Your horoscope for May 16 to 23, 2019

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      We won’t have to wait until Saturday for the full moon to spike the punch. The transiting Scorpio moon hits the trigger on Thursday with Mars (trine), Venus, and Uranus (both by opposition).

      What’s set in place on Thursday gains traction on Friday as Mercury/Saturn and Mercury/Pluto (trines) build momentum. Thursday to Saturday, Venus/Uranus adds the excitement, excitability, risk, or surprise factor. Single and looking? You just might find. At peak on full moon Saturday, Venus/Uranus can produce an abrupt end, a springboard, or pay-dirt moment. On a cautionary note, don’t let yourself get talked into anything that could compromise your health or wealth, i.e., street drugs, sexual encounters with strangers, or risky financial ventures.

      A blue moon usually refers to the second full moon in a calendar month. Saturday’s full moon in Scorpio (2:11 p.m. PDT) gains the title from being the third of four full moons in a single season. On rare occasion the face of the moon will take on a bluish tint. This is due to dust particles in the air (such as those caused by a significant volcanic eruption).

      Both the sun and Mercury enter Gemini on back-to-work Tuesday. What’s next on the list? Set it in motion. It is an optimum day to start a conversation, get on the same page, connect the dots, or deliver the message. Sun/Mercury is a good idea, trendsetting, news-generating, and mobilizing transit. Wednesday sets up good timing too. Send, sign, or sell it; talk it up or over; take the test; get down to business. While Mars in Cancer has something raw/concerning to tend through next Friday, overall, Tuesday and Wednesday are the best of the week to get on top of it and for seeing results.

      March 20 - April 20

      Whether it is a piece of news, an expense, or something more, Saturday’s full moon holds an element of the unexpected. A sudden insight could completely revise your perspective. A purchase, surprise discovery, or spontaneous get-together could make your day. Emotions are on ready trigger. Something said or read can spark or provoke you. Tuesday/Wednesday, take another stab at it or start fresh.

      April 20 - May 21

      Saturday’s full moon may come and go, but what it generates for you could be lasting. Whether it changes your mind, your heart, or your reality, something or someone can have a huge impact on what happens next. The stage is set for a major turnaround regarding how you feel, what you want, what it’s worth, or what you are willing to pay for.

      May 21 - June 21

      A break from the routine is ideally timed for the long weekend. The full moon isn’t likely to be restful, but it might be memorable. Someone could show up out of the blue or come at you out of nowhere. To the plus, a brainstorm, sudden instinct, bargain find, or spontaneous choice can make the weekend great. Tuesday puts you/it on the move.

      June 21 - July 22

      Mars is newly at it in Cancer. Extending through July 1, you should feel this transit as a boost of energy and incentive, especially directed toward better security, safety, and self-care (emotional, physical, material). Beyond a good weekend to cut yourself loose, Saturday’s full moon could dish up something sudden, unexpected, spontaneous, fresh, surprising, enlightening, provoking, or costly. Tuesday/Wednesday, get it going.

      July 22 - August 23

      Things might not go according to plan, intention, or expectation on full-moon Saturday. Stay open to revision or at the ready for something last-minute to overtake you. Someone could need you or surprise you. You could score a good bargain or make a breakthrough. Go on impulse, instinct, or a first impression. Tuesday’s fresh page or fresh talk is well-timed.

      August 23 - September 23

      Accompanying Saturday’s full moon, Venus/Uranus can produce a breath-of-fresh-air feel or a wake-up call. Tuesday/Wednesday, hit it fresh; make it official. It is an ideal time to apply for a new job, talk to the bank, sign the paperwork, start a new project, or shift your inner dialogue. Mars works along a breakthrough track through the middle of June.

      September 23 - October 23

      Watch for Saturday’s full moon to pick up steam as early as Thursday. You’ll feel it as heightened emotional intensity and a full-to-the-brim few days. To Saturday, Mercury keeps motivation, communications, and activities clipping along. Rather than kick back on Saturday, Venus/Uranus has you in full swing right from the start, perhaps unexpectedly. Tuesday/Wednesday, talks and meetings are productive.

      October 23 - November 22

      Feeling it/fuelling it, the moon enters Scorpio on Thursday and hits full phase on Saturday. Thursday/Friday, Mercury in good shape with Saturn and Pluto helps you to get a better handle on it, say it, do it, and time it right. Thursday and Saturday, Venus/Uranus adds the extra flint or fuel. A reaction, impulse, or surprise can get the better of you.

      November 22 - December 21

      You may want to keep a low profile as the workweek finishes out, but Venus/Uranus and Saturday’s full moon have other plans. Expect to hit a refresh button or to have a sudden impulse or inspiration gain a strong wind. Saturday night through Monday, the Sagittarius moon keeps you going strong. Tuesday, sun/Mercury sets you onto a next page, project, or conversation.

      December 21 - January 20

      Now through the long weekend, something social, spontaneous, and/or outside of the usual hits it right. You are likely to spend more than you plan, but the pleasure, reward, or added benefit makes it worthwhile. Pick up the phone and/or get fresh on it Tuesday/Wednesday while Sun/Mercury and the Capricorn moon set you up with good timing.

      January 20 - February 18

      Kicking it up an extra notch as of Thursday, Uranus keeps it edgy, stimulating, and/or energized through Saturday’s full moon. A good idea or spontaneous impulse is well worth acting on. Home, family, and visits keep you busy this weekend. Get better informed, get better connected; Tuesday/Wednesday is also optimal for talks, meetings, interviews, plans.

      February 18 - March 20

      Thursday through Saturday, things can rev up or fall into place. Building steam over a couple of days, Saturday’s full moon could prompt a significant change of heart or mind or a big shift regarding prospects. Also, watch for news or for something unplanned or expected to overtake you. Next Tuesday starts the workweek on an upswing.
