Weekly Horoscope: May 9-13, 2022
All (or much) will be revealed as a dramatic lunar eclipse draws nigh and Jupiter brings a blast of fresh optimism.
Tuesday is a big day for planetary players. The workday dawns with more mental fog than usual as Mercury, planet of cognitive functioning, begins one of its retrograde phases. Since it is the sign of the Twins, until May 22 communication snafus may be doubly troublesome. Everyday exchanges can be more prone to misunderstandings. Doublecheck all missives, and resist posting or sending in haste. And be especially cautious when signing important agreements or papers.
Gemini rules shorter distance travel (Sagittarius gets longer journeys), so add contingency time to short trips or commutes. And maybe delay buying a new set of wheels. On May 22, the winged messenger gets a reality check as it backs into Taurus. Security, especially financial, may then be up for review.
Meanwhile, on the same day, jovial Jupiter urges us to go big or go home as it returns to the energetic and pioneering sign of Aries for the first time since 2010-11. Boldness and enterprise return to our vocabulary, and our energy and ambition get a boost. We’re able to more boldly face any obstacles. And to believe in our ability to get results. The downside: we’re more apt to shoot from the lip and leap without looking first. And while candor and initiative are both good things, they can be overdone.
Expand your scope and get new plans on the drawing board, but delay launch until Mercury goes direct. Then gun it until Jupiter goes retrograde on July 28 and things stall. And on October 28, Jupiter backs into Pisces again only returning to Aries on December 20 of this year to May 16, 2023.
The Moon is in sensible and workaholic Virgo on Wednesday, helping us keep our noses to the grindstone. The next day it shifts into relationship-minded Libra. The urge to merge can be stalled with pre-eclipse energy, so it’s best not to push any issue.
There is a kind of hush over the weekend scenario, which is dominated by a phenomenon taking place in the wee hours of Monday ET (late Sunday PT) the total lunar eclipse. Intrigued? Want to know more? See the next post!
