Aries 

Aries Horoscope
Aries

There can be a building desire to improve these days, dear Aries, although there can be a hurdle today that likely revolves around the past or your own guilty feelings about enjoying yourself and moving forward in your love life. Do what you can to build your faith in your creativity and make peace with the past. This will free you up to take better advantage of opportunities this week, as you are looking especially good and might even be the object of desire. Charm comes naturally. Good energy is with you for expanding your personal horizons through creative endeavors. Love can be magical and your powers of attraction are strong. It’s a good time for friendships and dating, personal attraction, and your social life in general. There may be good news on a financial level for some of you, and a sense of abundance for others.

Taurus


Taurus

There can be some frustrations with friends and family if they are not mixing well in some way, dear Taurus, or you could be feeling conflicted about plans that haven’t come together well. Adjustments and sacrifices are in order, but dealing with these now can help to free you up for real opportunities revolving around your home, family, and personal life later today and tomorrow. Nice opportunities can arise to bond with those closest to you. This can also be a time for buying a special item for the home, or when money comes through. Taking a trip down memory lane can be satisfying now. There is mostly good humor today, although you can be a little prone to impracticality and exaggeration. This is a good time to expand contact, strengthen ties, and find peace with the past. Your powers of attraction skyrocket.

Gemini


Gemini

If you’ve been taking on too many new interests, you’ll feel the need to tone things down, dear Gemini. There can be information overload, or new information comes up that challenges a previous belief or your own optimistic outlook. Find ways to straighten things out now, and to alleviate stress, as a very pleasant aspect occurring later today and into tomorrow can bring opportunities. Let go of attitudes and projects that no longer serve you or that are less important so that you can make room for the new. Watch for opportunities in the form of new interests, connections, and learning. For some, there could be a creative project, speaking engagement, a publishing of your work, or even a romantic connection made. Success tends to come through word of mouth, others, or clever ideas. People are appreciating your ideas and the power of your words is strong. Your good cheer and optimism can help strengthen close relationships.

Cancer


Cancer

Something happening today, or simply a feeling, can lead you to question a belief, goal, project, or even a person, dear Cancer. If you don’t have the answers right now, have faith that you may not need them at the moment. Consider carefully ways that guilt may be undermining you or keeping you from enjoying yourself. There is a Venus-Jupiter alignment today and tomorrow that can bring in nice prospects or opportunities to feel more comfortable and secure. Money is not just about security for you these days, however – it’s also about freedom. You may be especially motivated to make more, and this attitude can bring greater wealth into your life. This can be a good time for starting or advancing projects that have long-term appeal and profitability. Some of you could uncover a resource or information that benefits you greatly. There could be a significant gift or bonus or you may simply be feeling generous, with others and yourself! Opportunities to make more money could emerge for some of you. Think big and vow to take care of the details later, as the details may not yet be clear – do some overview thinking.

Leo


Leo

Jupiter in your sign tends to put you in the spotlight in a very pleasant way these days, dear Leo, but when it forms difficult aspects, there can be some downsides. Today, Jupiter is in awkward angle to Chiron, and you could suddenly feel that you have less answers than you did before. It’s a brief time of doubting or questioning where you’re headed, your current path, or your alliances, and for some, a moral dilemma can be part of the picture. Simplifying, organizing, and eliminating excess can be helpful if you’re feeling uncertain. Look for ways to make adjustments so that you can fully enjoy Jupiter’s alignment with Venus, which can fill you with a nice sense of abundance, perhaps as if puzzle pieces are coming together. Attracting support from others, if you need it, can be easier, and romantic attention is quite likely. You would do well to put a past grudge behind you, as this is a good time for it. You tend to gravitate towards healthy people and situations.

Virgo

Virgo Symbol/Glyph
Virgo

A close relationship might be a little strained today, dear Virgo, if topics are being dredged up from the past, or a secret emerges in a disruptive manner. Insecurities can cloud judgment right now. However, find ways to move out of your comfort zone and rise above insecurities and fears, as there can be distinct opportunities to free yourself from a burdensome attachment. Some of you can benefit from synchronicity – something surfaces now, such as an unusual coincidence, that brings some joy into your life. A private matter can also stimulate happy and warm feelings. Helping others, performing a generous act or service, and possibly behind the scenes or anonymously, can be satisfying. Some of you could revive an old relationship or find out about a secret attraction. Love may be complicated but rich. There can be the discovery of an untapped resource now.

Libra

Libra Glyph-Symbol
Libra

You might come to a realization or concern that certain details of a project or goal are not particularly practical and realistic, dear Libra. If you’ve been taking on too much recently, you’ll feel that excess now and wonder how you can manage everything. However, it’s very important to make the adjustments you need to make and avoid dwelling on the negative now, as there is also strong energy for opportunities. You are connecting with spirited, interesting people, and while your eagerness to share and enjoy others can sometimes have you going overboard, approaching these things with a little more moderation can be wonderful and a stress reducer. Positive attention can come through enthusiastically helping others. For some of you, a friend can come to your aid. Some of you might enjoy new friendships or meet a love interest through a group, friend, or social networking. Don’t hide yourself away at this time, but also be wary of overdoing your pursuit of pleasure or for taking on too many commitments.

Scorpio

Scorpio Symbol Glyph
Scorpio

A recurring aspect between Jupiter in your reputation /career sector and Chiron in your sector of romance / creativity comes exact today, dear Scorpio, and this is the final one in a set. For some of you insecurities can emerge when it comes to creative endeavors that stop you in your tracks and perhaps have you questioning long-term goals. You could experience a moral dilemma with your work or reputation. Instead of allowing insecurities to drive your actions, aim to learn more about them in order to make important attitude changes, as tonight and tomorrow, Jupiter aligns with Venus helping to open up doors on professional or public levels. This can be, in fact, a strong time for long-term vision, career, and reputation matters, especially if you put yourself out in the world with confidence. You can be in the position to improve your career or financial state now, and for some, your reputation gets a nice boost. People are enjoying and appreciating what you do. You can feel particularly good about your future, where you’re heading, and your ability to manage others. There can be romantic or friendly connections now, and especially through public exposure or business affairs.

Sagittarius 

Sagittarius Glyph Symbol
Sagittarius

You might experience some guilty feelings if you haven’t paid enough attention to important people in your life, dear Sagittarius. There could be a moral dilemma of sorts. However, communication coming out of any dilemmas experienced today can take you to a much healthier place. Talk things out or through, and you will feel your motivation building. You are feeling in big terms now, after a possibly bumpy morning. There are romantic possibilities these days, and particularly with people of a different background than yours, or who are offering you an entirely different perspective on life. Intelligence attracts! You are more adventurous with your feelings and bolder with your affections. Sharing your ideas with others might even lead to bigger opportunities. The future looks bright, and some of you could be making educational or travel plans.

Capricorn

Capricorn Symbol/Glyph
Capricorn

A recurring aspect between Jupiter and Chiron comes exact again today, dear Capricorn, and this can have you questioning your current path, worrying about having paid too much attention to your personal life at the expense of other important activities, or dealing with an insecure partner. Avoid subconsciously expecting too much from others, or putting all of your eggs into one basket. Rise above insecurities in order to enjoy another important energy available today that can lead to the strengthening of a relationship or connection with someone. There could be word of money or support coming through, a windfall of sorts, or an open-hearted conversation that makes you feel quite wonderful. Your people instincts are especially strong, and you may find joy through an intimate moment or a moment of profound self-honesty. This is an excellent time for talking about your needs, as others are responsive and some of the usual barriers and boundaries dissolve.

Aquarius


Aquarius

While there can be somewhat demotivating energy surrounding partnerships, values, resources, and finances right now, Aquarius, getting over this hump can be very much worth your while today, as there can be distinct opportunities to win others over or to enhance a relationship. If someone feels they’re giving more than they are receiving, or if there are noticeable discrepancies in values and attitudes about money, then put the energy forth to make the necessary adjustments. This can be a good time for attracting a pleasant or helpful person into your life. There can be mutual benefit through others today, and you might reach a new level of understanding with someone special. You can experience joy in feeling part of a partnership now, if applicable, or if you’re not paired up with anyone, simply being around and being supportive of someone special. You are expressing real confidence and you have a strong desire to move forward – to forgive and forget.

Pisces


Pisces

While there can be some tendency to second-guess your recent decisions or to lose focus, it’s very important to take extra time to realign yourself with what you are looking for, as there is excellent energy with you for opportunities to improve or enjoy your daily life and bodily concerns (health matters, work, and so forth). Look out for impractical thinking and too-high expectations, but do watch for interesting possibilities. Good humor can be healing today. You may be feeling happy about getting things done or being of service. Be open about making connections and socializing in places you never thought to do so, and find new ways to explore and enjoy the work you perform or the services you render on a daily basis.

Aries 

Aries Horoscope
Aries

While you’re emotionally prepared for non-routine experiences today, dear Aries, this is in fact a wonderful time to nurture and develop your pet projects or work today. Conditions as well as people in your life seem to support your efforts, or at least allow you the pleasure of going about doing what you want to do without guilt or distraction. You could be motivated to work harder because of clear goals or to better take care of you and yours. There is a real protector in you these days.

Taurus


Taurus

You may be learning new things about your love life today, dear Taurus, and you are in better touch with your deeper feelings. There is a feeling that love can overcome anything. This is also a good time for career developments or moves.

Today and tomorrow, make sure you are around people you love and showing your care. These are strong days for building close relationships.

Gemini

Open the lines of communication, as opportunities to advance your current interests and to welcome new people and experiences abound now.

Virgo

Virgo Symbol/Glyph
Virgo

You have a very genuine desire to help and support others, dear Virgo, and this trait is strongly emphasized today. You can go to great lengths to find the information you need to help someone you care about, and can easily get a bit carried away with research or delving a little more deeply into whatever topic or project you’re currently interested in. There can be a stronger need for a bit of solitude or for familiar faces and activities today, as you’d prefer some time to recoup emotionally. However, your mind is very busy, and you should take advantage of this extra focus.

Your powers of attraction and personal magnetism are special today, dear Libra, and your own feelings tend to match the intensity you’re projecting. This is a good day for expressing yourself through creative mediums. You are also coming across as reliable and valuable, so that relationships of all kinds can benefit.

Scorpio

Scorpio Symbol Glyph

Sagittarius 

Sagittarius Glyph Symbol
Sagittarius

This can be a wonderful day for finding new ways to communicate, dear Sagittarius, as well as to show how much you care about someone through your words or simply the act of reaching out and making a connection. You may be in the position of go-between now. The Moon has moved into your sign, and emotions are heightened. There can be an urgency felt now when it comes to fulfilling your emotional needs, but taming this a little can go a long way towards greater happiness today. Be moderate, but listen closely to the feelings that surface now.

Capricorn

Capricorn Symbol/Glyph
Capricorn

There is a strong focus on making life more secure and fulfilling today, dar Capricorn. A happy and safe environment at home can be a prime motivator now, and you seem to have the support of others and circumstances to find ways to improve your well-being. You can also be experiencing deeper desires and a need for a stronger connection with someone special. The Moon has moved into your privacy zone, and attention is drawn to your inner world as well today. You may need more time alone to think, decide, and process recent events and feelings.

Aquarius


Aquarius

This is a strong day for working on pet projects or studies, dear Aquarius, as you can be super motivated to put time and effort into your work and interests. You have a special way with words today, and you may be recognized for your insight, wit, intelligence, and concern or care. Your ability to get to the point is strong, and your ability to see what others may need is powerful as well.

Today and tomorrow are particularly strong for letting go so that you can more fully appreciate the good in your life.

A love connection that has the potential to turn into something substantial might happen for you — in an instant! On Monday, you may meet someone in an unexpected situation.

You’ll wear your heart on your sleeve thanks to a Full Moon in your sign on Wednesday. If there are any feelings you’ve been keeping to yourself that you know are only hurting your relationship, this is the time to “come clean”.

He or she might have been waiting for this moment all along.

A Little About May Birth Symbols

    • FROM:  http://www.whattoexpect.com/pregnancy/photo-gallery/birth-signs-symbols#06

      May Babies

      “Spring’s last-born darling, clear-eyed, sweet, Pauses a moment, with white twinkling feet, and golden locks in breezy play, Half teasing and half tender, to repeat Her song of ‘May.'” —Susan Coolidge

      Zodiac: Taurus until May 20 and Gemini from May 21

      Gemstone: Emerald
      Symbolizing love and success, the deep green stone is thought to bring foresight, good fortune and youth to the wearer. It’s also a symbol of rebirth and new beginnings — an appropriate symbol of spring.

      Flower: Lily of the Valley
      The lily of the valley represents sweetness and humility, purity of heart and honor.

      Tree: Poplar, Chestnut, Ash

      FROM: http://www.almanac.com/content/birth-month-flowers-and-their-meanings#

      May’s birth flower is the lily of the valley, which signifies sweetness, humility, and a return to happiness. If you want to show your loved one that your life is complete with them, give them a few lilies of the valley. The other May flower is the hawthorn plant, which represents hope and supreme happiness. Hawthorne signifies that you want only the best for the recipient.

      FROM: http://birthstonesbymonths.net/

      May Birthstone – Emerald

      May Birthstone Emerald

      The gemstone representing May, is the Emerald. As spring in the northern hemisphere occurs in May, the emerald stands for a time of rebirth and growth. The French refer to the emerald’s inclusions and fractures as “jardin’s”, translated as garden, resembling the color of spring foliage.

      For each stone of the Gregorian calendar, each month of the year brings in a new cycle. Each cycle represents a new season, has a renewed energy, and a new meaning. The month of May is one of abundance and life in it’s youthful beauty. Following the rainy month of April, the month of May is one that symbolizes fresh, new, green life. The emerald as a precious stone for the month of May. Beautiful, fertile valleys blessed with rain are symbolic of the Emerald in that both offer energy both in a spiritual and physical sense giving sustenance for one who might own an Emerald and for those living within the valleys.

      The emerald has been a symbol since the Egyptians engraved the stone with pictures of foliage. It would then be gifted to their deceased loved ones for their burials to represent eternal youth. It is the Egyptians who mined emeralds in the desert to the east over two-thousand years before the birth of Cleopatra. During her reign, this was her favorite stone, and even claimed one of the emerald mines as her own. She would bestow an emerald to a visiting dignitary on their departure. When the Spanish Conquistadors arrived in South America, they noticed that the natives were wearing some of the largest emeralds they had ever seen. They attempted to hide the mines from the Conquistadors, but were unsuccessful. Today, that area is known as Columbia, where some of the most prize emeralds are unearthed. There are sources of emeralds that have been found in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Nigeria, Brazil, Zimbabwe, and Russia.

      The Romans regarded the emerald representative to the goddess of love, Venus. They wore the gem to honor Aphrodite, their adopted goddess of love for fertility, beauty and love. Their emperor, Nero had eyeglasses that were made of emerald so that he might watch the gladiators battle and maintain his eyes’ health, and to ease the strain upon his eyes.

      These crystals grow slowly within the confines of metamorphic rock, making them rare and thus, very valuable and expensive, sometimes more so than diamonds. It represents wisdom, patience and growth. It often given as an anniversary gift, as these characteristics in a relationship are important. It also represents friendship, faithfulness and loyalty, and they have been utilized for the effective treatment of health issues related to fertility, eyes, spine and for headaches. The Emerald can prevent seizures, reduce fevers and stop bleeding.

      Some other interesting facts about the May Birthstone Emerald:

      -Mostly all Emeralds have been treated with an epoxy resin or oil to fill in surface cracks making them less visible

      -Some of the oils used to treat Emeralds are clear, however, some are tinted green in order to make them appear more vivid

      -Mummies were buried with emeralds

      -It is often times worn by travelers for luck and has legends of calming stormy seas

      Other symbols of May

      May Birth Flower:

      Lily of the Valley and the Hawthorn. Hawthorns flower in May and symbolizes the return of spring and summer. Maypoles were constructed of hawthorn.

      May Birth Tree:

      Ash, Popular, and Chestnut

Your Daily Planet Tracker: Sun in Taurus, Now until May 21, 2015

 

 

Planet Tracker

Sun in Taurus

Now until May 21, 2015

 

Signs are Seasons

Taurus occupies the middle of the spring season in the Northern Hemisphere. The signs in the middle of seasons are called fixed signs (Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius are the others). They tend to resist change. Their purpose is not to stop movement, but to ensure a consistency of values.

Earthy Taurus is about appreciating the natural forces of this planet, its people and plants. It is, in some ways, the sign of the Garden of Eden; it is about enjoying the pleasures of this world. The essence of Taurus, then, is not doing, but simply being. Just stop a moment to feel your body, to smell the air, to sense the light on your face. Physical sensation in its most positive forms are the essence of Taurus.

Comfort or Indulgence

This appreciation for physical pleasure is a reminder that we are each worthy, even without expending effort. At its best, this is the essence of self-acceptance. “I am worthy because I exist,” may well be the Taurus motto. The strength of this perspective is that it reduces our anxiety to do, to become someone or make something happen in order to be worthy.

Real self-acceptance is, of course, very healthy. It allows a person to enjoy herself and appreciate her gifts. But, there is also a kind of false self-acceptance that can be associated with Taurus. This is self-indulgent and lazy. It’s not about confidence, it’s really about fear. The challenge is to transform worth into action. Potential alone will not change the world or improve your life. Yes, meditative moments, walks on the beach and massages do remind us of the sweetness of life and can be delicious. But, growth and change also require action.

When self-acceptance is rooted in real appreciation, rather than resignation or denial, it is inherently dynamic. The in-breath is always followed by an out-breath. The healthy expression of Taurus then becomes highly productive.

The Money Sign?

Taurus, and its key planet Venus, are often associated with money. This, however, can be misleading. Sure, Taurus likes stuff, particularly high quality expensive stuff. It can be possessive, too. But one of the secrets of money is that it is about exchange, that it has no real value by itself.

While Taurus often knows a good thing when he sees it, the idea of exchange is not always easy for this sign to grasp. It needs to learn to give if it’s going to get. The risks of sharing can complicate the bull’s simple life, but Taurus needs to know about this to be materially successful.

The Non-Material Taurus

Although Taurus is essentially about the physical world, there is another path that some born in this sign have taken. In the pursuit of peace, awareness and the essence of comfort, many bulls are attracted to spirituality.

Foremost among these was the Buddha. Prince Gautama was a Taurus born into a world of luxury and leisure. But his desire for real value and meaning led him down a very different path. The truth, he found, was not in the world bound by flesh and ego, but in the spirit.

Perhaps the reason is that, at its highest levels, Taurus is about enduring values. The flesh will not endure, but spirit is eternal. This is a reminder for all of us, Taurus or not, to remember the non-material reality that lies behind all that we can physically touch and feel.

Famous Bulls

The movies have been good to Taurus. Among this sign’s stars are Jack Nicholson, Al Pacino, Shirley MacLaine, Uma Thurman and Harvey Keitel. We tend to think of Taurus as strong or muscular, but there are even slim Taurus stars like Audrie Hepburn, Fred Astaire and Michelle Pfeiffer.

Taurus, associated with the throat, is a sign for singers like Barbra Streisand, Cher, Janet Jackson, Enya, Enrique Iglesias, Willie Nelson, Stevie Wonder, James Brown and Billy Joel. Comic bulls include Jerry Seinfeld, George Carlin and Jay Leno. Directing ones are George Lucas and Orson Welles, while Tony Gwynn, Dennis Rodman, Rubin “Hurricane” Carter and Andre Agassi are sporty bulls.

This sign even includes the fathers of communism (Karl Marx) and psychotherapy (Sigmund Freud), as well as modern political figures Tony Blair and Madeleine Albright.

Daily Planet Tracker: Mars in Taurus, Now to May 11, 2015

Planet Tracker

Mars in Taurus

Now to May 11, 2015

 

Astrological tradition says that Mars the Warrior is not comfortable in bucolic Taurus. The reasoning is simply that this planet of “go” isn’t at its best in the sign of “go slow, go very slow.” Earthy Taurus is a fixed sign. It occupies the middle of the spring (in the Northern Hemisphere) and symbolizes the sweetness of burgeoning plant life. Taurus doesn’t want to go anywhere. It’s fine where it is.

The challenge is that Mars doesn’t like to stand still. It lives for action, not the couch potato life of Taurus. It may, therefore, be a bit more difficult to get new projects off the ground. This is a period in which a solid foundation and a plentiful supply of fuel are required to get your rocket off the launch pad.

Mars is also the planet of anger. The Bull is basically a very calm beast. It can take considerable poking and prodding before its ire is raised, but when it is, look out! Personally, you may find this to be a time when you’d prefer to avoid confrontation. It’s easier to duck a fight now than meet your opponent face to face. Yet, resentment doesn’t disappear when the cause is not confronted. It just goes underground where it is much more dangerous than an open display of anger. But Mars in Taurus also needs to know when to end the battle, rather than prolonging it endlessly.

A key to success now is to be solidly rooted before reaching out in a new direction. When Mars in Taurus has its feet on the ground, there is no limit as to how far it can go. It is motivated not by hunger, fear or desire. It is motivated by the joy of building, creating and the intrinsic joy of the work itself. Taking pleasure in your job not only makes life nicer, but can make you much more productive.

Taurus, in the end, is about personal values. Actions need to align with individual needs if they’re going to amount to anything. It takes a great deal to move Mars when in this sign, but there can be incredible strength and endurance when the right path has been opened. Look at what you’ve begun recently with Mars in Aries (February 11 – March 22). This fiery sword has cut sharply, making room for the Mars in Taurus steamroller to come through. The road is wide, enjoy the ride.

A good many dancers were born with Mars in Taurus, perhaps a reflection of the principle of pleasure (Taurus) through movement (Mars). Among them are Paula Abdul, Maurice Bejart, Merce Cunningham, Shirley MacLaine, Rudolph Nureyev and Ginger Rogers.

Mars in Taurus poets include Robert Bly, Robert Frost, Omar Khayam, Henry David Thoreau and Paul Verlaine. Some not so sweet guys in this category are Nazis Martin Bormann, Adolph Eichman and Adolph Hitler, as well as Fidel Castro and Ruhollah Khomeini.

Taurus is associated with the throat, so it’s not surprising to find singers Belinda Carlisle, Celine Dion, Wynona Judd, Chaka Khan, Carole King, Ann Murray, Leontyne Price, Pat Boone, Glen Campbell, Mick Jagger, Billy Joel, Dean Martin and Graham Nash with Mars in this sign. Mars in Taurus painters are Salvadore Dali, James McNeill Whistler, Andy Warhol, Paul Klee and Edgar Degas.

Actors with Mars in Taurus are Tom Cruise, Jamie Lee Curtis, Bette Davis, Robert DeNiro, Sidney Poitier, Jack Lemmon and Charlie Chaplin. There is also that giant of jazz John Coltrane and the great spiritual teacher Rudolph Steiner.
