Jupiter Stations Direct
Happy Mother’s Day everyone, this is a picture of me with my only son, Andreas. Jupiter stations direct on Monday at 5:14 AM PDT. Jupiter is the planet that rules the broader perspective and good luck, among many other things. Unfortunately Jupiter is somewhat hampered in its expression in the sign of Virgo until early September. When Jupiter stations direct all of its beneficent energies are unleashed. Now is the time to make your dream into reality. Jupiter brings both opportunities and the faith that we will succeed. So thank your lucky stars and know that Jupiter is moving forward right by your side. There is, however, another aspect to Jupiter, as there is with all of the planets. Jupiter, even in the humble sign of Virgo, can expand into arrogance and vaulting ambition. Guard against this and earn your success through the careful planning and organization. Mercury Retrograde meets up with the Sun on Monday as well at 8:12 AM. This is not only the Inferior Conjunction but also a rare astronomical event called occultation as Mercury passes between the Earth and the Sun. The last time this occurred was in 2009 and the next one will be in 2019. See here for viewing times. As the Sun and Mercury are both in Taurus, this is a good time to contemplate what you truly value, and need to feel secure.
More Mercury Retrograde Activity
Mercury is busy all week with a trine to Pluto on Thursday at 7:45 PM, an opportunity for deep analysis and practical thought. And a conjunction with Venus on Friday at 12:10 PM, perfect for thoughts of love and art. Venus follows suit with a trine to Jupiter on Tuesday at 12 Noon, (Mercury misses this trine to Jupiter due to its Retrograde motion.) Venus trines Pluto on Friday at 7:20 PM for an intense amplification of desire. The Sun sextiles Chiron on Saturday at 12:46 PM generating an atmosphere of healing.
Void Moon Times
The Moon is Void in Gemini tonight from 9:15 PM until it enters Cancer at 10:24 AM tomorrow morning. Gemini is a frivolous and chatty Void, so postpone important Monday morning work until the Moon enters Cancer. A much longer Void to beware of is on Friday when the Leo Moon goes Void after squaring the Sun at 10:02 AM. The Moon does not enter Virgo until 10:52 PM that evening, so I suggest playing hooky from work or doing some creative brainstorming. Have a wonderful Mother’s Day and week.
