Waning Trine between the Aquarius Moon and Gemini Sun (2 deg)
Sun in Gemini square Black Moon Lilith in Pisces (2 deg)
Mars in Cancer square Chiron in Aries (5 deg)
Mercury in Gemini sextile Chiron in Aries (5 deg)
Issues from yesterday’s square between Mercury in Gemini and BML continue as the Sun energizes the difficult conversations or mixed messages. Lilith gets the spotlight in a way that illuminates the crisis between taboo women’s issues and hard choices. Perhaps no option seems favourable, or you’re torn between keeping things light versus acknowledging the dark issue that oozes between the lines.
The Waning Trine can help - this is an aspect of sharing and understanding. An open minded, somewhat detached approach can facilitate cooperation - others will respond favourably to potentially disruptive info if you deliver it cooly and calmly. Give them the option to disagree.
Mars/Chiron adds another twist, as actions/anger/sexuality trigger painful moments. Feelings of vulnerability can be particularly intense, and it will be difficult to not make the wrong move. It will seem like everyone (including you) is easily bruised. Fortunately, Mercury is also aspecting Chiron, but it’s making an easy sextile. Talk about what hurts; keep it light, explore multiple solutions, but keep talking and asking questions.
This is also an encouraging aspect for the squares to BML, suggesting that yesterday’s difficult messages can be sorted with a mix of logic and empathy. You’re touching on what hurts and looking at the facts, but you’re not pressing down on it.
Gemini season is upon us at last. A time, here in the Northern hemisphere, when thoughts turn to the seaside, summer, the open road. This year that Gemini feel is just a little bit stronger, since lithe Mercury, Gemini’s ruler, and the Sun jump into the sign hand in hand, and Mercury will be here until June 4. Why not engage with that Gemini vibe — even if you’re a deep-dyed Scorpio, or a caustic Capricorn? So here are some suggestions to get you started. Remember: fun, wit and feather are Gemini words. Text, email, phone your siblings. You never know, […]
On my post Why Are Millennials So Disillusioned?, there was some great discussion in the comments, and the topic eventually turned to Gen Z. Opinions ranged from feeling they are the best hope for humanity to feeling they are ruthless, … Read More...

There may be misinformation about sexual issues or gossip about the other woman/unacceptable woman. There will be a multiple sides to her story, which can be confusing. Perhaps you’re having trouble focusing on a BML issue (a destructive attraction or taboo subject) - are you avoiding a truth or spinning distracting lies?
Here is the gentle nudge forward. Uranus in Taurus’ major update of habits/resources/values can help you act on a nurturing or family matter. It’s time to take action and initiate changes, but you don’t have to move abruptly or take big risks. Slow and steady as you step into new territory.
Continuing the forward theme, the Cancer North Node is activated by release, forgiveness, acceptance or imagination. If you open yourself up to an ending or new experience, you may feel a gentle pull towards something that feels right. “Feel” is the key word, because the Cancer North Node is about what resonates emotionally.
Today on Stars Over Washington I am featuring this morning's post just published to my general astrology blog Jude Cowell Astrology titled Mars in Aries 2020: That Fighting Spirit which mainly concerns the frustrating squares that transit Mars will form to karmic planets Saturn and Pluto in 2020, dates included.If you're up for it, that is.
Mercury enters Gemini on May 21st. Gemini increases the amount of information that’s exchanged due to the speed and ability to understand the duality of all situations. Mercury is strong in the sign it rules, so all words and ideas have an edge.
Messages will be quick and sharp (Mercury in Gemini has a mischievous side due to increased curiosity). If you receive a compliment, assurance or answer, you may wonder if you detect a smirk or a light bit of teasing. If you think there’s more to it, there probably is- Mercury in Gemini often has a double message.
This transits asks “What would happen if…?” This is not sentimental energy- it’s bright, light, edgy and witty.
Not everything you hear will be solid. Some of it will be conjecture. Some of it will be half-truths. You’ll need to sift through the sound bites and discern which facts are keepers. Be prepared to think on your toes and don’t blindly accept everything you learn.
Here are the aspects Mercury in Gemini will make:
May 21st: conjunction with the Sun (0 deg)
May 22nd: square Black Moon Lilith (2 deg Pisces)
May 23rd: sextile to Chiron in Aries (5 deg)
May 25th: opposite Ceres Rx in Sagittarius (8 deg)
May 26th: trine Pallas in Libra (10 deg)
May 29th: square Neptune in Pisces (18 deg)
May 30th: inconjunct Saturn Rx in Capricorn (19 deg)
May 30th: opposite Jupiter Rx in Sagittarius (20 deg)
May 31st: inconjunct Pluto Rx in Capricorn ( 22 deg)
