Your horoscope for May 18 to 24, 2017

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Marking the midpoint of a one-year (plus) collaboration of Saturn in Sagittarius trine Uranus in Aries, Thursday delivers the second of three exact alignments (December 24, 2016; May 18 and November 11, 2017). This time-it-right duo will also continue to open doors for each other through a good portion of 2018.

      Saturn in Sagittarius makes the shaping and defining of the future its top priority. Shake-rattle-and-roll Uranus in Aries, a risk taker and an invention genius, is great at kick-starting a new reality. There is no better time than right now to hit the ground running. Try your luck and see what you can rustle up, or watch for the out-of-the-blue to deliver.

      Venus in Aries, the money and relationship planet, has been on the karmic clock since the start of the year too. As of Friday, Venus is finally out of the shadow of her recent retrograde cycle and shines her light for Jupiter in Libra’s appreciation (opposition aspect). Aiming for a win-win, these two gratification seekers plan to make the most of the moment. The transit can set a lucrative, social, or romantic launch to the long weekend.

      When it comes to doing yourself justice, bettering your best, and cashing in, Friday’s Venus/Jupiter can be likened to the test drive that already has the seal of approval, if not from all then at least from Numero Uno.

      Saturday’s sun into Gemini shifts the momentum, attention, conversation, or plan. The Aries moon keeps Victoria Day going strong from early to late. Tuesday/Wednesday calls for the soft touch.

      March 20 - April 20

      If you aren’t there already, you are very close. Thursday’s Saturn/Uranus puts an important event, goal, or next phase well within sight. Friday’s Venus/Jupiter helps you make excellent strides with someone or something. Financial, professional, social, or romantic, a potential now shows excellent prospect. Make full use of your weekend. It’ll shape up quite beautifully, especially through Monday. Tuesday/Wednesday calls for creative thinking.

      April 20 - May 21

      Don’t resist, give in to the process or the reality. You stand to gain more than you know. Progressively, you are developing a better awareness of what tomorrow requires of you and what it can deliver. Thursday’s Saturn/Uranus and Friday’s Venus/Jupiter enhance job and work-it-out prospects. They also set up a fun, productive, or profitable weekend. Tuesday/Wednesday, go, do, talk; your stars are optimized.

      May 21 - June 21

      Thursday/Friday, the flow is particularly good. Indulge, allow, and take full advantage of what you have to work with. Saturday, hang loose on expectations, opinions, or plans and allow the day to direct the show. One way or another, Victoria Day keeps you going from start to finish. Tuesday is ideal for a date night, a talk, or for going easy on it.

      June 21 - July 22

      If it’s not doing the trick, why keep going? This is not a time to stick with same old, same old. Entertain or embrace something new and the stars will roll it out for you. Thursday’s Saturn/Uranus is especially lucrative for a fresh launch or further exploration. Friday, the appearance or presentation counts. Spend to make yourself or it look good. Monday to Wednesday, stay creative.

      July 22 - August 23

      It’s all good news. Your stars are in excellent shape over the next couple of days. Saturn/Uranus and Venus/Jupiter are great confidence-building transits. They are ideal for travel, socializing, and loading up on pleasure wherever you aim. Gemini month, starting Saturday, prompts a fresh idea, plan, or infusion. Victoria Day keeps you/it going great guns.

      August 23 - September 23

      A major investment of time, money, or heart is required from you now, but you know how much there is to gain. Expectations for it or them run especially high. Stay the course: your confidence is well placed, especially when you aim for fresh and new. Saturday’s a switch-track day. Sunday through Wednesday, stoke the fire.

      September 23 - October 23

      Ready for something new? It’s ready for you, too. The end of the workweek puts you, it, or them into full swing. Friday’s Venus/Jupiter brings you favoured attention. Take your best shot. Saturday, a choice, decision, or best pick stands out. Spontaneity puts you in the know or prompts a breakthrough. Monday, one thing gets you going onto the next.

      October 23 - November 22

      Borrow an idea and make it your own. Take a fresh stab at it; give it another try or look-see. Friday’s Venus/Jupiter can springboard you someplace good. Spend or splurge to make yourself look or feel better (within reason, of course). Saturday through Monday can get you going on something new. Tuesday/Wednesday, go by feel; speak your heart/mind.

      November 21 - December 21

      Thursday’s Saturn/Uranus keeps life moving along just fine. The duo will continue to benefit you for the rest of the year, especially regarding career, creativity, and lifestyle upgrades. Friday, do it/get your way. When you are happy, everyone else is too. Saturday, you could get pulled into it unexpectedly. Monday, you’re hot stuff. Tuesday/Wednesday, go by feel; take your time.

      December 21 - January 20

      Try on a new look or something more/bigger. Thursday’s Saturn/Uranus encourages you to think outside of the box, to embrace a whole new way of seeing, being, and doing. Don’t view your present initiative, project, or prospect as a risk; see it as opportunity in the making. Friday’s Venus/Jupiter sets you and the weekend into full swing.

      January 20 - February 18

      A piece of news, a special event, new trend, or fresh idea keeps you on a great perk-me-up. Saturn/Uranus and Venus/Jupiter make for an excellent flow and go. Your weekend and your future are shaping up quite nicely. Drift, dream, immerse, cozy up Friday night. Make the most of it Monday. Tuesday/Wednesday, feel it out.

      February 18 - March 20

      A change of scenery or momentum does you justice. Thursday through Saturday, jump in with both feet. Give it your all; be here now. The reward can far exceed your investment or expectation. Venus/Jupiter boosts pleasure and romance prospects. The duo can see you make more money—or spend more, too. Monday fast-tracks you.
