- Friday, May 2nd - Mercury opposite Saturn
Narrow, focused thinking. Exclusion. Limitations in transport or communication. Overly exacting judgments. Delays.
Mercury opposite Saturn can cause pessimism, delays and obstacles in communications. This can lead to malfunctions with computers, cell phones and other telecommunications related devices or structures.
Mercury and Saturn are in the 'money signs' of Taurus/Scorpio so this may be a day of problems with financial transactions, calculations and reports. Be prepared to have to struggle with some difficulties before all is said and done.
To get the most from this aspect, you will have to work hard, deal with some type of suffering and triple check everything.
This aspect does not make communications easier but through hard work, perseverance and maybe a little help from older/experienced minds this could be a time of some significant academic, historical, or literary achievement. Be prepared to struggle with discussions, paperwork, children, or ideas and take the time to cover all of your bases. In the end you may produce an outstanding accomplishment which could win awards in the future and/or that may stand the test of time.
