Greetings! I hope you are having a terrific weekend and that this week is more than ideal for everyone. The fast pace of this week is really fading off on this Sunday afternoon and we are currently having to sit with our stuff or face deeper issues that aren't very comfortable with the moon in Cancer and the Saturn/Chiron square. This week upcoming is rather light in terms of new planetary aspects and changes, so it's safe to say that this is a nice little breather where we can stop to catch our breath, look around at the scenery so that when the next flush of changes come in, we can accommodate successfully.
There is a hefty degree of planets still in retrograde. Pluto retrograde in Capricorn as well as Saturn retrograde in Sagittarius are forming a spiritual checkpoint. There is some stuff that we all desperately need to drop in order to keep moving on our path. This Saturn/Chiron square and the long retrograde motion of these two planets are causing us to see the patterns and cycles that we're really in and what would better serve us spiritually and emotionally.
On Wednesday, May 10th, we begin a new year and a half cycle as the North Node of the Moon in Leo and the South Node of the Moon in Aquarius. This is where we get away from the birds-eye-view objective perspective and drop right down deep into our hearts. If you are not living from your heart and checking in with what you really long for each day, your heart will let you know.
On Monday, May 1st, the moon will still be in Cancer. This is a time where there is a tendency to indulge in lethargy and chocolate and if that is what you need, take what you need. We'll be feeling much more productive later in the week when the moon comes into Virgo.
Mercury moves direct on Wednesday! Any communication or contracts surrounding worth and value, including self-esteem, will be all cleared up and read to go. There have been things we've been reconsidering about how to maximize our work and our time and when Mercury comes out of its shadow phase we will be able to see the implementation of it all. The moon will be in Leo on Wednesday, a time where self-expression is really important, so maybe start to write some of these things down or running them by trusted comrades. The Sun in Taurus will be making a very harmonious aspect to Neptune in Pisces, where we may find healing touch to be the most comforting thing of all.
On Friday, May 5th, the rays of the Sun in Taurus won't reach Jupiter retrograde in Libra as it forms a quincunx (150*) aspect. This means that this may be a day where our ego ad higher Self are not in the same place. There may be a little bit of inner anxiety about what hasn't been done as the moon moves into Virgo.
On Sunday, May 7th, the moon will move into Libra, allowing for Sunday to be very special for socializing and getting out and about especially because late on Sunday night the moon and Jupiter will coincide and Jupiter allows us to unravel and expand around the ones we love.
All in all, this week is a pit stop in a year full of crazy, so really rest, take a nice break from the craziness and enjoy. <3
Love and light,
