Well, if the Pisces moon we had early in the week didn’t sound any intuitive alarms, informative Mercury is about to turn up the volume. On Wednesday, the 29th, it squares gargantuan Neptune and on Thursday, the 30th, it opposes larger-than-life Jupiter. These aspects occur under the blunt and direct force of an Aries moon. Examining, and where necessary, curbing our excesses is a key topic throughout the current Gemini Sun cycle. This week the winged Messenger of the Gods is giving us a taste of what’s about to unfurl. This Gemini solar run features the year’s next Jupiter Neptune square, the day before a Sagittarius full moon, as well as the pressure of a multitude of mutable t-squares. Jupiter, in its lower expression, is the would-be-king who is full of hot air, and Neptune, at its worst, presides over oceans of self-delusion and next level checking out. If we’re living beyond our means, engaging in costly addictions and distractions or simply failing to get our act together, Mercury is about drop some truth on us. One of the more valuable traits of the mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces) is their adaptability. Nimble and flexible, they know when to let go and when to change plans. If we can make the appropriate decisions and adjustments this week, we’re in for a much smoother ride over the coming weeks, and months. Remember, Mars is on course for confrontations with Saturn and Pluto in June and reality-checking Saturn, the ringed planet of limitations, is on track for a friendly connection to Neptune mid-month. If we let Mercury help us clarify our priorities now, austere Saturn will be along shortly to reward our focused efforts. So, get mindful and be prepared to move like a Ninja.
