Horoscope for the Week beginning May 15

Michael OConnorBy Michael O’Connor

Tip of the week

As the New Moon in Aries cycle winds down to its final days it will pass the torch on to Taurus on May 17.

This new cycle occurs on the eve of Mercury turning retrograde (May 18 – June 11) for its tri-annual three-week cycle. What this suggests is that Mercury will be stationary (appears to be at a standstill) in the New Moon chart. This will bring added focus and will increase the emphasis on communications among people. This is especially true with Mercury in its own ruling sign of Gemini where it will remain for the duration of its retrograde cycle.

Mercury retrograde in Gemini is generally the best sign positions for it to be when retrograde. However, the end result for people will depend on how it is situated and the aspects it makes in their own birth chart. This is ever the case.

Mars is also in Gemini along with Mercury and its exact degree position at the time of the New Moon suggests that it will influence a rather energetic assertion to get to the bottom of things. Regarding the theme of increased communications, it suggests that people will want answers especially regarding larger political trends.

Venus meanwhile in Cancer indicates increased concern about security in general and this naturally includes money. Yet questions regarding Bill C-51 linked to themes of security wagered against those of privacy is raising concerns and is already and will likely be strongly on the airwaves.

How Mercury retrograde will play out ever depends upon the particulars of one’s birth chart and circumstances. From the standpoint of Horoscopes or ‘Solar Chart Astrology’, it could prove more challenging for Taurus, Cancer, Virgo and Libra than the other signs if one of these is your Ascendant.
