Now, this week’s Forecast…
Monday, May 15th:
Monday, the Moon remains in creative, sensitive Pisces and VoC until 3:56am EDT.
Monday early morning, at 3:56am EDT, the Moon moves into pioneering, fast-paced Aries, where it will journey until Wednesday morning. Life is an adventure, we’re more open to new ideas and have great enthusiasm for new projects. Patience is certainly not our strong suit at this time, but we can decide quickly, and act immediately.
Our independence and dynamism are important to us right now, so we may find it hard to be disciplined or accept advice at this time; in general, our responses to others tend to be more assertive or even aggressive. If you find your foot tapping, try hitting the gym, or finding other ways to burn off the body’s excess energy.
Monday late morning, a harmonious Mars/Neptune aspect becomes exact at 9:44am EDT. We started to feel this aspect build from last week, Tuesday morning (May 9th) on; it will remain strong until this Sunday (May 21st). I already mentioned this aspect in last week’s blog, but just as a refresher: This aspect brings the ability to endow what we feel passionate about with our creativity — and connect it to a higher love.
Our masculine energies are able to connect to compassion and understanding. We can now release past issues; through loving ourselves, we can release emotional blockages and the lower vibrations of the masculine: aggression, domineering, destructiveness, and me-first attitudes.
As this aspect is taking place in Cancer and Pisces, we are connecting to our goals and dreams from an emotional place that is deeply spiritual. We are able to let go of our fears and attachments and are able to have faith that everything will turn out just as it needs to.
Ask yourself: Is there anything I can release from my past that no longer serves me? How has anger shown up in my life? Could I allow the part of me that feels anger to be embraced and accepted?
Those of us who have their Ascendent (or personal planets) in the following: 24-29 degrees of Cancer, Pisces, Scorpio, or 0 degrees of Leo, Aries, or Sagittarius will be touched in a particularly beautiful way by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Aries or Pisces (Mars is the ruler of Aries; Neptune rules Pisces).
Monday evening, around 8:05pm EDT, the Balsamic Moon phase begins when the Moon reaches 10° of Aries. This lasts until Friday afternoon when the New Moon in Taurus becomes exact (more on that later this week… however, feel free to watch my New Moon video here). We are being asked to slow down and get quiet, so we can listen to our inner sensing/intuition.
For some of us, this might be a stretch, especially since we are still in Eclipse season. As best as you can: stay grounded, take a deep breath, and exhale any tension. Rather than starting something brand-new, put all that energy into completing existing projects or processes.
This is also a great time for letting go of whatever no longer serves us. What if you could hear the voice of your inner wisdom? What might it be saying?
