2016-05 W21: Forecasts for Week 21 of 2016

Archive of Week 20 (W20)

We are the end of May and a series of retrogrades including Mercury Retrograde that has been with us for a few weeks (to a few months, depending on which retrograde we are talking about) will be ending.  Jupiter has moved direct, and Mercury Retrograde stations direct now.  Direct movement will be slow, and we will be in the “shadow” for a bit, but now is a good time to start launching truly new projects as opposed to reviewing and resurrecting old ones.

Those old projects either proved to be a good idea “after all” or they did not.  If they are good, stick with them and grow them.  But, if not, put them back on hold or discard them altogether.  The time is at hand to look at new things and new ideas.

The Taurus New Moooon perfected on May 6th, and we have a Full Moon (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 this 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.

May 2016 (Mars Out)

Week 21 (W21)

Sunday May 15th

Moon joins Jupiter in early morning hours (circa 3 AM CDT) and emphasizes the Grand Earth Trine that dominates the day.  For most people, this is a “feel good” day though earth and water signs benefit most.  Jim Shawvan notes an Opportunity Period for most of the day, and we agree.  Do keep in mind that Mercury is still retrograde (as are several other planets), so either avoid doing anything “too serious” or focus on older “on hold” projects that need to relaunch.  Much CAN be accomplished today, if that is your intent, but you must choose the right projects and keep in mind that some aspects may need to be revisited after Mercury retrograde ends (May 22nd) and possibly later this summer.

Monday May 16th

The opportunity period ends early and Moon is void until half past noon CDT.  Some people see yesterday’s window vanish and wonder “what happened?”  But you are smarter than that because you read these forecasts, right?  You did take complete advantage of yesterday’s window and leave nothing undone until today, didn’t you?

If not, no worry, other windows will open again “some day.”  But “getting things done” is tougher today than Sunday, and today just might have to be a cleanup day.

Tuesday May 17th

We face a decision today, a rather “loose” and open yod that dominates the afternoon.  You must make a decision, and we cannot tell you which path to pick except to pick one and do not look back.  You will be tempted to wonder “what might have been” if you had picked the other path.  Do not waste time doing that; it would not have been any better.

Wednesday May 18th

Accomplish what you can in the early morning; a loose T-Square will give you the “juice” to do that if you can focus yourself.  After a bit past 10 AM the Moon turns void and most of the rest of the day is best spent in review, cleaning house, or as a “day off.”  Do keep in mind that taking a “day off” midweek can be a good idea every so often.

Thursday May 19th

To be frank, this is a rather strange day.  Some people will have rather remarkable opportunities, truly gifts, come to them, but it does require intense work of some kind.  The “work” may be entirely focused on addressing your emotions in certain situations or it may be actual work: doing bookkeeping or conducting an experiment or some other kind of research.  Some people, as well, will be “losers” and this will be a bad day for them.

Health and educational issues will tend to come to the forefront.

This last full day of Taurus has a feeling of “fate” to it for many of us.

Friday May 20th

Sun moves into Gemini early Friday morning, and just in case you did not get the message yesterday, change is afoot.  Things are about to become different, very different, for some people (if they have not already).  The Full Moon is tomorrow (Saturday) and Mercury stations direct on Sunday.  Windows you thought would never close are now gone forever, but others will open.  Such is life.

Saturday May 21st

The Full Moon today gives us a glimpse of the future but with a few pieces missing.  Today is a very important day for some people.  Casual meetings that are supposed to be “fun” turn out to be critically important turning points.  Some people will meet their “life partner” today and it will seem like both and “accident” and “fate” at the same time!  Be assured that universe becomes “unlocked” for some people, and they are able to do certain things that transcend the ordinary.

For others, today will seem massively chaotic and like a day best spent at home.  Fire and air signs tend to prosper; unenlightened variants of earth and water wonder what happened to the window that was open this past Sunday.  Be assured that you will see even more change with tomorrow’s Mercury direct station and the events of next week.

Week 22 (W22)

Tuesday February 2nd 2016 (W06) Groundhog Day

Tuesday February 2nd 2016 (W06) Groundhog Day

This is an oddly annoying day in which we are not entirely certain what is wrong.  Multiple high order Hygeia aspects tells us we must focus on health and healthcare.  Unlike days with Chiron aspects, this is specifically health and healthcare without educational issues as an alternative.

Actually, Chiron does semi-square Pallas in the early morning hours, so education COULD be involved (but in a minor way if at all).  The semi-square gives us a sense of urgency as we search the house for the glasses that are in our shirt pocker.  If you can, avoid being caught in the fray and stay to the side watching the show.

Noting that this is “Groundhog Day,” we predict a sense of disappointment pervades the air.

We have a day with a void Moon in Scorpio (during the morning hours that the Groundhog will, or will not, see his shadow) that slips into Sagittarius during the morning hours and is influenced by the subtle of higher order aspects described.  We are probably still processing the events of yesterday as we inquire as to whether or not the Groundhog saw his shadow.  Take today off it you can, otherwise stick to routine and followup and what you were working on yesterday until at least some time past noon (U.S.) or 6 PM (UK/EU).

We also encourage you to read yesterday’s forecast (which covers some outer planet aspects that are still in effect today.

Libra Seeking Balance

winter dawn 500

Usually the Sagittarius Moon brings out the optimist in all of us but running afoul of Neptune and Saturn takes some of the shine off the day. Adding to the lowering atmosphere is a waning Sun-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn and a waxing Sun-Uranus square (exact tomorrow). All of this makes setting priorities challenging due to uncertainties as well as possible miscommunications due to Mercury at a standstill in reverse. Rather than attempting to start something new, focus on completing existing projects before Saturday’s New Moon.

The mantra for today and the rest of this week has to do with taking small, careful steps as if we are walking on icy sidewalks. Thankfully we have a solid Saturn influence to draw on . . . the Capricorn Sun and today’s Moon-Saturn conjunction. Too many obstacles out there we need to navigate around right now. Slow and steady is a winning strategy.

Note: Timing…

Let’s Goooooo! : Moon in Sagittarius

ASTRO ALL-STARZ

While the Moon indicates the tides of our emotions and collective moods, the sign it travels through provides the flavour.

With the Moon in Sagittarius the emotional mood becomes more upbeat. It’s time to put on the disco music or get out the skate board…at least just rock yr active wear.
Feeling social? Get out and about, smile at strangers and get to know new friends. This Moon joins party girl Venus in Sag to socially lubricate.
Yoga or any sort of philosophical study would be stimulating during this moon phase, be warned, it could get a little fiery but don’t back down, it’s all about getting up on your soap box and telling your truth. Or selling your truth as sometimes the case may be ; )   Sag is the master of spin after all.  If you have something you need to get others on board with, this…

Grandtrines

Wednesday, Moon enters Sagittarius early and lunar aspects dominate the day.  We are still processing what happened on Tuesday, and some events may spill over into what should otherwise be a quiet day.  For most people, today should be a “nose to the grindstone” day that is mostly about getting things done.  But, with the Moon waning, Mercury Retrograde, and the pyrotechnics of Tuesday, today might be more of a “cleanup day” than anything else.
