Micro-Forecast: May 13 to 19, 2024

Hang on for the ride as the week begins with the Sun and Uranus in conjunction. This once-a-year phenomenon sparks a year of sudden insights, decisions to separate or regroup in a new and more efficient way. Sun/Uranus can often present opportunities unexpected, and they come as quickly as they go – these fortunate moments are fleeting. Pay attention. Listen. Don’t close your ears and wait for the rest of the story. You may discover something you didn’t see coming, but which acts as a catalyst for a plan you’d like to put in play. With Venus and Saturn in a positive aspect to each other, this also means that, in fact, a very practical idea supports your creative pursuits, events or upcoming projects.

Whatever great ideas present themselves at the beginning of the week, the end of the week suggests you do a little reconnaissance in finding out information that can help validate or invalidate opportunities that may have presented themselves in the last couple of weeks since the Jupiter/Uranus conjunction of April 20, 2024.

With Sun/Jupiter conjunct on Saturday, again, another once a year phenomenon, get ready to expand your horizons, your ideas, think about furthering your education, or just taking a half day workshop, taking a trip, getting back to drafting that article or script or business plan and while producing this, you remain faithful to your values and what is important, moving forward. This alignment offers protection (Jupiter protects) – which means you receive useful information that helps you move forward with some new projects.

Over the course of the following weeks there are several conjunctions of planets. Conjunctions start cycles, they are like New Moons (which begin the monthly lunation cycle). On the 18th of May, at the same time, the Sun/Jupiter is happening, you also see the Venus/Uranus conjunction. This can be a sudden surprise regarding either a professional or personal relationship. It offers insight, another way of looking at relationships, that, up to this point, weren’t viable. Try changing fixed patterns over the course of the next few weeks. Changing patterns or behaviors provide an environment that invites new information and opportunity. Many new starts begin over the course of the next few weeks. We are getting past the eclipses, the retrograde Mercury, and we move into new directions where new light is shed on old challenges. Following are the upcoming dates in May of the dynamic conjunctions mentioned above.
