Weekly Horoscope: May 11 – May 17, 2020
The week starts off with a bang as Mercury (planet of communication) in the final degrees of Taurus angles toward Mars (planet of passion) in the final degrees of Aquarius. On Monday, Mercury then moves into Gemini where it’s very much at home. This can enhance communication and commerce in a great way.
Lively Mercury forges a positive aspect with Saturn (planet of foundation) on Tuesday, so if there are business matters to discuss, this is the time to discuss them. Dynamic Mars then moves into dreamy Pisces, where it isn’t so direct or decisive. This can lead to complacency or simply, a more passive-aggressive stance.
On the same day, Venus (planet of love) turns retrograde in Gemini for around six weeks, followed by Jupiter (planet of abundance) turning retrograde in Capricorn on Thursday and remaining so until September 12. And thanks to Saturn retrograde from last week, there’s going to be a slowing of affairs.
