Wild Moon Wisdom Horoscopes for the week of Monday, 15 - Sunday, May 21
Taurus season is coming to a close and on Saturday afternoon the sun enters Gemini (1:31pm PDT) and we’ll begin a new solar cycle. Gemini is a mutable air sign ruled by Mercury, the Messenger, and duality is the main trait. Gemini’s symbol is the Twins and rules the lungs, shoulders, hands and arms. Gemini tends to be more mental than emotional, adapts easily, and can have a nervous temperament. Adaptability and communicativeness are trademark Gemini qualities that we can all practice and employ during this sun cycle.
Mercury, Gemini’s ruler, moves to Taurus on Monday evening, bringing a bit of groundedness to our minds and conversations for this week. And near the end of the week we have the second exact Saturn/Uranus trine that should be interesting and even potentially awesome for all involved. Saturn, as any Archer will tell you, is in Sagittarius (no picnic) and Uranus of course is in Aries. The expression of Saturn is one of sternness, restriction and structure while Uranus is the radical planet of change; this is the “old guard” meeting the rebellious and using the best energies and applications of both worlds to create (r)evolution.
The shift out of the Age of Pisces into the Age of Aquarius is a bumpy ride… ground down and rise up.
Enjoy your week. xo, KK
