The Twins (May 20 -- June 21)
You may be caught between a rock and a hard place this week. Your natural response could be to let loose with a roar. For best results, set aside all temptations to play control and domination roles. Make an effort to see all sides clearly and to discuss things fairly.
For All Signs Saturn and Chiron are each pulling at the earth from opposite directions. This is the last in a series of 7 contacts which began in September 2003. During this period of 33 months, we have been asked to confront our dark side, the one that can wound others in revenge for past injuries. Choose how to react to the energy. One option is to live in fear and strike at our enemies. Or we can imagine how it would be in the other pair of shoes and open our hearts to the possibility of healing.
Aries This is a time in which you are running into hard reality. If you are to make headway now it will cost you tremendously in energy, money or other resources. Expressing anger is a bad idea. Starting over at a better time would be more rewarding.
Taurus Fantasy may occupy a large percentage of your time right now. Daydreaming may offer some highly creative and inventive ideas. But don't allow your glassy-eyed self to expect others to match your romantic reveries. That is a recipe for disaster in the long run.
Cancer The summer solstice will occur on June 21. This is the cross-quarter holiday that always heralds your upcoming birthday. It represents a return to the best part of your annual year. Focus attention on yourself and your new plans for the year.
Leo You may be feeling angry at others, but you can tell that expressing your feelings will probably create more trouble than it is worth. Either your progeny or a lover may be trying to force your hand into a manipulative game. If you see this, simply back off.
Virgo Circumstances have you trapped with no easy way out except to acquiesce to the needs of others. Under these types of conditions, our bodies take over and make a choice to be sick or indisposed, thus providing the only possible exit. Register your needs to prevent a minor health breakdown.
Libra You could have impossibly high expectations of a lover, a child or a job. We all look for someone or something else to save us sometimes. Don't allow your attitude to rise and fall with what happens now. Your disappointment is passing.
Scorpio Cautious foresight, self-discipline and intelligent planning are the only workable operations in your life right now. Your career could be at risk. Although you would love to run off on a train of optimism, it will not go anywhere unless you have worked long and hard to make it happen.
Sagittarius There is a problem between you and another that you just cannot avoid confronting at this time. Step aside from a power play that will create resentment in the future. Search for an appropriate time and place to state your position and allow the other to do the same.
Capricorn The reality of life is throwing you a curve during this period. The issue may be connected to shared finances, sexual self-expression or debts. Little flows easily now, so bite the bullet and do the grunt work required to accomplish your aims for the long haul.
Aquarius Those who are married or in partnership may have reason to wonder why this month. Your partner seems angry and resentful, although you are not the real cause. Confrontation will simply make a big scene and accomplish little right now. Give it healing time.
Pisces Give special attention to your attitude at this time. You are prone to under or overvalue your personal positions. Of the two, it is probably better to play down your opinions. The cosmos is not treating arrogant individuals well right now.
