Sandra’s Celestial Compass for the Week of May 20, 2013
The Sun this week enters Gemini for a month long transit opposing the Full Moon Eclipse in Sagittarius and a major alignment between Uranus and Pluto puts pressure on the status quo. Change has already been unfolding though now the probability has escalated and is more immediate. This week’s eclipse is the third in a row that changed signs from the Taurus-Scorpio axis as it opens Sagittarius energy that is somewhat of a doorway out of dilemmas. Having been an instigating factor for months now the ninety degree angle between Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn once again exactly occurs. It is an ongoing energy creating unrest and a sense that something could easily go awry which in some instances has. A simple way to define it is that it is a pressure causing anything and everything that is already weak and unstable to fragment or topple. Everything one way or another is manageable though for some there are issues that cannot be avoided. What has been bubbling now boils over and anything you have neglected will grab your attention. The Uranus-Pluto angle has been rumbling in the background that is seen through manifesting civil unrest, government upheavals during this and last year. It brings pressure to a head to the point of threats of war and causes something to give one way or another. The world is seeking revolution and change that will continue into 2015. Personally the key is to find a way to work through it and seek your own way to manage and manifest within the changes unfolding.
Within all the cosmic shifts and turns the current lunar eclipse in Sagittarius is all about garnering knowledge and wisdom that can be the greatest strength of all because it affords more solutions and avenues for peace of mind. It is easier to accept change when there is understanding and ways to walk through it into something ultimately greater and in a peaceful way. Realization that there is something bigger at stake and that there is also something greater to help is the comfort of this Sagittarius eclipse.

The Sun is in Gemini at 5:10 PM until June 21 that for everyone is stirring and uprooting what has been in a lull or coasting along. New experiences offer more opportunity and interesting adding more variety to your life. The intellect is increased and also mental stirring that is best worked with by having a direction or it could turn into restlessness due to indecision. This cycle is colored by the lunar eclipse in Sagittarius, the opposite sign of Gemini, on Saturday making what you do and where you go more significant. Be ready to respond to others who are reaching out and seeking more communication.
Uranus square Pluto at 6:20 PM is a repeating aspect that has been affecting everything since 2012 and this week along with other powerful rays as the eclipses reminds you of where you need to pull your life together and reinforce it. Shed negative circumstances and distance yourself from negative people that probably already have shown their intentions. It is about restructuring though much is already in place that makes it necessary to take care of what is in need. Address what you realize should be taken care of.
Mercury sextile Uranus at 11:47 PM inspires and opens you to great ideas and innovative ways to manage and create. This is a strong flowing vibration of inspiration and originality available to you if you take time to tap into anything you think is out of the ordinary. Listen to your hunches and thoughts that just flash. Something unique and beneficial could come your way if you are flexible and willing to think outside the box.
Tuesday – May 21, 2013
Moon in Libra
Serious attitudes and intentions result from the 8:56 AM lunar square to Pluto that does not provide the best energy but instead is about overthrowing and going too far. Avoid compelling urges to angrily react or become involved in antagonistic situations. Step back and think carefully about what you or another is doing where coercion or control is the major factor.
While the 9:00 AM Moon opposite Uranus angle is in effect realize that little is reliable or predictable in the moment. There is too much chaos and disruptive energy for any beginnings or attempts to negotiate or to do much of anything. This passes quickly if you wait to engage and avoid acting or reacting.
At 10:34 AM while the Moon trines Mercury it is easier to express yourself and make headway in communication. There is greater understanding with information accurate and to the point. Be ready to use this time to make a point and get your message across.
A nice sensing of what you desire and would like to draw to you come into play at 3:24 PM through the Moon trine Venus that also gives an ease of connecting with others of like mind and who wants what you do. This is a nice time to share and see in what ways you may work with groups and pull together numbers of people for a common cause or goal.
Wednesday – May 22, 2013
Moon in Libra/Scorpio
While the Moon is trine Jupiter at 3:36 AM you are more optimistic and sense there are reasons and solutions for what happens. This is a supportive energy providing hope and encouragement to take a good path and be at your best.
The Moon in Scorpio beginning at 4:56 PM will be influential until next Friday that either enriches deep thinking or causes you to harbor worry and anxiety. Remember your original reason for what you dwell on and keep a good perspective. You have the ability to think thoroughly and have research payoff. Delving deep into the mind brings up much.
Thursday – May 23, 2013
Moon in Scorpio
Be ready to experience greater intuition and therefore more information from within due to the Moon trine Neptune at 1:46 AM. Much out of the ordinary information can be available to you with time taken to meditate and focus on what you need to know. Everyone is more tuned into the atmosphere. Thoughts are more idealistic.
The Moon conjunct Saturn at 3:35 AM puts a damper on events and even how you think making you and most more serious minded or morose. Someone could become fretful and despondent. This is not a good time to try to push or get too much done where others are involved. Keep things simple.
Extra energy and even gusto comes into play at 11:26 AM through the sextile of the Moon and Pluto that benefits anywhere you need strength and perseverance. It is the right time to get going and take a stance for what you want to be strong and thorough.
Friday – May 24, 2013
Moon in Scorpio/Sagittarius
Be a bit cautious and take your time while the Moon opposite Mars angle is active at 9:56 AM as it creates cross-currents and mistakes to occur before you realize it. It is a bit of an impulsive energy making you feel urged to do something even when you really may not need to. Use forethought where you can.
While the Moon transits through Sagittarius beginning at 5:50 PM everyone feels more optimistic and hopeful though the eclipse in Sagittarius adds strong energy. You may feel like you can do anything though with all the other planetary angles this week it is wise to think before you leap with abandon.
Mercury conjunct Venus at 7:54 PM provides very interesting information that can gratify and be just what you have wanted to know. Communication is friendly and pleasant with charm as an aspect. You see more clearly the value of things and can read what another conveys. Your senses are in-tune with what works and what is just right for the time, for an event or anything where good perspective is needed. You could write very nice compositions. It is an angle of poetry and singing, the spoken word and artistic presentations.
Saturday – May 25, 2013
Moon in Sagittarius
The Full Moon Eclipse in Sagittarius peak at 12:26 AM is enlightening even with all the other angles that cause you to be on your toes and alert for anything. This is a welcomed and needed vibration as it inspires and uplifts giving hope that all will be well. It sensitizes travel especially to other lands and places far away from where you reside. Being in the mix of the other eclipses in Taurus and Scorpio and the Uranus-Pluto angle makes it more important to be aware of where you are going and to pay attention to your surroundings and how others interact with you. There is a kind of blessing in this for those who have awareness of their spirituality and choose to consciously connect. As this time approaches have complete what you want to be working on rather than after it. A lunar tide brings in energy up until it peaks to full for several days prior. Sagittarius governs higher education and learning institutions, professors and teachers and all types of study though specifically religious and spiritual. It also governs the judicial system and those institutions with some connection to governments as the IRS and enforcement agencies. It rules foreign travel and all those places that are at a distance from you plus it rules in-laws.
The Moon square Neptune at 2:20 AM throws clarity off making it more difficult to see facts and to know what is actually going on. You easily misread or misunderstand something so be ready to take your time to gather facts. All is not as it seems.
Inspiration is easy during the Moon trine Uranus aspect at 12:01 PM. It is a fast energy that causes sparks of intuitiveness and interesting ideas to suddenly pop up. Be aware and ready to grab those pearls of knowledge when they appear as they just as quickly disappear.
Sunday – May 26, 2013
Moon in Sagittarius/Capricorn
Do not expect another to agree with you or be warm to your ideas in relationships at 2:17 AM while the Moon opposite Venus is active. Someone may be reticent to be close or may turn away temporarily. This could cause sadness and a feeling of pulling away. Creativity is less making it more difficult to finish a project or make it right. Flaws are commonplace. It is best not to overload yourself with too much to do.
The Moon opposite Jupiter at 6:23 AM causes excess spending and if inclined, to go too far with anything. Things look as if the door is wide open but actions fall short and could even fail. It is a better time to conserve everything from energy to money.
The Sun square Neptune at 6:26 AM causes peculiar conditions difficult to understand. It is an important angle because the Sun is in Gemini, the sign opposite the eclipse point making involvements sensitized to what is true and ethical. You could easily fall into a situation that is misrepresented and therefore then be caught in it and have to work your way out. There is a lack of solidity upon which to build anything. Step back and wait and take your time.
The week concludes with the Moon in Capricorn cycle beginning at 5:29 PM that is all about taking a pragmatic approach to life. You are placed in a position to toe the line and take care of overt responsibilities. That Pluto is also in Pluto aligning as next week begins and part of the big angle to Uranus there is an ominous sense about this transit. When you know you have a plan in place that works stay focused so that you do not become overwhelmed.

Uranus square Pluto this week has occurred more than once due to retrograde motion so was in effect in 2012 and reminiscent of the last time it was active in the early 1930’s making many worry and be concerned that what happened then will happen again with the economy that then was the Great Depression. It will continue to reform exact ninety degree angles until 2015 keeping everything unsettled and causing a need to be watchful of how major events change and trickle down to each individually. Mercury well angled to Uranus will help you to think with inspiration and ingenuity that in turn will provide solutions if you choose to work in that direction. This is definitely a time where solutions are needed and ways to resolve stress and crisis so a little time pondering and receiving intuitively may be just the right direction to bring ways to carve out your own path and move into better circumstances. Capricorn rules government that is where Pluto is transiting making governments and leaders under great pressure to conform or make changes and work through unrest. This great energy is about a shift as things cannot remain the same. As you see where you are struggling turn to finding innovative ways to work through it and discover solutions. The ultimate of revolution is a solution that works for betterment and fortunately the overall angles are so that answers are there for the asking. Recognition of issues and weaving through the bigger picture is beneficial for understanding that in turn helps to realize other abstract avenues. Individuality, originality and a unique mindset is rewarding regardless of what happens around you and in the world. As you are situated from a strong foundation you may then expand your own balanced and clear energy outward to connect with others and the world at large. Such a major angle along with the eclipses is about humanity moving in unison to evolve, or strive to that sometimes results in complex reactions as was in the 1930’s. This time we may all unify more by choice as people seem to be doing in reaction to events. Many are working to unify and find reason to manifest positively. This is the blessing of media and social networking that allows each to find another to connect with and create a positive bond. Naturally there are all manner of things happening and some huge though each may find how to make good connections and choose a wise path.
