STARGAZING  Week of May 11th to May 17th, 2015


This week focuses on meditation, artistic activities and helping others. Mercury in Gemini has moved into its storm as it prepares to retrograde on May 18th. It is difficult to say if this retrograde time will be difficult or smooth for you. It will oppose Saturn in Sag. early on, which can bring you either Lady Luck or a crisis to go through and solve.

On Wednesday, Mars moves into Gemini until June 24th. If ever there was a multi-tasking, too many irons in the fire combination, this is it, especially the three days it will align with Mercury. (May 24th  27th) Mars opposing Saturn can be an extremely irritating transit, requiring great patience and strength as well as a willingness to keep yourself in the background for awhile. Also, your relationships with others may not be as satisfying at this time. (More on this next week) Luckily theres a balance with the Sun moving through Taurus, bringing in an earthy strength.

Create projects that are short and quick so that you can easily move from one to the next. Deep research and focused intent are difficult now as the mind moves like a hummingbird and has a problem holding still. Remember that Mercury is going retrograde, so rushed projects now will need repair or redoing later. Keep projects moving, but dont force them. Also watch out for other drivers, and make sure to get exact directions before you leave the house because the GPS could either not work or give incorrect information.

Thursday and Friday require physical movement to release any pent-up frustrations. Hit the gym, go for a hike, dance, or do yoga. Just move that body! A bit of physical exhaustion helps late Thursday evening and early Friday morning when your overactive mind keeps you awake and restless. Friday hits an unexpected stumbling block, creating a lot of break lights, because no matter what forces you exert, you wont be able to get anything going, without a lot of stopping, starting, and waiting for the red light to change.
