Astrology Forecast: May 2016 Embrace your questions

We are about midway through this round of Mercury Retrograde stumbles, which began April 28th.  The planet Mercury rules all types of communication, making this time period especially difficult for contracts and agreements.  Regardless, these first couple weeks of May should hold a great deal of positive energy and motivation for most of us.  A new moon in Taurus on May 6th is an excellent time to begin thinking about what your current desires are and how to go about staging them.  Towards the end of the month, once Mercury stations direct again on May 22nd is the best time to take that action.  In the mean time, handle practical issues while staying really focused on the big picture instead of small details.  If you embrace the questions you hold now, your answers will find you.


Taurus time rules the throat and ears.  That being so, I find the best plants for this month are the ones that are soothing to the throat and calming to the digestive system.  Some suggestions include Licorice, Fenugreek, and Slippery Elm.
