May 2018 - Your boisterous ruler Mercury squares quiet, introspective Pluto (retrograde) on May 7, which really throws off your communications game. While you’re usually confident with your words, you get defensive and/or have a hard time taking a joke during this transit. The eighteenth brings a favorable Mercury-Saturn (retrograde) trine, giving you the opportunity to work through some of the love-related decisions you’ve been putting off. These practical planets help you make your choices based more on what is than what you wish could be. Mercury is comfortable in Gemini on May 29, and your curiosity about someone new reaches a peak. Ask as many questions as possible when you’re together.
