Monday’s void of course Moon from 1:05 pm Eastern Time suggests a day in which it seems as though nothing is getting done. Plus, the Sun is in the last degree of Taurus and Mercury is in the last degree of Taurus. There are many void-of-course energies today. Thusly, it is probably a good day to go out into the garden and enjoy a little nature or take the day off. Sometimes when we step back from our challenges, the unconscious steps in with solutions for things that seem unresolvable. Taking time away from a problem is often the best way to find a solution.
After the Sun and Mercury enter Gemini in the early morning hours of May 21, livelier energy appears, phone calls come in, texts get answered and a very different way of approaching a project shows up. This is a great week for networking, in person, with others, to catch up with friends, and share some of the issues bothering you, particularly on the 22nd when trepidation regarding one’s security may be lingering in the ethers. A long time ago I learned that those who share their financial planning or ideas with others prosper far better than those who keep things too close to the vest. A trusted friend or ally is what is needed during these times.
This coming weekend I am speaking at the Seattle conference NORWAC. The three topics I am covering are: Synodic Cycles (topic of my new book), Derivative Houses (Turning the Wheel), and a three hour pre-conference workshop on Fashion Cycles, something I have studied for years and years since I was doing costume design at Northwestern in Chicago many years ago. It has always been a first love of mine, and fascinating. I am finding out as I uncover the big historical changes in this industry that, again, as always history does repeat itself. The idea of working with fabrics, color are all very Taurus and with Uranus just moving into Taurus, waking up to our own personal designs, what we wear now versus what we wore ‘then’, is a great way to process other things. Cleaning out closets while trying to solve a problem, or, reworking something old into something newer looking is also a great way to change energies around. This can be closets as well as offices or work spaces or even gardens. Uranus in Taurus asks us to think about the beauty in our lives in a fresh new way and what a perfect time of year in which to do that.
