Horoscope for the week beginning May 1

Michael OConnorBy Michael O’Connor

Tip of the week

May Day, May daze, May days ahead…’ Amidst the sensual and lovely weather of this time of year many important movements are underway. From the astrological perspective, Mercury enters Gemini where it has much to say and on the heels, or is it hooves, of the Taurus New Moon (May 17), the winged messenger turns retrograde (May 18) yet again for the second of its tri-annual three-week retreats. This time in its own sign where Mercury proves extra sharp, we will all be ‘hearing all about it.’

As the Bull watches on and goats push the likes of Bill C-51 forward leading sheeple astray, the rams must decide which side to support. Brutes uphold laws that curtail freedoms and rights and the collective are challenged to see through the darkness of night. Baffled with bull and dazzled with brilliance, many eyes are distracted while real business (as usual…) cut deals behind closed doors favoring the few.

So what are we to do in this time of great deception when private agendas well hidden in plain sight reveal clever intentions to obscure mass perceptions? Among the simpler answers, and spiritual ones too, is to realize how powerful and important your free will is to you. Acknowledge with awareness what you call ‘corruptions projected’ and simply voice your vote as: “No, such actions are not accepted!” Then share your thoughts with those who will hear and with full faith that the universe is all ears. (This riddle will be further unraveled in my newsletter.)

Focus on ideas and actions that support feeling secure.

Scorpio (Oct 22 – Nov 21)

Your relationship world continues to open wide. As eager as you are to engage, you also feel moved to approach things and especially certain people with some caution.
