Return of the Feudal Mentality — May 11-18 2022


The full Moon on Monday May 16th, is also an eclipse of the Moon, so it could have an increased importance, and a sense of a sudden reversal, not only on this day, but for the entire soli-lunar cycle. The Moon in Scorpio opposition aspect to the Sun in Taurus relates to issues of fertility and reproduction.  Parental rights could be associated with Saturn in Aquarius. Pluto in Capricorn represents the political and legal powers of the state.  With flawed reasoning, the state assumes the rights of the individual parent. In a feudal system, the feudal owner of the land, had total power over the individual as owner of the land and of the surfs. It is regression of authority to assume power over reproductive rights.  It has not been relegated to the state in Biblical texts. It is remnant of feudal law that the state persists in punishing women, when the power rightfully rests with the parents. In the case of unmarried women, the power of reproductive decisions rests in her hands, and when she seeks medical intervention, on the advice of her medical team. Saturn in Aquarius is at the focal point of the Sun/Moon opposition, as limitations are proposed and, in some cases implemented, impeding parental rights, and putting a focus on reproductive rights. Saturn is the dispositor of Pluto retro in Capricorn, the feudal mentality, and represents the controls put in place when authorized.

Summary of Major Aspect of the Week

Wednesday May 11th — The Moon in Virgo makes a trine aspect to Uranus in Taurus early in the day, early morning hours in the Middle-East and Europe, late night on Tuesday in the US. This aspect corresponds to a flowing relationship, so that personal efforts will be rewarded. Only a few hours later, the Moon is in an opposition aspect to Mars in Pisces, and Mars is in a sextile aspect to the Sun in Taurus. Even as evacuations (Uranus), continue in Ukraine civilians remain under the threat of bombardment (Mars). Saturn, in a semi-sextile aspect to Neptune in Pisces, seeks to put limits on evacuations and mass protests (Neptune). The lack of control over mass protests becomes obvious, with the Moon in an opposition aspect to Neptune in the afternoon, and a quincunx aspect to Saturn in Aquarius, as efforts to restore peace with rationalizations is quite futile. The Moon makes a trine aspect to Pluto late in the day, as the demonstrations become more powerful and confrontations could be deadly.

Thursday May 12th — The Moon ingress to Libra early today seeks balance with Jupiter in Aries in an opposition aspect with the Moon. The Moon is then in a trine aspect to Mercury retro in Gemini, bringing Mercury also into aspect with Jupiter, a doubly approaching sextile aspect. Musical creativity is one possible indication, as a protest movement gets underway. The Sun in Taurus closely aspects Rahu, and makes a sextile aspect to Mars/Neptune in Pisces, offering a breakthrough for new talent.  The Moon is in an opposition aspect to Venus in Aires, in the evening Pacific Time Zone, a draw that could be explosive on Social Media.

Friday May 13th — The Moon in Libra makes the quincunx aspect to Uranus early in the day, marking the day with unexpected events, reversals, etc. The Sun is in a sextile aspect to the midpoint of Mars/Neptune, so that the conjunction aspect is drawn into effect, with a sextile aspect to the Sun in Taurus.  The Moon then transits to a quincunx aspect to the Sun, and also to Mars/Neptune, for a Yod formation, late in the day US time, after midnight on Saturday morning in Europe and the Middle-East. The Yod is primarily indicated for an effective musical production with Neptune involved, and very purposeful with Mars combined with Neptune.

Saturday May 14th — The Moon makes a square aspect to Pluto prior to its ingress to Scorpio early in the day, with a quincunx aspect to Jupiter in Aries. Fame or heroism coincides with the creative signatures, as a culture hero(es) emerges(-s). The Sun in Taurus sextile aspect to Neptune denotes the idolization or hero worship that results. This is probably not Putin, although he may have his fans in Russia, even though he has a stellium in Libra and Venus in Scorpio in his natal chart, more likely an antithesis. Venus in a conjunction aspect with Chiron in Aries, disposed of by Mars, expresses the inner truth of the recent events.  

Sunday May 15th — The Moon in Scorpio reaches the opposition aspect to Uranus in Taurus, as revelations continue, and the story unravels as the quincunx aspect to Venus/Chiron probes the mysteries. The Sun in Taurus is in a challenging partile square aspect to Saturn in Aquarius, and sextile aspect to Neptune in Pisces, seeking to erode authority and the limitations placed on sheeples, by denouncing and protesting in the majority. 

Full Moon Eclipse
May 15-16 2022

Monday May 16th — The Full Moon [see image] aspect occurs at 9:14 pm on the US West Coast, and just after midnight EDT, and after 6 AM in Europe and 7 AM in Ukraine and Russia. Saturn in Aquarius stands at the focal point, symbolizing the moderator, square aspect to the Moon in Scorpio and square aspect to the Sun in Taurus. The middle ground is difficult to hold in a T-square configuration. Legal implications are clear with Saturn in this position. Some indictments may be issued in order to hold the peace. The Moon is trine aspect to Neptune and Mars in Pisces, while Ceres is square aspect to Jupiter. We love the music, but regret the courts proposed rulings. The Moon ingress to Sagittarius by mid-morning, afternoon in Europe and points eastward, forming an opposition aspect to Mercury retro in Gemini, as reflections on the past are made to determine the future plan. The Moon in a philosophical guise, conflicts with Jupiter in Aries, the awakening social order.

Tuesday May 17th — The Moon in Sagittarius makes a trine aspect to Chiron in Aries followed by a trine aspect to Venus in Aries, justifying legal rulings with precedent. The Moon is quincunx aspect to Uranus in Taurus as market values are re-assessed. Mars in Pisces supersedes Neptune. As the dispositor of Jupiter, Mars represents legal rulings that bring a forceful end to a refugee crisis, or a potential end to an era of mass poverty and homelessness.

I hope you have an interesting week. Thanks for reading my assessments of the configurations in the sky.

Reminder: While lunar aspects are in effect only for only a few hours, the aspect of the outer planets can last days and weeks. I post a reading for a day in advance in order to give a preview, and also because the aspects may be in effect a day earlier.
