ASTROLOGY May 5 – May 12, 2018

ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 20)
Everything that has happened over the last few years has ultimately opened you up to a whole change in outlook. As Chiron moves in and Uranus moves out, so upheaval mellows out and healing begins. With Mercury also in your sign, this is a time of contemplation, of insight.

TAURUS (Apr 21 – May 20)
The Sun is shining brightly on your field of play. Jupiter in Scorpio is directly opposing him. You are standing between your desire for a simple life, and the fact that complications abound. There are tangles to untangle and knots to undo. Attend to reality. Genuine simplicity will follow.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 21)
The Capricorn Moon at the beginning of the week provides you with a reminder to knuckle down and do what needs to be done. This will alter your mood and bring you back to the delight and capacity to receive love, that comes with Venus’s boundlessly positive presence in your sign.

CANCER (June 22 – July 22)
The Moon starts the week in Capricorn, moving people towards independence and self-reliance. This is a good reminder at this time. To get your roots down, you need to rely on your own talents and energy. Yours is the starter motor for the projects that mean most. Others will join later.

LEO (July 23 – Aug 22)
The Capricorn Moon at the beginning of the week gives you a timely reminder to trust yourself. It’s the inspirations and ideas that surface in your alone moments, when all the static of external noise fades away, that mean most. Once you have a dream then you must communicate it.

VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22)
You want to feel at home, nurtured and safe. At the same time Mercury is in Aries, which is causing you to push against the very things you want. It’s going to take a stretch of insight to see these old patterns and loosen their hold. Intimacy is an adventure. It involves the ego being laid aside.

LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 23)
The Taurus Sun is keeping your feet on the ground. Venus is in Gemini, keeping you butterfly light, curious and playful. When intensity arises in your relationships, let the Sun bring you back to your physicality, your earthiness, your groundedness; then Venus will help you to find the dance.

SCORPIO (Oct 24 – Nov 21)
Simplicity is a beautiful thing, but when the mundane dulls your senses instead of awakens them, it’s time for a change. You love breakthrough moments. Any intensity that gets pinned on you, is because this is what you keep going for. Sometimes you get there sometimes not. Get there.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
You are entering the waters of relationship tentatively. There’s so much to want in there – but there’s also the possibility of getting hurt. There’s no shortcut or easy way through. The presence of an ‘other’ at close quarters is bound to confront our ego. Be prepared to feel and learn.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Capricorn is getting crowded. Saturn is here. Pluto is here. Mars is here – and now the Moon pays a visit early in the week. She will shine a light on all the rest. Expect your emotions to run through you like a cleansing river. Don’t fear them. Welcome them. Shift direction, from the heart.

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Though you are in a position of influence, obvious or not, the general groundswell of events isn’t focussed on you. This can give you a chance to move forward unencumbered – unless you crave the very attention that could inadvertently divert or derail you. Be careful what you wish for.

PISCES (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
With the Sun in Taurus you feel like there is ground beneath your feet, that you are supported, held. This, beautifully, gives you confidence to create, to dream. The river needs good solid banks in order to be able to flow freely. Don’t over-think things. Stay with what you know to be true.
