Stargazer: May 22 –28, 2019


For All Signs:  Mercury, ancient messenger god, is unusually busy throughout this week.  This suggests that most of us will be preoccupied with communication of 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.  Mercury is making challenging aspects along the way, so not everything will be rosy.  This is a time for working out compromises between people, corporations, or countries.

Aries:  Chiron, otherwise known as the wounded healer, has been in your sign since February.  It is probable that you have been more than normally focused on your health during the spring and that may continue a while longer.  You probably have a desire to fix whatever health issues are interfering with you so you can get on with your life.  It is a timely and a right thing to do.

Taurus:  Whatever you do in the territories of short distance travels, connecting with siblings and roommates, or engaging neighbors is favored at this time. Education, studying, or teaching would be satisfying.  An acquaintance may offer you a hint or suggestion that is absolutely the one thing you need to hear.

Gemini the Twins: (May 20 — June 21)  Please see the lead paragraph because Mercury is your ruler.  You may be hither and thither, scattering yourself everywhere, talking with everyone.  Use discipline with your mind and activities in order to accomplish what you really need.  These aspects can send you all around the block without gaining any traction.

Cancer:  Chronic health issues may require attention this week.  Focus your attention on that which gives you a sense of peace, comfort, and freedom from the insanity of this mundane world.  You will feel better instantly.

Leo:  Your daily routines, along with those with whom you work, may present challenges this week. You may encounter a stumbling block in your path. One part of your mind wants to give up. But the better part of you knows this is a “test” of your intentions. Facing it and overcoming the trial will make you stronger and you will be more confident on the other side. Go for it!

Virgo:  You may need to concentrate in order to avoid critics, whether they be internal or external. Instead of blame, use the discipline to tackle a project that requires concentration. Avoid contracts and business negotiations right now because misunderstandings may develop.

Libra:  This is a good week for introspection and contemplation.  Meditation, counseling, and/or journaling may prove useful.  You have a need to dig through the mental chatter and find what is real within yourself.

Scorpio:  Chiron is moving slowly through your own 6th house of health over the next 7 years.  You may find yourself physically troubled by dis-eases that are hard to diagnose.  Perhaps the best healers for you during these years will be alternative, such as homeopaths and/or acupuncturists.  Allergies may develop, especially to chemicals.  

Sagittarius: You may be tempted to spend more money than you have this week or make other impulsive moves that you might regret later.  This is a good period to work on projects that will improve your life in the future.

Capricorn:  There are elements of obsessive thinking and criticism involved in this week’s interactions.  Be intentional about keeping an open mind and don’t insist on a black and white answer.  It is possible someone is demanding this from you, but you can resist falling into that trap.

Aquarius:  Beware of the tendency to obsess and worry over matters that may never happen.  You are tempted to see the world through a dark lens this week and you may think that is the true version.  It’s more likely that the pessimistic view is extreme.  Don’t ruminate.  Do what you can and then let it go.

Pisces:  Give attention to experiences that seem like “coincidences,” because they offer a message.  Listen carefully for that small voice that whispers in your ear.  Aspects favor play, fun, love and romance.  If you spend time with children it will be meaningful.
