Do you feel lost, in the dark, or confused about emotional situations in your life? Then this is the week to prepare yourself because secrets are being revealed, and hidden information is coming to light, helping you navigate those murky waters and find the light.

There’s a Full Moon and Lunar eclipse in the sign of Sagittarius on May 26th, bringing even more emotional and transformational energy than a typical Full Moon. In addition, this transit shines a spotlight on any issues that have remained hidden or covered, whether in relationships, situations, or even your career.

In the sign of Sagittarius, the Moon will be asking you to consider all the ways you can expand your mind, your experiences, and your worldview.

On May 29th, we have another major transit when Mercury goes retrograde, where it will remain until June 22nd.

This is a transit that gets a bad rap, but there’s actually quite a bit we can learn from it – as long as preparation is involved. During this transit, things like communication and interactions with technology can become more difficult.

So prepare yourself for the transit with lots of meditation, chakra cleansing, and working with aquamarine – a stone of communication that’s perfect for sailing through Mercury retrograde.

Mercury retrograde is also a great time for reflection – thinking about the past and healing past pains or traumas. This is a great time to take a break and let yourself heal.

May 24 - 30 is a Week to Reflect, Relax, & Heal

This Full Moon may bring big emotions to the forefront, but this will not cause major upheaval in our worlds; they’re merely there to guide you toward a path of healing. Try to lean into these feelings instead of avoiding them. Allow yourself to sink into them and learn from them.

This is a fantastic time to perform a Full Moon ritual, letting go of any grudges or upsets that you may have been burdened by in the last month.

Next, we couldn’t avoid this major transit, even if we wanted to.

Mercury retrograde returns in Gemini, providing us the opportune time to revisit, rethink, and reflect.

This transit encourages you to spend a little time with your head in the clouds, thinking about the lessons you’ve learned in this life and how you want to apply them. This is a great time to write about your thoughts and feelings, allowing yourself to contemplate.

If you’re feeling emotionally overwhelmed, a personalized astrological reading can help you find the balance you seek.
