ASTROLOGY: May 12 – May 19, 2018

ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 20)
The Moon begins the week waning in Aries. Let whatever it is that is ending, end. A fresh cycle is due. Take time out from having your foot on the pedal. Use this moment as a quiet time, a reflective time. The solitude you have is for healing. It is for reconnecting to your deepest longings.

TAURUS (Apr 21 – May 20)
This moment is right for making pragmatic decisions. Your mind will do its level best to distract and deflect you from what is best. That’s what minds do. Wait for things to settle inside, then the choice will be so obvious that you won’t be able to do anything but take it. Change is here.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 21)
Venus is here with you in all the little events and moments that bring you delight. She is not present in your imaginings, fantasies, or dreams. Don’t be tricked into thinking that magic is somewhere off in the future, or get sentimental about what’s been and gone. Open yourself here and now.

CANCER (June 22 – July 22)The Moon is heading towards it’s dark phase – and then it’s rebirth. Life continuously renews itself. There are rich cycles unfolding before our eyes, offering us insight into the true nature of things. Still we miss the obvious. Permanency is a bit of a myth. Movement is a better foundation.

LEO (July 23 – Aug 22)
Communicate what’s going on under the surface. As scary as it is, it’s the only way you are ever gong to find out that you are not alone. Isolation one of the most dangerous factors for ill health going. Love is the opposite of fear. The planets are prescribing curiosity and connection now.

VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22)
Mercury is travelling through the last few degrees of Aries. Your general jumpiness is likely to settle, as he moves towards the more relaxing realm of Taurus. Though Mercury’s passage through Aires has been uncomfortable, you have had some life-altering adventures well worth having.

LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 23)
Life’s little resistances and obstacles are softening. The cause is unclear. The effect is that you are being gifted open doors where they have been long closed. It’s time to settle into your own skin and give what you have to give to the world at large. Endless doubt is debilitating. Move on.

SCORPIO (Oct 24 – Nov 21)
As you begin to lose the hard edges that you somehow convinced yourself were keeping you safe, so you start to attract connection and opportunity. Being overly defensive keeps too many people away, to be an effective survival strategy for long. Dare to entertain your deepest imaginings.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Still waters are running deep. Though it looks quiet on the surface, there is a whole world of intensity going on out of view. Your feelings are running through you like an underground stream. As Jupiter moves through Scorpio, so your longing for magic and breakthrough deepens.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
The Taurus Sun is holding the basics of your life in place with a steady hand. This allows you to deal with the challenge of juggling a selection of hot potatoes. Life is surprisingly patient and generous. You are not being rushed. There is enough time at hand for you to figure things out.

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
You are less focussed on obsessing with what you think you should be doing. This gives you the time and space to focus where you need to focus. You are in your element when you bring your unique perspective to deeper issues. Deepen your knowledge of a subject dear to your heart.

PISCES (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
It’s all too easy to get caught in long-term, far ranging, longing and wishing, that presupposes that bliss is somewhere off in the distance. The message for this week is to come back to the joy of immediacy. There are all sorts of gorgeous delights here and now. Take a break from longing.
