May 6-12

Stay put, please! On Tuesday, Messenger Mercury enters stabilizing Taurus inspiring the zodiac the practice less reactivity and more down-to-earth stability. Think, behave, and commit slowly until May 21st. Only because Mercury in Taurus wants you to imagine most of your choices as permanent as possible. Since this is a powerfully decisive, convicted, and focused energy, put Mercury in Taurus to practical, more responsible use because we can never have enough of it.  

Tuesday could reveal uncomfortable feelings of isolation, proactive rejection, and fear on relationships so don’t pull it too close to your heart. Venus in Aries will square Saturn retrograde in Capricorn which makes our hearts take things too personally. Honor what comes up for you but don’t cling too tight. Speak any discomfort, hurt, or emotion to people who genuinely need to hear it so that healing can be yours.

On Thursday Venus in Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn which adds the sexual intensity and passion to our relationships. With current/prospective partners, focus your head and heart to the deepest dimensions of the relationships. No small talk this weekend!

The most harmonious transit of the week arrives on Mother’s Day with a supportive trine between the Sun in Taurus and Saturn in Capricorn. Regardless of relationship with Mother figures in our lives, consider what you cherish from matrilineal tradition and ancestors. You’ll want to give gratitude for the womxn who came before you and contemplate how you might continue the work they started in your line.
