With mane-obsessed Leo helming this lunar operative, think about giving your hair a little spring update. Cutting bangs, brightening the color, or adding a few layers for movement could be the perfect, modest lift this quarter moon calls for. Or, just toy with temporary touches. Think glittery beauty products and peacock eyes in the spirit of Gemini makeup artist Pat McGrath.
And if you're going to take the shears to your locks, maybe wait until Wednesday. That's when expressive Mercury wakes up from a three-week retrograde that began in Taurus on April 9 and scooted back into Aries on April 20. The world has seen more than its fair share of insanely bullheaded behavior (those United Airlines passenger removal policies) and warmongering machismo (MOAB droppings and North Korean missile parades).
The messages of these moves were pure Mercury retrograde WTF in flavor—and we wish we'd never witnessed them. But this backspin gave us yet another peek behind the curtain of Humans Behaving Badly. This $#^% is real and it's not exactly new. But we, as a species, CAN do better than that.
As Mercury pivots into a positive flow—and powers through Aries until May 16—we have a chance to rewrite those unworkable scripts. Transmute that anger into activism—and please, rise up from your armchair and Twitter feed. The IRL world could use your actual participation.
And yes, the coast is clearing for the standard Mercury retrograde tasks: shopping for gadgets and a new set of wheels, signing contracts, getting tattoos, deciding whether or not your love interest is undateable—you know. But the full shadow of Mercury doesn't clear until May 22. Move ahead at a gentle clip and give your good senses a chance to resume.
