Cosmic Calendar: The Latest
The Daily Cosmic Calendar, created by Mark Lerner, is an astrological "energy update,” detailing the energy the planets are exerting HOUR by HOUR as you move through your day. Whatever is currently happening in your life, the Daily Cosmic Calendar can help you to put it in perspective. It's a great service, and it's FREE.
MON MAY 20
A big day is certainly here and it can become a 24-hour time-period of great personal transformation or confusion and frustration. It is best to follow the higher path of personal transformation and you can do so by noting the times when each of these potent alignments takes place. In some cases, you will need to tweak the energy-field to turn a possible negative situation into something much more positive. Venus squares Chiron (7:51AM PDT) – opening the gates of healing, if you tune into the right methods and approaches, carefully. A short void-of-course Moon cycle in Virgo occurs as the Moon and Sun trine in earth signs (9:49AM PDT). This void lunar time-span only lasts until 10:08AM PDT when the Moon enters Libra. Under Libra Moon during the next 2+ days, the goal is to improve the quality of your primary partnerships and to find new ways to excel as a creative artist. However, the healing forces earlier activated by the Venus square to Chiron are energized again – more favorably this time – as Pallas makes an inspirational, 72-degree link with Chiron (10:09AM PDT). The main cosmic events of the day are still waiting in the wings as the Sun enters versatile and adaptable Gemini (2:11PM PDT), Uranus squares Pluto (igniting 12 degrees of Aries and Capricorn at 4:03PM PDT), Venus parallels Jupiter (5:48PM PDT), and Mercury forms an off-kilter, 150-degree link with Pluto (8:39PM PDT) while – only 8 minutes later – makes a supportive, 60-degree tie with intuition-enhancer Uranus (8:47PM PDT). It would be great to bundle all of these five main celestial alignments together, synthesize the entire mixture, and intelligently explain the entire situation. Unfortunately, that is not possible – even for professional astrologers with 41 years of learning and studying. The point here is that a gigantic transfiguration of your personality and soul life can happen today if you are willing to open yourself up to change for the Good. Whatever happens, it is wise to recognize the titanic forces unleashed by Uranus and Pluto, and be willing to undergo some kind of emotional and psychic catharsis in order to feel exhilarated and rejuvenated.
TUE MAY 21
Once you wake up from yesterday’s karmic onslaught, it is time to figure out who is the new you! Did Monday’s Uranus-Pluto square-off, plus the other potent alignments, shift year psychic gears into park, neutral or super-drive? Four more Uranus-Pluto 90-degree aspects will keep humanity on its proverbial toes until March 2015. Therefore, the spiritual process of shape-shifting into your higher self is more unfinished than complete. In the meantime, the universe gives you a 24-hour time-period to playfully enjoy the brand new Solar Gemini vibes – offering you a cornucopia of delights on the communication, literary and educational horizons. Amplifying this trend are flowing trines via the Moon in Libra to Mercury in Gemini (7:34AM PDT) and Venus in Gemini (12:25PM PDT). Keep up your valiant efforts to move ahead across the board, although the evening atmosphere is muddled due to a frictional, 45-degree aspect from Pallas to Uranus (9:41PM PDT) and a square from Mercury to Chiron (11:50PM PDT). While anxiety and stress may suddenly be rampant, you can still manage to tweak both sky patterns into bringing you divine and healing resources that allow intellect and intuition to blend their magic.
WED MAY 22
Just when it seemed like the universe was beginning to moderate its perpetual battle with humankind, you need to gear up to dodge a few mega-blasts by disgruntled celestial bodies. Early on, the path of higher knowledge looks clear as a bell due to a harmonious trine in air signs from the Moon in Libra to Jupiter in Gemini (12:36AM PDT). This 120-degree contact is bound to expand your thought process and give you an optimistic jolt. However, often what the cosmos gives, it quickly takes away. This same alignment starts a 13+ hour void lunar uncertainty zone when it is best to complete odds and ends rather than break new ground with bold ventures. By 1:56PM PDT, the void lunar energy-field in Libra is depleted, but in its place is the intense, fixed-power vibration of Lunar Scorpio for the next 2+ days. Scorpio Moon has the capacity to turn you into a savvy detective – able to get to the core of familial mysteries and personal secrets, often difficult to decipher. In addition, any kind of research project or investigation is given new life when the Moon traverses the eighth sign of the zodiac. Nevertheless, expect a possibly bumpy ride around 5:21PM PDT when the Moon and Sun configure via an off-kilter, 150-degree connection. Listen to inspiring music or improvise on a favorite instrument as the Moon trines Neptune in water signs (10:46PM PDT). Start preparing for the powerful Full Moon that will reach its apotheosis this Friday.
