No question that it feels like we are in some sort of vortex of endless Mercury retrograde. I know I feel that way for sure. Appointments mixed and confused. Needing to re-do and triple check things endlessly. Feeling discombobulated and topsy turvy, not knowing which end is up or if there even is an up. To be expected in these times of great transition and to think you chose to incarnate for this madness…you did!
During Mercury retrograde, a 3-week cycle that occurs 3 to 4 times each year, it’s best to slow down and reconsider all communications, correspondences, and all thoughts! As always in the dance of the cosmos many things are going on at the same time. Jupiter enters Aries on May 11, amping up the whole shebangie bang and yet as Mercury retrogrades back into Taurus (May 24 – June 13) you will want to slow things down. I know, maddening, right? Speeding up as Jupiter enters the Mars-ruled fiery sign of Aries and cool it all down as Mercury moves through Taurus(again), which is all to say:
find your own speed and stick with it.
Take care of business that needs to be taken care of so that when Mercury goes direct on June 3
(Mercury fully re-enters Gemini on June 14 even though it will have been moving direct for 10 days at that time) you will be ready to move forward with more certainty and more clarity as to what is really important to you. Mercury in Taurus directs you to re-evaluate your values and then when Mercury re-enters Gemini you’ll be overflowing with new ideas that align more clearly with your values and you will be able to take action on them, with Aries Jupiter’s speedy help.
And what about the eclipses? We had the New Moon Solar Eclipse on April 30th followed by the
Full Moon total Lunar eclipse coming up on May 15. Eclipses are trigger points for growth and change.
A Full Moon Lunar eclipse re-boots, re-sets, your emotional realm. Any feelings and emotional triggers impacted in your chart by the eclipse will unfold in early Autumn. An eclipse trigger will show you where your next growth assignment is focused. Knowing what the eclipse triggers in your chart is like putting your glasses on instead of blind texting.Wowza! When you can see things clearly, feeling into them with more clarity, your ride becomes easier and more fun to navigate.
Take plenty of naps and get some good sleep.
Times of transition can exhaust even the heartiest soul.
Be kind and loving to yourself every day in every way.
