Gemini The Twins (May 21-June 20)
People in general may get on your nerves this week, especially if they are looking for intimate conversation. You probably need to find a good place in the natural world to go for walks or runs — use up some of that adrenaline. Avoid dwelling on old, unpleasant memories.
For All Signs: This spring Neptune, god of the sea, has entered Pisces and will remain for 14 years. So now the god of the sea is traveling in a water sign that also rules oil and gas, along with chemicals and photography, to name only a few. Neptune has a way of attacking our illusions and forcing us to see reality. It is remarkable how many obvious signals there are about our waste and abuse of the world's waters. We have oil spills that don't go away, we have nuclear radiation leaks, destructive fractal oil and gas developments, and methane leaks from natural gas. The god of the sea will not like what he finds here.
Aries: This is a complicated month related to finances. You may have some difficulty figuring out exactly where you are. Leave the credit cards at home if you have worries. A "new" cycle is beginning concerning finances and you need to clarify your present condition. A fresh beginning may be occurring in relationships as well.
Taurus: This is a highly significant period in your primary relationship(s). You have issues to work through and healing to do for both of you. Sidestep the temptation to drill your truth into the mind of another. If you do not share a consensus reality, then search for a higher perspective that includes both.
Cancer: This week could be characterized as one that requires adjustments or trade-offs on your part. You may be compelled by circumstances to spend your time in service of a situation that you would rather not. If you do, you may resent it. If you do not, you may feel a sense of guilt. This may plague you for two to three weeks, but then it is over.
Leo: You may be concerned about a friend in need this week. Perhaps you are reminded of past experiences of "abandonment," so you feel compelled to tend to this individual. Maybe this individual is yourself, dealing with old and painful memories of loss or hardship. Sometimes it is necessary to focus on the hard stuff, but it won't last long.
Virgo: Irritability and a tendency to short temper may be your companions this week. Lovers and/or children may easily get on your nerves. Financial issues may be nagging in the back of your mind. Plow some of that adrenalin into your exercise program and you will feel better.
Libra: You may need to concentrate in order to avoid critics, whether they be internal or external. Instead of blame, use the discipline to tackle a project that requires concentration. Use considerable care with contracts and business negotiations right now because misunderstandings may develop.
Scorpio: You are somewhat edgy and irritable this week. Parts of your mind are scattered into so many corners that it is hard to pull everything together. But you know clearly where boundaries need to be drawn and you are not hesitant to do so. The best of verbal warriors is concise and says what is needed, but no more.
Sagittarius: You are bringing the conclusion to an era of activity that had its beginnings late last summer. The pace was increased late in the fall, flowing into winter and through this spring it has been topmost on your mind. It is hardly closed, but over the summer you will be turning your attention to positive changes in your employment.
Capricorn: This is a good week to concentrate on a challenging mental project. It will work better for you if you are revising, editing or itemizing details. If you are producing a creative work, you are likely to be overly critical of the outcome. The Critic may advise, but it should not be allowed to condemn your efforts.
Aquarius: There is interference in your forward motion related to home, family or property concerns. People's schedules are not cooperating with your plans. More favorable aspects point toward short trips, activities concerning children or lovers or the pursuit of your creative interests.
Pisces: You may have an intuitive sense that something in your diet or routine medications are not good for you, even though it has been there forever. Perhaps the culprit is something that is normally in your environment that you can no longer physically tolerate. Begin a process of tracking it down and eliminating it from your life. You will feel better.
