This week is all about the superheated Sagittarius Full Moon, Mars Rx and Mercury direct.
The Moon conjoins Mars Rx, bringing Mars’ intensified actions/shift in direction to a culmination. Even if Mars Rx has slowed you down, this Full Moon can trigger a shift, breakthrough or explosion. Remember that Mars Rx is internalized anger/effort/passion - delays are meant to provoke deeper consideration. But internalized heat also means intensified energy. What's released will certainly be motivating.
The Moon opposes Vesta in Gemini (conjoining the Sun) which suggests challenges involving a sacred idea or choice. Vesta marks an area of exclusive focus, and that focus will be under fire.
Mercury (ruler of Gemini) will station direct in Taurus, one day after the Full Moon. Whatever boils over will bring clarity or determination. In general, Mercury direct can mark an end to delayed communication, silence and indecision.
Important dates this week:
- May 16th: Vesta's Gemini ingress
- May 20th: the Sun’s Gemini ingress
- May 21st: Full Moon in Sagittarius
- May 22nd: the Sun opposes Mars Rx
- May 22nd: Mercury direct
