It’s an excellent day to question your actions or improve your usual routine. Something in your life is trying to shift or maybe it’s time for an upgrade.
Change is neither good nor bad…. Change simply happens. Life is always brilliantly in flux, which keeps our existential experience interesting and worthwhile. All you have to do is flow with life’s organic change of seasons in order to experience the natural bliss of life.
As Mercury slows down to retrograde and closes in on a square to Neptune, you might feel mentally flustered or confused, or just lost in the clouds…. This may result in collective chaos, especially as it concerns contracts or communicating.
Running back to securities of the past – such as a childhood home, friends, family, or tradition – cannot pacify fears of the unknown.
Standing firm on your inner foundation, you can allow life to take all the twists and turns it wants. If you can stay true to your values and make life changes accordingly, you can even enjoy the ride.

It’s a great week to clean out the closet or release the old to make room for the new.
As long as you’re in a state of flow, allowing change to happen, new inspiration can come to you – especially in the areas of communications, contracts, or personal economics.
For people with repressed individual ideas and emotions – or if you’re resisting change – this could be a very anxious week. To mitigate anxiety, consider a meditation practice that allows you to ‘let it all go‘ and allow life to happen.
Avoid talking too much – especially about celebrity gossip or rambling about your life dream – as empty chatter can distract you from buried thoughts or feelings in need of attention – and only creates more anxiety. Also watch for trying to bond with old securities, especially childhood friends, therapists, family, or home life once the Moon is in Cancer. It’s the time for beautiful change.
Allow something beautifulto show up in your life ORGANICALLY, even if you aren’t quite ready for it.
If you can let the old life drift away, accept the new, and stay focused on self-expression through a creative project… it can be a fun, exciting week.
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 roadblocks/obstacles will disperse early July.
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!
