Your horoscope for May 17 to 23, 2012
Venus is retrograde from May 15 to June 27. Most think of Venus as the planet of love, but, to describe her more accurately, she is the planet of desire and lust. While in retrograde, Venus takes us through an intensified re-evaluation chapter regarding personal, social, and intimate relationships, finances and material investments, sexual, biological, and reproductive matters, and core survival needs. Venus retrograde poses an important question: what do you desire the most? Are you there yet? If not, how far off the mark do you stand, and what steps do you need to take in order to get yourself back on track?
Just recently, you may have noticed a developing awareness, mindset, or trend. A plan, dialogue, relationship, or particular circumstance may be building, too. Sunday’s solar eclipse in mobilizing Gemini will ratchet it up a notch or two. An eclipse can create eventfulness on the actual date, but its catalytic influence can be witnessed in the days, weeks, and months that proceed or follow.
The sun enters Gemini on Sunday at 8:11 a.m. Beginning at 3:58 p.m. PST, the solar eclipse sets all things and people under Gemini’s rule into action. By Sunday evening, the solar eclipse moon will aspect Neptune and by Wednesday, the sun will do the same. With this planet in the mix, we are certain to be exposed to more than we could’ve foreseen.
March 19 - April 19
Perhaps you already know what destiny holds for you, or perhaps it is still beyond your view. Your stars display multiple hot-iron prospects on the horizon. There’s more than one instrumental person standing on the crossover bridge with you, too. Sunday’s solar eclipse acts as a major connect-the-dots catalyst. You’re signed up for something big.
April 19 - May 20
Core inner change has been in the works for some time. Whether you appreciate the significance of the moment or not, you stand poised at a critical fork in the road. Life’s exceptional synchronicities will soon take you by surprise. In fact, you could be blown away. The days following the solar eclipse on May 20 are exposing and revealing.
May 20 - June 20
All Geminis will feel the catalytic affects of the eclipse and the June 5 Venus transit, but those born May 20, 26 to 29, and June 4 to 6 will feel the strongest impact. The current stellar influences are so major, you can’t help but feel an overwhelming sense of “been here before”. You are now sufficiently primed to blast through your soul’s writer’s block.
June 20 - July 22
The divine order of this precious moment along your evolutionary timeline is becoming far too obvious to miss. Do you feel blown away? That sense of being overwhelmed by outside forces or the bigger picture will soon switch tracks. You’ll be surprised at how fast you can acclimatize to your budding new reality. By the way, it’s here to stay.
July 22 - August 22
The trends and tides are about to shift. Stay alert and watch for the bits and pieces to suddenly make more sense. Synchronistic news, messages, or key messengers will connect the big dots for you. The solar eclipse sparks a lucrative discovery chapter. You’ll soon open up to a whole new world of social or financial resources. A brand-new life awaits you.
August 22 - September 22
New starts, fresh starts, the time is exceptionally ripe. The writing on the wall grows more insistent now. It says rip the ceiling down. It is an ideal time to revamp your priorities and commitments, to invest in yourself, and step into a completely reinvented life. A new career or business, partnership, or family setup appears to be in the works already.
September 22 - October 22
Perhaps you’ve read that Saturn is exalted in Libra. If you don’t understand what that means, just know your cart is in the goodie-bag aisle now. Saturn continues in your sign through October 5. Your prospects will now multiply and mushroom. Along with the gifting solar eclipse of May 20, Venus and Saturn now transform the potential into the actual. Desire, believe, achieve.
October 22 - November 21
Through the end of June, Venus retrograde asks you to reassess your options, plans, and investments. Watch for Sunday’s solar eclipse and the days that follow to clear up your lingering doubt or confusion. That “a-ha” moment can take you by surprise. Don’t discount those fleeting impressions or thoughts. They could lead you to your golden-ticket solution.
November 21 - December 21
You may not be as clued in or as on top of it all as much as you think you are. Over this next week, someone or some new trend is likely to get your attention, perhaps unexpectedly so. Do not underestimate your potential or the needs of others. An introduction or first look-see could prove to be so much more.
December 21 - January 20
Just when you think you are starting to figure it out, more comes at you. Watch for Sunday’s solar eclipse to put more into play, especially regarding work, health, training, expense, communication, or mobility matters. A format, formula, or schedule change is needed. Another test, look-see, talk, or opinion can be necessary too.
January 20 - February 18
Sunday’s solar eclipse catapults you into a personal and creative growth spurt. Conjure, ponder, plan, talk it up, express yourself. Try new ideas or a new lifestyle. Regarding social, material, and love-life matters, destiny now lays the cards on the table. It’s simply a matter of working out your next steps and walking yourself through them.
February 18 - March 19
One thing hinges on another. The growing uncertainty or time biding can be more than you feel can cope with emotionally or materially, but this will soon change. A few days past Sunday’s solar eclipse, you should see the wheels set themselves into motion. Real estate, home, and family matters will soon move faster along.
