May the “fourth” be with you! It’s time for your weekly horoscope for May 4th. The week begins with the sun (planet of self) in Taurus aligning with Mercury (planet of communication), encouraging the sharing of ideas and opinions and connecting with others.
All in all, Mercury is about to make some lively aspects this week—specifically one with Neptune (planet of illusion) that’ll hit hard on Thursday. This is an opportunity to use the imagination to bring key plans to life. If they seemed a tad predictable, this connection encourages more creativity.
Also on Thursday, there’s a supermoon in Scorpio that sizzles with intensity. This powerful lunar phase can bring issues to the surface, encouraging people to speak their mind and clear the air. However, it can also prompt you to make decisions while in an emotional frame of mind, which would be something to avoid.
Articulate Mercury aligns with Pluto (planet of transformation) and Jupiter (planet of abundance) over the weekend, which can bring exciting new developments. Finally, Saturn (planet of foundation) turns retrograde in the sign of Aquarius on Sunday, which could bring a change of heart regarding certain ideals or beliefs.
With Mercury urging you to communicate and the Saturn retrograde in Aquarius shifting your beliefs, now might be a good time to reach out to anyone you haven’t spoken with in a while. Consider treating yourself to some new stationary and sending out a few notes. Everyone enjoys getting mail, and you’ll enjoy the chance to speak your mind and share some new ideas with friends.
