May 27 Mercury quincunx Jupiter
Gemini Moon still bopping away the only new aspect is a square from the Moon to Chiron in PISCES while under an already void od course Moon @ 1:46 am PDT.
Moon enters CANCER and comes home.
The mood changes to distinctly emotional, sentimental all about comfort food, nurturing, gathering with family or friends and feeding each other, caring openly supporting and offering emotional safety. Feelings are strong. Women and children are the focus. It is also an excellent planting time if you haven’t gotten your garden in yet, this is the last New Moon day.
Mercury in TAURUS quincunx Jupiter in LIBRA -NO BULLSHIT!
Mercury is our intellect, our brains, how we communicate and think. In earthy, sensuous Taurus we think from our bodies, our earthly desires not our detached minds primarily.
VENUS rules Mercury in TAURUS and she is in in her fiery warrioress Wonder Woman aspect right now, perfect timing for the Movie’s launch.
The large gas planet who we are getting rather up close to and personal with lately courtesy is also THOR in Nordic astrology wielding his hammer and lightning. He is the avenging Patriarchal jealous God of the Old Testament. In LIBRA JUPITER is wanting everyone to think he is nice and he is more conscious of his social position. But Jupiter exaggerates everything, blowing it up. So imbalance is also a problem now or too much socializing or flippant light frothy nothings.
This aspect can manifest in different ways.
Mercury is THE MAGICIAN #1 Tarot Card and JUPITER is THE WHEEL of FORTUNE #10
You can use the benefic powers of the focussed mind of Mercury to bring you expansion, optimism, luck, and happiness. But it will be a difficult struggle with a quincunx between earth and air elements.
You can use Jupiter’s really feisty temper with Mercury as a BIG MOUTH to shout out various earthy expletives or use social media to show your judgments and disapproval.
This aspect can really mess with your mind though. Mercury in Taurus is very focused on the practical everyday duties and stuff that needs to get taken care of. Big philosophy, studying history, the law, teaching, pontificating are all the things Jupiter loves to do, plus Travel, learn, inspire, teaching, these are lofty ideals. And of course, speaking the truth. So it may feel difficult to integrate grand belief systems into your everyday 9-5 humdrum life.
Jupiter is intellectual and Taurus is not. Taurus is totally sensuously embodied. Use Taurus’s slowed down body awareness to listen to your own head trips or inner dialogues would be very resourceful to enhancing your life. Practicing mindful meditation would do wonders.
The sign of Taurus is best described by the etymology of the word incarnation which means “in the flesh,” “in the meat (carne),” Taurus is the second sign where we incarnate into the meat body from Aries, the fiery Spirit. Our bodies are connected to everything, our minds, emotions our senses, and our spirits nothing is separate.
The Buddha is commemorated on the Full Moon in May as his birth, enlightenment and death date. Therefore the Buddhas life is TAURUS. The Buddha famously touched the earth, as his witness to his enlightenment indicating that being in the body is the very source of enlightenment.
Mercury in TAURUS is like a bull in the China Shop. Jupiter is in the Heavens hurtling lightning bolts. That combo can be very destructive.
Use this energy wisely. Tame the raging bull in your mind. Harness Jupiter’s positive trusting side. No matter how meaty, dirty and gritty things are in reality in your life or in the news, trust that justice and balance will be restored. Jupiter’s greatest gift is humor and faith.
