Make hay while the sun shines — with the sun, moon, Mars, and Pluto in earth signs as the week­end be­gins, let’s get our work done and sketch out plans for the next cou­ple of months

Mer­cury, sym­bolic ruler of com­mu­ni­ca­tion and trans­porta­tion, com­pli­cates our lo­gis­tics as it turns ret­ro­grade from May 18 to June 11. We can al­ready feel our world slow­ing down, but we can make the most of that introspective time if we get or­ga­nized now.

Fri­day brings a hard­work­ing Capricorn moon, and asks us to en­gage in the con­ver­sa­tion about the right and wrong use of per­sonal, po­lit­i­cal, and elec­tri­cal power — the dis­cus­sion of our time raised by the on­go­ing Pluto-Uranus square, stim­u­lated right now as the moon con­juncts Pluto.

We get a taste of this com­ing mer­cu­rial con­fu­sion over the week­end as men­tal Mer­cury squares in­tu­itive, imag­i­na­tive Nep­tune. While it’s a won­der­ful time to drift and dream by the creek, we need to be pa­tient around con­fus­ing mes­sages. It will be easy to get dis­tracted and drop the ball.

This lit­tle taste of Mer­cury glitches can help us no­tice where we need to tighten our ef­forts or re­pair lines of com­mu­ni­ca­tion in or­der to pre­pare for the Mer­cury-ret­ro­grade sea­son. With Venus now in sen­si­tive, de­fen­sive Can­cer, peo­ple aren’t re­ally fond of crit­i­cism, even if it is con­struc­tive.

A so­cia­ble Aquarius moon over the week­end gets us out and about. Mars en­ters talk­a­tive Gemini, and the moon en­ters in­tu­itive Pisces on Mon­day, which can sharpen our sen­si­tiv­i­ties as the week be­gins. Mid­week an Aries moon helps us kick into high gear and ac­com­plish a lot in a short pe­riod of time.

Fri­day, May 8: Plan, or­ga­nize, and ac­com­plish things on this ef­fi­cient if slightly grumpy day. Apol­o­gize if nec­es­sary and re­pair old wrongs this morn­ing. Take work se­ri­ously this af­ter­noon as the Capricorn moon con­juncts Pluto. The mood light­ens up this evening as the moon trines the sun — we can mix busi­ness with plea­sure tonight.

Satur­day, May 9: Wa­ter dam­age can cause glitches in the sys­tem, and sleepi­ness fogs the morn­ing as Mer­cury squares Nep­tune. In the late af­ter­noon, if we can agree with one an­other, we can get things done as the moon squares Mars and then en­ters Aquarius around din­ner­time. The evening is more agree­able.

Sun­day, May 10: So­cial obligations are won­der­ful, but take time over them. En­gage in con­ver­sa­tion around brunch time as the moon trines Mer­cury. The af­ter­noon is a good time for col­lab­o­ra­tive projects. Tonight, as the moon en­ters ex­pan­sive Aquarius, phi­los­o­phize to get a bet­ter over­view of a per­sonal sit­u­a­tion.

Mon­day, May 11: If we can get into a groove, this can be a pro­duc­tive morn­ing as the Aquarius moon squares the sun. Ac­ti­vat­ing Mars en­ters flex­i­ble Gemini and gives us more ne­go­ti­at­ing room. Our sen­si­tiv­i­ties are height­ened as the moon en­ters Pisces tonight.

Tues­day, May 12: This morn­ing can feel spacey, imag­i­na­tive, and vul­ner­a­ble as the moon con­juncts Nep­tune in Pisces and squares Mer­cury. Use sub­tle per­cep­tions to re­fine work and ap­pre­ci­ate the land­scape.

Wed­nes­day, May 13: We may feel a lit­tle homesick this morn­ing. There’s heal­ing work to be done as the moon con­juncts Ch­i­ron. Our en­ergy and brav­ery pick up, and so does our bel­liger­ence.

Thurs­day, May 14: On this rest­less, di­rect day, ex­plore or break into new ter­ri­tory. Some in­ter­est­ing threads of our past can pluck at our heart­strings this af­ter­noon. Tonight can over­flow with ca­ma­raderie as the moon trines Jupiter.
