One major thing to note in this New Moon chart is that we have 5 planets in the signs over which they rule — this means that these planets feel very much at home and more empowered. The following 5 planets are in their own signs: Mercury (which is also the ruler of this New Moon), Venus in Taurus, Jupiter in Sagittarius, Saturn in Capricorn, and Neptune in Pisces (which also happens to be stationing and is therefore exalted, making its vibrational spin louder).
Something is “in our face” in regards to Neptune’s energies for the whole next month — something is demanding our attention and awareness. I will also talk more about all of this below, but first let’s, look at the Gemini influence of this New Moon.
With the New Moon in Gemini,for the next four weeks, we are asked to connect with others, and share our little hearts out, because Gemini is the archetype of curiosity, communication in all its forms, and mental connections — it represents the development of language and intelligence, as well as our ability to adapt and relate to our immediate environment.
This is a “busy” energy focused on collecting information. We are invited to look at our mental programming and conditioned mind, to see what needs to go, and to see what new thought structures we might want to create in its place.
Gemini is asking us to stay in motion, to think about all that we’ll need to know in order to move forward, and to connect and share ourselves with others. Here are some questions you can ask yourselffor this New Moon: What motivates me to learn? When I talk to myself about sharing or processing information, what do I typically say? What do I say to myself about being connected to others? About my intellectual capacities?
The spiritual goal of Gemini is the development of…
Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 10-15 degrees of Gemini, Sagittarius, Virgo or Pisces? If so, you may feel the effects of this New Moon more strongly; this is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo, the Moon rules Cancer)
The New Moon is also the best time to set some powerful intentions for this month’s Moon cycle; this is best done soon after the New Moon becomes exact — and definitely not during a Moon void of course phase.
So… this month, we have two periods that are great times to set intentions: First, any time between 6:02am, on June 3rd and 11:42am, on June 4th. If you aren’t able to do it during that time period, wait 35 minutes and set them between 12:17pm, on June 4th and 6:02am, on June 5th (all times are in Eastern Daylight Time — the timezone New York City occupies). For more info on setting New Moon Intentions click here.
If you live in a timezone other than EDT (US East Coast-time), I recommend you join my Facebook Fan-page or follow me on twitter, as I post reminders on June 3rd throughout the day, and June 4th afternoon/evening, to let you know when it is time to set your intentions 😉
Listening, An Art Form — Forecast for May 27th – June 2nd
This week’s headline items: Neptune starts its station phase on Saturday, preparing for its retrograde phase, and on that same day, Mars reaches 10.5 degrees of Cancer — which happens to be the degree of the upcoming Solar Eclipse (on July 2nd). There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Monday night/Tuesday very early morning (for a little over 14 hours), Thursday late morning (just over 13.5 hours), and Saturday evening (almost 13 hours).
Before we get to this week’s forecast, I have a quick announcement: If you missed last week’s Forecasting Forum, feel free to get the 115-min. webinar here. Star and SuperStar Members, please check your emails for the mp4-video recording of the webinar: lots of juicy questions, and exploration of our charts in relationship to the Neptune Station phase that is starting this week.
Now for this week’s Forecast…
Monday, May 27th:
Monday, the Moon remains in creative, sensitive Pisces all day, where it will journey until Tuesday afternoon.This Moon placement often finds us more sensitive, intuitive, idealistic and imaginative than normal. We also have a greater capacity for compassion, sympathy and affection for all — but especially for those who suffer or can be regarded as the underdog.
But… that very idealism could also be our downfall at this time: We tend to see the best in everyone and everything, and when reality doesn’t match our idyllic vision, we might feel upset and even victimized by those harsh realities. A way out of this is to channel our idealism into spiritual or creative endeavors.
It’s also a great time for releasing fears — especially the ones based on a sense of separation — and experiencing “oneness”. Feelings tend to flow more freely; as best as you can, let them — in fact, “going with the flow” is the best way to go until Tuesday afternoon.
Monday very early morning, we feel a need to go within — and also want to connect, learn and share. This tension clearly invites us to stretch a little and resolve it through creative solutions — the key here is to listen to our intuition, so we don’t drive ourselves or others crazy.
Monday morning: we’ll get an opportunity to be very present — and also to connect with others through our values. This is a great time for getting practical advice around financial stuff. As best as you can, bring a sense of flow and faith to your interactions with others.
Monday afternoon, we feel more sensitive and need to slow down a little. This is a great time for spiritual or creative endeavors. Energy work, or anything that requires our intuitive side, will work best for the next several hours.
Monday evening, we get an opportunity to be wholly present — and also to focus on practicalities and long-term plans. As best as you can, bring a sense of flow and faith to your business dealings.
Monday late evening, we feel a need to go within and slow down — and at the same time, we also want to move fast and have new experiences. This tension clearly invites us to stretch a little, and to seek resolution via creative solutions — the key here is to…
Collecting & Sharing Information — Forecast for May 20 – 26th
This week’s headline items: both the Sun and Mercury change signs from Taurus to Gemini, on Tuesday. The last Quarter Moon in Pisces becomes exact on Sunday early afternoon, and there will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Monday early afternoon (for almost 15 hours), Wednesday late evening (for almost 14 hours), and Saturday morning (for almost 17.5 hours).

Now, this week’s Forecast…
Monday, May 20th:
Monday, the Moon remains optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius all day. It will journey there until Tuesday early morning. New experiences and adventures satisfy a deep emotional need. The Sagittarius Moon persuades us to come from intuition and think in a broader manner.
We seek meaning and ideas that expand upon the “here and now”; we pursue truth and a new vision — the big picture, rather than the details. Spontaneity is key, we’d rather improvise than plan; this may tip into just “winging it”. We could also overdo or overstate.
Monday morning, we may need to make some adjustments. As best you can, honor both your need for adventure and exploration of life and your need to go within. You may feel a pull between introvert and extrovert, or simply fast and slow. Tune in for a moment and see if you need to take a break or at least slow down a little. As best as you can, be compassionate and kind with yourself.
Monday at 1:05pm EDT, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that last for almost 15 hours, until 3:56am EDT (Tuesday early morning). Use this intuitive time to explore your beliefs (and greater truths) around your ability to see life from a larger vantage point.
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 early afternoon until Tuesday early morning ahead of time.
What Is & What Is Not — Forecast for May 13th – 19th
This week’s headline items: Venus changes signs from Aries to Taurus on Wednesday early morning, Mars changes signs from Gemini to Cancer on Wednesday late evening, and the Full Moon in Scorpio becomes exact on Saturday late afternoon.
There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Tuesday early afternoon (for 1.5 hours), Thursday early morning (for almost 12 hours), and Saturday late afternoon (for a little over 4 hours).
Before we get to this week’s forecast, I have one quick announcement: This month’s Forecasting Forum is getting closer! Also in connection with this week’s Full Moon and in honor of my Birthday this week, I would like to offer some discounts for my Coaching-Healing sessions. These sessions are there to support you, not just with Astrology, but also with releasing and letting go of “old” fears, behaviors, attitudes, beliefs, etc. that no longer serve. This also includes being supported by gaining a more empowering perspective towards yourself and life…

Monday, the Moon remains in detail-oriented, practical Virgo, It will journey there until Tuesday afternoon; turning our focus toward the practical and wholesome. We are generous with our time/services and we love to help others. We also have a fondness for science and anything that makes sense in our world — things and knowledge we can apply and use.
Health might come also into focus at this time. We notice the parts that make up the whole; this is a great time to see if our daily routines (eating, work, self-care, etc.) align with our long-term goals.
Monday afternoon, a somewhat challenging Sun/Jupiter aspect becomes exact at 2:27pm EDT. We started to feel this aspect build from, Sunday (May 12th) on; it will remain strong until Tuesday (May 14th) . This aspect operates more on an internal level. We feel uneasy about something, sort of awkward — and we need to make a choice. An inner awareness needs to be developed if we’re to see what needs adjusting.
More profoundly though, we may feel challenged, as we realize that we are being overly enthusiastic with others. That high optimism may also drive us to take on more than we can physically handle. If we do start to feel drained or frustrated, it might be helpful to look at how we use our energy: Are we in tune with our physical body?
It’s also worthwhile to examine how our personal belief systems impact our experience of life… Can we stay open to new philosophies or perspectives on life and what it offers to us? And even perhaps stay open toward our desire for more expansion or personal/spiritual growth?
Neither avoiding conflict, nor digging in our heels will serve us now; as best as you can, slow down and stay tuned in to your physical body — ground yourself like a tree rooting deep into the earth, with branches that bend with the wind 😉
Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 20-26 degrees of Taurus or Sagittarius? If so, you will be more affected by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Sagittarius (the Sun rules of Leo; Jupiter rules Sagittarius)
Monday evening, seek a balance between head and heart, facts and faith, reason and intuition. That said, if you can achieve that balance, it’s a great day for being of service.
Monday late evening, we are more capable than normal of looking at the details, and focusing on what’s sitting right in front of us that demands to be taken care of, so we can get to the next phase of accomplishment. We are invited to look at all the practical implications; we need to slow down and take our time if we are to manifest something that can stand the test of time — rushing things will most likely backfire right now.
Monday late evening, a harmonious Sun/Pluto aspect becomes exact at 11:07pm EDT. We started to feel this aspect build from last week, Friday (May 10th) on; it will remain strong until this Thursday night/Friday very early morning (May 16th/17th). This aspect brings a sense of focus and empowerment to our long-term goals. We have the ability to look at everything in a very down-to-earth manner right now; through our understanding of “what is and what is not”, we can make more powerful choices.
We can also deepen our understanding of our own motivations and look closely at where we are heading. This aspect also brings an intensity and a depth to our conscious awareness; therefore this is also a great time to transform our lives, stripping away anything — even people — that no longer connect with who we are.
Ask yourself: How can I live more authentically? Is there anything holding me back? What fears and attachments could I release now, that no longer serve my evolution? Am I willing to let them go, just for now, and just as best as I can?
Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in…

The last month has been filled with intense cosmic attention, directed towards what’s working (and what isn’t) in our lives at this time; this was related to the Station phases that have been activating trauma residues, clearing cellular memories, and giving us an opportunity to restructure our consciousness.
This Full Moon shows us how far we have come, as well as what we must still release or transform, if we are to manifest what was begun at the time of the New Moon that occurred on May 4th.
For the next two weeks, we seek the balance and integration of two polarities — and are more aware of something that needs to be brought into alignment. The balance in question is between our physical attachments, aversions, and connections — symbolized by Taurus— and our emotional attachments, aversions, and connections (Scorpio).
The time of any Full Moon is always more extroverted and emotional; this particular one invites us to let go of fears or disempowering behaviors, and thereby break through to the next level of our evolution.
So, here’s this Full Moon’s central question: Are we living in alignment with our values, with what makes us happy and satisfied? As a society, as people, as individuals… Do we feel empowered and emotionally fulfilled?
All right, let’s look at the signs involved in this polarity, beginning with Taurus…

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 25-29 degrees of Taurus, Scorpio, Leo or Aquarius? If so, you are more affected by this month’s Full Moon. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).
Firstly, you have a lot of flexibility with Memberships; you can upgrade, downgrade, suspend (aka pause) your Membership at any time.
If you pause or suspend your membership, you will not be charged; your Membership Bonus (MB) emails restart the moment you reinstate your Membership, and you will not lose any of your Membership Bonus courses in the meantime — they’ll be waiting for you when you return.
If you cancel your Membership, on the other hand, your Membership Bonus courses are immediately no longer available to you; the same is true of the rest of the Members’ content, and you may lose your chance to have your current Membership discounts be locked in for life.
Talking of cancellation, please be aware that if your **credit card numbers** or **expiration dates** change, you may lose your Membership, because the system won’t be able to charge your card — this can happen if your card has to be replaced due to fraudulent activity, for example. We’ve found that the site doesn’t handle it well if you have multiple cards on file (it gets confused as to which card to charge); we’ve been trying to get that fixed, but for now, I request that you only have one card on file inside your Members portal. 2:53
Now a couple of things for SuperStar Members — first, I’ve had a few requests to roll over monthly Coaching-Healing sessions to a later time. Unfortunately, as stated in the Member Bonus emails, I simply cannot do this. I wish I could make exceptions, but my schedule would very quickly become unmanageable… 4:57
Secondly, please watch out for all **Super-Star Member Bonus** emails — not only do you immediately become eligible for your monthly Coaching-Healing sessions upon becoming a SuperStar, after two months of membership, you are eligible to receive the Soul-Based Basics course, and after three months, your Yearly Reading!
A Process of Maturing — Forecast for May 6th – 12th
This week’s headline items: Mercury changes signs from Aries to Taurus on Monday afternoon, Pluto’s Station phase ends on Wednesday, Saturn’s Station phase ends on Friday.
OnThursday afternoon, it’s time to start taking action on our New Moon intentions; and the first Quarter Moon in Leo becomes exact on Saturday. There will also be three Moon VoC phases this week: Tuesday evening (for a little over 9 hours), Thursday late evening (for a little over 11 hours), and Sunday morning (for 4 hours).
Before we get to this week’s forecast, I have one quick announcement: Last chance to watch the Pluto and Saturn Station & Retrograde webinar! Only available until May 11th, and this week only, you can get a 20% discount. Apply discount code: Webinar4Less at check out.
Now, this week’s Forecast…
Monday, May 6th:
Monday, the Moon remains in chatty, versatile Gemini all day. It will journey there until Wednesday early morning. Until then, we like to learn, connect and interact as much as possible. “Busy” feels good: connecting online, on the phone, or sharing face-to-face, preferably multi-tasking all the way…
The one thing we can do without is boredom: If our mind is not engaged in some way, we might as well curl up and play dead 🙂 As best as you can, be patient with yourself and others.
Monday until 6:45pm EDT: If you haven’t gotten around to it yet, set your Intentions for this Moon cycle… If possible, align them with the New Moon energies that I spoke about in my video — feel free to watch it again if you are not sure anymore — click here to watch my video on the New Moon 😉
Monday morning, consider connecting with others, socializing, and taking a compassionate approach toward yourself and others, especially when it comes to personal goals and passions. Ask yourself: what if taking a compassionate approach towards myself and others actually made for more fulfilling connections?
Monday at 2:25pm EDT, Mercury changes signs from enthusiastic, fast-paced Aries to steady, peaceful Taurus, where it will journey until May 21st.For the next 2 weeks, our thinking shifts gears: we want to connect to others in a realistic, down-to-earth way and we “say it like it is”. We appreciate common sense; we rely on our senses when it comes to processing information.
A well-developed sense of color, smell, and touch are characteristic of this Mercury position, so as long as Mercury is in Taurus, we will be drawn towards the “tasteful” in the realm of the five senses. We are more likely to have a no-nonsense approach to decision-making, and our ideas are often very practical and useful at this time.
When it comes to learning, we prefer demonstrations, concrete answers, and basic concepts for the next 2 weeks. We learn best when we…

On May 4th, at 6:45pm EDT,the New Moon becomes exact in 14 degrees of Taurus. This marks the beginning of a new Moon cycle.
As best as you can, get really quiet, and see if you are getting any new messages or ideas. If you are, harvest them, and fold them into any intentions you set for the new Moon cycle — I will talk about this process later in the forecast, and I’ll even give you the very best and most potent times for performing it 🙂 Click here to watch my video on the subject
This New Moon in steady, peaceful Taurus places more focus on our interactions with the physical world — you could say that we seek a healthier relationship with “matter”, one in which we are neither too attached, nor too disconnected from things on the physical plane — for example, our bodies, resources (such as money), and the planet we co-inhabit. We are powerfully reminded to take the time to honor the only planet we can currently live on — The Earth — to honor its resources and beauty.
In much the same spirit, we are invited also to honor ourselves, our bodies, and our talents. This is a good time for reevaluating our relationship to money and possessions, and for discovering what truly makes us happy and fulfilled; check in with yourself: What came to mind when you read this?

The New Moon is also the best time to set some powerful intentions for this month’s Moon cycle. This is best done soon after the New Moon becomes exact — and definitely not during a Moon void of course phase. So this month, the best and most potent time to set intentions would be between 6:45pm on Saturday, May 4th until 11:10am Sunday late morning — then again, at 11:40pm Sunday late evening, until 6:45pm Monday evening (May 6th) — all of the above times are given in US East Coast-time.
If you live in a timezone other than EDT (US-Eastern Daylight Savings Time), feel free to join my Facebook Fan-page or follow me on twitter. I will be posting reminders on Saturday evening, Sunday morning, and Monday — to let you know that it’s the best time to set your intentions 😉
Do you have your Ascendant or any personal planets in 12-16 degrees of Taurus, Scorpio, Leo or Aquarius? If so, you may feel the effects of this New Moon more strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).
