Horoscope for the week beginning May 25
Tip of the Week
Gemini time has begun. It began with the Moon in Leo, Mercury in Taurus and Venus in Cancer. These together reveal the signs of the season as we like to experience it – beautiful and abundant. This occurs with the Taurus New Moon cycle underway and Uranus in Taurus and Mars in Aquarius. Each of these marks a new cycle and represent the current overlay pattern, amidst deeper cycle layers as well.
This comes as a brief reprieve from the Mars/Uranus square, which can be traced to the external synchronicities of the violent uprisings in Gaza, the face-off between Alberta and British Columbia over the Kinder-Morgan pipeline here in Canada, disastrous flooding and the erupting volcanoes around the world. As ever, there are many levels and layers of existence, where utter beauty shines forth even amidst social, political and economic conflict and violence and dramatic upheavals linked to natural processes. Measuring the synchronicities of such events is an important feature of astrology and can be applied to both individual and personal destinies as well as social and collective dynamics.
The background layers include Jupiter in Scorpio and Chiron in Aries, both linked to Mars. In the archetypal scheme of things, Mars is about assertion, action, and aggression too. Mythically, Mars is the god of war. Although often interpreted as the planet of desire, Mars is more accurately interpreted as the actions taken to satisfy desires which can be traced back to Venus especially.
Currently, Venus is in Cancer which is linked to security and Mars is in Aquarius which suggests that survival instincts are extra stimulated now and actions taken to respond to them could come suddenly, unexpectedly and with surprising force. Watch for the synchronicities of this over the coming days and weeks.
May 25 – 31
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
The pace of things is accelerating for you as your attention is directed to focus on a variety of fronts simultaneously. This includes home and family and garden too. If you do not have a garden to tend, you will at least find satisfaction in natural and beautiful settings. Meanwhile, a push to lay claim to latent talents and other treasures has begun.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
A dramatic push to break through existing patterns that may up until now be described as static has begun. The signs of this new dynamic may have emerged several weeks ago but now it is here and in full force. A learning curve is implied and could manifest as hands-on training. Positively, professional advancement and financial increase are featured.
Deep within your being major shifts have begun. As ever, what these depend on the specifics of your destiny and circumstance. However, they can be described as an awakening or a realization that change is inevitable. Either way, activations of a driving urge to push onward and forward is indicated. It might be registering in your mind as, ‘now or never’.
Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)
Current cycles are activating a deeper sense of your individuality. With this comes a creative urge that might best be satisfied with an investigation into key investments. Invention and design are also featured. These could manifest as external interests but are stimulating your ambitions. Taking actions to feel more secure and stable is part of this plot.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)
Waves of changes continue to wash in on your public and professional shores. These are also causing a stir on relationship fronts and quite possibly with mixed review. As ever, pleasing all the people all the time is as likely as thinking you can jump and land on the moon. So, this could be the end for some relationships but will open the doors to new ones altogether.
Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)
An awakening of higher perspectives is underway. These are directly linked to outer relationships and to your work rhythms, style, and strategy. Extra efforts are required for success and these are linked to deciphering how you can foster new and better relationships with clients, colleagues and family and friends too.
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Some major shifts and changes are underway, perhaps especially in the financial department. These could also manifest as accessing the talents and resources of new players suddenly entering your stage. Gathering new tools and implementing previously untried or even considered strategies could lead to a breakthrough you have been praying for.
Advancing your position requires the discipline and effort to gain new knowledge. The underside of this is that it may require that you replace existing perspectives as opposed to them simply exist alongside the old ways. Moves and renovations are also featured, whether literal or psychological. The main emphasis is on improvement.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Things could not continue as they have and now the push to cooperate with the flow of changes has arrived. You may have to overcome resistances stemming from attachment to the way things are. Ironically, these may not be what you actually want or need, but then that is how powerful our attachment to our comfort zone can be.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
You may be on the verge of a creative breakthrough. Although your ambitions are growing steadily, proceeding carefully and diplomatically implies strategy. Your gut may be telling you that proceeding this way is extra important now. Much has to do with aligning with the person you feel you are at this stage of your journey because it is not entirely who you used to be.
The changes that are brewing now are very significant. They will likely produce shifts and moves to an entirely new living situation and/or way of life. These may not occur right away, but all the signs and indications are there. Positively, these may manifest as some dreams coming true. However, you have to face your fears and enter the unknown.
Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)
A steady stream of new perspectives continues to flow in your mind. Positively, these are manifesting as fresh creative ideas that you feel determined to act on. The larger flow has been guiding you for some time to see a bigger picture. Now it is time to act upon them and this requires inner work to get clear on your resolve and follow through.
