Sunday, MAY 22
The Last Quarter Moon occurs this afternoon when the Sun in Gemini forms a square to the Moon in Pisces. This phase of the Moon points to a possible crisis of consciousness. We’ve processed recent epiphanies, and we begin to see what works for us–and what doesn’t–in preparation for next week’s New Moon when something new is born again. It’s not an ideal time to start a significant project, as the decreasing light of the Moon symbolizes descent into unconsciousness. Instead, it’s time to finish up details or tie up loose ends.
Mars forms a sextile to Pluto, bringing a stronger ability to focus. It feels natural to pursue our goals and satisfy our desires under this influence. We’re better at strategy now, and ambitions and determination increase. We’re getting in touch with what we want and devising plans to pursue it. We benefit from a patient and deliberate approach rather than pushing for immediate action.
Also today, retrograde Mercury moves back into the sign of Taurus. While it will stay in Taurus until June 13th, Mercury will remain retrograde only until June 3rd. Retrograde Mercury periods tend to send us looking to the past for further or previously hidden information. The Moon continues its transit of Aquarius until it moves into Pisces at 11:50 AM EDT.
The void Moon occurs from 3:20 AM EDT, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (a conjunction to Saturn), until the Moon enters Pisces at 11:50 AM EDT.
