Stargazer: May 1, 2019 – May 7, 2019


For All Signs: There is tension in the air for the next two weeks. This is described by Mercury and Venus squaring Saturn and Pluto. All four of the cardinal signs are involved, plus Gemini, Virgo, and Taurus. It looks like a bowling tournament up there in which people are not following the designated rules. Relationships, whether personal or corporate will be sorely tried. The temptation is to throw away any person with whom you have a quarrel. Wait this out in hope of restored order and better clarity by June. Avoid leaping to conclusions over something you think you heard. Double-check your sources for accuracy before acting upon new information.

Aries: Do not carry tales from one to another this week. The messages are likely to become garbled and confusing. If you must say something, give it a potential disqualifier, i.e. “I’m not sure, but I thought I understood ….” It will be a challenge to move forward in any direction. This is not aimed at you personally. It is simply reflecting the circumstances of the times.

Taurus the Bull: (Apr 20—May 20) This is not your best week for getting along with others on the playground or at home. Even if you keep to yourself, you may attract those who want to take pokes at you. Don’t get caught up in a battle of wills. The energies are short-lived, no more than a few days, and you can return to harmony. Don’t make a big deal.

Gemini: You may hear unfortunate news about a friend this week. Your most helpful response is to listen carefully to what you are told. Don’t give advice or directions. Right now that would be rejected. Let the news float in the air for a while. Your friend will bring it up when ready to discuss it.

Cancer: During this period you may be struggling with two priorities. One is the intellectual leader/career type and the other is your need to nurture your primary relationship. The demands/needs of both are in conflict. Make an effort to compromise and bring peace between the two inside your mind and the external circumstances will fall into line.

Leo: The status is fairly quiet this week. Next week there will be more to do than you can manage. Rest and prepare your energies for bold moves soon. You will be needed as a guide and a leader. Now is the time to gather your wits for decisions that are soon to come.

Virgo: You and your partner(s) have significant issues that must be worked through. It may feel like you need a fast solution, but try to go easy on yourself now. Think first and act later. The result will be for the better.

Libra: You began a new relationship, job, task, or project in February 2019. Now it is time to evaluate. At this point there is a new twist that you were not expecting in the beginning. The question is whether or not you are willing to adapt and pour on the energy required to bring it to fruition. Some will forge onward and others will let it go.
Scorpio: It appears as though you are backed into a corner with nowhere to go. Don’t panic. Take a deep breath and hold faith that time will change things to those more in your favor. Struggle will only exhaust you. Be quiet and expect things to evolve.

Sagittarius: Watch your tendency to be overbearing. You have an aspect that can tempt you into hubris and if you follow, others will want to block your actions. You have been physically active lately. However, this aspect can cause you to think you can handle more than you are able. Your back may not appreciate that.

Capricorn: Circumstances involving love life and money may feel a bit tight. You may experience an emotional droop near the first, in which you perceive yourself to be alone in the world. This is a temporary mood, so don’t take it seriously. You know you are prone to overreact at times. Focus instead on the immediate present and don’t project way down the track.

Aquarius: 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, helping when we can. Sometimes our energy is too low to be there for one another.

Pisces: Your normal mental clarity is not up to par this week. If you must make important mental decisions, then take your time and think everything through carefully. Your temptation is to believe what you want to believe. That may not be accurate.
