Morning Star: Astrology for May 29 through June 2, 2017

Monday, May 29, 2017

Overnight, Mars completed his opposition to Saturn just prior to the Cancer Moon making an anxious square with Uranus. This all went down in a window of about 4 minutes between 2:56 AM EDT and 3:00 AM. We've been dealing with Mars waxing toward this opposition for while. I'm glad to see it come to an end. However, with the grand crescendo of that energy, the collective mood is nervous. It feels a lot like backdraft to me. Hopefully it passes without incident. Yet, I can't dismiss the possibility of some ugly anxious-making stuff. At 5:32 AM, the Moon makes a watery trine with Chiron and reaches Void status until entering Leo at 8:13 AM.

The rest of the day, the Moon spends waxing through Leo working toward a sextile with our Gemini Sun which perfects tonight at 11:18 PM. We are prone to assessing personal effects and discussing it with friends. It does seem to get lighter following the release of pressures from Mars/Saturn.

Our Fire Moon makes a sextile with Jupiter in Libra at 6:57 AM. It's active and jubilant offering a chance at both socialization and movement. The active/social component is accentuated due the fact that Mars in Gemini waxes toward a sextile with Uranus in Aries (10:40 PM). As the pressure from Saturn continues to wane, Mars is out of the gate and moving toward brighter days. The Moon births optimism and creativity. However, she does square common sense Mercury in Taurus at 2:48 PM, which brings her to ground for a moment.
The night goes out with a fiery trine between the Leo Moon and Venus in Aries. Yes, the alley cats will be wailing. Indulge in the pleasure of your choosing.

Early this morning the Leo Moon is stabilized and given an agenda for the day by way of a trine to Saturn at 4:24 AM. We wake up satisfied and spry for action as she then moves in to create a trine with Uranus at 6:51 AM. This is a good day for getting down to business, networking in effort to achieve our goals and being physically active and/or creative. That inclination repeats as the Moon finds Mars in Gemini by 7:15 AM. Get up. Make a plan and run with it.

The “making a plan” energy is backed up by an Earthy trine between Mercury in Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn. We can really get down to the nitty gritty in our efforts if we get started early. The Moon is Void after the sextile with Mars until entering Virgo at 12:17 PM. Perhaps the last leg of the Leo Moon brings us the plan and the inspiration. Then, when the Moon jumps into practical Virgo, we get busy following through with our plans. Progress can certainly be made steadily and without skipping steps within this day. Many will be inclined to engage in such and THIS astrologer encourages you to do so as we step out of the last day of May. As the pressure of our First Quarter waxes in tomorrow, you'll thank yourself (or should) for any progress you make today. Don't be overly self-critical if you are not as far along as you think you should be. Every step counts. Also, know if you want to get to the bottom of something, suss out the root of fears/paranoia or embark on deep study of some kind...Mercury in trine to Pluto provides you the avenue for that. Then, when the Moon clicks into Virgo, you can find practical use for that information.

Today offers a mixed bag of treats. We begin with the First Quarter Moon perfecting between our Mercury ruled signs of Gemini and Virgo. Gemini has many interests and can be easily distracted by moving from task to task without completely any of them. Virgo, however, has a more practical plan. Yet the friction here will be between wanting to flit from one thing to another as the Moon is bent on follow through.

However, Venus in Aries waxes toward a fire trine with Saturn in Sagittarius at about noon helping us to set personal goals and lead us to our own true North in regard to how to address this day. We may wear down quickly, though, as our industrious Moon waxes into an opposition with Neptune at 2:16 PM. It's been a busy few days. Maybe a little midday catnap won't hurt a thing. I can't really think of a time when it ever did.
At 11:11 PM, our goals are more deeply assessed and the emotional body restores as the Moon meets Pluto by trine. This can denote deep and restorative sleep. Focus on matters under the immediate surface or the ability to face our own fears about how astutely we can progress toward our goals.

Friday, June 2, 2017

This morning, the Virgo Moon makes a nice Earth trine with her ruler, Mercury in Taurus. This is grounded, practical and has a plan! Just follow through step by step with your business and don't try to take off running toward too many things at once. Mars perfects in square to Chiron at 6:14 AM (watch your toes and be careful around equipment with sharp/moving lawnmowers!!).
The mood does become a bit more dour as the Moon squares Saturn in Sagittarius at 11:22 AM. Hey, Virgo, no one said you had to get it all done in one day. Progress is progress! Keep stepping toward that long-term goal and don't be so self-critical!

But...that throbbing toe...that Mars/Chiron, remains a factor for the rest of the day. This can show up as physical illness, injury, allergy, becoming aware of bias or falling prey to matters of addiction. It could also mean running up against chinks in the armor of our goals. Virgo Moon can both prioritize and triage. If you are sick, be a good self-nurse because your health needs to come first. If you are wrestling with self-criticism and doubt, know that's your Chironic job. Deal with what presents as needing dealt with. That's your job even if it is not what you originally intended for this day. The Moon opposes Chiron and squares Mars through the 5 o'clock hour before going Void...what would Jimmy Buffet say about that?

The Moon remains Void until entering social Libra at 8:05 PM and Venus meets Uranus overnight as the Sun waxes toward Jupiter. Tomorrow, our Libra moon joins in....I smell...a party! The work whistle has wailed. Shift from industry to entertainment and enjoy!
