This is a week of self-evaluation, truth telling, full disclosure and the removal of outgrown circumstances. A Super Moon lunar eclipse at 5 Sagittarius on the karmic South Node of Fate on Wednesday May 26th is bracketed by Saturn Lord of Time and Karma turning retrograde on Sunday 23rd and Mercury retrograde on Saturday May 29th.The triple event opens a season of dealing with whatever needs to be acknowledged, faced and sorted.
Themes of truth, lies, fake news and lost in translation
At this total lunar eclipse, you are permanently closing a door behind you ready to open a new one at the 19 Gemini Solar Eclipse on June 10 2021. Lunar eclipses are emotional as they create final endings. They can make you sentimental, more aware of the passage of time. Memories and dreams come up to the surface. Look back to the last Sagittarius South Node lunar eclipse in June 2002, then 2012 when the Nodes of Fate were reversed, to help you to join the dots in what’s now come full circle in your own life.
Remind yourself that this deep space eclipse wave is not head stuff – it’s somatic, physical, integrative -and be diligent about grounding. Energy will be magnified as this is a Super Moon Eclipse with the Moon at its closest to the Earth. It heralds a geo-cosmic storm potential along with turbulence in geo-politics and the financial markets that extends from May 23rd – 29th.

The Chandra Symbol Super Eclipse 5 Sagittarius
A pair of shoes with live wings on each.
“To delight in pursuit is never to get there, but to enjoy the ride all the way. To identify with flight is to run from what is dense and heavy and to deny the pain of Earth. And to dream of a personal limitlessness is to stay out of realities that bind. The longing and the craving, the fantasy and the vision are everything here. And as you perpetuate illusions you feel no pain. Somewhere you are convinced that the very best thing is to be free, and that to fall for linear progression is to be a fool. Everything you know and follow is true in worlds beyond, and false in the dense immediacy of Earth experience.” – Inside Degrees Elias Lonsdale
Aries Weekly Forecast: May 23-30, 2021
It’s a big week. On Wednesday, the Super Moon lunar eclipse overshadows your 9th/3rd Houses. A course of study may be completing or a mentor leaving. Circumstances changing around you beyond your control are nudging you to update your thinking and discard old beliefs that distort the accuracy of your inner map of the world. Now is the time to gently let an outgrown friendship or contract go, to leave a group you no longer fit into and clean up your social media contacts.
Taurus Weekly Forecast: May 23-30, 2021
Think back to June 2002, the last Sagittarius lunar eclipse, to notice what you bought, sold or invested in. This cosmic wild card is activating your money axis of both earned income and joint or inherited resources so, as both Saturn and Mercury are turning retrograde, don’t make any large commitments, sign any important contracts or buy anything expensive. Your emotions will be running high and you may lose your perspective in the heat of the moment. Wait until the dust settles after the June 10th solar eclipse.
Channel this supercharged energy into getting your finances in order.
Gemini Weekly Forecast: May 23-30, 2021
Happy birthday, Gemini, whenever it arrives. Your month opens dramatically with a Super Moon lunar eclipse bracketed by both Saturn and Mercury retrograde. Emotions usually run high under lunar eclipses and you may be drowning in nostalgia or missing someone gone from your life. This cosmic wild card closes a door permanently on a relationship. It could be romantic, professional or a friendship that is beyond fixing. Eclipses reveal what you haven’t seen before-the truth comes out and it’s impossible to ignore. Whether someone breaks up with you or you break up with them, move on and see it as creating space for new people to enter your life.
Don’t try to rekindle the ashes.
Cancer Weekly Forecast: May 23-30, 2021
On May 26th a doozy of a Super Moon lunar eclipse activates your 6th/12th Houses-your axis of wellbeing and retreat. It will close a door on aspects of your health, routines and self-care that have been undermining or sabotaging you, whether you realised it or not. It’s time to break any toxic habits cold turkey and to replace them with healthier alternatives. That might include leaving a job that stresses you instead of inspiring you. Since both Saturn and Mercury turn backwards at this eclipse, double check all your communications before you press send.
Clearing your own ecology.
Leo Weekly Forecast: May 23-30, 2021
It’s set to be an intense and emotional week with a Super Moon lunar eclipse bracketed by both Saturn and Mercury turning backwards. For you a solar Leo, your 5th/11th Houses of self-expression are in the frame for change. A door will close on one of your pet projects, plans or passions- you might have completed it, run out of juice or simply given up on it. All the better to start envisioning something new and more exciting at the June 10th Solar eclipse. In the 2 weeks between these powerful cosmic wild cards, back things up, upgrade your communications and clear the decks.
This is a permanent closure.
Virgo Weekly Forecast: May 23-30, 2021
For you as a solar Virgo, this week’s powerful astrology is all about family. On Wednesday, a Super Moon lunar eclipse closes the door permanently on some part of your home life. It might be a changing of the guard when someone leaves or someone arrives. You might realise -finally- that you have had enough of where you live and need to find somewhere more harmonious. Or you decide to move to another city or country. Expect to feel emotional, nostalgic for good times gone by and allow yourself time to grieve and then release sad memories.
Home is a state of mind, not a place.
Libra Weekly Forecast: May 23-30, 2021
Wednesday’s potent Super Moon lunar eclipse is falling across your 3rd/9th Houses of communication. It’s not going to be business as usual as the cosmic wild card is sandwiched between Saturn and Mercury turning backwards. Your 3rd House is about siblings and neighbours so tread carefully, aim to tie up and resolve any problems and leave them behind permanently. You might be finishing a study programme or deciding to drop it altogether if the juice has gone out of it. Make sure you double check emails, texts or social media posts before you press send.
Lost in translation.
Scorpio Weekly Forecast: May 23-30, 2021
A Super Moon lunar eclipse on Wednesday 26th bracketed by both Saturn and Mercury turning retrograde are going to ratchet up your emotions. Lunar eclipses can be very nostalgic, reminding you of good times gone by and of people who are no longer part of your life. If you need to, treat yourself gently and take time to grieve. For you as a solar Scorpio, changes are going to affect your finances, both your income and your shared assets. A door may shut permanently on one source of income or you may decide it’s time to pull the plug on a professional contract. Keep in mind that Trickster Mercury is unreliable and don’t make any big commitments or investments for at least another 3 weeks.
Sealing financial leaks.
Sagittarius Weekly Forecast: May 23-30, 2021
Something big this way comes…you’re about to experience a lunar eclipse in our own sign for the first time since summer 2002.For more clues to which part of your life is coming full circle, you could also think back to eclipses in 2012 when the Nodes of Fate were reversed. Expect to feel more emotional than usual, and if you need to unburden yourself, find a trusted friend to confide in. This cosmic wild card is taking you through a doorway then closing the door behind you where your personal vision and plans for the future are concerned. It will shine a light on what and who needs to be left behind so you can create a new and much bigger dream for yourself.
If circumstances shift around you, don’t try to cling on to them-better times await.
Capricorn Weekly Forecast: May 23-30, 2021
Cut yourself some slack, it’s going to be an intense and emotional two weeks. On Sunday May 23rd, your own planet Saturn turns retrograde until October in your 2nd House. Your finances are slowly and inexorably being restructured until March 2023, so collaborate with the process, add to your savings, cut debt and ask for money owed to you. On Wednesday, a Super Moon lunar eclipse shines a light into the engine room of your chart, the deeply private 12th House. It might excavate old memories, bring on nostalgia for people and times past or reveal where your blind spots are. People around you may seem irrational, so keep a low profile and give yourself time to reconnect with your ancestry, your dreams and your spiritual life.
Glimpses of the unseen.
Aquarius Weekly Forecast: May 23-30, 2021
It’s a fast moving, intense week when events and circumstances change around you beyond your control with a domino effect in your own life. First on May 23rd, your co-ruler Saturn turns backwards in mid-Aquarius until October. See it as an opportunity to review your support systems-relationships, where you live, work, finances -and strengthen your foundations so you are both flexible and resilient. Wednesday’s eclipse is a Super Moon on steroids and emotions will run high. It is closing a door permanently in your 11th House of friends, groups and networks. You may leave an association behind or drop a friendship that you’ve outgrown or, conversely, someone may drop you.
Take some quiet time mid-week.
Pisces Weekly Forecast: May 23-30, 2021
It’s set to be an emotional week so make sure you have some quiet time to yourself. A Super Moon lunar eclipse on May 26th falls at the top of your chart activating your career and public image and closing one door permanently. A promotion you hoped for might fall through or someone at work might leave creating a vacancy or you might find an unexpected golden opportunity to move on elsewhere. If you do, seize it with both hands. It looks as if you’re more than ready for a new challenge and the next eclipse on June 10th might just deliver it. Keep in mind that Mercury is retrograde from May 29th so use the time to dig for information, check out helpful contacts and do some detective work.
Full circle in your career.
