Love and how we relate to others will be anything but dull this month with Mercury and Venus taking a dual tour of Gemini. In fact, these areas of life may move so fast and so dualistically, it might just make your head spin! We’ll have endless options on the table to choose from, which for some will be a delightful smorgasbord and others a stressful game of weighing the best possible outcomes. The most fruitful choice will be what makes us feel authentically seen and heard.
A lush new moon in Taurus hits the astrological scene on May 11, bringing a restart to wealth, income, and anything related to tangible sustenance. Juxtaposing this gentle and abundant lunation is another eclipse season. A brutally honest Sagittarius full moon and lunar eclipse on May 26 asks us to release false notions of truth. However comfortable those lies may make us feel, it’s important to open ourselves up to a more supreme level of wisdom. The epiphanies we have during this eclipse will be intensely transformational and may just change the course of history.
A cloud of confusion descends as the month ends with Mercury turning retrograde in its home sign of Gemini. From May 29 through June 22, you’ll need to be extra diligent about gathering accurate information, with a special focus on the fine print and minuscule details. As they say, the devil’s in the details, and if we’re not careful, we may tangle ourselves into a major mess this retrograde.
