May 2012 ends on a mixed note where the early energy-field is highly encouraging and the evening hours are more enshrouded in mystery. Mercury forming an inspirational, 72-degree link to Pallas (3:55AM PDT) can be seen as a fantastic tool for problem-solving and conducting exalted strategy sessions. Your strong thought process is reinforced as the Moon in Libra trines Mercury in Gemini (5:45AM PDT). Love vibrations increase in frequency as the Moon trines Venus (11:31AM PDT). Even though Venus is still doing backstrokes in Gemini, a harmonious lunar trine to the traditional planet of love and romance can work in your favor. Another positive contact that can energize affairs of the heart is an inspirational, 72-degree link from Mars to Juno (4:38PM PDT). The buoyancy of today’s early alignments cools off considerably later on when the Moon makes its monthly union with Saturn in Libra (6:31PM PDT). While any Moon-Saturn conjunction can function well – if you are focused on studying profound subjects or enhancing your professional stature – today’s merger begins a void lunar uncertainty zone that lasts until 5:32AM PDT tomorrow. Therefore, it is wise to hedge your bets tonight and avoid provoking dear ones who have your best interests at heart, but may not always have the facility of easily expressing those sentiments. Gear up for a potent start to June on Friday with an intensive lunar presence in Scorpio (starting at 5:32AM PDT tomorrow), and a double-whammy where Mercury and Venus form a parallel and conjunction with each other.
