Astrological Almanac for Saturday, May 21, 2022

(All times Eastern) The Sun and retrograde Mercury meet up in Mercury’s sign of Gemini today. We may feel for a bit that the effects of the retrograde are somewhat mitigated, and things go a bit more smoothly than they have been going for a while. The morning has a decidedly independent feel to it, to the point where we may pick fights with others, so try not to get into it too deeply. The evening is calmer, and a good one for relaxing with friends. #dailystars #dailyastro #astrology #wheresthemoon Weekly Context Post: https://lafond.us/blog/todays-astrology/astrological-context-week-of-may-16-2022/ 21 May 2022 11:15 Mon Sqr Read more…
