Weekly Horoscopes for 5/7-5/13, 2018
Hi kids!!! Welcome once again to Mr. Saturn’s Stars.
“Martha: Truth or illusion, George; you don’t know the difference.
George: No, but we must carry on as though we did.
-Edward Albee “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf “
Aries- Don’t take anything for granted this week when it comes to communications. Venus will be passing through that area for you and she’ll be in a hard angle to Neptune behind the scenes, meaning that misunderstandings, misstatements, tall tales, and even out right f*cking lies will all be par for the course. Mercury squaring Pluto to start the week should be of some help amidst all the mendacity, especially as these two tend to come out swinging for the truth whenever they get a chance. Make sure you keep your nose clean so that all the right people end up getting hit and you’re not one of them. By weeks end Mars will be pulling into a square with Uranus, which could see you stressing about everything that’s happened over the last few days, especially if you didn’t do anything about it or took it too seriously. Jupiter closing in on Neptune should help you to calm down if you’re willing to get away by yourself and put things back into perspective. Repeat after me, “Aum.”
Taurus- You’re feeling Uber responsible now as the Sun in your sign is aligning with both Pluto and Mars in Capricorn as they transit your House of Philosophy. Neptune in your House of Dreams is also in alignment with those Capricorn Planets and whenever Mr. Fog is involved it is always important to make sure that your hopes are copasetic with what is actually happening. Venus is in your House of Earnings and that’s generally a good thing, however, because the planet of money is also squaring Neptune make sure that whatever you’ve spent in regards to a group project will be coming back to you, especially if you’ve been investing time and emotion as well as your money. Mars approaching a square to Uranus at the end of the week could be making you anxious about an upcoming trip, don’t let anyone make you feel silly for taking some extra precautions to make sure you’ll have everything you need, better safe than sorry.
Gemini- With Venus in your sign charm is most definitely on your side this month and you’re feeling quite cooperative, just don’t let anyone get the idea that you’re a pushover. Mercury squaring Pluto could serve to expose some shady dealings involving a group or project that you’re involved in, so make sure your hands are clean because your reputation could suffer through guilt by association. If you have been overlooked at work you’ll likely find yourself coming up with an idea or two now that could gain you some long overdue recognition and maybe even some extra do-re-mi as well before things are done. Jupiter retrograde may be bringing up some old issues and you could find yourself revisiting some basic power struggles either at work or in a relationship. If you’re not that person anymore then make sure you don’t screw yourself by making the same old choices that brought you down before.
Cancer- Venus behind the scenes squaring Neptune in your House of Philosophy might have you expecting the worst of people, especially if you’re going to be dealing with individuals who have been a pain in the ass before. A word to the wise, don’t let these people determine the rules of engagement. Jupiter retrograde in your House of Creativity opposing the Sun in your House of Groups will help you process any difficult lessons from the past so that you can transform them into a winning strategy for the future. Mars and Pluto in your House of Partnerships are in a testy square with Mercury in Aries and your House of Career, meaning don’t be shy, ask for what you deserve and you shall receive it, especially if you’ll be facing off with an old adversary who’ll probably end up shooting themselves in the foot because they’ll make the mistake of seriously underestimating the new you.
Leo- Be careful what you wish for as Neptune transits your House of Transformation and squares Venus in your House of Dreams. Ambition will be high as the Sun moves through your House of Career and opposes Jupiter retrograde at the foundation of your chart, which could make you gullible and open to being manipulated either by flattery or false promises. Saturn, Pluto, and Mars together in your House of Work add a very necessary grounding now as they stress hard work and responsibility as the way to success rather than relying too heavily on the smoke and mirrors of any sort of get rich quick sorcery. This is especially true as Mercury and Uranus in Aries move into squares to a pair of those planets I just mentioned in your House of Work, namely Pluto and Mars respectively. The message you should take away from all this is think innovatively but act conservatively, at least for the time being and you won’t be sorry.
Virgo- Be careful of a partner’s advice; they don’t necessarily want you to fail, but success on your terms would change the dynamic of the relationship and threaten their sense of control. You will also need to re-examine your own comfort zone if you feel that you can’t move forward creatively or professionally without their approval. Mercury in your House of Transformation angling against Pluto in your House of Creativity will bring this power struggle out as the week begins, followed by Neptune in your House of Partnerships squaring Venus in your House of Career forcing you to each re-consider what would be lost or gained if the relationship started to operate with a different philosophical approach. Mercury squaring Uranus to end the week could have you looking across a battlefield at each other, but for the time being if you can manage to agree to disagree things will eventually transform for the better.
Libra- As Venus in your House of Philosophy squares Neptune in your House of Daily Routines, this could be the time when you finally recognize how you can be your own worst enemy. Jupiter retrograde in your House of Self Worth opposing the Sun in your House of Transformation will be a tremendous help with this, as each of them in turn will align with Pluto retrograde at the Foundation of your chart, all of this together signaling an inevitable realignment of not only what you see when you look in the mirror, but also what you think others see when you allow them to be that mirror. Both Mercury and Uranus in your House of Relationships will also be entering into squares with Pluto and Mars respectively in your House of Symbolic Foundations, meaning that the time has come for you to recognize just how much of your intended iconoclasm is really just a hidden fear of failure that assumes you can only get to the top by giving someone or something the power of approval over you; ironic, huh?
Scorpio- For weeks now my Scorpion friend I have been hinting that a romance awaits you due to the fact that Neptune has been lingering seductively for some time now in your House of Romance. Well, now I’m going to suggest that for the time being you should try to be careful in your involvements. Why? Because Venus is now transiting through your House of Sex and she is in harsh angle to Neptune, meaning that there is a distinct possibility that simple sexual attraction could be mistaken for love, especially since a Taurus Sun now passing through your House of Relationships is thinking “commitment” while the other person seducing you could be thinking simply, “hit and run. “ Mercury squaring Pluto at the beginning of the week and Mars squaring Uranus at the end of the week could both speak to subterfuge, dishonesty, and a resulting surprise that could be more volatile than satisfying. As a result, be careful and make sure that’s whatever is being offered in the way of romance is something that will truly thrill your heart and not just somewhere else situated a little lower.
Sagittarius- Take any promises that are made to you now with a grain of salt, particularly if what is being offered insinuates there may be strings attached and no clear parameters have been set as to what is expected. Venus in your House of Relationships will have you feeling very cooperative, but the fact that she’s squaring Neptune brings in a strong likelihood of illusion and secrecy in any one on one interactions this week (particularly if they occur behind the scenes, as Jupiter, the planet of excess is there). Mercury squaring Pluto at the beginning of the week and Mars squaring Uranus at the week’s end together speak to clandestine agendas and volatile reactions when someone realizes they’ve been had; try to make sure that someone isn’t you. The Sun in your House of Work aligning with Pluto in your House of Self Worth could see you benefitting from letting go of something; perhaps it should be your need to be all things to all people.
Capricorn- Misunderstandings or miscommunications at work could stem from either you having unreasonable expectations about the timetable for something that needs to be done, or else someone has purposely been misleading you about exactly how much needs to be done. No matter what the case, make sure you don’t try to rush through something just because you’d rather not be doing it in the first place. Mercury squaring Pluto to start the week should make you feel like you want to get to the bottom of exactly what’s going on, while Mars squaring Uranus at the end of the week could represent an unwelcome surprise that you simply aren’t prepared for. The Sun in your House of Creativity aligning with Neptune in the House of Ideas could help you to think outside the box, so make sure you take it slow and pay attention, but most importantly, don’t take anything for granted.
Aquarius- You are feeling an almost desperate need to expand at this time as a result of being convinced that you have exhausted all the possibilities in your current situation. However, with the Sun transiting through your House of Foundations and aligning nicely with Neptune in your House of Self Worth, it will be your ability to mutate rather than a compulsion to burn bridges that will hold the answers you need right now. In other words, a willingness to try a new way of doing something familiar may prove to be more valuable than giving up on what you have to search out something completely new. Mercury in your House of Ideas squaring Pluto behind the scenes is about innovation and approaching something differently than you have in the past, while Mars squaring Uranus later in the week will be about letting the situation guide you rather than trying to control everything that may happen. It’s important for you to realize right now that it’s about tweeking what you have, not charging out to discover something that may not exist just yet.
Pisces- The frustration you are experiencing right now is along the lines of “irresistible force meets immovable object.” The actual manifestation of this dynamic will come into play early in the week when Mercury in your House of Self Worth squares Pluto in your House of Dreams and you are forced to see precisely what is in your way despite what you may have been feeling to the contrary. Later in the week will be when the frustration regarding your situation will really hit, as Mars in your House of Dreams squares Uranus in your House of Self Worth. You will undoubtedly be angry so make sure you find a way to channel your angst so that you don’t end up shooting yourself in the foot or burning a bridge you can’t reconstruct. The good news is that the Sun moving through your House of Ideas is aligning nicely with Neptune in your sign, meaning that if you can calm down then your natural intuition and creativity should come up with something innovative that will allow to live to fight another day.
