Weekly Cosmic Tides – Astrology for the 21st – 27th May 2012

Monday 21st May
Moon in Gemini, Mercury conjunct asteroid Sedna. Normally the Moon in Gemini will enliven conversation and hurry along all kinds of connections and communication but with Mercury conjunct Sedna, it may feel like the cat has got your tongue. Winging it today won’t work. Only the facts will do. Be aware of snake oil salesmen and those who flatter in an effort to persuade you to do something against your better judgement. The best way to use this influence is to stick with what you know and leave the rest until you have more information.

Tuesday 22nd May
Mercury conjunct Jupiter on the Sabian symbol “A Spanish Gallant Serenades His Beloved” Express yourself! It’s a day to catch up on correspondence from letters to novels. The mood is expansive, compassionate and inclusive. If ever there was a day to think big, this is it! Let yourself be wooed by a vision of a future you can currently only dream of. Once you have a clear image in your mind, take one small step towards it – today! This conjunction takes place in Taurus, the sign of manifestation. Whether you want to learn a new language or build an empire, it takes a clear and positive frame of mind and practical steps to make it happen. Mercury is the go-between between the Gods and humankind; let him carry your message to the heavens. Jupiter gives you self-belief. Go for it!

Wednesday 23rd May
Sun square Neptune – after yesterday’s cosmic push in the right direction, this aspect may leave you doubting whether you have made the right decision. Try not to second guess yourself or anyone else for there lies the path to madness! Stick to what you know to be true and allow the rest to unfold. If you don’t know where you stand with someone, stand still until the fog clears.

Thursday 24th May
Mercury enters Gemini triggering the solar eclipse degree. What’s on your mind? You may be easily distracted by conversations around you, emails, phone calls. News items catch your attention. When Mercury enters Gemini it’s time to test what you know and resolve to learn what you don’t. Sign up for a course of study. Read a book on a topic you are curious about. Questions carry you to a place of discovery and revelation.

“The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvellous structure of reality.”
Albert Einstein

Friday 25th May
Mercury square Neptune – Mercury is a busy bee this week but today he may be caught short by the square to Neptune. You may find it difficult to pin someone down or get an answer that you need. Messages get lost in the ether leaving you confused. Misunderstandings can occur. Conversations may wander and never get to the point. Try not to sign on the dotted line unless you are absolutely sure of the fine print.
Use this challenging energy to its best by setting some time aside to daydream. Answers are felt more than thought. Simple unrestrained journaling may provide insight, as will quiet contemplation or meditation.

Saturday 26th May
Moon in Leo – “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.” Aristotle

Sunday 27th May
Sun conjunct Mercury, Mercury sextile Uranus. Watch for opportunities or information that arrives out of the blue! Be ready to make your move. Today favours lightening decisions and fast resolutions. Don’t be afraid to suggest out of the box solutions to old dilemmas. You may surprise yourself as well as others. Stay flexible and you can’t go wrong.
