The thoughts, the feelings, the trends, the action-taking—although the first week of June can dial down the intensity or pressure, don’t underestimate the moment. This seeding time is one of great potency.
On Victoria Day, Mars ended a two-month retrograde. As of Sunday, Ceres ends the retrograde tour she began in late February. Their extended tour of Libra has kept matters of diplomacy, justice, morality, and social rights fired up since the end of last year. It’s likely you’ve noticed the heightened karmic intensity in your private life too. Once a planet completes retrograde, it’s on the correc-tive, harvest, and implementation leg of its journey. Instead of reconciliation with the past, Mars and Ceres in Libra will now focus their attention on reconciliation with the present. For the next few weeks, Venus—freshly in Taurus—offers something more substantial to work with.
Early Thursday morning, Mercury enters Cancer. This will help us to tap into our intuitive wisdom; to nurture, nourish, and empathize; to both give and receive more comfort and support. The weekend is particularly primed in this regard.
Put confidence, creativity, and “I deserve” into action, and the week ahead could be especially lucrative. Follow the path of least resistance and most promise. Don’t push what isn’t coming naturally. As of next Saturday, Mercury will begin a three-week retrograde tour.
March 20 - April 19
The stars now move you to the next platform. For the next few weeks, Venus in Taurus gives you more to work with and helps you make better use of time and talents, too. Devote the weekend to self-care and home care, and cozy up for some quality bonding, too. The week ahead is productive for building bridges and creative development.
April 19 - May 20
Through June 23, Venus in Taurus enhances what Mother Nature gave you. Still, you’re wise to help her along. Upgrades to your physical appearance as well as social and professional profiles are time, money, and effort well spent. Through next Friday, Mercury helps you to convey and communicate with great feeling. Instant rapport, that duck-to-water feeling—yes, that’s the ticket!
May 20 - June 21
Mercury says goodbye to your sign on Thursday, but he’ll return for a visit from mid June to mid July. Mercury’s temporary stay in Cancer turns attention to your comfort zones, to nesting, securing, and procuring. For the next few weeks, Venus in Taurus urges you to seek more “off-line” time. Feel, rather than think, your way along.
June 21 - July 22
Mercury is only a temporary visitor to Cancer, so as they say, make hay while the sun shines. This Mercury transit offers you a fresh boost of physical energy, confidence, and inspiration. Now to next Friday is an optimal time to jump into something new and see what it might do for you. Take a risk, rely on instincts, start a conversation.
July 22 - August 22
Narrow your focus to what’s most profitable or appealing. Aim for quality over quantity. Venus in Taurus helps you to gain better control where you’ll appreciate it the most. This transit also puts you in a more favourable light with the powers that be. Monday/Tuesday dishes up your best take-charge, strut-your-stuff, and make-it-happen days.
August 22 - September 22
It could be the writing on the wall that now grows more obvious, or perhaps it’s a newfound sense of confidence with history to support it. Either way, Venus and Mercury give you a better sense of where the future is heading. Through Tuesday, it could be out of sight, but it isn’t out of mind. Tuesday/Wednesday, you’re on the go again.
September 22 - October 23
Things could get more luscious in the sex department thanks to Venus, newly in Taurus. Financial prospects are enhanced by this Venus transit too. Aim to make the most of it through next Friday. Plant seeds now and get the foundation laid while the stars are on a good move-along. Starting a week from Friday, Mercury retrograde can sidetrack or derail you.
October 23 - November 22
You’ll get full value out of your conversations, entertainment choices, and social activities this weekend. In fact, the stars are at optimum for the whole week ahead, so reach out, pitch it, create it, upgrade it, or go exploring. Monday/Tuesday, put on a good show, aim for attention. Results can be satisfying. Wednesday/Thursday, put added focus on the details and your health.
November 22 - December 21
Venus in Taurus now loans you better organization and stick-to-it power. Your workday and workout should prove more productive, too. Still, know that there is only a short window of opportunity, so make good on it while you can. Friday/Saturday, cozy up to one you love. Monday/Tuesday, you’re at the top of your game. These are your best days to shine—showcase yourself.
December 21 - January 19
Over the next couple of weeks, Venus in Taurus boosts your creativity and love-life prospects. You should feel a greater sense of well-being regarding your kids, too. The weekend can be a time of good sharing and bonding. The week ahead could be easy rolling, especially Wednesday/Thursday. Make full use of your create-it time.
January 19 - February 18
The pace now slows down, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Having more time to recoup or feel your way along is likely to come as a relief. Even if you have to work this weekend, it should be easy to take. Monday and Tuesday are your best days to show up or hook up.
February 18 - March 19
Both Venus in Taurus and Mercury in Cancer enhance your ability to establish good rapport with others, to create, convey, and communicate with great feeling. You don’t have to say much to get your message across; the eyes say it all. Friday/Saturday, romance is sweet, family togetherness too. Monday through Thursday, apply yourself and prosper.
