Astrological update for the week of May 29-June 5, 2023

This week’s forecast will be shorter than usual because of the holiday and also because I was up too late watching Succession and then reading all of the Twitter wrap-up comments. 😃

Venus. The planetary energies are fairly quiet, but it’s an important week for Venus. Venus begins the week in harmonic bliss with Ceres and Neptune, facilitating healing and inspiration on an individual level but also easing the path to improved interpersonal connections. Venus is associated with relationships of all kinds, but also qualities of attraction and wealth that is both material and psychological, and when Venus is happy everyone is happy. Venus starts the week in Cancer where those family bonds take on greater importance, and that includes the tribe that we create for ourselves. The Moon enters Libra on Monday, and since Venus rules Libra and therefore the Moon, Monday and Tuesday are also highlighted by the gifts of Venus.

The Moon enters Scorpio on Wednesday 7:45 pm EDT and challenges Pluto, and things could get a little dicey then. The sweetness of Libra and Venus transmute into passion and intensity under Scorpio, so watch for some claws to come out of the soft paws in the velvet gloves of Venus.

Full Moon. Any stressors will fade when the Moon enters Sagittarius Thursday just after midnight EDT and the energies of the Sagittarius Full Moon begins. Under the Sagittarius Full Moon anything is possible – our heart is open and able to be filled with dreams and hopes. This Full Moon chart includes a harmonious exact trine from Pallas to the Moon signifying the role of higher intelligence (Pallas) in guiding our way. When our inspiration comes from the divine mind (Pallas) rather than our instinctive desires (Mars), success is assured and the way forward is lit with glory.

The Moon’s ruler Jupiter aligns with the North Node in Taurus, adding even more beneficial energies to this Full Moon, and Mercury, planet of the mind, align with Uranus to stimulate new ideas and awakening new thought pathways.

Venus enters Leo. Venus leaves sensitive Cancer for Leo on Monday. We’ll have a new forecast then but you might want to be aware that relationships needs will shift from the Cancerian mode of looking out for others to feelings that are a bit more self-oriented. In Leo Venus needs to be appreciated and valued, and all of us will experience that transition to one extent or another.

That’s it for me! I hope you have had a good holiday weekend.
