Language of the Soul Astrology
Monday, May 24 – Moon in Scorpio
Relationships are challenges when Juno (asteroid of marriage and partnership) gets pressure from both Venus and Mars, indicating a pattern of differing value systems, as well as the need to overcome defensiveness and anger. The Scorpio moon adds to the emotional intensity, making this another potentially challenging day.
Tuesday, May 25 – Moon in Scorpio – Moon enters Sagittarius at 4:38 pm
Yesturday’s bad feelings linger into this morning when the Sun and Mars slug it out in a battle of wills. With the Moon still in Scorpio, things continue to be emotional and intense. It’s really a matter of trusting our own inner voice and aligning with truth and wisdom. When the Moon takes flight into Sagittarius at 4:38 pm, we feel a whole lot lighter—more buoyant, optimistic, inspired. Somehow our faith is renewed, and we begin to feel a new hope that everything is going to turn out okay.
Wednesday, May 26 – Full Moon in Sagittarius 1:13 am – Total Lunar Eclipse
The Lunar Eclipse at 5 degrees of Sagittarius is at a perigee (the closest proximity to Earth) and so the moon will appear much larger than usual. It’s also a total lunar eclipse, known as the Blood Moon, and it packs a lot of intensity and major shifts, especially for those with Sun, Moon, or Rising in the mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces). Jupiter, the ruling planet of Sagittarius is the largest in the solar system, so it is quite fitting that this moon will appear really, really BIG! Luna will also be trine Chiron at the eclipse (perfecting at 11:29 am). Some astrologers might dub this the “Healing Moon,” enabling us to find inspiration and meaning in even the worst of circumstances. A Moon-Saturn sextile mid-day could provide some stability and grounding as we search for faith and truth in the myriad of our life’s experience.
Thursday, May 27 – Moon in Sagittarius – Moon enters Capricorn at 4:23 pm
It is the day after a big full moon, and the energies are still running high when the Sag Moon opposes Venus and Mercury in Gemini, squares Neptune in Pisces, while Venus is in square to Neptune, forming a mutable T-square! Yikes! Did you get all that? Fast forward through the technicalities, and what we have is a lot of disorientation and tension. With Neptune involved, it is harder to see the truth in our relationships. We could feel tempted to give too much, finding ourselves getting pulled down the spiral—again. Compassion is always a good thing, long as we also remain compassionate with ourselves. Boundaries are easier to come by when the Moon enters stoic Capricorn later this afternoon, supplying us with a good dose of reality and objective thinking.
Friday, May 28 – Moon in Capricorn
The Capricorn Moon provides a quiet, business-like morning. We might feel like working alone, focusing on working our plan and accomplishing our goals. Around lunchtime, a critical lunar square to Chiron could turn up the volume on the voice of our inner critic. You know – the one that tells us we never be good enough. Don’t fall for it! Break free from the inner chains that bind you to old paradigms and negative patterns of behavior and do something new. With a sweet Mercury-Venus connection building steam throughout the day, it might make sense to make some social plans for this evening. Sweet talk and intellectually stimulating conversation can make us feel alive!
