We begin the week with the sun shifting into human design Gate 23, Assimilation, which carries the awareness and understanding that leads to acceptance of diversity.
Gate 23 is where inspiration as inner knowing is finally translated into language. Its amorality, acceptance of diversity, and ability to cut through mental intolerance opens the way for mutation to take hold in the world. Expression through the Gate of Assimilation initiates us into new ways of thinking.
On Tuesday Mercury, the planet of communication and logic, makes its second retrograde of the year - this time in the sign of Gemini. Mercury retrograde is a time to notice and reflect on old patterns when/if you see them reappearing. Ultimately it’s a time for realignment and gaining clarity around important matters in your life - most specifically, themes tied to the Gemini-ruled house in your natal chart. See below for your horoscope. Mercury will remain in retrograde motion until June 3, and will exit its post-retrograde shadow on June 18th. So until then, things may seem a little less structured. My advice is to practice extra caution with communication and technology, and try to maintain a sense of humor through it all - including any hiccups.
Also on Tuesday, Jupiter, the planet of expansion and adventure, enters Aries - revisiting an area of the sky (and our natal charts) not seen since 2011. As Aries is cardinal fire and associated with the ‘warrior’ - we can use these energies to navigate major shifts in our personal lives. Collectively, we can expect to experience themes of uprising in response to social friction.
Jupiter retrogrades back into Pisces October 28th, and then returns to Aries from December 20, 2022 until May 16, 2023. Take charge of your life, quit ruminating on the past. Focus on the present and future.
Then late Sunday night / early Monday morning, is the total lunar eclipse in the sign of Scorpio. This is first eclipse we’ve had in Scorpio since 2014. Scorpio deals with themes of shadow work, trauma, sex, power and death. Full moons are always a time symbolic of release, but considering this is a lunar eclipse conjunct the South Node - all energies are amplified. This lunar eclipse calls for a dramatic release of Scorpionic themes in your life - most specifically these are themes related to the Scorpio-ruled house in your chart.
Eclipses are portals designed to align us with our fate. Right now, individually and collectively, we are being asked to ascend towards the North Node in Taurus. This requires the releasing and working through of Scorpio and South Node energies. Release what is heavy in order to more easily rise.
This is an extremely fertile and potent energy, therefore I highly recommend booking a consultation if you feel called to do so. Book here.
Questions to ask self and journal prompts:
What old beliefs and trauma do I need to release in order to align with my fate?
Where could I benefit from additional clarity?
Where do I need to embody my inner warrior in order to navigate a challenge?
Ways to utilize the energy:
Notice what unpleasant or painful feelings arise this week - they’re guiding you to what needs releasing.
Work through uncomfortable feelings vs suppressing or numbing.
