For All Signs:   Mercury, ancient messenger god, is unusually busy throughout this week.  This suggests that most of us will be preoccupied with communication in one form or another.  There may be many phone calls, messages, letters, quick conversations, rapid decisions, and/or papers to write.  The period is favorable for probing into causes and accessing the bottom line to any matter.  Beware of the tendency to jump to conclusions or take action before all the facts are clear.  Remind yourself of how the old “gossip” game is played and don’t take what you hear very seriously until you have found a second, reliable source.

Aries:  The planet/comet Chiron entered your sign last month and will be traveling with you for five years.  Chiron was the first centaur and became a known healer.  As Chiron traverses your sign, you will experience healing on both physical and emotional levels.  Those born early in the sign will feel its effects soon.

Taurus:  Necessary expenses (those not of the “fun” type) may develop this week.  If not that, you could be just having a little blue mood.  It is one of those times when we become aware that our loved ones can never know or understand fully what is inside of us.  This is an existential dilemma that everyone encounters now and then.  It will pass quickly.

Gemini the Twins: (May 20 — June 21) This is a time that favors travel, legal interests, publishing, and dealings with the internet.  You will be running many errands and taking pleasure in the freedom to get out and flap your wings.  This energy continues with you throughout next week as well.

Cancer: You may be taking a sober look at one or more relationships.  Even the very closest friends cannot know each other from the inside.  Sometimes we forget this fact and need to become aware that we are actually separate beings, sharing when we can.  Sometimes our energy is too low to be there for one another.

Leo:  The time is right to make improvements in all your relationships.  Circumstances will make it easy to work out whatever difficulties you might have had with friends or partners.  You are feeling well and can defeat any competitor.  You can easily stay on target with your goals now.

Virgo: This week and next week will probably be the busiest of the whole year.  You’ll be traveling hither and yon, maybe in multiple directions.  Concentrate on keeping track of small items, such as keys and credit cards.  Details will nag you like pecking ducks, but overall you will have a good time.

Libra: You may experience some physical discomfort due to environmental stressors at home or work.  Those who suffer allergies need to use special caution in avoidance this week.  Your physical cycle is on a mild dip.  Rest plenty and take your vitamins.  You may need to take a temporary break in your workout regimen.

Scorpio:  This is a fine week to run a race or climb a mountain.  But save some time to attend to your Significant Other.  Your communications are open and honest, just the right combination to work things out.  If either of you has carried a grudge, put it out there on the table and be willing to play fair while you find a solution.

Sagittarius:  This is a positive week in which your faith in yourself and all humankind is supported and nurtured by the people and circumstances in your path.  Hopefully you are aware of a type of joy that is beyond mundane experiences of life. One caution:  keep one foot on the ground.  The earth has its rules also. It is easy to believe what you wish now.

Capricorn:  Don’t allow fear and pessimism to interfere with your pleasure in life.  The blues may be your companion for a couple of days over the weekend, but the cloudy time is short.  There is a female mother-like person who would like to support you.  Don’t ignore it or turn her away.

Aquarius:  The week begins with high energy and a desire to achieve goals.  Your relationship to children or lovers is supportive and loving.  You may experience some physical discomfort due to environmental stressors at home or work.  Those who suffer allergies need to use special caution in avoidance this week.

Pisces: This is a time in which you are unusually aware of your spiritual self.  You will be recognizing things of life for which you are grateful. You prefer to seek the high road and maintain a positive attitude in spite of any difficult circumstances.  You can see a bigger picture now.  Hold onto it.
