The Sun shines in versatile, curious, Air sign Gemini on Saturday, May 20, 2017 and it will give us the urge to chat up all who pass our way. Mercury, the communication planet, rules the 3rd sign of the Zodiac and regardless of whether you tweet, Facebook, mobile or have an old fashioned face-to-face, it wants us to interact in order to add variety to life and just generally perk things up. Gemini has the “twins” as its Astrology symbol (think Castor/Pollux) and we will want to double the fun regardless of our actual birth sign – needing to be in 2 places at once, doing 2 things at the same time. Duality rules.
Transiting planets add spice to the Gemini Sun. Aggressive, warrior Mars (4/21 – 6/5) and quick, clever information maven Mercury (6/7 – 6/21). Learn something new, meet and greet, read and write, chat too much/gossip too much. Hit the pause button occasionally. Collect your thoughts, watch what you say (Gemini verbal cleverness is legendary, just don’t be verbally careless), re focus, complete tasks that need to be finished, then go on to the next.

(Deepak Chopra said: “Language creates reality. Words are magical power. Speak always to create joy”. Perfect for a Gemini Sun Transit.)
Life is always a bit more intense when the Moon is in Scorpio and when this luminary is at its “Full” phase in this emotional Water sign, power and passion can go off the charts. The Scorpio Full Moon arrives on Wednesday, May 10, 2017. All that energy can be distilled into a cauldron of “feelings”. Tuck in all exposed nerves. Don’t take everything personally. Be gentle as you rock someone’s world – intentionally or not.
A Full Moon is a good time to gauge what needs to be finalized and completed in the next few weeks. Use Scorpio’s focus and determination to figure out what to keep and what to throw away (meaning – discard whatever is no longer useful.) Letting go is not necessarily giving up.
Scorpio also pushes us to pay attention to any money matters that may involve others. Are there any financial issues that need to be cleared or settled– taxes, business ventures? Does anyone owe you anything? Time to collect?

Scorpio Moon illuminated opposite Taurus Sun. Beautiful !
This weekend is a great excuse to enjoy Cinco de Mayo celebrations with your beverage of choice (I love Margaritas). On Friday May 5, even though the Moon is in stable, grounded Virgo, a good time can still be had if so inclined (in a responsible way of course :lol:) . Saturday and Sunday belongs to relationship focused Libra.
The Moon will charm and class us up while in the lovely and amiable 7th sign of the Zodiac. This social butterfly Air sign, ruled by elegant, romantic, beautifying Venus, seeks balance, harmony and cooperation while urging us to express our artistic talent, share ourselves with people and just generally expect and accept good times.
Have a spirited weekend!
Think brunch, cocktails…
BTW: “Cinco de Mayo—or the fifth of May—is a holiday that celebrates the date of the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War (1861-1867)”. (Per Wkipedia)
In certain parts of the country, like California where I live, Cinco de Mayo, is a great reason (or excuse) for a gathering.
