2016-05 W20: Forecasts for Week 20 of 2016

Archive of Week 19 (W19)

We are in the middle of May as well as a series of retrogrades including Mercury Retrograde, and “things” are likely to be interesting until at least after May 22nd (arguably later because of the other retrogrades in play also).  (Clarissa has written a great piece on the Mercury Retrograde.  And you can find more about these periods for the rest of the year here.  This page may also be useful.)  The Taurus New Moooon perfected on May 6th, and we will have a Sagittarius Moon / Gemini Sun on May 21st (a day after Sun moves into Gemini).  Let’s be clear: for better or worse, “things” will change with that lunation and the accompanying Mercury direct station.

School is out, and has been out, for most students, and that particular weekend (May 21/22) marks the true beginning of “summer” for anyone who follows the academic year.  But astrological summer, the official beginning of “summer,” does not begin until the Summer Solstice on June 20th (which also has another full moon).  The retrograde station of Chiron on June 27th and direct station of Mars on June 29th will mark another significant shift.  We will cover these events in more detail as they near, but keep in mind these critical dates as you set plans for vacations, trips, meetings, and so forth.

Some time in the next few days we will delete the older May predictions and add newer ones, so please do check back.  We are not gone, but we are not checking in EVERY day, either.

One final note: we know that the “Live Traffic Feed” in the sidebar is not working correctly, but the problem is not on our end.  We want to give the provider at least a few more weeks before we remove it altogether.  It has been with us since the beginning (2008), and we hate to remove it.  (But, if it continues to be broken, then we will be forced to do the inevitable.)

May 2016 (Mars Out)

Week 20 (W20)

May 8th

Today is Mothers Day, and a (very loose) Grand Cross is arguably in play.  “Things” may be a bit weird with some “things” grinding to a halt (“full stop!”), and others suddenly becoming ready for launch.  Look beyond the chaos for the opportunity, and launch whatever needs to be launched today.  That could include being kind / helpful / generous to your mother / someone else’s mother / a woman who wishes she had been someone’s mother or someone similar.  Look beyond the obvious for the opportunity to be a decent human being worthy of having had someone to care for you when you could not care for yourself.

May 9th

Jupiter stations direct today.  Some of you have been feeling this for a few days or maybe longer.  You really feel it if you, or someone close to you, is clergy (or a particularly spiritual person), a lawyer or otherwise involved with the legal system, or someone who works in higher education (or someone who once worked in one of those systems, including those who are retired or disabled).

Jupiter is associated with centaurs and kindness to animals can be a good idea today.  Consider watching Earthlings if you have never developed a sense of decency or kindness towards animals.  (Warning: “Earthlings” is not for the faint of heart.  It can be very difficult to watch!)

May 10th

Venus (Taurus) trines Jupiter (Virgo) today, and the Moon is very active.  Retrograde Mercury (Taurus) also trines the North Node (Virgo), and the outer planets are quiet.  Given the consideration that five planets are retrograde, much can be accomplished today particularly short term objectives that may be part of resurrected projects from the past.  Most people tend to benefit from today although earth signs (and water) tend to benefit the most.  This is likely the best “get things done” day of the week and maybe the entire Mercury Retrograde period.

May 11th

Most of the work day in the Western Hemisphere is void, and Venus Quincunx Saturn clearly marks that yesterday’s window of opportunity has closed and this is mostly an “off day” for most people.  Jim Shawvan marks this particular lunar void as an “opportunity period,” but we still think it is a risky period.  Avoid major commitments today if at all possible and stick to routine.

Hygeia stations direct, and issues involving health and healthcare will come to the forefront for some people.  Also, Mars sesquiquadrate Uranus in early hours tomorrow makes both today and tomorrow potentially dangerous.  Do not do anything rash in traffic, and avoid saying words that you may not be able to take back later.

May 12th

Today is a mixed bag but more good than bad and certainly better than yesterday. Today is not as good as Tuesday but much better than yesterday. Retrograde Mercury (Taurus) trines Pluto (Capricorn) and something comes back to us.  This could be an old project or it could be a lost (and important) object.  Quadrinoviles involving Vesta (bright ideas but typically more for police / military) are present this evening.

Write down those fleeting ideas and know that they can be useful later, possibly as the planets move direct.  Late evening has annoyances, and new parents may have a baby that cannot be consoled.  With yesterday’s Hygeia station consider healthcare for the young one if any doubt whatsoever exists regarding their status.

Mars sesquiquadrate Uranus in early hours makes both yesterday and today potentially dangerous.  Do not do anything rash in traffic, and avoid saying words that you may not be able to take back later.

May 13th

Retrograde Mercury and Venus join and later Venus trines Pluto.  This is all mostly benevolent, but a lunar void tells us to stick to routine after noon.  Previously planned events (and dates) may not work out.  Your date this evening might be a “no show.”  Try not to be too angry as this may have involved events beyond the control of the other person.  Stick to routine if you can, and have fun with whomever is present.

May 14th

Early morning hours are tainted by a lunar square to Mars which is wonderful for athletes and can be good for police officers but is miserable for most of the rest of us.  It is short term and will pass.  Sun sextile Chiron dominates the day bringing up issues involving healthcare, teaching, and mentors.  While all of those will not apply to you, likely one of them will apply.  Today and tomorrow the mutable T-Square we have been discussing (refer to our New Moon analysis) is activated by Moon in Virgo.  Expect irritations and channel that energy into useful accomplishment.
