Today's Astrology Forecast | Friday, May 29, 2020 - what's making it hard to breathe, what's burning, seeing the ways we are tied to the past by the choices we have made, time to adjust, time to choose

The Moon leaves fiery Leo (with Minneapolis ablaze) and moves into the sign of - "let's clean up the mess/fix this thing" Virgo at 7:40AM EDT.

Yesterday, we had a LONG void Moon as Mercury moved through the North Node and then crossed the Aries point (0 degrees of a cardinal sign) on her/his way into Cancer.

So, he goes from his home sign where he is strong and as stable as Mercury gets (other than his time in Virgo each year) and into a water sign - his least favorite element. A message/information/decision about our future. And our collective attention on ONE THING.

And in Cancer, we get to feel what everyone is saying.

We saw the video of a police officer kneeling on a black man's neck as he begged for breath - the officers faces robotic and unfeeling as the crowds screamed for them to help. In a time when so many people are struggling to breathe (from a disease/a mask/suffocating situations) - kneeling for almost 10 minutes until the man's words and breathing ceased ...

Grief turning to anger. Anger to fire. A Leo Moon going void off a square to radical and disruptive Uranus and not answering to anyone. A zeitgeist moment. Torn between the old world - where remember this stuff still happened, but we just didn't have to look at it - and a new world it looks like our children or grandchildren might be building - from our ashes - if we don't get our arms, and hearts, around this.

Everyone feeling that insecurity/inability to get control of anything (the dying man, the crowds, the police) .... again the need to bring everyone to the table or that table is getting flipped!

Control doesn't even exist anymore - WE ARE TIED TO THE PAST BY THE CHOICES WE HAVE MADE, but there is nothing there. Time ran out. Time already ran out. That's why we are feeling like we are not all here. Because we aren't. 

Keep in mind that North Node in Gemini. Talk. Listen. Learn. Keep things small and local. There are moves you can make/decisions/choices that can make you feel better. It will be the light touch that works not some heavy handed broad thing. It's not about what we believe (that Sag south node) it's about what we see - what do you see??  

What situation are you trying to control that is out of your hands? What is suffocating you? Where is the fire in your own life burning? Where is the mess?  Where is our anger/our actions only hurting ourselves?

Let's look at today's aspects.

The Moon is in Virgo now so we are nurtured through our daily activities, crossing t's and dotting i's, fixing what's broken. Be advised a lunar Virgo can get very nitpicky/notice the problems. This can be helpful or just make everyone batsh*t crazy.

Mercury is in Cancer now. We will be feeling what people are saying. Our own words will be impacting other people emotionally, too.

The Moon (our feelings) and Mercury (our head) are both in signs where they don't want to be, but helped by their mutual reception to each other - the best of both signs can be activated here. Mercury gets the use of his analytical/practical Virgo and the Moon the use of her feeling Cancer.

With Mercury in Cancer we will need to step back now and then and ask ourselves - "am I feeling the actual situation or am I feeling my thinking about the situation?".

This day is challenging (maybe mostly tonight, so it could just run into tomorrow) and tomorrow could be challenging, too.

We have the First Quarter Square of this lunar cycle.

The Moon in Virgo squaring the Sun in Gemini.

Gemini wants choices and Virgo wants to narrow our focus onto just one, practical thing. Making a CHOICE allows the rest of the lunar month to evolve - our muses are standing by, but this is a free will universe (and yes, we made some of the choices before we got here this time around, so it's not so cut and dried) - we have to make the first move. At the same time, the Moon is opposing and the Sun is squaring Mars and Ceres in Pisces. We will really be feeling the stuff that is out of our control. And the more we push the further we get from what we want!

The other aspects today can help guide our decisions/our next moves.

We have the Sun sextiling Chiron - here is a light on that very old, very deep wounding and a need to address it.

OK, so we know the Moon in Virgo wants to help/fix things and he is being aided by his mutual reception to Mercury/Cancer, so stronger than our usual Virgo Moon.

So, we can see what is wrong and we can see something we can do about it.

It won't be totally fixable, but that doesn't mean we get to just look the other way - remember this Chiron wounding isn't about the healing, but about the "living with the wounding". Choose. Decide. Take some healing action. Virgo rules our health, our work, our daily habits. What needs to change? Be flexible. Gemini rules our communication, our neighborhood, our siblings, our thinking. What needs healing? What needs practical action? Talk it out. This is a square, so it's not going to be comfortable. We haven't been comfortable in months anyway. The only way through it is through it. What houses do Gemini and Virgo rule in your own chart?

Another aspect we have today is a testy inconjunct between Mercury and a retrograde Saturn.

With Mercury in Cancer words come from the gut. Words are taken personally. They can be soothing or they can be painful. And here is Saturn (authority/responsibility) retrograding through detached Aquarius saying the rules are the rules, here are your responsibilities, "you are way too sensitive, you snowflake, grow up!". This is a rock and a hard place. There aren't really any answers here. Adjustments are needed.

With a strong aspect to Chiron and a Mercury/Saturn inconjunct we can all be easily triggered. 

Keep that gun in your holster folks.

When Mercury crossed that 0 degrees Cancer yesterday he set up a marker for the June 21-22 eclipse that will set up the rest of 2020, so we can see what that will be about!

Check the news/your local newspaper. Mercury is a trickster - the most important stories will not always be on the front page. Check your inbox/mailbox.

We won't be able to say we didn't get a heads up. We got our heads up.

Our heart and heads can align today. What do we do with this?

Hubs and I can check our mailbox pretty easily right now, since it's lying in our driveway, taken out (along with some of our fence) by a newbie tractor trailer driver trying to back up last night because he hadn't noticed the road was closed. They are re-paving Main Street at midnight and it was crazy loud, but hubs, somehow with a kind of super-hearing available to him only in times of a "something is happening to my stuff" emergency, since I didn't hear a thing and he recently heard me sneaking his mother's old cuckoo clock out of the dining room and up into the attic - jumped out of bed and ran outside in his boxers. He kept a cool head, collected $100 from the guy and talked the police out of giving him a ticket which he said would cost him his job. Twenty/ten/five years ago (months ago?) he might have been angry. Anyone can change. Plus time is stretchy now.

Funny how the other day when I accidentally locked myself out and was yelling and banging ... he somehow didn't hear a thing ;)
