Wednesday, May 27 — With four planets retrograde (not Mercury, yet) and three planets in Gemini, you can expect frustration. Things are just not moving forward smoothly. Gemini people are needing fewer restrictions — and so are the rest of us — but it’s not yet proven to be “safe”— we’re still in the “I don’t know” phase. Between 1 and 3 p.m., the Moon in Leo will be nicely aspecting the Sun in Gemini. This is a busy, active, sociable phase. From 3:30 until 5:30 p.m. the Moon is in an awkward aspect with Uranus in Taurus, bringing about sudden conflicts that produce plenty of tension. From 6:30 until 8:30 p.m., the Moon in Leo forms a challening aspect with Mars in Pisces — nothing seems to work out well.

Thursday, May 28 — Mercury enters into Cancer until August 4. Mercury will be turning retrograde on June 18; I thought you’d want to know that. It’s good to plan ahead and make sure you’ve taken care of machinery, vehicles and communications that need your attention before Mercury “turns.” In an ideal world, the best time for socializing is when the Moon and Venus are in a good aspect to each other. This takes place from 7:30 until 9:30 a.m. When was the last time you went out to breakfast with a friend? I can’t recall when that was. Confusion sets in from 1:30 until 3:30 p.m. while the Moon is in a frustrating aspect with Neptune. You may want to — or rather, need to — take a nap! Mercury is now in an awkward aspect with Saturn until Friday night. You’ll swear and email me, asking “isn’t Mercury retrograde now?” Nope, not yet. Your mind feels like it’s retrograde. It just isn’t functioning as well as usual.

Friday, May 29 — Conversations are playful from 7:30 until 9:30 a.m. while the Moon, now in Virgo, is nicely aspecting Mercury in Cancer. Mercury is still in an awkward aspect with Saturn, creating frustration with timing and getting in touch with those you need to speak with, due to unwanted delays. This ends at midnight. From 8:30 until 10:30 p.m. there will be too many negative thoughts percolating because the Moon in Virgo, known for being highly critical, will be in a challenging aspect with Saturn. Your feelings are easily hurt. From 8:30 until 10:30 p.m. the Moon is in a positive aspect with Uranus. Flashes of genius come through if your mind is empty of thoughts and beliefs that would block the intuitive flashes trying to enter your mind. Avoid paying attention to critical thoughts during this phase and you will find a gift coming to your mind from your higher mind, where intuition activates your brilliance.

Saturday, May 30 — Chiron, known as a “planetoid” (asteroid/planet), is in a favorable aspect with Uranus, the planet of sudden shifts in consciousness. Wounded healers come out and speak and share their stories. I’m thinking of the amazing individuals who sponsor those in need in the anonymous 12-step programs and also those who have survived domestic abuse, incest, or rape and are brave enough to share their experiences of recovery. “The wounded healers” are also true therapists, in my mind, because they know what it’s like and can hear painful stories without flinching. Chiron is known as the “wounded healer.” There are individuals from war-torn countries who have suffered and share their personal stories; in doing so, they may gain some degree of therapeutic relief, having found words to speak of unimaginable terror. When we hear them, these stories bring up our own memories from other lives/past lives —which all of us have — that we need to heal. We have plenty of time now to attend to these topics so our collective healing can take place. For me, some movies have brought up past life memories to be healed and released. Have you ever had an intense emotional reaction to a scene in a movie?

Sunday, May 31 — Chiron remains in a favorable healing aspect with Uranus until July 9. It will be activated again in January 2021. From 3:15 until 5:15 a.m., if you are “lucky” enough to wake up during this phase you could receive incredible wisdom and insight. This is because the Moon will be in a positive aspect with Jupiter. From 11:20 a.m. until 1:20 p.m. the Moon in Libra will be in a positive aspect with Saturn, favoring self-discipline and concentration on one thing at a time. You ought to be feeling calm, with regular breathing slowing your mind.

Monday, June 1 — The Sun and Venus are close together (conjunct) until Saturday; however, they are in a challenging aspect with Mars in Pisces. Domestic violence is out of control now with the necessity for isolation. What to do? How can we help? This aspect remains until Saturday. Perhaps anonymous letters will appear, which might help agencies/friends/family figure out what to do for those trapped in terrible situations, which often include children. This is almost too sad to type, yet must be shouted out so we can figure out how to help. There will be a Lunar Eclipse (Full Moon) on Friday, June 5 — which may bring this terrible circumstance to the forefront. I hope so. Tonight, from 7 until 9 p.m., an addiction activation takes place while the Moon in Libra makes a challenging aspect to Neptune. I bring this up because often those who abuse others (male or female) are slaves to their addictions and are in need help themselves. Of course, it’s hard to feel sorry for them.

Tuesday, June 2 — The Moon, now in Scorpio, will be in a challenging aspect with Saturn from 12:40 until 2:40 p.m. This indicates feeling sorry for oneself. This is a trap — don’t fall into it for more than 15 minutes, otherwise it will be hard to get out, at least for awhile. The Sun and Venus remain in a challenging (to put it mildly) aspect with Mars in Pisces; there’s suffering taking place. Prayers are needed! Relationships end. There are some that need to end, yet can’t due to the coronavirus situation and the financial struggles it has brought to all of us. Maybe there is money set aside to help those who need to leave their abuser and find a safe place for now — I hope so. Ideas pop into mind from 8:40 until 10:40 p.m. while the Moon is in a fine aspect with Mercury — perhaps while reading the newspaper or a magazine?
