It’s clean up time! The week begins with a harmonizing quarter moon on Monday, May 25. This one falls in efficiency expert Virgo’s realm, helping us set up savvy systems and lifehacks. Dismount the unicorn and deal with reality—before life gets egregiously messy or out of control. The devil is in the details, but so is a chorus of angels. By fine-tuning “the little things,” we can take our efforts from “meh” to “magical.” This quarter moon advises us to be more selective with ingredients we choose for cooking up our recipes for success. Are they sustainably sourced, consciously crafted, and manufactured with care and integrity? Invest a little more on quality this week, even if that means simplifying other aspects of the plan to keep the budget in balance. On the flip side, some of us have fallen prey to debilitating perfectionism. This quarter moon calms the obsessing and reminds us that it’s okay to make some mistakes along the way. That’s what the learning process is all about.
On Wednesday, expressive Mercury meets up with firebrand Mars—and in articulate Gemini, no less. Who wants to join the Debate Club? Everyone will have a strong opinion. Lively discussions are always fun, but keep it out of the Snark Zone. In Gemini, this pair of planets can fall prey to gossip or even some Mean Girl manipulations. Please…don’t go there. On a brighter note, there could be some truly dynamic duos born on Wednesday. Already part of a brilliant tag team? Put your joint efforts on display!
Neptune, Master Of Illusions, could make the extended weekend a little bit dodgy. On Friday, he’ll form a tricky square (90-degree angle) to messenger Mercury in Gemini, fogging up our thinking processes. This square makes it hard to see the big picture. Details may be obscured or even purposefully omitted from conversations. Rule of thumb: If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. The second showdown comes on Sunday as the Gemini Sun forms the same tangled angle to Neptune. With these two planets rumbling, we can fall prey to delusions of grandeur. But rather than strutting around like naked emperors, we’re more likely to think of ourselves as saviors, white knights, and “the only one who understands” a tortured soul. That need to be needed can lead us to make sacrifices we’ll later regret, ones that can create resentment or a codependent entanglement that’s hard to escape from. Help…air! But the squares can be healing, too. Neptune governs our subconscious while Mercury and the Sun rule our self-expression. We may finally screw up the courage to talk about our deepest fears or reveal our buried brilliance!
