 Taureans had their New Moon in April 24, so now Scorpio gets a Full Moon on Saturday, May 9 at 18 degrees , at 12:01 am Eastern Time. Check your own chart to see where it falls, in what house and whether it contacts any natal planets.

The Sun trines Saturn on Tuesday in the early morning. Use this day (or the night before) to adopt any discipline or enroll in a course of study. This can include going on a diet, starting an exercise regimen, any planning function or working on details. Take your clues from which house Saturn occupies in your own natal chart.

Another fun Mercury retrograde period begins 1 am Eastern time on Thursday. Mercury won’t go direct till the end of May. This is a good time for doing things that begin with RE, revisit, revise (with care to confirm details), reflect (possibly with the aid of a journal or blog), recycle, repair, retrieve. It is also a fine time to go on vacation as long as you avoid the more hectic days around the Mercury stations. At least you know you will always come home at the end of the trip. BTW Mercury retrograde favors writing (as opposed to public speaking or verbal communications), so you may find yourself journaling or starting a book project.

Readers can follow not only their Sun sign horoscope but also the sign of their Ascendant for further clues to how your week will develop. Also note: some aspects are exact on a weekend but may find opportunity for expression on the Friday or Monday nearest the exact aspect.

 ARIESMarch 20-April 19 – The Moon is inconjunct Venus and Mars in your sign on Sunday; dissatisfaction with minor irritations leads you to make adjustments to your environment. (This aspect repeats on Friday a.m. so don’t be surprised if you wind up re-doing things.) The opposition on Tuesday p.m. offers an opportunity to resolve (or compromise on) different needs with your partner. The Full Moon in Taurus this week activates your money houses, which ought to bring some encouraging news. You may also have to deal with insurance or legacy issues.

  TAURUSApril 20-May 20 – The Moon in Virgo Sunday night trines Sun in Taurus; this boosts your sense of well-being and assurance, and you are easy to get along with. The Moon in Libra is inconjunct Sun in Taurus on Wednesday morning; the two Venus-ruled signs work to inspire your creative juices. The Moon opposes your Sun on the Full Moon late Friday or early Saturday. Different areas of your life pull you in conflicting directions, and pull you off-center. You can help resolve this and harmonize your life by consciously uniting both halves of the brain, via yoga, knitting (don’t laugh), or other hobbies that use both sides of the brain (both hands equally).

 GEMINIMay 21-June 20 – You’re in an extremely changeable mood early Sunday, even more than usual for a mutable Gemini! So be prepared to go with the flow. Early Monday can be rather trying due to the double whammy of Moon and Saturn together in your solar fourth house. Tuesday favors escaping for some creative or entertaining fun, possibly with the children. The Full Moon activates the sixth and twelfth houses this month, so you may be visiting hospitals where poor Aunt Opal is recuperating.

 CANCERJune 21-July 22 – Tuesday will be quite the action day at work and at home. The Full Moon this week affects your fifth and eleventh houses, ruling creativity and friends/groups. Perhaps the near future brings an opportunity to share your talents with your friends or a club you belong to. Watch out what magazines you pick up Thursday because you could be so intrigued by photos, that they inspire a redecorating phase of your own home. A trine between the other water signs Saturday can bring a fun day trip with the children to a museum, another city, or some exotic traveling exhibit.

 LEOJuly 23-Aug. 22 – Monday’s Moon-Saturn conjunction in your solar second house may find you dwelling too much on your financial lacks rather than what you can creatively substitute for store-bought items. Also nagging over how much sports you watch is really a reminder to get out and actually move your own body around. The Full Moon this week can activate the home and career axis, possibly with home winning out. You will have to work on resolving conflicting pulls, and possibly re-assign a fairer share of chores or child-care.

 VIRGOAug. 23-Sept. 22 – The Moon is in Virgo from the wee hours Sunday till early Tuesday. The Moon squares Mercury very early; it’s possible the Mercury retrograde may act early to delay newspaper delivery. The Moon then trines Pluto; do a little investigation because it is possible the paper may be nearby. The Moon trines the Sun late for a harmonious evening with your partner. A conjunction to Saturn early Monday puts your nose to the grindstone bright and early. The evening has an opposition to Uranus, making you contrary and excitable, but this will pass. Themes related to Juno (relationships, equality or inequality) and Vesta (security, privacy, time to refresh and focus) may crop up due to hard aspects this week.

 LIBRASept. 23-Oct. 22 – The Moon is in Libra from early Tuesday till late morning Thursday. The Moon trines Mercury from your solar ninth house, possibly bringing good news or an offer; if it brings a prepayment to you, then sign papers, otherwise hold off till after Mercury goes direct because the situation can change. The following aspects (square to Pluto and oppositions to Venus and Mars) may kill a deal or cause you to terminate a prior contract. Be sure this is what you want. Wednesday and Thursday can be very creative so make time for your brushes or camera.

 SCORPIOOct. 23-Nov. 21 – The Moon is in Scorpio from late morning Thursday till Saturday evening. Adjust Insurance, wills or other contracts to bring them up to date. Another adjustment may come easy in regards to changing old recipes to cut down on sugar, or substitute other flavorings. You can get much done Friday afternoon with the aid of a Saturn sextile Moon. You may enjoy a Full Moon meditation Friday night; write down goals and requests. You also have tremendous opportunities Saturday to make a nice gain, so put down a buck for the door prize or lottery.

 SAGITTARIUSNov. 22-Dec. 21 – Mars and Venus in your solar sixth house have been urging your to get outside and get moving; the square to Pluto and the frequent Moon transits give you a greater drive to get on a constructive program that yields results. Possibly the Full Moon will have you visiting hospitals, either to encourage relatives who are ailing or to bring your entertaining talents to the children’s ward. Mercury’s move into your solar seventh house puts an accent on clear communication, especially with the imminent retrograde.

 CAPRICORNDec. 22-Jan. 19 – You may find it difficult to persuade someone Tuesday, in spite of your considerable charms and arguments. On Thursday afternoon, you may find out some things you wish you’d rather not have. The Full Moon affects your fifth and eleventh solar houses, possibly bringing an outlet for your own creative talents, possibly with the aid of friends who alert you to juried shows or other openings.

 AQUARIUSJan. 20-Feb. 17 – On Wednesday evening, the Moon in Libra trines Jupiter in Aquarius, favoring solar ninth house matters such as higher education, publishing, religion and law. Perhaps you find a stimulating lecture on campus, or a sparkling travelogue. Thursday morn you are a bit too empathetic and can pick up negative vibes from those around you; Neptune also has you prone to daydreaming.

 PISCES Feb. 18-March 19 – A Moon opposition to Uranus in Pisces Monday can knock you off-center and make you contrary. It’s better to vary your routine a bit so you feel less constrained by rules and routine. Thursday you may be able to adjust your outlook and maybe your electronic gadgets, too. The Moon trines Uranus in Pisces midday Saturday so expect the unexpected surprise, perhaps on campus or in dealings with a publisher, church, or lawyer/court.

A gift to my lovely readers —

As a special gift to my readers I thought you might enjoy some background music. A terrific writer and geek found these archived radio recordings of the Beatles for a Swedish radio show way back when. He cleaned them up a bit and edited them, and here they are. Five songs in cool condition. So turn up the volume alright already.
