And also — if you’re learning tarot, or know someone who is — I’ve created some pretty helpful intuitive and tarot products…laminated tarot reference sheets and also a new deck of tarot-sized intuitive playing cards (with the meanings right on the front!) They seem to be a great conversation starter at gatherings I’m told! If you’d like to see them, they’re all on amazon….just go to amazon.com and search for Skye Mackenna.
Plus, you can also find information about private sessions with me to see what’s coming up for YOU personally at my website http://www.intuitivelifeguidance.com. I’ll also send you an audio of our session right afterward so you won’t even have to take notes!
. . . . .
So now let’s take a look at the week and month ahead.
Venus has now entered Cancer as of May 7th and home and family will become more important to us. Venus in Cancer is very emotional and a much different energy from flirty Gemini where she just exited. For Venus in Gemini think hot pink short shorts, in Cancer think soft, think pink cashmere. Family issues may come front and center in some way through early June. The challenge here may be that some may become clingy or needy or more possessive with this Venus placement. A great deal of our energy will be focused around home and family, maybe redecorating and/or nesting until June 5th when she moves into regal and dramatic Leo. For these few weeks especially, practice patience, nurturing and gentle care of self and others.
As of Monday May 11th, Mars has left grounded, sometimes stubborn, Taurus and entered glib conversational Gemini and communication and action now gets faster and livelier. There’ll be huge mental energy since Gemini is ruled by Mercury – and Mercury becomes a focal point player now since he’s sitting stationary in the sky and will be turning retrograde on May 18th. However, since Mars is energetically facing off and opposing restrictive Saturn, which becomes exact on Thursday and Friday this week, the energy already speaks to standoffs. And reaching a crossroad. And even endings.
Friday, May 15th, Mars officially opposes Saturn. This is has a harsh, limiting and restrictive energy and feeling. It may feel a lot like “my way or the highway” – from you or toward you. Control and ego may be out in full force. As much as possible, try to just let this energy pass by. And if at all possible don’t force issues. Any issue. We’ll be feeling this all week, but especially on Thursday and Friday.
Saturday, May 16th, Venus will dance softly with Neptune This can be creative or compassionate. It’s a subtle energy and can be very pleasant, buts it’s a very fleeting energy. Try to use it well!
Then be prepared for emotional and mental stress from May 18th through end of month.
On May 18th, May’s New Moon occurs just after midnight EST at 26 degrees of Taurus. Taurus is ruled by Venus and is also the natural ruler of the second house of money and possessions, and things we value. And while Taurus is by nature the earthiest and most laid back of signs, Mars is involved here. And all three bodies – Sun, Moon and Mars – will oppose Saturn and square Neptune. That’s a whole lot of pressure there! And all of that jumped up energy will be in effect for the next two weeks – at least – depending on how your own chart is affected. And/But, however, if you have planets or placements in late degrees of Virgo or Capricorn, you’ll likely be feeling strong support from somewhere or someone through it all.
Then also on May 18th, right after this extremely significant Taurus New Moon, Mercury officially turns retrograde. Heads up for mental stress and/or confusion for the next three weeks! Expect hyperactive communication and activity. And while communications will be speeding up, so will frustration because Mars in Gemini will still be opposing Saturn. Think face-off, confrontation or train wreck. It would be a good idea to do all signings, shopping, scheduling like immediately if not sooner!
Remember, Mercury will be in Gemini for ten weeks. If you can schedule some down time, some “me” time or rest during this period, May18th – June 11th that would be a great idea! Mercury-ruled Gemini and Virgo will be most affected this time around.
Then, Thursday, May 21st, the life giving Sun enters Mercury-ruled Gemini for the next month. Gemini is the ruler of the third house of communication, siblings, neighbors and immediate family members. All kinds of communications will be jumping! But since Mercury IS retrograde now, just be sure to send all those emails to the right person!
On May 21st, Venus will face off with Pluto. This is tough energy for love – and for women in particular. The action and energy may become obsessive, manipulative, possessive and/or overwhelming. This is not a good time for close personal relationships, especially if it directly aspects your chart in some way. Venus/Pluto can also exacerbate any tendencies of anger and/or domestic violence if a relationship like this already exists, but it’s not enough to cause or create one. Once again, this is NOT the time to force issues. Some relationships will end but the energy of regeneration is also out there.
On May 22nd, the Sun gets into the squabble as he opposes demanding, restrictive Saturn. You may not see the credit you feel you deserve. Don’t push it. Just let it pass for now.
On May 25th, Mars squares off with Neptune. Today can feel discouraging and tiring. Check to make sure that any information you give OR RECEIVE is accurate. However, spiritual pursuits and intuitive energy can be accessed well. However, we may see more water-related weather issues around this time.
Also on May 25th, Venus will square Uranus. Venus rules love and money and we could be surprised by either or both. Some relationships may break apart, take an unexpected turn, and/or someone exciting and new could burst onto the scene out of the blue. Watch any new relationships carefully though since this is NOT an energy of longevity without other steadying or supportive aspects involved in your own birth chart.
On May 27th, Mercury will conjunct Mars. This can be a willful energy. As in “I’m right, you’re not.” This can also be accident-prone energy so also take care in driving, traveling, communications, and dealings with others.
May 29th, Mercury squares Neptune. Confusion can be the energy of the moment. Watch for misleading statements or conversations. And once again – check your email address before you hit send!
On May 30th, this time it’s the Sun’ turn to conjunct retrograde Mercury. So even more “willfulness” is in store. Be alert to ego conflicts, and once again be careful with any traveling, local or distance.
Finally, on May 31st, the Sun now will square off with Neptune. This actually can be excellent for spiritual work and for creativity. If you reach for it, compassion is in the air. However, try not to take life, people and things too seriously now. And don’t take any wooden nickels either!
