What does it all mean?

  • Gemini is an air sign and needs lots of stimuli. She is ruled by Mercury.
  • The house connected to Gemini is the 3rd house of: day-to-day travel/affairs and siblings… we could find ourselves busy with multiple things going on, even if they are just in our own minds… 😉 Dealings with family, especially siblings, are likely. 
  • We may find we are trying to do multiple things at once, which may not go exactly as planned. If you do find you have tons of ideas spinning around in your head, take pen to paper and jot them down… it will ease the “inside chatter” and you may find some of them useful later on. 
  • Some of us may have to make a concerted effort to listen instead of chat.
  • Caution is advised when doing up letters, emails and relaying messages, as much as we may think we have it right, it’s better to check one more time 
  • It’s a good time to get those lists and notes made up… 
  • Boredom may be at our door step and we may feel more restless than usual. 
  • The next few days may be positive for: buying a vehicle, entertaining guests, hair cut (for less growth), join a club, send mail, and mow the lawn to retard growth. 
  • This moon sign will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts.
        • Sun in Gemini
        • Moon in Gemini
        • Mercury in Gemini
        • Ascendant in Gemini
        • Midheaven in Gemini
        • Any aspects to the Sun, Moon, Mercury 
        • Those who have a strong Sagittarius influence in their chart



Mercury, the planet that rules Gemini,♊  moves into  “storm” on Tuesday, May 2nd. He slows down before going retrograde on May 10th. Gemini’s may be feeling a little muddled in thought, or may find that they aren’t as quick on the “uptake” as usual. Mercury Retrograde will have an effect on us all, however, those with strong Gemini and or Sagittarius chart influences may find the effects stronger. Mercury, rules, transportation, technology and communications…Sometimes referred to as the Messenger.

Venus moves into the sign of Aries♈  on Tuesday May 2nd @ 12:10 pm (ET) @ 9:10 am (PT). Aries is in determent in Venus, Venus rules Libra,♎ and Taurus♉ . Being in determent means that Aries isn’t as strong as he usually is, however, he is always brave and ready to take on what he needs to. This meeting indicates a social time, where meeting new people is easy to do…  Take care not to over do things, we want to keep on dancing, to keep on laughing and hanging out, but sleep and diet are what’s going to help us enjoy these social activities… 😊And because Venus is LOVE, new romance 💖 is also possible. Take care in this area also, the energy rush is real, but will it last… ?

This connection will effect Folks who have strong Venus (Libra/Taurus) chart influences, and those who have strong Aries (Mars) chart influences, more than the rest of us. Venus rules Love and Money, she is connected to Libra, (relationships) and Taurus (material and financial security). Aries is ruled by Mars, he is the “warrior” and action orientated.

***As Mercury has just entered into storm, some of us could run into challenges regarding communicating. It’s handy to think before we speak for the next little while. Emails, texts, tweets etc should also be checked before hitting the send button… 😎***

The Moon and Astrology


In astrology, the moon is connected to our emotions and reactions… how we are feeling on a given day may well be influenced by the sign that is visiting the moon… Each sign stays with the moon for up to 2.5 days…. 🙂 

The Moon Void-of-Course: 

There are times throughout the month when the moon isn’t fully immersed in any sign… this is when we say the moon is Void of Course… and when this occurs, we may feel “foggy” and “unfocused” … We may not be sure how we are truly feeling about a situation or a person…. Therefore it is not recommended that we make long-term commitments or important decision’s while the moon is Void of Course…. However there are 4 signs in the zodiac which may prove positive during the Void-of-Course moon…  

Good for Void-Of-Course Moon: These v/c signs may prove to be quite productive times.

  • Cancer
  • Taurus
  • Sagittarius
  • Pisces…

Opportunity Periods  

There are other periods throughout the month that are known as opportunity periods, when it can prove to be a positive time for most people, however if you have challenging aspects happening within your own chart you may not be able to make use of opportunity periods. 

Thanks to Paula Belluomini present day astrologer, William Lilly 17th century astrologer and Llewellyn’s Daily Planetary Guide for opportunity periods and dates.
