Sun Moves Into Gemini
On Saturday afternoon at 3:31pm CDT the Sun moves into fun loving, quick witted and chatty Gemini. While in Taurus we may have felt slow and sluggish, while others just felt more relaxed, depending on how we focused the solar energy. Are we avoiding the work we need to do, or are we taking a much needed break? Have we been indulging ourselves in a healthy way, or falling back into unhealthy old habits? Either way, this coming weekend the energy shifts. If we have been avoiding things we may now feel the urge to get moving and start something. If we have been relaxing, we want to start to get active again. Gemini energy is very quick and flighty at times, so if you are working on a long term project it is best to break it down into short doable steps, and to reward yourself in between, as this is not an overly serious sign. We also tend to get more easily distracted, though this can lead to some interesting side adventures, so make time in your days over the next solar month for fun.
Mercury Moves Into Taurus
Mercury the planet of communication moves from aggressive and assertive Aries into Taurus on Monday May 15 at 11:07pm. While communication over the past few weeks may have been more blunt, this week people soften their tone. Aries is all about fire and self will, while Taurus tends towards being more easy going. While before people may have been looking for a fight, this week, people are more likely to be quiet and relaxed. They will stubbornly hold to their opinions, and it is best not to try to change anyones mind, as they won't be listening to you anyway.
