Highlights for all signs
So, despite spending the month of April in quarantine it seemed to of flown by. There will be a slowing down in May as we have Venus, Saturn and Jupiter all retrograding mid month. There will be a need to go within and reassess relationships, finances, career and your spirituality. We may feel a little tested this month and do not be surprised if you hear of a few rebellions or protests.
Venus square Neptune
You will be feeling creative and romantic and have a greater appreciation of beauty and your surroundings. It is a great day to sing or make a piece of artwork. Spend time in your garden or within nature. You will be sensitive to the needs of others and should be feeling in a pleasant and dreamy mood. It is a good day to use your imagination and get lost in fantasy and dreams.
Sun conjunct Mercury
It is a day to have many conversations, as words will come easier than ever before. If you need to get your point across to someone or speak your truth this is a great day to do so. Your mind is clear and is also a great time to start a new project. Also spend some time thinking about your future. You will be feeling restless so try and move around as much as you can.
Mercury sextile Neptune
Today your imagination is heightened, you may be day dreaming and reading, taking some time to withdraw from reality and your daily obligations. You could have deep insights and feeling intuitive. Thinking may be foggy today, so do not take on more than you can handle.

Your emotional world will be intense today, you can be feeling a little possessive or anxious and end up thinking about the past, It is a good day to let go of any attachments and do not spend too much time brooding over things that you can not control.
Mercury trine Pluto
You are wanting to get to the bottom of things today and may be looking at your inner world and want to understand it better, so it is a good day to read or learn more about psychology or astrology. You may learn something new today. Be careful not to become obsessive about an idea or person.

SATURN TURNS RETROGRADE
Saturn turns retrograde for 5 months every year, the energy can be subtle but often can bring restrictions and is a time of reflection, We need to be careful with this retrograde as we already are experiencing a separation from loved ones and friends and may socially isolate ourselves to the point of feeling alone, depressed and have a feeling of going insane. We need to keep our spirits high by connecting and talking to others as much as we can. This could also lead to a few rebellions around the globe.
Mercury square Mars
You may be feeling a little touchy and irratible today and find other people challenging. You will feel like you are walking on eggshells around others as there wil be an air of defensiveness. You might have to fight for what you believe in today, make sure that you do not let your ego get in the way as may end up in a battle. Watch how you go, as this transit can cause little accidents whilst walking, driving or handling hot objects, connect with how you are feeling as anything that happens today could be a result of your pent up anger. Find an outlet to express yourself.
MERCURY ENTERS GEMINI
Mercury in it's home sign of Gemini, is generally lighter and more relaxed, people communicate well at this time and could bring some good news to people within the next 3 weeks. It is a good time for any type of negotiations or having a job interview.

Today you will be thinking seriously and dealing with practical matters. You will be able to get on top of things and concentrate on tasks at hand. Organise your office space or your home. You might be feeling reserved and rather spend time on your own today, it is however a good time to connect to an elder.
VENUS TURNS RETROGRADE IN GEMINI UNTIL JUNE 25th
Venus turns retrograde once every 18 months for around 40 days and gives you a chance to think about your attitude towards love and finances. You will notice her light not as bright in the sky. Relationships can be tested at this time and is the one time where getting married is unadvisable, as there may be hiccups and the focus tends to be on the past. This is a time where an ex can pop up out of the blue, and where you may have to re direct your goals when it comes to creative projects or finances. (see next post for how this time may affect you personally)
MARS ENTERS PISCES
Mars does not enjoy being in the sign of Pisces, as Mars is wilful and energetic, where as Pisces being a water sign will damp this energy down and can indicate a few storms over the next month. There may be a feeling of fight or flight especially with Venus being retrograde too. Make sure you keep up your active activities or find a new creative project you can put your energy in to.
