Wednesday 16th May
Mars trine Pluto – If you have a big project to tackle, today is the day! All fired up, raring to go, gunning for the target. These two are part of a current Grand Trine with Mercury. It’s not enough to talk about it, it’s time to take action. On a warning note, trines can also hasten energy making it difficult to control. If you are feeling angry, do your best to walk away before things get ugly.

Thursday 17th May
Mars opposite Chiron – Your hackles are up, you’re feeling a bit touchy. Who rattled your cage? Mars and Chiron remind you of your Achilles heel – the weak spot which sometimes seems to have a big red button labelled ‘push me‘. The truth is that often others aren’t aware of this and/or they are acting from their own woundedness. Today is about finding the courage to tend to anything that is festering inside and to embrace those parts of you that you define as ‘weaknessness’. You may find they turn out to be a strengths.

Friday 18th May

Sunday 20th May
Solar Eclipse in Gemini on the Sabian Symbol “A Glass-Bottomed Boat Reveals Undersea Wonders“. This powerful lunation offers an opportunity to see what lies beneath. Your mind is beautiful, in all its complexities and puzzles, in its confusion and in its clarity. Make a note of any unconscious thoughts bubbling up to the surface. It may be a slip of the tongue, a sudden image, a long forgotten memory, a dream, a song constantly replaying in your head. Try not to judge it good or bad, let it be. You are a vast being made up of millions of moments in time, experience, history, other lives, soul travels. Take a moment to listen to you.
