Astrology Forecast and Horoscopes for May 31, 2021 – June 6, 2021

The astrology forecast for the week of May 31, 2021, features an energetically calmer week until we get to the weekend when all hell breaks loose.

So, make sure you enjoy the good vibes while they last!

Let’s dive in…

Astro Hot Spots:

Mercury Rx in Gemini / Mercury square Neptune

Just a reminder, Mercury turned retrograde on Saturday in a close applying square to Neptune in Pisces.  Throughout the week, communication will continue to break down until the exact conjunction on Saturday, June 5.   Expect misunderstandings, brain fog, and problems seeing the truth to be the significant themes throughout the week.  Also, as usual, during Mercury retrograde – avoid signing documents, making major decisions, and expect electronic devices to break down.

To learn more about the full impact of Mercury retrograde, you can read my article: Mercury Rx in Gemini 2021.

Venus in Cancer / Venus trine Jupiter

On Wednesday, Venus leaves social Gemini and enters Cancer.  In the sign of the crab, you will find that Venus is much more sentimental, affectionate and needs to feel like she belongs to someone.  You will be more sensitive to the actions and reactions of those you care about, especially family members and romantic interests. When Venus is in Cancer, I suggest that people stay at home and find activities that will help them create deeper bonds and lasting memories.  Venus remains in Cancer until June 27.

Immediately following Venus’ ingress into Cancer (Thursday), Venus will form a beneficial trine to Jupiter in Pisces. Venus trine Jupiter is a favorable aspect, and emotional situations that are currently experiencing difficulties may get some relief.  Your feelings towards others will improve, and you will have an increased need to connect with those you care for.  Additionally, this is a great time to repair any damage to relationships and get them moving in the right direction once again.

Venus trine Jupiter is also great for business meetings, negotiations, and all financial matters.  Just keep in mind that Mercury is retrograde before finalizing decisions.

Sun trine Saturn

Most of the time, when you hear an astrologer say the planet Saturn, you will listen to moans and groans that reflect the other person’s displeasure. Let me be frank – Saturn can be a difficult planet, especially when he is conjoined, squared, or opposed to another planet.  Just look at the cosmic tsunami unleashed in 2020 when Saturn conjoined a filled basket of inhabitants in Capricorn. However, the sextile and trines tend to bring out the ‘ringed one’ positive side.

On Thursday, the Sun forms a trine to Saturn in Aquarius, and this aspect tends to stabilize our lives. This doesn’t mean that problems will magically go away; instead, our outlook will be more balanced, and we are willing to put forth the effort to make things happen. Oh, and of course, we will be more disciplined.

Thursday and Friday are great days to accomplish something or complete a task.  Work and career-related matters should flow easily, and you may receive acknowledgment for your hard work. Just make sure that you get what you need finished by the weekend because the energies are pretty intense.

Mars opposes Pluto

Of all the planetary aspects, I find Mars oppose Pluto one of the most difficult to manage because we are more reactive when we are in situations that are difficult to control.  To make matters worse, the “nasties” (meaning nasty people) tend to crawl out of their caves and are in ‘full on’ attack mode.

You may find yourself at odds with others, especially if you feel controlled and manipulated. In its most extreme mode, Mars oppose Pluto can be violent, so avoid situations where conflict may occur. Mars opposes Pluto on Saturday afternoon.

Sign Breakdowns

Aries

You may need to make a concerted effort to keep a watch on your tongue as Mercury retrogrades in your solar 3rd house. Projects that involve discipline and the cooperation of others should flow smoothly midweek. Possible quarrels with family members may occur this weekend. Try to control your reaction to others, especially those on a powertrip.

Taurus

Mercury retrogrades through your solar 2nd house, and it’s time to put your financial affairs in order. This week is an excellent time to review banking information, due bills, and balance your checkbook to get to the bottom line.  Towards the middle of the week, you may receive recognition for a job well done. However, keep your opinions to yourself this weekend to avoid unnecessary conflicts.

Gemini

Geminis, you are in the hot seat this retrograde cycle because Mercury is moving through your sign. You may need to take an honest look at your life and make course corrections if required. Towards the middle of the week, career opportunities will allow you to shine.  However, this weekend, ghosts from the past may burst out of the closet, leaving you anxious and overwhelmed.

Cancer

This week Mercury retrograde moves through your solar 12th house, and it’s time to put the final nail in the coffin on unresolved situations.  You may find people that you have prior beef with resurfacing like a pack of hell hounds.  The good news is that once you resolve these issues, they will likely disappear once and for all.  This weekend avoid unnecessary relationship conflicts.

Leo

Mercury retrograde is going to wreak havoc in your solar 11th house of friends and associates.  You may spend the retrograde cycle dealing with a gossip or trouble maker forcing you to clear toxic people from your crew.  Reviewing your investments or overall fiscal picture may be a theme midweek. This weekend problematic people may try to affect your vibe. Ignore them if possible.

Virgo

Career-related issues will be your primary theme throughout the Mercury retrograde cycle.  You may feel that no matter how much effort you muster, it’s never enough to accomplish your goals.  You may receive some relief when a supportive friend rescues you with some advice and a dose of tender loving care.  Avoid arguments this weekend, especially with children or young people.

Libra

Mercury retrograde in your solar 9th house means that you need to check and recheck travel plans to ensure your trips go smoothly. Avoid unnecessary headaches by practicing due diligence. On Thursday, Venus moves into your solar 10th house and shines a spotlight on your career. Positive opportunities occur when you least expect them.  This weekend, stay on guard; someone may attempt to hurt your reputation. Nip it in the bud as quickly as possible.

Scorpio

Mercury retrograde moves through your debt-oriented solar 8th house.  You may need to take a close look at your finances and prepare for unexpected expenses.  Emotional conflicts may smooth over later in the week as the Sun trines Saturn.  But, this weekend, avoid arguments over opinions or political matters because it’s not worth the potential long-term damage.

Sagittarius

Relationship issues may be a problem during this Mercury retrograde cycle, mainly if past grievances or imbalance exists. You may have difficulties seeing your partners clearly, and it would be a wise decision to listen before you speak.  Close friends may be a source of support and security that you can rely on. This weekend, avoid places where conflict is likely to occur because it may put an avoidable dent in your wallet.

Capricorn

Work-related matters, schedules, and deadlines may be an unavoidable canker sore this Mercury retrograde season.  You may experience moments when you feel like you are getting the run around from those you depend on, forcing you to take on more than you can handle. Unexpected financial wins could occur midweek. Relationship conflicts may erupt when you least expect them over the weekend.

Aquarius

People from the past may resurface, leaving you both anxious and intrigued. Although you may initially like the attention, remember there is a reason you put them in the rearview mirror in the first place.  You may get an opportunity to have some fun towards the middle of the week, so take advantage of invites from others that may feed your social soul. Job-related issues may be a source of conflict this weekend.

Pisces

You may have problems with appliances or electronic devices as Mercury retrogrades through your solar 4th house.  These pesky annoyances could leave you rattled and anxious. The good news is that a knight (or lady) in shining armor may arrive when you need them the most, midweek.  This weekend, stay on guard; conflicts and arguments may irrevocably damage your friendships. Avoid argumentative people.

Astrology Forecast and Horoscopes for the Week of May 24, 2021 – May 30, 2021

This week’s astrology forecast packs a massive wallop, so get ready; it’s going to be a rollercoaster of a ride that begins on Wednesday and continues through the rest of the week.

Astro Hot Spots

We have three hot spots to focus on this week.  I will give the Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius its own post so watch for that to drop early in the week.  But we also have Venus forming a tense square to Neptune and Mercury retrograde in Gemini on Saturday.

Venus in Gemini square Neptune in Pisces:

Venus-Neptune contacts are complicated.  Moreover, the squares and the oppositions are challenging to deal with and can be emotionally troubling if they strongly impact your chart.  Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces take extra care this week because your charts will likely be triggered. 

Venus square Neptune is about idealization. We all have a particular vision of how we expect relationships to work based on where Venus is in our birth charts. Venus-Neptune is a time when we are invested in our romantic dreams, and we may have a higher level of expectation because we seek fulfillment through our partners. We expect a lot out of those we care about, and ultimately, we become disappointed when our partners do not live up to the ‘perfect ideal.’  Since this aspect will influence all of us this week, our unrealistic expectations in relationships will become evident.

If you experience problems in your relationships, you may need to look at whether your expectations are too high.  Did you quit allowing your partners to be human and instead are looking for them to fix you, or are you seeking something from them that you should be seeking within yourself? If you have, you may need to accept your partners for who they are rather than what you would like them to be. Otherwise, this aspect can be tricky and can lead to hurt feelings and possible breakups. Contrarily, you may be in a situation where someone expects more out of you than you can humanely deliver. This tension can lead to frustration and feelings of inadequacy.  Relationships that end this week may be challenging to handle, so take extra care of yourself if this happens.

Mercury Rx in Gemini:

Finally, on Saturday, Mercury turns retrograde in his sign of Gemini.  Gemini is the sign that governs communication, business transactions, trade, and travel. You can expect typical issues that occur during Mercury retrograde to be amplified.

Mercury Rx Dirty Dozen! Tips and Tricks to Wrangling the Trickster God

  1. Make sure you go over anything contractual thoroughly.  Make sure all the i’s are dotted and all the t’s are crossed. If you can get away with it, wait until after the retrograde is over (June 22) to sign on the dotted line. 
  2. Avoid starting anything new.  New projects tend to have communication problems and mishaps when initiated during this process.
  3. Put a watch on your tongue.  (If it is not worth saying, don’t say it)
  4. Check your vehicles for any potential problems.  Before Mercury goes retrograde is the best time for a service call.
  5. Avoid buying real estate or renting apartments.  Usually, this means you are just going to move again during a future Mercury Rx.
  6. Using mail delivery services that offer tracking and insurance – especially now since the Post Office has still not recovered from the pandemic.
  7. Check, recheck, and check again any travel plans you have or appointments that are on the books.
  8. If you do travel, don’t take anything of importance or value. Only bring items that you do not care if they are lost or stolen.
  9. Expect people from the past to resurface.  However, once they do crawl out of whatever cavern they came from, proceed with caution.
  10. Back up all electronic devices.
  11. Avoid buying an automobile. 
  12. Mercury Rx is an excellent time to scour places (online and offline) for great deals!

Whew, that is some list!

The good news is that we can use Mercury Rx as a powerful tool.  Since Mercury is moving backward, we are moving over familiar territory. We have been here before, and we can use this backward motion as a review process that gives us the ability to ‘redo’ (Mercury Rx loves words that start with ‘re’) choices and decisions we have already made. Also, the truth always surfaces during a Mercury Rx. Expect new information to emerge that may have led to a wrong decision in the past.

Sign Breakdowns:

Aries:

This week begins with the Moon in Scorpio in your solar 8th house. Unresolved issues from the past may resurface, leaving you feeling less confident than usual.  Communication issues with friends or siblings may occur midweek. Plans that you have made for the weekend may go awry with Mercury reversing course.  Check and recheck all plans, especially those that are travel-related.

Taurus:

Relationship issues may be a prominent feature at the beginning of the week with the turbulent Scorpio Moon moving through your solar 7th house. Avoid financial investments that involve your friends midweek because they could lead to disappointment. Unresolved financial matters may resurface at the week’s end when Mercury turns retrograde.

Gemini:

Work-related activities may be complicated this week by people with a dubious agenda. Avoid overcommunicating with people you don’t trust because it could lead to negative consequences. At the week’s end, you may receive information that leads you to question your path. A course correction may be necessary, but get all the facts before you proceed.

Cancer:

Romantic encounters may be a significant feature at the beginning of the week, with the Moon moving through your passionate solar 5th house. Towards the middle of the week, please pay close attention to your dreams because they may give you answers to problems that have been troubling you.  Be as clear and precise as possible in all communications this weekend because Mercury turns retrograde in your solar 12th house, and you will be easily misunderstood.

Leo:

You may get an urge to decorate or make modifications to your home at the beginning of the week with the Moon moving through your solar 4th house. Avoid developing a romantic interest with a friend or colleague this week because you may end up disappointed, or you could permanently damage your relationship. This weekend someone from the past may resurface when Mercury turns retrograde.

Virgo:

At the beginning of the week, you will have a strong urge to communicate and share ideas with your social circle with the Moon moving through your solar 3rd house.  Towards the middle of the week, expect problems in your relationships if you are focused solely on your career. Speaking of your career, Mercury reverses direction in your solar 10th house this weekend, leaving you uncertain about the future.

Libra:

Pay close attention to your spending at the beginning of the week. As the Moon moves through your solar 2nd house and tangles with Saturn and Uranus, unexpected expenses are likely to occur.  In the middle of the week, day-to-day events may challenge your beliefs about life. Be open to alternative viewpoints.  This weekend, as Mercury turns retrograde in your solar 9th house, travel plans may be upended.

Scorpio:

Relationships are going to be your primary focus throughout the week.  Disagreements may lead to feelings of insecurity about the future. Avoid holding on to grievances and allow your partners the space to resolve their issues. As Mercury reverses course in your solar 8th house, past problems may resurface.  Deal with them compassionately.

Sagittarius:

Problems may surface at the beginning of the week as the Moon in Scorpio moves through your solar 12th house. Avoid overreacting to your difficulties or acting too hastily because you could make matters worse. Relationship unhappiness may lead you to do some soul-searching,  and this will be a continuous theme over the next three weeks as Mercury retrogrades in your relationship sector.

Capricorn:

Tensions may occur at the beginning of the week, leading to you choosing to be either part of the crowd or your own person. You may be confused by the motivate of others, and this could strain your relationships. Mercury turns retrograde later in the week in your solar 6th house.  Make sure you stay on top of your schedule, or mishaps may occur.

Aquarius:

Your career and home life may be at war this week, leaving you emotionally depleted. Some rest may be in order so that you get a break from the day-to-day grind. Make sure that your romantic life is on solid ground before you take it to the next level. Over the weekend, Mercury retrograde in your solar 5th house could lead to difficulties involving a child.  You may need to set solid boundaries.

Pisces:

Communication problems with others may occur at the beginning of the week with someone in your social circle. Be as precise as possible when communicating with others, or they may misunderstand your true motivations. You may feel that your family is putting unrealistic expectations on you towards the middle of the week.  Mercury reverses course this weekend in your solar 4th house, and past family issues may resurface that threaten to steal your joy.

Astrology Forecast and Horoscopes for Week of May 17, 2021 – May 23, 2021

Astrology Forecast and Horoscopes for Week of May 17, 2021 – May 23, 2021

Astrology Forecast:

This week’s astrology forecast has the Sun moving into airy Gemini. Gemini is the season of the social butterfly, so our focus shifts from the physical world of money, individual values, and resources to social activities, ideas, and mingling with others. While the Sun is in the sign of the twins, expect insightful conversations, the sharing of ideas and concepts, and the need to learn new things that keep the mind stimulated and refreshed. Since Gemini has to do with the mind, the thing to be cautious of is mental constructs that may limit and curtail personal growth. Stay focused on the positive and the future, rather than ruminating on the past.

Saturn Retrograde:

In other astrological news, Saturn turns retrograde in Aquarius. Saturn is the planet of responsibility and discipline. He reflects what we do when we are ‘adulting’ — you know, that minor issue of taking care of business.  Saturn also reflects the planetary parental overlord that governs us, teaches us lessons, and rewards us for a job well done.

In astrology, when a planet is retrograde, it weakens the planets ability to function efficiently. In transformational astrology, retrograde planets operate on the inner level rather than experienced in the outer world. So, essentially, Saturn turning retrograde reflects a four-and-a-half-month period where we need to look at our lives and discover what needs structure and discipline. Often this is painfully obvious, because ‘daddy’ Saturn doesn’t step in and restrict us as usual, but instead lets us fall on our face so that we can discover ways in which we can learn lessons the hard way. Furthermore, it’s probably best when problems occur we handle them when they arise, because they become progressively more challenging if we ignore them.

Mercury square Neptune:

Finally, on Saturday, Mercury forms a challenging square to Neptune in Pisces. Mercury square Neptune is a highly confusing aspect.  You need to be cautious of what you say, and be as clear and concise as possible.  If an opportunity seems too good to be true, then it probably is. Check and recheck everything before making a firm decision.

Ordinarily, Mercury square Neptune only affects us for a few days, but with Mercury’s retrograde motion that begins next week, this aspect will be in orb for a while. Proceed with caution!

Now, on with the weekly horoscopes…

Sign Breakdowns:

Aries

This week, the Sun, Mercury, and Venus move through your solar 3rd house, giving you plenty to talk about and a need to share ideas and information with others. Opportunities to learn something new that helps you achieve your goals may occur midweek. However, this weekend pay close attention to what people say; someone may not be telling the truth.

Taurus

This week, the Sun moves into your solar second house, and you couldn’t be happier because your mind will be on your favorite subject – money!  Conversations about improving your financial standing may occur midweek when Venus trines Saturn in your solar 10th house.  However, avoid signing contracts or becoming overly obligated until after Mercury turns direct in the middle of June.

Gemini

At long last, it’s your season and time to shine, so spread those social butterfly wings and fly.  This week, conversations with others will help you understand yourself on a deeper level.  Also, new opportunities may be presented towards the end of the week that help you level up.  Stay focused on your goals!

Cancer

Conserve your energy this week because the Sun is moving into your solar 12th house, leaving you feeling burnt out and exhausted. Try to get as much rest as possible to recharge your batteries, so you have an ample amount of energy to use when needed. Resolution of unresolved financial matters may need to be your focus at the end of the week before they become too stressful to manage.

Leo

The week begins with a focus on work-related matters. Opportunities to take your career to the next level will come through friends and associates that see your true potential.  Avoid getting involved with other people’s financial issues because their situation may not be as bad as they portray it to be.  You may need to say no when pressured.

Virgo

People that do not understand your grand vision may question your motives, especially in career-related matters.  The good news is that despite the Negative Nancy’s barking at your workplace, positive financial news will arrive midweek that puts your self-doubts to rest.  There may be a wolf in sheep’s clothing around you; try to root out the culprit as quickly as possible.

Libra

This week begins with a beneficial aspect between the Sun and Pluto that helps you release the emotional traumas you have experienced in your life. Releasing the past allows you to concentrate your efforts on expanding your belief system and acquiring a more positive outlook on life.  Later this week, your creative talents may prove lucrative, so take advantage of opportunities while the irons are hot.

Scorpio

This week begins a month-long process of inner change and transformation as the Sun moves into your solar 8th house.  Difficulties in relationships have a better than average chance of being resolved, because you and your partner have enough emotional feelings for one another to face the underlying issues. Single Scorpios, be careful of investing heavily in people who are only in your life for a season.

Sagittarius

You may need to escape the real world this week and focus on what makes you happy and brings you joy. Relationships will be a conduit that inspires new ideas that get your creative juices flowing once again. Towards the end of the week, avoid signing contracts or legal documents with Mercury in your 7th house, squaring deceptive Neptune.

Capricorn

Although you may want to focus on issues that matter to you, daily annoyances and problematic people may threaten to knock you off your game. Projects you have invested in may not work out as expected, leaving you feeling emotionally depleted. Since the Sun is now moving through your solar 6th house, take extra care of your body and make choices that benefit your well-being.

Aquarius

This week, the Sun begins its month-long trek through your solar 5th house, bringing out your need to connect with others and have some fun. It’s a great time to take a step back from the daily grind and take some me-time to become conscious of your current goals and what you are currently seeking in life. However, try to avoid overspending, because your decision-making might not be the best with Mercury squaring Neptune in your financial second house.

Pisces

This week, the Sun moves through your solar 4th house, putting family matters in the proverbial hot seat.  Issues from the past may resurface that need resolution once and for all.  Getting in touch with your deeper feelings about life will positively impact your personal growth and career matters. This coming weekend, avoid shady people.

See you next week!
