You know that dream you have where you show up for what you think is the first day of class but, when the class starts, you realize that everyone is there to take the final exam and you are completely unprepared? You are going to feel like that on Monday morning, when the Leo Moon squares off with Mercury in Taurus. Chances are that your ego told you that you had it all covered, but you’re going to realize that there was more prep work you should have done to feel truly ready to tackle today’s projects. This is going to make for some anxious moments. You know there is no way you are going to be able to fake your way through this. You won’t want to, but if you are willing to accept input and help from others, you will be able to work your way through.
Tuesday will be a better day, with a productive trine between the Virgo Moon and the Sun in Taurus give you both the organization and the steady energy needed to work towards your goals. You’ll even feel happy while doing it! And your diligent work is going to be noticed: Tackling the Honey Do list will make for a happier home, while your efforts at work may line you up for a promotion.
Shortly after midnight on Wednesday, Venus in Gemini squares off with Chiron in Pisces. This aspect spells some difficult lessons from your love life: If you’ve felt tied down by a heavy, overly emotional relationship, you are going to chafe even more to be free from romantic encumbrances. On the other hand, if you’ve given little thought to your heart while you pursue other interests, you may suddenly feel your emotional isolation. Whatever your situation, this aspect is likely to make you confront the way in which your worldly interests and romantic needs clash. Chiron, ever the teacher and healer, will eventually help you find the balance, but today may have you feeling some heartache.
Mercury enters Gemini for an extended stay on Thursday evening. Gemini is a talkative sign, so get ready for the pace of communication to speed up to short and detailed bursts, though these details may tend to be a bit superficial. Gemini generally has no patience for long, involved, or deep investigations. You will find a tendency for your opinions to change quickly and the focus will be on what is new or trendy. You will also find multitasking much easier than usual. You will have a burning curiosity to know about everything, just, perhaps, not an in-depth knowledge of everything. Unfortunately, while Mercury is in Gemini, attention spans can be short and it can be difficult to stick with one thing for any length of time. Mercury will go Retrograde on May 18th, extending its stay in Gemini until it finally enters Cancer on July 8th.
Friday is Beltane, a celebration which marks the beginning of summer, celebrating fertility and the growing season. This morning, we see the Libra Moon quincunx to the Sun in Taurus. Here is your opportunity to weed out those things that bring you inner turmoil or make your actions self-defeating. This is the season of creation- if you can find inner harmony, this season will be very productive for you. In the afternoon, the Moon will be sextile to Jupiter in Leo, creating a celebratory mood to enjoy the spirit of May Day.
A trine of the Libra Moon and Venus in Gemini on Saturday morning puts you in a lighthearted and affectionate mood. Gemini’s influence makes this not a day for lovers but, instead, a great day to gather a group of friends to hit a gallery, take in a movie, or just enjoy an afternoon in the outdoors. The world is a beautiful place, and you will be ready to embrace it!
Sunday morning starts on a difficult note, with Mercury in Gemini in opposition to Saturn in Sagittarius. You’re likely to want to embrace the trendy, the easy, the fun, bouncing from one entertainment to the next. Saturn has other plans for you: When Saturn is in Sagittarius, it’s all about the long haul. You are going to have to persevere and persist in order to reach your goals. Flying from one shiny object to the next just won’t cut it. Today, the pull of these two very opposite drives will be strong. Try to find a middle ground between rigidly sticking to the task at hand and flitting like a butterfly from one pretty flower to the next. Shortly before midnight Sunday night, we reach the Full Moon in Scorpio. Projects started at the beginning of this Moon Cycle should be coming to fruition. Now is the time to bring forward any unresolved issues. Scorpio’s influence will be particularly useful here, as the Scorpio Moon can help you rise above obstacles. A fly in the ointment, though, comes in the form of a square between the Moon and Jupiter in Leo shortly after midnight on Monday morning. Here, the intensity of Scorpio and the bigger-than-life nature of Leo really come as too much of a good thing. With Jupiter’s involvement, surprises are guaranteed, for good or for bad. This could come in the form of a once in a lifetime opportunity or it could instead mean the floor drops out from under you. Your survival will depend on restraint. Try to not throw yourself all-in to any turn of events. Good luck can suddenly turn to bad, just as disaster can actually turn into a life-changing opportunity. Restraint will see you through difficulties if your good luck should sour as well as keep you from giving up when faced with trouble and missing the opportunity to rebound.
I hope this helps you have a great week!
