As ever, the third week of May is full of potent transits. Ceres moves under the nurturing stars of Cancer in the early hours of May 15th, bringing with her a story of love and loss, of fertility and death. In many ways, Ceres is the goddess of cycles as humans understand them, the goddess of motherhood — biological and otherwise. On the same day, Venus meets Chiron in Aries at 14 degrees. With Mercury retrograde, their meeting is likely to bring forth difficult conversations but, if successful,
The second week of May opens strong and closes stronger. It begins with a first-quarter moon in Leo on the night of the 8th, a moon with strong initiatory energy that rubs against all material odds and obstacles. It’s the kind of moon that dares us to defy our own expectations for ourselves. This is the energy we enter Mercury retrograde with in the early hours of 10th May, an energy that we will have to temper for the sake of logistics. But tempering is not the same as tamping down or snuffing
I’ve spent my entire life yearning for love. In cocktail conversations and other interactions in which I’m trying to be charming, I like to blame this quality on being a Libra. If you believe in horoscopes, like I do, you’ll know that people born under the sign of the scales are known for being romantics. But deep down I know that the roots of my longing for love are probably more pedestrian: I was born of a single mother and a wayward Jamaican father. He lived in the United Kingdom and worked t
The days that follow a solar eclipse are days drenched in its echo. So, as we move forward into May, slow and steady under the Sun in Taurus, it’s more than likely that we will feel the effects of this recent lunation — even if we can’t always put a finger on it. Eclipse season is cyclical and cycles build over time, like waves cresting. The moon in Taurus answers to Venus, which made a conjunction to Jupiter in Pisces on the same day, fuelling the cosmos with a hunger for beauty, for love that
Leave it to the eclipses and Mercury retrograde to make a seemingly exciting month feel as though it’s an emotional wash. However, once we are deep in May, we’ll find that there is plenty of sparky energy to ignite our passions and visions — even if Mercury’s drama, unpredictability, and annoyances slows down the vibe. May the force be with you…Venus enters Aries on May 2 and then moves into Taurus on May 28, making the reward for the romantic chase worth the effort. Mercury retrograde begins on
We begin this week recovering from the full moon in Libra, a moon that marks the close of the eclipse cycle that began in November 2021 with the Lunar Eclipse in Taurus followed by the Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius in December 2021. It’s a week that invites us to reflect on what has transpired within us and between us during that time, a week that helps us prepare for the new cycle: the solar eclipse on 30th April in Taurus. The square to Pluto that the full moon made on the 16th heightens the te
Mars, the Planet of Action, is on the move, and this time its leaving forward-thinking Aquarius and entering the dreamy sign of Pisces. Fair warning: this placement is a bit tricky for Mars to be in, so from April 14 to May 24, expect some turbulence. Mars usually likes to hang out in fire and air signs, so watery Pisces is kind of killing the vibe. “In astrology, Mars runs drive and assertion, so during the weeks that the warrior planet is in Pisces, we will all feel less motivated to go after
We begin the week recovering from the square that Mercury in Aries makes to Pluto in Capricorn on the 10th, a tense aspect that’s sure to kick up the dust on some old conflicts, include some hasty exchanges, and ultimately demand resolution — even if it’s a difficult one. Good thing, then, that Mercury moves in Taurus hours later, ready to batten down the hatches and get to work. Taurus energy is just as strategic as Scorpio energy, with a little more restraint and a little less sting, an influe
Are you ready to rock? April 1 starts the month off with a bang, when the new moon in Aries lends a fresh start to our spring vibe. A few days later, on the fifth, lovelorn Venus swims into tender Pisces and heightens our romantic hearts. Talkative Mercury enters reserved Taurus on April 10, making us slow down on the chatter and simplify our minds. Lucky Jupiter and visionary Neptune connect in fluid Pisces for the first time since 1856, inspiring us to take a leap of faith and grow our dreams.
While the internet debates whether or not Aries is truly the horniest season, the cosmos conspires with us and against us. Mercury shifts under the stars of Aries on the 27th, making bold declarations and getting a little fresh when it so chooses. Meanwhile, Venus makes a conjunction to Saturn on the 28th, the final note of Venus’s difficult journey between Mars’s driving energy and Saturn’s penchant for restraint. Saturn’s leash loosens after the conjunction, and Venus gets a taste of freedom u
It’s the last week of March and the beginning of Aries season with the Sun moving into Aries on the 20th and, like all things Aries, making itself known. It may be getting hot in here and somewhat warmer outside but that doesn’t mean that the days ahead are free from the occasional misty morning and spring storm. We begin the week recovering from a potent full moon in Virgo that made a trine to Pluto and surely unearthed a thing or two. Plus, the results of a square between Venus in Aquarius and

This week’s stars shine a hazy blue, with the Sun continuing his journey through Pisces with dreamy Neptune in his wake. Mercury is in Pisces too, behind Jupiter, inviting a kind of slipstream sense of time and space, blurring lines between people and meaning. It’s not exactly an ideal time to have clarifying conversations or settle disputes but it’s a perfect time to make music and create art. Venus and Mars make their way under the stars of Aquarius, and when Venus makes a sextile to Chiron in
It’s the second week of March and the Sun shines on under the stars of Pisces, bolstered by Jupiter and looking toward Neptune. Heralded as a hopeful time of possibility, we watch threats of WWIII or we live through them ourselves. Disjunctive as the messaging may seem, we know that Jupiter expands and Pisces is in the habit of dissolving boundaries. Here, we see the tenuous and integral relation between nations — across waters — here we see how one small move can intimate great destruction. Ven
new moon rising in the desert sky in White Sands National Monument In astrology, the moon controls our emotions and intuition. It dictates how we connect with others and express our thoughts — basically, it governs over all things relating to our deepest darkest selves. On March 2, we’ll experience a new moon in Pisces, meaning that the emotional luminary will be in an even more sentimental astrological spot. While we’ll be in our feels, it’s not necessarily a bad thing. Narayana Montúfar, senio
As we prepare to leave February, the moon in Capricorn and Aquarius awakens our awareness of time. Things are changing and we realise that our actions must also adapt to the current rapid pace of time — regardless of if we feel ready or not. The first days of March are jam-packed with astrological activity as we welcome a powerful lunation, a triple conjunction, two planetary shifts, and what some astrologers call the most fortunate day of the year. Arriving on 2nd March is the new moon in Pisce
Thought 2022 was the Year of the Tiger? Wrong. While Chinese astrology might suggest that the big cat is in the spotlight right now, when it comes to the world of travel, it is undeniably the year of the GOAT: the “greatest of all trips”.
