  • Sun in Taurus
  • Waning Crescent Moon Taurus
  • Prominent Planets: Moon and Mars
  • Prominent Mode: Fixed
  • Prominent Element: Earth, Air
  • Prominent Aspect: Sextile, Square
  • Retrogrades: Pluto Rx, Juno Rx
  • Mercury conjunct North Node

It’s a great day for ideas and making choices based on those ideas, especially ideas that are emotionally fulfilling.

The waning Taurus Moon conjuncts the lineup of planets in Taurus: Ceres, Uranus, the Sun and finally Black Moon Lilith at tomorrow’s New Moon. You might feel an extra surge of breaking free, or wanting to break free from the usual for something more emotionally exciting or secure.

The only problem is the New Moon’s tight orb sextile to Neptune in Pisces. Instead of ACTUALLY breaking free from an old pattern, you may unconsciously avoid the tangible work required by escaping with a wild fantasy or “life vision.”

Watch for this trap. If you follow the fantasy all the way through, you might see how it eventually falls apart….

It’s beneficial to accept change and move forward but unacknowledged fears and insecurities can sabotage your true life vision.

There’s nothing wrong with fears and insecurities; it’s only when they’re ignored that they create unnecessary issues (including sabotaging fantasies) until they get some love and attention….

Make no mistake. Stepping into the unknown requires true vision, true passion, and real consciousness which serve as reliable guides through life’s inevitable challenges and question marks.

Today is best utilized by letting go of the (very convincing but false) fantasy and putting tangible ideas into tangible action. This is the best way to dissolve stress, anxiety, and fear anyway.

AND – paradoxically – letting go of the life dream allows it to happen in REALITY.


Clean Out The Closet

May 10 – May 16, 2021

  • Monday, May 10: Mercury conjunct North Node, Moon in Taurus
  • Tuesday, May 11: New Moon in Taurus
  • Wednesday, May 12: Mercury trine Saturn, Mars sextile Uranus, Moon in Gemini
  • Thursday, May 13: Sun sextile Neptune, Jupiter in Pisces
  • Friday, May 14: No Major Aspects
  • Saturday, May 15: Mercury in Retrograde Shadow, Moon in Cancer
  • Sunday, May 16: No Major Aspects

It’s a great week to clean out the closet or release the old to make room for the new.

As long as you’re in a state of flow, allowing change to happen, new inspiration can come to you – especially in the areas of communications, contracts, or personal economics.

For people with repressed individual ideas and emotions – or if you’re resisting change – this could be a very anxious week. To mitigate anxiety, consider a meditation practice that allows you to ‘let it all go‘ and allow life to happen.

Avoid talking too much – especially about celebrity gossip or rambling about your life dream – as empty chatter can distract you from buried thoughts or feelings in need of attention – and only creates more anxiety. Also watch for trying to bond with old securities, especially childhood friends, therapists, family, or home life once the Moon is in Cancer. It’s the time for beautiful change.

Allow something beautiful to show up in your life ORGANICALLY, even if you aren’t quite ready for it.

If you can let the old life drift away, accept the new, and stay focused on self-expression through a creative project… it can be a fun, exciting week.

The whole month is full of change. If you finalized any new decisions last month – which require you to step out of your comfort zone into something new – this resolve can carry you through the chaos of the upcoming eclipses. STAY RESOLVED and roadblocks/obstacles will disperse early July.


May 2021

Let Change Happen

Life changes (which began around the time of the Aries New Moon) speed up during the month of May. These are beneficial shifts happening and overall, it’s a smooth-flowing month.

ENERGIES LIGHTEN UP this month, as planets transition into Gemini.

But resistance to change can create unnecessary stress, anxiety, or panic for some people.

There’s no need to fret if you stay in flow with life’s natural, beautiful change of seasons. It may not be easy, but there are plenty of benefits if you can relax and allow organic change to take place in your life.

Growing tension from this year’s Saturn Uranus square may feel like WANTING change but RESISTING change at the same time.

You can utilize this vital energy pattern by doing the usual operations but in a new, inspired, more authentic way. Aslo, take change SLOW in order to avoid harsh reality checks along the way.

With major planets aspecting Neptune throughout the month, watch for tendencies of escapism. If you deny the need (and desire) for change, or try to ignore changes occurring… resistance can result in missed opportunities or missing out on favorable events.

Mercury retrograde at the end of the month can play out in mental anguish or frustration concerning plans and contracts or those aforementioned reality checks due to escaping with “coping mechanisms” or delusions of fantasy.

Generally, it’s best to have contracts finalized before May 20, then stay low key until Mercury is direct around the end of June. If anxiety is an issue, consider committing to a strenuous daily workout or daily work routine, and/or a serious meditation practice.

Overall, it’s a good idea to stay clear and focused, but also relaxed. Allow life to shift and life will work out just fine. If you can stay in the game (instead of checking out) and go with the flow, you’ll be glad you did!



Conscious Choices and Life Changes

After the year 2020 uprooted foundations and outdated material securities, 2021 is the year for exciting change, especially as it might concern your career or relocating to a new home. Multiple new beginnings and new cycles present opportunities for major structural change.

Final choices made by the end of the year establishes new life experiences for the long term – so choose wisely. You might not know exactly what’s ahead but that’s okay. Dare to follow your true heart and enjoy exciting new opportunities that come your way.
