Starcodes reading for the week of May 10-16, 2024

Mother’s Day weekend brings the peak of sensuous Taurus season. We can honor our first mother, the earth itself, as flowers explode, feeling our senses with color, scent, and the buzz of pollinating bees. The sun, Venus, Uranus, and Jupiter are all now close together in the earthy sign of Taurus, the earth can steady us as the Sun shoots off solar flares and conjuncts change-master Uranus to excite history and throw us some wild cards.

Venus and Mars are now in their own sign, Venus in earthy Taurus encourages emotional stability and the compassionate sensuality of this earth. It can also help us appreciate beauty and feel possesses towards the people and things we love. Mars in reactive Aries brings out our bravery and a feisty warrior archetype. While this can be great for spring fever and bring a spark to new relationships, it can also underline gender stereotypes unless we remember we each hold Venus and Mars within.

This week brings three irritating semi-squares between the planets which can make it tricky for us get our horses heading in the same direction – or get out of the barn door at the same time without jamming one another – hard to balance conflicting needs. The weekend begins as Mars semi-squares Uranus and stirs up tempers, occasional wild weather, and technical irritations. Venus semi-squares Neptune, which can be sweetly sentimental one minute, but could also inject awkward moments. It will be important to let go of dreamy expectations and look to see the wonders of what we really have. Use that Taurus steadiness and attention to garden life.

Over the weekend a sentimental Cancer Moon encourages us to tend home and family, though it can leave us sensitized to slights and painfully aware of who’s missing in our life. It’s a wonderful weekend to garden or wander amongst the spring glories as waxing Cancer Moon is a fertile time to plant in the garden and in the family’s hearts.

It could also be an unsettled time as the Sun conjunct change inducing Uranus, a time to move furniture or deal with questions around home, relocation, or domestic reorganization. We could find an unexpected turning point that eventually leads to a healthy new outcome. On Mother’s Day, consider breaking tradition to try something both unusual and comforting with the family or with our mother earth.

Our attention snaps back to ourselves and our direction early in the week under the Leo Moon. We can expect some grandstanding in the headlines, but on a more personal level it will be good to show appreciation to our allies. On Wednesday we enter a more pragmatic if stubborn time as thoughtful Mercury enters earthy Taurus, approaches a square to Pluto, and the Moon enters industrious Virgo. Together they can help us confront some difficult decisions; it will be important for us not to get discouraged but stay on track and work towards that next step.
