The Daily Cosmic Calendar for May 8

Home and family themes are highlighted once the moon leaves void status in Gemini and arrives on the scene in watery Cancer (2:07 a.m.). While a tense, 45-degree contact between Mercury and often-chaos-bringer Neptune (4:42 a.m.) reminds you to be on your toes across the board, revelations abound as Mercury joins forces with electrifying Uranus at 4 degrees of Taurus (7:24 a.m.). Not only is this conjunction the annual meeting of these two potent celestial bodies, but they are simultaneously energizing the discovery degree in 1977 of wounded-healer and rainbow bridge-builder Chiron.

Don’t be surprised if a wave of nostalgia washes over you with the moon activating the fourth sign of the zodiac. Cooking, baking, and considering redecorating schemes for a favorite room in your residence are in the spotlight. Try your hand at writing rhyme poetry, haiku or limericks as the sun forms a supportive, 60-degree rapport with Neptune (7:53 p.m.)—which also helps to neutralize some of the earlier confusion that the Mercury-Neptune aspect may have set in motion.
