It’s the 18th week of the year and the card of the week is the High Priestess. The High Priestess appears when you need to listen to the voice inside. If something feels right, it probably is and if it doesn’t, you probably should avoid it if possible. Mercury stations direct on Wednesday, 5/3/17. Prepare to receive some good news and recognition that was delayed. It’s been a long time coming but the only problem is that when you finally get what you want, it may be a little anti-climatic. That’s OK: what you did achieve isn’t small potatoes so be proud of yourself and thankful for the gift. It’s also Beltane, the celebration of the Earth Mothers’ union with the God in sacred sexual unity. The fertility brought by the pair will provide us with food this growing season. Take time to do something nice for the Earth and thank her for her abundance.
Mantra: I trust I know what to do.

Monday 5/1/17 The Healer
Moon in Cancer
Moon Void of Course 1:23 PM PST
Moon Enters Leo 9:12 PM PST
The Healer is an addition to the Tarot deck by Richard Harnett, creator of the Evolutionary Tarot, the deck I will be using in the Forecast for the next few months. The Healer is the feminine counterpart to the Hermit. She is the crone energy that is missing from the traditional Tarot. The healer calls you to pay attention to issues that need attention. If you are experiencing mental or physical pain that you’ve been ignoring, it’s time to get the help you deserve. Don’t be afraid to seek professional help if you need to. Moon opposition Pluto at 3:00 AM PST will bring intense emotions. The upside is that the increased sensitivity will make for meaningful experiences. However, these emotions can also be draining. Moon square Mercury at 11:35 AM PST bring disruptions that cause confusion in communication. Mercury Retrograde is still intensified so this is to be expected. Moon square Uranus at 1:23 PM PST is a rebellious transit that could find you arguing for the sake of disagreement. This is only because under the surface, you desire to break free for what you feel is holding you back. Use this transit to do something new and exciting but since it’s Mercury Retrograde, make sure it’s something simple going to a new shop or trying a new restaurant that won’t have any life changing effects. The Moon begins the day in the healing sign of Cancer where she will go void of course until 1:23 PM PST. She will then enter the shiny sign of Leo at 9:12 PM PST. The number of the day is 7, a number or reevaluation, reinforcing the fact that your mind, body and spirit are calling you to pay attention to it and focus on the areas of your life that need healing.
Mantra: A healthy life is a productive life.
Tuesday 5/2/17 3 of Wands
First Quarter in Leo 7:47 PM PST
The 3 of Wands features a man looking out to sea. Although he cannot see it, his ship is about to come in. Get excited, because something good is going to happen very soon. Moon trine Venus at 12:23 AM PST is a transit of love, art, beauty and creativity. If you are asleep during this transit, this theme may appear in your dreams. Moon sextile Mars at 10:47 AM PST is a sign of bravery and leadership. With the Leo Moon, this is a time to get the attention you’re seeking and stand out to those that matter. Don’t do anything too flashy though because Moon square Sun at 7:47 PM PST will bring challenges surrounding the intentions you set for New Moon. Creativity is the key to overcoming these. Moon sextile Jupiter at 11:58 PM PST will find you finishing the night on an optimistic upbeat. The number of the day is 8, a number of karma.
Mantra: Vini, Vidi, Vici!
Wednesday 5/3/17 6 of Wands
Moon in Leo
Moon Void of Course 9:35 PM PST
Mercury Stations Direct 9:33 AM PST
The 6 of Wands is a card of victory! What the 3 of Wands foretold arrives today. Congratulations on finally getting the recognition you deserve. It may come as a surprise, which will add to the satisfaction you will experience. The Moon is in the loud sign of Leo for most of the day so get ready to sign! Because Mercury stations direct, chances are that something delayed the arrival of this good news and although Mercury stationing direct at 9:33 AM PST will intensify things, it may actually enhance the experience. Moon trine Mercury at 4:17 PM PST will find any congested communication from the Mercury Retrograde beginning to lift although Mercury Retrograde will be intensified through Monday. Sun sextile Neptune at 5:51 PM PST find you wanting to reach out and help people. This transit can also bring greater understanding of matters of the spirit.

If called to step up to the plate, Moon trine Saturn at 9:35 PM PST will bring a sense of duty and you will do what you need to do without hesitation. The number of the day is 9, a number of near completion.
Thursday 5/4/17 Hanged Man
Moon Enters Virgo 2:47 AM PST
Sometimes after you get what you want, you feel empty because there’s nothing to anticipate any more. There’s even a period where you may feel suspended because there’s sometimes a little bit of a pause between when success comes and when everything moves forward. If you recently achieved something after working hard and waiting for results, enjoy this period of suspension. Soak up that success instead of worrying about what you need to do next. Moon square Mars at 8:15 PM PST is the only direct transit today. This transit can bring irritability and a bad attitude along with it. If you need to let off some steam, get some exercise and let that energy go in a constructive manner. Moon is in the picky sign of Virgo today so if you’re annoyed, it’s probably because you’re stressing over the details. The number of the day is 1(0), a number of endings becoming beginnings.
Mantra: Hang out and chill out.
Friday 5/5/17 6 of Pentacles
Moon in Virgo
The 6 of Pentacles is a card of reciprocation. Help others and they will help you. Share with others and they will share with you. Smile at others and they will smile back at you. The opposite is also true: ignore others and they will ignore you. Hurt others and they will hurt you. Give what you can today and help make the world a better place. Moon opposition Neptune at 4:28 AM PST is a card that skews perception thanks to over sensitivity. Do what you must to remain grounded in reality. Moon trine Sun at 7:15 AM PST is a transit of happiness, harmony and flow. Moon trine Pluto at 2:56 PM PST is a transit that will bring elevated emotions. If possible, release any pint up sexual energy you may have at this time. It’s Beltane season and the Moon is in the Venus ruled sign of Virgo. This is the ultimate day of the Earth Mother. She is in all her glory, ripe, fertile and ready to give herself to the growing season. Make sure to honor Mother Earth for everything she does for us today to give back to her for her gifts that keep on giving. The number of the day is 2, a number of duality and balance.
Mantra: I love you, Mama Earth!
Saturday 5/6/17 7 of Swords
Moon Void of Course 5:42 AM PST
Moon Enters Libra 11:20 AM PST
The 7 of Swords is a tricky card when you may have to deal with a thief or a liar today. Trust your instincts because if you think someone is trying to pull something over on you, they probably are. If you are thinking about deceiving or have deceived someone, know that your lies will catch up with you and you will have to face the consequences. Moon square Saturn at 5:42 AM PST is a negative, pessimistic transit. It may be tempting but don’t wallow in that feeling. Accept it, let it pass and let it go.
