May 9: Seeking Creative Escape

Mercury is trine Pluto Rx at 6:17 a.m.

Moon is inconjunct the sun at 8:35 a.m.

Moon is square Neptune at 10:14 a.m.


Saturday opens with Mercury in dependable Taurus forming an earth trine with Pluto in authoritative Capricorn. This opens up an opportunity to have constructive conversations about some of the more serious and pressing matters that are occurring now. The main topics that pop up today may be financial, and we may be finding new ways to manage our resources for the long term. 


Later in the morning, the moon forms an inconjunct angle with the sun in abundant Taurus, adding a little restlessness to the morning. Shortly after, the moon moves along on its course to form a square aspect with illusory Neptune in Pisces. This may amplify the restless emotions of the day, temping us to want to seek creative escape and evasion.

Moon is opposite Venus at 12:13 p.m.


Just after noon, the moon in roving Sagittarius forms an opposition with Venus in Gemini, bringing emotional and relational matters to a head. This opposition is highlighting a need to express what is in the heart in a more bold and forthright way, and today may be the time to do so. It can symbolize a welling up of restless energy, with the opposition may provide a release. Sagittarius wants to acknowledge the big picture, while Gemini examines the details, so it’s time to try and hold these polar realities in balance as they come up in love and attraction.
