The energy this weekend starts out a bit serious and stern, but quickly shifts into a lovely opportunity for creativity, rest and escape from the daily grind. With the Moon moving into it’s disseminating phase, this is an excellent time to begin winding down projects, plans and intentions that began at the start of this lunar month and to enjoy the rewards of the hard work we’ve put in thus far.
Friday (5/4): No major planetary aspects. The Moon is in Capricorn today, making a conjunction to Saturn mid-afternoon. This indicates people’s energy will be more intensely focused on practical matters, and that our moods may become more somber & serious.
Capricorn is opposite Cancer (the moon’s “home”) and because of this, the moon is considered to be at its “detriment” in this sign. The world can feel a bit cold and closed off under the Capricorn moon. A greater emphasis is placed on duty and responsibility over nurturing and self-care. A sense of order and structure is provided, directing the emotional fluidity of the moon in a way that is more careful and calculated. There is a time and a place for feelings and emotions, and the Capricorn moon makes that very clear. Intuition is replaced with a more calculated and grounded approach to interpreting our experiences during this time. This is an ideal time to take responsibility for oneself and put in the necessary work.
Saturday (5/5): No major planetary aspects. The Moon is in it’s disseminating gibbous phase in Capricorn, making a harmonious trine with the Moon in Taurus. The Disseminating or Waning Gibbous phase marks the time when we may harvest the fruits of our labors. It is a time to gather the results of what was created during the lunar cycle so far and to begin to cultivate an understanding of what worked well and what did not. The Disseminating Moon is a phase of creative release, where we begin to relinquish control of the creative process in order to move forward into the cycle that follows.
Early this morning, the Moon will make harmonious aspects to Neptune and Jupiter, in addition to the Sun, indicating a brief period of positivity and escape from the daily grind. This energy is short-lived, however; as the Moon will make a difficult aspect to Mercury mid-morning, indicating difficulty in communication, decision-making and emotional expression, followed by a super intense conjunction to Pluto and Mars. The Moon’s conjunction with Pluto and Mars indicates the potential for intense focus and concentration, aligning our intuition with our willpower and strengthening our resolve. On the flip side, this aspect brings emotional intensity and turbulence, which may cause some to be a bit short-tempered under this explosive influence.
Sunday (5/5): The Sun in Taurus today comes into a harmonious sextile with Neptune in Pisces, heightening our compassion, creativity, and intuition. This aspect deepens empathy and connection to those around us, and helps us to put ourselves in the shoes of others. This is an excellent time for rest, relaxation, and more productive means of escape through fantasy and creativity.
The Moon today goes Void-of-Course at 6:48am after an emotionally disruptive aspect to Uranus. The Moon moves into Aquarius at 7:48am, where it will remain for the next 2.5 days. The Aquarius moon is enigmatic. While it brings a sort of voyeuristic emotional detachment in our close relationships, there is also a deeply felt sense of connection with humanity and the world at large. There may be a resistance to the ideas and beliefs of others all the while new inspiration and insight might come about intuitively from out of the blue. This is a great time for innovation, technology and doing things that are outside of the norm. Humanitarian pursuits are favored at this time, and it may prove easier to rally people together for a common cause.
