Full Moon of May 23, 2024

The full moon (for Washington DC) is at 8/54 AM EST on May 23, 2024. 

The moon is in Sagittarius 2:55 in the 5th house and the Sun is in Gemini 2:55 in the 11th house. Cancer 28:32 is on the Ascendant. The Ascendant is trine the moon and sextile the sun. The Part of Fortune is in Capricorn 28:32 on the 7th house cusp, and is trine the sun and sextile the moon. These are all basically harmonious aspects that favor children, theaters, places of amusement, and the arts in general. It shows the people generally inclined to amusements. 

Pluto is  at 2:00 Aquarius (retrograde) in the 7th house, also sextile the moon and trine the sun which will (inwardly) expand the general interest in amusements and creative activity. This is a good time for creative work.  

Venus is conjunct the sun and opposite the moon. Venus is 29:40 Taurus, conjunct Jupiter at 29:26 Taurus. Venus and Jupiter are both conjunct Uranus. Uranus is at 23:42 Taurus. Venus, Jupiter, and Uranus are in Taurus in the 11th house. Venus and Jupiter are also conjunct the Pleiades, in particular the star Alcyone. which, of the nature of Mars and the Moon, indicates love, but blindness. The influence of the Pleiades is of the nature of Mars, with the moon and sun in opposition. Pleiades makes for turbulence, but is optimistic, gives many journeys and voyages, but can cause disgrace. With Venus, Pleiades is immoral, and can bring losses of fortune. With Jupiter, it brings deceit and hypocrisy. Both Venus and Jupiter are sextile to Neptune at 29:30 Pisces in the 9th house-of-dreams, giving a dreamlike and  unrealistic quality to the affairs of 11th house, or Congress. So this configuration, while optimistic, shows turmoil and blindness in the government. 

Mercury is 11:02 Taurus in the 10th house showing travel by Government officials, and points toward finances; nothing happens. Mars is 17:32 Aries also in the 10th house. Mars is conjunct the Mid Heaven at 17:32 Aries very close to the North Lunar Node at 13:16 Aries in the 9th house. Mars is being held back. In semi-square the sun and sesqui-square the moon, Mars shows the conditions of the President. He is under considerable stress. It also points to troubles in government, not the least of which are the expenses and entanglements of war.

Saturn is at 18:18 Pisces in the 9th house. Saturn is weak. The only aspect he forms is sextile Uranus in the 11th house. Saturn in the 9th house is not good for shipping.
