The planetary information presented is from daily astrological charts over the course of the week that aligns with the planetary governor for each day, while the daily information is gleaned from each day’s I Ching-based Human Design chart, runes from both the Elder Futhark, geomancy, and numerology. The astrological and Human Design charts are cast for 8:00 am Pacific time.

Retrograde Planets — Mercury stations Direct on 5/14, Pluto continues its retrograde

The Sun

12th House/Taurus

Specific influences: 5, Othala, Albus, Human Design Gate/Line 23.6 Fusion

The Sun’s influence impacts an individual’s identity, vitality, and ego expression. Over the week, you assert yourself well and you enjoy pursuing new endeavors where you have the opportunity to share your intuitive awareness with others. You’re also known to think outside the box, and in doing so, you’ve established yourself as a leader with a unique and innovative perspective. That said, while the Sun is still in Taurus, you may prefer a more solitary work experience that provides a sense of security and reliability this week.

You enjoy a shared sense of purpose with a diverse group of people on Sunday, 14 May 2023, which enables you to find solutions that are unique and innovative. The group appreciates your wise counsel and you benefit from their loyalty and support.

The Moon

Various signs and houses (10th/Pisces; 10th/Aries; 11th/Aries; 11th/Taurus; 12th/Taurus; 12th/Gemini)

Specific Influences: 6, Nauthiz, Amissio, Human Design Gate/Line 17.1 Openness

The Moon’s interaction with the various signs throughout the week impacts an individual’s emotions, moods, and vulnerabilities. At the beginning of the week, if you feel that co-workers aren’t as supportive of your ideas or input, you may become stressed or upset. As the week progresses, however, things settle down and you receive the support and praise you’ve earned. As the Moon travels into Taurus, you seem to rely less on others to meet your emotional needs, and you’re more inclined to chart your own course.
