Astrology Forecast for the Week of May 16, 2022 – May 22, 2022

The astrology forecast for the week of May 16, 2022 through May 22, 2022 features five planetary aspects (Mars conjunct Neptune, the Sun trine Pluto, Mercury Rx sextile Jupiter, the Sun conjunct Mercury Rx, and Mars sextile Pluto), sign changes for the Sun and Mercury Rx, and a potent lunar eclipse in Scorpio.

This week is piping hot and has more activity than the New York subway system. So, without further ado, let’s dive in.

Cosmic Overview

The big newsmaker this week is the lunar eclipse in turbulent Scorpio on May 15, 2022 at 12:14 AM EST, and on May 14, 2022 at 9:14 PM PST

The sign of Scorpio is connected to the darker parts of your personality, the sides of yourself that you prefer not to show in the light of day. It’s an excellent Full Moon to protect yourself from yourself and work through self-defeating behaviors or self-sabotage. Often the things that we do are not driven by conscious thought, but are rooted in our childhood experiences for better or worse. However, this is your show – you get to cast your own characters, defeat your own monsters, marry your own prince (or princess), and yes, write off any characters that no longer serve your purposes. So, get to work on your new script!

Daily Breakdown

Monday, May 16, 2022

After the lunar eclipse occurs shortly after midnight (on the east coast), the Moon will switch signs and move into Sagittarius during the early morning hours. The Moon in Sagittarius is feisty and optimistic, and since it forms a lovely trine to Jupiter, it should be a positive day.  However, watch out this afternoon, because the Moon will oppose Mercury Rx, and communication issues are likely.

Tuesday, May 17, 2022

The Moon continues to move through free-spirited Sagittarius and makes a lovely trine to Venus in Aries. It’s not the best day for heavy lifting or focusing on duties and responsibilities, but it’s an excellent day to do something enjoyable. But keep your guard up this evening, as the Moon squares Mars, and tensions with others may become a potential problem.

Wednesday, May 18, 2022

Mars conjoins Neptune in Pisces. The good news is that Mars and Jupiter are in mutual reception (in each other’s sign), and this will hopefully mitigate the energy. The bad news is that Mars conjunct Neptune is a tough aspect that comes with a side order of low energy, self-doubt, and inner insecurities. It’s best to avoid people who may potentially take advantage of you. However, it’s a good day to do charity work or help another person – as long as your personal agenda is not involved.

Thursday, May 19, 2022

Thursday is a potent day, astrologically speaking. We start the day off with a helpful trine between the Sun and Pluto.  Sometimes, you need powerful (Pluto) experiences to see reality for what it is, and then you can use these experiences to make changes in your life that help you level up. Later in the day, Mercury sextile Jupiter gives you the opportunity to see the big picture and make future plans. Mercury sextile Jupiter is also great for business decisions.  Just make sure you wait until after June 3rd to act, because Mercury is retrograde.

Friday, May 20, 2022

On Friday, the Sun moves out of Taurus and into Gemini. Gemini season helps you explore how you think about things, as well as helps formulate ideas and personal opinions. While the Sun is in the sign of the twins, you will notice that you need to be more social and explore new things. Use this energy to explore all your options to enrich your universe.

Saturday, May 21, 2022

As the Sun conjoins Mercury Rx in Gemini, we enter the halfway point in this Mercury Rx cycle. The Sun conjunct Mercury is an extremely social aspect, and since it’s the weekend, it’s a great day to connect with your inner circle to catch up or engage in high-spirited ideas that fascinate you. It’s also another great day to plan your future, especially activities that pique your interest.

Sunday May 22, 2022

We close the week with Mars sextile Pluto in Capricorn. Mars sextile Pluto gives you the opportunity to claim your power and also gives you the ability to course correct, especially if you’ve been traveling down the wrong road. Pay close attention to the detour signs in your life, as they are clear signs of what you need to change. Also, Mercury retrogrades back into stubborn Taurus.

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast for the Week of May 9, 2022 – May 15, 2022

The astrology forecast for the week of May 9, 2022 through May 15, 2022 features two planetary aspects (Sun square Saturn and Sun sextile Neptune), Mercury turning retrograde in Gemini, and Jupiter moving out of Pisces and into Aries.

So, there is a lot going on this week.  Let’s dive right in.

Cosmic Overview

This week, the cosmic juggernaut Jupiter moves out of Pisces (he will return later in the year) and into Aries. In astrology, Jupiter is the planet of expansion – he makes our lives grow bigger, better, bolder, and hopefully wiser. When Jupiter moves into a new sign, he expands the natural tendencies of the sign, and since he is moving into Aries, get ready for a giant dose of get up and go.

The sign of Aries is extremely individualistic and concerned with matters related to the self. Some keywords associated with Aries are initiating, energetic, forceful, and courageous. When Jupiter moves through the sign of the ram, he will expand our lives by pushing our individual selves forward. So, this is an excellent time to go after whatever you want in life, whether career related, your personal goals, or your inner desires. Jupiter gives us the ability to make things happen, and the drive and determination to succeed.

Overall, it is time for you to seize your moment!  Don’t let this energy pass you by, it only comes around every 12 years.

Daily Breakdown

Monday, May 9, 2022

The Moon moves through energetic Leo and opposes Saturn early in the day. The Moon in opposition to Saturn could lead to feelings of isolation, negative mindsets, and difficulties with authority figures. After the Moon opposes Saturn, it goes void of course, until she moves into Virgo. While the Moon is void of course, it’s best to avoid beginning anything new or signing documents. The Moon moves into Virgo at 6:53 PM EST/3:53 PST.

Tuesday, May 10, 2022

Besides Jupiter moving into Aries, Mercury turns retrograde in Gemini. Mercury retrograde in Gemini instructs us to look at our thoughts and opinions, and make adjustments if necessary. Avoid making major decisions and expect communication issues. Also, make sure you keep your computer and electronic devices updated and backed up. Since Mercury rules Gemini, you can expect this retrograde to be a doozy.

Wednesday, May 11, 2022

The Moon continues its trip through Virgo and forms tense aspects to Mars and Neptune. Mild disagreements with others may occur during the early morning hours. Be as proactive as possible, and avoid reacting to other people’s issues.  Later in the day, the Moon opposes Neptune. You may experience some mild confusion, and it’s best not to make any decisions at this time.

Thursday, May 12, 2022

The Moon moves into Libra during the early morning hours and opposes Jupiter, Venus and trines Mercury. Although this is not the best day for heavy lifting, it’s an excellent day to spend some time enjoying your life and having some good old-fashioned fun. You will also want to socialize and connect with others.

Friday, May 13, 2022

The Moon continues to move through Libra and forms a lovely trine to Saturn in Aquarius. Yesterday was about fun in the Sun, but today is all about taking care of business.  Make sure you take time out today to take care of your duties and responsibilities. Legal matters may also be an issue.

Saturday, May 14, 2022

The Moon moves into Scorpio, the sign of the upcoming lunar eclipse that happens on Monday. Expect intense emotions to surface, and problems from the past may need resolution. Try to be as non-reactive as possible when dealing with others, because they may be potentially volatile.

Sunday, May 15, 2022

We close the week with a few solar aspects, the most significant being the Sun square Saturn. Today is a battle between your personal gratification and your duties and responsibilities. You may feel depressed and restrictive, and you may want to break free of your circumstances.  Try to push away negative thoughts if they surface.

To help you with Mercury Rx, I have included the following:

Mercury Rx Dirty Dozen! Tips and Tricks to Wrangling the Trickster God

  1. Make sure you go over anything contractual thoroughly.  Make sure all the i’s are dotted, and all the t’s are crossed. If you can get away with it, wait until after the retrograde to sign on the dotted line. 
  2. Avoid starting anything new.  New projects tend to have communication problems and mishaps when initiated during this process.
  3. Put a watch on your tongue.  (If it is not worth saying, don’t say it)
  4. Check your vehicles for any potential problems.  Before Mercury goes retrograde, is the best time for a service call.
  5. Avoid buying real estate or renting apartments.  Usually, this means you will move again during a future Mercury Rx.
  6. Using mail delivery services that offer tracking and insurance.
  7. Check, recheck, and check again any travel plans you have or appointments on the books.
  8. If you do travel, don’t take anything of importance or value. Only bring items that you do not care if they are lost or stolen.
  9. Expect people from the past to resurface.  However, once they crawl out of whatever cavern they came from, proceed with caution.
  10. Back up all electronic devices.
  11. Avoid buying an automobile. 
  12. Mercury Rx is a great time to scour places (online and offline) for great deals!

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast for the Week of May 2, 2022 – May 8, 2022

The astrology forecast for the week of May 2, 2022 through May 8, 2022 features 5 major planetary aspects (Jupiter sextile Pluto, Mars sextile Uranus, Sun conjunct Uranus, Mercury sextile Venus, and the Sun sextile Mars) and Venus moves out of Pisces and into Aries.

May is one of the busiest months of the year, and the first week of May doesn’t disappoint. Let’s dive right in.

Cosmic Overview

This week Jupiter sextiles Pluto, one of the outer planets. This aspect is incredible to work with if you want to make some major life changes. Pluto is the planet that gives us personal power if we work with it proactively, and Jupiter expands Pluto’s natural energies. So, this is a powerful cycle to make dynamic changes internally and externally, and you can use this energy to reform any area of your life that you want to change.

While Jupiter sextile Pluto is active, make sure you take advantage of it, because you will have the energy to accomplish whatever you put your mind to, and achieve greater control over your life. So, anything you put off, or haven’t pursued, or been fearful of tackling, now is the time to seize your moment.

Daily Breakdown

Monday, May 2, 2022

Venus moves out of Pisces, the sign of her exaltation, and into Aries, the sign of her detriment. Venus is the planet associated with love and relationships, and the sign of Aries is extremely self-focused. So, while Venus is in Aries, she is concerned with her own individual pursuits and desires, and she has the drive to go out and get it. Now, this can be difficult for relationships, and you may need to be patient with your partners (all of them) and yourself during this process, especially since Venus in Aries likes a challenge, is wildly competitive, and will fight to get what she wants. Venus remains in Aries until May 28th.

Tuesday, May 3, 2022

Besides, Jupiter sextile Pluto, the Moon moves through social Gemini. Expect minor disagreements during the morning hours, as the Moon squares feisty Mars.  Try to be as patient as possible when dealing with others. A proactive approach is the best approach.

Wednesday, May 4, 2022

Mars forms a sextile to Uranus in Taurus. You will be itching for new experiences, especially if your life has been monotonous recently. Furthermore, if you need to break free of boundaries and limitations, Mars sextile Uranus helps you break through barriers with new insights and solutions. It’s also a great time to make new friends that stimulate your soul and provide some excitement in your life.

Thursday, May 5, 2022

The Sun conjoins Uranus in Taurus. It’s going to be another day that you need to break free from the confines of your daily life and do something different. You may feel restless and constrained, and this could lead to anxiety if you don’t work with this energy proactively. If you have a hard time creating change or change in general, you may feel nothing is working out the way you planned, and this may lead to feelings of frustration. Although you may want to cling onto things in your life, letting them go may be your best option.

Friday, May 6, 2022

This weekend will be decent, starting with Mercury sextile Venus in Aries. It’s an excellent day for socializing, connecting with others, and enjoying the pleasures of life. Mercury sextile Venus can also put you in touch with your true feelings, especially about love and romance. Tonight is excellent for a date night, so go out and enjoy yourself.

Saturday, May 7, 2022

The Sun forms a lovely sextile to Mars. This is a high energy aspect that you should take advantage of, because it gives you the drive and determination to accomplish whatever you desire. You will notice that you are self-assertive, and if you need to ask someone to meet your needs, now is the time to do it.

Sunday, May 8, 2022

We close the week with the Moon in fiery Leo. It’s an excellent day to play and let your inner child roar. Expect some minor unexpected surprises during the early afternoon when the Moon squares disruptive Uranus, but try not to let it steal your joy. Otherwise, the day should go relatively smoothly.

See you next week!
