Earthly Taurus offers a slower pace, stability, and grounding. Welcome this lunation as a reset after the wild ride of eclipse season. Whether yours was uneventful, brought hardship, or delivered abundance, I suspect you felt some of the intensity. If not yourself, people in your orbit likely experienced seismic shifts. The magnified lunations have long tails. Events will still unfold over the next several months as transits activate the hot degrees of 29º Aries and 14º Scorpio.

Communicative Mercury turned direct at 5º Taurus yesterday. Take some time to revisit what came to your attention during the retrograde. Of course, the usual transportation woes, scheduling mixups, and electronic snafus likely occurred. For many, financial or physical topics surfaced. Earth signs turn our attention to health and wealth.
I was writing this newsletter on May 12 and pulled the heartbreak tarot card, the 3 of Swords, in reverse. Mercury was sextile stern Saturn. One thing to review is how you speak to yourself. Do your internal conversations cause you heartbreak? Mercury turned direct yesterday. Over the next few days, take notice of any negative self-talk, limited beliefs, and self-criticism. Can you speak to yourself with more love?
Often my clients have big goals but let Saturnian fears of failure stop them from trying. Expansive Jupiter moves into Taurus tomorrow until May 25, 2024.
