Friday’s Gemini New Moon has just opened an 8 week eclipse tunnel from May 22 to the Cancer New Moon on July 20th. Starting next week on June 5th, there are not 2 but 3 wild card eclipses one after the other. When you emerge later in the summer, you’ll see how these sideways escalators – time/space shifts – have changed everything yet again, giving you an entirely new perspective on the virus and its outcomes.
There are now 6 planets/points in Air sign Gemini – Sun, Venus, Vesta, Node of Fate, Mercury- literally bringing a welcome breath of fresh air from the heavy Earth energy. It’s time to start extracting the learning from our recent passage through global events in Aries and Taurus. This is going to take until Autumn to process -there’s a huge difference between information -knowing something- and wisdom when information has been synthesized into your evolving inner map.
Gemini’s ruler Mercury is at his Tricksterish best/worst in his own sign this week in contact with unpredictable Uranus, slippery Neptune, Mars, the Galactic Centre, Vesta and the Node of Fate- the volatile eclipse degree of the approaching June 21st Solar Eclipse. On Thursday 28 May, the Messenger crosses the world axis into Cancer.
Expect more incoming data than ever before- a veritable Tower of Babel of crossed wires, misinformation, fake news along with new information/decisions from governments contradicting themselves.
In your own life, this is not about trying to make sense of anything – how could you when ,with all the retrograde planets and incoming multiple eclipses ,the ground is going to be pulled out from under your feet? This is about becoming even more skillful and adept at Inside/Out Thinking -understanding that your mind is not a camera but a projector with all the implications that brings.

A Potter at Work.
“You need to be prepared for spirit to do its great work here. And all the steps and stages, all the learning and growth are already part of a guided dance, instrumentally choreographed by those who know. This energy wants a return to what is natural, a restoring of ancient timeless ways. It seeks to manifest a remembrance and a re-dedication. There is this cosmic beholding power, a witnessing intelligence. The guidance is to join forces with the whole of humanity. Then what wants to come through will be popular, obvious, clear, the next place to go.”

There are currently 5 planets and points in Gemini lighting up your angle of communication like downtown Broadway.

Then June 5th’s eclipse across this part of your chart will kick off a year when life speeds up rapidly and you’re busy wheeling and dealing, negotiating, making contracts. What interests you is going to change quite noticeably as you decide to study or investigate something intriguing outside your comfort zone. Your mind is going to be buzzing with ideas about life switches in the aftermath of the virus, especially where travel is concerned. You may trade expensive holidays for exploring your own region or city.

Cancer Weekly Forecast: May 24-31, 2020
The planets are gathering in the deepest most hidden part of your chart, Cancer- a sign that it’s time to slow down the pace of your life, to restore and renew yourself and to refresh your hopes and dreams. Frame this a personal retreat, a time to journal your dreams, to notice what and who’s leaving your life, what is outworn and outgrown and what is summoning you on. Next week the first eclipse across this part of your chart will prove how important it is to take a step back and re-group. Your wellbeing is paramount and you’ve taken a mental, emotional, physical and spiritual battering in the last 18 months.
Quieten your mind so you can hear the wisdom of your unconscious.

Virgo Weekly Forecast: May 24-31, 2020
Frame events this week as a preview of what next week’s lunar eclipse across Sagittarius /Gemini might deliver. As a Virgo, this is one of those rare moments when five planets are shining brightly at the very pinnacle of your chart. Think of it as being on stage with the spotlight trained on you, making you ultra -visible. Translated, this means that everything you do will be noticed much more than usual. So, if you are cutting corners, not such good news but if you’ve been quietly doing due diligence, expect rewards or at the very least, recognition. And there could be a sprinkling of romantic fairy dust too as Venus aligns with seductive Neptune 3 times in your angle of long term partnerships.
Seize the day.
Libra Weekly Forecast: May 24-31, 2020
With Air as your Libran element, you need constant input to stimulate your thinking. Lucky you-this week there are 5 planets gathered in fellow Air sign Gemini downloading more data than even you know what to do with. It will be a veritable Tower of Babel-incoming new information from the government, later contradicted, fake news, misinformation all mixed in with some important insights. Be ready for a lunar eclipse in this same part of your chart on June 5th by slowing down to listen to the small persistent voice of your own guidance above the cacophony of noise for the outside. It’s time to think for yourself, throw out old limiting beliefs and make a deliberate effort to broaden your horizons.
Expanding your map of the world.
Scorpio Weekly Forecast: May 24-31, 2020
Both your home and your personal security are high on the planetary agenda. Of course, these are always inextricably tied together but it’s all too easy to go along in the same old way for years keeping things as they are, not noticing what ‘s outworn or outgrown or just not relevant any more. The gathering of 5 planets in your 8th House of money, assets and resources is in Air sign Gemini-you’re being nudged to get more innovative and up to date with how you manage your resources to reduce that nagging sense of insecurity. Are you missing out on savings or living in a place that doesn’t work for you? Are you in debt or undervaluing what you have to offer and under earning? Next week’s June 5th eclipse will change circumstances around you so that you have to think outside the box.
Whose rules are you living by?
Sagittarius Weekly Forecast: May 24-31, 2020
There is currently a gathering of 5 planets in your opposite sign of Gemini ,meaning that your most important relationships are going to be under the spotlight in some way. Luckily, beautiful Venus is spending until late June here, helping to smooth the path of true love. Gemini is always about new information so expect to hear or learn something now that puts everything into a new light. If you’re dealing with work colleagues virtually or at arm’s length at the moment, expect to have to be extra flexible and responsive, rather than reacting in the moment. Next week’s June 5th’s eclipse is going to fall right across your sign and so a changing of the guard is on the horizon.
This is a time when everything you do or say can make a difference.
Capricorn Weekly Forecast: May 24-31, 2020
Since March 21st, your ruling planet Task Master Saturn has been in Aquarius, your angle of income and resources. As this aligned in time with the pandemic lockdown, you’ve had to take account of factors beyond your control to try to stay on an even financial keel. The Master Teacher is heading back into Capricorn until December to start a 6 month phase of cleaning up old business and tying up loose ends. You’ve had peek into a new world of more progressive options and now you realise that you need to clear the decks so that you can update your systems and uplevel your service or business. Alongside that-and equally important-the gathering of 5 planets in Gemini is a reminder not to neglect your health and wellbeing .
Eclipses impact your energy field and the one on June 5th is right around the corner.
Aquarius Weekly Forecast: May 24-31, 2020
Since March 21st when Master Teacher Saturn returned to Aquarius for the first time since 1991,you’ve begun to realise that certain parts of yourself, habits that were seemingly crystallised or cast in stone, could change, deconstruct and liberate you from feeling stuck in a life that didn’t feel like it belonged to you. Just notice if you’ve stopped automatically resisting outside influences, releasing some of the inner stress that you’d come to believe was with you for life. Now that Saturn is retrograde, allow yourself to live along with your world as it reconfigures. Meanwhile, all the activity in compatible Air sign Gemini is nudging you to make everyday life more beautiful, more meaningful, more in sync with what you value the most. Turn wherever you live into a space that reflects who you are now – you need it as a mirror of your emerging self.
Coming home to yourself.
Pisces Weekly Forecast: May 24-31, 2020
In recent years, with so much focus on your career, your role in the world, you’ve felt somewhat exposed, highly visible and extremely accountable. The gift that it gave you was to install a solid sense of all the ways you add value to your community and your workplace, so that you no longer undervalue yourself. The current astrology is shifting the emphasis to your home and what it means to you- from your physical space to your sense of belonging. Questions arise such as: Is where I live where I want to be or just a stop gap measure? How can I make this place more comfortable and more suited to my lifestyle? What and who gives me real sense of belonging and how can I have/create more of it?
Are you putting down roots or transplanting yourself?
