Gemini The Twins (May 21-June 20)
It is time to dig deeply into yourself so you can be as fully honest as possible within important relationships, including the self. Speak from your heart and do not allow your ego, which wants only to look good, to take your words or thoughts hostage.
For All Signs: The planets Venus and Mars will be conjoined on May 18. Venus, the ancient goddess of love and art, carries broad feminine and romantic symbolism. Mars is the warrior god and prevails over masculine territory. The symbolism suggests the conclusion of one relationship and the beginning of another. Alternatively the conjunction speaks of the beginning and ending of episodes or cycles within a single, ongoing relationship. The current cycle began in May 2009. This conjunction marks the beginning of a fresh cycle that will last for 23 months. Take advantage of this opportunity to repair rifts and achieve positive closures. Note new beginnings in all relationships, whether romantic, platonic, or business.
Aries: Issues concerning partnerships and spending of resources are front and center at this time. You may be discussing how to utilize joint resources or what is the best spending/saving strategy. In some way this marks the closure of one cycle and the beginning of the next in your relationship.
Taurus: This month's Venus/Mars alignment brings you face to face with your identity versus your relationship. You must consciously evaluate how you will manage to meet your personal needs and yet remain connected to the "other" in your life. This is a 22-month project, so it doesn't have to be done overnight.
Cancer: The tide for you has been extraverted for a few weeks. Now you may be finding yourself irritable with people. Give yourself a rest. The Crabs must have good "shell" time in order to be at their best in the world. Whatever circumstances are causing you anxiety are passing soon.
Leo: A small cycle change this week shifts your attention to the areas of community, contacts and broader social relationships. This is a good time to develop your network of contacts. Don't allow a disappointment to darken your attitude. It is temporary. You may become more involved with other people's children for a few weeks.
Virgo: There is considerable thought and activity in your 9th solar house. You may be traveling or making plans to travel at a later time. You may be thinking about educational needs and planning classes. You might be taking legal action. Some will be in contact with the publishing industry.
Libra: You may be feeling pressured and impatient this week. It seems that you have concerns on the topic of debt and/or investments. A partner or your inner self is encouraging you to invest. You feel the need to act, but Saturn in your sign is telling you to slow down and don't take risks. Paying off debt is the better option. Delay risk.
Scorpio: You may be in the midst of a "new deal" related to partnership and clientele. Perhaps you feel you need to raise your fee or price if you are selling something. Or maybe you are ready to make a new statement about who you are in your relationship. The topic at hand is undergirded with the subject of resources, how to share and how to spend.
Sagittarius: Daily requirements and little details are nibbling away at your energy like a pack of ducks. What you have on your menu is tedious and somewhat irritating, but this cycle will move on and things improve soon. You need to refocus your attention on good exercise and diet. High level endorphins will improve your attitude.
Capricorn: At last! Some of the heaviness you have been experiencing is lifting. You are ready to give time and attention to fun, play, romance and enjoying your children. Creativity is increasing. It would be really good for you to color or paint, just to give that left worrying brain a total breather.
Aquarius: You have multiple demands, some of which are coming from the inside of yourself. You may be faced with a challenge of "guilt" versus anger. If you do what you are pressured from the outside to do, you won't feel guilty, but you will feel anger. If you don't do what is expected, then you will likely feel "guilt" of the neurotic type. This time is brief.
Pisces: You may have had a sense of not feeling quite well since early April. Your body has made a shift and is no longer able to tolerate a variety of chemicals that are common in your life. Take a good look at your habits and seek information. This is a good time to pursue information that may heal you emotionally or physically.
