We are gearing up for a rough ending to the week.
The New Moon at 5 degrees Gemini falls Thursday, May 25 at 8: 44 PM, EST. It makes no close aspects to any planet, but a wide trine to Jupiter (positive) and a wide square to Neptune (Confusion, lack of clarity). Gemini is the sign ruling communication, travel and young people, to name a few.
But, Venus squares Pluto on this day and this is a harsh aspect.
This square will bring relationships and in some cases money, front and center. Typically this transit can bring up deeply buried issues, that could involve sex, money, jealousy or values.
This is an intense transit that could change the outcome of relationships if issues are pushed or ultimatums issued, but that would be an extreme situation. Worst case scenario would be endings, abuse or even domestic violence, if those tendencies are present. Venus here, could get personal on many levels.
You might make a decision as to whether a relationship is fulfilling your needs. This aspect demands we delve deeply into our associations with others and some may make a decision to end a relationship.
Venus-Pluto transits are indicative of obsessiveness, and heavy thinking and this will affect you to a greater degree if you have planets in Aries, Cancer, Capricorn or Libra at 16-18 degrees.
If you are in a stable relationship, this is not enough to end it, but certain things may come into the light to be resolved at this time. Change is not probable but possible.
We are also gearing up for Mars opposing Saturn, which is exact Memorial Day, May 29.
This is a frustrating and angry transit. Again, some things may end, and many people will sense a vague or undefined anger. Some people may seem difficult, and this is not comfortable energy. Arguments or accidents could occur.
These transits will play out in the days before, and after they are exact.
As always the transits will play out on the world stage. Venus-Pluto relates to the abuse of power, and those with 'agendas' to push. Values will come into question and we could hear news of women or money.
Mars-Saturn typically relates to police and military action and violence is possible. Caution is advised in all things.
