Prominent Mode: Mutable, Fixed
Prominent Element: Earth, Air, Fire

Retrogrades: Pluto Rx, Juno Rx
It’s best not to argue with anyone today because nobody wins. Instead, consider a need to release the old and accept the new.
A mutual reception between the Moon in Aries and Mars in Cancer makes this an excellent day to move toward something new which is more emotionally fulfilling and therefore, more secure.
But the brazen energy of the Aries Moon along with an out of bounds Mercury needs an outlet, especially a vocal one.
This is fighter energy, especially for those resisting change or clinging to perceptions of control. Conflict may be external or internal, often felt in the head with an Aries Moon.
Also watch for mishaps with the feet, compliments of grounded Fixed Earth energy fighting for prominence with Air and Fire.
Intense anxiety may be felt for those who don’t have consistent space to express their own thoughts and emotions.
Action must be done and the true self must be expressed, but as long as it’s action that feels both steady AND exciting, you know you’re moving in the right direction.
You also know you’re on the right track if you’re flowing with ‘what is.’ If a door is closed, there’s no need to bust it down. You can simply wait for it to open. When things don’t go your way, consider whether your way may need an adjustment or a major life change.
Stay Flexible To Move Forward

It’s a busy week with possibly a lot of activity and paperwork. But it’s a good week for communications and contracts. Running errands can happen more quickly and smoothly, thanks to Mercury in Gemini.
You might feel more appreciative of social systems and agreements which allow humans to function together in a society or community.
The whole month is full of change. If you finalized any new decisions last month – which require you to step out of your comfort zone into something new – this resolve can carry you through the chaos of the upcoming eclipses. STAY RESOLVED and you will do just fine.
You can flow with change because life is encouraging you to make adjustments until you land on just the right thing.
In fact, with major planetary shifts this week, along with Venus trine Pluto… something might come your way that you always loved but didn’t realize it!
It’s a very good idea to stay open to something new and allow the ground to shift beneath your feet. This may not be an easy task for grounded earth or fixed signs….
If necessary, it’s okay to grieve loss of the old. But you may find that you were ready for change anyway.
Let Change Happen
Life changes (which began around the time of the Aries New Moon) speed up during the month of May. These are beneficial shifts happening and overall, it’s a smooth-flowing month.
ENERGIES LIGHTEN UP this month, as planets transition into Gemini.
But resistance to change can create unnecessary stress, anxiety, or panic for some people.
There’s no need to fret if you stay in flow with life’s natural, beautiful change of seasons. It may not be easy, but there are plenty of benefits if you can relax and allow organic change to take place in your life.
Growing tension from this year’s Saturn Uranus square may feel like WANTING changebut RESISTING change at the same time.
You can utilize this vital energy pattern by doing the usual operations but in a new, inspired, more authentic way. Aslo, take change SLOW in order to avoid harsh reality checks along the way.
With major planets aspecting Neptune throughout the month, watch for tendencies of escapism. If you deny the need (and desire) for change, or try to ignore changes occurring… resistance can result in missed opportunities or missing out on favorable events.
Mercury retrograde at the end of the month can play out in mental anguish or frustration concerning plans and contracts or those aforementioned reality checks due to escaping with “coping mechanisms” or delusions of fantasy.
Generally, it’s best to have contracts finalized before May 20, then stay low key until Mercury is direct around the end of June. If anxiety is an issue, consider committing to a strenuous daily workout or daily work routine, and/ora serious meditation practice.
Overall, it’s a good idea to stay clear and focused, but also relaxed. Allow life to shift and life will work out just fine. If you can stay in the game (instead of checking out) and go with the flow, you’ll be glad you did!
