Astrology Forecast May 2-8
The moon waxes from Taurus to Leo, Venus enters Aries, a rare Jupiter/Pluto alignment, and Uranus shenanigans.
I once scheduled transits to Twitter to post as they happened, but now I’m sharing the transits of the week here every Sunday evening, ahead of time. Astrology can be witnessed both before and after the exact degree that the aspect falls.
All dates and times are CET.
Monday, May 2
12:46 ✩ The moon enters double-bodied Gemini where it will stay until Thursday. The moon’s final aspect is a square to Jupiter. Education. Books. Commerce. Absorbing information. A change of understanding in light of new ideas emerging.
18:10 ✩ Venus, the planet of harmony and values, enters fire sign Aries. Over the coming weeks, desires are intuitive and immediate. We’re connected to our feelings and wishes on a core, instinctual level.
Wednesday, May 4
00:33 ✩ Jupiter, the planet of faith, connects with power planet Pluto, an alignment that only happens twice per decade. There is a remarkable amount of grace available to overcome obsessive behavioral loops and to float out of patterns that we feel are stuck in. It can be a transformative time for individuals and the culture as a whole.
17:46 ✩ Mars connects with Uranus, the planet of invention. Connections that break the mold. An invigorating moment to carve a new path. Zapping. Electrical fires. 3d modeling.
Thursday, May 5
01:05 ✩ The moon enters Cancer, its domicile. The final aspect of the moon in Cancer is a juicy, gorgeous trine to Jupiter. Acceptance. Surrender. Resolution to heal. Growing past old barriers.
09:21 ✩ The sun meets with Uranus. A new cycle in bringing order to chaos. Peace and grounding despite uncertainty and upturns. Personal truths trump all.
Friday, May 6
08:01 ✩ Venus, the planet of desire, connects with Mercury, the planet of communication. Pleasant conversations about feelings. Sometimes naming desires is a prickly process, but the conversations are flowing.
Saturday, May 7
11:47 ✩ The sun connects with action planet Mars. Opportunities to do what you want and reach out to people who can make it happen. There’s an ease to collaboration and peacemaking.
13:49 ✩ The moon enters Leo, where it stays until next Tuesday. The final aspect of the moon in Leo is an opposition to Saturn. The collective stands up against the law. Second Saturday in the octave of May day.
If you’re hungry for more forecasting, especially forecasting that is edited and for each zodiac sign, I still write horoscopes for VICE each week, which you can read here. <3
