After one hell of a busy month, the month of May closes, and June begins with a striking slowdown in the cosmos. This week we have no major planetary aspects, but we do have a New Moon in Gemini, Mercury turning direct, and Saturn turning retrograde in Aquarius.
Let’s dive right in…
This week the biggest newsmaker is the New Moon in Gemini that occurs on Memorial Day. This is the first lunation is six weeks where its beneficial to do intention or magical work. Since the Moon makes favorable aspects, it’s the perfect time to set goals, long-term objectives, and pursue your agenda.
Gemini is an air sign, so this is an auspicious time to do communication magic, including reopening the lines of communication with those whom you have lost touch. Spells can include written petitions, feathers, smoke, and incantations. Also, Gemini is great for business and commerce magic. Just keep in mind that Mercury is retrograde until June 3rd. Hold off on signing documents or legal agreements until then.

Before I get into the astrology for Monday, let’s take a moment to thank those that have served in the military to protect us and our personal freedoms. Thank you for your service! Today, we have a New Moon in Gemini. This is great for gatherings, and the overall energy for the day is positive. If you need to open the lines of communication with someone to clean up your side of the street, make amends, or discuss something sensitive, it’s a great day to do so.

The Moon continues to move through Gemini and forms a befuddling square to Neptune. Communication snafus are likely, and you may have difficulties expressing yourself to others. Try to avoid making major decisions, especially if they are emotionally based. The good news is that the Moon will then trine stable Saturn, and the fog should lift, and clearer minds will prevail.

The Moon moves through Cancer during the morning hours and aspects Jupiter and Venus. If you need to get things done, take advantage of the beneficial energy of both benefics because later in the day the Moon squares Mars and tensions will likely rise. Avoid negativistic people and try not to react to other people’s actions.

The Moon makes a favorable aspect to Uranus. It’s an excellent day to surround yourself with people that excite and inspire you. If your life has been too monotonous, do something different that piques your curiosities. If you want to make changes to your home or redecorate, now is the perfect time to add new décor and enliven your surroundings. Just make sure you wait until tomorrow if you want to purchase something major.

At long last, Mercury turns direct in Taurus. It’s the perfect day to process the information that you have learned over the past three weeks and make the changes in your life that will make it more fulfilling. Communication will slowly improve, and you can begin to make decisions and choices, but do so mindfully because Mercury remains in shadow until June 19th.

As one planet goes direct, another goes retrograde. Today, Saturn turns retrograde in Aquarius. This is a four-month cycle of reflecting on your position in the world, and whether your career needs are currently being met. While Saturn is retrograde, doing the right thing (often not the popular thing) and putting forth the necessary effort leads to long-term rewards.

We close the week with the Moon moving through Leo forming difficult aspects to Saturn and Mercury. You may go through feelings of self-doubt and loneliness, and your interactions with others may be tense. Push away negative thoughts if they surface and remember that tomorrow is another day.
See you next week!
