Celestial Compass for May 20-28, 2019
(formally at

We're in a New York State of Mind…
Gemini and Mercury reign supreme.

The waning Moon is powerful due to the rare Blue Moon in Scorpio May 18 that continues to resonate with depth and stirs aspects of us all from emotion and desire to longing to know more about our soul journey. During this lunar cycle until its new again on June 3 you’re taken deep into your own psyche and inner being where you may explore the wonders of your own eternity. 

This week the Sun moves into Gemini and conjuncts Mercury that will make these next few weeks very busy with every manner of conversation and busyness across the board. Governments and world leaders as well as corporations and their heads will be busier than ever managing, maintaining, and working through unresolved and new issues. The emphasis is furthered by the lunar occultation of both Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn midweek. For each individually, this relates to where you have Gemini and Capricorn in your personal chart and also as you’re connected through work and career as well as where you comply with authority. It’s wise to be organized and know your expectations.

​Times - Eastern Daylight Zone.

Moon in Sagittarius

Take time to ensure what you see and hear is correct due to the misalignment easily caused by the Moon square Neptune at 6:33 AM. Not all is as it seems and there can even be intentional deception. It’s not the best time to enter into agreements or commit to anything long-term.

While the Moon and Jupiter conjunct at 1:06 PM you’re easily motivated and generous. This is a time of charity and healing that is given and received along with a supportive and kind spirit.

Moon in Sagittarius/Capricorn

The transit of the Moon through Capricorn from 3:57 AM until Thursday brings you down to earth. This promotes serious thinking about life and how you’ve secured it for the long haul. Thoughts turn to careers and what you’ve established that you want to be lasting.

You gain perspective about your spirit journey and how you’re connected to the world around you. You can connect as far as you choose.

Mercury is in Gemini from 6:52 AM until June 4 that is ideal for travel and every form of communication since it’s in the sign it rules so stronger and positive. You may feel energetic and for some a bit anxious to get moving and manifest plans. This is a nice time to stretch and move forward with goals.

Mercury and the Sun conjunct at 9:07 AM is like wildfire for the mind. You experience high mental energy and want to seize the moment by taking action. This calls for deep breathing and allowing yourself to work on purpose as you begin to move forward. You can have big and great ideas.

At 10:36 AM the Moon opposite Mars increases tension and emotion. This can cause tempers to flare and people to be sensitive to what is said and done. Avoid making decisions based on momentary anger or frustration.

Moon in Capricorn

Mars sextile Uranus at 10:46 AM gives exuberance and excitement that can be positive and generate more of the same. You have added energy to gain ground and do more than usual so allow time to think about doing something out of the ordinary and innovative.

The sextile of the Moon and Neptune at 3:14 PM cultivates intuition and opens you to sensing what happens around you and with others. This is great for obtaining answers and understanding.

The Moon and Sun trine at 6:49 PM is a mellow and stable current that benefits whatever you want to do that’s important to you. You have support from the heavens.

Stop, look, and listen while the Moon square Uranus is active at 10:17 PM. This can fragment the environment and cause disruption in any area of life so proceed with caution and keep compulsivity in check.

A Rare Blue Full Moon in Scorpio

There were two Blue Moons in 2018, one on January 31 and the second on March 31 and both were the second of two full moons to fall within a single calendar month. The Blue moon of May 18, 2019, will be a seasonal Blue Moon, that is, the third of four full moons in one season. There’s debate about this and for convenience the calendar month Moons is easy to recognize, although the more rare and less frequent seasonal Moons hold a lot of energy. It will happen again in 2048 and again is 2067 so is rare indeed and worth tuning into to see what awareness is instilled. 

This week Venus moves into Taurus, well placed here, and Mars shuttles over into Cancer that sensitizes and heightens emotion and all relating to your domestic world. Energy is heightened that keeps you busy.

Key words for the week:

Discover; active; communication; motivation; knowledge

Affirmation for the week:

​“My senses are attuned to sight and movement around me as I receive knowledge and understanding.

Next Week:

Mercury in Gemini continues to be busy aligning to other planet in the solar system and will be a continuing motivator to take action and be more on the go.


Notes for applying details and information: Major aspects are angles from one planet to another called conjunction, sextile, square, trine, and opposition that each has its own meaning. These, combined with the individual meanings of the planets create unique interpretations.
