On Monday, May 3, Mercury, the planet of communication, clashes with Jupiter, the planet of growth at 5:33 AM: Details are skimmed over for the sake of maintaining a solid argument. At 6:01 AM the sun clashes with Saturn, and a challenge to authority is made. Rules and standards need to be addressed and possibly adjusted. This represents an important event and commitment; a corner is turned on the way to reaching a long-term goal. At 10:49 PM, Mercury enters its home sign of Gemini, where it enjoys learning, talking, and processing information. Over the coming weeks, we’re more flexible with our arguments and ready to take on multiple perspectives.

On Thursday, May 6, Venus, the planet of desire, harmonizes with power planet Pluto at 7:24 AM. This takes relationships to extreme places, but once secrets are shared trust is built. Power dynamics are being resolved. Love overtakes fear.

This weekend we indulge, but at what cost? Pleasure planet Venus clashes with opulent Jupiter at 9:37 AM on Saturday, May 8, and there is an enthusiastic push toward getting what you want, and having as much of it as possible! This is especially pronounced since Venus is at its final degree of Taurus. Venus changes signs at 10:01 PM, entering intellectual air sign Gemini. Venus in Gemini is curious, experimental, and shows love through understanding and communication. Words of affirmation are a love language.

All times ET.
