The week starts out with Memorial Day giving us a four day week. The four day weeks are always interesting, because instead of starting on a Monday (the Moon’s day), they start on a Tuesday (the Norse god, Tyr’s day) which is another form of Mars. Weeks beginning on Tuesdays (Mars days) are often very different in that things may happen quite unexpectedly or change rather quickly. This is certainly the theme of this week as we finish the first holiday of the spring and summer season.
On the 28th, we have a New Moon at 7° Gemini 21′ in a wonderful aspect to Venus, so socializing may be the theme of the week. Watch out of doors activities if you haven’t been training all winter because Mars weeks can trigger injuries to the body if you haven’t been training. Even if you have, if your intuition is telling you to not do something, to check that step to fix it, or watch as you use those tools to start summer projects, then you might want to think of listening. Since Venus is in the last two days of Aries, this is probably a wise reminder.
On the 28th, at 6:45 PM, Pacific Time, Venus enters her own sign of Taurus, in which she is quite comfortable. Venus in Taurus is about comfort, beauty, planting, enhancing one’s environment and taking a really good stock of resources to use, to spend, to save and with which to plan for the remainder of the year. Since Venus is opposing Saturn for the next few weeks, your spending may be more cautious than usual, because a plan may be percolating for some change in business ideas or ventures over the course of the next few months.
On May 29 at 2:12 am, transiting Mercury enters the action sign of Cancer, but it is moving slower than usual because Mercury goes retrograde next week on June 7. Plans that were started, contracts attempted, may not be put on hold, but may benefit from a second look. More insight reveal themselves after Sunday June 1, when Jupiter returns to its retrograde (shadow points) at 20° Cancer 30′.
