Morning Star: Daily Astrology for Saturday May 23, 2015

This morning we wake up to the Leo Moon making a nice active sextile with Mars in Gemini at 9:16 AM. This motivates us to get up and get out in the world or at least gives us the oomph we need to move around a bit. Hopefully the weather is nice in most areas so folks can enjoy being outside. There is plenty of activity going on this weekend in the US with the first official Summer holiday upon us. There are festivals, cookouts, parades and community events to attend. Families are gathering in light of the extended weekend and many will be relaxed and ready to sink into that type of light socialization.

By 5:35 PM, the Moon is in sextile to Mercury Rx and everyone is busy catching up on what has occurred since they last had a chance to visit. This is light, chatty and friendly if not a little playful. Our Sun is still within orb of an opposition to Saturn, so even if we are enjoying reconnecting with some folks we don't get to see daily, we are encouraged to lean upon our grown up selves and maintain a sense of responsibility and boundary while doing so. In other words, reminisce, but don't regress to toddler status. However, a little play never hurt anyone. This is a great day for outdoor games like volleyball, basketball, badminton or horseshoes (weather permitting, of course). It's also great for a bit of hiking, biking or anything conducive to being active. But, it's even better for just gathering together and collectively shaking off some heavier dust in favor of a bit of lightness and fun.

The rest of the day, the Moon waxes toward a nice conjunction with Jupiter (midnight). This will reactivate both the Yod with Pluto Rx, Jupiter and Mercury Rx as well as the 2nd Yod with Pluto Rx, Chiron and Jupiter. There's room for healing and changing your point of view (potentially upon past events). Allow yourself some wiggle room in that and let your perspective be flexible. Overall, give yourself a break and enjoy this day. Tomorrow the Moon is Void all day following a trine with Uranus at 6:50 AM. However, on Monday, more harsh weather moves in and the sky becomes a little more “tight” under our First Quarter Moon. Let's worry about that when it gets here. Overall, give yourself a break, get out there and enjoy this day.
