Horoscope for May 20-26, 2009



Gemini The Twins: (May 20-July 19)

You may wonder if you came from another planet this week. Communications may be misunderstood, snarled, or lost altogether. Compensate for this problem by concentrating on speaking the truth as you know it, and listening very carefully to what the other tells you.

For All Signs: There are several cosmic aspects during the next two weeks that could bring up old grievances and feelings of righteous anger. Whether or not it seems justified, there is not a positive option for working it out at this time. If the old issue seems persistent, ask yourself why you need to become aware of it now. Everyone knows holding a grudge hurts only the one who carries it. If we don't learn how to stop the problem the first time around, it may come back in a different form for more practice. Don't set yourself up for failure.

Aries: Please give attention to the lead paragraph. Your ruling planet, Mars, is one of the anger makers of the week, and it could lead you into trouble if you follow that path. Unfortunately you are unable to release the feelings with direct confrontation.

Taurus: This is a time to remain in the background. Don't put yourself in front of others and don't attempt to run things. Your imagination could go overboard this week, and you might be overly reactive to imagined slights. Double check on facts, data and directions that come your way.

Cancer: After the 21st you have a highly positive period for inner work. That might include contemplation, journaling, meditation or dream work. You probably will be interested only in intimate conversations. Don't allow your time to be taken by meaningless social activities.

Leo: A cycle change this week shifts your attention to the areas of community, contacts and broader social relationships. Your social world becomes upbeat. Relationships look promising. This is a good time to develop your network of contacts.

Virgo: You may experience some physical discomfort due to environmental stressors. Those who suffer allergies need to use special caution in avoidance this week. Rest plenty and take your vitamins. You may need to take a temporary break in your workout regimen.

Libra: Don't allow fear and pessimism to interfere with your pleasure in life. If something is nagging at you, take a clear and direct look at it. Is there really anything there, or have you invented your own worry? The blues may be your companion for a couple of days, but the cloudy time is short.

Scorpio: The Powers That Be in your life may seem totally unyielding at this time. Remember that the small force of relentlessly dripping water can wear away a stone. Give attention to the most minor of details and prepare to move slowly and deliberately forward.

Sagittarius: The subject of this two- to three-week period is healing. Sharing with others and allowing ourselves to be included can be healing. Letting go of emotional garbage is truly healing. The physical body responds quickly to faith, hope, and optimism.

Capricorn: You may experience an emotional droop early in the week, in which you perceive yourself to be alone in the world. It is one of those times when we become aware that our loved ones can never know or understand fully what is inside of us. Your awareness of it will pass quickly.

Aquarius: You may feel draggy early in the week. However, travel or a change of scenery on the weekend will boost your spirits and clear your mind. At minimum, alter your routine and try something new for a refreshing outlook.

Pisces: Pay careful attention to communications and messages. You are prone to hear/read what you expect and that may not be what was intended. It is also possible you will tell yourself what you want to think this week. Seek confirmation from others before you draw negative conclusions.
