This weekend’s Pisces Moon put many of us in a dreamy head space and brought forth some of the areas we need to re-examine during the 2020 Retrograde Season. The retrograde cycles of Pluto, Saturn, Venus, and Jupiter will continue to heavily influence us over the next six weeks. The cosmos is asking us to re-flect, re-consider, re-negotiate, re-juvinate, and re-align during these re-trogrades. Even though we’ve put put on “pause” already, we are being challenged both individually and collectively to re-turn to the table and consider what we might have overlooked, what we still need to overcome, how we can better heal ourselves, and to deal with the “elephants in the room” refusing to be swept under the rug.

2020, believe it or not, is a year filled with possibility and ripe with the potentially for re-birth and re-invention. The Retrograde Season that just kicked off last week is reminding us we still have more work to do and messes to clean up before we can re-emerge and be whole. On a collective level, we are still struggling for answers to serious questions and wondering how to re-build our communities and economies. On a personal level, we are still struggling with the confrontation of ourselves, our relationships, our life path, and the darkness that exists within ourselves and others. This week is a taste of the collective and personal confrontations we are being presented with over the next six weeks / during Retrograde Season. Although nothing is impossible this year, we’re being asked to “pause” in a variety of ways so we can personally and collectively heal and build something more equitable and lasting. The elephants in the room must be confronted, and if you don’t choose to pull up the rug yourself you might find the rug swept out from under you. It’s a “Choose Your Own Adventure” year, and the cosmos is encouraging you to swim with the tide rather than against it and to truly take the time and re-flect as needed. It’s a complete contradiction to the current situation and natural urge to move forward, but with so many celestial in backwards motion we just don’t have the cosmic support to power forward. The cosmos wants us to go back and re-view the details, consider what we are missing, confront the darkness on both a global and highly personal scale. It’s a waiting game, and we’re being asked to sit in the dark and finish up unfinished business so when the light overpowers the dark on Summer Solstice we can emerge into full light and build a life for ourselves that will truly last and offer far more balance and freedom while also re-aligning us with our path.

We have to go backwards along with the four celestial in our solar system currently “moving backwards” in order to truly move forward.

MONDAY, MAY 18: The Aries Moon urges us to move out of the daydream and into action, but action isn’t always possible during the Retrograde Season. The key to the beginning of the week is to pace yourself and to fight yourself rather than fighting with others.

TUESDAY, MAY 19: Mercury moves into the Gemini constellation and meets up with Venus at the same 21 degree relationship angle Venus held when she went into retrograde last week. Pay attention to all of your personal relationships today and where your internal dialogue and external conversations go. There’s a strong chance the topics and theme arising today are connected to what the planet of love and money wants you to focus on and overcome while she is in retrograde motion (until June 25). Mars (our action planet) favors acts of kindness and healing today.

WEDNESDAY, MAY 20: Welcome to GEMINI SEASON! The Twins have an amazing 2020 kick-off party planned with the Sun moving into Gemini and meeting up with Venus, Mercury, and a lunar node already in the twin constellation. In this “Choose Your Own Adventure” year, we can either choose the lower expression of this Gemini energy and act in duplicitous and shallow ways, or choose the higher expression and seek deeper connections while embracing the duality in ourselves and in others. Will we share gossip or will we share helpful and resource information? Will we be the “good twin” or the “evil twin?”

THURSDAY, MAY 21: The Moon in the earthy Taurus constellation and brings us some much-needed grounding as the Gemini Season party has lifted us all up in the air. Mercury’s conjunction to Venus today allows our head and heart to merge and be on the same page, and Mercury’s square to Neptune has us investigating any deceit or illusions we might be clinging to.

FRIDAY, MAY 22: The Moon feels left out of the Gemini Season kick-off party and is in a Void of Course (VOC) in the early morning before joining the Gemini party around 8:30 a.m. U.S. central time. This NEW MOON IN GEMINI is the late arriving guest to the party and forms a conjunction with the Gemini Sun before trining Jupiter and expanding the Gemini party and good vibes well into the night. The Sun is also in a harmonious position with Saturn giving us a realistic outer expression and the ability to build new systems, projects, and habits that last.

SATURDAY, MAY 23: The Moon offers us healing vibes with its sextile to Chiron while Mars’ alignment to Uranus encourages us to take a chance, make a step forward, and be adventurous and social.

SUNDAY, MAY 24: Have you decided which Gemini adventure you will choose? Today, take stock of the “good” and “evil” twins in yourself and in the people around you. Are you seeing yourself, others, and personal situations for what and who they really are? It’s easy to be deeply attracted to the fantasy and the illusion right now, and it’s also easy to overlook common sense due to a strong stirring and desire to connect with others at this time. Step aside and take stock today and make sure you understand all the players and the game.

“Be kind, rewind!” is the message from the cosmos this week as three planets join Pluto in retrograde motion and the emotional intensity of last week’s Super Full Moon in Scorpio continues to influence us.

MONDAY, MAY 11: Saturn – already in the Aquarius constellation – moves into retrograde as Mercury squares Mars; suggesting restrictions on both thinking and acting. In the Capricorn constellation, the Moon merges with Pluto and causes us to dwell on deep and dark matters while its fellow luminary – the Sun – sextiles Uranus and brings unexpected and possibly disruptive information to the table.

TUESDAY, MAY 12: “The Messenger” planet Mercury is in the Gemini constellation and forming a trine to Saturn as its moved into retrograde in Aquarius. This is a lot of Air energy and our thought process are connecting up with the future systems and realities possible when Saturn moves into its final Aquarian position on the Winter Solstice. Pay attention to your thoughts and any messages that come your way today, because there’s a good chance you’re receiving data related to where you need to go next and/or about something important you’re overlooking and need to review.

WEDNESDAY, MAY 13: Venus comes to a complete standstill in Gemini as the planet of love and money moves into Retrograde. Find out what this retrograde means to you in “Venus Loves You In 2020.” This retrograde takes place on the relationship degree (21 degrees) so today marks the beginning of many weeks where you will be asked to re-examine all of your relationships – friends, lovers, business, family, and (perhaps most importantly) your relationship with yourself. Mars also moves into Pisces and in this position we face a conflict with freedom. This is, sadly, an ironic conflict at this time considering we are dealing with issues related to human rights and justice, as well as dealing with personal freedoms at risk throughout the globe since the “solution” presented involves tracking every moment (the opposite of “freedom”), and millions are sheltering in place and questioning how and when they will move freely in their daily lives.

THURSDAY, MAY 14: While the 2020 Retrograde Season is asking you to love yourself, Mars’ entrance into Pisces is asking you to confront freedom (or lack thereof) and also to to confront yourself. This confrontation is supported by last weeks’ Super Full Moon in Scorpio where we are provided with the courage to confront the dark side of ourselves and others, as well as all of the skeletons in the closet. This lunar energy will last for weeks, and Mars in Pisces supports the same theme and emotional confrontation. Many will feel like burning the old down so they can re-emerge like a Phoenix – but this, of course, requires sorting through what to burn and what to keep. Challenge yourself to sort through your emotional closets, and know the cosmos is supporting you and providing the mental health needed to confront it all.

FRIDAY, MAY 15: The Sun trines Pluto and wants to shine a light on what is dark, what needs destroyed, and any deceit needing exposed. Mercury trines Chiron providing a wonderful time for emotional conversations and healing. This is a solid day to work things out with someone you’ve been having difficulty with. Jupiter moves into Retrograde in Capricorn providing a chance for many to expand their thinking, skills, and deepen their spirituality over the next few months.

SATURDAY, MAY 16: The Sun joins Mars and Neptune in Pisces while Venus is forming a square to Neptune that will last for the next week. While all of this Pisces energy can help us explore the depths of our subconscious and continue to sort through the skeletons in the closet, it is placement that is also conducive to escapism, addiction, and wanting to live in fantasy rather than reality. Strive for realism and responsibility today, but allow yourself some time to daydream and dig deep. Pay attention to your dreams tonight.

SUNDAY, MAY 17: The Sun moves into a harmonious position to Saturn while the “Lord of Karma” and “Father of Time” is in the quirky Aquarius constellation in a retrograde motion. This trine position lasts until Monday, and suggests more downloads/insight/data coming in as to how you can better align on your path and re-oriented yourself moving forward.
