As Venus descends into the darkness, you too may find yourself in a place of withdrawal and contemplation. Out of all the planetary retrogrades, Venus is often the most internal and problematic, especially in the domain of relationships and authentic wants. While retrograde, Venus can bring a deep awareness about how much you are trading off your own happiness for the sake of someone else’s.
The beginning of a new lunar month is always a time for exciting possibilities. The last few days prior to a New Moon is an ideal time to rest, contemplate and reflect. It’s like the cosmos’ own rhythmic goal setting cycle, all playing out in the heavens.
Taurus also likes its creature comforts. This is an ideal time to actually enjoy and appreciate what you have around you. Bring out those things that are your ‘special occasion’ items. It may be an expensive perfume, the fancy dinner plates or the outfit you’ve never worn.
When it comes to swimming, whether you’re the type of person who likes to elegantly dive in, tip toe and feel your way through the water or just bomb dive in, most people will attest the feeling of being refreshed, re-invigorated and renewed. It’s almost like you’re metaphorically washing something away- your thoughts, your fears, your problems, or maybe you simply like that fresh feeling on your skin.
Under this New Moon, make a promise to connect with those special people in your life that boost your spirits and make you buzz with energy. We all have that one friend that doesn’t matter how much time passes between speaking, you always pick up from where you left off, just like it was yesterday.
After the brilliant meeting of the Moon and Jupiter over the weekend, this week is relatively quite aspect wise. Four planets still in retrograde, coupled with Jupiter stuck at 13 degrees for the rest of May, this is the last week to enjoy a slow and steady pace as the planetary party begins to shift into the sign of Gemini.
The Mercury Cazimi window is still wide open. This represents the point in Mercury’s cycle where we can expect the greatest momentum in matter’s relating to Mercury-communication, writing, speaking and our ability to connect and network with those around us.
