The Astrology Week Of May 23
The week launches in a Gibbous phase as we wax our way towards full moon. The first few days of the week has us sorting through our schedule. The things that we value and activated on Taurus new moon about 10 days ago may need some follow up. Look at your calendar how are you following up?
There is a lot going on this week.
On Sunday-5/23-- Saturn stationed retrograde at 13 Aquarius.
On Wednesday 5/26 --Sagittarius Lunar Eclipse at 5 Sagittarius
On Saturday -5/30 --Mercury retrograde at 24 Gemini
That is a lot of action for one month and when it is in all one week, well its potency will be strong. Saturn’s turn around may bring out the sourness about our fellow humans or technology or just a general sense of ennui. We have a five-months to process the Saturn retrograde and it does not mean it is all icky until October but the first couple of days can feel like an adjustment.
The lunar eclipse will highlight what we know, how we communicate, what is being told to us and what we tell others and if we are off our game anywhere, we will get called out. With the Sag eclipse, watch the hypocrites including any holier-than-thou people in your world, in the news and in the mirror.
On Saturday, Mercury begins its three week retrograde journey in its home sign of Gemini. Thinking and electronics that are frayed will go on the fritz in a big way. Double check ALL appointments and plans, then go back and double check them again. If you are a person who has a hard time pivoting, then you will need to dig in deep and find a way to be flexible. Those people who can adapt at a moment notice will have an easier experience. Those who can’t adjust because they didn’t plan for it, whatever it, is may be more challenged.
We refine our information. We pick and choose, we discriminate, and we organize to be ‘Virgo’ like. We sort through details. Have we missed something? How are we sifting through the information? Go back and make sure something hasn’t been neglected. Refine our actions.
Focus on: How are you sorting your schedule?
5/23: Saturn retrograde at 13 Aquarius 31 (see separate post)
Full Moon Phase –
5 Sagittarius 25
Full Moon: We make the needed adjustments on the things we planted. Usually, emotions are up and running and for those people who perhaps did not utilize the new moon and the rest of the waxing moon, this is when emotions can get the better of us. There can often be a big emotional break, for no other reason than to get back on track. Some partnership will offer up some balance. The moon is bright and full and there is no room for shadows, what is reflecting on you?
How are belief systems and language influencing your thinking? Are you holding on to an old belief that is no longer relevant? Are you gullible to other people’s thinking and language? What is new thinking? What is gossip? How are you learning on the ground facts? How are they informing your beliefs?
5/27: Venus square Neptune. Love and money and creativity are fuzzy. Watch the spending. Watch the indulgence because of ‘love’.
5/28: Venus conjunction Mercury. Thinking about values is paramount. Speaking about values is paramount.

Disseminating: Share information; find a teacher or someone who has more knowledge. Perhaps there was a big ol’ blow out on the full and one feels in need of support and help, this is the phase to reach out to one who knows more. This is when we find a rabbi or a minister or therapist who gives us more insight. And of course, you too may be ready to teach and share your own information.
Focus on: How are you sharing your executive skills? How are you sharing your business acumen? How are you sharing your ability to navigate responsibilities?
5/29: Mercury station retrograde 24 Capricorn 43 (see above)
5/30: Mars trine Neptune. Actions based on faith and trust. Humanitarian actions.
5/31: Sun conjunction North Node. Focus on adaptability. Focus on the power of pivoting. What is coming up that your old way either doing or thinking just no longer makes sense.
