May 23rd sees an opposition between Mercury (communication, details) in Taurus and Jupiter (ideals, the big picture) Rx in Scorpio. Normally, this opposition would result in exaggerated thoughts/words, but Jupiter’s Rx motion is working to narrow the field of expansion. So there may be an intensive focus that leads to a big answer/understanding. However, there is still a risk of losing sight of the immediate facts if you don’t maintain your focus. Mercury will go on to trine Pluto Rx on May 25th, which can confirm and intensify the above results. Overall, these energies suggest a positive conclusion with significant weight.
Also on May 23rd, the Gemini Sun (ruled by Mercury) trines Mars in Aquarius, increasing Gemini’s already fast-paced approach to information. Actions will focus on what’s new, and there’s a logical, detached feel to this. Great for powering forward with facts, words and introductions. Combined with the Mercury/Jupiter opposition, this could be the day to hit others with your thoughts, in a big way. Or, move ahead with what you've learned.
Dreams and Reality
May 25th brings the second of three trines between Jupiter Rx and Neptune. Jupiter’s intensified focus (or adjustment of growth) will chime with Neptune’s dreams (or fantasies), and the result will be expansion with no limits. Something can slide forward effortlessly, but it’s up to you if this is healthy or not. This is an enabler - you can create, let go or slide into an addiction.
May 26th brings a reality check to balance out the Jupiter/Neptune dream. Venus in Cancer opposes Saturn Rx, which is a result with significant responsibilities. Even if you do achieve something desired, you'll be well aware of what's missing.
As I wrote in a previous post:
“…an ending or result that hi-lights what you can't have, while encouraging you to look after yourself. You're responsible (Saturn) for what makes you happy. In some cases, this can illustrate a heavy commitment (marriage) with restrictions. There's a strong adult (Saturn) versus child (Cancer) vibe to this. You may feel like stamping your feet if you're denied.”
Mercury in your sector of personal resources opposes Jupiter Rx, indicating an answer or result around finances or security. A key area of growth involving shared finances, psychological exploration or intimacy will be pinpointed - the temptation to share, give or demand too much will be modified by the ongoing demand for increased focus. Sensitive or taboo information that’s uncovered can tell you exactly what you need to know to enhance your security. Mercury’s trine to Pluto solidifies what you discover, while giving you an edge in financial and career discussions.
The Sun in your communication sector trine Mars activates energetic connections with the public - excellent for reaching out to friends, gaining attention for your words, gathering diverse opinions or tuning into something new and exciting.
Jupiter/Neptune can greatly expand intimacy, inner peace/optimism or the desire to merge (with someone or a higher power). This is an enabling influence, which includes healthy and unhealthy habits. Escapism, deep healing or the release of fears are possible. Something’s growing in the shadows - take a close look and ensure that you can swim with it.
Venus in your domestic sector opposes Saturn Rx, bringing you to a personal and professional conclusion. An official career announcement/result, job ending, retirement or consequence will define exactly what you want and have at home. It will also define what you’re missing (including key areas of support) and what you can’t have. External authority will dominate. In contrast to Jupiter/Neptune, this influence will deliver an external reality check.
Mercury in your sign opposes Jupiter Rx, bringing a relationship answer, ending or realization. The key area will be growth/expansion/future goals that are being reassessed - you’ll get your answer as to whether or not you and another are on the same page. Mercury’s trine to Pluto Rx suggests certain changes involving travel, education, legal matters, publishing or beliefs will be confirmed. Watch for an intensified sense of understanding as what you learn empowers you.
The Sun in your sector of personal resources trine Mars energizes money and career matters. Your professional efforts will activate additional financial options (new sources of income, more choices for salary, etc) - innovation and flexibility are key.
Jupiter/Neptune can give you more options regarding one-on-one relationships, friendships and public connections. Watch for the growth of ideals, empathetic connections or hope for the future. The key will be your ability to connect with others in a non-judgemental, compassionate manner.
However, Venus in your communication sector opposite Saturn Rx can hi-light a stringent rule, result, official announcement or verbal/written commitment that may not deliver exactly what you were hoping for. Or, you may get what you want along with a pile of obligations. An achievement can make you aware of additional responsibilities, and you could feel judged or unfairly criticized.
Mercury in your hidden sector opposes Jupiter Rx. A shift in perspective involving health, daily routine or obligations to others will reveal something secret or unacknowledged. If expansion around work or health issues (including your enthusiasm to do more) has been reigned in, you can focus that enthusiasm and come up with an effective solution for what was previously obscured. However, make sure that you have a firm grip on the reality of the situation - it will be easy to overestimate if you race over the details. However, Mercury’s trine to Pluto Rx should keep you on track if you tune into instinctive knowledge, deeply personal issues or psychological breakthroughs. Sensitive or taboo information will be important.
The Sun in your sign trine Mars gives you energy, initiative and even more curiosity than usual. Excellent for exploring new territory or reaching a wider audience.
Jupiter/Neptune looks good for career, as your approach to work and routines enhances a professional dream, creative approach to business or a business ideal. You can do more and impress others , especially if you’re focusing your energy wisely.
However, Venus in your sector of personal resources opposite Saturn Rx does indicate some financial and security shortfalls. A reality check about debts, taxes, loans, your partner’s finances, intimacy or personal boundaries can hi-light where you feel most insecure or where you’re lacking something. Consider if the limits you’ve encountered are actually intensifying your desire. In some cases, this aspect can indicate an official result or ending around what you owe or earn.
Mercury in your social sector opposes Jupiter Rx, suggesting public announcements, discussions or results will be driven by creative efforts or romantic issues. Focused expansion of something that’s highly desired (or something you want to show off) will grab public attention, but there is also some risk of exaggerated expectations or statements. Nonetheless, this aspect can mark a social success as your words convince others. Mercury’s trine to Pluto Rx add some one-on-one intensity: even as you reach a large audience, the content of your words will magnetize others on a personal level. Too, the support of a partner can add reassurance.
The Sun in your hidden sector trine Mars energizes things behind the scenes. Secrets, intimate issues or psychological exploration will be activated, and you’ll have the energy and courage to push into uncomfortable territory.
Jupiter/Neptune expands creative and romantic prospects, as possibilities, creativity or foreign markets open up. Also great for pure celebration and indulgence, although there is a risk of going too far (it may feel natural to just keep going).
However, Venus in your sign opposes Saturn Rx, so you’ll also be in for a reality check involving your love life or a specific partner. A result, commitment or ending will emphasize what you can’t have, and parent/child issues in the partnership may be hi-lighted. Even a positive outcome will feel a bit heavy, as you become aware of extra responsibilities or limits. You could also feel less than attractive if you’re denied something. Keep in mind that Saturn’s limits always point out where you have to provide for yourself. And, consider if you’re projecting some of these restrictions, or projecting your authority.
Mercury in your career sector opposes Jupiter Rx, indicating a professional announcement, result, meeting with management or business launch. This could be a big, bold statement, and your adjustment of domestic priorities will play an important role. Make sure you’re able to keep any promises you make- align your future goals with your personal growth. Mercury’s trine to Pluto Rx can help if you pay attention to routines, corrections and practical applications of daily changes. Efforts in your work or health can empower your professional image, while adding weight and conviction to your words.
The Sun in your social sector trines Mars, powering up one-on-one and group relationships (or friendships). All interactions with others can benefit from your energy and curiosity, although someone else may be the initiator.
Jupiter/Neptune can bring moments of domestic bliss or family comfort. Home finances or a domestic relationship look favourable, as you easily let go of worries and lose yourself in the moment. Enjoy what you’ve got going on at home, but use caution if you’re selling or buying - it will be easy to lose track of your financial reality.
Note that Venus in your hidden sector opposite Saturn Rx will remind you that a fantasy or secret attraction/desire can’t be sustained. Real life (and your daily grind) will trump what you’ve been hiding or avoiding.
Mercury in your sector of opportunities opposes Jupiter Rx, suggesting results involving a graduation, travel, legal matter or publishing. What you learn or announce will come from your focus on a particular issue, or your efforts to research/uncover the truth. This can be a successful conclusion if you keep your original goals in mind (don’t get distracted by additional info or opportunities). Mercury’s trine to Pluto Rx adds manifestation potential, especially if a creative project is involved. Much will depend on the intensity of your desire to succeed and how seriously you’ve been taking your talents. Excellent for writing/publishing.
The Sun in your career sector trines Mars, supporting professional goals (or connections with management) by harmonizing your daily work with the bigger picture. The effort you apply to fix, upgrade or simply get it done will drive your professional life forward.
Jupiter/Neptune opens up communication (verbal and non-verbal) between you and a partner. Empathy and idealism will be high, but take a close look at any beautiful promises that are made. Make sure there’s proof to back up future possibilities. Good for forgiving or transcending petty issues.
However, Venus in your social sector opposite Saturn Rx is a reminder that some relationships (or connections with the public) will be limited by certain realities. Your public image may be under scrutiny (keep it clean and professional ) or you may be rejected on some level. The limits you encounter are designed to draw your attention to what you’re responsible for, regarding your talents, special purpose or desire to be appreciated. You may have to work harder, or accept that certain things are not possible. In some cases, a public or social accomplishment can result in extra responsibilities along with the attention.
Mercury in your sector of shared resources opposes Jupiter Rx, delivering results involving debts, taxes, loans, your partner’s finances, intimacy or psychological issues. Intense conversations or taking a deep look at what you need and have can pay dividends, especially if you’ve made adjustments to spending, sources of income or bottom-line needs. Watch for a personal discovery or positive growth in an area where you share with someone else. Mercury’s trine to Pluto Rx enables a deeper understanding of your unconscious issues, or intimate dynamics with a partner. You can also gain better control over domestic issues as you look at what’s going on behind the scenes (especially where inherited issues are involved).
The Sun in your sector of opportunities trines Mars, urging you to explore, take a calculated risk or jump into a new adventure. Education, travel, a new attraction or publishing can be areas where you feel a surge of confidence and curiosity.
Jupiter/Neptune can see you profiting (or feeling good) by helping others, or releasing issues/routines that have undermined your health. However, if not handled properly, this aspect can also encourage self-indulgence or overspending -if you’re tempted to let an obligation (to self or others) slide, know that Venus/Saturn will remind you of personal and professional parameters. Your professional image or work relationships will be clearly defined, and there could be consequences. However, if you’ve done the work these energies could deliver a result that gives you more authority or respect (however, you’ll still be strongly aware of the rules you have to live by).
Mercury in your partnership sector opposes Jupiter Rx in your sign, delivering a relationship conclusion, answer or turning point. Discussions will be based on your intensified focus and/or adjustments to an area of growth. There may be tension between your goals versus your partner’s goals, but Mercury’s trine to Pluto Rx should enable cooperation and mutual growth if you both have a common goal (involving change or advancement). Also excellent for a business partnership.
The Sun in your sector of shared resources trines Mars, helping you make progress behind the scenes in the areas of home, family, domestic finances or your partner’s finances. This energy encourages the active exploration of additional options.
Jupiter Rx in your sign trine Neptune in your sector of self-expression can bring beautiful moments of romance, celebration or creativity. You may be awash with attraction, good feelings and optimism. However, if you have a tendency to overdo it in the areas of drugs, alcohol or romanic obsession, this aspect can make it easy to slide past all limits. You may feel there’s no reason to stop.
However, Venus in your sector of opportunities opposite Saturn Rx will remind you of those limits - travel, long-distance romance, education or legal matters will present reasons why you shouldn’t or can’t. The risk will have consequences. In some cases, this energy can symbolize an official result/graduation/answer.
Mercury in your sector of routine opposes Jupiter Rx, delivering a solution or improvement in the areas of work, health or obligations to others. Behind-the-scenes goals or opportunities may have led to an unexpected loophole, or (in some cases) more work. Make sure your daily reality is aligned with unexpressed expectations. Mercury’s trine to Pluto Rx can keep you on track with reminders of how your particular routines/work can enhance profits and security. Practicality is key - look at the facts around spending, saving and ongoing changes that are impacting your earned money and self-esteem. Do your solutions or approach to self-care align with your values?
The Sun in your partnership sector is energized by a trine to Mars, enabling partnership progress and fast-moving conversations. Co-operation is on tap as actions harmonize with words and you’re able to get it done, together.
Jupiter/Neptune can encourage a dream or unrealized hope, while enabling forgiveness and transcendence of old family issues. Allow yourself to let go and accept what’s coming into being. But in some cases, this energy can make it easy to wander down a path of escapism and illusion.
Venus/Saturn will be your reality check, as finances or relationship issues come to a head. A result will sharply define what you can’t have or don’t have enough of, while also clarifying your responsibilities. Your ability to provide for yourself may be emphasized.

Mercury in your domestic sector opposes Jupiter Rx, signalling a conclusion or final answer around a relocation or development in your career/future goals. Big-picture changes that have focused and refined your future expansion have led you to this point - there could be a reward or recognition from someone in authority.
