We are back and we are steadily moving through Taurus Szn! We’ve had so much Venus energy pulsating in the air, COULD YOU FEEL IT?! Mercury, our communication planet, is currently in Gemini so let’s just get to it, shall we? First up:
SO WHAT’S UP WITH THE SKY RN?
MERCURY RETROGRADE ALERT! As I just mentioned, but it bears repeating, Mercury is in its home sign of Gemini and it’s here for an extra long while due to Mercury Retrograde, starting May 29 lasting ‘til June 22. Astrology aside, we are existing during a REALLY WEIRD TIME RN! Idk about you, but after getting vaccinated, it’s absolutely trippy AF to be social again. It’s also trippy AF to be reunited with friends and realize some friends have just been social this whole time(?!?!?!) The world has been turning??????? and the worlds ?!?! just gonna ?!?!! maybe one day soon not be pandemic-y?!?!!!!!!! (We’re still very much in it, just sitting in some mind explosion rn hbu?). I’ve chatted with friends who feel collectively rusty when it comes to conversing. We recently had a lot of planets in cozy Taurus, a sign ready to indulge and now we’re moving in Gemini times, a very social and friend-minded sign. I’m intrigued by this Merc Rx. I think it’s an invite for us to not say yes to every invite. To be intentional. I have my natal Mercury in Gemini and something I’m always working on is to not impulsively just say yes, when sometimes it’s a no. Just because we can overbook ourselves like pre-pandemic times, doesn’t mean we must.
Mars is still in Cancer for the rest of the month. If big fiestas aren’t for you just yet, maybe gear towards the more intimate and close to home occasions. Now, here’s the real goss: Jupiter is moving into Pisces on May 13! THAT IS SOME PARTY SAUCE. Pisces is very ~drunk orgy sloppy wet kisses sharing drinks from the bottle~ sort of vibe. I think we’re all ready for some FUN! ...but are we ready? IDK!!!! There’s so many factors saying to go full throttle...but as a loving astro reminder from me, Your Astrological Cheerleader™, feel it out. It’s ok if you’re someone who needs to pace yourself. It’s ok if you’re a person who is ready to go full buck. We need pleasure. We need rest. Let’s see where it all fits together. We’re still under the Taurus Sun until May 20th, and then it will move into Gemini. It’s a great time to get yourself situated for all the potential this year can bring us.
Speaking of ~ TODAY IS A NEW MOON! On May 11 we have a New Moon in lovely Taurus making a very sexy Sextile to Neptune in Pisces :) Not to get cheesy, but what an amazing day to turn your dreams into reality. Speak to your dreams like they are real. Give them form. Give permission to magic, allow it to infuse into your waking reality. I believe in you.
Thanks to everyone who booked readings with me while I was ~reading up a storm~ in April! My books are closed for the rest of the month, BUT you can always submit a one-off question that will be answered in next month’s newsletter! Click this link and ask away ~~~~~~~~> ASK AN ASTRO Q
WHAT I’M DIGGING
This is the section where I go full-ass-Taurus and list some of the things I’ve been ~into~ liiiiiiiiike:
Chai concentrate - Shout out to What’s Your Sign Patreon member Chelsea for informing me in our Discord chatroom about CHAI CONCENTRATE. Hot coffee, cold coffee, hunny I am adding a splash of this in every cup of my morning joe. I love the chai flavoooorrrrr. Why did I think only coffee shops were allowed to serve me chai lol
Live To Tape Podcast - Don’t you love when you re-fall in love with a podcast after it’s been a minute. I used to listen to SO much Live To Tape and then I saw friend of the pod Steve Hernandez was on a recent episode and I got hooked again and went back and explored old episodes that I missed. I’ve seen host Johnny Pemberton do live comedy (remember that) many times back in the day in LA and he’s so funny. I dig that the pod is great guests mixed with an exploration of music plus just fucking around with sound machines and funny voice effects. Good stuff.
Vintage gold accounts - Okay hello Taurus Szn...I have been obsessed with following (and shopping woops) vintage gold + jewelry accounts on Instagram. Some that come to mind right now are Caro Jewelry, The Bim Collective, and Moon Gold to name a few! So many treasures.
Microbladed brows - Y’all I have no eyebrows, organically. Bless microblading. Bless my eyebrow gal Ada who is the master of their craft and you should check out their brow work.
The song Fearless by Pink Floyd - It’s the best song ever created. That is all.
Supergoop Unseen Face Sunscreen - This is my new go-to for face sunscreen and the Unseen name is right ON! THE CONSISTENCY of this ‘screen is just off the chart. SILKY.
Mi Kasa Hot Springs - UM IT WAS MY BIRTHDAY ON MAY 2ND AND I PARTIED HARD AT A NUDIST RESORT. I am not normally one to blow up the spot, but I know that 2020 was not kind to a lot of businesses, so I am going to highly encourage those in the SoCal area to check out Mi Kasa Hot Springs. Clothing optional. Hot spring fed. Cheeky good time.
Alright, that’s it. Let’s go do the rest of May, babies! I’ll be emailing you again in June.
