Your horoscope for May 2 to 8, 2019

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Get ready for a next wave. A new moon in Taurus sets the weekend up as a worthwhile adventure. This new moon also sets the tone through the next full moon (two weeks from now).

      Whether it is the hockey game or something else in play, Sunday could set the future on its course in some definitive, perhaps overriding or springboard way. Mars in Gemini in opposition/Jupiter retrograde in Sagittarius is a trendsetting and traction-gaining influence. Once it hits go, we’ll see a good run out of it. Mars can put a fresh spin on the idea, conversation, or opportunity. Aim for a second chance; take another shot at it; or go for something new. More than one viable option can be up for consideration. Don’t know which way to go? Pause until the best choice or candidate becomes obvious. Spontaneity can deliver, but Mars/Jupiter is also an impetuous combination. Don’t bank on an assumption, opinion, or secondhand information. Get your facts straight.

      Outside of a couple of tough spots, the week ahead is ripe for the picking. On Monday, Mercury begins a two-week stint in Taurus. By Wednesday, Mercury conjoins Uranus in Taurus. Expect a lively go regarding money, the markets, politics, social trends, and news. Sun/Neptune keeps the creative end of things going strong too. Both Mercury/Uranus and Sun/Neptune hold an element of the unexpected. Overall, Wednesday and the first half of Thursday dish up ripe opportunity. Tuesday can be a tough go, to start. Venus/Saturn sets up a hurdle or a battle to face. Extra strain or work is in the mix. Next Thursday, Venus hits big gains with Jupiter and Pluto.

      March 20 - April 20

      Finishing up in Aries and starting the new week in Taurus, Mercury keeps action going strong and the incentive in ample supply. Good for a second wave, a second chance, or taking a fresh shot at it, Mars in Gemini gains even more traction as of Sunday. Tuesday onward, Venus in Aries makes the investment worth your while. First thing Wednesday is especially opportune.

      April 20 - May 21

      Saturday’s new moon sets better-than-average creative potential into play for the next two weeks. Mars is on a ramp-it-up on Sunday. Watch for an idea, conversation, or something more to set wheels in motion. Starting Monday, Mercury into Taurus also supplies fresh fuel. Venus adds pressure on Tuesday. One thing hinges on another. Wednesday/Thursday, instincts and spontaneity net a payoff.

      May 21 - June 21

      Game on! Mars in Gemini in opposition to Jupiter retrograde pumps it up as of Sunday. You aren’t likely to skip a beat with this transit. Expect something new or next to overtake you. While Venus/Saturn continues to build a certain amount of pressure through Tuesday, Mercury—freshly into Taurus and conjunct Uranus early Wednesday—keeps it edgy, exciting, and exceptionally opportune.

      June 21 - July 22

      Saturday’s new moon favours going in a new direction. If you are uncertain what your best play is, simply keep in observation mode. The stars will take the guesswork out of it for you. Sunday, Mars/Jupiter can light a spark or a fuse, perhaps unexpectedly so. Monday/Tuesday, Venus/Saturn moves you past the hard part. Wednesday/Thursday, go for it! Say “yes” to the extra.

      July 22 - August 23

      Did last week get the ball rolling on something major? This next week will continue along a similar yet different track. You can feel it like a second wave or as a fresh springboard. Either way, Saturday’s new moon enhances prospects. The extra responsibility, work, risk, or investment will prove worth it in both immediate and long-range terms.

      August 23 - September 23

      More to explore, to know, and to be gained; Saturday’s new moon colours it in for you in some substantial way. Mars/Jupiter can trigger another go around, second wind, second chance, or something altogether fresh on Sunday. Mercury enters Taurus on Monday, but an undercurrent of uncertainty, edginess, or excitability continues through midweek. Wednesday is especially opportune for connecting and creating.

      September 23 - October 23

      Sunday’s Mars/Jupiter opposition can put you on the go in more ways than one. While this mobilizing and trendsetting transit sparks great potential, there is a propensity to go too far, to say or assume too much, or to value one person’s input over another. Through Tuesday, Venus/Saturn keeps it real/makes you work for it. Wednesday, Mercury/Uranus strikes fresh flint. Seize opportunity.

      October 23 - November 22

      Saturday’s new moon is infused with lucrative potential, this regarding money matters, your social/career ambitions, and matters of heart. Sunday’s Mars/Jupiter opposition gets the ball rolling on your investments, perhaps in some added, double-up, domino, or air-clearing way. Pressure builds through Tuesday morning. Once Venus breaks through the barrier, you’re off to the races. Mercury/Uranus, a strike-flint combo, sets the high bar for Wednesday.

      November 22 - December 21

      Sunday’s Mars/Jupiter opposition puts more into play, significantly so. It can be worth it to revisit the idea, resume the project or discussion, spend more on it, or give it another try. Even if you aim for a repeat, it is never the same twice. Tuesday, Venus/Saturn removes what’s in the way. Building to Wednesday, Mercury/Uranus sparks something worthwhile.

      December 21 - January 20

      Saturday’s new moon sets you onto an especially fertile/lucrative two-week cycle. Sunday, Mars/Jupiter exposes, instigates, or dials up more. Through Tuesday morning, Venus/Saturn can pile on extra pressure, but once you have dealt with it, you’re onto a fast track. Wednesday, the day and the news are good, even exciting. Mercury/Uranus sparks a great idea or opportunity. Synchronicity delivers.

      January 20 - February 18

      The next couple of weeks are infused with great prospects. As of Sunday, Mars/Jupiter gets it/you up and running. A trendsetting transit, it’s the beginning of much more to come. Requiring effort through Tuesday morning, Venus/Saturn keeps you working on it, for it, or through it. Wednesday, a stroke of genius/quick on the ball makes your day.

      February 18 - March 20

      Is it worth it? Go by feel; you’ll know soon enough. Saturday’s new moon and Sunday’s Mars/Jupiter make the moment add up. Put it out there and you are likely to get a good response. Make the investment; the return will be worthwhile. To Tuesday, Venus/Saturn keeps the pressure on. Wednesday, jump on it fast!
