Saturday May 21, 2022

We are finally arriving at a place where we can begin to make connections between our ambition-driven effort and the need to understand the world around us — where our efforts are directed. Our actions and 'deeds' may be well intentioned and full of well developed 'purpose' but they take place in a world in which we have very little control. With enough awareness, we can begin to separate the value of our efforts from the way those efforts are received by the world around us. Blending determination, flexibility and a spirit of cooperation have been the lessons on the 'front burner' for the last few weeks and today represents a significant opportunity to display our understanding by presenting simple but obvious solutions. It is very likely that we will accomplish more by listening than talking today.



Weekly Summary

MAY 15 - MAY 21

"Whenever a thing is done for the first time, it releases a little demon."
— Emily Dickinson

The week begins with a powerful culmination of the current lunar cycle — the Full Moon in Scorpio (9:13 PM PDT 25° Scorpio/Taurus). This is the climax of the creative growing power and transformational change that was initiated by the Taurus New Moon at the end of last month, in important aspects to both Pluto and Saturn. The lessons before us are focused on channeling our strong ambitions by blending determination, flexibility, and a spirit of cooperation. It is the element of cooperation that seems to trip us up. However, by the end of the week, there are important opportunities to understand that we have to separate the value of our efforts from the way that those efforts are received by the world around us. The link — the connection — between our efforts and the world around us is found in the people with whom we are working directly. There are pitfalls to be found this week as Mars, ruling Jupiter in Aries, conjuncts Neptune, which continues the temptation to build idealistic, overly optimistic expectations while missing the value and meaning of the gifts that are to be found directly in front of us. As Mercury retrogrades back through Gemini and sextiles Jupiter, we have profound opportunities to recognize the value and importance of the connections that we make with others. The lesson to learn is that our individual efforts, in pursuit of personal ambitions, is meaningless and impotent without a recognition of our connections to those around us — those who have helped us and those who receive, recognize, and appreciate our efforts. The Sun arrives in Gemini on Thursday, ahead of Saturday's inferior conjunction with Mercury, which highlights the extended sextile to Jupiter. The influence of Jupiter provides us with an important capacity to stay flexible and philosophical about the outcomes of the effort that we put forth into the world around us. This week presents us with some sense of order and purpose which does not limit our ability to stay flexible. We have the chance to make grand impressions and gain the support of powerful allies through understanding the importance of making conscious connections to those with whom we come into contact.

Sunday's Venus-Chiron conjunction produces idealistic ambition that stirs our response to the transformed landscape that we find under the Full Moon in Scorpio. We need to find ways to 'keep the pump primed' on Monday, rather than simply absorb the beneficial fallout from the Full Moon. It is important to guard against any idealistic expectations that aren't fully grounded in 'reality'. Idealism may slip into self-righteousness on Tuesday. Frustration may encourage us to 'bend the rules'. Impatience and intolerance can encourage us to simply ignore the needs or rights of others. There is a bit of order and structure on Wednesday that helps us to focus on achievable goals. Increased activity requires increased responsibility. Relationship challenges may derail our progress on Thursday. Pushing, prodding or manipulating others is not how we can make lasting progress. The overall mood lightens on Friday. The Sun's arrival in Gemini brings increased awareness of our need to make strong connections with those around us. We may accomplish more by listening than talking on Saturday. We gain more capacity to blend ambition with flexibility and cooperation.

Sunday May 22, 2022

The Moon is VOC overnight, arriving in Pisces at 8:49 AM PDT this morning. The initial square to Mercury may produce some significant chaos and misunderstandings. However, Mercury moves back into Taurus early in the evening and forms a sextile to Mars. Our ability to recognize the value of the challenges and lessons that we have been through under the current lunar cycle begins to 'gel' in a very productive way. Although we may spend most of the day spinning our wheels with emotional confusion, we have the opportunity to end the day with increased perceptivity and insight surrounding the many of our challenges.



Weekly Summary

MAY 22 - MAY 28

"I want to be with those who know secret things or else alone."
— Rainer Maria Rilke

This week provides a true watershed of insight, perceptivity, and understanding but only if we are willing to 'show up' and follow the threads of intuitive wisdom that are offered. Mercury retrogrades back into Taurus and makes the second of three trines to Pluto, encouraging 'deep dives' into our concept of security and helping us to make the distinction between what we can and cannot control. Ultimately, this week assigns us an 'inside job' of clearing away frustrations and resentments so that we can fully appreciate the entirely transformed new landscape with which we are presented. Mars arrives in Aries on Tuesday, 'hand in hand' with the Moon as they both join the expansive, optimistic, enthusiasm of Jupiter in Aries. Meanwhile — on the other end of Aries — Venus struggles to escape the bounds of Aries in order to get 'home' to Taurus. Venus has not exactly had a smooth ride through Aries. The dramatic developments and transformations have produced challenges with regard to Venus' desire for peace and cooperation. Once Venus arrives on the Aries/Taurus cusp on Friday, there are increasingly promising opportunities to 'bless and release' the past while clearing away frustrations and resentments. As Mars approaches a conjunction with Jupiter, there is some desire to simply 'drop it and move on' but determination and persistence to pursue a course of reconciliation has the potential to ease the challenges of the next lunar cycle — beginning with next week's Gemini New Moon (May 30th 4:30 AM PDT 9° Gemini). Mercury will retrograde back into a square to Saturn and could lead us to get stuck in old habits and routines that we can perform 'by rote', instead of courageously exploring the new landscape and beginning to recognize our new and expanded abilities and capacities. The more we linger in self-deception and self-righteous indignation, the less we will be able to take advantage of the new connections and openings for communication that will be offered by the Gemini New Moon. The deeper and more fearlessly we dig into what we need in order to feel truly secure, the better we will be able to gather this week's blessings. We need to be willing to put our money where our mouth is and prepare to carry our insights into a transformed future and share those insights freely with others.

We may find a rather chaotic atmosphere on Monday. However, as we move through the day we have the opportunity to increase our perceptivity and find new insights about the challenges that we face. Further insights come in flashes on Monday but we may do better to simply observe, rather than try too hard to explain what we are seeing. There are especially valuable opportunities to find breakthroughs through meditation or self-exploration. The energy shifts dramatically on Tuesday afternoon when Mars and the Moon both move into Aries together to join Jupiter. We can begin to recognize that we have new capabilities that can serve us well within a dramatically changed landscape. Mercury retrogrades back to the second of three trines to Pluto on Wednesday. We have a chance to bless and release the past. However, a Venus-Pluto square may have us demanding more from others rather than exploring our own insights and embracing our own 'power'. We should remember that faith without works is dead on Thursday. The need for some kind of cooperation or teamwork shows us that we can do better when we work with others. There is increased persistence and determination to 'clear the air' on Friday. Nonetheless, some will hold tight to self-righteous points of view that don't leave room for reconciliation. Venus arrives in Taurus on Saturday and we may begin to find a new level of security or stability. However, it may be difficult to completely let go of the safety of the past in order to embrace the promise of better security by moving toward the future.

Monday May 23, 2022

Flashes of intuitive insight offer significant breakthroughs today. We'll do better to observe and contemplate, rather than spending too much effort trying to share our insights with others — who may be focused on their own intuitive show. The second of three Mercury-Pluto trines is now forming, which helps us to dig deep and reveal even more elements that help us to relate more effectively to the drastically transformed landscape. Nonetheless, our understanding is not likely to fall into place without actively pursing the information that is opening up to us. The opportunities for deeper understanding must be honored and embraced for us to find the gems of wisdom that are being offered here.
