In the aftermath of the Scorpio lunar eclipse, doors are blowing open that before were sealed shut or where there were none at all. This is a high energy week as Mars crosses the politically sensitive World Axis before bursting into his own sign of fiery Aries for the first time since July 2020. On Sunday 29th, when the warrior conjuncts expansionist Jupiter, things will start to really pop.
Expect to feel a fresh, exciting, invigorating, can-do, pioneering blast of action-oriented energy – just be careful not to get too carried away or take big risks, as Mercury remains retrograde until June 3rd and has returned to near the eclipse degree in Taurus. There’s still important information to be revealed around the Gemini New Moon on May 30th.
On the 28th, Venus enters her own sign of Taurus square Pluto in fellow Earth sign Capricorn-if you want something badly enough, you need to make it happen, to move towards it.
Remember: Skilful Will always trumps Strong Will.

A cup overflowing with clear water.
“Magic if you are ready and willing to stand there and allow all of existence to stream and pour through you. It will activate the forces of magic, the return of wonder, and the feeling for what can be. Unable to contain yourself one moment longer. So enthusiastic and alive that you must find kin, playmates to go places with and cut loose together. A state of being that begs to be shared, that must be spoken, invoked, and honoured. It is the release point for a flood of new impulses, and when given full momentum, it rallies, inspires, sets the world on fire.” – Elias Lonsdale
