Stargazing—Week of April 27th through May 3rd, 2020

Apr 27, 2020 | Monthly Astrology|Stargazing

Mercury starts the energy moving this week on Monday, April 27th as it moves into Taurus. This shift is sure to slow things down a bit as it focuses on communication and practical matters for most of the month. If you have something to say, or negotiate a contract this week, the roughest day is Tuesday, because that’s when Mercury squares Saturn in Aquarius, bringing in negative or silent communications which can lead to misunderstandings. Also, the Sun aligns with Uranus and that is the kind of energy that jolts you awake. Write down any brilliant ideas now, because they will be gone before you know it. Bring your ideas down to earth to manifest and they will help you produce in tangible ways.

Actually, there is a lot of mental Mercury energy all week, so expect lots of talk and chatter. As usual, don’t believe everything you hear. Mercury challenges Saturn, which can manifests either as a tired feeling, or as a need to get grounded in your ideas and communications. If you have something important to discuss or communicate, it’s best to wait until Thursday, April 30th.

Mercury aligns with innovative Uranus to end the month. This can bring some shocking and scandalous news to the forefront. The energy continues to support new ideas, entrepreneurial spirit, and willingness to step out of your comfort zone and try something new. This is your chance to get super-creative and inspired and to say the right thing – at the right time – in the right way.

On Friday, May 1st brings us an important day in ancient tradition, May Day. It marks the half-way point between the Spring Equinox and Summer Solstice.  Over the weekend Venus, still in Gemini, is getting ready to slow down and turn retrograde mid-month.


May brings a time to review your love and money, among other things. Esoterically, Venus in Gemini has a lot to do with healing, which seems timely due to the virus.  Things may begin to level off and calm down as we begin to carefully return to normal life, whatever that is for us. Stay healthy and stay safe.
