Astrology weather for Thursday, May 24
Mercury moves into Gemini today which usually means more e-mail and text messages, as well as more conversations and ideas floating around. You may also have a bit more contact with siblings, neighbors and co-workers you usually just nod to in the hall. If you have planets in early degrees of Gemini, the effect will be stronger for you (have your astrology chart done if you haven’t already!)
Mercury and the Sun meet in Gemini
Some of the extra chit-chat may be a bit confused, indecisive or ambivalent however, since the Sun and Neptune are still forming a tense angle (square) to each other. Mercury is moving a conjunction with the Sun, so it will share this same frictional angle with the watery planet of confusion, which means the vagueness, is likely to continue over the weekend. On a more positive side, when Mercury and the Sun meet up in Gemini, they will also be forming a very helpful angle (sextile) with Uranus in Aries so there could be unexpected bonuses to this weekend in the form of creative new approaches to problems.
The fact that the Moon will be in Leo Saturday and Sunday will increase the festive feeling of the holiday weekend (if you live in the US, where Memorial Day is celebrated the last weekend in May). On Monday, the Moon will move into detail-oriented Virgo, giving impetus to either the start of the work week or cleaning up after the long weekend. Use that Virgo Moon attitude of carefulness in choosing your words and actions as the start of next week also includes a failure to connect kind of angle (inconjunct also known as a quincunx) between the Sun and Pluto, meaning hidden agendas may lurk around the office corridors.
The Moon is a waxing crescent today, slowing growing from last weekend’s New Moon toward the June 4 Sagittarius Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse. What New Moon intentions are you growing now which may show their first sprouts by the Full Moon?
Summer solstice approaching
In addition to the monthly cycles of the Moon, astrology also looks at the year in terms of the Earth’s revolution around the Sun. In a little less than a month, we will reach the summer solstice, the longest day of the year (in the northern hemisphere). How will you celebrate this holiday?
