MAY 1

Art by Hilma Af Klimt

Today is BELTANE, the halfway point between the Spring equinox and the Summer solstice. This is a time when life is bursting forth. We can be JOYOUS, full, and celebratory. Lust and PASSION are featured in celebration of this time, so connection with our pleasure-focused, animal, sensual self is aligned with the season. 


We are also being beckoned toward what is most healing at this time, but perhaps not in the softest of ways. The beginning of May is here to challenge us a bit and today we feel a hint of it. MOON CONJUNCT CHIRON IN ARIES highlights the new Chiron mission we have been on since February that is largely focused on healing THE SELF, our own INDIVIDUATION, and the WARRIOR in us that has the courage to do healing work. SATURN Rx ON THE SOUTH NODE (Saturn stationed retrograde April 29th and remains retro until September 6th) is a strong call to review the STRUCTURE of our lives and what we are carrying that’s purely a legacy habit vs. part of our genuine MISSION here that is connected to our soul. 


As the Mercury-Jupiter trine forms over the next few days, our minds and speech are more buoyant, hopeful, solution-seeking. There can be a desire to OVER-PROMISE, so be aware of that on both your part and others’, yet that aside it can bring us the big-picture thinking we need while tending such deep roots. Mars also moves to oppose Jupiter and some tricky astro is ahead the next week, so start practicing your CALM approach now. Take a PAUSE when you need. Things can get bigger than they need to be when Jupiter is involved! Take some of that fire and use it for Beltane celebration.

MAY 2

It’s a fiery day! The Moon meets up with Venus in Aries and there’s a general SIZZLE in the background as Mars nears it’s conjunction with Jupiter. This will build over the next few days, so there are some things to keep in mind. Impulsivity might be extra-tempting, so keep your long-term goals in mind (especially the ones mentioned in your audio horoscopes). Big moves are most effective with some strategy behind them so if an action is appealing simply to feel like things are moving faster than they are, maybe just sit tight and find another outlet like exercise or sex. 


Mercury squaring all the Cap placements has been illuminating, and perhaps frustrating, so today/tomorrow when the Moon is doing the same, we will likely be taking some steps toward the sh*t that needs to be HANDLED. Action is curative! Do the dirty work, boring work, whatever it is you need to do to set yourself up for lusher second half of March/next ten months.  

MAY 3

How’s that Saturn-South Node conjunction feeling? This is past life, childhood habits, family secrets, hidden part of ourselves being brought into the LIGHT, sometimes with gnarly outcomes. It can also bring that same light to things you just know deep in your being, awareness that has been lodged and is now ready for release, processing, utilization. Remember that being clear and not-in-avoidance of these things is what builds future alignment. It will be worth it. 


Tomorrow Lilith moves into Pisces for nine months bringing a slinky, sexy, courtesan-like energy to the atmosphere. It’s time to access the feminine in both the wildest and softest ways, to use our intuition and healing capacities for subversive ends. She is the dangerous wild feminine and the shift in her placement will be felt. She’s much more at home in the deep waters of Pisces than in Aquarius where she has been. Make an offering to the water or a water goddess. Appreciate your depths.  

MAY 6

Today we have a Gemini Moon! The Moon in Gemini is an especially abundant time now while we have Jupiter in Sagittarius, as the Moon pings off the part of our chart that is most expanded under this transit. Remember that Jupiter is currently retrograde so it’s time to tend and assess your personal expansion since November. Which dreams have soared? Which have flopped? What needs a rework? These next few days of the Gemini Moon give us some juice in looking at that. They also make us want to be grand, grandiose, and perhaps over-express, over-promise, or just be indulgent in our feelings. Mars opposing Jupiter says go big or go home… and going home is exactly what you should do if going big won’t be worth it in the end! Impulsivity is a theme of the day, so be aware. 


Venus squaring Saturn and the South Node over the next few days brings developments in stuck money and love scenarios. That said, it’s not the fuzziest feeling astro. If you need to win someone’s favor or rely on another’s good mood to get what you want, wait a few more days. Squares catalyze and get us to face a rut and take action. So, if you’re seeing limits in finances or feeling more disconnected from affection or care than you would like, do a bit of journaling on what is “in the way” of the flow you’re seeking.  

MAY 7

Art by Lisa Ostapinksi

The Venus-Saturn square is exact today. The astro wants us to put in the work and not take shortcuts that cost us more time in the end. Same advisory from yesterday on the possible lack of general goodwill in effect. It’s one of the harsher days this month. Tonight the Moon meets up with Mars so no texting while driving or anything reckless. Be as gentle with yourself and others as you can under the circumstances. 


 That said, we’ve already made it through most of the tricky entry into May. Lusher days lie ahead later in the month. The next few days highlight the Sun-South Node trine which is excellent! This is the opportunity to really build solutions and find more self-actualized peace around our personal Saturn-South Node themes (a huge focus of the month, as mentioned in your audio horoscopes). Starting now there is a helpful energy in progress on issues that feel as if they’ve been stuck for centuries or longer. You can take a new step forward at any time. You can drop a heavy piece of baggage just the same, no matter how long you’ve been carrying it. 

MAY 8

Collage by Dariah Lazatova

Venus square Pluto the next few days brings up compulsions and power struggles. Beware surges of jealousy or possessiveness. That said, there’s also a formidable power that can be harnessed here, one that engages desire for wealth, pleasure, and mogul-status. This astro can be worked well internally but can be a bit prickly in relationship. Working shit out honestly is great. It has to happen sometime right? Surrendering to lower compulsions, also possible, would be less ideal. 


A trine between Venus and Jupiter is also building so this will bring in some optimism, buoyancy, and brightness. Mercury conjunct Uranus brings new perspectives, freudian slips, and surprise messages. You’re ready to strategize the ascent that will happen between now and 2026. There’s electricity in the air! Sometimes this turns to anxiety, so if you’re feeling that makes sure to ground yourself.  

MAY 9

Art by David Stenbeck

The Sun is illuminating the South Node today and tomorrow! Let the light in. Take inventory of what what has felt shadowy, shameful, or hard to navigate so far this month. Is there help and support you need? More resources? The Sun arriving here says WE CAN. The essence of who we are wants to be expressed and it can build on/with our past rather than work against or try to bury it. Have you ever had tea and cake with demons? Befriending a demon and hearing it out is one path to liberation. Feeding Your Demons by Tsultrim Allione is a good book on this. 


The moon is in Cancer, so you’ll also want to take a bath, cook a delicious meal, spend time with someone to whom you’re heart-connected. Nurture. There’s electricity in the air! Sometimes this turns to anxiety, so if you’re feeling that makes sure to ground yourself. 


Venus trine Jupiter today and exact tomorrow lifts our spirits. Make the grand gesture. Believe in love again. Laugh from your heart. 

MAY 10

Art by Joey Cortez

Yesterday’s themes continue so check back with yesterday’s post! The past few months have been showing us something very important: the cracks in the foundation of what we want to create between now and January 2020. This can be like a preview of a rock bottom we would hit were we not aware of what needs to change. This could be something quite subtle or it could be absolutely central to your life. Wherever you’re at now, keep taking the necessary steps. Today’s astrology shines a spotlight on what could be supportive or what is absolutely necessary to getting where you want to go.

MAY 11

Art by Sage Aune

Mercury meets with asteroid Hygeia, goddess of health and hygiene, as the Sun trines Saturn. Today is absolutely about health, nourishment, and alignment. Saturn rules the teeth and bones and is very much about STRUCTURE. Are you ready to start a new health or healing practice in your life, return to one, or pay attention to lingering wellness issue? How can caring for the health of your body and your space be a power source? Moon trine Jupiter late tonight is juicy and optimistic. 

MAY 12

Art by alphachanneling.com

Sun trine Pluto builds over the next few days. This is about POWER. Personal power and collective power. Venus sextile Mars is sexy and brings a really creative energy. Go after what you want now. Some of the tricky stuff has cleared and we’re not yet at the mid-month wild ride of the Full Moon. The Leo Moon asks for glamour, boldness, and adoration. And the moon is still waxing. What are you bringing to life now? How can you choose aliveness today?  

MAY 13

    meme by @Inked.Mystic

Yes, we are still with Sun trine Pluto vibe which is about harnessing personal and collective power, AND keep in mind there is a very strong Saturn energy happening. We might be working incredibly hard, or be feeling like we should be working more but there are obstacles. Saturn says “no”. So it might be that you are needing to tell people no or perhaps even yourself. Boundary setting with our own self is one of the most powerful things we can do. A loving boundary around our schedule or behavior makes a perfect magical container. Notice where you are pushing yourself too hard and could use a boundary to bring in some ease, or where you're caving to impulse rather than building the strong muscles of choosing new behaviors.

MAY 14

Art by alphachanneling.com

There’s a juicy energy in the air today! The Venus-Mars sextile is exact today and that amps up flirtations, dates, attractions, and creative impulse. It’s a good day for creating, wooing, or going after something close to your heart. Sending yourself some love, taking yourself on a date, or some solo sensual practice is lovely too. Venus is nearing the end of her time in Aries and will soon be in Taurus, a much more comfortable placement for her. What you’re feeling now might be the prelude to what develops then. That said, Mars overpowers Venus in this little dance they are doing and Saturn still dominates the overall vibe, so there’s definitely an Emperor type feeling of wanting to take charge, be in charge, be powerful, be right. This can be energizing or a bit dangerous - obviously how it’s applied makes all the difference! It’s a bit more prickly when it comes to re-gaining someone’s good graces or accessing a difficult person’s sentimentality, but moving toward a solid goal is supported.

MAY 15

Portrait of Lizzo Beating by Mary Purdie @drawnbymary

We are about to enter a few days of a major shift in energy plus the frenetic vibe of the full moon. There’s definitely a potent magical quality available and a high potential for emotionality or larger than life reactions. If it energizes you, great! Or, if you’re sensitive and feeling drained, make some plans to lay low with your own magic as this all unfolds. 


At 6:01a EST, Venus enters Taurus! She loves to be in this sign and this casts a sensual, lush, and fertile spell over the coming weeks. You can honor her entry into her sign by lighting a green or pink candle or having a delicious meal. She can attract wealth, love, and stability, so we will definitely be working with her in our magic soon too.

MAY 16

We have another sign change today: Mars into Cancer. It was actually at 11:09p EDT last night, so this is the first full day. This is quite different from Venus moving into Taurus because Mars struggles a bit in the sign of Cancer. This means in the coming weeks, Mars energy is a little less predictable. We’ll want to be mindful of our aggression and how we use it and to be aware of the potential for moodiness. Like all challenged placements, Mars in Cancer has a lesson to teach. In this case, it’s often about honoring the cycles of our emotions and needs, and growing beyond the desire to do things like silent treatment or have big blow-ups when upset. Having a rich emotional life is a very beneficial thing so long as we honor it! 


The Libra Moon squares the South Node-Saturn-Pluto configuration we keep talking about (it’s important!) so we might feel an urge to reach out and connection with someone from the past, or to talk to someone about the life experiences we’ve been reviewing. It may feel like a non-stop montage of the past that’s been coming up lately but trust you’ll come out clearer and stronger for all the review. 


Venus applies to conjoin Uranus (exact tomorrow) so we are feeling the wild, electric energy of this new Uranus in Taurus era. This time is opening a window into what we have in store between now and 2026, especially our heart’s longing. Things up for reinvention: relationships, our personal values, our money. Put your proverbial life where your mouth is!

MAY 17

Art by @harleyandj

Venus conjunct Uranus today and a building Full Moon. Something very important is happening for each of us on our personal Taurus-Scorpio axis at this time; that is where the pot is being stirred. (see your full moon horoscopes for more on this!) This is also very much a WITCH moon. With Lilith newly in Pisces, Mars in Cancer, and the Moon in Scorpio the magical energy is WATER blending with the potent EARTH of Taurus. Fertile for planting, excellent for investing in what you truly care about. It’s not good astrology for needing to “fake it” in any way though. Small talk, anything that strikes you as inane, or what simply feels like a bad investment will be much less tolerable. If you’re needing any kind of personal revolution in your own values and how they’re expressed, your relationship structures and priorities, or how you handle money - it’s your time!


That said, be aware today is potentially emotional and there could be temptation to go big in what we do or how we express. What happens in relationships, for example, could be sudden and jarring but have lasting effects. Or let’s say you’re getting a totally new hair color or style, it’s not the best day for something pleasing and demure. Use this energy for the quakes you want, but avoid the ones that could have unnecessarily unpleasant aftershocks.

MAY 18

Art by Pigo Lin

Full Moon exact at 5:10p EDT this evening so we are under the full moon energy all day! Refer to you Full Moon guide and horoscopes as well please. The Scorpio Full Moon also carries a very Lilith-reminiscent energy and Lilith newly in Pisces is bringing a compatible and very strong energy now. I wrote a guide on Lilith in Pisces that’s 50% off for coven members if you’re interested in going more in-depth into your own Lilith sign as well as what Lilith in Pisces will mean for you over the next nine months. Lilith was, of course, the demonized, wild feminine who preceded Eve in the garden of Eden. Her archetype is especially relevant now as she has historically been associated with abortion, something that is obviously a center of discussion here in the U.S. right now. 


The Scorpio Moon makes us very aware of our magic, our power, and our passion. The ancient ruler of Scorpio is Mars, an energy not to be f*cked with. There’s a warrior here that operates more like a ninja, moving silently through the night to get the job done. This is how we want to operate at the full moon too, with anything private, since all is visible now. Some things that might appeal now: sex, research, deep conversations, discovery of secrets, communing with ancestor witches. Big reveals, celebrations, or emotional experiences are likely.

MAY 19

Art by Jen Bartel

Neptune influencing the Nodes of Fate is an important background alignment now. This adds a spiritual and artistic quality to how we process the past and vision the future now. It might not all come out in a neat linear form, but perhaps a poem, series of photographs, meditative ocean swim or sound healing session is more clarifying than a thesis anyway? Plus, the moon in Sagittarius the next few days brings a buoyant, optimistic, free-roaming energy. We’re coming off the very high energy of the past (especially) three days and moving into a more lush and enjoyable part of the month. It’s time to process the findings of the past few days, and the changes if there were any big ones, and consider what this means for your growth, expansion, and general freedom. You don’t want to be boxed in today.

MAY 20

Art by Lisa Sterle

Moon conjunct Jupiter today! This is feel good astro, with the usual caveat that Moon-Jupiter can make instincts and emotional responses bigger. Overall this lends a lucky energy. The Moon squares Neptune too - progress on creative or healing endeavors is revealed, or perhaps you receive an important sign or piece of information in a matter that has been feeling fuzzy. Mars sextile Uranus is wild card energy building over the next few days. It can be great for busting through procrastination or getting more physical movement, just also be aware of potential for carelessness, recklessness, potholes, etc. Uranus has an electric energy that can make us prone to accidents or incidents. That said, the aspect formed with Mars is a more gentle one so more likely to express in helpful ways. 


There is also still a strong emphasis on Taurus energy as Venus separates from the Uranus conjunction felt since the 15th and Mercury applying to conjoin the Sun. It could feel slightly discordant, the excited energy combined with the desire to be slow, sensual, and steady. The downside of this can be excessive stubborn, but there’s also potential to get into a space of simply enjoying.  

MAY 21

Art by Lisa Sterle

Stand back! Moon opposite Mars early in the day has an explosive quality to it. Today’s Capricorn Moon helps put feelings in perspective so we can make headway on our goals, however this is that type of alignment that does not favor ignoring our feelings entirely. Things we’ve been repressing might pop up, in us or our partners. Sun conjunct Mercury is the most important change of the day - welcome to Gemini season! It’s as if a breeze returns and we (especially air and fire signs) feel more movement, possibility, spark, and clarity. We’ll want to pace ourselves though when it comes to thinking through challenges or communicating our thoughts since Mercury is quite close to the Sun and therefore overpowered by the solar rays. Enjoy the entry into a new season and get ready for more sparkle, more gossip, and more OPTIONS.

MAY 22

Art by Minji Moon

Today we return to our Big Work as the moon crosses paths with the Capricorn stellium (I’ve talked about it a lot in your horoscopes and in the webinar audio if you’d like to listen to the replay!) which I think of as the major backdrop evolution happening now, building to climax in 2020. We can see forward movement on long-standing issues, so look for signs of progress, and also be open to some signals arising around where your work really is right now. Moon sextile Neptune also brings a dreamy influence that softens some of the heavy Cap energy, sparking imagination, healing inclinations, and visionary concepts. The best thing you can do now is pay attention to your needs, whether they are met are not. Notice what they are. 


Mars sextile Uranus brings the action too! If you’ve wanted some help in getting going, moving, or doing, today is a great day to try something NEW. Break a pattern, habit, or cycle, even better if this involves or is somehow coupled with physical movements. Think a new thought while your body does a new thing. As always with Mars and Uranus, beware anxiety, accidents, or reckless impulsivity.  

MAY 23

Art by Lisa Ostapinski

At 1:50p EST, the moon moves into Aquarius, upping the exciting air energy that much more. The moon communicating so closely with Mercury and the Sun is a beautiful aspect for expressing ourselves, tapping into intuition with ease, and general ease of flow. Mars remains sextile Uranus, upping the intensity of our desires, moods, and impulses. The upside: we can move quicker and/or with less resistance. More momentum with less effort. The downside: easy access to being impulsive, aggressive, or ruthless. The sextile is a nice, flowing aspect so there’s the potential for it to be use really well

MAY 24

Art by Robin Eisenberg

Venus in Taurus is steady now, far from Uranus, and easing into her own comfort, beauty, enjoyment. This is a beautiful time of year to appreciate nature, sensuality, and to work our money magic (as you are doing!) Make time and space for ease, joy, social occasions. The Moon-Mercury trine enhances ideas flow and cleverness. Grab your journal or send some flirty voice notes. This South Node-Saturn-Pluto situation is not changing any time soon, so this is when we learn to fine peace and ease alongside stress, worry, or doubt. We don’t have to banish heavy feelings or karmic sense of duty. We want to heed the call. And we can do that even better with support, handholding, or being there for others who feeling the heaviness more than the lightness right now.  

MAY 25

Art bySiobhan @thehopefulhermit

Moon sextile Jupiter just might start the day with a burst of luck, generosity, and care! This aspect can make our feelings bigger (whatever they are) although mostly this should boost mood and optimism. Moon squares Venus at the same time so we might see relationship developments or feel a desire get more connected to the heart, either our own or someone else’s. Accept your feelings, whatever they are (sometimes Venus square Mars makes our relationship to our own feelings a challenge. In this case, feeling better is an inside job!)  

MAY 26

Art by George @colormelurid

Moon trine Mars and sextile Uranus gives the generally soothing Pisces Moon some extra zing. It could motivating, exciting, like something egging you on, or perhaps a bit anxious/wired. The Moon is also in a nice tight aspect with Black Moon Lilith so if you’ve been wanting to feel into Lilith energy, wildness, or the dark feminine path, you’re on this track right from the beginning of the day. This energy helps you cut to the chase while remaining close to your higher conscious, just remember that Saturn is getting nice and tight with the South Node again too. It’s possible that situations could feel extra activating, some of what’s involved being more of the past than the present. Observe your reactions. 

MAY 27

Art by Lisa Sterle

The coming week has an important feature: Mercury square Neptune. As with all transits, as you probably noticed in the way I write about them by now, this has both low and high vibrational potential. This is especially so when Neptune is involved! 


High potential: Creative, Visionary, Inspired words and thoughts. You can next-level your ideas or see sudden creative in-roads into what had been unclear territory. Your communication and awareness can also take on a highly magical and healing quality. Delusion-busting is also possible and while this may sting, it’s a good thing. Be willing to see the truth about schemes or scams. 


Low potential: Lying or stretching the truth, spread gossip or false information, being unrealistic in ideas or expectations. Fuzzy thinking, lack of clarity. Temptation to backslide into addictions or codependency.


How to work with this? CHOOSE YOUR PATH, CLEARLY. Dabbling in the dangerous does not work with Neptune. Too slippery. Take whatever is the high road, for you.

MAY 28

Meme by The Voluptuous Witch

Another significant aspect that’s returning to grace us due to Jupiter’s retrograde is the JUPITER-NEPTUNE SQUARE. This one has a tendency to expose fraud or deception, or to bring spiritual and healing breakthroughs. It’s potent, but much like the Mercury-Neptune square, it has slippery potential. Areas to be careful: overspending and overpromising (to other or yourself). There’s a leaning toward grandiosity now. Be sure the things you’re saying are true or at least wait to assess them in a less wishful light. That said, your dreams and visions can soar now, and there’s much magic on your side to add to your workings. Be cautious and conservative about intoxicating substance use or texting that ex (meaning don’t do it, LOL)

VENUS TRINE SATURN is strong now and for the next few days. This is about investing in worthwhile, high-quality endeavors and connections. Use your x-ray glasses for b*llsh*t and ground down into what you want to grow. The moon is waning, yes, yet at the same time there’s a very sturdy energy to this transit that allows us to make a firmer foundation or more solid “go of it” at something we’ve been cooking up or cultivating. Use the energy to deepen connections that matter, and to also assess if some affiliations have outlived their day. There’s assistance here for your Deep Work that we keep talking about in the audio horoscopes and such. Venus brings harmony, assistance, sweetness, more abundance. Let your load lighten.

MAY 30

Artist Unknown

Mercury opposite Jupiter and square Neptune brings a pop of action or awareness to recent murky Neptune-related matters. This could come in the form of a realization or important conversation. Just remember that all is not as it appears. The talk may be bigger than the action! Know that we and other people are prone to exaggeration and grand ideas now. This can be inspiring and thrilling (great time for brainstorming, or fun, buoyant conversation) just know there’s potential to take it too far. There’s no magic clean-up solution for Jupiter errors! Keep it optimistic and generous and you should be good.

MAY 31

Art by Jenny À La Mode

Moon conjunct Uranus to start the day! It’s electric, inspired, perhaps anxiety-inducing. No speeding on the way to work (or similar). The Moon-Uranus conjunctions each month are fun because they remind us of our (relatively) brand-new Uranus in Taurus mission. An opportunity to allow change and excitement in. These have been mentioned (and will be again of course) in your personal horoscopes! They were a big focus in them this month because these areas were highlighted so it’s also a good time to re-listen to those. I really recommend relistening and refreshing! (This is part of why I make audios - you will catch something new each time.) The also gives Mars a low-key boost today. From the lunar perspective we are winding down and slowing down, but subtle progress is still progress. Now you can move something forward or bust a rut.

WELCOME BOSS WITCHES!

I suggest listening to your audio horoscope first. Listen for your Rising Sign (Ascendent) primarily and your Sun Sign as well. (If you have another sign that figures prominently in your chart or would like to listen for your Moon Sign, you can try that as well!)

How’s that Saturn-South Node conjunction feeling? This is past life, childhood habits, family secrets, hidden part of ourselves being brought into the LIGHT, sometimes with gnarly outcomes. It can also bring that same light to things you just know deep in your being, awareness that has been lodged and is now ready for release, processing, utilization. Remember that being clear and not-in-avoidance of these things is what builds future alignment. It will be worth it. 


 Tomorrow Lilith moves into Pisces for nine months bringing a slinky, sexy, courtesan-like energy to the atmosphere. It’s time to access the feminine in both the wildest and softest ways, to use our intuition and healing capacities for subversive ends. She is the dangerous wild feminine and the shift in her placement will be felt. She’s much more at home in the deep waters of Pisces than in Aquarius where she has been. Make an offering to the water or a water goddess. Appreciate your depths.

Today we have a Gemini Moon! The Moon in Gemini is an especially abundant time now while we have Jupiter in Sagittarius, as the Moon pings off the part of our chart that is most expanded under this transit. Remember that Jupiter is currently retrograde so it’s time to tend and assess your personal expansion since November. Which dreams have soared? Which have flopped? What needs a rework? These next few days of the Gemini Moon give us some juice in looking at that. They also make us want to be grand, grandiose, and perhaps over-express, over-promise, or just be indulgent in our feelings. Mars opposing Jupiter says go big or go home… and going home is exactly what you should do if going big won’t be worth it in the end! Impulsivity is a theme of the day, so be aware.

Venus squaring Saturn and the South Node over the next few days brings developments in stuck money and love scenarios. That said, it’s not the fuzziest feeling astro. If you need to win someone’s favor or rely on another’s good mood to get what you want, wait a few more days. Squares catalyze and get us to face a rut and take action. So, if you’re seeing limits in finances or feeling more disconnected from affection or care than you would like, do a bit of journaling on what is “in the way” of the flow you’re seeking.

The Venus-Saturn square is exact today. The astro wants us to put in the work and not take shortcuts that cost us more time in the end. Same advisory from yesterday on the possible lack of general goodwill in effect. It’s one of the harsher days this month. Tonight the Moon meets up with Mars so no texting while driving or anything reckless. Be as gentle with yourself and others as you can under the circumstances. 


That said, we’ve already made it through most of the tricky entry into May. Lusher days lie ahead later in the month. The next few days highlight the Sun-South Node trine which is excellent! This is the opportunity to really build solutions and find more self-actualized peace around our personal Saturn-South Node themes (a huge focus of the month, as mentioned in your audio horoscopes). Starting now there is a helpful energy in progress on issues that feel as if they’ve been stuck for centuries or longer. You can take a new step forward at any time. You can drop a heavy piece of baggage just the same, no matter how long you’ve been carrying it.

Venus square Pluto the next few days brings up compulsions and power struggles. Beware surges of jealousy or possessiveness. That said, there’s also a formidable power that can be harnessed here, one that engages desire for wealth, pleasure, and mogul-status. This astro can be worked well internally but can be a bit prickly in relationship. Working shit out honestly is great. It has to happen sometime right? Surrendering to lower compulsions, also possible, would be less ideal. 


A trine between Venus and Jupiter is also building so this will bring in some optimism, buoyancy, and brightness. Mercury conjunct Uranus brings new perspectives, freudian slips, and surprise messages. You’re ready to strategize the ascent that will happen between now and 2026. There’s electricity in the air! Sometimes this turns to anxiety, so if you’re feeling that makes sure to ground yourself.

The Sun is illuminating the South Node today and tomorrow! Let the light in. Take inventory of what what has felt shadowy, shameful, or hard to navigate so far this month. Is there help and support you need? More resources? The Sun arriving here says WE CAN. The essence of who we are wants to be expressed and it can build on/with our past rather than work against or try to bury it. Have you ever had tea and cake with demons? Befriending a demon and hearing it out is one path to liberation. Feeding Your Demons by Tsultrim Allione is a good book on this.


The moon is in Cancer, so you’ll also want to take a bath, cook a delicious meal, spend time with someone to whom you’re heart-connected. Nurture. There’s electricity in the air! Sometimes this turns to anxiety, so if you’re feeling that makes sure to ground yourself. 


Venus trine Jupiter today and exact tomorrow lifts our spirits. Make the grand gesture. Believe in love again. Laugh from your heart.

Yesterday’s themes continue so check back with yesterday’s post! The past few months have been showing us something very important: the cracks in the foundation of what we want to create between now and January 2020. This can be like a preview of a rock bottom we would hit were we not aware of what needs to change. This could be something quite subtle or it could be absolutely central to your life. Wherever you’re at now, keep taking the necessary steps. Today’s astrology shines a spotlight on what could be supportive or what is absolutely necessary to getting where you want to go.

Mercury meets with asteroid Hygeia, goddess of health and hygiene, as the Sun trines Saturn. Today is absolutely about health, nourishment, and alignment. Saturn rules the teeth and bones and is very much about STRUCTURE. Are you ready to start a new health or healing practice in your life, return to one, or pay attention to lingering wellness issue? How can caring for the health of your body and your space be a power source? Moon trine Jupiter late tonight is juicy and optimistic.

Sun trine Pluto builds over the next few days. This is about POWER. Personal power and collective power. Venus sextile Mars is sexy and brings a really creative energy. Go after what you want now. Some of the tricky stuff has cleared and we’re not yet at the mid-month wild ride of the Full Moon. The Leo Moon asks for glamour, boldness, and adoration. And the moon is still waxing. What are you bringing to life now? How can you choose aliveness today?  

MAY 13

Yes, we are still with Sun trine Pluto vibe which is about harnessing personal and collective power, AND keep in mind there is a very strong Saturn energy happening. We might be working incredibly hard, or be feeling like we should be working more but there are obstacles. Saturn says “no”. So it might be that you are needing to tell people no or perhaps even yourself. Boundary setting with our own self is one of the most powerful things we can do. A loving boundary around our schedule or behavior makes a perfect magical container. Notice where you are pushing yourself too hard and could use a boundary to bring in some ease, or where you're caving to impulse rather than building the strong muscles of choosing new behaviors.

There’s a juicy energy in the air today! The Venus-Mars sextile is exact today and that amps up flirtations, dates, attractions, and creative impulse. It’s a good day for creating, wooing, or going after something close to your heart. Sending yourself some love, taking yourself on a date, or some solo sensual practice is lovely too. Venus is nearing the end of her time in Aries and will soon be in Taurus, a much more comfortable placement for her. What you’re feeling now might be the prelude to what develops then. That said, Mars overpowers Venus in this little dance they are doing and Saturn still dominates the overall vibe, so there’s definitely an Emperor type feeling of wanting to take charge, be in charge, be powerful, be right. This can be energizing or a bit dangerous - obviously how it’s applied makes all the difference! It’s a bit more prickly when it comes to re-gaining someone’s good graces or accessing a difficult person’s sentimentality, but moving toward a solid goal is supported.

We are about to enter a few days of a major shift in energy plus the frenetic vibe of the full moon. There’s definitely a potent magical quality available and a high potential for emotionality or larger than life reactions. If it energizes you, great! Or, if you’re sensitive and feeling drained, make some plans to lay low with your own magic as this all unfolds. 


At 6:01a EST, Venus enters Taurus! She loves to be in this sign and this casts a sensual, lush, and fertile spell over the coming weeks. You can honor her entry into her sign by lighting a green or pink candle or having a delicious meal. She can attract wealth, love, and stability, so we will definitely be working with her in our magic soon too.

We have another sign change today: Mars into Cancer. It was actually at 11:09p EDT last night, so this is the first full day. This is quite different from Venus moving into Taurus because Mars struggles a bit in the sign of Cancer. This means in the coming weeks, Mars energy is a little less predictable. We’ll want to be mindful of our aggression and how we use it and to be aware of the potential for moodiness. Like all challenged placements, Mars in Cancer has a lesson to teach. In this case, it’s often about honoring the cycles of our emotions and needs, and growing beyond the desire to do things like silent treatment or have big blow-ups when upset. Having a rich emotional life is a very beneficial thing so long as we honor it! 


The Libra Moon squares the South Node-Saturn-Pluto configuration we keep talking about (it’s important!) so we might feel an urge to reach out and connection with someone from the past, or to talk to someone about the life experiences we’ve been reviewing. It may feel like a non-stop montage of the past that’s been coming up lately but trust you’ll come out clearer and stronger for all the review. 


Venus applies to conjoin Uranus (exact tomorrow) so we are feeling the wild, electric energy of this new Uranus in Taurus era. This time is opening a window into what we have in store between now and 2026, especially our heart’s longing. Things up for reinvention: relationships, our personal values, our money. Put your proverbial life where your mouth is!

Venus conjunct Uranus today and a building Full Moon. Something very important is happening for each of us on our personal Taurus-Scorpio axis at this time; that is where the pot is being stirred. (see your full moon horoscopes for more on this!) This is also very much a WITCH moon. With Lilith newly in Pisces, Mars in Cancer, and the Moon in Scorpio the magical energy is WATER blending with the potent EARTH of Taurus. Fertile for planting, excellent for investing in what you truly care about. It’s not good astrology for needing to “fake it” in any way though. Small talk, anything that strikes you as inane, or what simply feels like a bad investment will be much less tolerable. If you’re needing any kind of personal revolution in your own values and how they’re expressed, your relationship structures and priorities, or how you handle money - it’s your time! 


That said, be aware today is potentially emotional and there could be temptation to go big in what we do or how we express. What happens in relationships, for example, could be sudden and jarring but have lasting effects. Or let’s say you’re getting a totally new hair color or style, it’s not the best day for something pleasing and demure. Use this energy for the quakes you want, but avoid the ones that could have unnecessarily unpleasant aftershocks.

Full Moon exact at 5:10p EDT this evening so we are under the full moon energy all day! Refer to you Full Moon guide and horoscopes as well please. The Scorpio Full Moon also carries a very Lilith-reminiscent energy and Lilith newly in Pisces is bringing a compatible and very strong energy now. I wrote a guide on Lilith in Pisces that’s 50% off for coven members if you’re interested in going more in-depth into your own Lilith sign as well as what Lilith in Pisces will mean for you over the next nine months. Lilith was, of course, the demonized, wild feminine who preceded Eve in the garden of Eden. Her archetype is especially relevant now as she has historically been associated with abortion, something that is obviously a center of discussion here in the U.S. right now. 


The Scorpio Moon makes us very aware of our magic, our power, and our passion. The ancient ruler of Scorpio is Mars, an energy not to be f*cked with. There’s a warrior here that operates more like a ninja, moving silently through the night to get the job done. This is how we want to operate at the full moon too, with anything private, since all is visible now. Some things that might appeal now: sex, research, deep conversations, discovery of secrets, communing with ancestor witches. Big reveals, celebrations, or emotional experiences are likely.

Neptune influencing the Nodes of Fate is an important background alignment now. This adds a spiritual and artistic quality to how we process the past and vision the future now. It might not all come out in a neat linear form, but perhaps a poem, series of photographs, meditative ocean swim or sound healing session is more clarifying than a thesis anyway? Plus, the moon in Sagittarius the next few days brings a buoyant, optimistic, free-roaming energy. We’re coming off the very high energy of the past (especially) three days and moving into a more lush and enjoyable part of the month. It’s time to process the findings of the past few days, and the changes if there were any big ones, and consider what this means for your growth, expansion, and general freedom. You don’t want to be boxed in today.

Moon conjunct Jupiter today! This is feel good astro, with the usual caveat that Moon-Jupiter can make instincts and emotional responses bigger. Overall this lends a lucky energy. The Moon squares Neptune too - progress on creative or healing endeavors is revealed, or perhaps you receive an important sign or piece of information in a matter that has been feeling fuzzy. Mars sextile Uranus is wild card energy building over the next few days. It can be great for busting through procrastination or getting more physical movement, just also be aware of potential for carelessness, recklessness, potholes, etc. Uranus has an electric energy that can make us prone to accidents or incidents. That said, the aspect formed with Mars is a more gentle one so more likely to express in helpful ways. 


There is also still a strong emphasis on Taurus energy as Venus separates from the Uranus conjunction felt since the 15th and Mercury applying to conjoin the Sun. It could feel slightly discordant, the excited energy combined with the desire to be slow, sensual, and steady. The downside of this can be excessive stubborn, but there’s also potential to get into a space of simply enjoying.

Stand back! Moon opposite Mars early in the day has an explosive quality to it. Today’s Capricorn Moon helps put feelings in perspective so we can make headway on our goals, however this is that type of alignment that does not favor ignoring our feelings entirely. Things we’ve been repressing might pop up, in us or our partners. Sun conjunct Mercury is the most important change of the day - welcome to Gemini season! It’s as if a breeze returns and we (especially air and fire signs) feel more movement, possibility, spark, and clarity. We’ll want to pace ourselves though when it comes to thinking through challenges or communicating our thoughts since Mercury is quite close to the Sun and therefore overpowered by the solar rays. Enjoy the entry into a new season and get ready for more sparkle, more gossip, and more OPTIONS.

Today we return to our Big Work as the moon crosses paths with the Capricorn stellium (I’ve talked about it a lot in your horoscopes and in the webinar audio if you’d like to listen to the replay!) which I think of as the major backdrop evolution happening now, building to climax in 2020. We can see forward movement on long-standing issues, so look for signs of progress, and also be open to some signals arising around where your work really is right now. Moon sextile Neptune also brings a dreamy influence that softens some of the heavy Cap energy, sparking imagination, healing inclinations, and visionary concepts. The best thing you can do now is pay attention to your needs, whether they are met are not. Notice what they are. 


Mars sextile Uranus brings the action too! If you’ve wanted some help in getting going, moving, or doing, today is a great day to try something NEW. Break a pattern, habit, or cycle, even better if this involves or is somehow coupled with physical movements. Think a new thought while your body does a new thing. As always with Mars and Uranus, beware anxiety, accidents, or reckless impulsivity.

At 1:50p EST, the moon moves into Aquarius, upping the exciting air energy that much more. The moon communicating so closely with Mercury and the Sun is a beautiful aspect for expressing ourselves, tapping into intuition with ease, and general ease of flow. Mars remains sextile Uranus, upping the intensity of our desires, moods, and impulses. The upside: we can move quicker and/or with less resistance. More momentum with less effort. The downside: easy access to being impulsive, aggressive, or ruthless. The sextile is a nice, flowing aspect so there’s the potential for it to be use really well 

MAY 24

Venus in Taurus is steady now, far from Uranus, and easing into her own comfort, beauty, enjoyment. This is a beautiful time of year to appreciate nature, sensuality, and to work our money magic (as you are doing!) Make time and space for ease, joy, social occasions. The Moon-Mercury trine enhances ideas flow and cleverness. Grab your journal or send some flirty voice notes. This South Node-Saturn-Pluto situation is not changing any time soon, so this is when we learn to fine peace and ease alongside stress, worry, or doubt. We don’t have to banish heavy feelings or karmic sense of duty. We want to heed the call. And we can do that even better with support, handholding, or being there for others who feeling the heaviness more than the lightness right now. 

MAY 25

Moon sextile Jupiter just might start the day with a burst of luck, generosity, and care! This aspect can make our feelings bigger (whatever they are) although mostly this should boost mood and optimism. Moon squares Venus at the same time so we might see relationship developments or feel a desire get more connected to the heart, either our own or someone else’s. Accept your feelings, whatever they are (sometimes Venus square Mars makes our relationship to our own feelings a challenge. In this case, feeling better is an inside job!)  

MAY 26

Moon trine Mars and sextile Uranus gives the generally soothing Pisces Moon some extra zing. It could motivating, exciting, like something egging you on, or perhaps a bit anxious/wired. The Moon is also in a nice tight aspect with Black Moon Lilith so if you’ve been wanting to feel into Lilith energy, wildness, or the dark feminine path, you’re on this track right from the beginning of the day. This energy helps you cut to the chase while remaining close to your higher conscious, just remember that Saturn is getting nice and tight with the South Node again too. It’s possible that situations could feel extra activating, some of what’s involved being more of the past than the present. Observe your reactions. 

MAY 27

The coming week has an important feature: Mercury square Neptune. As with all transits, as you probably noticed in the way I write about them by now, this has both low and high vibrational potential. This is especially so when Neptune is involved! 


High potential: Creative, Visionary, Inspired words and thoughts. You can next-level your ideas or see sudden creative in-roads into what had been unclear territory. Your communication and awareness can also take on a highly magical and healing quality. Delusion-busting is also possible and while this may sting, it’s a good thing. Be willing to see the truth about schemes or scams. 


Low potential: Lying or stretching the truth, spread gossip or false information, being unrealistic in ideas or expectations. Fuzzy thinking, lack of clarity. Temptation to backslide into addictions or codependency. 


How to work with this? CHOOSE YOUR PATH, CLEARLY. Dabbling in the dangerous does not work with Neptune. Too slippery. Take whatever is the high road, for you.

MAY 28


Another significant aspect that’s returning to grace us due to Jupiter’s retrograde is the JUPITER-NEPTUNE SQUARE. This one has a tendency to expose fraud or deception, or to bring spiritual and healing breakthroughs. It’s potent, but much like the Mercury-Neptune square, it has slippery potential. Areas to be careful: overspending and overpromising (to other or yourself). There’s a leaning toward grandiosity now. Be sure the things you’re saying are true or at least wait to assess them in a less wishful light. That said, your dreams and visions can soar now, and there’s much magic on your side to add to your workings. Be cautious and conservative about intoxicating substance use or texting that ex (meaning don’t do it, LOL)  

MAY 29

  

VENUS TRINE SATURN is strong now and for the next few days. This is about investing in worthwhile, high-quality endeavors and connections. Use your x-ray glasses for b*llsh*t and ground down into what you want to grow. The moon is waning, yes, yet at the same time there’s a very sturdy energy to this transit that allows us to make a firmer foundation or more solid “go of it” at something we’ve been cooking up or cultivating. Use the energy to deepen connections that matter, and to also assess if some affiliations have outlived their day. There’s assistance here for your Deep Work that we keep talking about in the audio horoscopes and such. Venus brings harmony, assistance, sweetness, more abundance. Let your load lighten.

MAY 30

 

Mercury opposite Jupiter and square Neptune brings a pop of action or awareness to recent murky Neptune-related matters. This could come in the form of a realization or important conversation. Just remember that all is not as it appears. The talk may be bigger than the action! Know that we and other people are prone to exaggeration and grand ideas now. This can be inspiring and thrilling (great time for brainstorming, or fun, buoyant conversation) just know there’s potential to take it too far. There’s no magic clean-up solution for Jupiter errors! Keep it optimistic and generous and you should be good. 

MAY 31


Moon conjunct Uranus to start the day! It’s electric, inspired, perhaps anxiety-inducing. No speeding on the way to work (or similar). The Moon-Uranus conjunctions each month are fun because they remind us of our (relatively) brand-new Uranus in Taurus mission. An opportunity to allow change and excitement in. These have been mentioned (and will be again of course) in your personal horoscopes! They were a big focus in them this month because these areas were highlighted so it’s also a good time to re-listen to those. I really recommend relistening and refreshing! (This is part of why I make audios - you will catch something new each time.) The also gives Mars a low-key boost today. From the lunar perspective we are winding down and slowing down, but subtle progress is still progress. Now you can move something forward or bust a rut.

We are nearly into June! This will be a BIG month in the astrology, followed by July’s major Mercury Retrograde. We are getting into the flow of Cosmic Coven at just the right time. Staying up to date with the upcoming astro will be so, so useful. This week’s daily posts, too, are pretty essential so make sure to check in! 


I'd love to get your feedback on how Boss Witch is going for you and how I can improve your experience. If you can please take a moment to take this quick survey:


Thanks so much for being here in the early days of the membership! Your presence here is appreciated.


Some important membership updates: 


Guide #4 is up! This week’s assignment runs from now until the Gemini New Moon (June 3rd). From this point on, the weeks will run this way (aligned with the lunar calendar) This works better for what we are doing! 

  • I will be adding more calls to the membership! Rather than one long webinar, I’d like to have 3-4 calls per month that are 30 min long, with about 10 min of additional astro info from me followed by 20 min of Q+A. The questions can be about the current astro or the Boss Witch assignments. This will provide more support for completing the offerings and more community all around! The dates and times will be announced at the beginning of each month

  • Weekly assignments (in the Boss Witch guides) will be streamlined and simplified a bit, so as to be more manageable to complete

  • The format of the written horoscopes has been revised to be more planning-oriented breaking things out week by week and highlighting specific dates to make them of maximum practical use (do let me know what you think when you see them!)
