Hello friends!

It’s an exciting week from the Universe’s perspective with very little astrological weather on the docket to report. Last week left us manifesting but now, for the most part, it’s a nice and quiet week from Universe, and this gives you a chance to sit back and soak up some May Taurus Sun. As of this week, we have multiple planets in Taurus now – the Sun, Mercury, Uranus, and we’ve just come off of a New Moon in Taurus at the tail end of last week.

You may be thinking of some new beginnings in your life right now, and Taurus energy is going to give you the work ethic you need to not just plant some seeds, but see some exciting blossoms come about this summer.

The week starts off with Mercury entering Taurus on Monday, joining the Sun and Uranus here already. As the week progresses, we get a little snapshot of luck later in the week on Thursday. Taurus’ ruler Venus is also going to be hard at work this week trying to help you attract the opportunities and experiences you need to see long-term success in your life.

Pay attention to your big ideas and inspirations this week and in the coming weeks under this Mercury in Taurus influence. These ideas and inspirations are the ones you’ll need for the long haul. See them, recognize them, and then nurture them. Some may even be percolating for you already. What big ideas do you have about your life right now?

Monday, May 6

Sun: Taurus – Use your five senses to activate sensuality and live, laugh, love.

Moon: Gemini — Follow your intuition, and your good angel, when making decisions.


  • Mercury enters Taurus – Here we have communicator Mercury entering the Fixed sign of the Earth signs, Taurus, and this is going to set some communication channels on fire for your long-term path. When Mercury was in Aries, you had the fire lit under you to take the lead in your conversations and communications, and when Mercury enters Taurus you are going to see that fire slow down, and give way to committed and more long-term goals. Mercury in Aries was all about those fiery ideas. Mercury in Taurus is about getting to work on them, using communication as your guide. Be real in all of your communication efforts, in both work and love, and you will see them go the long haul.
