There is so much else happening that is also part of the story playing out recently, and in all of 2020.  Listen to the video for the details and where this eclipse is falling in your chart.

Mercury Conjunct NN then into Cancer - The Editing Process

Although at first glance it appears to be a relatively benign week, there are definitely some things to take note of.
Along with Mars Conjunt Ceres sextile Uranus, Pallas is moving back into Capricorn - bringing her energy of creative problem solving and ingenuity to the current situation.

Furthermore, Mercury is hitting the North Node in Gemini just before it moves into Cancer where it will remain until August 4th as it retrogrades there between June 18th and July 12th. This is giving us first a glimpse into where we're headed for the next 18 months, and then a chance to focus our thinking and communications on what's close, personal and brings us a sense of emotional security.  As the retrograde approaches, we get a chance to review the story that's been transpiring in relation to the Cancer Capricorn energies that have been at the forefront in recent years and what lessons we will take with us moving forward.

Venus Conjunct Vesta & ALL the Retrogrades - Follow the Yellow Brick Road

We are in the midst of a ton of retrograde energy.  The Big Review of what's happened so far on our personal and collective journeys.  Pluto and Saturn are currently retrograde and Venus and Jupiter join them on May 13th & 14th respectively.

We are all like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz right now - in a crazy dream.  When we wake up, we (ideally) will be changed by our experience.  Venus Retrograde is conjunct Vesta - asking us to tune into our heart's desires. What and who are we truly devoted to?  What is sacred to us?  These are questions to reflect on during this time.

 

Astrology for May 20-26, 2020

Gemini New Moon - Puzzle Pieces

The Gemini New Moon occurs on May 22, 2020 at 2 degrees of the Mutable Air Sign.  This along with the Sun's yearly entrance into Gemini puts extra focus on Gemini themes (communication, socializing, information gathering and sharing, curiosity...).  The area of our charts that Gemini sits will see some new beginning, or perhaps with all the current retrogrades, something old will be new again.

While Mercury and Venus also meet up in Gemini and form a tense able to Neptune in Pisces, we are cautioned to be mindful and clear in our communications and not to believe everything we hear or read.  The good news is, Saturn and Pallas in early Aquarius are harmonizing with the New Moon.  What we begin now may take a while to get off the ground, but it can have staying paying power.  In fact, we may see it expand around the time of the Great Saturn-Jupiter conjunction in December of this year.

Scorpio Full Moon & Saturn Retrograde - The Feeling Mind & Back to The Future

The Full Moon in Scorpio happens on May 7th at 6:45 a.m. EST at17 degrees.  In a word, Scorpio is intense.  This Full Moon may be emotionally intense, but there is cause for optimism too. We may experience the hand of Divine Grace as Neptune in Pisces is in trine with the Moon.  Neptune is also having a supportive conversation with Mercury who sits with the Sun in Taurus, and opposite the Moon. 

This Full Moon has the signature of what Danielle Dulsky refers to as the Feeling Mind.
A few days after the Full Moon in Scorpio, Saturn will Retrograde at 1 degree Aquarius (the spot of the Great Conjunction that will happen in December 2020).  The Lord of Time and Karma, stationing retrograde in the futuristic, innovative sign of Aquarius, allows us an opportunity to go Back to the Future.
