Your Weekly Forecast 5/4-5/10

Updated: May 6, 2020

May the 4th be with you! 

May will be a powerful shift as Saturn, Venus and Jupiter all join the retrograde party with Pluto! This is going to be an interesting time for us all as we may have to backtrack and rethink plans that most likely, again, will not be working out the way we had anticipated. 

 Mercury, our planet of communication is another heavy hitter this week making aspects to the Sun, Jupiter, Pluto, and Neptune! This influences how we perceive our world, and how we articulate that to others. We may be working through our mental process around our productivity levels, having to strategize how we are going to get through this next month financially and emotionally. I know for myself I am already experiencing delays around finances in a way I was not thinking I was going to have to worry about. I am having to  heal fears and anxiety around that and get more practical about how I move forward financially over the summer months. One way I am coping with the anxiety was to schedule some much needed self care appointments with my therapist, reiki master, and physical therapist and am trying hard on my down time between work to take care of my mind, body and soul, as I feel extremely fragile, as many of us do during these uncertain times. 

I have been fortunate enough to have many people in my life support me and give things to me I couldn’t have ever imagined! I am just trying to remain open hearted, hopeful, and grateful as that is all we can do right now.

What helps us to lean into this energy right now will be our Full Moon hitting at 17 degrees of Scorpio on Thursday at 3:45 am PST. This moon is often referred to as the "Flower Moon." Flowers are a great symbology for the full moon. The full moon is often the culmination of all of the energy we planted during the new moon finally coming to fruition. After a flower blooms, it dies, and like a flower, the full moon begins to wane once it has hit its maximum brightness. This cycle is reflected within all the planets, but most significant to us visibly with our Moon.

This full moon will highlight insecurities under the surface around our ability to provide for ourselves materially, as well as what egoic attachments we have that we are being forced to let go of during this time. We may feel issues of jealousy and resentment begin to surface, a shadow quality of Scorpio. We need to go deep and reflect upon any of these feelings coming to surface, as they are calling out parts of ourselves that need healing so that we can grow past these mental and behavioral patterns that stunt our growth. Scorpio in its positive manifestation embodies wisdom and clear sight. I wrote a song with very Scorpionic themes a few years ago, and one of my favorite lines I wrote was “ I can read your heart through your eyes, telling tales of deception and lies.”

 This intuitive perception is a signature of Scorpio when Scorpio is operating in its wisdom state. We are able to intuit the truth when we have worked through the three levels of Scorpio. The first level of Scorpio, the lower level, is found within the symbology of the scorpion and other animals/insects that are considered “bottom feeders.” This is where we are easily ran by feelings of envy, jealousy, vengeance, and a need for power. When Scorpio evolves past the lower level it reaches the totem of the eagle. The eagle represents being able to transcend our lower levels of feelings and perceive them from above with clear sight, without reacting. The third level of Scorpio is found in the symbol of the phoenix. When we are finally able to completely burn away the entirety of any pattern or dynamic that is holding us back from spiritual growth. 

We will typically always be in a perpetual cycle of burning away some sort of dross of the lower realm, rising to the eagle, and starting over at the scorpion. It is part of the cyclic journey we go through in this life. Learning to live in harmony with this cycle is positive for us all, as we collectively burn way the dross of the previous world we once knew. Nothing will be perceived the same as it was pre-covid 19, and in my opinion we needed this. We needed this to find gratitude in the little things. This is a time to burn away the dross of your identity, especially if there are echoes of victimization and suffering. It is time to reclaim our power and rise to meet adversity with confidence. Harness your inner warrior (Mars) and fight for your future with love in your heart.

Come Sunday, we have an opportunity to unplug from ourselves and focus on the mothers of the world. The Empress ( ruled by Venus) is considered the mother in the tarot. Venus is ruler of Taurus season, and enables us to connect to the nurturing and loving qualities that are represented in the mother archetype. For some this holiday is difficult if your mother has passed on, or if you yourself do not have a healthy relationship with your mother. It is important we find ways to connect to our own inner mother, whether we are male, female, non-binary. The mother archetype is one that promotes life, nurturing, love, and growth. If you are unable to be with your mother today, or do not have your own mother in your life, acknowledge a mother who you do admire, and maybe just send her a text saying how much you appreciate the job she is doing in the world.
