May 18th to 24th, 2015: Mercury retrograde in Gemini, New Moon in Taurus

Monday: Mercury retrograde, New Moon

There's a push forward and a pull gently back, at once, as Taurus New Moon arrives on the day Mercury becomes retrograde for three weeks. There are a couple of ways to go about things. One is to begin something you can adapt or adjust later.  Taurus is a sign that leans toward committing fully, however during this New Moon, begin gently, tip toe in, or put something off until mid June if you can wait.  Whatever you do, avoid deciding under pressure or forcing anything that isn't happening organically.  New Moon is 12:13 am ET, Mercury retrograde begins at 9:49 pm ET. The Moon shifts to Gemini at 5:27 am. Mars and Saturn are active with the Moon, also having opposing influences. Today is all over the place! Stay centered and use flexible thinking. Today's color is white.

Tuesday: Gemini Moon

Gemini Moon meets retrograde Mercury. Effects include revisiting old business, rethinking plans, and reconnecting with those you've been out of touch with. Some of that may take you by surprise. Jupiter is in harmony with the Moon, influencing our ability to create and be expressive. Announcements will be made. Some may be reversed in the not so distant future. Take things lightly if possible. Be skeptical. The Moon is void of course at 1:57 pm ET until 9:56 am Wednesday. It's a good social time and not very focused generally. Take care of transportation plans and needs. Get the car checked out and don't neglect simple things that need to be done. Today's color is yellow. 

Wednesday: Cancer Moon

This is a good day to nurture others and also take good care of yourself. The tendency is for energy level to be lower. Get rest or get outside. Shift sluggishness with easy exercise. Try not to force things. Care for plants, animals, people, and home. Prepare and enjoy good food. Think simple. Today's color is light blue.

Thursday: Sun in Gemini

The Moon is in Cancer, void of course from 8:36 pm to 5:42 pm on Friday (ET). Sun moves to Gemini at 5:45 am for the final phase of spring. The planet most influential is Venus, opposing Pluto and meeting the Moon in Cancer. Venus represents beauty, harmony, love and togetherness. Cancer is favored, and Capricorn receives the benefit in long term love and partnerships. Pisces, this relates to love, luck and also your children. Venus opposite Pluto may reveal another side to someone you know very well already. For Pisces and Virgo, friendship could turn to love now.  Pluto may also show the shadow side of a partner. Whatever is happening this week, go about it gently and don't rush.  Today's color is pink.

Friday: Void of Course Moon

The Void of Course Moon and Mercury retrograde indicate that slowing things down, putting off actions that can be taken in a few weeks instead, and keeping calm is the way to go. Routine work and tasks are the order of the day.  The Sun is opposite Saturn and this could become argumentative or pressure filled.  If you've agreeing to something, can you leave a loophole, set an end date to a trial period, or agree to revisit before making it permanent? Leo Moon arrives at 5:42 pm ET and makes for s fun evening out. Celebrations and reunions are nicely timed this weekend. Today's color is purple. 

Saturday: Leo Moon

The Moon is in harmony with Mars and retrograde Mercury. Old friends get back together. Adventure to places you've enjoyed in the past.  Parties and events involve long time collaborators or acquaintances as well as people you were once closer to.  It's a great day or night for festivities. Today's color is gold.

Sunday: Void of Course Moon

Void Moon starts at 6:50 am ET and is in Leo. The Virgo Moon arrives Monday at 4:52 am. Today is lucky, with the Moon meeting Jupiter, and meant to be relaxed with no important business during void of course Moon and Mercury retrograde, both. Surprising changes or news is likely with Uranus in harmony with the Moon. The wild card is the reaction these announcements or events evoke. Today's color is red.
