May 28: It Doesn’t Have to Make Sense Right Now

May 28: It Doesn’t Have to Make Sense Right Now

Moon is sextile Venus Rx at 6:30 a.m., and moon void of course begins

Mercury enters Cancer at 11:09 a.m.

Early morning, the moon in courageous Leo forms a sextile aspect with Venus in lively Gemini, starting the day off with a creative, and somewhat romantic vibe. With the moon in an active fire sign and Venus in an active air sign, the two mingle in a complementary way to kindle energy, initiative, and spontaneity.

We may feel bold enough to say what is in our hearts and inspired to act on impulse. It’s an aspect of fun and feel-good activities, and with the moon void of course until tomorrow morning, it permits us to relax, and indulge a little now. Later in the morning, Mercury leaves mischievous Gemini behind for emotive Cancer, turning our collective thoughts and communications to nurturing and protection.


Moon is inconjunct Neptune at 12:36 p.m.

In the afternoon, the moon begins a series of inconjunct passages that begin with Neptune in soulful Pisces. Leo and Pisces share nothing in common elementally as signs, so the planetary forces involved are at a disconnected. Feelings and inspiration are not easily tapped into the deep, mystical workings of the universe for a little while. It’s an afternoon of passion, movement, and exploration that doesn’t need to have a deeper meaning or purpose to be engaging.

Moon is inconjunct Pluto at 7:31 p.m.

Moon is inconjunct Jupiter Rx at 11:17 p.m. 

The proud moon in Leo continues its inconjunct journey well into the night, moving on to form this awkward angle with Pluto, and Jupiter a few hours later. Similar to the feeling of the afternoon, the spontaneous and dramatic mood of the moment is not directly engaged with the deeper themes of societal transformation, and steady expansion.

On some level, the enjoyment of the evening has everything to do with the bigger picture, and as all is interconnected, it just doesn’t have to make sense right now. With the moon still void of course, there is an opportunity to pause and forget about productivity for the rest of the night.
