For All Signs: This week’s cosmic item is the 135 degree angle from Jupiter to Uranus. Classical astrology interprets this as a “sudden break for freedom.” It sometimes brings unexpected opportunities for change, but we must use our best judgment on whether the change is favorable for the long haul. Many of us will be drawn to create change for its own sake, which may not be for the better. This particular cycle originated with the conjunction of Jupiter and Uranus in the spring of 2010. Events of the present time may represent the further development of whatever was initiated then. The effects of this aspect do not have to occur this particular week, but are in orb through this summer. I have seen this aspect in the past at times just before major shifts in the markets.
Aries: You have arrived at a turning point with respect to one or more significant relationships. Think about what you started two years ago. It may have been a new relationship or a fresh creative venture. Now is a time of full maturity of that relationship or new beginning. This is the time to pour more effort and some financial resources if you wish to claim it as yours.
Taurus: Please read the lead paragraph because it pertains to you. Unexpected changes come from the territory of partner’s resources, insurance payoffs, tax surprises, investment changes, inheritance and/or legacies.
Gemini the Twins: (May 20 — June 21) Venus enters your sign this week and will be traveling “with you” through all of June. Her presence gives you an air of poise and people will simply like how you look. Often when Venus is prominent we become more interested in art forms and want to make things in the environment more attractive. We are also more interested in beautifying ourselves.
Cancer: A partnership or a significant relationship that began in late spring of 2002 is arriving at a point of full ripeness. If it has been good, you can review it now with a sense of satisfaction. This is the time in which you cultivate the soil for future growth, or let it begin to die naturally.
Leo: There is the possibility that you will attract someone who is needy, causing you to feel that you should help. Before you go very far, talk to your friends and ask who this person is. He or she might be a “vampire,” one who takes far more than he can give. On a totally different plane, you may have a significant encounter with one that wakens your spirituality.
Virgo: Listen to Shakespeare: “Neither a borrower nor a lender be…/for loan oft loses both itself and a friend.” Opportunities come your way for one or more creative ventures from a distance, via the law, education, travel, or the internet.
Libra: You may feel a sense of abandonment from partner(s), clientele, or those with whom you consult (lawyers, doctors). It hurts for a short time, but soon you will find ways to fill in the gap. You need more information to assist you in understanding this loss. Don’t allow others to lay blame upon you for things you haven’t done.
Scorpio: This is a time that will test the strength of your relationships. Dormant or hidden tensions that are gnawing at the edges of any relationship are likely to become apparent now. Make an effort to recognize the difference between ego conflicts and genuine difference of opinion. In ego conflicts we just posture, wave our feathers and refuse to hear the Other.
Sagittarius: Give special attention to the lead paragraph because it pertains to you. An opportunity may come your way that seems out of the blue. It requires that you use your skills in a totally different manner than you have tried before. Go with it because it expands your territory and will be a fun kick to try. It will grow your territory.
Capricorn: Stay aware of your body and be sure to listen to it when it says “Stop!” Your physical cycle is at a temporary low, leaving you open to potential accidents or injuries. If you feel tired, give yourself a break and rest. It is a novel thing for you to do, but you need to reduce your stress at this time.
Aquarius: Read the lead paragraph carefully. Uranus is a planet of surprise and it rarely brings what you expect to happen. In the solar system it deviates from the “rules” by rolling on its belly around the sun. The surprise of Uranus may come from outside yourself or it may be a sudden and unexpected change in attitude on your part.
Pisces: Something has developed that undermines your sense of security. It may relate to family and property matters. There is a sense of loss involved. Remember that nothing remains the same. Change is in the nature of things and our relationships. Nature abhors a vacuum and something or someone else will fill that empty place.
