Description: We have a busy week in front of us, with many Astrological energies to speak of. First we have Taurus moving into Taurus on 5/13/2018 at 8:40 AM EDT, Mercury becomes the leader of the parade of Taurus energy for the week. Mercury Conjuncts Uranus and Squares Mars. This is a volatile energy, where we can hear or say things in an inflammatory way. Its argument energy, so if you have early Fixed degrees, Taurus, Leo, Scorpio or Aquarius or late Cardinal degrees Aires, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn you can find yourself feeling angry, or you can face irritation and anger. My guess is for most of us this will be hearing things that inflame or annoy. The best way to handle these energies is by staying calm and avoiding anyone or anything that is not grounded and stable.
Wed is the big day of the week, the day has a New Moon at 7:48 AM EDT at 24 degrees of Taurus. New Moon's are a wonderful day to put out an intent to the Universe, Taurus is a sign that has a magnetic quality about it. So this is one of the more powerful New Moon's of the year. Taurus is a financial sign so the energy is excellent for attracting money, a time when abundance can flow. Taurus is also a sign of values, so what we value in life is highlighted. If you have something, anything, in your life that has a high value or you want something that has a high value its a time to tap into your ability to attract. Then at 11:16 AM EDT Uranus makes its move into the Sign of Taurus for the first time in 84 years. When the outer planets change signs its a big deal as it creates an energetic shift for all of us, for some of us it affects our personal charts in a dynamic way. The energy shift an outer planet brings as it changes signs is often seen in a physical way. For example when Uranus moved into Aries May 28, 2010 we saw major terror attacks in the Middle East, Uranus stayed in Aries until it retrograded back into Pisces on 8/14/2010 where it stayed until the final ingress (entry) into Aries for its 7 year transit on 3/11/2011 that was the day of the major Earthquake in Japan, an Earthquake that registered as a magnitude 9, this quake was so strong it was felt all over the world, and its set off a major tsunami that caused a failure at the Nuclear Power Plant. This quake and resulting tsunami were so severe that we still see Japan recovering from the damage. This was quite the entrance of Uranus into the sign of Aries. Now we have Uranus getting ready to move into Taurus, an Earth Sign, as sign that is much more subdued and calm that Aries. But Uranus is still a force of change and suddenness. Instead of the sudden catastrophic event we witnessed in Japan we are seeing a slow but steady combination of Earthquakes and Volcanic action in Hawaii. But don't be surprised if the day of the entry into Taurus we see an eruption of Kilauea. (Mars has a little to do with my thoughts on this, more about that in a minute) Scientists are worried about the Volcanic activity and feel it can be leading to a crisis. Uranus is the planet of change and sudden events such as Earthquakes. An Earthquake seems to be a sudden event, but it is not, it is the result of activity between our tectonic that is going on out of our sight. This shifting and moving can be happening for thousands of years, we see the final act as a sudden event. Without seismic activity planet Earth could not breath and life as we know it would not exist. That is how Uranus works in our chart, we are forced to change, if we don't have change we suffocate. That does not mean Uranian transits are easy they are not, at least the dynamic types, but they are necessary. To know what needs to change you look at your chart and find where Uranus will be transiting and what planets it will touch. All the Fixed Signs, Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius, will experience the energy of Uranus. The Fix Signs are the most dug in the ones who least like sudden change. One of the positive qualities of this transit is the fact that Uranus will now start to cooperate or work with Saturn and Pluto, it brings three of the outer planets into the Earth Signs, the other two Jupiter and Neptune are in Water Signs. Earth and Water is creative and nurturing, so on a collective level we are moving into a more productive time, a time when we start to work towards a common goal. Earth likes to have order and consistency as do the Fixed Signs, so we are moving in a new direction, but one that provides us with opportunity to rebuild after many years of separation. It won't happen right away but it will happen. Life has an ebb and a flow, when we are ebbing we need to return to flow, when we are flowing we need to return to ebbing. Its about balance and growing.
Early in the morning on the 16th Mars moves into Aquarius, so the first contact Uranus in Taurus has is a Square to Mars in Aquarius. Mars and Uranus love each other but they are very aggressive together. They are about starting trouble, so expect some explosive energy, such as in Earthquakes or Volcanoes, or as in people acting in an aggressive way. Those with early Fixed Sign energy will be the most affected by this energy. This energy stays with us into next week.

The end of the week brings a Sextile between Mars and Chiron, Chiron is in Aries right now so Mars is the ruler of Chiron during this time. The Sextile brings opportunity a time when we can find resources to help our healing process. Chiron in Aries has the wound of self and the sense of who we are. Mars will push for all of us to be true to our nature or our authentic self.
Friday brings a Mercury Saturn Trine, this is wonderful mental energy. I personally like Mercury and Saturn together as the energy bestows common sense and practicality to everything we do. If you have planets in the Earth Sign between 7-9 you will find this a good day to work on problems, or make financial decisions. On Saturday Venus moves into Cancer at 9:10 AM EDT, this is a nice energy, Venus loves being in Cancer. Its a nurturing energy, that enjoys being with family and friends. It also makes a nice Sextile to Uranus in Taurus, so its time to do something different or change our routine when it comes to romance. Uranus likes to try new things so maybe its a good time to surprised those you love.
