... Mercury holds steady at 13 Gemini before turning retrograde on Monday ...

This week, May 17th through May 23rd, we begin with Sun and Moon reaching 28 Taurus, creating a New Moon and signaling new beginnings.  The steady, calm Taurus energy provides a “calm before the storm” type of feeling, giving time to energize, prepare to be on our toes and in ready position.  The shift into a new phase begins Sunday evening as situations slow with Mercury continuing to hold stationary at 13 Gemini. 

Monday morning, Moon shifts into Gemini to emphasize the intuitive connections to this Mercury retrograde, which seem to blow into the picture with a gust of information, thoughts and ideas.  As Moon connects with Mercury, the intuitive concepts provide light bulbs turning on with the ability to connect the dots to determine new options during the day. Monday evening, Mercury turns retrograde, ready to make the important course correction for this mid-year shift. 

Mercury in Gemini is a very natural placement as Mercury is mentally quick with thoughts, ideas and communication becoming the focus of this Mercury retrograde.  Mercury shifts information by bringing in adjustments and changes that require flexibility.  Changes as indicated by the location of Gemini in individual charts as well as in the world at large regarding communication elements with phones, technology, email, printers, servers and the like.  The shifts and adjustments that will be prompted by this Mercury retrograde will give all a reason to make adjustments in specific areas. 

On Thursday, Sun shifts into Gemini, joining Mercury and Mars already in the airy, mental sign of Gemini.  This accentuates the influx of information that is shifting and changing situations as the communication element of Gemini begins to resemble a switchboard that is lit up with activity.  Seeing the light onto new information streaming into situations, adjustments have to occur on a constant basis.

Friday, Venus and Pluto create balance needed with finding solutions for the shifts in the business arena.  Moving out the old ways of operating and bringing in new concepts become the requirement of the day as major progress occurs within the business arena.  Additionally, Sun and Saturn provide the balance with new information and setting new goals with the information that has come into the picture.  Sun shines the light onto the information that is shifting and changing with the Mercury retrograde and Saturn requires goals and plans become aligned with this new information.  No longer is it an option to go back to doing things the old way, new updates have to be integrated.

Saturday evening after sunset, the Moon in Leo connects with Jupiter bringing in the promise of good things to come, as creative options begin to be visible with new opportunities coming into view.  Adjustments have to be made as the horizon brings in new visions that pull forward options with new directions.

This week, April 26th through May 2nd, begins with Moon connecting to Jupiter in Leo, expanding the bold, dynamic events that are emerging to move you forward.  The promise that comes with Jupiter’s connection with Leo provides the expansion of the creative energy and the doors that open because of the bold actions that are taken when it is easier to just not participate.  Leo provides the leadership emphasis that comes with the ability to take action and move in a particular direction without outer guidance.  

On Thursday Mercury shifts into Gemini, which means that Mercury is more than 20 degrees ahead of the Sun and has moved into a different sign than the Sun, which creates the feeling that situations are disjointed.  Mercury flying into Gemini brings in more communication, information and spontaneous events.  The situations that begin to occur feel that the logic and methodology are missing and decisions have become a bit more chaotic.  The Sun doesn’t move into Gemini to join Mercury until May 21st.  This becomes increasingly challenging because airy Gemini creates many thoughts and ideas that begin to fly around, yet lack a solid place to land.  

Preparing to review ideas that seem to fly through situations sets the stage for the Mercury retrograde that is coming up on May 18th as Mercury reaches 13 Gemini.  Turning retrograde to allow the sun to catch up is welcomed as Sun once in Gemini, joining Mercury, can begin to shine the light onto important decisions to create a new pathway forward.  As we begin to feel disjointed with Mercury shifting into Gemini at the end of April, we are also getting ready to shift into the month of May on Friday.  May is universally a FOUR month, which requires additional effort to maintain the pace that is activated by Mercury in Gemini.  

Mercury will continue to fly around, tossing ideas and concepts into the already chaotic airwaves.  By maintaining the ability to act and not react, there will be more ease about the situations that seem to become the wind that blows one way and then another.  Flexibility is key as is knowing many decisions made will be changed or revised later down the road.
