As if we didn’t already have a lot of retrograde energy with Saturn having just turned retrograde, this week we have two more retrogrades - Venus and Jupiter. This move will have us all re-thinking our approaches to achieving our goals and how we prioritize our actions to get there.
Be careful to avoid heated discussions and sarcasm at Mercury squares Mars on Monday. Things should get a bit lighter on Tuesday as Mercury makes a big move into Gemini, so get ready for a lot more thoughtful conversations.
Mars might have us feeling a bit dreamy with no boundaries as it shifts into the sign of Pisces on Tuesday which is a theme this week because Saturn is in retrograde and Saturn is all about boundaries.
Finally, on Sunday, the Sun will be in trine aspect to Jupiter which is really positive, expansive energy, but be careful as Jupiter is retrograde so take care not to over-inflate, over-promise or exaggerate.
So, let’s rise above the chaos that surrounds us all right now by diving into this week’s Astro Weather update...
On Monday, May 11th, our messenger moves into Gemini. Normally, Mercury (the planet of strong communicative energy and lightning speed thinking) would be right at home when it enters Gemini since it rules the talkative twins.
However, with Mars (the planet of war, sex, and aggression) squaring Mercury this week, these conversations could end up being a little more heated than we were really expecting.
When we take into consideration the circumstances that are happening all around us, it’s more important than ever to observe this energy before it just hits you.
By taking the time to really understand how a conversation could quickly boil over so much faster than it normally would with this transit, you can take the necessary precautions.
Right now, it’s crucial to monitor what you take in mentally, emotionally, and energetically from the people around you.
These heated conversations could affect your energy more than you realize, tumbling over into your work life, passions, and motivation in life.
Even if you’re the one feeling all of this verbally aggressive energy, it’s critical to remember that what you say now could follow you (and your loved ones) much further than that isolated conversation.
Navigate this with grace by taking the space you need to clarify your thoughts before reaching out to have conversations with friends and family that could be remotely heated. Trust me!
On Tuesday, May 12th, Mars shifts into Pisces with dreamy, loving energy coming into play.
The upcoming Venus retrograde on Wednesday might leave our relationship lives turned upside down, forcing us to reassess who we really hold close to us. This could include friends, family, and significant others.
And with Mars in Pisces at the beginning of the week, it’s important to not try to escape those thoughts and feelings that arise with Venus in Retrograde.
As aloof and friendly as our Piscean friends can be, this energy can also draw us to living in an illusion in which the retrograde is trying so hard for us to see through.
If you’re not dealing with any particular relationships that need to be reevaluated, this could be the perfect time to tap into the Piscean dream state.
What do you imagine your ideal relationships being like?
If you’re involved romantically, can your lovey dreams bring your relationship to its next level? Don’t limit yourself - let your mind wander and use your imagination!
On Wednesday, May 13th, Venus starts her backward dance through Gemini. Usually staying in the house brings up those cuddly feelings (even though we all might be tired of being at home right now!
Most can agree that the love vibes are higher than normal, most couples connecting on a much deeper level during this pandemic. Movie nights, cuddles, and all the like!
This sounds like a lovely time to make connections that could last a lifetime, but with Venus entering retrograde, I urge the collective to proceed with caution.
Gemini rules communication and has a very airy, flowy vibration that carries it.
Have you ever seen a Gemini sit still for more than 10 minutes? I didn’t think so.
Imagine this energetic flow in the field of romance. This could be a good thing if you’re single and ready to mingle, but if you’re in a committed relationship this time could be trying of your relationship.
Retrogrades are a time to REassess, REorganize, REvisit, and REpair whatever planet’s energy that is experiencing the transit.
When we speak of Venus, the planet of love, money, abundance, and beauty, you may experience situations that cause you to REevaluate these energies. This could be especially true when it comes to your relationships.
It’s okay to be wary of this retrograde, but you can find peace in knowing that the divine connections that are in alignment with both parties' highest selves will make it through this romantic aloofness. Trust divine timing, divine connections, and all of the actions that take place during this retrograde because you will be able to see which connections can hold true longevity in your life.
Also, if you were planning on doing a self-care routine overhaul, hold off until Venus is no longer in retrograde. There will be fewer mix-ups! Again, trust me!
On Thursday, May 15th, Jupiter joins our retrograde party. Whenever we talk about Jupiter, we speak of the amazing, expanding abundant energy that it usually brings along.
However, when Jupiter is in retrograde, we again have to REassess what really brings us that abundant energy? Do you feel the current of abundance and expansion slowing down a bit?
If so, don’t fret because retrogrades don’t last forever! In fact, this is the perfect time to revisit where you are expanding, and if this is really the place that you want to devote your time to. If not, how can you pivot?
This is an amazing time to reevaluate what is working for you and what isn’t. This is the perfect opportunity to start building towards what you would like to receive an overflow of abundance in and from. When Jupiter exits the retrograde energy, what do you really want to receive?
Again, taking a higher cosmic view of the overall energies can help you really measure what is valuable to you and what you truly desire.
