In the Stars May 27-June 3, 2018…shining light on the astrology of the week: Full Moon

The week ahead holds the steamy Full Moon in Sagittariius (Moon is in Sagittarius and Sun is in Gemini) on Tuesday. This a Grand Trine in Fire (Moon, Chiron, and North Node) and a Grand trine in water (Jupiter, Neptune, and Venus). Water and Fire create steam. The sauna, good for detoxing and health, is an apt expression of this combination of energy. The Sun has just entered Gemini tropically, highlighting communication, community, and connection. Gemini is the sign of the zodiac that bridges Spring with Summer. The week is energized by a Sun-Moon trine. The Jupiter-Neptune trine, strong all week, calls us to higher consciousness, and stirs our imagination with creative possibilities.

Sunday we turn inward in the low light of the Scorpio Moon. Feelings run deep. We want to study, investigate, and get to the bottom of problems and concerns. Sunday shines with benefic energies. We feel optimistic and buoyant, and can imagine a positive future. Use this good energy to make this day count!

The Moon is void of course for a long period on Monday, Memorial Day (10:25 a.m.-3:25 p.m. PDT). The Moon in Scorpio is an excellent planetary configuration for honoring our deceased military and other deceased loves ones. The air clears and lightens when the Moon moves into sunny Sagittarius at 3:25 p.m. PDT. We are ready to come out of the cave and into the light and connect with others.

A Full Moon in Sagittarius-Gemini fires us up for travel and adventure on Tuesday! A Grand Fire Trine between Chiron in Aries, the North Node in Leo, and the Sagittarius Moon can bring healing through truth, vision, and stretching beyond the personal. Our imagination is encouraged by a Moon-Neptune square. Mercury ingresses into Gemini, encouraging conversation and communication. The Neptune-Jupiter trine that is in effect this week, calls us to higher consciousness and creativity.

Wednesday’s sunny Sagittarius Moon is void of course all day and evening, spilling over to early Thursday morning. When the Moon is in this mutable fire sign, it signals a call to adventure. Get some exercise in the outdoors. Explore the travel section of a bookstore. Make it a casual, easy, social evening. This is not a day for meetings, purchases, or decision making.

Buckle down on Thursday, the last day of May, and work on all that needs to be accomplished at the month’s end. After an energizing jolt from a Moon-Uranus trine, the Moon conjuncts both Vesta and Saturn. The asteroid Vesta, goddess of the hearth, is a feminine version of Saturn. This is a demanding, industrious day made for hard work and getting things done.

Friday is a day of mixed energies. The Capricorn Moon joins Pluto, making its demands again for work and accomplishment. However, the day is graced with a delightful Venus-Jupiter-Neptune Grand Trine in water signs that makes almost anything seem possible. Other benefic aspects give inspiration and vision. Hope, happiness, and hard work are key words for Friday.

Saturday the Moon is void of course most of the day until 3:06 p.m. PDT. Rather than shopping and running errands, clean house and do some gardening. The void Moon is in Capricorn, so a lot can be accomplished. The evening calls for gathering with friends. Great night for a party!

We are energized by an early Sunday morning Moon-Mars conjunction. Get out early and get exercise. Try something new. The Sun and Moon are in a benefic trine in friendly air signs. Sunday is a social day for connection and community.

Moon Void-of-Course: This is the time when the Moon makes its last major angular aspect with a planet before it moves into the next zodiacal sign tropically. This void time, when the Moon is not aspecting a planet, but rather floating on its own, is a time when things don’t come together and it’s difficult to make good decisions. Purchases made during void Moons often turn out to be unsatisfactory and not work out. Appointments often don’t come together, and meetings don’t result in progress or sound, lasting decisions. We more easily get lost or meander in trying to get somewhere. The VoC Moon times for the next month are listed below so that you can plan meetings, decisions, and purchases at times when the Moon is not VoC; and use the void times for gardening, reading, and routine task work.
