We’re coming off of the intense energy of Mars in opposition to Saturn, which came exact on Monday creating friction and tension between our will to act and our limitations and responsibilities. As we move further into the week, the energy lightens up significantly, especially as we come into Wednesday and Thursday with beneficial aspects between Mercury and Pluto as well as Venus and Saturn. Mercury trine Pluto sharpens our minds and helps us to see through the veil and to think much more clearly while Venus and Saturn in a harmonious trine brings structure and stability to our relationships and finances in a gentle and positive way.
Tuesday (5/30): If you’ve been experiencing any tense, frustrating or limiting situations over the holiday weekend, Mars in sextile to Uranus in Aries may bring flashes of insight or inspiration that assist us in dealing with the issues at hand. Many benefits can be experienced when we actively engage with the energy of a sextile, as this planetary aspect supports us in making all the right moves. With Uranus in the mix, the key here is to take action in a way that is new, innovative and very different than the approaches we’ve used in the past.
Wednesday (5/31): Mars sextiles the North Node in Leo today while making a trine to the South Node in Aquarius, indicating that now is a time when fate can step in to assist us in initiating action to assist us in letting go of that which no longer serves us in order to connect us to our own innate inner authority and move us into a more authentic, heart-centered way of connecting with the world around us. Pay attention to signs and synchronicities as you move through the day today as strange and seemingly fated circumstances may arise to give us all a gentle nudge in the right direction. ☺
Mercury in grounded, earthy Taurus makes a beautiful trine over to Pluto in Capricorn today, causing our thoughts and communications to become more focused and intense. This is an excellent aspect for getting to the truth of practical, Earthly matters and is an ideal time to uncover secrets that have been kept hidden in a way that allows us to integrate new information easily and seamlessly. This is a very restorative and regenerative aspect for the mind from which we all can benefit after the chaotic couple of weeks many of us have had.
Finally, we have Venus in Aries coming into conjunction with Eris, the goddess dwarf planet associated with change and discord. In conjunction with Venus, Eris reveals information to us about our relationships that has been rejected and repressed. Eris represents information that is often obvious to others that has been denied and cast out of our conscious in an attempt to thwart the perceived threat of chaos and maintain the status quo. Eris has been in conjunction with Uranus on-and-off since June of 2016, and this influence is still quite strong bringing unexpected circumstances and flashes of insight that reveal the Truth that has been hidden in plain sight all along. Combined with the influence of Venus, the Truth that is exposed may involve close relationships, material matters and finances. The energy of Uranus and Eris can be quite intense, but is somewhat softened by the benefic influence of Venus.
Thursday (6/1): Venus begins to come out of its exact aspect with Eris into conjunction with Uranus all the while trining Saturn in Sagittarius today. This aspect merges the planet of love, money, beauty and sensuality with the planet of structure, stability, boundaries and lessons in a beautiful and harmonious way, effortlessly providing a more solid foundation for both relationship and financial matters. Venus in trine with Saturn brings greater security in relationships, but with Eris and Uranus in the mix we must take calculates risks and integrate parts of ourselves which have been denied and repressed in order to fully reap the rewards of this harmonious transit.
Overall, this week is looking to flow much more easily than the week prior, with many beneficial and harmonious aspects assisting us across many areas of life. I hope you all enjoy the energy this week! Thank you all so much for your love and support and be sure to check back on Thursday for the weekend forecast! ☺
