THIS WILL GEN­ER­ALLY BE A CHEER­FUL, up­beat, and so­cia­ble week. Af­ter a wan­der­ing Me­mo­rial Day week­end, we can get some mo­men­tum go­ing.

But to­ward what? Over the last month, a ret­ro­grade Mer­cury has en­cour­aged us to be in­tro­spec­tive and re­view our life, to look at what’s work­ing and what’s not. This hol­i­day week­end, a sen­si­tive, dreamy Pisces moon gives us a chance to let go of the tense strands of our life, break rou­tine, and get a bit of dis­tance so we can talk things out and reen­vi­sion the next steps of our life.

Start­ing Mon­day, it’s time to or­ga­nize those next steps for­ward, whether we’re think­ing about a sum­mer va­ca­tion, work, or a po­lit­i­cal cam­paign. An in­no­va­tive Aries moon riles us up early next week, mak­ing it a great time to launch pro­pos­als and in­sti­gate change. Peo­ple will be in a de­ci­sion-mak­ing mode, so get that ré­sumé or great idea on the ta­ble. The en­ergy calms down af­ter Wed­nes­day as the moon enters earthy Taurus, but we may deal with a tem­po­rary re­lapse of dreamy con­fu­sion as the sun and Venus square in­tu­itive Nep­tune.

Op­ti­mistic mo­men­tum builds on a good day. We hit a bumpy road as en­er­giz­ing Mars ret­ro­grades back into deep-think­ing Scorpio this week­end and through Aug. 4. Mars in Scorpio can bring great fo­cus to our work, but it does have a dark side.

If some­body crosses our path, we re­mem­ber ev­ery time they’ve done so in the past. This at­ti­tude can help us hold peo­ple ac­count­able, but can also dis­tract us from stay­ing on task. If we feel old re­sent­ments wast­ing our time, let’s as­sess the sit­u­a­tion and de­cide if we need to take ac­tion.

FRI­DAY, MAY 27: This morn­ing brings pro­duc­tive con­ver­sa­tions and use­ful meet­ings. Com­mu­ni­ca­tion jams up briefly around noon as the moon squares Mer­cury; our at­ten­tion wan­ders and ir­ra­tional stub­born­ness tan­gles ne­go­ti­a­tions. Evening grows more so­cia­ble with last-minute spon­tane­ity.

SATUR­DAY, MAY 28: This morn­ing is col­lab­o­ra­tive and chatty, as long as we don’t push peo­ple to open up. Early-af­ter­noon will­ful­ness en­cour­ages us to go our own way as the moon squares Mars. Feel­ings are sen­si­tized as the moon enters Pisces tonight. Keep the agenda open.

SUN­DAY, MAY 29: Com­mune with na­ture this dreamy morn­ing — just don’t ex­pect ef­fi­ciency as the moon con­juncts in­tu­itive Nep­tune. We may get more se­ri­ous and com­pe­tent in the af­ter­noon as the moon squares Saturn, but the less we ex­pect the bet­ter.

MON­DAY, MAY 30: Gear up slowly. Many de­ci­sions will be made in the next few days, so it’s time to get pro­pos­als out. The en­ergy speeds up as the day pro­gresses and the moon enters im­pul­sive Aries; Mer­cury trines Pluto and brings pen­e­trat­ing con­ver­sa­tions but with re­cal­ci­trant opin­ions.

TUES­DAY, MAY 31: What does op­por­tu­nity mean to us? Let’s think about what we need most in the long run — shall we spend to­day’s pos­i­tive aspects sa­vor­ing a sum­mery mo­ment or bring cu­rios­ity and cre­ativ­ity to our col­lab­o­ra­tive projects?

WED­NES­DAY, JUNE 1: We tend to be im­pul­sive and im­pa­tient as the moon con­juncts Uranus in di­rect Aries, but have trou­ble see­ing where we’re go­ing as the sun squares un­re­al­is­tic Nep­tune. Cau­tious en­thu­si­asm and fore­sight mat­ter; stay cen­tered and think three steps ahead. The mood slows down and grows earth­ier as the moon enters Taurus tonight.

THURS­DAY, JUNE 2: The mood is sen­si­tive and imag­i­na­tive, if over-im­pres­sion­able as Venus squares dreamy Nep­tune. We’re un­usu­ally cre­ative, but our judg­ment might be off. Ex­plore op­tions, but stay open to new in­for­ma­tion.
