I took a break from articles for a couple of weeks so I could settle other matters (work, setting up home-based learning arrangements for my son, getting some sleep), and finally I’m back! Thanks for your patience.
Now let’s get to this week’s astrology because it is going to be INTENSE.
On 26 May at 7:13 pm* (all times given in Singapore time) we have the Full Moon in Sagittarius: the sign of the truth-teller. A truth you needed to know could come to light around this time. This is also a good time to speak your truth and get some positive change started.
Now, a Sagittarius Full Moon would already be intense enough – but wait. Something is happening just before this that will take the energetic flux of this event to another level completely.
I’m referring to the Full Moon eclipse, of course: it begins on 26 May at 7:04 pm, and reaches maximum eclipse status (this is a total lunar eclipse, by the way) at 7:18 pm – a mere 5 minutes after the Full Moon reaches 100% visibility. Eclipses bring with them the energy of massive, sometimes traumatic change. Cycles could end, and doors shut with karmic finality. On the other hand, things that begin during this time (and that come to you, rather than you forcing or chasing after them) tend to have an element of fated-ness to them, meaning that this could possibly be part of the Universe’s plan for your life.
This Full Moon eclipse forms an uncomfortable square with Jupiter. Remember that Full Moons bring illumination to the shadow: the shadow side of Jupiter is recklessness, over-indulgence, and arrogance. This is not a good week for making gambles and taking risks. Take a very sober view of your situation before you proceed with plans.
And if you still wish to go ahead with plans, take extra care: we’re already in the pre-shadow of the Mercury retrograde, which begins on 30 May at 6:33 am. The Mercury retrograde happens about 3-4 times a year, and is associated with challenges to travel, communication, technology, contracts, and cognitive processes. This Mercury retrograde is in Gemini and forms a square with Neptune: watch out for indecisive, confusion, lies, and loss of trust.
Those who are already prone to delusional thinking, or who are in denial about their problems, will find themselves increasingly lost and deceived. Extra effort will need to be taken to ensure you maintain your truth and integrity. Be discerning about the people you work with – some of you are going to see a very different side to them. Don’t trust what people say unless/until there is proof to back them up. Fact-check everything.
I’m typing this out on 23 May in the afternoon. By evening today, the Saturn retrograde in Aquarius would have just begun, and it will last till 10 October. Karmic energies are going to be extra intense. Many will be taken to task, to account for what they have done – both good and evil. The next few months will reflect the karmic records of many people. Be hardworking, humble, willing and able to change, and you will do well. The ones who remain stuck in their ruts, and/or refuse to take responsibility for themselves and their communities (due to the Aquarian influence of this retrograde) will suffer.
Over the next few months, the chasm between light and darkness will grow increasingly clear. Choose your side, and take responsibility for the role you’ll play in this cosmic game of karmic duality. There is no true neutral in life.
Let’s get to the reading.
LEFT: FOUR OF CUPS. Here’s the card of stagnation, boredom, and being taken for granted. Some of you could be facing a situation where solutions are not forthcoming – but be careful that you are not dismissing viable solutions that could be right in front of you.
Some others could be facing a great deal of stress at the moment. This is a good time to meditate, do some yoga, stretch, and release all that negative energy. Here’s a solution I recommend, and that I use several times a day before and after every reading I give:
This meditation really works, especially for those of you who have to deal with working/studying from home, challenging people/situations, and endless Zoom meetings.
MIDDLE: THE EMPRESS REVERSED. This card is a reminder that self-care needs to be a priority. If you’ve been running yourself ragged, consider this card your memo from the Universe that taking care of yourself is a necessity, and it’s probably long overdue.
This card can also represent someone in your life who’s either being negligent at their role, or who is micro-managing a situation to the detriment of others. Keep a polite distance from such people, and focus on getting your own energy levels back up again.
RIGHT: PAGE OF WANDS. The positive outcome of detaching from negative energies and engaging in much-needed self-care? The Page of Wands indicates creativity, inspiration, and enthusiasm for a project. This card can also represent positive communications, particularly those linked to career. The Page of Wands is a gentle reminder that we all need time off to sharpen our axes, rest up, and get ready for the new cycle of productivity.
This is a good week for rest and rejuvenation. Restore your energies so you can fight another day, and manifest the creative new ideas that will come to you during your downtime.
GODDESS GUAN YIN DIVINATION
LOT NUMBER: 60
One hurls firewood on a flame to put it out. Instead,
The inferno spreads for miles. Nothing is spared.
You who pursue wealth and fame –
It is better to conserve your energies.
(Trans. Tan Kelly)
When this divination lot is drawn, you are advised to review your plans urgently and to refrain from taking action that you may eventually need to backtrack from. There is a risk that plans could backfire – this divination is affirmed by the fact that this week’s astrology is, to be honest, less than supportive of new ventures.
Does this mean that you absolutely cannot do anything to move forward in a project? Not really – if you’ve already planned something that needs to go ahead, just do it. But practice great caution, proofread every single detail (especially if your project entails contracts, affidavits, or other important documents), and if something comes up that requires a new phase of activity – think it through, execute with care, or otherwise try to postpone it if possible. Be creative with solutions.
Have a great week ahead! Yes, you can.
