May 11: Breakthroughs in Communications
Mercury is square Mars at 12:33 a.m.
Overnight, Mercury in methodical Taurus comes into a friction causing square with Mars in aloof Aquarius. This is the last aspect Mercury makes before changing signs again today, so it can represent a make or break moment that presents early this morning. It can also symbolize arguments or difficult debates, so some verbal wrestling may highlight the early part of the day. It could take form in a nagging problem causing a peak in frustration personally, and there may be a global theme of this nature that occurs in world events as well.
Mercury enters Gemini at 2:58 p.m.
Moon is sextile Neptune at 3:05 p.m.
Moon is trine the sun at 5:24 p.m.
Moon is inconjunct Venus at 5:30 p.m.
The afternoon is densely packed with cosmic action with Mercury shifting signs into swift and multifaceted Gemini—it’s home sign. Mercury is naturally speedy, fluid, and analytical in this sign, and we may notice a surge in social energy, and a breakthrough in communications, personally and collectively. The flow of currency, ideas, and messages may switch into high gear, so it will be interesting to see the various ways it presents.
At the same time, the moon in pragmatic Capricorn forms a sextile with Neptune in sensitive Pisces, blending reserved emotions with creative ideals. The moon then comes into an earth trine with the sun in sensual Taurus, grounding and stabilizing emotional expression and perceptions. Shortly after, the moon forms an inconjunct angle with Venus in Gemini, stirring up uncanny feelings and disconnects in our romantic relationships.
Moon is conjunct Pluto Rx at 11:14 p.m.
Late at night, the moon in cautious Capricorn joins Pluto, melding a rather pensive mood with an awareness of somewhat dire and transformative topics. For some of us, this may present as a rather heavy, overburdened feeling. It will be important to breathe through this tough passage and know it will lighten by the morning.
