Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Forecast for the week of May 4, 2020 – May 10, 2020:
This week it’s going to be one Mercury transit after another, along with a meteor shower, a Full Moon in Scorpio and several planets slowing down as they prepare to turn retrograde.
Starting on Monday, the Sun conjuncts Mercury and Venus squares Neptune. Starting with the Sun / Mercury aspect, this is a superior conjunction (as Mercury is currently in direct motion). It’s generally a very positive aspect, especially for things like interacting and communicating with others, sharing ideas, and gathering information, But because it’s so close to the Sun that it’s hidden from view (a condition known as “combust”) you want to be aware that not everything that pops into your head during this time is worth acting on.
