Welcome, beautiful souls - to your astrology forecast for the week of May 18 - May 24!

It’s time to say goodbye to Taurus season. This week, the Sun begins its transit of Gemini on Thursday. With the Sun in this sign, we will have lots of ideas and want to explore our curiosities more. We may find ourselves opening up to people more easily, and be more than willing to just have a chat. Gemini energy can be slightly ungrounded, especially after being in pragmatic Taurus for the last weeks, so if you keep a to-do list, you’ll find yourself able to still get things done instead of being forgetful because your mind is being pulled in different directions.

We also have a New Moon Friday, also in Air sign Gemini. Gemini has an insatiable desire to learn and play, so we may find ourselves kicking off new goals that will bring some fun into our lives or we may find new hobbies that inspire and allow us to have a creative outlet. You will notice yourself feeling an influx of ideas during Friday, Saturday, and Sunday because both the Sun and Moon will be in Gemini. This is a good time to practice earthing and put your feet in the dirt to help ground all these ideas.

With four planets retrograde this week (Pluto, Saturn, Venus, and Jupiter), you may be experiencing situations that help you heal and reflect on a deeper level. Retrograde is all about seeing the truth in our behaviors and perspectives to sift out the unwanted energy, reinventing ourselves from the inside out. If you feel a little ‘stalled’ in your forward progress, embrace the opportunity to go within and rearrange the subconscious furniture!

We may see a lot of reorganizing on a global level when it comes to government organizations and plans to manage to ease the lock-downs. The good news is that while some old systems may crumble, the ones built in their stead will be more relevant and hopefully more inspirational.

Look for emerging new leaders with a history of impeccable humility, service, and compassion. We may even see spiritual leaders sought for their wisdom and insights to help cultures adapt to the stress of major global change and crisis. To summarize your astrology overview for this week concisely, globally and personally, we will be looking to find the spiritual depth to overcome stress and rise above conflict.
