Venus Enters Gemini, Taurus New Moon, Mars Square Uranus

Venus changes signs, entering sidereal Gemini on Monday, May 14. The planet of Harmony and Compromise in the sign of Consensus is good for Finding Agreement. It's also the planet of Romance in the most Dual sign of the zodiac. Gemini is able to see things from two or more viewpoints at once, so Venus in Gemini can be Fickle. Venus will be in Gemini until June 8.
The New Moon is on Tuesday, May 15, @ 0 deg Taurus. This New Moon marks the beginning of the Hindu Lunar Month Jyeshta, although this year the Full Moon will fall in the prior nakshatra, Anuradha, on May 29. This New Moon has special significance in the Hindu world: it is Shani Jayanti, the birthday of God Saturn. Therefore it is recommended to propitiate Saturn to be on the good side of the planet of Harsh Reality (such as chant the Saturn mantra for 108 times: "Om Sri Shanaishwaraya Swaha"). 
Mars is exactly Square to Uranus this week. The planets are at 5 deg -6 deg of their respective signs: Mars in Capricorn and Uranus in Aries. Mars is the planet of Force; Uranus is the planet of Sudden Events; the square aspect is dynamic but not harmonious.
This is a rather problematic energy pattern, which can result in Violent Events. An obvious example is the Hawaii Volcano eruption, which began shortly after Mars entered Capricorn on May 2. The exact square is on Tuesday-Wednesday, May 15 -16.
