Your horoscope for May 10 to 16, 2012
Last week’s super full moon proved to be a major game-changer, especially on the political front. From here on in, the eventfulness of reality gets more insistent, more bombarding, more dismantling, more sweeping—this, in terms of today and our bigger-picture evolution. Encompassing eclipse season, a rare Venus transit, and the first of seven Uranus-Pluto alignments, we have now come to one of the two peaks of 2012.
Over the next week, a grand trine in Earth involving Mercury, Vesta, Mars, and Pluto supports our get-go. Earth is a manifesting element; a grand trine facilitates an ease of access and a creative flow among the planets involved. Sunday and Monday, Mercury—the communications and connect-the-dots planet—picks up added confidence, enterprise, assertiveness, drive, and power. Building to Wednesday, Mars trine Pluto suggests we’ve reached productive time to tackle what’s necessary and work on corrections.
Also this week, the sun, Sedna, and Jupiter are a tight trio. They enlarge the scope of wants and needs, and add extra weight to the critical survival/survivability fulcrum. Sedna and Jupiter are both bounty hunters. The sun brings added consciousness to that which is most precious and worthwhile. On a lighter note, the sun and Jupiter perfecting on Mother’s Day suggests a pampered or indulgent day hits the spot.
A new reality is crystallizing, and it necessitates that we reorient ourselves. Venus, stationing retrograde on Tuesday at 7:33 a.m., begins a vital reassessment cycle.
When attraction planet Venus travels retrograde, she intensifies our magnetic energy fields, allowing us to draw on that which we have already estimated holds the deepest meaning to our soul. Through the end of June, Venus retrograde calls upon destiny to instruct and inform us further. Key relationships and life circumstances now reach a karmic relive or fruition threshold.
March 19 - April 19
You’ve been on a critical learning curve and information-gathering cycle for quite some time now. As well, it’s likely that you’ve toyed with ideas and ambitions, with bridging yourself or reaching out. By defining the reality in more obvious terms, Venus retrograde will now crystallize the pathway that is most productive. What’s put in play now is the skeleton key that unlocks your future.
April 19 - May 20
Thanks to the Earth trine of Mercury, Mars, and Pluto through Wednesday, seek and ye shall get. Venus retrograde will greatly enhance your personal magnetism, creativity, fertility, resourcefulness, and ability to attract. What show-me tune does your inner stereo play: “Deserve reward” or “I’m a walking contradiction”? You’ll call forth the experience your soul desires most. Keep your transmission clear!
May 20 - June 20
Venus in Gemini keeps you on her extended benefits package through August 7. You’ll get preferential treatment from others and from the universe too. While in retrograde, Venus creates a selective viewing channel. You’ll see what’s meant for you to see, and you’ll experience that which is ready for its next chapter. Specific people and key events will introduce you to your future.
June 20 - July 22
There’s a lot more on tap than is obvious on a first peruse. Keep on close watch. Now through the end of June, a fast-moving gestational phase will recalibrate your future. Venus in retrograde provides ample signals and clues; it’s up to you to decipher their importance. Suffice it to say, everything is significant and nothing happens by accident. It’s all key and critical now.
July 22 - August 22
Your reinvented life has been in the works for some time now. Sunday’s Jupiter-sun alignment adds a substantial layer to the evolving reality base. Venus retrograde will push you through the no-turning-back threshold between yesterday and tomorrow. A key person, group, community, or financial backer/lender can prove to be the instrumental catalyst that sets your destiny in faster motion.
August 22 - September 22
You have a lot riding on the moment, and the moment has bet especially high on you too. Your uphill climb, your hopes for the future—the journey is monumental now. Look to Venus retrograde to dismantle a barrier or ceiling. Venus will show you what’s in plain sight and within reach, then what steps you need to take.
September 22 - October 22
A major emotional, physical, or financial investment is required, but there should be little doubt that you stand to gain substantially. Whether it’s a person, place, or thing, Venus retrograde puts you face to face with your karmic destiny. It’s huge and momentous, yet so natural.
October 22 - November 21
You’ve been working your way through a major life transition. Key relationships are woven into this destiny chapter. By finishing the design on your karmic springboard, Venus retrograde will help you to piece yourself back together; to immerse yourself with a more committed heart, mind, and soul; to make the leap into a more unified whole.
November 21 - December 21
The ink is drying on your future. Your personal, social, and professional involvements will crystallize, your financial prospects too. Venus retrograde is a time to acclimatize yourself, switch your reference point from what was to what is, move the karmic learning forward, and make good on your promise to yourself.
December 21 - January 20
The stars stack the deck in your favour this week. Sunday’s sun-Jupiter conjunction bestows even more. Venus retrograde can enhance your relationship with the powers that be. The time is ripe for a new line of work, training, upgrades, improvements, transitions, or trial runs.
January 20 - February 18
January 20–February 18
Through the beginning of August, Venus sets major wheels in motion. Love, children, money, luck, creative flow—while Venus travels retrograde, your draw-down of destiny is particularly intensified. The past flicks the timer switch on your future. Although you’ll duplicate from another time and space, the karma is primed for a new script to be written.
February 18 - March 19
Plans, creative ideas, or money-making ventures can take on a life of their own. If you have something to say, now is the time. Venus retrograde is platform-setting for matters to do with home, family, material comfort zones, and real estate. The karmic transition time line shortens.
