Your Weekly Horoscope for May 29 to June 4, 2022: A Mercurial New Moon

May 29, 2022

Aspects are few and far between throughout this week, but plenty is going on in the cosmos!

At the very beginning of the week, Mars conjuncts Jupiter in Aries, blending the minor malefic with the major benefic. Jupiter tends to expand upon whatever it touches, turning it golden with luck as if Jupiter has the Midas touch. When Jupiter expands upon Mars, it will be like spraying hairspray on a tiny flame. Forceful and fiery, the combustion of Jupiter and Mars feels indescribable. Sensual desire will be revved up, especially with the foreplay of these two lusty planets. Ambitions are fueled by an intense desire to conquer every goal. The only potential catch is the abundance of anger, aggression, and even violence, especially since this is Martian-ruled Aries energy. Watch your temper during this conjunction! 

New Moon in Gemini

What will spark your curiosity? The new moon in Mercurial Gemini begins an inquisitive new cycle that will unfold over the next six months, making it a fantastic time to set intentions. Since this is occurring in Gemini, you may want to express your lunar wishes in a Mercurial manner. Writing, speaking, blogging, and even tweeting are perfect ways to communicate your intentions for this cycle to the Universe!

Gemini’s multifaceted energy implies that this lunation will vary in results. Two-faced Gemini could indicate two paths, two sides of the self, or two opportunities that may divert your attention in multiple directions. Your head might be spinning during this lunation since Gemini’s lunar presence is exceptionally mental. Luna’s Mercurial influence will spark a never-ending series of ideas, thoughts, and questions. 

Mercury Retrograde is Over!

Expect to feel relieved when Mercury stations direct in Taurus on Friday, June 3. All communicative and technological issues may slowly come to an end now that Mercury is getting situated. Even though Mercury retrograde is over, the post-shadow phase has just begun. Use this phase to mediate any lingering issues from the retrograde period.

The first part of the post-shadow phase will be Mercury working its way back through Taurus. Mentally, Mercury will feel sure-footed, as Taurus’s earthy energy can ground the otherwise scattered planet. Conversations will finally pick up the pace instead of stubbornly stalling any longer. Since Taurus rules over security, value, and money, the collective will experience more financial stability as well. Prices could stabilize, unexpected bills are handled, and the appraisal of value is solidified. 

Saturn stations Retrograde

At the very end of the week, Saturn stations retrograde in Aquarius. Retrogrades are an astrological period of rethinking, reviewing, then revising. Since Saturn retrograde will begin on June 4 and last until October 23, this may unfold slowly.

Old man Saturn will tell us to buck up! Throughout Saturn retrograde, the themes of karmic duties, restrictions, responsibilities, foundations, legacy, and time will be apparent. The collective will need to review what they have built thus far and if it is in alignment with their highest good. After all, taskmaster Saturn wants us to be on the right path. But this comes with a “tough love” mentality. So, Saturn retrograde is going to encourage mature introspection to consider what is serving its purpose in our lives. 

Aquarius energy will make this a highly individualistic retrograde, but allow each individual to contribute something more incredible than ever imagined to the greater community. Saturn retrograde in Aquarius will reconsider if authenticity, innovation, and eccentricity are prioritized. These aspects will play into the futuristic cause and effect that our structures, rules, and responsibility will entail. 

Throughout this period, let Saturn retrograde in Aquarius ask you the big picture questions: What am I contributing to the greater society? Am I living my truth? How do I restrict myself and how does this impact my life?
