Week Beginning Friday, May 20th

While the Moon is waning take the time to finish up projects and objectives started at the New Moon earlier this month.  We are moving into Eclipse Season come June.  In fact, we have three eclipses back to back which is fairly unusual and happens when we are finishing up one set of eclipses and moving into another area of growth. 

We will all feel some rapid movement this summer and some of it in unexpected ways.  Eclipses are meant to quickly clear out that which is no longer working or useful and humans can "feel" jolted out of their comfort zones.  Trust the process.

Meaningful growth aspects occur this week.  Friday is a powerful day for conscious action and thought, communcations and planning, as Mercury conjuncts Mars and both trine the planet of the soul Pluto.  Venus lends a helpful and healing hand as she sextiles Chiron. 

The Sun then shifts into the intellectual and communicative sign of Gemini on Saturday as Venus trines Pluto which can be an auspicious time for money and deal making.  Feelings of ove and affection deepens today too.

Monday brings a very special connection between the ying and yang planets Venus and Mars as they are hooking up in earthy and sensual Taurus.  Animal magnetism and love at first sight?  A uniting and building time for relationships.

ARIES:  Your ruler Mars is busy this week in very supportive ways.  Your income and self-esteem may receive a boost as some fated events unfold and urges you to engage deeply with your ethics and value systems.   Plan some time with your sweetie on Monday - amore!

TAURUS:  Venus is dancing with some powerful players this week and she is operating just fine, thank you very much from your sign.  Friday is significant as Mars and Mercury conjunct in your sign and both trine Pluto.  Publishing, marketing, travel and validating life events may bring you empowering and healing moments as your understanding deepens.  Make Monday a tribute to love, creativity and abundance as Venus conjuncts Mars in your sign.  Focus grows in your house of earned income and movable goods.

GEMINI:  Your solar cycle begins anew with the Sun's shift into your sign.  You are still working behind  the scenes on some private matters and are still in need of additional rest but the energy is shifting and you're feeling better.  Your mind is clear and consise on Friday, a good time to initiate talks and commercial deals.  You are the recipient of another round of Eclipses in June so rest while you can!

CANCER:  Your associations and friendships are your slice of heaven this week and really come through for you.  Friendships deepen as some new folks enter onto the scene.  You may find a deeper level of caring is expressed  with a special friend that perhaps wants to be more?  Expect to feel another growth spurt coming as a final Eclipse takes place in your sign on July 1st.

LEO:  The Sun shifts into a friendlier section of the sky this week bringing more focus into your friendships and association.  You've been working and planning towards your career and direction in life.  Now,  it's time for a little reprieve from the planning and to enjoy more social time. Focused energy and good luck comes your away around the 25th which may see you planning a trip in the near future.

VIRGO:  Affairs and travels of the mind are heightened this week.  Set your sights on fresh horizons and make it so!  Vacation planning, children's educational pursuits and animal magnetism are very well supported...grab those tickets and go.  Your attention slowly starts shifting into your work and community roles as the week unfolds.

LIBRA:  Shifts, changes, consolodation, money, business deals, and the endings that have taken place to provide for new beginnings surfaces to the light of day as you are aligning with these changes and feeling empowered.  Venus is front and center lending a helping hand to your day to day routines and then again on Monday to further your finances and sex life.  The Sun shifts into fellow sign Gemini pulling your mental focus out of life's depths and into a sunnier and broader view.

SCORPIO:  Some deeply felt and empowered communications and understandings come your way on Friday when you two co-rulers hook up in a supportive trine.  Add to that Mercury, the planet of mental processing and you may even have a new contract or agreement to bolster both your mood and pocketbook.  Monday can be an extra special day with partners.

SAGITTARIUS:  Your work and money houses are well starred this week.  Your dedication is starting to pay off, literally!  Special happenings can occur between you and another (co-worker, client?) on Monday when Mars and Venus unite.  The Sun slips into your parternship sector this week shifting some of your focus onto  the important others in your life and business partnerships.

CAPRICORN:  Life is starting to make more sense to you and events this week will only heighten that perception.  Your creative juices are flowing and powerful communications are taking place which will increase your sense of confidence and well-being.  Some of the players?  Children, a lover, and co-creative consiprators.  Beautiful!

AQUARIUS:  Home is your haven and your confidence is building surrrounding discussion and decisions that need to be made.  Trust your instincts as they are right on the money both literally and figuratively.  If you are in the market for buying or selling a home you have a big ole green light and please know that your timing is perfect.  Relationships with others deepen and intensify in a very satisfactory way.

PISCES:  If you have been going through a period of questioning yourself and the sometimes contradictory exchanges that have arisen with others, look to this week as a strongly validating time!  More supportive  interactions flow your way with the important other's in your life.  You are on the right track, your instincts were correct and now you get the delicious external validation from those who count.  Trust that your power of creative communication is off the chart this week!

Week beginning Friday, May 13th

Jean will be serving up some 15 minute Astro Mini Sessions ($20) at Kelly's Tavern on Wed., May 18th from 6-8 p.m. in Nagshead, NC

Earth meets Water with the Full Moon in Scorpio on the 17th opposing the Sun in Taurus.  

Mercury retrograde is now out of it's "shadow" the point in which it retrograded in April.  This was a power house retrograde period for many....both at the global and personal levels.  We received super focused lessons wherever Aries falls in the personal chart and we now have the opportunity to both "process" and "apply" the growth and learning.

Both Venus and Mercury join the Sun in Taurus on the 15th supporting us to access both mental and emotional integration surrounding our Mercury Retro experience.  Taurus is an earth sign that is patient, determined, comfort oriented and at times stubborn.  A very different energy experience than the "smash and grab" changes that April brought.  Now, we glean understanding and a practical sense of what our "next steps" should be.

ARIES:  Changes have arrived swiftly injecting you with a fresh perspective and sense of self.  Some of the energy traffics flows out of your neighborhood and  moves into the adjoining town Taurus.  This town is interested in planning, getting clear on what you value and how to better manage your resources and financial flow.  The Full Moon further highlights your awareness of resources - both, yours and others.

TAURUS:  Your ruling planet Venus is bringing you gifts of outward appreciation after a month of experiencing at times, a painful sort of self-inventory process.  Mercury arrives hand in hand with Venus to hep you gain a conceptual footing of what appeared to be an endless experience of self-doubt and questioning.  But, insights were given and received that will serve you well as you embark on the next leg of your journey. Others in your life are the focus at the Full Moon.

GEMINI:  Friends may not have been as available to you over the past few weeks.  A semblance of order is re-established as talks, exchanges and awareness resumes.  You are entering a quieter month for the inherent purpose of digesting and integrating on a "very" personal level, all that has transpired in the realms of goals and associations.  Tag June as your full-on "green light" for manifesting your desires and making things happen.  

CANCER:  The Moon grows Full in the area of your world representing self-expression, children, and matters of the heart.  Expect to gain some insights into these personal areas of experience.  The monumental shifts and "accommodating" of those who hold sway over your career abates somewhat.  The grounded Taurus energy works well with your sign and represents increased energy and interaction with friends, group activities and "next steps" in your personal desires and goals.

LEO:  Expanding your mind and the possibilities of "what can be" continues but an added focus builds around your career and life direction.  Mars and Venus shift into Taurus (where your ruler the Sun is already ensconced) to help you both attract what you want and to provide the energy to get it. Your desires have the potential to conflict with those who have authority over your situation so diplomacy is suggested. The Full Moon points to closure surrounding your home, parents and living situation.

VIRGO:  Perhaps some surprising information has surfaced over the past month regarding your commitments and loyalties to others, your finances, and even unexpected "endings" in your life.  Now, you have the time and space to begin to process all that you have experienced and to start making plans for the unfoldment of fresh beginnings.  The Full Moon highlights a few days of busy activity regarding correspondence and communications.

LIBRA:  Your ruler Venus and her counterpart Mars roll into Taurus on the 15th.  You've probably experienced the forming of new partnerships as well as the release of a partnership or two that is no longer viable.  In addition to the input/output, this month is a time for finalizing financial/business agreements, departures, and applying practical planning around finances.  The Full Moon highlights your movable goods,  your values and earned income.

SCORPIO:  How the inner you meets up with your outer world has been an ultra intense course surrounding your sense of reality.  The "outer" reality encompasses such areas as your work, fellow employees, your day to day habits and your health.  Given this fresh experiential knowledge how do you plan to implement these needs within your important relationships?  Luna growing Full in your sign will provide you with some strong clues.  Partnerships are increasingly your personal mirror this month.

SAGITTARIUS:  Perhaps you are relieved that the hyper-diligent focus of the past few weeks is shifting from the area of children, labors of love and matters of the heart.  No doubt you experienced some very interesting insights and shifts.  The next few weeks indicate an increasing interest around your work and health space.  The Moon grows Full on Tuesday highlighting the need for balance between service to others and time spent in restful solitude.

CAPRICORN:  Your sense of emotional well-being may not have been a restful space for you over the past few weeks.  Changes, tempers, affectionate nourishment, your domicile and parents may have given cause for concern, anger as well as the deepening of love...whew!  Your fellow earth sign Taurus is providing a reprieve and opportunity for clear planning surrounding the affairs of your children and heart driven projects.  Embrace this grounding and determined energy.  The Full Moon highlights emotional interactions with friends and groups.

AQUARIUS:  With Mercury and Uranus gracing your communications and all things of "the mind" sector is it any wonder that your internet and phone connections have not blown up from sheer activity and usage?  Well, ok..all joking aside, it's been an intensive time for conceptual exchanges and correspondence.  Mars and Venus are joining the Sun in your area of "home."  Home equates to your emotional "home," your physical "home," and those folks who represent "home" for you.  Enjoy this dynamic and grounding energy.  Your career and reputation are highlighted at the Full Moon.

PISCES:  What do you value?  Material comfort, strong emotional ties, money, security, and consistency?  All dynamic and important questions that contribute to your own sense of  personal value and what you share with the world.  The Taurus energy prods you to process these deeply personal inquiries and gain a stronger footing.  Your world gets busier with personal and professional exchanges and communications.  Luna's Fullness asks "what is the meaning of life?"

Thursday May 12th at 7 a.m.  Streams Live 

Riding freshly on the heels of the New Moon in Taurus (May 3rd) we have the wind at our backs for new starts in finances and resource planning.  How people go about getting "what they want" becomes more practical and contained then the past 6 weeks when Mars transited Aries.  Aries wants what it wants when it wants it and diplomacy is not his strong suite.  Mars leaves the ego centered Arian energy and moves into Taurus on the 12th.  Desires become more security oriented and a patient determination is in evidence. 

Circle Wednesday the 11th when expansive, heart-felt offerings unfold as Mercury conjuncts both Jupiter and Venus.   A good time for commercial endeavors, financial opportunities and partnership alliances.  Venus will join Mars in Taurus on the 15th.

ARIES:  Your ruler shifts into the area of life ruling income, material assets and self-worth.  Your energy gets more grounded and financial planning is strongly encouraged.  Good things come your way on the 11th.

TAURUS:  Happy Birthday Bull.  You are beginning to feel ready to greet the world once again.  You will feel more energetic from the 12th onward and Venus joins Mars in your sign on the 15th paving the way for attracting what you need to feel secure and appreciated. 

GEMINI:  Activity with friendships and groups dissipates a notch with Mars moving into your behind the scenes sector.  You are more apt to seek solitude in your work and some much needed downtime is on the agenda.  Your ruler hugs two very positive planets on the 11th suggesting a propitious time for commerce and new alliances.  

CANCER:  Career demands abate when Mars marches into the area of your world ruling over friendships and goals you hold for yourself.  You are more "interested and engaged" with your associations in your world over the next 6 week period.  Some positive career or community "strokes" may come your way on the 11th.

LEO:  Focus continues to build in your work and public reputation sector over the coming month.  Your ambition is stimulated and you may be pondering a shift into self-employment.  There may be some heated exchanges with authority figures now as ego energies are stirred up.  A good month for self-promotion.

VIRGO:  A time when you may feel exceedingly aligned with your point of view but see this as an energetic injection fueling your ideals and ideas.  An opportune time to involve yourself with study, teaching, travel and mind expanding activities.  A financial opportunity or partnership may come your way around the 11th.

LIBRA:  You are very aware of your need for support.  Shared income, resources and property may be conflict prone with Mars move into your 8th house of "all things shared."  There may be some swift endings in your life in order to make way for a new lifestyle that is important and deeply connected with your inner desires.  Venus can bring new financial and intimate opportunities your way when she enters this area on the 15th.

SCORPIO:  Your relationships can be very dynamic with Mars movement into your 7th house of partnerships.  Fresh starts are indicated with the New Moon and you will be quick to handle any conflicts that arise.  Positive situations surrounding money and work can grace your day on the 11th.

SAGITTARIUS:  Your day to day work and routines will speed up with Mars occupying your work sector.  Your ego and determination are united in your efforts.  A great time to start a sustainable exercise routine.  An offering from a friend may be in the cards on the 11th.

CAPRICORN:  Play and pleasure become more of your focus over the next 6 weeks.  You feel "free" to be you and to express yourself unabashedly.  This month is the start of a year long process intended to help you engage with your labors of love through increased self-confidence and expansion.  Love matters heat up.

AQUARIUS:  Domestic projects receive an energy injection.  Physical work around the house increases and you have the energy to tackle home improvement repairs and moves.  You may feel more protective of your emotions during this time as any feelings of insecurity or vulnerability are especially sensitive now.  This very area is set for expansion and comfort over the next year.

PISCES:  Your beliefs and ideas are important to you now.  And because of this you are more prone to heated exchanges.  This is the beginning of a 13 month period when you are expressing yourself more openly and enthusiastically engaging in intellectual tasks and projects.  Please be careful driving during this Mars transit as you can tend to move about your world too quickly.
