Week of May 13th-19th
“We waste time looking for the perfect lover, instead of creating the perfect love.” Tom Robbins
Monday: Moon in Cancer
Love is not unrealistic. Only those who relate to it selfishly may feel this way. Today, the two Planets who relate most to Love –Venus & Neptune–square off, creating a potential tragedy in the hearts of all you helpless romantics out there. Neptune says, “There is nothing wrong with being a romantic, just as long as your not helpless in it.” This is Personal Love, or Eros. It’s only a fraction of the infinite fabric of Love. Venus says, “But how can I love without any expectations?” A whisper from the depth of our Collective Heart answers, “Without trying, you find it. A love that never dies.”
Tuesday: Moon in Cancer
Patience is a virtue. Perhaps this is why so many people lack virtue. We are always reaching for something. Getting our instant gratifications. This impulse in us relates to Mars–our desire nature. Today, as the Moon swerves into a sextile aspect with Mars, there can be some irration. A feeling of subtle rage by not getting what we want. Patience is everything. The Gods will give you what you Need, when you need it! Be patient. By the time the evening blankets over us, Sun & Moon will make the same aspect (sextile). Bask under this sliver of the nurturing Cancer Moon. Rock in her, legs swinging, staring into the infinitude of the sky around you. All your hearts desires will come in perfect time.
Wednesday: Moon in Leo
We live in a mercurial world. Probably the most it has ever been. You cannot even go to a cafe–or a bar for that matter–without everyones face glowing from their electric screens. Our language is morphing swiftly (LOL. btw. nm. XOXO…..~*~). Nothing wrong with this speedy evolution, it’s just hard to keep up with–esp. for all you idealists who are still trying to resist technology. My advice for today: Don’t resist it! Mercury moves into Gemini today, joining both Jupiter and Venus in the Airy sign ruled by Mercury, increasing this fierce breeze of novelty. Embrace your tech. Have fun with it. It’s a Leo Moon after all!
Thursday: Moon in Leo
Recovering from the electronic buzz of yesterdays ingress of Mercury into Gemini, the moON squares Saturn today. Cause & effect. Perhaps your left eye is twitching from all the computer time and caffeine. Or maybe your head is spinning because of all the conversations you had about this, that and the other thing, and you are now more confused than before. Saturn has a way of bringing all our stuff to the surface. Your goal for today is to learn how to keep a smile on your face amongst all the energy trying to pull your mouth to a frown.
Friday: Moon in Leo
Think back to last Thursday, the 9th of May. It was the day of the Solar Eclipse in Taurus. It was a heavy day. Solar Eclipses usually have this quality. And more specifically, what was your day like? Did you have any intentions for the Eclipse, for this Lunation? If so, today is the day of your first big test. It is the First Quarter Moon today (Moon square Sun). Mercury does the same with Neptune (square). Your thoughts may be slippery and hard to grasp. You may find it challenging to remember last Thursday. It could even be a doozy articulating anything today. Do your best, then let go. You are more intuitive today then you were yesterday. Trust your feelings, not your mind.
Saturday: Moon in Virgo
Diving into the weekend, we backstroke in the memories of the days just lived: the week starting with the confusion around our hearts, then getting plugged in deeper to the outlets of our techy minds, and then tested by the first quarter square of Sun and Moon. This Saturday’s theme is around finding your muse–both human and otherwise. With Venus creating beautiful overtones with Uranus (sextile) it is time for mating. Today, the body goes electric!!!
Sunday: Moon in Virgo
Sundays are my favorite days. Not because it is the day of Christ, or because many say they are Fundays, but because there is a tangible signature of chill to them. The sky is mostly free of aspects today, with the exception of the Virgo Moon squaring Jupiter. Translation?: It is an auspicious day for cleaning up and getting things done. Make sure you don’t make your list too long though, Jupiter can overflow easily. Whistle while you work. Do whatever you need to do in making your duties ecstatic. The Zen and the Art of a Keeping it All Together–while staying calm.

Monday: Moon in Leo
This week starts off feeling like a caged Lion. Unable to experience the freedom we need to play, to roam, and to roar in the face of our opponents, we may find ourselves pacing back and forth, ruminating in our cyclic emotions. This is the Leo moON squaring off with both Saturn and Venus. It is ancient emotional conditioning holding us back from expressing our true hearts desire. We must remember this. What is it that is trying to leap and roll around inside. As the day progresses, we are assisted by Jupiter (via sextile), opening up channels of light showing us a better way out of Saturns dredges. The fiery MOon also harmonizes with the Sagittarius Sun, opening up a highway of energy in the center of our being, showing a Path out of this madness.
Join me for today’s show, in the exploration of the upcoming Leo New moON on Saturday. And it’s not just the New moON that is on my mind; it’s also Mercury Retrograde in Leo, TransPluto, Regulus, Elenin (still….), and–of course–Thor, and how he relates to them all. Give a listen, learn a little, and let me know what it makes you think.

We now discover the need to “hold it all together.” In the 6th house, we try our best to keep our lives in proper working order. This includes our bodies, as well as our ‘outer’ lives. Virgo, of course, relates to Service, Health, Healing, and Work, yet, there is something underlying these popular manifestations of Virgo, and it is Guilt. Mercury involved with Pluto–like we saw with the Gemini–has to do with the Mind, and how it interacts with its surroundings. Pluto creates trauma to our Rational Minds, it melts our Logic, and gives desperation and the fiendish need for the reason WHY (we must reorient ourselves). WIth the Virgoan side of Mercury, Pluto steals away our sense of control. Anxiety runs high here when unfortunate circumstances interfere with our tidy lil’ world; like when kids track mud, or you find out you have cancer spreading in your gut. Without another word, lets allow Jeff Green to briefly illuminate:
Pluto in the Sixth House or Virgo: emotional trauma can occur to these individuals for the following causes:
1. When life conditions occur in which the individual experiences an intense lack of meaning, or when their life conditions become meaningless. This sense of lack, of an existential void, generates a total state of crisis. This crisis is one of feeling totally displaced on an environmental basis, and a sense of acute inner aloneness in which they can feel victimized by the life conditions that they are experiencing.
2. When life conditions occur in which the individual feels intense persecution or criticism of an unjust nature. Not being able to understand why these conditions are contracted generates the trauma.
When Pluto transits the Sixth House, forms stressful aspects to Mercury, or to the planetary ruler of the Sixth House, or to planets in the natal Sixth House these issues and subsequent traumas can occur.
Funny, but one thing Jeff fails to mention in this one, is the importance of Health. In my practice, I have witnessed dozens of charts, in which people experience illness and healing crisis when Pluto is involved with this Archetype. As an example, Pluto transiting though the 6th house. 9 times out of 10, I see some sort of serious health problem emerge during this time. The purpose of this terrifying process, is to gain a greater appreciation and understanding of the body–and of life, in general. Lots of these folks go on to become remarkable healers. Another signature could be Pluto in the 6th house natally, and Saturn comes along via transit. This too can cause lots of health issues. Or Pluto transiting over Mercury would be another potent example. The correlation between Health, Guilt, and Healing is a rich topic, and I feel all the fine strands of this dark and shimmering web lie in your own inquisitive mind. If you or anyone else you know is experiencing this Plutonic event currently, make sure they know what is happening. Enlighten them about the underlying cause of their ills. Sometimes an Astrologer has just what it takes to dispel all the mistakes of the Mind. Sometimes, this is exactly what someone needs. Who said Astrology wasn’t healing?
…..as always, I’m offering Readings for all those interested.
