For All Signs: The eclipsed new moon in Taurus occurred on April 29. Taurus is a sign of manifestation, a time when spring is beginning to move toward summer. The cosmic message urges us to give attention to the concrete outcomes of our past behaviors. This is a time for clarifying our goals and questioning whether they match our genuine values. Money, as a symbol of worldly manifestation, will likely be a major subject in the news over the next few months. Something recently began which will likely affect how money is handled on a global scale. The mainstream public may not yet see a difference, but we will feel it soon.
Aries: Venus enters your sign and will travel with you through most of May. The subject of relationships will be very important during this time. If you have issues with a partner, this is the time to take a look at how better to deal with them. Negotiate but do not accuse.
Taurus: You will be making changes in your organization of material resources. Perhaps you have a new idea of how to make greater income. Between now and the end of June it is best to research your plan. Take action in July.
Gemini: You are holding a secret that gives you an improved sense of self-esteem. Meanwhile, there may be troubling issues in the sectors of investments, resources (time, money, energy), and/or creative projects. Luckily, the Twins are great at multi-tasking.
Cancer: April's eclipses may have left you thoroughly spent. Take very good care of yourself or your body may absorb all the stress. Your sense of security has been disturbed and you may not be sure whether a source of trouble is really there or not. Old patterns are coming back into your life.
Leo: You have a guardian angel in the background that is helping you rise toward the top. It may be a real person who is pulling strings in your favor or it might be your intuition. Listen to it and follow its lead. You have the support of authority figures at this time.
Virgo: Small details of paperwork will be in your way and slow forward motion. Equipment breakage or software snafus may interfere. Be especially careful with your high-tech equipment. Use your virus and malware detectors often.
Libra: You may encounter difficulties with shared resources. This could include a partner's income, insurance payoffs or tax challenges. Do not sign contracts now unless absolutely necessary. Venus enters the 7th house of relationships mid-week and will be there until late May. She brings improvements in clientele, social life and partnerships.
Scorpio: This is not your smoothest week. Details may nag your mind and your time like pecking ducks. You and significant others are not having the best of communications right now. You may be in the mood to nit-pick. You will generally feel better if you work alone.
Sagittarius: Those who traverse your daily life are really helpful to you in meeting your goals. They bring both information and encouragement, brightening your days. The financial pressure of the past several months will begin to lighten on its own and your attitude will rise at the same time.
Capricorn: Aspects particularly favor romance and creative efforts. You are in an effective position. Others agree with your guidance and leadership. A project begun near the New Year is beginning to blossom now. At the very least, you can see that it is on track.
Aquarius: Your power of concentration is deep at this time. It is important that you use it for the good in your life rather than in self-criticism and obstructive thinking. If you cannot stop the negative self-talk, focus on something else. Walk the dog. Wash dishes. Move your body in order to disengage from a negative thought.
Pisces: You are in the midst of healing a romantic relationship. The object of your affection may be the one who did the damage or someone new who soothes previous heartfelt pain. Communications, whether oral or written, are favored now. Education, given or received, is also given a green light.
