Week of: May 6 - May 12
It's another Monday the Thirteenth. Not a happy day at all, now is it? Of course, the wisdom about Monday the Thirteenth is not derived from usual sources. No, I first learned about this horrible freak of nature through the comics. And my life, and now yours, will never be the same.
Aries : This week starts out with you actually willing to sit and listen to some one pour his or her heart out for a while. You have sympathy. You care. Your normal rash response is taken in a much different format as you display kindness and compassion. Then the week gets to you, and this kindly attitude goes away. But there, for one albeit brief and shining moment, we all thought that the Aries was a new a different person. Surprise, the old you is back by Friday.
Taurus : Well, there are still a couple of planets really stirring up the stew in Taurus this week. Mars, the odd god of War, sometimes called the little red one, is activating a good deal of positive Taurus energy this week. And Retrograde Mercury, the odd god of lost mail, is still spinning backwards and making life that much worse. So what will it be? New car? Lost papers? Flip the coin and pray for the best. In the meantime, it would be wise to double check all your work. I don't think you are quite ready for the new car.
Gemini : I told you about the cruel joke the heavens are playing on you -- the Mercury in Taurus, Venus in Gemini deal. Well, these feelings of being split, just like the classic Gemini archetype, really fit. Don't know which way to go? Go fishing or draw small stars? Whatever you do, don't panic, because such an action will avail you naught. The hardest thing for you to do this week is to keep from spinning in circles like a top. And talk about feeling like one of the twins this week!
Cancer : I know you feel like this is a bad week. Well, maybe it is. Perhaps it's just a Cancer thing, too, with you being all moody and depressed. Look on the bright side, other signs are suffering more than you. Go and read what it says for Gemini this week, and that should make you feel better. Of course, all that Gemini misdirection might confuse you, too, so think about reading Capricorn as well. Oh those silly planets.
Leo : Every once in a long time, there is a good. Every once in a much longer time, there is a series of good days. As long as you are getting over the trauma and avoiding conflict, you will find that this can be a most excellent week. The changes which didn't work last week are bound to take effect next week. Now that you know that, you can rest easy, even act a little smug.
Virgo : Still reeling in the romance? That scenario is going okay? There is one thing that I should warn you, since this looks a fairly new romance for you: When you start a new project (romance is a project) under the auspices of Mercury being backwards, there is usually a short lived nature to it. As long as you make adjustments for the ephemeral quality of this new project, you will find that, contrary to what other folks are saying, the romance is proceeding smoothly.
Libra : There is some interesting energy which is forcing a few things to the top for you lucky Libra's. Some projects left over from some time ago has recently come to fruition. Now, you have to turn your attention elsewhere because you complete one of the goals. What's next? A little well-deserved rest and relaxation would be a good idea.
Scorpio : There's an axiom from Cowboy Country which is more than appropriate for you Scorpio's this week, "It's easier getting on the bull than getting off the bull." For those of you who really don't get the analogy, well, perhaps you had better just stay in bed this week. Actually, though, it will a be a good week as long as you remember what part of the bull is the business end.
Sagittarius : I guess that you have found this to be a most unsettling period of time, and there is nothing that I can say or do that will rectify this feeling which are experiencing. Occasionally, times are tough. Other Astrologers will tell you that this is a good time to make money. The only thing I would spend any money on this week is a kindly Astrologer. Like myself.
Capricorn : Sorry about this one, but it looks like the moodiness has finally set back in. I know I won't win any favorites with THAT prognostication, but realize this: as long as you have moods, you can use them to your advantage. And besides, with all the mood swings, you can get a lot more accomplished than you would if you were out and out angry. Go with the flow this week.
Aquarius : Romantic winds of change are heating up this week. That much is sure. Which way these winds of change blow, that much is unsure. It's hard to p[predict for Aquarius because you guys never know which way you are going to go until the last minute. So? So be prepared for some changes. That's all I can offer this week. Bet you will like the outcome, though.
Pisces : Let me tell you, a Pisces in love is a pretty thing. Really. Those big Piscean eyes turn all goo-goo, and that normal, dream - like trance state you call reality is further heightened by the endorphins resulting from love, well, the image is almost too good to be true. I should just REMIND YOU that Mercury is backwards right now, and this feeling is merely a FEELING and it probably won't last. But do you listen to me?
