Monday, MAY 3
With Mercury’s square to Jupiter this morning, we can feel rushed to make a decision when it’s better to wait. Our ideas are grand, but we may jump to conclusions or speak on a matter too soon.
A Sun-Saturn square also occurs now, and its energies are restrictive rather than expansive. Our commitment to others can temporarily interfere with personal comfort levels or relationships. We face obstacles, but this puts us in the position to recognize our ability to overcome them. This can be a time to face reality or the practical side of a situation and assume more responsibility. Our efforts to measure up to expectations can ultimately boost our sense of self-reliance. It’s best to consider what’s best for us in the long term, and it may mean forgoing or limiting something in the present for better results in the future.
The Last Quarter Moon occurs this afternoon with the Aquarius Moon’s square to the Sun–another signal to review and sort rather than push something new. Until the New Moon on the 11th, it’s a better time to tie up loose ends, take inventory, and let go if necessary. We’re sorting out what does and doesn’t work for us.
Mercury enters Gemini today, where it will transit for a longer time than usual–until July 11th–due to an upcoming retrograde cycle (from May 29th to June 22nd). Mercury rules Gemini and is exceptionally comfortable in the sign. This transit piques our curiosity. We’re spirited when it comes to reaching out to others, learning, and sharing.
The Moon spends all day in the sign of Aquarius.
