This month is like medicine: Take the dose, even if it’s yucky, and voilà! You feel better. Our cosmic medicine is a big patch of turbulence that starts the month. It’ll bring up and shake out all manner of emotional residue from the rockiness of the past two months. Don’t fight it. You’re detoxing. What’s up for purging may have the emotional maturity of an infant, all the more reason to get it out of your system.
After the first weekend, moods improve. Life continues to have its challenges — no happily ever after, okay? — but we have the vim and resolve and gosh-darn optimism to face most anything. Multi-tasking is epidemic, and people will be jumping up from their desks and running here and there at the slightest invitation. TLC is in the air, and most of the month we’re trading off who’s the mommy and who gets to be the baby. Socializing centers more than usual around sharing meals; comfort food is a menu staple from the 7th on.
Watch for openings to get somewhere, finally, on pretty much everything. There will be moments of hearing no, hitting walls and discovering the limits of our reach and energy. This is especially true May 21-23, when you may feel like a vast conspiracy is preventing you from getting your way. These moments are cues not to push harder, but to stop and do something nurturing for yourself. (Seriously. I challenge you.) Largely, though, action will not have the cloak of futility that dogged us all winter. You’re likely to accomplish more with an easy and lightness that has escaped you for months.
The end of the month brings productive shakeups. They free your perspective and spring you from a personal prison, force you to confront a misunderstanding or outright lie, and lead to a new level of self-awareness and acceptance. You’ll be at one with yourself. And maybe with a bowl of Rocky Road ice cream, too.
Talk and Travel Advisory: The year’s second communication-caution time begins on the 18th, when Mercury turns retrograde until June 11. If you’ve been following AstroFlash for a while, you know the drill: Demons possess technology; messages get garbled; traffic snarls; misunderstandings abound. This time, he’s backtracking in Communication Central, his home sign of Gemini, so the possession, snarls and misunderstandings could be more fast, furious and baffling than usual. Don’t be like so many people who know a tiny bit about astrology; don’t freak. Be proactive and prepared. Double-check information. Follow up if calls, texts or email go unanswered. Allow extra time for getting around. And look for opportunities to back track, pick up dropped information and clean up some old business.
