Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you are all enjoying the long bank holiday weekend in the UK. We actually got some good weather for a change too! Our first week of may started with a gentle energy. This second week is going to change that though as things pick up the pace. We have the Moon in Aquarius today, which is a great energy for doing activities with new people we are just getting to know. Its a nice vibe for enjoying the bank holiday weekend, so get out and try something new if you can. Now, let’s see what this new week has in store for us.


Monday starts us off with a square between Mercury and Pluto, which challenges how we think and communicate. Square aspects usually bring challenges or obstacles that we need to overcome. Mercury Square Pluto is no exception here and we need to be cautious with this transit with impulsive and obsessive interaction between quick to speak Mercury and burn your bridges Pluto. Try to avoid the assumption that you and someone else are on the same page right now and make sure to be clear with them. We also have a square between Venus and Neptune today, which makes it a not so good time to have relationships discussions or discussions about finances. Feeling disillusioned, disappointed, alone or depressed can come with this transit. However, try to keep in mind that this may just be a passing phase and not a more serious crisis at this time.


Tuesday brings us an opposition between the Sun and Jupiter, giving us a larger perspective on who we are. Under its influence, we might fall victim to wasting opportunities, time, or resources. Generally, this transit is a “feel-good” transit where we are likely to be feeling quite powerful and optimistic. The problem with the transit is that we may also over-reach as a result of these inflated feelings of importance. The desire for something “bigger and better” could take hold now, but try to avoid throwing practical considerations out the window!


Wednesday begins with an early morning Void of Course Moon that quickly moves into mystical Pisces. A Pisces Moon can bring about feelings of romance, heightened intuition, mystical and dreamy moods, and an interest in the unknown, religion and all that is magical. We tend to become softer, sentimental and more tender, speaking words of kindness and complimenting those we love. We also tend to have this deeper understanding of the hidden meaning of life, events and things, as well as a more intimate perception of beauty, art, poetry and music. It’s a good time for long soaks in the tub, being near the ocean or other water bodies, watching or doing theatre, taking in a film festival, meditation or spirit-based retreat, being solitary, any imaginative project, and tending to those in crisis or lost.


Thursday is a quiet one in the skies, aside from the continuing Pisces Moon vibe in play. Friday brings us a mid-morning Void of Course Moon that will last until the early afternoon. It then moves into fiery Aries. Some of you may actually feel this shift more than others. An Aries Moon tends to bring conflict more than most times, with emotional tensions growing, people becoming short-tempered and impulsive. We want to free ourselves from everything that bothers us and makes our lives feel uneasy. An Aries Moon can bring emotional vitality and the drive to act on our feelings. With the Moon in Aries, we’re motivated by a strong desire to start fresh. We get this gut instinct to start something new, as well as the motivation to do so. Our pioneering impulses are strong as well under this influence, and we tend to feel more energetic, spontaneous, and enthusiastic. Its a good energy for dreaming big, soul search for your passions, quick actions that yield immediate results, undertakings that involve the self and the personality, self-assertion, taking on challenges, and beginning short-term projects. Just keep in mind that the staying power with Aries can be lacking. Adding to this energy is a harmonious trine between the Sun and Pluto, which brings us the perfect opportunity to let go of something, someone or some behaviour or belief that no longer serves us. Whether you’re clearing out your closet or flushing out your brain, this transit is the time for getting rid of whatever has become unnecessary or outworn in our lives.



Saturday brings a challenging square between Mercury and Mars, a transit that is characterized by hot debates, fiery speech and lots of arguments. We may experience this in forms of conflict or we may find these exchanges as challenging yet stimulating. We just need to remember to pace all of that mental energy. We also find our brains want to get going on our “to do” lists, however, our body has other ideas and feels like it just can’t keep up. But this energy gets easier as the day goes on.


Sunday is the day that Mercury moves into a new sign, earthy Taurus. When Mercury is in Taurus, our thinking is down to earth, solid, and grounded. Our mental awareness and attitude can be a bit conservative and serious during this transit, or more relaxed, down to earth and grounded in life’s simple pleasures. This is a good time for planning out how we want to manifest the ideas that sprang up from our imagination over the past few weeks. Now is the time to take our best ideas, words and perceptions and sow them like seeds, then step back and watch them grow over time. We also have Mercury in a conjunction with Uranus today, which brings about spontaneous, radical, and unusual means of thinking and communicating. It’s a good energy for gatherings which can include community, family, friends and groups. Later this evening the Moon will very briefly go Void of Course and then joins Mercury in Taurus. When the Moon moves into Taurus, we feel the tension of the past few days start to drop away. People tend to become calmer and peaceful. We feel secure and stable. There is also this tendency for our thoughts and reactions to slow down, making us feel a bit slow in getting ourselves going. This is the best time for taking care of the home, running errands, restocking supplies and tending to routine maintenance. Its best to hold off on important business now, as well as the signing of contracts or important papers, because we may make mistakes due to a slowed down reaction and thinking process. Other things we can do under this energy are giving and receiving messages, baking and cooking, singing or dancing, gardening, building structures, considering steps of a plan, experimenting with home aromatherapy, stretching (especially the neck), try new fruits, concoctions, cocktails and dishes, make pottery or sculpture, indulging some sound therapy.
