Mercury Retrograde

Ed Kluska’s Astrology Timing Report, Friday, May 06, 2022


Moon in the fire sign Leo from Saturday morning until Monday evening boosts Leo and, to a lesser degree, the other fire signs, Aries and Sagittarius. Moon in Leo also helps any planets and points you have in Leo and should bring together more things for Leo on a short-term basis.


Moon in Leo supports anyone’s involvement with Leo-related attitudes and activities such as romance and courtship; connecting more with children and loved ones; fun, parties, entertainment, hobbies, and recreation; theater, art, and creative endeavors; wherever leadership and self-assurance can be applied; being on stage and projecting your confidence; and what is dramatic, glamorous, and in the public limelight.

Mercury Retrograde


During the next week, you will likely experience some important shifts in your thinking, attitudes, and plans. Furthermore, it would be helpful if you were more careful with your decisions because, from my research, the five days before and after Mercury goes retrograde (in this case, Tuesday, May 10) and the five days before and after Mercury goes direct (June 03) are the most significant days for Mercury Retrograde.


Unfortunately, many people believe that everything will go wrong when Mercury is retrograde. Still, many successful organizations, companies, corporations, and individuals have Mercury retrograde in their horoscopes.


Also, too many people blame Mercury Retrograde for their problems and mishaps when, in fact, more significant factors are contributing to their difficulties, such as Mars, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto making challenging aspects to important planets and points in their horoscope.


Furthermore, Mercury retrograde periods are favorable for inward-oriented activities such as reflection, reviewing, and meditation, making this a good time for writing, editing, researching, and problem-solving.


However, with Mercury ruling thoughts and communication, there will likely be more “mess-ups” and complications than usual, including mental lapses and mistakes, misunderstandings, false assumptions, missed appointments, lost checks, written typos, cancellations, and postponements. For example, you are more likely to encounter longer delays, misplaced luggage, lost hotel room keys, unforeseen detours, and inaccurate directions when you travel.


Most importantly, the decisions you make and the plans you start with Mercury retrograde are more likely to take a twist and be seen differently when unforeseen assumptions and mistakes "come to light” after Mercury goes direct.


Current Sun Sign Factors


The following sign assessments are only “the tip of the iceberg” for what you should know about what is occurring in your horoscope. A complete evaluation of what is happening in your horoscope is far more complex and involved than any newsletter can present. For example, there are many factors besides your sun sign to consider, such as the transits to all the planets and points in your horoscope. However, merely being aware of the current transits to your Sun’s position can be invaluable because the outer planets (Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto) create life-altering trends and events. For a complete analysis, contact me.


Venus, the planet related to love, money, and the arts, in Aries from May 02 until May 28, brings blessings and benefits to Aries and, to a lesser degree, the other fire signs, Leo and Sagittarius, and the house in your horoscope ruled by Aries.


Mars in Pisces from April 15 until May 24 energizes Pisces and helps to a lesser degree the other water signs, Cancer and Scorpio. However, with Mars related to desires, passions, conflicts, urgency, impulsiveness, and stress, Mars will also challenge Gemini, Leo, Virgo, Libra, and Sagittarius during this period. Check your planets’ positions in the above signs to know when there may be added stress, pressure, and aggravations in your life.


Jupiter, the planet of hope, expansion, optimism, opportunities, and good fortune, direct at 29 degrees Pisces, brings opportunities for anyone with planets and points at 29 degrees of any sign, especially Pisces and the other water signs, Cancer and Scorpio, and the other mutable signs, Gemini, Virgo, and Sagittarius.


Saturn direct at 24.5 degrees Aquarius is likely bringing steady accomplishments for anyone born at 25 degrees Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius, as well as pressures, tests, trials, delays, losses, and even harsh realities for anyone with points or planets at 25 degrees Taurus, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Scorpio, and Aquarius.


Uranus direct at 15 degrees Taurus brings significant shifts, changes, adjustments, and even shocks for anyone with planets and points around 15 degrees Taurus, Leo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, and Aquarius. Uranus in Taurus also creates possible advances, breakthroughs, and new opportunities for those with planets and points at 15 degrees Virgo and Capricorn.


Neptune direct and approaching 25 degrees Pisces brings opportunities for healing, inspiration, imagination, creativity, and spirituality for anyone born at 25 degrees Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces, and possible deception, confusion, weakness, and even illnesses and debilitating conditions for anyone born at 25 degrees Gemini, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Pisces.


Pluto retrograde at 28.5 degrees Capricorn positively influences anyone born at 28 degrees Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn. This position is also potentially challenging and transformative for those with planets and points at 28 degrees Aries, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Libra, and Capricorn.


Lunar Aspects


The most important Moon in Leo aspects are listed below. The descriptions do not intend to tell you what will happen in your life at the times given. Instead, they provide some of the possible influences you can expect around the times given so you can plan your life more wisely. It is often apparent which time frames are better than others for timing a party, trip, decision, project, business, or other events.


Lunar aspects are in effect for a few hours (versus days) before and until the times given for the Eastern Time Zone. Therefore, you need to adjust the times for where you live. For example, if you live on the West Coast, there is a three-hour difference, so you need to subtract three hours.


The plus (+) lunar aspects are favorable. The minus (-) lunar aspects are more likely to bring challenges or difficulties. The + and - lunar aspects can exhibit positive and negative influences.


Saturday, May 07


07:49 AM Moon enters Leo, where it remains until Monday evening when it enters the next sign, Virgo.


08:01 PM + (Moon in Leo 120 Venus in Aries) opportunities for cooperation, cheerfulness, affections, pleasantries, gracefulness, emotional sharing, and artistic expression, especially involving females.


Sunday, May 08


12:49 PM + (Moon in Leo 135 Jupiter in Pisces) opportunities for any interpersonal situation, including parties, meetings, social gatherings, and working with the public. In addition, this lunar aspect increases the possibilities for kindness, benevolence, positive attitudes, shared feelings, and uplifting emotional support.


01:41 PM - (Moon in Leo 90 Uranus in Taurus) opportunities for increased instincts, willfulness, and aspirations regarding anything new, different, exciting, and adventuresome. However, this can also bring nervousness, anxiety, upsets, restlessness, excitability, volatility, and emotionally charged situations.


07:38 PM - (Moon in Leo 150 Mars in Pisces) opportunities for bolder and more direct actions. However, this aspect magnifies feelings and passions, and as a result, can bring impatience, rashness, impulsiveness, anger, and even forceful actions.


Monday, May 09


04:27 AM + (Moon in Leo 90 Node in Taurus) opportunities for connecting with people via networking, social interactions, and alliances with large and small groups.


08:38 AM (Moon in Leo 180 Saturn in Aquarius) opportunities for orderly, steady, conscientious, pragmatic, and realistic plans and activities. However, this aspect is challenging because it is emotionally restrictive and can create issues, worries, and differences.


08:50 AM - (Moon in Leo 150 Neptune in Pisces) opportunities for daydreaming, imagination, creativity, prayer, meditation, and highly refined artistic and spiritual feelings and aspirations. However, this aspect increases the possibilities for haziness and emotional confusion and is not ideal for logical discussions and clear-cut decisions.


04:09 PM - (Moon in Leo 150 Pluto in Capricorn) opportunities for digging deeper into your emotions and feelings. However, this aspect can complicate relationships with subtle yet emotionally charged situations, including manipulation, hidden motives, and power struggles, although these factors may not be fully realized until later.


06:29 PM + (Moon in Leo 150 Jupiter in Pisces) opportunities for any interpersonal situation, including parties, meetings, social gatherings, and working with the public. In addition, this lunar aspect increases the possibilities for kindness, benevolence, positive attitudes, shared feelings, and uplifting emotional support.


06:29 PM Moon in Leo Void until 06:53 PM when it enters the next sign, Virgo.


This Void is less than half an hour but take note because there tends to be a lull in the energy levels during Void periods. What you start or implement is less likely to turn out as planned or expected. It’s usually better to do things with less significance or no purpose than versus trying to start something new and vital. If you have a new idea, meet someone new, or start a business, for example, those activities are less likely to amount to much.


Guidelines for Using This Information


These newsletters are not your typical sun sign column. They provide much more information and guidance, but it may not be easy for you to sort everything out with so many factors presented, even for astrology students. Therefore, I try to keep everything as clear and straightforward as possible.


The most critical factor with right timing is what is occurring in your horoscope. When negative aspects dominate your horoscope, the chances of success with right timing diminish no matter how favorable the aspects are in the sky. These newsletters cannot cover what is occurring in your horoscope. However, applying the information in these newsletters with common sense allows you to better time your decisions and activities.


The basic premise of right timing is that it helps to have the "stars" on your side. Starting a marriage, trip, surgery, business, real estate deal, or a major purchase, for example, at an inopportune time reduces the chances of success no matter how good your intentions and how hard you try: the better the timing, the higher your chances of success. Even an hour can make a significant difference with important decisions and events.


Moon enters each zodiac sign about every 28 days and remains in each sign for about two and a half days. When the Moon is in your sun sign, matters are likely to come more together for you on a short-term basis unless significant aspects are currently challenging your horoscope.


The traits and qualities I assign to the signs in these newsletters describe the signs’ functions and meanings versus describing your personality. However, the descriptions may be entirely accurate for you. Furthermore, to understand a person’s personality and character from an astrological perspective, dozens of factors besides one's sun sign need to be considered.


Contact me to know what’s going on in your horoscope and to make better decisions at better times. We will schedule a private consultation at my office or on the phone, so you can know more about your future and better understand the issues and opportunities in your life as well as your relationships, job, career, education, finances, children, parents, travel, health, location, retirement, karma, and purpose in life.
