Micro-Forecast: April 30 to May 6, 2018

Yesterday was the Full Moon in Taurus and Scorpio. It was also the 90-days after the January 31 eclipse, a Total Lunar Eclipse in Leo and Aquarius. Issues facing us at the beginning of the year are now seeing the light of day. We gain insight in the three months or six months following the eclipses so that we can take effective action. This week puts a few more things in order as well since Mercury, the planet of travel, commerce and communications is catching up with where it left off back on March 22, 2018. For me, I am traveling with a group of friends in France these next two weeks exploring an entirely different world and diverse cultures.

May 1 is the day often celebrated around the world as Beltane or May Day Celebrations. In the United States, we have lost this custom, but it is still very much alive in many parts of the world. It is the half way point between Spring Equinox (March 20, 2018) and Summer Solstice (June 21, 2018). It is the point in the zodiac that affords us a few weeks to begin researching the new things that came in for us at Spring Equinox before finalizing our summer plans. With Mercury catching up to itself on Thursday May 3, you could hear from someone who was giving you a bid, or, people with whom you were conducting business who seemed to have gone away, come back. Things get back on track with this cycle and putting what you can put in order and in place now is suggested, because as we get closer to June, Mars, the planet of action and motivation, is beginning its retrograde from late June to late August.
