Our Creative Core Awakened 


This week’s headline items: Pluto is still exalted (stationing) all week; Mercury starts to slow down (station) again on Tuesday and comes to a halt on Sunday late evening — to end its three-week Retrograde phase, going direct and beginning its post-Shadow phase.


There will be four Moon Void of Course (VoC) phases this week: Monday late afternoon (for 3 hours), Wednesday evening (a little over 2 hours), Friday late evening (a little over 1 hour), and Sunday late evening (5 hours).


Before we get to this week’s Forecast, please know that…

If you missed our Forecasting Forum last week, and would still like to watch the recording of our live webinar about “Jupiter in Taurus until May 2024″, you have the option to either become a Star Member by the end of this week (monthly Forums are included in the Membership), or you can purchase this webinar by itself on my webinar-page

Here is some feedback I received after our Forum on Friday:

“Thanks Sonja, the eclipse knocked me out but the Forum woke me up and kept my attention ❤️” — Meredith D.


“Deep gratitude for your insights” — Cathy E.


“Thank you 🥰🙏” — Lea C.


Now, this week’s Forecast…


Monday, May 8th:

Monday, the Moon remains in optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius until 7:33pm EDT. We’re strongly motivated to explore and learn. We’re not likely to be big fans of routine — diversity and new adventures work best at this time — we’re also physically restless and need to burn that off with activity and physical exercise.

We tend to feel more open, optimistic, and inspired — but we also have a high degree of independence — and taking these two influences together, we’d rather inspire others to do things our way, as opposed to issuing or obeying orders. Inspiring others could come easier than normal, as we can see the bigger picture, leaving us confident that others will agree with us once they see what we see.

As best as you can, speak your truth without assuming that everyone is on the same page as you. Improvisation works well for us at this time, as we are spontaneous and love living on the edge — just watch out you aren’t overdoing or overstating things.

Monday late afternoon, at 4:28pm EDT, we enter a Moon VoC that will last for 3 hours until 7:33pm EDT. Use this intuitive time to explore something you feel passionate or enthusiastic about — what projects come to mind? What would be a fantastic use for all the physical energy that you currently have access to?

As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don’t start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan Monday late afternoon until the evening ahead of time.

Monday at 7:33pm EDT, the Moon moves into ambitious, goal-oriented Capricorn, where it will journey until Wednesday late evening. We tend to be more realistic, serious, and cautious; this can support practical endeavors and financial matters.

Our ambition surges and brings a need for structure and planning; when you add in the pragmatism this aspect supports, you can see how this could be a very productive time for business and long-term goals. Our reputation becomes very important to us.

As best as you can during this aspect, avoid “should-ing” on yourself. Take the pressure off, perhaps by saying, “I am doing the best I can, and that’s all I can ever do”.

Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn — and it is currently transiting through Pisces. This is a great time to look for practical applications of our dreams, ideologies, connection to Source, or one-consciousness.

It’s also a great time to take a more serious look at our spiritual or creative aspirations; as best as you can, be authentic about your intuitive connection to life. What works (and what doesn’t) when it comes to your idealism, addictions, avoidance of life, and dreams?

What about life truly resonates with you — as it stands now, rather than what it was 5 or 10 years ago? Where in your life is it time to let go of naiveté or an idealistic approach that no longer serves you?

What tools or structures support you with being in the flow, being present, and feeling connected to the Universe in this now-moment? What needs your time and attention? What could you practice every day? What do you genuinely want to commit yourself to?
