Monday, MAY 1
While the Moon in Virgo today craves some semblance of order, with a Mercury-Neptune semi-square early day, there can be cloudy thinking or a tendency to daydream. We may not express ourselves clearly, or others are not reading our messages well–likely, it’s a combination of the two. The Sun is also heading toward a semi-square with Neptune.
Pluto stations and turns retrograde today, and Pluto’s intense and complex energy hangs heavy in the air in the days surrounding this event.
Now and over the coming months (Pluto is retrograde until October 10th), we are not as open, overt, or direct about our desire for control or power, and some of us may be less in touch with it. This shift of direction can bring about some initial confusion, heaviness, and magnification of problems.
Pluto’s retrograde cycle itself, however, is an excellent period for research and gaining new insight into our self-destructive tendencies, needs for control, and search for the truth by looking within. Outward pressures may ease somewhat during this period. Over the coming months, we may reassess how we use our power.
This is the first retrograde Pluto makes while in the sign of Aquarius. On June 11th, retrograde Pluto will return to Capricorn.
The inferior conjunction of the Sun and Mercury occurs this evening, marking the middle of the Mercury retrograde phase. We get a unique window into the past as it might impact our future. It’s a critical time for new ideas, although they’re very new and raw at this “birthing” stage.
There is an awakening happening at this time as we release old patterns and begin anew. It’s a good time to process recent events and ideas and to start looking at problems or issues from a new perspective and understanding, mainly related to finances, security, and comfort. Significant new ideas are born at this time and will likely have staying power or significance down the road. What we say or write now has more impact than usual.
Still, we may not have all the facts necessary to come to a solid conclusion, and we might later have to revise plans or decisions. With a Lunar Eclipse occurring in only four days, we’re especially in the dark on matters.
The Moon is void from 7:52 PM EDT, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (an opposition to Neptune), until the Moon enters Libra the next day, Tuesday, May 2nd, at 2:09 AM EDT.
