Your Weekly Astrology Forecast for May 27–June 3, 2018

The week ahead holds the steamy Full Moon in Sagittarius (Moon is in Sagittarius and Sun is in Gemini) on Tuesday. This a Grand Trine in Fire (Moon, Chiron and North Node) and a Grand trine in water (Jupiter, Neptune and Venus). Water and Fire create steam. The sauna, good for detoxing and health, is an apt expression of this combination of energy. The Sun has just entered Gemini tropically, highlighting communication, community and connection. Gemini is the sign of the zodiac that bridges Spring with Summer. The week is energized by a Sun-Moon trine. The Jupiter-Neptune trine, strong all week, calls us to higher consciousness, and stirs our imagination with creative possibilities.

Positive Energy Starts the Week off Right

Sunday we turn inward in the low light of the Scorpio Moon. Feelings run deep. We want to study, investigate and get to the bottom of problems and concerns. The day also shines with benefic energies. We feel optimistic and buoyant and can imagine a positive future. Use this good energy to make the day count.

The Moon is Void of Course (VoC) for a long period on Monday, Memorial Day (10:25am–3:25pm PDT). The Moon in Scorpio is an excellent planetary configuration for honoring our deceased military and other deceased loves ones. The air clears and lightens when the Moon moves into sunny Sagittarius at 3:25pm PDT. We are ready to come out of the cave and into the light and connect with others.

Get Ready for the Full Moon in Sagittarius on Tuesday

A Full Moon in Sagittarius coupled with the Gemini Sun fires us up for travel and adventure on Tuesday. A Grand Fire Trine between Chiron in Aries, the North Node in Leo, and the Sagittarius Moon can bring healing through truth, vision and stretching beyond the personal. Our imagination is encouraged by a Moon-Neptune square. Mercury ingresses into Gemini, encouraging conversation and communication. The Neptune-Jupiter trine that is in effect this week calls us to higher consciousness and creativity.

Wednesday’s sunny Sagittarius Moon is VoC all day and evening, spilling over to early Thursday morning. When the Moon is in this mutable fire sign, it signals a call to adventure. Get some exercise in the outdoors. Explore the travel section of a bookstore. Make it a casual, easy, social evening. This is not a day for meetings, purchases or decision making.

Hard Work is the Theme Toward the End of the Week

Buckle down on Thursday, the last day of May, and work on all that needs to be accomplished at the month’s end. After an energizing jolt from a Moon-Uranus trine, the Moon conjuncts both Vesta and Saturn. The asteroid Vesta, goddess of the hearth, is a feminine version of Saturn. This is a demanding, industrious day made for hard work and getting things done.

Friday is a day of mixed energies. The Capricorn Moon joins Pluto, making its demands again for work and accomplishment. However, the day is graced with a delightful Venus-Jupiter-Neptune Grand Trine in water signs that makes almost anything seem possible. Other benefic aspects give inspiration and vision. Hope, happiness and hard work are key words for Friday.

The Weekend is Perfect for Spending with Friends

Saturday the Moon is VoC most of the day until 3:06pm PDT. Rather than shopping and running errands, clean house and do some gardening. The VoC Moon is in Capricorn, so a lot can be accomplished. The evening calls for gathering with friends—it’s a great night for a party.

We are energized by an early Sunday morning Moon-Mars conjunction. Get out early and exercise. Try something new. The Sun and Moon are in a benefic trine in friendly air signs. Sunday is a social day for connection and community.

The Week in Short

Sunday: Positive energies abound! Make this day count.
