Horoscope for the Week of May 23, 2004

23 May 2004

Tip of the Week:

Many shifts of energy are now underway with the Sun now in Gemini and Venus, Juno and Neptune all retrograde. Venus is also opposing Pluto, challenging us all to maintain our center in the heart, grateful and willing to see things as they are, without blame or judgment, but action. Mercury is also advancing towards a square with Neptune bringing a dreamy and potentially confused focus, inspired and creative at best. Meanwhile Mars will conjunct Saturn in Cancer this week! This is a lethal combination and the atrocities in Iraq, hitting the mainstream media, are a good example. These are challenging aspects and they are effectively reflecting the larger themes of Uranus in Pisces. I will mention again that this aspect is about seeing into the inner depths, the subconscious mind and hidden truths that we tend to deny and repress. The time has come to see more clearly, what is really going on. Uranus will be in Pisces until 2011. This is how we awaken to the realities and needs of our collective humanity.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)

The Gemini Sun has everybody excited and talking! You feel the earth and are grounded and practical. The time has come to plant the gardens. This statement is a metaphor for many aspects of life. Seeds and harvest is the simple strategy of nature and of civilization. The effort and focus on the plan, on the other hand, is where we build our character. Stay calm in the stormy sea and hold the wheel with both hands!

Taurus (Apr 21- May 20)

The time has come to turn to the use of even more of your many talents. You may have to prove yourself a competent juggler and an acrobat as well! See every obstacle in front of you as a created hurdle to clear. Feel deeply, think carefully and pay attention to the kaleidoscope of activity filling your life. Above all, maintain your emotional center and clear the way for new growth processes.

Gemini (May 21 - Jun 20)

What will you Gemini's be up to during this next month! The ambitious and clever Wood Monkey has been patiently waiting. As the Monkey corresponds to the signs Leo, Sagittarius Aquarius and Gemini in Western Astrology, you will notice that your sign is first in line. With Venus retrograde in Gemini signifying increased sensitivity and sensuality, you will be igniting and taming passions!

Cancer (Jun 21 - Jul 21)

In some respects you are eager and ready to charge ahead while in others you are happy to retreat. How will you handle this balancing act? Concentration is a good key word. Can you be active, productive and fulfilled at your own pace quietly and peacefully, even more than usual…? Honour both you need to do and your need to be. Dream sweetly and take notes of insights, experiences and plans.

Leo (Jul 22 - Aug 21)

Gathering with friends new and old is in the spotlight for you while the Sun is in Gemini. The airy qualities of Gemini feed your fires like helium. Blending both what you know and whom you know and how they know you can be fun and practical. This is a good time to work on marketing strategies in particular. Avoid negative and fearful thinking and make at least one powerful decision a day. Clean your mind and your desk so creativity has room to play!

Virgo (Aug 22 - Sep 23)

You have been making every effort to maintain your poise and balance and still keep your stride. You feel expansive and rebellious all at the same time. In many respects, you know that it is time to clean house. This is a good time to go through a review of your life at this stage of the journey. Some things are ending and something new wants to be born. Trust in destiny during the process and let go willingly.

Libra (Sep 23 - Oct 21)

You are suddenly thirsty, for knowledge, insights and answers. Perhaps you are wondering, what is the next best step to take? If the answer is to have more freedom to learn and includes travel and independence, you might be even more excited! Well, the travel may be close by and perhaps you can have the rest. Focus is the key. You might best go for short and varied spurts of activity rather than long hauls. Play with pockets of time for different activities.

Scorpio (Oct 22 - Nov 20)

When the Sun is in Gemini, it is in the House of Scorpio. These technical terms in Astrology tell us more about your sign. Gemini is the sign of the twins and this implies dual desires, especially for Scorpio. Not surprisingly, Scorpio is the one sign most strongly influenced by two planets, Mars and Pluto. Mars is generally more concerned with activity in the outer world while Pluto rules the inner atomic, biological, and psychological and soul realms. Honour both sides for balance!

Sagittarius (Nov 21 - Dec 20)

The Sun in Gemini signifies an important process of keeping your center, particularly over the next couple of months while Venus is retrograde. Your willingness and ability to see yourself as others do, without reaction, judgment or defense, is perhaps your next most important lesson. The more impersonally aware you can be of your patterns and your changing needs the better. Aim to keep everybody happy in the process, including you!

Capricorn (Dec 21 - Jan 19)

You are in the mood to both clean-up unfinished business and swing new deals. Some tough negotiations are quite possible over the next several weeks or so. You are eager to make wise moves and investments. Some Astrologers say that Venus might not be the best time to make large investments. The jury is still out on that one. Keep sorrow and disappointment at bay by staying grateful, positive and non-expectant.

Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 19)

The time has arrived to do a few more tricks. Innovation and creativity are ready to go. Make good use of feelings of invincibility now. Your willingness to go big now could pay of big! However, you will have to maintain a clear focus on your goals. Neptune is making that challenging for many people these days. All the more reason to up the ante on attitude!

Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20)

The lights are all shining on the home front now. I hope that that includes gardening and outside time. It may also include hobbies and/or your home business. Though the weather is pleasant, you may have to focus doubly well over the next few months. This also includes getting close and cozy on domestic and relationship fronts. With flowers everywhere, you have every reason to feel romantic and sensual. Intend to balance love with work and play.
