May 11 through May 17, 2020
We'll have a busy week as the planets play musical chairs, including two planets changing signs and two going retrograde! The fun starts on Monday when Mercury moves into Gemini, the sign it is most at home in. This will accelerate thinking, expand our social lives and have us surfing the information highway for the next few weeks. On Tuesday Mars will move into Pisces and Venus will turn retrograde. Mars in Pisces can make for difficult movement as the planet of action wades through this watery sign, which could prove challenging as it stays in Pisces until the end of June. Keeping a focus on spiritual and inner movement is the best way to handle this aspect. Venus goes retrograde approximately every 18 months and will backtrack in the sign of Gemini until the 25th of June. This creates a cycle where we can connect with people from our past, resolve old relationship issues and gather our thoughts and lives into a collective representation, making it a great time to create photo albums, clear our music and document caches off the computer and maybe even pull out those old vinyl records to replay songs from the past. But the show isn't over yet! Jupiter turns retrograde on Thursday, where it will remain until mid-September. Jupiter retrograde creates the catalyst for revising and reviewing our values, our finances and any habits that keep us from being our truest soulful selves.
