Today, Monday May 25th presents the beginning of a busy week and the 1st quarter moon delivers a resounding call to take action.
It’s a great time to push through on your intentions set for the New Moon on May 18th. This cycle began with the Sun in Taurus – the sign of manifestation, and now, with the Sun in Gemini – you present the information.
Like cogs in a giant wheel, the Virgo moon squares Saturn, Mars, and the Sun today. As a marker of cosmic weather, the moon is tending towards a blustery forecast.
Today’s 1st quarter moon predicts continued pressure on all systems, especially with Mercury retrograde. Fortunately, things ease up by the New Moon of June 2nd. But, for the next couple of weeks, get your rain gear in order and put on your tall boots.
Both Venus and Mars also form stressful aspects now; Venus squares Uranus and Mars squares Neptune. Venus and Mars are personal planets, meaning that they impact YOU and your everyday life; Uranus and Neptune work through the big picture social or cultural concerns.
With Venus and Mars activated, you can take delight in the balanced, holistic nature of the Universe as both feminine and masculine energies speak up for recognition. Like a cog in the Wheel of Life, your personal growth integrates with your contribution as a Universal Citizen.
Venus square Uranus is an opportunity for a sudden breakthrough. Venus and Uranus often present an opening for an impulsive attraction that leads to ‘falling in love’. The lesson is multi-faceted:
1) You don’t want to ‘fall’ in love – falling is an act of giving up your will. Surrender, yes; but falling often leads to injury.
2) Refine the object of your desire. Venus and Uranus often fuel the attraction for an illusory ‘other’. Answer this through a passionate love of self.
Mars square Neptune today addresses having the courage to face the dark side and to confront the lies that you have been sold. Mars is clearly the archetype of masculine energy. The planets invite you now to claim your power and remove the monkey on your back that never felt ‘good, strong, or smart’ enough to get the job done. Gather up that old junk that you unconsciously (Neptune) bought long ago, and take out the trash.
Personal Work = Soul Work
Accept this invitation to dance with the Universe. The aspects today can leave you feeling either overwhelmed, or they will inspire you to step into your power. As you release shock, trauma, and move past resentment, you activate the healing of your soul.
One More Thing . . . .
On Wednesday Mercury joins Mars (in Gemini.) With Mercury retrograde, this may be an uncomfortable conversation and one that is filled with misunderstanding. So don’t get manipulated into a conversation about the past that really has no relevance to the present. Now you know. It’s easy, right?
Yes – it is for YOU – wise astrology being. Have an amazing week, and a fantastically rich and rewarding life.
This week, as always – let your Light shine.
