Mercury is the Focus for the Week!
This week the planet Mercury (in Aries) is in focus as well as a New Moon in Taurus. Mercury is known as the messenger planet. He both receives and transmits information depending upon the relationship he is in at the moment with the other planets. Be ready this week then for communication, ideas and information to flow to you and through you.
There is an exciting element to all of this communication as well, especially as we get to the end of the week and the New Moon in Taurus. If you’ve been taking note of what Mercury is delivering, then the new beginning implied by this new Moon should be an easy one for you. Taurus rules our values, finances, self-worth, and the practical, down-to-Earth expression of life. The potential is that you can really make some headway on whatever it is you have been working on. Just stay open, listen deeply, and let mind be guided by your inner voice.
Let’s break down the week day by day:
Monday, April 29, 2019 –
The Moon in Pisces today opens up our intuitive and creative channels, and we begin the week in a quiet place. Mondays with the Moon in Pisces are often the ones where we wish we had one more day to sleep in and be lazy. But today, the Moon and Sun come together to create an ease and flow to the day. Things may come together in miraculous and magical ways when we step back and allow. What may the day bring you? Relax and go with the flow and you just might find out!
Tuesday, April 30, 2019 –
The Moon is in Pisces all day today and conjuncts Neptune, squares Mars, sextiles both Saturn & Pluto, and squares Jupiter. Sounds like a lot packed into one day doesn’t it? Added to this is Mercury sextile Mars – read as more busy!
While the Moon’s connections today are many, they seem to be tuning us in and refining our antenna, so to speak. As this week has many Mercury connections (communication, the mind and more) this works to our advantage. Listen deeply and consciously to what is being whispered to you now. Meditate to quiet some of the busyness.
Mercury (Aries) sextile Mars (Gemini) – Today is a busy day, and you will find yourself wanting to work independently, especially if you are furthering work on a personal project! You find confidence in your ideas and beliefs which will help you take advantage of opportunities presented to you today.
Wednesday, May 1, 2019 –
The Moon moved into Aries this morning and the pace of the week seems to pick up a bit. Moon in Aries can make for impatience, interpersonal conflict, and possible rash thinking and action-taking. But, it is also a time for thinking in new and fresh ways. Be open to hearing what others are saying, especially if you are at the receiving end of someone’s irritation. There just may be something of value for you to hear. You don’t have to respond to anything anyone is telling you, just listen.
Mercury (Aries) square Saturn (Capricorn) – Mercury in Aries has been a busy and at times, an explosive deliverer of messages to us. Squaring Saturn, Mercury shows where we still have work to do in the restructuring and reformatting of our minds, beliefs and patterns.
Thursday, May 2, 2019 –
The Moon in Aries today is conjunct Venus and sextile Mars. Charm abounds and an atmosphere of love and desire allows for all sorts of pleasantries. Both the masculine and feminine are working in harmony and that stimulates creativity that can extend into the new Moon window of the weekend. Ask yourself this, “What more is possible for me?”
Mercury (Aries) square Pluto (Capricorn) – Don’t force your ideas or opinions on others today. Remember that these are things that you should be invited to share with others. Watch for compulsive thinking today. If you use the energy wisely, you will gain access to personal insights that help you move forward in your life.
Mercury (Aries) trine Jupiter (Sagittarius) – Today is a great day to look forward to the future and plan for those projects that support you moving forward. Commercial and business deals are favored today. It’s a great day for buying and selling as your mind is sharp and luck seems to be on your side!
Friday, May 3, 2019
The Moon is Void-of-course today from 1:47 am PT/3:47 am ET to 1:18 pm PT/4:18 pm ET. That means it is a slower day today. It won’t be a good day to start something new – besides we’re in the dark of the Moon – so clear off your desk, finish up what has been left undone or take some time to meditate! Once we get to the afternoon, the Moon moves into Taurus and the energy picks up just in time for the weekend!
The next couple of days can be solid launching ground for anything you choose to embark upon, especially if it’s down to earth to begin with. The time to be hasty or flighty has flown, the atmosphere favors practical beauty, the grace of being in touch with nature itself. Simplicity works, traditional fare is ever elegant.
Saturday, May 4, 2019
New Moon at 14° Taurus – 3:45 pm PT/ 6:45 pm ET/ 10:45 pm UT
The new Moon in Taurus favors grounded beginnings. That means that when our ideas, plans and actions are in alignment, magical manifestation can occur. We need to set powerful, emotionally connected intentions in the NOW.
Taurus is about the material world, money and abundance. It’s a good time to check in on how you are holding up financially. Do you need to set some new goals to be more solvent, or be a better steward of your money and resources? Remember that the financial markets play the long game and that means you may experience ups and downs, but it is patience that wins out. Don’t panic if you sense an approaching crisis, but take steps to ensure your security … not from FEAR mind you, but from a place of caution.
The Moon and Sun align with Neptune during this time, making us more receptive to hearing messages from our guides, angels, inner selves or other helpful humans in our lives. Be discerning and use your intuition to clear up any confusion your mind throws at you. Listen from deep within your soul.
Sunday, May 5, 2019
The Moon in Taurus today trines both Saturn & Pluto in Capricorn. There is a stability and power in the flow of energy today, but it is hidden by the Mars opposite Jupiter transit (see below). Remember that a solid foundation is required in order to support your efforts in the world, and destabilizing the foundation can lead to disastrous consequences, so build confidently and carefully.
Mars (Gemini) opposes Jupiter (Sagittarius) – Caution! Don’t overestimate your abilities, talents or the time it will take to do something today! There is luck to be had today in utilizing right timing to get what you want done. However, there is also the possibility of creating instability in your life if you do not stay within your own boundaries or limitations. This is a feel good day, and if you use the energy correctly, you will amaze others at how much you were able to get done!
I wish you all a fabulous week ahead! Remember I will be out of town from May 1-7 so the MetaCafe will be on hiatus until then.
