Mercury turns retrograde today, its second planetary moonwalk this year. This time the trickster planet will be moving from Gemini to Taurus, which means we can expect miscommunications around money and relationships until Mercury turns direct on June 3. Throughout this transit it’s important to double-check everything you’re expressing and putting into the universe to make sure you aren’t misrepresenting yourself or matters with misleading facts.
Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion, enters Aries today. At this time, we’re giving our all to make sure we’re in control of our destiny. When Jupiter is in this sign, it allows you to see things from your own perspective. You are changing the way that you look at things, which means that you’re putting your own needs first. Taking a step into the spotlight will be easy as you allow yourself to be seen and noticed. For the first time in a long time, you aren’t playing second fiddle to anyone, especially anyone who is standing in the way of your success.

Loyalty to people and situations can turn into attachment that results in stagnation, enmeshment, and loss of integrity. Do you fear what will happen if you let a relationship evolve? Are you afraid that asking for a situation to change will make others see you as disloyal? Trust that when Dog Spirit appears, you are meant to accept the turning of the wheel of life and the changing of fortunes.
If you feel you are being betrayed or are growing apart from someone, let Dog Spirit reconnect you with your commitment to love in all its forms. Perhaps a relationship is meant to evolve; perhaps you are meant to evolve too, so that you can experience the growth for which your soul yearns. Your greatest loyalty is to love, so be open to all its many guises, including self-love. You deserve the best, and that is what Spirit wants for you.
