Weekly Horoscope – 2 to 8 May 2022

A rundown of the main transits is below, or you can jump directly to the horoscopes

Jupiter has been moving up toward its upcoming sextile with Pluto from late last week. On Tuesday, the Jupiter sextile Pluto aspect will be exact late afternoon (4:12 pm C.D.T.). The aspect should start to wane by later afternoon on Sunday. 

Late morning (11:12 am C.D.T.) on Monday, Venus moves into AriesVenus in Aries is a placement where Venus is in detriment (finds it challenging to do what it wants to). This is because when a planet is in Aries, it is ruled by Mars, a planet whose energies are diametrically opposed to those of Venus. 

From early afternoon, the Sun moves up within one degree of its upcoming sextile with Mars. As the Sun is moving a little slower than it usually does, and Mars is moving quite fast, the Sun sextile Mars aspect won’t be exact until the very early hours (3:13 am C.D.T.) on Saturday. The aspect won’t start to wane until late night Wednesday next week (the 11th of May). 

From the very, very early hours of Tuesday, Mars starts to move up toward its upcoming sextile with Uranus. On Wednesday, the Mars sextile Uranus aspect will be exact late morning (10:32 am C.D.T.). The aspect should start to wane from late night Thursday. 

The Sun moves closer toward its upcoming conjunction with Uranus from late night on Tuesday. On Thursday morning, the Sun conjunct Uranus is exact in the early hours (2:05 am C.D.T.). The aspect should start to wane by the early morning of Friday. 

From mid-afternoon on Wednesday, Venus moves closer to its upcoming sextile with Mercury. Usually, Mercury is the faster of these two planets and would be the one doing the chasing, but Mercury is moving at about half its usual speed as it is getting ready to retrograde. 

The Venus sextile Mercury aspect will be exact in Friday’s very early hours (1:00 am C.D.T.). The aspect will start to wane from mid-morning on Saturday.
