Mercury and Mars are currently both retrograde, making this a great time to focus on introspection, inner work and the resulting awareness and insights for taking action when the time is right. Initiating physical action this week could leave you singing with Mick Jagger, “I can’t get no satisfaction”. (Mercury turns direct May 22nd and Mars on June 29th)
Also, energy is building toward a New Moon this Friday at 16 degrees Taurus (3:29pm EDT). This stimulates focus on personal resources, money and possessions, who and what we value, our creativity and our sense of self-worth. The stage is definitely set for inner work on these things.
This Taurus New Moon forms a grand earth trine with Jupiter in Virgo and Pluto in Capricorn. Take time to be outside, sit on the ground and let your electromagnetic energies balance, get in rhythm with the earth, dig your toes into the dirt, feel and breathe deeply these grounding energies. We need the added stability as we face changes and uncertainties that are going on personally and globally.
