This week begins with Mercury retrograding right into the Sun on Monday. The Moon will have just crossed into Virgo from Leo, the two signs ruled by Mercury and the Sun, so expect some feelings to arise! We may experience that we are not being heard, or we may not be fully listening ourselves! This can be particularly true with people in authority. We may even “give” or “take” some position of authority to an equal. The star that bridges these two signs is Uttaraphalguni, ruled by Aryaman, the best friend or more precisely, the one who introduces the bride and groom, and it is about making contracts (or marriage), so be mindful of what you agree to and if any middlemen are actually helping!
May 2nd, Venus joins Mars in Gemini, creating some sexual tension in our mind and thoughts. Do we want to connect, or do we want to argue…both? May 3rd, the Moon moves into the path of Mars’ one-way gaze, giving us some fire on what we want to manifest on the Earth plane.
May 4th, the Moon moves into Libra, joining the South Node, Ketu and preparing us for the Lunar Eclipse. They will be in exact conjunction just before 12pm HT (3pm PDT) in Swati, so make sure you are welding your sword from a place of power and self-awareness, and not swinging at every phantom. You may find yourself feeling cut-off from your emotions here, particularly in relationships, and maybe more than just a little self-righteous with Jupiter and the Sun across the way in Aries, and Mercury Retrograde bringing miscommunications!
The actual eclipse will be on the morning of May 5th, and will have us finding our own path through the woods, even as we attempt to recalibrate in our relations with others. The 6th and 7th bring the Moon in its most emotionally tumultuous place in Scorpio, with the ruler 8 houses from it, asking us to face our biggest fears and release our sense of control over others.

This week you are going to have to face the hard work of compromise, contracts and not just getting your way all the time. Other people are pushing back, and you are realizing that there is no “we” if it is always “me”. Mercury is unfortunately retrograding you back over issues you thought were resolved and agreements you thought were already made. Time to clean up the mess once and for all and really hear what the other is saying. The Lunar Eclipse will both give you the feeling of home through your relationships, and the awareness that old patterns of avoidance can cut through your presumed peace at any moment.
This week brings your ruling planet into your 2nd house of money and values on the 2nd, so be prepared to fix your attention on that subject for the next few weeks! You may have some debts to pay or be about to get in some debt, and you may also be finding your own value through both your service to others and any ways in which you feel like a victim of others. With so many planets still piled up in your 12th, you are still not totally present with the details, but this Lunar eclipse in your 6th will force you out of your slumber with hard work and the details, and teach you some new skills, like asking for help?
This week you are still going over old ground with your home/living situation, as well as with your identity within community. When the Moon transits Virgo 1-3rd, perhaps some new agreements will be made. This Lunar eclipse will bring you into your creativity, children and what you love like a child, and help you find your value and values through that, but it will also remind you that if you are not fully living within your values, that will come out in sudden harsh and erratic ways.
This week asks you to use your will to be organized, precise and make some agreements. You may feel like you are going over old ground, and likely you are because this is not an area of life you pay much attention to. Transiting the 9th it can and will be dharmic for you to embrace this as a time to review any old contracts and revise or make new ones as they need to be. The more precise you can be, the more everyone will feel good in the end. This Lunar eclipse in your 4th house of home, the mother and peace in your heart is forcing you to look where you do not want to and reminding you that avoidance brings more pain.
This week you will find yourself in a personal (and likely internal) battle between yourself and the world around you. Who is on your side? Who is not? What is your value, inherent and actual? It is also a time when community has a lot to offer you in term of career/status, home/peace and learning new things This might be a good time to reflect upon if you are living your values in line with your beliefs, or if they have gotten somehow estranged from one another. Be particularly aware of any contracts or financial dealings you may be entering on the 1-3rd. This Lunar eclipse will help you learn to surrender your ego and will and become less attached to the results of your efforts.
This week you are feeling the continuation of a total lack of control from last week, and at this point you may even be enjoying it! With the Moon as your 11th lord of community and highest ambitions riding in your first house at the beginning of the week, you may find yourself opening up to the world around you. You are facing old fears now around relationships, identity, career/status, and learning how to let go. The Lunar eclipse will bring you into your value in society and force you to look at the ways in which you have been valuing yourself for better or worse.
This week you are dealing in spades with your career, reputation and status and any disappointment you feel through that. The lesson is to let go of your attachment to how it is supposed to be and be mindful of any agreements or contracts you may be making. Note that others are sending some commitment and pressure and then tap into if its what you really want and ultimately in your best interest. Consult your dreams and meditation practice for answers. The Lunar Eclipse is bringing you into your own identity and what you have not been looking at through this. Much of what seems “out of the blue” is just what you have been avoiding. Wear your heart on your sleeve and allow yourself to see yourself truthfully and without shame.
This week you are still riding the torrents of having your ruler in the 8th house of what you can’t control and so many planets in your 6th house of hard work and suffering. The Moon in Virgo will be placing your heart in community and striving for what you most desire in this world and the week ends with you wearing your heart, and your status and reputation on your face, so allow yourself to continue to surrender to what is rather than what you want things to be. The Lunar Eclipse is happening in your 12th house of loss, disappointment, confusion and ultimately letting go.
This week is one that begins with your focus on your career and reputation and offers you some courage and discipline to manifest creative ways of taking care of your responsibilities.

The Lunar Eclipse is forcing you to look at what you tend to avoid in community, compromising with others, and allow yourself to find the balance between “me” and “we”.
This week begins with your focus on higher wisdom and teachings. Venus moving into your 6th house to join Mars brings your creative energy and capacity to take care of responsibilities into the realm of hard work and service and this will reflect upon what you believe. Be like the Makara, the sea goat you are named after (also shown as a crocodile) and wait and observe before you make a move. The Lunar Eclipse is happening in your 10th house of career, status/reputation and external responsibilities and is of your 7th lord of relationships and compromise. What have you been avoiding?
This week begins with you facing some unexpected events that wake you and have you dealing with the difficult details. Your creativity and passion is fuel for your fire. With your planet of both highest truth and home and the heart moving into your 5th house of what you love, it is by embracing that where your blessings, peace and even reputation come. The solar eclipse asked you to uplevel your skill set, and the Lunar Eclipse is going to force you to remember your faith and wisdom. It’s ok to ask for help from teachers, counselors or mentors.
This week you are finding what you love through relationships with others. Allow your beliefs to bring you courage and discipline in your relations, rather than arguing and judgement. The Lunar Eclipse is occurring in your 8th house of unexpected events and facing your fears, and it is through facing your fear of getting bogged down in the mundane aspects of relating that you get taken by surprise. Wield your sword of independence, and also know when to lay it down and surrender.
