Small Meets Large: A Week of Culmination
The theme of this week is about intimate inner planets (Venus, Mars and Mercury) encountering slow-moving mighty outer planets (Saturn, Chiron, Neptune and Eris).
Even when just one of the local, personal planets (such as Venus) encounters one of the “gods of change” (as they’re sometimes called), it’s noticeable, and there can be a personal revelation: a limit reached, a phase begun, a decision made, a turning point arrived at.
From Sunday, through the Memorial Day (U.S.) holiday and well into the week, this happens dependably and repeatedly, so you can expect actual movement in the human realm: lots of shuffling, feelings expressed, people to respond to, and resolving to finally do what you want to do.
Then soon after, Mercury, Venus and Mars all change signs. In the most personal realms of life, there are finally some changes coming, and how you handle them can shape your experience of the next few weeks.
You or others might be feeling internal pressure, impatience, or resolve to finally make some progress, try something new, or even conduct a wild experiment or two. The most important thing is that you not assume everything is done moving and shaking; we’re in the midst of a long series of shifts that persists for nearly two weeks.

If Your Birthday is May 29
(The Day of Quicksilver) | Gemini Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
You have some excellent opinions and you feel passionately about them, though you’ll make better progress if you maintain a dignified air when you’re presenting yourself. This is true for written ideas but even more important when you’re in person with people — when you cannot edit or delete. You need to trust yourself when you’re thinking on your feet.
Written in the Planets
Today’s Mars-Saturn opposition might feel as if you have a lot of energy available and are not quite sure where to put it. Having something constructive to focus on, preferably congenial and relevant to a long-term goal, could be useful. Make definite plans as far as you’re able, and minimize loss of time through the less meaningful forms of distraction. Keep your vocation in mind.
