Gemini (5/21 - 6/21)
This month, the influence of both Venus and Mercury retrograde will dissipate, supporting new steps forward. By mid-month, the “shadow” effects of both of these retrograde cycles will end, and with the New Moon in your sign on the 20th, you’ll be poised for new beginnings! Mercury will station direct on May 3rd, but wait until after May 17th to initiate new action as we’ll still feel the influence of the “shadow” phase of this phenomenon until then.
On May 15th, Mercury will move into Taurus and your 12th house of subconscious and spirituality. The second part of the month will be an excellent time for self-reflection and connecting with your Higher Power. Use this opportunity to explore and develop your ideas carefully. Next month you’re likely to move into action quickly.
On May 10th, the North Node will end a journey through Virgo that began November 12th, 2015. The Lunar Nodes represent the points where the orbit of the moon crosses the ecliptic (the Sun’s path in the sky from our perspective on Earth). The North Node is the zodiacal point where the Moon crosses the ecliptic on its way North and the sign it’s in sets overarching themes for our planet. While the North Node was in Virgo, the prevailing energies supported constructive participation, following through with commitments, establishing clear boundaries, and physical wellbeing. Because the Lunar Nodes move backwards through the zodiac, the North Node will ingress into Leo on May 10th.
After this date, the emphasis will shift from productivity to creative expression. The North Node in Leo, Uranus in Aries, and Saturn in Sagittarius will form a Grand Trine in the fire signs this month that will last from mid-May until October. This energy can help Geminis to connect with people who can assist with advancing their goals. The next few months will be an especially powerful time for networking!
The Fire Grand Trine will be activating your 11th house of friendship and community, your 3rd house of home and family, and your 7th house of partnership. This energy will propel you to do what comes naturally to most Geminis—connect with other people! While you are more skilled than most Sun signs at working with others, this can be a valuable time period to hone your people skills. You could find yourself in unexpected situations that require you to practice the art of negotiation. Don’t shy away from those who have different backgrounds and opinions. You’re likely to learn the most from them during this time.
On May 10th, the Scorpio Full Moon will highlight your 6th house of daily work and health. Use the power of this Full Moon to gain clarity in the workplace. You’ll have the ability to understand your co-workers’ motivations and clear the air regarding any misunderstandings. Avoid taking an overly suspicious stance until you have all the facts. It can also be a useful time to get a check up and investigate any mysterious physical symptoms you may be experiencing.
On May 20th, the Sun will ingress into your sign, signifying your personal Astrological New Year. On May 25th, the New Moon in Gemini will provide support for your personal goals over the next Moon cycle and the coming year. Consider what you’d like to attract as well as what you’d like to release. It will be wonderful timing to recalibrate yourself and invite peaceful energies into your life.
