The Moon continues its transit of Virgo until 10:03 AM EDT, and its trine to
Mercury before going void at 8:24 AM is good for busy work and communications.
The Moon is in Libra from 10:03 AM forward, and balancing our personal
desires with those of another is likely to figure strongly now. "Paralysis by
analysis" could be an issue, as the tendency to weigh all perspectives and to
consider all possibilities can leave us sitting on the fence, afraid to make a
definite decision, but in the hours surrounding the Moon's sextile with Saturn
late afternoon, we are more clear-headed and equipped to make plans. Moderating,
negotiating, and compromise are themes. Mercury enters Gemini tonight, where it
will transit until July 8th - longer than usual due to Mercury's upcoming
retrograde in Gemini from May 18-June 11. When Mercury is in Gemini, we are
especially communicative, curious, and sociable. Mercury feels right at home in
Gemini, one of the signs that it rules. We are especially astute when it comes
to arguing or making a point. We are attracted to wordplays, puns, and
negotiations. We are easily distracted.
