The Astrologer Daily: May 19th, 2013

Beware of being hypercritical today. The perfectionist Virgo Moon is forms a square to both Venus and Jupiter. This can tempt you to enforce the rules when it would be better to relax. If someone does a poor job with a project, be kind. Offer constructive criticism. Otherwise, you could make an enemy of a colleague who should be your friend.
Fortunately, the Moon is forming a trine with action-oriented Mars. It will be easy to find solutions to problems, provided you are kind and considerate. Nobody likes to be humiliated, especially in a public setting. If you have some advice, give it in private.
Looking ahead, partnerships will be a source of strain. It will be hard to overlook your best friend’s annoying habits once the Moon in Libra forms hard angles to both Uranus and Pluto.
The Sun is at 28 degrees Taurus, the Moon is in Virgo, Mercury is in Gemini, Venus is in Gemini and Mars is in Taurus. With this combination of planetary energies try to: Clean house ruthlessly. Don’t forget those nooks and crannies. Try not to: Neglect your own comforts and desires. Pamper yourself.
Today’s exact aspects and their keywords are:
- Moon Square Venus: Overindulgent.
- Moon Square Jupiter: Overindulgence.
- Moon Trine Mars: Fireworks.
- Saturn, Pluto are retrograde.
And finally happy birthday to Grace Jones, Pete Townshend and Phil Rudd. If it’s your birthday today, the year ahead will invite you to loosen up. Try not to get frustrated when people fall short of your expectations. At the same time, keep pushing yourself to attain higher levels of excellence. The only person you should worry about is you. Let everyone else make their own mistakes.
