Summary of Major Aspects of the Week
Wednesday May 4th — The Sun and Uranus in Taurus, a sign of fertility, awakens the powers of the individual versus the collective concerning reproduction rights, as values are subject to a conflicting sense of personal power and reversing of precedent. The reversal is a reformist movement, although reverting to a past traditional status, that is a controlling influence with Saturn in Aquarius, trine aspect to Moon and Ceres in Gemini. Ceres is the goddess of fertility, prolific in Gemini while in the conjunction aspect with the Moon, the feminine power. Saturn, the limiting force in Aquarius, places control on fertility and reproduction health as a future goal. Mars in Pisces is sextile aspect to Sun and Uranus, as a dissolution is in process. Meanwhile, the destruction (Uranus) and theft of land and valuables (Taurus) and personal life and property continues in Ukraine.
Thursday May 5th — The Moon in Cancer is trine aspect to Mars in Pisces, activating dissention and protecting the Homefront, as the Sun supersedes Uranus in Taurus. Mars sextile aspect to the Sun, and Venus in Aries is sextile aspect to Mercury in Gemini provide for lively discussions, passionate and unforgiving. Jupiter in Pisces is sextile aspect to Pluto retro in Capricorn, undermining social progress.
Friday May 6th — The Moon is in a quincunx aspect to Saturn in Aquarius, prior to its opposition aspect with Pluto retro in Capricorn. The lack of understanding of regressive actions creates a climate of disbelief. Discussions on compromises seek to withdraw or modify the regressions, as Mercury in Gemini sextile aspect to Venus in Aries suggest possible actions, while Sun in Taurus sextile aspect to Mars in Pisces contends a dismissal, thus rectifying proposed reversals is in order.
Saturday May 7th — The Moon ingress to Leo makes a trine aspect to Venus in Aries followed by a sextile aspect to Mercury in Gemini, as discussions become dramatic. Governments and institutions cull the populations, justifying murder with law and authority, claiming armies are needed to defend freedom, and incarcerating minorities in disproportionate numbers. The semi-sextile between Saturn in Aquarius and Neptune in Pisces evidence of conflicting social programing.
Sunday May 8th — The Moon in Leo makes a square aspect to Uranus in Taurus, and a trine aspect to Chiron in Aries, as Chrion and Uranus are in a semi-sextile aspect, the wisdom of regressive policies is in question. Rebellion could undermine authority, as the Moon is quincunx aspect to Mars in Pisces and square aspect to Uranus in Taurus. Chiron and Uranus are semi-sextile aspect, as is Neptune in Pisces and Pluto in Capricorn. Ceres in Gemini is quincunx aspect to Pluto retro in Capricorn, with a generational disconnect.
Monday May 9th — The Moon in Leo is in opposition aspect to Saturn in Aquarius, as disputes about whether the control of population planning rightfully belongs in the hands of authority or of the individual, with the Moon quincunx aspect to Neptune in Pisces. The Sun in Taurus remains in a sextile aspect to Mars in Pisces, as values and freedoms collide, or compliment. The discussions are endless.
Tuesday May 10th — The Moon in Virgo is square aspect to Mercury in Gemini as practical solutions are sought. The Moon transits to the quincunx aspect to Venus in Aries, reflecting discontent. Virgo espouses workers rights. Health is a fundamental right and in this conflict that right is in jeopardy. Oppression is felt when the collective restricts humanitarian rights. Jupiter ingress to Aries is significant for empowering the individual. Mercury turns retrograde as recent claims are reviewed. Corrections and explanations are made to clarify statements. Some defections might be achieved.
