The Moon will be trine Mars and Saturn will be sextile Jupiter, Mercury, and Uranus. Venus is still sextile Neptune. It is a amazing line up. This Full Moon has a lot of good energy.
Gardening by the Moon. Jupiter in Taurus is good for getting in touch withMother Nature.
Venus is getting closer to an exact trine with Neptune. On June 2nd it will be exact. Venus and Neptune are romantic and artistic. Is your relationship loving and kind? Is your relationship grounded and realistic or are you seeing the relationship with rose-colored glasses? This aspect is great for relaxing and enjoying mother nature. Taking time for the simple things in life.
On June 4th, 2023; Full Moon in Sagittarius trine Mars in Leo, and square Saturn in Pisces. Trines make for smooth changes and squares make for tension and corrections. We must adapt to the changing situation. Mercury will be cazimi Uranus at the time of this Full Moon. This is great for thinking outside the box and communications will be flowing.
On June 5th Venus moves into fiery Leo where it will stay until October 10th. This is a long transit because it is moving direct until July 23rd and then it begins its retrograde motion. On September 4th it stations direct again at 12 degrees. Venus retrograde finally moves into Virgo on October 10th. This is a repeat of a pattern in the summer of 2015 Venus was retrograde in Leo. If you remember what you were doing at that time this Venus retrograde will have similar themes. Venus retrograde themes are relationship changes and how we perceive ourselves. Venus in Leo is tied to the Sun and the ego. Leo like to shine and burn brightly. Leo at their best is generous and brave, the good King. The worst case is a lack of moral strength. Anytime Venus is retrograde themes tied to women’s issues will become important. In 2015 we had the same-sex marriage debate, and the Pope came to the United States. In 2023 I wonder what we will debate.
May 29th, 2023, the Moon in Libra will be trine the Sun, and Moon sextile Sun. This represents our connection to others and our home. It is a positive aspect.
We also have the North Nodes conjunct Jupiter this is the head of the dragon conjunct Jupiter. It is a powerful time for growth, and results. It is a time of blessings, be open to the possibilities, however, make sure to keep yourself regulated and balanced because it can cause you to be overzealous or overworked. It is of the nature of Venus and Jupiter. This aspect will be exact on June 1, 2023 and this week is positive week.
May 22, 2023, the Moon in Cancer is conjunct with Venus in Cancer. Pollux and Castor are close by too. Mars in Leo is just above the Moon. What a line-up! My camera doesn’t do this evening sky justice.
Jupiter in Taurus May 16- May 26, 2024.
Taurus is ruled by Venus a sign that indulges in the finer things’ life has to offer, such as good food and wine therefore weight gain can become a problem during Jupiter season, and art and music will thrive. Jupiter in Taurus may help to distribute wealth. I am sure the rich will continue to get richer but there should be a reprieve for the common person. Taurus season will be good for Virgos, Capricorns, and of course Taurus. From May 2022 to May 2023 Jupiter has been in Aries. Jupiter in Aries moves fast and gets the job done quickly and is ruled by the planet Mars. Aries is aggressive and loves adventure. It is a big change going from a fire sign to an earth sign. Taurus moves slower. Taurus asks us to slow down and smell the roses and enjoy mother nature. Taurus wants us to have more leisure time.
On May 21st the Sun moved into Gemini. Gemini is playful sign and the life of the party and is ruled by Mercury. It is named after the messenger of the Roman gods because of its swift movement across the sky. Mercury rules the thought process, and more importantly communication, in other words how we connect the dots. The planet Mercury is the fastest planet and the sign Gemini is a fast talker and thinker. Gemini people like to do crossword puzzles, and games anything that stimulates the brain. Gemini people tend to talk with their hands.
On May 21st Mars in Leo will oppose Pluto in Aquarius. This energy creates tension between yourself and others. Pluto is an intense Planet. In Tarot Pluto is associated with the Judgement card which indicates a critical decision. It is usually a deep change in life and a permanent change. Pluto in Aquarius is a scientific and social sign and Leo is a sign associated with an excess of moral strength or a lack of moral strength. It is the generous king or the selfish King. This energy causes conflict. What is the choice that you need to make? Power struggles can intensify.
On May 22nd Mars in Leo is comfortable in the fire sign, and Venus in Cancer is a water sign is comfortable in Cancer. Gemini is ruled by Mercury great for communication. In the month of May, we have helpful planets in good signs helping us to move forward. The Sun in Gemini sextile Mars in Leo will help us recover from the difficult aspects on Sunday.
On May 23rd Mars is in Leo square and Jupiter is in Taurus. Two fixed signs with different agendas. It is best to focus on the positive changes you have made. Try to stay grounded.
On May 26 Venus in Cancer sextile Uranus Taurus, this is a beautiful aspect. Take advantage of this great aspect by planning a fun weekend. Mars will be sextile the Sun too!

The Star Algol
Algol is a star that is associated with intense female energy and anxiety. Early astrologers said it was the most malefic star in the heavens and causes death by loss of one’s head. In today’s terms, I associate it with high anxiety. On May 17- 18th Algol was intense because its energies were mixed with the Sun and Uranus. It affected people who had strong Aquarius, Taurus, Leo, and Scorpio energies. Art, music, and cooking is a good way to express the energies of Algol.
I find in my life when the star Algol makes aspects to a planet in my chart, I worry too much, mostly about what is uncertain.
Sun and Moon conjunct Algol May 17-19. Is this true for anyone else?
May 16th-May 21st.
On May 16th, the Moon will be Aries conjunct with Jupiter and square Mars in Cancer. This is a good day for getting projects done if we don’t act rashly. Positive feelings and good energy, but patience will be in short supply. Try not to overstep the mark. It’s best to slow down whenever possible. It might feel like you need to protect someone or crusade for a cause.
On May 16th, Jupiter begins its journey through Taurus. Taurus is ruled by Venus and represents our possessions, money, and self-worth. Taurus also governs the food we eat and how grow our food. Artistic endeavors are positive. Jupiter helps us expand our life and our circumstances. Mercury has started moving forward too which is helpful. On June 3rdMercury will move past the 15-degree mark where it first went retrograde, and you will find more clarity.
May 18th, Jupiter in Taurus square Pluto in Aquarius. This transit is a strong desire or energy to achieve your goals. Try not to push your ideas onto others. I like what Robert Hand said about this transit, “There is a struggle here between the openness of Jupiter and obsessiveness of Pluto. In this situation, one can bring real growth, the other only conflict.” By Robert Hand Planets in Transit.
May 19th New Moon at 28 degrees in Taurus trine Pluto and sextile Mars in Cancer. It is also conjunct with the star Algol and Mars trine Neptune. Pisces rules both Neptune and Jupiter and is a sign that is associated with faith. Faith can also be blind faith. We may have faith that is tested or rewarded during this New Moon. The New Moon is ruled by Venus in Cancer; therefore, family, friends, and your beginnings are important during this New Moon. This is strong energy for starting a new mantra and new growth. Planting the seed for new growth or ventures. This is a positive and good feeling New Moon.
May 20th- 21st: there will be a grand cross with the energies of the Nodes, Mars, Jupiter, and Pluto retrograde. A triangle is formed with Mars in Leo square Jupiter and opposite Pluto. Mars’s opposite Pluto causes power struggles and feelings of powerlessness. Pluto and Mars’s aspects are intense and hard to control. A Serious flare-up is possible. There can be power struggles during this transit and a need to fill up our cup or empty out something in our lives. This is a tough aspect and we can feel stuck. It can be positive if you have a goal and give others space and avoid stepping on someone’s ego.
