Mercury Stations Direct / Jupiter in Taurus – May 2023
On the final week of the Sun in Taurus, you will do the hokey-pokey and turn yourself around, going from reviewing and course correcting the past (Mercury Retrograde) to looking ahead, although it will take some time to reorient and build momentum. New info will come to light and life should flow more easily (a relief!). Release any fears around being late or missing something – and once again, trust in Divine Timing.
May 12 – Mercury-Saturn is a harmonious aspect that supports business, plans, organizing, critical thinking, paperwork, teaching and important communications – and it’s followed by Mercury sextile Venus that bodes well for personal or professional connections, creative expression, socializing and aligning your head with your heart.
May 13 – Venus trine Saturn serves student-teacher dynamics, stabilizes $$, love, brings creativity into form, offers clarity around values, budgets and is good for decisions and organizing. Patience, prudence, and a reality check are all front and center as you consider what you value and how you are operating.
May 14 – Mercury Stations Direct (appears to stand still) and as it prepares to turn and pick up steam, it’s common for info to be missing, unavailable or delayed, bring your patience. After it moves forward, Mercury will meet Saturn again on May 19 on the New Moon in Taurus, and everything should come together then.
May 15 – Mars trine Neptune allows your intuition (your Inner GPS) to guide you, letting you know when and where to make a move, in flow. Also, this energy is useful for being in a higher state of consciousness (meditation, being in nature, yoga, reiki, dance, other spiritual practice). Anything that calls your energy within and connects you with your spirit is beautiful. Details are not the focus today.
May 16 – Jupiter enters Taurus until late May ’24. Optimistic Jupiter had been in impulsive Aries since Dec ’22 – hot to trot, but not very thoughtful – ready to jump into things that may not have panned out. Now idealistic Jupiter is in earthy, practical Taurus, sign of values, $$, fertility and worthiness. Grounded, present, slow and ready to build something lasting.
Jupiter rules philosophy, spirituality and the meaning of life – it brings opportunities and abundance, especially if you widen your perspective of life to see a bigger picture. Taurus is careful with money, connected to the body, nature and focused on what really matters. It is deliberate, prepared for the long game. Stay open to opportunities, but know that you don’t have to do anything right away – Taurus is a planner, and will prepare before making a move, rather than rushing into anything. Acclimate to this considerable downshift to align with the new frequency as your first step.
May 17 – Jupiter square Pluto is some major challenge – or opportunity. Pluto is power, so if you have the power and someone makes you an offer you can’t refuse, your job is to stay in integrity NO MATTER WHAT! Or Pluto may be a bully, landlord, boss, entity or person with power over you in which you’re forced into a corner. Stay high, stay grounded, get help. Jupiter is also beliefs – and this can be dogma, giving $$ or your power away to a guru or figure you idealize. Stay awake. The decision you make today could have. a lasting impact.
May 18 – Sun sextile Neptune is spiritual, creative, higher dimensional energy, higher consciousness, nonlinear energy of imagination. This is perfect spiritual practices, being in nature, rest, relaxation, art appreciation, helping those less fortunate, being with children, elders, animals, making music, art and Oneness. Peace and blessings.
This is a powerful week of new seeds being planted with Jupiter’s entry into Taurus and Mercury Direct, as we move toward the end of the Eclipse wormhole that officially closes on the New Moon in Taurus on May 19. Focus on who and what you treasure and what you want to create, increase, develop and cultivate – as you appreciate the sweetness of your life.
Your nervous system has been under assault for so long and you really need a deep rest, a walk in the grass, a salt bath and a reset, so please allow yourself to have it. Slow everything DOWN and relax. Namaste.
As always, I am grateful for your presence on our journey together.
