The Waning Aries Moon is bringing to life the Aries Planets between Sunday May 1 and Monday, May 2.
Still moving within the orb of the melancholy Moon-Venus opposition to Saturn that was exact yesterday, today the Moon’s mood is changing, expressing Aries’ aspirations by becoming conjunct Jupiter and Mars. She will carry this fiery vision into the fertile ground of the Taurus New Moon, due on Tuesday, May 3.
Monday is the last day of the Moon’s cycle, ideal time to burn the dross (Fire), daring to hope for action (Mars) and improvements (Jupiter) in many areas of life. Theme of new beginnings, turning points, courage, faith, passion, all legacies of the previous New Moon in Aries.
On Monday the Moon will be already in the Sun’s aura, moving into Taurus at 3.58 pm (Australia Eastern Standard Time).
Tomorrow, May 3, the Moon will unite with the Sun releasing the seed of the new cycle. Hopefully the coming period will be more relaxed than the one that began in April with the pyrotechnic New Moon in Aries. If interested click HERE for my post describing the Moon in Aries on April 5 2011.
MAY 9: the waning Moon in the Tropical Sign of Pisces will be conjunct Jupiter, event visible in the early eastern sky before sunrise. Uranus will be there also, invisible unless you are looking through a powerful telescope.
Below is a snapshot of this conjunction, looking toward the East around 5 am.
