The general horoscope for this weekend applies to not just one sign, but to all of them, meaning the movement of the planets will affect us all in similar ways. No matter what you sun sign is, the position of the planets this weekend are shaping up to be beautiful for all of us.
Prepare To Socialize
With the new moon in Gemini on Thursday, the weekend kicks off providing several options to choose from, with social gatherings arising at the last minute.
While you might already have plans set in stone, the new moon in Gemini may inspire you to want to do everything at once, and luckily you've got the support of the sun in Gemini to go ahead and multitask.
If you've got one barbecue planned for the early afternoon and are invited to another one later in the evening, go ahead and go! The sun in Gemini means having several choices, and the new moon will make you want to sample everything.
No matter what your sign is, everyone is likely to have more choices for social opportunities than they know what to do with.
New moons are also a fantastic time to set intentions and lay the groundwork for new goals and opportunities, so on Thursday, before you head into the holiday weekend, take a few moments to think about what you want to accomplish in the next six months.
Then, as you head into the weekend, keep your eyes out for someone who could be a powerful connection for your work life or personal life, depending upon the intentions you've set, of course.
The days and weeks following a New Moon provide you with the burst of energy you need to take action and plant seeds for new ventures. As you head into the weekend, you'll be feeling very positive about the possibilities that lie ahead.
Sweet talking influences
On Sunday, right before the holiday, Mercury, the messenger planet shows a fantastic aspect to Neptune, the planet of creativity and dreams.
This endows you with an uncanny ability to sweet talk your way into or out of almost anything, as when Mercury and Neptune are in powerful aspects to one another, it lends a hypnotic ability to put our thoughts and dreams into words.
Your imagination (ruled by Neptune) will be actively working through you (under Mercury's influence) so be aware that now is the time for conversations, brainstorming, and creative endeavors.
While it may not be the most traditional of Memorial Day plans, one way to take advantage of this aspect would be to get together with a big old bong and dream board with your friends; you could always barbecue beforehand.
The only thing to look out for over the weekend is jealousy or possessiveness.
You may feel a restricting influence coming from your closest relationships, as Venus (the planet of love and partnerships) is in a difficult relationship to Pluto, the planet of death, jealousy, power and transformation.
If you feel you need to have a difficult conversation with one of your besties (or with your SO) do it now, because by the end of the weekend you'll be able to work through it. Suppressing any negative thoughts can be more damaging than helpful, because with Pluto's influence no feelings will stay buried for long.
Happy Memorial Day, everyone!
