We begin the week with the sun in Gate 8, Contribution, which carries the energy of contribution, rebellion and authenticity. This gate highlights our ability to make a contribution to the world through our radical authenticity. It carries the awareness and understanding that leads to acceptance of diversity.

Having just experienced a total lunar eclipse in the opposite Gate of 14, we are being asked embody our skills and authenticity in order to be of service and make a contribution.

On Wednesday May 18th, Mars (planet of action and ruler of Aries) joins Neptune (planet compassion and spirituality). This is a great energy for tapping into your inner spiritual warrior, and closing out any outdated narratives or storylines. Mars will enter its home sign of Aries on May 25th signalling a powerful new beginning and supercharging of our personal identity. So make the shifts now!

On Friday the Sun enters Gemini kicking off the season of curiosity and socializing. This will bring an energetic shift, however Mercury (Gemini’s rulers) is still retrograde - so this is still an energy for revising and allowing all contrast to provide clarity.

Then on Sunday, Mercury retrograde dips back into Taurus - helping us find clarity in some of the confusion experienced the past few weeks, and helps us ground it into practical applications going forward.

Questions to ask self and journal prompts:

  • How canI practice radical authenticity?

  • What gifts do I need to share with the world? (Be of service)

  • Where could I benefit from additional clarity?

Ways to utilize the energy:

  • Mix things up and gain new experiences.

  • Pick back up and revise an old project.

  • Continue revising outdated narratives and embody the energy of the new.
