A Busy Time in the Starry Heavens

“When wolves perceive pleasure or danger,  they first become utterly still…statues, utterly focused so they can hear, so they can sense what is there in its most elemental form.” Clarissa Pinkola Estes.

“All summations have a beginning, all effect has a story, all kindness begins with the sown seed. Thought buds towards radiance.” Mary Oliver

There’s considerable planetary activity coming up. The Sun is now in  Mercury’s sign of Gemini and retrograde Mercury is preparing to leave the sign of Gemini and enter the late degrees of Taurus on Monday 5/23. With the Sun in Gemini, it’s wise to remain open to new ideas and to be willing to be adaptable.

Under the influence of Mercury retrograde, it bodes well to make an effort to communicate clearly as there can often be scrambled signals and mixed messages which can leave confusion or sometimes, misunderstanding in their wake.

Mercury is forming a favorable alignment with Pluto now   – indicating a time of heightened intuition and nonverbal communication.

Mars will move into the fiery sign of Aries this week and conjunct Jupiter indicating a time of increased self confidence, courage  and optimism. Venus will also move into her ruling sign of Taurus making this a more harmonious time.

The New Moon is May 29/30 conjunct Jupiter. This can bring a sense of renewal, expansion, pleasure and optimism.

One of the Sabian Symbols for this time is,” A glass bottomed boat reveals undersea wonders.”
