Weekly Horoscopes for 5/6-5/12, 2019
Aries- Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Career are likely stalling your ambitions from moving forward at this time, which undoubtedly offends your usual full speed ahead mentality. Mercury and Uranus in your House of Self Worth will be conjunct by the middle of the week, no doubt fueling anxiety and motivating you to start venting on somebody if shit doesn’t start moving along the way it should. It is important now to try and remain patient and remember the old adage, “All things must pass.” Let Venus in your sign and Mars in your House of Communication give you a little tutorial on persuasion and charm, which will probably work out a lot better than smashing someone over the head with what you want them to do.
Taurus- Your usually placid nature could end up becoming quite anxiety ridden at this time as two very volatile planets that rule the nervous system, Mercury and Uranus, pass through your sign. The unsettledness of also having both Saturn and Pluto retrograde together in your House of Philosophy isn’t helping much, as those two will serve to either make you want to flee like a rat from a sinking ship or else set the house on fire for the insurance. Of course neither extreme is useful, so try and listen as charming Venus behind the scenes and Mars in your House of Self Worth attempt to motivate you to be resourceful and, most importantly, optimistic. Listen to Neptune in your House of Dreams as he aligns with a Cancer Moon midweek to try and steer you toward the high road…….and no, that doesn’t mean you should self medicate.
Gemini- Mercury and Uranus behind the scenes could motivate you to try and continue with a disingenuous strategy in regards to getting your way in a particular situation. At the same time, Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Transformation aligning with Neptune in your House of Public Image could end up making any subterfuges you attempt at this time appear quite transparent to anyone who is paying attention; in short, it’s likely that no one will believe your lies right now other than you, so a word to the wise…come clean and the mess in question may end up being manageable on the back end. Venus in your House of Groups and Mars in your sign will give you plenty of energy, although try to utilize this power slowly and steadily with a methodical plan rather than firing random shots in the air and hoping to hit something.
Cancer- The way things are now could be quite stressful for you as both Mercury and Uranus, the nervous system twins, come together to hold hands in your House of Groups. This doesn’t necessarily have to be like running into the two creepy little girls from “The Shining,” particularly if you can decide to focus instead on keeping a smile on your face, especially as Venus passes through your House of Public Image and aligns with Mars behind the scenes. If you can adopt a “kill them with kindness” attitude, then you just might stand a chance as Saturn and Pluto ravage your House of Open Enemies and cause some long term adversaries to shoot themselves in the foot instead of abusing you with their hubris. You will be having a personal New Moon this week as well, so let Neptune in your House of Philosophy lead you beyond a need for childish emotional safety to the higher ground of spiritual enlightenment. Namaste.
Leo- As a fixed sign you like things to be regular and dependable, although right now with Mercury and Uranus colliding in your House of Career things on the job are anything but, especially as the Moon in your sign during the week could see you losing control of yourself if someone else’s incompetence ends up foiling any of your well laid plans for the coming weekend. If you find yourself asking in exasperation, “what am I doing in this madhouse,” don’t expect either Saturn or Pluto in your House of Routines to tell you what you’d like to hear, particularly with Neptune in your House of Transformation waiting around for things to change on their own when you need to change them yourself.
Virgo- Have you had enough yet? Mercury and Uranus skidding into each other in your House of Philosophy would indicate that perhaps you have, particularly with Venus in your House of Transformation squaring off against both Saturn and Pluto in your House of Creativity, making it hard to continue doing the same thing over and over while hoping for a different outcome. On the other hand, Jupiter retrograde in your House of Foundations is aligning quite beneficially with Venus, meaning that perhaps the universal plan all along was that you’d need to get pissed off before you would actually act in your own best interest and do something different? Maybe up until now it was just easier to complain and remain complacent? As the Sun aligns with Neptune in your House of Relationships (and Open Enemies) perhaps now you’re seeing exactly how a partner has been manipulating you by acting like they’re so disappointed all the time?
Libra- With the Sun, Mercury, and Uranus all going through your House of Transformation, expect the unexpected this week. Venus in your House of Relationships will be aligning with lucky Jupiter as it retrogrades through your House of Communication, meaning that perhaps there is a good chance that a seed you sowed sometime in the past may actually bear some surprising fruit. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Foundations have been sounding the death knell on the old you and the outmoded circumstances of your past, so is it really a surprise that eventually a dark night of the soul would turn into a brand new day as the world turns? Mars in your House of Philosophy would indicate that if something does unexpectedly change for the better, you’d do well to be ready to hop aboard that tramp steamer as it sets sail to some unexpected destination where the new you awaits!
Scorpio- Having both Uranus and Mercury conjunct in your House of Relationships now might mean that somebody close may surprise you this week, which could be either a good thing or a bad thing. Neptune in your House of Creativity and Fun aligning with Mercury could mean that you’ll weather this surprise with the necessary aplomb, although you may still be weirded out by the circumstances anyway. Venus in your House of Health aligning nicely with Jupiter retrograde in your House of Self Worth could have you finally understanding the cumulative effects of a course you’ve been pursuing for a while, meaning that where once your life had seemed rudderless, now you’re following a definite course due north to feeling better. As the Lunar Arc transits across the top of your chart expect to be a little more in demand than usual, although over the weekend you may just want to do your own thing despite the good intentions of others……No worries.
Sagittarius- Jupiter retrograde in your sign this week will be aligning with charming Venus in your House of Creativity and Romance, so don’t be surprised if an old flame resurfaces with a new box of matches. Of course at the same time Venus will also be squaring both Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Self Worth, therefore, make sure that this blast from the past isn’t looking to burn down your self esteem again rather than toasting marshmallows next to a cozy fire. Mercury and Uranus together in your House of Routines could be the writing on the wall that this aforementioned individual will be a disruptive influence indeed, although that may be just what you need to determine once and for all whose interests should start coming first in your interactions with others. You can do bad all by yourself.
Capricorn- Responsibilities, responsibilities, responsibilities, so what else is new? Mars in your House of Routines aligning with Venus at your Foundation may have you craving an escape from your perceived servitude, although Jupiter retrograde behind the scenes aligning with the aforementioned couple might try to suggest that it’s not an escape you need but rather peace of mind. Neptune in your House of Thinking and Short Journey’s will likely suggest meditation or some other esoteric modality and you should probably give it a try if it seems like it might help. Why? Because as Mercury and Uranus bump into each other in your House of Creativity you could encounter a bizarre challenge that has transcendence written all over it if you can just see the forest for the trees. “Somewhere over the rainbow” could be somewhere inside of yourself if you can just manage to experience your mind for once as something other than a dictionary of pejorative terms.
Aquarius- As the Sun, Mercury, and Uranus all pass through your House of Home and Family, you may find yourself feeling very anxious about the security of you and yours. Of course it sucks to feel this way, but with Mars in your House of Creativity, Venus in your House of Communication, and Jupiter retrograde in your House of Dreams and Groups, perhaps the only way your hopes for safety can come true is if you are motivated to follow your intuition out of the box of fearful logic that has you trapped in a past that no longer exists? Of course Saturn and Pluto retrograde have a lot to do with this negative motivation, so rather than partaking in it again, why don’t you instead recognize how doing the same thing over and over hasn’t gotten the result you wanted? No doubt faith will have more than a little bit to do with your ability to change, so as Neptune enters your House of Self Worth be ready to turn paranoia into perceptiveness with a little help from your friends.
Pisces- Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Groups squaring Venus in your House of Self Worth could have you feeling very insecure about being judged harshly in the future, or even failing to attain a goal you’ve set for yourself. On the other hand, Jupiter retrograde in your House of Career aligning nicely with Venus would probably indicate that you’re better prepared than you think for any challenges that may be awaiting you. That’s not to say though that shit won’t get weird, or even crazy, particularly with Mercury and Uranus joining together in your House of Communication and local activities. The trick here is to realize that state of mind is everything, especially as Neptune in your sign lines up with a very practical Sun in Taurus and your House of Thinking. As a famous Occultist used to say, “It’s all in your head, you just don’t know how big your head is.”
