Astrological replace for the week of Might 22, 2023
Mars in Leo and the dance with Jupiter and Pluto. Mars moved into Leo final week, heightening our drive to hunt pleasure and joyful experiences that carry happiness and delight. Nevertheless, Mars is just not at all times the most effective ally as it may be impulsive and reckless and generally susceptible to anger and rage, particularly when dealing with difficult sq. elements from each Pluto and Jupiter because it did final week.
I wrote about this in final week’s forecast as this alignment started to take form: “There’s some hazard that the Leo openness can develop the aggressive drive of Mars, and since Leo is a hard and fast signal there is usually a tendency to turn into caught in ones needs and discover it tough to hunt various pathways. That is very true at the moment as a result of as we noticed above, Mars shall be activating Jupiter for larger self-righteousness, and difficult Pluto for issues starting from minor conflicts to outright violence. The presence of the Nodes present that there’s a fated story right here, but in addition that steering is accessible if we solely pay attention.”
The difficult facet to Pluto is waning now although, and the sq. to Jupiter and the lunar nodes will possible wrap up a query that arose final week. Any Mars facet can carry success if we strategy all issues with consideration and thought moderately than an impulsive race to be performed with one thing.
Right here’s what else you want to know this week (Dates and instances are for the Jap time zone, here’s a time zone converter to regulate in your locality.)
Monday Might 22. Monday is full of good vibes, and though that Mars/Jupiter alignment shall be constructing and there could also be some frustration if issues don’t go our means, we could have sufficient planetary assist to maneuver easily via most conditions. The Solar and Mars come collectively in harmonious and artistic energies to encourage and encourage optimistic motion, and this can linger into Tuesday.

The Moon leaves Leo for Virgo that night which can herald a bit extra seriousness, so seize the gusto whilst you can on Friday. (Moon sq. Uranus 2:38 am, Venus sextile Uranus 3:36 am, Moon enters Virgo 11:05 pm.)
Saturday Might 27. Beneath the Virgo Moon we are usually extra critical and plans and techniques turn into extra necessary. That is very true over the weekend as Saturn additionally will get concerned and begins to demand that we take note of inconvenient information which we could have been avoiding.
