June Featured Reading - Creativity Guidance

This month on my Etsy shop I am featuring a Creativity Reading. As an artist, and as a reader who works with other creative people, one of the most common requests is for a reading for creative guidance. There are times when you have an idea, but don't know how to begin, or are into the process but get stuck, or maybe you are nearing the end but don't know where to begin. If you are a creative person and are looking for some guidance,then this reading is for you.

Feel free to try this at home. I recommend using a tarot and oracle deck, but you don't have to, you can just use one deck if you feel called to. And of course if you would like a reading from me you can order one through my shop Wild Intuitive .

Weekly Asterology Forecast - Mars in Cancer

This week the personal planets of the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars are very active, making for a dynamic week. The big headline is that Mars moves into the nurturing sign of Cancer and the Quarter Moon is this week in Virgo. See below for the weekly forecast and goddess asteroids.

Artwork - JosephineWall

Quarter Moon in Virgo - On Thursday June 01, the Sun and Moon are square to each other, forming a quarter moon. Sun in Gemini makes us want to get out and be inquisitive, active, and cerebral, while Moon in Virgo puts us in the mood us to focus on the finer points and get down to work.  We can accomplish a lot, but there is an inner tension between the desire to go out and have fun and a desire to get down to work.

Mars in Cancer - Mars moves from active and irritable in Gemini, to the watery sign of Cancer on Sunday June 04. Mars the planet in charge of desire and competition, is comfortable in Gemini, and active air sign. In Cancer a water sign, it is not as comfortable. Mars in Cancer can make us moody, passive aggressive and withdrawn. Like the crab we retreat into our shell and confront challenges sideways, rather than head on. We may put energy into worrying, rather than doing something, and build things up in our mind bigger than they actually are. There may also be a tendency to be jealous or possessive in partnerships. On the bright side, if we can get a hold of our emotions we can accomplish a lot in the creative realm during this time. We will also feel very protective of those around us.

Weekly Forecast May 29 - June 04
Monday May 29 - The Moon moves into Leo at 7:12am CDT on Monday morning. The Leo moon makes us want to shine, and perform for others. Over Monday and Tuesday we will feel energized, creative, and are happy to toot our own horn. If you have to do some public speaking or performing on these days, its a great time for this. Mars is opposite Saturn on this day as well. This is not a good day to take shortcuts, or to resist the rules, as this will only backfire. We may want to challenge authority and the established order, but any challenge or rebellion will not be successful. We may meet resistance in others, especially if we are in a position of authority. Be careful as accidents are more likely today. Venus is conjunct Eris, the dwarf planet in charge of upsets and discord. Watch for misunderstandings in love relationships, or disruptions with creative projects. Its not a good day to change your hairstyle or get a beauty treatment, as it might not turn out the way you expected.
Tuesday May 30 - Mercury trine Juno on this day helps us to smooth over any disagreements or misunderstandings from Monday with romantic partners. While anger and impulsiveness may rule on Monday, on Tuesday we are more likely to sit down and talk about things on a practical level. Mars sextile Uranus may lead to a surprising piece of news that leads to an opportunity to take action. Look to where Aries and Gemini are in your chart to know where this opportunity is coming for you.
Wednesday May 31 - The Moon is void at 6:14am CDT, so just go with the flow for the morning, and don't make any big changes. The Moon then moves into Virgo at 1:16am CDT, making today, Thursday and Friday morning and afternoon, a good day to get some practical work done. We are focused on routine and practical matters during this time. Mercury trines Pluto on this day as well. We have an opportunity to get to the bottom of things communication wise, and may find out more than we bargained for. Expect a piece of news that brings a realization to something that has puzzled you for a while.
Thursday June 01 - The Moon forms a Quarter today at 7:42am CDT (see above for details). Venus trines Saturn. Any friendships or romantic relationships formed at this time will be based on mutual respect and have a solid foundation. Its a good day for agreements and social events or organizing them. Jupiter trines Ceres as well today so there are opportunities to nurture yourself or others. Its also a good day to start a new nutritional or exercise regimen.
Friday June 02 - The Moon goes void at 4:48pm and moves into Libra 7:04pm CDT. It will remain there for the rest of the weekend, making for people to be in an easygoing and conciliatory mood. Mars sextile Chiron provides opportunities to heal through exercise and competition.
Saturday June 03 - Sun trine Jupiter make for a great day for expanding your horizons through study or travel, or for making agreements. Its a good time to be generous to others and for lucky opportunities to come your way. Venus is conjunct Uranus making for unique romantic agreements, or for making friendships or partnerships that are different. You will be attracted to the odd and unusual today.Neptune is square Ceres, which can lead to fantasy or excess getting in the way of nurturing or taking care of our health. Avoid excess today.
Sunday June 04 - Sun square Neptune This is not a day to trust those in authority or take everything at face value, and it is cautioned to be careful around water. Its a better day for spiritual or artistic pursuits. Mars moves into Cancer making for a shift towards moodiness or becoming more emotional (see above).

Lilith moves into Taurus - Lilith the asteroid that rules rebellion, subcultures and feminism moves into Taurus on Monday May 29. Watch for more energy being put towards women's health care, a focus on sexuality and sensuality and more grass roots efforts for women's and minority rights.
Persephone square Eris, Pallas and Venus - Persephone the asteroid of new beginnings, has difficulty with disruptions, strategizing and romance. If you are making a new start this week, expect delays and disruptions. You may have not thought everything through especially when it comes to artistic projects or romance.
Hygiea squares Jupiter - Watch for over-exterting yourself when it comes to your health. You may also want to get a second opinion when it comes to health diagnosis, if it doesn't feel quite right.
Hekate sextile Eris, Pallas and Venus - This is a great time for magick that shakes things up,or for long term projects and artistic projects.

Below is the tarot horoscopes for the week.

Weekly update - Staycation Success

This past week I had time off from work, and decided to not only take a break from my day job, but also from my biz as well. You may of noticed the lack of Instagram daily draws, and blog and video posts over the past week. I was initially planning on recording a bunch of videos and making blog posts, but I found that I was really craving some down time. We cant be all go, go, go all the time. We often perceive that we should be producing all the time, but as human beings we all need time to just relax and do nothing.

Buddy and I at the farm
 I was especially craving this down time, as last year my holidays were all spent traveling. Not that I'm complaining, because it was amazing. I got to be a part of Canada's Worst Driver last year and spend time in the beautiful Niagara region in southern Ontario. I also went to Vancouver Island last fall, to hang out with my bestie. This year I was really craving a staycation. Time to stay home and do nothing. Unfortunately when I took a week off in February, I got sick. I was so disappointed. I really wanted time to do whatever I wanted and ended up laying on the couch like a phlegmy, limp noodle. This week I was determined to enjoy myself, and be well above all, and I'm happy to report that I succeeded!

So what did I do with my week off? I wanted to do mostly nothing, (ie. reading and catching up on Youtube videos) but I did squeeze in a few activities. Last weekend was the Victoria Day long weekend here in Canada, and my BF and I took the kids out to the family farm for a day in the country. It was nice to get out into the country and get some fresh air, well a lot of fresh air, as it was pretty windy. I met an old friend for lunch at a local bookstore (and restaurant) called McNally's and ended up picking up a couple of amazing books for my week off. I checked out a Picasso exhibit at the WAG (Winnipeg Art Gallery) and I also had a massage, went out for dinner, and did a lot of reading and drawing and looking at Tumblr. So I think it was pretty successful staycation. 

I'm ready to get back at things for the coming week, and have blog and video posts planned. What do you like to do when you're on vacation? Do you prefer traveling or staying home? Let me know what you do to relax and recharge.

New Moon in Gemini - Love and Power Create Change

On Thursday May 25 at 2:44pm CDT the New Moon occurs at 4 degrees Gemini. New moons are always a time of new beginnings and a time when we can set our intentions for the coming lunar month. Take a look at which house 4 degrees Gemini falls in your chart to see in what area of your life to focus your intentions. For myself, this is in my eight house, the house of sex, death and magic, so for me setting intentions to work with the mysteries of life is important at this time. I'm going to be looking for ways to form deeper connections with my magical practice and sexuality, and to revamp my spiritual routines for the lunar month.

Even if you don't know your birth chart, Gemini is traditionally associated with the third house, the house of travel and communication. Gemini is a chatty, clever and optimistic sign, and we can use this happy light energy to make intentions for any travel, communication, writing or studying goals we may have. It is a good idea to write these goals down, particularly this new moon as Gemini is an air sign and has a very strong association with writing.

The Sabian Symbol for this New Moon is "Holly and Mistletoe Bring Christmas Spirit to a Home." This shows that there is a light, free spirited and even nostalgic energy to this New Moon. While its obviously not Christmas time, there is something festive in the air. Its a great time to get together with friends and family, and celebrate.

This New moon does not have any other aspects to it, so in some ways it is a moon of pure potential. However there are some other strong aspects going on at the same time. The first is Venus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn. This aspect brings power struggles and transformation in relationships. Venus is the planet in charge of romance and beauty, and in Aries she becomes very fiery and assertive, even aggressive. She is in no mood to be submissive. Forming a square with Pluto the planet of death and transformation, This leads to a reorganization of power in love relationships.  For happy, and strong relationships, this may mean a renegotiating of roles or power dynamics. It can lead to positive changes that make both parties happy and have a greater understanding of each others goals and desires. For relationships that are rocky, this is a time when they may fall apart. Tensions become unbearable and we may confront our partners or they may confront us with something that can lead to arguments and endings. Jealousy and obsessions are themes that may come up now. For those in unhappy relationships, this is a new moon where breaking free becomes a real possibility. Venus is also conjunct the asteroid Pallas, showing that this is a good time to strategize in our relationships, to either make a positive change, or how to cut ourselves free, if need. Juno is conjunct Pluto, This shows again that change in our partnerships is in the air. Again look to your chart to see where this will play out.

The other aspect is the Grand Trine of Saturn in Sagittarius, Uranus in Aries and North Node in Leo. There are opportunities now for us to reorganize our routines and structures to make room for creativity and change in our lives. The North Node recently moved into Leo and is asking us to express our creativity, so look to see where Leo is in your chart to know where you are being asked to focus your energy. Uranus provides opportunities for change, that may come about unexpectedly, which are asking us to grow and change. As Uranus is conjunct Eris, this change may initially appear disruptive, but it will trun out to be a good thing in the long run. Saturn in Sagittarius gets us to reorganize and incorporate these changes into our daily lives, so we can make these lasting and productive.

In looking at the asteroids, Chiron is conjunct Iris in Pisces, and sextile Fortuna. This shows tht at this time we intuitively know how to heal ourselves from old wounds, and if we are paying attention on this day, there is a lucky opportunity occurring to help us with this. Hygiea is square Jupiter, asking us not to overexert ourselves health wise, and that we may be faced with making some changes to our health routines in order to improve our long term health.

Overall the message of this new moon is that any changes in our lives particularly our partnerships will shake things up, but it all depends how strong our relationships are in the first place how disruptive it is. If you have built a relationship on an unstable foundation, then this is a time that will shake it apart. If all is well, it just means perhaps we need to communicate our needs better. We are being asked by the universe to change and put more creativity into our lives, and if we don't work this into our routine and consciously change things, then the Universe may force that change upon    us.

Chris Cornells Birth Chart

This week myself and other rock fans, were saddened to learn of Chris Cornell, lead singer of Soundgarden and of Audioslave's sudden passing, apparently by suicide. I remember when Soundgarden came out in the late 80s and early 90s. They were the first grunge band to get signed to a major label and were very influential. While not one of my top ten bands, I always enjoyed their music, particularly their earlier work, and Audioslave, Chris Cornells later band. As an astrologer, I became curious about his birth chart and wanted to see if there were any stresses in the chart that might of been activated recently.

Please note that birth charts show strengths and weaknesses, but are not fate. I liken the planets and their positions to the cards you are dealt at birth. How you play those cards is ultimately up to the individual, and even when stresses are activated by transits (where planets are in the sky now), we still have a choice how we respond. If you have similar aspects, it does not mean you will meet a similar outcome, you are always in control. Further more, we can never know someone's mindset, or what may be going on in their personal lives.

Chris Cornell was born July 20, 1964 in Seattle, Washington. There is no time of birth that I can find, so I set the chart for noon on that day. As such we will not be able to know house placement, rising sign or midheaven, but can still glean a fair amount from this chart.

The first thing I notice, is that there are a total of five oppositions in this chart, an unusual number causing a great deal of stress on an individual. The first opposition is Moon opposite Mars and Venus. The moon in Sagittarius makes for a philosophical and optimistic person, who is independent, and a risk taker. This is opposite Venus and Mars in Gemini. Venus in Gemini makes one chatty, smart, quick witted, and attracted to words and flirtatious. Mars in Venus gives one high spirit, but also nervousness and argumentativeness. It can make ones energy wax and wane quickly. With these two opposite the moon, it makes for rocky love affairs, with frustrations and conflicts. Some react by withdrawing, others by becoming possessive. It can make someone rash and competitive, but also moody. Anger and frustration are issues this aspect brings a person.

The next set of oppositions are Saturn in Pisces opposite Uranus and Pluto in Virgo. Saturn in Pisces makes for a creative and sensitive person, but also lends nervousness and anxiety. These are individuals with great insight into others and the human condition, but struggle with solving their own problems. Saturn in Pisces can make one afraid of illness, and isolation. Addiction is their undoing, and having solid routines are important to them. Opposite Uranus, this can lead to a difficulty with compromise, and a tendency to be egotistical. But it can also make one a strong reformer and originator. Saturn opposite Pluto can make compulsion and obsession strong issues. These two planets combined in opposition can lead to sudden changes, and deaths that hit the individual very hard.

The final opposition in the chart is Jupiter opposite Neptune. Jupiter in Taurus makes one devoted, kind and a lover of nature, and sensual pleasure, which can spill over into self indulgence. Opposite Neptune in Scorpio, this can lead to a problem with facing reality and escaping into alcohol or sex. It also brings great musical talent.

A further stresser in this chart are two T Squares to these oppositions. Mercury in Leo square Jupiter and Neptune. Mercury in Leo gives one creativity, makes one an excellent performer, ambitious and able to see the big picture. Square Jupiter it can lead one to become impulsive, and scatter their energy. Square Neptune, it can make one escape into fantasy and become disorganized.

The second T square is Chiron (not shown in the chart above at 18 degrees Pisces), with the Moon and Venus. this shows that childhood emotional issues are triggered by romantic conflicts. This can lead to deep healing through love, or it can bring up painful issues, when conflict arises.

The chart isn't all bad news. He has  Venus conjunct Mars in Gemini. This lends charisma, magnetic sexuality, vitality and determination. It is an excellent placement for an entertainer. There is also Moon trine Saturn, which lends discipline, groundedness and the desire to overcome emotional issues.

Overall this is the chart of a musically talented and sensitive person, one with charisma and a strong sensuality, and a clever mind, who was dealing with emotional and romantic issues, addictions, and anxieties. Their sensitivity was both a blessing and a challenge for them.

In looking at the day of his death, in the early hours of May 18th, I see that the Sun was Sextile his Natal Sun, which would of contributed to a good day before hand, and from all accounts and excellent performance on stage. Mars was also trine natal Mercury, which would of lent a drive to communicate and express ideas.

The only real stress I'm seeing here is Neptune was opposite natal Pluto, and in Pisces, a sign of addiction and mental health issues. Opposite natal Pluto, the planet of deaths and endings, this can trigger issues around loss, addiction and even problems with prescription drugs. Again we will never know what was going on in anyone's mind, however it does appear that during the week leading up to his death, there may have been an event, a loss of some kind, that triggered issues around addiction and or compulsion. 

I'd like to note here that depression and suicidal thoughts are issues that many people struggle with, and unfortunately for some this illness ends up being fatal. If you are struggling with this I encourage you to talk about it and seek help. As it is said "suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem." 

Please let me know what your thoughts are.

Weekly Goddess Astrology Forecast May 14 - 21, 2017 - Sun in Gemini

This week the sun moves into fun loving Gemini, and Mercury into relaxed but stubborn Taurus. The energy lightens up towards the end of the week, we feel more get up and go. See below for the week's headlines, daily forecasts and goddess asteroids.

Josephine Wall

Sun Moves Into Gemini
On Saturday afternoon at 3:31pm CDT the Sun moves into fun loving, quick witted and chatty Gemini. While in Taurus we may have felt slow and sluggish, while others just felt more relaxed, depending on how we focused the solar energy. Are we avoiding the work we need to do, or are we taking a much needed break? Have we been indulging ourselves in a healthy way, or falling back into unhealthy old habits? Either way, this coming weekend the energy shifts. If we have been avoiding things we may now feel the urge to get moving and start something. If we have been relaxing, we want to start to get active again. Gemini energy is very quick and flighty at times, so if you are working on a long term project it is best to break it down into short doable steps, and to reward yourself in between, as this is not an overly serious sign. We also tend to get more easily distracted, though this can lead to some interesting side adventures, so make time in your days over the next solar month for fun.

Mercury Moves Into Taurus
Mercury the planet of communication moves from aggressive and assertive Aries into Taurus on Monday May 15 at 11:07pm. While communication over the past few weeks may have been more blunt, this week people soften their tone. Aries is all about fire and self will, while Taurus tends towards being more easy going. While before people may have been looking for a fight, this week, people are more likely to be quiet and relaxed. They will stubbornly hold to their opinions, and it is best not to try to change anyones mind, as they won't be listening to you anyway.

Saturn Trine Uranus
This is a time where structures and organization are working in harmony with new and innovative thinking. Expect scientific and technological breakthroughs to be announced. These will come out of Universities, large companies and government organizations. In our lives we will find we that by going about our day to day routines we have a eureka moment in the middle, a sudden insight that inspires us to move forward.

Daily Forecast
Monday May 15, 2017
Monday the moon is in hard working and dependable Capricorn, It is a great day to get routine work done, and to focus on working steadily towards our goals. Mercury moves into Taurus, lending more earthy energy to the day. It's not a good day for rushing about, as we will fine we need to slow down and take care of ourselves. Mars forms a sextile with Pallas on Monday, lasting until Wednesday. We are best to put our energies at this time towards intellectual pursuits, and strategizing, before moving into a more active phase.
Tuesday May 16 and Wednesday May 17, 2017
The moon is void at 5:22am and moves into Aquarius at 12:50pm on Tuesday. Tuesday morning is a good time to take it easy and not good for important meetings or buying large items. In the afternoon, and on Wednesday, we are more likely to rebel, break the rules and do something different. We don't want to follow rules or be bound by restriction.
Thursday May 18 and Friday May 19, 2017
At 7:33pm CDT the moon goes void, and then moves into Pisces at 10:52pm. This makes for an easy going evening. We feel more dreamy, and imaginative at this time.

Its not a great couple of days for getting things done, but it is good for making art, and getting in touch with our imagination and intuitive side.
On Friday, the Sun has a sextile with Chiron. There are opportunities to do some healing and come to some important insights.
Venus has an opposition to Jupiter on Friday. This makes us over dramatic, and expect too much at times from our partners. We are inclined to over indulge and go over the top. We want to party and socialize today.

Pallas Athena the asteroid of the strategist and career woman has a square with Juno in Capricorn on Sunday May 21. Pallas in Aries is outgoing and assertive and this causes tension today with the duties and expectations in our partnerships. Even if this is just us imposing these expectations on ourselves.

The goddess of witchcraft is active this week. She forms a sextile with Pallas, giving us opportunities to plan and strategize magical workings. She also forms a conjunction with Mars, so it is great time for magical working that help us to express and let go of anger or frustration.

Astorlogy Weather May 8 - 14th, 2017 - A Cosmic Shift

I thought I would try something new and write a weekly post on the astrological weather for the week. Please let me know what you think, your feedback is appreciated.

Full Moon in Scorpio 
There is a full moon on Wednesday, May 10th, at 4:42pm Central. This also occurs right as the moon goes void, so it is not making any major aspects, except for two - one being opposite the sun, which defines a full moon. The Taurus sun shows that we have been focusing on the physical realm of comfort. Everything from food, to acquiring possessions, to making our environments more comfortable and beautiful, have been a focus during sun in Taurus. The moon in Scorpio asks us to focus on how we use our power, and on spiritual transformation. The full moon asks us to reconcile our desire for outward appearances and for comfort, with the inner need to transform through spirituality and even sexuality. It also has a sextile to Pluto, which shows that this full moon is a time when there is an opportunity to transform through letting go of what no longer serves us. It might be time to let go of the past and say goodbye to relationships that dont work, or habits that are holding you back. Look to see where 20 degrees Scorpio is in your chart to know where the desire to change and let go occurs for you.
Twenty degrees Scorpio's Sabian Symbol is "A woman drawing apart two dark curtains that closed the entrance to a sacred pathway". Don't be surprised if spiritual insights and inspiration hit you during this full moon. What was hidden from you now seems obvious. you wonder how you missed it, and have aopportunity to walk a different path and make changes at this time.

The Nodes are Changing Signs
The North Node represents where we are asked to grow and expand. It encourages us to step out of our comfort zone, and try something new. While the South Node is our old patterns, and where we feel comfortable, but where we may stagnate. On May 10th the Nodes move from Pisces/Virgo to Leo/Aquarius. The north node in Leo encourages us to all find our unique way to shine and stand out from the crowd. How can we use our individuality and creativity to make the world a better place? Avoid identifying too much with a particular group as this will not help you. you must have the courage to put yourself forward instead of hiding behind a cause. You are being asked to lead rather than follow. Look to where these signs are in your chart for clues as to where you are being asked to exercise your leadership skills.

Daily Forecast
Monday May 8
Monday the moon goes into void at 5:59pm Central. Take it easy and don't make any big changes at this time. monday should be a relaxing day without any major changes or challenges.
Tuesday May 9
The moon moves into Scorpio at 12:01am Central. feelings can get intense today. We feel powerful and sexy and want to make changes in our lives. Themes of spirituality and sexuality come up for many of us today.
The sun also makes a trine with Pluto today. There is an opportunity for us to change something and to transform our lives today. look for changes and a possible ending that leads to opportunities.
Wednesday May 10
Wednesday is going to be a big day as we have the full moon and the nodes changing signs. Our focus shifts and we are asked to be more creative(see above headlines). Many of us have felt the shift for a few weeks leading up to this transformation on a global scale.
Mercury makes a conjunction with Uranus today, so expect to hear some suprising news. Look to where 25 degrees Aries is in your chart to see where you can expect this news to arrive.
Thursday May 11
The moon moves into fun loving Sagittarius at midnight, and stays in this sign unti Saturday. We long for adventure, excitement and to have some fun. People will also be focused on the big picture and are open to discussing big ideas like philosophy and religion.
Mercury makes a trine with Saturn today, so there are opportunities to use these discussions in a constructive way to make plans for the future.  Its not all just big ideas without a sense of grounding. Saturn will help us to get organized and start making plans.
Mars forms a square with Neptune today too, so don't be surprised if someone tries to pop your bubble and wet blanket you. You may worry your ideas are too big, and not realistic, especially if challenged. Dont let this discourage you, instead find a way to make your plans become reality.
Friday May 12 and Saturday May 13
The moon is still in Sagittarius, so Friday and Saturday are good days for socializing and having fun. Mars is forming a trine with Jupiter, so we feel more optimistic and are driven to expand our horizons and take risks. The only danger today is that we may over promise and bight off more than we can realistically chew.
Saturday at 9:14pm Central the moon moves into void, so expect a relaxing evening after an energized past couple of days.
Sunday May 14
The moon moves into Capricorn at 12:37am Central. Sunday we feel more serious and are more likely to buckle down and get some work done. Its a great day for family and traditional gatherings, doing work or homework, and doing household chores.
Mars is sextile Pallas Athena today. There is an opportunity to exercise our intellect and to strategize towards the future. We are driven to stand up for justice and may find ourselves in intellectual debates today.

The Asteroids
Juno goes into retrograde, in Capricorn, on Tuesday May 9th.  During this time we are asked to review our partnerships particularly when it comes to work and career. Are these partnerships serving us, and how can we re-organize them to something better. We may also run into old work colleagues and may be asked to look at the division of power and work in our romantic partnerships.
This week Lilith forms a square with Pluto. Some of the changes going on around us may lead us to rebel and act out. We can either use this energy to be self destructive, or we can use it to constructively speak out and make changes in our own lives.
Iris is the asteroid in charge of our intuition, she is how we hear messages from the gods. This week she forms a sextile to Lilith and the sun, as well as a square with Eris. Look to the areas where you feel that change is uncomfortable. You may find some of the news and information you are hearing around you to be disturbing. This is where our intuition needs to be headed rather than a knee jerk reaction. Take time to look within for answers.
Fortuna is in charge of luck. This week she is active with a sextile to Iris, a trine with Pluto, and Juno and a conjunction with the sun. She advises us that many of the changes and partnerships reassessments going on will actually turn out to be quite fortuitous. Even any upsetting or shocking news that we may hear this week, will turn out to be for the best.
Persephone is where we are afraid of change and where we may experience fear or depression, but also where we are asked to go within. She makes a square with Pallas and Jupiter this week. We may fear examining things on a deep level because we are afraid of what we will find. We also fear expanding and growing this week. We fear taking the opportunities and risks set in front of us. She also has a trine with Neptune giving us opportunities to explore our fears through dreams and fantasy. Avoid using drugs or alcohol to escape.
Hygeia is the asteroid in charge of health. She goes retrograde on Tuesday May 12th, showing that old health issues may arise to be revisited. Especially ones in regards to bones, teeth or skin issues. She forms an opposition to Persephone, reminding us not to get afraid or overwhelmed when these issues re-appear.
