Tuesday, May 22

A wave of positive energy is in the Skywatch this week. The main event is Jupiter making a trine to psychic and creative Neptune on Friday. In power all week, this marker will lead to some folks making a dream come true and it will fire up the spiritual and psychic awareness in everyone (even your children are likely to come up with some cosmic zingers this week—listen carefully). The rest of Tuesday’s Skywatch is good for work or play. The Moon in Virgo trines dependable Saturn in Capricorn at 9:19 am PDT suggesting a very good time to make decisions and important appointments. Mercury jumps into the spotlight Tuesday evening as he sextiles Neptune at 7:15 pm and then opposes Jupiter at 10:54 pm. New ideas and connections can be positive and welcome in your life and times Tuesday night—reach out. The Moon joins the party as she opposes Neptune at 11:30 pm and then sextiles/agrees with Jupiter at 11:59 pm Tuesday night. Dreams and visions can be powerful this week with dream-maker Neptune in high focus. As times change.

Monday, May 21

Stick to routine. The Moon is Void of Course from Sunday night until she enters efficient Virgo at 7:03 pm PDT early Monday evening. Hold off on making important decisions and purchases while the Moon is V/C as our intuition and judgment are not sharp during this part of the lunar cycle. Evening hours begin with a kiss as the Moon trines friendly Uranus at 7:38 pm. However, the good vibes may not last as the Moon travels on to square the Sun at 8:49 pm. This may fire up disagreements and lower everyone’s energy level Monday night. As times change.

If your birthday is this week (May 20–26)

you have this marvelous Jupiter Neptune sextile in your new Solar Return, late Taurus, and early Gemini birth signs. A sextile brings a time of welcome opportunities in your life in the months ahead. Jupiter loves to travel, get educated, handle legal matters and expand your field of vision. Neptune is creative, spiritual, psychic and charitable. Put these two lists together in any way you can this year, and you’ll likely enjoy and profit from the connection. Venus is in homey Cancer in this chart of your new year. Yes, this is a good year to fix up your digs and to learn how to cook something healthy. Single? A cooking class would be a good place to meet new potential partners. You’ve got real power in this new SR with lucky Jupiter in healing Scorpio, and realistic Saturn in home sign Capricorn. Both planets suggest a very good year to give up smoking or a negative situation in your life. Saturn will work some magic for you if you are patient and wait for the right time to make the big decision/change. Stay focused, and you can make tremendous progress in whatever you attempt Taurus. Times have changed.

THE WEEKEND: May 19-20

Get the chores done first thing on Saturday. Green lights are up as easygoing Venus makes a sextile to friendly Uranus at 10:29 am PDT Saturday morning. This is a good time to buy/deal with cars, computers and high tech stuff, all ruled by Uranus. Luna lines up with the Sun in a welcome sextile to the Sun at 2:14 pm, but that’s the last of the good news on Saturday. As the Moon squares jumpy and unpredictable Uranus at 4:33 pm and then opposes impatient Mars at 6:37 pm. Clear skies return thereafter.

Double-check the details Sunday morning as the Moon squares tricky Mercury at 12:31 pm PDT. The Sun enters Gemini, ruled by Mercury, at 7:15 pm early Sunday evening—messages and texts increase as everyone has something to say. A difference of opinion or a bit of b.s. is likely as Luna squares philosophical Jupiter at 8:30 pm Sunday night. Luna then turns Void of Course until Monday afternoon. As times change.

Friday, May 18

Speak up. Green lights are up on Friday, and it’s a stellar day to place your order, interview for a new job and to make important purchases and decisions. The main event in the Skywatch is well-informed Mercury making a trine to practical and realistic Saturn at 9:49 am PDT Friday morning. Trines blend the energy of the involved planets and offer us a very good time to take action. Two more welcome trines follow as the Moon in sensitive Cancer trines psychic Neptune in Pisces at 5:23 pm and then trines lucky Jupiter in Scorpio at 6:47 pm. These trines in water signs create a Water Grand Trine in the heavens, opening the door to directing us towards clarity and a deeper understanding of our emotions and reactions. Quiet hours follow.

Thursday, May 17

Sweet. The Moon meets agreeable beautifier Venus in the heavens at 11:18 am PDT Thursday morning. This is a good time to interview for a new job or to get a haircut. Caution lights kick on a minute later as the Moon turns Void of Course until she enters home sign Cancer at 2:47 pm Thursday afternoon. Hold off on making important purchases and decisions while the Moon is V/C as our intuition and judgment are not sharp during this part of the Moon’s cycle. Green lights kick back on once the Moon changes signs and then makes a sextile to friendly Uranus at 2:59 pm Thursday afternoon. Calm skies fill the rest of the day and night hours. Moon in Cancer = feelings count, the truth is in your guts. As times change.
