There are times when we see things clearly and we know what we want to do. This week is not one of them. Instead, we have situations that are confusing. We might hesitate or be indecisive. That’s okay. If you’re not sure what to do – do nothing. Hold your ground. Naturally, there are some bright spots, because there always are, aren’t there? Life is like that. Nevertheless, the Lunar eclipse on Friday, May 5 will be volatile for many. Avoid nasty types. Avoid potential violence or dangerous neighbourhoods. Tread carefully if you’re celebrating Cinco de Mayo. Be patient. Be loving. Be kind. Use your common sense. And remember: the email of the species is more deadly than the mail.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
The key to handling this week is not to jump in to anything without looking. Because you are a fast-acting, impulsive person, this will require a little self-discipline on your part. Relations with daily contacts – siblings, relatives and neighbours might be confusing. Assume nothing. Meanwhile, domestic matters and family conversations could get aggressive. On top of that, financial situations are full of surprises (this includes your earnings as well as taxes, debt and shared property). Nevertheless, lucky, moneybags Jupiter is in your sign! Don’t sweat the small stuff. You have divine protection.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
You have to tread carefully because at some point this week, the Moon will be opposite your sign, and especially, it will be opposite Uranus in your sign, which could trigger surprises you didn’t expect. Meanwhile, double check financial matters because there might be confusion about money or something that you own. Be very clear, especially when dealing with your possessions. Major – your car. Minor – your dry-cleaning. Deception is possible. (Yikes!) Arguments with daily contacts might also arise. Remember that patience is the antidote to anger. Stay chill. Then you’re Teflon.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
In many ways, you will probably fly through this week relatively unscathed because it just so happens that three planets in your sign are actually “hiding” in your chart, which means you’re very happy to play things low-key and stay behind the scenes. This is probably a good move. When the going gets tough – the tough stay home with Doritos. With Venus in your sign, your impulse will be to be charming and diplomatic. Nevertheless, relations with others, especially authority figures will be confused. You might misread the signs. Others might be mistaken and actually accuse you of something. Disputes about money or possessions might also arise. (Keeps getting better, doesn’t it?) But these are minor things you can handle. The key is to maintain your cool. Don’t feed the problem.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
You are a sensitive sign. Your feelings are easily hurt. (Yes, they are.) This week, you might feel caught in the crossfire between friends, groups, kids, romantic partners, family members – you name it. The thing to know is that fiery Mars is in your sign, which means you are not going to go gentle into that good night. So this is what you have to ask yourself. If you use this pent-up, aggressive energy to defend yourself or to attack someone else – will this make things better for you? Probably, the best way for things to be better for you is for you to sidestep any nastiness entirely. Buy an ice cream cone. That is good way to absorb your mind and your mouth for at least 11 minutes.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
This week there will be upsides and downsides. You have the good fortune of having great lighting because the Sun is at the top of your chart, and this makes you look fabulous in the eyes of others even if you don’t do anything special. So you have this advantage. Ideally, one does not want to blow it, right? Meanwhile, you might find yourself at odds with a parent or a family member. This week, a “hidden enemy” or someone behind the scenes might not have your best interests at heart. A friend or a member of a group might confuse you to the point that you don’t know what they expect, or even if they’re still your friend? Nevertheless, travel opportunities are at hand. And no matter what – you know how to accessorize.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Let’s face it, the only thing that should be in hot water is a tea bag. Therefore, be smart and steer clear of controversial subjects because this is where things could go off the rails for you this week. Don’t take the bait. You don’t have to win. You don’t have to convince others to agree with you. Also be aware that smooth-talking bosses (or authority figures) might confuse you or even fool of you. “Fool” me? What does that mean? Generally, it means they’re lying. Issues with a friend or a member of a group might be dicey. One thing is certain, if you can travel or get outta Dodge – you will, because you want a change of scenery. In particular, you will love to learn something new.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Be careful about financial agreements and banking matters because surprises and disputes might arise. Therefore, stay on top of things. Do your homework. Know what’s going on because if you snooze — you lose. Meanwhile, you might find yourself feeling pressured by a parent or a pushy boss. (Possibly, you are the one who is being pushy?) Either way, be aware that on Tuesday and Wednesday, the Moon is in your sign, which means you will most likely get your way, because you have a slight advantage over all the other signs. However, you will also most likely be a tad emotional on those days as well. Forewarned is forearmed.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Your challenge this week is to keep things sweet and reasonable with partners, spouses and close friends. Especially on Thursday and Friday. When it rains, we use umbrellas. When it’s cold, we have winter coats. It’s always possible to find a way to deal with a challenge; and you are a strong-willed, self-disciplined sign who can meet almost any challenge – and you know it. Double check financial dealings, especially with shared property, banks and insurance issues. If you think something fishy is going on – it is. Steer clear of controversial subjects, especially politics and religion. Work with what you’ve got but don’t push the river. Stay calm and be realistic. You’ve got this.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Delays, mistakes and a few surprises could impact your job, your work and even your health. Incidentally, those of you who own pets, should be extra vigilant this week, especially Thursday and Friday. Be careful to avoid an accident with your pet. Squabbles about shared property and inheritances might briefly bubble to the surface. Whatever this is – you can handle it. You might find relations with a close friend or spouse a bit vague, especially if someone doesn’t admit something. Well, we’ve all been there. It’s important to know if you’re going to crayon on the wall – do it behind the sofa.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Guard against sports accidents this week because there’s a strong possibility for this to happen. This week will also be challenging dealing with your kids; and likewise, it will be a rocky road for romance. When it comes to your kids, be vigilant and know where they are and what they’re doing to avoid accidents or any mishaps that could cause regrets. Be smart and be aware. When it comes to your main squeeze, you might have to agree to disagree. Plus, you don’t have to be right. Don’t take people for granted because you never know how long they will be in your life. Consider that no matter what your differences are – once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Be patient with home and with family this week for your own peace of mind – and theirs. Misunderstandings and outbursts, especially with relatives or parents you haven’t seen for a while could ruin the harmony you want at home. Domestic harmony is important because when things at home are running smoothly, this helps you in every other area of your life. (And vice versa!) Romance might disappoint because someone is deceptive. Don’t back your kids into a corner so that the only way out is to lie. Be patient with coworkers because you still have to work with them next week. These are the considerations on your plate, which you knew anyway because you’re futuristic and 50 years ahead of your time.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
This is an accident-prone week for you so pay attention to everything you say and do. Be aware. Be mindful. Don’t be hasty. Today I retired my new lovely slippers that kept tripping me up on area carpets. (Splat!) But I didn’t do it willingly. I stalled. I had to go through two (yes, two) near crazy falls before I admitted I was being stupid and reckless. I’m wearing my old slippers again – but I’m no longer tempting an accident waiting to happen. Slow down and think before you speak. Be clear in family discussions, especially if things are confusing. Be patient with kids and romantic partners. This way you will skate through this week with a smile.
