…For May 24th, 2007
The Moon continues to move through the sign of Virgo today. If you have the opportunity, go out into the garden and connect with nature as the Moon moves through this earth sign. If you don’t have a garden, then spend some time taking care of your indoor plants and sticking your hands in the soil. As the Moon moves through this earth sign, connecting with the earth on a physical level will aid in your manifestation process. An alternate for the anti-gardeners, go to the park, sit under a tree with your back up against it, take off your shoes and socks and dig your feet into the ground. Relax on Earth, Today!!!
The only Lunar aspect happening today in a Eastern Daylight Time Zone (EDT) is the Moon will square Jupiter tonight at 8:52 PM. This may bring on self-indulgent tendencies. Remember chocolate may be your pallets favorite food, but not your body’s. Use self-discipline consciously this evening.
Later this evening at 9:10 PM EDT the planet Neptune goes retrograde (Chart) until October 31 2007 (Chart). As Neptune Retrogrades, prepare for a journey of suspension as you reflect inward to contemplate your evolutionary plan. There is time now to gain much understanding within the confusion of your minds, for this transit is not one of a practical nature, however it is one of everything other then practicality. If you are open to new possibilities then much warmth and understanding will be gained from such a transit. Self-discipline will be ‘tested’ during this time, and if you adhere to it then your will continue to develop your individual intelligence. For now we journey back, reflecting upon emotional experiences, so that we may find the answers to our spiritual questions, while gaining understanding of our Karmic lessons. For this journey we travel will be understood by those who have the ability to be the observer.

…For May 23rd, 2007
Today the Moon is taking it’s time as it moves through the sign of Virgo. The First Quarter Moon takes place at 5:02 PM EDT allowing for us to sit half in the dark and half in the light, taping into the kinesthetic motion and movement of the universe. As the light of the Moon increases over the next few days we can continue to gather information for any decisions we will need to act upon, and for the Moon to be in the sign of Virgo during this phase, we have the ability to analyze all the data that is coming our way.
In Ontario, as we slept Mercury Trine Neptune at 3:49 AM EDT, allowing for our thoughts to come through as dream time awareness. Did you remember your dream at that time? If so write it down and dissect it as the Moon is in the First Quarter phase.
The Moon aspects two planets today, and they are…
Enjoy your day!!!
…For May 22nd, 2007
Yesterday (May 21st, 2007) the Sun moved into the socially chatty sign of Gemini. For the next astro-month, expect your social life to increase drastically. (More information about the Sun in Gemini to be release soon via the Universal Sky newsletter).
So now on to today!!! Today the Moon is blazing through the sky in the sign of Leo. Pretty girls come out of the woodwork today, making your physical appearance most important. And if you are not consciously trying to make yourself look pretty, then you may just get a lot of compliments… learn to say ‘Thank You’ when someone complements you today. Even if no one complements you, know that your self-esteem will sparkle like the stars seen in the night sky. For your intentions and desires found within your heart will shine through you today.
The Moon will trine Jupiter this morning at 10:52 AM EDT bringing growth of a new nature, so keep your eyes open and see how far you have come.
At 3:26 PM EDT the Moon will conjunct/eclipse the planet Saturn again (this also happened on March 29th, click on link to bring you to the March 29th Tidbit, then scroll down the page). However during this particular time Saturn is in a direct motion and NOT retrograde, so the energy may be somewhat more progressive today, not so much like the March 29th vibration which was more repressive.
New Ideas will come to the forefront at 8:05 PM EDT when the Moon will sextile Mercury. Then at 9:03 PM EDT the Moon will oppose Neptune, there will be a desire to be one with the universe at this time, however clarity will be required to achieve this. If you are thinking of meditation in order to receive the clarity, any messages you receive may be somewhat off timing. Learn patience!
Enjoy your day!!!
…For May 19th, 2007
The Moon is swimming in the sign of Cancer this morning, allowing everyone the ability to tap into their emotional natures this weekend. Swimming is a great sport if you could fit it in this weekend, as it will aid in the process of diluting any emotions you may be feeling now.
Today there are only 2 major aspects taking place with the Moon in the sky, they are…
Enjoy your day!!!
…For May 18th, 2007
Today the Moon continues to travel through the sign of Gemini. Sitting in the car is projected today if you are going north for the long weekend here in Ontario. This is a Gemini vibration. However there are many aspects happening with the Moon today, so keep your eyes open on the road.
The Lunar aspects taking place today are…
So if you are on the open road from 8:57 PM to 11:38 PM EDT…keep your eyes and ears open for the dreamy drivers.
Enjoy your day!!!
…For May 17th, 2007
The Moon is traveling through the sign of Gemini today, visiting everyone along the way. Gemini being a very social sign, many people have started their long weekend early here in Ontario, and have hit the open roads on their attempt to realign with nature up north this weekend. Gemini is a short distance traveler, so you may find that your thoughts and emotions are also on the highway of life, stopping along the way, for gentle conversations with people that like to chat to strangers.
The Moon is aspecting both Mars and Mercury harmoniously today. Enjoy your active and chatty day!
…For May 16th, 2007
As I look upon the energies of the day, I noticed that today is the day we are graced by the New Moon in Taurus (chart). The darkness that has filled the sky shall depart as the new light of manifestation approaches. The New Moon takes place at 3:27 PM EDT at 25 Degrees of Taurus 33 minutes. The Sabian Symbol* of 26 degrees of Taurus is “ A SPANISH GALLANT SERENADES HIS BELOVED”**. It refers to the ritualization of individual desires. Society has made the collective believe that rituals are necessary for the attainment of our desires, but in truth they are not. For a ritual is just a repeated process that can assist one in the actualization of attainment. We are asked to tap into what we ‘Love’ during this time and discover how each individual person can conform to their individual desires and when doing so manifest them. That ‘Love’ that you tap into can be of being in relationship or it can be of ownership. Taurus is a practical sign and most people live within a boundary of practical means, do you need to stretch the boundaries? Perhaps step outside of the box all together? Use the sensual sounds of music to understanding what you desire, then when your consciousness has attained a thought form of a specific desire, manifest it by believing in it… believe with your heart and manifestation takes part.
There are other Lunar aspects taking place today prior to the New Moon, these are…
After the New Moon at 3:27 PM it goes Void of Course, supporting our ability to go inwards and collect our consciousness’ and thoughts. It stays void of course until the Moon moves into the sign of Gemini at 10:34 PM EDT.
Enjoy your day! Enjoy the manifestation process!!!

….For May 15th, 2007
The Moon continues to travel through the grounded and practical sign of Taurus. It is easy to anchor your artistic abilities today, so create something that you enjoy creating while the Moon travels through this sign.
Then hold on to your seat belts at 10:06 AM EDT as the planet Mars moves into the sign of Aries. Mars like to soar through this sign, so most people’s energy levels should increase. Feel the vigor of action running through your veins for the next six weeks until June 24th, 2007, as Mars runs through its ruling sign.
Today at 11:38 AM EDT feel the flow of your values as the Moon will sextile Venus.
Enjoy your day!!!
…For May 14th, 2007
The Moon continues to travel through the spirited sign of Aries. Continue contemplating what you desire to activate within your life until it moves into the sign of Taurus later this evening at 10:48 PM EDT. It is then that what you have processed has the ability to become actualized and materialized (especially when the NEW MOON in TAURUS hits on May 16th).
Today there is fire in the air, so make positive use of it. The lunar aspects taking place today all happen while the Moon is in Aries, they are…
After the last aspect today the Moon will be Void of Course until it moves into the sign of Taurus. Great time for meditation and inner contemplation – use it wisely!
Enjoy your Day!!!
… For May 12th & 13th, 2007
On May 12th the Moon continues to travel into the sign of Pisces allowing for the ability to tap into your inner self. It travels a void of course action from 7:53 PM EDT to 10:18 PM EDT. This void of course aids one in the pursuit of meditation and inner contemplation. Find time during those hours to feel what is real to you. Then at 10:19 PM EDT the Moon moves into the fire sign of Aries. Where it is now time to focus on who you are…and who you desire to be. Tap into the spirit of Aries this evening and have some fun.
During the day (May 12th) while the Moon is in Pisces it will aspect other planets before going void of course. Those aspects are…
Then later this evening at 10:57 PM EDT the Sun will square Neptune (chart). There will be a tendencies to act with martyr-like consciousness today especially during this time. Do not allow your sensitive nature to get the better of you. Empathic natures are highlighted during this time as well, however your ego may interfere with the true message coming from Spirit. Allow time for creative and artistic pursuits and you can effectively channel this vibration into creation.
On Sunday May 13th, 2007 the Moon continues to move through the sign of Aries, and this places the focus on ME, MYSELF AND I. This is a perfect day to express your love to your Mother, HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!!! Let her be the ME MYSELF AND I today and do for her everything that you desire for yourself. Allow your Mom to be first today, for it is the one day of the year dedicated to her!
The Moon only makes 2 aspects under the 13th and they are…
That being said, the next and last aspect of the day on the 13th is Mars square Pluto (chart) at 11:14 AM EDT. This will allow any suppressed emotions to surface. The intensity you are feeling is YOURS not anyone else’s for they may not feel the same towards a situation as you do. Remember it is okay not to feel what someone else is feeling, and vise versa, they don’t need to feel as you do. During this time it is best to take a moment and do what you need to do for you. How about enjoying a nice bubble bath on Mothers day MOMS, and Dads and kids, give your mother the space that she requires during this time. Release what does not serve you during this time. For that is what this vibration is asking you to do.
Enjoy your weekend! Happy Mothers day to all Mothers who live under the Universal Sky!
…For May 11th, 2007
With the Moon traveling through the sign of Pisces today, it’s a dreamy sort of day with thoughts reflecting into past nostalgic memories. Take the time to use your creative efforts today in the best possible way; only don’t be attached to achieving anything. The energy that took place yesterday (May 10th) is still in effect for the next few days although it is moving away from us all.
Today Mercury moved into the sign of Gemini at 5:17 AM EDT and it will remain in this sign until May 28th. Communications of all kinds; spoken, written, and listened to will be heightened. Conversations are ones of sharing all kinds of information, from social to business. Enjoy this period, and if you are a writer…write away to your hearts content.
Enjoy your day!!!
…For May 10th, 2007
The Last quarter Moon took place in the wee hours of the morning at 12:27 AM EDT while traveling through the sign of Aquarius. We are operating with pure feeling today as our kinesthetic nature strengthens before we enter the dark. As we take the time to focus on our dreams and desires we are asked universally to make minor adjustments along the way. Realign with your plan; re-vision it as well so that you can clearly understand what obstacles need to be removed from your path.
Jupiter continues to Trine Saturn (see May 7th Tidbit or chart May 6th) and now starting today we can throw Uranus into this mix. Jupiter squares Uranus at 11:45 PM EDT (chart), and shortly there after Saturn will inconjunct or Quincunx Uranus (Same chart). This is not an easy combination of planetary influences. The dance of the planets seems off step, and they are stepping on each others feet. This being said, things are not as easy as you may believe them to be. Slow down and process what is being sent to you, allow your perceptions to expand to finding why things are the way they are. Is it possible that you allowed these events to take place? Can you honor and forgive yourself for your own behaviors that are now biting you back? You are currently feeling a pull between the old and the new and there may be difficulty in understanding how to blend the two. My advice - JUST ALLOW the process to unfold. Become the observer and take a look at the universal plan of alignment that all of us are seeking. Consciously or sit back and watch yourself and how the grand plan can assist you in the big picture. It is time to adjust your thinking and perceptions, for over the next few days you can expect the unexpected!!!
Enjoy your day!!
…For May 9th, 2007
The Moon is flying through the sign of Aquarius now, activating a desire for emotional freedom. Wanting to separate from current reality is potentially on a lot of people’s mind. Focus on hopes wishes and dreams are the desires of the general public right now.
With this sensation we look to the aspects taking place today and we can see that the Moon will sextile Jupiter at 10:28 PM EDT. This vibration allows us an opportunity to tap into our generous natures and show kindness to those in our lives, or to ourselves. As optimism is ruling our approach to life at this point in time.
Then shortly there after the Moon will oppose Saturn at 11:19 PM EDT. This energy allows for a contradictory behavior, as feelings of abandonment and neglect may surface. The valuable lesson within today is to find the time to do what you must FOR YOU. Find the time to love yourself and attract situations that will build upon your sense of self esteem. Value who you are today, and then nothing can stop you.
Enjoy your day!!!
…For May 8th, 2007
Today the Moon continues to travel through the sign of Capricorn in a void of course motion since 3:34 AM EDT. However, later today at 1:48 PM EDT the Moon will shift into the sign of Aquarius allowing for the heightened ability of exchanging ideas.
There are a few astrological transits that are taking place today worth mentioning.
First, is the planet of love and beauty will be shifting signs. Venus moves into the sign of Cancer (chart) allowing for everyone to place their emphasis on family relationships. During this time emotions may run strong if someone challenges your values, the values being activate during this transit are those regarding family.
At 4:46 PM EDT the Sun will sextile Uranus (chart). This aspect allows for an opportunity to express you individual and unique talents. As the Sun transits through the sign of Taurus your talents are focused in a practical and grounded way. However, as Uranus travels through the sign of Pisces it is allowing everyone to tap into their creative side. It is with this energy that we can create a reality that allows for a nice blend of creative spirit to shine out into the world.
Then at 8:39 PM EDT, we are given the ability to tap into active decisions as Mercury sextile Mars (chart). You will know what path to take at this point in time. If you have been lingering on a decision in life, this will allow you the ability to actively choose your direction. If you are still somewhat confused about the direction you are taking, then take this time to actively write down your thoughts and inspirations and create an active plan.
Enjoy your day!!!
…For May 7th, 2007
Yesterday (May 6th) we experienced a major aspect taking place, one that has a reverb for about 2 weeks before and after the actual aspect. Jupiter was trine Saturn (chart) yesterday, which is a harmonious aspect that allows for expanding our horizons on a practical level. Sounds great, however on May 10th there is another planet being thrown into this mix, Jupiter will square Uranus (chart). This activates restlessness energy, leavening people jumping off the end of their seats. The key note here is to be open to unforeseen changes within your plans, prepare for the unpredictable and all will be well.
Today the Moon travels through the sign of Capricorn, enforcing practical issues becoming stabilized. Focus on stabilizing all structures in your life, and work from the bottom up. There may be some challenges taping into your creative abilities today as Mercury squares Neptune (chart) at 10:30 AM EDT, so go with the flow today even thought that may seem difficult.
Enjoy your day!!!
…For May 5th, 2007
The Moon continues it’s adventure in the sign of Sagittarius today. As it journeys through this sign today, it will be meeting with a lot of friends along the way. The lunar aspects today are many, so expect this to be a busy day. If you choose to just sit back and relax, you may feel your skin jumping asking you to get moving.
The lunar aspects today are…
First we experience Mercury sextile Uranus at 11:52 AM EDT (chart). This aspect allows our minds to be alert, for when Mercury interacts harmoniously with Uranus we are speaking and thinking way to fast. You will be filled with ideas that are ahead of their time, so others may not understand the conversations you are speaking today. If you are mentally inspired, write down your ideas, but don’t get so caught up in them that you forget to write half of it down. For what makes sense today, may seem like gibberish tomorrow.
Later today we will experience Mercury square Saturn at 6:55 PM EDT (chart). This aspect is considered to be more of an inharmonious one, as the ideas we were thinking merge into our minds like concrete mortar. Being fixed on certain ideas at this time may or may not serve your better interests, you may believe they do, however others (especially those of authority) will disagree with you. Now it will be more difficult to communicate your thoughts, for the inspiration that you felt this morning has “left the building”.
During both Mercury transits today, I can not enforce enough the importance of journaling, for you can write what inspires you this morning, and then find the blocks within those realizations this afternoon. This allows for the Law of Polarity to kick into play with your mind, so that you can understand the duality of not only the earth, but also our minds.
Enjoy your day!
…For May 4th, 2007
The Moon soars through the sky, like the arrow of the archer, as it travels through the sign of Sagittarius. When and where it will land, no-body really knows, but if you feel something brush by the side of your head, duck, for you do not want to get hit with it today. There are no aspects in the sky with the Moon today, but that does not mean it is not a busy day. And if you thought today was busy, wait for tomorrow with the action will be on overdrive. This does not mean the Moon is void of course, because that only happens after the last aspect while traveling through a sign. The first aspect happened at 2:34 AM on the 3rd, and the aspects start again on the 5th at 5:39 am.
So until tomorrow - Enjoy today!!!
…For May 3rd, 2007
The Moon continues to travel through the sign of Scorpio this morning and afternoon. It is traveling in a void of course motion as it last aspected Neptune at 2:34 AM EDT. This aspect allowed for an overactive dream state last night. Dreams were likely to be highly active yesterday, with a lot of running around in them going from place to place. Upon awakening they may or may not have made sense to you. Remember use symbolism to interpret the dream, not the story.
Later today at 6:48 PM EDT, the Moon will shift into the sign of Sagittarius allowing for a new dynamic of energy to kick into play. Adventures are the theme for the next couple of days, so no matter what you are doing, turn it into an adventure and knowledge will be gained.
Enjoy your day!!!
…For May 2nd, 2007
The Full Moon took place today at 6:09 AM EDT (Chart), however most people here in Ontario would have viewed it in the night sky last night. Me however, when I looked up into the heavens, all I could see was a bright light glowing and spreading it’s reflection through the cloud covered sky. The Full Moon was not completely visible last night, but it’s vibration felt throughout the evening. My night filled with dreams and wake-ups all night.
The Full Moon assists in the illumination, and while being at 11 Degrees Scorpio 38 minutes, it is asking us to tap into group-consciousness and allow the peaceful cooperation that consists within it to illuminate our way, our path. As our illuminations come to mind or sight, remove what does not serve you from your own consciousness, so that the ‘group’ does not emanate the dis-service. Tap into your own internal power, prestige and wealth and allow that to shine through in everything that you do, allow it to shine into your relationships with others, for when you stand in a place of internal power, for the betterment of all, this serves not only you, but those who you share your life with.
There are many aspects taking place with the Moon today and they are…
REMEMBER - All of these aspects today will play a part of the illumination process.
Enjoy your Day!!!
…For May 1st, 2007
Early this morning the Moon shifted from the sign of Libra into the sign of Scorpio. So now we receive the luxury of letting go on an emotional level. Let go of all attitudes that do not serve you as we embrace today – May Day or Beltane. Today brings in a glorious cycle of fertility which allows the awakening of passion towards a new life. The Scorpio Moon reminds us that we must release that which does not serve in order to receive this new life, all will be illuminated into what requires the release tomorrow when we experience the Full Moon in Scorpio.
Enjoy this festive day!!!
