Week of May 20th – May 26th, 2013

So just what does the cosmos have in store for you this next week? This week will pack a cosmic punch because we’ll experience the revolution of Uranus square Pluto and a potent Lunar Eclipse all within a few days. You might not feel steady with the entire significant energetic shift happening, however the Universe doesn’t want you to stand in place. Sometimes, the Universe needs to light a fire under us to remind us to get moving. This will be one of those weeks, although admittedly it may be difficult for you to see past the smoke and sudden changes at first.

Relationship dynamics can’t help but be a little shaky with the unpredictable Uranus-Pluto square hitting its exact mark on Monday. Luckily, the Sun shifts into flirty Gemini on the same day to add a little lighthearted fun to the week. We are rewarded with a dreamy Memorial Day weekend, which is better for indulging in fantasy than keeping things real. An adventurous Sagittarius Full Moon late Friday night raises hopes but reduces good judgment. Be careful on the roads and other drivers.

This Lunar Eclipse on Friday squares imaginative Neptune, teasing us with a taste of Divine Love. Yet this spiritual connection will take time, testing, and commitment to make it more than just a passing fancy or a figment of our imaginations.

Eclipses usually come in pairs, and they usually happen twice a year; but this year we have three eclipses in a row in the Spring 2013. Eclipses always occur on the new and full moons, and these eclipses are: a Scorpio lunar (Full Moon), a Taurus solar (New Moon), and then another Sagittarius lunar on May 24, 2013.

Eclipses bring changes, and most of us find change uncomfortable and usually unwanted, to say the least. No one likes the upset of the Status Quo. When the Sun and Moon line up exactly with respect to the Earth, their gravitational pull is always stronger. It is said that an eclipse has ten times the power of a normal New or Full Moon. Eclipses can stimulate relationship breakups, business failures, sudden accidents, babies to be born, and the elderly to pass over. They can also bring positive changes like new love and promotions at work, however most of us will experience extra challenges in our paths during the energy of an eclipse, which can have a lasting effect of up to six months.

The eclipse on May 25th will be a Full Moon lunar eclipse. This eclipse is subtle and may require an expert to recognize the energetic change. This lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes through the fringe of the Earth’s shadow. Even though this eclipse is one of the “weakest” of all the eclipses, this one in Sagittarius will still make us stand up and take notice, because the Pluto-Uranus square will hit its peak just a few days before the eclipse. This promises to effect world affairs.

It is very likely that we will experience the effects of this eclipse up to a week before the actual event. But, the day of the eclipse, Thursday evening and Friday, could be especially difficult as well. This time the Moon will be in Sagittarius, while the Sun is in Gemini, and these two mutable signs are going to line up with Neptune in Pisces to make a nasty T-square.

When Neptune is afflicted, we often turn to our addictions for comfort. Many will be overindulging for this eclipse, and misunderstandings and acts of stupidity are possible. If you want to come through this eclipse relatively unscathed, think like a Gemini, and be flexible! Let go of your agenda, and let the Universe take you through the energies, moment by moment. Again, be sure to use extra caution driving, and watch out for the drunk driver.

It would be good to take a little adventure at the end of the month. The USA Memorial Day holiday on the 27th has Mercury aligning with Jupiter, and the beaches and lakes open up for the summer. This is a great time for a short trip into nature.

There is another of the seven Uranus square Pluto aspects that are occurring between June 2012 and March 2015. Because this challenge between “throwing a revolution” and “playing it safe” is going on for so long a period, you may not notice it. However you will see it in the way the US Congress and the Washington delegates behave, as well as in other countries political systems. Upsets and revolts have been threatening and demonstrating this power game for some time. Expect to see some sudden and surprising events over the next few weeks in the news.

It would be useful to create new ways to increase your freedom and still be responsible. Be social early in the week under the Libra moon. The energy becomes more emotionally intense on Wednesday as the moon moves into Scorpio bringing in another lunar eclipse.

The Lunar Eclipse is on Friday, May 24th in Sagittarius and Gemini. The majority of the planets are now in the adaptable signs of Gemini, Sagittarius and Pisces. This is the third of three eclipses in a month, so take some time for yourself if you are feeling emotionally raw. Because this eclipse energy is caught up in a challenging T-Square, the ability to be flexible comes with the requirement that you must be adaptable now. When T-Square energies pull at you from three directions simultaneously, you must find a way for contradictory things to work together in your life.

  • Visionary Neptune is asking you to stop and meditate in order to create a higher view for your life.
  • Several planets in curious Gemini are urging you to try new things, and their busyness is just too, well, busy take the time to stop to meditate.
  • Your emotions represented by the Full Moon in Sagittarius just wants to escape into a new adventure and not be bothered with the needs of your little world.

The solution comes through ambitious Mars in Taurus. This sign is known for working hard to bridge the gap between the pioneer and the cultivator. Take actions in the months ahead that help you pioneer new paths, without forsaking the parts of your life that are still working.

The adventurous Sagittarius Full Moon continues on Saturday with the morning being more supportive of activity and adventure than the evening. Enjoy a quiet day on Sunday, because the Moon moves into hard-working Capricorn on Monday the 27th. Since this is the USA Memorial Day holiday weekend, a small obstacle is created. Part of you wants to be responsible and accomplish practical matters, but quick-paced Mercury aligns with freedom loving Jupiter on the 27th. You may just want to sleep in and then go to the beach. The best solution is to mix business with pleasure on Monday.
