Read your Astrology Guide to the Week of May 30th: a usable and concise toolkit for the week’s upcoming astrology.
How to make the most of this week … As the week begins, a New Moon in Gemini helps us to begin again. If there’s something you need to say, some message to lend your voice to, now is the time. This New Moon gives you the green light to seed something brilliant in the part of your chart that contains the sign of the twins.
By June 3rd, Mercury (the ruler of this Gemini New Moon) stations direct. As this pivot takes place, you are invited to refine and course-correct as needed. Since Mercury stations direct near the fixed star, Algol messages are meant to be intense. Justice doesn’t come to those who ask nicely for it.
Finally, old business beckons, as Saturn stations retrograde in Aquarius. If there’s something in your life that requires a conceptual overhaul, now is the time. You may be called to rework your social boundaries, ideological frameworks, or your responsibility to the collective itself. Take this moment to reflect on the systems and structures you’ve built in the part of your chart that hosts Aquarius. Are they still load-bearing?

Tarot card of the week … We chose the 8 of Swords for its rulership over the first ten degrees of Gemini, where the New Moon occurs. The suit of the swords is a cerebral one. It reflects Gemini’s rapid mental processing. This archetype can plunge us into a labyrinth of limiting beliefs that systemic injustice induces. With Mercury stationing direct after the New Moon, we may need to clear a maze of (self)-doubt before our seedlings for justice catch the wind. Remember that a challenge may loom larger in the mind than in reality. The barriers to change can be removed.
When contemplating the 8 of Swords, ask: what resistance or fear is kicking up dust over this New Moon? What systems need to be challenged right now? What practices help you put injustice in its place so that liberation becomes the only goal?
Affirmation of the week … I am not stuck. Everything, everything, everything is temporary.
