hidden insights

Hidden Insights predicts a busy week for the entire planet as seven strong aspects align in the heavens, paired with one planet changing signs. The week kicks off with Mars opposing Jupiter on Sudnay, 5 May, which brings drive and enthusiasm, with a general can-do attitude.

On Monday, Mercury shifts signs and moves into Taurus. Mercury’s ingress into a new sign triggers a shift in the collective mind and affects how we communicate with one another. In Taurus, our minds cool off from its time in Aries, and communication becomes grounded. For the next few weeks, it will be easier to fall back on old and comfortable ways of thinking. Now is the time to focus on one thing at a time and do it well.

Venus makes a square to Saturn on Tuesday, making it difficult for people to express how they feel. There is a sense of emotional withdrawal, and it is not a good day for romantic expression. Wednesday’s conjunction between Mercury and Uranus promises to spice up the week with sudden strokes of genius. Surprising announcements and shocking slips of the tongue are possible now.

Thursday brings the most active day of the week from Venus, who makes a lovely trine with Jupiter and a harsh square with Pluto. These conflicting aspects can really wreak havoc on the way we interact with others. Inflated egos, and aggressive postures of aggression rule the day. Power struggles are also promised, making it difficult to work effectively with others right now. This intense energy continues through Friday, and if we are not careful the desire to dominate and control others can destroy more than one relationship.

A wave of stable energy washes over the Earth on Saturday, when the Sun makes a productive trine to Saturn. Here we can cool our heels from an intense week, and begin to feel grounded again. Weekends are typically reserved for relaxation and play. However, this weekend is ruled by the need to organize, take responsibility, and practice patience.

Astro Homework

Avoiding the stress of this weekís harsh squares may not be avoidable, but we can learn to work with the energy. As the world is feeling defense, and at worst combative, challenge yourself to only observe, and exercise silence.

On Saturday, spend time outdoors, and walk on the ground barefoot, if possible. This will help you connect with the Sun trine Saturn energy, and release the excess fire from the week.

A busy travel day is promised on Sunday, 5 May or Monday, 6 May as you prepare to get yourself ready for the week ahead.

Wednesday presents a financial hiccup, and you will need to be certain none of your money is missing.

If you supervisor others, be careful not to offend or abuse their good nature. It’s only natural for you to take charge, but you don’t have to act like a dictator to do it.
