Wild Moon Wisdom Horoscopes for the week of Monday, May 8 - Sunday, May 14
May is underway and we take refuge in the prominent Taurus vibes- we need this for sanity and grounding. This week Mercury gains momentum in his direct motion and our mental fog is finally beginning to clear. With Uranus in the mix with Mercury (conjunct), Mercury’s direct station will illuminate for us quickly and more than usual, so stay tuned to your revelations. We have several aspects this week that will play out in a myriad of ways and could keep things interesting. The full moon in Scorpio on Wednesday will bring illumination for us all and the culmination of the lunar cycle that began six months ago. Another important shift that unfolds on Wednesday is the North Node shifting into Leo (until November 2018), which shifts the nodal axis from Virgo/Pisces to Leo/Aquarius. Mars in Gemini is active all month long and this week squares Neptune and harmonizes with Jupiter… Wednesday’s full moon is also Lunar Beltane (older observance date) and an appropriate time for magic and to “bless the fields.”
Enjoy your week.
