Astrological Almanac for Sunday, May 30, 2021

(All times Eastern) Mars trines Neptune after midnight tonight, so all day today and into some of tomorrow may be filled with action that is based on faith rather than reason. Emotions may be strong and we may feel a sense of adventure and even righteousness. But be careful with Neptune, who is always deceptive, and remember that Mercury is retrograde, so don’t rely too much on details. This afternoon the Moon trines the Sun and then squares Uranus before conjoining Saturn in his own sign. We could look to aggrandize ourselves or gain honors by being a bit too Read more…

Astrological Almanac for Saturday, May 29, 2021

(All times Eastern) Mercury turns retrograde at 6:34 pm. Check out my Mercury retrograde survival kit, and this link for Mercury retrogrades in 2021. Overall, we watch for snafus in communications, details, writing, buying and selling, logic, thinking, higher mind, etc., during this time. It always lasts about 3 weeks, but takes a bit longer for Mercury to really get moving again on the other side of this. The Moon opposes Mars late this morning, adding some possible tension to the first part of the day, especially for those with planets in late Cardinal signs (Capricorn, Cancer, Aries, Libra). At Read more…

Astrological Almanac for Friday, May 28, 2021

(All times Eastern) Mercury is quite slow now, turning retrograde tomorrow, and Venus catches up to him today. They’re in Mercury’s own sign of Gemini, but he may not be paying much attention as he’s putting on the brakes before the shift. We may find ourselves thinking quite a bit about friendships and creativity. But it’s a better time to recall or revisit the past, rather than to try to forge new relationships. The Moon trines Uranus tonight, heightening the shift away from emotion, but also not relying too much on logic, either. #dailystars #dailyastro #astrology #wheresthemoon

Astrological Almanac for Thursday, May 27, 2021

(All times Eastern) Today’s big aspect is the Venus square to Neptune, which brings a big dose of fantasy and emotional sensitivity, though with Venus in airy Gemini, it may not be as mushy as expected. We could still be quite impressionable now, especially those who have planets in the mid-late mutable signs (Gemini and Pisces, and to a lesser extent Sagittarius and Virgo). The Moon opposes Venus and quares Neptune this morning, then opposes Mercury this afternoon, strengthening the configuration and tending even more away from logic and clarity. At 10:23 pm Luna enters Capricorn, bringing the big ball Read more…
