Monday, May 18. How much fun is it that Mercury in Gemini (mutable air) stations retrograde on the day that the Moon enters Gemini too? The fun doesn’t stop there either. The Moon also contacts the other significant mutable planets today, creating a perfect storm of fluctuating perceptions. Here is our opportunity to observe what mutable signs are all about. The Moon first opposes Saturn in Sagittarius (mutable fire). The struggle is between diversity and singularities. Getting it right is important. On the world scene we see the differences in beliefs and wonder how to find common truths. Things get jumpy when the Moon conjoins Mars midday. Mistakes can happen when we are too triggered to think things through calmly. Later, the Moon squares Neptune in Pisces (mutable water). We may all be running as fast as we can to our neighborhood bars, fantasy movies, or other activities that take us away from the stress. Throughout the day, notice the connections you feel to others and the impossibility of understanding it all. Try to rest in life’s complexity rather than attempting to control it.
Friday, May 22. This is an excellent day to contemplate long-term plans for learning, travel, or exploration of any kind. Saturn in Sagittarius (mutable fire) asks us to get serious about what we know and how we use that knowledge. The Sun in Gemini (mutable air) opposes Saturn today giving us perspective on these topics. What information are you missing? The Moon in Leo (fixed fire) encourages the possibility that these plans will be creative and life affirming. And in case you forgot, be flexible. Mercury is still retrograde and all plans made now may need to be adjusted later. That’s OK.
Saturday, May 23. This has all the markings of a lovely day. May it be so! The Moon in playful Leo (fixed fire) makes fun connections with Mars in Gemini (mutable air) first thing this morning (CDT). It feels good to chat with friends, learn something new, or take our creative projects to a new level. We don’t necessarily have a lot of focusing power, but what we do pay attention to is fascinating. Later, the Moon makes a relieving aspect to retrograde Mercury. Even our technical problems can be a source of insight. As the Moon conjoins Jupiter tonight, enjoy the sparkly fun of people watching. We are fascinating, aren’t we?
Sunday, May 24. Either we have a lot of energy or we don’t want to do anything today. The Moon in Leo (fixed fire) is unobstructed by any other aspects today, except for a daring tease from Uranus to try something new or break annoying rules. Leo is life force, it is childlike joy, it is noble action. How will you spend your free-spirited Leo day?
