Forecast for week of May 28- June 3, 2012
By Kathy Biehl
Messages and mental processes continue to take center stage this week . Cosmic messenger Mercury is hyperactive as ever, zooming through his home sign of Gemini and delivering data galore about what your heart wants and what you’re willing (or need) to do to get it.
He’s also dropping hints about May 20’s solar eclipse, the personal meaning of which is just beginning to take shape for each of us. Remain alert. Treat events and coincidences as messages. (One helpful and sometimes fun approach: What would this mean if it were written in a novel?) The universe and your higher guidance are broadcasting 24/7 these days, and their info is for the having if you will only turn your receiver on.
Some of this week’s activity is going to be a bit fractious. Fighting words will fly (or, at least, ones that spur folks to action) in the first half of the week, as Mercury and Mars enter the ring to go a round late Wednesday. The dust-up could affect any number of areas, since Mercury rules communication, transportation and vehicles for both. Technology disruptions and road rage are in this picture. Use the first as signals for needed repairs or upgrades, the second as a warning to steer clear.
Don’t fear it. This dynamism bodes well for breaking out of stuck places. Some information is going push you off the fence and send you running toward something you want. And what you want is certainly on your mind and in the air — and maybe, just maybe, within reach.
That’s because the planet that delivers messages and bouquets has his own extended date with the goddess of love on Friday. It’s a day-long extravaganza, with Mercury and Venus meeting on the ecliptic (by declination) as well as by zodiacal degree, a two-step that’s known as a super-conjunction. Hearts and minds are simpatico, aligned, on the same page, working as one — whatever concept of unswerving alliance works for you.
Their mutual admiration society creates an atmosphere of receptiveness to words from the heart, whether they’re declarations of love or a heartfelt clearing of the air. If you’ve been wanting to set things straight in a troubling situation, Friday’s ideal for finding the right words and having them go over as gently and well as possible.
The communication flow goes two ways. Notice who reaches out to you and what they say. The importance is not merely having pleasant conversations — though some will be pleasant to a wonderful extreme — but also arming you with information with very personal value. Who do you love? What do you love? Why do you love? Messages touch on all these questions. (Watch for gender issues, women’s rights and relationship/marriage items to be all over the news.) Some are going to have a retrospective feel, because of Venus being retrograde. Puzzle pieces could fall in your lap that explain why a certain situation played out as it did, and why that outcome is now a good thing for you.
Mercury and Venus’ special day is helping us amass info about the state of our relationships, bank accounts, self-worth and other valuables. That’s all funneling into the build-up to next Tuesday, when Venus meets and eclipses the Sun. Some of this information amounts to full-scale, even perspective-altering realizations and revelations, which are dropping and escalating in the build-up to next Monday’s Sagittarius Full Moon lunar eclipse. (Look for my mooncast on this site by Sunday.)
In the short run, this week is energizing, motivating and socially pleasurable. In the bigger picture, it’s also an exercise in data collection, heart and mind working together, each supporting the other.

Special reading rate for Gemini suns, moons and ascendants. Limited time only!
Monday: The day runs from chafing at limits and rules (overnight) to making a break for personal freedom. In between, there’s a choice to be made: are you acting from a position of power, or are you reacting to a power ploy by a person, an institution or one of your inner demons? Open the curtains. Open the windows. Open your mind. Let the sunshine in and your inner light out!
Tuesday: Realizations you’ve dodged take on clarity during the overnight hours, as dreams show you where certain arrangements can’t continue in their current form. Who you are now requires different terms and a different quid pro quo. The concept hangs in the air throughout the day. The pressure to act builds by evening. The challenge is greater than yesterday to step into your personal power before proceeding. Put away childish things and embrace adulthood. That choice will alone will drop pounds of baggage and make it easier for you to maneuver more effectively.
Wednesday: The daylight hours are relatively quiet, perhaps somber, with a naturally flowing focus on tending to tasks and taking care of business. Early skirmishes are likely to break out in the conflict between Mercury and Mars that’s on the evening’s agenda. Instead of getting mad, get motivated. Information is knowledge; knowledge is power. Act on it.
Thursday: Your emotional processes are getting on board with the heart/mind melding that’s coming tomorrow, when Mercury and Venus meet for their daylong date. Communication is already getting easier; interactions are already flowing more smoothly and harmoniously. This isn’t leading to pie-in-the-sky fantasizing. You’re viewing the concrete, down-to-earth realities, as it were, of yourself, your needs and your situations. Tending to obligations is grounding, actually, and prepares you for tomorrow.
Friday: Messages and information have been flying for two weeks now. Today they hit close to your heart. There’s tangible value in the flurry of messages, conversations, insights and realizations. Whether the upshot is financial or emotional, they’re delivering a benefit to you. Encounters should leave you feeling good about yourself, your prospects and the people you connect with today. Speak your heart. It’s got a direct link to your mind and mouth today, and words will come out right.
Saturday: The Moon makes a whopping nine aspects, but only one is major: a door-opener with go-getter Mars around 9 AM EDT. That offers an opportunity to jump with gusto into a day with lots of subtle undercurrents. They’re increasingly uncomfortable, morphing from inviting interaction and communication to stirring nervousness and compulsiveness. Remember: you’re collecting data. It’s all data.
Sunday: You can run, but you can’t hide. Consequences. Ramifications. Responsibilities. Practicalities. They’re facing you now, no matter where you turn. When you give up scrambling for an escape route (it’s futile), the day falls into place: Your mind calms and grounds. Ideas take shape. Information arrives. Important connections lock into place.
