Predictions for May 24 to 28, 2012

Thursday, May 24 Mercury biquintiles Saturn early on (more for European time zones), which may bring on a greater degree of pessimism or defeatism in thinking and interacting. News may take on a darker cast (maybe not good for Facebook’s IPO), and there could be blockages to the flow of communications because of numerous reasons. Perseverance in concentration, however, may bring new levels of organization and analysis. Friday, May 25 Mercury biquinting Pluto may bring on obsessive and compulsive behaviors. Some people may go too far into the deep end; but for some the deep end is where all the gold is. Sun conjunct the South Node may bring powerful spiritual and karmic connections and revelations; however Mercury also squaring Neptune may make it difficult to reliably perceive and to therefore act on issues. Deception and self-deception may be an obstacle; and spiritual ideas today may have the potential to be WAY off. Saturday, May 26 Mercury conjunct the South Node today may bring important intellectual, communicative, and interpersonal connections; albeit of the subtle brand of things, and not quite easily understood by the masses. Sunday, May 27 Venus tridecile Neptune may bring wonderful new emotional, romantic, or ideological developments to life; artistic sense may be enhanced, and the deeper aspects of life may be more appreciated by all. Be careful of letting the sense of the potential totally...

A Heck of a Week

Predictions for May 15 to 21, 2012: Venus Retrograde, Solar Eclipse on May 20th   Get ready for a week to remember, there will be a sustained level of intense factors hitting us in succession. Venus turns retrograde, Mars and Saturn make a hard aspect, Jupiter and Pluto aspect, and then there is a powerful solar eclipse to culminate it all on Sunday, May 20. I’ll try to describe them all:   Venus retrograde: the planet basically comes to a stop in the sky and takes on the appearance of moving backwards for a period of time. A planet moving retrograde (not literally, of course) implies looking back, reviewing, or even pausing or hesitating.. Therefore, the activities associated with Venus; relationships, artistic endeavors, and being able to live and enjoy the good life, may go through a period of delays, redress, or just may seem to take strange turns.   Retrograde would be considered to be an affliction to a planet’s expression, so it may be just a little harder to connect or experience that love that we otherwise normally do. Retrograde planets also will mean the spiritualization of a planet’s expression, since spirituality is more of an internal experience, and not as easily understood, or accurately assessed just by looking at the external circumstances.   Mars and Saturn aspecting each other can bring out the worst feelings of...

The Tempo of Astrology

Predictions May 8 to 14, 2012 Lots if intermediate level astrological events this week.  Then next week there looks to be another step up of the tempo of the astrology, look for next week’s predictions column for more into.  Tuesday and Wednesday this week look to be the most impactful; then early next week things heat up.  This Sunday, the 12th looks to be pretty outstanding, good configurations to make affairs go well. I’m still in the process of getting the site up to the level of where I envision it to be, there may be a few more delays  to getting new articles for another week or so yet.  Tuesday, May 8Aggressive, reactionary, and violent energies may be coming out; events and situations may have a shocking or unsettling feel to them. The Universe however sometimes has to resort to radical means to separate us from our obsolete patterns; and a good little “wake up” nudge can do amazing things. Staying calm of course is the best tactic in any situation, because most urgent, alarming, or crisis-like situations soon pass with a sense of normalcy resserting itself. Sometimes we need to make bold decisions or act boldly on our decisions, for nothing speaks louder than our actions. (Mars quincunx Uranus) Wednesday, May 9Continuing from yesterday, relaxation or more internal, passive pursuits may not be the requirement of the...

Predictions May 3 to 7, 2012

New content!  Thursday, May 3At some point of the day there could be moments of tension, urgency, and alarm; but hopefully peace ensuing quickly thereafter. Electronics and communication may sputter and spit. In other areas relationship dynamics will be examined, possibly with biased and overly-optimistic eyes; but cordiality should flow later on. (Mercury sesquiquadrate Mars, Mercury sextile Venus, Juno square Neptune) Friday, May 4Energy and vitality may be subtly elusive, and it may be hard indeed to discern truth from fiction. Some may walk very adroitly between honor and guile. Physical sensitivities may flare, addictive and/or escapist behaviors may surface. Creativity and spirituality will be favored. (Sun quintile Neptune) Saturday, May 5A pessimism may overshadow thought and action, possibly producing an inhibiting, suppressing effect. People may be tempted to see things in black and white only, projecting the darkest of their psyches onto others. Persevering folk however will make progress in overcoming prejudice, bias, and censure; as well as see resolutions to things otherwise considered hopeless. (Mercury opposite Saturn) Sunday, May 6Communication in relationships will be accented; this may be a good time to sit down with that important person in your life. (Mercury biquintile Juno) Monday, May 7Unusual, exciting, and potentially positive developments may be at hand; especially if they be acted on with determination, instead of just discussed. Also at times deep and mysterious subjects may be...
