April 25 through May 1, 2022
The major event in the heavens this week occurs on Saturday when the Taurus New Moon/solar eclipse sets the stage for a shift in focus, energy and direction over the next six months. This is the first of two eclipses in as many weeks, the next one occurring on May 16th. As we examine our lives for the next two weeks, we'll be better prepared to make changes once the second eclipse occurs in May. With an ethereal Pisces Moon overhead Monday and Tuesday, we should avoid making any hard and fast decisions, as information is cloudy and doubts tend to hold us back. That's not a bad thing, it's just the Universe protecting us from moving in the wrong direction! Clarity returns on Wednesday as the Moon charges into Aries and doubts fade away. We'll be inspired to take action and more action, especially when Mercury moves into Gemini and Pluto turns retrograde on Friday. Gemini is one of two signs Mercury rules (Virgo being the other one) and so our thoughts and mental prowess will pick up full power under this influence! Our thoughts may pop up faster than we can speak them as new ideas and inspirations bubble to the surface for the next few weeks. Pluto's shift to retrograde motion may be almost indiscernible, as it's more a generational influencer than a personal planet. However, as it retrogrades for the next five months, we may see improvements in global concerns, such as climate change.
