Your horoscope for May 9 to 15, 2019

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Mother’s Day is bookended by the sun’s trine to Saturn on Saturday and to Pluto on Monday. Quality time spent is its own reward. Even if the day is a duty call, you are likely to feel that showing up for it is worth your while.

      Aim to get things cleaned up and cleared out on Monday. Sun/Pluto supplies good fuel to the creative process, the workability factor, and the potential benefit. This resources-rich, motivational transit supplies something substantial to work with, something worth the investment. It can trigger a more encompassing perspective or added appreciation for what it will take to get to the next level. Overall, the move-along should feel like a natural evolution. Sun/Pluto sets up a good-timing backdrop for Monday/Tuesday.

      At peak on Tuesday, Venus and Mars are good travelling companions for most of the week ahead. Desires and needs are in active development as Venus exits Aries for Taurus and Mars exits Gemini for Cancer on Wednesday.

      Aim to make it look good/look better; sexy up. Venus in Taurus favours enhancements of all kinds. The tuning fork and “art of inner hearing” archetype also aims to put you back in touch with your heart’s desire and what is truly of merit.

      Mars in Cancer can increase emotional sensitivity, need, and reactiveness. Home, real estate, family, the past, safety, and security (personal, domestic, national) gain added attention. Feeling in conflict with yourself? Most importantly, Mars amps up matters to do with self-preservation and self-care. Yes, make personal needs your number one priority.

      March 20 - April 20

      Venus in Aries continues in high gear Thursday/Friday. If you have felt the harsh or caustic side of this transit, you’ll be happy to know that as of Saturday, relationships, money matters, and potential reward are on the upswing. You should find you are able to make better use of the time you spend. Mother’s Day weekend, satisfaction comes easily and readily.

      April 20 - May 21

      September 23 - October 23

      Venus in Aries continues to stay fired up through Friday. Folks can be sharp-edged. You can be too, especially when you feel your needs are not being met or considered.
