    This week the Moon emerges from the sudden darkness of last Sunday’s Annular Eclipse, creeping slowly toward early June’s Partial Lunar Eclipse and Venus transit.  It will be Mercury, the messenger, who escorts us through the strange terrain between eclipses.

Mercury starts off the week with Monday’s conjunction to Jupiter in Taurus, providing some help with the communication and travel difficulties that are part of the nature of this period.

Early Thursday morning, Mercury enters Gemini, joining the recently eclipsed Sun, the Tail of the Dragon, and retrograde Venus in the sign of the Twins.  Mercury is smart and fast in Gemini, speeding up communications and thought processes.  Mercury follows hot on the heels of the eclipsed sun, helping us find words for the rapid series of internal and external shifts occurring.  Mercury will move through this mutating zodiacal terrain until June 7th, when he enters Cancer.

Horoscopes are not a real chart reading by an experienced astrologer. They are fun and can be reasonably accurate, however. In addition to referring to your Sun sign, read from your Ascendant and Moon if you know them. If you don’t, find out! I’m a long time fan of the free chart generation software at astro.com.

    Apologies for the brevity of this weekly, folks. Didn’t have much time this week. Not only that, but we got handed so much last week, this one can hardly offer a comparable helping.
