Love vs. War. I can’t decide how to color the major event in the Skywatch on Tuesday.

Venus lines up opposite to Mars Retrograde at 9:38 PM CDT Tuesday evening. There’s nothing else to report as the Moon enters careful Capricorn early this morning and sails out into calm seas until she sextiles Neptune at 11:27 PM Tuesday night.

I suspect you’ll see givers and takers today. But not necessarily from those whom you might expect due to Mars Rx.

The range of reactions is from hot sex to domestic violence. As you know, the stars impel but they don’t compel.

Be cool and safe Tuesday night.

As times change.

Jump in. The Skywatch is good for work or play Monday morning. Clever Mercury has returned to direct motion which helps speed up matters that have been delayed of late.

The kiss of the day appears at 10:37 AM CDT when the Moon in optimistic Sagittarius trines friendly Uranus. Caution lights kick on a minute later as Luna turns Void of Course until tomorrow morning.

Stick to routine while the Moon is V/C and hold off on finalizing matters.

Let times change.

Sunday’s Skywatch is partly cloudy. The Sun opposes impatient Mars Rx at 6:17 AM Sunday morning .

Mercury turns direct in motion at 8:20 AM and that’s the kiss of the day. But the Moon squares dreamy Neptune at 1:21 PM, and then squares Jupiter at 4:31 PM, and then meets grumpy Saturn at 5:20 PM.

None of this is very difficult, but can bring a new set of conditions with Mercury back again in direct motion. Quiet hours return a few minutes after Luna leaves her conjunction with Saturn.

As times change.

Trouble. Pull back and stay on the safe side of things on Saturday. The Moon turns Void of Course at 6:40 AM until she enters Sagittarius at 1:48 PM Saturday afternoon.

Luna travels on to oppose the Sun creating a Full Moon at 4:14 PM. She then meets Retrograde Mars in the heavens at 5:43 PM. Hot tempers and arguments are likely Saturday night as this Full Moon sits on the same spot as Mars Rx.

This doesn’t happen very often—don’t take chances or push your luck Saturday evening.

    If the full moon falls on Mercury retrograde on the same day that mercury retrograde begins to station before going direct…well…would that mean that some important issue from our past is ending??

  2. Lance Ferguson

    Full Moons bring times of harvest, endings, completions….which nearly always
    deal with an issue from the past. Mercury turning direct kinda fits in with
    past matters surfacing. so, yes, this could be the time some important issue from
    your past is ending or completed.

Loose lips sink ships. Love that line and it’s something to remember Friday morning as the Moon opposes Mercury Retrograde at 6:48 AM CDT.

Yes, double-check the details with Mercury still backing up on the bases, and especially once the Sun enters Gemini, ruled by Mercury at 9:37 AM. Green lights are up all this time as the only other maker in the heavens is a kiss: Moon sextile healing Pluto at 12:18 PM.

Clear skies follow for the rest of the day and night.

Thursday, May 19

Rare. The Moon enters Scorpio at 1:30 AM CDT early this morning and sails out into quiet seas for the rest of the day and night. It’s rare when we have one of these days with no distractions up above.

Even the Retrogrades are valuable now as they turn us back into thinking about what we have done, how we feel, and how we can make things better. Sure, it’s a good day for work or play, too. I turn 68 today. And can’t figure out how THAT much time has gone by—the number stuns me.

I began the study of astrology in June, 1975, when an eternally dear woman read my birth chart and sent me out of the depths of despair into the light of awareness and compassion for the struggles I had been through. I’ve never looked back. And looking for some way to communicate this knowledge, I started writing Skywatch in 1989 on a portable electric typewriter.

Today, I’m still reading astrology books and learning more about the planets and their cycles. Always more to learn.

As times change.

      I can hardly wait until the Texas Frontierism start to subside and the screech of shore birds become your background.

  4. Selena

    Happy Birthday!!! Like you, astrology opened a door for me and I continue to learn. What a powerful and influential statement you made, to keep learning.

  5. Deborah Buchanan

    Here’s wishing you a day full of laughter and love, and may the year to come be your best ever. I am closing in on 65 myself, so I know what you mean. The time just flew by. I have been interested in astrology since the late 1960s, but I never delved into it as deeply as you have. I really appreciate that you share your knowledge with all of us, and I almost never approach the day without getting some clues and insights about the workings of the planets from Skywatch Astrology. I’ve been checking in with you for 10 years now, I think. Keep up the good work!
