Weekly Astrology Forecast: May 3 - 9, 2021

Two people stand holding each other and watching the stars.

Have you been craving exciting communication that brings deeper bonds to your personal connections? Then you’re in for a treat because the planets are bringing increased communication, enhanced cognitive abilities, and heightened imagination this week!

On May 3rd, Mercury – the planet of communication, information, and ideas – moves into Gemini, where it feels rather cozy as the ruling planet of this sign. When Mercury moves into Gemini, our ideas, communication, and mental abilities soar, infused with quick wit and adventure. This influence encourages you to open your mind to new ideas and new ways of thinking, helping you step out of any rut you might have felt stuck in recently.

Your relationships are enhanced further on May 5th, when the Pisces Moon is in harmony with Mars in Cancer.

This transit gives you a boost of courage, especially when it comes to beginning or maintaining connections. This is not the time to keep your mouth shut, but to push forward and put yourself out there.

And on May 8th, we get an even bigger boost when Venus – the planet of love and beauty – also moves into stimulating Gemini.

Gemini is quite a flirtatious sign, bringing an air of lightheartedness and fun to our romantic endeavors. However, you may find yourself questioning your choices or decisions, making grounding exercises like meditation crucial during this transit.

May 3 – May 9 is a Week to Speak Your Mind & Engage Your Intellect

Your mind is on fire with ideas, your wit is sharp, and your socialization skills are amplified this week – making it a week for some introspection, conversation, and a bit of fun. Emotions are light, making it easier for you to see things from an objective point of view – meaning that conversations can run smoothly without an abundance of intense emotional energy.

Don’t hold your thoughts back right now; be brave and share them with others.

This isn’t the time to be shy or avoid certain conversations. You’re thinking more clearly than ever, especially when it comes to what you want out of life. Try connecting with your thoughts and allowing them the expression they deserve this week.

If you have a hard time being open and honest with your ideas, a personalized astrological reading can help you let go of any fear or inhibitions.
