Your ruler Mercury makes a lot of fast moves, and you should be aware of its trine to authoritative Mars on June 1. With your mental power at its peak, this is your chance to get ahead of your competition and show off your mental abilities. Learning new things comes easily, and your accuracy regarding dates and calculations is amazing. Mercury spends time in family-focused Cancer starting on the twelfth, so communications with relatives will be highlighted. This is a good time to start open dialogs and let others know you can be sympathetic and sensitive to what they’re going through. A Mercury-Pluto retrograde opposition on June 23 helps you zero in on an issue that’s been bothering you for a while now, but you may not want to vocalize your feelings and/or findings just yet. Find a sympathetic ear for your psychological self-analysis if you must, but don’t announce anything to the public just yet. Mercury enters “look at me” Leo on the twenty-ninth, so you’ll have plenty of time and more desire to broadcast your thoughts then. Self-promotion is generally a good thing, but make sure you know when to turn it on and off.

Mercury, your ruler, is a busy planet, moving from one aspect to the next rather quickly. Its conjunction with quirky Uranus on May 13 is of note, however, because of its stimulating effect. New thoughts and ideas are easily created, which can alter your daily routines and plans. Not one to move too quickly, you are a mutable sign, so you’re open to changes if they happen slowly. Mercury’s trine to retrograde Saturn on the eighteenth is good for studying and catching up on things like paying the bills and signing contracts. You have stellar attention to detail, so if anything’s wrong, you’re going to catch it. Putting your mind to reaching goals has excellent results right now, even if it will be a while before you see your hard work pay off. When Mercury spends time in Gemini, a curious air sign, on May 29, you’re excellent at trivia games and puzzles. Your brain works like a well-oiled machine, and your enthusiasm for learning new things puts you at an advantage over your competitors. The one drawback of this transit is your tendency to get distracted. When restlessness gets to be a problem, redirect your excess energy and attention to something productive.

Hibernate or celebrate? You’ll be pulled between dueling desires for privacy and live-out-loud expression this month, as the planets cluster into two distinct sectors of your chart. Mars, Saturn and Pluto are holding a cosmic confab in Capricorn, which governs your passionate fifth house. Hello, spring awakening! With randy Mars here, your wild side is having a coming-out party, although structured Saturn could temper that a bit. All the same, don’t be surprised when your theatrical streak emerges—or you start turning heads without trying. But just as you fasten your heart to your sleeve and perfect your swagger, you could suddenly have the urge to clam up. That’s because the Sun is making its annual sojourn through Aries and your intimate eighth house until April 19, which also makes you crave privacy. Take some time out of the spotlight and work a little mystery into your act. And prepare for some potential fireworks because the combination of these saucy, sizzling, celestial forces could set your boudoir ablaze all month!
