For the week of May 25th thru June 1st, be sure to read your Rising Sign as well:
Pay attention to the Full Moon on Tuesday. It may not bring a major event, but even if it does, it’s more about tuning you in and shifting your perspective. Issues surrounding your beliefs, your politics, your spiritual commitments, are all coming to the foreground for your examination, as to what is working and what is not. With Mars currently traveling in Aquarius, you are being opened up to a larger, more collective experience, which can prove to be very motivating. Take that energy to turn you in the direction that you need to, while being mindful as to what is sustainable in the long term, and what is not, in order to avoid burning yourself out like a flame in the wind. As a result, certain associations will be reevaluated over the months ahead, as you figure out which avenues are bringing you in the direction that you need to go.
Now that Uranus has entered your sign, can you just feel the energy rising? Uranus is the planet of change, and as it moves through your sign over the next 7 years, you may indeed find yourself in a very different place than where you are now. On Tuesday there is a Full Moon, and what this is trying to illuminate are the areas in your life that are most deserving of change and transformation. This Moon is not only showing you the ways that these are being sorted out, but is also addressing, first and foremost, the inner psychological changes that will prepare you for the larger changes to come. In the mean time, a Venus/Saturn opposition this weekend has you reconsidering issues surrounding self-worth and priorities. If you need to make any important decisions, you might want to wait until later in the week, when your general disposition will be more hopeful and optimistic.
This is an important Full Moon for Gemini, particularly for those born between the 27th and 31st of May, or who have 5-11º of Gemini Rising. Relationships in particular are likely to be invested with emotion right now, and it could be through your partner, or a close friend or advisor that you are being given the opportunity to see things in a different light. In this way, this Moon could be quite enlightening. The same day as the Full Moon, your ruling planet, Mercury comes home to Gemini, bringing you back out into the world. So, whatever is illuminated on this day gets you rocking and rolling again. What does Mercury in its own sign bring? Conversations, road trips, starting something new, feeling more engaged, being more active, and sharing what you know with others. Allow your ingenuity, and your restless curiosity to guide you through the week. The pace will pick up by next Thursday.
The Full Moon on Tuesday is not just inspiring, it also means business for Cancers. Maybe you find resolution with a health issue, or maybe you are thinking about some sort of change at work, or resolving a project that you’ve been working on. Something could come to a welcome conclusion, allowing you to then place your attention on what you would consider to be loftier aspirations. A larger Vision for the future is emerging, and a part of you might be quite anxious to get it started. Don’t be discouraged if you are going to have to wait. Meanwhile, even though the week may start on a low tone (perhaps not being able to connect with those people or things that you want and/or need?), once you get passed the Full Moon the world seems to open up. It will already feel as if a whole new world is emerging.
The Sun is energetic and active in the sign of Gemini this week, and could indeed bring reservoirs of energy and inspiration towards the fulfillment of your goals and aspirations. However, go carefully, for there could be the danger of taking on more than you bargained for. All of that initiative and energy will be difficult to sustain in July and August, so think twice before taking on long-term commitments that could prove to be regrettable later on. However, what this energy is good for are activities that promote strengthening, healing and well-being. And it is also trying to tune you into what your true heart’s goals and aspirations are. Pay attention to relationships, both personal and with any groups that you are involved with. Love in all its glory is trying to rear its head in the light of this Moon. Love, and what it means to have more freedom to enjoy your life. All the more reason not to be taking on any more major responsibilities than you already have. You need space for the good stuff.
Something can finally come to its grateful conclusion with the Full Moon on Tuesday. This will either have you heaving a sigh of great relief for a job well done, or wistfully plotting your next big project. Allow yourself to bask in the limelight (you deserve this!); but also recognize when enough is enough, and that if you just keep on going and going, you’ll eventually burn yourself out. That being said, take advantage of the energy now, while you still have it. But plan on allowing yourself to step back if need be in the months ahead. You will need to conserve your energy for later on, and expending all your energy too soon, will just leave you exhausted in the long run. On the same day of the Full Moon, your ruling planet Mercury moves into multi-tasking but clever Gemini. It’s time to confer with the powers that be about where you want to go from here.
Even though the week begins somewhat plaintively, it will improve vastly as the days move on. It may be that you are feeling something of a disconnect from others, or feeling a little down. Realize that this is only temporary, and soon to be remedied. Even by the Full Moon on Tuesday you’ll be feeling more spunky. Maybe too spunky, as you could also become overwhelmed with too much activity, too many things to do, too much information. It will be hard for you to decide or discriminate what you will most want to focus on. Because it could feel like you are being pulled in so many directions, pay attention to what is right in front of you at the moment, and let the rest be for now. You can only be in so many places at once. Do allow what you learn to inspire you to new creative heights, but don’t allow it to overwhelm you. A new and grander vision for the future is gradually unfolding.
A trine between Jupiter in the sign of Scorpio and Neptune in sublime Pisces will be exact on the 25th. Jupiter on its own is enough to open your eyes to greater possibilities. So it is just even more so when tied to idealistic Neptune. Even with just Jupiter alone traveling in your sign, you are being asked to open your eyes to a larger vision. All the more so, when tied to idealistic Neptune. Jupiter can also expand feelings and emotions as it travels here. And with a Full Moon on Tuesday, it could feel as if you are wearing your heart on your sleeve. One thing that may be addressed in the light of this Moon is how well you value yourself, and what you do. Don’t be afraid to let people know what you have accomplished and what you have to offer. You could serve as an inspiration and beacon light for others. Pay attention to the signs and messages you are receiving this week. Someone could serve as a catalyst to get you on the path that you need to be.
The Full Moon in Sagittarius is important for all Sagittarians, but will be particularly so for those born between November 28th and December 3rd, or who have 5-11º of Sagittarius Rising. All the more so with Sagittarius-ruler, Jupiter perfecting a trine with Neptune just days before the Full Moon. With this trine you are being asked to consider the question of what a more meaningful life might look like for you. And whether you feel that you are on the path that you need to be, in order to get there. The key here is to connect with what feels right, rather than what you think you are supposed to do. If you are feeling at all conflicted, clarity could come at this time, as all of the right elements seem to come together in just the right way. Allow your heart to grow 3 sizes next week as you get ready to share your good will with others.
This weekend could feel a little stressed for some this weekend, making it difficult to connect with others. It may be that you are just a little tired, or you are too concerned with more serious things to take notice. Or perhaps you are longing for what once was. But if you were to stop and reflect you might just recognize that this conflict need not be. And that there is a whole world of experience, with and without others, that is emerging. What you can expect from the Full Moon on Tuesday: perhaps a revelation about the past; or something that was hidden comes to light; or you finally realize that some things just need to be put away, in order to see the potential that is right in front of you. There could be a bit of celebration the end of next week… make room for it! In this case it is wise and prudent to put some things aside in order to make room for and take part in the festivities and good will to come.
Mars will be in Aquarius for an extended period of time. It is the planet of energy, motivation and action. Therefore it is currently investing you with a surge of energized enthusiasm and courage to take on all comers. Which could all come to a peak around the Full Moon on the 29th. Just be aware that Mars will station retrograde the end of June, pulling back on that energy, which could conversely feel draining, if you continue to push yourself. Do take on, and finish up projects that you’ve begun, but also make sure that it will be sustainable. Strategize and prioritize your time. Even so, a big vision could be illuminated in the light of the Moon this week. And even if you may not be able to fulfill that vision right away, the inspiration on its own could end up carrying you over the next few months.
“Curiouser and curiouser!” cried Alice “now I’m opening out like the largest telescope that ever was! Good-by feet!” (Alice in Wonderland) The co-ruling planets of Pisces (Jupiter and Neptune) are exactly trine on Friday, opening you up, just like a telescope, to a larger vision for the future. Even if you are not that sure what it looks like yet, the Full Moon on the 29th is trying to connect you with this new emerging vision. What does a path worth living look like for you? Do you want more meaning, more passion, more creativity or altruism? You may not be able to act on it right away, but in some significant way your attention is being either reconfirmed or redirected. Any plans for something fun, recreational or celebratory will go well as we approach the end of the week, therefore surround yourself with those people and things that make your heart sing with joy.
