Horoscope for the week of May 5.8 - 5.14 || Root down, open your heart and get ready for the North N
Greetings wise ones!
The week prior has been a nice chance to stop and catch our breath before another burst of crazy, great, terrible and different energies in the chaotic week ahead. This week seems to peak on Wednesday, building up on Monday and Tuesday and then dropping off just slightly over the weekend. Whenever there's a bunch of stirring transits, the best policy is to surrender any control that you think you have and to let your viewpoint expand beyond the matrix of what you know. This is not the week to cling to old energies, patterns and old stories you tell yourself. This is the week to allow change to happen around you knowing your feet are on the ground and it is okay because from that place you can see other possibilities outside a narrow frame of view.
Mercury went direct last week in Aries nearby to Uranus which is very helpful for decisive and swift action and communication that needs to happen. Mercury coming direct in Aries looks like expelling from the mouth things we've been dying to say and making final decisions on things that were rather wishy-washy as Mercury was in a bit of a fog. We've gotten some stuff off of our chests that may have surprised even us and now we can look towards the future.
Jupiter has been retrograde in Libra, the sign of relationships. This has been continually expanding our need for connection and an attention to the quality of the folks we're connecting with. Jupiter's plight in retrograde has been hit by Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn at different points which have meant real surprises and power dynamics within the context of relationships, especially as Venus recently made it out of her shadow phase also in Aries. This is a time where we are really staking out our personal freedom and wanting to connect with the people that can handle all of our many pieces and parts. Once Jupiter moves into Scorpio later this year, it will be a time where we have these relationships we secured from Jupiter's movement through Libra and we will be able to show these people our soul and we will all collectively have to be more vulnerable than is comfortable for some.
Saturn has been retrograde in Sagittarius has been making positive connections to Mercury and Uranus in Aries, a conjunction that will become exact this week (on the same day as the full moon nonetheless) and will be making positive aspects towards the North Node in Leo! This is a time where we've gotten almost all of our shit together during the North Node in Virgo transit and our path has been organized and rearranged and now the North Node will move into Leo where we'll be unpacking the stuff of our heart. Saturn will be supporting us in a practical way while Mercury and Uranus will be boosting our insights about what it is that our heart wants. Things are about to shift in major ways, for better or worse (the choice is yours!) in the next two weeks. Make it yours and don't be afraid to drop down into your heart.
On Monday, the Sun in Taurus is making a harmonious trine aspect to Pltuo retrograde in Capricorn, not so subtly affirming where we've been putting our energy, value, worth and power. If we've been placing our power in the hands of another when Uranus is in Aries, we'll be thwarted by the universe. However, if we are setting our sights on what actually serves us and focus on quality in exchanges of money and relationship, we'll be blessed.
Wednesday is a big day for us! Mercury will be making an exact conjunction to Uranus, allowing for our logical mind and the part of us that innovates to come together for big intuitions and sudden changes of direction and will be positively aspecting the North Node which moves into Leo on this brilliant Wednesday! The North Node in Leo is all about self-expression, straight from the heart. A birds-eye-view is no longer going to work and we won't be able to detach from our emotions and disconnect from our truth anymore. Find a Leo for a doorway into how to handle this transit.
The moon moves into Scorpio, calling for a deep dive into our subconscious mind, maybe making us a bit more obsessive emotionally about situations that have bits and pieces of our power. This moon in Scorpio becomes full with the Sun in Taurus at 5:42 PM! The moon in Scorpio can be very wise if it transcends its shadow and since Pluto has been retrograde in Capricorn for a few weeks now, we should have already been looking at our shadow, so this may be a time where you evaluate how much more work you have yet to do. The Sun is in Taurus, the sign of material fruition, so stop to notice if the personal growth you've either chosen to make or been forced by the universe to make have shown any meaningful improvements in your life.
On Thursday, Mars in Gemini will be making a square aspect to Neptune in Pisces. This is a contentious aspect where we may unconsciously effort in a direction that isn't productive for us. Either the rose colored glasses are on in regards to a job or a person or a group in your life, or you're not being honest with yourself about how much you can realistically take on. Make sure that when you communicate with folks that they hear you and understand you and try not to gossip on this Thursday.
On Friday, the moon moves into Sagittarius, which can cause us to feel spiritual or positive generally, but because this moon in Sagittarius will be opposite Mars in Gemini, we may feel a little bit agitated under the surface about minor things and more ready to escape from the menial nature of every day life. Mars in Gemini makes an exact trine to Jupiter retrograde in Libra, so a great place to take that agitation is your people. The people who will hear you out and react accordingly. Never entertain relationships where you have to censor yourself.
On Sunday, spontaneous and karmic realizations may come about as the North Node in Leo will be making a lovely exact trine to Mercury in Aries. This is a good time to listen to signs and synchronicities from the universe and to allow that to guide your thought process about whatever you're dealing with. If you're unsure about something, close your eyes and feel what your heart really wants and it won't lead you in the wrong direction.
