Wednesday, May 16

Take your time with early call and chores. A challenging Mars-Uranus square early this morning puts a touch of static and tension into the Skywatch on Wednesday.  However, the Skywatch improves as the Sun rises. The Moon in clever Gemini sails out into calm seas until she makes a square to spacey Neptune at 4:17 pm PDT Wednesday afternoon—double-check the details around this moment. Thankfully, astrological skies clear thereafter for the rest of the day and night.

Tuesday, May 15

Plant a seed. A New Moon in fertile Taurus at 4:48 am PDT sets up an excellent day to initiate a new plan of action on Tuesday. Morning hours are best for priority calls and business. The Moon trines eager Mars at 1:30 pm but then turns Void of Course for a short period until she enters Gemini at 1:43 pm. Caution lights are up Tuesday night as aggressive Mars lines up in a square to dangerous Uranus, exact three minutes after midnight. Safety first tonight and pay extra attention to the kids and critters as accidents are more likely with this square. As times change.

Monday, May 14

Upbeat and dangerous. Both ideas and energies are in the Skywatch this week. Green lights are up for Monday and most of Tuesday as a New Moon in money sign Taurus lines up in the heavens. A dangerous Mars Uranus Square late Tuesday night promises breakdowns, violence, and acts of rebellion in the headlines—and Mars is notorious for causing a problem way before the exact moment. So proceed with caution on Monday and stay on the conservative side of things. The Moon in Taurus suggests a good day to make purchases and financial decisions. Luna sextiles psychic Neptune at 2:44 pm PDT and then opposes generous Jupiter at 5:08 pm. This is a good night to talk budgets, and future financial plans as the Moon trines astute Pluto at 11:05 pm Monday evening, and a New Moon is brewing. As times change.

If your birthday is this week (May 13–19)

powerful Pluto is sitting a trine to your Sun in your new Solar Return, Taurus. This once-in-a-lifetime event will bring lots of Bulls their fifteen minutes of fame in the months ahead. I’ve seen many clients get big promotions and welcome public recognition for their work during this period in their lives. As this can be a transition time, too, Taurus—when you let go of the negative people and situations in your life you’ll find more room to grow, prosper and meet new faces who can help you in the future. This is the year to direct your will and to go after what you want; Pluto rules the Force, and it is with you now, Taurus. As times change.

Sunday, May 13

A surprise is likely on Sunday. Caution lights. Clever Mercury meets unpredictable Uranus in the heavens at 3:49 am early Sunday morning—a neighbor’s car alarm going off or something out of the blue is likely to disturb your sleep. A tense Moon-Mars square, exact at 9:31 am is likely to burn the toast and someone’s patience—not the kind of energy we want to see on Mother’s Day. And this is followed by the Moon meeting rebellious Uranus in the heavens at 11:05 am. Luna then turns Void of Course until she enters Taurus at 11:15 am and travels on to meet Mercury who just entered Taurus, too, at 11:57 am. Green lights come on at this moment as the Skywatch clears for the rest of the day and night. As times change.

Saturday, May 12

Slow down. The Moon travels through impatient Aries on Saturday and moods are likely to be uneven as you start your day. All due to Mercury making a square to feisty Mars at 6:30 am PDT Saturday morning. Accidents and arguments tend to follow this pair around—don’t ignore safety issues with anything dangerous on Saturday. Signals in the Skywatch for Saturday evening are mixed. An uncompromising Moon-Pluto square at 7:54 pm if followed by a sweet Moon-Venus sextile at 10:01 pm which hopefully smothers any negative feelings that a square can create.
