Astrology: Astro-Weather, Week of May 25-31, 2011
By Guy Spiro
Wednesday, May 25—High energy from yesterday, both the cautionary and the positive, will remain very much with us through today. Reread and apply carefully, minimizing the one and making the best possible use of the other. Another major energy to be aware of today is also definitely of the cautionary persuasion. Watch for people to run into more unexpected delays, restrictions and frustrations. This aspect brings energy and power into the mix, and acting out can have spectacularly problematic results. Don’t get caught up in others’ tantrums, and don’t throw any of your own. Consequences from indulging in this energy in unwise ways can lead to much harsher and longer-lasting consequences than at other times. Very different choices will need to be made today, so make sure to choose wisely. Minor energies are mixed, and moods will tend to swing. Try to get anything important done before 1:15 this afternoon, as the moon will be void of course from then through much of tomorrow.
Thursday, May 26—This might be a rather odd day. The high cautionary energy from yesterday will remain with us, and yesterday’s moon void of course period runs through much of today as well. It covers the workday and finally ends at 7:36 this evening, when the moon enters Aries. At that point, the energy will lift very noticeably, and general moods tend to become more assertive and aggressive. Yesterday’s energy and the void of course will combine to increase frustration levels for some people, so be advised. Another major energy is positive for initiating projects involving communication, transportation, and the uses of energy and power. This can add to pressure to be active and productive. Remember the long moon void of course, however, and put off these new beginnings until after it ends, if this is possible. Moods should become more positive following the void, but good choices will be needed throughout the day.
Friday, May 27—Put the ideas you might have had yesterday into motion through today. Be aware of a major energy, however, that does throw a curveball at this plan. This energy easily brings problems to communication and transportation, especially where electricity, electronic media and general craziness are involved. Watch for the nut cases who will be out and about, and do not be too surprised at the erratic, and even bizarre, behavior some people will fall into. Minor energies are mixed, with the best moods tending to run through the early morning and from the later evening into tomorrow’s early predawn. Have a great time tonight, but remember the cautions, and be especially careful in traffic. Also, read tomorrow’s forecast, and apply those warnings through today and especially tonight.
Saturday, May 28—Yesterday’s cautionary energy will remain with us through today, so reread and apply carefully. Another major energy running through today is also cautionary. Light will be shed on things normally kept hidden and beneath the surface in unexpected and sudden ways. Guard your secrets, and keep your eyes and ears open as there will be much to learn. This energy also brings problems with and for authority. Be very careful in dealings with authority of any kind as things can go badly suddenly and with very little warning, in ways you might not even understand. Regime change at many levels might be in the air, and you don’t want to get caught up in things out of your league. Minor energies are of little help, with today’s best moods in the early to mid-predawn and at the midday. This will be an active Saturday night, but one to be careful with.
Sunday, May 29—The high cautionary energy from yesterday will remain with us through today. Reread and apply the warnings carefully. Be aware of two more major energies today. The first is related to yesterday’s and serves to extend it. This energy brings communication and transportation into the mix. Watch for secrets to continue to be revealed and for some people to fall into sarcasm, coerciveness and general nasty attitudes. Be especially careful in traffic, and don’t let minor disputes of any kind escalate. The second can be good for new beginnings in relationships. If things are conducive, then go for it, but do remember the cautions, and be careful of what you reveal. A relatively short moon void of course period occurs this morning from 5:27 until 8:01, when the moon enters Taurus. At that point, the energy will shift, and general moods tend to become more down to earth and concerned with enjoyment. Minor energies are more positive than otherwise through today, and those not caught up in the cautions should find good moods easily attainable. Choose well.
Monday, May 30—This being a three-day weekend, late Sunday-night social scenes will be positively energized well into today’s predawn. The high cautionary energy from the past two days may tend to linger through today, so reread and apply those warnings carefully. Another major energy coming into focus can be fun and social, but can also be tricky in relationships. Watch for erratic behavior and unrealistic and unreasonable demands for change. Take a fun, stimulating and unusual approach, and let little annoyances go by. Choose wisely, and have a great time. Make the wrong choices…
Tuesday, May 31—The high social but tricky relationship energy from yesterday will remain very much with us through today. Reread and apply carefully. Be aware of three more major energies. The first can bring problems to communication and transportation, especially where people run into restriction, limitation and frustration. Foolish acting out can bring harsher and longer-lasting consequences than at other times. The second is much more positive and is great for anything involving self-discipline, and dealing with authority, older people and traditional matters. Unfortunately, the moon is void of course through much of the workday, from 10:36 this morning until 6:55 this evening. At that point, the energy will lift very noticeably, general moods tend to become more communicative, the power of the positive energy will be released, and tomorrow’s new moon comes into focus. Try to relax, take it easy and tend to old business through the void of course, but be prepared for the huge increase in energy as it ends. Be good in any event.
