Weekly Astrology Forecast for Creatives | May 17th - May 23, 2020 - things get busier but lighten up, careful with big decisions or risky purchases, new moon offers fresh ideas and perspectives plus re-connecting and re-building opportunities


SUNDAY - Sun trines Jupiter
WEDNESDAY - Venus squares Neptune
THURSDAY - Sun into Gemini
FRIDAY - New Moon in Gemini, Sun trines Saturn, Mercury conjuncts Venus and squares Neptune

The Sun moves into Gemini and life get busier. It should feel less heavy and lighter though as we get into more and more air and less and less earth. There are multiple Neptunian contacts this week - so expect facts to become even more slippery (excellent for inspiration, imagination, healing and connecting with the past).

This would NOT be the best week to make a big decision, but there are opportunities through small and flexible steps, maybe one step forward and two back, to start something that lasts!

SUNDAY - we talked about the Sun's (Taurus) trine to Jupiter (retrograde in Cappy at 27 degrees) on the Sunday daily and last week's weekly.

Here is a light shined on expansion/growth. With Jupiter retrograde maybe rewards for past work or opportunities from the past that come back around.

This continues a chapter the Sun/Jupiter started back on December 27, 2019 when they last met - we were in-between Eclipses then - and this story concludes on January 28, 2021 when they meet again and start a new chapter. No Jupiter/Sun meetings (conjunctions) at all in 2020 and that is very rare and tells us alot about this year!

So, the story they started at the end of last year, moves forward now. Trines remove the brakes/obstacles and this trine is with our Taurus house. So what house does Capricorn rule in your natal chart? What house does Taurus rules? What are the themes of these houses? These houses are always working together, but now they have some real power behind them and are super-charged!

Here's MONDAY since I probably won't pop in with the dailies until Tuesday -  the Moon's only aspect  on Monday (in Aries - so nurtured through independent or physical action, initiative, passion, men) is an opportunistic sextile to Mercury - home in Gemini now - at 1:14PM EST. This is great energy for fresh communications/conversations/sales/meetings/commerce. Good for sibling, local community and transportation situations. Good for mental activities. Independent work.

Tomorrow there is likely to be added pressure/tension, so make the most of this day. We'll talk about Tuesday in the lunar dailies.

WEDNESDAY - here is where a retrograde Venus makes her second square to illusive Neptune.

Be careful now. Things are not quite what they appear to be. This is NOT the time to make any big decisions/to be deciding between two things or making an important financial decision/spending a large sum of money. Sort through the facts. Think things through. It won't be easy to do this with foggy Neptune in the mix, but something almost surely looks better than it actually is or has something that is hidden and less appealing that we can't see right now. 

We had this aspect back on May 3rd, so we could be re-vising, re-viewing something from that time period. It will be too easy to ignore the facts and undermine ourselves with this energy, so slow down. Take care to not just be saying what people want to hear or hearing what we want them to be saying. Read between the lines. This aspect is in play all month, but very strong today.

THURSDAY - the Sun moves from earthy and stable Taurus into airy and fluid Gemini.

Gemini energy talks. It listens. It questions. It perceives what isn't said at all. In short, it doesn't miss a trick. With so much to see and so much to do and so much to communicate - there is not a moment to waste on any of those roses we were smelling last month/week/yesterday. Things will not be quite so black and white as they were in Taurus. It's a time to be curious. Ask questions. Change our mind. Try different things. We've been going deep and now we want to go wide. 

Since Gemini rules information we will have alot coming at us over the next few weeks. Not all of it will be true. Gemini (the twins) is the sign of duality - of black and white, of feminine and masculine, of truth and lies. Nothing will be totally one way or the other or quite what is seems now. We will be faced with dilemmas and changing viewpoints.

In the end contradictory thoughts and things can come together with this energy, but it takes work, an open mind and the ability to stay flexible.

We all have ideas about how things are supposed to look and work that we've carried since childhood (and from our ancestors/past lives). We have these beliefs and then we, subconsciously, look around for the things that support these beliefs and that's what we notice. Then our beliefs gets reconfirmed and strengthened. Even though these beliefs are no truer than someone else's beliefs that reflect the very opposite thing!

(this would be a good time to post on Facebook what we are doing and not what we are believing - let's give everyone a break and declare a moratorium on passive-aggressive and "know-it-all" memes and post about our lives again)

With the Sun in Gemini and all of us burning Gemini fuel - we can give ourselves permission to embrace a more wide open receptive state. We can move against the beliefs we've been strengthening since childhood if they no longer suit us.  

See what house holds Gemini in your natal chart - this space is communicating with you now. During Gemini season we will be busy. Starts and endings will be fast and furious, but lasting .... that's very questionable.

FRIDAY - this is the big day and we will unpack this further in the New Moon post.

We have the Moon meeting the Sun at 2 degrees Gemini ushering in a new lunar month. The New Moon/Sun will trine Saturn making whatever is started now - extra sticky! New information, communications, ideas come in. Mercury (ruler of Gemini, and so ruler of this lunation) will be conjunct Venus -  so we could get some good news! - although there is a big BUT here - sorry! - his square to illusive Neptune could indicate hidden information or things seeming better than they actually are. Any Neptunian contact makes things cloudy, so watch for miss-information, any escape/addiction/self-sabotaging tendencies. Again this is a communicative New Moon and this is a good time to reach out to others.

We'll talk about the New Moon in detail in its own post!

xo all
