Your horoscope for May 11 to 17, 2017

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      The votes are in, the people have spoken, and now, fresh off the heels of a Scorpio full moon, it’s onto a next page we go.

      All talk, no action? That’s not likely as Mars in Gemini picks up a fresh wind. Also on Thursday, Mercury/Saturn get a good handle on the important stuff. A well-reasoned, practical, and sharpshooting pairing, the duo set an optimum backdrop for thinking, talking, or working through it. It’s an excellent day to make a commitment; sign a contract, file documents, hit the books, do paperwork, get it managed and under better control. This duo also favour activities that require technical aptitude, physical stamina, or a steady hand. A talk with the bank, the boss, an agent, specialist, expert, official, parent, or spiritual adviser can be productive too.

      Friday’s Mars/Jupiter is on the upswing and the increase. News, money, and folks are on the move. Put yourself out there, launch it, sell it, try it again, say it first, or get there first. It’s a thumbs-up day for travel, sports, and getting your fill of pleasure.

      Spend it any way you like, Saturday/Sunday also make the grade. Your quality time and attention is the best gift you can give on Mother’s Day.

      Mercury leaves Aries for Taurus late Monday night. A productive and lucrative influence, Mercury in Taurus can hold it steadier, but don’t expect the pace to slow down much. Saturn/Uranus and Venus/Jupiter are in full swing for the entire week ahead. At all levels, it’s an excellent week for making the most of it.

      March 20 - April 20

      Thursday to Saturday, Mercury/Saturn and Mars/Jupiter set you up for success and reward. Have the conversation, give the presentation, sign the paperwork, grab a plane; or hit the road. Plans, talks, and activities will prove fruitful. Mercury leaves Aries for Taurus on Monday, but it won’t slow you down much! The week ahead keeps you on a great upswing.

      April 20 - May 21

      Take full advantage of the here, the now, and the week ahead while the stars offer up their best. Thursday moves you past a doubt or uncertainty and sets you on your way. Sign the contract, give your word, get it nailed down. Friday, great strides can be made. Mercury into Taurus, beginning Monday, helps you to look and sound your best.

      May 21 - June 21

      The first half of Thursday can start with loss, uncertainty, or blank but it won’t take long for you to get your bearings straight. An answer, clarity, or better pick reveals itself naturally. Once it does, you are off to the races. Friday, travel, talk it up, or try your luck. Saturday onward, the stars set a productive and lucrative backdrop.

      June 21 - July 22

      Thursday/Friday, stream of consciousness, wandering, or conjuring could lead you someplace good. If it isn’t coming naturally, don’t force it. What’s meant to be will fall into place quite beautifully. Saturday through Monday, expectations are readily met. Mercury’s advance into Taurus late Monday will help you to track it down better. Money prospects, social connection, and satisfaction are on the upswing.

      July 22 - August 23

      Fresh, new, and next has your name on it. Thursday/Friday, a conversation or look-see takes you someplace good. The weekend slows you down, but not much. Aim for reward and relaxation; spend quality time with Mom and/or loved ones. Monday begins a profitable, make-the-most-of-it week. Mercury in Taurus keeps you looking and sounding good. Put yourself out there; you’ll get a positive response.

      August 23 - September 23

      The second time can be a charm. Try it or say it again: you’ll get more out of it this time around. Thursday, you could learn or spot something you missed previously. Friday through Sunday sets you up for a bonus or reward. Monday, you’re onto a good trend. A full-to-the-brim week lies ahead. Great gains can be made.

      September 23 - October 23

      Thursday’s free or extra time can be put to very good use. Once you’re on a roll, don’t stop; keep going! Enjoy shopping, sports, or social action. Ending the workweek and launching Mother’s Day weekend, Mars trine Jupiter in Libra pumps up the fun, the love, and the profits. It’s all good news/happy-making for the week ahead, too.

      October 23 - November 22

      You don’t have to say much to get the ball rolling Thursday to Saturday. The power of suggestion is your best strategy. Let them figure it out from there. By the same token, Mars/Jupiter gives you a great knack for reading between the lines and for picking the winners. Tuesday/Wednesday can dish up something fresh or extra. Overall, it’s all good.

      November 22 - December 21

      You’ll hit full swing Thursday to Saturday. Mars/Jupiter makes for a good few days for moneymaking, travel, sports, romance, or shooting the breeze with friends. Mother’s Day Sunday through Monday meets expectations. Mercury into Taurus, starting late Monday, assists you to better use of time and resources. Tuesday/Wednesday, one thing leads to another; invent it as you go along.

      December 21 - January 20

      Take/gift yourself with extra leeway through the weekend. No one will fault you for it. Upbeat Mars/Jupiter finds you in generous giving mode, too. Mother’s Day is what you make of it. Monday, you have it under good control. Mercury in Taurus helps you to look your best, to say it/do it right. Tuesday/Wednesday, dive into something fresh.

      January 20 - February 18

      Once the stars put you in the know, it’s sign it, say it, or game-on time. Launching your weekend, Mars/Jupiter is ideal for enjoying a special event or a getaway, or simply making the most of your free time. Mother’s Day through Monday, quality over quantity does it right. As of Tuesday, plan to hit it full tilt.

      February 18 - March 20

      Thursday/Friday, say what’s on your mind; get it cleared away and/or nailed down. Mars/Jupiter pump up luck and improve the connection with your lover or another. The duo also set a good weekend backdrop for travel, sports, and for enjoying more of the good stuff. Saturday through Monday, stay the course. Tuesday/Wednesday, fresh is best.
