Tip of the Week:
The next New Moon is in Gemini and occurs on May 30. Mercury is the ruling planet for Gemini and it will still be retrograde in Taurus until June 3. So, the New Moon seed carries this extra weight, especially since Mercury is nearing its stationary stage prior to turning direct again which means that it is moving very slowly compared to its usual quick motion. Negatively, this could cause the post shadow period of Mercury retrograde, which lasts 3 weeks, to feel stronger than usual.
Mars formed a conjunction with Jupiter in Aries on the eve of the New Moon, however, and this will produce a significant counter-balancing effect. In other words, despite the drag of Mercury retrograde in Taurus, this super-hero combination has the potential to overcome all obstacles and beat all odds. Since the opposition will also use this energy to their full advantage, be sure to as well, to stay relevant in the game.
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
A strong desire to get close to the earth and linger in your garden or at the closest patch of nature nearby is likely now. This could prove to be a very productive time and there is some emphasis on investments for the sake of beautifying your environment. Yet, Mars in Aries conjunct Jupiter will also inspire big action somehow.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
Expressions of art and beauty will prove more natural than usual this week. Your focus is likely to be diversified even with the added focusing power of mercury in your sign. Meanwhile, the spiritual warrior in you will feel the impulse to push through fears and doubts. So, if you have been feeling the need to build some momentum, this is your cue.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)
The warmer weather is not the only inspiration leading you to venture out. The Sun in your sign will activate the pioneering impulse. Yet, with Mercury, Venus and Uranus in your solar 12th house, the realm of the subconscious mind, you may feel drawn to explore your inner world instead. Or, you may simply choose to ride on the wings of imagination and sweet dreams.
Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)
Despite the fiery and exuberant influence of Mars and Jupiter in Aries activating your public and professional life, you may also find yourself inclined to dream more now. With this combination, the key is to dream big. Still, with Mercury retrograde, just be careful not to dream a big pie in the sky that requires big investments too. Patience…
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)
A call to adventure has been sounded by the piercing trumpets of Mars and Jupiter in Aries. They are destined to awaken, or at least arouse, the visionary in you. The Taurus influence will have its toll, however, potentially manifesting as feelings of insignificance and insecurity regarding taking professional risks. At least take preliminary steps.
Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)
The Sun in Gemini is your cue to get attention you feel you have earned and deserve. You will have to make extra efforts to concentrate though due to Mercury retrograde’s position in your chart which implies feeling a little lost. So, focus to be as organized as you can. Fortunately, Mars and Jupiter are bringing rewards and ambition to the fore.
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Gemini time is usually one of inspiration to venture out and explore new cultural horizons for you. Yet, there may be a delay this year due Mercury and Venus in your solar 8th house, which implies introversion. Yet, Uranus there also stands to counter this with inventive genius, so allow for the inner draw but make good of it by brainstorming.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Gemini time is one during which you are tested. The lure of both the higher and the lower roads is stronger than usual at this time. The higher is often more arduous and requires patience but bigger returns as well, at least eventually. The lower roads include self-indulgence, deception and pity. Mars in Aries is well positioned, meanwhile, to boost your resolve.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Relationship arenas take on added importance during the Sun in Gemini cycle. While Mercury, even though retrograde, is well positioned to support your activities, Venus in Taurus could manifest as lethargy. But, thanks to Mars and Jupiter conjunct in Aries, you will experience the added fire power to overcome all obstacles.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Since health equates to beauty, you are in a good position to experience more of both. The time is right to try new approaches. The question to answer is how to not get led astray by a fad that is more hype than substance? Mars in Aries will guide you to get to the bottom of things while Jupiter there will boost your confidence.
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)
Gemini time is one during which creative inspirations spike on your graph and includes a mood for more fun and games. The Taurus factor does support this in some respects, especially regarding hobbies and interests close to home. Yet, Mercury there for you tends to produce added introversion. Positively, Mars and Jupiter in Aries will raise your energy levels… significantly.
Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)
Although Gemini time tends to be one during which you are happy to hover close to home, the Taurus influence could make this an extra productive cycle for you. The key is to have clearly defined goals lest you fritter the energy away on tangents. Yet, Mars and Jupiter in Aries will serve to fuel your ambitions to focus to harness this power supply.
