old patterns or habits that depleted the feasibility of realizing our goals. We are looking ahead into the sparkling skies to see where we are going from here.


All that said, it is very possible that we can feel tremendous overwhelm today, especially if anything in our lives have been spiraling out of control, which may be true for many of us. This overwhelm has likely been building for some time, so it is probably not new to us, but we can rest assured that overwhelm passes just as the clouds pass. At this point, the pressure is beginning to release, which allows for action and progress to take place. If we hold fast to our visions, the doing can become more effortless and enjoyable, perhaps even igniting new passions and hopes to look forward to. Letting go of our own fears and resistance is the key to finding the trail we belong on.

Moon in Sagittarius square Saturn in Pisces

Moon in Sagittarius trine Mars in Aries

Moon in Sagittarius trine Chiron in Aries


Hot off the heels of such an impactful Full Moon yesterday, likely anticipating what lies in wait around every next corner we come upon, today offers an incredible opportunity to strike a sacred new match to light the fires that will guide us forward from here. There is excitement and verve to seek out the visions we have pondered throughout our lives. It really cannot be emphasized enough how much potential there is for us to grasp what we need and want to do with our time that is left to us. This may come after a spat with reality that shakes us awake, so we should be willing to wake up to what is possible.


Our pursuit of mastering what inspires us is seeping from every pore in our skin. Coupled with yesterday’s Full Moon, there is a charge to affect the change we desire deep within the sanctified pools of our emotional body. We know what must come and what must go, and our realization that time is fleeting and the future is uncertain starkly comes into sharp focus today. Where do we see ourselves on that path toward mastery? What steps do we need to take next? What smaller goals can we set for ourselves to make it where we hope to be in six months, a year, two years, five years? Let’s commit to our love of life and make it as beautiful as we possibly can!

Venus in Gemini trine Pluto in Aquarius

Moon in Sagittarius square Neptune in Pisces

*Jupiter ingresses Gemini*


“See here how everything leads up to this day. And it’s just like any other day that’s ever been.” Indeed these words of Robert Hunter’s ring true today. Our loving relationships are being brought up for discussion to discover how to enrich them and overcome the struggles that have plagued them over the years. Communication lines are open, revelations could be flying in our faces like sparks from an axe to a grindstone, and all we want our future to behold can be seemingly summarized succinctly, if not in words then in the love swirling between us.


The overwhelming confusion and chaos that has been in and out of our lives lately may resurface again today, but as is always the case, we must trust that this will flow away again and leave us at peace once more. Too much stuff, too many plans, too much responsibility, and too much to think about can act like an electrical storm crashing and booming all around us. But those dark storm clouds will pass and the glorious golden beams of love will again shine upon us. It would be good to engage in organizing a portion of our lives somehow somewhere today.


Speaking of glory, Jupiter’s ingress into Gemini today marks the beginning of a year-long journey in the sign that beckons us to learn, discover, travel, engage, lighten up, and find fun in socializing and even the trivialities of life. There is an influx of desire to learn exciting new things to satiate our appetite to become rounder and rounder individuals. How can we smooth out the sharp corners of our life? Who inspires us? What inspires us? Why do these things inspire us? Jupiter in Gemini is uplifting, exhilarating, and expanding our minds to dimensions we have yet to imagine. May we all bask in this inspirational transit that will hopefully inspire all beings to lighten up, learn how to embrace new things, and rezestify their lives.


The churning wheels of life can be formidable, but the rewards that unveil themselves usually make the entire struggle worth every moment. Often there is a preponderance to highlight the difficult and challenging parts of our lives, but if we begin to reframe our minds to pay closer attention to what intrigues us, inspires us, and imbues us with excitement, happiness, and serenity, we just might begin to notice a shift in the quality of our lives. Of course we will never avoid suffering and pain, that is part of the endurance of a life with desires, but if we seek to expand our capacity for hope, intrigue, and wonderment, the world will open its wings and lift us up and across the magical seas and landscapes of our wildest imagination.
