Weekly Horoscope for May 17-23

Sunday am: the Moon is in Pisces
Veg out – escape into a marathon of your favorite show, take a nap, read a book that you can get lost in, etc.

Sunday pm, Monday,
Tuesday: the Moon is in Aries
There is a New Moon coming at the end of this week, so put on your speedy shoes and get all the loose ends of this month quickly tied up.

Wednesday, Thursday, Friday am: the Moon is in Taurus
Slow down, tread gently, exercise patience, remain calm –  it’s good to be quiet right before a new moon.

Friday pm (New Moon), Saturday: the Moon is in Gemini
If some new information comes your way, consider it judiciously and then get in touch with a couple of other people and ask their opinions on the subject.

When reading this weekly horoscope, check your astrology chart to find which house (section of your chart) has the current Moon sign on the cusp (the beginning edge) & apply forecast information to that area of your life as well.

For example, if the Moon is in Leo and one of the suggestions is to entertain – however Leo is located in the 12th house of your chart, which is an inward energy place…then have a small, quiet gathering. By contrast, if Leo is located in the 1st house of your chart, an outward energy place…have a party!

It is also interesting to note when the current Moon is in the same sign as your birth Moon and to see how the flavor of that day carries through the following 30 days.

Current Planet Positions:
Sun –
Taurus until May 21, then Gemini
Mercury –
Gemini until May 29
Venus – Gemini until Aug. 8
(retrograde May 13 – June 25)
Mars – Pisces until June 28
**Jupiter – Capricorn until Dec. 20
**Saturn – Capricorn until Dec. 17
Uranus –
Taurus until Apr. 26, 2026
Neptune – Pisces until Mar. 30, 2025
**Pluto – Capricorn until Nov. 20, 2024

**Note: Saturn & Pluto (the two astrological heavy-hitters) are conjunct in Capricorn until mid-Dec. 2020. Regard and carry out your responsibilities seriously. You may have to reconstruct part or all of your foundation.

Jupiter in Capricorn joins Saturn for the rest of its transit and can exaggerate all of the heavy-duty (literally ‘duty’) Saturn stuff. On the other hand, it could possibly mellow some of the Saturn situations.

Pallas (see below) is also in Capricorn – until early Dec. of this year. This asteroid may be invigorating and help you keep your aim straight and true.

Additionally, keep in mind that Capricorn is Saturn’s home base sign and that accomplishments and achievements are also likely, so give yourself praise where praise is due.

Current Asteroid Positions:
Ceres –
Pisces until Feb. 22, 2021
**Pallas –
Capricorn until Dec. 8
Juno – Libra until Sept. 21
Vesta –
Gemini until June 4
Chiron – Aries until May, 2027

Current Asteroid Transits:
Ceres Practice extreme self-care & pampering.
Pallas – There can be a feeling of being in the right place at the right time, kind of like something magic happened.
Juno – With the partnership asteroid (Juno) in the sign that rules love commitments (Libra), there is a year-long emphasis on those two things.
Vesta – People may be very interested in some information that you pass along.
Chiron – Release pent-up anger; chart a new course for yourself.

Note: Weekly horoscope time frames for Moon signs, void-of-course periods, and current planet & asteroid positions are noted for Eastern time zone (USA). Please adjust according to your own location. Times are not given if the void-of-course Moon occurs for a very short period or if it occurs during the night (based on same Eastern time zone).

**v/c = Void-of-Course – When the Moon is void-of-course, spend time working on projects already in progress, creative endeavors, or self-improvement. Void-of-course simply means that no planets are aspecting the Moon as it gets ready to change signs; there won’t be a configuration of astro energy available to utilize. It’s best not to start new projects, sign important agreements, or go shopping when the Moon is void-of-course because the result will probably be unsatisfactory in some way.

∗Mercury Retrograde – the speed of the planet slows down considerably. Communications, paperwork, electronics, traffic and mail can become very mixed-up, delayed, or go on the ‘fritz’ during this time. A situation will be in the process of changing, so wait until Mercury is direct to finalize anything. In general, maintain a slower, more cautious pace in daily affairs. Always allow at least two days before (to slow down) and after (to resume regular activities) a Mercury retrograde period. (Read More about Mercury Retrograde including direct & in station)
