Astrology MAY 9, 2016

The moon goes void-of-course/ voc* at 12:15 AM ET. Jupiter stations Direct at 8:16 AM; this is the turn that marks a renewed exuberance and optimism.

Over the next few months, Jupiter travels in Virgo in forward motion to retrace its retrograde path. For some of us, it may not be until early August when we feel the big push ahead. This comes after it is free and clear from the shadow of its backward march. Overall, delays and any tendency to pull back lose grip as the quest for expansion ignites once more.

A Venus/Neptune picture in the sky encourages loving kindness and even romance. Be aware of how you communicate or respond to any urgent communication; a Sun/Mercury occultation can heat up even the most benign of messages. Don’t get swept up in a misunderstanding.

Wait until the void passes instead of engaging without thinking it through. Once the Moon enters Cancer, it may be more apparent what point is being made, but not necessarily less volatile.

*Moon VOC/Void-of-Course… in Gemini, conversations can be particularly misunderstood; avoid important correspondence or phone calls. Gather information. Listen. Great time to clean out old emails and tidy up your desktop. More about the Moon VOC
