Struggling in Reverse Mode – May 13-20 2020

The Moon in Aquarius beginning this week promotes consciousness raising, while Mars in Pisces focuses our efforts on repairing the disasters that confront us. The Moon meets with Mars in Pisces by Friday, for a renewal of focus.  Jupiter turns retro on Friday this week, moving toward the conjunction aspect with Pluto retro that occurs the last week in July. As both planets are very slow moving, this aspect forms very slowly and remains in effect for all of July. The Moon will move to the conjunction aspect with Neptune on Saturday, revealing deeper levels of emotional reactions. The lunar ingress of Aries on Sunday and a conjunction aspect with Chiron in Aries could awaken inner resources. Saturn delays the forward drive, even as Mars in Pisces seeks retribution.

Wednesday May 13th – The Moon in Aquarius forms a square aspect (90 deg, harsh) to Uranus in Taurus, as Saturn in Aquarius turns retrograde.  This could have a destabilizing effect, setting into motion a reverse phase of recovery. The Sun in Taurus is trine aspect to Pluto, as the day wears on. This is one of two trines between Sun and Pluto this year. The second will be on September 13th.  We can find some common ground now, with a transforming quality to group efforts.
