starcodes for the week of may 6-12, 2022
we maybe at a familiar place onna spiral as mercury stations to turn retrograde, b'we’re not goin back. note the differences this time round and build momentum towards the future, whether this is a personal issue or bout women’s rites. stories of the past ‘d trigger old personal or cultural traumas that still need work, mars in pisces can cutout us feeling overwhelmed, but venus and jupiter in aries reΨ us that we're truly fierce and ready to move forward.
moods can fluctuate confusingly like spring weather this week cause the planets give us so many ≠ signals; in a challenging moment that tension can scatter us in 5 directions, in a good moment they can balance each other out and cutout us standing inna center. so let’s break down the influences and how t'work w'dem.
the sun in earthy taurus encourages us to plant and sow, √ and grow, though the rest of the planets ‘ve other work in Ψ. when the existential whirlwinds pick up we can tune into that taurus earthiness and work or wander inna garden. this waxing moon is wandaful time to plant seeds- pticularly vegetables on fri under the cancer moon and nxt tue through fri for herbs and floers under the waxing virgo and libra moons. our Ψs and politics may get confused this week, but our hands will know wha’ to do.
mercury retrogrades on tue in its own nervy and verbal sign of gemini. a gemini mercury normally speeds up our conversation and helps us multi-task but this stationary mercury can cutout us spinning our wheels or spacing out. it ll'be easy to drop ball, to mar boldly into to the kitchen and forget why we’re there, send an email to the wrong person, or misconstrue some primordial piece of information, so let’s stay alert and follo through with care.
expansive jupiter joins venus in feisty, fierce aries on tue and amps up the power of femi9 divine. expect intense flashes of temper round wha’ we ♥, hate, and care bout. this venus cannelp us respond to the emergencies of wildfires with grace and efficiency and to attacks on women’s rites with power but can also ‘ve us react to a minor problem as if it’s a conflagration unless we modul8. mars now in pisces can cutout us easily hurt or overwhelmed unless we handle one problem at a time at a time. yet with all these planets together we can create brave radical acts of compassion.
jupiter stays in aries til it retrogrades back into pisces in oct. jupiter in aries screams for liberation and fans the fires of many ≠ kinds. jupiter in aries calls for liberating action but doesn’t bring agreement on wha’ that means. think on this-wha’ truly brings freedom.
fri ‘d waft with some bittersweet emotions, our search for safety can push against our desire to connect compassionately under a busy cancer moon. ‘oer the weekend a leo moon encourages are extraversion and action orientation. but to really refill our wells we nd'2 hear wha’ we need an honor that, rather than just giving in to other pplz’s expectations. which can run straite into mother’s dy issues. mothers, mother figs, and mother issues may feel the need for attention and appreciation under this leo moon, but they may not need a lotta time; we can balance offerings and still take time for personal renewal.
communication slos down early nxt week as mercury retrogrades in gemini, 'twill help to keep talking b'we’ll nd'2 track our thoughts, memos and to-do lists carefully. gossip and shallo thinking can proliferate miscogging, so we’ll nd'2 confirm everything heard for the nxt few weeks, pticularly when it’s in line with our own opinions and ⊢ a place where we’re less likely to ask the tough ?s. let’s keep our crit thinking intact and follo through.
