An Unlikely Partnership Role Reversal – Week of May 17-23 2017

Progressive movements are narrowed in focus, as the Saturn retrograde aspect (trine, 120 deg, easy) to Uranus reaches a climax. Another meeting point on this aspect is the first half of November. A revolutionary fervor may then hit the ballot box. Certainly there is a lack of understanding, a disagreement to say the least, or simple trust in our leadership in the US and worldwide. There could also be a role reversal from a traditional viewpoint.

Summary of major aspects of the week:

Wednesday May 17th – The Moon in Capricorn today is trine to the Sun in Taurus (120 deg, easy aspect) and then makes a square aspect (90 deg, harsh) to Uranus in Aries. This combination of aspects in the space of 2 hours is a recipe for agreement and fast action. Outcomes could include swift decision that results in reversing policy or alliances unexpectedly. A computer virus spreading throughout the Internet is another signal of the Uranus in Aries ignited by the harsh aspect with the Moon. Uranus aspect (harsh to the Moon) could be a creative insight as well. A revelation could bring about a change of attitude.  Jupiter quincunx aspect to Neptune could indicate an enormous glitch resolving or an ever expanding contradiction.  Yet, the Moon moves into Aquarius to form a square aspect to Mercury, an indication that quick thinking and actions avert a disastrous outcome. This combination seems to have already taken place with a timely fix on the internet to stop a so-called ransom virus that was rapidly spreading.  That may have been an early instance of the JupiterNeptune quincunx.  An unexpected gift to charity might be a more favorable result. With Venus applying to Jupiter retro from an opposition, data and money change hands. Survival may depend on alertness and quickness of action to remedy the situation. Saturn trine aspect (120 deg) to Uranus from Sagittarius could have a pruning effect on rampant Uranus, limiting the consequences, of an explosive issue. Also could have long standing implications as narrow views are revolutionized.

Thursday May 18thVenus opposing Jupiter in Libra today, an aspect that has formed over the past two days, may be an improved atmosphere, or an energized back and forth exchange that promotes  a unified agenda -a rare agreement between opponents. With Saturn locked into a trine aspect to Uranus, the traditional roles are revolutionized.  The Moon will form a sextile with Uranus later in the day, with Neptune pulling ahead of the quincunx (150 deg) aspect to Jupiter (doubly separating). This tight impasse creates a global shift, and as a result other counter-effects may be anticipated. The NeptuneJupiter quincunx aspect returns in early July with Jupiter direct and Neptune retrograde.

May 19, 2017

Friday May 19th – The Moon in the first decant of Pisces today, a sextile aspect (60 deg, friendly) to Mercury in Taurus is helpful.  We could work to dissolve (Pisces) differences verbally (Mercury) with Venus opposing Jupiter, more interaction can be expected. Adjustments could be made with Mars in Gemini quincunx Pluto in Capricorn. Mars is disposed of by Mercury, while Mercury is disposed of by Venus, in a negotiating position opposite Jupiter. However, the agreements may be only temporary and delay the final decisions until July or August, when the aspects reform.

Saturday May 20th– The Moon transits Neptune in the early morning hours. This could return calm, as dispersed energy leaves us very receptive. It’s as though a spell of forgetfulness was cast.  A few hours later, as the Moon is square to Mars in Gemini, new doubts arise, anxiety may be activated. Saturn trine Uranus could have security fears running rampant. Mars and Pluto are still in the quincunx aspect and remain active, igniting attempts to communicate intentions from the power centers. The more compatible planets, Jupiter and Venus may now be signals of a lack of aggressive posture. The Sun transits into Gemini. Much talk and little action.

Sunday May 21st – With the Sun, Ceres and Mars in Gemini, the Moon in Aries, is disposed of by Mars, as goals are reset following the crises faced in the past few days. Venus and Uranus are also disposed of by Mars, while Mercury is in the fixed sign of Taurus. Mercury in Taurus works on ingathering information. New assessments are called for in the shifting environment. Financial and security issues are under consideration. Status and Power can be reformatted.  Wardrobes are also refurbished.

Monday May 22nd – The Moon opposed to Jupiter in the early hours of the day, and then conjuncts Venus in Aries. The strength of the Venus opposition to Jupiter is then revealed and as a result the exchange however friendships may be reassessed. Much is still under deliberation, as more details are released. A secretive encounter by “frenemies,” to be exact, could be exposed. Covert alliances are of wider interest as new information is added to the files.

Tuesday May 23rd– The Moon in Taurus today enhances the produce of the land, and the economy could also blossom now. The ingathering of information could help resolve conflicts, as more energy is available to consolidate information with the lunar transit of Mercury. Later in the day, profits may increase, as restrictions are eased. Threats could be reduced s well, as Saturn moves away from Uranus (doubly separating trine aspect).
