Embrace the Summer Kickoff: Harnessing Jupiter in Gemini

Although summer officially begins with the Sun’s entry into Cancer on June 20th, Memorial Day marks its unofficial start. Memorial Day, originally known as Decoration Day, is a federal holiday honoring those who have died in US military service. Across the country, parades and picnics mark this day of remembrance. This year, Jupiter enters Gemini at 7:14 PM EDT on Saturday, May 25th, ushering in a time of intellectual curiosity and growth. Are you planning to travel this summer? Expect to learn and embrace new ways of thinking. Jupiter will remain in Gemini until June 2025. While Jupiter is known for its benevolent influence, we must stay mindful to make the most of this transit. Positively, you can anticipate a surge in intellectual interests and mental expansion. Your mind may explore new and delightful avenues. However, be cautious of potential anxiety and scattered mental energy. It’s crucial to find focus and calm your mind. This could be the perfect time to reinvigorate or start a meditation practice.

A DYNAMIC HOLIDAY – Monday, May 27, 2024

The week begins with the Moon in grounded Capricorn, insisting that even though it is a holiday we focus on practical matters and long-term goals.  Get the yardwork done or do other tasks that require discipline and commitment. Make sure everything is in its proper place for the coming Summer Season.

As the day proceeds, the energy shifts significantly when the Moon enters innovative Aquarius at 4:45 pm EDT. This invites a more open-minded approach to the evening and the next few days. Now you are ready to engage in Memorial Day social activities. Embrace this shift by exploring new ideas and connecting with friends. 

Tonight brings a lovely sextile between Mercury in Taurus and Saturn in Pisces at 11:21 pm EDT. This is a great night for clear conversations that are logical, intuitive, and creative. 

Questions to ask yourself: 

  • What will I get done with the disciplined energy of the Moon in Capricorn this morning? 
  • What new ideas or social activities will I explore as the Moon enters Aquarius late this afternoon?
  • How will I bring practical thinking and creativity to my conversations this evening?


HARMONY & CONNECTIONS – Tuesday, May 28, 2024

Today dawns with the Moon in Aquarius as we return to work after a long weekend. Aquarius is a sign that values innovation, independence, and social connections. This is a day to think outside the box and embrace unconventional approaches to your work and social life. Brainstorming sessions, community involvement, and exploring futuristic ideas are all valuable ways to use this energy.

In the early morning, the Moon forms a harmonious trine with Venus and the Sun, enhancing feelings of warmth, affection, connection, and creativity. The Moon trine Venus aspect brings a gentle, loving energy, making it an ideal time to nurture relationships and indulge in activities that bring you joy. Whether spending time with loved ones, enjoying creative pursuits, or pampering yourself, allow this morning to uplift your spirits. The Moon trine Sun further supports a lovely day, providing warmth and confidence. This is a day to express yourself and align your actions with your values. Strengthen your connections with others and focus on activities that warm your soul.

Questions to ask yourself today:

  • How will I manage circumstances with innovation and creativity?
  • What intimate or social relationships will I nurture as the Moon trine Venus?
  • How will I align actions and my core values during the Moon-trine Sun aspect?


HEALING VULNERABILITIES – Wednesday, May 29, 2024

Today the Moon continues through Aquarius, bringing an atmosphere of intellectual curiosity and social engagement. Activities that involve collaboration, innovation, and humanitarian efforts are called for. This is a great time to connect with friends or groups that share your ideals and vision for the future.

At 1:08 pm EDT, Mars conjuncts Chiron (at 22 degrees Aries), bringing a powerful focus on healing, vulnerability, and personal growth. This aspect can stir up old wounds or highlight areas where you experience deep tenderness. However, it also offers an opportunity for deep healing and the courage to face these issues head-on. Use this time to address unresolved pain and suffering. Plant metaphorical seeds for healing and empowerment. Because this conjunction occurs in Aries, physical activities or outlets can be particularly therapeutic. Pay attention if you have planets or sensitive points near 22 degrees of any Cardinal sign (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn). This will be particularly relevant and personal for you.

At 8:33 pm EDT, the Moon enters sensitive Pisces, shifting the mood toward empathy and intuition. Over the next few days, you will be more sensitive to your emotions and those of others. This is a good time for spiritual practices or simply a time for rest and reflection.

Questions to ask yourself:

  1. How will I use the Mars conjunct Chiron conjunction to address and heal old wounds and vulnerabilities today?
  2. What innovative projects will I focus on while the Moon is in Aquarius?
  3. How will I embrace the intuitive compassionate nature of the Moon in Pisces over the next few days?


REFLECT AND RECALIBRATE – Thursday, May 30, 2024

The Moon remains in Pisces all day, wrapping us in a dreamy, intuitive, and compassionate atmosphere. Slow down, and be gentle and compassionate with yourself and others today. Pisces is the mutable Water sign and is ruled by Jupiter and secondarily by Neptune. When the Moon is here, she encourages us to tune into our inner world, trust our instincts, and connect with our spirituality. Take time for creativity, rest, and gentle self-care.

At 1:12 pm EDT, the Last Quarter Moon phase occurs, marking a time for reflection and reassessment. This phase invites us to evaluate our progress over the past lunar cycle (that began on May 7th) and identify what needs to be released before the next New Moon (June 6th). Consider the outdated beliefs, unproductive habits, and unresolved emotional baggage ready to be released. Use the contemplative energy of the Pisces Moon to engage in activities that promote sensitivity and compassion. Meditation, journaling, or spending time in nature can be particularly beneficial. Allow yourself to embrace a sense of closure and prepare for a fresh start as the current lunar cycle winds down.

Questions to ask yourself:

  • What practices will I incorporate to make the most of the reflective energy of this Last Quarter Pisces Moon?
  • How will I use the intuitive and compassionate energy of the Pisces Moon to enhance my relationships?
  • What beliefs or habits will I release to prepare for the next New Moon?


INSPIRED INSIGHTS – Friday, May 31, 2024

Today starts with the Moon continuing its journey through Pisces, maintaining a mood of sensitivity, intuition, and compassion. This is ideal for creative endeavors, spiritual practices, and building emotional connections.

At 1:53 am EDT, Mercury conjuncts Uranus, bringing innovative ideas, unexpected insights, and suddenly shifting opinions. This may inspire flashes of genius and unconventional thinking, making it a fantastic time for problem-solving and creative breakthroughs. Be open to sudden changes and perspectives that can shake up your routine in new ways.

As the day progresses, continue to harness the intuitive and empathetic energy of the Pisces Moon. Connect deeply with your feelings and those of others, and offer support and understanding where needed. Engage in activities that soothe your soul and spark your imagination. At 11:29 pm EDT, the Moon enters fiery Aries. This will energize and motivate the weekend ahead. 

Questions to ask yourself today:

  • How will I utilize the innovative and exciting ideas of Mercury conjunct Uranus?

Over the course of the day, the Aries Moon forms harmonious aspects with Jupiter, Pluto, Venus, and the Sun, suggesting a supportive and empowering atmosphere.
