Excess may end in regret today with an anaretic Venus Jupiter square. Or you can transcend the entire cycle of giving and receiving by simply enjoying what you do.

Either way, it’s a good idea to be conscious of your spending and generosity. Watch for smothering through overindulgence as it can create distrust by manipulating someone into loving you.

If you find yourself caught in the smothering trap, it’s best to be more reserved or default to genuine kindness and respect.

A flaw may look worse than it really is today. Or perhaps you just want everything to be better. It’s an excellent day to improve something in your life.

With an Aries Moon, defensive aggressiveness may be a sign of ignored stress or buried fears. Find a trusted person or safe space to express your honest thoughts and feelings in order to feel better.

If you’re making a bold move or new life change, there may be traits you like about your new choice, as well as aspects you don’t like. This is the time to AVOID DISTRACTIONS, maintain your faith and keep going. Nothing is perfect but imperfections make life beautiful and deeply fulfilling.

This evening’s Venus in Gemini wants you to relax and don’t be so disciplined, allowing thoughts to be more adaptable or flexible. That can work great for more enjoyable social interactions, but also lead to later regret. You may be drawn to an intellectual attraction but don’t be fooled. Look for genuine character.


Stay Flexible To Move Forward

May 3 – May 9, 2021

  • Monday, May 3: Mercury square Jupiter, Sun square Saturn, Mercury in Gemini, Last Quarter Moon in Aquarius
  • Tuesday, May 4: No Major Aspects
  • Wednesday, May 5: Jupiter anaretic until May 13
  • Thursday, May 6: Venus trine Pluto Rx
  • Friday, May 7: Mercury out of bounds
  • Saturday, May 8: Venus square Jupiter, Venus in Gemini, Ceres in Taurus
  • Sunday, May 9: No Major Aspects

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 change but 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/or a 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!
