"If you think the movement of the planets doesn't have an affect on you, think about this. Just as one small pebble tossed into a pond creates a ripple effect in the stillness of the water, so does the movement of the heavenly bodies affect us. The movement of the planets or heavenly bodies affects our actions, moods, and our thoughts just as the movement of the small pebble tossed into the pond affects the inhabitants living within the pond." ~ Miss Dee.
Here's what's happening in our amazing solar system this month.
* Special note: Mercury goes Retrograde on May 10, 2022. It turns Direct on June 3, 2022. If you are unfamiliar with the Mercury Retrograde cycle, these two articles, Beggs n' Econ and Bumbled Articulation, will explain what Mercury Retrograde creates in a person's life and what needs to be learned.
Sun in Taurus...
The sun is in Taurus, a good natured, methodical sign that likes to finish what he/she has started, is the sign of the gardener and builder, and is the sign that is continuously adding wisdom, knowledge, and experiences to his/her soul resources bank account.
This is the perfect time to plan, sketch, remodel, expand, build, and plant the garden up to May 10th and then, you will more than likely find yourself changing your mind about the project at hand.
To refresh your memory, a Mercury Retrograde cycle is when the planet Mercury appears to move backward in its orbit, which creates decision-making difficult and communication in general a chore.
Mercury doesn't really shift and go in reverse. It only appears to move backward or slow down because one or more of the other planets, in their own orbit, races past Mercury. During a Mercury Retrograde cycle, we have trouble communicating, as I stated. This includes getting our point across, remembering what was said, and listening with full attention.
And these things create misunderstandings. And because misunderstandings are so prevalent during this approximate three-week period and because decision-making is difficult (and sometimes the decision is the wrong choice), it is to your advantage to avoid making major purchases, signing contracts, making commitments, and out of the ordinary shopping excursions, such as, an outing to buy a new wardrobe or a car, during a Mercury Retrograde cycle.
And during a Mercury Retrograde cycle, we temporarily misplace items, start a list and then throw it away only to start it again, or forget where we were at in a project. All the above as well as misunderstandings and schedule changes create short tempers, irritability, and general nervousness.
But it's not all bad news during a Mercury Retrograde cycle, there are advantages, blessings that we may not see until after Mercury goes Direct, June 3rd this cycle. #1 As we become introverted, we search our hearts and minds for the sabotaging habits and thoughts we need to release in order to move forward. #2 We rethink or relive an experience and next come upon the truth of it, which conquers anxiety, fear or amisconception. #3 We review a goal and our plan to accomplish it. This review usually brings to mind different or additional steps we need to take in order for our goal to reach its fruition. #4 We often finish a project that, for one reason or another, we have not been able to.
In addition to a Mercury Retrograde cycle, there are the other planets in your chart to consider and by now you might be asking, what does the sun in Capricorn, Aries, Taurus or any other sign have to do with me? You and everyone else have the Sun, Jupiter, Mercury, Mars, Venus, and all the other planets moving or transiting around the outside of your natal chart, which creates a temporary refocus of attention, thought, and/or energy in different areas of your life.
For example, if Pisces is your second house of money, you may be tempted to give one paycheck per month to a friend in need and use the other paycheck on the necessities of life. Another example, if Aries is your sixth house of health, you may have more headaches or hit your head more often than most people. The temporary refocusing of your energy or attention is what the sun or another planet moving around the outside of your natal chart has to do with you!
More personally speaking, here's what you can look forward to this month.
Aries: before May 10th, plan on spending some of your money on you! A new wardrobe or a few additional key pieces to expand the wardrobe you have, a new hairstyle, and even some new shoes are on your want list. Take a trusted friend with you and don't buy the first thing you see or try on. Remember the saying, "clothes make the man," and buy accordingly. If need be, continue shopping after June 3rd. In June, set a few new goals for yourself, goals of a more humanistic nature, such as, helping in a community garden.
Taurus: ruled by Venus, the goddess of love, beauty, and things of value, you cannot help but attract or draw to you the love, appreciation, money, situations, things, and the people you value and deem necessary to have in your life. Trust in the Universe to guide you to the fulfillment of the goals you desire. The neck, a Taurean's health concern, embodies a trust issue. From May 10th though the end of the month, sit back and let things be.
Gemini: this is the month and the time to appreciate and celebrate your friendships and also welcome new people into your circle. This is also the month to reexamine your personal goals then, in June, make changes and/or new plans concerning how to achieve your aspirations. You are likely to burn the candle at both ends this month: prioritize eating healthy, taking some catnaps or sleeping in, and bowing out on participating in some activities. Release the old ideas of self that no longer serve you.
Cancer: this month, sit back and take your hands off of the things you want to accomplish. Avoid picturing the way you think these things should come to you. Instead, and very importantly, keep your heart open and on what you want the final result to be. Your friends are loyal and cheer you on in your efforts. Stop churning up negative experiences from the past. This habit only results in an upset stomach.
Leo: let the dust settle on those areas of your life that have recently undergone change and look lovingly to the future. Change has been necessary for your forward movement. Cleaning and fine-tuning your connection with spirit is the best gift you can give you. Use your personal energy wisely as you make plans then create a more comfortable and loving abode. Be attentive to how you move, lift, and/or bend this month. The back, a Leonine's health concern, indicates a flexibility issue.
Virgo: before May 10th is the perfect time to plan and then remodel or repair those small and/or unkempt rooms in your home or to a place you consider a home. Be open to changes to your plans as there just might be an easier and more efficient way to get the job done. Showering your one-on-one relationship may seem a bit too time consuming but will certainly be appreciated by the receiver. Spend time engaged with your creative endeavors as they feed your soul.
Libra: after May 10th, your daily communication begins to take on a more serious or matter-of-fact tone. Spice it up with kindness! Your lover, spouse, and/or children are responding to the Universe's higher energy of movement and love which, may not be easy for you to understand: listen with your heart. A daily walk would be beneficial for you and those in your household.
Scorpio: you are an inspiration to other people and some of them have told you so! While you continue to magnetize to you what you desire, include self-love. Honest self-love is extremely attractive and a pleasure to be around. Extend love and kindness into your daily communication, which may be difficult during this Mercury Retrograde cycle. Count to 10 before you speak. Stay connected to your spirit and follow its instructions.
Sagittarius: daily communication, usually a breeze, may become confusing and/or vague for your listener. Watch the listener's face and then reword your sentence, if necessary. You may want to indulge your loved ones with some long-overdue gifts. Be aware that over-spending is a strong possibility! Be present when you are walking, lifting, and/or bending to help keep your hips and thighs from being injured.
Capricorn: daily communication will be more positive and your suggestions taken better by the one you are communicating with if you soften your tone and lace your communication with sensitivity. When it comes to the changes and/or the endings transpiring in your life, remember that they are beneficial and are helping you to move forward in life. Your home environment reflects your state of mind. After undergoing so many changes, a coat of paint, new drapes, and/or the furniture rearranged might be refreshing.
Aquarius: the first impression you give to someone may not be what you want it to be! You may seem vague, insincere or even "too lofty." While you are responding to the humanitarian energy that resides within you, not everyone understands you or your train of thought. By the latter part of the month, you may find yourself less communicative than usual but the things you say will be valuable and doable. When it comes to your free time, include some word games as well as one or two types of pleasurable exercise.
Pisces: this month, spend more quality time with you! Finish projects, clean out closets and drawers, and do a double check of your finances. You may find yourself more chatty than usual: watch the listener's expression to see if you have told them the same story before. It may be more advantageous to put your stories into a book. A brisk daily walk would be beneficial for you. Wear supportive, protective shoes 24/7.
